    https://kevinbae.com/2021/update-nurije-fype-is-out-of-the-hospital-and-has-returned-home/ Nurije Fype’s long fight against COVID-19 has taken another step in a good direction. Her daughter tweeted on July 2nd that her mom returned home on Monday, June 28th, and is now focused on physical therapy. What a journey it has been for this family and their fight to control the treatment for their mother. What would the outcome have been if the courts did not decide in the family’s favor? Congratulations are in order and great hopes for continued recovery.

    That's nice. But my understanding of counter economics is doing things the government has not given you permission to do. So as good as those things are that you've mentioned, they don't fit into counter economics.

    Thank you for your response. I'm not a doctor either. (My ex-wife is but so what?) I'm not suggesting people try to play doctor. But if your doctor would like to prescribe you something and can't get it, then what? That's the situation we find ourselves in. For example patients who have been admitted to the hospital and who's doctors are fine with prescribing ivermectin only to have the hospital overrule the doctor. That's happening. And with the monoclonal antibodies everybody agrees they're helpful. But the supply is being artificially throttled. And it's neat that you've promoted all sorts of solutions for all sorts of other problems, but I was specifically asking about this problem. And if the answer is "I just haven't thought this one through yet"...that's still an answer.

    That's a good read. I suggest you do a refresher from page 43 where it talks about using counter economics to supply "unproven medicines" to people who want/need them. That's what are facing right now. "Unproven" medicines for COVID like ivermectin and hydroxycloroquine as well as proven medicines such as monoclonal antibodies are being restricted on purpose by the federal government. It's admirable you want to get rid of the entire system. Nice long term goal. But the beauty of counter-economics is that it's designed to work around the current system rather than requiring the current system to be abolished first. Hence the term counter economics. This reminds me of a conversation I had with a (likely socialist) ministerial student. We were at a roundtable talking about ways to help the black community. At his turn he went on an unhinged rant about needing to "Get the man's boot off our necks" so we could do something about "food deserts." (From my own research the "food desert" claim is bogus fake academia.) I couldn't take it. My response was "If you want to have a store, start a store. Nobody is stopping you." I saw a movie some years ago about Rev. Vernon Johns, the preacher who proceded MLK at the church in Montgomery. One of the activist things Rev. Johns did was to start a farmers market in the church parking lot, much to the chagrin of the deacon board. Counter economics at it's finest. So, now you know the problem. Needed (or at least desired) COVID medicine is being stiffled by the feds. Without having to first do a revolution and overturn the entire system, how would you apply counter economics to circumvent the current system and fill and obvious need? I look forward to your answer.

    You are not in 100% agreement with Ron Paul. https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2011/09/13/140434378/ron-paul-its-not-governments-job-to-take-care-of-uninsured BLITZER: But Congressman, are you saying that society should just let him die? A few in the crowd hollered and at least a couple screamed, "Yeah." Paul responded, "No. I practiced medicine before we had Medicaid, in the early 1960s, when I got out of medical school. I practiced at Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio, and the churches took care of them. We never turned anybody away from the hospitals."

    You have no idea what the term "moral duty" means. It doesn't mean one that is coerced by the state but one that comes from conscience. Whether from our creator or through evolutionary biology, such moral duty has served our species well. And it predates communism by thousands of years. The story of the Good Samaritan is an example of moral duty.

    :rolleyes: I don't consider your shrill "attack everybody that disagrees with me while offering no real solutions myself" attitude keeping a calm head. Edit: And the issue isn't just that people are dying. People are dying and the only solutions being offered by the fed are authoritarian. Desantis has been under attack for not pushing mask mandates, lifting lockdowns "too early" and now not pushing for vaccine mandates. Whether you realize it or not, Desantis is right on all of those issues. But the COVID stats in his state are used as whipping boy by the authoritarians. That's what's at stake.

    What if he did? Seriously? What uses of federal money do you find "acceptable" versus "unacceptable?" Here is an article on Ron Paul pork. https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/post/ron-paul-big-government-libertarian/2012/01/03/gIQAVj1QYP_blog.html Great. At least we're on the same page on that. The problem that we have right now is that Biden et al are actively blocking treatment options. Anything reversing that is helpful. I've asked you multiple times for actual solutions. You know, that "counter economics" that agorists are supposed to be famous for? Instead, you've just been acting political. Even negative politics is politics. Yes, I'm calling you out on your own theory.

    People who are dead before 2024 can't vote in 2024 unless they are democrats. Then what are you babbling about? I've said repeatedly I don't give a flip about DeSantis. I'm just glad people are getting access to the treatment they need. This ain't about "red flock shepherds" and being "alpha." Where the hell is your sense of compassion? Anti Federalist pointed out that this treatment is saving his life. A governor of a state seeking treatment for the people of his state is not a violation of conservatism. Trump banning bump stocks by executive order is a violation of conservatism. If you're bitching about "federal money", Ron Paul brought a boatload of federal money back to his district as a congressmen so I guess you'd throw him out too. But again, if you're such a purist then put your money where your mouth is. That's something that neither you nor PAF seem willing to do. The answer to "The taxpayers shouldn't fund this" is to fund it your own damn self.

    Yes. You are clearly insane. I get it. But I was asking for a solution to saving lives. Your thread on "Ron DeSantis On The Record" has nothing in it about saving lives. Question. Are you a nihilist? Do you just want people to die? It seems like it. Same for acptulsa.

