  1. Abstract Anti-intellectualism (the generalized distrust of experts and intellectuals) is an important concept in explaining the public’s engagement with advice from scientists and experts. We ask whether it has shaped the mass public’s response to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We provide evidence of a consistent connection between anti-intellectualism and COVID-19 risk perceptions, social distancing, mask usage, misperceptions and information acquisition using a representative survey of 27,615 Canadians conducted from March to July 2020. We exploit a panel component of our design
  2. It's almost like not all emergencies require cops with guns. https://www.npr.org/2021/07/23/1019704823/police-mental-health-crisis-calls-new-york-city Mental Health Response Teams Yield Better Outcomes Than Police In NYC, Data Shows
  3. https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2021-07-24/fauci-theres-no-way-the-coronavirus-was-made-with-u-s-research-funds-heres-why Fauci: ‘There’s no way’ the coronavirus was made with U.S. research funds. Here’s why
  4. Overblown. When multiple jurisdictions reported that more people died in less than a year than died from the flu in the past decade? Am I missing something? And why exactly are people being fear mongered into submission? For what gain? By who? Or will I have to do my own research even though you've obviously done the research? Again, bringing up the Spanish flu and the Black Death and comparing them to this pandemic isn't a valid point. Science, medicine are miles ahead.
  5. Why this? What are your primary sources for this? You realize that the majority of antivaxx bs on social media can be traced to a dozen accounts. https://www.npr.org/2021/05/13/996570855/disinformation-dozen-test-facebooks-twitters-ability-to-curb-vaccine-hoaxes As for your bit about the Spanish flu and the Black Death, what could possibly be the difference between then and now? Science? Modern medicine? Vaccines? Really, we're in the same boat (obviously sarcasm for that last sentence).
  6. I'll add this. It's just a choice after all. https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/unvaccinated-albertans-are-majority-of-covid-19-cases-hospitalizations-deaths-hinshaw-1.5520459 Unvaccinated Albertans are majority of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, deaths: Hinshaw
  7. I'll fix the last line for ya: if you are unvaccinated and are still acting like this virus is no big deal, that is your &^@#ing problem. Stay the &^@# home and leave people alone. That is the problem. We have far too many a-holes who are walking around like this virus is no big deal. Like their "choices" have no consequences. That their simple "choice" won't affect others. Herd immunity is a thing, and it requires all who can get vaccinated, do get vaccinated. That means the anti-vaxx morons as well. By all means necessary.
  8. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2021/07/surprise-brett-kavanaugh-wasnt-actually-vetted-before-being-given-a-lifetime-scotus-appointment SURPRISE: BRETT KAVANAUGH WASN’T ACTUALLY VETTED BEFORE BEING GIVEN A LIFETIME SCOTUS APPOINTMENT The FBI received 4,500 tips about him, with the “relevant” ones being turned over to the White House, where they were presumably ignored.
  9. I'm wondering if the NHL will do something similar as the schedule is kinda compressed due to the inclusion of an Olympic break. I wonder if teams would be able to suspend such players. Last thing we need is another Canucks outbreak to happen when vaccines will be readily available by training camp.
  10. I'd love to see what our numbers here in BC are like. Probably like the Texas numbers. https://www.texastribune.org/2021/07/21/coronavirus-texas-vaccinated-deaths/ Texas has seen nearly 9,000 COVID-19 deaths since February. All but 43 were unvaccinated people. Preliminary data shows 99.5% of COVID-related deaths in Texas were among unvaccinated people, according to the Department of State Health Services.
  11. The typical members of the 10 ish %.
  12. Especially when there are people who are begging to get theirs (can't due to availability) or people who cannot (can't due to actual medical conditions or children under 12) and these morons are like: Nope, can't do it because some jagoff in a YouTube video that is 2 hours long said a thing and doesn't provide a primary source for the thing. When asked to provide the source, these morons won't because they shouldn't have to do the research for you even though they claim they did the research.
  13. The fact that McCarthy proposed these two GOP members is telling. Thankfully Pelosi said no way. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/pelosi-jan-6-banks-jordan-b1888133.html?utm_source=reddit.com Pelosi refuses to allow Jim Jordan and Jim Banks on Capitol Riot Committee Pelosi says in a statement that the nature of the attack “demands this unprecedented decision.”
