You dont understand how cause and effect work do you?

I bet all those people who were executed by the SS when Hitler invaded europe dont count as dead in the war because they werent killed by the army? Or those dying of starvation? Or lack of hospitals?

You probably think that nobody died in WW2 since Hitler never killed anyone with his own hands.

And New Mexico hospitals are worried about an increase in cancer deaths because hospitals are too busy dealing with COVID to do screenings.

It is actually like dominos.

More and more floors are being converted to Covid wards. The ICUs are being filled-up. Once those are full than people stay in the ER if there isn't a room capable of treating you. As patients get stuck in the ER, hospitals will change their status to 'Closed to Trauma' so ambulances won't go to them. That will lead to lengthy rides in ambulances at first, but if what happens in one hospital is repeated in others it will only be a matter of time before the ambulances just treat people for as long as they can in the field - waiting for a hospital within an hour or two to open to new cases. Then when you call 911 the operator will advise that they can't route an ambulance to you at this time. Finally, people load their relative into the car, drive to the hospital and are turned away or they just go in and sit in a crowded lobby.

These kind of things happen when major disasters strike or wars. In 2021 it just might be January.

I don't think it could have been more obvious that this comment was sarcastic.  You're pissed off at someone who agrees with you.  Turn it down a notch.

The refrain we've heard time and time again is that the numbers are purposely inflated.  Which is stupid, because all you have to do is look at the excess death numbers to see how the pandemic is affecting us.  In a nation as large as the US, morbid as it might seem, it's easy to estimate the approximate number of Americans who should die on a week to week basis.  It's normally fairly predictable. When the number of deaths begins to surpass that number of expected deaths on a regular basis, you know something is amiss.  You see it sometimes during particularly bad flu seasons, but you're seeing it like nobody's business the last eight months.

My mother, who is an ardent right winger, was complaining about this back in April.  She argued that if her mom (my grandmother who was in terrible shape for decades) had died of Covid they would have chalked it up to the disease even though she was in terrible shape and would have died anyways.  I told mom, "Sure, and if someone had busted in her door and bludgeoned her with a hatchet they would have called it a murder, because it would have been one. People's lives have meaning no matter how old they are."  I have to wonder if mom is still going to feel the same way in 20 years when she is 90 years old too.

Why not just ask c19 ppl to just say home and die?
We regularly demand that illegals stay in their home nation and die.
We sent Jews back to Germany.
We dragged natives to wounded knee.

Or how about not make healthcare care a luxury?
How about let everyone, at least, buy Medicare?
And, maybe have a UBI?
But, hay you all do you. I guess.
FML
I guess we can all choke and die on the principle of the matter.
And wiper tears with our bootstraps?

Enjoy smaller government.
Enjoy no Death tax as c19 kills mama and papa.
Enjoy the 1/10 bulit wall.
Enjoy sticking it to the snow ❄

COVID sufferers, those who have been in car accidents, those who have heart attacks, cancer patients, etc aren't going to riot.

But don't expect their family members to consider rationing of care to be reasonable.

"Deny care to other people, not my loved ones" will be the cry before the punches start flying.

And the CHUDs are sending death threats to healthcare workers ensuring they'll be fewer of them

Health worker quits over repeated threats

No matter that the people threatening her may need her expertise in the future when they get COVID, demonstrating your undying fealty to the Fat Orange Tittybaby one is all that matters.

One time, in like 2009 I hooked up with a chick from work that went to ASU. Goddamn was she dumb and boring and easy.

I also worked with the dude she ended up marrying and having two kids with. He unfollowed me a while back, while she still likes every dumbshiat post I do. Over there it's all normal shiat, btw... cats and food and scenery and shiat. None of the depraved nonsense I post here bc none of you mfers know my name.

Anyway. People from AZ and people that willingly spent time there are trash.

If you understood the "bully" mentality you'd realize this is a feature for them. They see freezer trucks full of dead bodies and it makes them feel like they're +1% more of a man, or don't have a broken dick or whatever.

They see those dead people and those that are suffering as proof of their strength. It's sick. But you should see it for what it is.

For those that need the joke explained:

"Expectant" in triage does not mean "about to give birth", it means "about to die".  The diagram means that both doomed (expectant) cases and minor (non emergent) cases get turned away:  one because there's nothing that can be done and one because there's nothing that needs be done.  Only middle cases-ones where urgent treatment is indicated and would be worth doing-proceed to the procedure room.

And in this diagram, the doomed ones go to the left.

In fairness, UBI wouldn't really help anyone living beyond the lifestyle that UBI would afford them.

IE -literally everyone working instead of hanging out all day playing video games would have a higher income than UBI alone provides. And almost everyone spends more when they make more.

So you would still have people who have to decide to go to work, or not pay their bills... And for the businesses your forcefully shutdown, you would still have financially devistated people.
