Yes they goddamn are, 100% They've blocked and/or incessantly b*tched and whined about every attempt to beat this


cretinbob:People are fatigued and don't want to do it anymore.

No sh*t, Einstein, but "Boo hoo, pandemics make me sad" isn't an excuse to behave the way Republicans have.


cretinbob:They were told the vaccine was 100% effective

Are you a liar or do you really believe this? Honest question. Literally f*cking NO ONE has said this. Ever.


Michigan guy here, and I've watched the assholes from the Republican Party fight our Governor EVERY STEP OF THE WAY in her attempts to keep this from spreading, with all their endless simpering about "freedoms" and their whiny fat faces with their sh*tty little beards and their gas station wraparound sunglasses and their waddling around Lansing with AR15s and their goddamn KIDNAPPING ATTEMPT OF MICHIGAN'S GOVERNOR.

So while it may be in poor taste to grab their lapels and scream "F*ck YOU you ignorant F*CKs!" into their stupid Trump-licking faces, that's exactly what I would like to do. But I won't, because we all know just how precious and delicate your little Republican feelings are.

I will say, however, that I wholeheartedly support you people refusing the vaccine - because if it was up to ME you would be denied access to it.

Yeah, places like NZ or AU see SEVENTEEN new cases and it's shut down everything. 17000 over 48 hours in one goddamn state is asinine. And nothing is really being done. Because the governor doesn't want to farking get kidnapped for trying to save your stupid redneck farking lives.

People are fatigued and don't want to do it anymore. They want "normal" back because they've been conditioned that holidays are actually important so they go around spreading it. They were told the vaccine was 100% effective so they run around infecting each other. Well, they thought they were told that because the average American is farking dumb as hell, regardless of political bent. They forget the whole "This vaccine may not be the final one that works best" part.
That's not happy thoughts and Americans want to be fed happy thoughts. On the local news they showed everyone out on Halloween and they even called it the end of COVID. That was the phrase they used. "The end of COVID". Of course I yelled at the TV, "You stupid farks, wait three weeks.
And what happened three weeks later?
Yeah, that's right.

If you haven't seen Lewis Black: Thank you for Risking Your Life, watch it.
He was on tour when COVID hit. This is his last show, right as the lock down started.
He goes on for a good bit about the hubris of Americans, how they are mindless consumers and how that's why everything is all farked up in a very direct way AT the audience. He talks about serious problems that we were facing and the audience just laughed. It was shiat no one should have been laughing about if they possessed the capacity for rational thought.
Yet there they were. Laughing because they were conditioned to, Guy on stage is supposed to be funny, right? Every time he says something, we're supposed to laugh right?
farking fark that shiat.

The fact some many people lead their existence by their conditioning is why America is so farked up. Blaming "others" for our own problems is why America is so farking farked up. People need to knock that farking shiat off.
It's a force of farking nature, people. It's like the wind and the rain. There isn't shiat anyone can do about it except h ...

I'm in Michigan. Dad died this month of Covid. The rest the family (save one) is in denial about it being Covid or about their anti-vaccination right-wing religious cult beliefs being part of the reason Dad's dead. I'm being ostracized for being the crazy lefty who got vaccinated and begged my family to do the same.

There's no moment when right-wingers have a lightbulb go on over their head and they realize that all the stuff they've been fed by their Facebook group and church has been manipulative, insane, baseless garbage. No... They double down, create a new lie to protect themselves from the ugly truth, and then burn the witch who says "maybe this could have been prevented with a little bit of reason."

There's no happy ending to the Covid story. Millions will die while flipping off the rest of us, and their like-minded family and friends will blame the rest of us for their misery and fear while causing us the same.

The cult can't be un-brainwashed. Not even death scares them into reality. And it's horrifying and disheartening to bear witness to it, knowing there's no hope of reaching them... Knowing they've convinced themselves there's no hope of "reaching" the rest of us and getting us to join them and be "saved" from the conspiracy.

I feel like Rosemary in Rosemary's Baby. It sucks. I don't recommend it.

