We Knew About Covid For Sure Years Ago

Image
Today is May 12, and that was the date two years ago that -- We knew. Any epidemiologically oriented individual with even an ounce of respect for truth, scientific acumen, data analysis skills, common sense, and deep appreciation for the economic considerations of the situation -- KNEW . All the information was in for all of us to move forward leaving this brief Covid scare behind with the following strategy in mind. Everyone go back to work, go back to school, go back to life -- drop the mask-wearing and immediately cease abiding by any of all the other ludicrous lockdown nonsense. For most people this thing had a 99.997% survival rate, a negligible difference from more common flus. As for the three higher risk groups:  The elderly -- take care of them as best you can with the utmost care, mercy, attention -- including letting them spend time with their family , but realize that like anyone  they will be passing away sometime soon. Thousands of elderly die every year from Covid-like i

Today multibillionaire Elon Musk finalized his deal to make Twitter his own private company, thereby opening it up as the free speech platform it was supposedly meant to be. I am actually all for that, much because Twitter has essentially become the  public utility for the town-square meta-communication platform. Just as you really need only one energy company to pump electricity to everyone in town, it works best to have one such web network to pump in the ideas for everyone to consider. People will say "Twitter can do what it wants with its own private decisions, even if that means censoring what it wants, and  if you don't like it make your own."  Some have, and, well, they're crap. Gab, Parler, Gettr, Truth Social I believe is Trump's recent attempt. Technologically it is easy to have something like this. What sets Twitter apart is two key things: it is indeed an excellent interactive communication network, exceptionally well designed, arranged, and accessible

They Know Everything and You Can't Stop It

Tonight on the cable television I enjoyed a wonderful Looney Tunes cartoon featuring Sylvester the Cat trying to teach his reluctant son to chase, catch, and ::gulp::  eat a bird who was the boy's friend. It was really fun to watch, good belly-laughs throughout. Whatever happened to those marvelous Warner Bros cartoons... ::sigh:: I thought I'd then tune into CBS' FBI  television show. I don't think I'd watched anything by a traditionally major network (ABC, NBC, CBS) for years, seriously. I thought I'd tune in just to see what these things are like nowadays. I watched about 20 minutes of it and it was what I thought. Standard crime story about an attempt to stop terrorists but now involving a whole crew of young, hip, racially and sexually diverse FBI officers dutifully on the job. Here's the difference from the old Mannix  episodes I used to watch when I was a kid. These guys could find out everything they needed to know about anyone with computer systems.

The Truth Rule About Equity and Its Ruthless Ugliness

Image
Equity sounds like such a splendid word. The Bible even speaks of God judging with equity, the exact word. The idea there, however, is that God shows no favoritism, His judgment is perfect, and yes, each individual will be held to account. The brutal truth rule there is, no one will escape that perfectly just judgment . Every one of us is guilty of the worst: lying, cheating, stealing, defrauding, murdering (even if you do so in your heart), and yes, sodomizing (which really just encompasses any sexual activity outside of a committed marriage between an adult man and adult woman). Equity to the System is something entirely different, entirely promoted as a delightfully wholesome enterprise but is actually a wickedly devastating social hellscape. The equity now ravaging everything in its path is that white, Christian, heterosexual males must be stripped of their propriety in some way and have it handed to anyone identified as certifiably disadvantaged because in the past there've be

Yet Another Day That Lives in Infamy - And Irony

Today is March 13, and two years ago, a Friday no less, they shut down our school campus. They essentially established a formal segregation policy dividing students from their teachers because of a firmly institutionalized and largely fabricated dread of an illness. Public schools are still reeling from this as it has been used to further rationalize the unabashed and pronounced instruction related to socialism (it is fine for the disadvantaged to expropriate wealth from the privileged with all due impunity), sodomism (it is fine for people to express their novel sexual proclivities no matter how immoral many consider them), and racialism (it is fine to furiously censure certain people for being inherently racist). I recently posted a home page piece at my webzine opening with a remark about that date and the present moribund condition of a popular discount movie theater I'd frequented before. I thought I'd share some photo shots of the other movie posters that were still ther

Another Sobering Truth Rule Most Gladly Dismiss

Abigail Shrier has sort-of established herself as the go-to voice of reason in the discourse on whether or not in the name of courage and freedom and individuality and just plain wretched foolishness someone should mutilate their body and become some other type of biological being. The most typical one is a man or woman "transitioning" into a person of the opposite sex. From what I have seen and read of hers, I think her take is a bit limited -- it seems she's only interested in making the case against  children  doing it -- you know, adults are autonomous beings and never mind that there are all kinds of nefarious things adults can do too that are regularly and robustly censured by everyone all around. I do believe, however, Shrier is firmly against adult "transitioning" also, so I won't criticize her for something of which I am not certain. She may just want to be focusing on making sure our children are not criminally violated in these ways, so she's

The Tower of Siloam Truth Rule

As I've shared here before I enjoy Jeffrey Tucker's lucid takes on the Covidian Cult lunacy that still reigns across the globe. Thing is he, as so many others, come up woefully short when concluding his brief monographs whether at his fine site, Brownstone,  or on Twitter. For instance recently he wrote "The financial crisis, the lockdown crisis, the mandate crisis, the public health crisis, have all pointed to one end: a genuine medical care crisis."  Erghk. No, the end to which it points is the Jesuit order holding sway over powerful people to deliberately keep things really effed-up crisis. Even so. Then what? The whatever-whatever crisis is shaped to ensure Cain's Legacy is fueled and fired up. It's what it does -- all the time, over and over and over again. Sure "Covid" may end but the Cult will continue to thrive as long as enough people like it and want it. Nothing against Jeffrey Tucker -- again, I like him. I do. He says insightfully truthfu
