It seems I’m having to change my mind more often these days… I recently hit play on Dr. Fauci’s COVID-19 segment on PBS where he says the New York Response was the correct one. Looking at the current stats that appears to be true! After reviewing my previous critique of Governor Cuomo and the state’s reaction to the global pandemic I feel I have to retract my strongly voiced criticism. It looks like the Governor’s approach of Early, Often and Up Front has left him the darling of the Democrats.
Gov. Cuomo’s strategy was two-fold. First, He demanded the filthy, disease-riddled, urine-soaked New York Subway system remain open specifically because those who would be in First and Direct contact with those elderly individuals possessing pre-existing conditions could get to work unobstructed. Second, by Forcing New York Nursing Homes to admit COVID-19 Positive elderly into their facilities. By doing both, the Governor was able to literally decimate the most vulnerable and likely to die from the virus… This plan resulted in well over 30,000 lives lost almost immediately. Early, Often and Up Front. Once the most likely to contract and pass away from the disease had done so, the Subway was sanitized (for the first time in 100 years) and the order forcing nursing homes to admit infected elderly into their midst was rescinded. But there is the genius. The highest risk population most likely to contract and subsequently pass away from the disease had been dramatically reduced leaving far fewer remaining to perish from it today. Now the numbers look promising… so much so that the Governor is receiving praise from Dr. Fauci. (Is Fauci a German name? I’ll have to look into that.) If one must judge from current lead stories emanating out of New York and landing on headlines across the country you can only end up where I am now. New York got it Right on the Corona Virus thanks to the leadership of Andrew Cuomo.
The Wu-Tang Flu has parted the clouds which have long darkened our skies and shined the bright light of Truth upon us! Hallelujah! Here’s what we know:
Don’t use Public Transportation. Don’t use Public Education. Don’t use Public Restrooms. Don’t use Public Streets. Don’t use Public Facilities of Any Kind… and Certainly Don’t Count on them to work as Promised.
Why? Because you’ll DIE.
And, if in the off chance you don’t die, you’ll kill Granny just by visiting her… you selfish, murdering, toilet paper hoarding A-Hole!
The lesson here is, buy your own car, own your own home, cook your own food, don’t pick your nose, poop in your own bathroom, home-school your kids or use private schools with small class sizes, take ownership of the streets and roads around you as well as your communities like… we… used… to. Live at your own risk.
Of course, the “Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste” crowd is screaming for MORE GOVERNMENT! But I ask you, how is that Universal Health Care working for the Italians, Germans, French, Indians, Iranians, Chinese, etc. etc? Do the Mass Grave/Burn Pits come ‘free of charge’ because of their ‘amazing’ health schemes? Yes, yes they do. Cool! We definitely need some of that…
In the end here’s what the takeaway is, we might as well have been attacked. Look at this like WWIII. This virus appears to have been crafted intentionally if not released intentionally.
We as a nation are more vulnerable now than ever in history exactly because we have abdicated our personal responsibility to nameless, faceless, bureaucrats who happily accept that power over us. We have chosen via the people we have elected to live at everyone else’s risk. You all know the old adage, “When Everyone Owns It, Nobody Owns It.” Look around… it’s true. This very horrible, bad, terrible idea is being demonstrated for all the world in real-time.
Now there is no time.
So the Socialism that has permeated modern America should now be dead for all time.
Or, will we collectively beg for more of what got us here?
And, hoard Toilet Paper…
(As an aside, you might also note that living in a Big City is a bad idea. Pushing your Grandparents into a Nursing Home is a bad idea. Using Public Schools as Baby Sitters is a bad idea. Not Saving a Dime is a bad idea. Taking your sh*tty politics to places that are doing just fine and changing them into the sh*thole you just had to escape from is just Bad. Hoarding Sh*t you can’t eat or has a short Shelf Life is also Ba… no, that’s just stupid. I hope you enjoy every spoonful of your piping hot bowl of toilet paper. As I tap this out it becomes clear how we got here.)
