BB: No, I don't think you're a quack. Your comments over the last year regarding the pandemic are a one-note song full of citations that I suppose are designed to sway the opinions of those you disagree with--but they mostly are just exhausting rehashes of the same one-note song.
You might even be right. But going out of your way to pick fights is not the best way to win friends and influence people.
Now, if I get moderated for this response, I'll accept it.
Halbert, I hope neither you nor I get moderated. One of the main questions that matters, as far as I'm concerned is: am I wrong?(or not me, but the studies I link to) You say: "You might even be right.". Indeed, I think the evidence overwhelmingly concludes that I probably am right. As I said in the OP, if people conclude that I am crazy, they are not really arguing against my conclusions, but they are against the extremely highly qualified MDs who I am quoting. MDs who are, IMO, far above Fauci on this subject, because they are actually in the trenches seeing what works to help their patients survive. And what a relatively superb job the are doing! If I am severely ill, I can omly pray that I end up in their ICU!
"But going out of your way to pick fights is not the best way to win friends and influence people.".
Yes, Halbert, you are right about
that. And I realized I was once again taking a chance of generating some real negativity towards me personally by bringing this up once again. I am beating the same drum over and over. But Halbert, though I want to be liked by you and every one else just as much as the next guy, my primary concern is to save lives. That is all that really matters. And it seems I can not get any one to listen to facts. So I don't know what else to do except keep beating that dead horse, in hopes that finally SOMEONE will listen. If someone has listened and one life has been saved, for me it will be worth my unpopularity.
And Halbert, I confess that on my last foray into this forum a few months ago, your words to me cut me to the core. Why? Well, I was used to extreme assault from BuddyBlank.(where is he anyway? I hope he is all right). But Buddy was well known by most as pretty out there in his combative comments to may others than just me. And before him it was a few people who I wondered if they were the same person as Buddy, just using different usre names. But all pretty extreme in their responses. And before them it was Tall Allen, who rather than ignoring my threads, used to tell me that he was keeping a close watch on me to make sure I didn't hurt some one by linking to studies. This was before he had to leave due to his harshness with other folks, not me, and his refusal to be moderated.
But you? I had no idea you felt that way about
me. You and I- if mem serves- got here about
the same time. And you did not always agree with me, which is totally fine, but I had no idea of the extremity of your opposition to things I had posted previously. And that got me thinking: well, who else? Maybe all or most? So, I decided it best if I just leave folks alone and not butt in where not wanted. So as far as commenting or starting threads, I just sort of disappeared for a few months. ( HA! It appears I was not missed! LOL! Maybe I should take a hint? LOL! )
But, I kept on reading here as I always have. And same old thing. When can we get the vaccine? When can we come out of distancing and masks? Has the vaccine been rushed and will there be long term harm? The entire time, the most important(IMO at least) thing being missed: that people with high but still safe blood levels of C, D and zinc have almost zero need to worry about
getting bad sick from Covid or any other respiratory illness, if they even get it at all. (as I write, Fauci is talking about
the need for a booster. And no doubt soon there will be a new virus assaulting us. SIGH, it truly will never ends) And as this goes on, as the masses remain ignorant of all of this because the government and medical authorities absolutely refuse to tell them, over 1/2 million die.
So, Halbert, my tender whimpy feelings may have been bruised by the thought that you didn't like me, but recently as I kept reading I thought: what the heck is wrong with me? Why do I give a hoot of any of these members or mods like me? All that is important, at least until I am proven wrong, is that even if only 1 out of 10 listens to me, then 1 out of 10 or a hundred lives might be saved. All in a pretty safe and very cheap fashion. If Marik et all results are correct, and mortality was reduced between 70 and 85% by adding these super cheap, readily available and pretty darn safe substances, how many lives would that have been during the last year and a half? And if people can accomplish even just 25% of this benefit by taking care of business themselves before they ever need a doctor, how many lives saved would that have been?
So, Halbert, again, you are right. I am proving very poor at winning friends and influencing people, even though I wish it was not that way. But if there is a chance that one of you guys has listened to- not to me, but to the studies I have linked to- then there is the chance that one life has been saved or at least severe illness avoided or lessened. And if that is the case, even if I end up hated or simply thought of as crazy, it is well worth it. Even if I have to keep repeating the facts and studies over and over again before it makes it thru thick skulls belonging to people who don't like me.
Having blown off that steam, let me say: by vaccine or other means, I wish all of you- most particularly including Halbert- excellent health and blessings! May God bless you all!
