Classism and Ableism – (originally posted on Twitter)

My eczema gets inflamed and itchy when I wear masks.  Open skin has led to & will lead to an infection.  My Dr. told me to wear a mask as little as possible.  So I spend most of my time outdoors.  I don’t ask others to wear masks because of my situation.  I wear one if I need to.

I’m not immunocompromised.  I’m relatively healthy.  But can still succumb to COVID. I refuse to put my health in the hands of millions of motherfuckers. I think COVID is the first of many pandemics, according to Sleepy Creepy Joe, & we will all need to adjust how we live.

We live in an individualistic society as evidenced by the shit laws in this country.  The most vulnerable are never protected.   Now, the most vulnerable has no class barrier.  People don’t have money for the N95 masks being told to try harder to find free masks 👁️👁️

No one is going to protect you like you will protect yourself. I have said the same thing to family members. The onus is on us to protect ourselves and also to stay away from the most vulnerable, and anyone, if we could have been compromised.  This is the world you  created

There’s no kumbaya moment coming. You people have sat and watched the poor die from a plethora of “preventable” diseases while saying “they should take better care of themselves.” Y’all never say “We should stop allowing junk to be sold as food. It’s killing people.”

And of course there are poor immunocompromised people.  I’m not ignoring them.  But you probably are…. As you always have.  I’m sick of people with money complaining about the fact that they’ve lost access to venues because of selfish people when poor people never had that access.

My ex used to say “nobody ever understands anything until it happens to them.”  And this is what I’m witnessing.  There’s been no real legislation helping the poor for anything.  Most of the legislation either criminalizes poor people or strips them of their dignity.  Y’all did that

Each and every time you let the election cycle go by without the least bit of consideration for poor people, you say you don’t GAF about poor people.  This has been going on for decades.  Now imagine being poor and everyone else not giving AF about you.  This is where you are

When profit is the main driver for medicine, we’ll never have cures.  We’ll never have timely treatments.  How can they have studied a vaccine for decades that works so poorly?  Where are the EFFECTIVE treatments?  For anything? Popping pills for a lifetime hardly seems fair.

COVID has become endemic.  With no cure, effective treatment or effective vaccine that STOPS the spread in sight, we’re in this for the long haul.  People can’t be expected to wear masks in perpetuity.  So it’s a good idea to demand treatment instead of yelling at strangers

America’s COVID death rate is directly related to the state of American’s health and the state of the healthcare system.  While I’m here, shout out to all of the COVID vaccine injured that vaccinated to “protect others” and now those others don’t GAF about you.  You deserve better

We Need To Get Healthier, Mentally, Physically, Politically and Socially

YOUR mask and YOUR vaccination won’t protect YOU but I should wear a mask to protect YOU?  I wear a mask to protect MYSELF and MY family. I don’t ask anyone to wear a mask unless they are coming into my house. Y’all gotta get a grip. Fix YOUR behavior and your HEALTH.  Y’all will say the disease is airborne and that animals can get it.  If they can get it, they can spread it.  I haven’t seen a masked beaver in a bit.

Y’all talking about masks and vaccines, where’s the major health initiative to reduce obesity, heart disease etc? Where are the government PSA’s that added sugars in processed food is the main culprit of bad health? It’s been more than 2 years, has your health improved? Anxiety, isolation and depression are also bad for your physical health.

When we say that the U.S. needs universal healthcare, this is what why. Y’all think healthy people, who contract COVID are just dying? Or are they not getting treatment early enough because they can’t afford it? And by the time they figure out that they have to afford it, it’s too late. What happened to the monoclonal antibodies? Remember throughout Delta, it wasn’t made readily available even though it was more effective than the vaccines. Not a conspiracy. Facts.

It’s clear that a populace with bad health won’t stand a chance against COVID. That’s the answer. Not these B.S. vaccines that do not stop the spread AND allow for long COVID & death. It’s a disgrace that Americans hate their neighbors but love this country 🇺🇲 that don’t love you back. Somehow, health issues are now the responsibility of your neighbors and not a discussion for you and your doctor.

Also, when did everyone start trusting everything the government said? We’re living in frightening times. I see fascism’s a coming

Black People Can And Should Actively Care About Their Medical Decisions. This Includes Our Decision To Vax or Not to Vax

I was watching The Amber Ruffin Show. And I have some views.

Dear Amber,

Black people aren’t antivax.  We’re not all looking at Medical racism thinking “we’re scared of the vaccines.” 1/3 of us Black folk understand that this isn’t about the COVID. if it was about COVID, why weren’t they and aren’t they treating COVID?  There are articles in the NYT that monoclonal antibodies (MCA) were not going to the people with the highest risk.  Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were banned are treatments in 2020 and NOW in 2022, other countries are conducting trails. Seems like Japan thinks ivermectin is a possible treatment. Trials are going well.  

Also, in January and February of 2021, there were constant public service announcements in NYC about getting early treatment. By March, they stopped those PSAs for “GET VACCINATED.” NOW you have Vaccinated people, getting COVID, not knowing there’s EARLY EFFECTIVE Treatment and they are dying. Why? SO many people didn’t know there was early effective treatment. Those Merck pills, only 30% effective at preventing hospitalizations. The MCA antibodies worked 85% to prevent severe illness.

