    I know it can be entertaining, but why engage with someone who isn't actually being serious

    Even crazier is the fact that the BidenHarris government is saying the same thing Lanny is saying, and half the populace eats it up like lemmings.

    Be grateful you don’t have “underlying” conditions. You’d almost certainly think differently if you did. And hope that you don’t develop a life threatening medical issue, because if you do, you are likely shit out of luck. How many more people have to die due to Covid related ignorance and recalcitrance??? I personally don’t need to do my “research” to know a vaccine will protect me. It’s simple common sense. Nothing more, nothing less. Politics has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    Or you don't understand it, and you are misinterpreting it, and your idea of experts and relevant background is lacking in credibility...

    As I stepped away from the computer to take a phone call, I was literally about to ask if anyone had ever seen Maris and johnnyboy in the same room at the same time, but here they are. :NOTMARIS:

    Deliberate intellectual laziness is nothing to brag about, nor will it lend credibility to your opinions.

    You just like to argue for the sake of arguing. I just passed through your neck of the woods and I didn’t think it was THAT boring. Maybe you should join a book club or something. Anything to get you out of your cave……

    Posting this again because I think it got drown out by the exact divisiveness I mentioned.

    I think a lot of contention, not just around here, is between some people that have had a covid case and believe that infection provides equal or better immune responses than they would have if they got the vaccine, and other people saying things like "if you don't get the vaccine you're going to kill me". I know, that is a generalization. There is just a lot of area in between those two positions and it has become pretty divisive. I don't think I've had covid, but I'm not 100% sure. I would have gotten the vaccine either way, but that's just me. Idk, here's a good article I read about it and explains the differences in how some geographic areas are addressing it and specifically the pros/cons of the USA's approach.

    e_blazer is exactly right. "Research" isn't a Google search. Google is fine when you want driving directions or information on rooting bay leaf cuttings or where to buy a variety of yarn. Not knocking Google. But it's not scientific research. Van Gundy was also right.

    Wha??? You mean inherent intelligence is not a virtue???? Who knew?? Then I guess I need to get in line with the rest of the “Intelligent” Trump lemmings hurling themselves off a cliff. But THAT would be actually be “intellectual laziness”…….

    My biggest problem isn't with people who are confused or unable to understand the science but rather with the ignorant propoganda that those people spout that is politically fueled....if you want to do research don't limit yourself to US political arguments....look at global science....ask New Zealander about the science and realize Biden has no more to do with their life and choice than Tucker Carlson......ask your doctor or surgeon, etc.....or move to N Korea where democrats won't kill you with conspiracy chips....choices ....we have always had an in house propoganda promoter here and probably always will have.

    Legitimate epidemiologists are the highest bar of credibility when dealing with an epidemic. They are who I confirm my stances with when it comes to epidemics and pandemics.

    The people I'm referring to (like you) do not.

    Nothing, or everything. Definitely one of those two.
