      No. I don't.

      EDIT: your use of the word 'we' disturbs me too

        If you don't believe we can count the total number of people that died from all causes with death certificates tied to social security numbers that puts you solidly into tin foil hat territory.

          No it doesn't. Your question was inferring died of a certain cause. Stop being a fuchstard who likes to circular argue.

          And who is this 'we' you keep referencing?

            Or maybe you inferred something that wasn't there and clearly haven't actually understood much of anything that's been discussed in this thread.

                  Ok. Again. No ... I don't think we can count all the deaths. Ever looked at a milk carton?

                  So you are wrong there as well.

                  Again ... who is this 'we' you keep referencing. Do you work at a morgue or something>

                    Are you suggesting the total number of deaths is wrong because it doesn't include missing persons who have possibly died?

                      You might forward this info to the director of the CDC, because he claims the mask is a better defense against the ‘rona than any vaccine will be.

                      CDC head says masks may be better than coronavirus vaccine, implores people to wear them

                        The only vacillation that I'm aware of was when the initial call was not to have everyone hording every N95 mask that could be found so the front line workers would have the necessary PPE. When cloth masks began making their appearance the message was changed to help out by wearing a cloth mask or disposable surgical masks.

                              The study you reference was for 300 some symptomatic people. More than half of those who tested positive also reported eating in a restaurant. Hard to eat while wearing a mask.

                                Good lord.

                                When a person dies, of whatever cause, a death certificate is generated. Believe it or not, these things are counted, not just this year but every year.

                                He didn't "infer" anything with his statement, which would be impossible because you can't "infer" anything by saying it. If you meant that he "implied" something, well you're wrong again. He said in plain english he was talking about the total number of deaths, which again is pretty easy to count. It is also a very steady and predictable number UNLESS something unusual is happening. I suppose there could be some other unusual thing going on that nobody knows about which has caused nearly a quarter million excess deaths in this country so far this year. Lots of motorcycle crashes for instance.

                                  What he claimed thats quoted is essentially fact. He didn't claim it was better; he claimed it was more guaranteed to do something.

                                  I'd rather a good vaccine, but it almost definitely won't have any guarantee.

                                    The way I see it, neteng has been patiently waiting—just over five hours at this point—for an answer to a very blunt question which nobody seems to be wiling or able to answer, preferring instead to jump back and forth between semantics and insults. So maybe I’ll get answer if I ask the question: have you ever looked at a milk carton? It’s a simple yes or no he was looking for there.

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
