    What a *ridiculous* analogy!
    Not a ridiculous analogy at all since what Jesus was said is true, that those who cling to earthly wealth will find it exceedingly difficult to give it up for heavenly rewards.

    On their other hand, what Dementia Joe said is NOT true, that taking a well-known and time-tested medication with a doctor's supervision is nothing at all like injecting yourself with poison.

    What, *precisely*, is the difference between a prescription medication and a "poison." Be *very* specific.

    What a *ridiculous* analogy! What does heaven have to do with a needle!?

    (OMG DO. Now you're making an analogy between something you just said and something Jesus said!)

    Sheesh.
    Wow, you’re an idiot.

    Very little.

    A prescription medication is a controlled substance that is known to have beneficial medicinal qualities when taken as recommended by a medical professional. A poison (like Clorox) has no beneficial medicinal qualities and is not safe to take in ANY quantity.

    Another way to look at: a medical professional will never prescribe you take a poison like Clorox.

    Storing water for an emergency is simple, especially when the water is not contaminated. Here are some guidelines for storing water.

    Liquid Bleach Method

    Regular household liquid bleach contains a compound (5.25 percent sodium hypochlorite) that will disinfect water. Do not use bleaches that are scented, colorsafe, or have added cleaners.

    Use regular liquid bleach containing 5.25 percent hypochlorite. Add 16 drops (about ¼ teaspoon) per gallon of water.

    The treated water should be mixed thoroughly and allowed to stand for 30 minutes before use. The water should have a slight bleach odor. If it does not, repeat the dosage and let the water stand for an additional 15 minutes before use. Fill clean containers and store as described in Method A.


    So, we agree that Clorox *is* safe to take in small quantities (and even recommended when preserving water for a long time), and therefore, not a poison. Sounds like a reasonable analogy to me.

    We done here?
    And you think that's the same as injecting yourself with Clorox? You think a doctor would actually prescribe Clorox injections per Dementia Joe's analogy?

    You just agreed that Clorox is not a poison, but rather, a substance which can be harmful when consumed but which has beneficial properties under specific use cases. Just like Hydroxycloroquine. Biden's point was simply that taking H pre-emtively doesn't fit into those specific use cases.

    So I'm pretty satisfied with this discussion at this point. You can have the last word.

    A straight Clorox injection is NOT one of those use cases, and no doctor would ever prescribe such a thing.

    You would think that Mr ‘I’m the smartest’ would be well aware that the difference between poison and medicine, isn’t much.
