How to push a useless, but dangerous, vaccine


New Zealand Goes From Zero Covid to Herd Immunity in just weeks: Now that shows real political flexibility


  1. During Covid, I had been thinking of this,

    "This is the way the world ends
    This is the way the world ends
    This is the way the world ends
    Not with a bang but a whimper."

    Now I am scared to death it will be ending in both a whimper and a bang.

    This is too stupid to be true.

    Very few of us are stupid. Most retarded people aren't stupid. The most educated of us clearly lean towards stupidity.

    1. We are the hollow men. We are the stuffed men.

      Now hold on. Which is it? Can't be both stuffed and hollow.

      But Eliot had a good idea to help people remember his lines. He repeats the first line of the last verse four times.

      Still I do respect him for his evidence before the 1950's British Royal Commission on Broadcasting. "Give people what they want" he said "and you will begin by underestimating them, and end by corrupting them."

      It takes a poet to frame evidence before a Royal Commission in such a way that I recall it more than 60 years later.

    2. But Trudeau is clearly one of the stuffed men. As to what he's full of, I leave it to others to decide.

    3. "Can't be both stuffed and hollow."

      I think the idea is we can be stuffed with hollowness:

      (1) 57 Channels (And Nothin'On).

      "Well now home entertainment was my baby's wish
      So I hopped into town for a satellite dish
      I tied it to the top of my Japanese car
      I came home and I pointed it out into the stars
      A message came back from the great beyond:
      There's fifty-seven channels and nothin' on"

      "Well we might'a made some friends with some billionaires
      We might'a got all nice and friendly if we'd made it upstairs
      All I got was a note that said, 'Bye-bye, John
      Our love's fifty-seven channels and nothin' on,' "

      (2) Junk Food

      Junk food allows us to eat thousands of calories in reasonably sized servings utterly devoid of nutrient value.

      We even use the phrase, "empty calories". That's to be hollow and stuffed.

      A calorie is a unit of energy, fuels the body, and so in a way the phrase
      "empty calorie" suffers the same confusion as "hollow and stuffed". Yet it is so easy to eat too many calories without any sense of satiation-- and to be hungry again far too soon.

      Thanks for that quote, CS.

    4. Thank you for explaining the compatibility of stuffedness and hollowness. You use a compelling analogy.

  2. Opposing the vaccine = anti-science + racist + misogynist.

    1. Sounds like a theorem in a math class in 1984.

  3. Though these incidents are specific to Alaskan politics, to me they seem relevant to Trudeau:


    The governor of Alaska, Mike Dunleavy, split Alaska's Department of Health in two. He did it by EXECUTIVE ORDER.

    "Gov. Mike Dunleavy enacted the division not through legislation that could be amended by lawmakers but by executive order — the most sweeping departmental change enacted via a governor’s order since Alaska became a state."


    Alaska's single seat in the US House of Representatives is vacant. (Rep. Don Young, Alaska's representative from 1973 until his recent death, in office, 49 years.)

    Alaskans will pick his temporary replacement, BY MAIL:

    "In an unprecedented move, the June 11 primary will take place mostly by mail, with ballots sent automatically to all Alaska voters registered at least 30 days before the election. The Aug. 16 general election will occur on the same day, and on the same ballot, as Alaska’s regular primary election."

  4. Elites never gave a damn about the common people except insofar as they depended on them as the source of productive labor. But now, in an age of ever increasing automation and computerization, a pair of hands is rarely worth its keep. As a consequence, today's elites care little if at all for the goodwill of the people. Rather they mostly consider it past time to withdraw previously made concessions.

    Democracy is thus slated to go. But the dictator wannabes like Justin Trudeau obviously don't want a civil war on their hands, so democracy is being made ever more meaningless through media-delivered distraction, diversion and disinformation plus vote rigging, and puppetry.
