    Well a flu killed the equivalent of 600,000 people in the US in one month. So yeah, so not quite as bad a flu.

    Whose numbers should one believe? I've sent out more than the usual number of sympathy cards and email notes this year. I believe what I have seen. YMMV.

    All the chuckleheads with the inside scoop from their underground Facebook news outlets will deny it until their dying breath. Their mother could die of it, and still it’s an overblown conspiracy to overthrow their greatest president in American history by Soros and his bilderburger team.

    This kind of alternate reality denialism is buying sleepy uncle Joe votes just as fast as BLM rioters are buying Trump votes. Let’s see which band of dimwits gets to the finish line first.

    ETA: I anticipate charge of ‘ad hominem’. I’d burn up the Latin dictionary trying to list the logical fallacies in this thread so far, and that’s just 3 pages.

    And here in central FL, Covid also causes motorcycle accidents / death. I know this is true because Dr. Raul Pino says its so...

    This thread highlights the ability of some people to believe that anything they see in print is a fact...

    There is just no reason to trust any numbers at this point. Too many issues with reporting/testing, ulterior motives and known dishonest practices. If they can test for antibodies in the future, I may believe those studies.

    If it is printed by the major teaching hospitals, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, et al., and the CDC I will trust it.

    What reference sources are you trusting?

    I don't trust anything anymore...I've decided its mother nature at work now. It is what it is. I will not live in fear. I am just gonna do my daily routine out here in the woods. All you that live in big towns have a different reality, different experiences, and form different beliefs.

    I do believe this is/was a deliberate attack on the world by the Chinese in an effort to sow pandemonium throughout the global economies and get to the point where the US dollar is no longer the currency used by central banks. I believe it is now in the hands of mother nature and there isn't a darn thing anyone can do about it.

    It will run its course. If it takes me or mine so be it. It will suck, but so does most of life these days. I will never forgive Whitmer or the democrats for putting us in such a devisive state of mind that I can not trust anything any branch of the government tells us. I will never forgive my state government for making it impossible for loved ones to comfort dying family.

    No you won't...
    Unless they tell you something you want to believe...
    Crazy Al's YouTube page, and anything else that fits their preselected vision on what's "right"

    If it is published, it's a fact.
