re: Coleman Hughes essay on Thomas Sowell - Big Scrub TX
[quote]After becoming a fan due to his columns, I bought one of his more ambitious readings - Knowledge and Decisions. I took it slow because I didn’t want to miss or undervalue anything in it.

Coleman Hughes essay on Thomas Sowell - Big Scrub TX
[quote]Measured by his contributions to economics, political theory, and intellectual history, Thomas Sowell ranks among the towering intellects of our time.

re: Fauchi throwing US under the bus - Big Scrub TX
[quote] Considering even the CDC web site has 43% of the deaths are by covid ONLY. The rest are WITH covid. So, if there is a 50-50 chance that the covid tests are accurate (false positive), That 43% death rate by covid ONLY, could be half. [/quote]The problem with covid isn't deaths, IMO - it's...

re: The cure is worse than the disease - Big Scrub TX

re: Fauchi throwing US under the bus - Big Scrub TX
[quote] Infections. He framed it that way and then let Gupta restate it in a way that much more condemning of the US response. No pushback at all to defend the US response or mention deaths.
