Went to HPD today to pass on an appointment to a friend and I decided to ask what happened.  So from what one of them heard.  (Not 100% certain), might have been an IT upgrade error.  Said they did an upgrade that was supposed to improve the system but it deleted the cancel button.  So they are working on fixing it.  Cross our fingers guys!

That was my guess/assumption -- some IT guy didn't know what he/she/it was doing (lot of that going around lately!  :rofl: ).

No response on my email yet.  I hope they fix it before I get a reply.  OBE

So, J&J is now following AstraZeneca in "pausing" vaccinations over "rare" blood clotting problems.

This is one of the side-effects the "crazy conspiracy nuts" have been warning about -- not specifically, but it falls under  "we don't know, because the trials were insufficient before mass use".

"I told you so" is lacking when you've died of an aneurysm or embolism.

When you scream that mail in votes should be avoided as a party platform and tell everyone to vote in person....you tend to get what you ask for.

You still don't get it.

The integrity of the vote is the issue, NOT the outcome.

If mail-in voting is significantly more susceptible to fraud and illegal counting than in-person, then how can you honestly and rationally say that the mail-in numbers are legit?

I trust the in-person numbers way more than the mail-in numbers.  That's the issue.

And you keep saying "you get what you ask for."  That also applies to low-integrity, highly illegal vote counts under the mail-in system.  The Democrats asked for it, and they won with it.  So, yeah, keep parroting the "you get what you ask for" nonsense.  The majority was against universal mail-in, because they all know it's ripe for corruption and stealing of elections.

But, you do you.

So will the cost go down cause generally Rn's make less than Dr.'s right?

If the quality of care is the same as the doctors', then the cost should remain the same.  Insurance pays based on a common and reasonable cost, not the salary of the person performing the service.

If, however, the doctor makes more because the quality of his/her services are better, then it's a problem that less qualified nurses are being allowed to do the procedures.

This is an example of the trade-off we would get under a single-payer, government-run healthcare system.  The managers decide how much they are willing to pay, and the providers are faced with trying to provide services at those cost points which might involve seeking out lower quality sources of care.

You can't complain about the price, then turn around and complain about the quality when your cost is lower.  Good champaign at beer prices doesn't exist.

The officer who shot the driver and the Minneapolis Police Chief have both resigned from the force.

This, as the city has already had to deal with 2 nights of  riots  protests.

In that instance perhaps, depends if you view Russia as a greater threat than ISIS.  Which I would think is the case.  If not then yes, Russia would temporarily be a friend.

So, you agree that Russia is our friend, and yet you praised Hunter because his "Burisma Position Was ‘F*** You to Putin?"

What reality are you living in?

I'm not aware of this,  from what I see there is plenty of covid deaths.  Over 100k since he gained office.   

I am saying that covid liberty loss if continued from past instances is only temporary and for the sake of this nation.

Try using Google.  I'm not going to do your homework for you.

Even a temporary loss of liberty is a violation of the Constitution.  Emergency Powers have time limits.  So far, I've not seen Congress pass a bill to extend that.

And, yes, some states doing this same tyrannical BS are having the emergency orders struck down IN A COURT OF LAW AS UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

That's what we call "a clue".

Which common enemies?  To my knowledge our 3 worst is China, Russia and Iran/Muslim terrorists.

U.S and Russia Agree to Share Intelligence on Common Enemy: ISIS

Now, answer the question.

True but blindingly seeking an answer and ignoring opposite answers does.   If moon land conspiracies and anti vaxxers can find evidence that they are "right" anything is possible.  Many times the simplest answer is the right one. Occams Razor

You make a ton of assumptions and accusations on here without one bit of evidence.

Try having a discussion for once and stop lecturing.  You really suck at this whole "mature conversation" thing.

"Many times" does not mean "every time."  So, throwing out a buzz phrase doesn't add any validity to the thread or your condescending BS.

You pretend to write in general terms, but you are addressing anyone here who disagrees with you.

Just stop.

When did that change take place?

Maybe they got tired of people hoarding the appointments or selling them?  I'm guessing if people want to swap now, they will have to go down and meet in person to give their appointment away to someone else now.  That's sucks.

I sent an email to HPD after I saw the previous post and verified that an appointment I have no longer offers the option to cancel.

I asked what the process is to cancel now, and stated that self-service cancelation should remain part of the scheduling system.

I'll post what I get back.

We invaded a whole country for 9-11 and only "few" died.  Covid has claimed far more.  We also did the same thing several times in the past with other pandemics.  And after they were gone we got all our rights back.  Still waiting to get them back from 9-11. 

Would you take a 2% chance to lose your parents?

Now you think taking away our liberty for The War on Terror creates a precedence for taking away our liberty for The War on COVID?

