Re: Regarding universal healthcare...

I know, right? It's like "I'm trying to cling to the illusion of normalcy and hide behind false equivalencies so that I don't have to admit that I'm supporting the rise of authoritarianism in America" and Ed just keeps posting evidence of my complicity! Why can't he see that everything is subjectiv...

Re: Regarding universal healthcare...

It turns out that the American insurance industry has been deliberately spreading misinformation about the quality of the Canadian healthcare system. Go figure. Are you surprised? Big pharma, AMA members, hospitals and agents make a killing in the USA on healthcare. Only a fool would slit the throa...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

A dumb discussion if there ever was one. There are readily available preliminary studies of this virus available on the web for those who won’t stick their head in the sand. The studies are from the U.K....a socialist nation to American ideologues so maybe these studies are nothing but socialist jum...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

... Of course you made a claim! I said: As I understand it, once one builds an immunity to a particular strain, one cannot get that same strain again. So, does your wife normally wear masks during flu season? And you said I was wrong. I’ve yet to see any evidence that people can get the same strain...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

So I’ll take that as a “no, I have no evidence of what I just claimed.” Thanks for clearing it up. Paranoia is running amok with this virus. It’s bordering on insanity. I’m certainly not paranoid about this virus. I really don’t care one way or another but I do recognize that there’s a risk to publ...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

Infection rates are exploding, and it's not just because we're testing more. In Dade County Florida they're seeing 30%+ of their tests come back positive. Numbers are going up because in some places people stopped trying to contain the virus, and now more people are getting sick. Death rates aren't...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

You understand it wrong. The current thinking is that immunity is temporary for many - or some - who have recovered from COVID-19. Temporary immunity lasting a few weeks to a few months....just like the common cold: there is some immunity for some time but not for long. So it’s possible to be reinf...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

DB: party?... what's a party?... And you guys didn't think DB has a sense of humor! :lol: Yes, he apparently does have a sense of humor. I guess that’s normal because so does God, so it would stand to reason that his children would also. Back to the topic at hand, masks are an effective measure aga...

Re: Percentage Wearing a Mask Protect Against Covid

... Perhaps we should treat someone infected with COVID-19, the same way someone with leprosy was treated? I submit that anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 has to yell “unclean” when they walk down the street, so we can make sure people stay away(social distancing). That wouldn’t work. Onl...

Re: Covid Virus Activities Risks Rated by Danger of Each

I was never worried about this corona virus thing. My wife got it, a neighbor got it and both are still alive. Sure, some young & apparently healthy people get it and die but...that’s life. Most of those who die due to COVID-19 are aged and frail. So the Grim Reaper came early for some...you gotta d...
