    He was a podiatrist. Apparently he thought he was an expert in virology.

    We just got back from Rocky Mountain Nat. Park. Didn't see a single person in the park disregarding the mask mandate where it applied (indoors, and on park shuttle buses). Quite different at Denver airport. Quite a few 'rebels' wearing their masks over their chins or on their foreheads. I hope they get sick and die. Darwin rules!

    "When a polarizing national figure decides that he didn’t want to let a crisis go to waste (ie downplay it to gain short-term favor), it’s not surprising it would turn into a bone of contention. " A wise person wrote that. Some 10% of the deaths were avoidable, had proper measures been taken early enough.

    Is that a convoluted way of admitting you were wrong?

    The covid virus itself causes myocarditis with those under 30 being at higher risk. https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/wr/mm7035e5.htm
  9. When homemade zip guns kill 40,000 American a year like gun owners do with their guns (a rate per 100,000 far higher than any other western nation) I expect there would be some restrictions. You exhibit all the characteristics of a troll. One of our resident right wing trolls has gone quiet lately. I wonder. . . . . . . .

    There are charlatans in every profession. Seems your Dr. is one of them.
  11. per Paul Krugman: Let me say right away that there are some good reasons to be uneasy about minting the coin. The Fed, which is semiautonomous, might not agree to play along. The strategy might face legal challenges. And by resorting to this gimmick we would be sending the world a signal that we’re a messed-up nation having big problems governing itself — although the truth is that we are a messed-up nation thanks to the nihilism of one of our two major parties, so minting the coin would arguably just be acknowledging the obvious.

  16. Clearly it's much too easy for loonies to get guns. https://www.yahoo.com/news/maryland-man-accused-fatally-shooting-025401961.html A Maryland man is accused of fatally shooting his pharmacist brother because he thought he was 'killing people' by giving them the COVID-19 vaccine

  18. I had the same thing happen with an "Intro to Medicare" exam. I queried extra charges and found that they were because the doc asked a couple of questions that aren't on the list of topics that Medicare covers for that exam.

    Seems that getting Covid does not confer long term immunity: https://scitechdaily.com/for-unvaccinated-covid-reinfection-is-likely-can-happen-in-three-months-or-less/ “Reinfection can reasonably happen in three months or less,” said Jeffrey Townsend, the Elihu Professor of Biostatistics at the Yale School of Public Health and the study’s lead author. “Therefore, those who have been naturally infected should get vaccinated. Previous infection alone can offer very little long-term protection against subsequent infections.”
