The Pale Blue Dot

Earth and Moon from Mars: NASA

From the Surface of Mars, a NASA shot.

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor, and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there–on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” — Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994



There are a lot of Mysteries in the Universe

The Department of Defense dutifully enacted Biden’s vaccine mandate and had what eventually morphed into “zero tolerance” policies for service members requesting religious exemptions or who had already had COVID19.

How It’s Going:

Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, has contracted COVID-19 and has isolated himself following a positive test, military officials said Monday.  This must mean he actually never was vaxed, right?

The Marine Corps announced separately that Commandant David Berger had also tested positive, the Military Times and The Washington Post reported.

Another of the “sophisticated and vaccinated” is now added to a growing list of those who have been infected. It’s shocking.

Imagine being a professional persecutor of the unvaxed, standing on the ground that your vaccination protected you and SLAP – you have the plague.


  1. The vaxxed getting the rona…poetic justice or the karma bus take your pick.

    I am at a loss a bit here. When I look at the data; 99.7% overall survival rate for those that catch it, approximately 11% of the US population will catch it, VAERS reports out the wazoo of negative side effects. Can still catch and transmit COVID even if you are vaccinated. Why is everyone so hell bent on the vaccine? I just do not understand, am I missing something?
    Pale blue dot, looks even more insignificant if you look at the picture to scale from Mars. Two tiny dots that don’t even show a disk and that is all of humanity. We have got to keep growing out of the gravity well. Might only be to earth orbit or maybe the moon for the next few years but we have to stop living on a single point of failure.

    • with you ed, it can’t just be money. they have made a mint several times over now. wife and i agree, must be more to the vax itself. guess it’ll come out eventually. they seem willing to risk it all to get us vaxxed. makes no sense at all unless the payoff is somehow worth it to them, but what could it be?

      • RR not only the “people in charge”. I wasn’t as clear as I could have been in my original blurb. I was writing about people that I have personally known for years and, in the past, valued their opinion. They look at the same information I look at and form entirely opposite end of the spectrum conclusions than I do and those opinions are very strongly held. I know some pretty knowledgeable medical professionals who think the whole COVID thing is a scam and some who think we are all gonna die (minor exaggeration but not much). I am not planning on changing my position unless a massive amount of new data crops up but sure wish I understood where they were coming from.

        • Covid-19 is real. Some (few) people react very badly to it (and not only the old, the morbidly obese, and those with a metric f*tonne of “comorbidities”), but most people do just fine after an unpleasant illness. But rather than trying to identify risk factors for a bad response, TPTB have gone for mass “vaccination”. I think this is a bad approach, but then again I’m a known “hate thinker”. I’m also a product of a prestigious US med school, residency, and two solid fellowships, and am academically active as a researcher and as a reviewer of papers and grants, but those don’t count apparently because The Narrative.

          Yes, we all ARE going to die, but not from the coof. I believe that for the average person, the mRNA vaxx is about as harmful as getting the coof. I’m against mass “treatment” with the Pfizer/BioNTech or the Moderna jabs.

          Finally, just because someone is an MD, even a respectable specialist, doesn’t mean they understand squat about the coof and the Jabs. This includes me, by the way. But I look at how the mRNA jabs work, and they actively promote the very things that I as a cardiologist want most earnestly to prevent (thrombophilia and endothelial dysfunction).

        • A lot more here than meets the eye, and could be we’ll see the effects before November. Far too many are having seriously bad reactions to the mRNA injection, many are dying. When did we ever hear about myocarditis? Now kids are tragically dying from it. Kids!? Top athletes keeling over on the field. Bizarre results while the reprobates in charge continue to push the vax DNA manipulator crapola like it’s medical nirvana, which it clearly is not…except for Big Pharma, who have made billions. Palin was mocked when she said they were planning death panels, only now they’ve eliminated the panel part, just force everyone to take a mystery shot.

        • yes ed, i too have wondered about that. have lost many friends over this thing and watched a previously vibrant world travelling couple devolve into shut-ins afraid to leave the house or even have visitors. sad.

    • Hugh Ross’s book, Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, describes our home well, including the small time frame when it can support us.

  2. as for milley vanilli and friend, well serves you right. i try not to wish ill on others but those two make it difficult to stick to that. i wonder what bob saget died of. that story sure went quiet quick didn’t it? ….pale blue dot? i always wonder how many of those dust specks floating around in the sunbeam coming thru the window are really inhabited worlds. how many billion souls have we destroyed just by cleaning the house?

  3. Better get vaxxed, troops, to stop you getting Covid or you’ll get fired! Except that it won’t stop you getting Covid. That’s why you have to trust us, because of our superior leadership and reasoning capabilities.
    In an earlier age, without the internet, it would’ve been easier for them. Now even the lowliest private has a smartphone.

    • Satan is running at redline these days, and loving every minute of it. “Blind as a bat” doesn’t hold with this, at leasts bats have the ability to not willfully run headlong into unmovable objects that will cause direct harm.

  4. As I write this, my wife is in an Intensive Care Unit in a Banner Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona with Covid in both lungs.
    She is not on a ventilator and wil hopefully not need one. Things are very bad, but stable at present.
    When I asked what she is being prescribed, I was told remdesivir and steroids (Effectively…not much.).
    When I asked about Ivermectin, I was told the following:
    “Banner Health will not prescribe or allow their employees to prescribe Ivermectin, or allow Ivermectin to be administered on their property even if prescribed by an unassociated doctor.”
    This is a corporate decision.
    When I asked about the 26 clinical trials (last number I had heard) that say it works and the fact that both India and Japan have caused their covid cases to plummet through the use of Ivermectin, I was answered with thundering silence from the two nurses and attending doctor.
    Info for what its worth.

    I am not a believer, but if you are, please say a prayer for my wife.

    Sidenote: My all caring, all inclusive employer of 24 years laid me off on Thursday with no warning and no explanation. While they say I am eligible for re-hire, I have already received two rejection emails for transfers to other departments at lower pay.
    Make of it what you will. Spend your IT dollars accordingly.

    • Prayers offered…BUT I would immediately move her to a proper medical clinic, not one getting kickbacks from the government for every Covid patient they prolong without giving known lifesaving treatments. Banner Health is EVIL.

      • I’m very sorry about your wife and I’m very sad that your employer laid you off. What a horrible one-two punch. I’d cast about for a doctor who would be willing to prescribe Invermectin and would get it to her if they allow you to visit. I’m relatively close. Is there anything that I can do?

    • Fishtyx , my lord man get her out of there. The hospital will kill her. I’ll pray for her and you. But roll up in there with a wheelbarrow if you have to and get her out. It looks like anything will kill covid , If u can’t get ivermectin get Pepcid Ac., add milk . ,, Claritin or generic loratadine , benidryl , lots of vitamin c , d3 quercitin if u can get it.
