Better that a Millstone

It took a few years, but I finally watched the movie “The Kite Runner”. It now makes the cut as one of my favorite movie dramas. I highly recommend it.

The story, historical fiction, was thought-provoking, compelling and inspiring. It was also very disturbing, because it dealt with the repulsive, revolting reality of the rape of children by depraved sub-human scum.

Kyrie’s Uneven Playing Field

For months of this NBA season Kyrie Irving missed all home games and some away games due to his principled and impressive stand against being forced to be injected with an experimental and, for most people, completely unnecessary innoculation.

Kryie’s stand won a tremendous amount of respect from me and from many others.

But On March 24th, that changed.

England ends several COVID mandates, restrictions and passports

From the EPOCH TIMES:

Restrictions including COVID-19 passes, mask mandates, and work-from-home guidance will be removed in England, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday…..

“As COVID becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others,” the prime minister said….

But he refused to reconsider the vaccination mandate for frontline health care workers, insisting “the evidence is clear that health care professionals should get vaccinated.”

… Johnson told MPs that the Cabinet decided to remove its so-called “Plan B” measures on Wednesday morning as data suggest the Omicron wave has peaked nationally, and he attributed stabilising hospital admission numbers to “the extraordinary booster campaign” and the public’s compliance to the restriction measures.

Our Commentary:

This is very good news, and a great step in the right direction. However, the refusal to remove vaccination mandates for health care workers is extremely unfortunate, as no vaccination mandate is ever justified. Healthcare workers are smart enough and experienced enough to make their own choices about their own medical care, and the majority of the unvaccinated have doubtless already had COVID, and therefore have superior natural immunity. Never mind the fact that the vaccinated are now more likely to get and transmit COVID than the unvaccinated.

Take your vitamin D

We’ve all heard it before. “Take your vitamins.” Whether coming from mom, spouse or doctor, it’s good advice. Among the various vitamins worthy of our attention, vitamin D is possibly the most important, particularly if you live north of the 37th parallel, and particularly if you want protection from Covid-19.

The President and The Freedom Fighter

Abraham Lincoln has long been my favorite president. I love his humble frontier upbringing. His self-taught erudition. His humility and humor. Above all, I love his evolution from apologist to abolitionist.

A big factor influencing that elevation was Lincoln’s relationship with former slave and fervent abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

Libertad and Justice for Cubans

On July 11, 2021, thousands of subjugated Cubans courageously took to the streets to protest the deplorable social and economic conditions imposed upon them by their maleficent masters, the Communist overlords who rule their impoverished nation.

“Libertad” was their rallying cry. And what was the official response of the nation that pledges to stand for “liberty and justice for all?”

The Biden administration despicably spun the protests as simply people upset about Covid and and a lack of access to vaccines.
