Minor Surgery

I love minor surgery.

It’s so, so .. minor.

Let me tell you what I was taught in medical school years ago: there is no such thing as a simple operation.

Even the most simple of operations have complications.

I’m going to give you my experience with extraction of wisdom teeth.

This article is primarily for older people.

I am sixty-seven years old.

In as few words as possible, the take home message here is this: stock up on Motrin.

If you are a young person, your recovery time and pain will probably be equivalent to what you can read in many publications online.

If you are in your 60s, your recovery time will be significantly slower.

Let’s just say that my recovery time was not in days. It looks like my recovery time will be in weeks.

I am in my eighth day post surgery; I am still experiencing pain.

No, I am not infected. I do not have fever. The oral surgeon has already looked at my teeth. Just a few days ago he told me that my sockets looked good.

So why am I experiencing pain?

Well, here is what I think.

Here’s what I have learned so far.

To begin with, when you grow older, your metabolism is not going to be as good. You are going to heal slower.

In addition to that, your existing teeth become more integrated with the bony structure of your jaw.

Flexibility is lost when you grow older.

Consequently pulling out your wisdom teeth at an advanced age is like pulling bone from bone. It’s going to be tougher.

As a result, pulling out wisdom teeth is like Floyd Mayweather punching your jaw over and over again.

It’s almost like breaking a bone.

Your broken bone is not going to heal within a few days.

Your broken bone is going to heal over a period of six weeks.

Likewise, the socket is not going to fill-in right away

I suspect that in my case there are a few live wires on the inside of those sockets. Consequently, it’s going to take time for my body to bury those live wires again with bone and gum tissue.

That’s why I think I am experiencing pain.

The air from the outside is coming into contact with those live wires.

What I have found that works best is Motrin.

I am taking the max dose that is considered safe.

I am taking 800 mg four times a day.

The Motrin seems to work better than aspirin, although so far I have not maxed out on the aspirin.

For me Motrin has been a miracle drug.

It will reliably kill all the pain within thirty minutes to an hour after ingestion.

My case is a little different in that I have experienced one complication from my extraction.

When you pull out a wisdom tooth at my age, it is customary sometimes for the socket to expand and disrupt the bone architecture at the myelohyoid ridge on the inside of the jaw.

Consequently, I have a bone spur rubbing against my tongue.

It has made it difficult for me to talk and to swallow.

I have learned how to talk in a different way.

I now speak like a ventriloquist, that is to say I move my tongue as little as possible.

The oral surgeon says this is a short term problem which will only last three to five weeks.

He states that the body will extrude and remodel the bone shortly.

I will keep you posted.

In closing, remember what the wise man said about minor surgery.

Minor surgery? That’s the other guy’s surgery.

Note: What you read here is only my experience. This is not a substitute for a dental professional’s qualified advice. Please consult your dental professional.

Evidence-Based Lies

As I’ve stated many times before, Harvard University is the enemy of our liberty and freedom.

It is also a threat to any reasonable quality of life. Examples are boundless. Today I will talk about evidence-based medicine.

Recently an article appeared in the British Medical Journal entitled: The Illusion of Evidence Based Medicine.

In a nutshell the authors argue that corporations have corrupted the professors and in turn their studies that evidence-based medicine promotes as truth.

As a pediatrician this is not surprising to me.

About a decade ago, cold medicines were being promoted by insurance companies, and the supporters of evidence-based medicine, as being useless to children.

Evidence-based medicine, the insurance companies claimed, proved that the cold medicines were not really working.

There was no shortage of puppets in academia who went along with this.

I found this confusing because moms had been telling me for decades that certain cold medicines worked. They would make comments like this: “Well, the medicine worked for a few days, then wore off.” This made sense to me as the body will in many cases acclimate to a medicine. Moreover, it told me that the medicine initially did have effectiveness.

Additionally, I had tried out many of these medicines myself over several decades. So I knew from first-hand experience that the medicines worked.

Nevertheless there was no shortage of academic puppets who were telling us that these cold medicines weren’t working in children.

Well, I asked myself, why wouldn’t they work? These cold medicines are working on basic cell receptors which are essential to life itself.

It would be inconceivable that babies would be born without these receptors.

I reluctantly concluded that evidence-based medicine was a sham that was being used by insurance companies in order to justify not paying for medicines. After all if the insurance company doesn’t have to pay for a medicine, it makes more money for itself and its executives.

To be honest, I never liked the term evidence-based medicine in the first place.

This term came into being more commonly in the 1990s after I had finished my training.

I took offense to it.

I asked myself: “What were we practicing before? Fantasy based medicine?”

Yes, it’s true there was a lot of quackery in the field of healthcare, but I did not notice much of this coming from regular doctors.

