You Hated Grandma, Right?
[Comments enabled]

You ought to read this folks.

600,000 Americans, including probably your Grandmother if she died of Covid, are dead because of it.

If the jabs go sideways you might be dead because of it too.

Contemplate the gist of that piece: Race, gender, whatever -- are the alleged foundations of medicine now.

I've seen this in public material from places like Johns Hopkins.  Conform go the "woke" agenda or be cast out.  Consider whatever woke decides today or be ejected, ridiculed, censored.

Higher education has done this for decades now.  If you're of a certain group then you get an "extra bonus" for diversity.  Employers have done it too.  It's wildly unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment but never fear, the Supreme Court is here to say that "addressing something that happened in the past makes it ok."

Except it's not ok; that's claiming that the result of my great-great-grandfather's actions are my sin for which I must pay.

They're not, any more than a black man's great-great grandfather, who perhaps sold his villagers into slavery, is his responsibility and those are his actions.

Nope.

Indeed our Constitution prohibits attainder (corruption of blood) specifically even for an act of actual Treason, the highest offense of all, in Article III Section 3.

I’ve heard from doctors who’ve been reported to their departments for criticizing residents for being late. (It was seen by their trainees as an act of racism.) I’ve heard from doctors who’ve stopped giving trainees honest feedback for fear of retaliation. I’ve spoken to those who have seen clinicians and residents refuse to treat patients based on their race or their perceived conservative politics.

The article goes on to talk about whole areas of research that are considered "off limits."  Where have we seen that in the last year and change?  Oh, fraudulent studies, like the retracted one in The Lancet that condemned hundreds of thousands of Americans to die?  It slammed HCQ as worthless and even dangerous when in fact it was not.  Henry Ford Hospital System, huge and highly-respected medical group in SE Michigan, came under attack for developing and successfully using a HCQ-based protocol for Covid-19.  They reported their results and were instantly slammed by the woke Orange-Man-Bad mob, issuing a press release shortly thereafter saying they would have no further public comment on treatment protocols.

How many died in Michigan because of that?  How many died elsewhere in the nation because of it?  Did Henry Ford look further and use Ivermectin as it became known as both useful and then superior to HCQ, or perhaps investigate synergy between the two?  I have no idea; they never, as far I know, registered or ran another trial, nor publicly reported further results.

HENRY FORD HAS OVER 1,500 PHYSICIANS; the "woke mob" silenced the professional opinions of each and every one of them and almost-certainly led to the deaths of thousands in Michigan alone.

How many of the 175 dead in this county would be alive had that not happened and this debate played out in the medical sphere over the last 15 months?  Would you even want a jab if that debate had played out and 90+% of the time as soon as you got sick you used $30 worth of cheap, off-patent medication and never went to the hospital at all?

We don't know -- but I assure you some of them would be, because that's what the data tells us.

How scared would you have been all last year and would you line up to roll up your sleeve if almost nobody had died?  If, when you started feeling like crap you got a handful of cheap pills and a steroid inhaler at the Urgent Care or doctor's office along with a few pills for everyone in your household, you went home and in a couple of days everything was fine -- and none of your family members got it?  If the care-givers in the nursing homes used same as a preventative, never got it and thus never transmitted it?  If all the old people used it as a preventative and nearly all of them never got sick?

Where was the professional debate on everything in c19early.com?  NOWHERE!

You can't speak of any of that on Facebook, Instragram or Twitter nor on any of the other social media outlets such as Youtube.  You in fact can't cite medical studies on any of these drugs nor can a physician speak to any of it, including their experience with them, either.  Dr. Kory, an actual front-line physician treating patients, had his Senate Testimony removed by Youtube.  But you can sure talk about and advocate Remdesivir, a $3,000 drug which has been shown worthless in a random controlled trial!

Now let's go back and apply the same sort of skepticism to the now-known bogus PCR tests.  How many were counted as "cases" that really weren't?  How many were quarantined and thrown out of work when they weren't sick, stoking fear in the community?  We know this was rampant because Elon Musk proved it conclusively, taking four tests in sequence on the same day with two coming back each of positive and negative.  Obviously an utterly-enormous percentage of the tests we administered were no better than flipping a coin.  Oh by the way our local WalMart is now selling BinaxNOW tests (same technology and possibly identical to the ones Musk took, and the same ones the Trump White House was using) for cheap out of a standing display right near the door.  Come and get it; who knows how accurate they are especially considering you're not a lab tech and might screw it up!