The number of COVID deaths was inflated.  How do we know?  Now that Biden is in office, the way in which COVID deaths are categorized has been changed to a more honest method.  Someone killed in a car crash is no longer identified as a COVID-related death just because they tested positive.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

So, you believe Russia is our friend, since we have so many common enemies?

The sad truth is that when people seek answers they want, they will find it.

Wanting an answer and getting it does not indicate a wrong answer.

In essence though, I would imagine a death of a loved one because of covid would qualify for "suffering".  Having a passport or any other means of proving they are vaccinated or otherwise immune would give a very favorable percentage chance of not passing on covid.  Thus those that are vaccinated can resume "normal" life without risking others lives.  The government isn't dictating who and can't have an vaccine as it will be available to all.  There is no discrimination based on something an individual can't control.  Much like the justice system locks up drunk drivers even though they may never kill anyone but the government deemed them to be a risk to the public as a whole.  The government has determined that drunk drivers are not safe, based on evidence and science.  Even if that takes away the drunks persons freedom to drive.  The government does not take away the persons right to drink.  But what actions they can do when drunk.

You make the assumption that most "loved ones" will die if infected.

The death rate for infected patients is super low.

You're arguing for mass tyranny to prevent a very minor number of deaths.

This is not unique.  There was a video going around of a teen(?) in a subway station resisting cops, and one of them drew on him and fired.  Thought he drew his tazer.

Procedures are supposed to include one cop with their firearm drawn and the other with the taxer, just in case the tazer doesn't work.

Goes to show one more time how cops are trained to use their weapons rather than attempt to subdue by manual force.  I blame it on the recruiting policies that allow relatively physically weak candidates to become cops.  In the field, they have to rely on their weapons more than their hands.  Their perceived weakness may also increase the number of times they encounter an attacker simply because the attacker views themselves as more capable against a weaker cop.  Escalation becomes inevitable.  Were the attacker less confident, compliance would be more likely.

Because you cant identify exactly who they are, the majority of people (population) have to suffer for the few?  The majority of people don't smoke should they also suffer for the few?  For their rights to do what they want with their body?  Even if it effects others bodies?   There is a reason why you can smoke all you want in your own house, yet you can't in a restaurant.  The restricted freedoms only apply to public and private (companies/land).  They are not forced into camps or jail.  And it is the opinion of yourself that the easiest way of identifying the covid immune (passports) is a horrible idea.  Which would lead to less restrictions and being able to identify people. 

While there is no guarantee, there a reasonable chance if you follow certain protocols.  Just like the there is no guarantee not to be hit my a random meteorite,  taking to account probability is key.  Freedoms are always limited in a nation-state.  Drivers licenses. Exams, citizenship, draft, vaccination, education degrees and a billion different things can lead to varying degrees of "freedom".  Yet many people don't complain.  This is because that's how a country work.  If you are pro draft than you should be pro covid protocols.

Did I say that?  Sort of.  The liberties being taken from the unvaccinated in favor of allow only those people designated by government and whatever medical process they devise is the problem.  Nobody is "suffering" if people who are uninfected don't have a passport or QR code to tell others they are "valid".  Yet, people who may be infected can be designated "valid" because nothing the government does in terms of determining status can prevent it.  It can get close, but not exact. 

Imagine a judicial system that locks up people based on the current level of gov't COVID incompetence in determining who is safe and who is not.  You want to have your actual freedom taken away based on that system?

There are many ideas of freedom, depending what viewpoint you look at it from.   Covid rules protects the freedom of the non infected and at risk and population as a whole.

The problem is, you can't identify who the non-infected are. 

Vaccinations don't guarantee you are not infected. 

Tests do not guarantee you are not infected. 

Having been infected before doesn't guarantee you are not infected.

Wearing masks and social distancing doesn't guarantee you are not infected.

Displaying a QR code on your smartphone doesn't guarantee you are not infected.

So, if you don't know who is infected and who isn't to a certainty, you have to restrict the freedoms of everyone.  No groups in your "solution" are having their freedoms protected, because the individuals can't be accurately assigned to those groups with any reasonable degree of certainty.  The person determined to not be infected today may be infected tomorrow in spite of vaccinations, prior infection or tests taken.

« on: April 12, 2021, 08:46:52 AM »
Looks like Remington has finally ramped up their ammo production to help fill the shortage after their plants were idled due to its bankruptcy.  I think ammo prices has plateaued with more production capacity online and covid winding down. Should have better supply in the stores but prices will remain elevated for a while.

https://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2021/4/12/big-green-is-back-remington-ammo-plant-working-247

That might not be the case depending on Resident Biden's gun control actions. If he manages to tax ammo or ban online sales, it'll get worse as gun owners race to stock up even more.
