conservative black podcaster learns FOX behaves like liberal news services he doesn't like

Sancho Panza copied me with this yesterday:

You all remember how I have been harping about Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc and Z-pak as effective early treatments for Covid-19. Well, I had also said that Trump had placed a massive order of HCQ from India and that it was probably a strategic move to make sure military personal had it available if needed. Watch the video and see how this whole thing was probably happening behind the scene but the media suppressed it, including Fox News!


I replied to Sancho, and it went from there:

Please tell me you always knew FOX was just as spun as all the rest of the TV channels? This black guy was an idiot if he did not know until this fake blond girl woke him up.Emoji

I was hoping this video was about hydroxychloroquine being ordered for the US Military, whom Trump was far more important to protect from Red China's bioweapon than American civilians.

Does she still work for FOX? If so and that's in the video, apologies for not hearing that in all the other.

Sancho

The reporter said the Army commander would not comment on the use of HCQ, but the army doctor did admit to her that they were using it to treat Covid and that was back in August 2020, so after the FDA had banned it, which would have been a big scoop but, Fox Corporate wanted no part of it! 

I know that all of the MSM companies, including Fox, have specific "audiences" that they set up their programing to attract, this is specially true of their Cable Business, but this reporter was from a local news Fox station in Texas, you would think being in TX that they would cover anything with a Right leaning twist, but the scoop is that at the Corporate Level, they are pretty much locked in step with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, etc..... my point was not the political perspective, but the fact that THEY ALL knew that HCQ was not harmful and exactly the opposite was true, yet they all covered it up and are now the same ones pushing for vaccines for everyone, including babies and those who already are immune(from having had the disease)... that sounds to me like a conspiracy!  

Obviously you didn't see the entire video, she actually was doing a live report and used the moment to tell the audience that Fox was censoring her from reporting certain things that she had found out and apparently she got fired after that and went about making public some recordings she had from her boss, etc.! I don't know much about her, this is the first time I hear about this and what interested me was the fact that HCQ and the Army Hospital was part of the reason she either left or got fired from Fox! 

Sloan

I saw and heard all of that, and I wondered if she had quit working at FOX, and, if not, why not? The black podcaster revealed his utter ignorance of reality, and he had no clue he had revealed it, and was proud he had revealed it.

Again, because of your lead into the podcast, I was hoping the video would focus on Trump giving hcq and zinc to his troops, but not to American civilians. 

I wonder if Trump did that, given a very large US aircraft carrier became infected with Covid-19, and there was no mention of hcq and zinc being given them.

Sometimes FOX reports facts, sometimes the other news outlet report facts. FOX didn't do such a great job reporting January 6. 

All mainstream American news media, including FOX, report some facts, and all mainstream American news media leave out some facts, and all American news media promote their narrative. 


Sancho

I copied you because of the link to HCQ, but to be honest I don't know why I bother... you seem to transform everything I send to you into an opportunity to score some political point to create contention; I don't care about Fox News per se, just like I don't care about your obsession with Donald Trump, my point was/is that we are all "being had" by the MSM and that behind all the apparent contentions between these competing 'News" Media Outlets, they are all part of the same BS establishment cabal... but you seem to be stuck on an imaginary litigation loop where you attack and I am suppose to defend Right Wing positions or past events, you keep hoping that I would litigate on their behalf... you don't see me at all, so what's the point, Sloan? 

Me

So, you want me to respond like your internet correspondents Waldo and Mouse, who seem somewhat short on functional grey matter?

I truly had hoped the black podcaster and the lady from FOX would give Dr. Zelenko some attaboys, or at least his cure, and start a movement that actually would trump the vaccine parades and allow America to move ahead safely - but that is not what the podcaster and the lady from FOX did. They splayed FOX for having its own agendas. The black podcaster said he was a mainstream media basher, he voted for Trump and was proud  of it, and he now was having to bash FOX, as if he had suddenly reached puberty? Where had he been? 

