Would love to see the data on that. No sarcasm, like real SOLID data, not an opinion piece.

I didn't read the whole 18 pages because it was a lot of grenades tossed side to side.
This is my personal feeling on masks:
If the masks are so effective at preventing the spread of the virus then fine. Mandate masks and open up everything in the country. Stop shutting down the stores at 7 PM, stop limiting restaurant capacity, stop social distancing. The mask is supposed to work so open everything up and let the good times roll.

If the mask doesn't work, stop mandating it and just practice common sense.

I agree with all, with the exception of social distancing should be practiced still, as well as hand washing. Masks work but aren’t 100%, they are one tool in the fight.

The problem is, there are only 10 of us here who have any common sense. My 10 people obviously includes myself, whereas your 10 people might not.

The struggle is real.

Do the two of you have a bet on who is last man standing?

You want data in an era of misinformation. All there is, is this. Either soak it up, ignore it, or whatever. Don't care anymore. We've all pretty much moved on. Tiktok nurses and Dr. Faux Xi's are passe.

Not yet, but I'll probably check in on him tomorrow, and if he is still alive, I'll suggest it.

Don't be so angry....


I'll take a look.


And Dr. Fauci is a very intelligent man. He wrote my infectious disease textbook (almost 25) year ago.

As your health begins to inevitably fail due to socializing, will someone post for you or will we just get half a message and that's that?

I don't think he is stupid, I think he is misapplied. He should focus on treatment, not prevention or politics...or the spotlight.

I'm sure that Falsi has several agendas, including profiting off the drug patents he holds, and getting President Trump out of office.

How much blame does he shoulder for giving conflicting and outright idiotic advice that killed people?

That might work if everyone cooperated. Unfortunately the Aerovettes of the world will refuse to play along, thus ****ing it up for everyone else.

Dr. Anthony Fauci says chance of coronavirus vaccine being highly effective is ‘not great’


FFS. If a vaccine won't be effective (DUH!!!!), then let's open the country back up, and let's get back to work. When someone gets sick from COVID, give them HCQ and call it a day.

Agreed. Let's stop living like sheep afraid of everything in the world. Let's build our immune systems and stop trying to kick the can down the road. This is totally stupid what the .gov is trying to do. Are we still letting people into the country? Are airplanes still flying, cargo coming in, trains running, Canadians crossing the border? You can't eradicate a virus by keeping everyone locked up.
An oath I took long ago is making much more sense every day:

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me."

I'm afraid the domestic is becoming clearer.

Yeah, shame on me for getting tested twice a week, dipshit. How many times have YOU been tested?
