    I am going to blunt here. Your and Pi's forum posting etiquette in this thread is the worst I have seen anywhere; forget double posts, you posted nine different messages back to back prior to my message, and half the time you are not quoting the people you are adressing. Before that, Pi had four consequetive messages back to back. This makes just following the conversation very tedious, and backtracking more than day or two looking for a singular link a unreasonable chore. Also, you still didnt post a link. However I did manage to find the article from the site, I think: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0924857920300996 Its a study on 36 patients(20 who received treatment and 16 control. Six patients dropped out mid study, one due to death). That is a very small sample size. However, it did show results, but particular results with certain dozage and used with another drug called Azithromycin. The dozage especially is important, as chloroquine is toxic, and has killed corona patients in, I think it was Brazilian treatment trial, which was aborted. The same journal also has a response to that study: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0399077X20300858?via%3Dihub In which they had eleven people, and received negative results on the effect of chloroquine. The results are far from conclusive. From what I have read, I am leaning towards cloroquin probably having some level of positive effects with careful dozage, early administration, and medium risks of adverse effects. I would hesitate to call it "life saving" yet, as the sample sizes have been diminiutive and the covid death-rate is relatively low. But I am not a doctor, nor a specialist in virology anyway, so my musings are not authorative. No, I do not.

    Mike didn't kill it; I've just been swamped in real life the past few weeks. I got maybe 3 hours of sleep in the past 65+ hours now lol. My system is so full of caffeine you could harvest my blood and sell it as an energy drink. I've been working on a response piece-meal when I've had the time. It should be ready in a few days. Real life is starting to calm down. If anything, Mike probably saved the discussion by moving it to a new thread where it wouldn't get buried while real life does its thing.

    well said indy. america isn't perfect but she does have one of the highest standards of living. even the majority of the homeless has access to shelter and fresh water. most of our major cities has every culture imaginable living within blocks of one another without conflict. the government, even now, is pumping trillions of dollars into our economy because of COVID-19. and because of that, people in foreign countries are trying their best to scam the american people. then they have the gall to come over here and write on the sidewalk "the american flag propagates violence" when the world trade center was hit by airplanes.

    I believe I recall seeing a photo of a radiohalo where there were two. One was elliptical and the other was round, both surrounding the same radiocenter. I have Gentry's book right here and I believe that's where I saw it. If someone thinks it is important I could probably find it and upload a photo. I'd like for Wibble to explain the ABSENCE OF A ROOT SYSTEM under most if not all of the polystrate tree photos. The absence certainly is strong evidence that these trees were involved in a gigantic flood rather than the typical conventional fossilization scenario.

    this is patently false wibble. there are NONE, ZERO, NADA, between animal phyla. koonin explicitly spells this out in one of his papers. furthermore he discounts the mainstream explanation for the absence of these fossils as unreliable. IOW, there is NO FOSSIL EVIDENCE that animal phyla descended from one another. also don't forget that he changed his wording of this scenario because it "alluded to ID". he originally stated phyla arrived here fully formed, ready made, which he changed to "abruptly". personally i have grave doubts about a theory where its proponents distort the evidence. and i find gross distortions in what is being presented as "facts" concerning evolution. i'll be getting my internet connection back soon (within the next 2 weeks), i'll then be in a position to continue my full frontal assault on the modern synthesis unabated.

    Go right ahead and mortgage your house and bet it all on whatever Nate Silver tells you. Then we can watch you bawling your eyes out like everyone at the Hillary Clinton celebration on election night.

    Another reason you should vote for Trump. He has begun the process of getting the border under control and that has at least a CHANCE to stop pregnant women from breaking into our country just so they can give birth. The odds are pretty low that the constitution could be changed regarding this given that our nation is virtually 50/50 and you need something like 2/3 of states to ratify it. However I'm not sure that means two-thirds of the population so if it is true that Republicans have more States but the Democrats have more people in fewer States, it could be doable. There might be plenty of Democrats who also object to anchor babies in a very narrow definition of the term. But the way the Kim decision reads, the fact that the parents had a permanent domicile was what gave Kim his citizenship. If that were how it would be decided today, that would solve much of the problem. As I said at the start, the idea of birthright citizenship has experts on either side of it having different legal opinions. That's because, you know, I watch Fox News.