The article above cites the case of Norman Wang, who published a paper arguing that merit is the only thing that should count in cardiology.  Frankly, if you disagree with that you're nuts.  Indeed, merit should be all that counts in any profession, but especially in medicine where the less-capable doctor may well be the one who plays "assembly-line" with your body instead of clinician -- and you die as a consequence.

We didn't see any of that in the last 15 or so months, have we?  Oh wait -- we have; to the tune of about 600,000 corpses.

Do you think that's a singular incident?

I know personally it is not as I know physicians -- including some very good ones in certain specialties -- who have had it happen to them.  In fact they're so good that were I to need that particular specialty I might travel halfway across the country and pay cash to obtain their advice and treatment.

Are there other clinicians who are equally good?  I'm sure there are.  But when you displace people on political ideology and allow corporate medicine and "woke" culture to take the place of merit you run the risk of being dead.

You don't like being dead, right?

Do you want the guy or gal who got straight "A"s in medical school or is the dude who got a "D-" ok?

They're all called the same thing after graduation: "Doctor."

Think about this folks:

In it, the doctors argue that in order to address discrepancies in health-care access and outcomes, hospitals should commit to “preferentially admitting patients historically denied access to certain forms of medical care.” That is, they should admit people to health services based on their skin color. 

Or perhaps we choose "treatments" based solely on who pays the most and deliberately censor and even blackball those who speak of something that costs $2 and might work?

Never mind that racial preferences for referrals and treatment is wild-eyed stupid.  We know, for example, that an enormous percentage of cardiac stents are inappropriately used.  Yes, if you're having a heart attack they will save your life and as such they absolutely have a good and proper place in medicine.  But many cath labs are basically $20,000 check printers, since the specialists in them are paid by the procedure and anyone they can get on the table generates a bill.  Is that the right thing to do?  Not all the time and that's not a entirely safe procedure either; no medical treatment or drug is.  If you stick one in someone who doesn't really need it the best outcome is that he or she is out the $20 large.  The worst is that they die on the table which does happen when their underlying condition wasn't going to kill them at all.

Again: Do you want the guy who got the "A" and will tell you "don't do it" or the dude who got the "D-" and all he cares about is the $20,000 because he either isn't good enough to know the difference or is being directed by some big hospital network to take the money and he's afraid to speak up about the scam as he neither trusts his expertise nor does he believe he'll get another job if he sticks up the middle finger?

Meritocracy is why you have electric lighting.  It's why you have an Internet.  It's why you have automobiles.  It's why you have flush toilets and don't have to go **** in a hole in the back yard, or in the gutter of the street.  It's why dozens of things we take for granted every single day exist.

Much of "woke" culture doesn't really impact all that much of importance to ordinary people.  Do I really care about CPAs being white or black, and is a difference in competence all that important?  Probably not -- right up until someone embezzles a bunch of money and then suddenly it might matter.  The better CPA might catch it where the lesser does not.

But when it comes to medicine its a different story, unless you want the modern "car mechanic" who really isn't one at all.  He plugs in the computer, it tells him that "Sensor X" is bad, and he goes and gets one out of the parts cage and installs it.  He doesn't have to think because the machine does it for him.  He's a parts-swapper, basically.  Perhaps very highly-trained and with a very expensive suite of tools but he doesn't have to think about much and that's exactly how the dealership likes it.  It's McDonalds in the car repair business; the hamburger sort of sucks, but it sucks the same way and is identical everywhere, no matter which store you go into.

That works for a lot of things in our economy.  McDonalds and Starbucks have become utterly enormous on that exact basis.  But if you've ever gone into MAAS in Ft. Walton Beach and ordered an espresso, you got a really good coffee.  If you've ever gone into Intelligentsia in Chicago, well, you have had an outstanding espresso.

Why?

Because in those two places people knew what they were doing.  They were artisans.  In MAAS you had people that knew how to run the machine the old-fashioned way, which beats the automatic push-button coffee you get in Starbucks.  Granted, if the clerk in there is stupid, you get bilge water.  But MAAS trains people and they know what they're doing.  Ditto at Intelligentsia but there they even go further because they not only roast on site they're really picky about it too.

