Cable must have broken an extended family member of mine. I do not know what is worse, him saying that only Republicans aren’t getting vaccinated or that he may actually believe this. First of all, you cannot be more ignorant or out of touch, secondly this is flat not true.
First of all, what happened to “my body, my choice”? Also, what happened to “this is a Trump vaccine, and we don’t support it”? Well, to answer the first, my body, my choice is only true with abortions, the second…well the dead turned out and Biden won. Now it’s his vaccine!
Let’s just delve into the vaccination stats on a state-by-state basis if you will. Let’s start with California, since the World Headquarters of Reallyright.com is domiciled there. This handy-dandy map I’m linking shows the percentage of folks fully vaccinated.
CA checks in at 47% and change. I’m no Rhoades Scholar, but GOP registration in CA is 23% not 53%. Additionally, let’s delve into our home county, Sacramento. Specifically, I will hone in on North Highlands, specifically 95660 zip code.
The County tool shows 40% as of this past weekend. I pick on North Highlands as it has a very large black population, again, not GOP voters. If you wish to get technical, the southernmost zip codes; the delta, Rio Vista, etc, show north of 70% inoculation, these are GOP areas.
My point here is this has nothing to do with party registration at all; it’s ignorant to think it does. President Trump was more than willing to tout the vaccine, even getting the jab on live TV to prove its safety. Joe Biden and others have made this political.It breaks down multiple ways, as such Democrats cannot process it since liberalism is a brain disease.
First the older folks were/have been cooped up by their kids during the height of the lockdowns the shots bought their freedom, most older folks skew Republican.
Secondly the working folks who travel, they received the shot in large numbers since most places require it for you to fly anymore. While you could produce a negative test, they likely would create more hoops to jump through. Again, these are folks who work, so likely skewing heavily GOP here.
People who work in government buildings, this will be a mixed bag as rules still provide work from home options, this likely brings the average down, as if one works from home, he doesn’t interact with others.
Here are the problem areas.
Folks who are black; there is a heavy distrust in their government here when it comes to vaccinations. I know several who vote Democrat (oh god the horror) who refuse to be vaccinated. This is a very large Democrat voting bloc, don’t believe me, nut its true.
Folks who are Hispanic; same as above, but also add in the immigration issue. This group tends to work extremely hard and can ill afford for a complication to take them out of commission for even a day or two. Again, this group votes heavily Democrat.
This is not a blog to highlight racial tensions, it’s just to show how ignorant some folks are when it comes to vaccinations. Personally, I would peg the figures like this.
Folks over 65: 80% or more are fully vaccinated Folks over 55: 75% or more vaccinated 25-45 demographic: 20% or less. Remember this group “can’t die from Covid” and aren’t likely to even get sick from it. 18-25: Folks at a public college or university will skew the numbers higher, but I do not see high figures here either.
The number of deaths linked to vaccines this year has absolutely skyrocketed. According to the CDC’s own data, in 2021 in the first 3 months, the VAERS website recorded over 1,750 deaths due to vaccines in the US.
Last week they were reporting 6,985 deaths, and this week that number jumped up 2,043 to 9,048.
That number is now at 9,195.
“The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database contains information on unverified reports of adverse events (illnesses, health problems and/or symptoms) following immunization with US-licensed vaccines. Reports are accepted from anyone and can be submitted electronically at www.vaers.hhs.gov.”
There have been 411,931 adverse reactions reported to the vaccine.
Also, last week there were 1,505 COVID-19 deaths in the United States.
That means there were more Covid vaccine deaths in the United States last week than Covid deaths in the United States last week.
Please note that the statistics on the Covid-19 vaccine would be even worse but our government decided to no longer track most instances of “breakthrough cases”. Thus vaccinated people that get Covid are no longer being counted by the government unless they die and then only reluctantly.
California is telling counties to report post-vaccination cases of COVID-19 only in people who are hospitalized or have died, a shift from earlier surveillance that included all so-called breakthrough infections regardless of severity.The move aligns the state with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which stopped collecting nationwide data on mild or asymptomatic COVID-19 cases last month.Some infectious disease experts have said they are disappointed in the shifts. They said it’s important to pay close attention to how well the vaccines are working across the entire population, especially with new variants emerging in other parts of the world where the pandemic is still raging.
