...our government is sending 2 million doses of hydroxychloroquine to Brazil.  Why are we sending a drug that doesn’t work?  Oh my are we being scammed. I knew that was a drug that was working. To much evidence that it works. All evidence against it are bad trials or studies that had to be revoked.

You have to many brain dead morons like our resident know it all who believes the lies of the MSM and Democrats because Trump recommended using it.

It's been used by doctors and hospitals successfully bit just here but also in other countries but the MSM will never tell you that.

Among patients hospitalized with mild-to-moderate Covid-19, the use of hydroxychloroquine, alone or with azithromycin, did not improve clinical status at 15 days as compared with standard care.

So, it's possible it has some benefit if given early in the infection.  The other clinical results appear to be negative.  It's too bad, I think we'd all hope it had more effectiveness.  Maybe it has some, it's clearly not some "cure".  I'm amused, still, that because Trump mentioned it repeatedly, folks here are still believing it works, because a politician mentioned it a few times.

I trust the data, the results of clinical trials.

Well it might be ok if the clinical showed it so, but then are the clinicals doing the trials in conjunction with the other med's? I don’t know but from where I I don’t see it. IN fact I don’t see much of nothing but my opinion matters as the universe revolves around me. I don’t care what LeBron or however you spell his name says. But on the other hand a lot of anecdotal evidence out there, a lot of Doctors are swearing by it, but if it comes down to it, I'd rather for me and mine die as it has not been proven .

Wait where was I? I don't know. But you bet your bottom dollar I will show my ass, err be a ass errr demonize someone err change the subject. Yep that's what I do I'll change the subject, I think but then......

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
