@Wanzo, do not mis-attribute quotes.

Agree with the article, It just shouldn’t be mandated like San Francisco plans to IMO.  

IMO, yes, they should.

from the article….“Again, this decision is personal and unique to each family. And I won’t judge you at all if you want to learn more from me before you decide to get it for your kids. 

As she knows, it isn't entirely "personal" because it affects the livelihood and health of others.

And she said she was talking to the middle third, the cautious third or something. Not the strong "no" people and not the "line up with their kids" people.

Even if you're vaccinated it affects the livelihood and health of others.

I'm not sure what you mean.  Because I am vaccinated, I am much less likely to negatively affect the health and livelihood of others.  The converse is also true, an unvaccinated person is MORE likely to negatively impact others.

Because you can still spread the virus even if are vaccinated.

Baldera, it's not "One Size Fits All" as you seem to want to imply.  Far less chance of spreading the virus if you're vaccinated.  Go get your shot.

That’s either a false dilemma fallacy or a Texas sharpshooter fallacy. 
 

One can cause accidents when driving sober so why drive sober?

I would like to take Aaron's word on this, not sure if it is true that he said he is allergic to the vaccine. If he consulted with his doctor about secondary options besides getting vaccinated, and he has an allergic reaction to the vaccine, then I can't blame him for not taking the vaccine. 

My mom had the same concerns because she had a history of not reacting well to vaccines in the past, but chose to get vaccinated anyways. Still, I understand the fear, since certain allergic reactions are scary and could be deadly. 

BUT!! The NFL has its protocol that he has to follow. They are trying their best to keep players and personnel safe. He shouldn't be getting bent out of shape when all that stuff he tried wasn't accepted by the NFL.

No reason to. He lied.

We haven’t heard from Aaron Rodgers about the fact that he lied about being vaccinated and ultimately was outed as being unvaccinated. When we do, we may hear about his frustration with the process that...
Quote

The league doesn’t disclose the names of players who are and aren’t vaccinated. However, portions of the daily transaction report often can be cross-referenced to determine that a player was placed on COVID reserve for being in close contact with an infected person. Since only the unvaccinated can be placed on COVID reserve as close contacts, that’s one way to identify unvaccinated players.

Another way, of course, comes from the player wearing a mask in certain settings. But Rodgers consistently did not wear a mask when in the public eye, even in circumstances when he should have. That also helped him hide the truth.

Nor did he follow the protocol.  Sidelines, press conferences, etc. I guess if you have a good ratio of TD passes to INTs then you don't have to follow the rules.

Seemingly. A suspension would have been warranted, I'd think. But it appears he'll just be fined.

Nice Strawman. It's not a fallacy. Why do vaccinated people still required to wear masks at certain places or have to quarantine if they test positive for covid?

Dude, you're really lacking in factual information about the virus.  Ya gotta get off those social media sites that are make-believe and conjecture.

Yeah, ok. I'm actually in the medical field. I believe I'm a little more qualified than you on how viruses work.

Nobody has said that a vaccinated person can't test positive for COVID-19. But vaccinated people are far less likely to:

  • pass it on.
  • be hospitalized or die.
  • get sick or be symptomatic for a long time.

Furthermore, despite what you say about "at certain places" and such, even you likely know vaccinated people don't have to wear their masks as often or in as many places, they often aren't quarantined if they're a close contact with a COVID-positive person, and several other "perks." Why? Because we're understanding more about both the vaccine and COVID-19.

Don't come in here with logical fallacies and bull. And by "here" I mean more than this topic, but this whole site.

And I have a degree in medicinal chemistry.

    • Wow. Matthew Wolff plus 13. Would not have expected it. 
    • Day 580: Spent about 20 minutes working on setup and backswing with 6 iron and driver. Slow swings.
    • Scheffler put the Gr in Grand Slam.
    • After a great drive on a long par 5 I found myself 237 to the front into a 5 to 8 mile an hour breeze.  No 3 wood in the bag, I tried to hit a low running draw with my 5 wood.  Overcooked it and hit a tree well short and left, bouncing backwards into ankle deep rough. Got lucky and found the bright red Vice Pro nestled way down in the rough, 101 yards out. Took a mighty slash at it with my recently purchased 44 degree Cleveland CBX wedge I got because I wasn't happy with my OEM Titleists ability to spin the ball.  The ball came out high and straight at the pin. Hit 3 feet short of the hole. Stopped 6' behind it. In an unusual turn of events I made the putt. Best bird of the season thus far.

Lie Static Address... The GEARS definition: We've discussed rate of closure in another topic, here: A lot of things can affect rate of closure. There are tour players with high rates and low rates. It doesn't seem to correlate to accuracy. For amateurs, high rates of closure (in combination with other factors) could indicate other flaws in the swing, but there's probably better ways to measure and identify those flaws anyway. Like spin rate on a launch monitor, I don't think closure rate is meant to be evaluated in isolation.
