In this epilogue to my five-part series, I wanted to provide a few recent updates and analyze some problematic, ongoing issues.

Herd Immunity and Spike Protein Concerns

On Monday, health experts publicly confirmed what I stated in part 5 last week (i.e., that we will not reach herd immunity with vaccines). This was their first admission, but had been obvious for quite some time. The Covid vaccine was developed based on the original virus that is now almost defunct given the most recent CDC report on variants dated April 10th, 2021 shows only 4% of current U.S. infections are from…


Let’s think broadly about the vaccine picture. There are nearly 8 billion people on earth. The drug companies have announced that people will need to return for boosters after 6 months due to the possible waning of the immune response along with necessary revisions for new variants. Given this, does 16–32 billion shots every year for every human on the planet sound practical?

I’m sure the drug companies don’t mind the sound of this, as it would be extremely profitable for them. However, given the rapidly shifting variant picture, vaccines that only produce effective immunity will likely not be enough…


A few weeks ago in an interview with CNN, Dr. Redfield, former CDC Director, indicated that he felt it was most likely that Covid-19 had been developed in and had leaked from the Wuhan lab. After this interview the media shared his view but also said he “had no evidence” in an effort to undermine or downplay his perspective. This is especially infuriating as there is currently no definitive evidence of the exact source of the Covid-19 virus. So, anyone discussing possibilities technically has no evidence by this standard.

However, a large number of facts actually point to the possibility…


Before getting into the challenges of asymptomatic infections and variants, I wanted to note that Dr. Fauci was quoted last Friday as saying he would not be willing to dine indoors or go to a movie theater even though he’s been fully vaccinated. Why? Because he understands everything I’ve shared in part 1 and part 2 and knows the substantial limitations of the protection he has at this point. If Covid shots produced sterilizing immunity in the way that Measles and other vaccines do, no health measures or activity reluctance would be necessary after an individual had been fully vaccinated.


Media messaging continuously stresses that good citizens who “believe in science” will get the Covid vaccine and that, for the most part, only those who are anti-science, anti-vaxxers, uneducated, or Republican men (especially Trump supporters) have concerns about the vaccine. The idea is apparently to try to shame anyone who has rational concerns into taking the shots because you don’t want to be lumped in with any of those painted as undesirables.

A news segment that I found somewhat offensive and manipulative featured a reporter in a rural Oklahoma cafe early one morning asking people’s opinion of the vaccines. Most…


Before I start on this series sharing Covid and vaccine information that I don’t believe has been adequately communicated by the media, here are some important things to know about me:

–I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I was vaccinated as a child and think all kids should get the standard set of vaccines.

–I’m not anti-science or lacking education. I have earned two Master’s degrees and a Ph.D. Plus, I’ve spent a lot of time in the past year reading medical and virology research articles about the Covid virus and the vaccines.

–I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I don’t think Bill…


In a financial crisis, everyone should be asked to do more. Everyone — individuals and families of all income levels as well as businesses of all sizes.

It is unconscionable to give a free ride to some businesses and favor higher wage earners while proposing substantial increases on lower wage earners in order to address the fiscal crisis in Kansas.

For the past several weeks, various members of the Kansas Legislature have been discussing flat income tax plans to address the ongoing, multi-year State revenue crisis. All of the flat tax proposals being discussed are unacceptable as they all inflict…


The Electoral College will NOT overthrow the general election result on December 19th.

Despite the hopes of many who were disappointed with the election and were searching for a miraculous event that would produce a different victor, the outcome of the election will stand and Donald Trump will be the next President.

People need to understand how the Electoral College actually works. It is clear that those saying there is a reasonable chance for a reversal of the general election do not understand the process and its limitations.

The first extremely important aspect is that many states have laws binding…


Senator Bernie Sanders’ victory in Michigan can put him on the path to overtaking Hillary Clinton provided that all of us reach out to encourage fellow Democrats with upcoming primaries and caucuses. Next up will be the Super Tuesday (March 15th) states — Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Florida, and North Carolina. I sincerely hope that everyone who reads this will share it, especially with those who will vote in an upcoming primary or caucus.

I will outline the following in making the case for why Bernie is the better choice to be the nominee:

  • The distorted delegate presentation by the media…
