If you don't stick around to read the bill then you can join in with Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in calling the bill voter suppression. If they had to actually read the bill and vote on it that would mean that they would have to lie that it was vote suppression plus they would be shown to have voted against a voter reform bill that has been designed to reduce fraud. To maintain their credibility (for however much they have) they had no choice but to run away.
Dear NON, It may seem that way to you. Of course, the Virus unleashed by the Chinese in Wuhan on the world known as Covid-19 is real. However, there are 7.9 trillion (People on Earth) ÷ 4.1 million (died from Chinese Virus) = a miniscule percent of world population. To put that in perspective... about 60 million people die each year, anyway. The word pandemic was used to cause fear. Death, of course, is sad. However, the chance of dying from Covid-19 is relatively slim. The hoax perpetrated on the American people is all Chicken Little Brains saying, "The sky is falling," so they may abridge our dwindling rights. I mean no harm. Ashamedly, I am a lifelong democrat. Peace. -v
If you want to use numbers that's fine but over here in the UK they have been indexing - It's a great way of making shit events look smaller. Always pic the stats you want to make your point or the point you want to make. One thing the original outbreak did was to die in sunshine - very handy as no vaccine was to hand. Another thing that happened the normal death rate baseline for seasonal almost ceased to exist due to lockdown. So the numbers ceased to be accumulative. The Delta variant mutated from a hot climate and doesn't seem to be bothered. Now we have the Beta variant (is it near the USA ?). Apparently that doesn't care if it's sunny or if you're vaccinated. As for fear - yeah it's a great tool for government - so yeah they will use it but we have the internet and the ability to share what we know - too bad governments want it control and pour fake news on it.
It did start in China but blaming China I struggle with because that's the same fear psychology.
When movies need baddies they pick from your fears. hah bloody timezones lol i'm tired
Quarantines work a lot better in films - Army turns up and puts up barriers and a crowd forms "we have rights". until they get wound up and some run to the barrier - couple get shot and the rest go - " Ok! I'll go home".
If you deny covid exists then I guess your statement could be true. But the vast majority of people know it exists in some form. You're just ignorant and believe most Republicans are stupid and believe it doesn't exist, which makes you wrong as f**k.
I'm still not certain this chart is accurate. I know we had this conversation months ago, but every time I see it I want to slap the CDC across its rhetorical face...either the, "they protect others, not you!" mantra or this graphic is BS, depending on its veracity.
Many years ago, long before this pandemic, my dad (who works in medicine) told me that if the Centers for Disease Control were ever defunded or turned into a political football, then we’d know that our country is in serious decline. I thought he was being silly — why in the world would anyone attack a government agency dedicated to something as benign as fighting disease and keeping the public healthy?
Guess he knew more than I did.
Do you have generalized distrust of this chart because it’s from the CDC or any specific information with which to challenge it?
Oh gosh no. I have a great deal of respect for the CDC and their work and use their data often to support my points in discussion.
My issue is specifically with that graph. The studies we the unwashed masses have typically been shown, and the rhetoric I've heard since the pandemic began, have held that masks are effective only at trapping exhaled droplets laden with pathogens. Typically the weave on them is too thin to trap viruses themselves, and any virus floating in the air is likely free floating or stuck to minuscule dust particles. Water tends to evaporate (leaving pathogens on whatever surface it last touched) or the droplets in question are heavy enough to sink to the ground (otherwise winning the spitting contest would be harder to measure...;).
That combined with the, "They protect others, not you." makes it very hard for me to believe that any mask without a self-contained air supply does a better job of preventing you from inhaling airborne viruses than it does you from exhaling them.
Nope, because the masks being peddled were worthless t-shirt jersey material. They still are. You can't understand that though because you're still hung up on the dumb "all in this together" jingoism and the "pants stop you from peeing on me" memes.
The point of the mask was not to stop the spread, it was to encourage Karens to virtue signal and force compliance based on evening broadcast fear-porn.
Actually...they were behaving like Democrat politicians, who throughout the pandemic, have disregarded their own mandates when in public. They've been busted countless times flaunting their superiority over the masses as they break rules they themselves wrote. This is just another shining example of their hypocrisy rearing its ugly head.
