  1. Why always the focus on Alberta, Why not look in your own back yard? Vancouver protesters rally against masks https://globalnews.ca/news/7195268/coronavirus-vancouver-anti-mask-rally/ My favourite part “I’m not anti-mask, I wear a mask 24/7, it’s called an immune system.” I mean how can you argue with such strong logic. lol
  2. My favourite part "Science is a method, not a body of facts" Seems to me like it's often presented as facts. Especially when it's often followed up with an action based on those findings. Current results are showing it helps. https://www.henryford.com/news/2020/07/hydro-treatment-study Do you not see the irony. I claim fauci makes a bold claim about something too earlier and the replies are....there was so much unknown about it at that time. Trump say something....and it's orange man bad. Might want to double check on that
  3. The US if 330 million people. Not sure what you are expecting. If Obama was still president do you think that people wouldn't be protesting? BLM and the restrictions of covid? Each state has there own governors and people in charge to decide what best for there population. Yes just like Canada, maybe you don't noticing but things were handeling much different in BC, than in Alberta or Ontario or Quebec. I didn't know the covid virus cared about the cause...As long as the cause is "just" I guess you are free from catching it..haha..... and that's where my discussing with
  4. And again, publicly stating it's nothing to worry when it's still unknown is exactly the same thing people criticize DT over. Same things happened with hydroxychloroquine and how recent results show that it does actually help with covid. Funny that quickly gets swept under the rug. Like they followed with all the protest across the country? Florida also had a 3 phased approach. It's funny because i was thinking the same thing about people putting the blame solely on Trump. Again the left from the start was deeming this to not be a serious matter. I can
  5. No it didn't and again, not shocked seeing the covid cases spike shortly after. Yet we saw countless politicians from the left encourage people to go out and exercise their right to protest. Probably not the best advice to give when we were in the midst of a highly contagious pandemic. No trump surely didn't help either, but If it was mostly trumps fault you'd likely see the largest affected cases in red states. Sure but that's not trumps fault. The issues have been around long before he was president. Biden's been in politics for 40 years, yet he's the one going t
  6. Well first of all he's a non practicing doctor not a scientist. Second of all, if he didn't know for certain he shouldn't have made such a bold claim. Telling people that masks have no purpose in a pandemic only strengthens those nut jobs validation. People flip flopping on the left is as bad as the right and it needs to be called out on both sides. To blame Trump purely on covid when the left was calling him a racist for the travel ban in march, telling people to go out side, enjoy china town, early april and even recently to exercise your right to protest in large crowds. Are we shocked
  7. haha Fauci, the guy who a few months ago, made the claim and I quote. "There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences — people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face."
  8. There’s so many other variables at play. Like travel amongst immigrant who reside in the country, like age median age and geographical of those ages like how In Norway the regional differences in the overall age level are clearly visible, with the far north and the far south characterised by a lower relative number of old age persons compared to the regions in between. distance between sparsely populated areas. and City sizes. Stockholm is 2.25x the size Oslo (Norway’s largest city) and Helsinki (Finland’s largest city). Just because they are neighbors and have similar life styles doesn’t mean
  9. There are plenty, even in this very thread people are complaining about it. Leafs fans tend to thing they are on top of the world and unstoppable...Until the first round of playoffs hits
  10. I honestly can say I haven’t seen any GOT. I was going to wait till it was over and then power through it marathon style. But then everyone said the ending ruined the whole show and not to bother haha so I decided to spend my time else where.
  11. Two scenarios. Both involve death. One puts us in a worse outlook when everything is over. The other puts us in a better outlook. If your odds are set up to lose at least focus on area with a glimmer of hope. Again I think people might be confused in what I’m stating. I’m not saying we did the wrong thing originally. I think the lockdown was good considering the unknown. Now that we have more understanding I’m saying it’s time to start opening up again. Like we are doing. My debate is with the group that thinks things need to remained closed longer. And disagrees with the govt phased
  12. Does one death hold less value? There is DIRECT correlation with unemployment rate and suicides. Causation in one results causation in the other. why is a covid death more valuable than a suicide death. Incase people still don’t understand the point. It’s a double edge sword. Prevention of one results in the loss in the other.
  13. Ireland deaths/1 million pop = 325 Netherlands deaths/1 million pop = 340 Belgium deaths/1 million pop = 801 UK deaths/1 million pop = 501 France deaths/1 million pop = 434 Those numbers don't tell much of a story, so many other variables are in play. As far as the Merrill lynch piece, that's one opinion, The federal gov't, the Alberta provincial gov't and many others disagree and believe it's going to be years, if we ever get back to the way things were. The company I consult for has a weekly call with these political parties as
  14. BS because you don't agree with a fact? https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51979654 You're right at beginning we didn't have a lot of information on the virus, so it made sense to be cautious, but we have learnt a lot since. There was a large concern about overwhelming the hospital. We have a perfect controlled test variable in Sweden that shows that concern really was over blown, their health system didn't get overwhelmed.
  15. 2-4K is close to the expected increases in suicide due to unemployment. Australia is predicting 2700 extra deaths from suicide Why do you view Covid deaths more than suicide? The other thing people seem to be forgetting a large percent of the covid deaths had overlap with elderly who would have died in near term.
  16. Which is why Sweden is great controlled test variable. This claim was the major call on why we needed lockdown. Yet Sweden has shown that not locking the country down does not overwhelm their health care and their death rate is only slightly higher. All while not shutting down there economy. and I know what the refute to this is. “All lives are important so that extra 2-4K of death caused by not locking down need to be protected“ just like stawns latest post and to that I say, locking down the country will result in deaths either way. Suicide rates are dramatically increasin
  17. Doesn’t stop them from playing gudbranson. I kid. I kid.
  18. I like those lines under the circumstances that petterson proves he’s capable of playing center. If he doesn’t, between gagner gaudette and a slim chance that we play granlund there(although I don’t see him being in the conversation as a center at this point). Gaudette would be my leading candidate for that spot (assuming his play doesn’t take a massive noes dive in camp).
  19. It doesn’t hurt to have multiple players with a similar skill set. Especially when that skill set is a two way forwards. Position plays a major roll in who a players competition is. Considering granny is a LW and gaudette is a center I don’t see them as competing against each other. I’m curious to see what your pencilled in line up looks like.
  20. Except I don’t view granlund as a center where as gagner is. I think granlund is in direct comp with dahlen. Petterson bo brock _____ Sutter virtanen sven gaudette LE schaller beagle roussel which means if gagner is waived/traded that realistically leaves the following LWer dahlen, goldi, granny, Leipsic gaunce are all competing for the final wing spot. Depending who proves themselves line could change but that’s how I’d look at the lines heading into the season.
  21. My bad.....The quality of each GDT thread directly impacts a win or loss.... more gifs = more goals.
  22. I do. But that doesn’t mean he’s not in competition with gaudette for the final center spot. I’m just confident gaudette will/should be on the roster come opening night.
