I used to give blood regularly. About 20 yrs ago, they sent me a notice that my blood had tested positive for one of the Heps. I immediately went to the doctor to get checked out. No hep, it was a false positive. They said it happens fairly often. However, I can no longer give. They take it, but then throw it in the trash. No need to get stuck just so they can throw it away.

I signed up for the bone marrow donation registry through DKMS last summer, and was notified in December of 2019 that I was a match. Went through the secondary screening and everything was going smoothly until this coronavirus mess. I asked about whether or not I would be able to give plasma/blood while waiting to make the bone marrow donation and was told they prefer I didn't give any less than a month before the bone marrow procedure. But no word of when that might be. It would've been great timing while I was laid off for a month and a half, but nothing going on in my life is too important that I can't take a few days off to help save a life.

makes for very few people with safe blood once you get through the screening questions.

52 and no Tattoos (They're stupid) Check
Not gay Check
I don't sleep around at all. Check
I don't do drugs Check

The surgeon general also stated---the average age of those donating blood and plasma--was over 60.Imagine that,I You would think it would be those in the best shape that were donating. Its the old farts looking to help their neighbors--with their blood.Should make the younger generations stop and think.

You started this thread knowing it would cause this reaction. What was the point of letting people know that they need a mask? Everyone has heard that already. People don't always do as they are told. Oklahoma doesn't want to make mask mandatory, guess you hate that idea?

Matt,I posted this as I was watching president Trump and the surgeon general. Most on here believe that the mask thing is only a democrat thing.
Thought the words of the surgeon general and President might show that face masks are not just for those who are democrats.

I just went ahead and got a gas mask and filter cartridges, you know the works. I have read this book before and that is where this road ends up.

How are eye glasses protecting your eyes?

That's working about like the mask material is preventing the virus from passing thru.

Hope you "feel" protected...cause you ain't!


Thank God For Your Blessings!

Best I can count there are 16 "contributers to this thread.
I'm sure the blood centers will be happy to receive your call to donate.

BTW they won't let me donate anymore due to my lymphoma

This says it better then I can.

I was asked why I don’t take Covid and the mask situation seriously. I said that I do take the virus seriously. I believe there is a virus and that it is dangerous. But the people who are disseminating the information to us have a long, long track record of lying to and showing dismissive contempt for American citizens as a whole.

At one point, the disease was supposed to have a 5% death rate. The death rate has now been reduced to less than 1/3 of 1% worldwide. The truth is I’m not opposed to masks at all. Much like carrying a firearm, I don’t and won’t shame anyone for deciding to wear one or not. Sort of a “my body, my choice” situation I suppose.

However, when considering the trustworthiness of information coming from our politicians, I’ve been unable to reconcile the fact that 200,000 people protesting in the streets is met with little to no concern, but a bar, restaurant or hair salon with 10 people in it could be disastrous. The idea that a Trump rally of 18,000 people is a significant risk but a group of 20,000 students tearing down statues isn’t, leaves me perplexed.

Further, how could you possibly take anyone seriously who mandates that free citizens stay at home and wear masks in public but also calls for the acceptance of millions of immigrants entering our society illegally with no record of immunizations against more common and deadly diseases every day.

The truth is that our political “leaders,” just like with guns, drugs, our national debt or sex trafficking, have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about and no plan outside of what’s handed to them 6 seconds before they reach the podium.

So I choose to protect myself as I see fit. If anyone doesn’t like it, I’m ok with that. Just think of it as a “protest.” That seems to be ok with many people! Ok? Cool.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

Exactly^^^
For anyone doubting just watch Dr. Fauci at the recent hearings dodge verbally condemning the protest gatherings after he has been on record condemning dating and attending sporting events. He finally did say all groupings were risky but the legislator had to pull that out of him....WHY???
