My uncle has covid. Checked himself into the hospital today. I don't know if he's vaccinated. Hope he is because he does have some underlying conditions from all his years of heavy drinking. Not a sad post because I always figured his time was severely shortened already.

And so, Sterns joined with CNN in attacking Rogan (and others) as he insisted, “We have no time for idiots in this country anymore,” Stern said. “We don’t want you. We want you to all either go the hospital, and stay home, die there with your COVID. Don’t take the cure, but don’t clog up our hospitals with your COVID when you finally get it. Stay home, don’t bother with science, it’s too late. Go F— yourself, we just don’t have time for you.”

Joe doesn't think it's a hoax though

I love Stern. He says what he thinks, and doesn't follow any particular "side" which angers so many people. He's voted for tons of people on both sides. He doesn't fit anyone's agenda.

The part that gets left off when he gets quoted in the press is that he's just a guy with an opinion. He's not elected to anything, he's just a radio guy giving an opinion, if you don't like it, change the channel.

He's a throwback to a time before we automatically placed everyone in a red or a blue column, and that freaks people out.

He still does the funniest prank phone calls I've ever heard.

Not explicitly, but he is a f***ing moron. He basically said don't take it if you work out. Then the imbecile got COVID, took every treatment under the sun to combat it, and only thing he had to say sorry for was moving his show. The treatments he received regular people can't get until they're deciding to be put on a ventilator or not. Had he taken the vaccine he wouldn't have needed to get treatment most people cannot. Just like how elected officials get, like the orange a******.

“Are you healthy?” Rogan said. “Are you a healthy person? Like, look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself. You should — if you’re a healthy person, and you’re exercising all the time, and you’re young, and you’re eating well, like, I don’t think you need to worry about this,” he said on the show. He added, “I’m not an anti-vax person. I said I believe they’re safe and I encourage many people to take them. My parents were vaccinated. I just said that if you’re a young, healthy person that you don’t need it.”

“I GOT COVID. My apologies, but we have to move the Nashville show to Sunday, October 24. Much love to you all,” he wrote alongside a video of himself explaining his situation.

In the clip, Rogan said felt “very weary,” adding, “I had a headache, and I just felt just run down” after several tour dates in Florida.

He added that he was quarantined from the rest of his family and took a COVID test that came back positive. Following the result, he “threw the kitchen sink at it, all kinds of meds.”

The medicine Rogan said he took was “monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything. I also got an NAD drip and a vitamin drip and I did that three days in a row. Here we are on Wednesday, and I feel great.”

Well, to be fair, Rogan's treatment was a complete success right? Can we call him an idiot if it all worked with minimal illness? He didn't need a ventilator right?

I'm not sure if he required a private nurse or something to setup the medicine drips or if he used a clinic or hospital. Or his drug buddies know how to hookup IVs lmao.

Fair point though on his access to some drugs. It's hard to say which of them did the most benefit, but monoclonal anti-bodies early probably did a lot. I'm not sure what the current situation is with access to that.

Things like Prednisone, NAD Drip, or Vitamin Drip, or yes even Ivermectin don't seem super exotic or expensive though.

Otherwise, there is Rogan's basic lifestyle which is what is really out of reach for most people and he seems weirdly naive about this all the time. Being independently wealthy being able to make your own schedule gives you enormous opportunity to pursue health goals and workout hard.

I partly take this as a commentary on how s***ty the lifestyle is of the typical American worker, often being overworked taking a toll on fitness and diet. Strangely, I'd say the Covid Pandemic created a lot of work from home situations which probably would allow less sitting in traffic, healthier eating at home, getting up from the desk to stretch, but corporations can't stand this and want to drag people back to the office.

IV drips will not be covered by any insurance regular people have. An IV drip at a local facility is $500 to start.

Monoclonal antibodies are what probably saved him. That's $2000 a pop and NOT covered by insurance unless being intubated and it being touch and go. So, you want it, you pay out of pocket. And that's what probably kept him off a ventilator because they threw everything at him so there was obvious concern, which he WILL NOT, ever, admit.

I agree that people need to be healthier overall. I will say, since I got the dog, I'm trying to figure out how to get in workouts. It will be very tough for the next month or so. I can't imagine how it is with kids. It would be impossible unless you're relatively well off and can get care for the time you want to go to the gym or get a workout in. When I was at my gym it was $30 a session for in gym daycare. That's $90 per week if you workout three times and $360 a month. This is just for starters.

Yes, he's naive, and yes he knows his audience, and yes he's grifting the f*** out of them.

Well, I guess it's partly on Joe, but mostly on how stupid American Healthcare is.

Also, I think it's widely understood that Monoclonal Anti-bodies help a lot as early treatment, not later on when you're fvcked.

I'm trying to my health fitness situation to. I move trailers on a warehouse site so I'm not road driving anymore; lost 20 pounds just from this alone. I'm setting up a space in my apartment for VR and Kettlebell.

He is an idiot for what he is promoting. Chances are if he did nothing he would have been ok too but that doesn't mean doing nothing is what everyone should do either.

With the speed Rogan jumped to take everything under the sun to stop his covid, it wouldn't surprise me if he's vaccinated and that also is why he recovered so fast. He's been hanging out with grifters for so long he's probably become one.


As an aside about Ivermectin. It did kill covid in a petri dish, however it was with a dose toxic to humans. This is where the kernel of truth comes in. Oxford and others are doing clinical trials right now so we'll see if they find a dosage that works and is safe but its not likely.


And Hydroxychloroquine. So if covid developed in the kidneys hydroxy could potentially stop it, however, there is only one entry point in the kidneys. In the lungs where covid develops there are 2 points for covid to infect. Hydrox can only block one so covid still gets through.


Things I've learned from virologist podcasts.

They are so brainwashed that they don't even know that they are killing themselves.

Trump apparently is one of those fungus that infect bugs into doing what they want and even killing themselves for the fungus.