But the Starbucks "barista" couldn't walk in there, go behind the counter, and pull a drinkable espresso shot.  He or she is simply not capable of it; they're not good enough.  They might be able to be trained, but off the street?  Nope.

I could do it, because I have a machine here at the house.  So could Sarah.  But the average schlub st Starbucks?  Nope.

The average repair guy in the car dealer today couldn't disassemble, clean, put back together and re-calibrate a carburetor on a 1970s V8.  He probably couldn't set the points and timing either.  He doesn't know how.  He has no computer for that.  If it doesn't run right he doesn't know where to start because he has to actually be able to think.  Some of those folks in the old shops were really good, and some not-so-good.  That was the time before assembly-line "service."

Unfortunately the human body isn't a computer-assisted car.  It's far more complex, and far more unique than an espresso machine and the beans that go in it, starting with green and being roasted.  The nuances of that are one thing, but in the human body despite the claims of many we understand only a small part of it.

We're really good with assembly-line medicine if you get in a car accident and break your leg, or if you get shot.  Anatomy is pretty simple, after all, and there's really only one way the pieces of your leg bone are supposed to go back together.  If you have holes in your body from a gunshot that ain't so tough either.  We're the best in the world when it comes to trauma, and it's mostly because we do a lot of it and anatomy really isn't all that complex, so "assembly line" medicine is not only ok it has a low error rate.

But when it comes to everything else -- not so much.

Witness Covid-19.  We had clinicians who were canceled because they were trying and using drugs that we'd had for decades in other indications.  Who gives a crap about the color of someone's skin when the bottom line is that the person who got sick does not die?  Are we really going to play cancel culture and essentially toss out on their ear anyone who is making people not die when others are failing to do so?

Your mother, grandfather or other family is dead because you let this go on.

This isn't abstract any more folks.  Now you're being told to get stabbed by the same cretins who killed your grandmother, even if you already had Covid and recovered There is not one scintilla of scientific evidence supporting such a thing for any disease, ever, in the history of mankind.

I had chicken pox -- the old-fashioned way.  That shot is very safe, by the data, which by the way took 20 years to accumulate and trust.  But if someone attempted to tell me that I had to be jabbed with it I'd shove it up their ass sideways.  There is exactly zero scientific justification for that and everyone knows it.  Likewise if you already had the measles before there was a measles shot.  I got the shot when I was a kid, but not long before I got it there was no measles shot.  If you had the measles and then the shot became available nobody ever suggested you get jabbed for that; that would be insane.

We have gone through 15 months of Cancel Medicine.  Physicians who found through their own practice how to keep people from getting seriously ill and dying have been pilloried and canceled because they disagreed in their professional judgement or popped their head up on the wrong TV show.  Think about how stupid that is and then consider that it wasn't just individual physicians; the entire Henry Ford Hospital System was "canceled" for the same reason -- because their protocol happened to include something a politician advocated and that instantly branded a highly respected medical group worthy of being silenced.

How many of the 500,000+ dead died for this exact reason?

How do you advance knowledge if you silence some of the people who are attempting to be in the debate or, in response to their professional opinions, label them for political -- or racial -- reasons? 

What you get when you do that is what we got -- assembly line, computer and large-corporate driven zombies who perform as directed.  There is zero medical expertise required to do that job.  Other than actual surgical procedures computer could take your symptoms and spit out a prescription.  Person "X" shows up with "Y" symptoms, give them "Z" or have someone perform procedure "Z1".  Period.

No learning takes place, nobody advances the science, the "one true way" is all that is done and in this case we now know that was corrupted, you in the American public not only let it happen half the nation actually cheered it on and screamed "Orange Man Bad" instead of demanding that those who wanted to cancel this or that person shut the **** up and let the results speak for themselves.

As a result 500,000+ people are dead.

YOU killed your grandmother by allowing this, America.

You must have really hated her -- and perhaps yourself -- if you're going to remain in your chair and allow this to go unpunished, or even worse, keep advocating and supporting it.

After all the next person who dies as a direct result may well be you -- or your child.

And if you or they do you will deserve that outcome too.

