HOW MANY SHOTS WILL IT TAKE

How many shots, masks, tests, and how much hand sanitizer will it take to end the Pandemic? How many more days do we need to stay home to ensure hospital care for the elderly and the immune-compromised?

On December 20, 2021, just as our kids were finishing up what for many has been the most brutal school year of their young lives, the newly appointed President of The Palos Verdes School District, Linda Reid, sent a very condescending Holiday message. While she started in the right direction by quoting her colleague Ami Gandhi who said, "We must respect one another," she undid any hope for respect from us when she went on to quote a philosophy professor who wrote an op-ed in the New York Times regarding COVID-19. She requoted his sentiments, "People who say that they should be exempt without cost are refusing to take their responsibility seriously to the rest of us. They can hardly expect us to burden ourselves for their sakes if they aren't inclined to reciprocate."

Was she talking about her colleagues who were all gathered together indoors sipping on cocktails despite the State-Wide Indoor Mask Mandate? A picture is worth a thousand words and we see fully unmasked School Board Member Suzanne Seymore and Superintendent Alex Cherniss standing next to School Board Member, Richard Phillips' Wife. We thought being socially close was against the COVID LAWS. Isn't it so interesting how they take no shame in being publicly unburdened in photographs while the kids were off in a corner in masks playing the violin? The irony is too much for any sane human to comprehend. And, to see those kids playing the violin, too...hopefully, they can learn how to play something fitting for the moment like the Kraken or another epic battle scene. (Kids, we see you! And, there's a whole lot of Grown-Ups who are fighting for you.) For the record, we have no problem with unmasked partiers and big donors. Our issue is with the unmasked telling us to wear masks.


Linda went on to say, "If you are around other people over the holiday break, regardless of your vaccination status, you have a duty to our community to be COVID tested before returning to school on January 3.

And just a week later, the Superintendent, who was also spotted not following the rules he made, sent out a District-wide email stating, "Our school district is seeing a huge upswing in Covid positive cases over the past several days. This surge is consistent with trends locally and nationally. Yesterday, there were over 50 Covid positive cases at our district testing sites, a single-day high since the beginning of this Pandemic."

What do you think is going to happen when you tell everyone in town to go get tested?


Cherniss warned us of three different scenarios that may or may not happen that include the possibility of another school closure, stricter COVID mandates on all school campuses, or perhaps one more week off for the kids with an extension of the Holiday. But what does that mean for the Parents who have to go to work to put food on the table for their families? Are our School Board Members all really so privileged that they have no clue as to how these spontaneous mandates destroy lives for the middle class and families that rely on two incomes from both the Mother and Father? We think they are pretty clueless. And, we do hope they will prove us wrong by implementing some common sense win-win solutions that entail an online curriculum for the vulnerable and scared and an in-person education for the free and the brave.

Let's just review...if you are on our list we bet you already are very informed but here we go anyway because it's always great to go over the facts... here are some great conversations starters for New Year's Eve Parties:


FACTS:

  1. The CDC just shortened their quarantine time from ten days to five days after Delta's request for Rochelle Walensky to shorten it.

  2. All experts agree that Omicron is highly contagious, like the cold, but not as deadly or serious as the initial SARS-CoV-2 strain.

  3. Vaccinated People are testing Positive For Omicron.

  4. More Brilliant Scientific Whistle-Blowers than we can count warned early on of the risk of mass vaccinations while a virus is still rapidly mutating. Check out this publication of viral enhanced Vaccine-Associated Enhanced Viral Disease: Implications for Viral Vaccine Development

  5. The FDA only approved the PCR-Tests for Emergency Use Authorization.

  6. Kary Mullis, the inventor of the PCR test used to test for covid-19 was never meant to be a diagnostic tool and does not measure viruses according to the Nobel Prize-winning scientist who developed the test itself. He goes on to say he has tried, to no avail, to get Fauci to debate him with no luck.

  7. PCR tests have long been blamed for a high number of false-positive COVID-19 test results. The CDC says they need to transition away from using PCR testing. The CDC is withdrawing its EUA for the COVID-19 PCR tests starting on December 31, 2021.

  8. 86.5% of people over the age of five in the city of Rolling Hills have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Other surrounding town data from The LA County Dashboard shows that:

  • 71.1% of Rolling Hills is vaxed.

  • 79.8% of Palos Verdes Estates is Vaxed.

  • 79.8% of Rancho Palos Verdes is Vaxed.

  • 78.8% or Rancho Palos Verdes Estates is Vaxed.

  • 41.3% or PVE, 38.6% or RPV, 36.3% of R.H., and 43% of RHE have all been triple boosted.


Despite the high vaccination rate, cases have tripled. Could this be that the vaccines aren't working? Or, could it be that we have a town of hypochondriacs who are getting tested two to three times a week for a virus they don't have symptoms for because Linda told them, it is your duty to the community to get tested even if you aren't sick?


  • The facts remain, our children were deprived of academic and emotional learning for almost two years in a healthy interpersonal learning environment.

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the Children's Hospital Association -- which collectively represent over 77,000 physicians and over 200 children's hospitals -- have sounded the alarm over a "shocking" rise in families seeking urgent mental health help for their children.


We have had enough of people like Linda Reid, Suzanne Seymore, Alex Cherniss, and Rick Phillips telling us to do the right thing when every bit of evidence points to the fact that they fail to put our kids first and we are seeing first hand the pain and anguish subjected onto our kids due to fear and anxiety; not science. For the record, if you don't listen to the Board Meetings, the only one who is gently pushing for choice is Matt Brach. And, we really need a whole new Board of Education so if you have ever been on the fence about running; please hop on over and let us know because we will be your door-to-door sales ladies.


For a few of the above examples and countless others, Save PV Schools is suing PVPUSD, CA Department of Public Health, and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and we aren't asking for money.


We are asking for these Elected Government Officials to do the right thing according to the Administrative Procedure Act and Science.


While we can't sue these power-hungry control freak and CDC puppets for hypocrisy, we can sue them for failing to do their jobs and putting the burden of responsibility to save lives on little kids.

Our Writ Of Mandamus will hold them accountable for their failure to use the $15 million in State and Federal Funding they received to ensure proper air ventilation and clean air ducts in every classroom. We requested a court-ordered injunction to force The School Board Members to stop enforcing recommendations and rather see that a recommendation is a non-binding agreement. They need to stop telling us what to do and how to live, especially when they aren't following their own rules.


Please, email the board and Cherniss and tell them you do not want the schools to close.

Apparently, "concerned parents" have been emailing the board begging them to delay the start because "omicron is so rampant." These paranoid parents falsely believe they are saving lives when in reality, they are contributing to the ongoing hysteria and devastating effects of school closures. According to an overwhelming body of scientific evidence, the primary cause of the FLU, COVD-19, and the common cold demonstrates that illness is an internal stress response primarily due to lifestyle-induced inflammation in one's pulmonary and circulatory system. COVID-19 is a personal health issue that our kids should not be punished for.
