K          “A few folks got religion on Wednesday, March 11, a few more on Thursday, March 12, and a whole lot more on Friday the Thirteenth.  By Monday, March 16, religion was gotten by all.”

J          “I remember receiving reminders of meetings of upcoming events throughout the days up until Wednesday and then ‘Cancelled’ and ‘Delayed’ and ‘Rescheduled’ and ‘Postponed’ and ‘Closed’ all day on Thursday.  I said then that we as a society should have gotten two weeks ahead of it.”

K          “Everyone is shuffling about the mist and the miasma in a dazed and dreary dreamland.”

J          “Intoxicated, lobotomized, anesthetized, euthanized, exhausted.”

K          “If the new age vaccines that have never been proven to be efficacious in the intermediate run turn out to ineffective or worse unacceptably unsafe, it is Katy bar the door.”

Letter to the editor of the week (Not published because it implicitly challenges the vaccine monomania):

Got D3 and Zn?

Vitamin D3 and Zinc sustain one’s immune system.  Discuss with your health care provider taking 5000 ius of Vitamin D3 and 50 mg of Zinc regularly along with a balanced diet and vigorous exercise after a night of restful sleep.  Take Zn with a hint of copper (Cu) and an ionophore to get the Zn into your cells!  We should create a contest to craft a catchy slogan like the “slip, slop, slap and wrap” campaign in Australia that encourages kids and adults to protect themselves against the sun and skin cancer.  However, we northerner folks need to address a lack of sun and thus a lack of vitamin D3.  For inspiration, think of the catchy first poem recited by some attentive seven year olds to their occasionally inattentive parents in the car:  “Click It or Ticket”.  Got D ‘n’ Z?

K          “We did not see 20/20 in 2020.”

J          “We will see 2020 on steroids in 2021.”

. . .

J          “Despite some concerns, I am ready to take the plunge. They can plunge the needle into my body.”

K          “You know my concerns.  First they said there were no adequate, approved and available treatments which was not true because no available treatments were adequately tested let alone approved.  Second they said their concoctions diagnosed, prevented and treated the disease which is also unproven and unfounded speculation.  I am taking care of myself and thus taking care of the entire community.  I will obtain natural immunity without taking or taxing any public or private resources.  We are in this alone.  I am obliging and accommodating to the reality.”

. . .

K          “Over the last more than dozen years, the economic system has been illiquid with those in power responding by giving more free money / liquidity to the major connected players.  At this time, the system is close to insolvent which cannot be solved by giving away even more money to the major connected players.”

J          “We started the year with this conversation four years ago or so.  This year may be the year.  The problem is giving away money is all they know how to do.  They will continue to give away even more money and give away what is left of our future.  I still hope it is a happy new year.”

Vaccine Vacillation And Vicissitudes (December 14, 2020)

Posted in Covid / Coronavirus, Health Care, Medicine, Public Health, Vaccine on December 14, 2020 by e-commentary.org

. . .

K          “They make great promises of a vaccine with a ‘success rate’ of 97.312159 % or even, . . . why not, . . . go big and claim 104.312159 % or just make up a number.  Like the Dow, nothing is real today.”

J          “I’ll take it.  Maybe not right now.  It won’t be available to me until April.  We will have more information by then.  If they have enough available vials.  And that turns on whether they can access enough sand to make enough vials.”

. . .

J          “I admit there are some health care workers who are balking at getting the vaccine.  The corporate medical machine instinctively fires them immediately with no severance pay or word of thanks . . . until it realizes there are no ready replacements.  So they are agreeing to keep the disagreement quiet.”

K          “Then the next wave of victims are the most vulnerable who are also more likely nonetheless to suffer unfavorable outcomes.”

J          “Some argue that the most productive should be protected next.”

K          “They can have mine.”

. . .

K          “Why is no one focusing on taking care of the individual?  Why not advise citizens to take Vitamins C and D3 and also Zinc with a ionophore to drive the Zinc into a cell?  And a healthy diet and peaceful sleep?  Maybe shed a few pounds?  A baby aspirin a day to deal with what appears to be a blood condition? That is the solution.”

J          “America is not a preventive medicine kind of place.”

. . .  

K          “Despite efforts to suppress any bad news, word is leaking out to the public.  The MSM and the new age MSM Tech Monsters continue the full-court press to deceive the public but with less success each week.”

J          “I’ll take yours.”

The Vaccine: The Shot Felt Round The World (November 23, 2020)

. . .

K          “There is probably no other government action that would trigger immediate, spontaneous, unorchestrated, sustained and wide-spread resistance from the public than a mandatory Covid-19 vaccine.  Jamming a needle into a body would be the catalyst for a grand collective commotion from the body politic.”

J          “If a vaccine is rushed to market with even a small number of publicized side effects, the public across the political spectrum will resist.  However, the guinea pigs will all be eager volunteers.”

. . .

K          “So many people are concerned about gun confiscation.  I do not believe the government could possibly confiscate even some guns because there are so many guns and gun owners and too few law enforcement authorities who would enforce the order.  That threat is improbable but not impossible.  However, the threat of forced vaccines is very real.”

J          “If the government comes to confiscate guns, I believe and hope the American people will resist at the first warning.  Forced vaccines are beyond the red line.”

. . .

K          “I do remember being either firm or obstinate or pig-headed depending on your perspective and refusing to get into the car to get the vaccine.  He was far busier than I realized and did not have time to engage in gentle Dr. Spock persuasive reasoning.  The pictures in his medical books were graphic enough to get me to get on board.  I asked the nurse to give me a shot in each arm.  And have not missed a fall flu vaccine since.  But may not take any flu shot next year.”

J          “A friend told me that he remembers the pediatrician patriarch coming up the sidewalk with a treated sugar cube in a cup for the three of them.”

. . .

K          “Absent proof beyond a reasonable doubt, I will not get any Covid-19 vaccine.  I firmly believe there are currently available treatments that are much safer and much more effective and much much cheaper.”

J          “I may consider taking the vaccine, but I will be at the back of the line looking and listening attentively and possibly stepping out to move again to the back of the line.”
