There is such a thing as the irrational belief in American exceptionalism, but there is also another side of the coin to this.  Americans are certainly not exceptional, but we are also certainly not inferior and  immoral based solely upon our nationality. No one is no matter where they are from.  There are plenty of racist, bigots and nationalist all over the world who feel that some are superior and others are inferior based solely on physical characteristics or nationality.  Not a club I would want to be a part of.    You can be disappointed in idiots and scared, I get that,  but methinks you are being a bit dramatic with the anti American self loathing.   Want to know what is also irrational?  Feeling shame for the actions and behavior of others, an advantage of being individualistic is you are not burdened by such things.  Be someone that you will not be ashamed of and you should feel no shame.  You cannot and should not try to control others, only show them by example and hope they also take up a path to  enlightenment and compassion.

it is easy to get down, i know from personal experience

unfortunately the disease is going to run it's course and do what it does

i don't want to sound callous about that, so don't take that the wrong way peeps

some really smart people did some data comparison with europe and estimated a toll of 200k here

that's hard to think about

stay safe

Florida reports one-day record with 120 Covid-19 deaths
Sharp rise in fatalities sends financial markets lower on concerns pandemic is worsening
Florida has recorded its biggest single-day increase in coronavirus-related deaths since the start of the pandemic, sending the stock market lower on fears the latest US outbreak could lead to another surge in fatalities.

The total of 120 deaths reported by Florida on Thursday was more than double the 48 recorded the day before and follows weeks of declining fatalities in the state. It comes as several other Sun Belt states have recorded sharp rises in deaths.

Texas on Wednesday reported a one-day record for the state of 98 while Arizona reported 75 fatalities on Thursday, also more than double the day before. The Arizona tally brings its seven-day average to almost 68, the highest it has been during the pandemic.

As stated below: it’s not the cost of that drug. It’s the cost of running that development and research company and all the buildings, utilities, personnel (including lawyers), and production and distribution.

To be fair, it's not just the cost of remdesiviir. It is the cost of the 27 other attempts you had to try before finding the one that works, and the cost of keeping the lights on and the trash taken out while you did all that other development without any associated revenue. Research is expensive, it usually pays off, but getting there incurs costs which have to be recovered eventually. 
 
Plus, if you're not sure the drug is going to be unique or long in the marketplace, you need to recoup those costs asap.

You forgot to ask why I hate America and want to stifle dissent and what I have against puppies.

You also seem obsessed with my labeling of this urologist as "right wing" when really it's a pretty trivial point—which I'm not going to belabor. The point I was trying to get across earlier is that hysteria from one faction is not countered by hysteria from another, it's countered by reasoned debate and evidence.


You called me out for argument from authority, and while unintended, I acknowledged it and owned it. Here, I call you out for a non-obvious labeling of "right-wing", whatever that means, and you get all huffy.  Okay then. Noted.

I wrote:
The Lancet has a long sad history of high profile retractions - they own 3/10 of top 10 most highly cited retracted papers - as of May 2019!   This latest massive retraction for the COVID-19 study is just another to add to their trophy case.  Don't try too hard to defend them - that would be a losing proposition.  These are the wages of a repeatedly tattered reputation.


3/10 of top 10 most highly cited retracted papers!   Making the Top 10 list is an achievement - but three times! That's ... skill.

 Lazy8 wrote:

The Lancet is one of the most prestigious medical publications in the world because they have high standards. By your metric they could enhance their credibility by lowering their standards and issuing fewer retractions. You will not save your boy's reputation by disparaging that of people who spend their careers making us all healthier.


By my metric? You have misunderstood what I was saying.  Again: The Lancet has some major long-running issues. They are a shining example of how things go wrong, repeatedly, in the world of scientific paper publishing.

You clearly have acquired zero understanding of my motivations or specifics of my support for some things Trump, if you believe my interest in this topic & posts are to 'save my boy's reputation'. Though your continued unyielding defense of The Lancet, as esteemed and organization as it may be, reveals who 'your boy' is.

Thanks for the, err, discussion.
