THREAD: We organized a group of practicing physicians, many of whom have personally treated COVID-19 patients, and we spoke directly to the American people about our experience and understanding of the virus and it’s treatment options.

As a result:
-Facebook removed the livestream of our conference that had 15 million+ views

-Twitter forced us to delete video testimonials from our physicians

-Our web host removed our website and claimed a “violation of their TOS”

-The media smeared us with lies & falsehoods

Why are social media company employees with no medical degree or clinical experience censoring the perspectives of practicing physicians?

Why are journalists claiming hydroxychloroquine is ineffective when there are numerous studies showcasing its efficacy against COVID-19?

Why are state governors restricting physicians from prescribing an FDA approved medication for 65 years and empowering pharmacies to over-rule your doctor?

These actions are unprecedented and have never happened before in medicine.

Is the Biggby Black and Tan a concoction or a bean blend? I’ve only had the MI cherry. I tend to stick with stuff I like.

Great to see TK posting more today.

I forgot one of my bat stories. We get the occasional bat in the house call. Had one a couple of years ago from a house full of ladies enjoying a weekend away from their idiot husbands. A couple of us go in and find it behind a curtain upstairs. We try to finagle it into a net, but the little bastard flies away. We head downstairs, the ladies are screaming and running outside. This bat keeps flying around and I pulled off a one in a million midair snatch with my gloves hand. We walked outside where the screaming women are gathered and I toss the bat into the air well over their heads. Good times..

Back in the good old days when parents could recklessly endanger their kids by letting them ride in the back of a pickup we would always go up to my great uncle's place on Sundays and on the ride home, about ten miles, we would lay in back and watch the bats swooping over the truck in the dusk all the way down the windy slow road. Occasionally nighthawks and owls too.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--So that Newsom winery story has been debunked?--

Sort of. I wasn't interested enough to look into it even though I figured what was going is what was going on.

A Few Tips In Case You Find Yourself In A Mandatory "Anti-Racism" Struggle Session

My first tip is, it is a mistake ever to make a declaratory statement of any kind, even “yes,” “no,” or “I understand.” So, if asked to assent to something, or to say something, what do you do? The answer is, always respond with a question. Also, there is no need for the question that you pose to have anything to do with the question that has been posed to you. In fact, the less related your question is to the thing you are being asked to concede, the better. You can also try to ask a question even if no question has been posed to you. The point here would be to try to divert the “trainer” off his or her prepared outline or script, and onto something that challenges their assumptions.

Dave (in MA) urges me to keep up more with JOM lingo. OK, Dave (in MA), I'm trying. However, I can't figure out what this "bat talk" is all about. Surely not real bats! What's the hidden meaning? History of pine tar?
https://baseballhall.org/discover/inside-pitch/george-brett-pine-tar-game

I get a bat in the house about once a year. I get a broom and with the bat isolated in a room, swing the broom in a random motion until I hit it. Scoop up and release outside.

TM is entitled to be wrong on the internet.

Yeah, but as per the cartoon, you have to stay up all night arguing with him.

Captain Hate

From TC's link

Pine tar, a sticky glue-like substance used to give batters a better grip, hardens over time – making the bat more effective.

Hard to believe that's the reason for the rule; even if true was it based on any studies? I always assumed that on a regular wood bat it looked trashy.

I'd forgotten it happened with two outs in the ninth. Brett was always a good fastball pitcher and memorably tagged a mammoth upper deck shot against Gossage in an ALCS close out game.

hrtshpdbox

I think i might prefer going into a home with armed and violent drug dealers rather than a house with bars lurking.

When I first got out of the service, I had a friend who was enduring a couple of fruit rats breaking into his house at night searching for things to eat. I told him that if I were him I'm move my family into the Holiday Inn until the problem was solved, and he said "You'd fight people with guns but are afraid of house pests?", and I had to admit that was indeed the case.

If it makes you feel any better, I cant keep up with the JOM lingo either.

Thomas Collins,

When the Coronavirus-19 first appeared, the Chinese tries to say it came from a bat, instead of their lab. Before it was proven to be artificially created, this year's commemorative quarter was debuted, and it had a rare species of bat on it. The bat quarter is one in a series commemorating national parks, and it represents American Samoa.

The bat is the American flying fox. Here's a picture I grabbed frpm a coin dealer, which is why the Washington quarter is included.

We thought it was a weird coincidence to have a bat quarter appear right after the Chinese blamed the pandemic on a bat.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

Good one TC!

Re. the Arm story Neo linked upthread, my sense is this is a bit of a stunt by the Chinese, part of their campaign of harassing the west.

But you just have to shake ones head at the short-term greed of western companies. The Chinese been doing business this way for at least 40 years. You want their LCC labor, gotta give them a license for the tech and the know how to design it themselves. Eventually they’re your competitor.

Arm-designed micros are almost literally everywhere. Cars, “smart” appliances, industrial machinery. I’ll almost guarantee you have at least one if not more in your home right now.

Threadkiller

If so is anyone pleased with the job he's done?

Not anymore. They appear to have a basement strategy to wait the tornado out. While I cannot say that I know what is going on behind the scenes, the public presentation of “we are exporting ventilatiors” and “we closed of China” are akin to Al Bundy’s irrelevant high school football stories that propped him in faux glory 20 years later.

Something new and radical is the order of the day.

CH, Hard to believe that's the reason for the rule; even if true was it based on any studies? I always assumed that on a regular wood bat it looked trashy.

We actually did a study on it at ginormous research. Total bullshit. There was no way in hell that the pine tar had any effect on the dynamics of the wood. Oh, and we never bothered with an analytical model, because there wasn’t anyone in our group stupid enough to believe you could conjure a model of that and get within an order of magnitude of the actual test results.

Needless to say, we also avoided climate research.