Even back in my training I remember doctors questioning many of the quack medicines that were being put out by Corporate America.

It seemed to me that the quackery was coming from Corporate America.

Medicines like Baby Percy should have been eliminated from supermarket shelves decades ago.

Yet, evidence-based medicine was not used at all to remove these products from being sold.

Evidence-based medicine was being used to remove valid medicines from the doctors prescribing arsenal.

What does that tell you?

Enter David Sackett.

David Sackett was a physician, Harvard trained, who was a prominent early pioneer of evidence-based medicine.

This is not surprising to me that he was trained at Harvard.

You wouldn’t have heard of the name David Sackett if he hadn’t gone to Harvard.

David Sackett wasn’t the pioneer of evidence-based medicine; Harvard University was the pioneer of evidence-based medicine.

David Sackett was merely the vehicle that Harvard University used.

If David Sackett was a small time doctor, non-Harvard trained, sitting out in the middle of nowhere, writing articles calling for the elimination of quack medicines on supermarket shelves, you would’ve never heard of him.

He would be like me, unheard of, not permitted to speak.

But he was permitted to speak. And that should tell you volumes.

Harvard is first and foremost an agent of the empire.

Harvard exists to promote the domination of the corporate wealthy elite over the world’s population.

That’s why Harvard exists.

Harvard accomplishes this by training and promoting the officers of Corporate America.

Implicit in this training is that such officers will promote corporate interests.

Perhaps David Sackett had good intentions when he attended Harvard.

Perhaps you have good intentions as you attend Harvard.

Well, let me tell you something, Mister. You aren’t going to change Harvard; Harvard is going to change you.

Whatever good idea or good intention you may have, Harvard will find a way to twist that and use it to further corporate interests.

This is the problem we face today.

We now live on Mr. Darcy’s slave plantation.

Mr. Darcy, Mr. Darcy, Mr. Darcy.

Fuck Mr. Darcy.

Harvard works to promote corporate interests that work against us, our health and our welfare.

The university must be destroyed.

Debunking evidence-based medicine is a good start.

CalCare: DOA

Will CalCare work?

Poorly.

CalCare is Governor Gavin Newsome’s ambitious plan to cover healthcare for all Californians.

Assuming it does pass, it will work poorly, escalate healthcare costs, and cause a further widening of the wealth gap between rich and poor.

That it will do so is a mathematical certainty.

It will do so because in a government run healthcare system decisions are often made not in the best interest of the patient but in the best interest of the politician’s friend.

You can expect cavernous clinics in the middle of nowhere that sit empty.

You can expect a massive surplus in hospital supplies that are unnecessary.

You can expect programs and projects within CalCare to teeter on the edge of bankruptcy.

The fraud and waste will be incredible.

Complaints, emergency meetings and stopgap funding will become the norm.

Expect the likes of the London ambulance company and its 45 minute response times.

It can’t be anything but this.

Ultimately single payer in California will pass.

It will pass not because its time has come, as the politicians will crow.

Nor will it pass because it’s the best thing for the people.

It will pass because the wealthy thug elite will have already laid out a plan to rape the system bare.

Fraud will be in the cards.

It’ll be a done deal.

That’s the future we face in the United States today.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

If California truly wants to provide affordable and accessible healthcare for everybody, all it needs to do is to create a competitive healthcare marketplace.

This would entail breaking up the large healthcare monopolies and insurers.

It would mean breaking up large pharmaceutical conglomerates.

These current corporations are bloated, ossified dinosaurs that make an aged and overweight Elvis look like a ripped stud with a chiseled six pack.

Competition works!

Only with true competition can you get better quality of care at a cheaper cost.

Currently we don’t have that.

Thus far politicians have been unwilling to spend the political capital to take on the large corporations.

Indeed, they are puppets of the large corporations.

That’s the way it is.

And that’s why CalCare will fail.

Mother’s Medicine

My mother wants to tell you something.

She wasn’t a doctor, but that shouldn’t matter.

She should’ve been.

She could’ve been.

She could’ve taught those “fine” professors at the Mecca how to treat their students.

Had she been in charge, the first thing she would’ve done was tell many of them to go away.

Mom: If you can’t treat people nicely, why should you even be here?

She would have put a stop to their unwarranted and unsolicited condemnations.

Too many professors there believe in the whip.

Cruelty with a purpose. That’s what Trevor Howard, the ultimate British villain, the benchmark of British villains, playing Captain Bligh in the film Mutiny on the Bounty, said.

Those misguided professors believe that George S. Patton was correct in slapping that soldier in Italy around.

They really do. They believe that their humiliations and debasements will inspire their students to do better.

They are wrong.

My mom didn’t value smarts and know-it-all-ism as much as she did congeniality.

That is sadly missing in American healthcare today.

