I saw this doom and gloom headline on Saturday: Hospitals in Idaho, Pennsylvania, Texas overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients.
But it’s not based in contextual information or facts.
From the article:
In Idaho, National Guard troops were called in to help triage patients outside an urgent-care facility turned COVIID-19 clinic, while the staff inside work 12-hour shifts.
Those in the National Guard were not ordered to do so. Those in charged asked for volunteers. So the need was not dire. 12 Hour shifts is normal for such incidents. ALL hospitals have Continue reading “We are being manipulated, and are being told lies and exaggerations”
Our school district, West Ada School District, is without course and rudderless, too top-heavy, and is far less focused on actual education, and more focused on “safety” and protecting itself from litigation. And passing the buck to a tyrannical health district.
They have placed way too many draconian restrictions on students, parents, teachers, schools, etc, that educating will come with obstructions and hurdles that will likely prove to be completely unnecessary, but will hinder education progress and the mental health of many.
They have no clear plan as to when in-person classes would begin, what the standards of “safety” will be, what precise metric will cause a school Continue reading “Starting The Path of School Freedom”
Please be kind enough to read, detached from emotion and biasses. I do care what is happening in the world, our country, my state, and my community. Who am I to talk about such things? I’m no one. But I can read data. And so can you. I am by no means an expert, but I can rely on experts as I research. I’ve relied on experts from Oxford. And ANYONE can look at the metrics. I recommend this data source, since it is free from emoting commentary.
I cite references below. A scholarly article/review which cites several RCT studies, and a recent video of Oxford epidemiologists, and a few quotes. My motivation is not to personally attack ANYONE. My motivation was prompted by the repeated claims that mask mandates “are based on the science.” My motivation is to present an important perspective that I feel is largely un heard and misrepresented.
I’m not anti mask, I’m anti-bad-science. I want my state, and the country to re-open. Although I cannot wear face masks due to non-SARS-CoV-2 health issues, if the science supported it, I would Continue reading “COVID-19: Bad Science, Bad Metrics, Lies, And Manipulations”
I am truly sorry if these data points offend you. I’m just growing tired of local and national news agencies focusing on case numbers, or the death toll of a specific day. These data points I present do not mean I don’t care about those that have tragically died as the result of SARS-CoV-2, I just want to look at contextual and relevant data points objectively. That’s all.
Case numbers alone cannot determine the strength or lethality of the virus. Death toll numbers alone cannot help determine the strength or lethality of the virus. The number of occupied beds speaks only about specific hospitals, and do not speak of the strength or lethality of the virus. Hospitalization rates and CFR is how strength and lethality are tracked. Based on the metrics and determinations of the CDC, the virus is Continue reading “COVID-19 Metrics Show The virus Is Weakening”
Why can’t we let individuals decide for themselves on whether to open their businesses, step outside, attend a sports event, etc., with or without a mask? What is wrong with personal agency and personal responsibility?
I honestly don’t see why so many people are getting so political and uppity about masks. Either they work to prevent you from getting sick, or they don’t. I can post dozens of videos and links that prove they are NOT effective, and you can post multiple videos and links that prove that they ARE effective. You will not persuade me by posting a meme. There will NEVER be consensus on masks. NEVER. If you want to wear a mask, then go ahead, but if I don’t want to wear a mask, then you will still be fine because you are wearing a mask. Why can’t we just let the individual decide for himself/herself? I don’t get uppity with you about you wearing a mask, so please don’t get uppity with others who choose to not wear a mask. You’ll be fine, you’re wearing a mask. It has NOTHING to do with me thinking you are a scared wuss, or thinking I am excessively brave. You’ve been persuaded to wear a mask, I have not. That’s all there is to it. Neither of us will likely be dissuaded. Yelling and screaming will only drive deeper the wedges. Calling me selfish will say more about you.
To accuse me of being selfish really Continue reading “Masks And Individual Liberty”
Destruction is part of human nature. I get it. So, it should not be surprising the amount of iconoclasts in the “social justice” mobs of today; the iconoclasts destroying statues, and destroying history.
Iconoclasm is nothing new, it’s been around since shortly after creation. The destruction and discrediting of essential figures of civic and spiritual liberty has long been a tool of the devil. This tool will continue to be used with evil purpose until Christ Himself puts an end to it.
Lies about our country’s framers have been perpetuated by iconoclasts for decades, and it is high time we quarantine these lies and discredit their perpetrators.
There is absolutely no evidence which proves Continue reading “There Is No Evidence Which Proves Thomas Jefferson Fathered Any Of Sally Hemings’ Children”
The point of this writing is to squash the canard that “Christians must do whatever government says.” This statement is an absolute. And its principle is not found in scripture. We are not commanded to always obey government.
What this writing is not about, is a call to action. I am not calling for defiance of government. I am not advocating for lawlessness and mobs. I merely want to make it clear that scripture does not command us to blindly obey everything government says. That’s it.
I’ve seen, over the past few months, some verses of scripture posted online to support this canard, but they ignore the context, the historical surroundings, the intent of the author, and subsequent verses. I don’t care Continue reading “Myth: As Christians, We Must Always Obey Government”
I’ve reached the point that I have little desire to vote. I no longer see the point. I keep asking myself, “Is our country a failed state?”
We elect congress, but why? The supreme court anti-constitutionally hijacks legislative powers from congress all the time. John Roberts, and his anti-constitutional cohorts, create laws which Continue reading “Elections Have Become Meaningless”
For Those of you who vote GOP and support the GOP solely because of judges, how’s that working out for you?
No surprise to me, and to others who have read my past writings on our gnostic, anti-constitutional, and incestuous judicial branch, the supreme court yesterday once again did what only congress has the constitutional power to do: legislate. And those who want to destroy the family, and religion, cheered the court’s OPINION, and pretended to be compassionate and kind, while vilifying anyone who offered a contrary opinion of constitutionalism, religious freedom, freedom of conscience, and real inalienable rights.
Those that voted for Trump in 2016 solely because Continue reading “Can We Stop Pretending We Have A Conservative Constitutional Supreme Court?”
If any school official or policy violates these rights, the school and its governing administration are in violation of section 9524 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and they will lose ESEA funds. Nothing scares a school district more than the possibility of losing funds.
Despite the wishes of freedom from religion advocates, our children have religious rights while attending public school. I think several citizens are unaware of these rights.
As I have previously written, our tyrannical Supreme Court in the 1960’s re-interpreted the religious clauses of the 1st Amendment in order to promote their hostility towards religion. In order to do this, they had to ignore history, ignore over 150 years of judicial precedents, ignore over 150 years of national doctrine, and ignore Continue reading “Do Students Have Religious Rights?”
