He was interviewed by a reporter named Drea Humphrey who is also an anti-masker...disappointed by his interview and the other anti-maskers...

Lol he is even wearing the Trump signature red tie. I find it mind boggling how many Canadians that have been sucked into the Trump vortex.

I do too.  It seems antithesis of what Canadians stand for.  But I guess I presume too much. 

 

What is puzzling also is how they feel compelled to lump all their beliefs under one umbrella.  ie. if you believe one right wing belief, even something sensible like lower taxes as an example, it seems you also believe, or are steered to believe, in all other con beliefs,  outlawing abortions (as Donnelly does) and today they also accept the whacky QAnon conspiracy theories too.  And also worship Trump, a vulgar, racist, sexist, narcissistic, grifter, incompetent man.baby that can't stop whining and feeling sorry for himself. What leadership material! One of the wacky CT is that masks are only a communist plot to take away our freedoms, and has nothing to do with some hyped up flu that liberals are inventing to shut down the economy. Because liberals hate good economies I guess?  Can't be for any other reason like helping to fight COVID (and get into a good economy sooner).  Because this group of anti-mask selfish a-holes think everyone must also be a selfish a-hole like them.  Its part of their negative suspicious view of their fellow Canadians.  But I'm shocked at the fact we get such a crowd to a covidiot rally like this.

 

I never would have guessed Donnelly would be a red hat. That is one silver lining of the Trump era, all the covidiots and Trumptards are exposing themselves for what they are.  Looks can be deceiving.  My innocent "little" sister, an evangelical Christian, listens to American far right blowhard talk radio and thinks poor Trumpy is being unfairly attacked.  Sad to see her like that, seems also the antithesis of her personality growing up. But now I know she always had that in her.  Its scary because I understand better now how easy it is for Fascism to take hold and be supported by who you thought were "good" people. How fragile Democracy is, and how hard we have to remain vigil for it.

Wow, judge much?

It's the damn Fox network. I have the odd (really odd!) friend who spouts the same nonsense as Trump and they say they get all their info from Fox. It's unbelievable and scary how many gullible people there are who buy into the lies and conspiracy theories. God bless America.

LOL at this thread. The discussion has gone like the virus... it peaks, then flattens, and peaks again .. and repeat. I got infected in the first wave and walked. Time for a vaccine?

I wonder how the "younger generation" would respond if only old folk had guns and walked around shooting at random young folk. 

I'm old so why should I care about young people?

 

The inability to think beyond oneself seems to be growing in society. Unfortunately, even after this pandemic, I expect that type of thinking to increase.

it doesn't have to be that extreme, next time it might be a virus that effects the young far more than the old.

 

Kids are going to be kids. Its the X's and boomers that know better that still do things like go to AB for hockey tourney's that irk me.

Wow, I thought all the "hate Jake" and "hate JB" threads brought out the worst of CDC. But this thread has some truly disgusting people showing their colours. 

 

"D'uh, everyone's entitled to their own viewpoint, and it only makes sense to let the old and the weak die, I'm young and healthy, not my problem."

Seriously. Makes me wonder who raised these ignorant, selfish bigots.

I blame the modern education system.. too busy teaching concepts that have no real world value. 

 

People should be taught more about sociology, psychology, and personal finance. 

 

What is person supposed do in the real world with the Quadratic Formula?

Worst thing for the ruling class is educated people, harder to control.

I agree. Covid has a much higher spread rate, but that doesn't mean that you can't just throw out questions of morality when you cannot feasibly say where to draw the line between standard natural selection VS this new pandemic. Is it fair to say you were okay with H1n1 killing the hundreds of thousands it did and walking around without a mask? 

H1N1 actually originated in the US and only has 12,469 deaths attributed to it over the first year within that country. H1N1 was more contagious (estimated at 60.8 million cases in the US first year) than standard influenza and was harder on the young rather than the elderly. For perspective, in 2019 influenza resulted in 34k deaths. So H1N1 resulted in more cases and hospitalizations than standard influenza but fewer deaths. So it's a rather poor comparison considering the US is approaching 300k Covid deaths in less than a year.

This seems like a backwords theory. I would argue the exact opposite. On average educated people tend to make more money the uneducated people. People with less income are far easier to control through use of debt then people who have money. Uneducated people are easy to control because you can convince them they have the control, when they have none. Proof of concept is the entire bottom of the American reuplican pyramid. Money equals freedom, and education opens the door to a higher possibility of obtaining more money.

The education system has little to do with the selfishness. I attribute the selfishness  at least in part to smaller families and parents spoiling kids more now than they could/did with larger families.

H1N1 affected more young people than it did old people. Like this Coronavirus being different from other ones this variation of H1N1(Swine Flu) was different than other H1N1 flus. Older people had more immunities likely due to being exposed to other H1N1 viruses at some point in their lifetimes while younger people didn't have these sort of antibodies.

From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus. Additionally, CDC estimated that 151,700-575,400 people worldwide died from (H1N1)pdm09 virus infection during the first year the virus circulated.

 

Though the 2009 flu pandemic primarily affected children and young and middle-aged adults, the impact of the (H1N1)pdm09 virus on the global population during the first year was less severe than that of previous pandemics.

IMO I think that the overall populations immune systems were better prepared for H1N1 than COVID. It happening within the US was probably helpful for the States since they can recognized and get on top of it better rather than the unknown of it coming from other regions. Could be much harder to control that way. Also I am not sure whether or not H1N1 is easier to detect than Corona since Corona can linger without you knowing till the symptoms take a bad turn, allowing you to unknowingly infect others.

 

Overall it is hard to compare the two. I do believe after this current pandemic that there will be a lot more urgent world action when another virus pops up in a country to prevent it from getting out of hand.
