Voter turnout is dismal.

-you did not add any commentary about considering the claims speculative and not assuming they were true
-you did not follow up (hence why you didn't read anything until you read my post)

Is there some reason in there I should think you were more interested in the truth of the matter than the headline that was favorable to your side? You do not add value by sharing speculative sensationalized crap with no commentary (it does conveniently let you retreat to pretending like you were sharing but had no opinion on it like we don't know why you shared it). Even now you just imply you're going to look into it more, and you're not convinced, yada yada. It's a day later and no follow up yet again. Almost like you don't really care to confirm whether it was true, you just wanted to put a claim out there.

(And I did not say he was directly involved with Heather Heyer's death and I have no reason to think he was. Am I to take the implication that you brought up Heyer's death unprompted that if he was just part of that screaming racist mob chanting anti-Semitic slogans that it wouldn't be so bad that the Florida GOP was paying this guy money then?)

Do you have any interest in looking more into which side actually is more violent? What is the point of sharing this story?
Hey Miss Shelby, just wondering if you would display the same interest in this story as you do in cases that appear to benefit your team (but don't seem to have actually have fit the narrative the GOP was selling):


This one seems quite a bit likelier to actually have been a case of political violence, that resulted in a murder, and was in the other direction, with the wife of the victim saying the shooter had repeatedly accosted them over suspected Democratic Party membership/voting. I'm sure you'd have posted this with no comment if you had seen it, though, right? You just feel obliged to share interesting stories with no agenda.

Of course, if you're actually interested in this topic more generally, there are sources out there about political violence and political terrorism and which side commits more of it. But I'm guessing you wouldn't be too interested in it because the numbers don't make your side look good.

(To save you time: "I'll look into it more." and "Those government statistics are lies. I listen to Ann Coulter who uses real facts unlike you brainwashed folks.")

Interesting sounding medical tech that may have some uses, but...

Quote:
The anti-fentanyl antibodies were specific to fentanyl and a fentanyl derivative and did not cross-react with other opioids, such as morphine.
OK, so it just removes one product an opioid user might take, leaving the rest on the table. Will not prevent addiction.

At this point, the vaccine does have limitations — it wouldn’t stop an accidental overdose.
Oh, it doesn't prevent people dying either.
