Where to get COVID-19 Medication - Also, CDC Tries to Pick on Florida and it Backfires in their Faces!
GUESS WHAT? I filmed my podcast! You can now watch me rant and rave on my blog. Write From Karen.  As usual, I'm obsessed with COVID. I think I'm more obsessed by our reaction to COVID than the disease itself. At any rate, if you're vaccine hesitant, (and why wouldn't you be if you've been keeping up with ALL of the information, not just what CNN and the CDC ram down our throats), take heart, there are medications available for you to purchase, indirectly - it's in my show notes and I talk about it on my podcast as well. COVID is not going away, folks. We must learn to live with it. Life must go on, however that looks for you and your family. Mentioned in podcast: Dr Dan Stock: Mt Vernon Community School Corporation (Video at ‘Wrong Again’: Florida Blasts CDC For Posting False Covid Numbers CDC amends Florida’s COVID-19 numbers after pushback from state officials FDA set to approve third vaccine dose for immunocompromised DHS Suggests Opposition To COVID-19 Restrictions Could Make Someone A Domestic Terrorism Threat As Worker Shortages Continue, Walmart Gives Out Bonuses To Stop Employees From Quitting Los Angeles to require vaccinations to buy groceries 'Outrageous': Biden blasted over report of 'vaccine passport' for interstate travel Most vaccine-hesitate group is also the most highly educated Israeli scientist says COVID-19 could be treated for under $1/day How Do I Get COVID-19 Medication Intermission music: Shizima4 by PeriTune | Music promoted by Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0)

Twenty Reasons Why I'm Vaccine Hesitant
I apologize in advance but I talk, non-stop, about COVID hesitancy in this podcast and I list 20 reasons why I'm hesitating on taking the jab. It's all I can think about, largely because it will change the course of my life and my career. I'm torn - I know I need to leave the medical field but there are almost too many options out there for jobs and then there's the timing of quitting and finding a job. I am trying to make the best decision for both me, and my employer, whom I like and respect. It TEARS me up inside that I've been forced to make this decision and I RESENT the hell out of these vaccine mandates. I've been forced into a corner and like a cornered animal, I'm lashing out and very, very angry. I have so many thoughts ... take a listen. Mentioned in podcast: A ‘black hole’ for COVID vaccine injury claims Now PHE spots ANOTHER variant: 16 Brits have tested positive for 'Colombian' strain Lab Alert: Changes to CDC RT-PCR for SARS-CoV-2 Testing More vaccine mandates likely once FDA grants full approvals, experts say Rand Paul delivers on promise, sends official criminal referral on Dr. Fauci to Justice Department mRNA Vaccine Inventor: I Risk ‘Being Assassinated’ For Speaking Out Against Experimental COVID Shots MIT Study: Vaccine Hesitancy Is ‘Highly Informed, Scientifically Literate,’ and ‘Sophisticated’ Pro-abortion Kamala Harris invokes Jesus Christ, claims taking experimental COVID-19 jab is embodiment of ‘loving your neighbor Intermission music: Imagination 00.02 by Electronic Senses | Music promoted by Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported

Hashtag: COVID Idiots Come in All Shapes and Sizes
Here's an interesting experiment: Open a different browser window - type in and see where it takes you. Are you surprised?? I was SHOCKED. The CEO of my hospital did it again - he claimed that "less educated" people didn't fully understand the benefits of the "vaccine." In essence, he called all of his employees that weren't a doctor, "stupid." He's such a swell guy, isn't he?? White House calls on Facebook to ax free speech from individuals that are spreading "misinformation." According to who? White House dictators?? French could face up to six months in jail if they go to a bar or restaurant WITHOUT a COVID pass - there are now THOUSANDS of French protestors in the streets. Is the U.S. next? Cuba shuts down the Internet - again, is the U.S. next? Are you paying attention? There are a lot of crazy things happening in our world. Mentioned in podcast: Young Journalist Covering Protests in Cuba Taken on Live Television by State Police Diabetics make up 40% of COVID deaths in US, experts say Concern grows about vaccine effectiveness against COVID Beta variant White House urges social media to ban COVID 'misinformation super-spreaders' Facebook board member: Free speech is 'not an absolute human right' Shock poll shows staggering number of Americans interested in seceding from union Learning disabilities increase vulnerability to COVID-19 infection, severity of symptoms French face 6 months in jail for entering bar or restaurant without a COVID pass Shark 'advocates' demand rebranding shark attacks as 'shark interactions' 'Really upsetting': Drayton, Ont. server shortchanged on tip because of vaccination status Cuba Shuts Down Internet to Silence Citizens, Hide Ongoing Protests Cuba protests: one man killed and more than 100 missing in historic unrest Intermission music: Positive and Upbeat Music by Mixaund |

