Yep; attacking her for being middle-aged as well.  All the articles are about the judge, not the science.  Love it.

It is pretty bad. It's like people, you know you can still wear masks if you want...

I'm going to go out on a limb and venture a guess that this judge is a Trump appointee.

Correct, and of course that is all the media is focused on, the science and reality be damned.

Graph by Ian Miller




If you add up all the numbers on those two lines, you find that the mask mandates made zero difference. The cumulative rate of infection over the course of the pandemic was about 24 percent in the mandate states as well as in the non-mandate states. Their cumulative rates of Covid mortality were virtually identical, too (in fact, there were slightly more deaths per capita in the states with mask mandates).

If this hasn’t persuaded you to take off your mask, you can find lots more reasons in a book by Ian Miller, the data analyst who created the graph for City Journal. Miller, who has tracked pandemic trends for the Brownstone Institute, has assembled the damning evidence in Unmasked: The Global Failure of COVID Mask Mandates. The book documents how mask mandates were implemented without scientific justification, how they failed around the world, and how public officials and journalists have kept making fools of themselves by pretending otherwise.


And there you have it.

Lol. Biden was gifted the judge ending masks on transportation. Appealing and re-implementing is an obvious L.

This is all it takes.

Who cares?  They can wear masks for the rest of time.  If that’s what they want and want to pay out the ass to live in a miserable place like that, they can go for it.

The taxpayers fund the NIH and the salaries, but the scientists get the royalties, not the taxpayers ??  Tens of millions of dollars.


What a (corrupt) scheme.

Anytime bureaucrats and politicians enrich themselves because of their post, it is disgraceful.  If Fauci was worth a fuck as a doctor, he’d be in private practice instead of sucking from the test.

That's an odd take lol

That's like sayin if Supreme Court Justices were any good they'd own their own law firm instead of being Justices sucking from the teat.

Here’s the difference as I see it:


The Supreme Court is an entire branch charged with interpreting the law.  Their decisions are the precedent upon which our legal system operates.  A legal scholar could really find no place to participate in practicing the law as impactful as the court.  


Fauci is in a role which, prior to Covid, most were not aware of.  Despite what others may say about him, he’s not on the front line of creating medical advances or changing the trajectory of medicine.

I suppose? One would argue it'd be tough to achieve Director status and maintain it for decades without being proficient. Seems a lot less likely to me.
