This original sin isn’t about religion, it’s about how immune systems work and don’t work. In fact, it could be about how a vaccine can end up killing you. Even the CDC and NIH are fully aware of the phrase “Original Antigenic Sin.” It’s not anti-vaxxer radicalization. It has been discussed in scientific papers for decades. It’s about the way vaccines train the immune system. You’ll find many references to this topic in medical journals and even on the CDC’s own website.1
For the scientific explanation I’ll refer to a report in the September 2017 Journal of Autoimmunity, Volume 83, titled “Original antigenic sin: A comprehensive review.” Here is the Abstract word for word:2

A recent poll indicates 38% of the population approves of Biden’s performance. Does that mean 38% of the folks reading this column do not understand what it takes for businesses to thrive? If so, then the public and private education systems are doing a horrible job of educating Americans about free enterprise and how it works. So, maybe I need to explain how even a little business, like Slanker Grass-Fed Meat, must function in order to be sustainable.1
Professional politicians, bureaucrats, the military, and nearly all other government employees (including teachers and professors at universities) have a totally different perspective on life than do folks in the private sector. It’s built into their DNA by time-tested risk and reward influences.

We always enjoy hearing from customers. Well, maybe not “always.” There’s the old saying that no matter what you do you can’t please everyone. But doing your best to please loyal, supportive customers is critically important for keeping a business sustainable.
The main objective of our business is to encourage the consumption of the healthiest food known to exist. Our grass-fed meat, Omega-3 meat, and wild-caught fish is just that. We don’t try to make them appear to be more than what they actually are—which is the world’s most perfect health food. Unfortunately, at least for humans, they are far from the world’s most popular food.

Civilization depends on integrity. Today though, there’s a bunch of very powerful folks in the Radical Far Left who don’t have any integrity. They are driven by an ideology that defends and increases their positions of power at all costs. But they aren’t alone. In the mix of extreme views are radical folks on the other side of the isle—the Radical Far Right.
It may have been in the late 1960s when I read a commentary Jim Dines’ wrote in his financial letter about liberals and conservatives. In it was a circle with labels for various political factions around its circumference. What struck me was how the left and right were basically the same at the top and the bottom. I never forgot that image.

If immunity can be weakened, then it most certainly can be strengthened. Therefore, since we’re in a pandemic, the message from everyone in the medical field (including the bureaucrats in the CDC and FDA) is that all Americans must take steps to improve their immunity. Also, wouldn’t you think they could instruct everyone on how it’s done?
In spite of the interpretations of the data, the most vulnerable to COVID are not in an age group, they are in the sick group. In medicine, comorbidity is the presence of one or more additional conditions often cooccurring with a primary condition. For instance, an obese person with diabetes and heart disease has two comorbidities. Since the vast majority of deaths involve folks with multiple comorbidities, which are usually chronic diseases, it makes sense to address the causes of those diseases in order to improve health and lower the risk of dying from COVID.1 2

We’re all familiar with these taboos: Religion, Politics, and Nutrition. Discussing these topics is now considered bad manners. What’s commonplace is how often we’re admonished for bringing up any one of these topics when in a gathering. Yet it’s blatantly obvious these days that religion, politics, and nutrition are critically important regarding our society’s very survival?
Anthropologists generally believe the earliest form of “writing” started almost 5,500 years ago in Mesopotamia (present-day Iraq). Before that, which may take in more than two millions years, all of the “recorded” knowledge, history, and entertainment came in story form that was told or acted out by elders. The earliest methods of communication were most likely grunts and sign language. But it’s thought that, in order for humans to work together, crude languages did develop very early in man’s development.1 2 3

Traveling the United States used to be an adventure. Every town was a little different. But it’s less so these days because the USA is a franchise country. Nearly every community with a commercial center is just like the one you left. This has inspired some communities to restructure a core area that defines it as a destination. This past week Linda and I visited two destination towns while traveling from Stuart, Florida, to Powderly, Texas, and back. One city was Oklahoma City and the other was Nashville.
Since food and nutrition are our hot buttons and eating is a necessity, the restaurants in every location came into a sharp focus. Powderly is a waypoint on Highway 271, a four-lane highway, with businesses scattered alongside it, a grade school, and a post office. There are several eating establishments and most are independent with one being a Dairy Queen. So in terms of unique restaurants that can represent an area, Powderly was the most unique. Unfortunately, the restaurants are very basic eateries that offer food from the Standard American Diet (SAD). In other words it’s tasty, low-cost, and filling. So you need your health insurance.

This week we were cancelled by Constant Contact, our email mailing house, because they say we can ruin their reputation! The issue they have is that I had a link in a newsletter that went to Mike Lindell’s election cyber security forum. Unbeknownst to me, that website address had been listed (for an unspecified reason) on spamhaus.org.
Here’s how Spamhaus describes themselves: “The Spamhaus Project is an international nonprofit organization that tracks spam and related cyber threats such as phishing, malware and botnets, provides realtime actionable and highly accurate threat intelligence to the Internet's major networks, corporations and security vendors, and works with law enforcement agencies to identify and pursue spam and malware sources worldwide.”1

It’s an age-old debate and America’s health bureaucrats (CDC, FDA, and USDA), the medical profession, MSM, many politicians, the oligarchs, and animal rights warriors are all firmly planted on the vegetarian side of the argument.
They promote an anti-meat agenda based on their perceptions of agricultural practices, their flawed interpretations of today’s health outcomes, overblown global warming theories, exaggerated animal cruelty claims, mistaken water consumption projections, unscientific methane emission claims, alarmist food safety concerns, ignorance regarding land usage, and no common sense. Yes, they are way out of touch with reality.
