This 3 minute clip from the film "My Dinner With Andre" (1981) eerily describes the social phenomenon of what we are witnessing in our world these days. https://tinyurl.com/mpdxshvj

MLG has issued new updated warning:

This wicked and hideously evil virus can ONLY be transmitted via respiration.

For the love of God -- STOP INHALING!!! If you MUST engage in respiration, exhale only. If New Mexicans would agree to only exhale, and abstain from inhaling, I won't have to face the difficult decision of closing our state again.

The mandate that people stifle their incessant BREATHING is equivalent to denying water for fish. Never before in human existence have so many willingly complied with an edict so perverse and insane.

People have thrown caution to the wind. Everyone should be wearing masks when they are in contact with people. Most people should get vaccinated...check with your doctor as to whether you are an exception. No need to complain about pharma not promoting Ivermectin when you can get it at your local feed store. That is not a recommendation just a statement of fact. Our Governor is talking out of both sides of her mouth by warning about the Delta Variant while opening NM 100%. That policy makes no sense. The case count in Santa Fe County has not declined as much as it has in other parts of NM so it is very dangerous in Santa Fe County. Check the case rate per capita in Santa Fe County. I think it is the highest in the State of New Mexico. The life you save may be your own.

I'm not a right wing conspiracy theorist ... or even a right wing conservative, for the record. I am a concerned citizen who feels our country, if not the world, has been captured by the pharmaceutical companies (though I have no proof of that). But I have to ask myself WHY is the drug Ivermectin being censored from almost all tech platforms, not to mention, the NYT ( I have been been censored twice on comments I have posted on the efficacy of Ivermectin). It's a relatively inexpensive drug that has reams of meta-analysis on how not only is it a prophylactic to COVID, but also a drug that has been given to those already stricken by COVID, to be efficacious in preventing and healing from COVID. It has been given to African countries for over 40 years for River Blindness by the Merck Co., and given over 4 billion times around the globe. Only now is Merck stating that Ivermectin is unsafe for the prevention and treatment of COVID (its patent has expired, making it a cheap drug for all countries around the world ... yes, no company will make a dime off of it. Not to mention, the Emergency Use Authorization of vaccines could have only happened if there were no viable alternatives available, such as Ivermectin). Ivermectin's two scientists were given a Nobel Prize for the drug and the WHO has deemed it one of the most important drugs to date. I, personally, refuse to take a vaccine that the makers are free from any liability should there be adverse effects, either short term or long term. NO ONE can say there are NO long term effects from these vaccines as these vaccines have only been in use for less than a year. Ivermectin has shown to be 86% effective against COVID-19 and for those who are vaccine hestitant or unable to take a vaccine, this drug could be a game changer in the pandemic. We would reach herd immunity if those people were on Ivermectin. Yet, for some reason, this drug is not allowed to be spoken about on YouTube, NYT, or other platforms. For an understanding of the situation, please listen to Dr. Bret Weinstein on covid19criticalcare.com talking with Joe Rogan (found on the right of the page). Please don't criticize those people who refuse to take a drug that has not gone through the usual FDA approval protocol. Educate yourself about what is at stake here, both health-wise and in speaking truth to censorship.

The censoring of alternative information, alternate from what the biggest vaxx producers are hawking, is glaring, suspicious and detestable. This article is written by a certified nutrition coach and he's compiled 18 reasons to not take the vaxx. The first on the list is the fact that every manufacturer has been released of all liabilities for harm or death caused by their concoctions. Snopes has vehemently attacked every fact in this list, so you know this has got to be good. Forget about "right" wing or "left" wing, Paddy, everyone stands to be harmed by these DNA modifiers.

I approve this message... here's a Canadian dude telling it like it is. The government is NEVER going to let you relax. Once you give up your basic human rights the pressure will NEVER cease. Watch this: https://tinyurl.com/mz664bdx

I'm confused? Do we follow the Science or not? CDC says face masks not necessary if you are fully vaccinated: https://www.yahoo.com/news/face-masks-not-necessary-us-144148203.html

This article expresses my opinions on all this quite well:


Steve Martinez

We need to keep the Deltas out of New Mexico.

John Tallent

Went to Santa Fe for a really nice lunch with friends and the 4 of us were the few and far between who had masks.

Whew, I think NM is in for a long summer of more virus cases because of the the stubborn (polite wording) folks running around.

Glad I live in the mountains!


Mike Johnson

Again, more exaggerations about this India variant. According to the Scientific American yesterday: "....there is not enough data to say whether or not Delta is more deadly than other variants." And: "Fortunately, vaccination appears to provide good protection against Delta..." So if you are vaccinated, there is no danger and according to CDC to can resume normal life without masks and social distancing. People need to stop with the paranoid germaphobe reactions and accept the vaccinations solve the problem and get on with your normal life. As for those who refuse to be vaccinated, you are on your own here.

Tom Hyland

Mike, I've always enjoyed your point of view on so many matters. Direct, to the point, freedom loving, however, you've disappointed me by taking the jab. Obviously you didn't do your homework. These vaccines are not vaccines, in the traditional science. They are DNA modifiers and are unpredictably dangerous. When the swine flu vaccine was administered the product was removed from humanity when the death rate reached about 50. These "vaccines" have killed more than 5,000 people already according to the CDC VAERS reports.

Emily Koyama

Many more than 5k would already be dead sans the vaccines. Not rocket science.

Tom Hyland

The "vaccines" are killing people... a lot of people. Glad you agree, Emily. Let's wait to see what happens to the vaxxed in the next year or two.

Tom Hyland

Here's yet another tragedy. This 45 year old fellow from Ohio got the vaxx and was chiding people on Facebook to "shut up and get vaxxed." Just after his second jab he died. He received the Moderna vaxx which I've read derives its name from MRNA meaning it modifies RNA. https://tinyurl.com/5enk3tpw

So true!

Back to daily message of Fear! and Panic! and lockdown? What is survival rate for healthy people under 75 with no co morbidities? Don't ask! Died from covid or with covid? Yep, don't ask! Who profits from covid? Banks bailed out again?

Did you read the same article I did? I read: continue the course but be smart. No new mandates. Get vaccinated. Indian market still happening.

Personally I have lost family members and friends to Covid-19 and have others who survived but more than a year later are still having major side effects from it. That is not the media saying that, that is my family’s story.