1. The vaccines are not stopping the spread (see the CDC website. They aren’t sure if it stops the spread. It’s been a year and they don’t know?)

2. The vaccines aren’t preventing death.

3. The vaccinated still run the risk of long COVID.

I read somewhere that omicron is the only variant in the U.S. now. 100%? How could the know that? And based on that information +read estimate) they pulled the MCAs that weren’t working against Omicron. But in every other country, Omicron was mild. Why did they pull them?  You don’t know, when someone tests positive for COVID, what variant it is. What kind of madness is this?

The amount of censorship around the issue from RESPECTED doctors and RESPECTED scientists should give EVERYONE pause. Not just Black people.  We certainly shouldn’t be championing mandates. And unlimited booster shots. This is ridiculous.

The booster shots will not stop. These governments have bought supplies for years.

So why the mandates?  This is about our freedom of choice. NOW, especially now, that we know the vaccinated get and spread COVID, we all should realize this is about body autonomy. AND you should all be asking “where’s the treatment?” EVERYDAY

How dare you? Black people get their kids vaccinated. If they don’t want any unproven drug in their bodies, why should they be forced to? No one should be forced to. And it’s probably more than a 1/3 of Black people. Don’t you have a problem with the coercion of Black people to get the vaccine by promises of fast food, money or even the unfortunate inability to feed their families if they don’t get a COVID vaccine?

You should be embarrassed Amber. What makes you qualified to advise people on their medical decisions? This segment is weird. What percentage of White people are antivax? They aren’t all Trumpers. We are not a monolith. Do better.

P.S. You may as well do a segment about the vaccine injuries.. since you’re so concerned.

America Needs To Focus On Health. We Can’t Booster Our Way Out Of A Pandemic

I was just having a conversation this morning about COVID and fat cells…. We discuss things in my house. Sue me. Many of the COVID hospitalizations are obese patients. COVID attacks fat cells according to a Stanford study that has been around for months. We actually need to focus on overall health for all health outside. Particularly, COVID does not like healthy people. Weakened immune systems can be strengthened with a proper diet and activity. We can of course talk about the affordability of eating healthy. Absolutely. Ask yourself why the government will not mandate the end of highly processed foods to protect our health. But they are willing to insist that you inject an UNPROVEN “vaccine” into your body. When 2/3 of American adults are obese or overweight, we need to reassess our priorities. We can’t booster our way out of COVID. We need to revamp our health.

Russell Brand is worth a follow on YouTube. Also join his mailing list. He posted this video a while ago discussing overall health, fat shaming and the pandemic. I watched it in its entirety today. It’s worth a watch. Or just listen. There’s really nothing to see. But there’s plenty to listen to and think about. Why are we so sure the vaccine is the only way when it’s clear that we actually are unsure as more variants appear quickly as they always do with RNA viruses?

Doctor Fauci …. Sigh

What can I say about Doctor Fauci? Something is not right. The first time Doctor Fauci told us we didn’t need masks, a pandemic ensued. The second time he told vaccinated people they don’t need to wear masks, we experienced the 2nd wave. Now Doctor Fauci wants vaccinated families not to wear masks. Ok. Are we still going to listen to him?

Check out what’s going on in Gibraltar; the MOST vaccinated territory in the world. They are currently having an outbreak. When are we going to admit that this virus is here to stay? When are we going to ask why they, the government and the doctors, are not promoting early effective treatment?

What’s going on is criminal and frightening. People giving up their freedoms so they can go to the mall and eat in a restaurant. That’s not freedom. Being allowed to go somewhere isn’t a freedom. Having the right to go anywhere is a freedom. People are bartering movies and fun for freedom? It’s only going to get worse

It’s been almost 2 years into this pandemic. What has anyone done to get healthier? This is a pandemic of the unhealthy. If we don’t admit that, we are failing ourselves.

The News Is All The Same

Don’t you think it’s odd that all of the national news companies are reporting COVID news EXACTLY the same way. In almost the exact way. No one is diverging from the script, except Fox. But none are regularly talking about treatments for the coronavirus. Do they want to instill fear so people will get the Jab? Do they want people to believe that the Jab is the only way?

If the news organizations were really concerned with saving lives, they wouldn’t ignore the unvaccinated. They wouldn’t let people believe there are no treatments available. They would alert the public to seek treatment sooner than later.

For years people have been saying don’t trust mass media. I have to say that this is the first time I’ve seen them be so blatant about it.

Democrats Playing Politics Contributed To The Distrust In the COVID Vaccines

There is a video circulating on the web with little snippets of then Presidential hopeful Biden, Harris and Cuomo casting doubt on the safety of the covid vaccines based on the fact that Trump was at the helm. They feared political pressure made the CDC and FDA move fast. It wouldn’t be so bad if, there wasn’t a woman, I can’t even remember who she is, in this same video saying she’s afraid the vaccines are going to be approved before the election? It makes you pause.

Biden and Harris casted doubt on the efficacy of vaccines that were made so fast because Trump was the President. They actually did place mistrust in the vaccines and the CDC and the FDA because….. Trump was in office. And NOW they want people to trust it. You can’t unring that bell.

