Well, yeah, we've known here (this board) since long before Trump that the Republican message is well-orchestrated from somewhere or other. The right-wing Trolletariat marches in lockstep on nearly all messages. Pete/Archaic diverging on the Coronavirus is the first break I can remember in their ranks in many years. It would take quite a bit of research to find another.

Wow, that might turn out to be the solution to the whole Trump problem. Cloroquine is all its forms is dangerous stuff. It's known to cause major heart problems in a significant fraction of people who take it. I wonder if his doctors are secretly hoping he's in that group...

Heh, he's using what he learned from reading the QAnon article I posted in the GT&P board. That's one of the stock phrases of 'Q' and his followers. I have to agree that much of the nattering on this board about the big crack-down coming on the opposition to Trump reads like QAnon copypasta.

I had not heard that Kerry was abroad trying to influence anyone. There is a law against private citizens trying to interfere with US diplomatic policy. But it's never been used successfully in court, and there is strong suspicion it would be tossed out if a direct challenge reached the Supreme Court. This seems especially likely if Kerry is working for some NGO rather than acting in his own name

Um, no I don't remember that. Never did it. As a kid I just ran out in the sun when it was warm enough to play outdoors. April/May or so. :) Like most people in the 'developed' world, I got most of my lifetime sun exposure as a kid through simply being outdoors. (But then I hear that isn't true anymore, childhood has changed and even young kids live like mole people now.)

I'd say the indoors time is the problem, not the sunscreen. If we were not hiding from the sun all the time, our skin would not be so weak and susceptible to damage. And we would not have such a need for sunscreen at the slightest sun exposure. Here's a thought I've had for some time but never had the opportunity to articulate: Why is it that we understand that sitting on your butt all year

The obvious solution is transfusion. Give them more red cells to try to keep up their ability to absorb O2. This has other risks, of course, since someone else's blood might have other pathogens in it. And the sheer quantity of blood needed for even the extreme cases has got to be far beyond any demand caused by any past disaster since we've had the ability to perform transfusions safely.

Unless things get exceptionally bad, most people don't seem to regard their swollen gums as a problem. They seem to be able to just live with minor cases of gingivitis. On the other hand, chronic foot pain is likely to bring people to the doctor. So the prevalence of inflammation in the mouth is probably higher than anywhere else in the body.

The sting is very toxic, so yes people can die if they stumble into a nest and get stung multiple times. Allergy is not required, just multiple stings. But that's true of so-called 'killer bees' and a few other insects. The real problem with this new pest is that it likes to eat honey bees. And there are already problems with keeping the domestic bee population up where we need it. (It would be i

The inflammation caused by gum disease (gingivitis) can extend into other parts of your body. Cardiovascular problems may well be aggravated by poor dental hygiene, if not outright caused by it. There is also the possibility of links to Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Chronic inflammation anywhere in the body is a real risk factor for a wide range of health problems.

Indonesia? The entire country is very close to the equator. In order to be deficient in vitamin D someone living there would have to already be an invalid stuck indoors, and therefore not getting much vitamin D would be an inevitable side-effect. Did they make any effort in this study to separate people who were already sick from people who didn't get much exposure to the sun for other reasons?

More importantly, which this article doesn't bring up, the virus has been shown to be capable of infecting animals including domestic pets. Even if the animals don't experience serious symptoms, that means it can survive without human hosts. The only diseases we have successfully eradicated are single-host diseases. Smallpox, for example, does not infect any other animals. It's a human-only patho

David Frum had it covered last month: Quote At every turn, President Trump’s policy regarding coronavirus has unfolded as if guided by one rule: How can I make this crisis worse? Presidents are not all-powerful, especially not in the case of pandemic disease. There are limits to what they can do, for good or ill. But within those limits, at every juncture, Trump’s actions have ensured

The reason for farmers having to just dump food is down to the specialization of our food system. Delivering food to hotels, restaurants, or other 'customer service' outlets is very different from delivering food to grocery stores. The companies that handle the food are very different, or at least the plants that do the processing are different even if owned by the same giant corporation. Its not

You could ask the same question for the past 3 Republican presidents. And the answer was the same -- the Vice-President. Reagan was an idiot, just a smoother-talking idiot than Trump. Bush senior was the real power in that government. Bush junior was at least as much of an idiot as Reagan, but it's become cliche knowledge that VP Cheney was more powerful in that government. Ideally, Trump would h

Current legal tradition states that Congress has to suspend the writ of habeus corpus, which would then allow the President to confine people arbitrarily. The basis for this is indeed in the Constitution.

Grift is con-games, deceiving people. Granted, claiming that a drug we don't yet know is effective really is effective is a form of deception. But it's fairly bald lying rather than sneaky manipulation.
