the reflexivity of the overton window
Here's a data point: at church yesterday the CDC was mentioned and over half of the congregation laughed. Mention of the CDC three years ago would have elicited no response.
Burn it and the FDA and all 3 letter DC agencies to the ground.

Your comment that health data should all be open source is an excellent one! We could find a lot of medical mistakes if anonomyzed health and health care data were made available in open source for researchers.
i was complaining about the CDC back in 2016, they were/are compromised by the simple fact that they own patents in vaccines and vaccine tech. everything is compromised
"in a modern data age, the idea that we cannot do better with open systems of combined medical data provided by choice by the people themselves into secure, open source pools for competitive and transparent analysis checked and validated by real, universal peer review instead of the data suppression and shaping of the closed cloisters and cathedrals of policy is ridiculous."
When a few dozen of us started Primary Doctor Medical Journal, https://PDMJ.org, this is exactly what we had in mind. We are all volunteers, with minimum four reviewers in peer review for each research paper (usually more), and a number of our published studies were written by people in other professions besides medicine, including from other fields, such as engineering and data analysis, which helps to bring in fresh perspectives.
Most importantly, we take no funding, and are committed to staying all volunteer, online only, lowest costs possible.
We are always open to expanding our group of reviewers and are always eager to see new writing on topics of public health, epidemiology, immunology and preventive medicine especially, as well as from other fields pertaining to human health.
Has anyone done the number-crunching to see how much is spent on the CDC, NIH, and FDA on an annual basis and how much could be returned back to every taxpaying American if we liquidated them? 💰
I hope you're right. The CDC definitely needs to go, but it's so much more than that. Governments and their satellite institutions around the world have proven to be irreparably corrupt. I hope the CDC's demise is the first of many, but I hope thousands are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Too many people rapidly succumbed to depths of depravity that were inconceivable pre-pandemic. They used the privileges we bestowed on them to acquire wealth and power. They gleefully amplified fear. They tore communities and families apart to do it. They are sick. The crimes they committed are sick. The damage they have done is incalculable.
They must pay.
Sauron forged the One Ring in secret. The will to dominate.
But now there's a glimmer of hope that the Ring can be destroyed.
It can't be undertaken by Gandalf, and certainly not by Saruman. It's going to have to be Hobbits of the Shire, like it or not.
• And the CDC somehow prevented renters from being evicted. 🤯
This post is serious business. But I can't stop laughing at the memes. LOL Gato!
"in 2109 if you had said 'disband the CDC' in the headline …"
Lord help us if we still have the CDC in 2109 😹
I said this to so many people the second they flip-flopped on the masks. I am a physician and we’ve never masked before in any other respiratory viral season. The RCT showed us they don’t work. So either they were extremely incompetent with their previous data or they are lying now. I actually had conversations with physicians about the injections. No one in good conscience could actually recommend it when they had absolutely no idea if they were going to be harmful short-term or long-term. And whether or not they would actually be effective. No physician should dole out any medication with so little information. I’m actually starting to even question our annual mammograms and the fact that so many women are getting diagnosed with breast cancer. Someone please tell me that it’s not them messing with people on that too. I’m thinking it’s such a huge business to diagnose it do surgery with reconstruction, chemo, radiation. Plus this annual dosing of radiation to ourselves seems counterproductive.
When I first began calling for the CDC to be dissolved nearly a year ago, everyone thought I was about one taco short of a combination plate. Now when I call for the disbandment of HHS, who oversees not only the CDC but the FDA, NIH, NIAID and numerous other unconstitutional agencies, people listen. When HHS is gone we can then dissolve the corrupt DOJ, the FBI and the CIA who seem to be partnered with the democrats to bring down Trump (not that I'm a fan of Trump as this link makes clear. https://secularheretic.substack.com/p/donald-j-trump-the-story-no-one-wants
Ahhh...El Gato 🐈⬛ - you are definitely, “The cat’s meow” with your superb articles! (I’d like to think that even God is smiling at these truths! ) 👏🤗🙌
I'd love an apology. From Pouchy, from the CDC, and, most importantly, from "friends" who ostracised us for not taking the jab, for not falling in step with the ideology. From our idiot mayor, who felt it was okay to keep people like us from using restaurants and going to museums. From arts organisations that wouldn't let us in to listen to concerts or look at paintings. From politicians who menacingly implied that the unvaxxed should be denied medical care (how about the obese, or smokers? we don't deny them care) or worse. From idiots who continue to mask and gaze with terror over their muzzles at the unmasked.
I'm trying not to be angry, but it's not easy. As the late Carrie Fisher once said, “Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. ” I struggle constantly not to drink the poison.