    You have already acknowledged that a person should not be accused of lying if they were sincerely mistaken. And yet you know from past experience that I almost always provide citation links, but when I fail to do so one time, you decide to accuse me of LYING. That's what plagiarism IS. WHEN YOU ANSWER MY QUESTION IN THE PREVIOUS POST (Is it POSSIBLE...) I WILL HAVE AN IDEA OF WHETHER I SHOULD APOLOGIZE OR NOT...MR. BULLFROG.

    anyone that has some knowledge of chemistry wouldn't even try this kind of argument. the properties of a substance (protein for example) changes as its molecular makeup changes. the sliding clamps that aid in replication COULD NOT have come about by "gradual accumulation". these molecules are REQUIRED for life. what's more is the fact that 2 of them (both of them being different) are required. the chances that these 2 molecules "just happened to be there at the right time" simply defies all rationality. of course, we can say "catalysis" for one of them, but for both? you must remember that we aren't dealing with the same-o same-o when we are talking about the cell. the notion that the cell bootstrapped itself from a "pond of goo" is absurd. sure, everywhere you look leads you to believe that science has this stuff well in hand. but only because they are feeding you a dumbed down version of the story. for example: a base pair error (mutation or insertion) has one chance in a trillion of surviving the replication process. that's like one typo in 16 billion words, and i took the word length at 7 characters and a space (8 characters). even if it makes it past the replication process it has 50% chance of killing the cell. this type of process makes no sense for a paradigm the relies on "mutations" to succeed. feedback and feedforward processes are likewise unexplainable.

    Misstatements of facts like these were addressed in yesterday's White House briefing. Please start at 13:30 where she addresses Obama's manual and then at 18:20 she addresses the organizational changes. She points out that there are exactly the same number of people involved but they now are more appropriately organized. Also in August of 2019 there was an exercise to test for preparedness and there was an after action report on that was delivered in January 2020. So as Governor Cuomo said Trump was ON IT. He has certainly not been perfect, however, there is absolutely NO WAY that Biden could serve us better as the general in this war against the virus pandemic. You want to talk about Biden having experience with epidemics. How does his experience AND VIGOR AND CAPABILITY TODAY compare with the experience that Trump NOW has? Can you HONESTLY say that Biden NOW has more experience than Trump? As Biden would say, COME ON MAN!

    I hope those who plan to vote for Biden this fall noticed that yesterday when he was asked what he knew about unmasking Michael Flynn, his FIRST INSTINCT WAS TO LIE and say he knew nothing about it... hoping his liberal hack friend in the liberal media would only toss him softballs. Only after George Stephanopoulos repeated the question did he come clean...BARELY by saying he thought it was a different question than it was! BTW I give Stephanopoulos kudos for pressing the point but that might have happened only because he sees Biden as a dead man walking and wants to see him replaced before the election.

    Gleeful reporting from New York media to defame the value of hydroxychloroquine. https://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs/news/2020/05/07/hospitals-in-nyc-abandon-hydroxychloroquine-treatment-touted-by-trump- Why Hospitals in NYC Have Abandoned Hydroxychloroquine By Bobby Cuza New York City PUBLISHED 8:58 AM ET May. 07, 2020 UPDATED 6:43 AM ET May. 08, 2020 NEW YORK - President Donald Trump put hydroxychloroquine on the map by cheerleading for the drug before researchers could determine its effectiveness. Now, it is all but disappearing as a treatment for COVID-19. ### And yet just two days ago there was ALSO reporting from NYU researchers that the combination of hydroxychloroquine, and zinc results in 44% FEWER DEATHS. Sounds like something political is going on! Can you believe it? https://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs/news/2020/05/12/nyu-study-looks-at-hydroxychloroquine-zinc-azithromycin-combo-on-decreasing-covid-19-deaths Drug Combo with Hydroxychloroquine Promising: NYU Study By Alyssa Paolicelli New York City PUBLISHED 7:18 AM ET May. 12, 2020 NEW YORK - Researchers at NYU's Grossman School of Medicine found patients given the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine along with zinc sulphate and the antibiotic azithromycin were 44 percent less likely to die from the coronavirus. "Certainly we have very limited options as far as what we have seen work for this infection so anything that may work is very exciting," said Dr. Joseph Rahimian, Infectious Disease Specialist at NYU Langone Health. The study looked at the records of 932 COVID-19 patients treated at local hospitals with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin. More than 400 of them were also given 100 milligrams of zinc daily. Researchers said the patients given zinc were one and a half times more likely to recover, decreasing their need for intensive care. One theory is that hydroxychloroquine may aid a cell’s ability to absorb the zinc which has antiviral properties and responds to the infection. "It sort of boosts the zinc activity which is one of the reasons we thought to look at zinc here and in this observational study we did see a difference suggesting that maybe that boosting activity of the hydroxychloroquine with the zinc helps the zinc to work better and lead to a benefit," Rahimian said. Dr. Rahimian says patients in the more critical stages of infection did not fare as well. And he cautioned that more research is needed - in particular a randomized controlled trial - to prove how and how well the drug combination works. Meanwhile, a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association on Monday found that treating patients only with hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, or both did not reduce hospital deaths. The study by the State Health Department and the SUNY Albany School of Public Health involved 1,500 patients. President Donald Trump has hailed hydroxychloroquine as a potential game changer. Governor Andrew Cuomo also was upbeat about the drug but late last month he revealed that the preliminary findings of the state study were a disappointment. "Basically it was not seen as a positive. Not seen as a negative. And didn’t really have much of an effect on the recovery rate," Cuomo said. Other studies of hydroxychloroquine are continuing.

