One of my past bosses, a full-bull colonel, had a needlepoint hanging on his office wall.  Small and tastefully done, framed and in a prominent location, it simply said "Never Let The Bureaucrat Win".

I took that message to heart, and I used it to guide my professional life.

Bureaucrats tend to be self-serving.  While they may be pleasant and personable, they also tend to believe their own hype.   It appears to me that Dr. Anthony Fauci, MD, has long ago fallen into the trap.  Say what you will about Doc Fauci; while he may be a credentialed giant in virus medicine, he is also a bureaucrat who believes his own hype. 

For example, several months ago, when asked abut herd immunity, he kept changing the numbers.  I can understand that science changes, evolves  over time, but in a later interviews, he plainly sated that he was fudging the numbers.

"When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent," Fauci said. "Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, 'I can nudge this up a bit,' so I went to 80, 85."

That isn't science, that is bureaucratic bullshit. 

This past weekend, in another interview, he plainly said that if someone is criticized him, then they are criticizing science.  That is not science.  That is ego talking.  

It's time for Anthony Fauci, MD to go away.  His mountain-sized ego is making a mockery of the very science he presumes to represent. His admission that he "fudges" numbers calls into question his dedication to true science.  Science is what it is, not what Fauci would like it to be.

It's also time for gibbering cocknobbets like you that know jack all about this to shut up.

Well. "Cocknobbit" I think I had that once with a Brit breakfast along with blood sausage and a dollup of mash.

Truely Fauci is a back office BS artist and hasn't figured out that now, everything is recorded so he can't just spin lies without getting caught. By the way, "herd immunity" is for semi-isolated populations. It went away for humans with the coming of Interstate highways and air travel. One visit from Mah and Pah Kettle and herd immunity is out the window. That was a stupid place to get caught. Maybe, back when he was getting educated, it still was a thing.

His blather on masks is right up there. Masks without the associated sanitary protocols is a waste of effort. Wash your paws before you touch your food or face. Avoid crowds and public transportation. Don't bring the great unwashed world into an area for vulnerable people on your shoes or outer clothing. Comorbidities, untreated medical conditions, can kill. "Treat'em if you got'em". Such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar (Type-II Diabetes), obesity, etc. Immune suppression from medications for cancer, Rheumatoid, transplants, implants, etc. is another problem area. In Chicago (2020, as I recall), 95+% of the COVID deaths involved one or more comorbidities. I have age going against me. I asked my doc for a script for a cute, intelligent "therapeutic" red head with a good sense of humor. He snorted. My insurance doesn't cover such therapy. Talk with your physician. You are on your own for the "special" therapy.
