OffGuardian is an antivax, conspiracy theory crank site, that has minimized the pandemic since Day One. No one there has the slightest of medical credentials..........................................
I could go on and on with them.
So then, when I asked " Crazy, or not?", your vote is clearly crazy? I just thought some of the graphs were interesting, if they are not false.
The fact you frequent such a site says it all. It fits right in with the rest of your "ideas" re: the lockdowns, IV vitamin C, HCQ, vitamin D, Sweden diet, etc. - OffGuardian has almost the exact same views.
BillyBob...Off Guardian?...please. Most of your sources are scientific and verifiable. But, honestly, you really lost a lot of credibility with me when you quote the Off Guardian site. This source is full of conspiracy theories, pseudo-science, Russian propaganda, 9/11 lies and downright outrageous comments, e.g. "no one has died of the Corona Virus.
Gotta call it like I see it; that site is pure Cra*.

Reading OffGuardian reminds me of a combination of Alex Jones, Mike Adams (the "Health" Ranger), and Dr. Mercola all rolled into one. Thankfully, Facebook finally banned Adams, but even with the banning, there is still a great deal of misinformation regarding health: antivax stuff, vitamin and supplement hustlers, and so on. In my view, all of these quacky kooks should be deplatformed.
Sigh. Or LOL, not sure which. My oh my. First I unintentionally insult Halbert, and now this.
The funny part is as soon as I quickly posted two posts one after the other, one from NYT and the other from this place called "OffGuardian", right before leaving the house today to go hiking, I thought to myself " I bet Buddy will research this while I am hiking and find out(unless he already knows) that at least one of those sites is some sort of evil institution.". Boy was that right about
that! But I wasn't counting on Tudpock, guess I should have! LOL!
Guys, I grovel before you to plead that I have no clue who who "Offguardian" is, I never heard of them. In fact, I doubt I even realized the name of the folks who were writing this article. just saw what looked like an interesting title, clicked on it and thought "well, that seems both hopeful and interesting, wonder if the guys at HWPC might find it interesting", so I sent it over, with a note saying "Also both interesting and hopeful. Crazy, or not? Check out some of the graphs.", and headed out the door.
I get back from hiking and realize I have sinned in a major fashion. I even have Tudpock telling me "But, honestly, you really lost a lot of credibility with me when you quote the Off Guardian site.". Dang. If I had an ounce of decency in me, I would go away and leave all of you credible folks to work out the problems of the world.
And I see I was so bad I even set Buddy off to doing his tyrant thing again as well. If it was up to him, he would hold down every citizen and force them to take into their bodies whatever substance the always trustworthy government docs and Pharmaceutical say is required, and now he wants to ban free speech as well. "all of these quacky kooks should be deplatformed.". Well, I can see how that would make life easier for Buddy, none of these pesky folks with different opinions from him. Just put duct tape over those folks mouths and inject them!
Honestly, sometimes I think some folks around here just need to take a chill pill.

Well, if by frequent, you mean I went there for the first time this morning, for the first time in history, when I clicked on a title that looked interesting, well then yes I frequent that site. However, you say they agree with me on D and IV C, etc? Well then, they must have something going in their favor, turns out they are not all that stupid. At least in some areas, they are obviously following the science and the studies. As Buddy will confirm, in agreement with them apparently, when he takes his 4000 IU of vitamin D today.
Really guys, chill out. I now realize that Offguardian is the source of all evil, but are their graphs in this article lies? Might be for all I know. Which I guess is why I asked "Crazy, or not?".