Indeed the current day Mecca drums the niceness out of doctors.

My mom must have understood on a certain level that arrogant doctors who scream and yell are often the doctors who make the most mistakes.

That’s what I noticed in my career.

I found that to be true in just about any field.

So if somebody treats me poorly, I walk away from that individual no matter how talented they are touted to be.

You have to treat people with respect.

Next in line would be hard work and diligence.

A doctor has to be thorough, diligent and hard working.

This is not valued in the Mecca today. Natural talent bums who wow the professors with esoteric facts are prized.

Worse than this, doctors who play Machiavellian tricks often win the day.

The professors value what they call roundsmanship.

Conniving gamesmanship would be a better term for it.

Students and residents are pitted against each other.

It’s a cockfight, and some professors revel in the bloodbath.

Style defeats substance. The professor, who is often buried within his research lab, can’t tell the difference between the bullshitters and the hard workers.

Or maybe he or she can.

The bullshitters come out ahead because they understand that rounds are a game. Plus they know how to answer questions that put themselves in the best possible light.

When I trained I had one fellow intern who would never say that he didn’t know. He was very clever. He would answer: I can’t answer that.

Isn’t that brilliant? He’s not saying that he doesn’t know. Yet at the time we all knew that he didn’t.

My mother believes, as I do, in hard work and honesty.

She wasn’t big on style.

Through her son she believes that rounds should be working rounds. In other words, jettison the beautiful presentation in favor of a working man’s approach to solving the days problems.

This is the true recapitulation of how a doctor works in the real world.

Get rid of group rounds which sets people up for humiliation and embarrassment. Very few students are learning from group rounds. They are too terrified.

You have to be fair to people also. That means you have to go the extra mile in putting your emotions aside when evaluating people.

Do the professors in academia do that today?

I’m not sure.

Many professors aren’t properly trained to do their jobs. Worse, there are a lot of part-time professors who don’t know a thing about education or evaluating people.

In fact, it is these part time professors who are the most dangerous.

You can’t wear two hats in life. You can’t be a practicing doctor and a good teacher at the same time. Nor can you be a researcher and a good teacher at the same time.

It’s not possible.

Let me be fair though. There are many good people there at the Mecca.

When I was in my first months of clinical rotation at University of Kansas I was having some difficulty in adjusting.

I had recently moved back to the United States and was having a difficult time coping.

It’s called culture shock in reverse. If you think going to a different country is tough, try coming back.

It’s difficult to return to the pristine nicety of the United States when you see how the other half of the world lives.

The experience transforms you.

One professor had given me what I thought was an unfair evaluation. It seemed to me that I wasn’t going to be able to pass the semester with that low grade. She had made it low enough so that it would be difficult for me to recover.

I was traumatized, so I decided to suspend my medical education for a bit.

Before I did though, I was able to talk to the acting Dean, James Lohman. I recounted my circumstances and what had transpired and my request to suspend my studies.

After carefully listening to me, he looked at me and asked one question: What is your support system here in Kansas City?

I wasn’t sure what he meant, so I asked him to clarify his question.

Well, he continued, do you have family here? Where are you living?

Since I had just transferred into the school, I told him I was living at the Holiday Inn. I told him that I didn’t have anybody here. I had no family here.

He didn’t have to make a comment after that.

With one incisive question he not only revealed to me what was going on but everything I needed to know to become a quality doctor.

This is the kind of doctor my mother would have approved of.

I knew surely as I speak these words now that there wasn’t anything that the University of Kansas could teach me that was more valuable than what he taught me that day.

To be a quality physician, you have to be empathetic, and you have to ask the right questions.

Knowing all the details and statistics about alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency and other esoteric diseases would have to take a backseat.

That was true then, and it is true today.

You can have all the facts and still miss the boat.

If we want to improve healthcare in the United States today we have to start with the medical schools and the kinds of people who are permitted to attend.

Currently the GPA and the MCAT score are used to measure the potential of a future doctor, but that in itself may be a poor measure.

What about empathy?

What about being a regular person who people can relate to?

Placing a premium upon GPA and MCAT score favors the malicious grade hound who will do anything to get a higher grade.

It also favors brainiacs and mathematicians, who may be over-represented in healthcare.

I tend to trust people who have studied biology and the life sciences.

Biology is a messy science. It’s an imprecise science. It’s filled with blood and guts. Biologists aren’t afraid of getting dirty. They aren’t afraid of imprecision either.

The field of medicine is too heavily weighted down by analytics, mathematics, P values, and Cox regression analysis. The people who embrace these methodologies tend to not like people. These are the kind of people who were running Sobibor.

My mother was a regular person. She was not a snob or an elitist. And she certainly did not instill in me any love for formality and pretense.

Formality and pretense are the hallmark of corrupt institutions.

