I Need the WHY!

?u=http3.bp.blogspot.com-CIl2VSm-mmgTZ0wMvH5UGIAAAAAAAAB20QA9_IiyVhYss1600showme_board3.jpg&f=1&nofb=1By now, the entire world knows the who, as in the central characters in the farrago and cheap Kabuki Theater that has been our lives since 2020.  The list of nefarious and detestable characters leads only to politicization, chaos, and right now, the names of these characters need no further introduction.  I will not name these repugnant rapscallions any longer.

We are fully clear on the where, as in, we know the whereabouts of how this global Kabuki-Style charade originated.  Frankly, unless the consequences include the “Ryan Doctrine” and an entirely new government in China, additional discussion is moot at this point.  If you are unfamiliar with the “Ryan Doctrine;” it is a reference to John Patrick Ryan, the fictional character from Tom Clancy’s books, who claimed that if it is okay to send some 19-year-old kid to war, the political leaders are fair game, as much as that poor-kid ordered into battle.  Long have I supported this belief, having served in the US Army and the US Navy, listening to the political hosts banging the drums of war against Russia.  I am fully on board with the political leaders being in the same boat as the kids whose lives they are throwing away.

The what at this point is pretty simple; COVID-19 is a virus that was experimented into being through “gain of function” research.  As Senator Dr. Rand Paul has discussed ad nauseum ad infinitum with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the gain of function research scientists take a virus found in nature and make that virus more deadly and transmissible in a laboratory for human endangerment.  While the NIH continues to play “find the pea” games with the definition of gain of function, the simple version is stated and sufficient to my purposes.Knowledge Check!

The how is also pretty clear by now; the inability to close human interactions at the beginning of this virus debacle has led to the deaths of many people.  Human interactions are the number one problem in stopping the spread of any airborne, highly transmissible virus.  From the flu to pneumonia, and from SARS to MERS (two highly contagious and lethal upper respiratory viruses), and all the diseases in between, humans interacting is both the cure and the problem.  The problem, these viral diseases are spread through the air, and we share a lot of air between people.  The cure because sharing the virus, in its many variations, is how immunity in populations is increased.

Let me pause here for a moment.  Let’s talk about risk.  The risks you choose to onboard are how you build a life.  My risk tolerance is different from your risk tolerance, and while we might share some levels in our risk tolerances, we will be different, and in being different, we choose what to be exposed to, how, when, where, and why.  Humans have been making and exercising this freedom since the days of Adam and Eve and will continue to make this choice, without, and sometimes with, government boots on necks.

Where you set, your risk tolerances are choices, where you as an individual are exercising your moral agency.  These choices come with natural consequences.  For the government to interject and impose themselves into your risk tolerance decisions is immoral, unethical, and according to the US Constitution, illegal and illicit actions, and not only under the first amendment.  Please see my other articles on the topic for a more in-depth review of the US Constitution.

QuestionAs we have experienced these last two years, the when is pretty apparent, and restating more on when is wildly redundant.  However, since the Internet is forever, let me only stipulate the government has been running amok since 2000.  The gain in government over liberties, rights, and freedoms in the populations with representative government has only sharply increased since 2020.  It remains imperative that government from the city to the Presidential office needs serious reprimanding, shrinking, and curtailing!

Repeating only for emphasis, I need the WHY!  Why were all the pre-pandemic plans, government exercises, and 200-years of research in basic virology and virus management thrown away during this COVID-Kabuki?  Why have so many bureaucrats become rich, famous, and hailed as “the science” when basic science has been ignored, shunted to the side, and criticized?  Science is constantly debated, doubted, discussed, and repeatedly tested in a research laboratory and the real world.  Physics leaders debate gravity; medical researchers are always learning something new, reporting something new, and then testing the new to prove it has worth and value for study and learning.  Every field of science is learning through testing, re-testing, discovery, debate, and discussion of doubts.

