Party like it's 1984

I still want someone to explain how rights can be rights if they are "balanced" against other rights. Rights have to be, in some sense, absolute, if they're to be rights at all.

We have to go back to "your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins," instead of "your right to punch people randomly must be balanced against my right to safety." One of those formulae has bright lines - the other is all subjectivity.
This member used to have another name, and the name that this member used to have was fistful.

Damn you Delta variant! Get off your ass and infect more people!

Just got back from Costco, where I learned from the receipt checker on the way out that senior hours are being cut back to tue and thu starting next week. At first I was too vain to use them, but now I want them. Get moving on the infections, Delta!

Butbutbut... I've been using them ever since the bioweapon started. Turns out I like being carded for not being old enough.  =D

And the gov is asking people to put their masks back on.

Costco opts to continue senior shopping hours

That's what I mentioned in my post. Going to just tue and thu. Which works, but the seniors with the failing memories just have to remember the days.  =D

Invermectin study being withdrawn from publication after concerns over plagiarism and data integrity:

Thankfully there are quite a few Ivermectin studies out there.

Elgazzar was one of the exclusions mentioned in "With exclusions" if that helps.

Less than 1% of the cost and more than triple the effectiveness.

I’m sure money has nothing to do with a new, less effective, more risky drug like Remdesivir being an acceptable treatment and an off-patent, apparently moderately effective, very low risk drug like Ivermectin being labeled at every opportunity as a terrible idea.

Here's what the new PM in Israel is looking at doing for the Delta variant:

https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2021/07/23/israel-announces-major-restrictions-on-the-unvaccinated-over-the-delta-variant/

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Biden admin copy it.

Again, had I not had the bioweapon, it's highly likely  that I would have taken the vaccine. Given present research, I'm still sticking with my natural immunity, which again, is never addressed in these immunization schemes. I would have no problem ignoring Israeli-like restrictions regarding not having a vaccine passport. My area might go to masks if push came to shove, but they would never require documentation, and I don't visit most of the places they are talking about anyway. As long as I can get into a grocery store, I'm good. Not sure what I would do if I lived someplace like NYC, where I could potentially be banned from buying food if Israeli style restrictions were enacted.

Wal Mart supercenter next town over has closed down due to a Covid outbreak. They plan to be closed through the weekend. None of the local walmart stores closed down during the peak of the dempanic in 2020.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

They aren't "hinting" any more.  Look at what they have done in L.A. and this coming Monday in St. Louis.

Thursday I went out for a smoke at my office. They were setting up the big tables with masks, wipes, and sanitizer again.

I suspect very soon we'll have another corporate mask mandate.
