I'm so sick of this subtle bullshiat. If god wants me to believe in her, she needs to hit Bakker with a bus. Right in front of his church.

There are people who would sell their souls or their country for money or publicity or for other, broken, reasons. I just hope they've all gravitated to this administration and there aren't many left wandering around.

If we can get all of them in a room together, maybe we can, you know....

uh....

nuke them?

Donny....Dr. Phil isn't a medical doctor. He's a psychologist who got tossed out of the industry because he's a quack.

But, the Orange God asked them to potentially do great harm to everyone. Everyone knows that Orange God is best god.

I wasn't a FF4 guy, but I can't imagine any of his serious takeover schemes didn't violate some Geneva Convention rules. I mean, periodically, we (as a UN) do intervene and try some petty dictator for being too much of an asshole. What did Doomovia (or whatever) have which would get him off the hook? Or was it just comic book logic of diplomatic immunity or some such?

They're selling suboxone to the two generations of addicts they enabled.

So we used economists to react to the pandemic, and doctors to come up with an economic revitalization plan?

This administration is so unbelievably useless.

The King of Baron was clearly in violation when he seized the crystal from Mysidia, which is why FuSoYa the Lunarian took it upon himself to intervene and double meteor the dark lord Golbez.  But...he did not perish.

Well they can work with the states to pull their license to practice medicine. If not that work with their malpractice insurers to either deny or jack up their rates ad infinitum.

"Murtaugh said the campaign is not concerned about contradicting government experts.
"Our job at the campaign is to reflect President Trump's point of view," Murtaugh said. "We are his campaign. There is no difference between us and him

A few months ago my doctor told the story of the guy who has his license pulled for prescribing the hydroxy to a patient without lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.  The state medical authorities sent a powerful message.

One thing I've learned in life is that doctors are kind of like engineers (a group I've dealt with a lot more): very good at a very specific task and/or master of a very difficult set of knowledge, very coddled by society and told how important/smart they are, and, therefore, very often extremely arrogant. This often leads them to the conclusion that they know a lot more than they actually do and have special knowledge and skills that can be applied to any area of life.

At least these guys are commenting on medical stuff, but the average doctor, no matter how skilled, successful, or smart, has no special expertise on epidemiology or public health. They may know more than the average person, but are a dilettante when compared to an actual expert.

Anybody catch that CDC report yesterday saying the virus doesn't really spread by touching contaminated surfaces?

(It wasn't an OMG WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE story so probably not)

So as long as somebody doesn't breathe/cough/sneeze close to your face, you're probably not going to get it.  Wear a mask, you'll be fine:

There is alot of truth in what you say: many doctors are terrible investors - for exactly the reasons you mentioned. At the end of the day its, "is this dude with the Bachelors Degree and a securities license and 15 years experience in the markets really_ more knowledgeable about anything than Me, M.D.?" M.Ds are the biggest marks for speculative s***

So this thing is so easily spread, and not with the help of surfaces, and you're suggesting that's a good thing?
