    Remember if you will back to about 2007 and 2008. Every media outlet every day and every night had 2 things running constantly at the bottom of the screen. On one side was the death toll of Afganistan/Iraq, and the other side was the cost of the war. Miraculously, once Obama took office, you never seen or heard of those things again. I assume no more soldiers ever died and the war didn't cost any more money. Same thing here.

    No deep state? lol

    Nobody’s throwing these college athletes out of college all that same stuff is still available to them. They just don’t get to play a ****ing game.

    You mean a count of casualties while the USA was in full combat. I suggest you learn that there are plenty of things in life that you will not like, but to make another be reference to another media conspiracy is ridiculous. Time to put on the big boy pants and realize life isn't always going to go your way.

    Obviously you missed the point. Im not surprised. Why did the death count stop AS SOON AS obama took office? Did the wars stop and i missed it?

    It's not that small a price. How are seniors this year going to get into national level sports? They never will get a chance to impress NFL scouts in those big games. And I cant think of a remedy that doesn't screw over the upcoming class.

    Many kids will have everything they have worked for their entire lives crushed over this. It's not like going to college and pursuing your dreams in other fields in which one can make up without impacting the following class.

    It isn't difficult to notice you see conspiracies in everything. Your accusations are false.

    I didn't say they were losing scholarships? Now that being said what your not considering is they get an extra year but most nonpower 5 schools can afford to play an additional 25 scholarships, plus room, plus food, and stipend. This means they a lot will get get. Most scholarships are year to year except in the SEC and maybe one other conference. They will be sent home to do their schooling online, in alot of rough environments that they were escaping by playing. No daily food from the school and no stipends. The simple truth is these guys aren't very vulnerable to Covid and being on campus means they won't give it to grandma. I'm sure if they go home they'll lock themselves up to insure there's no chance of getting it though. LOL

    There are TONS of downsides of this for almost all of the college athletes, but in the grand scheme of things it IS a small price to pay for the lives it will save. Have we become so spoiled as a society that we would risk lives so we could watch a game on a saturday ?

    Why do you think you have a right to tell these guys to take the risk or not? Dang the wacko's lefties sure didn't tell the protestors not to protest????

    Don't get me started on spoiled when it comes to COVID. We could have had a shot at controlling this in the beginning if it wasn't for our spoiled nature. We needed a real lockdown of infected urban centers, but we did not do it because we wanted to send a bunch of people outside to provide completely unnecessary goods and services...with a mask. When distancing everyone for 4 weeks provided infinitely better protection than masks.

    I was beginning to think I was the only one who remembered that! The beginning of my mistrust of the media when it went away after Obama got in.

    What I posted/requested:

    Lots of people die every year.

    If you'd like to present the full medical history, alleged circumstances of death, DCs, resumes/histories/complaints for each coroner/examiner (& their political affiliations), the circumstances of each autopsy (if there was one) & other pertinent information for each alleged COVID fatality, we can start a serious conversation about each passing and its causes.

    Until then, the Democrat COVID Hoax will remain the most dangerous mass delusion since Nazism.

    Also, please provide a full range by year of national fatality numbers for the past several decades.

    With most Boomers in their 60s and 70s, we're still not seeing an explosion of fatalities due to standard life expectancy, even with the :eek: Deadly Menace :eek: of the ChiFlu.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    The 'theory' that the media has been pushing covid death and cases 24/7 for 6 months, similar to how they pushed the death and cost of Iraq & Afganistan? Or the 'theory' that the day Obama took office we mysteriously never heard about the Iraq & Afganistan cost and death count again, and I predict the day after this election the covid blitzkrieg will end?

    It’s not a conspiracy. It’s a fact. Just because you were too oblivious to notice doesn’t make it any less so. If Biden wins, guaranteed the nightly death tolls will become absent. And all we’ll hear is who is going down. Might not even see any case numbers at all. Wouldn’t want to talk about anything negative when a Democrat is in office. Maybe they’ll lie a little more and claim FL is doing worse than NY still. Maybe they’ll cover all the 1000s of dead in nursing homes that weren’t being reported? Nah. They’ll claim FL is covering up the numbers. Whoops. Egg on Cuomo's face. He’s such a poster boy for how to handle all this.

    Nice little table, with all of the filters you could ask for. As for medical history and co-morbidities, HIPPA prevents that release, so get over it. Something tells me that even if Christ himself gave you the requested information, on golden tablets, that disagreed with your narrative, you would scream, "Fake News!" CDC - TRUMP's CDC - says that there are 200,000+ excess deaths so far this year, and that the timing of those excess deaths lines up with the Trump Virus outbreak. It is what it is - deal with it.
