Vax Mandate Closes Emergency Room

A Long Beach, New York emergency room has closed due to staffing shortages. At least they're admitting it's because of the state's vaccine mandates and not claiming that dozens of employees suddenly quit because of stress. Story here.


COVID vaccines don't stop infection or spread, they only slow it down a little. Nevertheless, the ER has been closed to keep you safe. The hospital says it's just temporary until they find more employees, who are going to come from...where, exactly? While the ER is closed, patients can rush to the nearest emergency room five miles away, presumably through New York City's gridlocked traffic. 

This closure was due to a state mandate, but hospitals and doctors offices are likewise driving the clown car off the cliff of their own accord, firing staff even if they've already had COVID and have better immunity than the shot offers, firing staff even if they work remotely. Is there anyone who still believes that the medical industry is guided by science, evidence or reason?

As long as opinions are guided by reason or evidence, I usually don't mind hearing them even if I disagree with them. But the devil is in the details, and the details are mostly in primary sources. Once you find those sources, you have to know something about where the information came from, how it's presented, whether it supports any conclusions offered, and whether it fits with related facts. It's difficult and time-consuming. 

So when someone says they don't pay much attention to the news and they have better things to do than obsess about politics, their opinions on news and politics cannot have been well researched or analyzed. Unfortunately, Living Stingy is no longer about living stingy, but regurgitating the news and taking a dump on anyone whose politics and vaccination status stray from what they say on TV. I'm dropping the blog from the roll, but you can see archives at livingstingy.blogspot.com

Why Are 40% More Hoosiers Dying?

An astonishing article came out stating the death rate is up 40% from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people--and it's not all COVID. Scott Davison, CEO of life insurance company OneAmerica, says,  “We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business – not just at OneAmerica... The data is consistent across every player in that business.” ...the increase in deaths represents “huge, huge numbers,” and ... it’s not elderly people who are dying, but “primarily working-age people 18 to 64” who are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica. “And what we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic,” he said. “Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.” OneAmerica is a real company,

Shopping for Scarce Items

Even though there haven't been runs on groceries or other supplies for over a year, some of the shelves are still bare. Nevertheless, I've found most of what I've been looking for: garden shrubs, holiday tea, flavoring, supplements and ivermectin. I'm not affiliated with any of these vendors. Bottlebrush plant ( fothergilla gardenii) Photo from dasfarms at Etsy I'm going to plant the last strip of grass by the sidewalk with native perennials and a few bottlebrush plants next year. I have the perennial seeds--some of them are already stratifying in the refrigerator--but I wanted a few bottlebrush plants, too. It's a North American shrub with fragrant blooms that look like--well, bottle brushes in the spring. The fall color is beautiful. But the dwarf size is hard to find! I finally found some at dasfarms on Etsy, a shop with lots of positive reviews at Dave's Garden . The owner said the mature size depends on soil and water. They'll be going on a south-fa

Hospitals Abandoning Vaccine Mandates

The COVID-19 vaccine mandates are going up in smoke as hospital systems across the country are "pausing" them for employees. The recent injunctions on federal mandates didn't stop private employers from requiring vaccinations, but several major private hospital systems have changed course anyway. The surge in COVID hospitalizations in northern states, along with the shortage of health care workers that has nothing to do with making them get an experimental injection,  might have encouraged the change in their policies. Here in Indiana, the House has drafted bills to officially end our "state of emergency" and outlaw forced COVID vaccinations . Under the bill, employers with a vaccine mandate would have to offer and pay for a testing option.  In DC, Joe Manchin of West Virginia has become the first Democrat senator to support a bill initiated by Indiana's Mike Braun to overturn the OSHA vaccine mandate . Somewhere, I read that West Virginia would be more har

Book Deal: Pandemia by Alex Berenson is $2.99

What more could you possibly want to hear about the pandemic, you might be wondering. I had my doubts, too, but I finally ended up buying Pandemia because Alex Berenson's spicy takes have been more entertaining than anything I've read in a long time. I'm glad I got the book. I'm still in the middle of listening to it on my long commute, but I'm recommending it now because the Kindle version is on sale. Get this book! It's informative, it's well-researched, it's engrossing, you'll say, "I remember when that happened!" It has information that even I hadn't come across.  Having covered the pharmaceutical industry long before the pandemic, Berenson was scooping the rest of the media by months in his reporting on the vaccines. He was ultimately banned from Twitter for saying that COVID vaccines didn't prevent infection or transmission--facts repeated yesterday by Anthony Fauci and others a few days ago in the New England Journal of Medic

Covidian Professor: "Cloth Masks are Little More than Face Decorations"

CNN's Leana Wen, their in-house panic peddler and forced vaccination fanatic, said yesterday that "cloth masks are little more than face decorations." She recommended three-ply surgical masks instead, along with an elaborate purifying ritual for being around other people at Christmas.  . @DrLeanaWen : "Don't wear a cloth mask. Cloth masks are little more than facial decorations. There's no place for them in light of Omicron." pic.twitter.com/Kpoj18sxdi — Townhall.com (@townhallcom) December 21, 2021 Let me explain why cloth masks are face decorations since Wen didn't: aerosols readily go through and around the masks . COVID is spread by aerosols. However, that makes surgical masks face decorations as well, since aerosols go through and around them, too.
