Politics and Medicine

I would suspect that there is a little politicking in most professions. Surely, medicine is no exceptions. I don’t have any first hand knowledge on the matter, but it only stands to reason that egos do collide from time to time.

However, if there was ever a time for politics to take a back seat to medicine, the pandemic was one of them. Yet, looking back over the past 18 or so months, I see that medicine took the back seat. The dems took the attitude that they should use the disaster to get rid of President Trump, when he was one of the few that did most everything right. His interest was always based on the health and lives of everyone.

There was however one mistake he did make. He suggested that Hydroxychloroquine might be used as a cure. The dems really jumped on that. By the time they got done, you’d think it was one of the worst poisons ever invented by man. Had the president not said anything about it, the doctors could have used the drug to treat hundreds of thousands. However, for the sake of politicians, the use of the drug was virtually band for use against the China virus.

Now it would appear that Fauci, who was supposed to be a doctor (who likely took the Hippocratic Oath) has chosen politics over medicine, which likely led to the loss of tens of thousands of lives. It would appear he does not believe in the concept of, “First, do no harm.” If that were his goal, he sure did get that one wrong. It would appear that he helped to finance the whole thing. Moreover, every time he issued instructions, he got it wrong. Then, while everyone panicked, he played the innocent bystander.

Certainly, China played their role in the pandemic. They decided to play politics too, or perhaps, they decided to take advantage of the problem. First they said one thing and then the other, while nothing they said was true. All the while they encouraged their diseased people to travel all over the world, treating them like human biological bombs.

Now, over a year after the whole thing started, some of this info is coming to light. Now, about all Fauci will say is, “I didn’t do it. It wasn’t my fault.”

And, of course, all the dems can say is, “Trump did it!”

Meanwhile, people with the China virus, TB and who knows what all communicable diseases come flowing unchecked across the border and the dems don’t care. They stand there encouraging them, “Come one come all. Y’all are welcome as two peas in a pod.” Biden made that political decision. I wonder how many lives that will cost. No since asking if Biden cares. We already know, for him, politics and power take priority.

Retractions, No Apologies

I am not writing about the story that was retracted. Many far smarter than I have done that. The brunt of my subject are those who wrote the story and those who believed it.

You see, they wrote the story with an anonymous source. That for me is more than enough reason to dismiss it unread. Nonetheless, all those people released the story, knowing that millions would believe them, and the gullible millions do. They believe the story because they want it to be true.

More than that, other news agency quoted the story. Hence, the lie went around the world a couple of times before anyone uncovered it.

So, when the lie is uncovered, when the liars are exposed, the news agency retracted the story. However, the story still exist. Somewhere out there in the minds of millions, it remains. They the writers and the readers are glad of it. The news agencies that originated it say, “Oops. Got it wrong.” However Mayor Giuliani is still the brunt of the story. The writers and the readers want it to be true.

And it would appear, no one is responsible for the error. Those who reprinted the story are guiltless because they cited the original story. They quickly and gladly reprinted what they likely knew was false because they want the world to believe the lie. When the lie is revealed, they don’t need to print a retraction as did those who wrote the falsehood. They are protected because they were only repeating the lie.

Worse, no one prints an apology. Why? Because they are not sorry. They would do it again in a minute.

And for those who believed it, I feel sorry for you if you can be so easily misled.

I have said it a fore, and I say it again. I cannot repeat it enough. Don’t believe any story that uses an anonymous source, that is, unless you want to be gullible. I would suspect, truth be known, half of those sources are made up in the author’s mind anyway. I also suspect I will never be proved wrong.

I Did Not Watch the Biden Show

I saw no purpose in watching the address by Biden. I guess it was a state of the union, but I don’t know. No one that I know of said as much. I guess if it wasn’t the state of the union address, Biden needs to write a paper to Congress. The Constitution does require some kind of report you know.

I thought about calling this post, “Lies on Lies.” Only I think I used a similar title before. However, I think the title is more applicable here. Biden told the lies and then the major media told the lies on the lies.