Crooked people dress up to compensate for their crookedness. The mob dresses in a suit; Congress dresses in a suit; Wall Street dresses in a suit.

So do the officers of the Mecca.

They equate professionalism with fine dress.

My mother does not define professionalism by how well you dress.

Professionalism is better defined by how well you attend to your patients; how well you follow through; how well you listen to your patients.

The Mecca also believes in a formalistic, hierarchical methodology to teaching, learning and diagnosis.

Carol Linnaeus is their Jesus.

St. Carol the Dangerous codifies diseases into rigid categories; and these diseases in order to be diagnosed must be approached according to rules.

One, all symptoms and signs must be condensed according to Occam’s Razor or the Law of Parsimony. It’s impossible, according to orthodoxy, for people to have two things at the same time.

Two, you have to know precisely what you are looking for in order to order a test. No fishing around or hunches are permitted.

Three, a massive time-wasting differential diagnosis must be developed before proceeding to diagnose. According to orthodoxy you won’t consider all the available options in any other way but this way.

Four, diseases must be taught and diagnosed from the top down according to this bizarre classification scheme as pumped out by St. Carol and his successors.

This is not what my mother teaches. Of course my mother is not a physician, but she did inspire me.

Here is what my mother teaches:

Diseases, not classification schemes, come first.

Diseases do whatever the hell they want to do. They don’t follow any rules, and they haven’t read any books. They do what they do. They don’t even know who Carol Linnaeus is. Nor do they care. They consider him a loser and a third-rate piker.

People certainly do get two things or even three things at the same time.

It’s impossible to know everything that you are looking for in order to order a test. You’ll never be smart enough to figure everything out. The world is too vast. Diseases are too large in scope.

Skip the massive differential.

Diagnose from the bottom up, not the top down.

How do we do that?

By thinking practically, and by asking what tests will add value to our thinking or plan.

What do we want to know?

I used to call this a chef’s soup approach to diagnosis, but in honor of my mother who passed away yesterday, I am going to call it Mother’s Chicken Noodle Soup approach to diagnosis.

What will make Mom’s little boy or little girl better?

What will help Mom?

This seems to be a more humanistic way of diagnosing.

Yes, you are right, it lacks the precision that is taught at Harvard and MIT.

Since my mother does not approve of swearing, I will not say: So fucking what? I will say: So what?

MIT and Harvard are wrong, dead wrong.

Let’s start from the beginning. Suppose you see a rash on a patient’s face. Other than asking a basic routine history and physical, what would you do?

Would it be to your benefit to construct a massive differential diagnosis?

Do you have to know exactly what’s going in order to order anything?

The geniuses at Johns Hopkins think so.

Suppose you had no idea at all what was going on, what would you do?

Well, what did you do as a baby?

You cried for mommy.

That’s precisely what you need to do here. You need to call for help. In fact, the first thing that any medical student or resident needs to learn how to do is to call for help.

Indeed a medical student or a resident shouldn’t be allowed to write one single order unless they first make a phone call to a specialist for help.

That should be the first thing that a young doctor should learn.

Call for help.

This is ridiculed at the Mecca. If you wake that professor up he’s likely to chew you out or say: I would expect someone at your level to know this.

Nevertheless, the proper response is to call for help.

In this manner the young doctor learns that the fall back pitch is to call for help.

You don’t need to construct a massive differential in order to do that.

Let’s suppose though that you do know a few things. What would be the next step?

I don’t want to get too technical here, but let’s say that the rash is a pinpoint rash that does not blanch when you press on it. Let’s say that it looks like petechiae. Let’s say that it’s confined to the face.

Do you need to do a massive differential at this point? No.

You might be thinking that this rash is due to pressure from screaming. So you ask the patient whether they have been screaming, because when you ask a question, you are really ordering a test in a different form. It’s all information. Mom wants to know. Mom does not want you wasting your time and brain energy on nonsense.

The patient says: No.

The patient has also already said no to a basic set of questions that you have preliminarily asked in your history.

You might also ask whether there was any trauma, or whether they had put a band around their face or neck.

Maybe they were goofing around with a toy.

Assuming, that they were not, you might order a CBC to check for their platelet count.

Do you need a massive differential at this point? Not at all.

You don’t even need to know specifically what is going on.

Let’s say, though, that the platelets come back at 15,000. What are you going to do then?

What would I do?

I would order a different sort of test: I would go over my basic questions again, and I would redo the physical. I would check the spleen and the liver, I would check for lymph nodes, I would go over their medication history. I would carefully re-examine the skin on their body. I would especially want to know if there’s fever or has been fever.

I might even repeat the CBC.

Additionally, I am going to absolutely order another test: my fallback pitch. I’m going to call the hematologist and set up an appointment. I may admit the patient to the hospital.