Yet, for the last two years, all doubting of published, and heavily politicalized science, has been squashed by the thumb of government, and I need to know WHY!  Drugs helpful in treating the flu were refused for COVID, even though previous studies, done by the big names in the NIH, were politicalized, pushed out, and refused to people suffering; why?  Masks were mandated, even though every manufacturer is forced, by legislation, to admit these masks do no good in stopping viral particulate from entering the mask.  The body of research is growing discussing the efficacy of wearing masks during surgery and reflects that those wearing masks harm the patients’ undergoing procedures from doctors and nurses wearing the mask, increasing the potential for sepsis post-procedure.The Duty of Americans

Why are patients harmed; the mask was ONLY ever intended to help curb droplets of bacteria born from the mouth and nose of the medical personnel from dropping into the wounds and surgical area of the patient until new technology could be derived.  Follow the history of masks from cotton to paper and reusable to disposable, and you the truth is obvious.  Research is being conducted on the germ storm created on the front or outside of the mask that the doctor is then blowing onto the patient’s wounds.  Basic science can logically explain and expound upon this topic.  Unfortunately, as what occurred in 1846 to Doctor Ignaz Semmelweis, those with political power and a modicum of medical training are treating those discussing, debating, and doubting established “science” wickedly and immorally, while pointedly refusing and trying to dispel everyone who disagrees.

By the way, Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis was the doctor who championed hand washing and cleaning instruments between patients with a chlorine solution.  Consider medical treatment today; how many of you want your doctor or nurse not to wash their hands between patients?  Wear gloves?  And have ready access to sterilized medical instruments?  Another hot topic in hospital safety is pharmaceutical-resistant bacteria, viruses, and easily transmissible diseases in hospitals.  Want a topic to scare the hell out of you; read any paper on the problems with controlling sepsis, an easily spread illness for any patient having a medical procedure, where droplets of bacteria drop into the wound, sometimes from the masks of those performing the procedure.

Frankly, I prefer to see medical personnel in face shields rather than masks.  It is easier to hear the medical professional, the face shield is easily cleaned with alcohol one-time use swabs/pads, and I can listen to the doctor/nurse.  Plus, the same droplet control is achieved without the danger of passing droplets of bacteria into an open wound by surgical and medical personnel.  Upon looking at the research on masks endangering patients, how many medical professionals will switch to face shields and away from masks voluntarily?  Well, Dr. Semmelweis’ history shows us the answer is less than zero!  Why does history repeat itself so often; many people refuse to learn history to avoid repeating history.  But the real reason is that people with power refuse to listen to those with ideas and no power.  Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis died of the same disease he fought in maternity wards, sepsis (previously known as childbed fever).

VaccineWant to really be freaked out, scared into mental distress; read what the CDC reports on hand hygiene in hospitals and doctor’s clinics.  Very few medical professionals adhere to hand hygiene protocols to the detriment of the patient!  Yet, since 1846, almost 200-years, hand hygiene has been known as the best course of action to prevent spreading diseases, except the number one reason doctors and nurses don’t wash their hands is their personal beliefs.  I want to know why medical professionals, who are supposed to be embedded in learning and discovery, refuse simple science when it stares them in the face, resist common sense and logic, and inflate their egos when questions are asked.  Ever ask a doctor or nurse when the last time they washed their hands?  I was threatened with being kicked out of an ER for asking this question, wounds untreated, pain issue not resolved, all for asking the ER doctor if he had washed his hands recently.

Why did the WHO, the CDC, and so many other repositories of international science refuse 16-years of dedicated science about mask-wearing in the community and agree with the governments to force mask mandates onto the populations?  What changed in science; nothing!  What powered mask mandates; politics!  Where did masking healthy people as young as two-years-old originate; the warped and twisted minds of someone making a ton of money on mask manufacturing!  How did the masking of healthy people work out; it killed them through suicide, fear of hospitals, and through a fake sense of protection!  Want to know a truth; all of this was known, recognized, and understood through multiple studies, government training exercises, and real-world research as early as 2000.

Exclamation MarkI have to know why!  As a life-long learner, as a student of human interactions, an observer of groups of people and individuals, the why is the driving force in the five questions of study (who, what, when, where, how, and WHY).  I have been told to “Follow the money,” guess what, the money and the origin are similar.  I have been told, “It is political;” well, if that was true, where did the opposing party go?  I have been instructed, pointedly, by Federal Police Officers as they were arresting me because I physically cannot wear a mask.  My questions are ill-timed, inappropriate, and a public nuisance.  The political pandemic is all but concluded; my questions are not ill-timed anymore.  I want answers!  If this was a political exercise with a global bio-weapon, as postulated in March/April 2020.  In that case, I want the opposition party to start asking bureaucrats questions and drill down to answers!  It’s called scrutiny; exercise your elected responsibility!

