Suffering Fools Gladly

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.

The Silence of the Scientists

The Silence of Scientists

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.

Is That All There Is to a Pandemic*?

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address

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.

Our Lying Eyes

Groucho Marx Lying Eyes

Groucho Marx, when caught in a compromised condition, retorted: “Who you gonna believe —  me or your lying eyes?” Although Chico may have actually said it first, it’s attributed to Groucho. And that has become the popular narrative. So it’s become the truth. Kind of like “deaths with COVID-19” have become “deaths from COVID-19” as the coronavirus pandemic has grown. And “positive tests for COVID-19” have become “COVID-19 cases.”

Nocebos and Mass Hysteria

Nocebos & Mass Hysteria

A nocebo effect is the opposite of a placebo effect. A placebo makes you get well because you think you will. A nocebo makes you get sick because you think you will. Both work if you believe authority figures (doctors and experts) who say they work. The mechanism is imaginary or psychological. But the effects are real and physiological.

Mississippi’s Public School System Post COVID-19

Mississippi's Education System Post COVID-19

It’s past time for K-12 expenditures to reflect the downturn in enrollment.  It’s also time for reforms to the educational establishment to change the way students learn.  The need for large-scale investments in costly infrastructure need to be scrutinized in our digital age.

Doctor or Politician?

Doctor or Politician?

A recent analysis of CDC data by Johns Hopkins’ Dr. Genevieve Briand shows that increased deaths “involving” COVID-19 are offset by decreased deaths due to other causes.  She finds that total deaths from all causes have not increased due to the virus.