I'm at a Crossroads - do I take the Road on the Left, or the Right? Do I Send my Resume Out into the World Now, Or Should I Wait?
A competing hospital in my town announced they have until September 30th to get the vaccine or get the ax - my hospital hasn't mandated the vaccine - yet - but I'm preparing for my next move on this chessboard of life. Also - if social media hasn't suppressed the conversation on alterative medications to treat COVID-19, would it have saved thousands, maybe millions, of people? Be careful who you open the door to - it could be the government pushing "vaccine education" on you. Biden's response to higher gas prices? Raise taxes on oil companies - yep, that will fix it. (Spoiler alert: it will make it worse). Mentioned in podcast: Internet Erupts After Biden, Psaki Push ‘Door-To-Door’ Plan Targeting Unvaccinated People Animals at Wisconsin zoos to receive COVID vaccine Number of Deaths Reported After COVID Vaccines Jumps by More Than 2,000 in 1 Week, According to VAERS Oregon may use National Guard for door-to-door COVID questions Parson: Feds not welcomed in Missouri for door-to-door vaccination campaign Grocers Stockpile to Hedge Against Inflation Biden responds to skyrocketing gas prices by vowing to raise taxes on oil companies Vaccine mania led to all-out suppression of COVID treatments Intermission music: Safe In Your Arms by Mixaund | Music promoted by

A Tweet From Our CEO: If You Don't Have Medical Credentials, Then Stop Asking Questions and Shut Up
The CEO at the hospital where I work actually tweeted to shut up - not exactly CEO behavior, not to mention, don't tell me to shut up when I have legitimate questions about what you're trying to inject into my body. Have you read the White Papers on the American Frontline Doctors' website? Highly recommend. Christmas is six months away but you might want to shop early - there may be a shortage of things to buy. Democrats are worried Kamala Harris can't win 2024 - you're right. Have you been exposed to "right-wing" extremism? Don't worry! Facebook is here to save you from yourself! Mentioned in podcast: Biden tweets about saving 16 cents, gets ridiculed online American Frontline Doctors White Paper on Experimental Vaccine for COVID-19 'It's too late to save Christmas': Retailers brace for unprecedented shortages of everything ‘Proud Transgender Woman of Color’ Wins Miss Nevada USA Pageant City of Pella allows biological minor teenaged female to go topless at pool, use men’s facilities Dems are paranoid Harris can't win 2024 Social media giant unleashes accusations of extremism Intermission music: Gaining Momentum by Ron Gelinas Chillout Lounge | Music promoted by Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License

Will Juneteenth Replace 4th of July? Is That the Goal?
The Delta (Indian) COVID variant is running loose in Missouri. Hospital admissions are on the rise - do we ride it out or hide from it - again? Whistleblowers from inside the CDC claim that 50,000 people have died from the experimental injectable - can we believe that? Who knows what to believe at this stage. Biden claims if you want to take on the federal government you need "F-15's and Nukes" - pretty sure you just made an argument FOR the 2nd amendment, sir. Also, my back hurts. Mentioned in podcast: Unvaccinated Missourians fuel COVID: ‘We will be the canary’ Almost A Third Of British People Dying With COVID-19 ‘Delta’ Variant Are Fully Vaccinated Videos demonstrate Democrats' intolerance of dissent Mark my words: Juneteenth will replace July 4th Report: 61% of U.S. counties now 2nd Amendment sanctuaries Behind the vaccine veil: Doctor cites ‘whistleblowers’ inside CDC who claim injections have already killed 50,000 Americans Researchers find ‘tree inequity’ for people of color, poor neighborhoods Biden Says Americans Need F-15s And Nukes To Take On Federal Government Intermission music: Untitled Song Thing by PYC Music | Music promoted by Attribution-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported (CC BY-ND 3.0)

*Sniff* Is that COVID I Smell On You? Technology That Can Smell Whether You Have COVID or Not
You smell funny. Is that a new perfume or is it COVID? Group of parents sent their children's masks in to be analyzed - guess what they found? Canada's "top doctor" recommends wearing a mask during sexual activity, (I'm not making this up). Biden is dumping illegal-alien youth across the nature and Obama's White House doctor is recommending Biden take a cognitive test. Thanks for listening!

I forgot to talk more about the invisible piece of art, but I swear, this was not a joke, see the show notes below for more details. AOC makes a some (more) stupid comments this week and it's all I can not to insult her, screw it, she's stupid.

Teaching First Graders Sexual Gratification. Why Are We Allowing This Madness to Continue?
There is a lot to cover today. It seems like the world continues to get more "woke" and crazy every day. I guess my biggest question is - we all know this stuff being forced down our throats is crazy, WHY are we allowing it to happen? Are we afraid to speak up? If you don't speak up, does this mean you agree with these agendas? It's something to ponder. Do you think the experimental injectable contains a microchip? Why are magnets sticking to COVID injection sites? Book review is science fiction this week: The Solar War by A.G. Riddle. Take a moment to remember our brave men/women who have served our country this weekend!

