    I really think a lot of it is paranoia (for some odd reason) and the fact that many Americans donít give or know two shits about what goes on outside their home/State, let alone the rest of the World.

    Some Americans talk about ďfreedom ďas if the USA has a patent on it, and the rest of the World is living in tyranny because we donít have the US Constitution. As if Freedom is a concept only they ďgetĒ.

    And oddly enough, they always seem to be the same Americans who are worried to high Heaven that their freedom is going to be wrenched away by their own countryís Government like a baby from itís Motherís nip at every turn.

    Thatís not freedom. Thatís paranoia.

    On the flip side of that coin America bears the brunt of making sure the world is stable and keeping ALL our freedoms secure. Our freedom loving allies might wanna cut us some slack for our internal shortcomings.

    Default 2020 CoronaVirus Outbreak - That began in Wuhan, China and is spreading

    I was half joking with my response to Dave earlier, but honestly, thereís two reasons, and erosion in public trust is one of them.

    A few polls point that out. Even a poll of nurses and another of doctors said their trust in the CDC and FDA had plummeted.

    Concerns, and they arenít unfounded, about biases and politics affecting ďthe science,Ē abound. We had contradictory messaging about masks, vaccines, and how to avoid infection. It even turns out 6 feet is totally unscientific.

    Mayors, governors, had parties, weddings, dined indoors, didnít wear masks, and otherwise flouted their own mandates.

    There was a NY Times article titled, "Are Protests Dangerous? What Experts Say May Depend on Who's Protesting What.Ē it contains this quote by Catherine Troisi, an epidemiologist at the University of Texas Health Science Center: "I certainly condemned the anti-lockdown protests at the time, and I'm not condemning the protests now, and I struggle with that. I have a hard time articulating why that is OK."

    You combine that with a general lack of critical thinking and science literacy with a lot of people, and here we are.

    My limited understanding of why viruses mutate is due to errors in the replicating of the virus, kind of like a birth defect in humans, not a specific design of viruses.

    I know I am the 5th dentist that doesn't prefer Crest but man one can be pro-vaccine and anti CDC or have misgivinigs about the CDC, Fauci, etc. You talk about Europe and how they are getting vaxxed, etc and us dumb Americans are not. Well guess what? The European countries acceted Antibody cards. We don't. Why? Kids with masks? They don't use them because the science doesn't support it. Here, parents who state the same thing are being labled as terrorists by our government.

    Politics. That's the part that is so frustrating for people like me that simply do question our government, our CDC, In Fauci we Trust, etc. At least a bit sympathetic to poeple who simply just don't fall in live believinig everything that They all say. Its been politicized. We do not follow the sceince. Europe doesn't mask mandate kids in school. We do. Europe accept antibody cards. We don't. Peoople in this country on BOTH sides simply just believe what the are told, without using their freaking head. Both sides are guility AF.

    Then to top it off, we now have again divided us over another issue. Like we needed another one to despise our fellow humans

    Youíre hung up on the anti-bodies.

    I know youíre vaccinated but to be honest the only people Iíve seen even bring up the anti-bodies are people who donít want to get the vaccine.


    Itís just an excuse. The vaccine is safe.

    Canada doesn't accept antobody tests and has kids in masks. Can the Crest hating dentist explain the gap?

    Everyone has their line that is too much.

    For me, it's the walking around with a vaccination card for COVID, having to show it at any time as requested (while on site). Not doing it.
