    No, I can assure you I didn't lie and don't appreciate the accusation. I saw the article and it was connecting to Spring Break and I didn't say it was exploding and neither did the article. It simply stated it had increased and that may have just been in that area of the state and a spike more than an incline. I did not see any follow ups to that and I never drew any conclusions from that article. I saw it and passed it along, fwiw.

    That's what I think too. I can see masks being of some help in crowded situations, like a subway car. But once they shut down large gatherings, what use are they then?

    I can't figure this out, CC. It was easy to check on. Why the misinformation? Was my google search incorrect?

    Apologies for upsetting you.

    I didn't search for it, it was there in my morning news and I didn't drill down on it and gather any details, just the headline and a para in on it and it was about spring break.

    I can assure you it was there, the authenticity of it? Have no idea if that was fact and maybe they posted it and took it down. I never saw any follow up on it and at the time it wasn't a thing anyway. I don't care about anything in FL.

    It would not be the first time I've seen something on Google News that suddenly disappeared and was never seen again. It's like watching the news on a mass shooting unfold, the numbers are crazy and in a constant state of flux until the entire story is told but accuracy takes a backseat to speed in the national news.

    Don't like the word "liar" used toward me. Yeah, that will upset me pretty fast.

    There was no malicious intent or private agenda, I share a lot of what I read on Google and MSN News here. Like this: CDC report: Georgia schools where teachers wore masks had lower COVID infection rate (ajc.com)

    I am sure this will fan the flames of those in the "masks don't work" camp. Like to see them go in for major surgery and just tell everyone in the OR to relax and take off their masks.

    Coach, you called people ignorant that don't agree w/ you. I agree that the name calling should cease. Being called ignorant upsets me pretty fast.

    If that's the way you read it, that's not what I was saying.

    You did say that at one point, don't remember where.

    Anyway, looks looks to me as if the site you looked at was lying, not you. The incorrect info was posted to further an agenda by someone, it appears, but it wasn't you who lied, so it wasn't you I was calling a liar.

    Apologies.

    It is not too bad. I listen to a lot of podcast on both my drive to work and my drive home. I leave the house around 4:20 every morning so there is very little traffic. If I leave work by 4 PM the traffic going home is not too bad. The wort part is the gas. I an driving a full size truck for now. If we do not take up my companies offer for the moving package I will be purchasing a vehicle that gets better gas mileage. We have until the end of July to decide if we want to move or not.

    I meant to post something about this a few days ago but it was the weekend and then yesterday was hella busy. Anyhow, I believe it was on the 17th, Texas reported Zero Covid Related Deaths. Yesterday, 4 Deaths.

    Way to go Texas, Good on you!

    Same goes for Arizona, Minnesota and Massachusetts.

    I think it's important to keep an eye on vaccination schedules here for young adults etc. I heard a report that anywhere from 60 to 80 percent of all young people who are getting vaccinated are showing reactions to it. That could possibly be driving numbers as well. Would be interesting to see data around where and when vaccinations are happening and reported increases.

    No way I would let my children get vaxed. No way. The virus presents almost zero threat to them. Vax prolly presents more threat.

    If anyone listened to that TX senate hearing, a doctor was testifying that a multitude of students were coming in w/ a pile of issues from the vax. Texas Tech, I think.

    Oh, and to be clear, I am pro vaccinations. Vaccinations have provided a ton of benefits for mankind. I'm against using a vax that hasn't been tested/approved to the degree it needs to be, and for a disease that isn't all that dangerous to kids.

    I'd ask the opposite question. Exactly what would one's reasoning be to get this vax for your kid? It doesn't necessarily keep them safer, and according to reports(TX senate, doctors testifying) may make them sick. And for no reason. I'm asking seriously, because I don't understand why anyone would get a child vaxed under these circumstances.

    The vaccine hasn't been given use authorization for anyone under 12 though, so for children under 12, this isn't a question that needs to be asked. 12-18 you can ask that all you want. But for children under 12, it is illegal to give them the vaccine.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...s-teen-hospitalization-rates-rise/7543129002/

    This is a recent article about covid, vaccines, and teens. I am in full agreement that it's significantly less of a danger to teenagers than adults. Just providing context to your post.

    Edit: According to the article, Moderna and JNJ vaccines only authorized for 18+ year olds.

    My thoughts exactly. I am not anti-vax but definitely anti untested vax for a a disease with a 99.8% survival rate. The risk for children for this disease is almost nil so vaccinating them with basically untested vaccines is beyond stupid.

    That's a good article, as it discusses both pros and cons.

    They address the question of the vax possibly doing more harm than good, as Covid presents very little danger to that age group.

    There was no attempt at any treatments. Just "Here's a vaccine!" Guilt trip, guilt trip, guilt trip, here, it's safe, virtual signal....
    In fact, the groups of health professionals that suggested treatments were silenced. Why?

    That should concern more people than it does.

    And I agree w/ that. They're pushing the vax way too hard, and for a disease that's almost over. Why? Very strange stuff.

    There were available treatments, I want to say back in 2005. I'll have to look. The previous SARS they used chloroquine as a treatment, but if I remember right, they banned it or something.
    They're pushing the vaccine because it's a money maker. What do you do when you want to sell more of something? Marketing. It's not any different than a commercial that persuades a person to get boner pills by offering commercials.
