    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Source? Or is this something we're just telling each other. All this gnashing of teeth over proper safety and efficacy protocols for vaccines yet we're already convinced of hydroxychloroquine's safety and efficacy in preventing COVID. Cognitive dissonance?

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Chester (Sam?) seemed to be articulating some pretty strong reactions to some of the public health pronouncements. It came through to me as something he was pretty sensitive about. He's saying he doesn't want anyone to do anything to protect him from the virus acknowledging he's at higher risk...

    Facemasks and CV19

    No, it isn't. I haven't heard one public policy official or health care expert make any statement close to this.

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Lots of people you don't know already are paying for your various sins (and not that you're unique there as we're all far from perfect). Unless you've sworn off insurance of all kinds and self-insure your health etc., that's exactly how risk pools operate. Those who actually file claims impact...

    Trump apparently feels differently. Whatever suits one's narrative I guess. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-reveals-taking-hydroxychloroquine-coronavirus

    Trump Consciousness

    A tad bit of irony here: A paywall article at the Washington Post in the Trump thread.

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Thanks and I understand quite well your position on the evidence/data as it relates to COVID-19. That said your conclusions are your own and there are equally compelling perspectives that contradict yours that also include data, both empirical and anecdotal (as you've provided.) You may very...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    We'd probably need to start with a working definition of "facts" and how one comes to know something as "fact".

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Of course not, but I didn't suggest anything remotely hyperbolic (you provided that ;) ). Maybe I'll try this from another angle: Is it the policies themselves that you take issue with or is it the lack of compelling data on COVID-19 (perceived or otherwise)? Stated another way, is there a...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Of course it isn't a one issue matter. No one is disputing that; at least here but it was a nice strawman for your to play pinata with. I said previously I don't know what the science will tell us when this thing is all said and done. You rattled off a ton of known concerns with the policies...

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    Compliance is not an antonym of freedom Eric and, of course, you know this. But it is yet another meme I guess. Everyone's happy to have an orderly society until said order requires compliance with a rule or policy they don't support. I get it. You show me the science that says disregarding...
