I take major issue with Joe Biden's work visa plan

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually agreed with something Trump did which was to severely restrict H1B visas and to change the lottery system with a wage based system. Joe Biden states he will overturn all of that.

I'm in IT and I can't tell you the number of times that I or someone I know (including my husband) has been laid off and replaced with a cheaper H1B worker. To add insult to injury, in order to get severance we've had to train our replacements. The whole idea behind H1B visas was to allow companies to hire foreign workers WHEN THEY COULDN'T FIND THE EXPERTISE IN THE U.S. So why is the person being replaced by the H1B worker training them?

Well, it just happened again. The company I work for, a major hospital chain, just laid off 75% of IT and outsourced them to foreign workers. We are all training these new workers, many of which lack the experience to do the job. We're talking a hospital and patient safety, not just lost revenue if a system goes down.

Corporations blatantly abuse the H1B visas and it hurts US workers as well as the H1B workers replacing them. The idea behind a wage based system was that an H1B worker had to be paid the same, or more, than his US counterpart. This makes sense to me because if the purpose of the H1B visa is to fill a need that can't be filled by a US worker, then why not pay them a fair wage? Using a wage based system prevents corporations from replacing US workers to please their shareholders, and it prevents the Corporations from grossly underpaying their H1B workers.

Sorry, just so tired of this.

Interesting podcast from lawyer who sued hospital on behalf of 80-yr old COVID patient - Ivermectin

I just stumbled across this podcast with the lawyer who sued on behalf of the family whose 80-year old mother was in the ICU with COVID, given a 20% chance of living. Family wanted doctors to administer Ivermectin but the hospital refused after initial dosage (after which she improved enough to be taken off ventilator but started going downhill when her second dose was refused).

Very interesting insider details on the timeline of events. The lawyer also mentions another patient who family had to sue to get Ivermectin prescribed. In this case the hospital called the husband in as the patient was dying and wasn't expected to live. Finally got the Ivermectin administered and the patient stabilized within a few hours.


Here's what I don't understand. Ivermectin isn't something new. It's been used in humans for over 30 years. It's routinely used "off label" for scabies treatment. Why not allow "off label" use for COVID?

"MAGAt" not happy about mask mandate

I have to admit, I didn’t realize this was satire until the very end. (This guy is Canadian, does comedy)


Anyone been following Ivermectin use against COVID?

Ivermectin has shown some promise as having a powerful antiviral effect on COVID. I heard about Ivermectin v COVID a few weeks ago but wrote it off as the new hydroxychloroquine “miracle” hype. However, new data has come out which is showing this anti-parasite drug might actually be effective.

The FLCCC has added it to their COVID protocol (the FLCCC rules hydroxychloroquine as NOT effective BTW).

Hope it’s ok to post this info. I don’t take it as quack science based on the new information coming out. This drug has been used in humans across the world for over 30 years so the safety data is known. Not without some side effects but overall very safe.

I dunno...interesting..

Drug reverses age related decline in mice within days of first dose--also may treat ALS/Parkinsons

According to this article this drug could also open up potential breakthrough therapies for diseases like Alzheimer’s, ALS and Parkinson’s.


Flu cases WAY down due to COVID measures

Happily (and not surprisingly) flu is waaaay down due to all the precautions taken for COVID. Though there is an increase in flu shots being given, that's not enough to account for flu being down 98% in the US and only 51 positive cases out of 83,000 tests in Australia, Chile, and South Africa combined.

I've always been a bit frustrated at the over-focus on flu shots over other precautions like hand-washing, etc. Though the CDC would mention hand-washing as being an important part of flu prevention, it was always more of a footnote. SO much focus on the flu shot that it made many believe they were now immune (or, if they did get sick, it wouldn't be as bad of a case). So why bother with hand-washing?


Excerpt from linked article:

"These findings suggest that certain community mitigation measures might be useful adjuncts to influenza vaccination during influenza seasons, particularly for populations at highest risk for developing severe disease or complications."

Gee, ya think??

Wow, how did I miss this performance of Stairway to Heaven? (Ann Wilson at Kennedy Perf Arts)

And the Obamas were in the audience too. Man, I miss normal times ...

Note to media: It's a CON! Stop giving airtime to Trump and associates election claims!

Trump is in his element right now, laughing all the way to the bank. All these outrageous claims made by Trump, Rudy, Jenna Ellis, etc. are outrageous for a reason—to get the media to talk about it!!! Trump knows how to get his idiot supporters to believe anything so why is the media allowing themselves to be his microphone. They might as well include links to Trump’s fundraising PACS.

Everyone asks questions like “Why would an attorney like Jenna Ellis, who used to hate Trump, go down into the gutter with him?” MONEY!!! It’s not that hard to figure out!

Until something that could legitimately throw a wrench into the 2020 election happens the media needs to stop being Trump’s stooge. Actually that is giving the media too much credit, they know exactly what’s going on and are playing along for their own selfish reasons—ratings (which also boils down to money). So sick of it.

Sidney Powell retweets Trump cancel "January 6" Georgia runoff

As maddening as this tweet is, I missed the fact that is listed the wrong date for the Georgia runoff, but 2 sharp eyed twitter users didn’t. I laughed out loud.

Haha! Great Public Service video from Germany about the importance of staying home during COVID

Funny and a great way to get out the message:
