  1. While it is primarily the former, to be fair, I do get caught up in the latter. That said BillV is still wrong.
  2. “There has been no confirmed case of the new mutant strain spreading locally here -- so far. But it’s only a matter of time (before that happens),” he said.“This is why immunization efforts must proceed as promptly as possible. We’re in a race against time,” he said” Ardern’s leadership is now indelibly tied to Covid-19. That’s a blessing But, it’s also a curse. If the Government fails to implement a swift and effective immunisation programme, leaving New Zealand closed off as other populations start to return to some form of normality, voters will very quickly lose patience. Gratitude at Ardern’s measures to keep Covid out will easily be replaced with irritation at the restrictions keeping Kiwis locked in. So Bill, wrong and wrong again.
  3. I wasn’t aware he entered the contest. The Democrats took the measure of Harris and found her wanting. (She claimed misogyny and racism)
  4. I hope you realize the ONLY way out of this mess is through Hurd immunity. Either by exposure (actually catching the virus) or vaccination. The masking, social distancing, and lockdowns only drag out the inevitable while crippling people’s livelihoods.
  5. So people only voted for Biden because they hated Trump? That makes two elections in a row where hate won. I hope we can do better next time.
  6. Thanks man, we had some good times back in C-burg. I’m just having fun. Brenthutch is my acerbic, snarky and provocative alter ego. I probably (maybe definitely) take it too far sometimes, so I apologize for that. I was critical of Trump, even said he had the intelligence of an earthworm. I will be critical of Biden as well.
  7. This thread is “Biden’s critics corner” right? Biden has only been in office a few days so his damage to the country has been limited.
  8. Yet he stayed in after loosing IA, NH and NV. It is almost as if he was put up as a sacrificial lamb as a Trump landslide victory was assured given the state of the economy and progress on mid-east peace. Yup he was so popular that he lost the first three contests and chose a VP who garnered ZERO votes in the primaries. Makes perfect sense.
  9. Obama received 65,915,793 votes Biden received 81,281,502 votes Biden’s popularity exceeds Obama’s by more than fifteen million votes.
  10. He was demonstrably more popular than Obama, how can you say he was the worst?
  11. Are you kidding me? Biden is WAY more popular than even Obama, he received eleven million more votes. With control of both houses and a clear mandate I look forward to the implementation of bold progressive policies that will heal our country, bring world peace and stop bad weather.
  12. Just listening to NPR and they had a Dr. on and he complained that the goal of a hundred million vaccinations in one hundred days was not ambitious enough as we were already on track to hit that goal with the system currently in place.
  13. Yes, girl on girl mud wrestling is much more entertaining.
  14. Apparently Gavin Newsom has developed the California variant, but not to worry Biden is in office and now everything is going to be great.
  15. Any questions?
  16. No comment on men taking away opportunities from women with Biden’s trans policy?
  17. Somebody needs to tell Biden that we can stop COVID with lockdowns because he said “there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.”
  18. “there’s nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic in the next several months.” Joe Biden
  19. Almost ALL of our (the US) reduction in CO2 emissions can be attributed to natural gas replacing coal for power generation. Of course this was only possible because of the fracking revolution.
  20. Fun fact, our CO2 emissions were lower after we left the Paris Agreement than while we were still in. 2017- 5131 million tons 2015- 5263 million tons
  21. Not trolling, just giving some folks a needed reality check. The only thing Biden climate policies will lead to is higher energy costs for Americans. I will guarantee, in four years atmospheric levels of CO2 will be higher than they are today.
  22. Replace “bear patrol” with lockdowns and “bear” with virus.
  23. And as long as the best argument against me is an overlooked auto fill, I win.
  24. “there is no evidence that more restrictive nonpharmaceutical interventions (“lockdowns”) contributed substantially to bending the curve of new cases in England, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, or the United States in early 2020” “Inferences on effects of NPIs are non-robust and highly sensitive to model specification. Claimed benefits of lockdown appear grossly exaggerated.” ”government actions such as border closures, full lockdowns, and a high rate of COVID-19 testing were not associated with statistically significant reductions in the number of critical cases or overall mortality” ”Given that the evidence reveals that the Corona disease declines even without a complete lockdown, it is recommendable to reverse the current policy and remove the lockdown” ”stay at home orders, closure of all non-essential businesses and requiring the wearing of facemasks or coverings in public was not associated with any independent additional impact” ”these strategies might not have saved any life in western Europe. We also show that neighboring countries applying less restrictive social distancing measures … experience a very similar time evolution of the epidemic.” “We show that [lockdown] is modestly superior in saving lives compared to [focused protection], but with tremendous costs to prevent one case of death. This might result in overwhelming economic effects that are expected to increase future death toll” ”For example, the data…shows a decrease in infection rates after countries eased...lockdowns with >99% statistical significance. Indeed...infection rates have declined after reopening even after allowing for an appropriate measurement lag. This means that the pandemic and COVID-19 likely have its own dynamics unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures that were being implemented.” ”Comparing weekly mortality in 24 European countries, the findings in this paper suggest that more severe lockdown policies have not been associated with lower mortality. In other words, the lockdowns have not worked as intended”