Scientists distill vodka from Chernobyl’s radioactive exclusion zone and say it seems safe to drink
By Christopher Brito (August 9, 2019 / 4:50 PM / CBS News)
Scientists have distilled vodka from ingredients found in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, creating the first consumer product out of the area since the nuclear disaster over 30 years ago. Called Atomik, the artisan vodka is actually an experiment from researchers looking into how much radioactivity would transfer over to crops grown in the zone, according to the Chernobyl Spirit Company, the team that created it.
Chernobyl Spirit Company made the liquor out of rye grain they planted in the exclusion zone and water from an aquifer in Chernobyl. After distilling it and conducting tests, James Smith, a University of Portsmouth environmental scientist and part of the group, told CBS News partner BBC they concluded that their product is “no more radioactive than any other vodka.”
Atomik vodka was created as an experiment for scientists to analyze how much radioactivity transfers from crops grown in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Chernobyl Spirit Company
“Any chemist will tell you, when you distill something, impurities stay in the waste product,” Smith said. They sent the Chernobyl vodka to Southhampton University in the U.K. to undergo testing for possible radioactivity.
“They couldn’t find anything — everything was below their limit of detection,” he said.
The only problem with the vodka is that so far there’s only one bottle of it, according to the BBC. The team said in a blog post they plan on making more bottles of Atomik, with the hope of making a profit to help local communities that surround the abandoned zone.
The recent HBO series “Chernobyl” renewed interest in the disaster and the site where it transpired. Fears of radiation have kept many away from the exclusion zone, which was evacuated in the aftermath of the 1986 nuclear accident, but thousands of tourists now travel to the site every year. So many, in fact, that Ukraine’s president announced plans to make the site and surrounding areas more tourist friendly. The plans include new waterways and checkpoints in the area, enhanced cellphone reception and new walking trails. Filming restrictions will also be lifted.
Back in April 1986, when the region was part of the Soviet Union, a reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant exploded, resulting in at least 32 deaths in the immediate aftermath. After initially downplaying the risk, the communist regime soon forced thousands of people to evacuate, turning the nearby city of Pripyat into a ghost town. Hundreds of square miles surrounding the reactor remain off limits.

You want to make decisions regarding your children like what they eat, how they dress, how they should be punished when they misbehave without asking permission from their School, Teachers, Child Services, Neighbors, Law Enforcement, City Councilors, local media talking heads?
Don’t Worry, we’ll make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.
You are over 65 and acquire an illness needing an available medical cure?
Socialism is the slavery of ‘you’ to the group… to the ‘we’. I’ve long offered that those who believe the Sheep must be Led never seem to count themselves among the Sheep. They hold that they will always be the ‘we’ deciding what to do with ‘you’.
Socialism is a Poison, it is the ideology of Opression, Death and Destruction. Why? Because Human life must become cheap… the one must be Forced to sacrifice for the many. Eventually that someone no longer wants to be a slave, that someone no longer wants to ask permission, that someone arrives at the idea that they should be able to make decisions for themselves, then that someone determines it is their right to be Free and seeks Liberty, the group be damned. But…
Don’t Worry… we’ll make you comfortable while we decide what to do with you.
Apparently, celebrities are getting facials made from cloned baby foreskin cells
Article Published By Filipa Ioannou at SFGATE
“Cate Blanchett recently told Vogue Australia she got a treatment called a “penis facial.”
People have put a lot of wild things on and around their faces in the name of smooth, blemish-free, youthful-looking skin: Leeches! Horse oil! Bee venom! Snail mucus! Bird poop! Animal placenta! Literal neurotoxins!
But it seems Cate Blanchett decided to one-up us all with something she referred to as a “penis facial” (not the X-rated kind). (Editor’s note: This is assumptive.)
