‘Vaccine Police’ Founder Claims Drinking Urine Is Covid-19 Antidote
https://www.forbes.com/sites/brucelee/2 ... 0464637356

Yes, Christopher Key, who maintains the “Vaccine Police” anti-vaxx website, is apparently now touting urine therapy. In this case, urine therapy is not sitting down with a jug of your urine and talking about its feelings. Instead, it’s drinking your own urine, because why not, right? After all, what won’t anti-vaxxers and others pushing different so-called alternative therapies try to convince you to do instead of getting Covid-19 vaccines?

[snip]

Key tried to support his assertion by saying, “This has been around for centuries,” which is what you could also say about body lice, toe fungus, and sloth dung. He also mentioned “research” and “peer-reviewed publications on urine,” without offering much more specifics on these. It would have been helpful to hear more about this supposed research and how the studies were designed since it’s not easy to find such “pee-reviewed” studies in the scientific literature. For example, a PubMed search for “urine therapy” and “Covid-19” today returned zero results, which is exactly the same number of results that you get when you search for “I am a gigantic egg carton.”

[snip][end]

So got it? What Trump was doing in that Moscow hotel room was PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE. :lol:

P.S. don't believe everything you read on the Internet about your urine being "sterile" and "harmless" either. The author goes into that.
that reminds me of a show I saw years ago before the covid

EXCLUSIVE: Sarah Palin Seen Dining At NYC Restaurant TWO DAYS After Covid Diagnosis

Sarah Palin returned to Elio’s restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper East Side Wednesday night — just two days after testing positive for Covid-19.

As seen in photos obtained by Mediaite, the former Alaska governor, who is unvaccinated, dined at the establishment in a heated outdoor area on Wednesday. She dined at the same eatery on Saturday, but indoors, in violation of New York City’s dining vaccine mandate. The city requires restaurants to verify the vaccination status of its customers for indoor dining.

The only one more ridiculous than Palin here is whoever decided to let her into the restaurant. Sounds like someone needs to pay a whopping fine. NYPD is busy sitting around Times Square letting people murder passers-by and subway riders, and then putting up yellow tape around the blood spots, but there should be someone here to do some major enforcement.

Fuck You Rogan

Rogan responds to Spotify protest, COVID advisories

NEW YORK (AP) — Following protests of Spotify kicked off by Neil Young over the spread of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation, the music streaming service said that it will add content advisories before podcasts discussing the virus.

In a post Sunday, Spotify chief executive Daniel Ek laid out more transparent platform rules given the backlash stirred by Young, who on Wednesday had his music removed from Spotify after the tech giant declined to get rid of episodes of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” which has been criticized for spreading virus misinformation.

Israel to allow unvaccinated tourists into country

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel announced Sunday that it would allow unvaccinated tourists to enter the country beginning next month as the latest wave of the coronavirus recedes.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said that foreign tourists, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, would be required to take PCR coronavirus tests before their flights and upon landing. The rules go into effect on March 1.

Since I know in the past we've had a long debate about which states handled COVID better, and that debate focused on death rates, and what type of policy worked best.

OK. Shall we look at the February data? A more thorough analysis could be done, but I'll just pick out a few states,

Here's some data as of February 2022. From Beckers Hospital. I think the per capita rate is the one of interest.
https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/p ... uly-1.html

Tennessee
Deaths per 100,000: 1.43

West Virginia
Deaths per 100,000: 1.36

Florida
Deaths per 100,000: 0.88
...................
California
Deaths per 100,000: 0.49

New York
Deaths per 100,000: 0.32

Maryland
Deaths per 100,000: 0.22

I know some people have been touting this bullshit that blue states didn't fare any better than red as far as COVID deaths.

As of the latest data, we can see why that claim is full of shit. We can debate exactly what it tells us, but that specific claim is wrong. (I certainly don't think it tells us "non-pharmaceutical interventions didn't work." Though I admit it probably also has to do with vaccine policy and uptake.)

That is all.

Florida breaks with CDC, recommends no COVID vaccine for healthy children

March 7 (Reuters) - Florida's top health official said on Monday the state would recommend against the COVID-19 vaccine for healthy children, breaking with guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In announcing the move during press briefing convened by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the state's surgeon general Dr. Joseph Lapado cited studies that showed few COVID fatalities among healthy children and elevated risk among young boys receiving the vaccine of side effects such as myocarditis.

