I agree. And since everyone else who is canceled is going without pay...
We'll have 3.5 million more people getting unemployment.

And your post is condescending. You don't like my opinion, then ignore it as I will share it non the less.  But I know that offends your sensibilities as only those views you agree with are permitted.
No, I'm not going to just allow your spread of misinformation.  Sorry/not sorry.  The earth isn't flat, bud.

This is where you show you're out of your depth here.  You're posting this for a disease that is 70-80% asymptomatic.  Please stop.
You first.

If someone is asymptomatic, exactly how are they spreading the virus? If are not coughing and sneezing the presence of other people, how are they spreading it? I've been told it's not the actual virus itself, but water droplets that it is attached too. Are these people spitting on you? Are they french kissing you against your will?

If you have a problem with actual discussion, I don't know what to tell you. I've put myself out there telling what I think and my observations. So far, you nor anyone else has convinced me that I am wrong as the data that I've seen/read seems to contradict itself many times. What that happens, I start to look at why these things are being perpetuated. In other words, I know bullshit when I see it.

Every district I know here in AZ is offering 3 options, once the online-only mandate expires:
1 - in-person
2 - online quarter-by-quarter, then in-person when the parents deem it safe
3 - online only for the whole year


Online learning was poor in the spring because it was a sudden, unplanned switch.  It should be better in the fall and going forward.  If you find it's exactly the same as the spring, your school district sucks.

Got links to those studies?
Who would gain by getting Americans (and the entire rest of the world) to "submit" to wearing masks?
This is from the New England Journal of Medicine. I consider it credible.

I've been told it's not the actual virus itself, but water droplets that it is attached too. Are these people spitting on you? Are they french kissing you against your will?

They're doing all the same things that traditionally spread germs.  They're rubbing their eyes, picking their nose, cough from a dry throat, etc and before washing their hands for a particular reason, they're using doorknobs, typing in pin numbers, high-fiving friends and shaking acquaintance's hands.  Do you really not know this???

If you have a problem with actual discussion, I don't know what to tell you. I've put myself out there telling what I think and my observations.

I tend to doubt anything is going to convince you that you're wrong, unless it's an obscure, far-right website the rest of the world deems absurd.

Who died and made you king of all Covid information? Again, if you don't care for what I post, don't read it.

It sure won't be a closed minded, left wing activist that will change my mind. Again, I have read/listened to arguments from all sides and what I have seen to date tells me that the whole mask thing is mostly bullshit. Again, if you don't agree, so be it. You do you and I'll do me.

You bypass/skip/ignore the 20 studies that say you're wrong so that you can cite the 2 that agree with you.  Again, stop it.

https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp2006372

That is an opinion piece, from April 1, with no data.  It also says wearing a mask without also emphasizing other items like hand washing MAY be a disadvantage, maybe.

The only reason to consider it credible is if one believed it already.  There is quite a bit of other work that includes hard data and says masks reduce transfer significantly, and then there is the obvious experience of Asian countries where mask wearing is socially demanded.

This would imply that if I was asymptomatic, I wouldn't cough or sneeze at all, and I do both. 

Shoot, have I had corona for years?

Not necessarily. It would be an interesting case.

In my experience as employer, I've fought off a lot of unemployment claims made by people who voluntarily left my company, and I won them all.

If there are teachers (entire unions??) who voluntarily choose to not report to work, how is that different?

That second one feels all sorts of dodgy. 

We're living in a weird age of dodgy content. I made some comments about hope mongering earlier, and it strikes me as an interesting phenomenon. 

Anyway, it's entirely possible the mask thing isn't helping all that much, but the reasons often brought forth don't seem to have a tone of backing. But I find myself thinking about QB battles and their logic. You can call for the QB to be benched because you think the backup is better. The logical underpinnings of that are probably not very strong at all, but you might also turn out to be correct.

I'm just curious.

Like they just said "I quit" and then went on unemployment?
