In the factory of sadness, the daily lament heard from the guardian angels who attempt to watch over the unfortunate’s, who unbeknownst to themselves lost a pre-birth bet for their souls, and as a result, find themselves living on this rat ship, is a lament of permanent incredulity.
The angels scurry about each day carrying anvils of common sense to drop on the heads of those they are charged with protecting, and each day, the angels’ lamentations to the heavens grow stronger, wondering firstly, what heavenly screw-up allows this vaudeville to continue, and secondly, what heavenly screw-up gave homo sapiens a mind, heart, soul and immune system, all of which expired in the year 2020.
Baby formula maker Abbott reaches FDA deal to reopen Michigan plant in two weeks – via washingtonexaminer.com
Baby formula maker Abbott has reached a deal with federal regulators to get its shuttered Sturgis, Michigan, plant up and running again, a move that will help alleviate the severe nationwide shortage.
the article continues:
The current formula shortage has parents scrambling to find supplies in stores hours from their homes or on social media sites for an inflated price. The resumption of production at the Sturgis facility will ease the pain of the shortage, which began last summer and has steadily worsened since then. Supplies in the United States dwindled further in February when Abbott halted production and recalled several formula brands after the FDA received reports of four infants becoming severely ill with bacterial infections. Two of them died.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a thorough sweep of the plant and concluded that the bacteria responsible for the infections, Cronobacter sakazakii, were only found in non-product contact areas of the facility and have not been linked to any known infant illness. Genetic sequencing of samples from two of the infants revealed that their cases of Cronobacter sakazakii did not match the strains found in the Sturgis plant.
The February recall of some of Abbott’s powdered formulas and subsequent plant shutdown caused considerable strain on the market, which is dominated by just four brands — Abbott Nutrition, Reckitt Benckiser, Nestle, and Perrigo.
So, the FDA took the hammer to Abbott back in February due to it receiving reports of four infants becoming severely ill with bacterial infections.
As of the latest update to the U.S. Government’s Vaccine Adverse Reporting System (VAERS) there have now been 4,154 fetal deaths reported following COVID-19 vaccines, a period of about 17 months. (Source.)
The Biden Administration happily sends $40 billion off to Ukraine without hesitation but refuses to fund the problems we are facing at home. This nationwide formula shortage is an extremely serious issue that US politicians simply disregard. A fraction of the money spent on Ukraine could have fixed the Michigan plant that closed after the recall, and it could have been used to create new manufacturing plants and import more formula in the meantime. – Martin Armstrong – armstrongeconomics.com

Jimi Hendrix – ‘The Wind Cries Mary’
Jimi wrote the song quietly in his apartment and didn’t show it to anybody. After recording “Fire”, he had 20 minutes to spare in the recording studio, so he showed it to the band. They managed to record it in the 20 minute period they had. The band later recorded several more takes of the song, but they all seemed very sterile and they decided to go with the original recording. – via songfacts.com