As instructed in the book authored by Simon Sinek, “Start with Why!”  Why did governments steal power, authority, and liberty to demand mask adherence?  Why did the government push vaccination of a new and unstudied vaccine technology?  Why were effective drugs canceled to fit a political narrative while people were dying?  Why was a virus politicalized in the first place?  Look at the timing, and ask why the virus was released when it was released?  It is abundantly clear that the Wuhan Laboratory is deeply involved, which means the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is deeply engaged, and people died.  Why can’t the world’s people hold the CCP liable for the virus release and resulting harm?  Why can’t Fauci be held responsible for investing taxpayer dollars, against the order of the sitting US President, in the gain of function research?

When asking who got richer, ask why they appeared to force non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPI’s) when these people stood to gain financially from those mandates of government?  Why did congressional representatives in the United States gain in measures above and beyond average market gains, all while people they were expected to represent in government died?Gravy Train 3

Before another question is asked, the media needs to answer why are they the voice box and cheer-leading squad of politicians?  In all representative governments, the media is supposed to be the third party, a neutral source, and a voice of the masses.  Why did the media forsake their job?  Why is the media always the lapdog of the liberal and progressive (regressive) parties?  Why did the press sell its heritage for a bowl of pottage?

Since the media refuses their job, and big technology is tied hand and foot to the press and politicians, like a warped three-legged race, why are the taxpayer dollars being used to enrich big-tech companies?  Why is a publicly-traded entity, big tech companies (LinkedIn, Facebook/Meta, Twitter, etc.), allowed into government offices?  Isn’t this the very epitome of insider trading?  Why is big tech even allowed to influence the government?  I need the why!

Why did the government take lists of the unvaccinated?  The political left has no morals, no compunction, and biggering the government is their god.  The political left is known for using any means necessary to get what they want.  Worse, the political left, and right, have proven untrustworthy, immoral, and unethical.  What happens next should be the second question answered after why!Detective

Finally, why did the religious leaders walk in lockstep with the government?  Sweden’s results are from following sound science, and they are better off than everyone else in the world.  Religious leaders have always claimed the moral high ground, even while “rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s.”  Thus, we must know why the religious leaders did not protect their flocks and show authentic, inspired leadership?  Do you feel cheated by your religious and political leaders?  I have some concerns!

Please, don’t take my word for it.  Look it up.  My references are boldly stated to help you, not prove a point; research can only support a conclusion and proves NOTHING!  I have questions, and my research promotes more questions.  I would see you, dear reader, fully informed and able to ask your own questions.  In an ironic twist of inanity, the CDC reports the following, “glove use is NOT a substitute for cleaning your hands [emphasis inferred and mine].”  The research linked is a peer-reviewed document the CDC provides for doctors to promote more hand hygiene in medical situations.

?u=http3.bp.blogspot.com-CIl2VSm-mmgTZ0wMvH5UGIAAAAAAAAB20QA9_IiyVhYss1600showme_board3.jpg&f=1&nofb=1The science is in; this is a true statement, but changing the hearts and minds of people takes an inordinate amount of time that government interference only worsens!  If you reach different conclusions after conducting your own research, please use the comments to discuss, and include your research.  I am the first person to declare that I know nothing!

Plastic Words – The Tool of Tyrants and Authoritarians

Detective 4Consider with me the actions of Fauci and the liquid definitions of “Gain of Function” research.  Before Fauci started getting hammered by Senator Rand Paul for funding “Gain of Function” research, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) changed the definition to protect Fauci from the crime of “lying to Congress.”  Consider the other lies, language tricks, and tyrannical actions of Fauci throughout COVID from Feb 2020 to the present (Feb 2022).  Fauci regularly claims he is “consistent” in his approach, even when claiming he lies with noble purposes.

Quoting Uwe Poerksen (1995, p. 6), “… words, they sometimes appear to be a skeleton that displays the structure of the world more clearly than a full ideological presentation. … Words are channels that run ahead of history… they should be questioned constantly.”  Consider this for a moment.  Think of the skeleton, the bone structures that form the fundamental structure of a body.  Words akin to the skeleton or frame allow the ability to communicate an idea, creating the substance of that idea for others to consider.

However, words by themselves, like a rib, an ulna, a hip bone, are merely a structure in a greater body.  Words need the sentence structure to be appropriately organized to communicate with another person adequately.  Why should words be questioned constantly?  Because the use of a word is intentional by those speaking, and if the person speaking is attempting to control others through subterfuge, they will intentionally employ language that sounds nice while hiding their agenda.

