Teachers' unions are definitely wielding too much power in this process. All along I've said that schooling should be based on levels of community spread. It doesn't have to be at zero, or even extremely low, it just can't be skyrocketing. It's basically not skyrocketing anywhere now, so I think the guidance should definitely be that most districts should be in school. Biden needs to tell the CDC Director to go with what the science says and ignore teachers.
You're a smart guy. You do realize the irony you just made where in defense of your conspiratorial posts you said "This is China we're talking about. I don't need to make up anything." Right? Just because the source of the virus most likely came from China does not automatically mean the most logical answer (natural transmission) isn't the correct one. It might not be, but just saying well it's China is far insufficient from which to base an entire conspiracy theory.And once again you’re really poor at making good arguments. I suppose throwing around words like conspiracy is designed to shut down discussion. This is China we’re talking about. I don’t need to make up anything. I’m open to arguments from each side. Let’s see them! Not the frozen seafood from Europe one either - you’re on board with that theory as more plausible than an accident?
Any of the blue governors who are saying "we need to get the kids back in school" are 100% full of shit and merely politically pandering to the voters. They are absolutely OWNED by the teachers unions and they know the teachers unions aren't going to do a damn thing no matter what the governor says. 100% hollow comments by the blue governors in an attempt to garner some modicum of support from any of their base that may be waning.
I hate to break it to you, but many of those you agree with on here are just as brainwashed to the left. Regardless - this trend to call out posters for "liking" what someone else posted or who's post they "liked" or who "liked" their post is something I would expect of a teenage girl. I also wouldn't expect an adult to call someone a molester because they don't like their political views, but here we are.Keep sticking up for embarrassingly brainwashed RWers like PD and MoLester at your own peril.
“When you begin in human studies, you want to test in a population [that] is healthy, without underlying conditions,” says Dr. Paul Goepfert, director of the Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic and professor of medicine and microbiology at the University of Alabama.
“Since many elderly [people] have underlying medical conditions, this excludes them from early studies, as [they] also do not respond to vaccines as well,” explained Goepfert.
Exclusions aren’t unusual and can be important to safeguard the health of the study volunteers. Some individuals have severe or unstable risk factors that are known and should be excluded.
But companies may push to study only the healthiest people, since it may make getting FDA approval more expedient.
Older individuals often experience more side effects from vaccines in comparison to younger, healthier individuals. These complications and side effects can sometimes slow the FDA approval process.
There can be additional hurdles in enrolling elderly individuals, as not all of them have smart devices, which may be crucial to participating in the trial. They may also have mobility issues that keep them from getting to physician appointments.
It’s not necessarily the most logical. Where then is the intermediate host? How was SARS- COV2 so readily evolved to be transmissible between humans immediately, “out of the box”? These are questions that haven’t been satisfactorily addressed and are not conspiracy-minded. They are scientific questions. Why did this pandemic originate blocks from the WIV? Just a freakish coincidence? Where are the early case records and interviews?You're a smart guy. You do realize the irony you just made where in defense of your conspiratorial posts you said "This is China we're talking about. I don't need to make up anything." Right?

I’ve never said it was developed by a lab. I’ve said this is an open investigation with a lot of loose ends. That is a completely different scenario. There is circumstantial evidence, lack of evidence of certain things.I understand the game you are playing because you guys do it all the time. Craig and humbled beggar have devoted thousands of posts to this game on everything from 9/11 to Seth Rich to Benghazi to Stzrok-Page to election fraud. You are a lame newbie. It goes something like this: When you have no actual evidence of anything, you fill in the space with innuendo and open ended phrasing like "we don't know, but..." Then you post fringe conspiracy theories as quasi facts and tie it up neatly with a nice bow of supposedly circumstantial motives. At a later point, when it gets exposed for the nonsense that it is you, can claim that you never actually said the virus was developed in a Chinese lab. Your comment will be technically true, but.....
Maybe we should build a test; if this mystifies you, like this Alex Berenson Character, then you probably should voluntarily not vote.
Thanks for the link, but I'm not seeing where this guy says "we had very limited access. It wasn’t close to a thorough investigation."
Harvesting viruses from the wild and studying them, without then doing GoF, is just basic science and virology. I'm guessing almost no one thinks it shouldn't be done. Guessing and hoping that includes you.Intentionally harvesting viruses from caves, deep jungles, and god knows where else, amplifying their pathogenicity thru either serial passaging (selective breeding) or engineering designer spike proteins should be recognized as colossal-grade dumb****ery. We can’t possibly predict which permutation of nucleotides will emerge next and spread efficiently, or have a vaccine in hand for every possibility, or have it pre-tested in tens of thousands of people. It isn’t close to worth it, in terms of upside vs downside risk. This is a funding game with a conflict of interest quotient through the roof (re: the investigation), of course they don’t want their of research to die.
