Re: Vaccination Cards

My comment had nothing to do with me or any other physicians finding fault with a person who refused treatment because they followed a non-medical decision tree. I was only trying to enlighten the philosophical difficulty physicians have when encountering such decision trees. We are not finding fau...

Re: Vaccination Cards

This is a general and ever-increasing problem in our society: what happens when everything you do impacts others? When nothing's private or personal? When your liability is limitless and your obligations boundless? Yes, it is ever-increasing. And that is disturbing. The mindset of the left seems to...

Re: Vaccination Cards

This is true, and we are very cognizant of the practice of obtaining informed consent before proceeding. But physicians in general have a philosophical problem with un-informed non-consent. When we seek informed consent, we provide the medical reasons for proceeding, the available medical alternati...

Re: Vaccination Cards

I’d beg to differ that the civil liberties we have now are much more than they were in the 50’s. The biggest difference for improvement of civil liberties is the laws passed to ensure that the rules were enforced equally for all of any race, religion, sex, or sexual preference. The actual liberties...

Re: Vaccination Cards

In the past, the times those actions were used were with diseases that were extreme and the illnesses were difficult to treat or mitigate. Covid has NOT turned out to be something that is orders of magnitude worse than the normal flu or other viruses. Yes, it is impactful and new, but it is not wort...

Re: Vaccination Cards

We've done nothing in the past like what you are describing. Covid is a disease similar to many others and is not orders of magnitude more deadly or more contagious. If we would not have this unprecedented push to test all sorts of people who have no symptoms the stats wouldn't be there to think Cov...

Re: Vaccination Cards

As to your earlier argument about my fist and your nose, I'm not swinging anything. I'm just going about my normal life, minding my own business. Your scenario is more akin to someone going into a boxing gym, inserting their face in between a training fighter's fist and the heavy bag, then filing a...

Re: Vaccination Cards

My major point is that everyone wants to exempt themselves from a vaccine and cites personal responsibility as to their reasoning. The problem as far as that goes is the major reason for vaccination is both protection for yourself and developing here immunity so as to protect the relative few who e...

Re: Vaccination Cards

Most of my colleagues state that masks might help, and they don’t hurt. That’s the basis of the recommendation- weak to no proof, but verifiably no harm. Not being able to wear a mask (as opposed to don’t want to) would mean you are on permanent bipap or a vent. It’s mostly psychological. My 82 yea...

Re: Vaccination Cards

The vaccine card doesn't look much different than the ones we had as kids in the 60s. The pediatrician filled them out and you needed to present them to enroll in school. Yes, in my youth (70's and 80's) proof of measles vaccination was required for things like enrolling in school. So based on that...

Re: Vaccination Cards

I have nothing against the vaccine itself. I doubt whether it will be any more effective than the annual flu shot though. But I am leery of the whole program and dismayed at what is coming along with it. The future restrictions on what a person can and cannot due based on their vaccination status an...

Re: Gunbroker sales tax

As noted above, it doesn't make sense that GB could collect taxes when it isn't the seller. It could mandate that sellers using the platform collect the tax themselves as a condition of use. Or it could switch to a model where GB is the proxy seller (like eBay and Amazon for 3rd party sellers) that ...

Re: Whatever happened to Andrew Rothman?

I believe he's fine. Just seems to have stepped away from being active (or fronting) gun rights in MN.

Re: Has anyone seen an M1A rifle in a store lately?

M1A were very hard to fine a decade ago when guns & ammo were scarce the last time. Kinda surprising as expensive as they are that they sell out so fast, but they're nice guns.
