I’ve been afk this week, I realize, hoping for inspiration. What follows is just a rundown of the things going on with me, of no particular interest to anyone, of course. If you had a blog, you could do this too! I urge you to make a blog. I’ll be happy to link to you.
Microsoft Edge: Now and then as I am working here on the desktop, I find that the path is unfamiliar and that I am logged out, for instance, of this blog. Then I utter the words under my breath “Goddamned Microsoft!” It was more than ten years ago that I switched over to Firefox from whatever browser Microsoft was offering then. I did so because the company back doors its whole application, tracks your activity, and looks for advertising opportunities, mostly. I am not doing anything subversive – in fact, I am an open book. I go to well-known websites, never look at anything pornographic (OK, I did watch Game of Thrones), and quickly get out of any application that might force me to look at advertising.

As a care provider for high-functioning disabled people, I workwith clients in their homes and am mostly unsupervised. One of my clients, concerned about ordinary sniffles, went to a convenience clinic for a covid test and received a “positive” result. My immediate supervisor texted me saying I needed to get tested too. I texted back a polite no. An hour later, the next-in-command texted me with the same message: I “needed” to get tested. My response was even more polite. “I’m sorry, but I’m not going to do that.” At the time, I was at the client’s house, so I asked the supervisor if I needed to leave. I was prepared to get fired. He didn’t respond, but twenty minutes later, my immediate supervisor texted me on an unrelated matter, as if nothing had happened.

In my defense:
If you are reading this, I have offered it to you in self-defense. I am unvaccinated and will stay that way for as long as humanly possible. The pressure to vax comes from above, around, and below. I am told that I am harming others, spreading a virus, and that the hospitals are filled with unvaccinated people. None of this is true. I do not imagine that I am smarter than my accusers, only that I have spent my time these past 21 months trying to understand the nature of viruses and bacteria, illnesses, and contagion. Nothing is as I first imagined on 3/11/20, the day we were told there was a worldwide “pandemic.”

I draw your attention to a comment by XS that elaborates on an inadequate presentation on virus “isolation” as presented in my previous post. I’ve always been challenged to get my arms around the subject.
This happened to coincide with the reason I sat down here. Some time ago I was listening to an hilarious podcast wherein Conan O’Brien hosted Kevin Nealon. The two were on top of their games and the back and forth was priceless. I am not gonna link to it as it would take too much effort to find it again but if you are inclined to go to a podcast called “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend.” There are more than 100 podcasts there. At a certain point O’Brien mentions to Nealon that he was given credit for being a comedian at some source, I’ve forgotten where. Nealon responds “at least they say I’m a comedian.” O’Brien responds “Oh, the word was in quotation marks.”

This post is experimental. I am using Nuance Dragon software that allows me to speak and write at the same time. This is a newer version that I just purchased yesterday that coordinates very nicely with Firefox, allowing me to use the same software as always when writing a blog post, but while dictating rather than keyboarding. I am wearing what looks like an oven mitten on my right hand, so that the only digits available to me are the index and thumb of that hand. Apparently the hand is going to be out of commission for at least a couple of weeks, so this software is coming in incredibly handy.
I refer you to a paper entitled Statement On Virus Isolation (SOVI) written by Sally Fallon Morell, Thomas Cowan, MD, and Andrew Kaufman, MD. The concepts in this paper should be familiar to everyone here, so this is an exercise in formatting and using various tools offered by WordPress. I will quote the opening section.

