For What It’s Worth

“We’ve been patient but our patience is wearing thin”. Thus spoke Joseph Biden on September 9, 2021 in declaring his war on Covid. Or was it on the American People?


Never could it be thought to hear those words uttered by a sitting President of the United States toward his fellow countrymen and citizens – especially a president that claims to honor the sanctity and privacy of a person’s body.

The Corona virus is real and in many cases serious and deadly. That has been established as has been the fact that certain segments of the population are more susceptible than others. So, please, do not suppose that I am denying or minimizing the Corona virus disease. But, there are differences with this disease that separate it from most others.

First, it has, from the start, been politicized. Rather than attempt to isolate the epicenter of the outbreak, Some politicians chose instead to “virtue signal”, encouraging people to attend large gatherings within certain ethnic groups to show solidarity and non-prejudice. Other attempts by the then sitting President to limit influxes of illegal and unscreened immigrants were also met with resistance. So much for even trying to stem the flow of disease into our country. Today, it is much the same. Our Southern border check points are only a band-aid on a hemorrhaging limb. Yet, we have a tight-as -a drum control on our Canadian border.

Secondly, there is great mistrust of the “vaccines” and the people behind them. There is also mistrust and suspicion of the folks put in charge of our “pandemic” response. After all, it was Dr. Anthony Fauci that secured funding with American tax dollars of the research conducted in the Chinese labs that created and enhanced the corona virus to make it more deadly. Yep, research banned in the USA was, thanks to Dr. Fauci, paid for by American tax dollars. What would be the motive for doing such a thing is a question legitimately asked by informed and caring citizens of not only the USA, but the world. Very informed and knowledgeable medical people have grave concerns about the efficacy and safety of the “vaccines”. Despite recent press releases and government statements, what is being administered is not, by and large FDA approved and is still be administered with full immunity to the drug companies and providers. Many people ask, again legitimately, why?

Third, there is the response by the government to this disease vastly different from that to just about any other that comes to mind.

During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s the world, it seemed, was being overcome by HIV and AIDS. Panic was rampant. So was fear, suspicion and unkindness. Initially, medical and governmental agencies sometimes gave erroneous or contradictory information. Being a “First Responder” (how I dislike that term) was no fun in those days, I can assure you. But, science marched on until finally the causes and cures were found for this very deadly disease.

There were only limited and relatively short-lived acts of aggression or discrimination against that segment of the population largely responsible for the disease. Laws were enacted, as should be, for that population’s safety and privacy. Perhaps the seminal turning point in efforts to find a cure and in showing compassion for the afflicted was with the release of the film, Philadelphia, starring Tom Hanks and the movie’s very moving Bruce Springsteen title song turned anthem, Philadelphia (click link to play). Today, despite WHO AIDS /HIV statistics (click link to view) showing the disease to still be a world-wide health concern and one fairly limited to life-style choices – yes, there are exceptions, including transmissions to embryos, there is no ostracizing of those carrying the disease. Indeed, the very opposite may be true, especially within certain political circles.

There are no mandates or medical passports required, apparently, for those afflicted with particular diseases, even for those that contract a disease because of, in many cases, the exercise of their free will.

So, why has Mr. Biden, his Administration and Party turned their wrath on their fellow countrymen who may have grave and legitimate concerns about injecting foreign, unproven substances into their bodies? Shouldn’t his and their wrath instead be directed toward those that concocted this disease and spread it throughout the world? Despite his many years feeding at the Public Trough, Mr. Biden just doesn’t understand America. Seriously. He doesn’t understand that we, Americans – both those born here and those recently arrived – hate tyrants.

He, too, promised to build back better
Promised great Socialism for all
Promised prosperity and transparency

And finally, as a late update to this blog, please see the following link of the farewell lecture of a Canadian college professor of Ethics. She makes much more sense than I:

What then will be the anthem for these times? What song could possibly express our need for deliverance from this stalking Evil?

Perhaps, only this. Song for our Time (click)

Do not be afraid. Pray.