I responded to all of that. I'd love to sit down with the podcaster and the FOX lady in a 3 person video and fill them in on what you provided to me about Dr. Zelenko and HCQ and zinc curing Covid-19 pronto, if administered pronto after symptoms appear, and how Trump had the cure and he weenied under the pressure and sold out to the big pharma cabal, and fucked every American, including them and you, and good fucking luck that podcaster airing that interview.

Donald Trump has morals? Seriously?

Do you wonder who creates memes people post on Facebook? Do you wonder if the author of this meme below knows the difference between it's and its? Do you wonder other things about the author, like does he mean old fashioned white values and morals?

$48,000 arteriogram hospital bill: want to know how I feel about people who want to do away with Obamacare and Medicare?

The other day brought a text from an out of state medical billing service about an unpaid bill I had never received. I called and finally got a human, who told me the bill was for a St. Vincent's Hospital procedure, the unpaid amount was $775. 

I said, yes, I was in that hospital for a procedure, but I had never received a bill. It was mailed to me, the human said. I never received it, I said. The human asked if I will I pay with a credit card? Not a chance I give someone I don't know my credit card on the phone, I said. 

The human said they have payment plans if I can't pay the full amount. If I don't pay something now, it goes against my credit. I said I can pay the full amount, but I'm not giving  my credit card to someone I don't know for a bill I never received. I'll go by the hospital and see what I can learn there. 

I drove to St. Vincent's later in the day. It was founded by nuns many years ago. It expanded in stages. My mother and and her mother and my father's parents died there. I had several surgeries and other hospitalizations there. My daughters were born there. It's about 20 times bigger than when my daughters were born there.

I found my way to the business office and there was no waiting line. I told a pleasant woman behind the glass that I was being dunned and threatened by texts from an out of state medical collection agency for not paying a bill I never received. 

She got my name and date of birth and looked up my account. She said it was for the arteriogram last January, $48,000 and some change.

What?! 

She confirmed the amount, said Medicare had paid $1,800 and had allowed the hospital to bill me $775.

I said that sounds about right, but $48,000?

I had gotted there at 7 a.m. with my older daughter, as they required I be accompanied and driven home after the procedure, which occurred about 10 a.m., under what is called "twilight sleep". After I woke up, the cardiologist came by and said my arteries were fine, the EKG and stress tests showing abnormalities in the left side of my heart were false positives. They let me leave about 2 p.m. 

That's the bill, the pleasant woman said. 

Do the nuns know about this?, I asked 

The nuns aren't here any more, the pleasant woman said. 

I gave her my credit card and she ran it and gave it back to me.

A few hours after leaving St. Vincent's I had dinner with an attorney friend who represents some physicians in a huge class action lawsuit against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and its national parent company. He was astounded over the $48,000 bill for the arteriogram.

He said the gist of the lawsuit is Blue Cross Blue Shield had made great gob$$$$ of billion$$$$ by reducing patients' benefits and raising their premium$$$$, and by paying doctor providers less and not letting them treat patients covered by other medical insurance providers if they wanted to keep doing business with BlueCross BlueShield, which controlled about 95 percent of the medical insurance market in Alabama, and it was similar outside Alabama. 

The lawyer said the lawsuit was filed in 2012 and Blue Cross Blue Shield fought the lawsuit all those years before finally settling the patient side for $2.5 billion. A Blue Cross Blue Shield insider had told him that was peanuts compared to what Blue Cross Blue Shield had made and had in cash reserves. The lawyer said the doctor provider side of the lawsuit is still before the court. 

The day before, by chance, if you believe in such, I was hailed by someone I once knew pretty well, who had worked for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama. He was in their computer department. We got caught up, agreed to get together later for a meal. I called him yesterday and reported what the lawyer had told me. He said he had heard similar about the class action. He, too, was astounded over the $48,000 bill for the arteriogram.

This morning, I saw online that the Trump-packed U.S. Supreme Court had just ruled against the 3rd Trump/Republican lawsuit to end the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), which is not available to Medicare patients. 