How is it that I know? I heard excerpts. I really don’t know who the bigger liars were between Biden and the major news media. Some of the stuff the media said, really? Can they really in honesty say how fabulous that speech was? I have seen better by eighth-graders. In fact, when I was going through instructor training, one of of my fellow students was an officer from Peru. Understandably, he had an accent. Yet his presentation was far better and more interesting than Biden’s

Then, all of a sudden, there are dozens of white newscasters that know more about bias against blacks than a man who was actually born black. I don’t know where he was born, but he lives in South Carolina now. That was right in the middle of it all. I think Tim Scott knows far more about being brought up black in the South, much more than Joy Bahar. I don’t get it. Just what school did she go to or training did she undergo that she is going to explain it all to Sen. Scott? How is it that she understands and he doesn’t? How is it that she can say she has experienced the atrocities he did first hand.

The thing is, it is much more than lying. It is plain outright stupidity as well.

Then again, it just might be that someone is putting those words in the mouths of those news broadcasters. It just might be that they have been told, “If you want to keep your job, you say what you are told to say.” It sounds a lot like Pravda. It sounds a lot like organized lying.

Revisit of Anonymous Sources

As the man said, don’t believe anything you hear and only half of what you read. Allow me to add two things to that. Don’t believe anything The Washington Post. They published a story they new was wrong. They said it was a misquote. If you ask me, it was likely not a quote at all. They had to admit they printed a lie and now their reputation has sunk like a lead sinker.

The bad thing is that it was re quoted around the world and many who read it will treat it as truth. They really ought to make sure they get their facts straight before the go to press with a story. Now they have been exposed as a paper that prints lies. Then again, have we found something new and earthshaking. After all, we all knew they published lies and distortions before. It just is that now we can prove it.

Floaters vs Controllers

In one group of books that I have written, I pit “floaters” against “controllers.” The floaters are the good guys who have some fantasy abilities. The controllers are the bad guys and are passionately and ruthlessly seeking power. They let nothing get in the way, including each other.

In truth, there are no floaters. They are from my imagination. I dreamed them up all by myself. I got the idea from all the detective shows where the bodies are discovered floating in some body of water.

On the other hand, in a sense the controllers do exist. If I were asked to point one out, I’d have to say that Cuomo is close to the perfect example of what I had in mind, about ten years ago when I started the series. Unfortunately, I could not use him as as my typecast. At that time, I hardly heard of the man, let alone all the horrible things he has done.

I must say that he does have quite a few competitors for prime example. The democrat party is full of them. Control is far more important to them than the good of The United States of America and its citizens. For that matter, their plans for the world at large are awfully bad too. I guess I should add a number of rinos to the list as well. It is easy to spot them. They are the ones without a spine. They are the ones with their fingers in the air to see which way the wind blows. They want all the glory without paying any of the price for sticking their neck out a little.

Overdoing Royalty

Sorry. I am not impressed with royalty. If I saw the Queen, I’d likely say hi, but that is about it. I mean she did put in her part on the war effort, but then so did a few other men and women. Let’s keep things real, not Royal. One couple gets an interview, makes a few utterances which may or may not be true and the whole world is in a tizzy.

Just a while ago, I sat and watched the “NEWS” for about 15-20 minutes and it was all about the interview and the royal family. FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!! They aren’t even our royal family. The queen isn’t our queen and the so called royal couple are not our royal couple. Last time I checked, we are not permitted to have royal titles in this country, though I must admit we are moving in that direction.

Can’t the media find some real news. Isn’t there something actually happening in this world of over 7 billion people. Isn’t there something of importance happening in this country of over 230 million. I would suspect so, but it is all getting ignored because the royal family may or may not have treated a royal couple wrong.

