  1. I just love how stupid (LAZY) people can be. They proclaim that the CDC is a Federal Government agency. Wikipedia lists it as:

    “The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC or U.S. CDC) is the national public health agency of the United States. It is a United States federal agency, under the Department of Health and Human Services, and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. ”

    However, a little digging and you will find it’s not what it seems:

    “The CDC, by definition, is a private corporation working on behalf of its stakeholders, which include key players in the pharmaceutical and vaccine industries that profit from the spread of disease, not from real prevention and cures.” –,%20by%20definition,%20is%20a%20private%20corporation,of%20disease,%20not%20from%20real%20prevention%20and%20cures.

    “Some people have questioned my concern over both the CDC and John Hopkins University is a PRIVATE organization where the CDC accepts private funding – NOT ONLY GOVERNMENT! The CDC is quasi-government under the Department of Health and Human Services which strangely has sources of funding that are predicated on the fact that it also has a private 501(c)(3) public charity, like the Clinton Foundation. The CDC Foundation receives charitable contributions and philanthropic grants from individuals, foundations, corporations, universities, NGOs and other organizations to advance the work of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is NOT a government-funded organization. It is not exclusively a government-funded – very curious.” –

  2. Just sh!t canned both FB accounts.
    I’ll be doing the same with this “smartphone”, and internet as soon as I see fit to do so.
    When that happens, I guess I’ll either see you in the field, or on the other side.
    Until that time, let me say:
    It has been an honor 🙂

      1. I’m not the happy camper that I used to be.
        Never did care much for the high tech, it tends to make folks stupid and lazy.
        Besides, internet sure ain’t what it was.
        Gonna try to enjoy life a little before this SOB gotta die popping melons.
        I like this smartphone a lot less than most would think.
        It’s all good, and the trash WILL be took out 🙂

        1. I hear ya brother. I hate technology as it all seems to end up on the dark side.
          As you know I ditched the smartphone quite a while ago. I also ditched FB many years ago. No TV for twelve years. I keep internet for the Trenches and for how to videos.

          1. I have the smartphone to use as hotspot for internet, it’s 4G.
            The problem with internet here otherwise is that I am rural, and haven’t found anything that isn’t 5G.
            Ain’t having 5G!
            Guess I’m done with it.
            I’ll use this POS until fk it drops by and says hello, ya know?

            I can’t remember the last time I had a stupid box 🙂
