RAPID RESPONSE (Archives)...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section.  It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours.  Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction.  Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective.  But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.  That's all I promise.

"CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?" - AGAIN?

1) Aspirin is an ANTI-INFLAMMATORY.
The Inflammatory part of the Immune System is excessively active during anything but a mild COVID-19 case!
I have been stating this since March in this section. It should not have been rocket science.
It took four months for the scientists and academicians to come to this realization and to recommend Dexamethasone - a Steroid and an anti-inflammatory for "cytokine storm". Then came the "need" for Double-Blind/ Cross-Over studies to "confirm".
Must the use of aspirin go through the same labyrinth while patients suffer and die?.
"Follow the Science"...but beware myopic scientists.

Tale of Two Recoveries
America’s sharp and quick economic rebound reminds us of the one that never happened.

By
James Freeman
Oct. 29, 2020 3:50 pm ET

Has the U.S. economy officially ended former President Barack Obama’s “new normal” of sluggish growth and diminished expectations? The speed and strength of America’s post-shutdown revival should inspire U.S. workers and investors to raise their expectations.

The Journal’s Harriet Torry reports:
The economy grew at a record pace in the third quarter—increasing 7.4% over the prior quarter and at a 33.1% annual rate—recovering about two-thirds of the ground it lost earlier in the coronavirus pandemic... The increase in growth, the biggest jump in records dating to 1947, followed a record decline earlier in the pandemic when the virus disrupted business activity across the country.

Josh Mitchell of the Journal notes another highly encouraging report:
The number of Americans filing initial claims for unemployment insurance fell last week to the lowest level since the pandemic began, suggesting layoffs are easing despite a rise in coronavirus infections.

Initial jobless claims, a proxy for layoffs, fell by 40,000 to 751,000 in the week through Oct. 24, the Labor Department said Thursday. That was the lowest level of claims since mid-March, just before the pandemic shut down much business activity throughout the U.S.

Americans are enjoying just the kind of sharp, strong rebound one hopes to see after a downturn. But our recent history suggested to some that such robust revivals were no longer in the cards. After the U.S. economy descended into a period of decline from late 2007 until mid-2009—what some have called “the great recession”—Americans waited and waited for the powerful growth breakout that never arrived.

As President beginning in January of 2009, Barack Obama presided over what became known as a “new normal” of slow recovery and limited opportunity. Economists in and out of government have spent years trying to figure out why economic growth and jobs didn’t bounce higher.

In 2018 Peter Ferrara took a crack at an explanation:
Milton Friedman was the first economist to notice a pattern in American economic history: The deeper the recession, the stronger the recovery. The economy has to grow even faster than normal for a while to catch up to where it would have been without the recession. The fundamentals of America’s world-leading economy are so strong that the pattern held throughout the country’s history.
Until the past decade. The 2008-09 recession was so bad, the economy should have come roaring back with a booming recovery—even stronger than Reagan’s boom in the 1980s. But Mr. Obama carefully, studiously pursued the opposite of every pro-growth policy Reagan had followed. What he got was the worst recovery from a recession since the Great Depression.
Before Mr. Obama, in the 11 previous recessions since the Depression, the economy recovered all jobs lost during the recession an average of 27 months after the recession began. In Mr. Obama’s recovery, dating from the summer of 2009, the recession’s job losses were not recovered until after 76 months—more than six years...
Before Mr. Obama, in the 11 previous post-Depression recessions, the economy recovered the gross domestic product lost during the recession within an average of 4.6 quarters, or a little over a year. It took Mr. Obama’s recovery 14 quarters, or 3 years, to reach that point. The Reagan recovery took half that time.

The Obama policy mixture of higher taxes and surging regulation was combined with public malinvestment. In 2012 your humble correspondent reviewed an informative book devoted to Mr. Obama’s signature jobs program:
Sold as a way to create jobs while building infrastructure and an environmentally sensitive economy, the stimulus plan was drafted in haste by Democrats in Congress and then signed by Mr. Obama on Feb. 17, 2009. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was priced at $787 billion when enacted; the official estimate is now more than $800 billion. In “Money Well Spent?” Michael Grabell of the nonprofit news organization ProPublica explains where all those dollars went...
After the act was signed into law, Vice President Joseph Biden became a stimulus cheerleader and urged the local politicians who would be receiving much of the money not to waste it on “stupid things.” He was asking the impossible. But what is perhaps most striking in this tale is not the waste of particular boondoggles but the program’s failure to meet its own goals.
If the aim was to create jobs, why were the funds not specifically directed to areas with the highest unemployment? If the aim was to underwrite vital construction projects, why did an Alaskan village called Ouzinkie, population 167, receive a $15 million airport? “By contrast,” Mr. Grabell notes, “major hubs such as Newark and Las Vegas didn’t get any stimulus money. Atlanta, the busiest airport in the world, received nothing in the first round of grants.”

