that's from October 15, 2021

someone just decided to recycle it...that is pre-omicron

it's over pete...you can wear you mask to bed if you like and get boostered every three months..leave everyone else alone...good luck

ps the difference was...

"The rate of infection reached an average of about 45 cases per 100 thousand students by late September in school districts with mask mandates.

Virus spread was 62% higher in school districts without mask rules- where the infection rate averaged 73 cases per 100 thousand students by late September.

45 cases per 100,000 vs 72 cases per 1000,000

I bet the kids without the masks were much happier and healthier

I See them every day on and off the bus masks on even while waiting . must be that indoctrination, kids just adapt better than adults

yet Mexican kids cross the border alone Syrian kids live in camps but American kids are being abused because of a masks?

We all would be happier without Masks , I-am sure Americans all would have been happier if WW2 didn’t take 4 years but it did

Yet conservatives had no issues being in Afghanistan for 20years yet Covid is upsetting ?

"Mexican kids cross the border alone Syrian kids live in camps"

What the heck could possibly be your point? No one said that covid is the worst, most dangerous thing that children have ever been asked to do, in the history of the world. However, there is evidence (not just from Foxnews) that we are screwing kids with our ignorance and knee jerk reactions. Are you going to say you don't think these things are having a meniangfully negative impact on kids? All the studies are wrong, YOU know better?

Brown University released a study showing that cognitive scores for young kids are meaningfully down. CT Childrens Medical Center is seeing a huge increase in parents looking for emergency behavioral care for kids. Kids suicides are up, self mutilation is way up. But you're saying all of that is just Foxnews talking points? There's no truth to any of it?

Suicides way up, hospitalization for behavioral issues way up, self mutilation way up, cognitive development is meaningfully down.

They'll be writing papers for 100 years, about the damage we did to todays kids.

I know Jim its everyone else fault .. do the parents have any responsibility in their children's Lives

CHILDREN'S HEALTHApril 8, 2021
Even before COVID-19 pandemic, youth suicide already at record high
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people ages 10-24 and has been increasing every year since 2007

The rate of suicide for those ages 10 to 24 increased nearly 60% between 2007 and 2018,

but let's blame the mask and create our own set of facts

Covid just exposed and added another factor to a trend the most of the America public never knew existed

So, just so I understand this, parents should take responsibility in their children's lives, but they need to STFU at School Committee meetings? Gotcha

we're at a point, where if I said 2+2=4, he'd say "no it doesn't",

in his mind, no conservative has ever been right on anything. Never.

Also, that's a false equivalence.

5 minutes ago, you blamed guns for gun crime. You're blaming an inanimate object.

Then just now, you say it's stupid to blame the mask.

Do you understand that every single sentence you type, is an endorsement of liberalism. No exceptions, not once, not ever.

You can't go 5 seconds without flip flopping and contradicting your self.

Yes, kids need good parents. But if parents were perfect and all powerful, we wouldn't need schools or teachers. Kids are impacted by outside influences.

The doctors at Brown University have concluded covid reactions are hurting little kids.

But you know more than they do. I'm not sure what experience you have that gives you more valid opinions than theirs, you never seem to share that. But you know they are wrong.

They're not even making a political argument, as Trump was president when we were all masked and schools were all shut down. But because you think everything I say is a conservative viewpoint, you instantly say it must be wrong.

Every single thing you don't happen to like, must be wrong.

WDMSO, if democrats only care about fixing things and they don't care about future votes, please explain why Biden said 2 years ago that he'd put a black woman on the supreme court?

What if there are better candidates than the best black woman? Isn't it an obviously political pandering exercise, to announce years ahead of time that only black women will be considered?

Have fun answering that.

didnít come close to answering the question.

what point is there to announcing years ahead of time, that only a narrow slice will even be considered?

what if the best candidate is asian? whatís the upside, other than politics?

ďon cue playing the affirmative action cardĒ.

what do you call it, when someone says a job can only be filled by a specific skin color and gender? how is that not a violation of anti discrimination law?

ones skin color and gender are random accidents. they donít say anything about you. they donít say anything about ones ability or character. sorry if thatís going too fast for you.

itís very smart politics in that party. but thatís all it is. gives biden a political win which he desperately needs, and itíll fire up his base.

pure politics. and heís playing it well.