Please note that the news story indicates that vaccinated individuals must also wear masks. So, on the one hand health “experts” say that everyone should be vaccinated to be protected from Covid while at the same time these same “experts” are claiming that the vaccine doesn’t work, and people need to wear masks. Then you wonder why people like me think the vaccine is a scam. (From a moral perspective the vaccine is worse than that.)
In economic terms, the only difference between socialism and fascism is who owns the means of production. In classical definitions, both are directed by a central government. In the United States, we have elements of both systems; however, currently there is a wrinkle in the way things work that people in the past never envisioned, that businesses would not only be cooperative with such tyrannies but would be directing their actions via innovation. In essence, businesses are enabling and monetizing tyrannical activities. What we have now is an incestuous cooperation between both. Thus, we are not run by a conspiracy but separate interest groups that are all on board with the same philosophy.
In terms of Covid, many states are moving towards vaccine passports—although they are calling them something else in hopes of avoiding the label of “vaccine passports”. Governments are being encouraged to implement tracking systems which are designed to limit the freedom of movement and commerce by the usual tech suspects such as Microsoft and Oracle.
What is happening now is that there are Two Americas. Two Americas does not mean what it once did when invoked by Democrats like Johnathan Edwards. Edwards and others once argued Two Americas was the economic gulf between “haves and have nots.”
No, in modern terms it is those that are vaccinated and those that are not. Technically, only those who have knelt at the throne of the big state and submitted to Dr. Fauci & co. who can attempt to return to a pre-Covid lifestyle; however, those that are not vaccinated are an inferior, ignorant, and dangerous lot and cannot be allowed to access the opportunities of our nation.
In biblical terms, “and he decrees that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.”
While the modern iteration of the mark of the beast is a vaccine, the state has a visible mark it wishes to place on the unvaccinated. You see the Book of Revelation also speaks of God’s mark upon the elect. God’s mark is invisible to us, but the state’s mark is not. It is the modern equivalent of the Star of David which the Nazis required Jewish citizens to wear in the 1930’s. It is the continued use of wearing a mask.
If you dig into the edicts by local, state, and national government officials, only the vaccinated can enter a place of business without a mask. You cannot attend a government sponsored college in California without proof that you have been vaccinated. You cannot gather together for church, a concert, county fair, attending a movie, or any other activity without a mask unless you attest or are willing to prove that you are vaccinated.
In many jobs, refusing to get a vaccine whether for health, medical, or religious reasons will result in your immediate termination. Please note that it is illegal under HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability of 1996) laws to ask questions about someone’s medical status. Under law, this is supposed to be legally private and protected information. It is supposed to only be released if you specifically authorize it.
For many that have not been vaccinated, discrimination against them is a violation of a number of various state and federal laws. However, when the law stands in the way of what those in power want, it often takes a backseat.
My own employer released a memo this week that is both disturbing and illegal. However, I think many others are being subjected to similar requirements.
Effective immediately, employees who are “fully-vaccinated” against COVID-19 are no longer required to wear masks in the office. To comply with the ETS, the department must maintain documentation that vaccinated employees meet certain requirements. Employees may self-attest that they meet these vaccination requirements by completing the COVID-19 Vaccination Self-Certification form, and emailing it to their manager. Managers should not request, and employees should not reveal any other medical information. Managers must retain this documentation in the employee’s secure medical file, in compliance with the Personnel Management Handbook, Sections 3-9400 through 3-9430.
Employees who are not fully vaccinated, who choose not to disclose their vaccination status, and those who have not completed the COVID-19 Vaccination Self-Certification form, must continue to wear face coverings at all times when they are in the workplace with limited exceptions. Respirators (N95 masks) will soon be available at no charge for unvaccinated employees, upon request. Orders have been received by the warehouse and are being delivered to each office. Detailed information related to updated face covering requirements, including how to ensure proper fit for respirators, is available on the Safety SharePoint page.
Cloth face coverings continue to be available to all employees, upon request. All employees, including vaccinated employees, may continue to request and wear face coverings without fear of retaliation, discrimination, or reprisal.
Please note the above, carefully. My employer is forcing me to disclose some of my private health information or if I hold to the existing law (HIPAA) that its none of their business, then I must continue to wear a mask indefinitely.
Just to show how ignorant these guys are, who needs an N-95 mask? They are ineffective for three reasons, most people are not trained on how to don them properly, they have a limited life of just a few hours, and the cloth mask is to protect others from you, but N-95 is to protect you from others. Lastly the presumption of the above memo is that all unvaccinated people are contagious without any symptoms.
