Self Identification


​  ​An NBA Star and New York's Governor Show That Liberal COVID Discourse is Devoid of Science​  Glenn Greenwald​    ("Science")
The view that the unvaccinated are all stupid, primitive and ignorant is getting more difficult to sustain, especially as liberal policy contradicts its own core premises. 
,,,Governor Kathy Hochul, when announcing her intent to use National Guard soldiers to replace health care workers fired for refusing the vaccine, told her audience: “yes, I know you're vaccinated, you're the smart ones.” She then said those who refuse to get the vaccine are not just stupid but have turned their back on God: “there's people out there who aren't listening to God and what God wants.” Gov. Hochul added that the vaccine “is from God to us and we must say, thank you, God,” and said to her "smart” vaccinated supporters: “I need you to be my apostles.”...​
  ​The attempt to equate being unvaccinated with stupidity and ignorance suffered a massive blow on Wednesday night when NBA star Jonathan Isaac was asked why he was hesitant to take the vaccine. Like many unions, the NBA's player union has refused a vaccine mandate, and Isaac, the 23-year-old player with the Orlando Magic who previously had and recovered from COVID, gave a stunningly compelling, informed, well-reasoned and thoughtful exposition on his rationale for not wanting the vaccine. Isaac also defended the right of individuals to make their own choice.​ (very brief video clip)

Natural immunity to covid is powerful. Policymakers seem afraid to say so.
People making decisions about their health deserve honesty from their leaders.

No Significant Difference in Viral Load Between Vaccinated and Unvaccinated, Asymptomatic and Symptomatic Groups Infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta Variant​  (preprint)
Abstract​:  ​We found no significant difference in cycle threshold values between vaccinated and unvaccinated, asymptomatic and symptomatic groups infected with SARS-CoV-2 Delta. Given the substantial proportion of asymptomatic vaccine breakthrough cases with high viral levels, interventions, including masking and testing, should be considered for all in settings with elevated COVID-19 transmission.

World Council for Health has this:
  Maintain a healthy immune system with good nutrition, fresh air, and simple supplements like Vitamin D, C, Zinc, and Quercetin.
Use the medicines and supplements that are available to you.
Be prepared! Keep a good supply of healthy food, supplements, and medicines so you will be ready if you become infected.
Treat Covid-19 early if you become symptomatic or receive a positive test. Early treatment helps reduce the severity and duration of Covid-19 infection.
Treat Covid-19 using a combination of therapies that address the complex nature of the illness:
Antiviral/antimicrobial therapies such as ivermectin
Anti-inflammatory medicines such as ibuprofen and N-acetylcysteine
Immune-balancing medicines and supplements such as Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, Quercetin, and Melatonin
Anticoagulant medicines such as aspirin
Symptom support such as cough mixtures, acetaminophen, nasal sprays, and mouthwashes
Seek advice from your doctor if you are concerned about Covid-19 symptoms or for early treatment options.
GO TO THE HOSPITAL if you are short of breath, have difficulty breathing, or are experiencing chest heaviness or pain.

The Market Crash Nobody Thinks Is Possible Is Coming​  Charles Hugh Smith   (but exactly when, sir?)
The banquet of consequences is being served, and risk-off crashes are, like revenge, best served cold.
​  ​The ideal setup for a crash is a consensus that a crash is impossible--in other words, just like the present: sure, there are carefully measured murmurings about a "correction" but nobody with anything to lose in the way of public credibility is calling for an honest-to-goodness crash, a real crash, not a wimpy, limp-wristed dip that will immediately be bought.

  Tomorrow marks the start of my last month of work at the clinic, since I am COVID-unvaccinated.
It was announced in an email that I would be leaving, but not why, so I added that it was involuntary, and explained my moral position of "standing naked with the Jews", likening this to WW-2 Germany. I've been judged pretty harshly, by people I have known for years, for "being hurtful", and probably 20:1 judged me and did not reply. I have been respectful, explained our family tour with bikes and backpacks visited the Anne Frank House, Dachau and Tuol Sleng torture museum, in Cambodia. I take this very seriously, and I bear the responsibility for my actions and my statements. One younger black man, working at the clinic, came to me yesterday, asking about my decision, and explaining that he had made the same choice, because he distrusts what is being forced upon people.
We agree. 
Perhaps people who see what is going down in this suck-out before the next tsunami-of-history should hold hands and walk to higher ground..

Unprepared to Surf


  1. John, I wake up everyday hoping to read another blog from you. The information and zest you put into each one is such an eye opener. I follow many doctors and scientists and read so many that think like you. When I read your blog, everything I've read previously from other's just seems to connect and make sense. I'm so proud of who you are and what you stand for. You truly want only what's right for others... praying someday people will wake up and realize that. Holly

    1. Thank You Holly,
      Maybe when I grow up I can be God's unemployed gift to "deplorables".
      I can dream, can't I?

  2. Good luck, John Day - you are doing the right thing.
    God help us all.

    1. Thank You, Mick. Sometimes you have to do the right thing without being able to see what comes next, just because you have to do the right thing...

  3. John I fully expect to wake up some day down the road and realize this was a good thing that is happening to us. We are doing the right thing. Dennis MGH

    1. Thanks Dennis, I agree, yet there is a stress in not seeing what's next. It is best to do the right thing, even if you can't see where the train is going when you jump off.
