Todd

I thank my dear friends and distant cousin Ron and Barb Ike with sharing this.

Todd was a regular lowly citizen stating his case before the Alpena (MI) school board. Likely such things as mask and/or vaxx mandates were at issue. Todd came armed with the facts. They’re worth sharing.

To: The Alpena Public Board of Education

From: Mr. Todd Britton

The mask issue, like the vaccine, is really very simple.  If you believe in either or both, then go ahead and use a mask and/or get the shot.  If you don’t, don’t.  There is absolutely no problem with this until other people start making those decisions for you.  Can you imagine the outrage if there was a contingent that was running around trying to stop people from having the ability to choose a mask or vaccine? 

If masks and the vaccines really work, those that partake should be protected and in a logical argument have no standing.  If they don’t work, then it really does not matter what we do.  I have studied masks extensively as I am still in the middle of contesting a couple of MIOSHA citations.  Masks absolutely do not work unless you believe some recently manufactured “science” that only minimally supports that they may some insignificant benefit.  ALL of the previous studies and random controlled trials showed either no or statistically insignificant benefit in using them.

To keep things in perspective:

  1. The virus has an infection survival rate of approximately 99.78% across all ages.
  2. The average death age of Covid fatalities is at or higher than the average death age of the general population.
  3. 94% of the fatalities had 4 or more comorbidities, so only 6% of the reported deaths are actually from Covid only (per the CDC). 
  4. Based on the reported number of fatalities in the US to date (690,152) times the actual percentage of deaths from (.06) works out to 41,409 total deaths from Covid from March 2020 until today – 19 months.  In the last 10 years, the seasonal flue has killed between 12,000 and 61,000 in 12 months.  For comparison, around
  5. 78% of the fatalities were obese (CDC).
  6. The vast majority transmission of the virus is aerosolized particles, not droplets.
  7. An N-95 mask is not capable of filtering particles smaller than 5 microns and 99.9%+ of the aerosolized virus particles are smaller than that. 
  8. In less than 1 minute of wearing a surgical mask the CO2 and O levels behind the mask are at levels that are not considered habitable for confined space work.
  9. A child’s developing brain is particularly susceptible oxygen deficiency and elevated levels of CO2
  10. During the 1918-19 Spanish Flu epidemic, more than half of the fatalities died of bacterial pneumonia rather than the virus.  The pneumonia was most likely caused by the masks and these people would have likely survived without them. (per a paper by Dr. Fauci)
  11. Wearing a mask decreases the strength of your immune system right when we need it most.

We both know that the masks don’t and can’t work.  The science is there to prove it and the math is there to prove that the virus particle, even when aerosolized is way to small to be stopped by even by the tightest weave of an N-95.  The analogy of a chain link fence trying to keep out mosquitoes is fitting.  Occasionally a mosquito might get stuck to the fence.

Using the CDC as a source for any guidelines is just plain madness.  If anyone looks into where the CDC gets its money, they will find EVERY large pharmaceutical company, medical device manufactures, defense contractors, etc.  They cannot be impartial, nor should we expect that they are actually looking out for our best interest.  As with most, they actually look out for their own, which is not us.  We also, need to look out for our own.

To reiterate part of the email.  If one uses logic with both masks and the vaccine, if they work, those that choose them should be protected and from their perspective, this problem should solve itself through natural selection.  Personally, I do not believe that will be the case and I choose my own immune system.  Vaccines were only invented 225 years ago, yet humans have survived somewhere between 200,000 and 7 million years (depending on how you classify humans) without them.

This issue is really about the health of kids and the freedom of choice.  How have we arrived here?

Thank you.

I retired from the Rheumatology division of Michigan Medicine end of June '19 after 36 years there. Upon hitting Ann Arbor for the second time (I went to school here) it took me almost 8 months to meet Kathy, 17 months to buy her a house (on Harbal, where we still live), and 37 months to marry her. Kids never came, but we've been blessed with a crowd of colleagues, friends, neighbors and family that continues to grow. Lots of them are going to show up in this log eventually. Stay tuned.