Just to prove that I’m right, please note this gem from the same memo.
Masks are now required only for unvaccinated customers. If an individual without a face covering enters a state building, the department should assume the individual is complying with the requirement.Employees should not inquire about a member of the public’s vaccination status. Customers are no longer required to complete pre-screening health questionnaires prior to their appointments.
Why can’t employees inquire about a customer’s vaccine status? Its rude and also a violation of HIPAA law. In other words, it’s none of your bleepin’ business.
Given the hostility to those employees that are unvaccinated or think its none of the government’s business one other sentence requires comment.
Remember to be respectful in your interactions with all persons. For example, vaccinated employees should not exclude or avoid an unvaccinated employee or customer. Individuals should not ask others questions about why they are not vaccinated, or start discussions about mask wearing/non-wearing.
This is just stupid. The memo’s author has spent the last page and a half setting up a dual track system in our office. One set of rules for the masked and another for the maskless based on vaccine status and then you are supposed to pretend it doesn’t exist and never say anything because we don’t discriminate.This whole memo is all about discrimination but as long as we don’t call it that, somehow its, ok? WTF?
The EDD remains committed to demonstrating equality among employees by recognizing and respecting individual differences, treating all employees fairly, and creating equal opportunity for everyone.
If they really respected individual differences, then why write this memo? This is nothing but a justification to treat people differently, unfairly, and create inequality.
My freedom is not an option. If it were then the memo should operate from the presumption that no one needs a mask, but you may continue to wear one if you like. It is the polar opposite of freedom of conscience or thought. Such rules are tyranny.
Also note that there is no scenario envisioned where mask wearing will not be required between now and the time of my death. I could probably make the argument that vaccination and mask wearing is tantamount to a religion test oath. Think Nebuchadnezzar and the fiery furnace in Daniel chapter 3. Bow the knee to the State or else…
Thus, I either agree to receive multiple doses of an experimental cocktail of chemicals build from the corpses of aborted children or I continue to be treated as an inferior and second-class citizen. How soon until I get to wear my gold Star of David as a Scarlet Letter warning all that pass by that I am unclean.
Conforming to propaganda is easy, standing for what is right has a cost. Sadly, a cost most are unwilling to pay.
Folks many aspects of the Covid 19 search for immortality have proven utterly worthless. I say immortality because for the first ten months of Covid—which just happened to coincide with the Trump Administration—nobody died from anything other than Covid 19 except Saint Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
First the funny but true Babylon Bee strikes at the heart of the matter with this headline:
The article explores the barbaric practices used to produce vaccines for Covid 19. After reading this, I can only conclude that despite the promises of “the Greatest Generation” and the Jewish community that survived that era, the practices of human experimentation and eugenics which were the basis of the Nuremberg Trials are still alive in the West.
Here’s a few paragraphs to give you an idea of the article—which is thoroughly footnotes and sourced.
The two cell strains used by COVID vaccines are named HEK293 and PERC6. The name HEK293 stands for a Human Embryonic Kidney from the 293rd experiment — we can be confident that more babies preceded the final baby used for HEK293.
With fetal tissue research, cell death renders the tissue unfit for purpose: tissues and organs must be harvested “within 5 minutes” and at times this occurs while the baby’s heart is still beating — this was also revealed during a Planned Parenthood court deposition.
Vaccines produced in cell lines contain fragments of the child’s DNA — one study even found “a complete individual genome” of the aborted child. The divided cells the vaccine was grown in would have been the child’s as she grew.
The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, indicated that the B.1.351 variant of the virus was found eight times more in individuals who were vaccinated—or 5.4 percent against 0.7 percent—against those who were not vaccinated. Clalit Health Services, a top Israeli health-care provider, also helped in the study.
“We found a disproportionately higher rate of the South African variant among people vaccinated with a second dose, compared to the unvaccinated group,” said Adi Stern of Tel Aviv University. “This means that the South African variant is able, to some extent, to break through the vaccine’s protection.”
Isn’t it funny that the same folks that promise to keep abortion safe and lethal are the same ones that say a Covid 19 vaccine is safe? Facts are stubborn things, but I doubt you’ve seen this article on your favorite cable news station.
