No it's not. That's just the media making that up. How come Faux news isn't reporting this if it's true? Laura Ingram and Sean Hanity said we don't even need a mask because it's just a head cold!
Besides, it'll run it's course and everyone will be fine. Just you wait and see.

Yes.
But, sometimes it sounds different when someone else says it.

My dream is that one person hears it, considers it.

Honestly, should we consider reaching out to the right. Perhaps there is a way to start a public dialogue with some of the more reasonable of the Republicans.

This divided America isn't good. We're all Americans. Surely we can do better.

In life, people fights and relationships get tested. One way to work this out is to sit down and talk it through. There can be no harm in doing this. Each side talks and backs up their arguments with facts. Overtime, people will see that violence isn't needed and we can work together for a better country.

That means we're only 10 years from everyone having had it.

The whole thing is nothing worse than a reaction to allergies. Just like anaphylactic shock.

They just released updated interim modelling for BC. Anyone who wanted to be fully vaccinated before being exposed to Delta had better get their first shot 6-8 weeks ago. For everyone else, it's too late. This thing will be rampant here before the end of August.

My town is still at less than half with a first dose in the 18-49 range. This should be fun.

Reality doesn't care what Fox News tells people to think.  Actions have consequences.  Failure to take action also has consequences.  Everyone has access to all the information required to choose which actions to take.

Reality is unfolding in a predictable way in response to the choices being made.  It is blindingly obvious they are not the optimal choices for anyone who cares about human life and quality of life.

We have tried this for years, on many different subjects. It fails when you try to find reasonable Republicans. You cannot reason people out of an opinion they didn't reason themselves into. It brought us Jan. 6th, and is going to end up killing nearly a million citizens before it is over. Everyone reasonable has just run out of patience. We wish it could be left as "to each their own, but leave me alone", but they are determined to take as many of us with them as they can. They have moved from being "eccentric", to being downright dangerous.

Delta variant was a game changer, once it appeared we knew this was going to happen...to include vaccinated getting affected.  The key is vaccinated have a much, much higher chance of not dying.

As we have seen Covid spikes in the fall. If we dont get a handle on this thing its going to be crazy. I really thought getting the vaccine out would make all the difference. I guess I'm overly optimistic when it comes to my fellow Americans doing the right thing.

These monsters taking advantage of the weak minded in our society should be put down like rabid dogs.

A month ago the rolling 7 day average was ~15K/day and now we are at 100K/day.

More than a 600% increase in 30 days.

The velocity of growth is alarming. Not looking forward to the next six weeks.

I miss the talking point last year that this would magically go away because the virus was politically attuned.

Exactly one year ago, Cruz told cameras that he "guaranteed" Democrats' Covid concerns would miraculously disappear should Joe Biden win the election: "If it ends up that Biden wins in November - I hope he doesn't, I don't think he will - but if he does, I guarantee you the week after the election, suddenly all those Democratic governors, all those Democratic mayors will say everything's magically better," he said.

"You won't even have to wait for Biden to be sworn in. All they'll need is Election Day and suddenly their willingness to destroy people's lives and livelihoods, they will have accomplished their task," Cruz continued. "That's wrong, it's cynical and we shouldn't be a part of it."

No.. he has 47+ years of government paychecks under his belt... and he is failing because he doesn't know what to do... someone else always made the decisions... and still do. The Left wanted a front person who would follow orders.. they have two of them.   The Constitution states "We The People"... we now have "Me The Person", and we have allowed ourselves to be fragmented into groups, therefore losing the cohesiveness that made America what it used to be.. we had a good run, though...  happens when you don't learn from history and remember what you learned... deal with it.  It is what it is.

What can he do?  Mandate vaccines for everybody, arrest people who refuse?  He's the president of everybody, including the gullible idiots, so he has to take their snowflake feeling into account.  He has to encourage them gently so they don't spook and start shooting.  It's not easy, they don't understand reason or science.

That would only make sense if Democratic policies ever worked properly. LBJs "War Against Poverty" is one example of a fark up entirely designed, crafted, and executed by Democrats which failed so hard we spent the next three decades razing all the housing projects that administration built. The ObamaCare website fiasco is another one. Pushing for lower lending standards on housing loans yet another.

The GOP is a bunch of evil, disgusting, misanthropic, awful people, but the fact that Democrats suck so hard so god damn always is frankly farking infuriating.