Without Medicare, I would not have been able to afford the arteriogram and a lot more medical treatment I received this year. I wondered how 30-something million Americans covered by Obama Care would get by if Trump and Republicans were allowed to have their way? I wondered how they sleep nights?

This morning, I looked at my bill for radiation treatment for prostate cancer this past February and March, 28 treatments in all. 

I went in, laid down on a table under the Cat scan-like device. Two medical techs lined up my body just right left the room. The device came on and moved over my pelvis and sent a tight proton beam at my pelvis for maybe3 minutes, and then the device shifted a little to the right and repeated that. The techs came in and helped me sit up and I got up and left. 

For that I was charged each visit, $500 for "Guidance of Localization of Target" and $2000 for "intensity modulated radiation deliver treatment", for which Medicare paid and I was billed less than $100.

Wonder what that medical clinic bill would have been paid if Blue Cross Blue Shield was my medical provider? 

Want to know how I feel about people who want to do away with Obamacare and Medicare?

Want to know how I feel about health care costing far more in America than in any other country?

two Republicans engage Sloan the Mad re "What actually is a progressive?"

Two Republicans responded to the leader I put on Facebook for yesterday's What exactly is a progressive? post at this blog.

The first Republican, Walt, once lived on Big Pine Key and wrote a daily anonymous column, From the Right (FTR), on bigpinekey.com's popular Coconut Telegraph public forum. When FTR stopped publishing there, he identified himself. Walt then started posting his from the right views on Facebook. In 2016, he posted that he could not vote for Donald Trump, but he changed his mind by election day. 

The second Republican, Michael, lives in Alabama. He sent me a friend request a while back, and I accepted it. He has commented a good bit under Facebook leaders to my blog posts.

Yesterday's Facebook leader:

Sloan Bashinsky
A friend alerted me yesterday to this comment about the Bashinsky family on someone else's blog, "Only Sloan Jr. the Mad is a progressive, some of his side are. The rest are Alabama blue blood washed dark red."
Although I belong to no political party, many times on Facebook and elsewhere have I been called a leftist marxist, commie, etc.
I think the core definition of progressive, or liberal, is someone who tries to bring forward beneficial change. In that sense, I suppose the most progressive people in world history were Buddha and Jesus.
Two things happened online yesterday, which gave me opportunity to show what kind of "progressive" I am. 
What exactly is a progressive?
AFOOLSWORKNEVERENDS.BLOGSPOT.COM
What exactly is a progressive?
anomalous (unusual, quirky, strange, weird, etc.) musing and reporting on diverse human and non-human affairs
Walt 
Your angels are going to be pissed at your crass display of vanity, self aggrandizement and false virtue signaling. Today's reality is that the core of political progressivism is a deepseated belief that the USofA is a deeply flawed, and fundamentally evil nation and society. The "Progress" that they yearn for is a destruction of our nation and society and the replacement thereof with a Socialist/Marxist government and a deeply racist society.

Sloan Bashinsky
Gosh, Walt, 2 people, one from the BLM side, the other from the Republican side, tossed stuff at me about some things I had published at my blog, I gave them my dead honest reply, which didn't promote anything personal to me, other than I am white and remain ashamed of my bigoted youth. I took the red and the blue sides of the spectrum to task, and you went off on me about your right side view of the left, to which I don't belong any more than I belong to your red side of the spectrum. I belong to the angels you predict will be pissed at my me for what I published today. Did you read the blog post, or just the part of it I put onto Facebook with a link to it?

Walt Lagraves
Miriam Webster's sez: Definition of "mad"...2 (a) : completely unrestrained by reason and judgment : unable to think in a clear or sensible way. Well I guess that kinda does say it all.

Sloan Bashinsky
Did you open the link and read the rest of the story?
Looks to me that Miriam Webster described Donald Trump, his MAGAs, most Republicans in Congress and elsewhere, lots of Democrats in Congress and elsewhere, I might even say she described Joe Biden, except I watched his and Trump's first debate, and the only sane person I saw on the stage was Joe Biden, and I do not exclude the moderator Mike Wallace, who did not have the sense, nor grit, to turn off totally out of control Trump's mic.