Angry Wet ChickenCanada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is employing these exact tactics right now in Ottawa, where the #FreedomConvoy is concerned.  Listen carefully to the words and tone used.  Someone in the media should have asked about the prime minister’s intent when calling peaceful protestors racists, fascists, and other derogatory terms.  Merely uttering those words should have been a warning to every Canadian citizen and media representative that the prime minister has left the reservation and needs to be questioned more thoroughly about his intentions, reasons, and legal footing for taking action and uttering the words he has used.

One example, the prime minister claimed he wanted to build trust with the Canadian People.  Still, all evidence (polls, opinions, and observations) declares the prime minister is vainly struggling to hold onto personal power, not build trust.  How is the prime minister using the terms trust, terrorist, and other words to frame his ideas to better the lives of Canadians?  Since the media is not going to call out the prime minister’s authoritarian actions and words.  In that case, those protesting in Ottawa and at key crossings across the Canadian US borders are justified in peacefully assembling and demanding the government listen and act accordingly.

Recently, in the United States, people who consider themselves to be leaders and influencers gathered and discussed the plight of democracy.  While the event was couched in friendly-sounding narratives, the actual intent of this gathering was to steal rights, liberties, and freedoms, further moving the United States of America under the heel of socialism (communism) for personal power.

?u=http3.bp.blogspot.com-CIl2VSm-mmgTZ0wMvH5UGIAAAAAAAAB20QA9_IiyVhYss1600showme_board3.jpg&f=1&nofb=1Since the fall of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), democracy has experienced the same fate as the term sexuality, as discussed by Uwe Poerksen (1995, p. 12).  Democracy has “made its appearance as a fixed element, which the reader cannot comprehend.”  Political Science degree holders, media representatives, and tyrannical influencers have twisted the term democracy, plasticizing the term and then stretching it until confusion reigns, chaos flourishes, and the result is theft of thought.  Unfortunately, democracy is but one of a list of thousands of terms regularly plasticized for political gain and the expansion of tyranny.

During President Trump’s run for the presidency and his tenure in the Oval Office, a mental disease was passed around called “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” plasticizing a word while trying to describe the phenomenon of the term “disease” for political gain.  Yet, what did we witness then, which continues today, people choosing to blame President Trump for everything wrong when personal responsibility and confusion of vernacular are central to the problems experienced.Mediocrity Joke

Governor Jerry Brown, California, 1975-1983, in praising Uwe Poerksen’s book, made the following statement.

In the spirit of George Orwell, Poerksen lays bare the tyranny of the small number of words such as ‘development,’ ‘information,’ and ‘strategic plans,’ that now corrupt official thinking and even invade our very consciousness.  His treatment of ‘plastics words’ is careful and chilling.  Study it and wake up.”

George Orwell’s book “1984” sits beside my copy of Uwe Poerksen’s book, “Plastic Words: The Tyranny of a Modular Language,” for a reason.  These books speak to the problem every citizen faces in representative governments, and modular language is the tool used to steal our governments, rights, liberties, and freedoms.  If we do not, in Gov. Brown’s words, “Wake Up!” [emphasis mine] we will lose our governments, our voices, and our children will have to fight for that which we gave away.

Exclamation MarkConsider the following from Uwe Poerksen (1995, p 88-89), where the author speaks of experts acting as functionaries who shape reality through their words.  Compare this to Biden, Trudeau, or any number of other politicians, media talking heads, and so-called “influencers,” and a cold shiver should creep up your spine.

The Expert

    • Silences anyone and everyone who disagrees with them
    • Reforms the everyday world using concepts and vocabulary of the scientific world inappropriately
    • Employs language with a wide radius of application
    • Displaces words from a common understanding
    • Speech is poor in content
    • Speech reduces diversity to a common denominator
    • Disembodies history from the context
    • Transforms words into a social laboratory for experimentation
    • Dispensing truth and moral right and wrong for progressive, backward, regressive, etc.
    • Consistently appearing on the side of enlightenment
    • Claims expertness and employs other experts to pompously fill the social function they supply as more important than everyone and every other problem and issue
    • Calling upon other experts to raise individual prestige
    • Awakens limitless needs
    • Institutionalizes themselves interjecting their expertise into every problem
    • Creates compound words as flexible instruments to manufacture new reality models
    • Castigates history as useless, impertinent, and useless in the present tense
    • Claims international appeal and anyone denying is considered out-of-date and out-of-touch
    • Their positions are always new
    • Their language lacks individual voice

Knowledge Check!The list above is not directly quoted but summated.  I am in no way an expert, and Uwe Poerksen wields language like a surgeon wields a scalpel, with precision and exactness.  I admit that my biases and understanding could vary wildly from the author in summating the list above.  I have included this list precisely because it forms a framework for judging for yourselves the media, politicians, lawyers, and others who consider themselves an expert.  My intent is to help you become more aware, awake, and knowledgeable of what is happening, empowering you to judge for yourself who is influencing you through words.

