Health Science 101 Guidelines

Greetings! Welcome to Health Science.

Here's where we talk about the latest fad diets, the advantages of vegetarianism, the joy of exercise and good health. Like everywhere else at Tweb our decorum rules apply.

This is a place to exchange ideas and network with other health conscience folks, this isn't a forum for heated debate.

    God hates me.

    As for a link, I guess I could have been clearer, but I wanted one to my "previous Fauci lab thread filled with breathless "fox guarding the henhouse" accusations."

    We got working internet switched on last Wednesday. I streamed my first discussion sessions from my property on Saturday after packing up the car tight for the last trip up on Thursday. The car's only about half emptied, more a reflection of the need to put in 20-hour days getting the two Saturday miniterm sections lined up and running before our first meeting, and the need to catch up on missing z's yesterday.

    That pic is from moments ago, taken from the front door of the Gulfstream I'm sitting in right now, the source of the shadow.

    Obviously, if I needed it more quickly, it didn't go in the trunk.

    My chair, who'd asked me to grab those two classes for her a couple months ago, also promised to get me all the supporting materials after the regular classes' first week hell was over, and then promptly caught a case of breakthrough covid. Five weeks later, that is, on Friday last week, she finally tested negative again, just in time for me to throw a fit saying my first Saturday class was meeting the next morning, at 8:30 am, and I was going with what I had. Instead, she canceled a crapload of meetings and worked with me downloading packages and getting them loaded up into Blackboard.

    The second class started at 12:30 pm Saturday. For reasons, it needs a standardized department syllabus, I got the department syllabus for that one at 7 am Saturday, while furiously putting last touches in on the 8:30 am class, so I didn't even read it until 10:30 am, two hours before the class started.

    It's been a week.

    So, linkys. That post was an amalgam of stories I've read over the past months, and one in particular from a couple weeks ago that lined up the remaining black, Hispanic, and white hesitators, which I can't seem to find now. But I did find a related Brookings article that I hadn't actually read previously, that identifies a KFF study I'd seen, confirmed by a recent Gallup poll, that was the basis for the story I'd read, most likely on NYTimes, WaPo, or WSJ, my daily reads.

    For COVID-19 vaccinations, party affiliation matters more than race and ethnicity
    .
    At the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccination push nine months ago, many experts worried—with justification—that people of color would be left behind. Sadly, it is a well-established fact that people of color suffer from poorer access to quality health care. And early on, there was some evidence of these disparities; in March of this year, for example, I documented inequities in vaccine share among Black Americans in Maryland. Fortunately, the situation has improved over time, in part because governments at every level have worked hard to make vaccines and accurate information available to everyone. According to a report from the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) released on Sept. 28, gaps in vaccination rates across racial and ethnic groups have virtually disappeared—while gaps reflecting political affiliation have widened substantially.

    Of Americans surveyed from Sept. 13-22, 72% of adults 18 and older had been vaccinated, including 71% of white Americans, 70% of Black Americans, and 73% of Hispanics. Contrast these converging figures with disparities based on politics: 90% of Democrats had been vaccinated, compared with 68% of Independents and just 58% of Republicans.

    A Gallup survey released on Sept. 29 confirmed the KFF findings. As of mid-September, 75% of adult Americans have been vaccinated, including 73% of non-Hispanic white adults and 78% of non-whites. Along party lines, however, the breakdown was 92% of Democrats, 68% of Independents, and 56% of Republicans.

    Did you think locating some iota-ish basis for your conspiracies would somehow rescue them?

    That's just darling.

    I saw your previous Fauci lab thread likewise filled with breathless "fox guarding the henhouse" accusations, which, to their credit, at least read more harmoniously than an NR insult. I recall your jaw-droppingly vacuous suggestion that a more contagious strain wouldn't be associated with a higher value for herd immunity. To put it gently, your math errors and poor media choices are less than meaningful indictments of Fauci. To turn the phrase to better use, your wounds are self-inflicted.

    This board is adequately filled with aging cheerleaders for the latest quack cure let loose on the American public as a direct result of sidelining Fauci from the Covid briefings he should have been leading. In their place, we were treated to daily doses of an aspiring Chavez pied piping poorly understood briefing materials. Hundreds of thousands of deaths could have been prevented were it not for the former guy's insistence on undercutting any member of the administration who stole limelight from the star of the Apprentice administration.

    The most adamant anti-Covid vaxx clingers remaining are no longer black or Hispanic. They're white, and evangelical, and Republican, and handing over Fauci's scalp to them will only serve to confirm their misapprehension of public health measures to the detriment of the rest of the country which has understandably grown angry with them. Public health workers are being forced to push back at a groundswell of opinion that the unvaccinated should be denied treatment.

    No, no more appeasements. It's time to rebuild the confidence in our public health system that the fringe media has torn down, and pushing back against these decapitation attempts is a good and necessary first step.

    I'm on record, many times, saying I don't want these holdouts to die. But I'm all the way okay with seeing them lose their livelihoods.

    Poor decisions lead to poor outcomes, and actions have consequences.

    I'd be happier sharing my thoughts on Hewitt, who gets sufficient space on WaPo to damn himself, but to his credit, proving that even a blind squirrel can sometimes find the nut, has been surprisingly rational on vaccinations. The loss of confidence Hewitt speaks of here is the direct result of an organized right fringe propaganda campaign in which Hewitt is himself complicit.

    Hewitt asks if Fauci should let the terrorists Hewitt is leading, win, a question that answers itself.

    Not least because Fauci is a national treasure with a history of service to the country spanning decades, leveraging science to cross all previous partisan divides. It was his influence that at last convinced Reagan to begin addressing the "gay plague."

    The only reason anyone is suggesting he should step aside is because he publicly disagreed with our twice-impeached national disgrace of no fixed ideology or political party, loosing upon him the wrath of a cult of personality that has already eaten conservatism whole and continues to pound nails into the coffin of what was in my youth a reliably moral mainstay of our society, evangelical Christianity.

    The last vaccine holdouts aren't holdouts because of antagonism toward Tony Fauci.

    They're holdouts because of their loyalty to Donald Trump.
