These days Littell is more focused on ivermectin and is busy writing prescriptions for folks in other states who cannot get a local physician to do it. He is also continually writing medical exemptions from vaccine mandates.

How does this idiot keep his medical license?

The skirt that handed Florida to GWB was a horse lover too.  Not in that way.  Geez.  Are horses running Florida?  If they take over, they'd do it on a Houyhnhnms.

Agreed it's not making a dent. Evolution is not a linear process and it is not always for the better.

There were only 900 in attendance but there are likely to be many community spread infections once they return home.  The hell of it is that pathogens tend to evolve (be selected) to become less fatal over time.  The other way would be better.

They will take anything except the vaccine that has been made to help prevent catching the virus.

We should tell them that taking Molly will prevent COVID. Then when they are in the proper mindset, suggest that it would be fun to get the vaccine.

doctorguilty: Everyone: "DARWIN! DARWIN! DARWIN!"


Because we couldn't farking mask up or distance (or stop using horse paste and antibiotics and antifungals and antiparasitics to treat a farking viral infection) last April/May, Darwinian evolution produced several variants that do more damage and spread more virulently.

Darwin cuts both ways.

If the antivaxxers started being rounded up and disappeared by the government, and someone quoted me the Niemoller poem, I still wouldn't say anything until they came for a second group of people. As I recall, the guy in the poem doesn't end up with no one to speak for him until 4-5 groups of people are rounded up. So technically, under the right circumstances, letting one slide can be kinda of an acceptable loss.

I bet a lot of folks will be traveling for the holidays this year, meeting with lots of other unmasked deniers. Some call it the Mark of the Beast.

But it is more like the Mark of the Passover, with the Angel of Death ravaging those who won't shelter inside. A self weeding garden. I have pity for the innocent people they will infect.

If you're on an island and you've got a ball and chain around your leg and you want to swim to mainland, it probably would help you to have a bolt cutter. If you don't have a ball and chain around your leg, why would you want a bolt cutter? Similarly, if you've been debilitated by intestinal parasites AND have contracted COVID, then it makes sense to get rid of the parasites to help your body battle COVID.

I realized these are the modern witches and understand what witch trials and witch burning were all about in earlier eras.  It was about combating fear with fear.

I'm not talking about Wicca, Harry Potter, Bewitched -- I'm talking about the obscene pushing an anti-science narrative, stoking fear, and using the opportunity to steal from the poor and gullible.  These guys practice a very dark evil.  There is nothing for Freud or Jung to decorate in their motives.

Ivermectin is a "potion to cure."   These, very calculating men, are selling poison, just the same way that they would hide at the fringe of "natural and magical healers" back in the day.

They should all be burned as witches, as soon as harmless and poetic from children's stories are protected.

If you have looked at the charts lately, it's starting to creep back up again and the last wave didn't go down close to baseline like previous waves.  That could mean big trouble this winter, especially with the holidays looming.

He contended that the pharmaceutical industry was "spooked" by soaring sales of a drug cheap enough to be used on livestock. He praised Aaron Rogers, the Green Bay Packers quarterback whose positive COVID test led to him revealing he is unvaccinated. Rogers was placing his faith in ivermectin.

"He said some sensational things," Kory continued. "He's not confused about how to navigate the world right now. He's like, number one, we're giving billions to pharma. They try to attack these cheap drugs. He says, 'I have a strong belief in these cheap drugs."


so they LURV ivermectin because it's old and cheap? but they hate "BIG Pharma"? who the hell do they think MAKES that cheap-but-human-grade ivermectin? the kind used to treat river blindness, lymphatic filariasis (elephantitis of the limbs), head lice, and other human parasites?

because if this should-lose-his-license doc is writing nationwide scripts for it, that's what he's prescribing. it is STILL manufactured by "big pharma", not some "artisanal" ivermectin producer in some trailer in ocala, FL!

and all 3 US approved vaccines are still FREE! sure the federal government is paying for them, but there's no out of pocket cost to citizens. something not true of ivermectin!

and DeathSantis has been taking advice from this dude? some small time family practice doc in interior florida horse and cow country?

and now he's gone and made an internist with an interest in health policy of cardiovascular disease our new surgeon general? a dude who lives and breathes for his paychecks from "America's Frontline Doctors" and agrees with this family practice quack? and we know DeathSantis was also being "guided" by an antivaxx child psychiatrist in california?

why the F*CK won't DeathSantis take covid "advice" from epidemiologists and virologists?

if i have a sinus infection i don't go to the podiatrist! when i developed ovarian cancer i didn't ask a random family practice doc to do the surgeries! if i need advice on my tomato plants, i ask a local state university extension service full of master gardeners and resident horticulturists, but i do NOT ask the child psychologists, or engineers, or law professors, at that same university!

medicine has specialized fields for a reason. and it's extremely telling that all of these anti-vaxx pro ivermectin "docs" are cardiologists, internists, family practice, psychiatrists, even a pulmonologist or two, but NOT a single epidemiologist, virologist, or specialist in emerging and/or zoonotic diseases...........

i HATE these anti-science charlatans. and i HATE DeathSantis more.

luna1580: and all 3 US approved vaccines are still FREE! sure the federal government is paying for them, but there's no out of pocket cost to citizens. something not true of ivermectin!


Even if we had to pay at the point of administration for the vaccine, it's about $20 a vial ($40 for a two-dose course, $60 if you get a booster).

Ivermectin retails for about $100 ($30 with discounts).
Hydroxy retails for about $100-200 (also roughly $30 at discount price - $20 if you get to Costco).

Oh, and neither of those actually works.

Remdesivir (which does have the benefit of being effective against COVID) is about $520 per vial, over 3 grand for a full treatment course.
Monoclonal antibody therapy (which also works, but only once you have contracted the disease, which introduces some risk) is about $2,100.