What you do with this information is your choice.  If I have awakened you to the danger around you and me through these abusers, tyrants, and authoritarians, I have done my job.  We, the owners of representative governments, must awake to how and where we are being abused to begin the laborious process of ending the abuse and taking back the reigns of the government.  The first step in recovering from an addiction is to admit we have a problem.  Waking up to the reality there is a problem is a job every citizen of a representative government must make for themselves.Theres more

What will you do now?  I refuse to be a victim of abuse!

Jussie Smollett, Ghislaine Maxwell, Omicron – Some Random Thoughts for Consideration!

Non Sequitur - Carpe DiemTwo significant trials started in the last couple of days, both of which the media has been trying very hard to keep quiet while at the same time trying to, in the case of Epstein’s pimp, also make money on.  The sheer audacity of the media, as well as their complicity in the crimes, remains astounding to me.  The whole time Epstein was powerful and wealthy, the media fawned and twisted themselves into contortions fit to shame a pretzel.  Then when his crimes could no longer be covered up, they still tried to protect him while simultaneously trying to report on a story that should have been written decades earlier.

Jussie Smollett is a little person who arranged to be attacked, jilted the attackers from their money, lied, and is now on trial.  Where this wasted excrement is concerned, may he enjoy his consequences to the utmost!  I hate liars; lying about being attacked as a hate crime is the sickest method of trying to garner attention, and I look forward to justice being served, hard and cold!  The evidence in the Smollett case reflects the incompetence and depravity of the person committing crimes!

Someone help me understand.  When cooking, if I try to move a hot pan and get burned for my troubles, the first time is my opportunity to learn.  The second time I get burned is an attention-getter.  The third time I get burned on the same pan, it just proves I am not learning!  Any additional burns reinforce that I am careless, not understanding, and the consequences are mine, no sympathy, nothing but scorn and ridicule.  COVID Omicron, and the media hysteria, the vaccine insanity, and the endless cycles of governments exerting authoritarian and tyrannical controls, continue to represent that pan and burn analogy.Vaccine

COVID-19 is burning out.  Standard viral science is being witnessed globally, and the science of viral longevity is known and has been studied in-depth.  I am not a viral scientist, but even at my uneducated levels, I can understand that viruses have shelf-lives; the virus’s lethality weans with every generation; as the virus survives as it mutates, it weakens.  Yet, the hysterical media continue to push COVID and its mutations as if these viruses are killing millions wantonly, daily, and must be feared, when the exact opposite is true.  Unfortunately, the media have the government doing knee-jerk reactions to every hyperbolic, hysterical fantasy the media can dream up and push.

Tell me, if the vaccines have not worked, and “booster shots” are the only answer, are we not fulfilling the definition of insanity as described by Einstein, “insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.”  Now, consider the following peer-reviewed research from a reputable source, presenting well-documented science.  The scientific community, whose views are as political as a politician, particularly Fauci, are already trying to destroy the research, discredit the researcher, and throw up sufficient smoke to invalidate the study.  However, the truth is evident to those who have followed the vaccine and the guinea pig testing of communities across the globe who were mandated, coerced, and threatened into getting vaccinated; the vaccines are dangerous to the heart!

Lemmings 1Yet, what is the automatic response of government; more lockdowns, more masking mandates, more authoritarian government overreach, and less common sense!  The lack of common sense in the COVID “pandemic” remains a crucial point of contention.  The flip-flopping dead fish government cannot make up their collective minds, except to claim they want to inconvenience their citizens more.  Every citizen should be sardonic and hold their elected officials in contempt for their COVID-SILLINESS.  More to the point, the citizens of representative government need to send the only message to the government that can awake and arouse, “You’re FIRED!”  Yet, I guarantee some politicians and bureaucrats consider themselves safe from the repercussions and citizen anger; I fully support correcting this misconception, pink slip the lot of them!

