Looks like she lied about this too: 65 seconds on google and I found several examples of schools closing due to clusters of cancer in their students.

Is someone going to tell her cancer is neither contagious nor airborne?

pretty sure cancer clusters have closed schools.

Not a single school has closed because of drunk driving.

Does that mean we should stop trying to end drunk driving?

The problem with republicans is they're too stupid to see how stupid they are, or to even comprehend all the problems that can result from having stupid people in charge.

Sabotaging the school system for decades and turning americans into morons was the best long term strategy republicans ever devised.

The next time a school closes because of a school shooting, I'm going to ask why, we don't close schools for cancer.

I think that number needs to be revised upward unfortunately. I am going with a solid 35% these days.

I saw a meme where Margie Traitor Greene says, "I lost my virginity at a family reunion." And I believe it. Gawd, the GQP is a stupid party, it used to be that you could point at Gohmert and laugh at the stupidest person in Congress, but MTG, Boobert, Gosar, Wheels, McCarthy all make Gohmert look like a scholar.

I heard Margie on TV complaining about the mean things the Democrats call her and her fellow class clowns, "they call us white supremacists, racists, and insurrectionists," and I think that's all truth in advertising, prove them wrong, unlike the racist name these literal pieces of trash use to slander Representative Omar as part of the "Jihad Squad." Hey MAGAts, did you know that Boobert has more arrests on her record than everyone on the Squad combined? And check out her hubby's criminal history as more proof that all the Qanon talk about killing child molesters is nothing more than projection.

Haha, you can tell she went through life as a Liberal at some point with that kind of logic, and other logic she has applied to other topics. I bet I'm very close in assuming that she was a Liberal in her youth and then got a sniff of riches and realized being a Liberal she can't trample on people to get richer, so she switched sides.

But this does bring up a great game...name the most obscure, unrelated sickness that would never close a school. I'm going with dysentery. Not a single school has closed because of dysentery. Maybe some wagons got left behind with dead people from dysentery but no schools that I know of ever got closed...

#20 That's some heavy-grade cognitive dissonance you've got going there. Someone in your party is a moron, therefore they're actually somehow a liberal.

Seek help. Seriously.

Huh.
Conservatives trample on people to get richer, but liberals don't.

Why do you blame the headline and not the headliner?

The headline, for the record, is quite accurate.

#24. I misspoke. The headline is fine. The message is incredibly stupid as cancer isn't contagious. What an incredibly stupid comparison - cancer to covid

What's most disturbing is, she's guaranteed to win reelection in her district.

She represents her voters and they see her as someone who represents them.

This is what I find to be the most troubling.

She's stupid as hell.

What she should have said is that schools never closed down because of the seasonal flu, which is contagious, and is far more deadly to humans under age 18 than COVID.

I apologize. I wasn't clear enough.

The seasonal flu is far more deadly to people under age 18. For decades.

Yet schools never closed because of the seasonal flu.

"Yet schools never closed because of the seasonal flu."

Schools are well known to spread disease, so it's really for the benefit of everyone else who comes into contact with students that the schools are closed.

That's not really much better.

You're just doing it with more words.

During the Civil Rights Era, some schools closed because blacks were going to start showing up there. virginiahistory.org

So I guess having blacks show up at your school is worse than cancer.

That's probably true.

Maybe the US should just prohibit school.

We've certainly let enough of them go to pot that we might be better off wiping the slate and starting over.

But then, that's what Charter Schools are for. Doesn't seem like it's helping all that much...

Bomber, you are still getting your 'facts' from unreliable (Fox News) sources...

the last DECADE has seen 334k people die in America from the seasonal flu...the last
DECADE... In a little over one year 780k plus deaths from Covid in America (and still rising),
a likely 810k deaths in Russia due to Covid, India over 470k deaths, Brazil over 600k deaths,
and world wide, almost 5.3 million deaths.

We are lucky Covid only seems to kill about 2-3% of the people that get it, but it is
definitely stronger than the seasonal flu... MERS (or Middle East Respiratory Syndrome)
and a close relative of Covid, killed over 32% of the people that contracted it.
If something like that came to America, there would be body bags lined up around the street!

so maybe, just maybe, you know, wear a mask...

With zero mitigation measures in place, maybe. So you're comparing full unmasked in-person schooling flu deaths with masked, separated or at-home Covid deaths to make the "point" that Covid is less of a threat.

It's like saying you got wetter in a drizzle because you were standing outside, than a downpour where you were inside, therefore downpours aren't wet.

#30 and 32 This type of misinformation shouldn't be allowed on any form of social media. I flagged them offensive.

It's patently false and dangerous. Not, to mention the fact that you are still spreading those lies to promote more death is frankly sick.

As i suspected, when you compare apples to apples (pediatric flu deaths during 2020-21 with pediatric Covid deaths during that same period), it turns out Covid is much more deadly than the flu.

Pediatric Covid deaths November 2020 - May 2021: 211
www.cdc.gov

Pediatric flu deaths November 2020 - May 2021: 1
www.cdc.gov

It would appear that Covid-19 is 211 times deadlier for children than the flu. Will Madbomber admit he is a moron? Of course not.

How about poisoning us with lead in the water which is known to lower IQ:
www.theguardian.com
"A study published in JAMA Pediatrics this fall suggested that more than half of all US children have detectable levels of lead in their blood " and that elevated blood lead levels were closely associated with race, poverty and living in older housing. Black children are particularly at risk."

Now, what's this got to do with Republicans?
"While President Biden has made environmental justice a pillar of his administration, the final version of the infrastructure bill contains $15bn for removal of lead water pipes " much less than the $45bn originally proposed."

Wow. Another stupid lie from her. Not really a surprise.

Cancer closes schools all the time. Cancer closed my junior high school for a while. We had to go to the elementary school next door while they took out the asbestos.
