According to some news sources Powell was fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

I just knew when I saw this thread that someone would try to use his death for some stupid anti-vax argument. No one has claimed that the vaccinated cannot die from COVID. Such deaths are rare and far fewer than deaths of those who are not vaccinated, however. And Powell also had a form of blood cancer that inhibited his immune system. There are many things Powell did that I disagreed with, but he was an American patriot and deserves better.

And we all just knew, if somebody brought it up, you would jump on it with a dingbat response.

The COVID-19 vaccine is NOT a vaccine. It does NOT prevent the disease. Until the CDC revised the definition of a vaccine, the products touted as vaccine would not be so labeled.


That said dufus, this thread ought to be a tribute to a Great American. Unfortunately, that definition is also undergoing a change.

Sad.

Colin Powel came from nothing. Went to ROTC and made quite something of himself. I did not always agree with him politically, but respect for him is well earned and, from true Americans, he has it.

As for the COVID-19, he had that as well. So sad...;So what.

I respect Powell's military service and the manner in which he made something of himself from a somewhat modest childhood. I did however disagree with many of his political positions.

But he was a patriot and deserves our respect. RIP Gen Powell!

Reminds me of every time someone of notoriety that is unvaccinated dies from Covid, the left is all over it.

Fact is that we should NEVER politicize the deaths of anyone, especially someone that has served our country honorably. I just wish the Left would adhere to that standard. But I expect that the next publicized shooting will have the same left leaning characters out there pushing for gun control.

No one made an anti vax argument, it was just an observation. And here is another one. I just got off the phone with a friend that got Covid, he was "vaccinated". It sounds like he was far sicker than me, but it was for a shorter time, so maybe the shot helped, it's hard to say.

We are about the same age, and both physically fit, but I don't know if it is better to have a worse case for a shorter time, or milder case longer.

I guess it is different for everyone

An observation with an eye-roll emoji. Don't be naive. It wasn't just an "observation." It was an attempt to call into question the efficacy of COVID vaccines.
