California man charged with attacking police with a pole and chemicals during Capitol attack

This thug assaulted people during the Koreatown and Downtown LA Proud Boy riots and the fucking LAPD let him assault people.

Oh the Beverly Hills Cops also gave this thug a pass.

I would hope he and his family have a plan in place before they ever agreed to do this. Maybe NBC had to help with the plan for them to agree to it as well. I pray that’s the case. There have to be cops that have his back too. That day was mostly traumatic for the vast majority of cops there in the middle of the mess, I would think there has to be a fair number of local cops that are less than thrilled with this bullshit coming from right wing bullies and assholes. I know there’s plenty of LEOs who are also wingnutty assholes, but shared intense experiences tend to unite people. I am hoping on the good guy winning this one. (Edited to change tv network, duh)

It’s not even important yet. 14 out of 15 could have been Coke rather than Pepsi drinkers too. There needs to be a real big study on this, and they need to not fucking blab it out loud ahead of time or the terminal derpies patients will run out and buy up all that too after they pickup horse de-wormer.

There was a time when Chinese doctors said they were testing famotidine against COVID and because of that I had to go without GERD medication for like 2 months in 2020 because every swinging dick ran out and bought it, and at the same time Zantac was recalled by the FDA, so everyone that normally took it was trying to get famotidine/pepcid or other alternatives as well as well.

It’s not a coincidence that the window she was trying to get through was an access point for Pelosi and others. Or so they thought.

I’ve been quiet today, watching unfolding events.

re: #38 Eric The Fruit Bat

I did a quick check the other day into applicable laws (federal and district) regarding murder, manslaughter, and D.C.’s laws regarding self-defense. And there’s virtually no angle for a prosecutor to come at this case that would lead to anything but either an acquittal or mistrial in a criminal court.

The applicable federal law would require a prosecutor to show that Lt. Byrd not only knew his actions were wrong, but also show that he had willful intent (i.e. he wanted her dead). And they couldn’t just point to her being dead to get there, they’d have to show beyond reasonable doubt that he knew she was unarmed and took the shot with the willful intent to kill her.

Aside from that, D.C. laws on murder and manslaughter are pretty much preempted by its laws regarding self-defense, which state that so long as his intent was to protect others in the building from death or severe bodily harm then he was acting in self-defense. Despite what one guy I spoke with on the subject said, he had no duty to retreat from that barricade the moment it was breached.

People on the far right have known his identity for a while, he pulled the trigger on his service weapon seven and a half months ago. I’m sure he’s aware enough of his safety to be prepared for things. He’s armed. He’s got other cops looking out for him. Don’t be so damn cynical. And if some whackjob finds him and slits his throat in front of his family or whatever, you can come back to this post and I’ll eat crow.

Wingnut concentration camps, 1969. All seems very familiar.

In fact, a lot of favorite RW CTs are decades old. They just get dusted off and polished up for a new crop of marks every so often. The NRA’s most basic assumption, for example, is that gun control is a subterfuge for disarming people so they cannot resist the tyrannical government that liberals plan to set up. This dates to the 1960s and coincides with the backlash against the civil rights movement. When it first appeared, the NRA leadership of the time dismissed it as paranoid nonsense. This set off a power struggle within the organization that the nuts won in 1977. They have been in charge ever since.

A large portion of the CT’s have common base narratives which can be traced back centuries, at least. Like, change the name, race, nationality, ethnicity, or religion of the bogeymen and scapegoats.
Play the synonym game with names and slogans (e.g. cultural bolshevik becomes Cultural Marxist, internationalist becomes globalist and goes back to internationalist again).
Anglify names and slogans from other languages to make them seem less menacing (cf. Badger Meadows, Birch Meadows, Beechwood Walley (or my favorite, the short-lived “Lying Press”))*.

Once you learn to identify the base narratives, how long-lived and how long people have gone for them hook, line and sinker is really sickening…

The vaccine is the low cost bulk medication so therefore the expensive monoclonal antibodies after infection is the correct path.

Yes, and given the volumes Pfizer/BioNTech, J&J/Janssen, Moderna et al. have pumped out, they will soon have recovered enough for the prices to drop once demand lets up a bit.

