Subby, how far back do you want to go?

We could have been out exploring the Galaxy had we not been sabotaged by the right wing this last millennium.

The regressives have always been a problem for humanity in every culture. Until we find a way to deal with them, they will slow us down at best and outright kill us at worst.

We're actually farking up pretty bad without the right wing bullshiat.

And yes, I'm talking about Simena, Manchin and the others who refuse to nuke the filibuster and pass the For the People Act, and the Democrats who frankly won't risk their careers to force them into line.

Who the fark needs "right wing sabotage efforts" when we have willing participants who are supposedly on our same side?

Fear is a powerful motivator., just take a look at fox's earning sheet.

With a unified National Will ,  we would be well behind this.

We are the envy of the world. We have more vaccine than we can administer and you have to DRIVE,in your own car. less than 15 minutes to get  it.
And yet we refuse.

I have personalty seen people come from hundreds of mile away through brutal conditions to stand in a queue two days deep to get some help/hope.

And yet we refuse.
And yet we rufuse.
 
2021-07-30 5:08:00 PM  
I'll take whatever good news we get. But:

It takes 6 weeks to be considered fully vaccinated. Infections are growing 40% a week. We'll probably be seeing half a million infections a day by the time the people getting vaccinated today are protected.

Yup. The religious scum in robes should be dealt with once and for all along with all their puppets in government.

Jewish, christian and muslims mostly. Wipe out the god in the clouds scum and humanity will be much better.

The perfect is the enemy of the good. I'm immensely grateful that Biden has a confirmed cabinet to clean up 4 years of Trump's horrific rulemaking in the executive branch, and that he can get his judicial appointments confirmed. I won't spit on that just because there's something bigger I won't get.

Well, that's great, but case numbers are skyrocketing faster than ever before and if your first shot was yesterday you won't be fully protected for 7-8 weeks.

You can be thankful for what you have and want more without "spitting" on anything. That's a conservative mindset. "You didn't praise me enough for my minimal effort so now I hate you!"

Eugenics is the only reasonably humane 'deal with them' option for authoritarian personality types (otherwise known as conservatives). Find DNA biomarkers for conservatism and prohibit carriers from breeding.

COVID is going to do a fair job of being a less humane way of dealing with conservatives, however. The gene pool is going to be an awful lot cleaner after the anti-vax/anti-mask crowd has had its numbers culled.

No, no it's not.  95.2% deaths from Covid in the US are age 50 or above; IE, above child bearing age.

Covid fails at being a Darwin Award trigger.

Well, we wouldn't have had President Useless farkwad, so all of this would have been a lot less painful.

They've been holding us back for decades. At least.

While true:
1. Men above age 50 are still capable of being fathers - COVID may help remove them from the breeding population
2. COVID may cause infertility among men of any age. So all those dude-bros avoiding shots and getting COVID might be the end of their line, after all:

You mean the extremely biased view of history we have that has continually buried facts and people which didn't fit the narrative of the church?

As for scientific advancement, the reason the church claims so many scientists is that ones who didn't claim they were religious were murdered and their work suppressed. For all we know, penicillian was discovered in 8th century Venice but the Pope felt it was heretical.

I'm on my local Neighborhood email thingy and I just saw someone on there begging people to please get vaccinated. One of the responses was how their aunt had to get their leg amputated because of the vaccine and their mother's leg turned wine red and...I didn't read the rest.

There were some studies of hospital workers who were tested weekly, that calculated between 80-95% effective two weeks after the first dose.

But of course, that was back in February/March, well before we were dealing with Delta.

So we might not have to wait 6 weeks to see some results from people getting vaccinated

Because religious folk kept learning alive for a couple millennium.  That goes for Christian and Muslim societies.
In China it was the civil authorities that destroyed learning and plunged them into a thousand years of utter backward nonsense
