#3 Remember, above all: We all gotta die eventually. Circle of life, or some such shit.

#4 - Do not try to dictate medical care options nationally. Let doctors treat their patients.

- Peer review has issues under normal circumstances. In a crisis it's too slow. Let information flow freely and the marketplace of ideas sort it out.

- Do not censor information.

- Expect facts to change quickly, especially at the start. Be prepared to change policy too. Using the same policies 18+ months later is basically an admission that those things had nothing to do with fighting the disease.

#6 3.35% of the world was claimed to have had COVID-19+.0.068% of 1% of the world is claimed to have died from Covid-19+

13.7% of the US is claimed to have had Covid-19. 0.22% of the US is claimed to have died of it. Lots more Americans seem to catch it but it is slightly less deadly to us when we do.

#7 Ideally, yes, great synopsis, and bonus points for difficulty level.

5. Only State Governors, not Mayors, should make State/Local level decisions and then only based on state area data and related issues.

Kansas governor was doing the Michigan model t+1 week.

Kansas is not Michigan. Kansas is not Topeka. You don't get Topeka without the food producers, that is packing plants, that is by large proportion Latino community who gave the biggest up yours finger to The Covid Protocols. In fact, it was the first time I had seen the Latino community demonized on local wine mom morning TV.

Other groups caught hell on lwmmTV, mostly them damned cross worshipers, but if you recall there was talk about sending the military in to take over processing plants which I readily laughed at, like Private Upham knows how to dress an animal because camouflage.

My point, other than the know nothing decision makers know nothing, is if the locals had done the Capital Ideas, you all would be 12 months into meatless.

#8 this reminds me of the many times my mother asked me "Are you sure you know what you are doing"

I generally answered "No" because we frequently deal with problems that are not completely or even only partially known.

You do not have the luxury of 'know your problem' in the Covid response or in many other things.

#9 Once the vaccines were developed, politicians and bureaucrats should have stepped away from the pandemic and left it up to the actuaries. If the actuaries are right, their companies will profit. If they are wrong the insurance companies will bleed money. Can't have that. Then, if you want to get vaccinated, get vaccinated. If you don't then don't. Just don't come crying to me when your health insurance company jacks up your premiums or if your employer decides he can't afford to keep you on the group policy. That might work differently for different people depending on other risk factors...depending on the actuarial tables. That is my understanding of how America is supposed to work. I believe the market is smarter than #FJB and Fauxi combined. I believe #FJB and Fauxi understand that too. But covid is a valuable tool for them to use to gain and maintain power and so they will not let go of it. That's why we have all this controversy and divisiveness. That's how you know #FJB and Fauxi are evil.

#10 3.35% of the world was claimed to have had COVID-19+.
0.068% of 1% of the world is claimed to have died from Covid-19+.


I don't have the time, patience or the expertise to bother myself with all those numbers. I don't trust them anyway. That's why I say leave it to the actuaries. It's their job and they have a vested interest in getting it right.

9. Media Updates

See above.

#11 Oh, I almost forgot, the only lesson I'm likely to learn from all of this is #FJB and Fauxi are evil.

#12 Like the military, senior federal bureaucrats should be capped at 30 years of 'service'.

#13 /\ A mandatory removal date (MRD) for the feather merchants. What a novel idea.

#14 Before announcing anything, the question must be answered: WHAT IF I AM WRONG?

And the overriding principle MUST be: ALL medical care must be decided in confidentiality by the individual and their treating physician.