When the prioritization for the vaccine was being developed, I was surprised to see open advocacy for vaccinating some lower-risk groups before older people because whites are over-represented in older age groups. I had long seen the issue of reducing health care disparities being elevated, but not that bluntly.

If things go to single-payer, the treatment protocols might look pretty ugly for some parts of society.

I lost trust in the medical profession years ago. One of my parents and a good friend are dead due to "assembly-line procedures".

I feel thankful they passed before this latest medical fiasco. I also had a doctor who told me his group recommended Remdesivir when I mentioned HCQ and ivermectin. These people are not allowed to think, only to prescribe the latest money-maker. Why do we even need them when software to fix our auto could cure what ails the vast majority. I imagine any meds they suggest are tabulated and subject to a monthly "peer review". Going outside the system has consequences in their future employment.

I recently read about Dr. David Hosack (1769-1835) and his attempts to grow herbal plants from which early medicines were extracted. He also sought to educate others in their use and applications. Today he would be branded as a kook by the woke mob.

This article got me to thinking...

We are witnessing the death of all reason and logic as the United States and the western world degenerate into societies that do not value life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I could never have imagined the speed of this decline. I will not live to see the worst of it.

So what do we do? As I try to expose the fraud I receive blank stares or "so what." My intelligent and conservative friends take the jab, even though they do not believe most government propaganda. Can anyone trust medical advice they receive now? Will it be given because it's politically correct? Will my medical care be tailored because of my race? Am I expected to continue to work hard, pay my taxes, and obey the law while I am targeted by the government and corporations and the culture because I am not of a protected class? If I save my money for a rainy day will it be confiscated through zero percent interest rates and high inflation?

Paul tells us to "make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands." This is good advice and it is mostly how I have tried to live my life. How do I lead a quiet life when the culture in the US is increasingly corrupt at all levels? Where do I go to escape the insanity? Where can I work where I'm not bombarded by "white man bad" indoctrination? How can I be entertained by the filth that is now so pervasive on TV? How can I enjoy sports games that have turned into woke religion propagation mechanisms?

This is depressing.

@Blanca. I feel your pain and share your thoughts. It is very depressing. You are anything but alone on this. But we cant depress ourselves to death. We must find something to be happy about during all this. Easier said than done for sure. For me, I was born for this time for some reason. And Ill accept that as a gift. Even if I dont know the reason yet. Chin up. Yes I know this sounds lame but its all I have to hold on to. Lol.

Faux Snooze highlighted the woke medical care story in recent broadcasts. I'm not shocked at all. As is often discussed about American schools being indoctrination academies, this causes newly minted members of the workforce to infect every part of our economy. I see this from the pipeline of newly minted government workers recruited from America's colleges. Stuff like this needs to be fixed from the ground up. The free state governors in our country can take steps to protect alternative (conservative) points of view (protected free speech) by withholding or threatening to withhold taxpayer funds for schools they judge to be going too far. They can even do the same thing against hospitals and hospital networks they find to be discriminating. The governors have a lot of power to fix this.

On the micro level, I think that fighting wokeness (a form of group think) comes back the idea of credibility (as it does with many issues in this culture war). In my sub-topic/niche in government (DOD), I have earned substantial credibility over the years due to being right more often than not, even when I was challenging widely accepted assessments - I've gotten to say "I told you so" very often. This credibility comes with the price of getting feedback and constructive criticism less often than I would like when sending articles and analysis out for peer review. Colleagues have become gun-shy to engage with me, because I'm usually right. Personally I welcome private e-mails and chat conversations with these colleagues so that they and I can "save face" and we can hopefully arrive at a better product. I see the doctors in the Oped having their private Zoom conferences as a "support group." But I assume they also have a professional network of trusted colleagues that they can still collaborate with, who haven't been assimilated into the group think orthodoxy and woke hive mind.

I agree with the article's characterization of wokeness as part of a cultural revolution in the US. Back in the Cold War, their was the old "Domino Theory" for Communism. I think each state and its people are choosing sides in the ongoing revolution - whether to remain a free state or become a socialist state. As the occupant of the White House changes periodically, one side or the other in this (so far) bloodless revolution gains significant resources helping them gain or maintain ground in this fight. Fundamentally this is a war of ideas and information. So conservatives, need to work at all levels from grassroots to the rich billionaire mega-donors to support friendly media sources with enough reach and resources to fight back against the powerful and well funded left-wing media industrial complex.

