1/ South Caroolina C19 sanity: “since April, we South Carolinians have been free to live our lives, more or less. There are some rules, but the always-difficult freedom-loving people of South Carolina seem free to take these rules or leave them”. lockdownsceptics.org/2021/02/09/lat…
2/ "And our leaders did not panic when ‘cold and flu season’ arrived, with the inevitable increase in mortality among the elderly"
3/ "SC, as of 01/27/2021 & per CDC data, has 1,272 COVID-19 deaths per million citizens, lower than the national average for the USA (1,278). And we might compare our numbers to the most savagely locked-down state, MA, with its 2,057 COVID-19 deaths per million"

1/ "COVID-19 and the Political Economy of Mass Hysteria":
“The more centralized and the more power a state has, the higher the probability and extension of mass hysteria" mdpi.com/1660-4601/18/4… ImageImage
2/ "The more centralized and the more power a state has, the higher the probability and extension of mass hysteria. In a minimal state, there exist self-correcting mechanisms that limit collective hysteria."
3/ "The enforcement of private property rights limits the harm inflicted by those that succumb to the hysteria. The state (thanks to a fuzzy public sector and its soft power ), by contrast, amplifies and exacerbates mass panics, potentially causing important havoc."

2/ “Calculating the mean Ct values for post-vax infections identified on each day following vaccination, we found that Ct values of positive samples collected 12-28 days after vaccination were higher than Ct values of positive samples taken during the first 11 days following vax"
3/ “comparing the Ct values distribution of post-vaccination infections identified during the early protection period (days 12-28, n=1,142) with its demographically-matched unvaccinated control group of the same size, we identified a significant increase in Ct”

1/Investigators are struggling to build a federal murder case regarding fallen U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, vexed by a lack of evidence that could prove someone caused his death as he defended the Capitol during last month's insurrection. wyff4.com/article/invest…
2/ According to one law enforcement official, medical examiners did not find signs that the officer sustained any blunt force trauma, so investigators believe that early reports that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher are not true.
3/ One possibility being considered by investigators is that Sicknick became ill after interacting with a chemical irritant like pepper spray or bear spray that was deployed in the crowd.
