It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Part II
Continued. Read Part I here
To have a nation with borders and immigration laws is “unconstitutional,” according to a radical Florida judge. If this is not a wake-up call about the irremediable corruption of the judiciary, then nothing ever will be. A federal judge struck down parts of a Florida law aimed at banning local governments from establishing sanctuary city policies, arguing in part that the law is racially motivated and that it has the support of hate groups.
You would never guess what parts of the U.S. population are most resistant to alluring vaccination propaganda. Our black citizens are the largest group of resistors. But who is the other? People with Ph.D. degrees, the high achievers and the smartest members of our society. Take heed, they understand something the rest of the herd doesn’t.
If you are unvaccinated in New York City, kiss goodbye any public places and events – like theaters, museums and gyms. Restaurants are permitted to host you only in “outdoor dining sections” (plywood huts built on the streets or parking lots adjacent to the establishments). If you ride NYC subway or bus without the mask, the fine is $50. When you want to fly overseas and possess no proof of vaccination, PCR test done 72 hours prior to the trip would cost you around $200 per person (ditto for the return trip).

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Part I
The name of the hilariously funny movie from 1963 is the best way to describe the madness engulfing us all. The name fits, yet there is little to laugh about. The crazy twister has no intention of stopping and is likely to gain strength as it moves along.
It swirls around like a hurricane, sucking in entire countries; scientists, politicians, news media and Big Tech corporations, medics, gun manufacturers, entire industries, logistical chains, governments and military, budgets, tyrannical leaders and freedom-loving people, insane lefties, BLM and its followers and God knows who and what else.
The world we knew and loved is broken, wrecked – like a wound-up toy with a busted spring inside. Think about it. Something we all relied upon is no longer dependable or even predictable. Madness, like pestilence, has spread everywhere, into societies and human lives. We’d love to be optimistic about the outcome, but there is no end is sight. Those in power say and do stupid things, leading to madness perpetuating itself. Long chains of events like that can eventually lead to major world or civil wars; serious political tensions, calamities and revolts. The pressure must be relieved somehow, and we don’t get to chose the method. Once the firestorm starts, it wouldn’t quit, until supplies of oxygen and timber are gone. There are plenty of both in the world today. You don’t believe us, do you?
Well, here’s something for your mind to munch on, in no particular order.(more…)

Memories of the Covid Ward
As they say here: “Sh_t happens’. One never believes it will occur on your watch and it will affect one’s life in ways that cannot quite be imagined. But occasionally it does.
We are talking about Covid. Below you will find the kind of “memoirs” one would rather not possess. But life doesn’t ask for permission. It just happens with you or anyone else, seemingly out of the blue. And then you are infected.
It starts small. A bit of slightly irritated scratchy throat (how strange, didn’t have any cold drinks lately, no sitting under cold A/C air). A bit of a runny nose. How weird. You still cannot recognize what is taking place and try to go on with your life as usual. Then you notice a fever. A fever that doesn’t show up in aches and pains one would get when the body temperature goes up. No, you still go on with your life as normal, even when it goes up to 101ºF (38.5ºC). You just stop eating, have no appetite for any food. Your brain is clear, your body works mostly as before, and unless you measure the body temperature, you wouldn’t know. The discomfort is minimal. You sleep normally. This is one facet of this illness that kills so many people. It suppresses body’s immune system reaction. The body doesn’t fight it as it normally should. And by the time immune system recognizes the danger, and the lungs are giving up, it may be too late. We read about it before, but did not connect the dots when it caused us to falter.(more…)
