Today In Insanity: Volume IV
*Prince George County Public Schools CEO Monica Goldson has indicated that students will be required to remain masked in classrooms-- and anywhere on school property-- until such time as the coronavirus “no longer exists.” Which is unfortunate, as nearly all public health authorities now say it will never “go away.” Masks, at the very least, repel young children’s cognitive development, render them less attuned to facial signals, and cause them to view their fellow human beings primarily as carriers of disease. But many teachers, administrators-- and especially teachers’ unions-- don’t care.
*A new study recently released by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed the development of myocarditis and pericarditis after mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccination. The study found that the rates of myocarditis and pericarditis were highest in adolescent males and young men, particularly after they had received the second dose. This, of course, prompted Dr. Fauci to state that children aged 4 and younger will likely need 3 doses of the vaccines if and when they are approved for children that age by the FDA. Why not make it mandatory for everyone to have at least as many COVID vaccinations as the number of years they have been alive. A one-year-old could get vaccinated and then get another vaccination when he or she turns two, followed by booster shots at ages three, four, five, etc. By this logic, Dr. Fauci himself should have been injected 81 times by now.
*Jonathan Finer, President Joe Biden’s Deputy National Security Advisor, recently appeared on CNN to explain to Americans that they need to care about Ukraine because “borders should be inviolate” and “sovereignty should be respected.” Like, say, his own nation’s border with Mexico, where tens or hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens cross into the U.S. every month? Incredible. This is like Michael Moore telling Brian Stelter that we have to do something about obesity…in Ukraine.
*In keeping with recent Olympic tradition, Beijing Olympics organizers are going to pass out large quantities of condoms to athletes. Even journalists who recently checked into the Guizhou Hotel found five condoms in each room, packaged in different-colored envelopes decorated with an image of a Chinese lantern. (A red Chinese lantern traditionally symbolized a prosperous business and/or a thriving life.) The ubiquitousness of prophylactics is a bit odd, given that the athletes are also to be instructed to minimize hugging, handshakes, and high-fives……and to maintain a social distance of at least two meters from fellow competitors. I mean, a guy can dream, but…
*Michigan State University has banned in-person learning until at least January 31st, but has allowed 15,000 screaming fans to attend each and every one of the Spartans’ home basketball games this month. No elaboration is required.
