Plugging The PCR Test Into The C19 Panic-Mongering
...you know, the test revealing all the alleged "cases" now being
used as the rationale for continuing to extend the two-week "curve flattening"
impositions of "lockdown", masking, "social distancing", etc...
LET'S START WITH a little
review. To begin with, let's remember that "flattening
the curve" was the soft pitch back in March, so that
the healthcare infrastructure would not be
overwhelmed. That was the sole rationale for
"lockdown", "social-distancing", masks and
all the rest.
We never agreed to hunker
down and let ourselves be treated as
presumptive disease vectors and to let our children
be conditioned with fear and denied normal
healthy development as human beings in order
to eliminate all chance of anyone catching
the virus. Nor did we do so in order to
spare germophobes and hypochondriacs the
need to use adequate PPE and to personally
inconvenience themselves alone until they
could get vaccinated and convince themselves
that they were then safe from risk of
LET'S ALSO REMEMBER that there
never WAS any overwhelming of the healthcare
infrastructure, both when all the mitigation
insanity was in full swing and when none of
it was. The closest thing to crowded
hospitals came in the early days when the
panic-mongering was most effective and those
in the most poorly-educated and least-educable
underclass demographic rushed into urban
hospitals as soon as a bad head cold
developed, certain it was the dreaded C19.
Many of those folks then ended
up strapped to their beds, dosed with
paralytics, and fitted with death-inducing
ventilators, eventually being used to
falsely inflate the alleged Covid-19
fatality figures to the great satisfaction
of the panic-mongering and exploiting
political and commercial interests, and the
great financial benefit of the hospitals
LET'S REMEMBER, TOO that 42% of
the overall total of those C19 fatality
figures are of the very old and sick in
nursing homes to which elderly patients with contagious respiratory illnesses were
sent by certain state governors, who
apparently felt those older patients were
not "essential" enough to deserve a hospital
These gubernatorially-installed disease
vectors were likely sick with the normal
seasonal flu (which
doctors were encouraged to designate as C19),
but that's just as fatal a virulent illness
as anything out there when introduced within
an elderly population-- and especially an
elderly population with comorbidities.
That tragic but tiny case
fatality rate last winter provides a true
picture of the relatively harmless nature of
the disease. Plainly, C19 tracks the
"swine flu" pandemic a whole lot more
closely than the "Spanish flu" pandemic of
1918 to which it is often hysterically

IN MAY, THE HYSTERIA WANED
SOMEWHAT, at least among medical professionals.
Calmer heads pulled back on the
practice of reporting every patient with
symptoms of a bad head cold a C19 victim,
and the deaths of any so distinguished, even
if from a decades-old condition of COPD or
diabetes or heart disease, as a C19 death.
With the reportable death toll
falling as a consequence of the calm-down,
the existing rationale for perpetuating the
oppressive and ruinous "lockdown" measures
became fragile. At the same time, the
importance of maintaining the panic and
letting a "new normal" settle in past the
point of hard questions being given a fair
hearing grew, as those responsible for the
unwarranted "mitigation" measures realized
their indefensible culpability for many
deaths and an unprecedented ruination of
lives, all committed in defiance of the law.
So, a replacement rationale was
quickly queued-up. Now the excuse is a purportedly
burgeoning number of "cases"-- meant to be
taken as an outbreak of infections which could,
we are to imagine, flare into
life-threatening severity in great numbers
of people at any moment.
However, just as the
number of C19 fatalities has been grossly
over-stated, so too is the alleged
proliferation of "cases".
YOU SEE, THE VAST MAJORITY OF
THESE TOUTED "CASES" are based on polymerase
chain reaction (PCR) tests. PCR tests,
while capable of indicating that a
person has had the C19 virus in them
(or molecules of the virus, at least-- or
molecules of SOME variety of coronavirus,
are ONLY able to make that singular
determination. It is incapable of
determining that the test subject is sick
with the disease, or how long ago that
person's exposure (and likely infection,

