High Fine For Doctors Who Incorrectly Prescribe HCQ Or Ivermectin (MC)

Doctors who prescribe (hydroxy) chloroquine or ivermectin against covid-19 will now receive a fine of up to 150,000 euros imposed by the inspection. This may also include other medications that are prescribed outside the guidelines. The IGJ calls on pharmacists to report. The Health and Youth Care Inspectorate regularly receives reports that doctors prescribe medicines that are contrary to the treatment recommendations for covid-19, the IGJ reports on its website. When asked, the IGJ spokesperson cannot explain exactly how many doctors this is about and what their specialty is. “We have talked to a number of doctors about this, but because some of them continue to do so, we are now going to impose fines. We are not going to warn anymore, “said the spokesman.

The fines could run in the thousands of euros, she says. “There is no real minimum amount and the exact amount of a fine will depend on the circumstances. Did the doctor prescribe the medicine once or several times? How many patients has it been prescribed, things like that. The maximum amount for a fine is 150,000 euros. ” The Inspectorate sees prescription as a risk to the quality of care and points out that all doctors’ professions in the Netherlands advise against using (hydroxy) chloroquine or ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of corona. According to the IGJ, (hydroxy) chloroquine has been proven to be ineffective against covid-19 and at the same time can cause serious side effects. There is also no scientific basis for the use of ivermectin. The IGJ states that it is allowed to prescribe medicines off-label, but that there are strict rules for this.

Pharmacists can also be held responsible if they provide these medicines inappropriately. The IGJ calls on them to report if they are offered prescriptions and suspect that this is for the treatment of corona.

New York Launches COVID-19 Vaccination ID Program (JTN)

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo this week announced the rollout of his state’s vaccine passport program, a measure the Democratic politician says will help the state continue to reopen its long-shuttered economy. In a statement on Friday, Cuomo revealed the debut of “Excelsior Pass,” what the governor’s office said was a “free, voluntary platform … which utilizes proven, secure technology to confirm an individual’s recent negative PCR or antigen test result or proof of vaccination.” The program, developed in partnership with IBM, will allow users to either “print out their pass or store it on their smartphones,” permitting them to gain access to public venues and establishments such as “major stadiums and arenas, wedding receptions, or catered and other events above the social gathering limit.” “New York State is the first state in the U.S. to formally launch this potentially transformational technology,” the governor’s office said.

Keep Your Covid-19 Vaccination Card Safe – You’re Going To Need It (F.)

Your most precious travel accessory this summer is going to be a small white piece of paper. Some destinations, cruise lines and major sports venues are already requiring travelers to provide proof that they have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Other businesses, like Krispy Kreme, are offering freebies and other perks to people who can prove they’ve been inoculated. If you are among the 48 million Americans who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, the only proof that you have received your Covid shots is typically your paper vaccination record card with the CDC logo in the upper corner. The vaccination card tells you what Covid-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it — but that information is not being stored in any centralized, easily searchable database.

If you lose your card, you should return to the place you received your vaccination and ask for a replacement. “If you do not receive a Covid-19 vaccination card at your appointment, contact the vaccination provider site where you got vaccinated or your state health department to find out how you can get a card,” says the CDC website. That’s easy enough if you were vaccinated at a pharmacy chain but more difficult if you had to travel cross-state or inter-state to be vaccinated at a drive-through or pop-up event. All Covid-19 vaccination providers are required to report data within 72 hours in their state’s immunization system, so there should be a back-up record of your vaccination status there. The CDC has a list of the Immunization Information System (IIS) in each state, which is where to start if you need a replacement card and either can’t remember where you were vaccinated or have difficulty contacting the facility.

Digital vaccine passports may become a reality in the future, but for now your paper vaccination record card is an extremely valuable possession. Here are five easy ways to protect it for safekeeping.

Mexico Covid Death Toll Leaps 60% To Reach 321,000 (G.)

Mexico’s government has acknowledged that the country’s true death toll from the coronavirus pandemic now stands above 321,000, almost 60% more than the official test-confirmed number of 201,429. Mexico does little testing, and because hospitals were overwhelmed, many Mexicans died at home without getting a test. The only way to get a clear picture is to review “excess deaths” and review death certificates. On Saturday, the government quietly published such a report, which found there were 294,287 deaths linked to Covid-19 from the start of the pandemic through 14 February. Since 15 February there have been an additional 26,772 test-confirmed deaths. The higher toll would exceed that of Brazil, which has the world’s second-highest number of deaths after the US.


