Are they whining that infants all have to get vaccinated for a shiatload of diseases too?
 
2021-09-16 10:42:42 AM  
Lol you just can't make this shiat up.
 
2021-09-16 10:42:53 AM  
You know, at this rate, given the majority of who isn't getting vaccinated and who is against vaccines and masks, we could start seeing COVID variants that have a much higher rate of transmission, are deadlier, and prefer far-right republicans as easy targets.

/Hush. Let me dream a little.

Integrity spelled with a B and S
 
2021-09-16 11:15:39 AM  
They would have probably "missed" the filing deadline regardless of what happened to their bookkeeper.

"Election integrity" needs to be qualified in quotes.

I am unable to respond appropriately, as I might need to make further use of the "h" and "a" keys on my computer at some point.

Comments on a Facebook post by a friend of Prentice's that shared news of his death included claims it was murder, praise for ivermectin and offers from a wellness coach to share her "amazing protocol."
Of course.

By "election integrity" i'm assuming they mesn only allowing republicans to vote.

Actual irony and not of the Alanis Morrisette variety
 
2021-09-16 11:27:31 AM  
We may have to suspenf voting all together in places where too many Republicans have died. Out of fairness.

As I was saying, aside from the obvious effects of this virus, one of the bad things that happened, at least for me, was my depletion of compassion, and empathy.

I really just don't give a flying fark when one of these Covidiots kicks it. I feel bad for their kids, if they have any. But that's about it.
 
2021-09-16 11:30:16 AM  
Blame the computer hasn't worked since 1985. Can't file electronically?  Try F1.
 
2021-09-16 11:30:22 AM  
It's a form letter.  They just crossed out all the references to "Dynamite Monkey" and "blowed up" and "office in a shambles."

My current audiobook is Semiosis by Sue Burke. It's all about a human colony on a planet where plants had an extra billion years to evolve. TLDR, the plants can "think". Currently, some of the plants are trying to attract the humans because the humans provide it with water and compost.

Other plants are killing humans because they want their compost faster. It's an interesting concept.

Instead of criticizing them, you really should applaud their level of commitment to their principles. Otherwise I'd have to post:

In addition to everything else, TFA makes it clear that the reason this is a problem is that they had a one man developed software with no documentation and no one else trained in it.   So...they're operating under the best practices of what, 1970?
 
2021-09-16 11:42:58 AM  
Election Integrity. Like Religious Freedom and Right To Work. For a group of people that used to love talking about 1984 as a cautionary tale, those motherfarkers sure have glommed onto Newspeak.

I hate to get all Thanos about it, but at this point I rather wish a super COVID would sweep through and take out all the unvaccinated people. It's been long enough, sorry if you were scared by Nikki Minaj but enough is enough.

Could you imagine how much we could get done without the loudest, stupidest people?People constantly working against their own self interests and imposing their ideas on others designed to crush free thought and innovation would all disappear.

That's a snap worth considering.

That's not irony!

Seriously, it's just an expected outcome.  It would be irony if that one guy that died had tried to convince the rest of the group to take precautions and he was the only one that died of COVID.

They are in the waiting room of the ER waiting for a bed to open up.

It's a little more believable than "my grandmother died again", but it's gotta hurt for those pandemic-denying chucklenuggets to have to say it.

LarryDan43: We may have to suspenf voting all together in places where too many Republicans have died. Out of fairness.


We should have them vote now for candidates in 2022 and 2024, just in case they die. You wouldn't want their votes not to be counted, would you?

Mugato: Are they whining that infants all have to get vaccinated for a shiatload of diseases too?


Some of them probably do. I remember a big kerfuffle over vitamin k injections some years ago. It made a bunch of kids really sick

Mugato: Are they whining that infants all have to get vaccinated for a shiatload of diseases too?


Well, yeah. Once they start down the rabbit hole, these idiots will go as far as refusing the vitamin K shot and blame everyone but themselves when the baby dies.

We're witnessing the disease of anti-intellectualism being tied inexorably to politics and religion and spreading at an unprecedented rate through social media. This doesn't end until the susceptible wipe themselves out, or enough of their kids get inoculated to push the older generations out of power. With Repubs doing their best to dismantle school boards, inoculation isn't looking too good.
 
2021-09-16 12:03:43 PM  
Now they are claiming the hospital is "intubating people against their will" - which if there is a merciful Jesus will result in refusing ventilators for antivaxers. Let's get this over with.

In my experience, that's what happens when you have a guy who has only one job to do.  He doesn't tell anyone else to do it...then he has a job for life.

/which, in this case, didn't turn out to be as long as he expected
 
2021-09-16 12:21:40 PM  
Tell them they can't die of a hoax.
 
2021-09-16 12:24:25 PM  
Covid is a hoax. Your bookkeeper is still alive. Get your forms done

I vacationing in beautiful Central Pennsylvania just now.  The customers in stores are equally divided between those whom I assume are vaccinated wearing masks, and those who are burning with secret knowledge of microbiology and perhaps fever, and smirking visibly.

don't feel bad about not feeling bad...
- these ppl put their community at risk and were quite happy to keep on doing it, and it's ok to prefer your community to be safe
- these ppl got exactly what they wanted. they chose this path, they got their wish. what's sad about that?
 
2021-09-16 1:07:47 PM  
Was he vaccinated? No?
This sounds like a professional liability. Maybe they should require their employees to be vaccinated to protect themselves from this kind of business risk.

Can Fark just start immediately auto-commenting these threads with the OhNoAnyway.jpg to get it out of the way. It would save time.