It’s hard to show the scale of the California fires without a huge map, so here’s a huge map.

The Caldor fire is burning towards Wright’s Lake. It is my favorite campground. Back in the early 80s it burned up the side of the mountain but didn’t reach the lake. I went camping up there during the fire, drove through smoldering forest, everything shades of gray. I’m running out of campgrounds that I love that haven’t been burned out.

A large portion of Qanon conspiracies are straight out of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Just with a fresh coat of bullshit.

And those date back to the Middle Ages…in Bacharach there is a ruined chapel that was dedicated to St. Werner (although never officially recognized as a saint by the Vatican) who was supposedly the victim of a “ritual murder” by the Jews.

hi

North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson (R) released final reports from a task force he formed to investigate the “indoctrination” of children in state public schools. The problem is, many of the issues Robinson claims he’s heard about endlessly weren’t in the report.

Robinson specifically used a trans-inclusive book as an example in his report that teachers have been supposedly “abusing” children with. When a Democrat [sic] state representative questioned him about the report and said it seemed to be “Fox News-driven,” Robinson got so offended that he walked out the room.

Robinson is known for his anti-LGBTQ posts on Facebook. He has previously proclaimed that being gay is a step before pedophilia, that Michelle Obama is secretly a trans woman, and referred to trans-affirming people as “devil worshipping child molesters.” He also condemned gay people as an “abominable sin” in response to the 2016 Pulse massacre.

Robinson’s task force, the “Indoctrination in North Carolina Public Education Report,” took information reported by concerned parents and concluded that 13 specific concepts should not be “promoted” in schools. Robinson joined state Republicans as they held a Senate Education Committee meeting with public comment and media present to unveil the report.

Like, when the location is at “code red” because of events happening (which the Capitol more than likely was because the breach was long before), if you threaten a principal, you will get shot, even if you’re unarmed. Period. Full Stop. Not Negotiable.

Ugh…middle of the night complainy-time again. In addition to the emotional drain of checking dad into assisted living yesterday, I reinjured my almost recovered left foot - was completely swollen by the end of the day and I could barely limp a few steps without wincing in pain. Managed to grab a cheeseburger to go from the cafe downstairs and get back to my room where I slathered it(foot, not burger) with arnica cream (holistic bullshit stuff my neighbor gave me for bursitis about 8 months ago but it fucking works - said it in a Roy Kent from Ted Lasso voice) a few times before falling asleep from exhaustion before 9pm. Just as I’m getting ready to sleep my fitbit on my wrist reminded me I was close to my daily goal…12,000 steps. No wonder it hurt so bad. 12K steps in and out of 100 degree heat. Idiot.

Well, swelling is greatly reduced but pain is still there - woke me up - went to take a squirt and was able to make that journey relatively easily, so there’s hope for me to make it from National returns to the terminal and from the terminal to my car tomorrow.

Somewhere around 20 is what I think is Newsmax or OAN. Crappy red,white &blue colors with a chyron reading “MSNBC and Biden narrative on Afghan Evacuation doesn’t age well.” or something to that effect. Doesn’t age well? Is that how they celebrate 13 US troops getting killed. Those evil fuckers.

From the previous thread:

re: #13 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

NYT: How Government Decisions Left Tennessee Exposed to Deadly Flooding

If all you read is the headline you’d think it was that satanic gubmint who are killing Tennesseans.

But if one reads the article:

The headline **ought** to be: “Locals who willfully spurned government officials now paying the price in floods”.

But no, that would have been too direct to the point and put the blame where it rightly belongs.

When I was on my village board, the offer was made to my village to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program, due to the North Platte River. The only actual piece of the village limit within the flood zone is the sewage lagoon, which is already insured.

Parts of municipalities cannot be in the insurance program; all of our town would have to be (and the rest is not subject to flooding).

It’s a bit more complicated than “no building codes.” My village has building codes.

It also requires flood insurance on all real property on existing lines of credit as well as future lines.

Finally you have to have code enforcement which meets federal standards (such as a permanent staff of code enforcers).

