OK, Roger, thanks for the explanation.
No, I'm most definitely not that kind of guy. :)
But I can sort of imagine why you might have that question, just on the basis of our recent exchanges.

Generally speaking: I'm not "pro-authority" or "pro-government"; I'm not "anti-authority" or "anti-government". I think "authority" should regularly be examined and sometimes questioned, but with the same degree of fairness and sense that you or I would wish to be treated by "authority".
Life is always a negotiation (and a dance) between freedom and constraint. My "thing" in these corona-threads has been about whether statements and exchanges of opinions that, as a bottom line, concern science and society are actually based on science and on more or less demonstrable facts or instead on fantasy premises. Because that (latter) way, no matter whether politically more 'left' or 'right' or whatever, leads to madness...
Do not make the mistake of giving up the near in order to seek the far.

back on the H2O2, so personally (and I agree with Steve to not inject, ingest) I started disinfecting my toothbrush before and after brushing. sometimes disinfecting my hands after washing if I really need them to be super clean. seems quite good. (no i'm not self IVing)

Why are we (USA) nearly a third of worldwide cases and nearly a third of worldwide deaths?

Yes we can talk about accounting differences and per capita rates, but that doesn't seem good. We aren't a third of the population of the world.

Steve -
Glad you posted that - it's BS
The wife and I watched it last nite.
It is news for effect - not for disseminating fact.
There is a political war going on in Sao Paolo between the president
and the governor.

welllll, obesity is a risk factor or tied into many other underlying risk factors.

I'd like to see data by obese non obese for cases and deaths. I doubt that's the only difference here (but who knows).

The bot calls the kettle...

Having such a lack of self-awareness must be really comforting.

Brazil is expected to peak in two weeks and they are already suffering due to Bolsonaro's Trumpian tactics--He touts unproven and dangerous drugs, too!

Weight not likely a factor in Covid deaths