SO, PCR TESTS DO NOT INDICATE the
presence of actual infection. More
significant still in debunking the false
"outbreak" narrative these tests are being
fraudulently used to support is the fact
that the test is
also incapable of indicating WHEN an
exposure/infection took place.
Let that sink in: PCR tests
called upon to show the onset or occurrence
of any "outbreak". Thus, PCR test
results, even lots of "positives" from the
same area, cannot serve as
justifications for continued fear or
persistence of supposed mitigation measures,
such as "lockdowns", masking, or "social
As likely as not, every such
"positive" simply means that the subject was
the 36 - 51 million Americans which we know
were exposed to C19 during the winter of
2020 and came through unscathed--
without hospitalization or even merely a
visit to the doctor, in most cases. Thus,
every such "positive" just confirms that
massive exposure during the winter, and
underscores and emphasizes the pointlessness
of mitigation impositions in regard to an
illness thoroughly shown to be relatively
Already-ailing seniors, and the
elderly in general, need to take steps to
protect themselves from infection, to be

But everyone else can and
Everyone else should hug their
neighbors, re-open their businesses and

quickly as possible.

"Militia" Arrests In Michigan Last Week
...concerning which the
dialogue is more interesting in what is
going unsaid than in what is being said.
THE FIRST THING TO BE SAID is
that very little is being said. As of
Sunday morning, more than 72 hours after
the arrests were announced and 48 hours
after a series of
local and national news blurbs were aired
and the Friday papers offered some
reportage, the media appears to have largely let the matter
I have yet to find a
single bit of punditry in the alt-media upon
which I am usually able to rely for at least
honest, and generally courageous, commentary
on newsworthy events. Nor can any MSM
coverage of the matter be found that is more
recent than Friday other than a batch of
opinion pieces, clunky "bios" of the accused
and the standard, "I never would have
guessed" interviews of their neighbors
offered in the Sunday Detroit Free Press.
NEXT, LET ME POINT OUT, for the
sake of those who didn't follow this story
closely during its brief MSM airing, that
there were actually two apparently distinct
sets of arrests. One was of six suspects
charged by the feds with plotting to seize
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer at
gunpoint and put her on trial for treason.
The other arrests conducted at
the same time were by the state of Michigan
and involve accusations against seven men in
which "plotting the violent overthrow of the
government" is dramatically declared.
However, no one in this latter group is
charged with anything but "gang membership",
"threat of terrorism", "providing material
support for terrorist acts" and "carrying or
possessing a firearm during the commission
of a felony".
Though more information may
well change the picture eventually, this
group charged by Michigan appears to have
been of little more than hardcore preppers
triggered by the manifest illegality of the
"lockdowns", the absurd pretexts on which
they were based, and the obvious fake news by
which they continued to be justified over
the months. These folks seem to have
concluded that some despotic plan was being
rolled out and had begun doing the
equivalent of digging bomb shelters and
laying in supplies, which in this case
involved making contingency plans and doing
some training for a latter-day Lexington and
DESPITE THE LACK OF ANY
distinctly-alleged connection between the
two groups arrested, and the plain
distinctions between them in both charges
and charging authorities, all reportage that
I have seen confusingly (or confusedly)
mixes the two together (as
in the example here). No clarification
is apparently available from either federal
or state officials.
In light of this seeming
officially-welcomed confusion in the
narrative, one has to wonder if it is not
deliberate. Perhaps it is meant to clutter
the landscape a bit and and obscure or make
more difficult to address the context of
the "arrest Gretchen Whitmer and put her on
trial" offense with which the one group is
