  1. I was telling a buddy of mine the same thing a few weeks ago, that we are headed into a bad direction, although I prefer your phrasing of it being a "weird place". I think that the NCAA has uncorked something that's better kept in the bottle. I wonder what college player will earn more than a head coach in a given year ?
  2. Here are your scientific studies homer: Ivermectin for COVID-19: real-time analysis of all 151 studies (c19ivermectin.com) Do yourself and the rest of the AUF a favor and bone up on the science instead of the political rhetoric.
  3. Every time you post I swear that your wife swapped your meds that day for M&Ms, the peanut kind.
  4. Ivermectin cured my nephew >>>>>>> all controlled studies, every day. As I said, his PHYSICIAN prescribed the medication, not a veterinarian. If a person is taking veterinary ivermectin for personal use, then he is a fool The prescriptions are vastly different, but a Bubba's gotta do, what a Bubba's gotta do. Since you mention learning about the scientific method from jr high, then you would know that "the study" you mention is questionable and it certainly isn't "the largest trial to date", not by a long shot. You should read more. If you are going to make a definitive statement that ivermectin "just doesn't help", then you shouldn't quote a study that uses faulty tools. The "rapid test", as used in Dr. Mills study, has issues. If a gold standard is desired, then the pcr test should have been used, which is 95%+ accurate. When used under the best conditions possible, a rapid test has at best an accuracy of only 75%+/-. That's a BIG hurdle to start. Then, the results depend on the brand of rapid test, which can drop accuracy way below 50%. Then, add to the equation that if the test is used before 7 days of infection, then the result is not reliable. Accurate results with a rapid test require at least a week of maturation of the infection. The wsj, nor Dr. Mills, make this info known. For all we know, those who tested positive for coronavirus, only had the common cold variety. In case you glazed over the above box of info, the results cited are from 81 studies, performed by 782 scientists, using 128,840 patients (not the tiny number Dr. Mills cites), from over 27 countries. This is an EXCELLENT spread of data. If ivermectin is taken as a prophylaxsis, then it has an 83% efficacy. Taken in the early stages of infection, then a 63% efficacy. Taken during late treatment, then ivermectin has a 42% success rate. The studies also determine fatality %, gives info about different stages of care and last, viral clearance. Here are the 81 studies. Knock yourself out. You have homework to do. https://c19ivermectin.com/ Oh, it's not me saying that ivermectin works against COVID-19, it's all 81 studies that do. Why is it primarily in America people claim that ivermectin doesn't work, when around the world scientists boast its benefits ? Money ? Ignorance ? Politics ? All 3 I believe, with the most important being the cost of the medication. Ivermectin is about 4 cents per pill, which makes it available even to the poorest. In America, the cost will be the $10,000 pill, which is not so available to the world. The more I read on this subject, the more I find that it's the scientists who need investigating, not ivermectin. Hang on to that bone, Mr. Gateway of Truth. I bet that you think it has some flavor left in it.
  5. Oooops ! I wonder if my nephew's physician has a money-back guarantee for having prescribed ivermectin ? My nephew, who is type-1 diabetic and has ankylosing spondylitis, both autoimmune disorders which put him in a high-risk category, was diagnosed with the delta variant, the most pernicious, was miserable and having to consider hospitalization. Within 48 hours after beginning his regimen, the symptoms were reduced SIGNIFICANTLY. Within 10 days he was symptom free. Keep on being the purveyor of that truth you're peddling there TT. You're like a dog with a bone about it. lol Oh, wait a moment. You don't accept anecdotal information, do you ? lol Remember everyone, TT says that ivermection "just doesn't help", so don't use it. You might get well.
  6. How did you come by this "fundraising" document Texas ?
  7. Glad to see that you have posted ICHY. Awwww, this must be sarcasm, or is it ? This wonderful American economy that you portray is because we are on a sugar high from the $7 trillion increase in national debt in just 2 years.....TWO YEARS. That much money released into the economy cannot help but give the appearance of making the economy "great again" because people and businesses have been able to literally dump it into the economy and make businesses flush with cash...for the interim. I'm sure you would be willing to give your children a similar credit card and then watch them spend you into oblivion, then gleefully tell you how much they helped everyone. This is the dilemma which Congress and the Presidents have placed us. We, the citizens of America, are bestowed with the dubious honor of paying for these horrible policies. Unemployment is seemingly low only because of the catastrophic drop in the labor participation rate. As of 2/20, the number was 63.4% which then dropped to a low of 60.2% in 4/20, which is a 5% drop in the total labor force of 2/20. America has not experienced such a drop since the Great Depression. The labor market was destroyed by the combination of covid and the overabundance of cash doled out by Congress. As of 2/22, the participation rate was 62.3%, which means that America remains significantly below the rate prior to covid. The 5.7% rate which you quote is not because of growth, it is because of replacement. The 5.7% figure you quote is primarily a rebound, not creation. The number of employment increase needs to be much, much higher than that to dig our economy out of the hole. America lost over 5 million jobs during covid and we are far from restoring those before even considering the idea of "growth". Many basic products have increased in price from 10-50%, petroleum is far worse. Oil, since election week 2020, has climbed from $37/bbl to $130/bbl, which is a 450% increase. Wholesale gasoline was $1.05 as of election day 2020 and was over $3.90 yesterday, a 470% increase. My favorite bacon has increased 50% since 1//22. Pick your grocery item......it has increased dramatically in price. Pick your items from Amazon.....the prices have increased, significantly. The costs of petroleum products alone will filter into the bottom line of ALL manufacturers and they will have to pass these costs to the public. Those in the lower economic strata are and will be suffering the most for a long time to come. Without cheap fuel, all suffer. America is headed for very troubled waters. To reiterate, yes, this economy SUCKS !!! It will only grow worse under a Democrat administration. https://www.bls.gov/charts/employment-situation/civilian-labor-force-participation-rate.htm
  8. And Pelosi is also leading the charge to ban Russian oil. The idea of doing this without previously replacing that oil shows that many of these "leaders" are isolated from understanding the economic burden that this will place on the American public. Oil is climbing back to yesterday's high and will surpass it. $147 is the next target. After that price, history will be made.....probably soon.
  9. I think all of that info by flywareagle.com is stating was previously posted on AUFamily. Better to read AUF.
  10. You need to seriously back off with the incendiary language . AG was at best an okay hire. Jay Jacobs, a "good ol' boy" I guess, secured BP's hiring when Pearl was a hot potato and no one wanted anything to do with him. BP was not going anywhere unless he wanted to be starting over and that wasn't going to happen at his age, AT ALL. I don't follow volleyball but that program is batting .361 after 2 seasons. Is that a good record ? If his name were Harsin, then he'd be gone. Your use of the word "mediocre" applies.
  11. Yeah, I was never impressed with AG's hiring. Add Leath's hiring and dismissal and Harsin, IF for cause, then the BOT have made some serious errors and they will need to be examined..
  12. AG staying or departing will be your answer. Harsin was AG's hire. If for cause, he stays, if not, he leaves. Who then will make the next hiring decision, because the trust in AG's judgment will be compromised if for cause ?
  13. EXACTLY. AU is a premier program.
