MORE "SCIENCE" ON QUARANTINE

1/3/22

So I hope everyone had a great holiday shared with family and friends but as we turn the page to a new year, the nonsense continues. Here’s the very first story that popped up in my MSN newsfeed this morning: “Fauci says testing requirement under consideration for isolation guidelines” This one happens to be from CBS News but the story is everywhere. It seems old Tony took to the Sunday “news” shows yesterday (imagine that) to say a bunch of words but not actually say anything (imagine that). We’re told: “Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden, said Sunday that the administration is weighing the addition of a negative COVID-19 testing to its guidelines for isolation...” Say, did you know Fauci was the “chief medical adviser to President Biden”? I would’ve never known. Anyway, this “weighing” comes (always my caps) “…amid a BACKLASH against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) after it halved the isolation period for those who are asymptomatic…Unions criticized the policy change, saying that the CDC designed the new rules to SUPPORT BUSINESSES  and PREVENT STAFFING SHORTAGES instead of keeping employees safe.” I already wrote about this two weeks ago when the policy changes were still being “considered” and as I reported then, these changes, which had already been instituted in the UK, were due to work staffing shortage concerns, not any actual, you know, science or anything like that.

Fauci says “That is something that is now UNDER CONSIDERATION…The CDC is very well aware that there has been some PUSHBACK about that. Looking at it again, there MAY BE an option in that, that testing COULD BE a part of that." King and still champion of equivocation – Anthony Fauci! And by the way, why does “PUSHBACK” now count for something? Lots of us have been “pushing back” for the better part of two years and we were just called names and sent to gulags. Why now is “PUSHBACK” something to be considered?

We’re then told: “The agency also eased guidance for quarantining AFTER EXPOSURE to COVID-19. Those who are fully vaccinated and have received a booster DO NOT NEED to quarantine after exposure, while unvaccinated Americans or those who are ELIGIBLE for a booster but have NOT YET RECEIVED the added shot MUST quarantine for five days, followed by mask-wearing for five more days. If a five-day quarantine is ‘NOT FEASIBLE,’ an unvaccinated or not-yet-boosted person who is exposed to COVID-19 must wear a mask around others for 10 days, the CDC said…The change in the isolation guidelines was motivated by data showing the majority of transmission occurs early in the course of illness, TYPICALLY WITHIN TWO DAYS BEFORE THE ONSET OF SYMPTOMS and up to three days after, according to the CDC.” Fauci also says “There's a big picture of trying to do it in a way that is scientifically sound, but that also gets people BACK TO WORK.” He also said it was "'REASONABLE' to test infected people who have no symptoms during the second half of their quarantine.” And that’s “…something that is now under consideration.” But good old very caring Rochelle Walensky (she’s the actual “Director” of the CDC, where they can’t even keep track of who’s been vaccinated) said the change in guidelines “…had everything to do with knowing what we would do with the information when we got it," whateverthehell that means. And that “…requiring PCR tests to end isolation ‘WOULD NOT BE VIABLE’ because they can detect remnants of COVID-19 for up to 12 weeks, even after a person is no longer contagious. So Fauci says testing is “reasonable” and is “under consideration” but Walensky says not so much. I smell a steel-cage match! And by the way, when did this "data" showing higher transmission times show up? It took two years to figure that out? It doesn't say this data is specific to Omicron, so how long has this "first five days of danger" been known? And why is it only coming out now?

Couple other things here. Those who are “fully vaccinated…” DO NOT NEED to quarantine at all, but for the evil unvaxxed or “unboosted” (you’re one of the great unwashed masses now you unboosted dregs) MUST quarantine, unless that’s “NOT FEASIBLE”, then go ahead on out, just wear a mask (that does nothing)? So for two years we were told we MUST hide away for 14 days not just from society in general, but our families as well (if you “quarantine” in your own home you’re just being silly) if you so much as heard about another person who was “infected” – it was IMPERATIVE to save the country; but now, you know, whatever works for you. SCIENCE!

And by the way, what if I’m double-vaxxed but I’m not yet “eligible” for the booster? The CDC says people “eligible” for the booster are so “AT LEAST 6 MONTHS after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series”. So what if I’m double-vaxxed but it’s only been three months? I’m not yet “eligible” for my booster but I’m also not “fully vaccinated and have received a booster” so where exactly do I fit in? Is there some special hell for people like me? It seems by these rules that I should be able to race through a field of COVID-covered poppies and then head straight to a rager with impunity. DOUBLE SCIENCE!!

But wait, the CDC itself told us just two weeks ago “CDC expects that ANYONE with Omicron infection CAN SPREAD THE VIRUS TO OTHERS, EVEN IF THEY ARE VACCINATED or DON’T HAVE SYMPTOMS…” and that “BREAKTHROUGH INFECTIONS in people who are FULLY VACCINATED are LIKELY TO OCCUR.” And remember, we’re told “The change in the isolation guidelines was motivated by data showing the MAJORITY OF TRANSMISSION occurs early in the course of illness, TYPICALLY WITHIN TWO DAYS BEFORE THE ONSET OF SYMPTOMS and up to three days after, according to the CDC.” So “fully vaxxed” people can still contract a virus which is most contagious typically before they even know they’re “infected” and they can absolutely still pass it on to the next poor slob, but they don’t need to hide if they’ve been “exposed”, because they’re “fully vaxxed” even though they can still contract the virus and spread it, but an unvaxxed person who can still contract a virus which is most contagious typically before they even know they’re “infected” and can absolutely pass it on to the next poor slob MUST still hide for five days…unless they can’t because they have to go to work or have some other obligation which makes it “NOT FEASIBLE”. TRIPLE SCIENCE!!!

And please don’t lose sight of the real take-home message here. The fact that the “experts” are just making crap up as they go along is nothing new; in fact that’s been their only play since day one. The important point here is the admission that the virus is most contagious before you even know you’re infected. And as such, the idea that we could ever “control” the virus, (let alone “end” it) has been complete folly from the very beginning. I wrote about this way back in April of 2020, saying the idea that we can control a virus, (let alone “end” it) is both arrogant and foolhardy.

I’m gonna have to find a new implorement (new made-up word alert) for 2022. Asking people to “Stop listening to the ‘experts’ and talking heads. They’re idiots and liars all. And they do not have our best interests at heart.” is so 2021. In any event, do that thing I just said. Happy New Year.
