What changed?


MARQUETTE — Longtime WLUC-TV6 weatherman Karl Bohnak has announced his departure from the station.

Bohnak announced the move in a Facebook post Wednesday after more than 33 years of employment with the station.

“I am leaving TV6 because the station’s corporate owner, Gray Television, has mandated vaccination against COVID-19 for anyone entering a property owned by the company,” Bohnak stated in the Facebook post. “Since I chose not to take one of the shots, I was fired. Many of you have taken one of these injections, and that is absolutely your right. It is also my right to choose the medical options I feel are right for me. I have authority over my body.

At the start of this Covid event, companies bent over backwards to find ways to allow people to work from home.

In some cases, they found out people were more productive. In other cases the employees where were not productive became glaringly obvious.

Something changed.

Now you know the rest of the story...

One school of thought is that peer reviewed science takes time. Papers will start hitting scientific journals in December/January and their conclusions might not be that comforting.

Sure, some of the papers can be smothered. But they cannot stop papers from being published in India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Russia.

It will only take a whiff of cytokine storms* or sterility or impotence or increased dementia risk to make the vaccine a hard-stop for most people.

It seems likely that the Executive Branch is watching the research and has advance notice of which way the wind is blowing.

...and a treat for those of us who wear tin-foil headgear...

There was a despot who was extremely paranoid. For the sake of yuks, let's say his name is "Saddam"

Saddam was sad because he liked good food but he had a hard time hiring chefs. It was probably because after a week or two Saddam would assume that his chef was about to poison him and have his chef executed.

As you can imagine, Sad's fears were not totally unfounded. There were many people who wanted to see Sad dead. Nevertheless, it made recruiting chefs a challenge.

One day, a country bumpkin volunteered to be Saddam's chef. The bumpkin could cook like a dream and Sad was no longer sad.

On schedule, Sad had the chef called before him. "I am sure you are going to poison me. Do you have any last words before I have you shot?" You see, Sad was a sadist and loved seeing people squirm in abject fear.

The bumpkin stood with a total lack of fear.  "You are almost right, sir. I poisoned you with an exotic poison in the very first meal and have been feeding you the antidote ever since."

At last, Saddam found a chef he could relate to and trust. The chef was not executed.

Hat-tip to CoyoteKen for the story about the weatherman.

*Back in the 1980s there was a lot of interest in beefing up vaccines with "adjuvants" that were known to enhance immune responses. One such adjuvant is Levamisole. Interestingly, it is an antihelmetic (worming medicine) like ivermectin.

Human trials were halted very quickly when a very large percentage (like 40%) of healthy volunteers experienced cytokine storms. If memory serves, there were even fatalities involved.

Our immune systems are (usually) finely tuned and in-balance. The challenge needed to prepare an immune system in an older person is different than the challenge needed to optimally prepare the immune system in a younger person.

Said another way, there is a risk that a vaccine hyper-optimized for "the most at risk" will kill healthy young people.



    1. Not that I am TRYING to be difficult, but does that mean you support employers firing employees who do not terminate a pregnancy or fire employees who DO terminate a pregnancy?

      This establishes a precedent for employers intruding on medical procedure decisions that were historically personal choices.

    2. Don't know. I saw it on my Facebook with no context. It is from the N.Y. Post but even that doesn't explain what the cartoonist wanted to say. Maybe, intentionally ambiguous?

  2. One of many that are choosing that option!

    1. I still want to know when the ambulance chasing lawyers show up to start suing.

  3. I stopped at a business that runs ads on TV6 today to pick up a tire and told them that any business that continues to advertise on TV6 will not be on my preferred list of stores and I have talked to several friends that feel the same. --ken

  4. The insane push to force EVERYONE not be vaccinated is simple. They MUST accomplish this in order to remove the "control group" of unvaccinated before all the nasty side effects start manifesting in such numbers the can't be denied. With no control group of healthy unaffected people for comparison they can simply lie and blame all the issues on anything they wish. Thus the desperation to force this poison on everyone ASAP.

  5. My Yooper brother is a friend of Mr. Bohnak. He's written a couple of books about Michigan extreme weather events of which I have autographed copies. Really nice guy.

  6. "It will only take a whiff of cytokine storms* or sterility or impotence or increased dementia risk to make the vaccine a hard-stop for most people."

    I picked up that smell a while back, and I am and shall remain unvaxxed. Mrs. Freeholder had her two does of the Pfizer vaccine in Feb/March. In the last month or so, she has developed mysterious headaches and light sensitivity. Saw her doc today. They're running some blood tests. I really hope she hasn't "chose poorly".