Woke is just a label of disguise for Marxism.

The Western world has been infiltrated by Marxists.

Every institution has been corrupted. A very few demonstrate some courage to stand against the currents. None speak with absolute moral clarity. They cannot do so without being destroyed by the Marxists.

We all know what the Chinese did at Tianneman square. How many US authorities see that response as a role model for dealing with dissident Americans? Censorship and suppression are happening in plain view - with real death and suffering the consequence - and the "establishment" gives its blessing.

May we remember the words of Thomas Paine:

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.

Truth!

Also, the author of the oped on wokeness in the medical system got it wrong that the revolution is bloodless. As Karl often highlights, including in the current article, people are harmed and killed by decisions made by people in the medical and pharmaceutical industries - decisions influenced by wokeness, corruption, and incompetence in the individuals and in the system.

This may be the next dark age. No doubt. History is a good place to start.

Another is The Crowd by Gustave Le Bon, a study of crowd mentality from the 1800s and quite good. To confess I am still working through it and it reads like it was written last week. Why? I have been curious about how crowd manias end to get in front of things. You want to fight woke, this is a good place to start. FWIW.

As to the article, Karl you're probably preaching to the choir for most of this. On the up side, many of the woke peoples lined up to get themselves jabbed with basically what is amounting to a bioweaponized vaccine. Self cleaning oven. But the aftermath is the larger concern.

That said, any use of data at this point is like reading a Choose Your Own Adventure Book--

600,000 people died of covid-19.

If you believe this is fact goto page 25.

If you believe this is crap because the PCR tests are unreliable and used to gin up the numbers goto page 32.


In that is the best summary of the world I now live in. I went to page 32 BTW, in case you were wondering...

I think this "woke" **** is a collimation of a multi-decade process. It started with the liberalism of the late 60's to early 70's. It seemed to go away starting in the late 70's and did not come back until the gangster rap era of the early 90's. I think it has been a slow build-up since the early 90's.

It may go away. The Christian Right movement is instructive here. It was a generational phenomenon. The Christian right movement started in the late 70's and was comprised of mostly Silents as well as a very narrow demographic spike centered around people born in 1963. The Silents have largely passed away and those that haven't are in their late 70's and older. This is why the Christian right movement began declining about 15 years ago and is largely gone today.

I think this woke thing is the last gasp of the 60's liberals, most of whom are late Silents and early Boomers. They are at their peak in government. As they fade into the sunset, it is possible this "woke" stuff will follow the Christian right into oblivion.

South Africa saw these Marxist ideologies during the time of pushing out the apartheid government.

The principle is very simple - make the country ungovernable through stoking racial tension, hatred and fear. It works.

My generation believed that a true rainbow nation could form once the yoke of apartheid (Nazi-based ideology) was broken. We pressed for change.

The paradigm changed. The big money exited offshore. SA is now run by Marxists and crooks. Affirmative action (reverse racism) has smashed industry. The social contract between haves and have-nots has still not yet been established.

In the end, the rainbow nation became the dung heap. Sad. We wished that it have been a rainbow-colored eutopia.

The US, UK is now facing these same ideologies. It will not be an easy few years ahead for you as this racial-rupturing ideology takes hold.

I read some time ago of something similar happening with symphony orchestras. When auditioning new orchestra members the procedure was not to see who was playing - only to listen so that how the person looked could not be taken into account.

Now this eminently sensible way of doing things has been discarded. Why? Well, you see, hiring the best players (solely on merit) was not producing a sufficiently diversified orchestra!

Of course, this will only produce orchestras that aren't as good as they might have been. Not a matter of life or death I know, but as a classical music lover I find it profoundly disheartening.

@ Blanca: It is happening fast, but it's not hard to see why. Medicine offers an analogy. Plenty of people have health issues they are able to compensate for, such as early COPD. Although there's damage, it's not readily apparent because there's residual strength. Once the ability to compensate fails, things get very bad very fast.

Our institutions have been failing for decades, but there was a lot of residual strength. That's just about gone now and all hell's breaking loose.

