GOP Representative Prescribed Ivermectin For COVID, Griped That Pharmacists Wouldn’t Fill It

And whodunit?

Yep you guessed right! Asshole Andy Harris!

Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), who is also an anesthesiologist, says that he has prescribed ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug, to treat COVID-19, even though it has not been approved for use in COVID cases.

“I wrote a prescription for ivermectin, I guess it’s now three weeks ago, four weeks ago, and yeah, couldn’t find a pharmacy to fill it,” the Republican said. “It’s gotten bad. . . . The pharmacists are just refusing to fill it.”

Ok so what’s this commotion about the the $600 threshold with the IRS that I keep seeing on my Facebook feed and right wing nuts griping about it? Everything I see about it on Twitter is from right-wing Twitter accounts so I’m left wondering where I can get information on this issue which has them up in arms.

That’s part of a pharmacist’s job. When a doctor screws up and writes a prescription that is dangerous to the patient, they’re supposed to stand in the way. He’s right that’s it’s gotten bad. Crank doctors are prescribing crank COVID treatments.

While we are on this subject: This paper published last month in nature is freaking amazing. Multidiscipline examination of Tall el-Hammam in the Lower Jordan valley which apparently incurred a large bolide impact around 1650 BCE equal to approximately an 8 megaton nuclear warhead.

The paper is lengthy and somewhat technical at points, but is still approachable for most laypersons and utterly fascinating (and horrific at points).

All 8000+ people in the city died within moments as ground temperature approached 2000 degrees centigrade and the shock wave disarticulated their remains. Nearby Jericho also sustained heavy damage.

That’s just silly. The wealthy are not moving money around in 600 dollar increments, and if they did, they’d need 100s of those transactions to make a difference, and that would trigger a suspicious activity report anyway.

Another annoying thing about rules like this is that they’re never indexed to inflation, so in 20 years that amount will be the equivalent of like 200 dollars today.

On the eve of a planned employee walkout at the streaming giant — organized by trans and LGBTQ+ staffers, content creators and allies — Sarandos addressed numerous points related to recent jokes from Chappelle that have incensed the trans community and been labeled as harmful.

The events around “The Closer” have represented a rare blunder for Sarandos and Netflix, whose deep pockets and warm relationships with talent have been transformative for the global entertainment sector for close to a decade. In our conversation, he admits up front that he “screwed up” in the handling of employee concerns, and talks more specifically about what the company does and does not consider hate speech.

Do you have any regrets about how this process was handled, especially in your internal communication with employees?

Ted Sarandos: Obviously, I screwed up that internal communication. I did that, and I screwed it up in two ways. First and foremost, I should have led with a lot more humanity. Meaning, I had a group of employees who were definitely feeling pain and hurt from a decision we made. And I think that needs to be acknowledged up front before you get into the nuts and bolts of anything. I didn’t do that. That was uncharacteristic for me, and it was moving fast and we were trying to answer some really specific questions that were floating. We landed with some things that were much more blanket and matter-of-fact that are not at all accurate.

And the walls came tumbling down.

The mud brick walls at Tall el-Hammam were mostly shattered, as was the palace and other structures. Clay tiles show melting and glass formation with air bubbles preserved, and shocked quartz (associated with bolide impacts and nuclear ground bursts) is prevalent throughout the destruction layer. Skeletal remains show evidence of *extreme* heat and disarticulation. Some leg joints show hyper lengthening as joints were *pulled* apart.

Jericho, about 22km distant was also heavily damaged, although not completely destroyed.

No weapons have been found in the destruction layer except some semi melted swords likely carried by sentries. No sling stones or other detritus always found at Bronze Age battle sites,.

We present evidence that in ~ 1650 BCE (~ 3600 years ago), a cosmic airburst destroyed Tall el-Hammam, a Middle-Bronze-Age city in the southern Jordan Valley northeast of the Dead Sea. The proposed airburst was larger than the 1908 explosion over Tunguska, Russia, where a ~ 50-m-wide bolide detonated with ~ 1000× more energy than the Hiroshima atomic bomb. A city-wide ~ 1.5-m-thick carbon-and-ash-rich destruction layer contains peak concentrations of shocked quartz (~ 5-10 GPa); melted pottery and mudbricks; diamond-like carbon; soot; Fe- and Si-rich spherules; CaCO3 spherules from melted plaster; and melted platinum, iridium, nickel, gold, silver, zircon, chromite, and quartz. Heating experiments indicate temperatures exceeded 2000 °C. Amid city-side devastation, the airburst demolished 12+ m of the 4-to-5-story palace complex and the massive 4-m-thick mudbrick rampart, while causing extreme disarticulation and skeletal fragmentation in nearby humans.

Like, just because I’m a “LIB!” doesn’t mean that when I say that you shouldn’t go above 6 A/mm2 on power wiring that I’m wrong.
And just because I’m a “LIB!” and you don’t understand how washing and disinfecting your hands helps against a air- or aerosol-borne disease doesn’t mean I’m wrong.
And that list just goes on and on and on.
And in each case, it has consequences. In the wiring case, you risk an electrical fire. In the washing/disinfecting hands case, you risk getting a disease. And that regardless of your political opinion.

Democrats need to start laying the groundwork now for 2024, because GQP legislatures in states like Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania will set aside the popular vote based on the Big Lie, and appoint GQP electors to make Trump dictator. Marc Elias will be fighting in the courts, but we also need a nationwide general strike to shut the country down while the people take to the streets to make it clear we won’t allow the country to become a fascist dictatorship without a fight.

re: #40 Scottish Dragon

Yeah I was playing just a little bit on that. :)

On a more serious note: I had seen the report on the Tall El-Hamman “Bolide Theory” reprinted elsewhere on the webz, and while it is certainly a fascinating hypothesis, “hypothesis” is all it really is at the moment: see HERE for a bit-more-skeptical analysis.

