re: Florida Covid deaths close to zero - AlterEgo89
That doesn't say what you think it does. You've shown a graph that shows the rate of deaths, not the total number of deaths. The total number of deaths has been averaging around 350 per day this past week in Texas. In Florida, the total number of deaths per day this past week has been 326 deaths ...

The restaurant has the right to refuse the patron. The restaurant is providing a meal you clown. I didn't say the patron was providing a service, I said the business was. ...

That's your choice. You have the right to patronize businesses you agree with. Businesses have the right to deny people service if they feel they're endangering the rest of their customer base and as long as they're not discriminating based on protected characteristics. ...

[quote]The VAT is basically a national sales tax. I don't see that passing in the U.S. any time soon, although I could get behind it if it was replacing the income tax. [/quote] Effectively, yeah. I'm actually in favor of reducing income taxes + lowering corporate taxes + implementing a VAT. ...

re: Whistle blower Josh Snider... MBMC Hospital admin lied to the public. Who else has lied? - AlterEgo89
There's also a shortage of ICU doctors. It's not like you can magic up doctors over night - it takes years to train them. Staffing doesn't just mean nursing - it also means doctors as well. And that's exactly the problem - hospitals haven't got as many ICU nurses as they need right now because t...

re: Liberal Folks, Should We Tax the Rich? - AlterEgo89
Well, you'd have to tax people making less than $400,000. US tax brackets are much more wide than European tax brackets. I suppose some folks would want our tax system to replicate a European tax system. For example, Germany's top tax bracket kicks in at roughly $200,000 while the US top tax bra...

re: Liberal Folks, Should We Tax the Rich? - AlterEgo89
That's how progressive taxation is meant to work. The basic idea is that the marginal utility of money decreases as you get richer i.e. it hurts less for a rich person to be taxed more than a poor person being taxed more. The ratio of total AGI versus share of all income tax paid doesn't se...

re: Has anyone been actually confronted for not wearing a mask? - AlterEgo89
Nope. I don't wear a mask. I'm vaccinated and the issue isn't transmission, it's hospitalization. The virus will transmit no matter what happens. People should get vaccinated so they don't get hospitalized if they're vulnerable. That's the entire problem - vulnerable people haven't got va...

I mean the reality is, you really shouldn't be needing to take Ivermectin unless you're quite vulnerable to the pandemic in the first place. The virus is pretty much harmless to most people. There's no need to preemptively take medicine when most people don't need it. ...

re: New Study shows vaccine doesn't prevent Delta infection - AlterEgo89
There were only around 100,000 deaths from the virus in the UK. The UK government predicts that there are around 300,000-400,000 vulnerable people at risk of the virus. The pool is not that much smaller because the UK underwent lockdown (and those lockdowns reduced the peak from 1000 deaths to less ...
