Well I'm wearing out staying isolated as much as possible , as a three times a week church goer and haven't been since this all started. Go get supplies once an month. My wife has to go to the Drs often with her ankle and no way way can I believe hospitals are a safe place. In the mean time my best buddy dies from it that only lived a mile from me. So at least getting the vaccine I have a hope and if in the trials its not killing anyone then I figure at least no harm. Got any better ideas I'm open to them except that when the election is over this will all magically disappear?

God's words in the Bible speak a fair amount on worry, trust, death, about who is control and who will provide and take care of you. That's were my faith and trust comes from. Not trying to turn this into a religious thread and I know some of you guys aren't believers so no need to make me aware of that. Just one Christian talking to another here.

Not discounting your motive in any way here Yes sir, but I'm not a fatalistic student. I believe if God provides me a way out I intend to take it, if a vaccine is it then so be it. I can always jump off the cliff later? Not going to happen!

Here is a link for all you fake news people and the ones that think that false positives don't happen

https://www.bigcountryhomepage.com/...ovid-19-cases-all-ruled-false-positives/

The same thing happened in at least two other counties nursing homes in Texas with one of them originally reporting 38 residents positive which in fact turned out to be all negative.

Not all of us out in rural Texas have the health facilities you Northern people have.

Our county has no testing facilities so the National Guard comes around about twice a month. You have to preregister with them a week or so before the scheduled test date and they only do a set number of tests.

I preregistered with them back in June and the day of the tests I had an emergency and was out of the county. So I did not get tested.
But 5 days after the scheduled date, I get a call from the County Judge informing me I had tested positive and would have to quarantine for two weeks.

So go ahead and believe what you want to but if it happens to you, what will you think then ?

As for me, I will not believe a single word anybody with any government says. If I get it and die, that is what God intended.

We have ongoing testing here in the parking lot of our local clinic. You don't fill out your paperwork until it is handed to you by the medical professional. That person then, does the nasal swab and finally signs the paperwork.

At no point does your paperwork leave your hands before the swab goes up your nose.

I suspect that is the case nationwide. Still, there is no shortage of people trying to make things more difficult and contribute to a mistrust of the medical community.

I could believe this if it was being handled by the DMV

This. It's an urban legend/myth/tall tale. So and so goes in to get tested, leaves before getting tested because they don't feel like waiting, and then get told they tested positive a few days later.

Interesting this urban legend happened to one of trapperman's own.

Dirt, since you’re enjoying indulging yourself in medical billing. Go find out what each one of these ICD-10 codes tacked on a hospital bill runs:

Is it even possible? Medical billing is ludicrous. The acronym is FUBAR.

So we have all heard numerous reports of false positives. Has anyone from the CDC looked into the percentage of false positive results in the nationwide testing protocol? Or false negatives as well? It seems like this would be important information to know when trying to manage a pandemic. Or does knowing not fit well with the narrative?

“As for me, I will not believe a single word anybody with any government says. If I get it and die, that is what God intended.”

Same thing my parents said when they boarded a plane in Georgia in early July and flew to Washington for a month long vacation. They visited Oregon, Idaho, and Glacier National Park in Montana. They are back home now and Dad cut his grass yesterday in 95+ degree temps before I could get over there today. Dad will be 84 in Jan and Mom will be 75 in October. The only issue they had on vacation was when Dad slipped and fell, skinning up his leg, while hiking up a mountain with my brother, lol.

So here is an interview with Dr. Kenny Bramwell, an ER physician at St. Luke on 7/13. He basically says we don't know what we don't know. There is no standard and no standard double check. This is possibly one of the biggest screw ups in US history.
