Noping Out of the Vaccine Experiment

"I think Black Lives Matter was the stupidest name when the system's screwing everyone exactly the same." -Tom MacDonald, "Fake Woke" (Trigger warning: no foul language, sex or violence, but delicate listeners will their need smelling salts)

It doesn't look like the US is going get 70% of its population vaccinated. Vaccinations here in Indiana have been slowing down since April and at this rate, they'll all but stop in a month. At this writing, 41% of Hoosiers 12 and older are fully vaccinated for COVID. 

Why the hesitancy? For some black people, the Tuskeegee Experiment still raises suspicions about medical treatments. Candace Owens describes the infamous experiment:


The victims of the Tuskeegee Experiment aren't the only ones who were screwed over by the medical industry. Vegan doctors lie through their teeth (see thisthis, and this), surely knowing the diet is purely ideological. Gastroenterologists are useless and sometimes harmful. Diabetics of all backgrounds were advised for decades to eat low-fat, high carb diets that made them sicker, leading to heart disease, blindness, amputations, and kidney failure. Thyroid patients are still gaslighted by endocrinologists who look at tired, depressed, cold, overweight patients with thinning hair and tell them their thyroid is fine based on inadequate tests. Statins--which don't reduce coronary calcium scores--can cause diabetes, muscle pain, and even dementia. Yet some doctors have earnestly suggested putting them in the water supply. The root of most of these problems is the huge experiment perpetrated on the American people--the low-fat diet. Coke, McDonald's and TV had all been around for decades when overweight and diabetes started shooting up--a trend that immediately followed government advice to eat less fat. More recently, we've all been put through a giant and novel experiment in quarantining a healthy population. 

As I've said before, the vaccines may be relatively safe, and I hope they are. But we have no way of knowing possible long-term effects at this point. I for one have been through enough medical experiments in my life--I'm not signing up for another one.

COVID Vaccines Altering Blood Sugar, Electrolyte Balance

"My insulin requirements skyrocketed after being vaccinated," writes Steve Kirsch . Kirsch says he's a type 2 diabetic who controls his blood sugar with insulin, and didn't understand why his need for insulin suddenly changed. But he found a small study of people who used the Chinese SinoVac vaccine which showed healthy volunteers' HBA1C all went up--in some cases, to prediabetic levels . From the study, To our surprise, quite consistent increases in HbA1c levels were observed in healthy volunteers, regardless of whether they belonged to cohort A or B. By day 28 post the 1st inoculation, three out of 11 individuals reached the prediabetic range (Fig. ​(Fig.2c).2c ). By days 42 and 90, medium HbA1c levels appeared to revert back, yet were still significantly higher than those before vaccination. Kirsch isn't alone. Dr. Richard Bernstein, an author, researcher and clinician with type 1 diabetes who pioneered home blood sugar testing, says his blood sugar droppe

Ivermectin for my Cold: How it Went

Disclaimer: please note I'm not a medical professional.  Last week I took ivermectin for what turned out to be a cold. I'd been feeling tired and had a little congestion, but didn't feel sick until Monday morning. I took a COVID test Tuesday (the soonest I could get one), and Tuesday evening started taking ivermectin.  I immediately felt better. Maybe there was a placebo effect; maybe it really started working that fast. Still, I got very tired early in the evening Tuesday and Wednesday, which is unusual for me, and had a runny nose. But the mildly miserable feeling you get when you're fighting a cold was gone. I am still coughing, but it's a dry, itchy cough. The only other cold remedies I took were a few doses of Mucinex and lots of cough drops. I felt well enough yesterday to go out in the cold and plant some fountain grass. I'd have planted the 15 coral bell plants I bought on sale, but it got dark. Today has been snowy and windy.  The ivermectin affected my

Vaccine Mandate Stayed in Court

Alex Berenson reports the 5th Circuit Court has issued an emergency stay of Biden's vaccine mandate. I'm celebrating with a fat, juicy mushroom Swiss burger, a green salad with full-fat Caesar dressing a some French lentil salad (need the prebiotic fiber!). Looks like the truckers will keep on hauling in dairy from Iowa (Kalona butter is the best!) and tasty produce from Mexico, since truckers have been declared exempt from the mandate.  There's a burger under there. Tonight, after moving some outdoor plants on this beautiful day, I'm putting on my Sassy Mauve lipstick and going out. The chin-strokers, the busybodies, the just-enough-booksmarts-to-cause-trouble coronabros who want clot shots for all and masks forever can kiss my behind.

"Trusting the Science" Cringe

"We trusted the science!" This is what I keep hearing when I watch videos made by vaccine victims' next of kin. I cringe every time. I have nothing but sympathy for little Maddie, now in a wheelchair after participating in one of the trials , and others like her . But science is a process , not a corporation, not a government committee, and not a product. It's done best dispassionately and without perverse incentives--not in the middle of a major panic. You need data to have science you can trust, and the data simply weren't there. Getting an experimental injection has no more to do with trusting the science than smoking on the advice of your doctor to lose weight or calm your nerves did back in the 50s.  Ah, but the vaccines were tested! In fact, they're still in the middle of phase 3 trials, which aren't scheduled to end for another two years. Pfizer's trial was unblinded at six months--meaning there's no longer a control group  that hasn't

COVID Test Result is In

I don't have COVID.  On the one hand, it would have been a relief to have finally caught COVID and gotten natural antibodies, especially from having a mild case of it. On the other hand, I was concerned about my dog catching it from me (he's healthy, but nine years old) and it might have interfered with Thanksgiving plans.  Until I'm well, I'll stay home.
