The Covid-19 pandemic has been a bureaucrat's wet dream

Regulations to issue. Guidances to promulgate. Manuals to draft. Conduct to control. Codes to enforce. Forms to sign. Committees to organize. Mandates to decree. Expectations to lower. Businesses to stifle. Jobs to kill. Fear to spread. Bureaucrats are having a field day, busily molding directives out of piles of nonsense, as never before. Whoever in... Read more »

You've been unmasked in Illinois, but not the children. What the hell?

Illinois, at last, is emerging from unwarranted COVID-19 restraints, but kids still may be stuck wearing masks. Take that stupid mask off our children. Under Gov. J.B. Pritzker, masks will not be required for vaccinated people, except when federal, state or local law requires one, like on public transportation. Swell. It’s only months late. But... Read more »

Wait, Hydroxychloroquine may have saved some lives?

The death of journalism VI A new study hasn’t been peer reviewed yet, but it opens the door to a serious discussion that a form of the oft-ridiculed Hydroxychloroquine may have increased the survival rate of intubated COVID-19 patients by more than 100 percent. A synopsis of the study, “Observational Study on 255 Mechanically Ventilated... Read more »

My return trip to Illinois

Nothing much has changed: Same old corruption and incompetence. Add a heavy dose of fear. Close to two years ago, Barb and I moved to Florida and away from the state of disaster called Illinois. Recently, we returned for a visit. It was great to be back with and welcomed by family and friends, reliving... Read more »

Democrats don't give a damn about babies after they're born

Pro-life advocates, we’re often instructed by pro-abortion backers, don’t give a damn about children after they’re born, as if the pro-life side is so cruel and evil that they’d let children suffer once they’re delivered. Of course it’s nonsense. Compare, for example, how many hospitals, social services and other humanitarian causes that the pro-life Catholic... Read more »

Rescue children from mask hell.

The science has become so persuasive that children don’t need to suffer by breathing through a mask that making them do so can only be regarded as child abuse. You can help free them from this hell by backing legislation that would prevent misguided or power hungry educators from torturing children. Go here to sign... Read more »

But will retailers and others still require us to wear indoor masks?

Walmart, Costco and a few others are dropping the mandate, but what about the many others? Churches, doctors offices, big box stores, pharmacies, schools and universities, sports stadiums, theaters, post offices, government buildings and more independent and private retailers still are requiring masks be worn inside. Two shoppers in face masks head into Costco as... Read more »

How involved was Fauci in the origination of the novel virus that caused COVID-19?

Top-notch investigative journalism details his link to the Wuhan lab that probably created the virus. According to a Wall Street Journal report: Before Covid-19 ravaged the world, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases funded coronavirus research that included work at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology. The idea was to study the ability... Read more »

Finally! Why science took so long to accurately explain how COVID-19 spreads.

This New York Times article shows how the W.H.O., the CDC and other scientists took so long to get it right. The first article written by a scientist that a layman can understand without any political undertones. Kudos go to Dr. Zeynep Tufekciz, a contributing New York Times opinion writer for revealing the snafus about how... Read more »

Take Mary Schmich's quiz: Are you ready to return to normal?

I took it and got a perfect score. I returned to normal long ago. This will sound like more crowing about the open-life in Florida, but thanks to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ realistic, science-based approach to fighting COVID-19 it’s real. These are the questions in her quiz that I answered “already done it”: Eat indoors at... Read more »
