Bowling Blogging !!

We won two in Old Guys league Wednesday. I threw a 567 series, which is a 189 average. We won two in Cheap league last night. I threw a 550 series, a 183 average. I’m slowing getting better at this. Sadly my team just fell over dead in the 3rd game, one of us rolling an 83, another rolling a 128.

We won two. Doesn’t that sound like one of those silly pretend Chinese names? Wi Wun Tu?

A Stolen Post. Some Comments Are Too Good To Ignore.


This is a comment from an online comic strip. Ok, it’s a right wing comic strip, but I think it mostly exists so that the author can draw pictures of naked women. So, lowered expectations, right? WRONG.


Similar to MERS and SARS, the current Wuhanic Plague has pretty much run its course. It has just taken a lot longer because unlike MERS and SARS, the CCP managed to engineer toxins on the.spike of the rhinovirus delivery vehicle in addition to the toxins engineered on the rodent virus payload. The spike and its toxins were then instantiated in the experimental jabs (as directed by Fauci, a working vaccine would have used a fragment of the genetic sequence between the 5’ end and the S1 region of the spike to capture the coding for the viral envelope, AND the CCP was unable to engineer toxins onto that portion of the rhinovirus delivery vehicle) greatly delaying the natural base pair deletion mutation process that will result in the extinction of this particular Franken-virus.

Meanwhile, Fauci continues unabated in his efforts to make Mengele look like Mother Theresa by funding additional gain of function research with the CCP, who are building more bio research labs with ineffective security measures, and getting smarter about how to make their bio-weapons deadlier thanks to all the data they have obtained from 23 and me, ancestry.com, and other genealogy “research” sources.

Trace the arc from MERS and SARS to the current Wuhanic Plague to get an idea as to how much more virulent the next CCP bioweapon will be. Then increase your estimate by a few orders of magnitude, and you will be close to what will happen.

Based on MERS, SARS, the current bioweapon, and the six other times we have gone to China and helped them clean up after a release from their labs, we probably have less than a year before the next accidental or deliberate release by the CCP. IF we cannot immediately seal our borders and cut off all trade and interactions with China (our economy will survive just fine, foreign trade is less than. 15% of GDP, making us essentially a “closed” economy anyway, the Chinese economy will be obliterated), the results will be far worse than smallpox, the Spanish flu, and the current CCP sh*tshow combined.

The good news:

Due to how the bioweapons are created, and just as with MERS, SARS, the Wuhanic Plague, and the six other accidental “spills,” Azithromycin, Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Doxycycline, steroids, D3, Zinc, et al, will continue to be effective treatments (as Fauci well knew, see his emails), providing you are willing to curbstomp any politician, bureaucrat, doctor, pharmacist, or liberal who attempts to get between you and those treatments.

Wise individuals will stock up now.



Also in that comment thread was this link to 30 Facts You Need To Know: Your Covid Cribsheet.  Every one of them is linked to at least one source document. I’ve been pretty extreme with the Covid reading for over 18 months now, and I learned several new things, especially about the illegal (coerced or fraudulent) use of DNRs in hospitals and nursing homes. That’s some serious heinous shit right there, and if you’ve doubted that this whole thing is about global population elimination and wealth centralization into the pockets of the few, then this information will give you pause. Or convince you. And break your heart and sicken your soul. And it went on all over the world. And perhaps is STILL going on.


And the newly created verb of the day (VoD) is “de-assing” (or to “unass"). Love it.

High Tech Chicken News

Boy, this sure sounds appetizing. Researchers have figured out how to use a 3D printer to make blobs from mashed chicken, then fry them up with laser beams. Mmm, mmm, I can’t wait.

Who hasn’t dreamt of coming home after a long day and simply pressing a few buttons to get a hot, home-cooked 3D-printed meal, courtesy of one’s digital personal chef? It might make microwaves and conventional frozen TV dinners obsolete. Engineers at Columbia University are trying to make that fantasy a reality, and they’ve now figured out how to simultaneously 3D print and cook layers of pureed chicken, according to a recent paper published in the journal npj Science of Food.

