Alien Abduction & Vaccine Conspiracies
Born in 1952, the great pandemic of that time was polio, for which there is no cure and prompted many childhood nightmares for myself and others.
"Polio is a viral disease that affects the nervous system, causing paralysis. It spreads through direct contact with people who have the infection.
Outbreaks occurred regularly in the United States through the 1950s, with two major polio outbreaks in 1916 and in 1952. Of the 57,628 reported cases in 1952, there were 3,145 deaths.
In 1955, Dr. Jonas Salk’s vaccine was approved. (Italic mine) It was quickly adopted throughout the world. By 1962, the average number of cases dropped to 910. The CDCTrusted Source reports that the United States has been polio-free since 1979." (https://www.healthline.com/.../worst-disease-outbreaks...)
Thank you, Dr. Salk, for alleviating my greatest childhood nightmare. I was terrified of ending up inside what they call "an iron lung" (see pic above) for the rest of my life.
Also, (picture left) I remember standing with my mother in that long line in front of the Altoona High School to receive the polio vaccine.
So, then, to all of you, CONSPIRACY THEORISTS...I am so happy you were not around in 1955 when this vaccine was approved, or my worst nightmare may have come true.
So, when the mother-ship returns you to Earth, feel free to chide Doctor Fauci, et al., but the stupidity of your farfetched theories is far outweighed by the reality of the deaths of nearly a half-million people, a number that we are likely to reach before immunization's taken effect.
A number greater than all the Americans killed between the years 1941-1943 in the second world war, and more than were killed in all of the Viet Nam war.
If you don't want the vaccine, refuse it, let someone else have it.
If you want to exercise your RIGHTS not to wear a mask, then don't! I could care less. Just keep yourself far away from my family and me.
Finally, if or when, you lay in that bed, gasping for your last breaths as those hundreds of thousands before you have; reach up to that nurse that's holding your hand, and with your fingertip, touch that tiny piece of cloth covering his/her face, and know that one like it may have kept you around a few more years.
