I had promised myself I would no longer argue with ignorant people that choose to ignore facts.

Just so we’re clear here…

Tony Fauci is one of the most respected medical scientists of our generation. He was at the forefront of the fight in the AIDS epidemic 40 years ago. Those of us in the medical community were aware and respectful of him long before COVID came along…

This is your OPINION...Not fact.

If you don’t want to familiarize yourself with his many accomplishments, it’s because you choose to be ignorant.

I respect his many accomplishments. I also criticize his faults. I noticed you left out all the “negatives” about Fauci. Does that mean you CHOSE to be ignorant about the man’s record? I would never say that about your omissions...but there are differing debate/decorum tactics for all...

A 20 second google search finds a simple summary of his lifelong accomplishments.

It indeed will. It will also illuminate how “complex”(controversial) a figure he has been clear back to those days he was “at the forefront of the fight in the AIDS epidemIc...”

I will now once again try to avoid arguing with ignorant people..

At least I got “the ad hominem crowd” right.

I sincerely am sorry that my opinion that “he’s more politician than scientist anyhow” has led you out of retirement to call names.

That he is one of the most respected authorities in his field isn’t opinion. It’s an objective fact.

I wish you’d go in to retirement. You contribute nothing and only troll here when you can make it political.

As opposed to your dislike of him for your purely political reasons lol

I dislike the man's politics. It is too bad that I even know his politics given his advisory position.

As for gain of function, I've read a few actual non partisan articles about this and it's not cut and dry like you're saying.

In its very best light, he was conflating and obfuscating. A 20-second Google search on the topic will show his FOIA emails and a subsequent need to apologize or "set the record straight" regarding his NIH funding gain of function…

To be honest, I don't even believe your background at this point because all I (have) ever see(n) out of you isn't anything that makes me feel like you don't just talk out of your anus to back up your claims. Over the years I've seen you spout back outright propaganda.

If you had any actual receipts to back the claim… I'd be glad to look at them and even apologize if warranted.

Absent those receipts...and this is just more ad hominem. At least you are creatively calling me a "liar." There were so many "ignorants" in the prior post that it was reading mundane.

Not that I expect you to care what I think of you, you shouldn't, we don't know each other. But I don't believe you and I see you as merely someone who likes to troll and will say anything to try and sound as if you're an authority, thinking everyone you're talking to isn't smart enough to see through your absolute bull crap.

You know what they say after everything after the "but "...

That he is one of the most respected authorities in his field isn’t opinion. It’s an objective fact.

That there are hundreds (thousands?) of respected authorities who think he is more politician than scientist THESE days is an “objective fact” too…by that (jaded?) definition.

The word “respect” by definition is subjective.

The ad hominem directed toward me isn’t because you’re mad I have an agenda. It is because my agenda is different than yours. You will have to look deep in your own soul to figure out why my OPINION on Dr. Fauci leads you and others to call names.

Now provide your receipts for the claims you make.

Seriously it doesn’t matter though. I believe every small anecdotal detail you’ve given about yourself is fake. I think you’re a troll that’s addicted to the drama and toxicity.

I’m in the process of being diagnosed and treated for ADHD so at least I’m aware of why *I* like to argue online.

Also, where did I call you a name? I don’t even know your gender so I refer to you as They/Them.

See? you can’t even be right about how people are attacking you.

edit: never mind. I called you a troll. Because ducks quack.

Aamilj said: “A “career public servant” seems like a reasonable description of Fauci. That’s somewhere between politician and scientist. I’d say you have to be astute in politics to serve as many different administrations as he has.

Or, you know, you’d have to be really really good at your job and one of the most well respected in your field.


But then again, what do I know?

Sincerely sorry... I have the EXACT diagnosis (Adult version). I didn't bother to get help until about 7-8 years ago, though. Have they tried the Adderal on you yet? Or just the therapy? Probably too personal...

Anyhow...good luck with that!

I like to debate for fun. I don’t understand all the vitriol though. I don’t care if people share my views and am friends with tons who don’t. Luckily I truly don’t give a crap…

I’m a he by the way.

edit: never mind. I called you a troll.

And a liar. Don’t forget liar… Even if you never actually used that word… :)

P.S. The link you provided doesn’t work. No clue what I’ve said that upset you…

I don’t trust you or what you’ve said because when asked to provide actual sources, you hemhaw around and then give an article from a biased source.

The link was just to your profile’s page that has every comment. I was being flippant, implying that many of those comments were problematic.

As for being upset, I’m not upset. I don’t give that kind of power to anonymous people on the internet. Annoyed, like by a nat would be a more apt word.

Coasterbuzz is an old internet community. There are others here that lean or full on are conservative. That’s not my problem.

You’ve been here long enough but no one that I’ve seen seems to know much to authenticate you. That’s fine. Being super private is fine even if it makes me mistrust what you say and post.

My issue with you is how you’ve always come across as intentionally condescending and more than, regardless of if you mean to or not. It’s the implication that comes across in your posts, which tend to take the political a step further always, that you’re trolling. If you come out and say “hey, I like drama and arguing on the internet”, I would at least respect that, because I too like arguing and internet drama. It doesn’t affect my real life, and can be entertaining. M

Instead you come across as too bothered to back your $#!+ up, and in a condescending manor that suggests you’re annoyed that people who have known you only by a vague screen name should dare question you. It all seems too rehearsed.

These new observations everyday are fascinating, but troubling since they don't answer the question about how sick they generally can make you. If it partially evades vaccination, that's only concerning if it potentially makes your very sick. If the opposite is true and previous variants subside, it's like we hit the lottery. The thing is, it's going to spread faster than any study, so the answers will come from infected people first.

This starts streaming on Hulu 12/5. I imagine it goes a lot deeper than the soundbites we heard from healthcare workers.

THAT (referring to Jeff's 9:37 post) is what I am wondering.

As of last night's news there were 10 known Omicron variant cases in the USA in 6 states, 9 of them among people vaccinated for COVID-19, 1 not...and 0 hospitalizations. Okay, so maybe it's hyper-contagious. But if it doesn't produce serious illness or kill people, then it has the potential to be a pandemic-ending variant. If its reproduction 'squeezes out' Delta and we have people coming down with this thing at an alarming rate...but few if any of them get terribly sick, then is it really a problem? It will gradually inoculate the population and burn itself out.

In other news relative to Gonch's link, I was kind of hoping that the COVID vaccine would be non-selective enough to help against some of those common cold strains. Sounds like it isn't.

In case you had any doubt:
Pro-Trump counties now have far higher COVID death rates. Misinformation is to blame.
