You know what the problem with hydroxychloroquine (+ zinc and, if in the early-to-mid stages of COVID-19 illness, azithromycin) is???
 
It dawned on me today as I listened to Neil Cavuto as well as Dagen McDowell pump Moderna stock due to their vaccine breakthrough BUT totally knock (the) hydroxychloroquine+ (COVID-19 treatment regimen) and try to poo-poo any doctor who would not go along with the poo-pooing full-throatedly. Totally contrary to the TDS-prompted, initial, speculative reportage about Trump's having investments in hydroxychloroquine, the problem is as follows...
 
There is NO money in it for the fat cats and big pharma!!!
 
It is like the exact inverse of what we have been led to believe by the MSM (and, say, Juan Williams, whose opinion is obviously, merely political because if not, then he is just THAT totally ignorant on the matter, which is hard to believe).
 
Hydroxychloroquine is dirt cheap! There is NO money in it! Big pharma does not want to mass-produce it! Investors see no incentive!

Seriously,... if you find yourself HATING a medicine because of politics ( "I HATE you, acetaminophen!"), you need to get your head checked and start consulting some different news sources!  It is worse yet if you think of yourself as moderate or apolitical in your views.  I mean that is the definition of a political pawn!

ONE of the root causes of what we are seeing transpire with these public displays of hatred, vengeance and anarchy is the TOTAL one-party rule of these inner cities. Mind you, my point is not partisan, per se, though the one-party, deep-blue rule of these inner cities far exceeds, say even, Alabama-level red. That said, the point here is that whenever ONE party is in such TOTAL control, they do not need to keep their promises because they know they got your vote. When a party leader can truthfully say out loud about an inner-city district that her party could run a glass of water against the other party's candidate and win (look it up), that is an insult to the intelligence of the people of that district. She is saying that they own your vote and they can do whatever they want! The bottom line is that when there are two parties up and running robustly in an area, the people can play the parties... against each other. But, when there is only one party running the show, the party plays the people... against each other!

I hear people wonder out loud, "Why loot and set fire to these businesses, moreover, that are largely black-owned/operated? It makes no sense to destroy and burn down your own community." (Of course, if the problem was just that, the solution is easy,... right? Gulp... That adjustment has already begun to be made, in fact. But, I digress...)
 
Folks, start waking up, and smell the coffee! An incident is just the spark. The toxicity filling the air is ideological and opportunist. It does not matter who the "business owner" is. The problem is that there is a "business owner". The targets of this toxic groupthink are capitalism, Americanism, Western civilization.
 
I fear that this is going to be news to most and that this question is not even going to register for some. But, what did we think was going to happen when what the youth have been being inundated and indoctrinated with (at the expense of a good education, mind you) for at least the last quarter century in our colleges and universities and high schools and now even middle and elementary schools, public for sure and now even private, is anti-capitalism, anti-Americanism and anti-Western civilization???
 
My daughter's fifth-grade teacher is going for her Master's in education (so-called Schools of Education are the ultimate root cause of the downfall of education in America and a significant root cause of all this mayhem we are witnessing, but that is a different topic for a different day). Mind you, what follows here is only anecdotal, but it is also just the tip of the iceberg... When we went in to our daughter's school last week to pick up her belongings from her desk and locker, I asked the teacher about how her education classes have been going. She exasperatingly said how unbelievable it was how anti-colonialism and the position that, and I quote, "Everything white is bad," pervaded the program.
 
Folks, we want less civil disobedience and more riots... The recipe is simple... Keep on romanticizing world history and globalism, glorifying socialism and communism, and promoting emotionalism and relativism in our schools and politicizing our classrooms while unrelentingly bashing capitalism, hypercriticizing America's history, eschewing objectivity and rationalism, and degrading white people! Stated in more concrete terms, keep on teaching the amazing feat of the construction of the pyramids of Egypt while minimizing slavery in Egypt (see the lengths in theorization that "scholars" are willing to go to towards these ends,... "permanently consigned artisans" ) but emphasizing slavery in colonial and post-colonial North America while deemphasizing the American Civil War and not even mentioning the period of indentured servitude and, say, any of THIS (and that is from leftwing Snopes)!
 
Mind you, to do "critical history" is to play with fire and should not be the way history is primarily done,... warned the guy who coined the phrase, Nietzsche (look it up).
 
There is a fine line between the spirit of justice and the spirit of revenge! What we are witnessing at the moment is NOT the spirit of justice.  You can go ahead and finish the disjunctive syllogism yourself...

Outside of black antifa members and supporters like CNN's Don Lemon (citation), the refrain "black lives matter" is just used by antifa! For them, racism, no less George Floyd, is NOT what this is about. They have NO compunction about targeting and taking the lives of black men, Patrick Underwood, David Dorn: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/may/31/dave-patrick-underwood- named-black-fps-officer-kil/ and https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jun/2/david-dorn-retired-st-lo uis-police-captain-killed-/!!! Oh, and no arrests. Probably never will be...
 
Mind you, antifa are not that many in number (and most of them are wussies), so they wait for some tragic event like one of the nineteen unarmed white nine unarmed black men who were killed by police in America in 2019 (citation), like what tragically occurred last Memorial Day Monday, and then they use black people's anger, hijack their protest, and use black protestors to fight for antifa's anti-American, Marxist cause!
 
Communism is the end that justifies the means. Racism is just a means to that end!
 


Then, on a different note, as if on queue,...

... an "Egyptologist" of all things steps up nobly with calming words of... "wisdumb":

"All lives matter," generally speaking an obvious truth even if banal, has nonetheless been deemed by Black Lives Matter to be racist. I kind of get their point, which is that black lives matter, too, and so pointing out the obvious, general truth that all lives matter misses the point. Fine (even if dismissing obvious, general truths is not such a good idea). Then, the comeback is that "Blue lives matter." Well, sure,... but that ain't workin'. That just sets up a tit-for-tat us against them.
 
Is it not time for the BLM movement to take it to the next, fully forthright ethical level, indeed, not by dismissing the obvious, general truth that all lives matter but by combining it with the idea that black lives matter, and advocating for the position that "ALL black lives matter"??? #AllBlackLivesMatter
 
How can one make the "ALL Black Lives Matter" movement happen??? Well, try to incorporate in the movement's platform and protest signage and rhetoric some information and photos of these black people who have died trying to do good ...

... OR, MOREOVER, these black people who have been dying en masse, which would be more indicative of "systemic or institutional racism", insofar as it exists, than the 10 unarmed black people whose lives ended at the hands of police in 2019 (this is the Memorial Day weekend leading into the Floyd incident) ...
 
At least 50 people were shot in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend. The next day, another 28 were shot, including a 5-year-old girl standing with her family. TEN DEAD!
 
A little, FIVE-YEAR-OLD girl! For God's sake, you want support for a movement that advocates for raising awareness about the (systematic/incessant) loss of black lives in America,... alongside George Floyd's and Amaud Arbery's faces and stories, get the faces and stories of this little girl and these TEN black people who lost their lives in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend as well as David Dorn's and Dave Patrick Underwood's out there! Then, you have a wholistic movement that a whole country (and not just opportunistic,... Marxist antifa members, wealthy athletes and entertainers, and privileged academics, media pundits and politicians) can get behind!
