To not point the finger at COVID, what are the totals in SLO County death certificates for the years\, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020? That number would be interesting because it would not blame those who don’t wear seat belts, don’t wear helmets, are obese, diabetic, or just fragile for whatever reason and caught a bad bug. Then again, there is that what if, capital punishment were legal, treason justice was enforced and ignorance was not an excuse again too.

How do you say you are a Covid denier without saying you are a Covid denier.

“Then again, there is that what if” Whataboutism is a type of logical fallacy that occurs when a person attempts to divert the focus away from the current issue by making a counter-accusation.

I would love to see some justice on the treasonous capitol attackers and those they serve. the far right has taken up the ignorance banner

17 people dead in a week nothing to look at here.

…and the drop in numbers has nothing to do with the new masking mandate, right?

Oh, no, no. I attribute the drop to the masking fetishists who voluntarily double and triple mask for the betterment of society.

If you have not been vaxxed, double the mask when flying with a N95 on the outside on the plane, or get fully vaxxed.
