A Hershey making too much noise GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, Hershey ran into something in the dark hallway and spooked him and me! Damn Dog!
Monday Musings Ed-vise today. Cause it’s MONDAY… so get after it!
One of the podcasters I enjoy is a guy named Brett Weinstein on Darkhorse podcast.
He and his wife put out some pretty good, thought provoking stuff. Both are PhD biologists. He almost won a Nobel for his research on cells.
Well, they put out some information that has become controversial to say the least. Partly because it was on the jackass parody show called Tucker Carlson.
It relates to a statement made about a drug called Ivermectin. This drug we used on cows and horses. I say “we” because, yes, I spent many a summer on the family farm de-worming cows and horses with Ivermectin. It’s used to kill parasites.
Apparently there is some research being done that it works against COVID-19. Fine. The more drugs to combat the disease, the better.
So, you have many anti-vaxers taking this drug. Some have died.
The Weinsteins advocate for the free access to science. Brett was pointing out that “IF” this drug works, then we have another weapon in the fight.
I advocate for taking the vaccine. Any of them. I also advocate that if something works, do it! Weinstein has ALWAYS said COVID is real and it is dangerous. He has never denied that. He points out there are dangers with the vaccine as well due to the lack of research (that is ongoing). I am advocating to not silence Brett for his comments. Allow the conversation and the research to happen so that, if indeed, there is another effective treatment of COVID, we can bring it to the people.
At the same time, don’t condemn the existing vaccines on a presumption based on less research.
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember smoking will kill you and bacon will kill you, but smoking bacon…will cure you! HAHAHAHAHHAHA…hmmm…HAHHAHAHA!
