Covid recovery

This is from someone sharing his close call to death! Good read:

I’ve kept this quiet, but after reading the condemnation and censorship of the “frontline doctors,” I thought I would share my story. Fb FCC

I contracted Covid and had the battle of my life for three weeks. Fever, chills, uncontrollable coughing, muscle aches and a migraine that literally lasted 10 days. Those symptoms were akin to a severe flu, but double pneumonia was definitely a different beast.

My lungs filled with fluid. I could not lay down, could barely walk across the room, and several times thought I wouldn’t catch my next breath.

I was taken to the ER. They confirmed double pneumonia, tested me, and said I could be put on a vent or go home. Seriously. No other option. I’ve read too many stories of people not getting off vents so I went home in hopes I would get better on my own. I didn’t. My lungs only got worse.

One night around 10:30, Megan received a call from the daughter of a Dallas doctor and said her dad had a 100% success rate with Covid patients. Her dad, Dr. Cesar Gomez, prescribed a treatment he said multiple doctors were using with high success.

He called in a prescription of hydroxychloroquine, Zithromax, Zinc, a nebulizer with Budesonide, along with Vitamins A and D.

When I woke the next morning I was already beginning to feel a tad better. By the next day I knew I was going to be ok. My lungs were improving and the migraine was gone. Within 48 hours I was walking and breathing much better. It worked and possibly saved my life.

Yesterday I saw the same media who say we should stay in, close businesses, wear masks, all to protect the most vulnerable…come out and attempt to shame and debunk a group of doctors who say they can help. I wear a mask, I social distance, but I almost died from a virus without a vaccine. A treatment saved me, yet the first action by half of our country was not to listen with hope, but to say one of the doctors had weird beliefs, therefore, we shouldn’t listen. The doctors couldn’t be right, especially since Trump mentioned a similar treatment in March.

I am not a Trump fan, not a Biden fan. At all. I think they both act like children. But, the lives of thousands should have NOTHING to do with which way you vote. Nothing. I don’t know the doctors in that vid, few of us do, but if there is help we should rationally consider it.

Covid has become a political conversation. Period. We may not want to admit it, but it has. If Trump says it, it’s wrong. If Trump says it, it’s right. And, that is a terrible mark on our maturity, intelligence and love for others.

Let’s be bigger than politicians who are attempting to be puppet masters in lieu of a November election. If a treatment works, we should shout it to the rooftops, no matter which way we vote.

Does it work for everyone? I don’t know. Are there side effects? Maybe, but I figured any side effect was better than dying. (The only side effect I can pinpoint was light sensitivity for about a week.) Bottomline, I was told there was no treatment option and I feel very blessed to have found one that worked. Why fight that if you/me/we truly care about others?

My thought? Let doctors make medical decisions and keep politicians where they belong. Let doctors do what they are trained to do, and let media be talking heads.

Stop trying to “debunk” everything that doesn’t agree with your political narrative. Please. Let’s be good and better humans.

If you know someone with Covid have them speak to their PCP. Get a second opinion, if needed. I wouldn’t recommend any regimen unless under the care of a physician. And, if you’re in the Dallas area, feel free to call Dr. Gomez’s office. There are doctors willing to help. Find one that will.

Mask Debate

Random person: “Wear your damn mask”

Me: The viral particles are much smaller than the pores of the mask, so the mask is ineffective at filtering them. Right?
R: No, they travel on droplets and the masks keep the droplets out. Or they keep them in if you’re sick.

Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

M: So wait, how is the virus transmitted?
R: Through droplets. Wear the mask.

M: Droplets?
R: Yes, like droplets spewed through a cough or sneeze.

M: So through people who are showing symptoms?
R: Yes

M: So why do healthy people need to wear masks?
R: Because of asymptomatic spread. Listen to the experts.

M: I am listening to the experts. Many studies show, and even the WHO announced, that asymptomatic transmission is exceedingly rare. Did you read that?
R: WHO walked that back to clarify that its presymptomatic spread that’s concerning.

M: Presymptomatic?
R: Yes, like they are infected but showing no symptoms.

M: Symptoms like coughing or sneezing?
R: Yes.

