    I can’t believe the democrats made Trump go golfing while a global pandemic was bearing down in the US. Someone should do something

    Trump doesn't need any help looking bad. Anyone that wants him to, doesn't really need to expend any additional effort or energy. That plane is already on autopilot.

    I can't believe the democrats were so focused on their useless impeachment instead of the pandemic and then this putting.
    So... They don't know if it doesn't work then right?
    The drugs have been used for 80+ years and then because the BAD ORANGE MAN says it's good it's pulled off the shelves.
    The drug wasn't a danger to people, plain and simple.

    The problem is your Orange man isn't a doctor, hasn't played on one TV, and hasn't even stayed in a Holiday Inn, so his qualifications on this are less than zero, and more often than not makes recommendations to increase stock prices. It was pulled off the shelves because there were too many fucking idiots thinking that if the tool in office said a little is good, then obviously a lot is better. Nitro is also a drug that has been used for years. Why not go try some of that too and see how well it works for something completely unrelated and untested.

    The first rule of "Make RC Better" is to ignore baiting articles like this one from boing - it doesn't even say what he says it says. Trying to convince him that his facts and opinions might be wrong is a futile game and, as he's fully admitted, he's only doing it to bait people and try to get them riled up. In other words, it's a waste of time and space to engage with him, no matter the bait he tries to throw out there.

    And here is cheese nuts with nothing to add.
    The doctors faked their data and published their findings in two well known medical journals and why did they do it because ORANGE MAN BAD.
    They are probably friends with Moonbat.
    This drug has been in use since the 50's and now all of a sudden it's bad? It's also listed on the WHO's essential medicine list they put people's lives at risk by doing this.
    I don't care what political strip you are that's just pure evil.

    You seem to have a really hard time comprehending what you read, so I'm going to break it down for you.

    The WHO lists it as an essential medicine for rheumatoid joint disorders in 200mg doses per day. People were taking 600mg+ for covid

    Trump tweeted that if you mix hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin (Azithromycin wasnt even mentioned in the article you posted) it would be a "game changer" , but both of these medications have major side effects for the heart including arrythmia. What group of people are high risk for covid? People with heart disease. Thats incredibly incredibly dangerous.

    No one is saying it doesnt work, people are saying its dangerous to tote untested drugs, together as a be all and end all cure for covid. The WHO has resumed clinical trials, so we will find out soon.


    Hope this helps, all the information above was gained from unbiased sources, most that were around before Trump was a C list reality TV star.

    I am going to type nice and slow for you so keep up.
    You may need to go read the articles posted dimwit so you know what is going on, I am not arguing about what Trump said or didn't say. or dosage or dumb asses taking aquarium cleaning chemicals and killing themselves and side effects (like every drug has). I am just posting this article, Cock Knuckle. It's about the doctors publishing false data to make the ORANGE MAN look bad.

    It’s amazing what political discussion brings out in people. Just an observation.

    Like a lot of acquaintances on FB, rc is teetering on getting unfriended due to the amount of negativity and personal attacks. Life's too short.

    I just added the aquarium cleaner before you or cheese dog brought it up because one of you would have along with the bleach or lysol. It's like you're cheddar's little lap dog now it's really cute.
    If you love him so much why don't you marry him :rofl3:Is that the best you got?
    You are confusing my anger young Aaron with amusement. I just posted an article and look who came out to play.
    Moonbat is catching on.
    Did you have any trouble with any of the big words in here?
    If you're having trouble you might want to head over to the parts counter and get one of them to sound them out for you.

    Resorting to personal attacks because you have no rebuttal, and you can’t even summon the brainpower to make them original. Guess you’re done here.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

    NS announced one additional death and one new case yesterday. Still reconciling numbers. Total number of recovered cases is unknown at this point.

    Yesterday's press release today

    You mean like playing RC's pile on game in the gun control thread where you guys were doing the same to me?
    Nice liberal double standards, you should run for office.
    I thought that was quite original considering the subject matter and all I had to work with. I think I am just coming out of my shell on here and have been quiet for way too long.
    You guess I am done here?
    What makes you decide what I am going to do?

    I liked quiet boing better. You're basically just calling people names when they don't agree with you. Kind of childish.

    Wherever you lie in a political spectrum, I believe one should follow as many sources as possible to attempt to get the truest version of the story.

    I stick to the facts, never mind inserting emotion into it. Also I don't buy into those news sites that have such an obvious bias that it taints the rest of the info.

    FOX News is just a propaganda machine. CNN isn't really that much better anymore, they used to be okay over 10 years ago. MSNBC used to be okay, but with Cheeto McGee running the show down there they aren't that good anymore either.

    I guess the point would be stick to the actual truth as best you can find it, not one that conveniently makes you feel better when you say it.

    If that somehow makes most of us liberals... then I guess we're liberals.

    Once again, back at the ranch, NS has reconciled the numbers! Overstatement of recovered cases seems to be the cause.

    Today's press release

    There are no licensed long-term care homes in Nova Scotia with active cases of COVID-19.
