THESES ON COVID-19

Covid-19 is an airborne respiratory virus, and is here to stay. Get used to it.

90% of our Covid crisis is political.

Lurking behind our Covid crisis is our obesity crisis.

A "zero-covid" or "stamp out covid" (whatever you want to call it) policy is stupid and counterproductive.

Any federal, state, or local government that is attempting to implement a "zero-covid" policy is interested in public control, not public health.

Covid-19 will become less lethal over time.

Each succeeding Covid-19 variant will be less lethal than the previous one.

We need more research on what constitutes an effective treatment strategy, not only for the unvaccinated, but for the vaccinated who nevertheless come down with Covid.

"Go home and wait until you're sick enough to come to the hospital" is not an effective treatment strategy.

Outdoor masking is silly and stupid.

Forcing little kids to wear masks all day is silly and stupid.

Forcing little kids to wear masks all day should be declared a criminal act.

Most masking is virtue signaling.

Instead of inadequately tested, rushed-to-market vaccines, the government should be passing out free vitamin D, especially during the winter months.

I would rather have the government force me to take a daily dose of vitamin D than an inadequately tested, rushed-to-market vaccine.

Anthony Fauci should be fired.

Anthony Fauci should be investigated for channeling federal dollars to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to fund their gain-of-function research.

Anthony Fauci should be keelhauled.

Forced vaccination is immoral.

Withholding medical care from unvaccinated persons is insanely immoral.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought out the worst in too many Americans.

Friday Who Dis: Belinda Lee never did rise higher than 'B' movies, although it could be argued that she never really got the chance, having been killed in an automobile accident at the age of 25. She had a minor part in the biblical drama Joseph and His Brethren (1961), which starred Geoffrey Horne, who, a few years previous, was considered for the lead role in the 1959 version of Ben Hur, which eventually was given to Charlton Heston.

50 Yup, I'm obese. Maybe I'll get lucky this year and Covid will whack me. I'm past caring any more.

I'm hated for what I believe with a viciousness that is astounding, from idiots who can't even see the problem with "protecting the vaccinated" as a statement.

We have the knowledge of the world at our fingertips, even now, with all the censoring, and people are still blaming the unvaccinated.

FWIW, being fat and with other co-morbilities, I AM vaccinated, but the behaviors, the villification, are uncalled-for. If the shots work, all SHOULD be well, but this villification is making it pretty obvious they DON'T work.

I'm past hating the Left and torn between praying for their deaths, or my own. This last year and a half has been hell, and I see no signs any of it will get better.

God Bless, Morons. I hope things DO get better for us all ...

How Can You Protect Yourself From the Vaccine or Exposure to Those That Were Vaccinated?

Indeed, that is the question of the day. We talked about shedding from the vaccine. Obviously, the vaccine does not classically shed virus particles but it can easily cause people to shed spike proteins, and it is these spike proteins that may cause just as much damage as the virus.

While Seneff's paper didn't delve deeply into solutions, it provides a major clue, which is that your body has the capacity to address many of these problems through a process called autophagy. This is the process of removal of damaged proteins in your body.

One effective strategy that will upregulate autophagy is periodic fasting or time-restricted eating. Most people eat more than 12 hours a day. Gradually lowering that to a six- to eight-hour window will radically improve your metabolic flexibility and decrease insulin resistance.

Another beneficial practice is sauna therapy, which upregulates heat shock proteins. I have discussed this extensively in previous articles. Heat shock proteins work by refolding proteins that are misfolded. They also tag damaged proteins and target them for removal.

Another vital strategy is to eliminate all processed vegetable oils (seed oils), which means eliminating virtually all processed foods as they are loaded with them. Seed oils will radically impair mitochondrial energy production, increase oxidative stress and damage your immune system.

It certainly does cause a lot of public disputes and brawls between the mask-Karens and the militant anti-maskers. Such petty bullshit! Hundreds of smartphone videos of maskers/antimaskers making childish scenes in public.

Seed oils also are likely to contain glyphosate, as it is heavily used on the crops that produce them. Obviously, it is important to avoid glyphosate contamination in all your food, which you can minimize by buying only certified organic foods.

Finally, you want to optimize your innate immune system and one of the best ways to do that is to get enough sun exposure, wearing in your bathing suit, to have your vitamin level reach 60 to 80 ng/ml (100 to 150 nmol/l).