April 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — More than 10,000 people have died shortly after COVID-19 vaccination since December, American and European authorities have revealed. The deaths include more than 7,100 in Europe, according to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and 3,005 reported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
As of Tuesday, EudraVigilance, the EMA’s database of suspected drug reaction reports, noted that 4,036 “fatal outcomes” after vaccination with Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot, as well as 1,922 and 1,234 deaths after administration of vaccines made by Moderna and AstraZeneca, respectively.
EudraVigilance also reported 20 deaths from the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson. The database has disclosed more than 200,000 injuries possibly linked to the four vaccines, with tens of thousands of cases deemed “serious.”
Covid 19 has a fatality rate of 0.15 percent so why do we need that vaccine passport other than to restrict our movement?
STANFORD, California, April 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A new study released by Professor John P. A. Ioannidis of Stanford University, California, has found that the infection fatality rate (IFR) of COVID-19 is significantly lower than previous studies indicated. According to Ioannidis, a medicine and epidemiology professor, the virus is less deadly than once thought, registering at a mere 0.15% fatality rate.
If I hear we’re following the science ever again, I might hurl without advanced notice. Time to quit wearing masks already.
The following excerpts are posted without comment:
A peer-reviewed study contends the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention violated federal law by inflating Coronavirus fatality numbers.
The figures were inflated by at least 1,600%…
That fact, the National File notes, corresponds with the CDC’s “quiet admission that it blended viral and antibody test results for its case numbers and that people can test positive on an antibody test if they have antibodies from a family of viruses that cause the common cold.“
Among the notable findings in the study is the conclusion that the CDC “illegally enacted new rules for data collection and reporting exclusively for COVID-19 that resulted in a 1,600% inflation of current COVID-19 fatality totals,” the watchdog group All Concerned Citizens said in a statement provided to National File.
COVID-19 was to be listed in Part I of death certificates as a definitive cause of death, regardless of confirmatory evidence, rather than in Part II as a contributor to death in the presence of pre-existing conditions.
On its website, the CDC says, just 6% of the people counted as COVID-19 deaths died of COVID-19 alone.
The researchers estimated the COVID-19 recorded fatalities “are inflated nationwide by as much as 1600% above what they would be had the CDC used the 2003 handbooks,” said All Concerned Citizens.
Folks, the merry band of health officials claiming that a vaccine will fix everything Covid related are once again showing their hand… and it’s a very empty bluff that needs calling. If you get the vaccine, it changes nothing.
The following is from the State of California, specifically “Dr. Heidi Bauer, the head of public health for California Correctional Health Care Services.”
Let’s go through this one question at a time. Oh, please keep in mind that the text which I am quoting is the best arguments that your government can offer as to why you should get vaccinated.
After the vaccine, can I stop wearing a mask?
Unfortunately, the answer to that question is no. We as a society are going to need to continue to protect ourselves and to protect other people by masking and distancing for at least the next six months and possibly longer. It will take weeks to months to get enough people vaccinated before we can really let down our guard. Masking and distancing will continue to be really important prevention measures until we know more about the protection that we get from the vaccine.
Getting the vaccine will still require you to socially distance and wear a mask. You will need to do so for at least six months.
Note to readers, depending on the article that you read on vaccines, the Covid vaccine is claimed to be good for a period of three months to as long as a year. These claims are constantly being revised because the truth is that nobody really knows. Some articles are even claiming that you will need a Covid vaccine annually for the rest of your life or until Dr. Fauci changes his mind (yet again).
Oh, if you’ve had Covid, you will still have to get the shot because its assumed that you don’t develop any immunity by being infected. My question is, if surviving Covid—as over 99 percent of people do—does not result in immunity, then how does getting a shot do something your body’s immune system can’t do on its own by successfully fighting it off?
Am I exempt from testing after getting the vaccine?
Unfortunately, no. As I mentioned, people can still become infected even if they’ve been vaccinated so testing continues to be important for identifying people who become infected and may be infectious and pass along that infection to other people. We’re going to continue all of those other strategies. So the vaccine really gives us another tool in the tool kit. Unfortunately at this point. It doesn’t replace any of the tools that are already in use.
So, getting the vaccine doesn’t prevent you from getting Covid and getting Covid doesn’t prevent you from getting the vaccine. This is called circular reasoning; which by the way is a logical fallacy.
Given the above, the next question is at least a logical one. Please understand that the answer is directed at people working in the correctional system.
If I still have to wear a mask and get tested, what’s the point of the vaccine?
