    Do we know the recovery rate for the 65 to 85 and +85 brackets in the US? Just those brackets?

    What an odd guy. Hard to figure him out. Sometimes he makes perfect sense, and here he's lost his mind. By this construction, the government could make being fat illegal.

I'm basing this assumption on the fact that while I love Arizona, and parts of the natural landscape are very beautiful, the Phoenix metro area is ugly af and also so incredibly boooooooring. Only someone that moved to California from a place as boring as Arizona (presumably because they were looking for better weather than they had in the midwest or New England) would move from California to Arizona.
    I was born in Los Angeles, lived there for 29 years, lived in California for 46 years, and have no desire to go back. I have only been in California once since 2005 and that was for a seminar at Paul Horn's gym. When I crossed the Colorado River on the way back, I was home.

    I meant to address this in a previous post but I got sidetracked. Years ago undocumented immigrants were eligible for Emergency Medi-Cal for emergency health insurance because they were ineligible for full Medi-Cal (Medicaide in California for those who are not familiar). Since dialysis is a life sustaining treatment, it was covered under Emergency Medi-Cal. According to the California Department of Healthcare Services, undocumented immigrants now qualify for full Medi-Cal. So I would not be able to identify them based on this today.

    I watched it twice. Then I found the whole interview because I was fairly certain that snippet was taken out of context.

    I was astoundingly wrong. He said the government should provide an alternative for those who donít want to be forcibly taken to a doctorís office and assaulted: simply never have contact with humans ever again.

    Perfectly rational.

    This discussion around a vaccine is just one more thing that keeps me up at night. Once there's a "vaccine", there's going to be another media storm when some of us (me) refuse to let a nurse inject us with a mystery liquid of dubious efficacy that was rushed through production for political purposes.

    What really boils my blood is the sophistry of those who say they have a "right" not to get sick because of my "irresponsible" actions. I'm not a lawyer, but even I can see the linguistic hoops the panickers jump through to justify this kind of talk. There's no precident for this kind of garbage. I might as well say that obesity should be a crime because gives me mental anguish to look at fat slobs walking around in public.

    My prediction is that the "next time" that Rip, Stef, and Andrew talked about in today's podcast will be the inevitable showdown over mandatory vaccines. The tinfoil hat part of me wonders if all the antivaxxer talk of the past few years wasn't just a primer to make people willingly comply with injecting anything with the name vaccine into their body. The government of Oregon sicced Child Protectice Services on some woman the other day for opening her salon. Don't think they won't pin you down Cops-style while they forcibly shove a needle into you and your family's arms.

    I finally realized today that there's no point trying to convince anyone of any of this. I've overheard plenty of conversations outside my office between clients and employees and it's pretty obvious that everyone is entrenched in their position. It's reached the stage where everyone is just talking past one another. The people advocating lockdowns and mandatory vaccines are modern-day zealots. Mocking or ignoring them seems to be the only route to stay sane.
