Covid authoritarians are decrying Twitter (mostly) abandoning censorship policies, on the grounds the platform will be flooded with misinformation, leading to all sorts of bad things. To assuage their concerns, here's a guide to functioning in these uncertain and difficult times:
1) RECOGNIZE that "misinformation" is nothing new. Humans have told lies from time immemorial. That's why not lying is one of the 10 Commandments. "Misinformation" is just a scary word used by politicians and bureaucrats to convince you that we are dealing with a new phenomenon.
2) USE common sense. Just because someone says something on the internet doesn't mean it's true. Believe it or not, you can exercise your own judgment instead of relying on the geniuses who work at the CDC & Twitter! Here are a few tips to help you assess claims on the internet:

Meet Delilah, one of the starved down mares we rescued with her foal, from Thursday's auction. Thanks to the loving donations of wonderful people, (& NO thanks to the kill buyer who ran the bids up obscenely high 🤬), we were able to bring this poor mare & her 3 - 4 month old-
old colt, Bodie, home to our rescue.Delilah is skin & bones everywhere but her round belly, which is clearly full of worms. We have to be very careful with deworming her so we don't kill off too many worms at once and possibly lose Delilah. We have her on a re-feeding program- Image
where we feed her many small meals of alfalfa, tifton hay and complete feed nuggets around the clock. We can't overload her body with too much food at once; her digestive tract and her organscannot handle free choice hay like all the other rescue horses here at the ranch enjoy.- Image

Do you see this poor horse? Sadly tonight, we will probably see him at the auction again.💔 He is stuck in the "slaughter pipeline," purchased by a horse trader who will continue to take him from auction to auction, exploiting him, trying to get the price he wants.😭
(*Part 1)
The first time we saw this poor boy, was at an auction over 2 months ago. He was fat and shiny and looked well cared for.❤ He did not sell, the trader wanted too much money for him.😭 Each time we see him at the auctions, his condition looks worse.😭
(*Part 2)
We would love to get him out of the pipeline of misery but we do not have $2,000 to save him.😭 This breaks our hearts seeing a once vibrant pony riding a child around in a halter, change to dull, thinner & sunburned with a chain & bar across his nose to control him💔

1/n Dr. Mark Siegel is a superb critical care physician, ethicist, colleague & a legendary Internal Medicine Residency Program director whose weekly note I read eagerly. I tuned this week' note: #wellness in times of #COVID19 into a #weetorial #MarksWisom…
2/ First 4 are about continuing to live: Eat. Sleep. Exercise. Socialize. At times of crisis we tend to consider these luxuries - they are not. They are fuels that keep us effective as physician, during normal or abnormal situations #StaySafe but #KeepLiving #MarksWisdom
3/ #StaySafe basics: Wash your hands long & often! Clean your phones with appropriate wipes. Avoid crowding in work room. Never, ever go into to a possible #COVID19 room without PPE, even in emergencies. Carefully don and doff PPE & ask if concerned #wellness #MarksWisdom

(1) My thoughts on some recent Trump tweets.

This video clip from an hour ago is wonderful. I will let him speak for himself.🇺🇸❤️

#Winning #SavingLives #MAGA

(2) It's high time we gave proper credit to all the military & other personnel who have contributed to the victory against ISIS.

Ofc it isn't over, I know. But Trump is right to celebrate with the country the substantive victory achieved in 17-18. Local allies "have the watch."
(3) Now for the tweets I missed while on a break. This one is accurate & not new, but I like that he mentions collusion at the end. We've seen the clear evidence of most of the beltway MSM being paid to spread the BS dossier & more. It will all come out.

Saving a speared baby #elephant. Earlier this wk, we received reports of a little calf who had been speared in his left haunch, leaving him with a deep & painful wound. Our DSWT/KWS Mara Vet Unit found him & his mother standing in the mud, with the calf clearly suffering.
His mother seemed to realize the team's good intentions and complied when they used their vehicle to gently push her away so they could treat the patient unencumbered. Here, the Vet examines his wounds,
After cleaning the wound and packing it with green clay, they gave the calf antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications before reviving him and sending him on his way.