With money carved out of the stimulus for Democratic constituencies such as government workers and for various anti-poverty programs, only about 10% of the spending, or $80 billion, was devoted to infrastructure—and very little of that total went to critical work. The political necessity to fund the “shovel-ready” projects promised by the president meant that money didn’t go to the bridges most in need of repair but to jobs that could quickly clear the thicket of regulatory permitting. Repaving roads was a typical activity; less than 12% of the infrastructure spending went for work on bridges.
By 2016, voters were so fed up with the wasted taxpayer investment, lackluster economy and diminished opportunity that they took a shot on a businessman and rookie politician to serve as president. If voters selected Donald Trump to end the “new normal” of slow growth, it looks like they’ve been vindicated.

Good thing we don’t have to worry about Joe Biden running stimulus programs anymore!

Keep Smiling!
 
1. The dumbest thing I ever bought was a 2020 planner.
2. I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone.  He asked me what I was wearing.
3. 2019:  Stay away from negative people.  2020:  Stay away from positive people.
4. The world has turned upside down.  Old folks are sneaking out of the house and their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!
5. This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her dog.  It was obvious she thought her dog understood her.  I came into my house and told my cat.  We laughed a lot.
6. Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit.  Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.
7. Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep washing our hands?
8. This virus has done what no woman has been able to do.  Cancel sports, shut down all bars and keep men at home!
9. I never thought the comment, “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!
10. I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.
11. I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to the Backyard.  I’m getting tired of the Living Room.
12. Appropriate analogy.  "The curve is flattening so we can start lifting restrictions now” is like saying “The parachute has slowed our rate of descent, so we can take it off now.” 
13. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask and asking for money.
14. The spread of COVID-19 is based on 2 things:
      o   How dense the population is.

Now read "Amy Coney Barrett's Religiosity", by Daniel Henninger (in WSJ Oct. 15, 2020, Opinion, pA15). "Her faith lives strongly within her. How sad if modern liberalism cannot abide the hopeful center of Amy Coney Barrett's life".
  2. More on the next Justice of the USSC. Read "Amy Coney Barrett Opens Up", by Jonathan Turley (in WSJ Oct. 16, 2020, Opinion, pA15). "The problem is not that the Democrats did not learn what they would get in a Justice Amy Coney Barrett. The problem is that she told them precisely what they would get."
  3. Talk about being "unmoored": the nation's Teachers' Unions have become totally anti-education. See the bulging section on this web site called "Public Education Politics" - going back many years.

MORE ON LIVING WITH THIS PANDEMIC.

This article describes 5 important insights and treatments for COVID-19 which I have been reporting about on this RR site since they each became known beginning in March. Particularly the "cytokine storm" and its treatment should have been an early no-brainer.

That's why panic and anxiety should have no place as we go forward living with this challenge for many months to come. Will we all survive? Probably not. But everything in life is a Risk-To-Benefit analysis.
So USE COMMON SENSE: social distancing; an effective mask when that is not possible; hand washing; and Avoiding Large Gatherings...where there will always be some selfish idiots generally between the ages of teens and thirties. Also, get your Flu shot; and reverse any poor life-style habits which are much more likely to kill you prematurely.

Professor of Pharmacy at U of Toronto update on advances made to deal with COVID-19

A professor of Pharmacy at U of Toronto sent this clearly worded update to his family.
For this pandemic there’s a greater chance of survival for those getting infected 3 months later like June 2020 than those who got infected 3 months earlier say February 2020. The reason for this is that Doctors and scientists know more about Covid-19 now than 3 months ago and hence are able to treat patients better. I will list 5 important things that we know now that we didn’t know in February 2020 for your understanding.  
 
1. COVID-19 was initially thought to cause deaths due to pneumonia - a lung infection and so Ventilators were thought to be the best way to treat sick patients who couldn’t breathe. Now we are realizing that the virus causes blood clots in the blood vessels of the lungs and other parts of the body and this causes the reduced oxygenation . Now we know that just providing oxygen by ventilators will not help but we have to prevent and dissolve the micro clots in the lungs. This is why we are using drugs like Aspirin and Heparin ( blood thinners that prevents clotting) as protocol in treatment regimens in June 2020.
 