And yet, I do not know specifically what is going on, nor do I need to know.

When the hematologist gets the patient, or when the hospitalist gets the patient, they will ask the same questions but proceed to a higher level. But they will go through the same steps.

Go away, Johns Hopkins.

Do you see what I am getting at, reader. It’s a colossal waste of time to approach a problem from the top down. Diseases do not follow rules. You cannot approach diagnosis or learning that way. It doesn’t work.

Think of diagnosing as a marble dropping down into a vertical maze of steel spikes sticking outward from a board. The spikes are your questions, physical exam, and tests. The marble will fall down and hit the first spike and move to either the right or the left. It will drop to the next level and hit another spike and again fall to the right or the left. Eventually it will reach the bottom which is where the diagnosis is. Sometimes the spikes repeat themselves at lower levels.

Your focus should be on not achieving a final diagnosis in your brain but in following the marble down to the bottom. Your focus should be on asking questions, doing a physical exam, and ordering tests.

You should not be emotionally invested in a final diagnosis from the beginning.

The traditional way, the academic way puts the cart before the horse. They want you to invest your emotional energy in a diagnosis. It’s very much like a player who focuses on winning the Super Bowl rather than taking the right steps that are required to win a Super Bowl.

Forget about the end result.

Now, this does not mean that you don’t take the time to learn about diseases and the characteristics of those diseases. You certainly do need to know how diseases present. You certainly do need to know the characteristics of various diseases. Knowing these diseases is what is going to allow you to ask the right questions.

Asking questions is important in healthcare.

There is no such thing as a dumb question, although you wouldn’t know it if you were trained in academia today.

Far too many academics laugh at people who ask dumb questions. They grade them down and laugh at them.

They’ll make a joke about the person and humiliate them in front of everyone. They have no tact.

Tact and agreeableness is important in life. You should never make people feel worthless.

That is important when dealing with students. Young students are like young seedlings in a garden. They are are fragile and need to be handled with care.

My mother’s name was Frances Ann Davis.

She could’ve been a doctor.

These are the kinds of things she believed in.

These are the values she taught me.

Gimmicks

Today I read that Republicans think that Afghanistan is equal to Benghazi times ten.

What the news is trying to tell us is that Republicans think that they can use the Afghanistan withdrawal issue to gain enough political capital to win back the Presidency and the Senate.

What’s the point?

Why should anyone vote for the Republicans when they did absolutely nothing when they had the Presidency, the House, and the Senate for two years between 2016 and 2018?

The Republicans didn’t do a damn thing.

My advice to Republicans (and the Democrats) would be to forget the gimmicks and stick to the basics.

The Afghanistan issue is a gimmick.

If you want to win a football game, follow the advice of Vince Lombardi and block and tackle better than your opposition. Forget about the trick plays if you’re not going to take care of the basics.

When it comes to politics the same type of advice is worth heeding. Forget about the gimmicks; stick to the basics and develop a program which will help the American people.

Solve a problem, motherfucker.

America needs substantive healthcare reform to provide affordable healthcare for its citizenry.

The best way to achieve that is to break up the large healthcare corporations into true competitors.

Doing so would give us better products, better hospitals, better insurance plans at a cheaper cost.

That’s not hard to do. It’s not hard to limit the size of corporations. All it takes is political will.

To provide the uninsured insurance, one would need to give a tax credit for healthcare insurance premiums and copays.

For those too destitute to afford any insurance at all, allow me, or a business, or a corporation, or any other individual to purchase healthcare insurance for an uninsured and receive a tax credit for doing so. Allow me a tax credit for paying for their co-pays also.

Overnight everyone in America would be insured.

It’s not difficult to do.

It’s only difficult when you don’t want to do it.

But when you do do it, you have to stick to the basics and quit wasting your time on gimmicks.

Unfortunately the Republican Party and it’s media mouthpieces, people like Sean Hannity, keep the majority of the voters focused on non-productive issues like the Afghanistan withdrawal issue.

It’s a waste of time.

It keeps us from moving forward.

It’s very much like a football team that runs a bunch of trick plays to compensate for its inadequacies.

Hopefully, someday, one of our political parties will get a coach who understands the game.

Right now, we’re on a losing streak.

The fans would like a few wins.

The Doctrine of Fauci

Welcome to our Kim Jong-un society.

Welcome to a society where the supreme leader is infallible and can hear your thoughts.

Welcome to a society where the elites can say anything they want and pass it off as truth.

They can do this because their smiling serfs cheer everything that they say.

We now live under the Doctrine of Fauci.

It’s a completely ridiculous doctrine, but we live under it nevertheless.

We live under it because there are so many serfs.

They are many, and we are few.

The Doctrine of Fauci says that facemasks work, that lockdowns work, and that vaccinated people are less likely to spread the coronavirus than unvaccinated people.

