Taking the Big Prize

I am up to my ears in writing fiction this week. My first Western novel SHADOW is casting quite a big penumbra in my life at the moment.

Tonight, I researched the topic of childhood illnesses in the year 1905 in America. There is never a dull moment for me while I compare the “reality” of the CDC today, and the facts and figures that this federal agency used to compile, in the good old days of serving public health for the betterment of all Americans.

The bewigged pigs parasites who stayed too long at the funding fair are costing us too much in terms of liberty and lives. The following CDC figures are intriguing; and I have to wonder if the CDC ghouls pushing the worthless jabs of covid-19-vachine at children are aware of these facts:

Any discussion of death in childhood and the experience of children and families living with life-threatening medical problems has to be put in the context of child health as it has improved during the last century. First, in the United States, death in childhood is now rare rather than commonplace. Second, causes of death in childhood have changed. Third, children have different patterns of mortality than adults. Fourth, although most children are now healthy, a significant fraction lives with serious health problems.” [Gotta keep that Congressional funding consistently increasing!]

In 1900, 30 percent of all deaths in the United States occurred in children less than 5 years of age compared to just 1.4 percent in 1999 (CDC, 1999a; NCHS, 2001a). Infant mortality dropped from approximately 100 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1915 (the first year for which data to calculate an infant mortality rate were available) to 29.2 deaths per 1,000 births in 1950 and 7.1 per 1,000 in 1999.

This decrease in mortality reflects a century's worth of advances in public health, living standards, medical science and technology, and clinical practice. Many infants who once would have died from prematurity, complications of childbirth, and congenital anomalies (birth defects) now survive. Children who previously would have perished from an array of childhood infections today live healthy and long lives thanks to sanitation improvements, vaccines, and antibiotics. In the United States, the average life expectancy at birth rose from less than 50 years in 1900 to more than 76 years in 1999, due in considerable measure to continuing reductions in infant and child mortality (NCHS, 2001c).”

In the panicked race to unseat a sitting President, and then to use the U.S. Population as guinea pigs for an untested, rna-based treatment/vaccine, the lawsuit-immune pharmaceutical industry and their shills, the Propaganda-Media, the moronic Congressionals, and the Arrogant Agency Heads, lost theirs heads during the past year or so.

I await the non-mea culpas from the usual guilty parties in this country. Wrongful Death lawsuits diminished during the past twenty years, and were replaced by Wrongful Birth litigation. The hope-filled and reasonable expectations of many Americans to survive once-upon-a-time death sentences of cancer have morphed into the obscene expectation that there be no mortality rate from any disease. And if there is:

“FIX IT, Doctor. Fast!”

That threat is backed up by the ambulance-chasing lawyers and the malpractice and class-action lawsuits that do, indeed, drive up the costs of Medicine in America.

The greedy hogs at the big-pharma trough are not going to take the big prize. They are going to take the 5th. And We the People should take a breather from the pipe dream that decrees that any law outlaws disease, suffering, death, and a doomed fate in the hereafter. That voyage to hell awaits the big-named and famed evil men and women once this 0-Level-Virus farce has ended.

Poet William Wordsworth in 1789 spoke volumes for the healers of his epoch who were so grievously unable to treat, much less heal, the childhood diseases of that time and place.

A simple child, that lightly draws its breath, And feels its life in every limb, What should it know of death?

May we all be thankful to God for the astonishing advances of the true medical science that, only a few decades ago, possessed enough humility to be able to take the big prize, and esteem that reward — of doing no harm.