A Long Slow Swim To The Car Dealer, An Afternoon In The Waiting Room

My service appointment for my Mazda was yesterday at 3pm. The dealership is over in PA, so it’s a 30 minute drive, highway the whole way. Except we had another Great Deluge rainstorm yesterday. I put the new tires I ordered in the trunk and left extra early. It was barely raining, just a fine sprinkle. It takes me about 90 seconds to leave here, go down the hill and get on the highway. Before I got as far as the next exit, 3 miles west, the sky had unzipped, visibility was down to maybe 50 yards, and traffic was almost at a standstill. And in mid-afternoon it’s mostly trucks. So it was a thrilling crawl all the way out there, but the rain had let up to merely heavy by the time I pulled in, right on time. Took me almost an hour. When I first hit the traffic, I went to pull up Waze on my phone, to see how bad things were. And that’s when I realized I had left my phone on the dining table. Oops.

I was there almost 4 hours, sitting around in the empty waiting room, with a muted TV playing endless episodes of a terrible game show from the 70s. Match Game PM? It’s was so old that Betty White still had light brown hair. There wasn’t a magazine in the place (because Covid!!) but I did find the Boy Scout handbooks from 1940 and 1944 to read. My goodness, how times have changed, how scouting has changed, and not for the better.

Oil change, fluid and filter check, got my new tires installed, new wipers, lube and tighten the bits here and there, check battery etc. Got a 4 wheel alignment done, first one since the car was new in early 2017. Might not have been necessary, but it seemed like a good idea. They came and talked to me; the brakes were worn down to nothing. Gak. I knew they were going; cars are built these days with an assumption that they’ll be leased for 3 years/36K miles, so the tires, brakes, rotors last about that long. New brakes and rotors, ka-ching!! At least the shocks and struts are in great shape. For now.

Several more intense rain squalls came through in the time I was there, but it was only lightly raining by the time my car was ready. Paid the bill, ouch. It started raining harder the moment I got back on the highway, of course. So I drove home carefully, noting that the new tires were every so much better in every way than the old OEM tires. Handling is instant and sharp, they ride nice, they didn’t hydroplane at all. And the brakes were Right Now.

So I’m poor but happy. Got home, hungry and tired. Found that the mechanic had texted and emailed me a video of him going over the car, showing that the brakes were done. Never had one of those before.

Yeah, it was time for new brakes

A little country music in the morning, energetic and true to real life

No Urban Obscurity Out Here


They say life is so much sweeter
Through the telephoto lens of fame
Around here you get just as much attention
Cheerin’ at the high school football game
...
I dreamed of going to Nashville
Put my money down and placed my bet
But I just got the first buck of the season
I made the front page of the Turnertown Gazette
...
Every last one, route one, rural heart’s
Got a story to tell
Every grandma, in-law, ex-girlfriend
Maybe knows it just a little too well
Whether you’re late for church
Or you’re stuck in jail
Hey, word’s gonna get around
Everybody dies famous in a small town

[ Ok, made it work; I had to snip off a whole bunch of older posts. Sorry. ]



La Palma eruption update:

Volcano has opened up at least 7 vents, so lava is flowing in several directions. At least 166 homes destroyed at this point by the thick flowing lava, 6000 people evacuated. Geologists calm the internets, saying no mega-tsunami will happen, which could devastate the east coast of US and drown Bermuda if it does. A full collapse of the western flank could drop 500 cubic kilometers of rock into the ocean, causing on helluva splash.

No I am not on a bee kick. Just a coincidence. And this is pretty strange, unusual news.

Bee Swarm Kills 63 Penguins

In the wild. In Africa.

More than 60 endangered African penguins were apparently killed by a swarm of bees in South Africa last week, in what bird conservationists described as an unusual occurrence.

The 63 birds were found dead inside the Boulders African penguin colony in Simon’s Town, located near Cape Town, according to a press release from the South African National Parks (SANParks). The penguins died sometime between Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.

A post-mortem revealed that all of the penguins had multiple bee stings. Preliminary investigations suggest they died after being stung by a swarm of Cape honey bees, the release added.

Honey bees die after stinging and many dead bees were found at the site where the birds had died. Samples of the penguins were still being tested for other “toxicity possibilities and diseases” to rule out other potential causes, according to the release.

“Usually the penguins and bees co-exist,” Dr. Alison Kock, a marine biologist with SANParks told the BBC.

“The bees don’t sting unless provoked - we are working on the assumption that a nest or hive in the area was disturbed and caused a mass of bees to flee the nest, swarm, and became aggressive,” she added.

Post-mortems determined the penguins were stung around the eyes and on their flippers.

The dead birds were transported to SANCCOB for post-mortems, and biological samples were sent for disease and toxicology testing. No external physical injuries were observed on any of the birds. The post-mortems revealed that all the penguins had multiple bee stings, and many dead bees were found at the site where the birds had died. Therefore preliminary investigations suggest that the penguins died because of being stung by a swarm of Cape honey bees. A dead penguin was also found on Fish Hoek beach yesterday which the SANCCOB vet has confirmed also had multiple bee stings. However, samples are still being tested for other toxicity possibilities and diseases to rule out any other potential cause.



I don’t think a whole lot of folks know that penguins live in Africa. The African penguin is not a really big one, standing a bit over 2 feet tall. Their range is the southern coast of Africa, from Namibia in the west, down to South Africa and up the east side a short distance. Once in a while some turn up in the Congo.

The Congo? Bet you didn’t know that the Democratic Republic of Congo (central deepest darkest tropical rainforest Africa) even has a sea coast. But they do. They got a 26 mile stretch on the west coast, just above the Congo River border with Angola. This is south of Cabinda, a narrow tiny province controlled by Angola, which itself is south of Republic of Congo, which used to be the People’s Republic of Congo (aka commies). The whole area once upon a time was Kongo, run by the Bantu people for at least 3000 years, a kingdom since the Middle Ages, until the colonial Portuguese showed up and took over.

Just buggin’, again.

It’s Not A Tuma Murder Hornet. It’s Merely A Giant European Hornet

image


Had another one of these gigantic hornets buzzing around our porch light by our door at 9pm last night. Huge thing, very scary. Very energetic. And flying about at night. W. T. F. ??

Turns out that “flies to the light at night” is a dead giveaway that this is one of those Giant European Hornets. Inch and a half long, maybe a little bigger. But with thin busy buzzy wasp wings, not the big slow wings of Cicada Killers, which are at least the same size and coloration.

Murder Hornets, aka the Giant Asian Hornet, are not bright yellow/black or bright yellow/dark reddish brown. They’re a darker, slightly reddish shade of yellow, and their black bands are thin and uniform. On our West Coast they tend towards a more reddish hue.

Not that anyone expects you to stop and closely examine one of these scary things when it comes near you. Hell no. Run!!

Señor, Your Canary She Is Toasted

Volcano erupting on Canary Island of La Palma, first time in 50 years.

The Cumbre Vieja volcano on Spain’s La Palma island is continuing to expel molten lava and ash after erupting on Sunday and is likely to do so for days, the president of the Canary Islands regional government warned Monday.

Angel Victor Torres added in a post on Twitter that there had been no reports of injuries or deaths so far.

The Canary Islands emergency services tweeted late Sunday that 5,000 people had been evacuated from the area nearest to the eruption.

That figure included 400 tourists evacuated from a hotel on La Palma and taken to a hotel on the nearby island of Tenerife, Torres told Spanish radio station SER in an interview.

After a night of spectacular images of the lava illuminating the island’s countryside, Torres told SER that experts believe there is still just one point of eruption from the volcano, near a “lightly populated” part of the island, which has a population of about 80,000 people.

Footage from the island showed at least one highway cut by a wall of lava; local officials said some houses had been damaged.

Officials have warned local residents to keep their distance from the eruption.
...

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has remained on La Palma, one of the smaller islands in the Canary Islands archipelago off the Atlantic coast of Morocco, after rushing there on Sunday.

After delaying his trip to New York for the United Nations General Assembly, Sanchez and other officials on Monday toured an evacuation center. He was later due to get a closer look at the volcano and its destruction.

The Canary Islands Volcanology Institute (Involcan) wrote in a statement on Facebook on Sunday that more than 25,000 earthquakes had been detected in the previous nine days around the Cumbre Vieja volcano.

Spanish news reports said the last major eruption from the volcano was 50 years ago.

“Hey José, what time is it?”

“It is time to leave señor!”

https://www.freep.com/picture-gallery/news/world/2021/09/20/volcano-spains-canary-island-la-palma-erupts/5788176001/

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-58620555

LA PALMA, Spain, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Lava flowing from Spain’s Canary Islands’ first volcanic eruption in 50 years has forced the evacuation of 5,500 people and destroyed around 100 houses but the streams were advancing slower than originally predicted, authorities said on Monday.