    A survey of 6150 doctors indicates 59% prescribed HCQ for covid-19 patients with moderate symptoms in the hospital. This is MORE strong evidence that Trump was right to recommend that this medication be considered and discussed between a patient and his doctor. Thanks to Trump, there have probably been dozens of lives saved that otherwise may not have been. But who really cares, eh Pi? The prime directive ("JOB ONE") is to defeat Trump and therefore to NOT credit him with knowing what he was talking about. https://app.sermo.com/covid19-barometer?utm_campaign=wwwsermo_covid19

    "And just to point out, Chloroquine is not a political issue outside US. Politicians have not advocated for or against it, at least not in Europe." That is because you guys in Europe dont have the likes of people such as Jerry Nadler, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Schmuck Choomer, AOC, Tom Perez, (Just to name a FEW) and all of the other Cohorts in today's US DemonRatic Party... Because the people in Europe are probabaly fair minded and actually care about the well being of SOME of their people.. NOT HERE!! Here with the Dems it is about Political Power and how to get it by any means necessary.. Remember which is the party of "Pro Choice"? Need I remind you of what happens to someone who gets "pro choiced"?

    I agree that 1000 times was off. 15000 was the number I saw for Finland and last I knew we had about 1.2 million LEGALS and about 100,000 per MONTH of illegals...for a total of 2.4 million per year...not counting births from illegals. I did notice my error but it was after the time I had to edit. And it is still true that as a percentage we have twice as many who have been foreign born as Finland. Having 180 times more immigration when we have only 60 times more population still makes my point that I have no reason to want to listen to a foreigner who wants to BUTT IN and criticize our immigration policy. Does Finland have an open borders policy like the Democrats want, and you probably support??? If not, I say hypocrites should hush.

    I hate to say it, but this is probably more damaging to Biden than the 20+ accusations of S@xual misconduct against Trump as Biden's voter base is less likely to ignore it....

    I know a couple of doctors in Pittsburgh....and they were really gearing up for this thing a month ago like they were getting ready for a war. As of yet, the war hasn't reached the "Burgh"....at least, not yet. But, they were preparing for the worst case scenario big time....

    What i know for a 100% FACT is that ALL of the numbers are an OUTRIGHT FARCE!!! Hospitals get PAID almost 3 times as MUCH for having Covid 19 LISTED as 'Cause Of Death' (Roughly $5000.00 For A Non Covid Death & $13,000 For a Covid Death And $35,000 For ANY Use Of A Ventilator Associated) THIS is a FACT and for ANYONE to believe Hospital Administrators are ABOVE doing exactly THIS merely for the financial benefit, then naivety is RUNNING RAMPANT!! Likewise I KNOW for FACT that EVERY Hospital that i personally know from friends of mine and family members that work there were PURPOSELY WITHHOLDING Protective Gear such as Face Mask etc. from Doctors & Nurses & ALL OTHER Hospital Staff.. MERELY because of a 'Perceived Future Shortage' of ALL P.P.E. BUT, 'Those Actual' shortages NEVER ARRIVED!!! My wife and 7 OTHER Doctors And Nurses an 2 Hospital Administrators have ALL told me these things personally... And THIS is from 3 different Hospitals in our area!! So as a FACT i personally Do NOT BELIEVE ANY OF the so-called 'Fact Stats' regarding ANYTHING about the Covid 19 Death Rates etc..... FROM ANYBODY!! THEY (The Television Reporters/Reports) are ALL str8 LIARS!! And are misrepresenting ALL OF THE FACTS!! I likewise personally could NOT care ANY LESS about what ANYONE has to say in any type of rebuttal to what i have said here... So this post shall indeed go without any further response from me... Good Day & Be Ready for whats to come down the 'Pipe' from our so-called 'Authorities' regarding the Containment/Spreading Etc. of the Covid 19 Pandemic....

    So let's see... The only chance the Democrats had was to try to block Kavanaugh and hope that they could take the Senate in the midterm elections in 30 days. That should clarify things for you I hope.
