Funny.... appreciate your perspective and rational approach to decision making but these days someone using a phrase like "the science is settled" or "90% of scientists agree" automatically tells me they want to shut down the conversation or debate. There is not much the experts have been correct on with the response to C19 and I get suspicious of political agendas from CDC, WHO, or the WH.


I think you bring up a valid point. Statements like "the science is settled" are appropriate in certain circumstances. For example if there is years/decades/centuries of historical data to back up a claim then yes; the science is settled. But perhaps it's inappropriate to use the phrase "the science is settled" for relatively new phenomena like COVID-19 and it's vaccine. We're still learning a lot about the virus and how it mutates. Thus I understand people's apprehension when they hear that phrase. So I'll give and say the science is not settled on COVID-19 vaccine. However, I will say science is settle on other vaccines like Measles and Polio which have repeatedly proven to be effective for decades.

For the C19 vaccine, instead of saying "the science is settled that the vaccine is safe and effective", I think a better phrase to use is, "science has observed the vaccine is safe and effective". Scientific observation is done via rigorous repeatable testing and peer review. That observation also does not completely shut the door to contrarian voices. However those who say that the vaccine ISN'T safe and effective have to empirically prove so via the same scientific rigor, repeatable testing AND peer review process that their views are correct and thus change the consensus.

So to state again, when seeking advice on a topic for which I'm not an expert on, my general philosophy is to seek the guidance of experts and follow their consensus. Will that guarantee my decisions are always correct? No!! But it probably means I'm correct more often than I'm wrong. Or to state simply, I'll have more wins than losses with my decisions and the best we can do in this life is have a winning percentage for our decisions.

I'm not an expert on many things thus when I need advice I seek it from experts. I may begin research myself but ultimately I value consensus amongst experts on a subject matter for which I'm not well versed in. By consensus I mean for example that if I ask 100 experts the same question and 90 provide the same response then I'm apt to go with consensus conclusion. I've learned that human endeavors will always contain contrarian views and 100% consensus is impossible with a world of 8 billion people. Thus there will always be voices arguing the "other" side.

The question everyone needs to ask themselves is how much do they value scientific consensus. In reading this thread there are those who appear to dismiss it and there are those who value it. What I'm pretty sure of is that both sides of the argument in this thread will have a hard time convincing the other they are right.

In reading this thread all I see is a lot of energy being spent arguing for/against something that isn't going to change.

Your tax bill went up? Well cry me a river. Life ain't fare. No one cares. Deal with it.

How's the saying go?? Nothing in life is guaranteed except death and taxes. Just be glad you're dealing with the latter and not the former.

I highly suspect that you're getting your info from dubious and biased sources. Otherwise expert economic analysis would know that monetary policy is set at the federal level and by the Fed. I think you meant to say fiscal policy which states, cities, municipalities can set. And that's real Economics 101. But you know if Rush, Hannity & Levin say it, it must be right [end sarcasm].

I have to agree that giving 20+ year abatements to downtown developers is leaving a bad taste in my mouth about Fulop. There's more than enough inertia in that real estate market to sustain development without corporate welfare. And I'm frankly surprised when people defend this level of nepotism.

Where did you see/read that she was a "drug whore"? I thought the cops were still awaiting a autopsy report.

This is going to be a long cold winter.

The Dems love employees and they hate employers. Company taxes and capital gains taxes will increase. Obama will basically tax inspiration...

It's probably going to end up like Sweden. 60% income tax that is distributed by a big government. Everyone might as well be living in a pod.

Still, at least you can travel to France and not get verbally abused!



You sound like an idiot. I wonder if you look like one also? More importantly... your friends in finance probably helped cause this mess that we're in. So excuse me if I give a s**t about what they say or what you say.

That Wright character, although intelligent, has proven to be a egomaniac & terribly destructive to Obama. But if Obama can survive this, he can survive anything.

Too boring? All the more reason to have sex.

Too hard to live in? Man you left yourself really open for some pervert jokes with that line. But I'll let you slide.

I'm one of the few people who think that him getting beaten up last night was a good thing. He has a significant lead & may have forgotten what a tough & dirty game politics is. Last night was a great reminder that all's fair in love, war & politics. Hopefully he'll use it to sharpen his sword & refocus on what challenges he has ahead of him.

The first thing that I did not like was when he was willing to call unilateral military strikes in Pakistan if intelligence warranted it. To me this is very much in line with the Bush Doctrine.


I don't know of any presidential candidate that ALWAYS oppose the use of unilateral action. The only question is which candidate is more apt to use it.

Obama always mentions mending ties with the international community. Which makes me more apt to believe that unilateral action would be a last resort.

Quote:

Second, I was never for the war....but how does Obama and Hillary propose...pulling the troops out...when most likely the results will be disastrous for Iraq and most likely in time for the world.


If that's the case, I'm kind of suspicious of your claim that you were for Obama at first because that's been his position for years. In fact it's been one of the main points of his campaign. Did you just realized that he wanted out of Iraq?

Quote:

Also, i don't think he will deliver on universal healthcare. That is the one thing that i think Hillary will deliver to the American people. This is a very important issue to me.


It's very important to many people & will be a huge undertaking for any president.

anyone know anything about this?


This just means that the program is available in HD. But whether Comcast carries the HD channel that carries the show is a different story.

There are many HD channels that Comcast doesn't carry yet.

Mr_Bunny... don't change the subject. (Something many Obama detractors claim he did with his speech.) Brian_em's original post had no mention of Farrakhan.

You agreed 100% to everything he said. So I took the both of you to task about it & to post evidence in your defense. How did you guys respond? No evidence.. just opinion & conjecture.

I'm still waiting for mr_bunny or brian_em to show me a youtube clip of Wright preaching children to "hate white people" & stating that "white people are un-evolved humans".

Isn't it interesting that they can't find one after all this time.