The Johns Hopkins coronavirus tracker puts Brazil’s toll at about 307,000 and the United States’ at 548,000, but Mexico’s population of 126 million is far smaller than either of those countries. The new report also confirms just how deadly Mexico’s second wave in January was. At the end of December, excess death estimates suggested a total of about 220,000 deaths related to Covid-19 in Mexico. That number jumped by around 75,000 in just a month and a half. Also suggestive were the overall number of “excess deaths” since the pandemic began, around 417,000. Excess deaths are determined by comparing the deaths in a given year to those that would be expected based on data from previous years.

Deceived by storylines.

Race and False Hate Crime Narratives (Q.)

The reaction to the mass shootings in Boulder, Colorado, and Atlanta, Georgia, over the last week has revealed how invested the Democratic establishment is in one all-powerful narrative. Both shootings produced an immediate response from the media, Democratic politicians, and activists—that the slaughters were the result of white supremacy and that white Americans are the biggest threat facing the US. That interpretation was reached, in the case of the Boulder shooting, on the slimmest of evidence, and in the case of the Atlanta shooting, in the face of contradictory facts.

After the Boulder supermarket attacks, social media lit up with gloating pronouncements that the shooter was a violent white male and part of what Vice President Kamala Harris’s niece declared (in a since-deleted tweet) to be the “greatest terrorist threat to our country.” (Video of the handcuffed shooter being led away by the police appeared to show a white male.) Now that the shooter’s identity has been revealed as Syrian-American and his tirades against the “Islamophobia industry” unearthed, that line of thought has been quietly retired and replaced with the stand-by Democratic response to mass shootings—demands for gun control.

But the false narrative about the Atlanta spa shootings still has legs. It represents a double lie—first, that the massacre was the product of Trump-inspired xenophobic hatred, and second, that whites are the biggest perpetrators of violence against Asians. The most striking aspect of these untruths is the fact that they were fabricated in plain sight and in open defiance of reality. Given the enduring hold of the Atlanta story on mainstream discourse, it is worth examining in some detail.

“We’re so busy enthralled in race, enthralled in fighting one another.”

Joe Biden’s ‘Horrible’ Regime Is ‘Way More Racialised’ Than Before (Sky)

President Joe Biden’s administration is keeping the “racial narrative” going because it is the “biggest smoke screen” to all its policies, according to US political commentator Benji Irby. Mr Irby told Sky News the country under Joe Biden at the moment is “absolutely horrible”. “The country is way more racialized than usual; everything’s about race,” he said. “Everybody’s concerned about all types of slights and microaggressions and the left are really taking over everything. “We’re in really bad straits here, it’s not very good”.


Mr Irby said the left and the Biden administration are fuelling racial tensions and using it as a “smokescreen”. “No one’s ask asking about Hunter Biden and this new gun scandal, no one’s asking about Joe Biden being bought and sold by China. “No one’s talking about the fact that China now has a larger navy than the US, and that China is making moves towards Taiwan, and is taking over our country as far as busines is concerned. “We’re so busy enthralled in race, enthralled in fighting one another.”

Much scarier than the filibuster is the fact that Biden was first elected to the Senate in 1972.

What Biden’s Talking Filibuster Could Look Like (IC)

When President Joe Biden was first elected to the Senate in 1972, the filibuster was rarely deployed, and when it was, it could be beaten back by a vote of two-thirds of the Senate. That almost never happened, and instead the threat of a filibuster would sink legislation, not because the majority couldn’t overcome it but because they didn’t want to waste a few weeks on it and had other pressing business to get to. In 1975, the rule was reformed to lower the threshold from 67 down to 60, though it was still rarely used. The Senate that Biden grew up in — remember, he was 29 when he was elected — largely passed bills by a simple majority vote, including controversial bills. When the debate was over, even senators who opposed the underlying bill would vote yes on what’s known as “cloture,” which means closure of the debate.

That began to change, first with Harry Reid, D-Nev., as Senate minority leader, determined to fight President George W. Bush, and then went into overdrive under Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. McConnell effectively raised the threshold any legislation needed to 60 votes in order to undermine President Barack Obama. For somebody like Biden, that phenomenon — that legislation needs 60 votes to pass — is a relatively new innovation, not the beating heart of the Senate as some people claim. And nobody knows that better, perhaps, than Biden himself. He alluded to his old-school cred in an interview with George Stephanopoulos published Tuesday evening by ABC. “I don’t think that you have to eliminate the filibuster, you have to do it what it used to be when I first got to the Senate back in the old days,” Biden said. “You had to stand up and command the floor, you had to keep talking.”

