"People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war, or before an election..." -- Otto von Bismark
The Overlords went to the local hospital today.
Mrs. Overlord -- finally -- had the measurements taken for her new wheelchair. Apparently the previous appointment we had had to be cancelled because the hospital was in the process of moving the clinic into the main building.
That it did this in the midst of a pandemic puzzled me, because that means new construction.
Remember this point later on.
I was told, repeatedly, that since I have not been injected with Sheeple Juice that I would require proof of being virus-free, i.e. a PCR test result taken within the last 72 hours with a negative result. If I did not have one, they said, I would not be able to accompany Mrs. Overlord into the clinic. In fact, I would be barred from the hospital.
I took two tests, at my own expense ($130 a pop), a) I got it before the first appointment was cancelled and b) in order to meet the requirement for the second appointment, and...
...no one asked me for it.
No one asked me for my Vax Papers, either.
In fact, there was no lady at the front door to take my temperature; no other lady with a clipboard asking me about my bowel movements and snot production; no one handing out masks and Purell.
Remember this point later on.
Once inside the hospital, we had to travel quite a bit to get to the Wheelchair Clinic. passing through the halls I was struck by the complete lack of chaos the media insists resides inside a hospital in New York. There was nothing one expected:
No gurneys piled up in the hallways with sick people.
No shortage of hospital personnel that was obvious.
No floors covered in vomit, no walls plastered with blood, no multitude of huddled infirm cowering in corners, or lying on the waiting room floors until bed space could be found for them.
No scenes reminiscent of Omaha Beach.
In fact, there was absolutely no sign of anything out of the ordinary. And trust me: the Overlords spend a lot of time in hospitals.
Remember this point for later on, too.
So, what is one to believe when the daily news reports on the idiot box portray the typical hospital in New York City as an overflowing charnel pit, full of dying people, being tended to by inadequate staff lacking in basic supplies, drugs, protective equipment, ventilators, and...
...you enter a hospital and see no such thing.
What is one to believe when one is continuously told that the Peking Plague is still a vicious killer of untold millions and the fucking hospital you've just entered seems to be operating very efficiently, there no sense of panic, and there's people in scrubs everywhere?
What is one to think when the State and City announce all these rules about who can get into a hospital and what vaccination paperwork is required and all this stuff about testing and tracking and tracing, and you get to the front door and no one so much as asks you your name?
Why does a hospital bursting with dying respiratory cases decide to engage in new construction and to move an entire department from one building to another in the middle of the emergence of a new variant which is supposed to be the most contagious thing EVAH?
Where are the corpses, stacked like cordwood?
Why so many nurses, techs and doctors, all in pristine white coats, going about their business without any sign of panic during the most-deadly outbreak since the Black Death?
Why does no one check vaccination status -- the supposed key to "controlling" the virus and "keeping everyone safe"?
Because it's all BULLSHIT. It always was. You've been lied to, repeatedly, but the two main lies are these:
The first is a Lie of Commission: COVID-19, for all it's virulence, is not the mass-extinction event it has been portrayed as. We already know why it had to be presented as such: Dr. Fuckface and his minions funded the research into a man-made virus that no one wanted, no one needed, and which was supposed to be hidden by use of third-parties so that no one would find out, because doing so was in direct violation of US law and violated every precept of logic and medical principles.
The second was a Lie of Omission: while the Hell of COVID did, in fact, play out, it did so only in the sector of the health care system that is the least-effective, least-efficient, and which is intended to serve the least-remunerative sectors of the industry -- the elderly, the indigent and the illegal immigrant. That system failed. Spectacularly. And if you were a political party about to lose an election and every last one of your platform planks combined at exactly the right moment to fuck everything up, you cause a panic.
I repeat this for those who didn't get it the first 50 times I've written it. If you're The left, you have to believe and cheer for the following:
1. Diversity for it's own sake, or, more-nefariously, as a means of artificially replacing the electorate with one either more-amenable to, or more-easily bribed-by, your platform.
2. Open Borders, to facilitate the entry and bribery of the new Diversity.
3. High-density urban living as an antidote to suburban sprawl and to "save the planet" from Global Warming.
4. Mass transit as a replacement for the private automobile (a notorious and pernicious symbol of freedom, like guns), also to prevent Global catastrophe which is announced every fifteen minutes but then fails to arrive.
5. Government-run healthcare systems that are supposed to be more-egalitarian, cheaper, and provide services to everyone.
And what happens?
The Diversity crosses the Open Borders with a paid-for-by-government Frankenvirus. The virus spreads rapidly through the High-Density urbans -- all over the planet -- aided and abetted by mass transit systems, like subways, buses, airplanes, and, eventually all these diseased Diversities infect the non-Diversities and destroy the public health system which cannot handle the influx of patients because the goal is not "to save lives" but to give the illusion of fairness by treating people according to a program of "a modicum of care at the lowest price possible, while providing jobs for unionized non-achievers".
So much for "ObamaCare", "the Public Option", or whatever else you choose to call it in order to hide it's true nature.
The PRIVATE hospitals, especially here in New York City at the height of Sino Snot Storm, performed admirably. They still are with the arrival of the most-spreadable Omicron, but we're not supposed to notice. All hospitals, we're told, are on the verge of total collapse because of Omicron. They were supposed to be walking the tightrope during Delta.
None of it was true. It's still not true.
So, while others are getting their 4th, 5th, 17th, whatever, fix of government-issued Slave Vaccine under the false impression that the world was ending, there was never going to be any more hospitals ever again, and we were all gonna die horrible deaths, apparently the for-profit sector of the medical establishment was working well enough so that not only weren't there nineteen billion deaths in the Greater New York City area, alone, but that they could even do things like remodel the fucking hospital and move departments around during a pandemic emergency.
So that when I asked how bad it got -- at this hospital -- at the height of the emergency, the response I got was not surprising:
We were busy, but no more than during a really bad flu season. Once you move the Medicaid, illegal and non-insured patients -- who tend to be the sickest -- out to the government hospitals (standard procedure), things return to normal pretty quickly.
They haven't been terribly busy in months.
The problem here is not, as we're always told, "greedy doctors, hospitals and Big Pharma"...it's stupid people in government.
