The CDC has released a gigantic romp through the Covid hospitalization and death data. Some fascinating things I did not expect have emerged.The bad news is that 8 comorbidities are highly correlated with worse outcomes and/or death. The good news is that a bunch of comorbidities seemed to not make things any worse, and might have even been slightl…
 
Want to understand why people are fractured into groups and fighting each other?

The very best immunity is natural immunity. That comes to us from Israeli data which is complete enough to draw real conclusions from.

Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche has two things; a very long career in industry vaccine development and a theory that these vaccines — as configured and rolled-out — represent a gigantic mistake. One that will cause immense harm in the future. Is he right? Is he wrong? We don’t know, but his ideas deserve to be heartily debated and discussed, not censored …
 
There's one thing that I think might cause a breakdown in the system of money and halt the economic expansion in its tracks.

Fauci has destroyed faith in science. The FDA and NIH have diminished faith in medicines and treatments, respectively. This is a terrible direction in which to head - once a society loses its ability to trust its main institutions and authorities bad things follow. We cannot consider this to be accidental any longer. So, now what?Click for Part 2 a…
 
Anthony Fauci is on record in 2012 as saying that the value of knowledge gained from creating a pandemic virus that escapes from a lab would be worth the risk.

Our national and global health authorities have been playing fast and loose with my, no...with *our*, beloved science.Science means having an open mind, operating in a collegial fashion, being curious, and daring to be wrong and then change your mind when new facts come in.Religion demands obedience to a narrative. That's why I call our current tim…
 
To combat vaccine skepticism, or hesitancy, I have a simple solution for the authorities: stop spinning the data and start being transparent and consistent. It's really not that hard to grasp. People don't like uncertainty and that is often a function of authorities being unclear or inconsistent. The bottom line is that the short-term safety data f…
 
Farmland is a “holy grail” asset class for many investors.It’s tangible, produces income, and has inherent underlying value — making it a great inflation hedge.It’s supply constrained.
