    So Jones is supposed to assume the QAnon claims are true, but Sandy Hook was a hoax?

    Precisely, because if the sample under consideration was too small one couldn't infer the conclusion the OP did.

    I don't think so. If the elderly were the cause of the effect the more accurate claim would have been "Elderly vaccinated people are 9 times more likely to be hospitalized than the unvaccinated."

    Kirsch's claim that "the only way you can get those numbers is if vaccinated people are 9 times more likely to be hospitalized than unvaccinated. It is mathematically impossible to get to those numbers any other way. Period. Full stop." is absolute bullshit. In fact, Kirsch retreats from this claim later on in his article. We aren't told the time period during which 90% of hospitalized patients consisted of vaccinated people, nor are we given the details of the reasons for hospital admission (at least Kirsch is honest enough to admit that not all admissions were COVID-related). It's not hard to imagine scenarios in which the data were from a short time period during which most admissions were due to causes having nothing to do with whether someone received the vaccine. Another explanation is found in Kirsch's own article: "However, it’s important we don’t leap to quick conclusions. A good part of this effect could be due to a greater portion of vaccinated people among the elderly." So he goes from the dogmatic claim that "the only way you can get those numbers is if vaccinated people are 9 times more likely to be hospitalized than unvaccinated" to a more plausible explanation. As I've said before, the relevant question isn't whether vaccinated people test positive for COVID (they do, because no vaccine is 100% effective) or whether vaccinated people get hospitalized for or die from COVID (same reason). The question is: does the vaccine reduce the chances of getting seriously ill with or dying from COVID? The important data would then be the relative percentages of COVID-related serious illness or death among the unvaccinated vs. the vaccinated. EDIT: The last sentence should read "The important data would then be the relative percentages of vaccinated and unvaccinated among those with COVID-related serious illness or death."

    One of my favorite Franklin quotes is from a letter he wrote to Ezra Stiles (then the president of Yale College), who had inquired abiout Franklin's reigious views. The letter was written on March 9, 1790, five weeks before his death. "As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think his system of morals and his religion, as he left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is like to see; but I apprehend it has received various corrupting changes, and I have, with most of the present Dissenters in England, some doubts as to his Divinity; though it is a question I do not dogmatize upon, having never studied it, and think it needless to busy myself with it now, when I expect soon an opportunity of knowing the truth with less trouble. I see no harm, however, in its being believed, if that belief has the good consequence, as probably it has, of making his doctrines more respected and more observed; especially as I do not perceive that the Supreme takes it amiss, by distinguishing the unbelievers in his government of the world with any peculiar marks of his displeasure."

    Mike Flynn says the U.S. needs one religion. Bet he wants to be its Imam. "If we are going to have one nation under God, which we must, we have to have one religion. One nation under God, and one religion under God.” https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/u-s-needs-one-religion-under-god-ex-trump-advisor-flynn-tells-far-right-rally-1.10383235 No, taking a bath in borax won't undo your COVID vaccination, not even if The Old Ranger* prepares the bath. "Medical experts are speaking out against Covid-19 vaccine “detoxes” that some inaccurately claim can remove the effects of vaccinations received under mandates and other public health rulings. In one TikTok video that has received hundreds of thousands of views, Carrie Madej, an osteopath based in Georgia, falsely claims a bath containing baking soda, epsom salts and the cleaning agent borax will “detox the vaxx” from anyone who has received a jab.

    You must've slept through the entire Watergate scandal. Any time there's abuse of power by government officials freedom is at risk.

We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."
