Small Ammo Score………………

Shoot Point Blank had a coupon in the mail last week: “Buy 2 boxes, Get 1 Free”, so I went to see what was in stock.

It may have been a month ago that I was last in and the pickings were rather slim then, but on this day, they had what I was looking for.

They had 4 different brands of 380 that I was looking for.

2 boxes plus 1 free for $69.75 and that’s about .46 a round.  Higher than it should be, but for today, it’s a great deal.

After my purchase, I wandered about the store and saw this display on the floor:

I called my brother and he said he wanted two boxes.

$215 for 500 rounds, .43 a round, again, much higher than it should be but today it’s a good deal.

 

My Trip To The Dr…………………………..

I get a sinus infection type sickness almost every winter and I know what to expect from it.  I did not get one last winter though.

The wife and I have both been sick for the past 2 weeks with what was eventually diagnosed as “Severe upper respiratory infection” which is a generic term for several different illnesses.  Neither of us had any flu like symptoms.

The wife went to urgent care a day before I did.  Now, shame on me for avoiding getting medical care because I don’t want a false positive China Wuhan Virus test result. (FYI my brother last week had to get tested to go to a big union party downtown Chicago and got back a “positive” test.  He is NOT SICK !!!)  But that is the state of stupid going on in today’s world of medicine.

I went the day after my wife.  Since they did NOT do a China Wuhan Virus test, I felt good to go in.  Very pleasantly surprised to see that they no longer had a “Check in” station where you had to answer questions, get your temp read etc.  That was high hilarity the last time I had to do that at the clinic and hope my experience with them ended that super wasteful nonsense.

We saw two  different Drs. there.  The wife saw a guy that I’ve seen 5-6 times in the past 30 years, mostly for my back way back when.  I saw a guy that I had never seen there before.  It’s notable because of the two very different treatments we were prescribed. (based on the idea that we should have the same illness)

Wife:

Promethazin-Dm 6.25-15 MG/5ML SYP (Cough syrup, wife complained more about coughing)

Azithromycin 250 MG TAB  Quantity 6 1x 6 days (Antibiotic)

Myself:

Prednisone 50 MG TAB Quantity 3 (one a day, 3 days)

Cefdinir 300 MG CAP Quantity 20 2×10 days (Antibiotic)

Now, the wife specifically said that the Dr. said “Not pneumonia” to her but my Dr. did not say that to me.  Jut doing the internet search thing, my treatment swings more to a pneumonia treatment??

Finally, my Dr. gets an extra 100 points for not saying anything about getting a “Not-A-Vaccine” shot !!!!!

 

OSHA Suspends Implementation of Vaccine Mandate per Court Order

OSHA Suspends Implementation of Vaccine Mandate per Court Order

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has suspended the implementation of its federal vaccine mandate affecting roughly 80 million workers in the U.S. after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay its COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).

This is not a victory yet.

We all know the Fascist administration will try something else…………………

Chicago Public Schools Closed: “Vaccination Awareness Day”……..

With little notice, Chicago to cancel school for first-ever ‘Vaccination Awareness Day’

 

With a week’s notice, Chicago Public Schools said in a Thursday night email that it will cancel school Friday, Nov. 12 for a “Vaccination Awareness Day.”

The announcement comes two days after federal health officials gave emergency authorization for the Pfizer vaccine for use among children ages 5 to 11. The extra day off will make next week a three-day school week for students, since Veterans Day is already a district holiday.

In an email to parents Thursday, the district’s CEO, Pedro Martinez, wrote that next Friday is an “opportunity for parents and guardians to take their children five years of age and older to get vaccinated at their pediatrician’s office, at a healthcare provider, or at a CPS school-based site or community vaccination event.”

CPS and the Teacher’s Unions hate your kids.

Friday Night Out………………….

I’ve never been much of a “go out” guy.  Back when I was younger and healthier I was in  softball leagues in the summer, basketball and floor hockey in the winters, when my older brother was alive, I was in pool leagues.   These days, having to deal with “maskholes”, I don’t go about too much.