The flow of molten rock will not reach the Atlantic Ocean on Monday evening as earlier estimated, an official said. Experts say that if and when it does, it could trigger more explosions and clouds of toxic gases.

“The movement of lava is much slower than it was initially ... There has not been a large advance during the day,” local emergency coordinator Miguel Angel Morcuende told a press briefing on Monday evening. He said the stream had made its way about halfway to the coast.

A new stream of lava erupted from the volcano late on Monday, prompting the evacuation of residents in the town of El Paso, the regional emergency agency wrote on Twitter.

The volcano first erupted on Sunday, shooting lava hundreds of metres into the air, engulfing forests and sending molten rock towards the ocean over a sparsely populated area of La Palma, the northwesternmost island in the Canaries archipelago.

Biden Did It

Interesting link over at Maggie’s Farm: the wave of Haitian illegals coming up to Del Rio TX was because Mexico had been stashing them in their south for ages, and then Biden broke his word and reneged on a deal between us and them to limit illegals in exchange for billions in economic aid and covid vax. So to punish the lying gringo, and they sent up 20K of the buggers. Bused and trucked all the way by Mexico, free of charge, to a crossing point that the cartels don’t control. Did it during the busy, high traffic Mexican independence festivities, so we never saw them coming. Surprise!!

That braindead SOB. So take another lid Jojo, and have another vacation back in DE. One more fuckup, and this one’s all yours.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had to think about this for a couple of days before posting it. The idea makes zero sense to me. But then I realized their approach is to try to save the world by destroying it. Who though up this insanely gay stupid idea, Lt. Calley? Or was it the other Asian scientist with the amazingly bad name? ( the first is a researcher at Wuhan Virology named Man Li Wang. The other one is his gay cousin, a cloning expert named Woo-Suk Hwang. )

Save The Planet: Recreate The Woolly Mammoth, Destroy The Environment

image  image

I’m not making this up. Here’s the idea: global warming bad, m’kay? Tundra permafrost melting, m’kay? Trees and moss hold the soil in place, absorb sunlight, warmth goes down into their roots. Melting!! Plus they run the evil Carbon Cycle. Solution: get rid of the trees and moss in the high cold climate zone, and the ice will reflect the sunlight and the cold will come back, saving the permafrost and ending global warming climate change. But how to do this, as this vast frigid area is perhaps 20% of the land mass on the planet? Way too big for even a government make-work project. Answer: Go all Jurassic Park and clone the mammoth back into existence. These huge creatures ate huge amounts of vegetation, knocked down trees, and trampled the moss to bits.

Given that the Indian elephant is the closest relative to the old mammoths, and the African elephant is quite a big larger and has a larger womb, and that mammoths may have survived until just a few thousand years ago, plus their flash frozen bodies are being found all over Siberia and the far north, doing a little DNA dance shouldn’t be that hard. But let’s not stop there. Giant elephants with giant tusks might excite poachers, and might kill off the polar bears and wolves who attack them, so let’s screw with the genes and build a tusk-free mammoth. Yeah, that’ll work out, depriving them of their natural tools they used to survive, eat, and defend themselves. Because. Science!!

[ 2016 ] A South Korean specialist hails the opening of new World Mammoth Centre in Siberia, dedicated to bringing the beast back to life. Cloning guru Professor Hwang Woo-Suk did not go into details of the progress made in restoring the extinct species after several thousand years of extinction, but made clear he expected to publish new research in scientific journals as soon as ‘checks’ are complete.

Speaking in Yakutsk - Russia’s mammoth capital which is to host a pioneering new international centre dedicated to the creature - the controversial South Korean scientist confirmed progress in bringing the animal back to life after cooperation between experts from the two countries.

‘As a result of tireless joint efforts, we have achieved what we call the ‘initial stage’ on our way to recovering the mammoth,’ he said, thanking Russian president Vladimir Putin for his support for research in this field.


He did not put a timescale on when he hoped to see mammoths once more tromping the earth, but said: ‘We continue the search for new materials and samples. We need such cell that can share information. If we could find a sample that is not only well preserved but also in which biochemical processes can take place, we will be able to impregnate it with the help of the Asian elephant materials.’
...
In 2006, Hwang was dismissed by Seoul National University for faking groundbreaking work in stem cell research.