charged (and to a lesser degree obscure the
backstory regarding the "preppers", as
Whitmer has tried to justify
her illegal acts by claiming that they
"saved lives". But there is actually
whatever by which that claim can be
verified, and, in fact,
all the evidence says otherwise.
The massive harms
done, on the other
hand, are established facts.
And frankly, even if it could
be proven that Constitutional violations
saved lives, they are still criminal acts.
The Constitution provides for no
"suspension" for even the best of intentions
or even because a real benefit might be had
to purportedly balance against the certain
evil inherent in eroding the rule of law.
NOW, DON'T GET ME WRONG. None of this
context-discussion is meant to
suggest that a plot to kidnap Whitmer was
justified, if such a plot there was.
But these facts regarding
Whitmer's actions over the last seven months
are surely relevant and necessary for
accurate, complete reporting and opining on
the subject of these arrests. This need is
illustrated by reports and interviews in
which Whitmer and her supporters have gotten
away with gratuitously characterizing the
suspects as "anti-government" (which
is to suggest they are mindless and
indefensible anarchists or nihilists), when
the omitted facts suggest that a much more
accurate characterization might be, "anti-illegal-government".
And yet, these facts are
going entirely unremarked in all coverage I
have seen concerning last week's arrests.
Indeed, all told, the
of charges and conflation of the two groups
charged in this sudden 13-man arrest event--
and the timing of the arrests, as well-- seem
calculated to push off the front page what
had been the growing recognition of Gretchen Whitmer's crimes (and by extension, those of
other governors who issued the same illegal
edicts as Whitmer, along with a number of
federal public health officials and media
voices who all played supporting roles in
the myriad harms done).
But maybe I'm just a
I'LL CLOSE WITH MENTION OF ONE
OTHER THING WHICH, while not entirely unsaid
in other places where it ought to be, merits
being said more loudly for special reasons
in this case: We must recognize that the
truth of the accusations cannot actually be
known until a fair trial has been held and
all the evidence presented, and in fact, we
must consider it an established fact that
the charges are false until a sufficiency of
tested evidence has proven otherwise, if
such evidence exists.
This presumption of innocence
is true in all accusations of course, but
even more so in this one. Here, the timing
of the charges-- and their obvious
convenience to culpable "lockdown" offenders
and their narrative managers-- should raise
everyone's skeptical antennae, as should the
matter of the informant whose was paid
$8,600 to secretly record the suspects
during meetings of which he was a part. The
incentive for such a person to prompt
conversations of a potentially-incriminating
variety is obvious, and may be the sole
reason any such things were said, it indeed
such things were said at all.
Those antennae should go
especially high in light of another
consideration: the "Hutaree"
pretense of just ten years ago. In that bit
of theater-- possibly engineered onto the
front pages for political and
spin-management reasons (and hard to see it
as anything else in light of the outcome)--
charges strikingly-similar to those in the
instant affair were leveled against eight
men and one woman in 2010, only to be
ultimately found entirely bogus by the federal judge
presiding over the case.
Again: Antennae up, people, and
keep the whole picture firmly in focus.
P.S. I could go on to talk
about the fact that, assuming the truth of
the accusations, anyone feeling aggrieved by Gretchen Whitmer's
should never have contemplated taking the
law into their own hands, but should have instead gone to Dana Nessel,
Michigan's Attorney General, and demanded
that her office do its job and bring charges
against Whitmer. If getting no satisfaction
down that avenue, these aggrieved citizens
should have then turned to the U.S. Attorney
stationed in one place or another in
Michigan, seeking a federal solution.
But, no. I'll leave it to each
reader to think those things through on