2. Previously patients used to drop dead on the road or even before reaching a hospital due to reduced oxygen in their blood - OXYGEN SATURATION. This was because of HAPPY HYPOXIA where even though the oxygen saturation was gradually reducing the COVID-19 patients did not have symptoms until it became critically less, like sometimes even 70%. Normally we become breathless if oxygen saturation reduces below 90%. This breathlessness is not triggered in Covid patients and so we were getting the sick patients very late to the hospitals in February 2020. Now since knowing about happy hypoxia we are monitoring oxygen saturation of all Covid patients with a simple home use pulse oximeter and getting them to hospital if their oxygen saturation drops to 93% or less. This gives more time for doctors to correct the oxygen deficiency in the blood and a better survival chance in June 2020.
 
3. We did not have drugs to fight the corona virus in February 2020.  We were only treating the complications caused by it... hypoxia. Hence most patients became severely infected. Now we have 2 important medicines FAVIPIRAVIR & REMDESIVIR ... These are ANTIVIRALS that can kill the corona virus. By using these two medicines we can prevent patients from becoming severely infected and therefore cure them BEFORE THEY GO TO HYPOXIA. This knowledge we have in JUNE 2020... not in February 2020.
 
4. Many Covid-19 patients die not just because of the virus but also due the patient’s own immune system responding in an exaggerated manner called CYTOKINE STORM. This stormy strong immune response not only kills the virus but also kills the patients. In February 2020 we didn’t know how to prevent it from happening. Now in June 2020, we know that easily available medicines called Steroids, that doctors around the world have been using for almost 80 years can be used to prevent the cytokine storm in some patients.
 
5. Now we also know that people with hypoxia became better just by making them lie down on their belly - known as prone position. Apart from this a few days ago Israeli scientists have discovered that a chemical known as Alpha Defensin produced by the patients White blood cells can cause the micro clots in blood vessels of the lungs and this could possibly be prevented by a drug called Colchicine used over many decades in the treatment of Gout. So now we know for sure that patients have a better chance at surviving the COVID-19 infection in June 2020 than in February 2020, for sure.
 
Going forward there’s nothing to panic about Covid-19 if we remember that a person who gets infected later has a better chance at survival than one who got infected early.
 
Let’s continue to follow precautions, wear masks and practice social distancing.

AND NOW, A PERSONAL / PROFESSIONAL REFLECTION.

In 1964, when I decided to join a political party, I joined the Democratic Party. From then until 1990, I worked for the Party, including in elected public office for 6 years (three terms). By then the Democratic Party had morphed into something I could not recognize. So, holding my nose, I joined the Republican Party.
My experience since then is outlined on my web site, especially since 2003 on the Rapid Response section of that site (www.asthma.drsprecace.com)

"Meanwhile, back at the ranch", aka my life as a practising physician since 1957 - and counting -  I was a member of the American Medical Association until 1990, when I realized that that august body had become an obsequious shell of its former self in its efforts to "be at the table"...the political table - while actually being relegated to under the table in effectiveness for our public and professional health. To that was added the American College of OB/GYN that came out supporting Abortion!  Another notable has become the American College of Physicians, of which I am a FACP, with reliably "liberal" positions arguably at variance with the large majority of its members. 
Now comes the New England Journal Of Medicine, in its Editorial for October 9,2020 (Linked below). Neither "scientific" nor actually measured in the facts it presents - and omits - it presents as its position a screed that greatly demeans itself. Henceforth, we must add it to the growing list of prostituted "scientists'' and "science" that have so declared themselves since the beginning of this election cycle: aka the last 4 years.

Why Grandpa's Carry Guns?

My old Grandpa said to me, "Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take a whoopin'."
 I don't carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.
 I don't carry a gun because I'm evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.
 I don't carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.
 I don't carry a gun because I'm angry; I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
 I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
 I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
 I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
 I don't carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.
 (Read carefully.....this is a biggy.)  Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.
 Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take a whoopin'!

 Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
 With guns, we are 'citizens'; without them, we are 'subjects'.
 During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.
 SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
 IT'S A NO BRAINER!  DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN  EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
 I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!  If you are too, forward this.   If you're not a believer, reconsider the true facts.  This is history; not what's being shown on TV, sanctioned by our illustrious delusional leaders in Washington .

This should go for grandmas also.  Do you have yours?

WOW. WHAT A TIME IN OUR ALWAYS CONSEQUENTIAL LIVES.