This is absolutely hilarious because literally from 1790 to 1967 every single member of the Supreme Court was selected initially through an exclusionary criteria of race and gender. What is wrong with some of you?

must be great to have the guy making the nomination announce to the country beforehand that he's going to choose you out of all other potential candidates because the color of your skin benefits him the most politically....that's not racist or demeaning or anything

it's just Brandon doing what Obama said he'd do...he's really good at $#^&#^&#^&#^&#^&g everything up

this stuff is over your head wayneÖ

biden announced two years ago that itís be a black woman. When he said that, he had absolutely no way of knowing when the vacancy would be, or who the best candidates would be to fill it.

See if you can followÖyou pick the best candidate for a job that important, regardless of skin color and genitalia.

pure politics. and itís very shrewd. His presidency has been a flop, and he needs a win, and this gives him one. Breyer could have demanded. trillion dollars to resign, and heís have gotten it. The democrats need this win badly, and theyíll get it.

consider the motivation...

he announced it when his campaign was crashing and he desperately needed SC so Clyburn told him he's support him if he stated this...he announced it during a debate after Clyburn approached him during a break in that debate and reminded him that he needed to announce it...

"Rep. James Clyburn rushed backstage during a Democratic presidential primary debate to remind Joe Biden, then a candidate, to make public his private commitment that his first Supreme Court appointment would be a Black woman, according to a book published last year.

The episode has newfound relevance given that Biden is likely to name his first Supreme Court pick in a matter of days. Justice Stephen Breyer, the most senior member of the court's liberal wing, will soon announce his retirement, according to multiple reports.

"During the last commercial break, Clyburn hurried backstage. Remember to promise to appoint a Black woman to the Supreme Court, he urged the candidate. Biden, who was trying so hard to get his footing in the debate that he let slip that he'd just call [former President] Obama for a pep talk, was frightened of forgetting it again," CNN's Edward-Isaac Dovere writes in "Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats' Campaigns to Defeat Trump."

Biden then made his vow in response to the first question he received after the commercial break during the February 25, 2021, debate, the last one between the Democratic presidential hopefuls before the South Carolina primary and Super Tuesday. Clyburn, an influential South Carolina Democrat and now House majority whip, announced his game-changing endorsement the day after the debate."

what if the best candidate is asian? was that the case with Trump's appointments your concern was abortion talk about Myopic whatís the upside, other than politics?

ďon cue playing the affirmative action cardĒ.

what do you call it, POTUS prerogative when someone says a job can only be filled by a specific skin color and gender?Who ever said that Jim ? Now Whos making up stuff again
how is that not a violation of anti discrimination law? clearly you're not a lawyer

ones skin color and gender are random accidents. they donít say anything about you. they donít say anything about ones ability or character. sorry if thatís going too fast for you. whats to fast is your upset before a choice has been made because you were told to be upset let that sink in

Ahh yes Jim Trump made campaign promises and you hailed him as a hero Fulfilling his promises .

Ronald Reagan fulfilled his 1980 campaign promise to place a woman on the Court, which he did with the appointment of Sandra Day O'Connor.


Biden does the same thing yet you cry about it .

ones skin color and gender are random accidents.

But OMG out of 115 justices, 110 (95.7%) have been men. All Supreme Court justices were males until 1981, So using your logic Jim Regan Put O Connor on the bench 1 for politics 2 Affirmative action 3 it donít say anything about one's ability or character. or 4 what if the best candidate is asian?

One choice not on your list for Regan or Biden it's the right thing
and they checked all the boxes . Women, competence , experienced,

if your side is hurt that the court was all men 150 years ago, thatís the best evidence iíve ever seen, that liberals really need to grow a pair. thatís how the world was then. weíve fixed that.

i said here it was stupid for trump
to limit it to a woman, though Barrett is superbly qualified. itís too important. youíre not going to catch me in stupid hypocrisy, thatís your playbook, not mine. youíre the one incapable of holding his side to any standards.

Some idiot on cable news said that clarence thomas doesnít represent blacks on the court. FFS Itís not his job to represent blacks. itís his job to represent the Constitution. How can gender or color matter?

So predictable, only an idiot wouldnít accept nominations are likely to be turned into a political spin, sh*t every single Trump appointment helped him politically. What a shock to you he promised to make the court more representative of the country and more diverse.