Important guest observations

by Yours Truly
Lockdown: The New Totalitarianism
by Jeffrey A. Tucker
Every political ideology
has three elements: a vision of hell with an enemy
that needs to be crushed, a vision of a more perfect
world, and a plan for transitioning from one to the
other. The means of transition usually involve the
takeover and deployment of society’s most powerful
tool: the state. For this reason, ideologies trend
totalitarian. They depend fundamentally on
overriding people’s preferences and choices and
replacing them with scripted and planned belief
systems and behaviors.
An obvious case is
communism. Capitalism is the enemy, while
worker control and the end of private
property is the heaven, and the means to
achieve the goal is violent expropriation.
Socialism is a softer version of the same:
in the Fabian tradition, you get there
through piecemeal economic planning.
The ideology of
racism posits something different. The hell
is ethnic integration and race mixing, the
heaven is racial homogeneity, and the means
of change is the marginalization or killing
off of some races. Fascism imagines global
trade, individualism, and immigration to be
the enemy while a mighty nationalism is
heaven: the means of change is a great
leader. You can observe the same about
certain brands of theocratic religious
Each of these
ideologies comes with a primary intellectual
focus, a kind of story designed to occupy
the mind. Think about exploitation. Think
about inequality. Think about race theory.
Think about national identity. Think about
salvation. Each comes with its own language
to signal one’s attachment to the ideology.
Most of the above
ideologies are well worn. We have plenty of
experience to draw on from history to
observe the patterns, recognize the
adherents, and refute the theories.
This year has given
us a new ideology with totalitarian
tendencies. It has a vision of hell, of
heaven, and a means of transition. It has a
unique language apparatus. It has a mental
focus. It has signaling systems to reveal
and recruit adherents.
That ideology is
called lockdown. We might as well add the
ism to the word: lockdownism.
Its vision of hell
is a society in which pathogens run freely.
Its heaven is a society managed entirely by
medical technocrats whose main job is the
suppression of all disease. The mental focus
is the viruses and other bugs. The
anthropology is to regard all human beings
as little more than sacks of deadly
pathogens. The people susceptible to the
ideology are the people with various degrees
of mysophobia, once regarded as a mental
problem now elevated to the status of social
This year has been
the first test of lockdownism. It included
the most intrusive, comprehensive, and
near-global controls of human beings and
their movements in recorded history. Even in
countries where the rule of law and
liberties are sources of national pride,
people were put under house arrest. Their
churches and businesses were closed. The
police have been unleashed to enforce it all
and arrest open dissent. The devastation
compares with wartime except that it was a
government-imposed war on people’s right to
move and exchange freely. We still cannot
after all of this, what remains missing is
the empirical evidence, from anywhere in the
world, that this shocking and unprecedented
regime had any effect on controlling much
less stopping the virus. Even more
remarkably, the few places that remained
fully open (South Dakota, Sweden, Tanzania,
points out Will Jones, “lost no more
than 0.06% of their population to the
virus,” in contrast to high deaths lockdown
New York and Britain.
AS ALWAYS, I HOPE YOU READ THE FEATURED
OBSERVATION ABOVE in its entirety. Tucker says a
lot, and all of it is important.
The most important thing to be
gotten from the piece is the simple and
serious-as-a-heart-attack fact that the
American experiment is RIGHT NOW under the
most dangerous existential threat it has
ever faced-- by a lot. However much the
panic-campaign of the last nine months has
worked to make them seem reasonable, the
"lockdowns" and all other measures
purportedly meant to mitigate
the pretended unprecedented threat of
COVID-19 (C19) are the dagger-strike at
liberty and the rule of law generations of
Cold Warriors mistakenly feared would come
from the USSR or China.
There really IS a coup being
carried out right now, on both a cultural
and a legal level, and its object is your
subjugation. Fail to rise against it at your
I HAVE EQUIPPED ANY WHO WILL
BOTHER TO DO A LITTLE READING with a package
of data and analysis proving that C19 is
not, and never has been, itself a meaningful
threat to anyone.
That data, showing 36 - 51 million C19
infections in America from December, 2019,
through March, 2020, with only 97 fatalities
attributable to the disease during the whole
period, makes clear that the "lockdown"
regime is based on a fraud and is being
perpetuated for in service to an agenda, not
for the sake of your safety.
It has become an abiding
heartache of mine that my strenuous
presentation of this illuminating, "wake up"
data for months now has gone entirely
unseconded by even those in this
CtC community. I had expected otherwise.
I believe that if
this material were widely distributed
and discussed, the "lockdownism" assault (to
use Tucker's apt neologism) would be
thwarted. But that happy outcome will only
be possible if the material is distributed
and discussed quickly.
Vigorously-promoted spin and
frauds of the sort on which the "lockdownism"
imposition relies become embedded and
impossible to undo if allowed too much time
to put down their roots. Such attacks can
only be turned aside by equally vigorous and
timely corrective opposition.
There is still time to save
America, I think, but barely.
I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country
to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored
hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood

firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching
my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age
in their careers had run into a wall common to all but
the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good,
and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard
work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with
a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to
risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging
back from seizing the main chance when it appeared,
and driving for the goal.
My solution was to post on the wall of
our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline,
the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if
you don't take a shot.
That's how it is here, too. If you don't
stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score
Here is what my kids live by now, in their
own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all
the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of
a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard,
or go home.

how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would

should not be highly rated.”

