A Rant and Then Some Reassurance
Let’s start with the reassurance part first: Riley’s Farm will not cancel or change any event for any reason related to Covid. Your tickets will be good here, no matter what sort of hysteria prevails down in the flat lands. As always, dinner and admission events here are non-refundable. We would never require proof of vaccination. You can wear a mask, or not, at your own discretion. No, you will not be seated six feet from the next guest. Yes, if you do a little square dancing, you might be asked to hold the girl’s hand. Our events are for normal, patriotic Americans who make their own health decisions.
Now the Rant: fear and overreaction to this pandemic run the danger of destroying America, and maybe even the world. Sooner or later, we have to learn what our grandparents learned: “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
Has this disease killed millions of people? Yes. Is it real? Yes. Have we grossly overreacted to it? Yes. A thousand times: Yes.
I find myself continually surprised, particularly after 18 months of this nonsense, that Americans seem to have trouble absorbing a basic truth: you don’t seek a cure from the doctor who tried to kill you. We now know, with near absolute certainty, that gain of function research in a Communist laboratory, funded by US taxpayers, created the virus itself. That last link is not from a conspiracy theory site. It’s the work of a former New York Times science editor, Nicholas Wade. (Normally, when a pandemic hits, some animal species is responsible for it. With Covid-19, they can’t find one. Apparently, they can’t even poison a bat with this stuff, since it was designed to infect humans.) The rationale for doing this goes as follows: “let’s make a super-virus so that we can learn how to fight it.” Should we really trust an academic discipline — virology — to find us a cure when they propose dangerous experiments they can’t seem to contain? “Oops, the super-killer virus got out before we learned how to control it. Sorry. Please stop going to church. Please close down your businesses. Please take experimental vaccines during the interim.”
As I told a school board meeting the other night: there are good and bad experts. The UCLA surgeons who gave my friend a new lung, and saved her from near certain death, are good experts. Trust that science by all means. It works.
But Dr. Fauci is a liar and the Keystone Cop equivalent of a “scientist.” Stop going to church because that liar and fraud tells you to? Stop conducting business? Let your loved one die alone without visitors? Allow that quack, and his colleagues, to shut down the American supply chain — creating shortages of everything from food to car parts to fuel? All of that for a condition, if you even believe the CDC, that has taken 0.18% of our population? (Funny how the distinction between “dying WITH Covid and dying OF Covid” was only taken seriously when the vaccine didn’t work as well as they thought.)
Dr. Pierre Kory, a doctor who treats the “sickest of the sick” personally takes Ivermectin (for prevention) and uses it successfully with his Covid patients (for cure), and that practice is based on dozens of studies from around the globe. We know that Vitamin D is useful. We also know that losing weight is helpful. Do we hear about any of that? No, it’s “take the jab” and “get ready for more lock-downs.”
So, if you’re worried about Covid, lose some weight and take some vitamin D. Don’t expect us to stop feeding our children because the Keystone Cop scientists have scared your neighbors to death.