This is the 21st century version of the descent into the Dark Ages. There is no way to advance any discipline, science or profession under the woke ideology.

There is no building up - only tearing down. I want a doctor who can critically think and make recommendations that are in my best interests.

I want an engineer who can add 2+2=4. Would you trust a bridge or a building designed by someone who thinks 2+2 can equal any number you want it to equal?

People have become delusional. If you want crazy, that's on you. I have no interest in being forced to participate in your mental illness.

Why not offer bariatric surgery to those who are anorexia? Or maybe we should amputate perfectly functional limbs of people who think they are trans-able?

My workplace is all about diversity, belonging and inclusion. That means we celebrate every perversion and deviancy along with every person of color.

If you are a white, straight, Christian, male (or woman) ... Then you are automatically a hateful racist bigot. Simply based on the color of your skin.

Martin Luther King would be turning in his grave. "Content of character not color of skin" be damned. We are now living an unimaginable nightmare.

Sad to say but it may not be such a bad thing that the liberals and progressives and the woke crowd were first in line for the death jab. Self cleaning oven indeed.

When the "helping hand" of government decided to improve healthcare in America, the rot set in. It's out of control now, as you amply demonstrated. I say let it crash and burn.

I read some time ago of something similar happening with symphony orchestras. When auditioning new orchestra members the procedure was not to see who was playing - only to listen so that how the person looked could not be taken into account.


I've suggested something similar for ALL hiring: deny the decision makers knowledge of what color any of the applicants are. It was rejected as impractical for some reason.

It is a hell of a note, when it is safer and more productive to go to the health food store and the farm store for treatment than the local doctors office. When the model equals, go home and hide and, if you get really bad, come back and we will kill you, for what are we paying?

I have a couple of black tenants, who had the crap at New Years. I got a call, on the first, they were stranded at the hospital and went to get them. The mother actually told me someone at the hospital said to try to stay out of the hospital, or they would likely die. I told her the same thing and maybe it was me instead of them. Of course, they got no treatment. I will add, the son had a hard time recovering and I asked her, if he was staying in bed. She said yes and I told her to get his ass up, or he would get pneumonia. He got better.

There were more tests in my county than we have people. I didn't get mine, so someone got more than 1. I know they were required to do some things. I may have had a mild case, in February last year, been asymptomatic or avoided infection. I might be typhoid Mary, for all I know, but very few people I have been in contact with have had it, confirmed.

After over a year of this stuff, with the masses being terrorized (Don't think I wasn't worried, with Thomas coughing his ass off, in my back seat, as I had my window cracked on a 30 degree morning), there are 3 things that are apparent. One, you can't hide out and avoid a virus, once it has circulated in the country, unseen for 120 days. Second, it made only certain people sick. Third, the medical authorities employed the worst strategy, denied treatment and despite massive evidence to the contrary, haven't changed their tactics

What is going on in the Western world? Tyranny by experts, who clearly aren't experts comes to mind. They are shoving bull**** down our throats. Critical race theory is a made up bunch of bull****, to rewrite history. Straight out of 1984 and the communist rule book. White supremacy equals support for the bill of rights and a pushback on this rewritten book of lies. Second, we have been brutally attacked by the authorities, using their fake science and denying remedies for a virus that threatens a minority. Follow the science means believe the bull****. Third, Climate change, reparations and follow the same line of telling lies, suppressing the truth and building a consensus among fools to volunteer to destroy themselves.

The only conclusion to draw from all of this is we are in the midst of an establishment run conspiracy. It doesn't take a tinfoil hat to look at the fiction being pushed as the truth. This isn't about orange man bad. It is about pushing forward totalitarian actions designed to put the American population under the thumb of a few oligarch. Trump was merely a threatened detour from these totalitarian plans. Remember the mess and the power of this fiasco centers in the established bureaucracy, headed by power hungry tyrants, like Anthony Fauci. These people want power, not solutions. WE are paying for our own destruction

We are living in a make it up as we go along society. We are voting in rigged elections for rigged candidates. We are living under tyrannical media that is now there solely to protect lies and hide truths. There are Orwellian labels, for everything. Settled science, no opposition. Biden said, follow the science as proposed by Fauci, who was hiding the Science. Voting Rights means the process of rigging elections being enforced. Science is climate denial being outlawed. Being white and supporting the Constitution means terrorism.