“You’re for bringing back the talking filibuster?” Stephanopoulos asked. “I am. That’s what it was supposed to be,” Biden said. “It’s getting to the point where, you know, democracy is having a hard time functioning.” Notice that Biden is using the credibility he owns as a Senate traditionalist — he was elected six years before I was even born, and I’m getting old — to make the case that reform is necessary to defend democracy and return the Senate to the working condition it was in when he got there. It’s no secret that Biden was far from progressives’ first choice to win the Democratic nomination, but he may possess a unique ability to disarm centrist and conservative Democrats who otherwise might oppose the same project or program if it was proposed by Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.; or, really, anybody but Biden.

“Nord Stream 2 is really bad for you. A trade/investment deal with China is really bad for you. Now sit. Good girl.”

US-NATO vs Russia-China in a Hybrid War To The Finish (Escobar)

Let’s start with comic relief: the “leader of the free world” has pledged to prevent China from becoming the “leading” nation on the planet. And to fulfill such an exceptional mission, his “expectation” is to run again for president in 2024. Not as a hologram. And fielding the same running mate. Now that the “free world” has breathed a sigh of relief, let’s return to serious matters – as in the contours of the Shocked and Awed 21st Century Geopolitics. What happened in the past few days between Anchorage and Guilin continues to reverberate. As Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed that Brussels “destroyed” the relationship between Russia and the EU, he focused on how the Russia-China comprehensive strategic partnership is getting stronger and stronger.

Not so casual synchronicity revealed that as Lavrov was being properly hosted by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Guilin – scenic lunch in the Li river included -, US Secretary of State Tony Blinken was visiting NATO’s James-Bondish HQ outside Brussels. Lavrov made it quite clear that the core of Russia-China revolves around establishing an economic and financial axis to counterpunch the Bretton Woods arrangement. That implies doing everything to protect Moscow and Beijing from “threats of sanctions by other states”; progressive de-dollarization; and advances in crypto-currency. This “triple threat” is what is unleashing the Hegemon’s unbounded fury.

On a broader spectrum, the Russia-China strategy also implies that the progressive interaction between the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU) will keep apace across Central Asia, Southeast Asia, parts of South Asia, and Southwest Asia – necessary steps towards an ultimately unified Eurasian market under a sort of strategic Sino-Russo management. In Alaska, the Blinken-Sullivan team learned, at their expense, that you don’t mess with a Yoda such as Yang Jiechi with impunity. Now they’re about to learn what it means to mess with Nikolai Patrushev, head of the Russian Security Council. Patrushev, as much a Yoda as Yang Jiechi, and a master of understatement, delivered a not so cryptic message: if the US created “though days” for Russia, as they “are planning that, they can implement that”, Washington “would be responsible for the steps that they would take”.

Meanwhile, in Brussels, Blinken was enacting a Perfect Couple routine with spectacularly inefficient head of the European Commission (EC) Ursula von der Leyen. The script went something like this. “Nord Stream 2 is really bad for you. A trade/investment deal with China is really bad for you. Now sit. Good girl.” Then came NATO, which put on quite a show, complete with an all-Foreign Minister tough guy pose in front of the HQ. That was part of a summit – which predictably did not “celebrate” the 10th anniversary of NATO’s destruction of Libya or the major ass-kicking NATO “endured” in Afghanistan. In June 2020, NATO’s cardboard secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg – actually his US military handlers – laid out what is now known as the NATO 2030 strategy, which boils down to a Global Robocop politico-military mandate. The Global South has (not) been warned.

“In the past, everyone was really concerned about what the editor of The New York Times put above the fold. Now, we should be concerned about what Facebook’s algorithm decides to rank higher..”

The Facebook Filter Bubble (AEA)

In his 2020 victory address, President Biden called for an end to what he termed this “era of grim demonization.” He forcefully urged Congress and fellow Americans to overcome their political differences. “The refusal of Democrats and Republicans to cooperate with one another is not due to some mysterious force beyond our control,” Biden said. “It’s a decision. It’s a choice we make.” And yet, that choice isn’t just up to US citizens or individuals on Capitol Hill. It’s also a decision for today’s largest social media company, according to a paper in the American Economic Review. Author Ro’ee Levy found rigorous evidence from a field experiment that Facebook’s algorithm results in people being exposed to more news matching their own opinions, and it may be increasing polarization.