Michael
I believe that the terms liberal and conservative have been overused and weaponized. Many of my friends label themselves as liberal or progressive and yet we agree on almost everything. You can be fiscally conservative and socially liberal. We should look past labels and get back to normal conversations without trying to “win.”

Michael
Let’s Exterminate Covid 19!
No photo description available.
Sloan Bashinsky
Michael, your let's exterminate covid remark was off topic, but since you posted it, why not exterminate Donald Trump who had a cheap fast cure in hand in late March 23, 2020, which would have allowed America and the world to defeat Red China's gift and safely reopen, and Trump abandoned the cure and went for vaccines instead.
As for your first comment, I am not a liberal nor a conservative, and you and I seldom agree. If you truly believe the other things you wrote, why don't you stop talking about the left side of the spectrum and start doing what you can to try to get the right side of the spectrum to unweaponize itself.

Michael
There is enough fault on both sides to go around. DT was the natural response to the 8 years of BHO and his apology tour. I called him (DT) an idiot before his election, but many of his policies worked and he actually tried to keep his campaign promises. Would I vote for him again No, but I will support a Republican who calls out extremists on both sides and promotes energy independence, border security, and equality for all American citizens, regardless of race, color, or gender.
DT did advocate for alternative treatments to Covid, and was roasted by the media for doing so. His mishandling of Covid (and his personality) cost him a 2nd term.

Sloan Bashinsky
Yes, Trump's mishandling of Covid (and his personality) cost him a second term, but he would have been reelected if he had made the cheap fast cure freely available in America; that was his God assignment, all the rest was politics and ego.

Michael
Not sure about the God assignment part, but he did try (and failed) to manage an unmanageable crisis when there were no good options. The after action report on Covid 19 should be a best seller.

Sloan Bashinsky
In fact, Trump routinely fired and replaced his department heads, who didn't please him, and he darn sure should have fired his FDA director after the FDA took the cheap fast cure off the approved list for Covid-19 treatment. But Trump didn't do that; he instead went down the medical-indu$trial complex vaccine road with its enormous profit$. The irony is, the Democrats and their media joined the medical-indu$strial complex in burning the cheap fast cure at the stake and promoting the far more expensive and far more profitable vaccine approach.

Michael
I agree

a Republican wealth management specialist friend said "Sloan the Mad" is a proper name for a Knight

After reading this morning's "Is Sloan Jr the Mad a progressive?" post at this blog, a Key West amigo, who manages rich people's money and is very familiar with my 10 fool's errand runs for local public office in Key West and the Florida Keys, texted me:

T
Sloan the Mad
Be careful, that might stick

Me
I suppose, so I changed the title to, "What actually is progressive?" Thanks

T
You're not Jr to me

Me
No, I'm a dinosaur 
 
T
Sloan the Mad
It's a proper name for a Knight

Me
Well, maybe I shudda left the title alone then

Sancho Panza, who nick-named me Don Quixote, also responded to this morning's "Is Sloan Jr. the Mad a progressive?" post:

You're an old foggy, try as you may, everything you call out(Jesus, MLK, Gandhi)  is already rancid with the passage of time which is something the current woke crowd detest... not knowing that one day, they too will be canceled by a newer generation that would see them as not progressive enough... it is said that JFK would be despised by the current Left and I believe that would probably be true!  But you and I know that this is all entertainment sport, right? Emoji

I replied:

I'm definitely an old foggy, and it definitely is entertainment and sporting, although I ever fret of being clobbered by angels mentioned in the Bible for my writings drifting outside their guidelines and training of me, which is not something that causes you to fret, is it? Can imagine humanity would be very different if what those angels do with me was done to everyone. 

I think a whole lot of people today, who claim Jesus saved them 2000 years ago, might find him rancid if he were here talking to them today. Ditto, MLK (Gandhi), JFK. So, sometimes I remind such people of those they put onto pedestals, but just might shoot, stab, poison or burn at the stake if they come down off their pedestals and walk this earth today.

