Gov. Beshear is doing (the) same thing as the other Democrat governors are, making coronavirus sound worse than (it) truly is, at this time. Using scare tactics to get what they want, mail-in ballots for November election. Democrats know, by the 2016 election, they cannot beat President Trump. Trump won 2,597 counties and Hillary just won 468 counties. Everybody knows mail-in ballots are (a) great way (to) commit voter fraud. Beshear cannot overrule a circuit judge without getting sued by half of Kentuckians.

Beshear must not know how to read, everybody read Constitution Amendment 14. Nobody can do anything contrary to the Constitution. Since 2008 Democrats do exactly what they want. Beshear would not be governor if (he) had not lied to teachers that he would not cut teachers pension fund. Bevin told teachers the truth about pensions, Beshear's father took too much money out of their pension funds. Beshear is a lying crooked dictator that teachers alone will vote him out. If any Kentuckian citizens are forced or arrested for not wearing mask, you have a Constitutional judge that has already warned Beshear about his (so-called) executive orders could not be enforced. Basically if you let Democrats break one small law, next time (it will) be bigger, finally get want they want no more Constitution or Bill of Rights, America will be communist.

Unless there's a drastic reduction in death rates, COVID-19 will likely end up being the third leading cause of death in the U.S. this year, behind heart disease and cancer. Exactly how bad would it have to get before you think we ought to take a few simple steps to try to save lives?

Wearing a mask and social distancing will help cut down on the number of people who are sick and dying from this virus. Spreading speculation about voter fraud and communism is just a distraction.

Enough Already

If you are at all objective you would admit most of what Mr. Willoughby said is accurate. The masks are anything you decide to use and they are like a screen door to a virus. Even N-95 masks are not effective on a virus and most people are not wearing an N-95.

As far as democrats go they cannot be trusted. The idea that a voter ID is racist is BS. The entire world requires an ID to vote but the democrat party says it is racist and yet requires one to get into there events. You can do virtually no business with government without an ID but democrats say it is racist. A ballot by mail that cannot be protected from fraud is a democrats dream.Today's distraction can easily become tomorrows news.

Since I am attempting to be objective, I will not simply agree with either Mr. Willoughby or with you. I like to form my conclusions based on credible scientific research, not on other people's opinions, and I try to avoid sweeping generalizations and insulting those who may not share my views.

Enough Already

Fair enough!

You feign objectivity. Some of us know better and such has been conclusively demonstrated on innumerable occasions. Allow me to once again put my money where my mouth is.

Your source, allow me to put this in terms you can understand, sucks. And is therefore;

Rejected; Due to lack of peer reviewed, objectively demonstrated, evidence. (In this case, in spite of the evidence contravening your submittal.)

Revise; With the inclusion of empirical data supporting your 'theory' and either,

Resubmit or Retract; As a check on your 'objectivity'.

Of the eight studies Denis G. Rancourt cites, none of them provides any evidence to support his claim that masks do not work in reducing the spread of viruses. As I've instructed in the past, one must read beyond the headlines, and in this case a blog entry allegedly pointing to the studies to support his/your claim. Many of his 'evidences' have nothing to do with mask utilization mitigation studies and more than a couple are dead links, and outdated models. You are sciencing wrong here chief.

You said: Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, etc....

I say: COVID 19 virus particle size is 125 nanometers (0.125 microns); the range is 0.06 microns to .14 microns. The N95 mask filters down to 0.3 microns. In addition the masks have to be fitted properly to be able to filter much of anything. Any leak creates a vacuum when you inhale and sucks those little buggers right inside of your N-95. Healthcare workers have caught this virus while tending to patients and they are the most likely to be careful about fit and seal. The healthcare workers that encase themselves in a disposable suit and hi-tech breathing apparatus with a filter and not just a N-95 are much more likely to avoid infection. You don't see any of those outside of a hospital setting. Joe Smoo in the grocery store is running around with a rag over his face that looks cool and he looks safe, but he's not. Most people are taking the fashionable route with a trendy cloth mask that is useless. N95 masks block few, if any.

Here is some information that indicates the powers to be are not to be trusted. https://retractionwatch.com/retracted-coronavirus-covid-19-papers/

Koheleth

Have you a cogent point or are you once again just trying to save face?

I know that the scientific method is difficult to comprehend, if not outright heretical, for a YEC minded literalist individual such as yourself, but you have decided to dip your toes into the waters of scientific epistemology.

Gonna be expected to bring the goods when we're talking science fella.

Just like in your previous post you are utterly flailing. There's nothing in this latest offering that challenges this brute fact.

Silly me. Forgot to link this with my reply.

Enjoy.

I knew of no retraction at the time I posted so it appears that you were right, this time. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn occasionally. Enjoy your meal.

I have no credentials and neither do you but these people do and say you are wrong.dohttps://youtu.be/L7_i7P74734

PS

They may have retracted this study on masks, but real doctors, the kind who have risked their lives actually working on COVID patients are still not on board with your so-called science, and in fact validate what I have said. I have no credentials and neither do you but these people do and they say you are wrong.

Enjoy.

One more thing.

Apparently I have not gotten but half of the notifications I should have gotten and did not know you or anyone else had posted more lies and half-truths until I finally got a notification that pointed me back to a couple of posts. So, thank you for letting me know so I could answer and set the set the record straight and blow you away, yet again...

I have a kindred spirit and can't understand why those who fail to wear masks or distance just don't get it especially with all of the experts advocating otherwise and the numbers from the virus skyrocketing on daily basis phenomenally. Really are some of us that dense?