When the program is underfunded, it does not pay claims. That wasn’t a problem until Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, which depleted the trust for the NFIP. Claims against the insurance had reached $25billion in unpaid claims by 2017, when Congress put $16billion in the fund to pay off some claims. As of now, the debt is nearly $21billion in unpaid claims.

FEMA defines a floodplain as an area which has a 1% chance per year of a base flood. Thus in common usage, a base flood is a 100-year flood.

The program permits modifications to bridges, levees, culverts, and such within the base flood area, but not any other public or private structure (such as a road).

The program is rather complicated in all the compliance regulations.

According to FEMA, a survey of our village indicated our sewage lagoon is within the base flood area. The rest of the village is over a mile from the North Platte River and about sixty feet above the river on the sideslope of the Sandhills. If flood waters got this far and this high, we have bigger problems than a 100-year flood.

“Building codes” in this context refers to the following:

a) Restricting development (whether the particular area within a municipality is subject to floods or not)

b) It is criticised for driving people least able to afford flood damage (the poor) into the base flood area, since obtaining mandatory flood insurance is only required for securing a mortgage. Thus wealthy developers who don’t need mortgages build their low income housing in those areas. If the area floods, the owner gets disaster aid and the renters get little other than emergency relief. This is a form of adverse selection, actually increasing density in urban flood plain areas.

c) USGS has noted many of the original flood plain maps drawn up when the programme was conceived are now out of date due to urban growth. Areas which were undeveloped or lightly developed are now paved over, creating man-made rivers which channel water into other areas, and areas which do not allow water to sink into the ground. To correct those out-of-date maps, municipalities have to do their own surveys at their own expense, then submit the surveys to FEMA to update their flood maps. (The alternative would be another nationwide survey, costing metric fuquetonnes of money and taking years.)

d) President Obama issued an executive order to survey areas at the federal government’s expense in areas likely to be affected by sea level rise, which was not part of either the original survey or flood insurance programme. That order was revoked by President Trump and those surveys have stopped.

RT is the successor to Radio Moscow, the Soviet Union’s official shortwave broadcaster. RT is currently Russia’s state broadcaster.

RT English/French/German/Spanish/whatever’s job is to stir shit up in the target countries however they can, to weaken the West. Because what’s bad for the West is good for Russia: that’s the depth of thought involved. They will try to hook in new users with targeted clickbait, and get them on the program. So, now it’s time to stir up xenophobia against generic Muslims in Western countries.

RT has been fined several times by UK Ofcom (the regulator), to great hysterics about Western hypocrisy and censorship. While Russia is killing off all remains of independent journalism and throwing journalists in prison, but anyways.

This isn’t without its domestic problems. The Russian government, and therefore the Russian mass media, have been extremely pro-vax domestically, but anti-vax internationally to hurt the West. However, Russians can certainly get to foreign reporting one way or another, and the anti-vax foreign propaganda has blown back and exacerbated the existing paranoid/purity/home remedy tendencies of the Russian population, worsening the massive anti-vax crisis at home.

They sometimes can’t read the room, either. Last week RT started making fun of Americans eating horse dewormer for COVID, which I guess they forgot is their target audience in the US. So much cursing and vows never to read it again.

The Russian government considers RT and other state media to be weapons against their enemies. They assume the same thing for foreign media, which is partly why they’re hysterical about “foreign agents.” They have literally said that they wouldn’t allow foreign tanks to roll into Russia, so why foreign media?

My understanding is that it’s not a legal problem, it’s a problem with the Youtube/Facebook/whatever copyright enforcement algorithm that will almost immediately yank the video. You can petition to get it reinstated, but that takes months, and of course by then it’s pretty much useless.

A tennis instructor lost his job after he stood up at a school board meeting and did the Nazi salute while shouting “Heil Hitler.”

Paul Marcum worked at the Sports Club of West Bloomfield near Detroit and he attended a chaotic meeting of the Birmingham Board of Education last Wednesday.

People at the meeting were discussing a mask mandate for the school district, and a Jewish woman and a Black woman spoke in favor of the mandate. That’s when witnesses say Marcum stood up and held his arm out and repeated “Heil Hitler.” It is not clear if he meant to support Nazism or liken the mask mandate to Nazism.

“Birmingham Public Schools emphatically denounces and will not tolerate any act of racism, disrespect, violence, and/or inequitable treatment of any person, including actions and statements made at Board of Education meetings,” Superintendent Embekka Roberson said in a letter to parents. “Last night’s meeting did not consistently display the behaviors that we expect from our students and community.”

The Nebraska Sandhills Tropical Weather Update

Disturbance 1: A tropical wave 650 miles east of Bermuda has a 60% chance of developing into a tropical depression in the next five days. The system is currently moving east toward Europe and North Africa, but is a long way away.

Disturbance 2: A tropical wave midway between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antillies has an 80% chance of developing into a tropical depression in the next five days. It is expected to turn north before reaching the islands.

Tropical Storm Ida: A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the Cayman Islands, which the storm has just passed over. A warning is also in effect for the western provinces of Cuba as well as the Isle of Youth.

A hurricane watch extends from the Texas/Louisiana border to Mobile Bay, Ala., including the inland lakes near the coast of Louisiana. A tropical storm watch extends to the Florida border from there. A storm surge watch is in place from the Texas/Louisiana border to the Alabama/Florida border.

The experimental peak storm surge map shows dangerous heights of storm surge along a lengthy portion of the northern Gulf Coast. The damage will be worse if the storm arrives near high tide.

From Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge to Morgan City including Vermilion Bay: 4-7 feet
From Morgan City to Ocean Springs, Mississippi: 7-11 feet
From Ocean Springs to the state line with Alabama: 4-7 feet
The entire coast of Alabama including Mobile Bay: 3-5 feet
Lake Pontchartrain: 3-5 feet
Lake Maurepas: 2-4 feet

Ida is expected to be a major hurricane before making landfall in Louisiana in the afternoon on Sunday. If you live in Louisiana or areas adjacent to the watch areas, now is the time to rush your hurricane plans to completion, and evacuate before the roads become clogged if you are able. Police will likely be unable to assist you during the height of the storm, especially during high storm surges. Afterward, roads and bridges may be washed out.

If you are planning to stay in a hurricane shelter, you should consider the possible crowding which would interfere with keeping safe from Covid-19 and have a strategy for that.

After Ida makes landfall, the hurricane is expected to press rapidly inland into central and northern Mississippi as it weakens, then into central Tennessee as a tropical depression.

I’ve seen that time and again in fanatic/fundamentalist circles. Their belief that something is a certain way is so strong, that they have little to no inhibitions left to resist the temptation to, instead of citing real evidence, making up evidence themselves.
Their reasoning is that “everyone knows that {$outgroup} is guilty of {$conspiracy}, the evidence is there, I’m just ‘copying’ it.” or something along those lines of thinking.
Except that doing so is deeply immoral, even when your target is guilty, and much more so if the target is innocent.
It’s a textbook example of how a delusion or psychosis can affect your value systems to such as extent as to rendering them ineffective.
Couple this the overestimation of the ego or ingroup, and underestimation of others or the outrgoup(s) in individual and collective/group narcissism, you get these painfully obvious forgeries that some of these people try to get away with.
They know it’s fake, people like them know its fake, but they deem everyone except their clique as too stupid to catch on to it…

re the bombing, there are two groups of people

- the professionals in the white house and admin who knew back in february (maybe before) that something like this could happen and what it would mean. that with reduced and concentrated forces, there wasn’t much they could do to prevent it. And they moved forward anyway.

- those who wished, hoped, and prayed it would happen for their own perceived political benefit. they had their tweets, posts, speeches written weeks ago. they just filled in the dates and numbers.

Employing a variant of the Prosecutor’s Fallacy: The idea that the importance of a match in evidence (especially DNA) is inflated over its actual importance.

In the case of your wingnut in the wild (Big Pharma makes more money on long-term treatments than prevention), the CT implies that “Big Pharma” is then driven to drive people to long-term treatments over cures or vaccines (a common anti-medical position for virtually every chronic disease—I’ve heard it over my epilepsy meds before).

It also assumes that the importance of selling expensive cures outweighs less expensive vaccines. For that to work, you have to have enough people get sick and not die to use the expensive cure. If all your potential customers die, you didn’t sell them either one.

And another thing…I didn’t realize how many conservative “news” channels there are — and all in the lower numbers (teens and twenties). MSNBC is on 55. CNN is in the low 30s. What is it with hotel cable?

Somewhere around 20 is what I think is Newsmax or OAN. Crappy red,white &blue colors with a chyron reading “MSNBC and Biden narrative on Afghan Evacuation doesn’t age well.” or something to that effect. Doesn’t age well? Is that how they celebrate 13 US troops getting killed. Those evil fuckers.

When I picked up my mail yesterday, the screaming headline across the print edition of The Economist is “Biden’s Debacle” (with four photographs of the Afghans running near and climbing on the cargo aircraft at the airport).

I expect to read a bullshyte article when I open the magazine, after which I will probably write a blast-ex letter to the editor they likely won’t print (but you never know).

re: #152 Belafon

Just a thought, but what about inserting a characteristic sound of a musical piece or something else which is soundly in the public domain, making it a thing to play it when they begin playing copyrighted music. And making it a thing explaining that it’s specifically to flag a video as where a perpetrator attempts to use the copyright system to prevent upload, and that abuse of the system has a shorter route to law enforcement than “ordinary” copyright strikes?

Am I just too evil?

horse dewormers and hydrochoroquin

ok some people are just bugnuts
sure some still deny everything as they die in the icu bed

others when they get sick enough revert to ‘traditional’ - you know - proven effective medicine

what draws someone to eat horse dewormer

ok no reports of 5g chips maybe

it seems kind of like why all sorts of alternative medicine exists.
something about ‘the other’ makes it attractive
homeopathy, acupuncture, ‘natural’ cures (as if the compounds are somehow different if you extract it yourself from the plants)

even when in this case ivermectin paste clearly is not natural
- it has chemicals
- it’s man made
- it’s factory made
- it’s not ‘ancient’ or mysterious - just about 50 years old or so
- and the equine product has not been tested in people at all (until now)
etc

horse paste checks all the same ‘objections’ boxes they have for the covid vax

Poor children deserve the fate of humiliation and mockery.

When I went to school in rural Michigan, we used lunch tickets punched for the week. White tickets for full price, yellow tickets for reduced price, and blue tickets for free.

Everyone in line could see my blue ticket, and every day I went to lunch was harassment over being poor.

That is by design from conservatives.

A school lunch programme where they just feed everyone eliminates both the shaming of the poor, and the cost of administering a mean-test programme (but wasting money is what conservatives do, and to them it’s not a waste because they are enforcing a hierarchy where undeserving poor kids are humiliated; see also Newt Gingrich’s idea of making poor kids work in the cafeteria to earn their keep).

Ah, the old Andre Bauer (former Lt. Gov. of SC) stance:

In January 2010, Bauer compared public school children who receive free lunches to stray animals who should not be fed. “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals,” Bauer said during a town hall meeting. “You know why? Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t… think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.”

I’m watching everyone from Nate Silver (a math/sports guy who thinks he can weigh in on epidemeology) to other people who should know better post about a preprint study out of Israel that seems to indicate that you have better immunity if you get covid19 than if you’re vaccinated.

There’s a huge fucking caveat there. A percentage get long covid, with crippling disabilities like the inability to smell or walk distances. A percentage get hospitalized. A percentage of people who get covid19 naturally die.

Vaccinations pretty much prevent all of that, or greatly reduce the chances you’ll develop a debilitating case of covid. It limits sick time and the economic harms of coming down with covid, spreading it to family/friends, etc.

So yeah, covid naturally might confer higher antibody reaction, but the cost is deadly.

Perhaps they could hold concerts in places less travelled which don’t have such mandates.

So for example, they could throw a concert here at Cornhusker Stadium in Lincoln, or the Civic Center in Gering/Scottsbluff, and demand a vaccination card. (Pete Ricketts made a statement early on that Nebraska wouldn’t participate in any federal scheme, but neither he nor the Unicameral have prohibited private venues here from doing it.)

The idea of a small town like Scottsbluff doesn’t seem like much, but a major act would draw in people from all over this state plus Colorado, Wyoming, and South Dakota.