Of course, to me, the main problem is that the excavations at Tall El-Hammam and the analysis of the purported “airburst” destruction has been conducted by a team from some unaccredited low-end fundamentalist bible college out of Albuquerque; and that said institution is basically locked into to the usual fundivangelical “inerrancy” and “literalism” stuff. To me that’s going to shade their judgements a bit (and their absolutist pronouncements about the “Tall El-Hammam Bolide” strike me as being mucho unscientific) - and reading the critique I linked above, I noticed that their main reaction to the criticisms of their theory was an angry/whiny screed about being raked for their “faith”: which doesn’t lead me to give them all that much credibility.
TBF, the bolide theory might very well turn out to be valid: it’s just that this case is (IMO) very much a “needs more work” one.

Great Grandpa Bacon was a member of the IWW. He advocated a nationwide general strike to shut the whole country down until the rich buckled.

As far as I can tell, the evidence is just about airtight. Shocked quartz is game, set and match, and I looked at the pictures (I’ve had optical mineralogy). You get that by 2 means: nukes or bolides. (Fulgurites and fault related strain possibilities were discussed and dismissed)

Reminds me of an old joke: There was a rich businessman who frequently went to the golf course with his pastor to talk about things. The man was a very bad golfer, and was very vocal about his shortcomings. With each sliced drive, hit bunker, or ball in the water, he would exclaim, loudly: “FUCK, I missed!” The pastor started by chiding him gently, but as the games went on, he took a stern tone, saying, “Now, Bob, careful with your language, or the Lord might strike you down!”

One week, they were out golfing together, and as they approached the green, Bob lobbed a ball out of a sand trap over the green and into a water hazard. Bob looked up to the sky, Caddy Shack style, and screamed out, “FUCK, I MISSED!” Just then, a bolt from the blue came sizzling out of the sky and struck the pastor dead. As Bob turned in shock and horror, trembling with fear, a loud voice boomed from the heavens: “Fuck, I missed!”

re: #22 Scottish Dragon

The mud brick walls at Tall el-Hammam were mostly shattered, as was the palace and other structures. Clay tiles show melting and glass formation with air bubbles preserved, and shocked quartz (associated with bolide impacts and nuclear ground bursts) is prevalent throughout the destruction layer. Skeletal remains show evidence of *extreme* heat and disarticulation. Some leg joints show hyper lengthening as joints were *pulled* apart.

Jericho, about 22km distant was also heavily damaged, although not completely destroyed.

No weapons have been found in the destruction layer except some semi melted swords likely carried by sentries. No sling stones or other detritus always found at Bronze Age battle sites,.

OK then: Wikipedia had the guy from Trinity Southwest as the lead on the dig: so maybe the organization of the project isn’t that simple. I wouldn’t be surprised

And you may be quite right about the shocked quartz and the rest: as I said, the evidence (at least as far as my untutored eye can tell) is not conclusive one way or another. But what triggers my suspicions - at least for now - is that whoever is managing the project has made public announcements trumpeting the “facts” of the bolide hypothesis as a given - several “givens” AFAICT -, and that, to me, is *unscientific* - so more (properly peer-reviewed) research needed.

okay, i’m curious. what causes the shocked quartz that immediately limits to basically two things? Is it just that it _has_ to be a short, high-heat event causing something in the quartz to change, or some kind of pressure wave that is so large it changes the nature of the crystal, and hence, only can happen due to two possibilities?

My Catholic mom saved bacon grease in a can on the stove and used it to fry fish on Friday.

My mom and gramma were the same way. Cooking up a pound of bacon on a Sunday morning was not uncommon. Grease/fat into a jar and any uneaten bacon tossed back into the pan and cooked until crispy, the broken up into bits for salads and other things.

Yes — on one hand, they will have no influence in the GOP but on the other hand they will be able to accumulate wealth without any pushback from their new associates and isn’t that what guides them these days?

As has been pointed out before both Manchin and Sinema would be committing political career suicide by switching parties. Once their current term runs out they would lose the GOP primary to someone running at them from the right. And they can’t run and win in the GOP as newbie fascists since their opponents would portray them as johnny-come-lately opportunists trying to chase the Trump bandwagon. And they’d get no support from the Democrats.

Plus, as also has already been shown, expecting anything in exchange for switching from McConnell (or Trump) would also be folly since they don’t stick to deals once it is no longer to their advantage to do so.

re: #202 sagehen

Were their boats destroyed? Odd they didn’t follow the coastline south a ways….

I read a book a long time back about colonising during the Medieval period and how hard it was, even with support from the homeland. Exploring the wilderness over the horizon wasn’t what the shoreline colonists in Newfoundland were interested in, they were fishing and hunting and growing crops to feed themselves and their families and that took up most of their time and effort. Sending ships with valuable crewmen off to explore with only a slight chance of them coming back was reckless at best, the crops needed tending and fish caught and dried for winter. For isolated colonists with little or no trade with home survival trumped exploration.

Better ships and maps and navigation aids led to journeys to far-off lands but always with the intention to return — the voyages of Columbus and de Gama and Magellan were five hundred years after the Viking settlers, as far back in time as the European voyagers are to us today. The colonies they established took root but they were always in contact with the nations that sent them out and remained under their political control. This wasn’t the case (as far as we can tell from the sparse historical record) for the Newfoundland colonisers.
