And the ‘rona moves on

It is Sunday night. Almost exactly one week ago, late in the night of last Sunday, the first symptoms of Covid19 showed up in my life. The timing was sort of a bummer, as this weekend was boomershoot, and I would have been driving over Thursday and camping out. I decided the wisest course of action was to not stress myself, and to not possibly spread it to others or even make them nervous when they were off having a good time whacking boomers, so I stayed home.

The ‘rona comes to visit

The daughter-unit came home early yesterday not feeling well. Several of her co-workers are out with covid. She did the quick home test, it said positive. She threw up not long afterword. Got a little food and ivermectin in her. Her lab test results came back today and also said positive. She’s already feeling a bit better, and is just chilling in bed.

Also, this afternoon, the wife-unit wasn’t feeling great so she did the home test, it also came back negative, but she’s sure it’s only a matter of time before she gets a positive. Ah, bummer. Well, we know the drill. She can work from home if she has the energy for it.

Boy-child and I feel fine, taking ivermectin and upping the vitamins just in case. We are obviously going to be exposed, but with fairly regular D3 and zinc and the rest of it prior to this, and with pretty much all the rest of the treatment protocol already in hand https://covid19criticalcare.com/covid-19-protocols/i-mask-plus-protocol/ , we should be fine and get through it quickly.

Later edit (in response to first few comments): I think I’ll be OK. That’s just most of it, not all of it. Go Team Pony Paste! The half-liter bottle is enough for ~16 people, full course.

Later Edit II:
figured I should test, so I have evidence that the I-mask protocol works. yup. Took less than 90 seconds for those lines to show up. Stable like that at 15 min, through 30 min. This was Wednesday, around 11 AM, less than 72 hours since onset of symptoms, back to 80%+ health; son, who had symptoms show up about 12 hours before mine, claims to be nearly all good (call it 95% or so).

Later Edit III:
Fist symptoms Sunday night, pretty classic flu stuff. Thermal dysregulation, a bit of cough, aches, low energy, slight fever, loose stool. Max symptom severity by Tuesday morning, noticeable improvement by evening, mostly good by Wed night (72hours), and back to ~95% by Thursday noon (call it 3.5 days). Will test tonight to see if I’m officially negative, yet. Talking to daughter about her co-workers, most of them are back to work in a week to 10 days, testing negative but still feeling crappy for a while, while she’s fine. Not rigorous data, but a couple of data-points to consider.

Constitutional Amendments

A common social studies class assignment, after spending a far-too-brief time studying our own constitution,  is to ask the students for proposed amendment to correct perceived shortcomings in our legal system. Most of them are laughably bad, of course, as most students don’t really understand how the parts of it work together, don’t appreciate the freedoms it recognizes, nor the actions of unintended consequences when there are  changing incentives. So, here are a couple of mine. Feel free to add your own thoughts. Continue reading Constitutional Amendments

The Constitution’s Seven Money Clauses

In an essay by DEAN CLANCY, we take a closer look at what money is, what the US Constitution says about money, and why it is important to today’s political events. About a ten minute read. a number of things I’ve not seen discussed elsewhere before.

There are a couple of angels on things there that are first for me, such as : “5. Fiat money notes (‘bills of credit’) are forbidden.” Equating fiat money with bills of credit is interesting.

Overall, well worth a read if you are into money or politics.

FWIW, at the current price of silver, $20 in constitutional dollars of silver is worth about $380 in Federal Reserve Notes.

 

The connection between CRT and the trans/gay agenda

Some things, such as optical illusions, can hard to see at first, but once seen are clear. I came across a very clearly written post that connects some of the political / activist left’s action plan in a way that makes a whole lot of sense. The scariest part of it is that most of the average people pushing each of these things are basically good, well-meaning people, they will not see it, and think they are unrelated, and have no idea how much damaged they are doing. I’m including the full text as well as the links to the original posts, as it is more than likely one or both at some point will get nuked at some point.

The original Gab that lead me to it. The source thread. Continue reading The connection between CRT and the trans/gay agenda

200 YT

HA! Found a copy of the full text of “200 Years Together” in English, by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. All of its nearly 8.5″ x 11″ 800 pages.

It is also at the Internet Archive, here. They also have the redacted version there, which is missing some 300 or so pages.

The Russian-language version is available in book form, but there has been a lot of pressure in certain circles to omit several parts in any English version because they reflect badly on certain ethnic groups. Inaccuracy is never shown by said ethnic groups, only that it highlights their actions and apparent motives in ways that most members of Western Civilization would find their actions and motives damning. Some people are offended by a factually accurate portrayal of reality, and try to bury it rather than atone or change or deal. I prefer my history honest and uncut, messy, and full of the flawed men and women who were actually there, so we may learn it’s lessons properly.

Wheat

Turkey is NATO for some odd reason. They get most of their wheat from Russia.

Given:

  • The current tiff between Russia and Ukraine
  • March is normally planting time for UKR wheat
  • Harvests in China have totally sucked the last few years
  • The wheat harvest in the PNW sucked hard last year
  • China would gladly buy all Russian wheat
  • World wheat stockpiles are down
  • US grain bins are not exactly overflowing
  • Russia is one of the largest exporters of fertilizer in the world, and that is likely to be disrupted so many foreign harvests will be down even if weather is perfect
  • The value of AUS and Argentine (major southern hemisphere exporters now harvesting) wheat is up, but actual tonnage increase is nowhere near enough to make up the different in production/demand imbalance

I would expect food prices, even of staples, to soar. Meanwhile the Green agenda has us burning many tons of corn in our gas tanks.