That’s the truth according to Fauci whether we like it or not.

There’s no convincing the certain serfs.

They know.

In their fallout chambers they call apartments, masked up and terrified, they know.

It’s settled science.

Just like global warming, just like acid rain caused by cow farts, just like the new Ice Age that was predicted 50 years ago, just like the end of the world in 12 years that was predicted 3 years ago, it’s settled science.

It’s settled science because Dr. Fauci says so, and everybody knows that Dr. Fauci is the nation’s top infectious disease expert.

Except that he isn’t.

That’s only something that Jim Acosta and Wolf Blitzer believe in.

We don’t elect top infectious disease experts in healthcare in the United States.

In fact, top infectious disease experts are at the top because they say wise things.

Dr. Fauci says unwise things.

Dr. Fauci says that hydroxychloroquine is dangerous.

Never mind the thousands of dermatologists and rheumatologists who have been using it safely for decades.

Dr. Fauci, a year ago said that herd immunity was almost impossible.

Well of course it is if you lock everybody up in their house.

But if you don’t lock everyone up in their house, and you allow the healthy to congregate with each other and share the virus, they will become immune and more likely to protect the elderly.

Herd immunity in the clinical world is a process not an end point. It is the progressive development of herd immunity that acts to protect the elderly. It works like a clasp knife. You slowly close the knife until you reach a critical point at which the knife suddenly snaps shut.

Herd Immunity works in this manner, only Dr. Fauci and the elites didn’t allow us to go down that path.

Children who are remarkably resilient to the disease are an important part of that herd immunity.

Dr. Fauci allowed corporate media to promote the myth that children were at risk. This was untrue. Children were never at any serious risk of dying from COVID-19 as you are currently now seeing.

Dr. Fauci and his frothing cheerleaders say that ivermectin doesn’t work.

OK.

Then it doesn’t.

Except that it is a valuable adjunctive medicine in the armamentarium against COVID-19.

Dr. Fauci says that super-spreader events can occur when people get together for a picnic.

He says that these events cause infection by respiratory droplet transmission.

Except that they don’t occur that way.

Super-spreader events occur because people don’t wash their hands.

The facemask is worthless.

The guests at Amy Coney Barrett’s reception got COVID-19 most likely because they shook hands and then ate hors d’oeuvres without washing their hands first.

In the background of her reception, the American flag was gently moving at about 2 to 3 mph (about 2.9 to 4.4 feet per second). This means that almost all of the coughed and sneezed viruses would have quickly dispersed through the atmosphere.

It’s very unlikely that a sneezed virus would make a beeline into someone else’s trachea and overcome the non-adaptive immune defenses of that individual.

Handwashing was what was needed.

If we’d had a top infectious disease expert, he would’ve promoted a first rate handwashing campaign instead of the silly face mask.

Never mind that though.

Never mind the fact that we could’ve been through with this pandemic with 150,000 US dead had we not done a lockdown, had we not engaged in the facemask, had we not opposed any reasonable medicines that might’ve helped people.

What’s most important is that Dr. Fauci is right and that the serfs have someone to cheer for.

Dr. Fauci’s infallibility must be maintained otherwise the emaciated serfs might lose heart and die.

Appearances are now everything.

Just like in North Korea.

Welcome to our Kim Jong-un society.

Sincerely,

Getting Rid of Coronavirus

How would you like to be rid of COVID-19?

It’s not difficult at all to accomplish. Yet it is.

The advice I’m giving is the same advice I gave many months ago. It’s not difficult to do. It’s not rocket science.

It’s the advice that every species has followed since the beginning of time, with a few modifications, of course. Not all species have hands. Nor do they have selfish Harvard graduates wrecking their society.

1. Deport all the Harvard and prestigious school graduates and their puppets. These people will only spread misinformation and lead you down the path toward fascism. They are misguided people who are all about themselves. They don’t give two flips about you. Deport the politicians also. They are followers. They have no imagination and no spine to stand on their own. Most politicians are happy go lucky Pollyannas who will lead you straight into the gas chamber.

2. Recognize that COVID-19 is a disease that primarily kills the elderly over 65 years of age. For that reason, the elderly must be protected to the extreme. So most the medically vulnerable be protected. They must be sequestered away while the rest of the community adheres to the following measures.

3. You must aggressively comingle children and healthy young to middle-aged adults. This is going to take some guts because of the extensive misinformation and poor programming that has gone into your psyche. Dr. Fauci and other psychotic Ivy League fascists have intentionally misled you. Set up sports leagues and communal activities for kids. Encourage young adults to go to bars. Open up the sporting events. Engage in all the activities that the elites have shut down. Do this aggressively over a six to eight week period of time. Remember, the elderly and medically vulnerable must be completely sequestered away. It is possible to do it when you know that you need to do it.