And, oh yes. Pardon me for not giving them any sympathy. Most of the people in this world would jump at the chance to trade places with them, regardless of how they were treated. As far as I am concerned, that is all that needs to be said on the matter. Maybe, if the queen threatened such a thing, the couple just might learn a very important lesson, one which I wrote on before… Keep the most important things the most important things. Also, we all might learn to keep the trivia, trivia.

Conform or Else!!

We all spent our days in school. At least to some degree, we were expected to conform. Mostly, we had to conform to the rules set by the teachers. However, as we grew older, we noticed that, if we were going to be popular, we needed to conform to the norms set by other students. certainly, right at the top for boys: we had to have the right tennis shoes. Not only did they have to be the right brand, but the right specific model.

For girls, I guess it was style. The right hair-do and the right kind of clothing was a must. Woe be to the girl whose parents could not afford such things. They became outsiders and they were never accepted in the better circles.

Then there were the college days. Learning was just something done on the side. The most important thing was to get in the right cliques and be known by the right people. This in turn help to determine who might hire whom. Here lately, there is another part of conforming. No one dare say or do anything to indicate they are conservative. Worst of all, don’t ever say anything in favor of President Trump. If a modern Yale student lets it be known that he is in favor of President Trump, he will not be permitted in any of the prestige organizations. His grades might start taking a nose dive and it is even possible he might be expelled, but always for other reasons.

Then too, if someone finds out that a former student worked for the president, it is now a high priority to make sure that they must surrender their sheepskin back to the school. Moreover, it is very important that they quickly conform or they will never get a good job ever again. What a horrible thing it would be for someone who worked for the president to get a position where he might influence people to do good things. (and most of my life, educators tried to convince me that once I got an education it is mine. No one can take it away from me. Maybe this is not as true as they claimed.)

Now, it has risen to new heights, or should I say lows. Woe to those who write or say anything to favor the conservatives. There are those in Congress demanding the dismissal of all members who would not immediately accept the presidency of Biden.

After the forefathers wrote The United States Constitution, they almost immediately added The Bill of Rights. The very first amendment insured freedom of the press and of speech. So, the government may not limit speech or the press in almost any way. However, the dems found a very effective way around that.

The New York Post came out with a factual article on Biden’s son and dems turned to the mainstream and social media, and stopped the oldest paper in the land – cold. Guess what? The founding fathers never thought of that one. Who could have predicted the likes of Twitter and Face Book? If they had thought ahead, they just might have made provisions. However, at the time they wrote the first amendment, they had no way of foreseeing computers, let alone things such as Twitter.

Moreover, the technology has outraced the law. Because it was not foreseen, appropriate changes were not made. Now it is too late. Even now, I with my little blog, have started experiencing small difficulties. Even I might be faced with the ultimate order, conform or else!

What is the or else? I don’t know. However, if this conform disease is not stopped, this world will become far worse than Orwell’s “1984,” albeit a few decades late. Eventually, we will all conform or we will be canceled. If need be, that means languishing away in some prison. If need be, it will mean being injected with poison until dead.

You see, the left will protect a killer from the death penalty. However, if someone refuses to conform, they don’t deserve to breathe. A dog’s life is worth more.

By the way, once we are all canceled, the main stream media will be next. The members of congress must conform. The conservatives must conform. Finally, of course, the mainstream media will have to conform. No one can be allowed to think for himself. Other than the leaders, there will be no exceptions. There will no longer be a first amendment. In fact there will no longer be a constitution. It is their ultimate goal. If we don’t stand in their way, they will reach it.

Please Excuse Me if I Seem a Bit Dull

Over and over, the one time after the other, I keep hearing these people on TV say things about it being so horrible that illegal aliens are voting.

To be sure, it is a bad thing for anyone to allow an illegal alien to vote, but does that mean we are supposed to let legal aliens vote. Seems to me, the primary requirement to vote is that a person be a citizen, born or naturalized, in order to vote. It seems to me that, at least in national elections, aliens -legal or not- should not be allowed to vote.

Then, of course, why should I have anything to say on the matter.
