    Haha, yeah, they need to stop the spread of "dangerous misinformation", like the fact that so many deaths were mislabeled in an attempt to cause fear and panic. Hence the "archive.org" solution.

    If animals are rising out of the ground due to decomp gases, that's one thing. If they start running around seeking to eat brains, then we'd better get ready. ;)

    I think most of us here understand this, but that Johns-Hopkins releases this analysis is somewhat unexpected. The data, however, do not lie. "According to new data, the U.S. currently ranks first in total COVID-19 cases, new cases per day and deaths. Genevieve Briand, assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Hopkins, critically analyzed the effect of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in her webinar titled “COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data.” From mid-March to mid-September, U.S. total deaths have reached 1.7 million, of which 200,000, or 12% of total deaths, are COVID-19-related. Instead of looking directly at COVID-19 deaths, Briand focused on total deaths per age group and per cause of death in the U.S. and used this information to shed light on the effects of COVID-19. She explained that the significance of COVID-19 on U.S. deaths can be fully understood only through comparison to the number of total deaths in the United States. After retrieving data on the CDC website, Briand compiled a graph representing percentages of total deaths per age category from early February to early September, which includes the period from before COVID-19 was detected in the U.S. to after infection rates soared.

    I have previously endorsed NAC in other threads, and I'll do so again. I take NAC (if I have some) when I drink booze, and as a general supplement, particularly if I'm not feeling well. As a chemist, it just makes sense. It's certainly a bonus if it helps with The 'Rona. The FDA be damned.

    I'll had aquaponics as an individualistic food production solution on the radar for quite some time. Great minds.. :) But yes, individuals producing their own food and energy aren't part of the future that the megacity/megagrid people have in mind, though simply that would be a solution to so many economic and social problems. *Le sigh*

    You get 'em, Tiger! Part of the trouble people are having is that biotechnology is well beyond where many people think it is these days. PCR testing has never been used to this scale before, and that and the other assays etc, are very new to the general populace. That's not to say any of this is infallible or should be taken as holy doctrine, but things are much more advanced than they were 20 or 30 years back. Culturing bacteria or fungi often times isn't that difficult. Then, having the organism in hand, one could perform a multitude of verifications to determine the identity of such an organism. Viruses aren't quite that easy. You can't just swab them onto an agar petri-dish and put it in the incubator. Since they do nothing on their own, often only infect certain cells and might be particular to other conditions, there is a bit more difficulty in their in vitro propagation. However, It can be done for SARS-CoV-2, as seen here. It takes more time, labor and resources. BUT, if every test was performed to this level of rigor (viral propagation, electron microscopy, whole genome sequencing, oh my), we'd have no doubt about who was and wasn't infected. Perhaps if it were only done for those who were obviously symptomatic, and, only then after positive verifications throughout, would it be a "case", we'd have much less in the way of "cases".

    Well, with proper lab/transport efficiency, it's certainly possible. Here is a one RT-PCR test that claims 1-hour TAT (Turn Around Time). So a day shouldn't be a problem, depending on how inundated a lab might be. Also, there are rapid antigen tests, such as this one, which claims results within 30 minutes, and doesn't even require a lab. Keep in mind, Elon Musk made famous some ambiguous results he received from rapid antigen tests.

    Looks again like it's time to ignore "The Science!" and not make "data-driven" policies. It's pitifully clear that these dehumanizing dictates do nothing to save us from viruses, but they're sure effective at stroking the egos of every tin-pot despot who has come out the woodwork since the beginning of this medical-kabuki nightmare.

    You might be immune and not have detectable antibodies, and this would create a market for badge-forgers, but otherwise it would, at least, be an improvement. I still hold that if this disease were never given a name and $billions in propaganda, we'd never have been the wiser. People would hear about a bad cold/flu going around, like nearly every year, and we'd go about our business, unfazed. Old people would still die of something. There would still be complications for the already unhealthy. ...And we'd already be done with it. Especially Sweden! Someone is trying to undermine their successes; I wouldn't doubt if there were payoffs happening as we speak.

    https://www.theblaze.com/news/sweden-partial-lockdown-bars-and-restaurants Since the pandemic began, Sweden has been hailed by anti-lockdown advocates as an example to follow: no national lockdowns, no mask mandates. Life has seemed fairly normal there, as the nation appeared to be faring better than other nations. Sweden was having such success avoiding being like other Western nations that had imposed lockdowns and mandates on their citizens that even NBC News was forced to admit last month that the Scandinavian nation sure seemed to be outperforming expectations. Noting that Sweden "looks like the world we lost," the outlet even suggested that the country could be a "pandemic roadmap" for the U.S. But with the current spike in cases worldwide, even Sweden is making some relatively drastic changes. For the first time since the start of the global pandemic, the Swedish government is set to impose a partial lockdown on some businesses.

Tempe seeks to charge organizers with violating several city codes, the city’s mask mandate and state guidelines on large gatherings. The city also seeks to recover costs related to police, fire and parks staff that responded to the event. A cost estimate is not yet available. People from across the Valley and out-of-state gathered at Tempe Town Lake on Nov. 1 for the event, Let Us Worship, hosted by California-based Christian worship leader Sean Feucht.

    Wait, didn't your Chinese friend tell you that Trump would win with ~290 electoral votes? Maybe when they're done counting Beijing? All fun aside, what the Doc said here is what I've been telling people in so many words: "The emotional investment of many Americans into the race between Trump and Biden would have shocked the drafters of the Constitution. The Constitution’s authors intended the presidency to be an office of strictly limited powers that would not impact most Americans." The federal government, altogether, wasn't meant to be so powerful as to so profoundly influence the lives of individuals in the way it now does. The government of now is completely off the Founder's map.

    Libertarian Party Governor Candidate Who Focused on Fighting Coronavirus Tyranny Wins High Vote Total in Indiana"Donald Rainwater ran this year an unusually popular governor campaign for a Libertarian Party candidate. As I wrote in early October, the popularity of Rainwater’s campaign appeared to arise largely because of his standing out as the candidate in the race for Indiana governor who presented clear and strong opposition to the reelection-seeking Republican governor’s tyrannical coronavirus mandates, while the Democratic contender argued the governor’s mandates were not severe enough. In the Tuesday election, the Indianapolis Star is reporting that Rainwater won about 11.4 percent of the vote. This places Rainwater’s vote total around three and a half percent below the Libertarian governor candidate vote total record set by Dick Randolph in Alaska in 1982 and around one percent above the previous second-highest Libertarian governor candidate vote total obtained by Ed Thompson in Wisconsin in 2002." Good news. Let's keep moving in this direction.