That’s a great question. People have many reasons for wanting to be vaccinated for COVID-19. The primary reason is for the benefit of health and the ongoing risk of exposure to COVID-19, particularly in congregate settings and prisons are very much congregate settings. And we know from our experience over the last nine or 10 months that there is very high risk of transmission, and these viruses some of them are becoming even more transmissible. And so the main reason I think that people want to be vaccinated and should be vaccinated is to protect their health. The other really important reason is to protect the health of people around you and family members and people that you come into contact with.
Did you catch the answer? You should get vaccinated to protect yourself and the people that you love even though it doesn’t really do anything but make you feel better. The ultimate reason is in your head (the mental health of vaccine recipient) and an appeal to your sense of citizenship not based on science.
Maybe the Surgeon General should require wording like this on the vaccine: Warning, any immunity that you develop to COVID-19 is purely coincidental and not necessarily the result of this highly experimental chemical cocktail that we are injecting into your body. Just in case this vaccine proves ineffective, keep pretending that you are the most highly infectious individual in your family/ church/ school/job or community by continuing to stay six feet away from other people and wearing a mask. Shouting out, “Unclean” when a stranger passes you by is encouraged but not yet required.”
Oh, and even though millions of folks have been vaccinated, its just a drop in the bucket. Which ties in with this next article. Please note the headline is: COVID-19 cases drop 40% since last week
The number of reported COVID-19 infections has plummeted 40% in the United States in just one week and 30% worldwide in the past three weeks.
And the primary reason is not the distribution of vaccines, contend experts, who point out that only 8% of Americans and 13% people worldwide have received their first dose, DailyMail.com reported.
A New York Times COVID-19 case tracker indicated cases in the U.S. were down 30% from just last week, according to Marketwatch.
Statistics from Johns Hopkins show the nation’s seven-day rolling average is down 40%.
Daily cases have dropped 45% since the latest peak Jan. 11, according to data from the COVID-19 Tracking Project.
Didn’t Michael Crichton tell us that “nature finds a way?”
Meanwhile the plethora of COVID-19 mutations which we told you about last Spring are finally being reported by the mainstream media. Some are finally asking in light of the virus’ ability to mutate, “will the vaccine remain effective?” Please note, this presupposes that the vaccine was effective to begin with. Give the responses by Dr. Heidi Bauer, this claim is very suspect to me.
Folks, its not that we haven’t addressed the topic of the complete capitulation of virtually all the churches in this country in the face of the Covid nonsense at times in the past; however, it seems to be getting worse. Clearly those claiming the name of Christ fear microbes more that God. The shepherds of the faithful have chosen to scatter their flocks to the four winds to be thrashed by the Evil One while they hide their lamps under the bushel basket cringing in fear and looking to government for salvation.
I took this photo on my way to work this morning.
Oh, on a side note, California taxpayers, thanks for the full paycheck this month when I have spent less than five hours in the office all month. This is the “new normal” for government employment in case you missed that. Yet another story you won’t know if you only watch cable news.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Its one thing when our Governor calls churches nonessential but it’s a whole ‘nother level of stupid when the churches agree with the proposition and call themselves “nonessential” as in the photo above.
The truth is that the offering plate at your local house of worship is really empty these days. Many places of worship—especially in high-cost areas such as here in California—will never recover either the money or the members that they had prior to the Covid collapse. In fact, Jake the Snake said that his parish-which had 1.5 million cash in the bank before Covid-just applied to get a government loan to keep the church’s payroll afloat. This bothered both of us. We talked that such bailouts would come with strings and we wondered aloud if churches would soon lose their tax-exempt status under the Harris/Biden administration.
Folks there’s even worse news for churches than all the above. Last Thursday, I was at the men’s gathering at the local Speak Easy and learned that the men of my congregation are perfectly OK with complying with all the Covid restrictions and see no difference between church on YouTube and worship in person. In fact, they want to hand over more money to Facebook and Twitter to advertise the fact that either way to attend church is equally valid. Oh, when I brought up the historic and biblical model of church being in person and there is no such thing as virtual Sacraments, I was told that watching YouTube services by yourself was not good but if you invoked the “whenever two or three are gathered in my name” that such virtual worship with the family was just fine. (I let it slide that the application of this verse to worship is completely out of context with the passage.) Oh, YouTube is also great because why just watch our service on YouTube when you can watch all them other guys too?
In a congregation that once numbered between 800 and a thousand, three services once a week with a one-hundred-person limit is fine with these guys. In my opinion, its congregational suicide.
