#14  Where have you gone, Boss Daley & Frank Rizzo...
Posted by: Lex || 06/01/2020 17:31 Comments || Top||

#15  /\ Yes, Mayor Frank (low-level ghetto arclight) Rizzo. Lots of bitc*ing and moaning at the time, but very effective.

#16  /\ Despite their, perhaps, extra-curricular activities, it's funny how things seemed to "work" back in those days.
Posted by: Clem || 06/01/2020 17:42 Comments || Top||

#17  Wonder if any of the older Antifa and BLM goons recalled 1968, compared Chicago PD under Daley to the current Chitown and Mpls. marshmallow contingents under the likes of Lightfoot and Trudeau's-little-brother and saw a big opportunity: mayhem with no response.

Were they fired up & ready to go before the Floyd incident?

#1  The death toll from the government cytokine storm over-reaction to COVID will kill vastly more than Kung Flu will.
Posted by: Bright Pebbles || 06/01/2020 10:37 Comments || Top||

#2  And when those cancers kill them they can rightly be counted as COVID-19 deaths.
Posted by: Glenmore || 06/01/2020 13:18 Comments || Top||

#3  I think this kind of thing depends on the location. Here in Cincinnati I have a girlfriend who has fought cancer for three years, and had no problem continuing her chemotherapy treatments until her doctors concluded last week that it was no longer helping. She was immediately moved to hospice, and has been getting visitors daily ever since.

#7  Thank you, guys — I’ll pass that on. She and her husband have had three extra years to prepare themselves and us for this beyond what the doctors originally expected, and their faith has been their shield and comfort throughout. But the key point in this thread is the WuHu Flu did not cause any interruption of her treatment, though elsewhere in the U.S. plenty have and will die because their treatment was set aside for more important patients.

#6  ^And even a cloth one is better than nothing.
p.s. A week ago overheard a conversation on a bus. An old lady to a young rowdy (3 high-schoolers being a nuisance) "I don't understand why somebody as ugly as you objects to wearing a mask.".

Yale Epidemiologist: Hydroxychloroquine Should Be 'Widely Available And Promoted Immediately' As Standard Treatment
[Zero Hedge] Hydroxychloroqine - a cheap, widely-prescribed anti-malaria drug which was deemed safe for decades until it showed efficacy treating coronavirus - needs to be made "widely available and promoted immediately for physicians to prescribe," according to Yale epidemiologist Dr. Harvey Risch.

In a Wedensday manuscript detailing how high-risk COVID-19 patients should be treated, Risch notes that the combination of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and the antibiotic azithromycin (AZ) "has been widely misrepresented in both clinical reportsand public media," and that "Five studies, including two controlled clinical trials, have demonstrated significant major outpatient treatment efficacy."

Hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin has been used as standard-of-care in more than 300,000 older adults with multi comorbidities, with estimated proportion diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmias attributable to the medications 47/100,000 users, of which estimated mortality is <20%,9/100,000users, compared to the 10,000 Americans now dying each week. These medications need to be widely available and promoted immediately for physicians to prescribe. - Dr. Harvey Risch

Risch recommends the combination of HCQ+AZ "preferably with zinc" as a "standard outpatient treatment, at least until we find or add something better, whether that could be remdesivir or something else."

The manuscript flies in the face of mainstream health authorities, which has staged a full court press against HCQ, while promoting Gilead's (very expensive) remdesivir as the only viable option to treat the COVID-19. Medical experts - including Dr. Anthony Fauci of the White House coronavirus task force have cautioned against taking the drug despite its successful use by doctors around the world, who have claimed dramatic improvement in patients with coronavirus.

"Every patient I've prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free," said Los Angeles doctor Dr. Anthony Cardillo, adding "So clinically I am seeing a resolution."

In mid-May, President Trump admitted to taking HCQ + Zinc right around the time VP Mike Pence's Press Secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the virus.
