      New England Journal Medicine- Putting M/F on birth certificates is wrong

    A shameful blight on Surgery and Medicine. I was trained, and certified etc. (in plastic and reconstructive surgery), but early on in my career had to understand (for myself ) that doing bad surgery, or surgery for unrealistic expectations,  for money, was not my calling. Doctors are no longer independent of government directives and are pawns in corruption of social politics. One of the big pushers for these surgeries is big pharma, that then has a lifelong income stream of (expensive) drug dependant patients.

      Costa Rica and Bitcoin

    Things seen from afar often can look pretty good, up close the warts may show. A college sunk a chunk of change buying, then building his dream (in Costa Rica), got cleaned out twice when away and then walked away from it all. Closer to home, one of my aunt’s husbands took her down on a trip meant to repatriate an ‘investment property’ and came back empty handed (carribean island). I have heard similiar stories regarding land tenure tribulations in Mexico.

      example of Sand puppy’s

    Your example of flying to a bitcoin friendly country reminds me of a patient I saw (when the Caymans were an effective tax/wealth dodge) in April, He came in very, very uncomfortable, as an emergency referral, from a MD friend , but was unable to sit. It quickly became evident he had a florid ischio rectal abscess (very painful peri anal abscess) and insisted he needed it immediately drained as he was on a flight to the Cayman Islands in a few hours to access his money, made imperative by the tax deadlines. I did not think it wise to accede to his demands from a medical perspective (he needed to not get on that plane), I cannot forget the pain he must have suffered over the next 10 hours (all for tax avoidance).

      Can Governments Stop Bitcoin

    Bitcoin should work; but the problem I have is that when people start using bitcoin instead of fiat currency at the grocery and hardware store, will the government be happy? What will its likely response be. Being no more than bug on the windshield to the ‘elite’, will they respect me in the morning.

      Reply To: What has actually happened?

    The science is settled, Fauci is believable, where I live it is good, everyone should be like me, everyone just needs to get in line for their annual microchip verification. NOT

      PM Daily Market Commentary – 02/17/2021

    With the power woes (and cold) in Texas, how do those bitcoin affectionados feel when the cell towers go down as well? It made me think of our stay in Japan, where it is basically a cash based economy outside of the tourist hotels and circuit. Credit cards were nowhere to be seen where the Japanese shopped. It seems to me that gold has nowhere to go but up, but in the aftermath of the 1918 pandemic it took 10 years to happen then. I would think silver is a real hope (in the near term)  this go round as there is an industrial need that may negate the price manipulation from the big players.

      Nordicjack and the elderly

    I do take exception with categorization of “elderly people” not knowing what is going on. It may be a disinterest in engaging someone who feels in procession of ‘truth’? Or someone not caught up in the media and electronic rabbit holes out there. The elderly I know, have more often lost their convictions of certainty, but not their knowledge base.

      Hydroxychloroquine Controversy

    A fiend in another Canadian city asked for ivermectin Rx from her doctor to treat parasites that had been diagnosed by her naturopath; she got it! Doctors are often averse to debating with their patients the merits of alternate therapists, and choose the less argumentative route by preference.

      Either we do it or we let “them” do it.

    Democratic socialism is a oxymoron; it is a form of moralistic self delusion that is exploited by the inner stalinist that resides in the heart of every liberal control freak. The ‘conflict of visions’ (Thomas Sowell) allows them to be useful idiots in the advancement of “fairness”, “Justice”……and to the gulag

      NEED HELP!!!

    Non pharmaceutical blood thinners can be quite potent and need some care and respect, in my experience; green tea (loose leaf, different types have varying potency), vit E, and aspirin are the big ones I always asked about; and I have witnessed someone who completely anti coagulated himself with those three (he came in to the emerg peeing blood, was discharged with no other problems after 3 days of tests).