The university said Hwang had damaged its and his country’s reputation. Yet he remains at the forefront of research into cloning, and he is leading research into seeking the DNA of the woolly mammoth from remains of the creatures recovered from the permafrost in the Sakha Republic. He is also working on other extinct animals such as Siberian cave lions.

The mass death of mammoths began about 20,000 to 24,000 years ago. The process continued for a long time and had a pronounced second wave of extinctions that occurred 13,000 to 15,000 years ago.

The last major wave of deaths occurred about 9,000 to 12,000 years ago although there is evidence they survived in smaller groups near Alaska and at Wrangel Island, in the Russian Arctic, as recently as 3,700 years ago.



Fast forward to today:

An American company has announced its plans to create a woolly mammoth hybrid using Asian elephant DNA. Based on the now extinct woolly mammoth, the company’s team of genetic scientists claim their new creature will help in the fight against climate change.

Before we begin, unlike almost every other reporter on the planet I will offer you a dose of respect by refraining from childish terms such as “genetic horror show.” Neither will I refer to Jurassic Park or any other fantasy movies while telling this story.

Colossal, a US bio-tech company based in Austin, Texas, recently announced their plans to genetically edit DNA from Asian elephants. They aim to create a new mammoth hybrid or a mammoth-elephant hybrid that will resemble the ancient woolly mammoth. The purpose of creating these new mammoth hybrids is not, however, to fill a host of next-generation zoos but to “help fight climate change,” according to the researchers

Until now, most genetic researchers have tried to “recreate” mammoths from ancient DNA. Colossal and visionary Church plan to reverse engineer DNA from modern Asian elephants to create a new hybrid creature that will resemble the ancient mammoth.
...
Church said the animal will be custom designed to survive and thrive in the Arctic , so that it “will enjoy its time at -40C, and do all the things that elephants do, and mammoths did.”
...
Church believes that places like Siberia might be turned into grassland again, which the genetic scientist thinks might help the environment by “stopping erosion and controlling carbon dioxide.”

To stand these extremes conditions the animals will require “fat, shaggy hair, and small ears,” but their ancient ivory tusks will be omitted to save them being stalked by illegal poachers.

Visit Colossal’s technicolor web site here.  It has lots of cool pictures and colorful graphics, and plenty of nifty factoids and quotables.

“Earth’s old friend The Mammoth”

“MAY PREHISTORY THUNDER FORWARD. We have the DNA,the technology and the leading experts in the field. Next, we will have the Woolly Mammoth. Alive again.”

“The Woolly Mammoth is a vital defender of the earth.”




https://www.theguardian.com/science/2021/sep/13/firm-bring-back-woolly-mammoth-from-extinction

Gareth Phoenix, a professor of plant and global change ecology at the University of Sheffield, said: “While we do need a multitude of different approaches to stop climate change, we also need to initiate solutions responsibly to avoid unintended damaging consequences. That’s a huge challenge in the vast Arctic where you have different ecosystems existing under different environmental conditions.

“For instance, mammoths are proposed as a solution to help stop permafrost thaw because they will remove trees, trample and compact the ground and convert landscapes to grassland, which can help keep the ground cool. However, we know in the forested Arctic regions that trees and moss cover can be critical in protecting permafrost, so removing the trees and trampling the moss would be the last thing you’d want to do.”

Cops, Undercover FBI, Reporters Outnumber Protestors At Justice For Jan 6 Protest Rally

DC was nailed shut, fences and barricades everywhere, wall to wall Robocop security. Shame they can’t secure our southern border the same way, huh?

First read is that there were more reporters there than protestors, and more LEO - armored up, in uniform, or posing as insurrectionists - than there were reporters.

At one point they managed to arrest an undercover FBI guy. Hey, somebody saw a gun, right?

What a sham. Everybody knew it was an even more blatant false flag than the actual January 6th original. No more than a couple hundred actual citizens attended.

image

Boy, they sure had me fooled!

Analysts tore into the mass media who hyped the potential danger of Saturday’s rally in Washington, D.C., only to find that the actual attendees were outnumbered by the police and the press.

The media frequently reported on the danger of the “Justice for J6” rally, suggesting it would be the sequel to the deadly Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill the day Congress intended to certify the results of the November 2020 election. A heavy law enforcement presence was put in place in hopes of preventing another violent scene. Authorities erected temporary fencing around the Capitol and deployed heavy dump trucks to ring the rally site, while local police departments and the National Guard were on standby.

One person was arrested in the crowd for carrying a knife and a second man was arrested after someone reported to officers that they saw him carrying what appeared to be a handgun, police said.

But the rally did not turn violent and the awkward ratio of participants to press became clear to reporters as soon as the event got underway.

Huh, maybe there should be one of these planned every weekend. Defund the DC forces the fun way: bankrupt the city from paying them overtime.

September 16, 2021


I’m only putting up this post because I can make a cheeky double entendre alliterative title, like the real journalists at the big newspapers. That, and to show that the mandates are suicide for big companies and thus a lot of coercive hot air.


Vax Axe Hacks Back


Just to refresh your memory, there has been a nursing shortage in the USA since the 50s. A huge percentage of our doctors are foreign born and often foreign trained, as we simply do not generate enough of our own. There has been a medical worker shortage in the USA for years. The entire industry is understaffed except for management. When the pandemic hit and it was quickly learned that hospitals were super spreader events just by existing, plenty of back line staff (housekeeping, cleaners, drivers, food services, supply folks) left for safer pastures. Then when the public started avoiding hospitals as much as possible for the same reason, Big Med cut back their staffs even further, as a fat bottom line had to be preserved, public health be damned.


##############

My wife works for an eye doctors office. 17 years as a certified eye tech. Some time back they were bought out by a medium sized medical conglomerate, which in turn was then bought out by a large medical conglomerate. So her world is now corporate Big Med. And then along came the dread pandemic.

As the virus swept the nation, they worked without masks or any PPE for months, face to face with the patients, until the lockdown hit around March 23 2020. Then they were furloughed for 6 weeks until some bright bulb figured out that eye surgery isn’t always elective, and that, gosh, maybe, the ophthalmologists should be allowed to open up again.  Then they went back to work, and a few weeks later were required to wear masks. Not N95 kit, just the regular blue paper ones. A few weeks after that they got face shields or protective goggles. And possibly nitrile gloves. Better than nothing, but more about following the rules than protecting the workers.

And then Big Corporate found a health check app, where everyone had to check their temperature every morning and report any covid-like symptoms before coming to work. They changed their sick day policy so that everyone who called in with anything other than a family emergency or a physical injury had to run out and take a ‘rona test, right now. Once the vaccines rolled out, the morning health app started bugging them to get the jabs, requiring a daily Y/N response. At least one text came in every day encouraging this, and the HR/admins became vax pimps as well, mentioning how important this was at least once a day. It quickly became harassment. On the other hand, healthcare workers were first in line for the shots, and many of them had at least the first needle by the end of 2020.

At some point around the end of June this year, Big Corporate send out an ukaz, and edict from the czar. “We expect the vaccines to be authorized shortly. When that happens (or before that if we feel the FDA is too slow), if you are not already vaccinated, you will have 3 weeks to do so or you will be considered to have resigned.” Jabs For Jobs, 3 weeks or gone. Blunt.  And then the pressure really ramped up. “Let’s have a little meeting to talk about your situation.”

But here’s the funny thing. Big Med, right? Thousands of employees. Doctors, nurses, “front line health care workers”, etc. Plenty of the “heroes” who had put themselves at risk, staring viral death in the face every day for a year, really didn’t bother to get the jabs after the first wave of their co-workers got theirs.  Months later, after all this effort, even after the FDA authorization flim-flam, somewhere between a quarter and a third of all the folks working for this uber-corp still hadn’t taken the needle. And thus the OR ELSE edict.

Those 3 weeks came and went. A few people gave in to the threat and got the shots, but not many. They weren’t “hesitant”. They weren’t “anti-vaxxers”, as everyone who works there gets the annual flu shot, most have had the shingles shot, the Hep shot, etc. No, these were people in the medical field that had done their research and made their decision, and made their choice. Not just “NO” but “HELL NO”. And they were adamant.  Finding out that the FDA approval was a 3 card monte game, and that actual, approved and labeled Comirnaty vaccine didn’t yet exist and wouldn’t be available for months and months only stiffened their resolve. A competing Big Med group in the area which had issued the same edict at the same time (helluva coincidence, right?) dreamed up some excuse to push their deadline back a few weeks. Her corporation had to follow suit.

