    "upset" ? No, just amazed sometimes at people who reduce facts for some political gain. If you want to post something, defend it. If you cant defend it, then its BS

    Then don't post crap thats not true. YOU posted it, and you cant defend it so now your defense is "don't use it".

    You got called out. Own it FFS

    What do you want me to defend? It's on the market and It's being tried and studied. So don't tell me what to do. I'm telling you to take it easy no one is twisting your arm. So go ahead and call me out again, I love when you do that, it's erotic.

    Chloroquine may be effective, but to use it as a prophylactic, safety has to be a big factor. There's a long list of drugs that this should not be taken with or at least cautioned about, and a lot of underlying medical conditions where it would not be advisable to take it.

    The above pretty much describes those most at risk from getting very sick or dying from Coronavirus; the elderly with pre-existing conditions. So you have to be careful in just handing this stuff out.

    Shiiiiiiiiiiit... I've never seen a pharmaceutical drug who's downsides didn't outweigh its upsides. Wanna stop smoking because it's unhealthy? Ok, we can help with that. But the side effects may include sleeplessness, the urge to gamble, thoughts of suicide, nightmares, bipolar thoughts, anger, the urge to spend money, adultery, heartburn, dizziness, constipation, loss of appetite, chest pain, leg pain, skin rash, pimples, decreased testicle size, loss of hair, weight gain, liver failure, fluid on your lungs, bloating, and swelling of the tongue.

    But at least your urge to smoke will be gone.

    What do I have to defend, France had a successful trial. You're the one that has to defend your apparent assertion that that trial didn't really happen, for political reasons.

    Perhaps but a researcher in France gave it to about 40 people with the virus and every one got better in 3 days and every one had no symptoms after a week. The doctors want to downplay it because it is prudent to do so. If I get it I'm going to ask for prescription from every one until I get one. I have no problem with your skepticism but it might be better not to spread it to others.

    It has been tested. A well known researcher in France gave it to 40 some odd Covid infectees and every one was free of symptoms within a week. 100% effective in the test. We also know that it worked for SARS which was a worse epidemic than this one. Volunteer for the test in your area if you become infected.

    Would not the obvious answer be, capitalism? If they spend money developing the drug, they want to make as much money as possible to use the drug. Yes? Isn't that how capitalism works? Profit as much as possible off a product?

    You keep touting cheerleaders, when you have a pic of someone(selfie?) in a cheerleader uniform.

    RW of the 1990s are not and never have been called LW globlalists. Those are the one's that did all the trade agreements and sent mfg jobs out of country.
    Along with Billy Bob selling out workers also. He caved to Gingrich, your LW globalist. Who pushed through Reagan's trade agreement(s).

    Since we are hysterical about the epidemic, we are also hysterical about possible treatments.

    Penn is a attention whore, the very reason you know of all his so called "Help" is the very reason he shows up and looks around and goes home :)

    But I'm sure he is pleased you admire him ;)

    MDs should just prescribe this now as they see fit, it is a legal drug.
