“If hydroxychloroquine works in stopping severe cases of the Chinese Bat Flu, then why should we not be able to take it? Enough with the politics already!” by Chef Cheryl La Tigre, CEC-ACF

When the China Virus vaccine becomes available, Lalo and I will be first in line to get it…
Honolulu, HI 96782, 08-12-2020 Wednesday: We typically try to write ahead as no one ever knows what is going to happen in this era of rampaging China Virus. Although Hawaii ranks near the bottom in both cases and deaths, we have moved up into third place the last time I looked. Generally, we like to think that we have less illness than other parts of the country because as long as the trades blow and as long as we are capable of enjoying the great outdoors, we typically are able to fend off most diseases.
Lalo and I have long gotten our flu shots as have our kids and now our grandkids. Say what you will about the efficacy of the annual flu vaccine or not, part of the protection is believing one has immunity to the annual arrival of the flu firmly secured in one’s mind that enables one to proceed to the next step of immunity, being practically immune to the scourge.
What I would like to see is this: how about someone conducting a study in which, we look at people who have gotten flu shots for the past 10 years, the past 20 years, the past 30 years, even the past 40 years and seeing what the numbers are for these people and their cases of Wuhan Bat Flu and their cases of deaths compared to recoveries. I would think that that would be something everyone would want to know.[i]
We have seen recent polling results that say about two-thirds of the American people will get the Bat Flu vaccine when it becomes available while the other third won’t. We know there are always anti-vaxxers out there who tremble and quake in fear over any vaccine, fearing they will somehow cripple their children and harm them later in life. Bah, humbug!
I think when the vaccine becomes available with which to protect us against the coronavirus, my husband and I will get inoculated. I mean, why not, if it will be the difference between seeing our life’s work destroyed and losing our house, then we would be crazy not to get it.[ii]
Likewise, our employees will be given a choice: get the vaccine and provide documented proof that you did or you can seek employment elsewhere. Again, if this is what we must do in order to resume our normal, everyday lives, then so be it. We will take our chances but we believe our chances will improve with getting inoculated. What do we have to lose?
The anti-vaxxers will say, ‘you have your lives to lose.’ While that is always a possibility no matter what vaccine or booster one gets of possibly dying, generally, vaccines make life that much better so if and when the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine becomes available, Lalo and I will go to our doctors and get it.
The other thing we will do is should we become ill with the coronavirus, is to seek out Plaquenil, hydroxychloroquine, if one of us is at risk of losing our lives.[iii] While I do not believe Kaiser Permanente will prescribe it as it would be for off-label purposes, there are other physicians and clinics that will and it would be to them we would go.[iv]
If need be, we would appeal our need to Governor David Ige and then to the White House because if the medication, with a half-century of proven usage, is denied us initially, we will seek someone higher up the food chain to allow us to obtain and take it. I mean, why the heck would one not, especially when it appears that it does indeed work for those with dire cases of COVID-19.
Medications should never become politicized but as with everything else connected to President Donald J. Trump, IF he suggests something ‘works,’ then members of my party- as well as the anti-Trumpers out there- will immediately launch into it and begin blasting it, all because of politics.
Friends, this should never be the case as we all want what is best for the American people. It matters not what your party is or for whom you voted in the last presidential election. All that matters is that if a medication- any medication- demonstrates promise in fighting a disease that most other medications won’t stop if it’s a severe case, then why the heck should we not be able to take it?
I am sure I will get blasted for voicing my opinions.[v] It is what it is. See you tomorrow.

Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created this cartoonish caricature of me so we can keep our identities on the down low due to increasing threats, Web intrusions and threats, and so we do not lose our professional businesses because of our politics here at the AICP-END Blogs.
That said, I began my career in the early 1970’s when I apprenticed to cook under one of the masters on the Big Island where I was born. I moved to Oahu in the early 1980’s after having worked in both Kona and Hilo, HI, and have been there for most of my professional career.
Moreover, I have also worked on Maui for a few years (1995-1998) and have been on Kauai (2001-2003) before returning to Honolulu. My goal is to prepare the next generation of chefs for the future and to help the underprivileged in their struggle to attain careers in the foodservice industry.

“If hydroxychloroquine works in stopping severe cases of the Chinese Bat, then why should we not be able to take it? Enough with the politics already!” by Chef Cheryl La Tigre, CEC-ACF
Wednesday, August 12, 2020:
[i] I suspect that were such polls conducted and made available, people would rush out and get their annual flu shots. I can tell you that Lalo and I have long gotten our flu shots because working in the world of professional foodservice means one cannot afford to get sick and miss work or infect their fellow employees and certainly not their customers. We would encourage everyone to get their flu shots every year and if you are in a group that requires a greater strength vaccine than normal then by all means get it. Do yourselves and your families a great service.
[ii] Unless the Chi-Coms are the ones manufacturing the vaccine. Nope, no way, Jose!
[iii] What the heck is the problem with getting hydroxychloroquine, both as a preventative and as a cure? This is crazy, people, to condemn a proven medication as somehow BAD. Stop being lolo already, use some common sense because I can tell you that if you or a loved one become deathly ill with the Beijing Bat Flu, you will be begging whomever to get the drug. Shut the heck up, already!
[iv] Kaiser has gotten kind of funny on prescribing medications for ‘off-label purposes.’ I don’t understand WHAT the problem is with ‘off-label.’ They used to do this whereas now, “Oh, no, we simply can’t.” Sheesh!
[v] There are so many snivelers out there among the various social media platforms, hence why I closed my Facebook, Linked-In, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. I can tell you, Facebook’s bots begged me not to go.