Polarization in the United States has been on the rise for some time. As of 2014, Republicans and Democrats were more divided than at any point in the previous two decades. Other studies have argued that this growing division drives dysfunction in Congress and undermines trust in important institutions. Meanwhile, Facebook has emerged as a dominant source of news. As recently as 2008, fewer than one in eight Americans consumed news on any social media site at all. By 2019, 52 percent of Americans were receiving at least some of their news on Facebook, which was more than the share getting news on all other social media platforms combined. “In the past, everyone was really concerned about what the editor of The New York Times put above the fold. Now, we should be concerned about what Facebook’s algorithm decides to rank higher,” Levy told the AEA in an interview.

Experts Fear Ever Given May Be Stuck In Suez For Weeks (G.)

Dredge and pull, dredge and pull. Dislodging a vessel that has become lodged in sand is simple, in theory. If the vessel is as long as New York’s Empire State building is tall, then the process gets more complicated. Dredgers, tugboats and excavators, guided by world-leading consultants in salvaging ships, have been working for days to free the 220,000 tons, 400 metre-long Ever Given that became stuck in the Suez canal last Tuesday. It has created a jam of more than 200 vessels in one of the world’s key trade lanes. The ripple effect on shipping may be felt for weeks – and longer if the Japanese-owned “megaship” cannot be dislodged any time soon. On Saturday the chairman of the Suez Canal Authority (SCA), Osama Rabie, said that work to dislodge the ship was continuing and had so far allowed its stern and rudder to move and its propeller to restart.

But the changing tide had jammed the equipment once again. “The type of soil we’re dealing with is very difficult to manage, as are the tides which affect the vessel due to its size and its cargo load,” he said. Asked when the ship could be afloat again, Rabie suggested it was possible “today or tomorrow, depending on the ship’s responsiveness to the tides”. A key hurdle has been the sheer size and weight of the enormous vessel, part of a class of container ships that has ballooned in size over the past two decades, partly due to the proliferation of “just in time” logistical models that keep companies lean, efficient and reliant on fast deliveries from factories and warehouses overseas.

The experts brought in to free the vessel, the Dutch company SMIT Salvage and Japanese specialists Nippon Salvage, have been working to dislodge tens of thousands of cubic metres of earth around the stricken vessel, as tugboats help to pull it free. “These are the experts, but it took them three days to get into country, now they have to find these large tugboats and get them to the canal, they’re not positioned there,” said Captain John Konrad, a maritime expert and the founder of maritime news-site gCaptain. The refloating process, he explained, will likely involve a manoeuvre called a “backwards twist,” using large tugboats to rotate the ship counterclockwise and dislodge it from the bank after dredging sand from around the bow.

“In any economy where money hoarding and accumulation is not curtailed, and where most of the money in circulation is issued by private banks as debt, with or without interest, there will be a system-wide scarcity of money..”

Monetary Adaptation To Planetary Emergency (UoC)

The existence of a Monetary Growth Imperative (MGI) and its implications for economic stability, democracy and environmental sustainability have been put forward by environmental economists for around two decades but recently criticised as invalid. Given the urgency of the climate and ecological crisis alongside spiralling public and private debt, the MGI deserves closer attention. Methods: For this review paper we analysed studies on the MGI, using a selective, iterative approach to the literature review. Results: Our critical review of the research on the MGI revealed several full academic treatments of the argument and even a taxonomy of them, most of which have not been refuted. We articulate one of them in a new way, as well as two more which have not received academic treatment, before considering why it might be thought politically expedient that any MGI should be refuted, or at least seen to be refuted.

Conclusion: In any economy where money hoarding and accumulation is not curtailed, and where most of the money in circulation is issued by private banks as debt, with or without interest, there will be a system-wide scarcity of money available to people and organisations to service their debts – unless, that is, there is continual economic growth. To avoid the deleterious implications of a shortfall of money in an economy, policies are used to maintain economic growth, which is therefore a form of imperative on society. This MGI may be accentuated, at a system-wide level, by the practice of full-reserve re-lending of money.

Interest is not the main driver of the imperative, but because it increases the transfer of money to those who are wealthy and more likely to hold that money in a stagnant form that is not available for debt servicing by others, interest charges may indeed exacerbate the MGI. We conclude that the debt-money system creates a competition for money between debtors and savers which is resolved through creation of more debt-money, which in turn drives growth and the resulting ecological and climate emergency.

    @ Adlertag in the previous post.

    Seems as if you’ve been watching too much BBC.
    You would never know from them that the median age of death from Covid in the UK is 82.4 yrs. and that the under 60 cohort are at greater risk from the seasonal flu than Covid.

    Listen to Mike Yeadon’s latest interview – he was previously the VP of Respiratory Research at Pfizer.
    “We are being lied to”.

    It’s extraordinary.

    Covid-19 vaccines do not completely prevent transmission, Prof Anthony Harnden, deputy chair of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has said.

    ” …it’s still possible, even though you’ve been vaccinated, to get infected, have no symptoms and transmit it to others. That’s why it’s important that all those who get vaccinated still stick to the rules.”

    I told myself to not to, but I’m jumping in on @ adlertag’s post from yesterday as well.

    1) If this is an “extinction level event” it’s unlikely that isolating, wearing ill-fitting masks, and washing our hands is going to stop it. Might as well live until we die. Or something like that.

    2) On “covid long haulers.” This is nothing new. Post-infectious sequelae occurs following many infections, with regular flu and Lyme disease being two that immediately come to mind. The sad fact is, very few in the medical community care about post-infectious sequelae that results from other infections (in fact many deny it exists) because there is no value in fear porn with those instances. So people with ME, CF, etc., continue to suffer or get told it’s all in their heads.

    3) Many drs are now treating covid long haulers with Ivermectin and other meds/supplements with good results. Hopefully this will translate into treatments for people suffering with non-covid post-infectious sequelae. One can always hope.

    4) A very small percentage of children will probably have long-term health consequences from covid, and that is unfortunate. This also happens to a small percentage of children after having other types of infections as well (see #2 above).

    Raul provides links to articles that support the mainstream covid narrative as well as to articles that offer a different perspective. He hardly needs to focus all his efforts on supporting the mainstream covid narrative since that info can be found, quite literally, everywhere. In fact, at this point it’s nearly impossible to do an internet search for any type of medical information without covid links dominating all of the first pages of the search results.

    Also … about NY vaccine passports. It appears I’m going to be the a non-star-bellied Sneetch very soon. I’m wondering whether I’ll wind up having to relocate to a Red state in the future just so I can leave my house. How sad is that? My family is here. I’m getting old. I don’t want to relocate, nor do I have the drive and energy anymore to do so.

    So, @ adlertag: is covid really so “extinction level” that I should have to get an experimental “vaccine” injection (that doesn’t keep me from getting or spreading the infection) so I can continue to live in my community? Is it? Are you absolutely certain of that??

    Vaccine passes, a “free, voluntary platform”

    Except, like yesterday, it’s not. It’s free except someone paid for the vaccine, to billionaire monopolies. It’s voluntary except if you don’t have one, you can’t do anything.

    I believe, as I said to Alder, that they are just creating parallel societies. Except they unexpectedly find that the uncooperative one tells jokes online, goes to beach parties, kisses all the girls, and lives an amazing life. The other is terrified to speak, doesn’t go anywhere, can’t do anything, and lives on tut-tutting and violently oppressing everyone like lemon-sucking church ladies. Sooooo, which one will you join? More importantly, since no one’s dying, which one will your KIDS join?

    Ask Miami. The verdict is in. You lost.

    …Oh, and this from a guy who INTENTIONALLY murdered 15,000 people, just to get his death stats up in NY, and therefore the largely-rural U.S., and after ordering everyone to Chinese New Year parade, didn’t clean the subways for NINE MONTHS while they claimed it was the greatest threat to life on earth. …And the virus only comes out after 10pm. …And that restaurants, which are proven to be a 1% vector, are closed, while we defund and revolving-door nursing homes, which are 80%. If you defy these anti-science measures, we put you in prisons, which are ALSO not protected. So let me get this straight: if I might not be not Covid safe, you’ll put me where I’m definitely not Covid safe (i.e. anyplace they control) and die? Because: Science? Hippocrates? Yup. To keep you safe, we have to make you get it. We had to kill the town to save the town, My Lai my dear.

    Sure, everybody’s going to follow you, Andy. Sure.

    Personally, it sounds great. It lets me know who’s an anti-science idiot and who’s against all human rights.

    “Race and False Hate Crime Narratives (Q.) “

    Now why don’t we trust them? Is it because they lie with every waking breath? The mass shooting in Va. Beach: yeah, two guys shooting at each other with reckless, terrible aim. That is technically a mass shooting, but also an “unintentional” one. If only everyone in the crowd were armed, but we’re just not there yet, American tropes aside. “When seconds count, the police are minutes away.” …Who will shoot you themselves when they arrive. In 95% of counties, it’s “When seconds count, the police are 45 minutes away”, and I’m not kidding. In the west, there are DRIVEWAYS that are 5 miles long. That’s when it’s not washed out or winter. Most counties have one sheriff overnight and I don’t know what average county size would be, but say 35 minutes, side to side? Two calls? Sorry, you’re SoL. Guess you’ll have to die while I’m dealing with this 10-101 domestic I can’t leave. You’re on your own. Not everyone lives in a city, Jack.

    Have there been ANY actual race hate crimes anyone can remember? And which side was hated? This shooter was a Syrian. Like another I remember last year, I see they photo-whitened his skin in his public shots. Nice. Now why don’t we trust again? As ultra-left Jimmy Dore says, the job of reporters is to ASSUME everything coming from government is a lie and go find the truth. They do the opposite.

    Joe Biden’s ‘Horrible’ Regime Is ‘Way More Racialised’ Than Before (Sky)”

    His administration and party are the ones who say Black people are so illiterate, incompetent, and lazy they can’t find the DMV. Reporters have gone into such neighborhoods before and asked these man-on-the-street questions. “Elizabeth Warren says you don’t know where the DMV is, do you know?” “Sure, it’s over on Baker and third.” “Do you have an I.D. card?” “Yeah, I need one to buy beer.” The end. But if they weren’t racists helping the poor jungle children, they wouldn’t be the 100 year Democratic party, the one that installed Jim Crow. The one that controls EVERY worst city for blacks in the whole U.S. This is EXACTLY the plantation racism, that without master, the slaves just wouldn’t survive, wouldn’t know what to do, you see, it’s my LOVE and benevolence to HELP them, make them my children, that keeps me a plantation owner. I kid you not. THAT was the real face of slavery back when. Master, the white people, the insider government, was SUPERIOR, so “DO WHAT YOU’RE TOLD.” Or else.

So you need 80 of the largest tugboats, which we don’t have, in the channel where they wouldn’t fit, to pull on the mooring lines which can’t stand the weight, and so it doesn’t tip over tied at the waterline or lower where they aren’t installed.

    Top Yale Doctor/Researcher: ‘Ivermectin works,’ including for long-haul COVID

    These vaccines could not have been granted EUA by the FDA if it could be shown that there was an alternative existing treatment for COVID. Remember – the vaccine trials only determined that they could reduce the severity of symptoms, not their transmission. Ivermcetin does exactly that – even better than the vaccines do!

    Early treatment with HCQ the same.

    The thing is that in terms of medical treatments, Holland has a very different mindset compared to the USA, UK and most other countries. Here it’s always all about saving money so if medicine X is cheaper than medicine Y, even though Y is the big name brand, then your doctor will prescribe you X, but if the doctor can get away with it, he/she will prescribe you nothing. That happens a lot in this country and on balance I think it is a good thing.

    When it comes to Ivermectin, though, Holland has to follow what the rest of the EU is doing. I’m pretty certain that if it wasn’t for the EMA then we would embrace ivermectin.

    Quite high it looks like, perhaps because such nos. are almost never bruited about. It appears that specific antibodies are present close on to 25% of the CH population, a rough guess. The lower estimate for F-speaking CH is 20%. Controversy as to how long these antibodies ‘last’ exists – my take is, = an irrelevant question. Sars-Cov2 is fought off in many ways (see children..) by for ex, T-cells, other mechanisms. Specific antibodies are just a part of the battle (as I understand it.) Those who fought it off once will do so again (yes, sigh, the scary variants – color me sceptical…)

    CH numbers as % are likely similar to France, Germany, Italy, with some high margins for variation.

    This morning I took a bicycle ride before the rain and at the end I stopped at the bagel shop. I donned my navy bandana, went in, and ordered an everything bagel with cream cheese. While I was waiting with 4 other customers, a young woman came in with a child of about four years old.
    Mother: There’s a lot of people in here, honey. We better double mask.” [Reaches down to put a second mask on her child, whose face is already covered.]
    Child [squirms].” MMmmmmm, no!”
    Mother:[Finishes tying the second mask around the child’s face] “It’s only for a few more minutes, honey.”

    As Donald Trump might say, “Sad.”