“Sandy (Bullock) and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the ‘penis facial,'” she said in an interview with Vogue Australia when asked the most outlandish beauty treatment she’d ever received.
The lines in question were quietly removed from the article, but it was too late. A cached version lived on, and the internet’s fascination was piqued. Cryotherapy Facials: Dermatologist to the stars uses freezing temps to achieve a red-carpet glow!
Blanchett herself wasn’t quite clear on why it was nicknamed the penis facial — maybe the smell?
“I don’t know what it is, or whether it’s just ’cause it smells a bit like sperm — there’s some enzyme in it, so Sandy refers to it as the ‘penis facial,'” she told Vogue Australia.
Would that it were so simple. Alas, the story of the penis facial does not end with the smell. (Editor’s Note: Dear God…)
Louise, who also reportedly counts Emma Stone, Katy Perry, Alexander Wang and Karly Kloss among her clients (no word on whether any of them have gotten the penis facial, though) was happy to clarify things in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. The facial is derived from cells that are clones of baby foreskin cells.
“The foreskin is collected during circumcision and the stem cells are then harvested and extracted through a centrifuge,” she told THR. “I am always very mindful to explain radical serums and potions that I carry in my back bar, so I always explain that EGF is derived from newborn baby foreskin, but cells were taken and from that, new cells are cloned from a laboratory.”
It costs $650.

“Allow” me to bypass the obvious question as to who do these people think they are to “Allow” me to do anything… and get to the bigger issue at hand.
The Destruction of the Health Insurance Companies is analogous to Cortez burning his ships when he landed on the New World.
(Realize, the Government may tolerate a few Health Insurance companies to exist so long as they can be completely controlled via regulations… the Fascist flavor of Socialism. It is what We have “Allowed” these people to do in almost every Industry. This brand of Fascism is why the EPA and OSHA exist. Without these agencies Insurance Companies, not to mention Self Interest, would be the mechanism for spreading Best Practices. Get the connection? Do you suddenly see why “Big Insurance” is the enemy of the Left? They represent competition to Big Government. Therefore the Left believes They must be removed, or at a minimum diminished to the point of uselessness. And we’re witnessing it happen as I tap this out.)
There is no, nor will there be, any “fix” to the complete and total destruction of the Health Insurance Industry we are watching before our eyes. The only solution to what is an ill-advised attempt of Government to wrest control over 1/6th of the Economy while once again removing all Free-Market Competition, Voluntary Exchange and your Right to Choose is a complete Repeal of this Disastrous Law.
Anything else is simply an effort to preserve the Big Government, aka Socialist, gains achieved during the first two years of Democrat Control over The United States.
Anything else is just buying time while you “Get Used” to Government telling you what you must do when it comes to purchasing Health Insurance. Then what you eat, and drive, and activities you pass time doing etc. Because it all has to do with your Health. The only “fix” Liberals want when it comes to Health Care is enough time for you to get your mind right and accept that Government is the Answer.
But they Need you to scream for them to “Fix” it. Which is why they all seem to be standing around watching the Health System Implode. An Implosion they caused. All they’re waiting for is for you to blame the Insurance Companies and beg Government to step in… with Single Payer or what is otherwise known as Government Run Health Care.
It has been the goal from the beginning. It is still the goal.
And, Once the deed is done there can be no turning back.
Social Security was supposed to be a temporary Insurance Safety Net. Temporary… But given enough time you folks began counting on it and decided it should be permanent. So permanent in fact that the politicians took your cue and spent all the money collected for it on other things because they knew you would never let that stream of income to Government go away. But they didn’t spend it on important things, things we could have done without. They wasted it. They allowed their friends to have it. They squandered it. Because who needs discipline when the money just keeps rolling in? And You gave them permission. You are Still giving them permission.
This is no different.
Don’t let this happen again.
Demand Complete Repeal!
