    Thank you. How many people in total have taken part in the protests? Do we have any realistic numbers for that? Again, I'm not supporting or defending any of this, just...

  2. Adfundum replied to the thread How the Washington Post sees the rioters.

    And I appreciate your view of things. As an analogy, if some Right-Wingers show up at a protest and engage in rioting and violence, should we blame Right-Wingers for not...

    I think the question at the top is a valid question. Can we put say those who are not supporting some kind of force to stop the protests are in support of the riots?

    Please explain that. What gives you that impression? I'm asking because as I see it, people are not liking the protests, but are arguing against the way one group of media...

    What numbers are you using to support that claim?

    How many people - here at PF, for example - support rioting? And do you have some kind of link that says Portland city admin supports rioting?

    Yes, people just choose a side. I think this shows how we can see the same thing differently. Protesting is at the core of our nation. The Boston Tea Party wasn't without...

  8. Adfundum replied to the thread How the Washington Post sees the rioters.

    Do we know how many rioters there are in comparison the peaceful protestors? I don't support the rioting and violence in any way shape or form--my point is that we never seem...

  9. Adfundum liked CenterField's post in the thread Bikers descend on Sturgis rally with few signs of pandemic.

    Thanks. Apologies accepted. It's always refreshing to see someone who acknowledges a mistake (I do, too; just recently did in another thread). Sure, it's part of the...

    Then I was mistaken to say you were, my apologies. Just that I have seen so much of it here, I should argue it with them, not you. Covid is now part of the landscape, we cant...

  11. Adfundum liked CenterField's post in the thread Bikers descend on Sturgis rally with few signs of pandemic.

    I wasn't one of those so no hypocrisy from me. When people directly asked me (at the time of Trump's Tulsa rally), what I said is that I thought that BOTH the large protesting...

  12. Adfundum liked CenterField's post in the thread Bikers descend on Sturgis rally with few signs of pandemic.

    Again, do I look to you like some sort of looting defender, or riot defender? Please kindly point to ONE post in my posting history where I appeared to defend these things....

    According to this one German study I quoted, 78% had heart damage which they worried would result in heart failure a few years down the road. Not confirmed by larger studies,...

    I think it evolved later with more people sick and dying, I think I saw a final IFR of 1.4 but in view of what you said, maybe I'm mistaken.

  15. Adfundum liked CenterField's post in the thread Bikers descend on Sturgis rally with few signs of pandemic.

    Yes, it's kind of mind-boggling that with all the mounting evidence to the contrary, there are still people who yell "it's just like the flu!" The level of misinformation that...

  16. Adfundum liked CenterField's post in the thread Bikers descend on Sturgis rally with few signs of pandemic.

    Sure, "most"people come out OK... But it's not the whole story. First of all because the "most"who recover from the seasonal flu are much more numerous, given that its IFR is...

    Do you see a problem in how these people are portrayed in the media?

    What do you see as the problem with the article?

    Yes, I trust no media, and MoJo slants everything - even when it does not have to.

    I agree, but my question was more rhetorical in the sense that we need to question what we're reading. I'm still linking back to my previous idea--that even Mother Jones can...

    Can you spot the loaded language in that paragraph? What's factual, what's assumption, and what is the main idea here?

    I'm one of those 90%'rs. The only problem is that facts may be there, but how they're presented changes how we interpret them. It goes back to the protests/riots thing....