    Gotta give proper credit to the New York State marketing department, naming the vaccine I.D. card Excelsior Pass. A little stroke of genius using the State motto “Excelsior” (Ever Upward!) combined with “Pass,” with its invocation of Easy Pass, the automatic toll booth technology that most have already submitted to; also connotations of the innocuous “hall pass” and the term “free pass”. Certainly, the excellent, ever-upward, free and easy pass to see a Giants football game or an art exhibit or a Bruce Springsteen performance on Broadway. Provided you’ve been an obedient citizen and have submitted to all the requirements.

    And it’s cutting edge, too! It … “utilizes proven, secure technology to confirm an individual’s recent negative PCR or antigen test result or proof of vaccination.”…”New York State is the first state in the U.S. to formally launch this potentially transformational technology,” the governor’s office said.

    So does this mean the Excelsior Pass technology is as proven as the vaccine? That would be a relief. Here’s a thought: “potentially transformational technology” (provided by State sponsor IBM). Right. So this is, what, an interim step before we all get injected with a “health bio” chip, that can be updated remotely and scanned anywhere? It’s already done for dogs.

    And what’s a few thousand deaths or a little groping from our randy, single governor when compared to the good he’s doing by being the first to unleash this transformational technology on the citizens of the United States?

    Professor Jay Bhattacharya, one of the co-authors of the Great Barrington Declaration:

    “- The virus is seasonal and late fall/winter is its season. It is very unlikely, given that this is the case, that the virus will spread very widely during the summer months.

    “- There are a few mutations that provide the virus with a selective advantage in infectivity and may increase its lethality very slightly, though the evidence on this latter point is not solid. We should not be particularly concerned about the variants that have arisen to date.

    “- The scientific evidence now strongly suggests that COVID-19 infected individuals who are asymptomatic are more than an order of magnitude less likely to spread the disease to even close contacts than symptomatic COVID-19 patients.

    “- Asymptomatic individuals are an order of magnitude less likely to infect others than symptomatic individuals, even in intimate settings such as people living in the same household where people are much less likely to follow social distancing and masking practices that they follow outside the household.

    “- The evidence that mask mandates work to slow the spread of the disease is very weak. The only randomised evaluation of mask efficacy in preventing Covid infection found very small, statistically insignificant effects

    “- masks are deleterious to the social and educational development of children, especially young children. They are not needed to address the epidemic. In Sweden, for instance, children have been in school maskless almost the whole of the epidemic, with no child Covid deaths and teachers contracting Covid at rates that are lower than the average of other workers.”

    I’m not arguing the research on ivermectin, it’s all very convincing to me. However, if you look at the officially sanctioned studies pointed to by EMA, then you see that they only ever look at ivermectin in isolation, never in combination with vitamins C and D plus zinc, so no wonder they don’t see it’s worth.

    @absolute galore: regarding “the automatic toll booth technology that most have already submitted to”

    We no longer have a choice about submission to that. They’ve removed all manned toll booths on the thruway. I’ve never had an “easy pass” for electronic tolls and had to travel the thruway last December. About 6 weeks later I received a bill that made no sense (toll exits listed/billed were FUBAR based on my travel). Paid it because the amount due was roughly accurate so who cares, right?

    Then I received a second bill a month after the first … for the same trip. The toll exits on the second bill were literally indecipherable. I called the 800 number. Accidentally got transferred to a Supervisor (she wasn’t happy but helped me). Bottom line, there are cameras all along the thruway. Your vehicle is recorded even when you aren’t exiting. Then things apparently can go off the rails and you get charged for some extra times you pass a camera. The woman on the phone says this happens all the time. System doesn’t work. And if you don’t call within the window for the non-payment penalty (30 days?), too bad. You pay everything billed. Period. She said the only plus of the Easy Pass is that you can dispute charges at any time rather than being time period constrained.

    Technology is the BEST! It makes everything possible! Here, let me give you my personal health information!!

    I have 2 anecdotes.

    Last thursday was 70s and sunny here, unusual for March. I met my daughter and 2-year old granddaughter at the playground here in town. One of the mothers would not allow her children inside the play area because [gasp!] some of the children and mothers in the play area didn’t have a mask on (yeah, we were guilty parties). Outside. Nice weather. With the mothers in the play area being considerate and making sure their children waited their turn and didn’t crowd other children. All very sad.