Perhaps this text back and forth with a Key West friend, who manages wealthy people's money, might amuse you - or might not ...

Sancho then sent:

I DON'T THINK PISSED REALLY COVERS IT ! ! !
Alan Simpson, the Senator from Wyoming calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security " to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats. Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ... I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!
"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight!!!
1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole (tit) for FIFTY YEARS.
2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).
3. My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would make Bernie Madoff proud.
4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and "your ilk" pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age, 67. NOW, you and your "shill commission" are proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.
5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now "you morons" propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because "you idiots" mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal our money from Medicare to pay the bills.
6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you "incompetent bxxxxds" spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt.
To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bxxxxxxt" to your incompetence.
Well, Captain Bxxxxxxit, I have a few questions for YOU:
1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?
2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?
3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?
4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and healthcare benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?
It is you, Captain Bxxxxxxt, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcase thieves who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers.
And for what? Votes and your job and retirement security at our expense, you lunk-headed, leech.
That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic, political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.
And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bxxxxx.
P.S. And stop calling Social Security benefits "entitlements". WHAT AN INSULT!!!!
I have been paying in to the SS system for 45 years “It's my money”-give it back to me the way the system was designed and stop patting yourself on the back like you are being generous by doling out these monthly checks .
EVERYONE!! If you agree with what a Montana citizen, Patty Myers, says, please PASS IT ON!!!!

Sloan the Mad replied to Sancho Panza:

When I turned 62 in 2004, I became eligible to take reduced monthly Social Security benefits, or I could wait until I was 65 and take full monthly benefits. I was broke, homeless, had nothing coming in other than an annual Christmas gift of tradable securities from my father, which he gave to all his children, which I sold and netted close to $8000. Not knowing how much longer I might live, and being under financial strain (understatement), I applied to receive the reduced monthly benefits. Later, I applied for Medicare. If I had not had Medicare this year, I would not have been able to pay for a slew of medical treatments, including prostate cancer treatment, surgery to remove a benign grown from my larynx, extensive G.I. tract and heart examinations, and that's just the top end of it. So, what I wonder is, aren't Montana and Wyoming open carry states? Or darn near? Don't just about everyone in those states old enough to drive a pickup have guns? That's what would worry me if it was so stupid, retarded and plain totally fucked up as Republican Senator Alan Simpson is made out to be in what you sent me.

Two things happened online yesterday, which gave me opportunity to show what kind of progressive I am.

The first thing was this email:

Subject: afoolsworkneverends.blogspot.com's impact on supporting Black Lives Matter

Hello there ,

 

My name is Natalie and I am a BLM activist, I believe in freedom, liberation, and justice.

Thank you for coverage of the Black community in your  article afoolsworkneverends.blogspot.com/2021/04/facebook-proved-yesterday-that-it-is.html.  

 

Supporting BLM is crucial to help people in our society and I found an extremely detailed article on why we need to support the Black Lives Matter movement and how to get involved.

 

 

Would you like to add it as an additional resource to your page? The more people learn about BLM the more they should understand why BLM is important for a free society and equality.

 

Thank you in advance for your support,

Natalie

I replied:

Thanks, Natalie -

While I agree with the America right, which mostly is white, that all lives matter, I wonder if they mean it when I see them respond to yet another mass shooting by saying bad people, not guns, kill people. I wonder when I see right whites rail against abortion, if they even once tried to adopt a white pregnant woman's unwanted child or offered to support that child financially if she went to term and had the baby. 
 
I'm white, and I have plenty of trouble with the white right in America. And, to be honest, I have plenty of trouble with the American left. Good luck them wanting to adopt an unwanted black baby. 

I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, and was a white bigot growing up, even though our black maid loved and raised me like her own, and I remain ashamed of how I was then. So, yes, I do say black lives matter, and when I see conservative whites react against that, I think they need to have a prayer meeting with Jesus, whose skin was not their color. 

And, when I see blacks react with violence to, say, the George Floyd murder, I say those blacks did not know Dr. King, nor Jesus, and need a prayer meeting with them both. 

