"Bit is worth your attention and I can link those up in the show notes. Cool. So then, obviously, the big issue here this last couple of weeks has been the reemergence of a virulent covid nineteen in the United States of America and all that has wrought and I think that we're both. We don't want to get too politicized here with it, but a couple of things have come out. Stand out for me. And one that I wanted to talk to you about and get your take on. Was this idea of of masks or anti terrorism and the American love of freedom, and that's being reflected right now in two very different takes on things. One is the anti mask crowd who people who don't want to wear masks see the orders of mask ordinances around cities and states as an example of authoritarianism, and then in Portland right now there are extended black lives matter protests, and in and the city has been. been dealing with that for ever, since George Floyd died and more recently, the federal government has set in customs and Border Patrol agents that are basically jackboots on the ground that are taking people off the street. Even people who aren't at the protests have claimed to be arrested, and and in blackout cars by unidentified federal agents, and then turned up next thing you know they're in federal court so in a way that feels very authoritarian ist to a lot of people, especially those protesters and you have kind of. Those two things juxtaposed on the mask front I was reading a great article in the Salt Lake Tribune by Courtney Tanner and it was about how in the conservative counties they don't want their children to have to wear masks. Mothers are spitting in masks at County Council meetings. And then you go to Huntington, Beach California. Where the guys chat and JT. What's their Youtube Channel? Those guys Chad goes deep right and. These guys are hilarious and they turn up at like city council meetings all the time and troll the. Going around trying to give away free mass, trying to get away cheaper angry at them exactly and it's the same thing that's happening in Provo. Utah, so it's not just happening. It's not fringe really these reactions to masks so interesting I think. What I find fascinating about. This is the different lenses through which people perceive. Authoritarianism on the one hand. You have the anti mass crowd who are? Rallying against this edict that we wear masks as an infringement on their liberties, and on the other hand, we have these federal troops, essentially this militarized police force. That's patrolling the streets of Portland. And uniforms that don't have names and don't necessarily designate their authority and unmarked vehicles vans, etc, rounding people up arresting people. and. There's a certain contingent of people who I would suspect that the people who are against wearing masks. Don't have such a big problem with that. And the question then becomes versa yeah, and vice versa right, so the yeah, the people were exactly so the question then becomes what is truly authoritarian. What is the real risk here? Where we seeing inroads on our democratic ideals and living in truly liberty oriented democratic society right to me. And I have to like. Is this my cognitive bias to me? I! Don't have a problem wearing a mask. It's a mild in I. Don't like wearing a mask. It's a mild inconvenience, but to the extent that there's any evidence whatsoever. That might be helpful or protective for other people to. Keep them from getting sick I'm happy to do it. I'm happy to do it, but when I see. Troops in a city. On Federal Authority against the wishes of certain state, governors and mayors and local politicians, patrolling streets and arresting people. Seemingly I don't know I'm not I I've born witnessed any of this. But I read that esquire article about this. That's more deeply concerning to me. It feels like a greater threat to our liberty and far more authoritarian than this idea like where masks and look out for each other. Yeah, I talked to somebody WHO's at the protest in Portland on. Friday, night and And there it was similar to what we had here. Where the police kind of did escalate the tension as opposed to try to escalate it but they weren't. Identify themselves I. think that that has started to trickle out. It's it's really hard to know exactly what's happening because when you come when you have these kinds of really tense situations. Nobody is objective observer. You know so. It's hard to know exactly what's happening in. What is mistakes mistakes being made that are legitimate infringements on civil liberty, and what is like they're doing it on purpose like where where's that line so gray, but we do know the mayor of Portland has asked for the federal agents to leave We do know that And you know there was this line from the salt. Lake coverage of this was in Provo and one of the leaders Republican who sits on the county council in Provo said. The mandates and he's he's on the county. The county council is I don't like government mandates, but and that's true right like so a lot of us. Don't like it, so the question is like what is it in the American soul that makes us these love this lover of liberty, but maybe to our own detriment to the point that we we want. We don't want to be told what to do. No matter what, but in this case. In terms of the masks people are doing it, and it could really come back at them in the form of of a virus that could kill them like what is the and it's already kind of made us. Nationality non grata all over the world. We're down to twenty eight countries. We can go visa-free. Go almost anywhere where the American passport. That passport has been devalued right so there's a there's a stricture on our liberty right their ability to travel globally. Yeah, it's so fascinating. How vociferous and angry people are certain? People are when asked to wear a mass is when you see that in that comedic video with those guys. They're basically like. Hey, do you WanNa Free Mask and people are? Are Flipping the bird and fuck off. Yes, and getting really angry. Is that the muscles? So why is it? Why is it making people so angry I? Think is one question like what what is that rage all about and that's something. We talked about a couple of weeks ago, right that like repressed rage. That's just beneath the surface. That I think has a lot to do with. People feeling like they don't have as much agency in their lives. As as they feel like they deserve and that's a longer thing that we went into before, but. Juxtaposing that onto what we're seeing in Portland and then contextualising with this this argument around free speech, where where's the speech being impinged like? If you're unable to protest, because you're GONNA, get arrested even if you're doing it legally. That's seems like a greater. Repercussion an inroad on free speech, then being told to wear a mask while they relate right is in, and how and why did wearing a mask become so politicized? Well that I think takes us back to the Cunanan and all that Youtube coverage and the negativity around this the people who think the pandemic is a hoax which you did here in that that comedic video and Huntington Beach, but you also hear it in the in the council rooms and in protest lines in Salt Lake City and Provo that people don't believe..