On one hand, he insists we leave Afghanistan. On the other, he wants us to keep Bagram. You can’t do both dumbass. That’s not how it works, and that wasn’t part of the deal Trump cut with Taliban while kneecapping Afghan govt. The govt collapsed because Trump negotiated with the Taliban and excluded the Afghan regime while forcing the regime to release thousands of Taliban, including guys who are now in charge.

I get the online version of The Economist and the UK Guardian. As for DeJoy the crook should be indicted for mail tampering and election interference. Friends are complaining that they put their recall ballot in the mail 10-12 days ago and it hasn’t been received by the County.

That’s why I put my ballot in the County collection box and got an e-mail and text message from the county that the ballot was received and counted last week.

‘Exhaustion,’ ‘frustration’: Why some vaccinated people are losing motivation to stay safe

“If other people aren’t going to put in the effort to end this pandemic, why am I putting my needs of… a good mental state (aside)… for others who just clearly don’t care,” Sowa adds.

Dr. David Rakofsky, a licensed clinical psychologist and president of Wellington Counseling Group, says he is seeing a wave of patients experiencing this attitude shift.

Several factors are driving the shift, he says, including vaccine overconfidence, responsibility fatigue and decision fatigue.

“Even I felt a sense of invincibility once I got the jab,” Rakofsky admits, but adds the vaccine can only do “what it’s supposed to do.” “It’s keeping us from the hospital, it’s keeping us from dying.”

He also sees a shift from believing individual factors create the outcome to believing the outcome is a result of external factors beyond their control.

“The feeling maybe for these young people (is) that this may be as far as we all get, and I’ve done what I can do. Now I roll the dice and the rest is outside of my direct influence,” he explains.

The frustration also has been illustrated as a group project, where everyone has to participate to get a good grade (have the pandemic end). But, if part of the group isn’t participating (the unvaccinated), the others (vaccinated) start to see their efforts as pointless.

“That’s all part of the same phenomenon… These were the things that were internal to my control that I was going to do… We were good soldiers, and now we’re left with a battalion of people that aren’t going to fight,” Rakofsky explains.

Sowa says it feels like “we had like hope dangling in front of us and now it’s being fully taken away,” making the year and a half of her safety efforts feel “pointless.”

“I’ve gotten the shot… I’ve been doing my part to end this pandemic, and I wasn’t supported by everyone else so what’s the point at this point?” she says, adding that she now only wears a mask where required and is less worried about big crowds.

Rakofsky explains this feeling of hopelessness can lead to mental health issues.

“When someone is given a task that they can achieve and despite their efforts, despite doing the things they’re supposed to, they do not achieve, a learned helplessness is what sets in, and that’s part of a kind of depression that can linger.”

So apparently, we’re reaching the point of “fuck it, we can’t beat the crazy people so we’re just going to join them”?

Thus far, Texas’ Office of the Chief Disciplinary Counsel has granted an investigatory hearing related to Powell’s bar license, set for November 4. There is no update related to the Michigan licenses at this time.

Judge Parker’s ruling will mean disciplinary boards in other states will also review the attorneys’ conduct.

re: #299 Rightwingconspirator

And why is ivermectin the drug of choice for the know nothing set? Because someone claims that they’ve done wonders to stop cases in India?

There’s a reason India might see benefits not available elsewhere: parasitic infections are a bigger risk there due to sanitary deficiencies than in places like the US. If you stop those other infections, your body has a chance against covid19. But when there’s no actual double blind tests to confirm, it’s all just supposition and non experts touting the latest junk science.

re: #286 No Malarkey!

Anyone who would choose to contract Covid to develop immunity to Covid is just plain nuts.

Antivaxxers hold “disease parties” to expose their kids to formerly common childhood illnesses. I have no questions about their (in)sanity.

re: #302 lawhawk

Part of this Venn diagram of stupidities is the idea that natural immunity is far stronger than vaccinated. Every single idea that supports the prevention or treatment of COVID is being exploited. Or described beyond all reason to support the anti-vaxx mindset.

I can almost understand chicken pox. The younger the kids get that, the less severe and it does help them build their immune system.

