Does West Virginia have a vaccine mandate?  No.  Do they have a mask mandate?  No.  Oh well, I'm sure a stern talking to will help.
 
2021-09-19 10:31:51 AM  
Then is he going to initiate consequences, rather than empty words? Require businesses to compel vaccination of workers and customers? Proof of vaxx for state highway travel? Anything?? No?

Oh well.

He must have some support.  Perhaps most girls are not named "Karen" there or the entire state was formed as a way to escape Virginia Gerrymandering.

"Going to..." ??? Farking future tense bullshiat that hide the past and present.

No Subby, that's a Governor who is blowing sunshine up the voter's ass. Just another American who thinks that leadership means lying.

"We're going to run to the fire and get vaccinated right now, or we're going to pile the body bags up until we reach a point in time to where we have enough people that have natural immunities and enough people that are vaccinated," he said.

Eloquent.

If the collective actions of the GOP from 2015-present didn't make you erase the (R) next to your name, you don't get to stand here today with any credibility claiming you give a single f*ck about anything besides lining your own pockets.

I imagine it's probably close to the number of people who demand vaccine mandates because the vaccine doesn't prevent people from getting sick.

Vaccinated people aren't the ones in the body bags.  We want everyone to be vaccinated because we would like our ICUs to have free beds for things other than Covid.

Better question:  How many Unvaxxed have died since Biden stood up and promised he had a plan to stop the virus?

He promised 1000's wouldn't die if they got vaccinated.  They chose not to.  How in the fark is this Bidens' fault?  After all, it's the "Trump vaccine".

Here's super duper tough guy Eric Bolling getting his Trump vaccine and whining like a 6 year old:

I meant to run for his second term. But checking it just now, I realize I was misinterpreting the article. I had thought he switched in 2019 as he was starting he re-elect. But he switched in 2017 when he was going to do a rally with Trump. So I guess I don't have a point at all.

The worst thing about the Democrats is that they don't do enough to stop the Republicans from destroying the country.

And Republicans actually run on this...
 
2021-09-19 11:40:01 AM  
After being the last state to admit that they had a COVID case (and let's not pretend that they were the last to actually HAVE one) suddenly their governor deserves applause because, over a year and a half into it, he's saying "Come on guys..."?

Yes. though it does happen occasionally, Democrats generally don't tolerate politicians that like coaching boys basketball teams.

Republicans: *refuse to wear a mask, get vaccinated, or take any precautions whatsoever, to the point of outright making it illegal in red states to mandate said precautions, even as hundreds of thousands of Americans are dead and hospitals across the country are approaching or exceeding their ICU capacities*

It reduces the incidence of getting sick, and the severity, if you do.

But then you knew that, and are simply lying via context/nuance omission again.

Or just proving your ignorance.

In either case:

Ah, here it is.  I am convinced that the reason that the GQP is fighting vaccination is that they want to be able to claim, eventually, that more people died of COVID on Biden's watch than on Trump's.