When Democrats stand up and say “Republicans have never liked this law and just want to get rid of it!”, you should stand up and say “You’re Right!” “We Warned You!” “In Fact, We Warned You with Plenty of Time not to let this Happen in the First Place!” “Are You Listening?”
All this was bad from the beginning and it needs to be done away with, not preserved with some “fix” created to placate you until you “see the light” and concede your Freedoms to those in Washington.
It is no mystery that I’m not a fan of about 80% of the Republican Party. But it is a Party that must move to Repeal this hideous legislation. It is a Party that needs to step around the likes of John McCain, Chris Christy and Lindsey Graham to save this country from the mistakes of Democratic Socialists world over. If there has ever been a rallying point, or issue, of our time it is this. We were not there to fight against what we now know to be huge wastes of money and drags on productivity of the past. But we are here now.
The push to Socialize Medicine must be stopped.
And in the future, Anyone who even suggests such a Scheme should be disqualified from serious consideration when it comes to holding power in this Country.
I’m sitting here as I tap this out watching Paul Ryan imply there’s a debate whether Obamacare needs to be repealed.
Paul, There is no debate.
None of us need to be told that Obamacare needs to be repealed.
What we’re standing in opposition to is leaving any aspect of it in place. The entire Socialist take over must be destroyed. It needs to be completely removed from every part of the American body. There should be no part, even the smallest cell, of this cancer left to metastasize in the future.
We DID NOT send all of you up there to “Repeal and Replace” as you keep trying to tell us we did. That language is purely political and grew from you political weasels… not us. You can keep repeating the lie, but it does not make it true.
Get rid of this poison.
Once the entire pile of excrement is removed, then and only then can we talk about the only two actual problems which existed prior to Obamacare being forced down our throats.
Once it has been repealed… and the Left screams about 500 BILLION UNINSURED WOMEN AND CHILDREN AND MARTIANS AND ROBOTS AND PETS AND TREES AND… AND… AND…
We can then address Pre-existing conditions and most importantly Portability.
I swear to you as I sit here in my underwear that I will seek out the Republicans standing in the way of a full-out repeal and do everything in my power, from money to direct support, to defeat them and remove them from any representation they are using to prevent The United States of America from returning to it’s Constitutionally Limited Greatness and the right of every American Citizen to be secure in representation of their labor and their right to choose.
SCREW REPLACING IT. WE DON”T NEED YOUR HELP. RETURN OUR MEDICAL CARE BACK TO US BY GETTING OUT OF THE WAY.
REGARDLESS OF THE COST, THE UNITED STATES MUST GET RID OF THIS SOCIALIST CROWN JEWEL…
(Originally posted 091914. But now that we’ve graduated from Enterovirus to Measles… decided to revisit.)
There are Diseases in The World which Progressives believe have been left unaddressed by the Major World Powers.
The thinking goes that we, Lazy-Stupid-Spoiled Western Masses, simply don’t care if it doesn’t effect us. You can find evidence of this mindset within the fight against AIDS as well as other life threatening diseases…. Like Ebola.
And certain others such as the Enterovirus.
So how might a World Power (The United States) be motivated to address those sicknesses that have been Intentionally Ignored?
Yes, that’s what I said…
Bring them here so We can experience them… Some of us Die from them… And All of us Fear them.
The contingency that subscribes to the idea we are ‘all citizens of the world’ is not beyond bringing sickness to our shores if it means we will devote our resources to fighting the illness’ we previously ignored. In their mind, focusing on our own Problems First, while spending Energy on the Worlds Problems Second, is what makes America Terrible. And they have anointed themselves ‘Enlightened’ Apostles of all that is Good and Just. The Ends Justify the Means…
This leaves only one question.
How do you bring them here?
Allow hundreds of thousands of people into the country without medical screening… all at once. (All at once of course can mean over a period of a year or so when it comes to the grand scheme of things.) Then disperse them at taxpayer expense throughout the country.
‘But this would never happen!’ you say… I know you… and I know you’re saying it.
