Shills for the Republicans, Tea Baggers, Wall Street, and everything bad in this country. I suggest that if you must read their posts, and if you disagree with them, that you not respond. It's impossible to have a reasoned discussion with them. By responding you keep their posts alive and perhaps help to shove other reasonable ones off the page.

I would disagree that it is impossible to have a reasoned discussion with us. Speaking for myself I am open to all possibilities and believ I have the ability to change my mind given the facts.

It is the hashing out of ideas which keeps a democracy alive.

If you try to have a reasonable discussion with someone, stop talking to them. But if I happen over to either of their posts I will leave a comment so that if someone reads the thread maybe I have helped by articulating a clear argument. That doesn't mean I have to have the last word. I am not familiar with HollyA; Calperson has a rather unique perspective according to my recollection (not like I could tell you what it is except to say it appears to be some kind of misguided attempt to discover the truth in forming a unique position) and I usually disagree, but I like the avatar so I'll say that there definitely have been a lot of characters around here who are shills engaged in pure sophistry and baiting but calperson is not one of them.

Coronavirus: Many Claim We Can't Afford Medicare-for-all, But, It Appears We Are About To Discover How Costly Our For-Profit Healthcare Is

Thom plus logo The coronavirus is now in the United States, and apparently the infection in California goes beyond just one person, because they can't figure out how that one person got it. Which means lots of people need to get tested, particularly if they have symptoms of a severe cold or flu which could indicate that they have the coronavirus.
