You've run from every single one of my questions., Why is that? No conviction in your position? Or you understand it is indefensible?
all you've really done is prove you're an anti-vaxxer and you don't care how many Americans die during this pandemic.


how about this. how about you and i co-author a thread telling everyone to wear a mask all the time since you don't want people vaccinated (but wearing masks (harmless) will save some lives). deal?

Nope. You once again display your complete lack of understanding of the issue.

and you don't care how many Americans die during this pandemic.
Curious - is it possible for you to make the case for your position with personal invective and hyperbole?

Because, once again, it would do no good becasue your simple binary thinking is not conducive to solving what is a complex problem.

so you're also, along with being an anti-vaxxer, turning down my offer to promote mask use to save American families from losing loved ones?

yeah. that's a shocker.

Being that this is a year old now - do we have any autopsy findings? One doctor referred to this as a 1 in a million case, extremely rare, and unusual. Did they find out what made it so?

I'm not anti-vax - I'm anti lies being told in an attempt to force people to do something.

I'm also about not skewing medical records - and we don't have his medical records to skew so many assumptions are being made that should never be made.

From an article about the family - "The Dorrills said doctors are performing an autopsy on Chad to learn more about why the virus progressed so quickly."

When you consider that his paralysis doesn't even make a blip on the radar of known Covid symptoms, asking for more information before jumping to conclusions is prudent.

It doesn't diminish the tragedy of his death but his death shouldn't be used as a "got cha" either - that's just vile.

Thanks for answering my question - you are incapable of supporting your position and instead resort personal invective and hyperbole. Too bad. You occasionally display some understanding and intelligence. Something sorely lacking on the left hand side of the aisle here.

No, I said Obama's plan was ill conceived and ill implemented. You're conjuring what you want to hear that's totally different from what I've actually said.

okay, let's take the good parts of her plan (eating right and exercising) and coauthor a thread promoting those things for kids.

ok?

If it did I would. But it won't. In fact, the CDC's 13th flip flop on masks - now the vaccinated are told they have to wear masks, even outdoors, completely undermines the public's confidence in the vaccine and the vaccine hesitant are much less likely to get vaccinated.

Dude. Just admit to yourself that you're an anti vaxer and you're against safety like wearing masks and saving lives.

You're not savy enough to play the game you're playing.

I thought this was about saving lives? No? Really?

Besides 73% of all Covid deaths were obese - you really can't separate the two.

No, it's 73% that were overweight or obese, not just obese, which also happens to be exactly the percentage of adult Americans who are overweight or obese.

sorry.

Dudette.

How odd it is that if I called you H-n, or But---cup, or Sw--tie then I would be suspended. But DP plays by their own set of rules. Oh, and do not construe that to mean I am calling your any of those - they are just examples of forbidden terms.

Not sure where you're getting your numbers but they don't match CDC.

QED. Personal invective is all you have. Sad.

I'm really gonna try to not call you dude or dudette anymore since it seems to be offensive to you. I've never had that request before so if I slip up let me know.

I've offered you and another guy to coauthor threads to keep more Americans alive

Both of you guys refused.

Both of you guys are Trump Republicans. I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

No need for a new thread. Nothing I've said here would change on a new one - this one is just fine.

Blue pill Nemo - the blue pull.
I suspect you meant to say "blue pill Neo". For a second I was wondering what pill Nemo had to swallow in Finding Nemo.
;)

And you thought masks usage getting people vaccinated was hard to implement? Wait until you have to tell people to put down the fast food, eat better, and get off the couch take the blue pill.