The terrorists are calling the rest of us names. They are meting out justice based on the color of your skin and benefits too. We are in a sea of lies and don't dare disagree, or you are a terrorist, a white supremacist or a racist. They used to brand you as an anti-government Constitutionalist. You can't make some of this stuff up. Now is the time to wake up or we could see the definition of a free society equal what we have now in China and envy it.

@Susan, the dark ages are where we are headed, if they succeed. The actions being taken under the guise we need to stop the sun will be enough to get us there, along with the starvation and conflict that will follow. History of a free society will be erased and only the hiding of this history, in caves, like the dead seas scrolls, might save it, for some future society.

I might add, the actions being taken, in the first world, to battle something they can stop, is putting the entire system, in a hole. I might add, there have been things done in the education system, besides pushing fake history. Seems I recall them doing away with cursive writing. I suspect non cursive writing is next. Learning to write was a pain in the ass, for me and a lot of exercise was needed. Next is the need to be able to do math with pencil and paper. I avoided calculators in college, choosing the hard way. What happens, when they take away the computers, under the guise they cause global warming? This generation might not know come here from sick-em.

There is a place, on the Big Island, of Hawaii, named Captain Cook. For those that don't know history, Cook sailed around the Pacific and discovered places, like Hawaii and Australia. That seems to be another white supremacy statement, to some, but knowledge, of these places were largely unknown, for all but those there or near. In any case, Cooks boat and maybe lore caused the Hawaiians to believe Cook was a God and was treated as such. Then, he cut himself and bled and they killed him, because Gods don't bleed.

If we put Fauci, in place, of Cook, we have a bleeding God. We can only hope intelligent Western society is as smart as the Hawaiian natives. The bureaucracy is full of these types. People are wired into lie machines, like Facebook, Twitter, Google and the corporate media. There are some important things going on, like suppression of the potential the 2020 election was rigged. The January 6th protest was a right wing insurrection, when no one, besides a woman assassinated by a Federal authority died and likely what did happen was a left wing plan, straight out of the Hitler playbook. Vote ID laws being racist? The entire idea is racist, contending blacks are too stupid to get an ID or contrary to whites, don't need one for other purposes, like getting on an air plane. Or, that there were cheap and effective treatments to CV19.

How will we know these lies prevail or are exposed? CV19? When fools take off their masks. People, in this supposed conservative hothouse, are still wearing them at the gas pump. The election fraud, which produced an absurd 27 million increase, in ballots and votes for 75% or more, of voting aged population, where 55% is the norm, is exposed. I base my idea totally on the absurd turnout and nothing else. And, when people revolt, when the criminals try to pack the courts with criminals. One only look at our AG to realize the type of pawns they want on the bench.

I have thought about relocating to some place, like Patagonia, where people at least know where they are. The current climate, in the USA, is straight out of Orwell. A sizable number of Americans are piling into a boat about to go over the waterfall and signs they are headed there are being replaced with signs that say "This is the Way". Conspiracy theory? Just look at what is happening and know it isn't a theory. We are in the midst or a multi topic WMD campaign.

The medical system is good at trauma care. It sucks at bio-engineering issues. That's why I prefer my own approach.

@Manfmm11. God Bless You. I don't know where any of us can relocate to escape the hell that will soon be unleashed. I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for this community of clear and critical thinkers, yourself include. I appreciate you and all the others who so freely share their experience, life learning and insights. I fear where all of this will end.

From the linked article:
Quote:
Covid-19... has killed black, Hispanic, and Native American people at three times the rate as whites.


This is NOT (or at least not entirely) because of any racism, unless you want to call Mother Nature herself racist. THE DARKER YOUR SKIN IS, THE MORE DIFFICULTY YOUR BODY HAS MANUFACTURING VITAMIN D.

We know that some 90% of Covid patients in ICU's have VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY.

If all elderly and high-risk people (and there ARE many high-risk individuals in darker-skinned populations due to obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure) had started taking enough Vitamin D3 every single day since before this all began, Covid deaths would have been cut by 70-80 percent.

At least, according to a doctor I DO trust, Dr. Ryan Cole:
