Fog of War Permeates the American Responses to COVID-19

Fog of War Permeates the American Responses to COVID-19

The COVID 19 response landscape has exposed serious missteps on the part of the public health illuminati.  Even today, the American standard of care for COVID-19 patients is abysmal.  America’s National Institute of Health (NIH) official Treatment Guidance continues to recommend no early treatment whatsoever.  The Guidance goes so far as to discourage the use of steroids for mild cases.  This is truly reprehensible given the American medical community’s reliance on steroids for a whole host of different ailments.  Goodness, even my dog is on steroids.   So…

A Lesson in Freedom… From a Lion

A Lesson in Freedom… From a Lion

I received an email the other day with a lovely story about Christian the Lion.  The poignant clip touches our deepest, most primal emotions, illustrating the ties between man and animal.  However, the full story is much more profound, parable-like in quality, and offers lessons for today’s citizenry. The story is about two young Englishmen, John and Ace, who purchase a lion cub from a prominent London department store. While they recognized early on that their relationship with the lion might be…

The Case for Closing Public Schools… Indefinitely

The Case for Closing Public Schools… Indefinitely

The past year, parents and students across the county, mostly in Democrat run municipalities, have been experiencing excessive levels of stress due to unending school closures. Red states like Florida, Texas, and South Dakota have been open for months. Meanwhile, the teacher’s unions have a strangle hold on the public schools in Democrat states, refusing to open for a litany of absurd reasons.  Part of me sympathizes with the conservative parents who are struggling to cope with working from home…

Bureaucracy Kills – UK v EU Vaccine War

Bureaucracy Kills – UK v EU Vaccine War

After a year of lockdowns, vaccinations are finally making their way into the arms of eager citizens around the globe. The speed of that progress differs greatly between nations however. The UK is kicking butt and taking names with the third fastest vaccination rate in the world, behind only Israel and the UAE. Within Europe, the UK takes the top spot… and it’s not even close.  A little over 8.3 million people have had their first dose in the UK and just…

Vaccine Roll Out… A Numbers Game

Vaccine Roll Out… A Numbers Game

Vaccinations in the U.S. began Dec. 14 with health-care workers, and so far 22.4 million shots have been given, according to a state-by-state tally by Bloomberg and data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the last week, an average of 1.16 million doses per day were administered.   It was unrealistic to assume that a nationwide, nay worldwide, roll out of a vaccine would be obstacle or hiccup free.  But here we are – approximately 6 weeks into the Coronavirus vaccine and according to the Bloomberg we have surpassed Biden’s…

Where Are the Therapies?

Where Are the Therapies?

*While news broke yesterday about a potentially imminent vaccine developed by Pfizer, as no date is set for the release of the vaccine, we thought it was still relevant to publish the following regarding Covid-19 therapeutics. * On Friday, October 1, the country learned that President Trump had contracted Covid-19.  Yet in just 8 days, he was able to resume his public appearances and his aggressive campaign schedule.  The obvious question:  how did he do it?  How was he able to conquer the virus…

It’s All About the Narrative

It’s All About the Narrative

To claim that today’s news stories are more narrative than reporting is hardly a revelation.  Saunter through news sources – television, internet, your favorite podcast, or from your Facebook friends, and you will see different narratives crafted around the same facts.  The narratives quote facts, real facts, but reach contradictory conclusions.  As you read through today’s news stories, it pays to be attentive to the underlying narrative the reporter or the network is telling you.   For example, it can be alleged that the…

HCQ: Path to Freedom or Dilemma for the Vulnerable

HCQ: Path to Freedom or Dilemma for the Vulnerable

*Please note, this is written by a retiree on Medicare.* The dilemma for the Medicare crowd in the face of Covid-19 is a way to confidently return to normal recognizing that “Slowing the Spread” and “Flattening the Curve” did not mean the virus would miraculously disappear.  It meant protecting the health care from an overwhelming surge of sick patients.  That means the virus must run its course and positive cases will continue albeit slowly. What are those of us in our later…

No, Mothers Should Not Be Compensated For Housework

No, Mothers Should Not Be Compensated For Housework

Last weekend, the New York Times published an op-ed piece titled “Forget Pancakes. Pay Mothers.” The author argued that the domestic duties that mother’s perform like changing diapers, cooking, and cleaning should be compensated. This sentiment is nothing new. In fact, it is nothing more than a recycled agenda from the Equal Rights Amendment era of the 1970s.  Nearly 50 years after this debate started and the feminists still haven’t figured out that mothers are already compensated for their household…