Long Island teacher charged with using fake COVID-19 vaccination card

NASSAU COUNTY (WABC) -- A high school teacher on Long Island is facing charges, accused of submitting a forged vaccination card in an attempt to avoid Nassau County's COVID rules.

Tricia Manno, 47, who works in the Sewanhaka Central High School District, is believed to be the first teacher in the state to face felony charges for such an offense.

As you have pointed out in the past per capita rates are missleading when comparing micro population with macro population.
For example a few years ago York SC had a larger murder rate than New York City. Because we had 6 murders during a gang fight.
I would say the numbers you present are very compatible when you factor in the difference in population as well as the number of retirees moving into some of the states.

I have never said that. Per capita rates are the best data to look at when deciding prevalence.

After all, saying "100 people died in this town from drowning in March" ... well, it depends on whether we are talking about a town of 1000 or a town of 100,000. To see how much there is a drowning problem.

The data is out there.

For red and blue America, a glaring divide in COVID-19 death rates persists 2 years later
Post-vaccine, death rates in red states were 38% higher than in blue states.

https://abcnews.go.com/Health/red-blue- ... d=83649085

MHO: though it is hard to separate causality here, I think the higher death rate in red states was due both to lack of mitigation as well as lack of vaccination. And policy played a role in that as well as demographics, meaning blue states were more aggressive in promoting both mitigation and vaccination.

Click the link today and you get a different perspective.

Tennessee is tied with New York and Maryland. California is higher than South Carolina, Alabama, Florida.

That is a 7 day average, not a cumulative total, so I expect things will change weekly, of course.

But anyway as of April 28th, the top five states are:

Montana
Kansas
West Virginia
Kentucky
Nevada

Read your tea leaves as you wish.

The ABCNews article I posted above, well the data say what they say.

This is from the link you posted. So your post was based a 7 day average. Your ignorance.


Red state blue state comparisons are stupid. Indiana is considered red state. Has a high gun violence rate. But most of the gun violence is from Indianapolis which is as blue as you can get.

It’s not stupid because you don’t like facts. Pro Trump Conservatives in red counties have died at a greater rate due to Covid disinformation. Not sure why you’re comparing gun violence in a Covid thread.

Still arguing with the con, I see.

You have more energy than I do. Not sure what guns have to do with Covid, but I do know that the vast majority of Covid deaths and sickness could have been a fraction of what it is if their leader didnt purposely ignore it.

Would be even better now if their leaders judge didnt ignore the law and rule against the CDC.

Depends on the comparison.

Concur they often are. There was a fella a while back who was claiming they prove COVID mitigation strategies don't work, based on comparative state death rates. That argument was wholly fallacious. Only reason I bothered.

If you want to discuss gun violence comparisons, BTW, that is for a different thread.

The one comparison that sure bugs me is how blue states support red states, year after year after year after year. :twisted: I would love to NOT be angry about this and I would not be if most red states were not fascist killers.

Prosecutors: NYC investment adviser blamed in $5B fraud

NEW YORK (AP) — Bus drivers, subway conductors and religious and charitable organizations nationwide lost over $5 billion when a COVID-induced stock market collapse crushed private investment funds linked to a financial industry giant, exposing a massive fraud, authorities said Tuesday.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said his office took the rare step of bringing criminal charges against Allianz Global Investors US LLC, a New York City-based investment adviser, in part because the company failed to reveal an “egregious, long running and expensive fraud” before the Securities and Exchange Commission discovered it.

Judge says CDC can't end the Title 42 rule that allows for quick expulsion of migrants
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/title-42-m ... dge-rules/

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cannot move forward with a plan to discontinue pandemic-related emergency rules that allow U.S. border agents to rapidly expel migrants to Mexico or their home countries on public health grounds, a federal judge in Louisiana ruled Friday.

Judge Robert Summerhays of the U.S. District Court in Lafayette, Louisiana, issued a preliminary injunction blocking the Biden administration from ending the restrictions, known as Title 42, on May 23, when the CDC had planned to stop authorizing the border expulsions.

Agreeing with arguments presented by Republican attorneys general who sued the Biden administration, Summerhays, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, said the CDC had improperly terminated Title 42, a public health authority enacted during World War II.

Pandemic restrictions for me? Nay, but maintain outmoded pandemic restrictions for thee, asylum seekers. It was an emergency order; CDC itself has said the pandemic is now endemic, no more emergency; why maintain the order?
