It's March and I'm listening to high school football announced on the local country station. It's March with football...
Gas was 2.73 to 2.75 at most convenience stores around home this morning. Its 2.85 at the Valero. I think that's Venezuelan oil.
Hey, Dr. Pepper's 4 for 9 at the Royal Farms. They got good chicken and tater logs.

At last, a KILLED VIRUS vaccine. This will be one to watch. But as always, what's in it?

Wow. There is bias practically screaming from almost every sentence of that video; it reminds me of an example of "bad science" that was used when I was in college ("at the end of our study, we will show that blah, blah, blah . . ."). Somebody obviously checked their objectivity at the door on that one. At the very least, taking Nicaragua's official word for anything is almost as bad as believing everything that comes out of China. :rolleyes:

For an example of a country that has done far better than even Nicaragua claims to have done, how about Australia:

For many months now, there has been a discussion about why you can't draw a clear comparison between restrictions and cases (California vs Florida being the favorite; they have had similar numbers in spite of having very different approaches). Here's an article from early February that talks about it
https://www.healthline.com/health-n...covid-19-case-rates-the-answer-is-complicated

One conclusion I have seen basically said that, if you give people a choice, you will get people choosing to do the right thing no matter what. If you try to force people to do something, there will always be people who do their dead level best to not do what you want. More or less, in a free society, people are gonna do what they darn well please, and your results will reflect that, rather than whatever the local rules are. Certainly, we have seen that here. Shortly after lockdown began here in NC, we had a nearby county that had one of the highest infection rates in the state, in spite of being mostly rural and having a relatively small population. The health care workers there said they knew why this was; all they had to do was look at who they had coming in for treatment. They had a certain population in the county that were engaging in large gatherings practically every weekend; most of the cases they were seeing had attended those gatherings (if memory serves, in one incident, 40-some cases were traced to a single birthday party). It's pretty hard to make a serious argument one way or the other on the effectiveness of any measure attempted when you have so many people flagrantly disregarding it. As the Op/Ed piece on Australia pointed out, compliance plays a big part in how well something works.

I have some friends in Australia... and the offiCial reported effeCts of the loCkdowns and suCh are a far Cry from what is talked about and done behind the sCenes... and several of them are saying that what is getting reported on the "cConventional news" is a far Cry from some of what is going on.
My c is not always working in the small case so may have some capital c's in here...

Have you seen the artiCle that is NOT being reported by "Conventional news" about the mother of 11 children in ChurCh in the midwest.... Catholic Church .... home schooling family with a farm..... not wearing masks and socially distanced from any other parishioners.... Priest had her ARRESTED in front of her Children... for not wearing the mask. Yet she was socially distanced from everyone else in the church. And the Priest was not wearing a mask and was closer to the parishioners during the service than she was....
Masking was pushed in the beginning if you were unable to socially distance at least 6 feet... the guidelines were an AND/OR situation.... now the priests are treating their own parishioners like that.... do as I say, not as I do....

There are several countries in the African continent that have very low rates of "covid" and it is being attributed to their use of ivermectin for other causes.... there are several studies on the different uses of ivermectin....
But that is something that is for people to read with an open mind and to not take any one source as gospel or have a preconceived belief that one "side" is right.... period no questions asked.

I am glad that I did not take at face value the countless doctors that said I should have the ankle fused... because that was the "conventional" approach..... and found the doctor that said, no, you do not have to have it fused, we can do this for you..... and I have had better than anyone expected results. I kept searching and looking at other possibilities, and going against conventional thinking.....
