01) Naomi Klein on How Healthcare Industry & Silicon Valley Plan to Profit from Coronavirus Crisis

“As the top infectious disease expert testifies to the Senate that needless death and suffering could result from reopening too quickly, author and journalist Naomi Klein says a “pandemic shock doctrine” is beginning to emerge. The U.S. healthcare industry “sees a potential bonanza” in the coronavirus, she says, which represents “a win for them.” She also details how our lives could be transformed into a “living laboratory for a permanent — and highly profitable — no-touch future” that benefits tech companies providing the so-called solutions to the crisis, including in healthcare, education and surveillance.”


What Does It Do To a Person?…


Date: May 16, 2020

What does it do to a person who so clearly had sexual frustration issues as a child and youth…to eventually come to the discovery that avenues for addressing their sex drive have always existed for them, biologically inborn within our species…but those avenues were blocked by social and legal prohibition?

“Trump supporters are now terrorizing reporters.

A local news correspondent was subjected to verbal abuse, threats, and was even stalked while trying to report from a demonstration protesting the lockdown in New York State Thursday.

Kevin Vesey, a reporter for News 12 Long Island, posted the footage to his Twitter feed Thursday evening. It depicted an unruly group of protesters, in the Commack section of Long Island, hurling verbal barbs at him while he was trying to file a live report.

01) “Coronavirus Karen” Probably Regrets Not Wearing A Face Mask

“Sounds like “Coronavirus Karen” may have coronavirus.

One of President Donald Trump’s supporters who gained viral infamy for refusing to wear a mask at Trader Joe’s now fears she has the coronavirus.

Genevieve Peters last week was asked to leave the California grocery, and employees called police, after she pulled a borrowed mask down below her chin, and Thursday she revealed on her Facebook page that she was experiencing some symptoms of coronavirus infection.



Why Mike’s Debate with Styxhexenhammer666 Never Happened – Drunken Peasants Clip…

01) Why Mike’s Debate with Styxhexenhammer666 Never Happened – Drunken Peasants Clip

For a year or so, I used to share the videos of Styxhexenhammer666 on this blog…The posts are still available, as I always used to write responses to the interesting things he was discussing.

He used to be generally left leaning, but changed [grifted?] somewhere along the line.

You could say it was quasi experimental on my part…but I wanted to incorporate dialogue with smaller channels, into this blog…not just the slick, professional channels that were obviously trying to make money off of their channel, first and foremost…And this was the era in which I was frequently posting and responding to, videos from Styxhexenhammer666 and Sargon of Akkad…an era which is now well in the past.

I don’t believe it was a bad era…and it led to a lot of inspired writing from me…So, I appreciated it, sincerely.

It was pretty much over, when Styxhexenhammer666 decided to leave a very ignorant, nasty response to one such post of mine…You can find it linked in the Fear, Threat and Attack Files, by just doing a page search for his name.

Despite this little spat of nastiness…I’m genuinely sad to learn of his path of self destruction…though, anymore, I’m honestly not shocked.


Elon Musk Throws Twitter Tantrum…

01) Elon Musk Throws Twitter Tantrum

“Elon Musk is throwing a Trump-level temper-tantrum.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed Monday he’s flouting county rules by reopening a Northern California plant amid concerns over safety during the coronavirus crisis, tweeting: “I will be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me.”

The parking lot of the Fremont, Calif., facility was full, Fox 2 reported, even as Musk and Almeda County officials continue to spar over shelter-in-place rules that have prevented the electric-vehicle giant from reopening since March 23.

Musk tweeted, “Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules. I will be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me.” He also wrote: “California approved, but an unelected county official illegally overrode. Also, all other auto companies in US are approved to resume. Only Tesla has been singled out. This is super messed up!



Drugs, Addiction and Pedophilia…

01) Drugs, Addiction and Pedophilia

“The Valance Issue Episode 9: Drugs, Addiction and Pedophilia

I outline my experiences with prescription drug use, abuse and rehab. Unfortunately, marginalized/oppressed people often feel the need to turn to drugs to fill the void created by society. It is no measure of good health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
