@Gritzblitz 2.0 Isn't this quote a little misleading without context? 

It's the literal full content of an email the NY Times sent out overnight. The only other text I didn't post was:

"The Delta variant is more transmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, according to the document.

The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said."

I was not intending to blame you.  It was irresponsible by the Times.

Meanwhile, with the CDC admonishing us to get vaccinated, Republicans are increasingly attacking the CDC.  I am infuriated.  How much of an overreach is it to accuse these guys of mass murder?

“When you tell them they can get vaccinated and then take their mask off and then you turn around weeks later and reverse that, who’s gonna trust anybody, any politician, Republican, Democrat, or otherwise?” Kemp said.

The CDC kind of invited much of this by being so inconsistent in their messaging through the entire pandemic. And when you have one party only interested The Culture War of the Week and not the public good, of course this is going to happen.

What would have happened if Fauci had come out and said "Masks, especially N 95, are somewhat effective in limiting COVID transmission.  HOWEVER, we got caught short with our supply chain, and front line workers DESPERATELY need those same masks so please limit your purchases and do not hoard masks"?

 

Hint:  Toilet paper was being sold at 100 times retail cost on ebay.

What would have been the most appropriate message from the CDC at that time?

What message would be best for the public interest?

I mean it's a complicated issue but not the absolute opposite of the truth and tell folks masks do nothing.

Look, I'm still of the belief that cloth masks are next to useless, but the CDC messed up from the jump when they withheld the truth, despite their intentions. 

You have to trust the public with the truth. They got caught backtracking and it's a big reason there's so much vaccine hesitancy now.

Thanks for the responses . . . . 

Now do you want to actually answer the questions?

Gritz, How do you "trust the public with the truth" when you know you can't trust the public with the truth?

There are millions of Karen's that prove, unfortunately, she's a very real person in America 

Sinema isn't a Karen.  She's a former Progressive who got bought by the Kochs/Chamber of Commerce and does their bidding while making a perforance out of it.  She's waaaaaaaaay worse than any Karen.

Aren't questions about Dak Prescott's injury a violation of his HIPAA rights? Asking for a friend.

 

 

Montra for anyone who has had a shoulder issue:  There is a reason why Major League Managers walk so slowly to the mound.

So…. Does that mean you can start saying…. 
 

Don’t be a Sinema? Which would potentially cause confusion as they wouldn’t understand we weren’t taking about movies. :shrug:
