Super Bowl gatherings indoors? L.A. County Health Department’s ‘brilliant’ plan to ban TV from outdoor dining

Los Angeles County’s outdoor dining reopened Friday, but the Health Department is banning restaurants from turning on their televisions. It appears this may be some sort of plan to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 during the upcoming Super Bowl gatherings on Sunday, February 7.

What a joke! If you think about it, this move by the L.A. County’s Department of Health is actually going to send people indoors to watch the great American pass time with family and friends at home. I’m not a virologist, but I’m guessing being at home in more enclosed spaces with others presents a higher risk of contracting coronavirus than sitting outside at a restaurant with eight feet between tables.

In fact, under the new county rules, the outdoor dining and wine service seating must be limited to 50% capacity. Tables must be positioned at least eight feet apart, although there is no explanation as to why eight feet, rather than six feet.

Moreover, the outdoor seating will be limited to six people per table. Just in case you thought you can go with anyone you like, think again. It appears that somehow the restaurant owners will have to ensure that the people at the table are from the same household, according to the new Health Department mandates.

Bill Melugin, with Fox News LA, tweeted “outdoor dining has reopened in L.A. County as of today, but now the Health Department is banning restaurants from having their TVs turned on for customers.”

“It’s obvious the Health Department wants to stop people from watching the Super Bowl outdoors at sports bars/restaurants, so now they are going to force people to watch it indoors at private home gatherings by taking the outdoor option away. Absolutely brilliant.” he tweeted.

Melugin was right in pointing out that turning off the televisions won’t stop the spread of the virus. But sending people underground, sort-of-speak, to watch the Super Bowl could lead to other issues, like the government asking neighbors to turn in neighbors.

Remember that’s what we’ve been seeing in the United States, Canada and other parts of the world. Maybe California Governor Gavin Newsom will do what Oregon Governor Brown did during Thanksgiving last year when she encouraged neighbors to turn in neighbors that violated her state’s COVID-19 mandates, which included limiting the number of people that could be invited into a citizens home.

It does seem unbelievable, un-American and frankly, sets a communist precedence but that appears to be the direction we’re heading as a nation. It’s a brave new world folks and 2021 is just getting started.

Nebraska woman who detransitioned sues doctors who facilitated removal of ‘healthy breasts’ when she was a teen battling mental health

Nebraska woman Luka Hein is suing Nebraska Medicine, the Nebraska Medical Center, and University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Physicians who facilitated in her gender transition when she was a teenager; Hein has since detransitioned.

Hein, who is being represented by the Center for American Liberty, filed the suit last week, for removal of her healthy breasts when she was a depressed teenager who struggled with mental health.

“Proceeding straight to breast amputation in a depressed, anxiety-ridden, gender-confused adolescent, who was incapable of understanding the lasting consequences of her decision, constitutes negligence for which Defendants are jointly and severally liable,” the lawsuit states.

Fox News reports:

Throughout adolescence, Hein struggled with her mental health and traumatic experiences, including being allegedly groomed and threatened by an adult man. She had serious mental-health struggles at age 13. By 15 she was diagnosed with “gender identity disorder” and put on a fast track to have her breasts removed, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims that despite Hein’s history, doctors rushed her into gender transition without considering her psychological comorbidities. It says the defendants used deceptive euphemisms and unscientific terminology to sell gender-transition procedures to Hein.

For instance, their use of the phrase “masculinizing hormone therapy” was misleading as the process does not heal the patient but does “inflict harm that causes malfunctioning and malformation of the teenage body and brain,” according to the lawsuit. Testosterone injections, which Hein received as part of her attempted sex change, can cause many negative side effects including high blood pressure and permanent bodily changes such as the development of an Adam’s apple, deepening of the voice, abnormal hair growth, and male pattern balding of the scalp.

The lawsuit says defendants were also negligent in other ways, such as in their shifting from a standard medical diagnosis to the “affirming care” model, which embraces a person’s gender delusion as fact and discourages questioning.

Allegedly one doctor, Nahia J. Amoura, was prepared to go even further. “About a year after starting Luka on testosterone, Dr. Amoura recommended to Luka that she surgically remove her uterus in a partial hysterectomy as the next step in her ‘transition,’” the lawsuit states. The hysterectomy would have permanently sterilized Hein and created hormonal imbalances that would have required long-term medical follow-ups.
