    The GOP has made science a political issue.

    COVID is a conspiracy hatched by the Democrats, the vaccine undermines individual freedoms, Fauci is on China's payroll...

    As a result, the pandemic is killing many more unvaccinated people aka Conservatives than Democrats.

    Proof that Darwinism works.

    Lies about what the GOP says, is what is political, and it needs to stop. The media likes to show snippets and then misinterpret what is being said. It's a job and it makes money but it damages out country.

    1) Covid is real but the crisis is being exaggerated, and fear is being spread, to create opportunities to enact policies and laws they could not do through normal legislative means.

    2) Vaccine "mandates" undermine individual freedom. Obviously the vaccine itself does not. Please don't drop words just to change the meaning of the sentence. That's very disingenuous and deceptive.

    3) Never heard that Fauci was on china's payroll. You are either taking something one person said and calling it a GOP claim or misinterpreting something. Fauci did give money to research in a lab in China. I find what he did questionable. I don't know of any instance where money exchanged hands the other way around.

    Sure.

    Covid killed twice as many American WW2 casualties in just two years.

    Because of the virus, the population growth curve is flat for the first time since statistics have been kept.

    Age and risk factors are important but the left just want to scare everyone into getting vaccinated because they have a pipe dream of eliminating this virus.
    Things would not have been as bad if n95 masks were stocked by our government made available and the government didn't lie about masking in the beginning to preserve masks.

    Then why risk children, with an unknown long term consequence of boosters, who are low risk of death from covid?

    Did I question Fauci! My bad. I was talking about real statistics but I guess that's blasphemy.

    1) recognizing this allows for correction next time
    2) they still aren't prioritizing the n95 masks and ensuring public has access to them and can afford them, especially if they are high risk

    In other words, our government is ran by idiots or they focus on vaccine only, because they have an alterior motive

    Just because you deny the information doesn't make it so. Did you get vaccinated? How about your family?

    Not at all.

    You still have the right to die from the virus if you like.

    Abortions may be a contributing factor to that flat curve.

    Oh, I think you’re mistaken. They do want to control our lives. How quickly they move from recommending to mandating.

    The French people pay high taxes for this fool to say he's going to make their lives miserable if they believe in "My body, my choice". Macron should be careful what he wishes for, he may just cheese them off bad enough to join together and do something about it. Marie Antoinette lost her head that way.

    All Biden has to do is mandate no more dying, have to wonder what's the holdup.

    Judging from this series of posts, you drink pseudo science, you admire snakeoil salesmen and mad scientists.
