So you neither know the meaning of "rhetorical" nor of "argumentative".

a. as you responded to my post that specifically gave you leave not to do so.

b. You responded unecessarily to my rhetorical post and also to oaksoft's, solely so that YOU could continue to be argumentative, but you'll deny that THAT is the reason you responded.  (Which would ironically confirm your argumentative penchant... )

c. AND I would bet the house that you'll respond to this post due to that same argumentative impulse.

d. To repeat - if you DO respond to this - you'll be confirming your argumentative weakness.

e.  If you don't respond, you'll be a better, more balanced person than you've demonstrated, thus far...

f.  At heart, I sense you can be a good guy.  :)

This seemed to start of like a new attempt to stop me responding but it quickly descended into reverse psychology which as I have said many times, wont work... There is one sure fire way to achieve the goal of not getting me to respond.

Please accept my scorn...

C - correct, it isn’t a revelation based on my time on here, it never is when people post similar. 

D - incorrect, an attempt at reverse psychology which I told you would fail as it will anytime you attempt it. 

There’s is a sure fire way to get me to stop responding ‘I would bet my house’ that you won’t try it... See what I did there? :whistle

Aye, you surrendered to a frailty, your weakness - again.

One of the ironies of lockdown is that covid is mostly spread in people’s homes and yet I’ve spent more time in other folk’s homes in the past year than ever before as a result of lockdown.

What can I say, I’m a very popular guy.

Looking forward to my usual Sat night gathering at the in laws tomorrow night 🍺🍺🍺

Lockdown has been personally brilliant for me. Cheers 😃👍

Ian Scanlon’s left peg was one of the best in the business.

Alex Miller was known as a defensive manager yet one of the first things he did was switch Scanlon to the right wing so he could inside and he had his best goalscoring run

Who remembers his 30 yarder against Celtic in the 4-2 game

McDougall, McAvennie & Scanlon. What a forward line.

I can’t congratulate Sevco on winning their first major tophy 

Scum

but well done on their supporters celebrations today

as much as anything else, it’s a working class reaction against the “I’m alright Jack” middle class left restrictions supported by the the selfish middle class likes of @Bud the Baker and @bazil85

I'm working class, and have been working throughout the pandemic, and yeah by and large I do support the restrictions which have saved lives.

Unlike you Cap'n I'm not a bitter fantasist quoting irrelevant statistics that I don't understand... :1eye

Oh and you could have congratulate Sevco on winning their first major "tophy" if you wanted...:1eye:1eye

You should've stuck to posting about long ball theory Cap'n, you only looked eccentric then - not a mad cunt...:1eye:1eye:1eye

Covid doesn’t discriminate against people regarding their social & political stance. 
 

You have made up an agenda regarding who supports restrictions while often sharing stats & data that show why everyone should support restrictions...

Ultimately the support for suppressing this terrible virus is linked to a persons common sense not political/ social status.

Interesting, from a year ago............................

I'm a doctor and an Infectious Diseases Specialist. I've been at this for more than 20 years seeing sick patients on a daily basis. I have worked in inner city hospitals and in the poorest slums of Africa. HIV-AIDS, Hepatitis,TB, SARS, Measles, Shingles, Whooping cough, Diphtheria...there is little I haven't been exposed to in my profession. And with notable exception of SARS, very little has left me feeling vulnerable, overwhelmed or downright scared.
I am not scared of Covid-19. I am concerned about the implications of a novel infectious agent that has spread the world over and continues to find new footholds in different soil. I am rightly concerned for the welfare of those who are elderly, in frail health or disenfranchised who stand to suffer mostly, and disproportionately, at the hands of this new scourge. But I am not scared of Covid-19.
What I am scared about is the loss of reason and wave of fear that has induced the masses of society into a spellbinding spiral of panic, stockpiling obscene quantities of anything that could fill a bomb shelter adequately in a post-apocalyptic world. I am scared of the N95 masks that are stolen from hospitals and urgent care clinics where they are actually needed for front line healthcare providers and instead are being donned in airports, malls, and coffee lounges, perpetuating even more fear and suspicion of others. I am scared that our hospitals will be overwhelmed with anyone who thinks they " probably don't have it but may as well get checked out no matter what because you just never know..." and those with heart failure, emphysema, pneumonia and strokes will pay the price for overfilled ER waiting rooms with only so many doctors and nurses to assess.
I am scared that travel restrictions will become so far reaching that weddings will be canceled, graduations missed and family reunions will not materialize. And well, even that big party called the Olympic Games...that could be kyboshed too. Can you even
imagine?
I'm scared those same epidemic fears will limit trade, harm partnerships in multiple sectors, business and otherwise and ultimately culminate in a global recession.
But mostly, I'm scared about what message we are telling our kids when faced with a threat. Instead of reason, rationality, openmindedness and altruism, we are telling them to panic, be fearful, suspicious, reactionary and self-interested.
Covid-19 is nowhere near over. It will be coming to a city, a hospital, a friend, even a family member near you at some point. Expect it. Stop waiting to be surprised further. The fact is the virus itself will not likely do much harm when it arrives. But our own behaviors and "fight for yourself above all else" attitude could prove disastrous.
I implore you all. Temper fear with reason, panic with patience and uncertainty with education. We have an opportunity to learn a great deal about health hygiene and limiting the spread of innumerable transmissible diseases in our society. Let's meet this challenge together in the best spirit of compassion for others, patience, and above all, an unfailing effort to seek truth, facts and knowledge as opposed to conjecture, speculation and catastrophizing.
Facts not fear. Clean hands. Open hearts.
Our children will thank us for it.

Sadly all of his "scared" moments seemed to be based on the above "fact", which have him dismissing the effects of the disease and suggesting that we were over reacting.

It would be interesting to see his views just now, give that Covid isn't "just flu".
