Have you ever taken an online IQ test? I have taken these intensive tests 3 times since college, and the ones that I participated in took about an hour each time. And, to my dismay, I am not as smart as I once thought. Test 1 indicated an IQ of 130 where test 2 and 3 were 131 and 129 respectively. To become a member of MENSA requires a minimum of 131 (depending on the specific test taken). Imagine being the one of a group with the lowest score. But I remember what section I got the lowest score on. It was the comparitive section. You have probably had a few of these questions in school before. They usually go like “All racecar drivers can drive a car but not everyone that drives a car is a racecar driver” true or false. That was a simple example but you get the idea of word manipulation. Are you able to see thru the word manipulation to be able to figure out what the sentence means?
My parents took me out of public school and put me in private school when I was in the third grade. Upon testing, it was determined that I was functionally iliterate. Instead of making me go down to the second grade, they went into debt and bought me a Worldbook encyclopedia set. Not just the encyclopedias but the “full boat press” (what the heck does that really mean?) which included a big 2 volume set of dictionaries, a book of synonyms and antonyms, a world atlas and something called a “cyclotron”. With both of my parents tutoring me as well as my teacher, by the end of the 3rd grade, I was in the top of my class. I used to get so angry when I would ask what a certain word meant only to be told “look it up in the dictionary”. You see, words mean things and while there may be two words that mean something similar, each word has a specific meaning.
With: definition 4; having, as in a possession, addition, accessory or an accompaniment. Websters New Twentieth Century Dictionary, second edition 1962
Of: defenition 2; caused by, resulting from. The American Heritage Dictionary second college edition 1976
I heard it said “The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos” Henry Louis Mencken
(Yes, I have both dictionaries in print form and did not use any of the internet web sites. Do you have a printed form of dictionary in your possession? I unfortunately do not have my original World Book Dictionary, but I don’t have my original Spiderman comics from the 1960’s either, darn it!)
Pay close attention to the Covid 19 reports. Now Covid is short for Corona Virus Disease and there are many. Identified by the crown-like spikes on its surface and include, among others, are:
5. MERS-CoV (the beta coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS)
6. SARS-CoV (the beta coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS)
7. SARS-CoV-2 (the ?novel? coronavirus that causes severe acute resiratory syndrom version 2 nicknamed by some as the Wuhan flu for the Chinese labratory that modified a ‘bat’ virus that would not normally effect people but was paid more than 3.7 million USD by the American National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases to conduct ‘gain of function’ experiments. (The head of NIAID is Dr. Faucci)
The reports by local and national media agencies claim ‘x number of people died with Covid-19’. You will notice the reports do not clIm ‘x number of people died of Covid-19’. This is a very important distinction once you realize the word manipulation.
If I give you a coin that you place in your pocket and trip and fall and, for the purposes of this example only, hit your head and die, did you die because you had the coin in your pocket or simply die with the coin in your pocket. With or from, use your brain.
There are numerous reports of word manipulation, or simple manipulation. A man in Colorado is in an automobile accident with 4 times the legal blood alcohol level. He had Covid-19. Did he die with covid or die from covid? Use your brain
Many reports claim that the hospital ER wings are “70%” capacity with Covid-19 patients. But upon closer examination, we see word manipulation. A certain hospital has 20 ER beds and requires 1 nurse per 10 patients, but the hospital is running ‘short staffed’ and only has 1 RN nurse. So the hospital shuts down 10 beds due to staffing shortages which gives them 10 beds. Let us fill 7 beds with covid patients which gives a 70% ER capacity because of staffing shortages. Have you hears of the recent staffing shortages nation wide? Add to that a large number of medical staff refusing to take the Covid-19 vaccine and are being fired by governmental mandate and you can now see the word manipulation. Use your brain.
“Civilization, in fact, grows more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary”. Henry Louis Mencken
In other words, in order for government to maintain and grow its power, government MUST make the populace believe only government can save them.
“…government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.” Ronald Reagan
Ask yourself some questions and think for yourself. If the Covid vaccine is such a good, well developed and researched medicine, why are close to 25% of medical professionals refusing to get it? Use your brain
Why is government officials demanding that even people that have had Covid-19 and have the antibodies, get the vaccine? Use your brain
People are being segrigated by whether or not they have been vaccinated. A government mandate, not law but a mandate, is beeing seperated by whether or not they have recieved, dubbed by some as the “ouchy from Faucci”, the experimental vaccine. I thought segrigation was a bad thing. Now, people are being forced to take this experimental drug or be fired from their jobs. Many bars and restaurants mandate that you prove your vaccine status. Many, and soon most or all airline companies will require proof of vaccination just to fly on their airline. Hmm, can’t work, get food or beverages without some kind of proof or vaccine marker. Sounds like Germany in WWII when the people of Jewish heritage were forced to wear a patch signifying that they were an “under-class” and were prevented from getting certain services simply because they were Jews. Use your brain.
Yes, Covid is real. Many people have died FROM it. But the survivability rate is close to 99%, much better than other types of flu. Yes, there are co-mobilities that make it worse, but this is far from the “pandemic” that it was originally claimed to be. We shut down our economy, not for “just two weeks to flatten the curve” but for over a year and a half. This is not normal and we should not accept it as such. Use your brain.
Mrs McClaine, mom and dad, thank you for your sacrifices so I could not only read, BUT THINK for myself.
