The reason These People moved to Idaho is because nobody else could put up with them.

To help kill as many white trash seditionists as possible, I loudly applaud this appointment.

Is that why everyone in Idaho is dying? Because Republicans are the dumbest people on the planet?

If I'm remembering right, this new guy replaced an actual doctor with 15+ years of experience, who was fired for pushing for a mask mandate

For those who don't know, Ada County is where BOISE is.

That's the best and brightest Idaho has to offer.

So, you're telling me that Dr. Ryan "COVID vaccines are needle rape" Cole *wasn't* the best person to place on the Idaho Regional Health Board?

My contribution to this thread in the form of an FU to the person who got the green on the Palin thread.

Column: 'Death panels' arrive - in COVID-stricken Republican Idaho

Jeppesen was not exaggerating the crisis. His agency reported that a record 678 patients were hospitalized with COVID-19 in Idaho as of Monday, including 173 in intensive care - and those almost certainly were undercounts. On Wednesday, the state said, only 12 adult ICU beds were staffed and available in the entire state.

As many as 97% of the COVID patients in Idaho intensive care units were unvaccinated. That's no surprise, because Idaho has one of the lowest vaccination rates in the country, as reckoned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Only about 50.5% of Idahoans 12 and older are fully vaccinated, well below the national average of 63.3% nationally. Only Alabama, West Virginia and Wyoming have done worse, the CDC says.

Cole is a pathologist who runs a medical testing center in Boise and whose public appearances have come to focus on COVID-19. The doctor - who, according to his résumé, used to present mostly to medical conferences - has made most of his 2021 appearance at statehouses and on right-wing media, often disparaging the shots proven safe and effective in large trials.

If you have his resume, why not tell us where he went to medical school? I'm betting on the University of Phoenix.

While Boise is fairly blue, the county is red and elected two complete fark sticks as commissioners.  They pushed this quack through to the board.  The doctor owns a lab that gets paid to process Covid tests, so he personally benefits from more infected people.  Also, he and his family are all vaccinated, he's just an opportunist looking to make some bucks off of dumb people and death.

Well just think. Pretty soon we'll have bunch of empty space with cities already built that we can resettle refugees in. It's like that episode of Star Trek: TNG where everyone in the colony were clones. Only this time there won't be the need to rely on horrible Irish stereotypes.

All 50 states have politicians that have tried to pass new regulations limiting public health powers since the pandemic started; I think we're up to 26 states that have actually succeeded. As bad as the current pandemic is, the next one is going to be worse because state and local political whack jobs are undermining public health officials during a national crisis.

This makes me so sad.

My current (SoCal-based) employer has just opened a call-center in Boise.  COVID has taught the company that remote or semi-remote work is viable for my kind of job, so they're definitely open to more of their employees exploring different arrangements.  Given my love of the outdoors, etc., Boise would be a great place to live "near-enough" to for the obligatory "in-office" days, whilst offering the chance to live somewhere greener and cheaper than SoCal...

But there's no way I'd move my family to a county with that many nutters...

(shrug) fark Idaho. For that matter, fark every state with stupid assholes like this in charge (including mine; our governor is still a piece of shiat).

I have no farks left to give about their appalling voters dying. Every one who dies now makes our country greater.

Thanks, COVID!

To be clear, it's irrelevant why you are presenting to the hospital. You could be in a car wreck and be triaged out of receiving care. You could have a heart attack or a stroke and be triaged out of receiving care. You could have appendicitis and be triaged out of receiving care.

Better start stocking up on thoughts and prayers, Idahoans, because your doctors and nurses can't save you anymore.

Time to stay the fark out of Idaho.

I'm sick of these motherforking antivaxxers. This is wrong.

There should be a sign on the end of every hospital bed saying if they've been vaccinated or not. If a non-covid emergency case shows up and needs life-saving treatment, pick the most recent antivaxxer to show up and throw them in the ditch. For those who have been there longer, we've already invested some effort in fixing them and they might get out sooner.

Tough shiat.