Oh, Jake and I also agree that our congregations have buried way more folks than they have either baptized or confirmed since Covid started. The trend line is indisputably in the wrong direction.
Lastly, as I’ve pointed out before, there is a cause-and-effect relationship between closing churches and the rise of socialism in our nation. If your pastor neglects to fill the spiritual vacuum in our society with Christianity, then people will fill it with other stuff to sooth their itching ears. Trust me that there’s much more stuff like that on YouTube than anything with spiritual substance to it. If your church has ceased or restricted in person worship, then your church is part of the problem and not offering solutions.
The pandemic started 3/19 in my estimation, going by the original lockdown ordered by the governor. I will be detailing the thoughts and “changing beliefs” of the 90-Day Guy of whom I work with. This story is 100% real and will show how cable and too much TV can manipulate and poison your brain. Take it all in, by the way, in no way am I saying cancel your cable, I’m just pointing out how some folks lose all ability by which to think for themselves.
Here is the irrationality.
3/19/20 I am staying at home, I am in a high risk category
3/30/20 Our government has lied to us, many millions will die of this virus, it’s here and taking over.
4/15/20 he made an appointment with his estate/trust lawyer to update his affairs because “he didn’t want to die in a long line waiting to get into an emergency room. (that’s a wild statement, at the time there were no lines or talk of any lines at any ER in California)
5/01/20 90-Day Guy was contemplating flying to Texas, when asked if he felt safe on an airplane, he responded Covid can’t be spread on a plane, they have good ventilation. (The part about ventilation has been shared by no one ever.)
5/20/20 The lockdowns are working but we must all do our share, again he refuses to come to an office due to concerns about Covid 19.
5/31/20 He was called about a question regarding a client where he admitted he was at an Indian casino. Yup, do as I say, not as I do. By the way this was the first day the casinos were allowed to open.
June: CA was allowed to do a phased re-opening, where he railed against bars, restaurants and gyms being allowed to open, they are dirty, have dirty people and its Covid central. (Again, most of those statements are unfounded, the others are slightly true at best.)
July: Again, refusal to come into the office, yet he golfs on the regular and visits the casinos but has included the Tahoe and Reno areas. Keep in mind Nevada ordered no visitors from out of town. When questioned about his habits, his retort was “a Dr. on Hannity last night said you can’t get it at a golf course or an Indian Casino. (seriously a Dr. on a cable show? Dr. Oz wasn’t available?)
August: We have bent the curve, it’s time to re-open. He wasn’t going to come into the office, but it needed to happen. Keep in mind, this correlates to Trump falling behind in the polls to a worrisome point to Joe Biden.
September: The virus is a hoax, no one is dying, re-open. But not bars, or gyms. Again, Trump is very behind in polling.
October: This is very disturbing, not only is he refusing to come in, he changes the office voicemail to essentially a message saying “he doesn’t want to get Covid, and is working remote and he hopes this all passes soon.” What for? He still rarely came in. As an aside; he calls me one night asking questions about voter history of US citizens, as far as if someone can find out who he voted for. When I told him I had no idea, he said he was going to vote for Biden, so the BLM folks don’t burn his house down. He lives in rural Sacramento County, and he is worried about this? Flat out disturbing.
November: The trips to golf and casinos continue, all the while he is telling folks he is holding out for a vaccine, and we are so close to stopping this thing. He tells me he is clinically depressed due to Biden winning (look at support for Biden earlier) and the virus continuing to spread. When I got him calmed down on the phone, he continued to quote Dr. Fauci (the one man who has been constantly wrong) and spewing gibberish about he is concerned for his family’s safety. I tell him I would put the remote down and socially distance from the TV for a while, he says he doesn’t watch TV.
December: He comes in, grinning ear to ear saying the vaccine is so close and he wants to get it as fast as possible. Hannity had a couple doctors on his show and Tucker Carlson had a few one too, they all say it’s safe. When I asked if he read any peer reviewed research, he said he hadn’t. No real shock. When he was told by his two colleagues neither of us were getting the shot, he accused us of being stupid. (typical of the tolerant left mind you). When I told him several doctors in my family including my own personal doctor advised against the shot due to a variety of things, he shot back saying its safe. Saying a doctor on Tucker said it was.