The Democrats had a big hand in the people’s mistrust of the vaccine. They were slicked tongued and not being direct when asked direct questions. These vaccines were developed under Trump’s administration.

Cuomo said he wouldn’t trust anything from the federal government. 🤔 Biden himself casted doubt on whether safe vaccines could be developed this quickly to then turn around and say that he would get the vaccine our right after he’s in office. Nothing changed except the President. People don’t trust the Vaccines and like it or not, Biden AND Harris had a large part to play in it.

By casting doubt about the then current President’s ability to roll out vaccines safely in so short of time, Biden, Harris and Cuomo ALL contributed to the distrust in the vaccine. It’s not just Trump saying that the coronavirus is not that bad. But it turns out Trump may have been right. The virus is contagious and very deadly if left untreated. IF LEFT UNTREATED. And that’s what they are doing now. They aren’t treating people until they are too sick to treat. it’s like a year hasn’t gone by and there wasn’t time to learn how to treat the virus. Doctors are refusing to treat patients who aren’t vaccinated. And you will find that there aren’t many people who know about early effective treatment to prevent coronavirus deaths and complications.

The coronavirus is the only illness where people are told to wait until it gets worse before they come in for treatment. So they come in to a hospital. And they are told to go home and isolate. And wait until it gets worse before they come in. What exactly is worse? They already came in for help. What exactly is the barometer for “bad enough to get treatment?”

Now the Delta and the Lambda variants, both foreign born, have made it to our shores. And somehow it’s the fault of the unvaccinated, in American, that these variants exist. This is horrific and everything they say defies logic. They lied to people saying that vaccinated people were unlikely to catch COVID and less likely to spread COVID. They said vaccinated people can take off their masks. Now unmasked, vaccinated people are spreading COVID… And they are still blaming masked, unvaccinated people. This is disgusting.

We need to let the public know there is early effective treatment. They are pushing these vaccines. They are not letting people know about treatments. Doctors aren’t treating people and people are dying. People are dying because they aren’t getting treatment. This is criminal.

They have us fighting eachother over whether to get vaccinated. When really we should be fighting them for treatments. No one deserves to die. Vaccinated or unvaccinated. Everyone can’t even get vaccinated. They should die? The vaccinated people who have “breakthrough” COVID cases, should they die?

Ask yourself, how were they able to develop a vaccine so quickly because of SARS but they didn’t tell you that SARS was thwarted because people work masks? And why don’t they know how to treat it? We need to demand transparency. We need to demand treatment.

COVID Math…. I’m Tired. My Brain Hurts

Before I begin, let me state that every life matters. The lives of every person that has succumb to COVID is not a number. They were all people. Most were loved by at least one person. But none of them were numbers to be lumped into a statistic just to add spice to the cautionary tale known as “Take the vaccine or die.” And it is for this reason I ask mysel every day “Did they have to die?” I mourn them and all of the future lives that will inevitably be lost due to the mismanagement of this crisis in the United States.

The CDC doesn’t count every breakthrough case. It stopped counting all breakthrough cases May 1 and now only tallies those that lead to hospitalization or death, a move the agency was criticized for by health experts.” So how can we actually know the rate of infection amongst the vaccinated? The numbers are skewed. In order to actually know the efficacy of the vaccines, we should demand frequent testing of those they are vaccinated. Why don’t they want us to know? Why don’t they keep track?

The government is asking us to trust them. But they are not being transparent. If we are not testing the vaccinated, we can never fully know what their rate of infection is. There’s a reason why they stopped tracking the breakthrough cases. Wouldn’t they want to tell everyone how great the vaccine is? A third, or 33 % of COVID positive cases were asymptomatic. 81 % of symptomatic cases are mild. 16 percent of symptomatic patients have severe symptoms. So why did 1.7 % of the COVID positive cases end in death? Over 613,000 people. I’m literally scratching my head. Is the rate of death overinflated because we don’t know how many people actually contracted COVID?

Over 200,000 people have died in the U.S. due to COVID in 2021. At this rate, there will be just as many COVID deaths in 2021 as there were in 2020. Why did we lockdown the country if this is seemingly inevitable? “Vaccinated people are less likely to spread COVID even if they are COVID positive.” This backwards logic got us to where we are this year. It’s not unvaccinated in people spreading the disease. It’s vaccinated people. They don’t wear masks, they gather in large crowds and they come home to their immunocompromised and unvaccinated family members and spread the virus to them.

A week ago or so, I searched the CDC website for COVID treatments and it said to get the vaccine? I wish I had screenshot the page. I found a page today on the CDC website that listed treatments. It is allegedly from December 2020. So why didn’t it come up in the Google search for so many months? Why don’t people know that there is early effective treatment for COVID? People fear death and don’t go to hospitals when they think they will die. We have to let people know that treatment is available. That they need to go to the doctor after their FIRST symptom presents. Because right now they think they will just die of COVID anyway. This is why people are still dying. Ignorance and fear. We can’t blame Trump for the guidelines and guidance provided by the CDC in 2021. Can we?