I applauded black pro football and basketball players for taking a knee. What a powerful non-violent statement. Well, the white right reacted violently (emotionally).  

Something that puzzles me is why blacks join the U.S. Military and fight its rich white men's wars? I could not fathom Barack Obama accepting the Nobel Peace Prize while he continued to wage the two Bush-Cheney wars. Was that a modern version of picking cotton? 

What if black service men and women refuse to fight wars spun up by rich white American men? I bet Dr. King and Jesus might give that an attaboy. 

Dr. King came out against the Vietnam war being a rich white man's war and he was killed. 

Before that, President Kennedy came out against that war and he was killed. 

Look what they did to Muhammed Ali for not fighting in that war. 

Look at what Trump, MAGAs and most Republicans today are doing: claiming the 2020 presidential election was stolen - by blacks - but they don't say, by blacks. Not in public, anyway.

I hope America is not headed into another Civil War.

Sloan

The second thing was old Republican friend Mark replied on Facebook to one sentence in yesterday's the covid story: defeat snatched from jaws of victory by confederacy of human blunders and worse post at this blog:

Sloan
I find it deeply distressing that President Trump and Americans did not see God's attempt to save America and humanity from Covid-19.

Mark
To your last sentence above, a pragmatic President Trump saw it, but was swimming upstream against a current stronger than the Ocoee with its gates wide open. In this case, he got played BIG TIME by Fauci, Big Pharma, WHO, CDC, and a load of other corrupt organizations and politicians hell bent on selling unproven, injectable potions.  
 
What I find deeply disturbing and on my plate today is the fact that we were able to serve our customers from Italy with engineers coming here in 2020 while Covid RAGED under NIE (National Interest Exemption) granted in 7-10 days by the US Consulate in Milan. This year, due to staff cutbacks, consulate closures, and not giving a damn about business (build back better my arse!) this administration has put roadblocks up for ESSENTIAL (fully vaccinated) professional business people to enter while leaving the southern border open to 200,000 human trafficked illegals each and every month! War on drugs my arse! American workers be damned! American taxpayers, screw you! Pathetic but predictable:-(

Sloan Bashinsky
Have you been vaccinated, Mark? Last I recall, it would be a while, if ever, before that happens. But, I agree, vaccinated people should be allowed to come into America, but isn't it easy to forge a vaccination card? 
 
If I had been Trump, then Biden, I would have sealed off America's southern border with the troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, instead of spending all that money on a wall. If more troops were needed to seal the southern border, I would have pulled them there from elsewhere.

Trump stood before the Capitol holding up a Bible, he told his worshippers God sent him to them, yet he didn't see the covid-19 cure God served up to him on a silver platter? Or, he saw it and he caved to the pressure? Or, he caved because he was worried about losing votes, being made fun of by the Democrats, the mainstream media, etc. Or, he was afraid of being bumped off by the medical-indu$trial complex? Or, he was bought by them?

Trump will be put through the wringer when he stands before St. Peter, for not seeing to it that every American got the cure God sent directly to Trump via the doctor who was inspired by an angel to invent and battlefield prove it.

Mark
I'm not an anti-vaxer, but I'm not ready to become a test subject for the mrna "vaccines" currently being mass marketed. I have no conditions which make me highly vulnerable and am using your Zelenko strategy of Vitamins B, C, D, Zinc, & Quercetin as well as keeping a strong fitness regimen. Considering putting Ivermectin in the mix for prophylactic use also. Wonder why the media refuses to cover VAERS data?

Sloan Bashinsky
I would not take Ivermectin (nor any drug) as prophylactic, other than for brief time, say, if you were around someone who tested Covid-19 positive. Trump took hcq and zinc for a while after some of his staff tested positive, but when he actually caught Covid-19, he took an expensive treatment that had been learned worked. That was the first clue he had gone down the Big Pharm rabbit hole. Big Pharm controls most media, so don't expect most media to report what Big Pharm doesn't want reported. Ironic, Big Pharm is about as capitalistic as it gets. Money is its God.
