going to do that in my own house!) but otherwise

The bug doesn't care if you're in your own house.
I don't think our community is doing trick or treat

germ bags breathing on me and mine.
Which how it should be handled.
If you're scared of the disease, don't participate.

If you're not scared, have fun.
The government should stay out of it. It's none of

Sure. We all believe an anonymous klown on Usenet, instead

do, but the risk is not zero. And those between the ages of
10 and 19 can spread the virus at least as well as adults
So, while they don't have as serious symptoms, they do

And how many fucking times does it take to get a moron to
understand that THIS IS NOT LIKE THE FLU.
I didn't say it was 'like' the flu. I said that for children,
flu is far more deadly.
You compared the virus directly TO the flu, klown.
No, I said the flu is far more deadly to children than Wuhan is.
not saying Wuhan is 'like' the flu.
You sure did put the two side by side in the same breath.
Which is not the definition of asserting two different things are
'like' one another.
You've put Trump and Biden side by side in the same breath. Does that
mean you've said Biden is 'like' Trump?

Please... there is a DIRECT inference that the flu isn't all that
much worse than covid.
No, it's a statement of fact that for CHILDREN, the flu is deadlier
The kids in BH should just go as BLM protesters for Halloween.
cops would have to leave them alone and the virus would ignore them.
Show me where BLM activists are going from home to home taking
And stop comparing a mostly unknown deadly virus to the flu. It isn't
ANYTHING like the flu.
I didn't compare it to the flu or say it's 'like' the flu. I said the
flu is factually deadlier FOR CHILDREN than Wuhan is.
We don't know what the flu will be like yet or children.
Yes, we actually do know what children are like. Humans have been having
them for hundreds of thousands of years.
Nope. Covid is too new to say what the long term effects are.
But that isn't what you said. You didn't say Wuhan. You said the flu.
FPP: "We don't know what the flu will be like yet or children."
Only brilliant scientists like you can see the future.
Or actual scientists who have been dealing with both children and the
flu for generations.

gone through a flu season in which we have been observing these new
protocols. All we know are the numbers from past seasons where we DON'T
social distance. Where we DON'T disinfect everything around us. Where
we DON'T wear masks and gloves, and use hand sanitizer.
There may be dramatically fewer flu deaths in children
That doesn't change the fact that the flu is a deadlier disease for
kids than Wuhan is.
Only because the normal flu case numbers don't take into account the
covid measures we're currently taking. If we weren't doing what we are,
they covid cases would dwarf the seasonal flu numbers.
And the flu will nevertheless still be a deadlier disease for children
You can lock a kid in a sterile bubble and he'll never get any disease,
but that won't change the mortality rates of all diseases for his age
You may never get Ebola because you live on the opposite side of the
world from its reservoir, but that doesn't change the fact that Ebola is
vastly more deadly than Wuhan.

And, once again, you ignore the obvious fact that when children DO get
it, they'll bring it back home
Which wasn't what you claimed. You claimed that parents who allow
trick-or-treating are endangering their *kids*, not themselves.
And there go those goalposts again.
Nope. It's both. I never said covid ONLY affected just the children.
That's what you'd LIKE me to have said - but I didn't. Boo-hoo for you...
We've never experienced this before, but we know covid can make kids
sick, and even kill them.
Not nearly with the frequency the flu does.
Because we isolated.
No, because the disease isn't as lethal to individuals in that age range
as the flu is.
If you took 200 young kids and exposed 100 of them to Wuhan and 100 to
the flu, statistically, less than one of the Wuhan kids would even get
sick and none would die. Conversely, the flu would sicken 60-70% of
them, and there'd be a significant chance of several deaths.
You're FULL of shit, Dr Supergenius. The flu is a RESPIRATORY disease.
It's looking like covid is a VASCULAR disease.
"Frank Ruschitzka told his pathologist to be ready before the first
COVID-19 patient died. In early March, Ruschitzka, who leads the
cardiology department at University Hospital Zürich, noticed that
patients with the disease had strange symptoms for what was then thought
to be chiefly a respiratory infection. Many patients had acute kidney
failure, organ damage, and mysterious blood clots. Several weeks later,
the first body was autopsied: Tiny clots and dead cells littered the
capillaries of the lungs, and inflammation had distended blood vessels
supplying every organ in the body.
The pathologist had never seen anything like it. But the results showed
Ruschitzka why his patients were suffering so much: The virus had
targeted their blood vessels."
Show me a flu, Dr. Supergenius, that targets blood vessels - which
affects EVERY organ in the body. Stick to pretending what you're better at.
"Since the Zürich team’s findings were published in mid-April, dozens of
studies have revealed similar patterns of vascular damage in people who
died of COVID-19. For example, a 21 May paper in The New England Journal
of Medicine showed that the lungs of COVID-19 victims had nine times as
many clots as those who died of the H1N1 flu. Other studies have noted
inflammatory symptoms in children and strokes in otherwise healthy young
adults. Now, researchers have woven these findings into a new hypothesis
explaining why some patients slip into a fatal “second phase” of
COVID-19, 1 week or so after hospitalization."
There's nothing more American than demanding to carry an AR-15 to
"protect yourself" but refusing to wear a mask to protect everyone else.
If you hired a guy to "Make My House Great Again", and he hired his
incompetent children, stole your money, gave it away to your richest
neighbors, let everyone get sick, killed your grandma, backed over your
mailbox, burned down your house and blamed it on your black friends next
door... would YOU hire him AGAIN?
