  • HHS expects over 1 mln antibody doses from Regeneron, Lilly in 2020 [Trump success provides impetus for the rest of us!]

    Yahoo Finance ^ | 10/9/2020 | Michael Erman, et. al.
    A top U.S. health official said on Friday that the government expects to have access to over 1 million doses of Regeneron Pharmaceutical Inc's and Eli Lilly's & Co's antibody treatments for COVID-19 in 2020. The official, speaking on a call with reporters, said that the government will allocate the treatments to the states based on need, similar to the mechanism they used with Gilead Sciences Inc's antiviral drug remdesivir for COVID-19. Both companies have said the drugs were shown to work in clinical trials and that they have submitted an emergency use authorization to the U.S. Food and Drug...
  • More public schools, which are supposed to be free, are charging hefty fees to reopen (Durham - $140 a week)

    The city of Durham, North Carolina, plans to reopen public elementary schools this fall, but will charge a hefty fee. The surcharge is on top of the substantial local property taxes that parents pay to bankroll the schools. Corey DeAngelis is the director of school choice at the Reason Foundation, a public-policy think tank. He slammed the Durham Public School District, saying its shameless move to charge fees is unconstitutional. DeAngelis tweeted: “Durham is reopening public elementary schools as ‘learning centers.’ They are charging families up to $140 per child per week. That’s on top of what families already pay...

    A George Washington University law professor testified before Congress on the threat posed by Antifa. The respected, liberal leaning professor cautioned lawmakers on how academia has fostered an environment in which the radical leftist group can thrive. George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley testified Tuesday before Congress, in which he warned lawmakers that Antifa is "winning" and that much of academia, whether wittingly or unwittingly, is complicit in its success. "They are winning because universities are now effectively blocking conservative or opposing speakers to avoid violent clashes. They are winning because the media and politicians downplay such violence to...

    (CNN) Nothing can bring back the months of wedding planning that went to waste after coronavirus hit. But one company is hoping it can help alleviate engaged couples' stress during the pandemic with -- what else -- booze. Busch Beer is offering couples whose wedding plans have changed due to the coronavirus a chance to win its free beer for a year. "Whether couples ran to city hall to say 'I do' or are postponing until another time when they can gather friends and family, this small consolation will allow them to focus on what really matters -- each other...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) released his plan to give free, full-day child care for every child beginning at infancy and free preschool education to all children starting at age three at a cost of $1.5 trillion over the next ten years. The federally funded programs would be administered by states and tribes in partnership with local public school systems, and the money would also theoretically pay for workers who run the programs and infrastructure costs.

    They come in the night: Drones — lots of them — flying in precise formations over the Colorado and Nebraska prairie. Whose are they? Unknown. Why are they there? Unclear. “It’s creepy,” said Missy Blackman, who saw three drones hovering over her farm outside Palisade, Neb., on a recent evening, including one that lingered right above her house. “I have a lot of questions of why and what are they, and nobody seems to have any answers.” Since before Christmas, sheriff’s departments in the region have been bombarded with reports of large drones with blinking lights and wingspans of up...

    A Brooklyn trouble-magnet who already dodged bail in an unprovoked attack on three Orthodox Jewish women — only to be busted days later for allegedly assaulting another woman — walked free again Monday. At her second arraignment in three days, Tiffany Harris, 30, was ordered into supervised release for the latest incident, in which she allegedly slugged a woman in the face in front of her two young children early Sunday in Prospect Heights.[snip] Harris, hit with charges including assault, menacing and endangering the welfare of a child, declined comment as she left the courtroom. The incident came just two...

    She calls it “universality” of things that “people need,” but that just means free stuff, even for people who refuse to work. She mentions that healthcare is a “right.” Housing is a “right.” “For the things we depend on to live, we need at bare minimum, a public option if not guaranteed universality,” YouTube screen grab (cropped) Then she mentions the “transition” – to what? She doesn’t say. But a world in which the state provides everything you need is not a market economy, it is a communist “worker’s paradise.” This video requires just over half a minute of...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's promise to boost federal funding for social programs should not be considered "free stuff," because they are in fact "public goods," the New York Democrat said in a Monday tweet. Ocasio-Cortez, who earlier in the day led a Green New Deal town hall about public housing in the Bronx, said she's tired of being accused of essentially bribing voters with financial handouts. "Public education, libraries, & infrastructure policies (which we‘ve had before in America and elsewhere in the world!) are not 'free stuff,'" she tweeted. "They are PUBLIC GOODS. And they are worth investing in, protecting, &...
  • The eye-popping cost of Medicare for All (the Fauxcahontas $34 trillion wet dream)

    The Atlantic via MSN ^ | 10/16/19 | Ronald Brownstein
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to answer repeated questions at Tuesday night’s debate about how she would fund Medicare for All underscores the challenge she faces finding a politically acceptable means to meet the idea’s huge price tag — a challenge that only intensified today with the release of an eye-popping new study. The Urban Institute, a center-left think tank highly respected among Democrats, is projecting that a plan similar to what Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders are pushing would require $34 trillion in additional federal spending over its first decade in operation. That’s more than the federal government’s total cost...

    The Green New Deal, free college, free universal health care, universal basic income, the elimination of student debt, bailouts for unfunded government worker pensions and other ideas animating the new socialist wing of the Democrat Party leave most Americans scratching their heads: Where could they possibly get the money for that? Trillions upon trillions of dollars in proposed new spending, without any apparent regard to financing. Many people ask: Are these candidates and their young supporters deluded?

    Andrew Yang’s (D) aggressive pitch to offer a universal basic income of $1,000 monthly to U.S. adults has been attempted numerous times on a small scale, but the experiments have not necessarily produced the desired results. The Washington Post details an experiment implemented by a nonprofit, which aimed to give “20 African American single mothers living in public housing $1,000 each month for a year” with no strings attached. The experiment began last November, and the women began receiving checks the following month. According to the Post, most of the women – 15 total – were working at the time....

    U.S.—A new candidate has come out of nowhere to surge in the polls in the Democratic primary, and she’s only six years old. Susie Peters of Minneapolis, Minnesota, was on a local news segment where children gave their opinions on world problems, and she asked, “Why can’t we just give everyone everything they want for free?” The message quickly went viral and really resonated with Democratic voters, propelling Susie from unknown to third in most polls, ahead of Bernie Sanders and just behind Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.