The plan Friday was that I would stop and the range on the way home from work and bring Burger King home for dinner.  I had a gift card for “Red Robin” and changed the plan to go there instead and not go to the range.

 

I had the “Scorpion Burger”:

Fire-grilled beef burger topped with Scorpion Pepper Sauce, Pepper-Jack, fried jalapeño coins, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, red onions and jalapeños roasted in Scorpion sauce and roasted garlic aioli on a sesame seed bun.

Yeah, mine didn’t quite look like that.

I ate the entire burger with a knife and a fork because it would have been a giant mess trying to pick it up and as for heat, it was about average for “hot”.  The “unlimited” fires were great !!!

Now, about the “maskholes”, as the maître ‘d walked us to our seating, he inquired as to wheter or not I had a mask.

@(!*&@%^

I said “Yes, but it’s really hard to eat with it.”

We only had to wear the face diaper until we got seated.

MORONS !!!!!!!!!!!

Anyhoo, the wife wanted to also visit Farm & Fleet to look at some winter boots.

I headed directly to the ammo section knowing full well that there would be nothing I could use, but might just get lucky.

 

Nope, nothing for me.

Because I don’t go cruising around much anymore, I noticed for the first time, a couple of auto dealerships that had almost empty lots.  THANKS JOE !!!!!!!!!!!

“The Long Shadow of the 1976 Swine Flu Vaccine ‘Fiasco’”

Some, but not all, of the hesitance to embrace vaccines can be traced back to this event more than 40 years ago

“Some of the American public’s hesitance to embrace vaccines — the flu vaccine in particular — can be attributed to the long-lasting effects of a failed 1976 campaign to mass-vaccinate the public against a strain of the swine flu virus,” writes Rebecca Kreston for Discover. “This government-led campaign was widely viewed as a debacle and put an irreparable dent in future public health initiative, as well as negatively influenced the public’s perception of both the flu and the flu shot in this country.”

That’s mostly nonsense.

Anyone born after 1970 certainly would have almost knowledge of this.

On February 4, 1976, a young soldier named David Lewis died of a new form of flu. In the middle of the month, F. David Matthews, the U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare, announced that an epidemic of the flu that killed Pvt. Lewis was due in the fall. “The indication is that we will see a return of the 1918 flu virus that is the most virulent form of flu,” he said, reports Patrick di Justo for Salon. He went on: The 1918 outbreak of “Spanish flu” killed half a million Americans, and the upcoming apocalypse was expected to kill a million.

That earlier pandemic was another form of swine flu, di Justo writes, and researchers at the Centers for Disease Control thought that what was happening could well be a new, even deadlier strain that was genetically close to the 1918 strain.

To avoid an epidemic, the CDC believed, at least 80 percent of the United States population would need to be vaccinated. When they asked Congress for the money to do it, politicians jumped on the potential good press of saving their constituents from the plague, di Justo writes.

The World Health Organization adopted more of a wait-and-see attitude to the virus, writes Kreston. They eventually found that the strain of flu that year was not a repeat or escalation of the 1918 flu, but “the U.S. government was unstoppable,” di Justo writes. They had promised a vaccine, so there needed to be a vaccine.

This all happened in the spring, with emergency legislation for the “National Swine Flu Immunization Program,” being signed into effect in mid-April. By the time immunizations began on October 1, though, the proposed epidemic had failed to emerge (although Legionnaires’ Disease had, confusing matters further.)

“With President Ford’s reelection campaign looming on the horizon, the campaign increasingly appeared politically motivated,” Kreston writes. In the end, one journalist at The New York Times went so far as to call the whole thing a “fiasco.” Epidemiology takes time, politics is often about looking like you’re doing something and logistics between branches of government are extremely complicated. These factors all contributed to the pandemic that never was.

The real victims of this pandemic were likely the 450-odd people who came down with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological disorder, after getting the 1976 flu shot. On its website, the CDC notes that people who got the vaccination did have an increased risk of “approximately one additional case of GBS for every 100,000 people who got the swine flu vaccine.”

“They had promised a vaccine, so there needed to be a vaccine.”

Sound familiar??
