    It does have anti-inflammatory properties. Early in the pandemic, people were trying anything that might help against the inflammation that Covid causes. It was found to be ineffective and discarded as a treatment.

    Just an explanation as to why it was tried. It was discarded as a potential treatment.

    Why would a hypertension drug be an effective treatment for limp dicks.

    I have no idea why people would take ivermectin but not get vaccinated, it's totally baffling. But the argument that drugs only help with one issue doesn't really hold up.

    Maybe if they got the drug from a doctor and not a veterinarian, then it would be not effective.

    Just because some drugs have multiple uses doesnít mean all do, nor should you dismiss someone questioning using a drug for a purpose other than intended on the grounds that some drugs treat multiple issues.

    Seemed a fairly obvious subtext, but perhaps you missed it in your haste to both sides.

    Half truths? You mean his own words and actions? You go to Trump's defense almost as quickly as Special does. That's impressive.

    Trump not a racist? Lol.

    Glad to know you think him saying all Haitians "have Aids" and calling those countries "shitholes" isn't racist btw. Says a lot about you.

    If that's the trade off to people dying so be it. What's the alternative? Allowing schools to become infestation grounds for COVID? The virus doesn't give a **** about appeasing all sides. It's telling you that if you decide to not mask in these environments people are going to get sick so you make the necessary sacrifices.

    That's true, but that wasn't what he asked. Facts are not "both sides" ... they are side agnostic.

    People keep saying these things like it matters, and it just ****ing doesn't. We don't get to make the rules. It's a machine built by nature to infect and spread itself, and it's not going to avoid doing that if you have a really good reason for being exposed to it.

    It's just a pity is all. And the position of "if it saves one life" is a pretty weak argument over time. The push back and lax following of the suggestions was a predictable result at the beginning.

    Some people were always going to, but the politicization and incredible bumbling of this at the beginning made it significantly worse.

    He also didnít say what your facts disputed either.

    It's not just saving one life though. The Delta Variant spreads at a much higher rate than the original infection. Something like one infected person spreads it to as many 9 or 10 people and its still killing people at a high rate. 4,400 people just in the last 2 days.
