Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I keep thinking. . . What sense does it make to turn every hospital and clinic into a center of contagion and, in the process, jeopardize the health and/or lives of people who need medical treatment for conditions other than CoVid-19? I previously related how an immune compromised friend with a surg...

What makes some microbes cause transient sickness while others become a permanent part of our bodily ecology?

I've been pondering this question since long before the CoVid-19 thing arose. But now I'm all the more curious. To the best of my understanding, some microbes to which we are exposed take up residence in our bodies for only a short time. They're either killed off by our immune systems or eradicated ...

Re: Did Harry Browne have it wrong?

When did Harry make this comment? Was it before or after the western technocratic elite took over that country? Was Harry a libertarian of the Posner type, the latter of which might well conclude that five-year-olds fabricating $175 Nikes for $0.50 an day is an example of the free market functioning...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

The debate about masks seems so ridiculous. . . I frequently come into contact with rodent droppings in the barn and chicken coop. When cleaning, I ALWAYS wear a mask, which has been recommended since the dawn of time for protection against hantavirus. I see absolutely no reason why the same strateg...

Admin - Sending Private Messages

I have two private messages from this morning sitting in my "out box." It does not appear that they have been sent. How do I get them out of my "out box" and sent? Thanks much!

Re: Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories

People want to know: just how bad is the COVID-19 virus and is fighting it worth the destruction of the world’s economic and financial system while disrupting the lives of hundreds of millions of people? The story behind the story will make it clear that things are seldom as they seem. In short and...

Re: Blueprint for reopening the country for business

Conspicuously absent from this comprehensive going-forward plan is any mention of backtracking on the nearly universally-accepted U.N. goals for "sustainable development," a major feature of which is "density, density, density." Land use policies in nearly every county in the country now incorporate...
