  1. Well, it is a Biden victory. He campaigned on a 1.3T infrastructure promise, and now it is coming closer to reality. When a president helps deliver on a campaign promise, it's a victory. However, it's the kind of victory that should have no losing side. It passed the Senate through the strength of bipartisanship, and each and every person that voted for it should take it as a big win for them, their party, and their state. It's, as you said, a victory for all Americans. I'm just hoping that some of this cooperation and compromise can bleed over to other things. I'm skeptical, but one can dream.
  2. Just be aware that we don't yet know how much more transmissible the Delta variant is outdoors. Luckily the baseline for outdoor transmission is very low for the original virus, but the data isn't there yet for this new one.
  3. Well, I always look at it this way. If you're in a car wreck and they cut you out with the jaws of life, do you want the ambulance to take you to the hospital or to church? As it turns out, doctors are people too, with all the flaws that come with it. There is an old medical joke that applies here: "What do you call the person who skated by through medical school with barely-passing grades? Doctor." As for your question about why people are testing or promoting this, there could be many reasons. Maybe they're invested in a generic version of the drug and stand to make money off it. Maybe someone with COVID and taking the drug for another reason had a 'miraculous' recovery and they attributed it to the drug, and it spread from there. It's hard to say.
  4. How come people who think there isn't enough research in the COVID vaccination, despite the high level of research and testing that went into them, will immediately latch on to a drug with a barely-there small sample study? A drug that also has side effects, some of them severe. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/ivermectin-oral-tablet#side-effects Here is what the company that makes the drug has released: The drug’s manufacturer, pharma giant MSD, also warned that its analysis of ivermectin identified “no scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against Covid-19 from pre-clinical studies”, “no meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with Covid-19 disease” and “a concerning lack of safety data” in most studies. Stay safe out there...
  5. The people working in our clean room at work don't seem to mind that they've been wearing masks at work for decades.
  6. At work? No, not at all. I don't see it any different than wearing a hard hat, safety glasses, or a shoe with a steel toe. I wouldn't push any of that that on someone in their personal life, but it's reasonable for working a job.
  7. Think of it in terms of PPE. You have a choice between the mask PPE and the vaccination PPE. That really doesn't seem like an unreasonable thing for a company to ask.
  8. It probably does come down to line play, and some bad coaching. The timeout at the end of the half and the lack of quick plays to make up for the online deficiencies jump to mind.
  9. They were bad, his receivers were dropping balls, the defense couldn't stop TB. Mohomes was the only player on that team in super bowl gear.
  10. It's a tough topic. I do think being challenged in court is a good thing, but that's only the legality of the EO and not the good or harm it could bring to the US. If you make it something congress can overturn, then you are reducing the power of the executive branch. Maybe a 2/3 majority in both Senate and House would make sense, to avoid the absolute worst of the potential EOs. The largest obstacle imo is that people love the EO power when their person is in power and hate it when it isn't. As for undoing what a former president did, I'm not sure there is a good fix. Maybe it means that for important things, make it legislation instead of an EO.
  11. Hey, my only point was that Hilary officially conceded. She never attacked specific states and told them to find the votes she needed. I'm with you on the liberal sore loser stuff, it was all over Fox news how Democrats were whining about a fair election, they need to suck it up, there was no fraud, etc, etc, similar to the Republican whining this year. The problem with these "Hypocrisy!" messages is that they always apply to both sides.