    Yesterday was at a family get together with 6 adults in attendance. Three had gotten the moderna or phizer vaccine. Two I’m not sure about status (maybe they got vaccinated but didn’t want to admit it – these were my two adult children and I’ve perhaps been a bit vocal about these vaccines). One person definitely didn’t get the vaccine and, when asked, said she would never get one. Guess who? The non-star-bellied Sneetch. 😉

    For people on here who have gotten the vaccine, can you help me understand why you did? I’m being serious in asking this question. I want to understand the other side of this debate. From my perspective the vaccine doesn’t keep you from getting infected. Doesn’t keep you from spreading infection. The mid- to long-term outcomes are completely unknown and cannot be known at this time (and the short-term outcomes can be horrific). Why did you decide to get this shot?

    (Because “Jeremiah” sounds kind of like your name)

    Our owners in “the big exclusive club, and we’re not in it” are trying very hard to deal with an unfortunate threat to the global economy, our life support system, which is kind of like keeping the Texas power grid from crashing last month. A few had to sort of be sacrificed to save the rest.

    We should try to be more understanding.

    We are using up all of the fuel and ore resources that the economy needs to support us, and we need to cut down and cut back something like 90%, to go “carbon neutral”, because carbon sources are running out, and toxic byproducts are running out.

    To save the economy, our life support system, 90% of us should make the sacrifice of shortening our days. We can do this knowingly, or in a series of steps that lead to the same outcome, without being burdened by the knowledge of what is coming. Remember how the autistic girl designed a more humane and efficient slaughterhouse assembly line for cattle?

    Just don’t ask questions that you don’t really want to know the answers to, OK?

    This past year is what something like 5% voluntary reduction in hydrocarbon production looks like with a stable population.
    This is very difficult, and if you cannot present a workable solution, then you have no moral basis to complain about those in responsible positions doing the best that they can for all of us.

    As for me, I’m trying to deal with this looming downturn in energy and stuff by being a small, but engaged part of a much larger, adaptive self-organizing-system. I think we might have even bigger problems to deal with than running out of oil and copper. Maybe we don’t, but just because I, personally, can’t see how to do this, does not mean that it won’t get done. We are the species that bounced back from the Black Death and The Little Ice Age, to put Neil Armstrong on the moon mere centuries later. Some of us grow vegetable gardens. We need to trust in the process and shuck the outdated system, which is collapsing.

    That’s my argument for not-going-along.
    You are welcome to adopt the same argument. It’s open source.

    @zerosum: I get it – your dna dies with you. 🙂 But you could have died or had one of the seriously detrimental outcomes others are experiencing from these vaccines; an outcome that ruined quality of life for the time you have left.

    This reminds me of being a kid and having my parents ask, “If your friends all jump off a cliff, are you going to do it, too?”

    Maybe @cloudhidden is right. Maybe the hype and fear and pressure are too much?

    To the best of my knowledge most of Canada’s vaccine supply, ordered by Trudeau, are in a shipping container named “Blame”, on a container ship stuck in the Suez Canal. Right now Justin is blaming the PM who replaced his father! Trudeau is playing the vaccine blame game so ineptly his reward will be to get re-elected!

    If they don’t get the Ever Given unstuck tonight with a full moon, it will be because they forgot to bring a wolf to howl at the full moon. This falls under laws propagated by Dr. Murphy!

    As one of those ex-mining arm chair quarterbacks, who knows n’thing about moving big things, so far they have wasted almost a week trying to undo Dr. Murphy’s splendid handy work on the Ever Given in the Suez Canal.

    What is the one thing they have in unlimited quantities in Egypt? Why yes, sand!

    So with that much available sand, you simply build an artifical lake around the stuck ship! You build 2 causeways with sand across the width of the canal, one on each side of the ship. Then you build up sand banks along the canal shoreline between the 2 causeways. Then you pump water into the artifical lake until the ship re-floats. Then you use the sand dredgers to remove the sand in the canal.

    By now they could have already done this. Can’t be done hat quickly you say? It only took the Israelis 1 day, in the middle of a war, to build a causeway across the Suez Canal 50 years ago!

    The idea of the current Titans of power culling the population for ecological reasons has entered my mind and seems to be a ecologically sound solution but I have not fully considered this conclusion as our possible current reality. Maybe it is. Maybe if enough of us are gotten rid of the rich survive as do some of the population and the ecological issues are solved but I don’t see it playing out this way. If the population is faced with this reality and if it is real I feel the population will act out in a way that will destroy any of these ecological goals and those currently in control.
