    You think a governor's executive ban to businesses across the whole state is not authoritarian?

    What's next? executive ban all businesses from serving certain race or gender?

    Seems to me some twisted logic. Banning a federal government mandate is not authoritarian. The government mandate is authoritarian. That second part is so far out there it doesn't deserve comment.

    Both things are authoritarian. To not let private enterprise have their own rules.... Yep over the line too. How about when the big companies require employees to be vaccinated, say American or Delta Airlines. Texas is a big hub for airlines. Can they operate under their own rules in Texas? Or are they going to be mandated to comply?

    What is HIPA?
    I know HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, which is the federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge.

    Twisted logic is law makers that assume every abortion seeking woman is a criminal trying to kill a baby without consideration.

    Giving out life-saving vaccine for free during a pandemic ( that already killed 700,000 in America) for Americans to work, operate in public with more protection against the pandemic is not authoritarian.

    It might just be a coincidence but last year was the lowest recorded number of Flu cases in recorded history. Could it be that masks and distancing actually work? Especially seeing there were not nearly as many Fly shots given. Docs are really encouraging people to get a Flu shot this year.

    Much as I hate to contribute to flu-related subject in this Politics thread, it's possible that there was a low number of flu cases since everything was covid, even if it wasn't. Sniffles? covid. Cough? covid. Aches and pains? covid. Flu feelings? covid. Car crash due to coughing? covid Heart attack due to stress over covid announcements and warnings? covid.

    GSW to the head, C19? I'm sure that the listed numbers are not 100% accurate but they are relatively close. The measures taken to prevent the spread of C19 also worked extremely well with the Flu, it also helps that the Flu is not nearly as contagious as Covid, especially the really contagious Delta mutation.

    But hey, the Voodoo doc and the chiropractor that are self proclaimed virus experts stayed at a Holiday in last night.

    Don't forget Trumps 2nd piece of legislation, the 2.1 trillion that 99% went to the extremely wealthy and large corporations. Trickle Down Economics on steroids. Also know as the biggest money grab for the rich know on the planet earth. Yes the Dems have fucked themselves with all the crap attached to the infrastructure bill but still that money is for the country not the rich. Huge difference for about the same amount. Even Ole Ronnie would not approve of Trumps $2.1 trick.

    I think that I'd agree that the Republican party has been drastically changed since the 80s. I do not believe Reagan could be elected these days even they hold him up as some kind of beacon.

    Of course, the Democratic party has changed drastically also. They used to be the party of the Klan and now Republicans have shifted that type into their voting bloc.

    I think the proposal of allying with moderate Democrats may be the only sound strategy. Otherwise, we will continue to see farther extreme viewpoints not just from the Republicans. but also the Democrats and I think the majority of the country really falls somewhere in between what we see on Newsmax or CNN.

    Exactly, the numbers are inflated by alot. The CDC even changed the way death certificates were filled out in March of 2020 which made things biased towards covid.

    You say "has been" like it's over, but it isn't gone, and probably never will be, until it mutates to a more relatively harmless variant.

    What are the sources of these information?

    ==============================

    What is real?

    More people will get infected with COVID when more people are unvaccinated &/or unmasked in public spaces.

    More people get severely ill when they are unvaccinated and require hospitalization. Which take up hospital resources unnecessarily.

    More people will die the longer unvaccinated people wait for "natural immunity" to develop among the population than getting a vaccine when available.

    More variance of COVID will develop quicker than "natural immunity" develop among the population; some COVID variances may be more deadly &/or more transmissible.

    The more unvaccinated population we have, the quicker the virus is allow to develop variance and adapt to human immunity.

    Hundreds of thousands of scientists and medical professionals around the world can reach consensus on something based on a mountain of data & evidence using proven, reliable methods; but a few quacks with a podcast, YouTube Channels can convince millions the science is wrong.

    Here s a number to look at. Police have died 4 times more from C19 than gun shots this year. And if you look at how many are still messed up from C19 compared to being shot...... WAY more pain and suffering from C19. I think until C19 effects you on some personal level that it is hard for some to realize that this in not some normal bug, it's a very bad virus and probably not a natural occurrence.
