GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Gooferment diktats can not match the performance of a free market

Europe’s sky is filling up with near-empty polluting planes that serve little other purpose than safeguarding airlines’ valuable time slots at some of the world’s most important airports.

The highly contagious omicron variant of COVID-19 has put many off flying, and because of it, getting people and goods from point A to point B has become an afterthought for thousands of flights. It has created strange bedfellows, with environmentalists and major airlines united to cut down on empty or near-empty flights by pressuring the European Union — a pledged global leader in combating climate change — to tweak the rules on airport slots.

“The EU surely is in a climate emergency mode,” activist Greta Thunberg tweeted sarcastically this week, linking to a story about Brussels Airlines making unnecessary flights.

The company has said that if the EU doesn’t take action, it would have to fly some 3,000 journeys this winter primarily to safeguard its network rights.

German giant Lufthansa said it would have to fly an additional 18,000 “unnecessary” flights through the winter to hold on to landing slots. Even if the holidays brought a big increase in passengers — marked by thousands of flight cancellations that left travelers stranded — the rest of the winter period could be slow as omicron surges worldwide.

William Rusher, the editor of the conservative National Review, quoted economist Milton Friedman as saying that “if the government were to take over the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in five years.”

Ditto, landing slots?

If the airlines could “rent” landing slots from a private entrepreneur, then surely an effective and efficient solution could be found that the didn’t entail flying empty place around at a staggering cost?   But once the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats get involved everyone suffers.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Where is ur pappers!!!

It’s Official. “Vaccine Passports” Are Required In New York

So when does this end? Based on the information being offered by the state, it doesn’t. There is no mention of a sunset provision in these rules. The government may seriously be considering making this “the new normal.” And it’s not going to be restricted to just New York State. You can bet that almost all of the blue states (at a minimum) are going to copy this system in short order. Are we really going to put up with this? We are constantly scolded about any activities that carry a hint of what someone considers racism, sexism, or any other “ism” you’d care to name. But discrimination against the unvaccinated is apparently fine and dandy. This cannot be allowed to stand as the way society works going forward and our elected officials need to hear about this loud and clear.

In so many many ways, this is just WRONG!

It’s just another way to divide “We, The Sheeple”.

I will not comply.

Colorado boy dies of flu after mom took Facebook anti-vax group tips

Najee’s mother, meanwhile, told the station she feels as if she “failed” her son.“I’m hurting so bad right now and so is his dad and brothers,” she told KKTV. “Our whole family is hurting and it feels like we failed him because we did what we had to do.”

I think it’s reasonable to be afraid and concerned about the safety of vaccines. If they were “perfectly safe”, then there would be no need for a Federal Gooferment program — National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program! https://www.hrsa.gov/vaccine-compensation/index.html

That being said, I think it’s unreasonable to rely on a facebook group for medical advice. Argh! At least, “Doctor Google” provides lots of dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom) that you can study and form your “own” opinions.

Personally, I rely on doctors to give me their “best guess” on health issues. It’s still an art; not a science. And, their “best guess” is much better than mine.

I think I have to be an “intelligent consumer” of medical services. That means, don’t follow blindly. But ask questions and observe results and evidence. That’s why I try you follow the advice of Michael Greger at https://nutritionfacts.org/. He features evidence for his advice.

As with all my ravings and rantings in life and this blog, YMMV!

INTERESTING: Slow down the schedule

Aug. 29
Toxic Vaccines and Autism, Part 2.

*** begin quote ***

Dr. Wakefield felt that the vaccine could be causing inflammation of the colon in autistic children.  He never stated that MMR vaccine caused autism.  In fact, he stated at that meeting that we should spread out the vaccines and not give children too many vaccines when their immune system is not fully developed.  For that crime, he was persecuted and prosecuted by the media and the medical profession.  This recent study may or may not validate Dr. Wakefield’s research.  However, if it is found to be true, heads should roll.  CDC heads.

Has the MMR vaccine been studied properly? No. None of the childhood vaccines have been properly studied.  I am not anti-vaccine.  But, there needs to be better research about vaccines, especially in our children.  

To vaccinate our children (or anyone) with mercury, aluminum or formaldehyde (which are commonly found in many vaccines) is ludicrous. Autism rates are skyrocketing.  I have no doubt that it is the overall toxicity load that is causing this epidemic increase.  If you choose to vaccinate, I suggest to slow down the schedule and use vaccines that are single dosed and do not contain toxic agents.

I’m not a doctor; nor do I play one on TV.

I’m not a lawyer; nor do I play one on TV.

I’m not a parent; nor do I play one on TV.

(And, I can go on and on about what I am not!)

So please don’t take me or my ramblings as the authoritative source of medical, legal, or parenting advice.

I know a few parents who have been given the challenge of raising autistic children.

It seems that this doctor has very reasonable advice: slow the schedule and be careful.

I’m not a vax-er or an anti-vaxer. I’m not a D; nor an R. 

I have seen a relative die of the complications of polio after being reduced to a helpless human. And, it’s impact on our family. So, I’m for the benefits and against the side effects. Like choices can be made that way.

I don’t trust the Gooferment, politicians, and bureaucrats. Nor Big Pharma, Big Medicine, or Big Anything.

I pray for all the parents who have to make hard choices and live with the results of those choices.

A very difficult situation for all involved.
