COVID-19


It might be helpful if the situation regarding pharmaceutical research be revisited.

Bringing any vaccine or drug to market is very expensive and it’s only getting worse. As products hit the market there are teams of lawyers who hope to cash in by getting you ‘what you deserve’ when they don’t work as well as advertised. I realize that Big Pharma gouges with prices, I realize that free enterprise isn’t free. But when something goes wrong for the general population, people always look to those private companies for unique and innovative solutions NOW.

-Mutation?  

Doctors working on the front lines of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak have told the Taiwan Times that it’s possible to become reinfected by the virus, leading to death from sudden heart failure in some cases.
“It’s highly possible to get infected a second time. A few people recovered from the first time by their own immune system, but the meds they use are damaging their heart tissue, and when they get it the second time, the antibody doesn’t help but makes it worse, and they die a sudden death from heart failure,” reads a message forwarded to Taiwan News from a relative of one of the doctors living in the United Kingdom.
The source also said the virus has “outsmarted all of us,” as it can hide symptoms for up to 24 days. This assertion has been made independently elsewhere, with Chinese pulmonologist Zhong Nanshan (???) saying the average incubation period is three days, but it can take as little as one day and up to 24 days to develop symptoms.
Also, the source said that false negative tests for the virus are fairly common. “It can fool the test kit – there were cases that they found, the CT scan shows both lungs are fully infected but the test came back negative four times. The fifth test came back positive.” –Taiwan Times 
Notably, one of the ways coronaviruses cripple the immune system is via an HIV-like attachment to white blood cells, which triggers a ‘cytokine storm‘ – a term popularized during the avian H5N1 influenza outbreak – in which an uncontrolled release of inflammatory ‘cytokines’ target various organs, often leading to failure and in many cases death.
How much is Too Much?
I like axes. I like tomahawks (weapons) and hatchets. I like mauls. What’s not to like about tools that do useful jobs? But is this taking a good thing to an extreme?
Do You Feel the Bern?
A lot of the bros feel as if the big win for Sanders’ National Socialist Workers is being snatched by billionaire Democrat and former Republican Mini-Mike Bloomberg. To date, Bloomberg has outspent Bernie Sanders by $400 million.
And what if Mayor Pete becomes the nominee? Will he invite Sanders to join the ticket as his VP so that BUTTBERN can sail on to victory in November?

  1. The axe definitely mutated…into fantasy land.

    An examination of weapons in history will show fighting men do not like tools that can get tangled up in the heat of the moment, be it a useless appendage on an axe or an open birdcage flash hider, or loose laces on a boot.

  2. Bernie got screwed by the DNC in 2016, when they rigged the nomination process in favor of the Old Crone. Lots of Bernie Bros felt disenfranchised. What happens this time around, when the DNC, totally broke as usual, takes Mini Mike money and throws Bernie under the bus again?

    I am unsure that the Democrat Party as we know it today can survive. Those Bernie Bros have already promised to burn down Milwaukee unless communism rules.

    And I am pretty confident that Bernie voters will not, under any circumstances, vote for the guy that screwed The Bern out of his second nomination chances, no way no how. They will stay home, or even vote for Trump in protest.

    Either way, FOUR MORE YEARS.

  3. I've seen a couple of really spooky videos of people walking down the street just dropping in place. Supposedly the second time around on the virus and really nasty if true.
    Starting to see a few cracks in the dike, so to speak, as far as cases over here. Washington state is watching 700 right now that have exposure and the Florida health dept is making a bunch of people nervous by refusing to say anything at all about anything…which is an abnormality and instant red flag. It will get here eventually, I suspect. In the short term, supply chain interruptions will provide the sheeple a warning that will irritate them and that they will ignore.

  4. coronavirus (COVID-19)is scary for a lot of reasons.
    A simple little hawk is all I want. Agree with Raven, all that curly stuff is going to cause more trouble than it fixes.
    As long as we vote and win another four more years, I don't much care what happens to the dems.

  5. Nobody knows where COVID-19 came from. I speculate that it originated as an accidental release from the Wuhan bug factory. But when you look at the reaction to the situation, it's not the typical 'cold and flu season'.

    The supply chain worldwide and China's place in it will change as a result of COVID-19 (and possible mutations). Business doesn't like to have its pants pulled down in China and that's what has been happening – to Apple and others.

  6. It would also be nice to have a Republican majority in the House. That majority was squandered by Paul Ryan primarily. Hopefully it's not run by RINO's.

  7. That axe looks like a good conversation piece.

    I agree with you. Republican majority; but RINOs are hard to spot.

  8. The axe seems like it might be sort of fragile.

    If it isn't actually fragile, it seems like it would be really hard to clean the bits of people you hate off of, after.

    -Kle.

  9. You'd need some brushes, soap and then Balisol or Froglube to seal it after you've cleaned off all the gore. But you're right. Lots of nooks and crannies.