M: So how is the virus spread again?
R: Just wear the mask.

M: Are you going to answer the question?
R: It’s like pants.
M: Pants?

R: If a person pees in public without pants on, you have a greater chance of getting pee on you. Your risk is reduced further if you are wearing pants too.
M: First of all, people don’t pee in public. Second, if they did pee in public, the only way someone’s stream of urine would hit me is if they were directly aiming for me and standing close enough to hit me. And third, I don’t care if you wear pants. How does this relate?

R: If someone coughs on you in public you’ll care.
M: People don’t just cough on each other. The last time someone coughed directly in my face was when I had toddlers and they didn’t understand common courtesy and germ transmission. The only way someone would cough directly on me in public is if they were aiming. Anyway pants don’t keep the pee in, it’s still going to get everywhere. Pants just change the direction of the flow. Same with masks.

R: Common courtesy?! You don’t have common courtesy if you’re refusing to do something as simple as wearing a mask!
M: How is it courteous to ask me to do something I disagree with (based on research) especially when I’m not sick or showing any symptoms when the virus is spread through the droplets of people who are showing symptoms?

R: You’ll think differently if you get sick.
M: If I get sick, I’ll stay home. But if I must go out I will be happy to not cough on people. But just to clarify, would you stand near me in public if I were wearing a mask and coughing?

R: No, I mean, if you get sick, you could die.
M: The virus has a 99.9 something percent survival rate.

R: It’s not about you, it’s about protecting the vulnerable.
M: If I am not sick or showing symptoms how am I further protecting the vulnerable by wearing a mask? Studies also show these masks put the wearer at increased risk of illness.

R: You can’t listen to those studies, you need to listen to professionals in the fields of medicine and science.
M: These studies ARE from professionals in the fields of medicine and science.

R: They are obviously flawed.
M: How so?

R: It wouldn’t be a mandate if it weren’t important.
M: Why is it a mandate now that the death rate has plummeted when it wasn’t a mandate during the peak?

R: Because of new studies on masks.
M: So masks have never been studied before, in the entire history of medicine?

R: It’s a new virus.
M: A new virus that is transmitted in the same way as other viruses. How is it transmitted again? Through droplets of people showing symptoms? So, if I’m not sick or showing symptoms and I have no fever and I’m not coughing, how would my wearing a mask further prevent transmission?

R: Stop being an asshole and wear the mask.
M: So, you’re asking that I stop thinking critically, accept a fascist mandate, join the herd, and walk blindly into a dangerous abyss of ever increasing control over my self sovereignty, all while signaling my virtue?

R: I’ll report you if you don’t.
M: What country am I in again?

Michigan Protest of 30 Apr

Leon Wolf

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has instituted some of the harshest and arguably least constitutional stay-at-home orders in the country in response to the coronavirus pandemic, and as such has been the target of some eminently predictable protests. Ditch the fake news ==> Click here to get news you can trust sent right to your inbox. It’s free!

Whitmer, for her part, has largely dismissed the protests and the protesters with divisive and dismissive rhetoric, which she ratcheted up a notch during a television interview Sunday, when she claimed that the protests “depicted some of the worst racism and most awful parts of U.S. history” and that they specifically included people displaying “confederate flags, nooses and swastikas.”

Many in the media have uncritically repeated Whitmer’s claim about the protesters without verifying whether they are true or not.

After reviewing hundreds of pictures of the protesters that were posted on social media, and by media photography services like Getty Images, as well as news accounts from other media outlets repeating Whitmer’s claim, it appears that Gov. Whitmer’s claim is partially true, but misleading.

We were able to locate exactly two protesters who displayed swastikas on their signs while protesting. However, as you will see, no reasonable person would conclude that these people were displaying the swastika as a symbol of white supremacy. Rather, they were obviously using the swastika in an admittedly over-the-top criticism of the harshness of Whitmer’s policies.

The first one is not even technically a swastika, although it is certainly trying to be:

It should be noted that this picture was NOT taken at the April 30 rally that was the subject of Gov. Whitmer’s Sunday remarks, but rather at the April 15 protests that occurred on the steps of the state capitol. However, in the interest of being as fair as possible to Gov. Whitmer, and including all of the protests against her orders that have occurred, the above photograph should be noted.

