We cannot allow that to happen.
The insulin pricing problem is a result of the government regulating business.
The health-care market has failed to produce high-quality, low-cost medicine for two reasons: consumers are insulated from the cost of medical care by third-party payers, and information on the performance of competing physicians is not available.
When bureaucrats speak of their stakeholders, they mean their employees and the industry they manage, not the citizens.
The CDC’s great lockdown, mandate, and unaccountable bureaucratic “follow the science” people control experiment was an enormous flop. Abolish the CDC.
Two years later the CDC has embraced the Great Barrington Declaration rather than doing a “quick and devastating takedown” as Francis Collins and Anthony Fauci called for the day after its release.
The bulk of Dr. Deborah Birx’s book is a brag fest about how she kept subverting the White House’s push to open up the economy – that is, allow people to exercise their rights and freedoms.
Among the best tennis players of all time, and also possibly the healthiest human being on the planet who is obsessive-compulsive about his fitness, Djokovic was unable to play in the Australian Open because he refused to take a Covid vaccine. Now he faces the repeat prospect of the Biden administration barring him from entering to compete in the US Open, even though unvaccinated Americans can compete.
In his zeal to protect the nonexistent entity known as “the public,” Fauci ignores the individuals who comprise the public. Individuals don’t matter to Fauci or any other would-be tyrant.
It is precisely because our health care is so important to each of us that we need to be especially careful to preserve and protect the rights of physicians and other health care providers.
The massive political power for unelected bureaucrats to arbitrarily dehumanize Americans with mandates, fines, lockdowns, and prison at whim is what the Biden Administration, DOJ, and CDC are now fighting for.
“Scott Atlas stated the simple fact that immunity is higher than those with antibodies, whereupon Dr. Fauci criticizes him without contradicting what was actually said. Stating a simple scientific fact is not ‘extraordinarily inappropriate.’ What is going on?”
Eban’s article adds tremendous detail about the great lengths to which our Fauci-led cabal of officials worked hard to suppress dissent on the question of lab-vs-natural origin.
The vaccine for this virus should never have been mandated. Having done so, public health has done itself deep harm. One wonders if the reputation of vaccines in general can recover.
This battle is much larger than the legal status of Ivermectin. What’s really at stake here is the idea of medical freedom itself. And freedom is a precondition for scientific inquiry and the search for the truth. It is also essential for health.
By all means, forget about Covid and live life as normally as possible in defiance of those who live to foster fear. But, never forget the disastrous Covid restrictions that created such destruction. We cannot let anyone off the hook, much less pretend that the policy disaster that created billions of personal tragedies never happened.
Yesterday, Florida followed Norway by not recommending the Covid vaccine for children. The CDC recommends them.
The science behind pandemic management needs to be decentralized and include genuine discussion and debate rather than allowing a small cabal to take full power while censoring everyone else.
CDC’s drastic reversal on vaccine mandates seems little to do with a change in “the science,” and more to do with improving Democrats’ dismal approval ratings ahead of the November elections.
Politicians like to talk about bringing the price of prescriptions down, but per usual, the true leaders in society actually do it.
Medical freedom for all would and should include insurance rates and employment contracts that accounted for avoidable risks. And such freedom ends where another person’s reasonable risk ends.
Rather than forcing the vaccine on the young or those with natural immunity, we should focus on vaccinating more older Americans, as well as older people in other countries. That is what will keep the mortality numbers down
Our children are the most vulnerable minority. It is wrong to force them to risk their physical health and wellbeing as part of a scientific experiment, because we adults are afraid of what a virus will do to us.
For most viruses, natural immunity is better than vaccine-induced immunity, and that is also true for Covid.