December cont: suddenly a sea change. He said he never claimed he was going to get the shot, now claiming a doctor on Hannity said it is not safe, and he has many questions about it. He claims VP elect Kamal Harris refused to get the shot. (literally he said this a day after it was given to her.) Then he started rambling about how Biden won’t be that bad of a president and we will be able to overcome all this.
1/04/21 I do not know if I want to take the vaccine, I have been seeing some bad things about it. Literally 2 minutes later he was caught in the break room on the phone with his medical provider trying to cut in line to get the shot himself. This was moments after I mentioned Dr. Fauci bringing up having a “vaccine passport” similar to Israel where if you haven’t been vaccinated you can’t go to entertainment, large gatherings etc. While my statement is slightly far-fetched, it shows how much he believes his own BS.
1/11/21 I am going to stay at home for the next two weeks we must get ICU beds above the threshold, when asked what the threshold is he couldn’t answer saying only in LA they are rationing care. (the latter statement has yet to be proven true.)
Again, this is not to point out how Fox or any anchor or guest on Fox may have misspoke, it’s about watching a human mind be turned into mush. Just look at how all over the place the guy has been. I am no doctor but if this is normal he has some sort of derangement syndrome. Go back and read this all again, it’s pathetic and sickening. Watch how he sifts, resifts, and basically changes his opinion like most should change their drawers…daily.
Have fun watching cable and paying $175 a month to watch just 1 channel at a time. He may not cop to watching Fox or any other channel, but man does he seem to parrot opinions like crazy. Sadly, there is no hope for this man. Like many, this type of person spends their day watching copious amounts of TV, to be followed by searching all over the internet for an answer they like, about a problem they have. As witnessed above, his views changed and shifted all over. The part about anxiety attacks is disturbing, but to be expected, when you seek out a “trusted medium” this occurs when you don’t see what they tell you is happening.
In short, please reconsider how much TV you watch, it’s like poison or drugs. The more you watch the more you are hooked. Sit back from a far and check it out, it’s on a continuous loop, restarting every hour. You will not get answers to your questions, just affirmation of your perceived answers. Also dive into who the guests actually are, what is there past? I can guarantee the guy coming up after the break is not a real practicing doctor, just a research doctor. When you chain yourself to a chair or a couch for an extended period of time, the above will occur to you. Just to give you an idea, the 90-Day Guy watches more TV in a day then I watch in a month. This explains his constant changing of beliefs. Look at just how petty he is, how he changes beliefs, jumps around, then in essence tailors his message to anyone in the room he is in. It’s pathetic and lonely. Lest you think I’m off kilter, re-read his points about elections and Biden. Yikes.
Nope, Southwest Airlines isn’t flying a new daily non-stop between Sac International and Sac Executive airport. Out of literally nowhere, our Dictator in Chief, Gavin Newsom, has decided Greater Sacramento can exit the stay-at-home order. This means that as early as tomorrow evening outdoor and certain indoor activities can resume; likely with limited capacity.
First of all, call me skeptical. A close friend of mine works for the Governor, as in, in his office, and he told me this was not even being discussed as of yesterday (1/11). The latest update of available ICU beds (the new criteria, after general hospitalizations, death, sickness, and other scare tactics failed to work) was 6.9% as of Friday. Now they are saying it’s over 19%??? What happened? A purge? Someone let Dr. Kevorkian loose with his death machine? Did physician assisted suicide come back to haunt us? Did California’s dead voters get purged from the hospital rolls?
You may not remember, but we were expected to come out of the lockdown many weeks if not months from now (its peak flu season) but miraculously the numbers went from 6.5% IUC beds to 19.4% in the space of about 36 hours. (This is supposed to be a rolling 4 week average.)
Does any of this make sense to anyone? I guess it’s kind of like how many licks to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop, the world may never know.
Second; what about Sac County taking Covid patients from other neighboring counties? False. A few nurses I went to college with who work in the area told me that was a lie. They never once took/saw a patient from San Joaquin, Yuba-Sutter or Solano. False! I was actually told that we always had room at the Inn, problem was, it didn’t fit the narrative. We had to scare folks, and what better way than saying there are no beds left to scare the bejesus out of people. Literally a week ago Adventist and Ryde Hospital in Yuba-Sutter was at max capacity and were going to be bussing patients to Sac County…never happened.
Now the entire region can go back to purple tier restrictions; so, in essence outdoor: church, restaurants, bars, movies, wine tasting, gyms, cardrooms and indoor: haircuts, nail salons, and retail.