    Even Hitler didn’t try to destroy his own country. I bought into the hype at the beginning. We didn’t gather with family or friends for over a year and I stayed at home and masked up and wiped everything we touched down and somehow still caught the virus. The kind of masks we are all wearing do nothing to help. And the fact that the government has no regard for the 100 million Corona survivors who have natural immunity and they still want to force this job into them to make big Pharma billions more, is reprehensible. I am stunned by the compliance of the American people. When I see people on their bikes with masks or in their cars alone with masks, I cannot believe how easily they allow themselves to be a pawn in this game. Biden will continue the fear tactics and destroy this great nation.

      Biden and others may continue to use fear tactics to further their own agendas. But, I sincerely doubt that they will be able to destroy America. Perhaps this may sound naive, but we are here for a purpose. As our National motto states, “In God we trust”.

        I hope you’re right. So many Americans have lost sight of God.

    Biden has been a failure from day one, campaigned on his brilliant COVID plan, (although he hid in the basement through the worst of it), and is losing support. He implied in his recent speech that it was Trump supporters who were resisting the vaccine, when in reality, it is largely minorities. Biden supporters continue to apologize for him. They cannot admit to themselves that this guy has dementia and has already failed as president. Great post!

      Thanks for reading and following future posts, Dawn. It will to interesting to see who steps forward to fill the vacuum of Biden when he is dismissed,

    Why is there no outrage against those who created this pandemic? The victims are being blamed while the perpetrators go freely about their lives!
    Thank you Bill.

      As the song at the top of the page says, “Battle lines are being drawn”. Just added the Canadian video to this blog. Thank you.

    I am not thrilled with our current Pres., but when it comes to masks – I really don’t think that doctors and nurses have been wearing masks all these years simply as a fashion statement.


    • BGCT2VA September 10, 2021 / 8:36 am

      No, I’m sure they don’t. There is, however, some divergence of medical thought as to how effective they are in stopping viruses as opposed to much larger sized bacteria. The issue I’m trying to make is governmental overreach and mucking up a medical scientific issue with politics and covering their own complicity in the virus creation.

        There’s also this…before covid, virtually no one wore masks outside of hospital settings. When visiting the doc’s no one wore masks. You walked in, sat down, and waited. There was virtually no concern for spread before. Parents sent their kids to school sick, people went to church, shopping and yes, work. Where was the concern for the vulnerable then?

        This virus has been extremely politicized! If they’re able to “mandate” this so-called vaccine on us, what will be next? They’ll keep pushing and pushing until we have no freedoms left.

      My wife has been a registered nurse over 40 years so we have scores of nurse friends. I personally have 4 physician friends including a surgeon that we consider to be very close. Masks have primarily been used in surgery or contaminated areas. There was an initial uptick when AIDS & HIV first appeared but it was temporary.
      Recent releases of Dr. Fauci’s emails prove the masks were not that necessary. There are videos of him contradicting himself too may times about the masks in his own public statements.
      My doctor friends say wearing the masks are OK in their offices, hospitals and perhaps in large crowds but not in every day living.
      When I asked what about when shopping, none of them currently wear them unless required by the retailer.
      Fortunately, we live in Texas and most places don’t require it.
      In the small town we live in, if we see someone wearing a masking walking on the sidewalk, strolling in the park, riding on a motorcycle or driving by themselves in a car, someone will inevitably say he or she “must be from Austin.”
      Since the outbreak, we’ve been in two road trips: to DC and Colorado/Arizona. Total traveling time was 49 days. Very public places. No masks unless we were in a liberal location (restaurant or theater) where it was required. Virtually no masks.

        I agree, Jack. And, of course if someone chooses to wear one even while alone at home – go for it. Sooner or later medical professionals will get a handle on this virus, as they do most others, and come up with a solution that actually works to protect people from getting it. Yet, even then it should / will be up to people to choose.

        Thanks, too, for that recipe of tonic and zinc. With the right music playing it seems like I’m back sippin’ one at the bar! LOL


      • Texans Jack & Dodie September 10, 2021 / 12:15 pm

        Ha! Many of our nurse friends as well as two doctors we know use it. I understand the bar scene. 😊