Happy Birthing Person Day! The Left's Plan to Erase Women
Where are all the feminists? I don't understand how the left can try and redefine the role of women and yet, the feminists are quiet. Why?? Racism is spreading like a cancer and it's not just whites that are in the crossfires. Biden is increasing the deficit - inflation is inevitable. And as if we're not segregated enough, now the left wants to segregate the vaccinated from the non-vaccinated - yeah, that will go a long way to unifying people. The book review this week is "In the Dark" by Loreth Anne White and screw it - I'm wishing all biological women Happy Mother's Day! Dem congresswoman erases women, testifies about 'Black birthing people' Washington State governor orders churches, sporting events to implement 'vaccinated sections' CDC: As many people have died from Covid-19 vaccines as ALL vaccines in last 20 years COMBINED Biden's spending spree 7 times more expensive than Roosevelt's New Deal New reports show China was preparing coronaviruses for WW3 TikTok User Fires Back at Alyssa Milano Video of woman stopped by Latino cop telling him "he'll never be white" Write From Karen Blog Write From Karen Patreon Intermission music: Moonlight pt.2 by Roa Music | Music promoted by Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License

Majority of U.S. Companies Will Mandate Vaccines - Not Without a Fight!
I'm afraid I focus far too much time on COVID and how it has, and will personally, affect me but it's a topic that has consumed my life and will likely drastically change it. What will you do if your employer requires you to provide proof that you've taken the experimental injectable? What happened to "my body, my choice?" Book review this week is "The Arrangement" and it's a situation nearly all married couples have thought about but would never act upon. It's twisted and dark. Also, I'm starting a writing challenge!

Sunlight Eight Times More Effective in Shrinking COVID - Time to Toss Mask, Get Fresh Air and Sunshine
Did you hear Jill and Joe address the nation on Easter? You have a "moral obligation" to get the vaccine. They didn't say anything about Jesus. How disrespectful. BLM coordinator buys a 1.4 million dollar house with the donations made to the organization. Where is the outrage? One in three people are diagnosed with psychiatric issues after COVID - or more likely, from being locked down for over a year. Book review this week is "An Unfinished Story" by Boo Walker and I share a little bit about me, the person behind the microphone.

Vaccine Passports: Is the Government Blackmailing Us?
I don't know, you tell me. It sure feels that way. How else do you interpret, "We have a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to vaccination status. Because otherwise, if everything is reopened, then what's the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people to actually get the vaccine? We need to make it clear to them that the vaccine is the ticket back to pre-pandemic life." Guess what? The sun IS good for something - like shrinking the COVID-19 vaccine. I feel like that's common sense? Book review of the week: "The Last of the Moon Girls" by Barbara Davis. An update on our cargo trailer and my Patreon is open! Come join us!

Are We Living in a Permanent Pandemic?
So are we? Living in a permanent pandemic? What does your gut tell you? I think the government is going to try its hardest to inject at much fear, as often as it can, for as long as it can. The question is, will we be warriors or sheeple? Have you been paying attention to the situation at the border? It's disgusting that we've served those poor people to human traffickers. Also, Biden's mental capacity seems to be getting worse. I think it's elder abuse! Book review this week is Andrew Mayne's "Looking Glass." And my Patreon is open! Come join us!

In other words, you may go but you may not have fun! Question: would you stay home if the government paid you more than you could make at your job?

Also - why are people so gung-ho to line up, stick out an arm and get jabbed with an experimental injectable? It's not a vaccine, it's something the government is using to give people false hope.

Also, did you know there are gender-bending chemicals that make men more feminine and females more aggressive? Do you think that's contributing to all of this gender dysphoria and confusion? Hhmm....

I don't know about you but I'm tired of living in historic times. Novel virus, insane lockdowns, "peaceful" riots and a president who is impeached and acquitted - twice.

Where Do You Fall on the Oppression Matrix? Marxism For Everyone!
Antiracism comes to the heartland - Marxism is knocking on our back doors and our teachers are being forced to find where they are on the "oppression matrix." Our world has gone truly mad. Also, why is everyone so obsessed with skin color? What happened to the content of our character? This obsession will not promote unity. This week's book review is "Trust No One" by Debra Webb. (Which perfectly describes our political environment right now). As always, I end the podcast with some story ideas, along with a prompt for romance, horror and mystery.  Mentioned in podcast: “Antiracism” Comes to the Heartland Trump Opens Up His DC Hotel For Men and Women In Uniform COVID narrative shifts with Biden's inauguration Chelsea Handler Goes Topless To Celebrate Joe Biden Officially Becoming President Biden’s 17 Executive Orders and Other Directives in Detail Joe Biden ditches mask at Lincoln Memorial — hours after mandating them Book Review on Write From Karen Intermission Music: Warrior by yoitrax | Music promoted by Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License

Trump is Banned from Twitter - Resorts to Smoke Signals
Censorship is a cancer that seems to be spreading every day. I still can't believe it's happening and we're either unaware of it, and/or are too afraid to stop it. I spend a considerable amount of time trying to wrap my head around this issue. This week's book review is "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes and it's been around for quite some time - I had no idea. I only have a few story ideas for you this week, but they're good ones.  Mentioned in podcast: PBS lawyer suggested sending children of Trump voters to 'reeducation camps' where 'they watch PBS all day' GAB Backed Up Trump's Twitter Account And Restored ALL His Tweets To Its Service ABC News calls for 'cleansing the movement' of Trump supporters following Capitol riots Publisher Cancels Senators Josh Hawley's anti-censorship book (how ironic!)
