I think this article is correct about Trump's response to Covid, and what it did to his presidency, and to the country.

Trump assumed, poorly, that the CDC had the "best and the brightest" minds regarding the bug.

I was wondering if stuff like that would start happening.  I didn't expect the Biden Admin to do anything, but this is different.

They made their ruling, now let's see them enforce it.

The principals actors making the calls to ignore it face no negative consequences and their lawyer friends stand to make serious money on the taxpayers dime defending the action.
Why the hell should they worry?
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.

Key Points

Question  Does ivermectin, 400 μg/kg, daily for 3 days, compared with placebo, shorten symptom duration among adult (≥30 years) outpatients in the US with symptomatic mild to moderate COVID-19?

Findings  In this double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled platform trial conducted in the US during a period of Delta and Omicron variant predominance, and that included 1591 adult outpatients with COVID-19, the posterior probability of improvement in time to recovery in those treated with ivermectin vs placebo had a hazard ratio of 1.07, with a posterior probability of benefit of .91. This did not meet the prespecified threshold of posterior probability greater than .95.

Meaning  These findings do not support the use of ivermectin in outpatients with mild to moderate COVID-19.

What gets me is that they keep trying to treat it like an antiviral, in already presented cases (where the symptoms actually are enough to show). Has anyone actually done a monitored prophylaxis study? Which is how some of  the early claims about the "drugs we can't talk about on facebook" came about.

Seems like a pretty small dose of ivermectin.  That works out to about 33 milligrams once a day for three days for a 180 pound person.
Looking at typical dosages for other human usage, 33 mg is in the ballpark.  Not sure what to think about the study.  I'd wonder what dosages over what time periods the medical proponents of ivermectin were using when they were claiming to see positive results on Covid.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

JP hit the nail on the head again.

https://youtu.be/nYhq-N06ub0

*expletive deleted*ck these aholes. Covid hysteria and this new "amnesty" are the perfect example of the one side having the volume knob that we're all supposed to just accept, and our side having the switch (that we're really close to switching).

JP is probably right with "Forgive but don't forget", but it's really hard for me to forgive, considering these people wanted me dead.

The great thing about the amnesty talk is that it means they can no longer hide the truth.

Myocarditis after Covid vaccination: Research on possible long-term risks underway
https://archive.ph/ZZo9K

Quote
Now, the first research in the U.S. is underway, tracking adverse health effects — if any — that may appear in the years following a diagnosis of vaccine-associated heart problems. Moderna has already launched two trials, the most recent in September. Pfizer confirmed that at least one of its trials, which will include up to 500 teens and young adults under age 21, is slated to begin in the next couple of months.

I would prefer to see the problems and total vaccine doses broken down by age group rather than comparing everything to total vaccines administered.

My VA Head nurse for my Doc recommended I get no more Covid shots. I have the J&J + the J&J booster and intend to get no more. REAL vaccines, like flu and pneumonia, sure, just got both the 16th.

Given that a very dear friend died from an "autoimmune reaction" a year ago after getting the booster that she THOUGHT would let her finally get out of her house for the holidays...
 
She was mostly healthy, but watched too much television, and that was exacerbated during the lockdown...