infected with corona virus were transferred from detox center to the only acute care Medical Center for the general public within a hundred and ten miles of Gallup they're putting multiple clocks in one room to accommodate people Salt Lake City well attorneys affect our law firm has attacked Salt Lake Tribune story and the reporting about an officer who allegedly mishandled sensitive photos of university of Utah student Lauren McCloskey before she was killed the troops Tribune story by Courtney Tanner claims that officer Miguel terrace one of the officers assigned to the McCloskey case bragged to another officer about having compromising photos of Lauren McCloskey the murder victim it and he said that he's this officer said McElderry showed me one of the photos they were on his phone and she she had given me off of the photos to the campus police she was talking about she's being blackmailed over these photos of the story claims Deris showed the photos to another officer at the briefing in it so there is a law firm that saying no he didn't do that and we want the Salt Lake Tribune to retract their story the attorney's letter says those claims were investigated and dismissed as unfounded he never shared any photos in question and certainly not in the manner described the investigation was also include will close with no finding that officer Deris had shared the photos were stored them in properly there was no finding that he bragged about the photo or made an inappropriate joke officer terrace was not disciplined because he did nothing wrong and so this law

"Is Cova nineteen sexually transmissible. That was the first question. We tackled novel. Corona virus began to upend our lives and we asked. We didn't wait for you guys to ask us. We got experts on the phone and put the question to them right away because we knew people would want to know the answer. I wanted to know the answer and the answer was basically. Well Duh of course loco. Vid Nineteen isn't classified as a sexually transmitted infection. You can catch it if someone breathes or cops sneezes near you. The virus can also survive on surfaces. So if you get close enough to someone who has it and may not be showing symptoms as most people who have it are awesome dramatic if you get close enough for a or B or Pim intercourse beans vagina. Pearson Peterson mouth or Emo V. Malcolm China or as on face hell if you get close enough to someone just to kiss them. You're going to be within sixty eight of them whether the virus was present in semen or vaginal secretions wasn't yet known. We were told that it hadn't been found in those bodily fluids but it wasn't clear anyone had looked for it in those bodily fluids but there was no question really that sex could transmit the corona virus. Which is why. I'm a little worried about people who read the headline in the Salt Lake City Tribune last Friday with out bothering to read the story. That headline you cannot transmit corona virus through sex. A New University of UTAH. Study Finds Courtney Tanner reports on two studies. One tested the semen intestines of thirty four men. In Wuhan China all the men at tested positive for the virus but none of the samples of semen of the balls showed signs of corona virus. All thirty four. The subjects had mild cases and the sample size was small. But the results were significant. No virus detected in their spunk or their junk. Another study looked at ten women with severe cases of cove nineteen infection a smaller but sicker sample size. And no sign of. The virus was founded there vaginal secretions. Either if I may digress for a moment spunk splurge come Jisr Baby Better. So many Avakian instantly understandable slang terms from jacket but always seemed to have her badge. Secretions is badge. Secretions is not right. Anyway it's kind of a paradox unlike Zeka and a bola which are present and semen and vaginal secretions and can be transmitted sexually. The novel Corona Virus according to these studies isn't present and Semen. Vaginal Secretions and technically can't be transmitted sexually. But you're definitely going to get infected. You get close enough to someone who has it to have sex with them. Tanner makes that clear in her story. Ten paragraphs into her story the virus can be spread through other intimate contact. Which is why we have to stay six feet away from others when possible. It almost certainly would be transmitted if you're kissing someone it's advise them. That partners wanting to have sex do so only. If they're already staying in the same household yes that is what's advised. That's what we've been advising people from the start all along. Fuck the people you live with unless you live with your parents in which case you know don't but basically these two studies haven't changed anything that I worry and worrying is what I do best at. I worry that won't be the takeaway for anyone who just read the headline. You cannot transmit corona virus through sex and we know. Most people only read the headlines. Perhaps I'm being an alarmist. Anyone who listens to the show regularly is familiar with the self-serving rationalizations horny. People are prone to engage in Dick. Full thinking twaddell thinking it gets us in trouble which is why we need to keep reminding people even if the virus is in present in. Pearl Jam or Agile Secretions. Sex with new partners can definitely transmit corona virus at least until someone opens that chain of glory holes power washed and disinfected between each use. But I talked about on the show all right coming up on. Today's show on the micro free edition of the savage. Love cast. Dr Daniel West strike is back to give us an update on you guessed it.

