A friend pointed out that publishing this is part of the OT author's job. I should have realized that. Thanks to the friend for letting me know!

Please feel free to talk about COVID here.

joke on Colbert last night:

"I opened up my new bullet proof vest and it had a label inside.

The label said, Does not stop bullets. Buy 2 more."

@NYCVG
the protective barriers behind which cognitive dissonance lies in wait. Laughter can blow a person right past their preconceived notions into uncharted waters. This could be a very helpful pathway to learning something new.

One can only hope.

On to Biden since 1973

my go to writers that has called this pretty much every step of the way.

The New Normal is still a nascent totalitarianism, but its essence is unmistakably evident. I described that essence in a recent column:

“The essence of totalitarianism — regardless of which costumes and ideology it wears — is a desire to completely control society, every aspect of society, every individual behavior and thought. Every totalitarian system, whether an entire nation, a tiny cult, or any other form of social body, evolves toward this unachievable goal … the total ideological transformation and control of every single element of society … This fanatical pursuit of total control, absolute ideological uniformity, and the elimination of all dissent, is what makes totalitarianism totalitarianism.”

Now, there will be peeps that will attempt to Pooh-Pooh the view this guy takes, but they won’t be able to refute it with the facts on the ground being what they are.
All ya gotta do is look at that Australian fuck in an interview getting red in the face a chundering about anti-mandate being anti-vax and the spittle flying from his face as he bloviates.
Somewhere I saw a twit posted with his performance with a caption of’ where’s his little mustache’.

Don’t think it’s coming here?

HAH!

@Tall Bald and Ugly Colbert's joke revives a tiny bit of hope that maybe we can avoid the looming fate we all see coming.

A NYC local reporter said last week that the pill will eliminate all the shots and boosters.

IDK if he is right.

But I am happy to entertain a fantasy happy ending, if only for a few minutes.

enslaved by diseases, at its root are so many bad eating choices. Why dont they tell people that the following changes helps?

COVID infects a certain subset of people disproportionately. Those with a number of common conditions.

But We can do a lot to reduce them. A lot of them are connected to processing of foods and our choices of foods.

We can actually lower our body's inflammatory markers and it seems likely, reduce our risks dramatically. By fasting, a bit from time to time. And some other things that are fairly easy.

Our body can basically clean away damaged tissue, literally it can "eat itself", kind of, and a rebuilding then occurs.. Autophagy. Polyphenols like resveratrol and especially quercetin help enhance the rebuilding effect of fasting.

(autophagy) is what this is called. No expensive patented drugs or procedures are involved.

This is a really big thing, for all humanity. Improving health will change all of our perspectives on life. We will take the longer views.

We will be prepared for the radical changes coming at an exponentially growing rate due to technology. We wont be panicking and need to try to force our desires on others in order to "futureproof" the planet and hijack democracy for our own selfish interests. We wont see any need to do that, because we are in it for the long haul.

Its almost like everything they tell us about diet is wrong. The answers we seek are basically what the pre-scientfic humans subsisted on and it is what we need.

Most doctors do not know this. But vets do. Because animal feeds are like human feed but worse..

We don't know as much as we think we do. We should recognize the limits of current technologies.

There is a reason the drug companies have been reluctant to develop a lot of new vaccines in the last 20 years or so.

People should peruse the medical literature asking that question. There may be much better, cheaper ways to attack rapidly mutating coronavirudae.