4. Normally, I would tell you to wash your hands in order to fend off disease, but this is a disease that we do not want to fend off in the short run. We want young people to get the disease and become immune in order to protect the elderly in the long run. This disease is not spread by respiratory transmission in the sense of traveling from mouth-to-mouth; it is spread by fomites and hand to hand contact (after a person coughs on their hands) in conjunction with the failure to wash hands prior to eating. Consequently, for these six to eight weeks people should not wash their hands before eating ; at the same time the sequestered and medically vulnerable absolutely should wash their hands. Now, a warning: The number of respiratory infections, including COVID-19, will increase in kids and adults. There is no way to avoid that; that is the price that must be paid to rid ourselves of COVID-19.

5. Get rid of your face mask. The face mask only slows down the transmission of the infection which is what you don’t want.

And now let me explain the rationale.

Engaging in this methodology will shut down the infection and cause less deaths because of a clasp-knife effect. When you aggressively move toward herd immunity, the infection rate will shut down more quickly just as a knife snaps shut after it reaches a critical point.

The immoral motherfuckers from Harvard University (and their cocksucking puppets) know this, which is why they encouraged the face mask, which is why they shut down the bars, restaurants, gyms, churches and every other communal activity. Their goal was to transform what should have been a one and done pandemic into a slow indolent infection. They did this so as to increase the fear so that they could implement their crazy worker’s paradise which includes a society-destroying universal basic income. They also wanted to shut down the churches because the principles of Jesus Christ get in the way of their secular religion of money, power and intolerance.

This is why you must find a way to rid yourself of the influence of the Harvard graduate and his fellow traveler. Ditto to the utterly stupid mathematics-obsessed epidemiologists and infectious disease experts.

Follow the same advice for any subsequent strain of COVID-19 unless of course the mortality rates change and it starts killing young people and young adults to a degree approaching the elderly. But be wary of the Harvard graduate who may exploit this to his or her advantage. These people will never stop. They revealed who they were the day they matriculated at Harvard. They desire to be the best and the brightest and above everyone else. They are like the nobles of England and those pigs who attend unenlightened elitist universities like Oxford. Their goal is to make you a serf in perpetuity.

This is a war, my friend. They know it, but you don’t. That is why they’re winning.

When you have conquered COVID-19, you must destroy Harvard University and all schools considered prestigious. Harvard University must be pulverized into dust never to rise again. It’s existence, past, present, and future must be nullified.

Its graduates must be banned from the government and leadership in all corporations and associations for the rest of their lives.

They must not be harmed. Their punishment must be a lifetime of shame. Give them the life they intended for you; give them a universal basic income, public housing, public medical care, and public food in a controlled environment in which they do not have to work a day in their lives.

It matters not whether they were in on the game. They went along with it. Following orders is not an excuse.

Sincerely,

Supermarket Doctors

Why are supermarkets giving vaccines?

Well of course these aren’t just any old supermarket; these are supermarkets with pharmacies.

Oh, I see. It all makes sense now. Nothing to see here, keep moving. It’s all legit.

Hey honey, can you pick me up some COVID-19 vaccine on your way home? I also need some broccoli.

The last time I checked, a vaccine was a foreign substance injected into the human body.

Shouldn’t the administration of that vaccine require a physician’s judgment, especially if it’s a substance that has not been subjected to rigorous scrutiny?

It makes sense to me.

Of course, pharmacies have been giving vaccines for years.

But should they?

In the long run, it probably doesn’t matter because most physicians are on board the government’s program when it comes to vaccine administration.

But what if they weren’t?

What if many doctors gave a particular vaccine because they were obligated to do so, but when asked by their patients whether they should take the vaccine they expressed reservations?

Is that something that would be helpful to their patient’s health?

It might be.

Would we be likely to have those reservations expressed at a supermarket pharmacy?

Generally, the pharmacist at these supermarket pharmacies is an employee of a corporation. Consequently I would expect the pharmacist to reflect the opinion of the corporation.

Is that what we want?

There was a time in the state of Texas when the corporate practice of medicine was banned.

It was banned because our wise antecedents desired doctors and other healthcare providers to offer impartial, independent device.

Wise leaders of old didn’t want giant corporations telling healthcare providers how to practice medicine.

This was done in order to put the patient’s interest first, not the corporation’s bottom line.

The problem we have in our society today is that our pharmacies are largely controlled by giant corporations.

The same people who control the giant corporations also control the government.

For the most part they are college chums who frequently meet together in think tanks and corporate boardrooms in Washington, New York, Philadelphia and Boston.

So what we have in the United States is an oligarchy recommending a vaccine to be delivered via a compliant administrative machinery that is also controlled by that oligarchy.

