I’ve lurked around this site for years, and, on occasion, put forth an article or two. Mostly I just read and listen in on the commentary. Some of it is humorous, some of it is vile, and much of it is informative, but the little bubble of free speech this site represents is a virtual “city on the hill” from Matthew (5:14). The spirit of freedom is what connects us, and even if most of us talk a bigger game than we walk, we are at least willing to talk which is where the intention to walk is born.
Recently I had the opportunity to take a step beyond the talking. After digging into the various posts and links to studies regarding Ivermectin, HCQ, and other alternate treatments for the illness alleged to be SARS COV-2, I got a call that my in-laws were both “positive” for Covid. While I may not think that there is any proof that Covid is a thing, my relatives were very sick. Moreover they are both old, and my mother in-law is caring for my father in-law as he has a cancerous brain tumor. She had gotten to the point where she could no longer physically care for him, and she needed help urgently.
Keep in mind that I own a business and I am currently in the middle of the busiest part of our year. We do a lot of work with “sports ball” stadiums, and whatever your opinion of sport may be it has a pretty hard deadline around the kickoff of the season. Our people are deployed across the nation currently working on multiple projects and will be away from home through the middle of next month. Getting exposed to Covid represents a royal pain in my ass as I am now writing this from isolation where I wait to find out if I am sick as well. That means I can’t help with the deployments until I’m “cleared” by a dysfunctional test, or, if it becomes clear I am not well, for a much longer time frame. As we are invoicing a significant amount of money per deployed hour, I am risking a significant financial hit by choosing to show up and take care of them.
I’m sharing this with you because I realized that by making this deliberate choice I had the opportunity to put my money where my mouth is. As an engineer, I know that filtration involves sealing the boundary between two air spaces, the pore size of the filtration material versus the particles filtered, and numerous other effects like sedimentation, contamination, aerosol vs droplets, ionization, washing, stretching, handling, etc. I can also read many of the papers presented in scientific journals competently, and thus I have concluded, pending new information, that masks are useless for preventing the transmission of viruses.
Similarly I’ve evaluated the FLCCC protocol, similar protocols, and supporting research over the past year or so and have similarly concluded that using Ivermectin in conjunction with Zinc, a Zinc ionosphore like quecertin, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D is an effective prophylaxis against the virus(s) we are calling Covid. Because of that I chose not to wear a mask while helping out, and I chose to take the prophylaxis. Even if it works I could still get sick. Even if it doesn’t work, I may not get sick. My results are just one data point. On the other hand my choice reflects my research and a conscious decision based on data I’ve tracked down and evaluated. Much of that data has first come to my attention here, and that is why I’m writing today.
OK, so you may be thinking, “get to the point”.
I have another opportunity to put my money where my mouth is, and for this I need your help. My daughter will start her Junior year in the local school system tomorrow. While she has spent much of her life and a good bit of my fortune in private schools to this point, when we moved to this town last year my wife and I decided that her best choice here is the public school. And as much as I generally have a very low opinion of public schools I stand by that decision largely based on our lack of other viable options.
This school system, while generally well regarded as far as public schools go, is still primarily focused on risk aversion and compliance as their primary mission. To that end they have re-instituted a mask mandate for all students, a decision that I disagree with rather strongly.
I am about to become a legal pain in the ass of the school board, the city council that appoints said school board, the state school board, the legislature, and likely the court system. I understand that I will not sway the opinion of the apparatchiks on the board, the council, or the state board. They are in it for their own benefit and their decisions are based on their desire to avoid blame and responsibility as well as to comply with directives handed to them on high and profit from their hidden relationships. I’ve worked in the political process before, and I have a clear understanding of the power and powerlessness of a grass-roots movement in the political machine.
The point of this exercise is to put on the record information about the consequences of public policy as relates to our children. To that end I want to provide awareness and resources to the people who will see these meetings. They need to know that our psych wards are filling up with young teens who have attempted suicide; that the increase in YOY successful suicides in school age children far exceeds the deaths from Covid; that children (especially young children) suffer most from re-breathing the air in their masks because of the ratio of lung capacity to mask capacity; that attention spans and learning outcomes are destroyed by masking; that mask re-use, long term wear, and cross contamination from fidgeting means masks are a source of problems; that effective communication is very difficult with masks, that, in short, a mandatory mask policy fails the “first, do no harm” directive of public health, does not provide any measurable benefits, and impedes learning.
I’ve spent a good bit of time reading and following various threads and articles, but what I haven’t done is archive that information in a way that I can use it as a resource to share and present to other groups. Can you help me with that? I’ve asked admin to post this as a sticky for a few days to give the TBP family an opportunity to post links and resources that I can use for this next active step to resist the narrative. I’ll reciprocate your help by creating a shareable resource compilation as well as copies of the presentation(s) I create using these resources. You will have full license to use them freely without restrictions or copyrights.
I don’t know that peaceful resistance will be enough to stop what is coming; however, I believe that, like the founding fathers, it is our duty to try our legal options first. If those fail we may be forced into other less conventional methods of argument; however, until our legal avenues are closed I think we should all become grit in the gears at every opportunity. Show your face. Speak out. Provide information and resources to others who may not have looked beyond the mainstream media. Advocate for your children. Assert your rights as humans. Resist. Do not tolerate evil. Do.