With Halloween arriving, it’s that spooky time of year. So, why not speak about a bit of spookery in relation to COVID? There’s plenty of spookdom to go around when it comes to the pandemic tale, but I will focus on just one aspect — having to do with the village of Haslemere in the Surrey region of the United Kingdom.
In this March 2020 article, “Bizarre coincidence between Haslemere coronavirus cases and BBC programme that started fake ‘pandemic’ in town,” the author, Alex Boyd, repeatedly noted some spooky coincidences. As the title implies, there was a simulated virus contagion experiment in 2018 that took place in the town of Haslemere, followed by the “real” reporting in February 2020 that the first case of coronavirus transmission within the UK occurred in Haslemere — resulting in the temporary closing of the Haslemere Health Centre for a “deep clean.”
Boyd disclosed,“The outbreak in the Surrey town has drawn spooky comparisons to the programme ‘Contagion: The BBC Four Pandemic’, which aired in March 2018 . . . Designed as a digital experiment to ‘help plan for when the next deadly virus comes to the UK’, Dr Hannah Fry was ‘patient zero’ and used Haslemere as the place to launch the outbreak . . . It set out to answer questions on how quickly it would spread, how many it could kill and what could be done about it, using a smartphone app to monitor the simulated virus after starting it in Haslemere.” Boyd continued in this vein when quoting a tweet from Twitter, “Spookily, that’s precisely where the first person was diagnosed to have caught #coronavirus in the UK (my emphasis).”
Do readers consider this spooky, or is this simply Revelation of the Method — written by spooks?

Just so you know, I inserted the banner words “We Are Morons”in to the demonstration and group photo of an Extinction Rebellion ‘rally.’ It was also the working title for this piece, which I forgot to change before publishing. The Extinction Rebellion group is so pessimistic that the word “rally” seems inappropriate. “Funeral” or cavalcade of mourners would be a better description.
They are wrong. We are not headed for a sixth great extinction, at least one within our control. The planet routinely undergoes collisions with foreign bodies, and that has led to great tragedies. I think that is hidden somewhere in our collective psyches, and that might be the reason that Immanuel Velikovsky was so vilified. Routine human disasters as he described are forbidden knowledge. Mike Baillee in his book New Light on the Black Death*** calculated that we endure a major catastrophe involving an asteroid every 300 years or so. That’s a huge problem, one we ought to be studying. That could lead to extinction of species and … even climate change.

Two days ago we received the following comment from Beata:
You are the first person I came across who suggested that Mullis probably met with an untimely demise. I thought about it soon after the PCR tests became the gold standard of covid diagnosis. My intuition told me that they got rid of him because he would talk and their entire scam would have been uncovered too soon to take hold.
It is probably not wise to make conjectures based on no evidence, or flimsy evidence, and I certainly have none to back up my suspicion that Mullis was murdered. I have only this: In the AIDS debate he was a turd in the punch bowl. He comes off as an honest, if somewhat odd man, kind of a Doc Brown of chemistry. He could easily be ridiculed and marginalized if he had not invented PCR and won a Nobel Prize for it (along with Michael Smith). He had gravitas.

In early August, I drove from Bozeman to Missoula, Montana to attend a federal court hearing before Magistrate DeSoto. I’ve been at many hearings over the almost four decades of fighting to protect native fish and wildlife habitat on public land managed by the U.S. Forest Service-USDA. As so often is the case, our (plaintiffs) argument centered around the ill effects of roads and clear-cut logging on elk and grizzly bear populations. Because there are no laws to protect most animal species that live in national forests, the elk and bears serve as proxies in many of these court battles. Our dependence on machines and capitalism are the primary underlying obstacles preventing proper consideration for all lifeforms when forest management decisions are made. This is my opinion. I am not a scientist, journalist or lawyer.
There aren’t many journalists that cover these hearings, so I’ll simply suggest reading Laura Lunquist’s excellent article explaining the details of the case. https://missoulacurrent.com/outdoors/2021/10/judges-ninemile-lolo/
My friend and colleague, Mike Garrity is quoted in the article expressing our frustration at the serial lawbreaking:

I’ve spent a great deal of time between January of 2020 and now trying to understand the PCR process. I know in my family’s experience that PCR released a man who spent 15 years in prison, wrongfully accused, and got him a $3.5 million settlement from the State of Montana not for wrongful prosecution, but rather for malicious prosecution, that is, the people who framed him knew he was innocent. PCR set him free. It took samples from the crime scene and compared them to the man in prison, and found them to be from different people.
PCR also found the guilty party, a man arrested on drug charges who plea bargained and agreed to submit DNA as part of that bargain. His DNA matched that at the crime scene, concluding that that man, and no one else on this planet, was at the crime scene that night. He walked free due to statute of limitations. Other criminals were involved as well, who walked free on statute, certain people who remained silent knowing the man in the first paragraph above was innocent. So it goes.
