    She taught nursing at OSU but doesn't seem to understand concepts we learned in H.S. Biology.

    Not going to link to the idiocy ... it's on her Twitter

    It's quite absurd how all of these highly trained medical professionals suddenly lost all credibility the second they refused to match lockstep with a covid vaccine mandate.

    is this a joke? Most doctors have little, if any, credibility as a scientist. & she ain't a doctor.

    It's something like 0.19% where counted so far... so it's an extreme minority of highly trained med professionals. That's the problem with the internet (one of them anyway) - 1,000 kooks looks like a groundswell. Also, I'd wager a minimum of 5% of any profession consists of knuckleheads.

    She’s an airhead. I’m not at all surprised at any of the nonsense she tweets.

    Respectfully, her and Urban lost what little credibility they had as humans after they tried to conceal spousal abuse. They both garbage for that.....they have no credibility left.

    I just wish the University of Florida would tell that POS to slither away from campus and keep going. Thanks for the titles, the murder and drama over protecting a spousal abuser. Now, go away and take your spasms with you.

    You have a link showing 99.8% of medical
    professionals favor covid vaccine mandates?

    I'm just going from the numbers that were recently released from Maine that showed 66 out of 30 something thousand medical professionals opted not to take the vaccine. But who cares? Like I pointed out even if it's 5% it's not a significant number, you will find 5% of idiots in any job, lawyers, doctors, professors, garbage man, you name it

    What does choosing to take a vaccine have to do with mandates? I took the vaccine and and am steadfastly against mandates. Like a large portion of our society. Don't quote me and then move the goalposts. A lot on this board seem to combine the two issues. I assume they are too intelligent to not be able to differentiate between them but now I'm beginning to wonder.

    She believes that flu could have killed 600k people and that the numbers are being manipulated. Yes, she is an idiot

    It's quite absurd that highly trained medical professionals reject or get so very wrong what has been one of medical/public health science's greatest achievements. I think part of the problem is that such folk let political motivations obscure scientific reasoning.

    One can make reasonable arguments about concerns over vaccines, but so (too) often is the case that the claims these *non-locksteppers* make are not reasonable. And/or it shows that even among highly educated medical folk, there is still no shortage of quackjobs.

    I’m suddenly understanding why Urban just can’t quit coaching.

    not familiar with her, but a big difference between not marching in lockstep with a vax mandate and being a anti vaxxer

    That's almost the number of people that don't die from the virus. I do think a very high number of physicians (90% plus) have had the vaccine and ask their patients to get the vaccine. It's much much lower for nurses. I believe the shot keeps you off the ventilator if it comes to that, but it's not 100%. I do find it interesting how the adverse affects of the shot are suppressed in the media and deleted on social media. Vaers (unverified injuries and deaths) would have to make one a bit worried.

    My doctor many years ago assured me a pill for pain was okay, because some great meds throughout time had won nobel prizes. There is a medication out there that won a nobel prize in 2015, yet is being clowned by the media. The biggest state in the India & the world with 225 million people began handing out ivermectin after 3.5 million cases. They have almost none today. Google search Uttar Pradesh. If you are for a vax or not the vax, I think we can all agree vax mandates are bad.

    If you have any assistants named Steve, don’t hand over too much responsibility for the business to him.