"In New Hampshire record. Number of women who are struggling with opioid addiction are being forced to give up their newborn children as Rachel Gotbaum reports. The state has few services to offer these mothers before they risk losing their children permanently for several years. Jillian broom. Steen was addicted to Percocet and heroin. But once she learned she was pregnant at age twenty six. She knew she wanted to get off drugs. I started off by going to detox. When I found out I was pregnant because I wanted a clean slate in New Hampshire. The weightless for a detox bed is long. So broom Steen drove down to Massachussetts. It was there. She was put on methadone and told it was the best way to treat her disease and to keep her baby safe after detox. She returned home to rural New Hampshire, but getting to the closest methadone clinic each day was a challenge. And sometimes she bought opiates off the street. She knew withdrawing from drugs could endanger her pregnancy. I was more worried about the unborn baby. Unable to get transportation. So now I'm detoxing pregnant, which is dangerous. Broom seen son, Jeremy was born healthy except that he tested positive for methadone. In New Hampshire. Hospitals are required by law to inform the state division for children. Youth and families also known as DC YIF and brooms teen would need to find a safe place to live or she could lose her son. I was told that you have to have twenty four hours supervision from a family member that would build about for you. So like a grandmother, a stay at home, mom, anybody like that. But in order to keep my child, I had to have twenty four hours supervision. Broom Stein grew up in foster care and had no family of her own. She tried to get a bed in one of the few residential drug treatment programs for new mothers, but they were all full. So she and her newborn moved in with a friend and her kids. They were there for just two weeks when two women and a police officer came to the door. They were from DC YIF. They said that if I couldn't. Find a family member that they would have to take him in place him in foster care. Even though Jillian broom Steen had not used heroin for months and wasn't counseling and parenting classes. Jeremy was taken from her that day. I was doing all the work that they wanted me to do, but I had to until I got into a place, they weren't going to give him back to me, it was hard play. Kitchens feels like you rip your chest out. The number of children placed in foster care in New Hampshire has more than doubled in recent years. Much of that as a result of the opioid epidemic, which has overwhelmed the state's limited resources. Joseph Ripston runs DC YIF what you'd see in a lot of other jurisdictions. If you have a case load of something around twelve families right now, New Hampshire people have an average caseload of somewhere in the forties, right? That's a huge difference. But that's not the only difference says Ripston because of major budget cuts to child welfare case workers in New Hampshire can only offer help to struggling families. Once they have opened. Case of abuse and neglect. There's little money to support parents before that happens. The result of that is exactly what you see in the data that more children coming into the foster care system that otherwise might not. If we had the capacity to serve families more holistically upfront. In the kitchen of an old house in Rochester, New Hampshire moms are gathered with their babies, mama. This is hope on haven hill where eight pregnant women and new moms can live with their children while they receive treatment for their drug addiction. Some of the women who live here are battling to get their kids back from the state. They have twelve months to do what the court asks of them, which includes staying sober and treatment, and finding safe insecure housing, or they can lose their parental rights. I cannot stress enough that twelve months is a really short window for somebody who's in early recovery. Courtney Tanner runs this program. If a mother can't find resources or from other experiences relapsed during that twelve month window that child can be removed from her and put up for adoption. Her rights could be terminated. Jillian, broom Stein, almost lost her son, Jeremy to state custody, but she was determined to get him back after he was placed into foster care. She continued her methadone treatment and finally got a bed in another residential treatment program. For young moms. She was reunited with him after a few months, but she knows a lot of women who gave up hope and went back to using drugs.
