    The same as all our media outlets, scientists, psychologists, biologists, pediatricians, etc. The monolithic consensus being formed by one after another, on a host of issues, seems...fishy.

    Wait, as a biological scientist, I'm part of a monolithic consensus being formed? I never got any of those memos. Please, do tell me what I am consensing on.

    Also, why are biologists listed separate from scientists? Also, why just pediatricians, why are other areas of medical specialty left out of the loop. It's not sounding that monolithic.

    You find professionals being swayed by evidence fishy?

    Please tell us about the manufactured scientific evidence of which you speak! I'd be interested in hearing about this!

    They say what they are being told to say. The others are being pushed out. The curated consensus forms a monolith.

    You should actually meet some professional scientists some time. You'll see how fractally wrong you are about scientists.

    Curated Consensus. That sounds impressive. Not real, but it sounds impressive!

    I agree. Let's not fault him too much. He is after all a Canadian --- one of those rare Canadians who is a wannabe Trump clone. He tried to run for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party in Canada. Bowed out when he realized that he couldn't win because he couldn't speak French.

    There's that "they" again. Let me repeat. I am a biological scientist. I am one of these people you insist on labeling "they"...in fact, I am two of them, since you put scientists and biologists separately.

    Have the decency to respond to me directly. Go on, have the guts to tell me that I am being told what to say.

    My initial quip was not directed to you in the first place. I owe you nothing.

    The President told you that 3 million Mexicans voted in the last election, which he still won by the greatest landslide in the history of the nation. Are you deaf or what? Get with the program, Comrade!!!

    I had to look him up. Why should I pay any attention to what he thinks about American politics?

    Why indeed.

    It seems to me that a lot of people think that if someone has the knack for making money they should be paid attention to outside that particular area of expertise.

    Very true.

    The first thing that worries me is so many people, liberals, are proclaiming that a 15 dollar minimum wage would be a good thing even though they know nothing about the situation.

    Funny, a preponderance of evidence generally is enough for juries to convict.

    or that many of the complaints about low pay came from the public being annoyed that the government is subsidizing low paying companies such as Amazon and Walmart.

    Expected Result
    Raising wages beyond eligibility for medicaid would cause either:

    1. the company to pay medical care which makes the low paid employees more expensive and will bring extensive automation

    2. or if the employee is not released he loses medicaid and has to pay a lot for something else or as in my case, goes without.

    Everytime I think I have grasped the true depravity and horror of the US healthcare system I find out it goes even lower.