In other words a few people are recommending and delivering a vaccine to you.

This same oligarchy also controls the media who will sell the benefits of the vaccine alongside the risks for not vaccinating.

Fear and hope are powerful motivators.

Used car salesman use this technique all the time. If you don’t buy by Friday, the price goes up.

We humans are the consummate suckers.

I wonder if dogs are this dumb.

A survey I conducted in my office tells me that almost 2/3 of the people will vaccinate with the as yet undelivered and not fully scrutinized COVID-19 vaccine.

Big surprise.

I suspect that the vast majority of these people will get their vaccines at an H-E-B pharmacy in the state of Texas.

My gut tells me that the government will bypass regular physicians – who may express reservations.

I suspect this because I have not been contacted with regard to issuing this new COVID-19 vaccine. I did sign up to deliver the vaccine, but no one has contacted me in a month.

My experience with the influenza vaccine tells me that large corporate pharmacies like Walgreens and H-E-B receive as many flu vaccines as their heart desires while private offices like mine get one chance prior to the flu season to order the vaccine.

What do I think of all this?

I think we are skating on thin ice.

I think that humanity is dumb. We can never seem to learn lessons permanently.

We forget lessons from the past.

Independent doctors serve as an important independent check on big government, big corporations, media hysteria and irrational exuberance.

We are going to learn that lesson the hard way.

Sincerely,

Curing a Psychosis

How do you cure a psychosis? This is a relevant question in the age of COVID-19.

NYC just closed down its school system for children.

NYC did this in the face of hard data which demonstrates that children are amazingly impervious to the adverse effects of COVID-19.

In fact it is the children who, when allowed to commingle, will protect the elderly this year and next year.

What madness is this?

This madness is taking on a life of its own and has spread to the citizenry who have been scared and stampeded it into decisions that are hurting the country and its inhabitants.

The politicians lead the way.

But the politicians are not solely to blame. They reflect the will of the people.

The will of the people is created by the various media outlets in the Northeast.

New Yorkers are good people. It’s not their fault that they have been programmed.

Most people who grow up and live in the Northeastern Gulag are programmed. It is only those of us who have escaped the Gulag who have come to see that we were indoctrinated too.

There is a steady drumbeat of maternal totalitarian thinking that emanates from the principal newspapers in the Northeast. Those papers are the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the New Yorker magazine, the Village Voice to name a few.

As long as this drumbeat continues to dominate New Yorkers’ minds, lockdowns and face masks are inevitable.

There seems to be little point in reasoning with these afflicted people, for if we reason with afflicted people, then we are mad for trying to do so.

All of this brings us back to where we started from which is: How do we cure a psychosis?

There seems to be no end in sight.

Nevertheless, there is always hope. Things are never as good or as bad as they seem to be.

First, let us not panic and call New Yorkers delusional. Afflicted people don’t believe they are delusional, so calling them such won’t do any good. It might make matters worse.

Second, let’s understand that people who are psychotic have fixed, false beliefs.

We can debate these false beliefs ad infinitum, but that misses the point. The point is that these beliefs, whatever they are, are repeated in a loop until they are fixed. The beliefs are exclusionary of anything contrary to what they espouse.

In the case of COVID-19, these beliefs are established and promoted by a main stream media.

An orthodoxy exists.

As long as the citizens of New York are exposed to this programming, they will continue to support the kind of thinking that leads to a lockdown and a shutdown of the schools.

The thinking of the citizens of New York is not illogical, but totally logical.

If you repeatedly tell New Yorkers that face masks work, that lockdowns work, that social distancing will solve the problem, that vaccines are right around the corner, then New Yorkers going to support a shut down of the schools.

So then, is the solution to tell them the opposite?

That would seem to be the logical thing to do; however, that approach has not succeeded.

Why has that approach – let’s call it the truth – not worked?

Principally because the same people who are indoctrinating New Yorkers into a particular way of thought are also indoctrinating them into thinking that anyone who opposes them is a dangerous nut.

So when you tell New Yorkers that they are delusional, you are reinforcing the wisdom of the authorities who have programmed New Yorkers to act the way that they do.

A different approach is therefore in order.

By telling New Yorkers that they are crazy is not doing us or New Yorkers good but is instead making us feel good.

It’s time to do good.

A better approach would be to say nothing and to do nothing while removing the noxious programming.

If we can convince New Yorkers to stop listening to the news, stop watching mainstream media, stop reading the New York Times and other establishment newspapers, then we stand a chance.

This could be accomplished either through cessation of activity or replacement of the coronavirus issue with something more productive.

We don’t have to offer any contrary point of view. New Yorkers are smart enough to figure out the truth on their own.

Their own common sense and reasoning will come to dominate and replace their nonproductive thinking.
