Our goal is a 21st century health care marketplace that better utilizes technology and new business models to offer consumers more accessible, higher quality care at a more affordable price.
Richard Feynman said: “Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts.”
Too many National Football League players are testing positive for COVID-19 and messing up the betting odds. And lineups for fantasy football leagues – including our Family Feud League. So, the NFL is moving test goal posts to reduce the number of flagged players who have to sit out games. Bad for business to mess with bookies. And TV schedules and audiences.
Our Declaration of Independence says: “…Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” Government’s purpose is to secure our unalienable rights including Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. The government hasn’t done this. It has abused its powers to take our rights. So the governed have withdrawn their consent. A clue is: “Let’s go Brandon.”
Our Governor said the Center for Disease Control’s recently reinstated mask guidelines are foolish. The reporter who covered his Neshoba County Fair speech noted he said this despite “rocketing numbers of COVID-19 cases in the state according to WAPT”. Did the Mississippi State Department of Health fall in line with the Governor? No. It parroted the CDC. Why? Because, you know, more cases, and The Science, and the narrative. Also, the arrogant guild of unelected bureaucrats and their agencies aren’t responsible to the voters.
There are lots of narratives spinning Dr. Fauci’s role in the pandemic* – including his self-serving ones. Which to believe? Maybe none. Diogenes might not find an honest man or woman anywhere among today’s narrative makers.
COVID-19 has been labeled a pandemic. It should probably be labeled pandemic* ( to note unnatural – manmade or Batwoman made). It is reported to have caused or to have been involved in 3.5 million deaths to date. That’s about 4/100 of 1% of the world’s 7.9 billion inhabitants today. It wouldn’t register on the Richter scale of historic pandemics – if there were such a thing. But it happened in the age of ubiquitous iPhones and Androids, talking heads, scripted narratives, and social media censorship.