I did not get chicken pox until I was 10 or 11 and it was awful and did not get measles until I was 18 and it knocked me out for two weeks

There’s was an article about the aftermath of such a “CoViD” party early on the pandemic. If my memory serves me right, it resulted in at least one fatality.

I think your chicken pox preceded the vaccine. I don’t know about the measles. Immune systems are built more reliably with vaccines, but there was an error for a year or two in the measles vaccine.

Never had measles but did have chickenpox when I was six.

I had a mild case the first time then a worse case a year or so later.

And I have had several outbreaks of shingles, which is the adult form

Did not get it this summer as it was actually mild and rainy, but the past three summers I had outbreaks prompted by the heat waves when I simply could not sleep properly for weeks on end.

So far as I can tell, ISIS probably is an enemy of the Taliban. A civil war enemy. So the irony here is that they and our military/intel guys probably will find a way to cooperate on attacking those guys.

And right there is another powerful bargaining chip we have to ensure an evac of closer to everyone we want to when we best can. Blowing crap up is the one thing we are arguably good at over there.

Apparently, it’s too soon to say.

Bureau officials say it’s too soon to speculate on whether individual communities were undercounted. The full extent of whether the statistical agency missed certain populations, or overcounted others, won’t be known until early next year, when it releases results of a survey used to measure how good a job it did counting every U.S. resident.

I can’t. I got chicken pox at 16 and it was awful. Folks had to stay home. Lost wages. Why would anyone want to lose time at work to stay at home with a sick kid if you can avoid the kid getting sick altogether with a shot that is safe and effective? That’s insanity.

“india” helps with that far away/other/mysterious/ancient-ness aspect that promotes a lot of woo in the US

that distance puts it in the ‘unable to confirm’ but they’re saying its true category - even in the 21st century with the ‘net.

forget that ivermectin is only about 50 years old

Variolation” was the very early “vaccine”. But its price was immeasurably high by today’s standards. 1 or 2 percent of recipients died. Which at the time beat the heck out of a one-third mortality rate in the wild.

Never knew I needed one. I was vaccinated against measles before I started school. At that time though, there was no chickenpox vaccine (this was in the early to mid 1970s).

326
wrenchwench  Aug 27, 2021 • 9:55:21am

The protocol on the shingles shot was to wait until the patient is 60 years old, unless they get shingles before that, like I did. I’m an overachiever. I don’t know whether that has changed. I think the overachiever part has.

i got a tetanus this past wednesday
due to the drill through the finger on sunday
no reaction

i had no idea when my last tetanus was
the wound was clean
they didnt ask much medical history (urgent care)
i didn’t ask what was in the vial

modern medicine
howwzat work?

the needle was so small i didnt feel it at all. i give blood regularly, i know what a needle is.

i mentioned to the nurse i didnt believe there were say 15 million american men anti-vax because they were afraid of a needle like that

she said ‘you have no idea’ what we see here.

meanwhile finger is still swollen at the joint, the whole thing is still numb and i cant bend it properly (yet), but it’s probably easing up a tiny bit a day.

I saw a mention of a finger injury, and forgot to ask for details. Hands are so delicate! As are the complicated contraptions that operate them. Good that you took care to have it looked at.

A Texan who led anti-mask efforts and publicly opposed mandatory COVID-19 precautions is hospitalized with the coronavirus, and his pregnant wife says his chances of survival aren’t good.

Caleb Wallace is also a dad of three girls with another on the way, his wife Jessica said in a GoFundMe. Their baby is due Sept. 27, about two months after Caleb was hospitalized.

In what his wife described as a “heartbreaking update,” she shared Wednesday that her husband isn’t doing well.

“He’s not doing good,” she said in the public Facebook post. “It’s not looking in our favor, his lungs are stiff due to the fibrosis. They called and said they’ve run out of options for him and asked if I would consent to a do not resuscitate. And it would be up to us when to stop treatments.”

The post came three days after Jessica Wallace updated their GoFundMe followers. She said that while Wallace is “heavily sedated,” her family continues to FaceTime him nightly, praying their voices encourage him to continue his fight.