85 An evidence-based, independent, and prejudice-free evaluation will require an international consultation of high-level experts with no conflicts of interest, from various disciplines and countries; the mandate will be to establish the different scenarios, and the associated hypotheses, and then to propose protocols, methods, and required data in order to elucidate the question of SARS-CoV-2's origin. Beyond this issue, it is important to continue debating about the risk-benefit balance of current practices of field and laboratory research, including gain-of-function experiments, as well as the human activities contributing to zoonotic events.
Scientific journals should open their columns to in-depth analyses of all hypotheses. As scientists, we need to evaluate all hypotheses on a rational basis, and to weigh their likelihood based on facts and evidence, devoid of speculation concerning possible political impacts. Contrary to the first letter published in The Lancet by Calisher and colleagues, we do not think that scientists should promote "unity" ("We support the call from the Director-General of WHO to promote scientific evidence and unity over misinformation and conjecture").

Got the Moderna vaccine and now has atrial fibrillation. No known reason for him to have it.

_____________

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines use messenger RNA to deliver the instructions to the cells.

The Johnson and Johnson/Janssen vaccine is the more traditional type of vaccine. It uses an inactivated piece of adenovirus to trigger the immune reaction. The J&J vax also has the benefit of requiring only one shot, whereas both Moderna and Pfizer require two shots.

185 Lox and bagels is served open faced, not with a "top" on it.

Maybe the shown recipe is how they make it in Jew-free Alabama, but where not where Lox and bagels are a science.

After toasting the everything bagel, you butter it. Then apply a light/medium coating of cream cheese. Next, apply capers into the cream cheese so that they don't roll off. Now the thinly sliced cucumbers (necessary) and tomato (optional) are layered. Properly trimmed smoked salmon is folded on top without being too thick. Thin sliced onion is separated so that it stacks with some height topping everything. Fresh ground pepper finishes the preparation.

Just as thick sliced bologna on white bread isn't "deli", lox and bagels done wrong just isn't right.

188 "Go home and wait until you're sick enough to come to the hospital" is not an effective treatment strategy.

*****

Okay, Ape. I'm going to disagree with you on this one, to a certain extent. Many if not most cases of COVID are self-limited. IF...a physician does a clinical assessment using defined criteria to determine severity of illness and patient risk factors, co-morbidities, etc, a patient with a given disease can be placed into various categories, and managed accordingly, e.g:

1. Mild or asymptomatic, no specific therapeutic treatment needed. Apply general measures such as rest, fluids, OTC meds for minor symptoms

2. Symptomatic, but stable, no distress. Use general measures, plus acceptable post-exposure therapeutic agents.

3. Severe- hospitalize, intensive supportive care and advanced therapeutics

"Go home, contact me if you get worse" is a time-honored tool of the medical profession applicable to many diseases and symptoms. The key to successful use of this strategy is having a plan for follow-up and specific guidance of what things warrant a re-evaluation. Those types of treatment algorithms continue to evolve in regard to COVID.

She must have been "feeling the spirit" the second she walked into that place, if not on the drive over. Long before anybody started singing, long before her second cocktail, and probably just moments after she stepped through the door and checked her coat. As well as everybody else in that place. Nope, she "feels the spirit" all day every day, unless she's got to make a public appearance to tell us to mask up and get the jab. That's when she "feels the power".

" 'Covid-19 will become less lethal over time.'
From multiple virology experts, that would usually be true, but vaccinating (with a leaky virus) into a pandemic could produce a more lethal virus. They use the analogy of Marek's in chickens ... which they say is a leaky vaccine that made Marek's more deadly."

Which is why a universal mandate (vaccinate the kids, the young adult/healthy, the prior infected/low risk) is madness. It will only exacerbate the selective evolutionary pressure on the virus to mutate to vaccine-resistant forms.

D is important all on its own from what I have been able to figure out. And almost everyone in the industrialized world is D deficient.

And it is so easy not to be. When the coof hit, I started taking a daily multivitamin and added some additional D to it along with quercetin and Zinc. So far there have been no side effects and I haven't gotten sick - not only from the coof, but from *anything* in the past year and a half. I am used to getting a severe cold or the flu every year to 18 months. If I make it through this winter without getting sick, that would be unusual.

Very strong fecal spread, both from handwashing issues and toilet spray. Many of the early airborne studies were eventually worked out not to virus lingering in the air, but to contact. The tell to this is where it spreads readily and where it does not.

Western governments knew this for certain after the highly unethical cruise ship quarantine experiment. It spread through the ship not because of air circulation but because they intentionally let the staff who delivered the food to the rooms work together in close contact; the experiment was to see how they spread it to the passengers w/ deliveries.