So, what happened? Well, a couple things, first off Trump is out of office, and who knows, by the publication of this blog post, he may be forcible removed. Newsom is facing a recall that just broached the 1 million signature mark and counting. In addition, a couple big donors just threw in some major financial support. However, I feel the big game changer was tax revenue is way down. Nothing else explains the madness behind this constant opening and closing. The dirty little secret is most counties rely on sales tax to float their budgets and payrolls, the property tax is nice, but it only comes twice a year, and look for that to be way down as I fear many have stopped paying mortgages, and with tech companies moving out of state this could get ugly.
This is what happens when a cruel dictator takes over, state run media silences all dissent, the cable folks paint a grim picture, and the 90-day folks get scared. In the meantime, wear your mask it protects me from you. Enjoy this while you can, just wait for the next “criteria” to be developed. I still predict Armageddon like you’ve never seen at some point soon.
PS The “other” Cuomo (The NY Governor guv) also backtracked publicly on shutdowns today, adding further credence to our belief that this was all about booting the Orange Man from Office. SAD!
BTW I know his name is Andrew Cuomo, but I get him and his meathead idiot brother on CNN mixed up all the time. Two peas same pod, neither could find their way out of a paper bag if they were given directions anyway.
Editor’s Note: Another reason for Gavin’s sudden change of heart is to help Hidin’ Joe Biden start with better economic circumstances than Trump ended with. For your consideration let me remind you that the United States Department of Labor Statistics “reference period is the pay period that includes the 12th day of the month” thus any payroll after today (Jan 12th) is owned by Joe Biden. Today is the last reporting day of the Trump Administration. “The employment and wage data provided on the Quarterly Contribution Report and Multiple Worksite Report impact directly or indirectly a large number of important economic statistics, including the Gross Domestic Product and other measures of the labor market and overall economy. The accuracy of these and other economic indicators relies on the accuracy of the pay figures reported by employers.”
Yep, even with a Democrat majority running the county, they managed to do the right thing at the Supervisor’s December meeting. Most people that I talked to didn’t even know the county was considering fines up to$10,000 on businesses that didn’t follow the federal/state/county rules on Covid—whatever they might have been on that particular day.
But folks, that’s not the half of it, it contained full-blown Soviet Union secret police, guilty by anonymous accusation, type language. Ironically, similar rules in parts of New York are also being considering. Lastly, please remember that this ordinance was the departing gift that Sacramento County’s top health official, Peter Beilenson, was trying to leave to local citizens as his lasting legacy.
The following are quotes from Sue Frost, one of the five county supervisors.
…I was baffled by the notion that we should be threatening them with fines of up to $10,000. Still, that notion took form in a proposal brought forward by our Public Health Department as an urgency ordinance.
The ordinance included the property owner as the potentially responsible party.
Further, it gave the Public Health Department the authority to designate anyone they saw fit as an enforcement officer. That means it would not necessarily be the Sheriff, Code Enforcement, or even a health inspector going into businesses to investigate violations. Under this ordinance, any county employee could be given the authority to enter a business and cite them for a perceived violation.. I say perceived violation because not only are enforcement officers potentially untrained county employees, but they would not be required to even witness a violation under the ordinance. If adopted, the enforcement officer could issue citations based on “investigations” or simply being told by other county staff a violation occurred.
The ordinance did include an appeal process, but only when the fines were for more than $1000. With the fines being as much as $500 for every day a perceived violation occurs, I am sure many would be granted the opportunity for an appeal. However, the appeal process would require a $750 deposit…
Yep, be accused and get fined. Great thinking there Doc Beilenson. Who needs evidence? Oh, and for the privilege to prove your innocence you have to pay $750 in advance. Plus, you are subject to additional “administrative fees” while fighting for your economic life.
To illustrate administrative fees, here’s a brief story. Last week, at the Speak Easy here in Elk Grove, a local business that provides opportunities for the consumption of adult beverages both indoors and out, I was with a guy that told me his son blew-off a $25 bill from DMV. The dumb kid ignored the warning letters and his $25 bill escalated to one thousand dollars. That folks is what administrative fees can mean to normal people in the real world. Take a look at you next speeding ticket and you’ll see the amount of the traffic fine is only about half of the amount of your payment to the county.
Good thing for business owners that Trump won four more years, or you’d really be screwed. Oh, wait, you are screwed.
