The Chinese workers that came over to work on the railroad were for all intents and purposes indentured servants and were given a temporary residence in the US. Too many of them weren't going home after their contracts were up. Sound familar? 50% of all illegal immigrants in the US were green card holders that dropped off the radar after their green cards expired. Gee...why would we ban the Chinese? It's not because of race, it's because China was taking advantage of our immigration laws.

The value in this is quite simple. Look at the facts . And , if it turns out that the plague was manufactured in a laboratory in the Wuhan Provence of China, then hold them accountable. Trump did, and we will.contiue to hold the Chinese authorities that let loose this cjina plague on the world, causing several thousand deaths, accountable. Put the blame where the blame needs to go, so we learn the lessons about who we can trust. China is not one we can trust.

Listening to a Bubonic Plague story. 🐀❤️ Theo & I really liked that not only did you talk about how cool/athletic/smart rats are, but you also clarified that all the plague spreading was really because of the flees. Theo says the only thing he spreads is love and good vibes.

Unless there's a world wide conspiracy to cover up deaths (though we know for certain many deaths were attributed to covid because they had covid among other things), the survival rate does rather dictate that covid has been blown way out of proportion. That doesn't mean it's nothing, but at this point there are quite a few other things we've been wrestling with since the dawn of civilization that are more likely to kill you. Btw, Trump was reassuring the people just like most world leaders did, but for some reason (gee, I wonder why...) it's only wrong when Trump does it. He, nor anyone else except those working closest with it, could know how bad it would or wouldn't be.

Not to be racist buuut (that's never a good way to start a sentence)... What's the deal with southern China and pandemics anyway? I get that there's a lot of people who live in squalor and also eat anything that moves, but I still get the feeling there's just something about the region and climate that breeds novel human-hating disease.

In 1906, carried by rats and their fleas, the bubonic plague came from China to San Francisco. With powerful political and business foes fighting at every turn, a series of brave people tried and failed to institute necessary health measures. Finally a Dr. Blue, thought to be a good old boy from the south, stepped in- and to the chagrin of the elites- did what had to be done. He killed the rats, cleaned up the streets, and finally stopped a plague that could have devastated the whole of the United States as it once killed half of Europe. If Dr. Blue could kill the rats and stop the plague, surely we can... I don't know... Wear masks? Caitlin- I don't know if you know this, but the above paragraph, Your idea, is probably the best case of guerrilla education (realpolitik) I have ever seen. You are way smarter than you present. I also think you might be hyperactive, since the depth and layering of your videos is decptively difficult, requiring a rainbow of knowledge and skills. Not to mention the total output. I mean, when do you sleep? Peace

Dear Caitlin (as in "Dear Abby") "the China plague" (interjected along with a 1.5 sec vid of Ex- President Trump, and repeated 2-3 times). Well now, Mortician (even though I still plan to have my ashes interred in your yard), please let me ask you, and other women, a question that continues to evade my understanding: Why is it that so many American women seem to have automatically expressed such distain for Donald Trump, even though knowing next to nothing about the man until he declared himself a candidate for the 2016 presidential nomination? In the years following Mr. Trump's election, both the employment percentage and earnings of women and minorities in this country reached an all-time high. There was also a higher percentage of women appointed to positions in the Trump administration than any other in the history of our republic. Why did you vote him out of office?

America has a long tradition of amplifying and overreacting. And the media certainly is guilty of playing up any threat. Did Spain really attack the US? Maybe this statement is true but the media could not be trusted then in 1898, as most seem to agree, so why would we trust them in 1900 or 2020? The Spanish-American War (Spanish: Guerra hispano-estadounidense or Guerra hispano-americana; Filipino: Digmaang Espanyol-Amerikano) was an armed conflict between Spain and the United States in 1898. Hostilities began in the aftermath of the internal explosion of USS Maine in Havana Harbor in Cuba, leading to U.S. intervention in the Cuban War of Independence. The war led to the U.S. emerging predominant in the Caribbean region,[15] and resulted in U.S. acquisition of Spain's Pacific possessions. That led to U.S. involvement in the Philippine Revolution and ultimately to the Philippine-American War

"There's probably a rat near you right now" Hmmm. **looks around** I dunno. I live on the third floor of an apartment complex, in a clean Finnish neighborhood, in the middle of winter. Now I'm actually curious where the nearest rat to me is! There's definitely a lot of nature around, but I've never seen a rat outside, let alone inside - I don't even get spiders or bugs in this apartment, so if a rat is hiding under something, then he hella sneaky.

COVID originally spread to a human because a animal researcher f*cked a ape in the early 1900s,but the outbreak did start in china because there are big markets with food,leather, fur and other animal(parts), these places are never truly sanatary and infections and viruses can travel from one to the next extremely easily,in these markets you can buy parts of dogs, cats, spiders and you guessed it,bats. A lot of people (especially older people) don't know much about bacteria and crosscontamination (not washing their hands,knives, cutting boards where a lot of blood and bacteria sits), that's where covid came from Edit: covid is originally a animal sickness that didn't spread to humans before,but by having sex with a ape or by eating a infected animal it can spread to humans

As others probably pointed out here, Rat isn't a bad sign. Rats come first in the Chinese zodiac. It's a long story, but Buddha arranged a race of all the animals to see who would be first in this system, and Rat won by a nose: Rat was clever enough to hitch a rode with Ox, and climbed onto his snout at the end of the race, so technically he finished first by having his whole body over the finish line before Ox. Rat people are clever, quit witted, sociable, persuasive, and talkative. On the downside, they can also be meddlesome know-it-alls that some might mistake as terrible gossips, but truly Rats are just great informants that almost never pass along "fake news" without good reason.

This was my favorite! I lived in San Francisco for 20 years up above Chinatown. One day I was riding through the tenderloin. Some one threw a radio out of the window at the bus and the woman next to me said “ how Medieval “. I thought that was funny and ironic. I would have really laughed my ass off if I’d known about this.

Amazing to see the denialism, was alive and well then too. I thought it was really bad this past year and perhaps people back then had a little more sense. Due to how San Fran. handled the 1918 flu pandemic's second wave, which was better than this plague outbreak. They locked down before it got to them really bad in 1918 and were more proactive by then. This was very interesting and I now get precisely why, they in particular, took pathogens more seriously by 1918. History repeats itself in 2020-2021. People just don't get it, but thank goodness for the scientifically literate in infectious disease, who do take it seriously. Like you Caitlin, bravo with that ending.

The gut of the flea becomes blocked by the bacteria of the plague, causing it to vomit contaminated blood onto the bite of the victim thusly spreading the plague. It’s not the flea bite alone but the contaminated vomit getting into the wound that causes the infection. Also there are other forms of the plague apart from bubonic which had the highest rate of survival, there was pneumonic then last septicemic plague with the highest death rate.