The other sign featuring a swastika appears to be the only instance of a swastika being displayed at the April 30 protests. And, as you can see, no reasonable person could interpret the sign as being pro-Nazi or pro-Swastika:

Thus, the claim that swastikas have been on display at the protests against Whitmer is true; however, the claim that the swastikas were used as an expression of racism or white supremacy is clearly false. These protesters were not comparing Whitmer to Hitler because they are huge fans of Hitler and therefore also huge fans of Whitmer. Rather, they are comparing her to Hitler because, in their mind, that is the worst comparison that could be made. If anything, that is an expression opposing racism rather than supporting it.

Comparing Whitmer to Hitler, and suggesting that she is a tyrant deserving of “the rope” might well be criticized as over-the-top and/or unacceptable rhetoric. Neither of these displays, however, has any obvious racist intent. Nor would such displays even make sense within the context of a protest about stay-at-home orders, which have nothing to do with race or racism.

In conclusion, it is literally true that there was at least one swastika and at least one noose on display at the anti-Whitmer protests last Thursday. It is, however, false (or at the very least misleading) to claim that they were displayed as symbols of racism.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) has instituted some of the harshest and arguably least constitutional stay-at-home orders in the country in response to the coronavirus pandemic/dempanic, and as such has been the target of some eminently predictable protests.

The Corona Virus

Everyone wants to talk Corona virus… let’s talk about it. Let’s talk about how China was fighting against the Hong Kong protesters that were waving American flags and praising Trump…. gone.  The Iranian protestors asking for Trump’s help…gone.  Mysteriously gone.

Let’s discuss how Trump has been tough on China and trade and theft of intellectual property. Now China threatens to withhold the ingredients for medicines.  We’re suddenly aware that almost all of our medicines and vitamins are manufactured in China.  In China?  …the land of tainted dog food and toxic toys and sheetrock? Wet markets? PETA has the audacity to whine about America?

Let’s talk about how the democrats and main stream media have blamed Trump for everything since he was elected and have come out and said they hoped the economy and the stock market would crash to make him look bad.

Let’s talk about how we had a Harvard professor of bio chem working secretly for the Chinese and getting paid really well, while lying about his connections.

We all have seen how these leftist college professors have indoctrinated our young people and how nasty they’ve been towards anyone that supports Trump. We’ve all seen how far the leftist dems are willing to go to regain power while continuing to enrich themselves in corrupt deals and how the media has been used to promote their fake stories. Now we see them attempting to blame Trump for a Chinese virus and use the dem media to scare people and destabilize our markets.

Let’s talk about the Chinese girl that they’re looking for, that they think is now back in China, the one that had access to our defense department and military. How about the Chinese guy they busted at the airport with vials of bio materials hidden in his sock!

How about the China-spy driver that was discovered working for Congress-critter Feinstein?  Let’s talk about how there’s no more talk about protests in Venezuela.

How about the fact that there’s a bio lab in Wuhan, near that market they blamed and the professor had ties to that lab. Now China is trying to blame the virus on our military… makes no sense…since when do we have troops in China? How about Nancy Pelosi trying to sneak in abortion funding into the funding bill for the virus.

Let’s talk about all the scandals that aren’t being talked about now…. like Hunter and Joe Biden’s corruption in Ukraine or how Pelosi and Schiff abused power in congress to continue this never-ending witch hunt against our President.

So, all you sheep, go ahead and beat each other up over toilet paper and hand sanitizer. You’re now getting a taste of socialism at its finest.  Lack of supplies, waiting in line for things that there used to be plenty of, media scaring everyone while screwing the economy and only telling you only what they want you to know so that they can mentally enslave you.

Let’s look at Italy where they’re not going to treat the elderly because it’s too much spend on those past their most productive years and they want to treat the young people, there’s your socialized death panel medicine for you.

Go ahead and panic like dems want. The rest of us that are still sort of sane and are the last bastions of common sense are refusing to panic. We’re not falling for their transnationalistic garbage and yes, we will still vote Trump!
