In fact, I could use the exact same argument the writer uses against "automobile" deaths with YOUR analogy of covid-19 deaths to "war deaths"
    What analogy did I make? I was just comparing the total (and increasing) Coronavirus deaths to other events which killed large numbers of Americans. Obviously a virus is nothing like a war.

    Regardless, you said this


    worldwide 1.25 Million automobile related deaths per year, every year. We need to ban cars. And roads.


    One can infer only that you're comparing the extreme measures taken to "flatten the curve" to what those measures might look like when applied to car fatalities (and which was the topic of the thread). That's the analogy addressed by the article. Of course you're too magnanimous to quote the relevant passage and embarrass me, which is appreciated.

    We have spent what, 6 pages on this rabbit trail now? I am tired of your derail because you made a stupid comparison and then can't understand the replies to it. Move on dweeb. I gave you a link to the beginning of the rabbit trail about a page ago. You have a mouse, use it. At this point I think you are just doing this to troll, nobody can be that ignorant.

    I'm still curious about how "that" has come into common use when "who" would fit better..... "this is the man that drove the car" / "this is the man who drove the car".

    So I have a question. If you all think this woman is a hero for defying a law to feed her family, do you extend the same grace to people who break immigration laws to make a better life for their families?

    There's a difference between defying (probably) unconstitutional laws and defying legal ones.