Well it’s happening, right now, as I tap this out.
The only real question left to the Left is ‘How do you make these new illnesses spread fast enough to completely refocus the National Energy onto defeating them?’
Make the people you let in be Children… unaccompanied and unsupervised… then send them all over the country and Force our public school system to absorb Them.
‘But Who, In Their Right Mind, would do this?!’ you ask… I also know you’re asking that…
Good Question. Who Would do this?
Because whoever it is, is doing it right now.
And those who enable the doing will tell you it’s only ‘fair’ that we devote our abilities to helping those We chose not to help in the past. Whether we like the outcome of doing so or not.
It’s for the Greater Good of All the Citizens of the World.

VA secretary: Disney doesn’t measure wait times, so why should VA?
Washington Examiner, By Sarah Westwood (@sarahcwestwood) • 5/23/16 10:59 AM
Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald on Monday compared the length of time veterans wait to receive health care at the VA to the length of time people wait for rides at Disneyland, and said his agency shouldn’t use wait times as a measure of success because Disney doesn’t either.
“When you got to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what’s important? What’s important is, what’s your satisfaction with the experience?” McDonald said Monday during a Christian Science Monitor breakfast with reporters. “And what I would like to move to, eventually, is that kind of measure.”
McDonald’s comments angered House Speaker Paul Ryan, who tweeted out Monday afternoon, “This is not make-believe, Mr. Secretary. Veterans have died waiting in those lines.”
This is not make-believe, Mr. Secretary. Veterans have died waiting in those lines. https://t.co/OxfT3AYzTi— Paul Ryan (@SpeakerRyan) May 23, 2016
McDonald faced questions at the breakfast about the VA’s lack of transparency surrounding how long veterans must wait to receive care at VA facilities around the country. The agency has weathered controversy over the past several years due to its struggle to provide timely care for many patients.
The VA secretary said most veterans report being satisfied with their care and argued that the average wait time for a veteran seeking VA treatment is only a matter of days.
He said he did not believe a measure called the “create date,” which gauges a veteran’s wait time by counting from the day the veteran first requests care, was a “valid measure” of a veteran’s VA experience.
The Government Accountability Office released a report in April exploring the metric used to count a veterans’ wait time, called the “preferred date.” The measure does not count from the time a veteran first calls to make an appointment.
The Leftists Know that the VA is Obama Care once fully implemented. They Know the Fraud, Waste and Abuse long documented at the VA will be present in Obama Care. But most importantly They Know that once Obama Care is fully implemented, and funded through confiscatory tax penalties and punishments (which is really what this is all about), there is a deadly surprise waiting for you.
The Objective of the Left is to rid the Population of the ability to resist their Horrific Collectivist Ideas.
They are fully aware that The United States was founded on Individual Rights and paramount to those Rights is Free Speech and the Ability to Resist Tyrannical Government should it arise.
Socialists recognize that the Public has never, historically, enjoyed their institutionalized nepotism and Elitist wielding of Power over the ‘Stupid Masses’. And because of that, removing their primary source of self-defense remains a priority.
But they need you to BEG Them to enforce the removal of this defense… in the name of safety.
The push to Make EVERYONE Crazy has been going on for decades. From Mommies Little Helper to today’s myriad of
doses to make the World a better place.
And what if Doctors don’t report you?
The Lawyers are ready to place Liability Suits as fast as they can get their paralegals tapping away at their keyboards.
In the End, This is just one of the symptoms of Obamacare we all warned you about. It’s about control. It’s about you being kept. It’s about removing your ability to resist the Poison that is Leftist Progressive Socialism.
They have the rest of the World and they’ve screwed that up.
They’ve taken control of Cities and States within our Borders and they’ve screwed Them up.
Now they are Aiming for the entire Great Experiment in Self Rule….
So they can Screw that up too.
There is a Historical Consensus…
Socialism Always ends in Oppression, Destruction and Death of Innocent Citizens.
