WilderKWight: I'm in Michigan. Dad died this month of Covid.


Sorry for your loss, and the fraught family situation.

And I bet my brother, who lives in Grand Ledge, is still refusing to get vaxxed.

pushthelimits: gunther_bumpass: 151: It's getting like, really really bad. 17000 new cases between Tuesday and Wednesday. Hospitals are completely overwhelmed. And we're TWO farkING YEARS INTO THIS shiat.

Get your motherfarking vaccine you motherfarking assholes.

Just to reiterate - if all Americans hadn't been big whiny babies about missing their monthly holiday, and had participated in an actual lockdown, we'd be through this by now. But you just couldn't handle it, Americans of every stripe. "But my fambily, buht spring break, but Easter, but Mother's day, but graduation, but.. And you can see the corollating case spike after every one of them.

But we saved the economy, so that's something.

This is literally the third time I've seen you say some variation of this "all Americans" tripe. No, not all Americans have behaved the way you've described.



Feeling a little guilty, are we?

Of course not every single American. But hey, you got me on a technicality, so you win! Covid was only cuz Republicans!

Well, mainly one, but again, a technicality.

As an American  who is going on two farking years of lockdown life with my family; kiss my ass


Another literalist heard from.

You think I haven't? Kiss MY ass.

Let me guess... you're a coder.

That's a false narrative. Americans did observe lockdown: that's provable from cases of the common cold dropping to almost nothing in 2020, and several strains even going extinct.


Is it? Then why did covid spike?
Perhaps people didn't get as many colds because they washed their hands.

My nephew has had covid, a J&J vaccine and a Pfizer booster.  He also has covid again. This crap sucks. He's 23 years old with no medical issues.

Herd immunity. How does it work?

You don't understand vaccines.

What did I say that made you think I didn't understand vaccines?
My point is that  here in Michigan where Covid is running rampant, that no one is safe. It isn't just the unvaxxed that are getting sick.


My vaccinated stepson, who lives in MI, just came down with a pretty nasty case of Covid.  He's 26.

cretinbob: Read what you posted, examine your behavior, and tell me again how you are better than a Republican.


He didn't try to kidnap the governor, for one thing.

Guys, we can kill two birds with one stone here. Just start shoveling all the dead republicans into Lake Michigan to help bring the water level back up.

If they're the same doctors that I got with degrees from non-existent Carribean countries then this will all be sorted out shorlty with moderate doses of motrin.

Not surprising at all.  IQs start dropping rapidly once you leave the Detroit city limits.

By the time your four miles out of the city you've got maga hats and confederate flags on pickup trucks.  By the time you reach the border of Wisconsin you've got people so stupid that you'll think that you're already there.

Even Detroit itself isn't as safe it used to be, at least not since Ann Arbor began exporting their most hipsterist of hipsters into the city and flooded it with their foot-scooters and gluten-free bakeries.

We are a civilization in decline.  Our only consolation is that so many other states are declining even faster.

The water level is plenty high right now, it doesn't need to be higher.  The waterside walkways in Traverse City are under water and the marina downtown has water in the parking lot because water levels have come up a huge amount in the last couple years.  How about we throw the dead republicans in a landfill instead?

p51d007: Does it hurt to at least TRY?


When the company that owns the patent and makes the stuff says "This does not work against COVID-19", that's what counts.

Swear if people put as much effort into getting vaccinated as they do trying to bullshat their way around it we would have had this virus trashed by the July 4th holiday.