and straight to a focus on truth, morality, and our
American heritage of liberty and the rule of law.
Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.
Speak about rights. Speak about morality,
and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person
to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution.
Speak about everyone's duty
to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar
only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation
to respect yourself, and to look out for the current
and future well-being of your children and your fellow
citizens. Speak of
CtC, and what its information has done for your
understanding and resolve. Show the book.
If you have had victories, describe them.
Better still, show them, if possible.
Be clear about just what you accomplished:
EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all;
a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper
agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't
subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in
was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s;
or whatever happened.
When you speak of state victories, name
the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax
agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!
If you're in a battle now, speak of your
resolve to uphold the law, come what may--
why you're not discouraged, and why you are not
standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and
not choosing to endorse the lies. Don't get
into details-- your audience is going to have no
idea what a "LTR3176" is, and you will NOT be
capable of explaining it adequately. This is an
subject area concerning which you should speak from
the heart, not the head.
If you haven't
yet begun to act, share the reasons for your decision to do so, and
Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE
Watch your own video after you
record it and ask yourself: Putting yourself
in the place of someone completely immersed
in "the matrix"-- oblivious to any notions
that you might have been a victim of an
"ignorance tax", and comfortable with the
status quo-- would the video you just made
encourage you to push aside your comforting
illusions and learn the liberating truth? If
not, try again.
Identify yourself. Anonymity is for criminals and self-doubters, not
warriors. Naming yourself is a requirement, and your
name will appear as a subtitle on the video when I
prepare it for posting, in any event.
Mention what you do for a living, whether
you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy
or gal, retiree or student. Help people understand
that the company of grown-up activist Americans they
are being invited to join cuts across all demographics
and all interests-- with the common denominator being
respect for the law and love of the principles on which
this great country was founded.
This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.
We've all had frustrating occasions of
trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family
member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall
of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is
your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks
who have themselves decided that it's time for them
to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your
testimonial for exactly that reason.
Further, think about this: You want judges,
bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you
work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else
to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly.
How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?
You want these folks to learn the truth.
Why would they even recognize that there is a truth
to be learned if you won't attest to having learned
it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and
chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and
checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen
the government evasions and you know that the tax is
not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants
everyone to think it is but a benign, strictly limited
thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.
Again, if you have victories to show, that's
nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have
victories to display in order to declare your knowledge
of what the law says. I've never flown around the world,
but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments,
and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...
Even those of you who haven't yet studied
CtC have surely read
this short document, and have verified everything
in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring
its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again,
if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will
ever even bother to look at the facts?
Be the change you want to see in the world,
or there won't be any change.

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As
Falling Off A Bike
To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works,
try this little exercise:
Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob,
who lives down the street from you in a town that is
really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting,
deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking,
bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in
Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting
business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and
away the biggest business in town.
Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract
business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders
who have signed an agreement with him, or even just
those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time
anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd
combination of circumstances that took many years to
Here's how it happened...
Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather
of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started
out not only with a main location for his contract business--
he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around
town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the
more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone
could take and use one of these bikes, but they were
expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob
a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate
rent), periodically. The initial design of the form
was like this:
rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles
At Bob's rental
rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______
I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these
occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's
true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to
miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up
the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around
handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms"
to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied
by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone
riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he
would sue the company involved-- said:
You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know
What You’re Fighting About
If you are having an argument
with the IRS or any other tax agency,
You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate
You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign
You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion
You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject
is never identified.
You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists
that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply--
even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect,
and CAN be corrected.

YOU Decide To "Let Someone Else Do It"?

IF EACH PERSON receiving this newsletter each week distributed as
few as 100 of any of
the great outreach tools featured here to co-workers, friends,
neighbors and family members (or just strangers on the street, in
the mall, etc...), we could have SEVERAL MILLION new Americans

Just like that! In one week!
C'mon, people, let's roll on this!
“Most of the important things in the
world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when
there seemed to be no hope at all.”
When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.
I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention
and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write
as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend
Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated
with, the text you are reading, follow it!
It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered
with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions
or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original
material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't
understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent
to the original text.
It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are
confident that they are familiar with language or references within
the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over
included links. I do it all the time, myself!
However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory
purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is
generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative
material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding
of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding
of the original page. (Links to
CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general
rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory
Highlights or 'Every
Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions,
are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and
the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith,
themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful
attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)
Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least
looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which
you are completely familiar from another study session.
Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at
first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak
material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every
page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed
to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again
if it's been a while since your last having done so.