    Actually that's not true. The ulitmate reason Rand Paul gave for support for the CRA is that the Jim Crow laws created an environment that needed correcting. Yes he flip flopped on the issue. But his final position is correct. The Jim Crow system had a government and a pseudo government part. Ten years after Brown v Board of Education outlawed segregation you still had state mandated and terrorist mandated (KKK) segregation. And ultimately the goal is individual freedom.

    What are you missing? How about the fact that Trump was absolutely in on the COVID scam from the get go and it could not have happened without his aiding and abetting? GOF research stopped under Obama. It restarted when Trump was president. And no. I do not "regret not voting for Trump." Why? Because I actually understand the constitution and can count. There was no way Trump would lose my state with our without my vote. The GOP primary was a mere formality so I voted Tulsi Gabbard. That was also a protest vote. I voted Jorgensen in the general. No regrets. I have no problem with those who voted for Trump either. That just wasn't me.

    I'm having trouble following your logic. What I think your concern is that not that what Desantis is doing is actually wrong, but that you're concerned he'll get too much credit for it? This is about 2024 for you? I do not care! What is your proposal to getting monoclonal antibodies to the patients in states where Biden is throttling that? If you don't have an answer for that, then you don't really have a valid argument. Slavery itself is a crime against humanity. Getting treatment for the people in your state is not a crime against humanity. And you have not even given a rational explanation as to how Desantis move "hurts" other states. Quite the contrary. The "free market" of supply and demand dictates that manufacturing increases based on increased demand. If Desantis gamble pays off, and early results shows that it is paying off, then other states are likely to go directly to the manufacture. Guess what the manufacturer will do at that point? Increase the supply! Really, this isn't that complicated.

    You're sounding a bit collectivist here. Desantis can't help his own state because it might hurt other states? Emphasis on might. What's more likely is that other states will follow Desantis example and make the own direct deals circumventing the feds. And as actual descendant of slaves I fail to see the equivalence between states having the right to let people own other people and states having the right to look after the interests of their own people.

    The priorities put in the declaration of independence are LIFE, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They are put in that order for a reason. Biden's actions are a direct assault on the LIFE priority. I don't give a crap if Desantis becomes the GOP nominee or not. In fact I would much rather that be Rand Paul. If it is Desantis I may not even vote. But I support moves made to give people more options to save their LIFE.

And again, this has nothing to do with "end the fed". You're misusing the term. Sorry, you just are.

    Are you even paying attention? The doctors, clinics and hospitals do not have the power to compete with the Federal government. Biden is targetting southern states for retribution. This was like the situation with PPE early on. I sold N95 masks to doctors and clinics that couldn't get them, but I could. The normal supply chain was screwed up. I bought off Craigslist and when that supply dried up I bought off Alibaba. I had to be careful not to buy too many because there were stories about the Feds confiscating PPE supplies people were buying in bulk. If you haven't tried to fulfil a hospital supply chain, even on a small scale like I did, you need to do that first before trying to comment on what doctors and hospitals should be doing for themselves. I haven't seen the article you are talking about regarding the health card policy. I'll take your word for it that such a policy is bad. But this ain't that. FFS! The free market has already been overturned by Biden!

    You're welcome and hope you make a full recovery! Ummm.......you're not making sense. "End The Fed", a chant that first became known to me when I joined this movement in 2007, had/has a particular meaning. It's always meant the Federal Reserve Bank. End the Fed never was associated, by this movement, with ending all government. It didn't even mean "end the federal government." It meant "End The Federal Reserve Bank." This country existed many years without a central bank. I had to explain this to my mother in law (ex mother in law now?) when she gave me grief over my "end the fed" bumper sticker. So no. Accepting help from a non federal government official that is not connected to the central bank is not nullification of "End The Fed." So...quit saying that. Please. Now to the practical side of this. We are literally in the fight for our very lives. What Biden is doing by limiting the supply of monoclonal antibodies to be compared to boycotts our country has done against "terrorist" nations. Ron Paul has in the past justly called that an act of war. I do not say this lightly. Anti Federalist knows I'm the last person to be talking like this. As I type this I know this forum is being watch. I am probably more identifiable than most because I don't use some pseudonym here. But if we don't pull our heads out of our collective asses as see what's going on, well then whatever happens next is our own damn fault. When liberals were pushing for more gun control and constitutional sheriffs were like "Nope. We're not going to let you enforce those laws in our jurisdictions", and they were applauded, did you freak out then and say "Wait a minute. That's the end of 'End The Fed'?" Because....I missed that if you did. If you didn't, what's the difference? Yes, in a perfect government free world sheriffs wouldn't exist and the self organized militia would protect us from enemies foreign and domestic. But that perfect world does not exist! Yes, the Bundy's held of the feds for a bit on the grazing issue...then they fell of the front page, then the feds arrested them when they tried to help someone else. If a governor or state legislature decides to act to help you have more medical choices, there is no downside to that action. And if you've got a solution on how to get monoclonal antibodies or ivermectin or whatever else to the people that want it and can't get it, GREAT! We're all ears. And for the record I'm all for natural over the counter stuff like zinc and melatonin and other natural remedies like exercise and sunlight and hydrotherapy. I'm putting together a pamphlet on just that to share in my community. This is a full court press. Let's start working on solutions. We don't have the time or manpower to waste knocking down each others ideas on nothing principal grounds.

    Consider what Rand is doing now the same as the jab in boxing. The jab usually doesn't knock anyone out but it sets up the knockout strikes. The chance for accountability comes in 2022. If it's a referendum on Biden's performance then the Dems may lose the House and Senate. If it becomes another referendum on Trump, who knows.