Try Partial differential equations. That is where I met my wall. Mostly because they introduced it to me full bore in a fluid dynamics class. Every thing had to be solved with pdes.

Later I took the class they should have required first. By then I had fallen in love with numerical since pdes solve fairly few useful problems in fluids and heat transfer.

Albert Einstein used to hand calculate numerical analysis (basically the pdes turned into finite difference equations and solved at nodes) for the war office to calculate the heating and cooling of the bores for battleship guns. I understand he hated it. I would ti if you had to do it by hand.

Yeah, none of the vaccines will prevent somebody from getting the virus, but Linus was asking which was the least bad option, if you absolutely have to get one. The J&J at least has the benefit of not using mRNA, and it's one shot as opposed to two (Pfizer and Moderna are both two-shots).

They had just brought the masks back that afternoon...ugh. about 20% of attendees didn't wear one. The deacon wore one, but the altar boys didn't. Choir and non-singing musicians didn't wear one. I had one on at first but my 18 month old pulled it down and drooled all inside in a matter of seconds. I told the kids to take theirs off too. Stupid Fort Worth diocese...we don't wear them at school, gym, sporting events (inside and outside). It makes me so sad that I can't see people's faces at church. That and no one sings the hymns when they have masks on. So sad.

320 There are plenty of anti-fouling paints with copper in them. Are you talking about copper-sheathed bottoms?

Yes. The copper-containing paints slowly release copper as they ablate underway, which still introduces it into the environment, where it kills things, just not as quickly as a solid mass of copper. The Navy, having very large ships which are often in harbors, is supposed to be copper paint free, but isn't completely yet. The new model is to disrupt the barnacle attachment mechanism, which occurs through a complex protein pathway.

It's OK to make the symbolic goal "zero", as long as crazy stupid things are not done in a quixotic effort to achieve that. Applies to car wrecks and covid both.

To my way of thinking, the three big fallacies of the testing strategy to date have been

1. Allowing individuals to self-refer for a test without a corresponding clinical context
2. Using what should be a diagnostic test in conjunction with individual clinical evaluation as a population screening test
3. Allowing epidemiologists to hijack the flawed data from the flawed testing strategy in a flawed and ultimately futile attempt to contain a prevalent respiratory virus.

So their lawyers should just advise them to say okay. Most people have no idea that those common drugs were developed using cells from aborted fetuses, so it shouldn't be a valid reason for denying somebody a religious exemption. Just say "I didn't know, and if I had known I would not have used those drugs either." It's not as if the hospital can send cops to your house (YET) to search through your bathroom medicine cabinet to make sure you don't have any Tylenol or Tums.

Barack Obama did not gain Belgium independence!

Belgium revolted against the Netherlands. It almost caused a Europe wide war as Prussia/Austria lined up with the Netherlands and Britain/France with Belgium.

393 To my way of thinking, the three big fallacies of the testing strategy to date have been

1. Allowing individuals to self-refer for a test without a corresponding clinical context
2. Using what should be a diagnostic test in conjunction with individual clinical evaluation as a population screening test
3. Allowing epidemiologists to hijack the flawed data from the flawed testing strategy in a flawed and ultimately futile attempt to contain a prevalent respiratory virus.

Thanks, well-reasoned as usual.

And yes, eliminate the seeds oils. Change out any seed oil (including peanut oil, grapeseed oil, corn oil, canola [aka rapeseed oil] ...any of those...with coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil. It's an easy switch for better health.

Posted by: Flyover at September 20, 2021 11:00 AM (Rbu5d)

But aren't coconut, avocado and olive oils still seed oils? I mean, they come from the seed part of the plant, just different shaped seeds.

400 The hospital's form includes a list of 30 common medications that used fetal cell lines during research and development. The list includes acetaminophen, albuterol, aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Tums, Lipitor, Senokot, Motrin, Maalox, Ex-Lax, Benadryl, Sudafed, Preparation H, Claritin, Prilosec, and Zoloft.

Which is utter bullshit. Most of those drugs have been around for generations, long before "fetal cell research" was ever a thing.

The only times I've been reproached or scolded or whatever about not wearing a mask or standing "too close"(less than 6 ft),

407 As a fat guy who has not been vaccinated, I'm getting pretty tired of the jokes about fat people who are pissed at others who don't wear a mask. I don't give a flying f*&# what anyone else does, it's their freedom to do with it what they will. What I do know is that my father is currently in the hospital because of reaction he is having to the vaccine. Until the science can prove there is no genetic component to his reaction, then I plan on living my life to my best without a mask and without a vaccine. And I plan to let all of you do what you want to do as well.
