My personal experience isn't relative? Lol! What a joke. Here comes "cancel culture".  Now your gaslighting me for giving my own personal opinion based on living my own life here in Florida while you sit in PA. Priceless.

If Florida is so bad, why are politicians like AOC and Michigan's Governor Whitmer safe to come here. Because they're hypocrites.

How would that go over here if I wrote disparaging things about your home State of PA? It's not a virtual fact unless you can provide some hard data to back it up. Follow the science instead of following political science. There is no need for a vaccine in an immune system that is showing antibodies. But, I guess you're a doctor as well as a "golf pro"?

My primary care physician knows quite a bit more than you do. But hey, this is your kingdom and anyone who disagrees with the ruler gets the boot.

Enjoy your new clothes your nakedness.

I'm out.

Chill dude. It’s okay for people to have a different opinion than you. Also, this is a golf forum. Try the golf topics.

I've lived in Illinois (30 years), Iowa (15 years), and Ohio (6 years). 

If you want you can say disparaging things about all three of those... God knows, I do. 

Every state, every country, every governor, every president gets some things wrong and some things right. Shouldn't be a big deal to point out both the things they got wrong and the things they got right. No need to be offended.

I lived through Covid, it was a joke and nothing more than a mild case of the flu.

My aunt ended up in the hospital and almost got put on a ventilator. Her brother lost vision in his one eye, and basically is nearly incapacitated from living a normal life now. 

The rest of the world isn't you.

Gaslighting would be making you convince lies. 

Here are some facts. 

1. you are 1 person out of 395 MILLION people in the United States. 
2. Your personal experience is not the same experience of those 395 million people. 
3. You are gaslighting yourself by believing your own experience is what only matters and is the only truth in the world.

Ok Frank, where did you read this word gaslighting that got you all excited to use it? I’m not sure you know what it means because @iacas did nothing close to it.

Maybe he watched or has played Among Us? It is pretty much a game of gaslighting people 😛

I have a degree in medicinal chemistry, and I never said you needed a vaccine (though a booster would help).

The rest of your BS isn’t worth further response.

Very unpopular take, to me this thread should be halted from new postings. I don’t read and new or relevant info about this. Of course things could change just my useless post on a boring Sunday.

We're doing just fine down here in Florida. I lived through Covid, it was a joke and nothing more than a mild case of the flu. I live in a retirement community (55+) in the last two years, our community hasn't lost one person to "Covid".

It's way past time to live your lives. Spring is coming, Summer is almost here. Get outside and live your lives.

Almost a million Americans are unavailable for comment due to Covid.

Follow the science

Okay:

Brain-CAT-Scan.jpg

COVID-19 patients commonly report having headaches, confusion, and other neurological symptoms, but doctors don’t fully understand how the disease targets the brain during infection. Now, researchers at Tulane...

The team of researchers found severe brain inflammation and injury consistent with reduced blood flow or oxygen to the brain, including neuron damage and death. They also found small bleeds in the brain.

Surprisingly, these findings were present in subjects that did not experience severe respiratory disease from the virus.

Fischer’s initial findings documenting the extent of damage seen in the brain due to SARS-CoV-2 infection were so striking that she spent the next year further refining the study controls to ensure that the results were clearly attributable to the infection.

“Because the subjects didn’t experience significant respiratory symptoms, no one expected them to have the severity of disease that we found in the brain,” Fischer said. “But the findings were distinct and profound, and undeniably a result of the infection.”

How many here got their 4th shot? I guess I should get going on this. 
 

That guy who got vaxxed like 70 times because he was doing something scammy. What is the negative effect of so many innoculations?

I'm not 50. I will when it opens up to those my age (at some point).

I'm over 50, but it hasn't quite been 4 months since I got the first booster. So, for me that means I can get this booster after April 28th. 
I'm going to get it. 

My philosophy is keep hitting me with the vaccines and the boosters until I'm like Wolverine.

I read a scholarly article written by a doctor who suggested waiting on the 4th shot (if your immune system is okay) until a new variant or subvariant is effectively on the scene.

I saw this and since this seems contrary to a lot that has been said here, so I thought I’d post it for discussion purposes

The study, published by the Committee To Unleash Prosperity, graded states by comparing...

I just looked them up and seems the group publishing the study is politically biased so that may be the difference. But worth a look nonetheless if we are unbiased.

Oy, no, just to remain "unbiased" doesn't mean you have to read trash:

Quote

The study, published by the Committee To Unleash Prosperity, graded states by comparing COVID-19 outcomes based on the number of deaths, the economy and impact on education.

In other words… it's an opinion piece.

If you're perpetually LYING about how many COVID deaths you have, you're doing it wrong.

It's like listening to a flat earth society meeting and saying "but I had to listen to the other side, just to stay unbiased…".

What?! The New York Post, biased??? I have them on my morning reading list of news sources. Not to get another point of view, but to get a good laugh.