Then there was another softening action; people who could prove that they had had a positive PCR test would stay the executioner’s axe for 6 months from that date. This was a small sop to the studies coming out that showed (ultimate DUH) that natural immunity was long lasting and superior to artificial vax immunity. Which is something that you think that a MEDICAL group would know in the marrow of their bones (that’s a T-cell joke, m’kay? Long term immunity lives in your bone marrow.). But no. And even this was a foolhardy gesture, as people have been catching this virus since at least September 2019, and the PCR test has been in use since around January or February 2020. So getting it early on, and testing positive for it, happened well over a year ago. So that 6 month reprieve was a bit meaningless in many cases.

But as as of a few days ago, October 19 was the final final extended adjusted deadline. And Monday was the last day you could make an appointment to get the vax, and last Thursday they started giving the un-vaxxed their weekly PCR test, which is the OR part of the state mandates from both NJ and PA. (oh, and slap in the face, the results of that test are not reported to the person. The results go to corporate, who then passes them down to local ONLY if they’re positive. Dis.) Lots of attitude and bickering in the office, HR has to come in and re-assure the vaxxed admins that they won’t lose their jobs no matter what. But the entire tech team in her office is not vaxxed, and will not be vaxxed. Without them, the practice goes belly up. While the doctors can work up the patients, they can not do that and do enough exams or surgeries to make their bottom line.

And still the Comirnaty labeled stuff is unavailable.  The EUA vials have a liability exemption, so if you get one and your arm falls off the next day, boo frickin hoo for you.

Last night an email was sent out. Beneficent Corporate has pushed the deadline back another month, again. Now you can keep your job until November 19. You will have to take the weekly PCR test. Please get vaccinated!!

The workers have won. After a gigantic, 9 month long campaign of harassment and a 2 month campaign of threats, Big Corporate will soon be forced to back down to the state decreed “shots or tests” level. Because if they don’t, they’ll lose a third of their already undersized staff. And that will put them out of business. These mandates are a suicide pact for them. But the worker bees can find jobs anywhere doing anything right now. It’s a buyer’s market, and when it come to the vax, they’re not buying.

I’m so proud of my little rebel. Her body, her choice. Personal freedom. Acting like a true American.

RELATED, COVID, VAX MANDATES

Gosh, is medical knowledge beginning to supersede politically biased groupthink? Nah, it’s probably another save your bacon move, too little, too shortsighted, too late.

Spectrum Health Allows Immunity Exception To Vax Mandate, Temporarily

In a similar move seen by many hospital systems and administrations, Spectrum Health announced a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for all employees in July. However, unlike many other officials, the health system will now allow exemptions for those with natural immunity to the virus.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Spectrum Health will allow employees to be exempt from its vaccination mandate if natural immunity to COVID-19 can be proven.

The medical organization tells FOX 17 the decision came after a recommendation by its medical exemption committee.

To prove natural immunity, an employee must have a positive PCR or antigen test for COVID-19 from a lab certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988, plus a positive anitbody test. Both results must be from within the past 3 months.

Spectrum Health announced on July 28 that employees must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 within 8 weeks of a vaccine being approved by the FDA. Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine was approved on August 23, making October 18, 2021 the deadline for Spectrum Health employees to be vaccinated.

Spectrum Health’s medical exemption committee cited new research in its recommendation to provide the natural immunity waiver. In a statement to FOX 17, Spectrum Health noted that evidence from recent studies show a previous case of COVID-19 helps prevent catching coronavirus again and limits the risk of having severe symptoms if a person is reinfected.



•  As I’ve said before, limiting this to positive tests from 3 months is foolish, or even 8 months ago. Natural immunity lasts forever. Or at least a couple years.


•  Demanding antibodies, which are temporary, is just as foolish. A T-cell test exists that can prove long term immunity, even if it’s crossover bases. Use it.


•  “helps prevent” is a major misnomer. There are almost ZERO actual reinfections. Because if there were, the pro-vax people would be hammering you with this info 24-7 until your ears bled, and you know it. The media tried pushing the reinfection myth early this year, but it flopped, as it quickly turned out that nearly all of the very very few “reinfection” cases were really just false positive test results the first time around. People who thought they had the ‘rona, without symptoms or with very very minor ones (aka it was a little cold, not the covid)

PS: Here’s an American study that noticed a complete lack of reinfection and concluded that recovered people really don’t need the vaccines at all, ever.

