1. Thinking Past Slogans

Don't want to toot my own horn too much (only a little), but it takes the ability to look at every situation with an open mind and pure logic to think beyond slogans and aphorisms.

Allow me to illustrate the point. Ponder over this.
2. You will be hard pressed to find a bigger supporter of free markets than your truly. And yet, to my knowledge, I was the first one, and quite likely the only free marketer, to complain about the unconscionably high price of Covid vaccines that the U.S. government 'negotiated.'
3. See the below thread I wrote eight months ago, for which I received a lot of guff about being an impure free marketer. Yes, I am a free marketer to the core, but that doesn't mean I let government-industrial complex pull wool over my eyes.

The End
P.S. No fricking kidding!
Many will wake up to the fact that the U.S. government fleeced the U.S. taxpayers to enrich friends in the pharmaceutical industry. Just know I was the first to raise the alarm at inception. Monday morning quarterbacking is easy.

1. Remember in March when Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, decided to share her private hunch at a White House press briefing? Dr. Walensky intoned, “I’m going to reflect on the recurring feeling I have of impending doom.”
2. Many Americans have learned not to trust her feelings about Covid. But what really should concern the citizenry is that the fearful government disease doctor might have been referring to constitutional liberty.
3. How else can one explain her decision to sign her name to what appears to be an unlawful eviction moratorium order? Desperate times call for desperate measures, but Dr. Walensky’s own data show that the times are much less desperate than they used to be.

1. Covid Mysteries

In India — where the Delta variant was first identified and caused a huge outbreak — cases have plunged over the past two months. A similar drop may now be underway in Britain. There is no clear explanation for these declines.
2. In the U.S., cases started falling rapidly in early January. The decline began before vaccination was widespread and did not follow any evident changes in Americans’ Covid attitudes. Maybe it was just reverting to previous year's decline after the holidays-induced surge.
3. In March and April, the Alpha variant helped cause a sharp rise in cases in the upper Midwest and Canada. That outbreak seemed poised to spread to the rest of North America — but did not.

This tweet is willfully deceptive and dishonest AF.

Article says:

"Nearly all Americans (94%) – including 95% of both Republicans and Democrats – say it is important that people who are legally qualified to vote are able to cast a ballot, with 82% saying it is very important.""
Voting is not a constitutional fundamental right in the U.S. It is a privilege of U.S. citizenship and is contingent upon meeting reasonable and prudent requirements (e.g. an age requirement). There are other conditions (e.g. incarceration) that are not unreasonable to debate..
Most Americans (81%) say it is at least somewhat important to prevent people who are not legally qualified to vote from doing so.

However, Republicans are considerably more likely than Democrats to say it is very important to prevent this (78% vs. 44%).

1. A Devastating Expose of the Corruption that is California Education Establishment
2. "Equity" is the demon seed of America's decline and ultimate destruction. Anything government does in the name of 'equity' is more likely than not rooted in some race-baiting hustle that will inevitably harm rather than help those in whose name the con is perpetrated.
3. California education establishment is racist to its core against the Asian students in their care, and California has a long tradition of stabbing Asians in the back in the name of sanctimonious ideals.

1. WSJ: ‘Unintentional Injuries’ and the Lockdown

It may take years to accurately measure deaths from Covid and deaths from the reaction to Covid.

How devastating was the 2020 pandemic and how devastating was government’s reaction to the pandemic?
2. It will likely take years to reach definitive conclusions, but the latest annual federal report on U.S. mortality is a start in discovering the answers.
3. Along with the well-documented ravages of Covid, the government is reporting a stunning increase, especially among young people, in a broad category called “unintentional injuries” that demands further investigation.

For about 10 minutes. Now he is back, intact and optimistic. Thank God!

Despite all the venom spewed at him by the liberal losers, Jeff Bezos, just like Elon Musk, is a national treasure. Being human, he has his flaws, but what an entrepreneur! And a pioneer par excellence! Image