Will Durant, author, philosopher, and all-around good egg, once lectured about the “Shameless Worship of Heroes.”  The lecture is well worth experiencing to light the mind with the efforts of humans to gather knowledge and advance the reason of all.  However, I like the lecture less for something missing from it, the discussion of the traitorous hero.  Every tin-pot dictator, authoritarian thug, and miserable little person who has risen to power has a position in history.  Every good person acting selflessly and risking all have a place in history.  But, think about the Benedict Arnold’s and Judas Iscariot’s in history; what has happened to them?  These are people who have set themselves up to be hero-worshipped, and when the crowds discovered they were duped, they culled this person from society so thoroughly the only actions remembered are the infamy.

Knowledge Check!Consider Fauci, he of COVID NIH infamy.  The media has worked tirelessly to edit his life story to avoid the multiple instances of medical misfeasance.  Fauci has been hero-worshiped across America, and his thumbprints are on the virus and pandemic to the Nth degree.  His funding is central to how much the world has suffered, and when his 15-minutes of fame expire, the whiplash will be legendary.  As more of his actions and role as central to the creation and lethality increase of COVID are made known, I expect his “hero-worship” will turn to the screams of mobs demanding retribution.  Do you think Fauci is aware of what happens when society stops hero-worshiping blindly?

MRSA and COVID – Pandemic Hype Indeed

Bobblehead DollMRSA is shorthand for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a medicine-resistant staph infection that swept America beginning in 1990 —gaining massive popularity in 2017 when it killed more than 10,000 people and hospitalized more than 300,000 in the United States alone.  Worse, of those hospitalized, many had to have large sections of their anatomy excised, limbs removed, and other surgical procedures done to cut away the infected flesh.

As for COVID’s death toll, your guess is as good as mine.  We all know the scandal of the emphasized numbers to obtain greater Federal Money and media attention.  We have all been exposed to the hype and hysteria from infection rates that do not equate to those with frank symptoms, and neither of those numbers equating to those needing hospitalization.  Worse, we all have been front-seat with the PCR testing scandal where a tampon, motor oil, and a host of other non-human samples all tested positive (falsely) for COVID.

When the intentional housing of infected patients with healthy residents in long-term care facilities is added to this COVID-drama, they shouldn’t be, for these are victims of murder, and the governors need to be held accountable for their deaths; nothing but confusion in statistics reigns.  Unfortunately, all this and more is just the tip of the iceberg regarding the statistics in the highly politicized COIVD-debacle we are living through.The Duty of Americans

One point of significant contention is the difference between an epidemic and a pandemic.  An epidemic is when a disease (bacterial or viral) spreads over a large geographical area, and many different people simultaneously take ill.  A pandemic takes an epidemic one step further and is a political decision, as the illness spreads across national borders infecting larger numbers of people.  MRSA for all the people killed, in all the different countries, and health systems, has only ever achieved epidemic status.  The Spanish Flu (1918) for all the people killed, in all the different countries infected, only achieved epidemic status.  As a point of reference, the Spanish Flu (1918) is a confusion of terms between pandemic and epidemic, and depending upon the source; you can see the media hype of the flu.  MRSA, like the annual Flu, Chicken Pox, Mumps, Measles, and Rubella, are still just as effective at killing people, and we do not shut down the globe for these viral infections.  Yet, nobody in the world’s governments wants to discuss why COVID has been given this treatment.  But, I digress; let’s get back to MRSA.?u=http3.bp.blogspot.com-CIl2VSm-mmgTZ0wMvH5UGIAAAAAAAAB20QA9_IiyVhYss1600showme_board3.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

Please note, while hospitals are on track to meet a 50% reduction in MRSA and bloodstream infection reductions, this does not mean that other places MRSA pops up will meet these same reductions.  MRSA causes outbreaks under specific conditions, typically in crowded areas with inadequate hygiene, skin-to-skin contact, and shared equipment.  Hence, MRSA is prevalent in gyms, dressing rooms, daycare facilities, and any place where human body fluids can sit on a surface shared by other humans.  Hence, before going further, I urge informed caution where MRSA is concerned.  Ask about decontamination of hard surfaces, cleaning habits, and customs, and when in doubt, ask for more information before participating.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) in partnership with Janssen Research and Development, found some interesting results in protecting the body from MRSA by boosting the body’s immune system.  These results are interesting because until COVID came along, medicine generally wanted to stimulate the body’s immune system first, then look at vaccines and drugs.  But, since COVID came along, doctors want to revert to what created MRSA, an overabundance and reliance upon vaccines and medicines instead of boosting the body’s immune system.Vaccine