Cumulative incidence of COVID-19 was examined among 52,238 employees in an American healthcare system. COVID-19 did not occur in anyone over the five months of the study among 2,579 individuals previously infected with COVID-19, including 1,359 who did not take the vaccine.



Gak, I am getting so sick of posting on this @#$#$%^#%$ virus.

So here, last one. Last one today. Sorry.

Pfizer now says vaccines alone won’t be enough, that early treatments and prophylaxis will be needed. Well no kidding. Where ya been for two full years, doc? Playing ostrich? Pfizer says they have a new medicine in trials. So super effective that they have such ultra confidence that they’ll get an instant EUA that they’re ramping up production long before their Phase 3 trial is complete.

The MSM is all exited. This is wonderful news!!! Finally, a treatment!! Cure people at home, reduce the load on hospitals, maybe use it as a preventative to keep people from even getting the virus in the first place. Woo hoo, pop open the champagne!!

And what kind of miracle med are they making? A protease inhibitor. Which is not actually a preventative.

The company described the drug as an “investigational orally administered protease inhibitor antiviral therapy designed specifically to combat COVID–19 – in non–hospitalized, symptomatic adult participants who have a confirmed diagnosis of SARS–CoV–2 infection and are not at increased risk of progressing to severe illness, which may lead to hospitalization or death.”



This is truly a miracle. No, not that protease inhibitors work. That’s old news. Especially as both proxalutimide and ivermectin are also the exact right kind of protease inhibitors, and highly effective. A protease inhibitor stops the viral RNA from breaking up (cleaving) the long chain poly-protein it creates into useful smaller pieces, and that keeps the virus from replicating. So the virus is already in your cells, but it can’t breed. This is very good, although keeping the virus out of your cells in the first place would be better. But if the virus can’t replicate, than the little bit that gets in you is not much more than an annoyance, and that whole covid-19 symptomatic reaction thing isn’t going to happen.

Just to be clear, this act of cleavage is not the “furin cleavage” you may have heard of. That one is part of the virus getting into your cells in the first place, with the whole spike protein / ACE-2 / receptor binding domain thing.

What’s news is the media reaction.

Remember that old Fedex commercial where the corporate guys are in a meeting, and the young guy comes up with a solution and gets ignored? Then the boss makes the same suggestion, waves his hand side to side, and everybody thinks it’s wonderful. New guy: That’s what I just said!! Everybody else: Yeah, but he did this. (the hand motion).

So soon we’ll have “Pfizermectin” and it will be praised unto heaven, with whipped cream and a cherry on top. And that icky horse paste crap will be trampled into the dirt and driven into obscurity.

Bowling Blogging !!

It’s a community thing

I had great fun last night at Old Guy’s league. While I am on a new team this year, I have been on teams with all of these guys before. Last night the team we played was the two guys from my summer league team (been on a team with one of them several times before), one guy from my old Tuesday league, and one guy from a summer league team a couple years ago. I’d been on teams with all the guys on the two teams bowling to our left, and the two teams bowling to our right. And many of these guys have been on teams with many of the other guys in the past. So it was a great social event. It’s not a closed world, but people who get into bowling usually stay into bowling, and as the years go buy you wind up knowing just about everybody.  And while there was “complex” math involved figuring out the averages for 3 of the bowlers on our lanes last night, in the end we gave up 70 pins per game, and our team was on or above average and theirs wasn’t, so we won it all, 7-0. And I was getting some good releases most of the night, getting my thumb out early and turning my hand just enough, so I kept my axis pretty vertical on my ball. This is a big step forward for me, so I’m happy.

Just buggin’ here this morning.

We Got Phasmids Here!!

I went out to my car this morning and there was a walkingstick insect on my window. Looked just like a bit of twig, or the world’s most anorexic pine cone. And then it moved. Yes, they’re as common as weeds, all over the country, but I’ve never actually seen one before. It was a male, grayish brown and scaly. The females are a bit on the green side. He hung on halfway to the store, and then bailed on me. The bug was about the size of a full grown preying mantis, but much thinner.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
