Why do you think the GOP have been so fanatical about disenfranchising voters that might vote for the Democrats? There are going to be one hell of a lot fewer republicans by next election.

A lot of Floridians will be turning blue well before then, Subby.

And yesterday, 92 Floridians died from COVID.

Meanwhile DeathSantis is in Utah spewing anti-Fauci and libertarian bullshiat keynoting at an ALEC conference.

Soon enough MS and SC will be eclipsing NY in terms of new Covid cases per day.

He just gave up trying to do his job and just went 100% into "campaign mode" huh?

It's sobering to think of elected leaders supporting something that is killing their base.

It's even more sobering to think that the base will re-elect those guys.

Gee, it's almost like doctors who are six figures in debt and went to school for 12+ years know more about infectious diseases than Uncle Carl or Joe the mechanic down at Midas.

Are there any stats that show covid deaths by political affiliation?

I thought Florida was under reporting their numbers.

Republicans, instead of delivering for voters, will simply bar the voters who don't like them from voting.

Democrats, instead of delivering for voters, will simply demand that they vote even harder next time.

Ain't our government grand?

Dumbass red hatters, why didn't you get the free vaccine?
 
2021-07-29 9:39:05 PM  
I'm sick & tired of these antivaxx f*ckheads! I've gotten my 2 doses and I'd gladly go in for a 3rd. If these primitives hillbilly screwheads want to keep avoiding common sense? F*ck em!

Time to see who's stronger: My Science or their stupid rightwing nazi God?
 
2021-07-29 9:39:12 PM  

AsparagusFTW: Cases before death. 2-3 weeks from now will be terrifying.


The old and infirm are the ones who were in a rush to be vaccinated. I expect these are cases amongst the young and relatively healthy. And, just as quickly as the spike goes up, it will come back down. This is what appears to have happened with Delta in the UK.
 
2021-07-29 9:39:13 PM  
Again, I really want to see this split up by vaccination status. I know we have basic percentages floating around, but these numbers don't mean much in their own.

untoldforce: It's sobering to think of elected leaders supporting something that is killing their base.

Its even more sobering that because people voted for them, murdering thousands of people aint getting their asses arrested for murder.

If I were Biden, all those plague rats governors would be arrested and the AG would be filling federal murder charges against all of em.

hotrod2001: Gee, it's almost like doctors who are six figures in debt and went to school for 12+ years know more about infectious diseases than Uncle Carl or Joe the mechanic down at Midas.


Hey, my Uncle Carl is a paramedic.  He knows a lot about medical stuff

Unfortunately, he's also a born again Christian who thinks that his autistic, gender fluid son is either a test or punishment from god.   And he's refusing to get the vaccine

(My cousin said he's managed to get vaccinated, though.  Luckily, he's high functioning)

Don't hold your breath.

hervatski: Are there any stats that show covid deaths by political affiliation?


At this point, there is only one group that is refusing vaccinations and mask wearing.

He used the virus and then the vaccine rollout to 'campaign mode' all over Florida. Now he's taking it on the road because he sees a chink in Trump's armor for 2024. Evil and shrewd.

I am sure one of our resident Covidiots TM Fark.com
will be here shortly to explain why "covid is not so bad" and everyone is over reacting because there was not a million dead yet.

As soon as he sucks it out of my balls through my meat straw.

And Ga and LA are neck and neck to overtake CA at the same time. Wow.
 
2021-07-29 9:44:09 PM  
Today I snuck my 13 old nephew out of the house to get his first dose of the vaccine. My sister is suddenly antivax because her meth head husband is deep into conspiracies. She works at a doctors office affiliated with Ascension who just came down with a vaccine mandatory by November 12th.

She's just going to quit instead.

The pharmacy didn't ask if I was my nephews mom, they just asked for his birthday.

I'm actually quite drunk from the whole affair. The lines bordering reality have become blurry. The walls of sanity are crumb-diddly-umbling.

17,589 new cases yesterday.

And that is likely being under reported due to DeSantis.

And COVID-19 can't be challenged in court. So much for GOP "logic."
 
2021-07-29 9:45:03 PM  
What's wild to me is that a competent approach to the pandemic would have easily handed Trump a second term.

But...that would have required competence and hard work.

And now that they've spent so much time treating middle school biology as a conspiracy the GOP cannot undo the wave of stupid they've unleashed.

Most cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are from the unvaccinated.

The number one predictor of vaccine status (aside from being under 12) is political affiliation.

If we want to be a bit more targeted, it is white evangelical christians.

I don't know how bad the deaths are going to be over the next 1-3 months, but a good chunk of them will be the Republican base.

I figured that Trumpism would eventually kill the Republican party, but I always thought it would be figuratively, not literally.
 
2021-07-29 9:45:05 PM  
Well, at least now we know that Four Loko doesn't work as a vaccine substitute.