Let’s take a trip down memory lane to the 1990s.  MRSA is breaking onto the scene and scaring the living daylights out of medical professionals.  This new staph infection is resistant to every drug known to man and kills rapidly once the skin infection gets into the blood.  Sepsis deaths which had been trending down for a decade, were spiking.  People went to the hospital for a routine checkup and died of skin infections horribly a few days later.  Research quickly discovers this is a staph infection, quickly realizes it is drug-resistant, and new practices are needed in cleaning and disinfecting to prevent this from spreading.  But, the first step was to boost the body’s natural immunity.  Vitamin C, D, E, and Fish Oils, were discussed as options to be added to some diets.  Exercise, diet, and weight loss became much more important topics, and the reason why was witnessed on the evening news.  We saw patients lose limbs; a patient lost their nose; a patient went swimming in a pond and died horribly shortly thereafter.Pressure Injuries - Example

I mention MRSA because common sense, research, and boosting the body’s immune system work, as historical data supports, to protect communities from large health problems and viral outbreaks.  Masks, isolation, expensive government mandates and vaccines, do not protect communities from health problems.  Many media pundits have cited the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic as comparative to COVID.  What’s the difference, the most significant difference between 1918s Spanish Flu and 2020 COVID, government interference, and media hyperventilation!

What’s the difference between the ongoing MRSA battle, which claims hundreds of thousands of lives annually in the United States and millions of lives globally, and COVID?  Government intrusion and media hyperventilation.  Back in the 1990s, Dr. Fauci was still relatively unknown in the pantheons of NIH and was still misinforming about AIDS/HIV.  By 2018, Dr. Fauci has reached the pinnacle of his lackluster career, and he needs a pandemic to come along to help his career into the spotlight of historical immortality.  In the 1990s, the president was a Clinton, and the media adored his every breath.  In 2016 the president was detested by the media, and a solution to his popularity needed to be generated.Apathy

MRSA has killed and maimed more people globally than COVID ever will; yet, MRSA, while being more deadly and dangerous, is relatively unknown outside medical centers, and the media hypes about COVID non-stop.  Ever stop to ask yourself why?  Common sense medicine is still the best method for preventing and healing after an MRSA infection.  It would be the same for COVID except for the political environment that shut down inexpensive and effective drugs.  Ever stop to ask yourself why?

The Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP) has a graph of MRSA infection rates by country reporting.  Romania is on top with the worst rates of hospitalized MRSA, Iceland has the best rates of non-infection, and the numbers appear to be current as of 2004.  Yes, that data is 17 years or so old and can be taken with a grain of salt.  However, it does provide an interesting view on MRSA infections.  Not all MRSA infections are reported equally.Plato 3

The main MRSA reported and tracked are those where the infection can be reliably proved to have originated in a hospital—leaving infections from gyms, locker rooms, sports equipment, daycare centers, schools, etc., all open for speculation and wonder.  Not good policy on something this dangerous and easily spread from person to person.  I worked in a call center that was threatened with being shut down if infectious pink eye (a staph infection) was not brought under control.  Pink-eye was spread around that call center so often, and so prevalently, the health department threatened drastic and dire measures if the business did not take action.  Yet, MRSA, another staph infection, isn’t even tracked and reported.  Ever ask yourself why?  Ever wonder why some infections and communicable diseases are reported to death and others never even get mentioned?

Knowledge Check!Please let me repeat myself, and I repeat myself only for emphasis; we live in a world of risk.  The government, any government, cannot control the risk of living.  We, the citizenry, should never expect the government to attempt to control the risks of living, for that is the road of tyranny and oppression.  The government is only a tool; the tool should be used sparingly and only in times of greatest need for the greatest good of all citizens.  When the tool of government is overused, tyranny and oppression are the only results, and the citizens will weep in frustration and anger at the governments’ largesse!  MRSA is a risk we undertake to enjoy a social activity, exercising in a gym.  MRSA is an activity we expose our children to when we send them to school, for the benefits outweigh the potential risks.  The risks of runaway government are being felt right now; what are we willing to do to fix that problem?
