“the square root of negative one”
Such as — did you know that there is more than just one? Using three is quite common.
“Apparently, hospitals get money if a patient dies from Covid.”
CDC spells out conditions to be met and doctors determine if those were met.
They risk incarceration and loss of license for lying in any direction.
But those without honor, honesty, fear, imagination, or any other redeeming qualities assume it is all one big hoax all around the world.
(Even djt finally admitted it wasn’t just a Democratic plot to make him look other than perfect.)
“you’d have to prove that the covid caused all those deaths and not just effected the body”
Why would I have to do all the heavy lifting around here?? That’s what we make studies and committees for — to spread the blame around.
Okay, let’s see…a person lived with whatever conditions he or she had and died when some other condition hit, say one which induces inflammation and blood clots and assorted other changes…and then that person dies. Shall I say death would not have happened without other problems? Should it matter? Do you really want me to decide?
Okay. That which had not previously killed did not cause the death.
Disagree? Okay, we’re back to studies and committees.
(And after I did all that hard work.)
“only essential people with specialized training and licenses need a motor vehicle and should be allowed to use them”
Garbage truck driver. Useful or not?
Plumber? Useful or not?
It seems sometimes folks on the bottom of the social level are doing the most immediately necessary tasks. So are we proposing forcing everyone to justify every usage to a central committee or else forbid?
If we are, I want to be on that committee. The potential for side income is enormous. One is reminded of cities where the right to drive a taxi is worth over a million dollars — or was until freedom messed things up.
“We CHOOSE to, by where we live and how far it is from where we work”
This is true.
We chose not to live beside a toxic waste dump or an urban battleground or in a hurricane path. Should we let others assign us living spots and burial plots?
“You’re saying that all 330 million people in this country spend 2 weeks driving to meetings??”
I posited the possibility that they might NOT do that on average because of speedier transport.
We obviously would need multiple studies to determine the average savings.
You can tell I often DON’T proofread ere sending.
“…make a positivity…”
…if added, not if multiplied or divided. Sometimes not if subtracted.
… chest size, hair size, brain size,…
Keep him in the back 40 of the mansion and years could pass ere he was noticed.
