I know what's best for my health and my children's and their classmates and my coworkers and random strangers in the supermarket.  I don't need governdammit experts telling me what to do, I've got Facebook doctors telling me stuff I already agree with.

It's a shame that there is zero political opposition to this. But, then, it's Republicans doing things which means everyone has to go along with it in this shiathole country.

These states will form the Covidfederate States of Murica.

Then they'll declare war on the rest.

Pants full of macaroni!!: These states will form the Covidfederate States of Murica.

This scenario cuts down on a lot of heavy lifting from blue USA.

I don't know if you've noticed but they've already declared war. Every kid or immunocompromised person that's been infected since the vaccine was available, or because of no mask mandate/anti maskers is a casualty.

The problem with that is there are a lot of blue areas in the red states. The divide is mostly urban/rural. Unfortunately, the boot-strappy country folk conveniently ignore farm price supports and tax breaks designed to bring manufacturing and warehousing to their world, until someone says we should cut that out. They ignore the ethanol subsidies (possible paywall) and tax breaks. They also ignore the huge immigrant populations working on farms and other parts of the food production cycle, until they can't get temporary work visas.

But they don't want the gubmint in their bidness.

It is funny (sad?) when 'mericans froth at the mouth about how those Afghans (many factions, not a single people) were unable/unwilling to protect their country as it fell to the Taliban while living in the US where we are falling to COVID because we can't get all of the US factions to wear a mask.

Eventually something much more lethal than covid will come along (imagine smallpox) and we will find that these stupid farks have farked us all.

the 1% and big business turds have been undermining our Democratic government institutions for the last 40 years.    they want to privatize everything and put themselves in charge since they own all the Capital/Wealth.  plus, that will cut their taxes.  we all know how much they jerk off to tax cuts.

where you been??

So, dystopian Bubble/Domed cities, and apocalyptic wastelands outside of them surrounded by YeeHaw'dists.  Seems as likely a fall for New Rome as any other.
