    Sticking your hands on a hot burner repeatedly and expecting a different result is either ignorance or insanity.
    Apparently this virus is scoring higher on a cognitive test than a good many human beings.
    But the truth is, the virus does not give a damn about your conspiracy theories and stupidly hysterical videos, and your contempt for science will ultimately kill you.
    And the virus doesn't care about that either, by the way.
    I don't know that there's a crisis.

    I think people are put off by your Hysteria. It didn't do anything at the first 3 months it's not going to do any good now.

    Lockdowns didn't work. Some event happens and people go out and riot and then one incubation period Later we have a spike.

    We can't lock down our people that's a violation of several constitutional rights. yes I value my constitutional rights over being free from covid-19.

    I think people are put off by your anti-science approach, which reflects a personal issue.
    Stating that "It is simply impossible to put the cart (reopening the economy) before the horse" is not hysteria, it is an immutable fact, as evidenced by our miserable performance compared to the rest of the world.

    You cannot accept that we are acting like idiots.
    That's not hysteria, that's a personality flaw. You are anti-science, and the virus doesn't give a rat's ass if you are or aren't.
    The lockdown didn't do anything the first three months because there was no lockdown the first TWO months.
    You're not even keeping up with the timeline of events.
    The lockdown should have happened in early March, and it would have been largely over by now.
    Other countries are now simply addressing hot spot flareups instead of wholesale shutdowns. We still seem unable to accept the fact that we never exited the first phase of the pandemic, so instead of bracing for the second wave, we've been locked in an extended first wave which has lasted five months.

    Contrary to your opinion, the government does have the authority to enforce public health emergency directives.
    That has been debated to death and proven already here several times, so I don't intend to launch a sixty page rehash of stuff that's already been beaten to death.

    The governments, both state and federal, enacted harsh measures to force people to follow measures during the 1918 flu pandemic, and slackers (the 1918 term for mask rebels) were fined, jailed, isolated, quarantined and otherwise penalized when their actions posed a direct threat to the general public.

    In fact, even BEFORE the 1918 pandemic, one Mary Mallon aka Typhoid Mary, was quarantined for the rest of her life because she refused to undergo treatment for her raging case of typhoid fever, which in her was asymptomatic but which killed DOZENS of people she worked for.

    So your nonsense about "valuing your constitutional rights" is the equivalent of one bison entering the watering hold, defecating in it and giving the rest of the herd the stinkeye.
    In the animal world that quite logically and understandably evokes a herd response.
    That's a reference to the fact that rights have to exist in the natural world as well as the legal one, and the natural world is going to impose certain limitations on them from time to time when basic survival takes precedence, survival of the whole, that is.

    Your constitutional rights are not in danger, you're being temporarily restricted due to the emergency, which you probably think is some kind of conspiracy.
    Ahhh yes, your superpower, the power to take anything you do not understand and convert it to a conspiracy.
    That is not much of a superpower, I'm afraid.

    And it is a threat to the species AND the economy, because as I stated, one can't put the cart in front of the horse.

    We simply acted like idiots, plain and simple.

    Everyone that disagrees with you is anti-science.

    Typical narcissism of someone who doesn't want to think critically.

    so I'm not interested in conversations with such bigotry.

    Quit making this about me, everyone who disagrees with scientists is anti-science.
    This is about you and your ego.
    Your ego is blocking your ability to think critically, and that's on you.

    Scientists often disagree with one another.

    It's only anti science if you disagree with it.

    Your banal statements are laughable.

    What do you call a person who is unable to distinguish between a scientist paid to write and say what those who hire him tell him to, and a scientist with dignity and integrity?

    Re: Never Ending Covid

    How do you distinguish between the scientist paid to write and say what those who hire him tell him to and the scientist who writes with dignity and integrity?

    - For some if it is a scientist who works for the Govt they are writing what they are being told to do.
    - For some it is a scientist who works for a private research company and the findings don't agree with readers view, someone must have told them to write that.
    - If the paper agrees with the persons view of CV19, then the author must be a scientist of dignity and integrity.

    All boils down to what sources a reader wants to accept as creditable.