Today, a Gatling Gun Edition of Pot Pourri.
  1. See my most recent RR offerings about "the debate" and about COVID-19.
  2. "We will be living with the virus indefinitely." (See Holman Jenkins article in WSJ, September 30, 2020).     AND THAT'S A FACT!
  3. See Rudy Giuliani's interview on Fox, Oct. 4, 2020, 7 AM.  GREAT.
  4. "Vote as if your life depends on it": the last sentence of the October 4, 2020 article by Lisa McGinley, in The Day.  IT DOES, ESPECIALLY FOR YOUR CHILDREN.
  5. "The report of my death was an exaggeration", as Mark Twain once noted. But David Collins has a point in his column of October 3, 2020 in The Day regarding the "National U.S. Coast Guard Museum. "I'm looking for leadership here". Since, for so many reasons, the RCDC has failed to market Fort Trumbull, the museum should be re-sited there.    ASAP.
  6. See the excellent Letter to the Editor published by Richard Golden in the Oct. 2, 2020 edition of The Day, regarding the positions of our leaders and "leaders" on the pandemic from the outset. Here are the facts, if you care about such things.
  7. "Oceans absorb much more carbon than previously thought, study finds". And forests, currently being destroyed at a fierce rate world-wide, mainly by design in "third-world countries", are our other greatest defense against global warming. Meanwhile, we are urged to believe that Climate Change and Global Warming our "Settled Science".  NOT QUITE!
  8. Can we Catholics be Christian / charitable...and not be Socialist / Marxist?  Pope Francis is making this progressively more difficult.
  9. Here is a "Dog Bites Man" story that newspapers are not supposed to treat as News:  "AS VOTING BEGINS, OUR CHOICE IS JOE BIDEN" (Editorial, The Day, Oct. 1, 2020).
  10. Now if you really want a personal History of the last four tumultuous years, buy and read: "The Tweets Of President Donald J. Trump" (Forefront Books), from 1/20/2017 to 2/5/2020.

HURRAY!

Adrenocorticosteroids should have been part of the treatment of any but the mild cases beginning in March.

Trump Started on Dexamethasone, Has 'Expected' Lung Findings

Who Ever Thought That Kim Jong Un Would Have More Class, Respect Than Democrats?

RR#4

MORE FYI.
And the comment about Juan Williams is right on point. After watching a number of the Fox shows "The Five", I have never seen Williams do anything but regurgitate the pap he has been spouting for years - regardless of the topic at hand.

Greg Gutfeld, Mark Levin Shut Down Democrats With These Perfect Responses To Trump’s COVID Status

SATURDAY, October 3, 2020

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS COVID-19 INFECTION.

That is not news. Nor was it entirely unexpected, in view of his position and responsibilities.
A fine analysis of this development appears in the WSJ Editorial for Oct. 3-4, 2020: "Trump's Positive Covid Test". It is worth a careful read.
What I will note, however, is that living a good and productive life does not come with avoidance of "lemons", but with making lemonade from those inevitable lemons.
This is a lemon for the President. But: a) if he recovers promptly and completely, together with protective antibodies, he will have plenty of time to win the election next month; or b) if he develops a substantial illness and recovers gradually - with or without residua, he will know what to do on behalf of the nation. Given the relevant experience that well over 90% of such affected individuals recover completely, option "a" is highly likely - and will likely work to his advantage.
That is what reveals strength of character and of leadership...making lemonade out of this lemon. I predict that outcome.
Meanwhile, John Q. Public should continue to use common sense (social distancing, effective masks when that is not possible, frequent hand washing and avoidance of crowds or large groups - always likely to include irresponsible idiots.
So, get out from under your bed, get your life back - and help bring your country back to good health.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THIS PUBLISHED BEFORE?

GS

How many coal plants are there in the world today?

Green New Deal???

The EU has 468 - building 27 more... Total  495  

Turkey has 56 - building 93 more... Total  149  

South Africa has 79 - building 24 more... Total  103  

India has 589 - building 446 more... Total 1035  

Philippines has 19 - building 60 more... Total 79  

South Korea has 58 - building 26 more... Total84  

Japan has 90 - building 45 more... Total 135

China has 2,363 - building 1,171 more... Total3,534  

That’s 5,615   projected coal powered plants in just 8 countries.  

USA has 15 - building 0 more...Total 15  
   
And Democrat politicians with their "green new deal” want to shut down those 15 plants in order to "save” the planet.

This is EXCELLENT!!  I knew the rough idea about the number of coal plants, but had not yet seen actual numbers until now.

This makes the point.  Whatever the USA does or doesn’t do won’t make a Tinker’s Dam regarding CO2 unless the rest of the world, especially China and India reduces coal-fired power plants as well.    

The whole “global warming” and “climate change” gambits byDemocrats are to create a *supposedly* sound, scientific basis to justify a federal government power-grab and the passage of MORE laws to increase taxes and increased control of the privately owned power industry and its distribution.  Never forget the *main* motivation they have!  

“Oh, we will SAVE the planet!!”   100% Pure Bull
