A guy died a few days ago because he couldn't get his pancreatic surgery. He died waiting.

Because of Trump and Fox News etc wanting to hand Biden a loss. At first I could understand why they would want to politicize it, it seemed like Covid was mostly afflicting people in blue states, make it a local deal. But now? I am flabbergasted, disappointed, angry and mostly sad.

It's become identity politics and it's out of control. Even the great almighty Trump cannot sway. We've lost them. They will die. Fark them...hopefully painfully.

Those are all state laws, I think.

You think a GOP Governor is going to deny his voters their delicious apple horse paste?

This is true. But I like federal overreach.

In my line of work I investigate abnormalities in a manufacturing environment. One of the very most rudimentary tools we use is called the 5 whys. You look at your issue and ask why. Then you look at that explanation and ask why that happened. And then you drill down until you get to the bottom, the root cause. it may not be 5 levels necessarily, it might be more but usually it's not less. It's almost never human error.

I leave it as an exercise for farkers to deconvolute why gunshot victims in a red state like OK are unable to get treatment. Share your results. I think the responses from certain farkers should be entertaining.

I mean sure, but they've been anti-vaccine since before the election.

I'd blame a mix of some sort of weird toxic masculinity and the ongoing Republican desire to be smarter than people who actually know shiat about everything. Just like how red necks who never finished high school were championing trickledown economics and shiat.

It's too bad overdosing on the horse paste doesn't make you sterile instead of blind.

It's nice to know that as much as things change we really haven't moved on past human sacrifices, witch hunts, and astrology.

Send the antivaxxers and ivermectin aholes home. Treating them is a waste of medical resources. They know better than doctors anyways, so they'll be better off curing themselves.

That is 70 year problem.
Allowing these assholes to did from Covid is a more efficient solution if we exclude anti vacxxers from treatment.
We are far past where ruthlessness is the correct choice.
 
2021-09-04 1:11:03 AM  
Want to take horse medicines? Then go get treatment at a veterinary office when shiat doesn't work out.

People with legitimate emergencies should not be turned away because of these idiots. If a bed is needed, then some of these covidiots need to be kicked out. Wait it out at home since it's really nothing.

They shouldn't even be allowed medical treatment. Refusing a vaccine without a valid legal reason should be a waiver of medical services if that illness is contracted. And horse med ingestion should be treated as suicide attempts, which means psych evaluations and possible removal of gun ownership rights.

The is the third time this story has run here, all based on 'a doctor says'. The sourcing and complete lack of data makes this story sound a little bit far fetched.

Remember when everyone said those stupid millenials were doing tide pids and planking themselves to death? Yeah, we never glogged up hospitals doing stupid shiat.

Ha. Ha. Ha.

WhippingBoi: What sort of farked up country do you live in where "not being able to be treated for a gunshot wound" is even a concern?


I think the gunshot wound aspect of the situation may be true, but much smaller than the Insider story (and others) imply.

In my Oklahoma town of Stillwater, the mayor has declared an emergency.  Our pretty decent sized hospital is full of COVID patients.  The coughing from the tents outside should have told you.

Any flavor of emergency is likely to be hastily triaged and turned away to be transported to another city or even state if at all possible.  Here, this is much worse that the first wave or two where our hospital never quite reached capacity.

Because they would rather die (and kill everyone else) rather than admit that the "libs" were right about anything.
