I think that is the right tone Mark. I am an ortho spine and I have asked people to remove masks in my office for a year. It is a challenge because at the entrance of the building it states they need to have one on. Most are grateful, some are so committed as to almost have to pry the masks from their cold dead fingers. Some, although only a minuscule number, ask me to wear one during the appointment. I have politely declined. Most have stayed but some never came back. Good riddance.

My position is similar to yours. This shit ends, with prejudice. WE are the solution we have been waiting for. Bravo to you.

Time to convert frustration and despair into anger, and anger into action. And that action would be righteous.

Bravo! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻Now if we could get medical offices to remove a mask requirement for patients, I’d be thrilled & have much more respect for them.

As would I...

I have not seen a doctor throughout this mess except when I cut a thumb on a broken glass measuring cup and I was unable to stop the bleeding. The laceration was the worst I ever had in my life. I ended up in the ER with an ER doctor who was about 4 feet tall and 8 months pregnant. I was forced to wear a mask as well. I needed the stitches bad so put the damn thing on but ripped it off the second my last stitch was in. I have chronic Lyme and don't seem any worse for not seeing a doctor for anything but that stitch. I feel like I am slowly dying but I'm ready whenever the Lord takes me home. I take care of myself the best I can with what I know. A fall down a flight of stairs didn't get me to go to the ER though. I heard a man's voice as I hit the floor who said "Be Still". I immediately knew who that had to be and did as I was instructed. It took a year and a half to completely recover, but I am no worse off now than before my fall. My primary won't give me an RX for my sleep apnea unless I come into her office with a mask on. I refused to do that. So far, God has chosen to keep me alive anyway. I think when I am asleep I am actually unconscious, but I don't stress about it. I just trust God to do the right thing for me. Everything that needs to happen before Jesus comes for us has happened. So Christians need to try to get everyone around them saved if they aren't already because I believe He is coming soon! Going to order a copy of your book for each of my daughters. They think I'm nuts.

I wish I could "like" this a million times. I especially appreciated the last paragraph. I have been saying masking children is child abuse from the start and only stopped short of saying to to complete strangers, although I have thanked parents who are not doing it! They were appreciative as they saw my smiling God-given face. I'll be sharing this one far and wide. I'd love to send it to my new PCP, but as it's been difficult to find one I can actually work with, I don't want to burn that bridge right away. 🙄

A new medical system needs to be built over the ruins of the current one.

Agree completely. What do we do with all those stuck in a delusional psychosis?

Apropos of Mark’s post, watch this. Just have some tissues handy. Going to need them.

Absolutely right John. This gentleman sums up a book’s worth of analysis into a 2 minute talk.

I absolutely understood the trust of your comment John. My comments was about how incredibly succinct and complete the message was conveyed by the gentleman in the video.

Dr. McDonald. I cannot thank you enough for standing up so valiantly to stop the use of masks to mitigate a virus that is not lethal for most Americans and children. I met you in June of 2022 in Columbus via an Ohio Stands Up Function and your talk was profound and so full of truth. I'm attempting to write a book on how much trauma it brought about it my life. I developed PTSD as a result of seeing people wear masks out in the public day in and day out throughout the past 3 years. I can't get over how many people don't use the brain that God gave them. I want to continue to follow you and support you in any way I can. Please don't stop speaking out with the truth. We need individuals to stay the course and speak truth. Thank you again for being such a warrior.

I'll be publishing another article on this in a couple of days--they're coming back!

I hope and pray that you’re wrong (in this instance). If it does happen again, I’ll be even more involved in fighting against it. It has to STOP.

Yes, the irony...all those people who were (and are) "staying safe" by covering their faces with diapers are now on the receiving end of toxicity.

Thank you for supporting my work. I'm finding the themes of my book to be more and more well-received, as the previously uninformed believers in the lies are starting to question whether they have been lied to for the past two years.

That physician is not practicing ethically or with the well-being of his patients in mind. He is also uninformed, naive, and arrogant.

I am personally offended and embarrassed by morons like the doctor you encountered. I would encourage to post negative reviews, complaints to the Board of incompetent care and medical knowledge. Patients need to do what ever is within reasonable means to punish dipshits like this.