Anyway, the big problem in Michigan is that the western coast of the state and most of the "middle of nowhere" parts of the state with small populations (that add up when put together) have a large number of people who are all-in on the cult, and their legislators cut off the Governor's ability to protect the public health because those people NEEDED to be able to go out to bars, gather in churches, and overpopulate restaurants and county fairs. They couldn't hold off for a year. They couldn't vaccinate because that's been politicized. They don't care about anyone else, and they don't believe COVID-19 is really a big deal.

And there aren't enough sane, rational people to oppose the death cult. So... cheers, I guess.

Hospital ICUs were already overwhelmed before the pandemic, this just lowers the overall quality of care for everyone, especially those who have been vaccinated and are hospitalized in critical care for non-covid illnesses (I.e. those who did the correct thing)

Yes, but it was rules already in place. It wasn't anything started by Trump or put in place by him.

No, it was just a piss-weak excuse for Fat Donny to point at a line drawn on the ground and simper "I'm not allowed to cross that so you're all on your own." Everyone knows Trump only follows rules when they suit him or when he's forced to.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst

So while it may be in poor taste to grab their lapels and scream "F*ck YOU you ignorant F*CKs!" into their stupid Trump-licking faces, that's exactly what I would like to do. But I won't, because we all know just how precious and delicate your little Republican feelings are.

I will say, however, that I wholeheartedly support you people refusing the vaccine - because if it was up to ME you would be denied access to it.

Read what you posted, examine your behavior, and tell me again how you are better than a Republican.
You aren't. You are the same. You are the dumb, average American who lacks self awareness.
It's all right there in the language you use. That's how words work. You tell us what you are and you process your thoughts.

Look beyond the entertainment of government, btw I can tell you are the kind of person who requires drama at the expense of others and are unable to entertain yourself, and look at the herd behavior.
When you graduate and get to college pay close attention to the anthro and psych courses. They are super important.

Just so I have this right--this isn't considered a national emergency? Because I feel like if it were, we should be able to, I dunno, institute mandates or something rather than just throw a bandaid over this sucking wound and hoping for the best while the states continue to do nothing to stop the many thousands of deaths of their citizens at the hands of their deliberate neglect.

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.


I mean, I hope he was taking proper precautions, masking up etc. Because I know a lot of people that threw caution to the winds once they were vaxxed. Regardless I hope he recovers quickly with no lingering symptoms.

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.

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.


That was great. This year, however, people are sick as shiat. Half my coworkers are coughing up a lung. We make them mask, and be tested, but the colds are disgusting this year. And if folks are passing colds around, they're passing COVID.

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.

While I'd be happy to blame the GOP for everything, COVID numbers are exploding all over the world, and even Europe has been experiencing protests due to implementation of new lockdowns.

The GOP has definitely mishandled the pandemic from the very beginning in this country, but at this point it's way beyond a single party in one country.

Barricaded Gunman: cretinbob: The GOP isn't to blame this time.

Yes they goddamn are, 100% They've blocked and/or incessantly b*tched and whined about every attempt to beat this


cretinbob:People are fatigued and don't want to do it anymore.

No sh*t, Einstein, but "Boo hoo, pandemics make me sad" isn't an excuse to behave the way Republicans have.


cretinbob:They were told the vaccine was 100% effective

Are you a liar or do you really believe this? Honest question. Literally f*cking NO ONE has said this. Ever.


Michigan guy here, and I've watched the assholes from the Republican Party fight our Governor EVERY STEP OF THE WAY in her attempts to keep this from spreading, with all their endless simpering about "freedoms" and their whiny fat faces with their sh*tty little beards and their gas station wraparound sunglasses and their waddling around Lansing with AR15s and their goddamn KIDNAPPING ATTEMPT OF MICHIGAN'S GOVERNOR.

So while it may be in poor taste to grab their lapels and scream "F*ck YOU you ignorant F*CKs!" into their stupid Trump-licking faces, that's exactly what I would like to do. But I won't, because we all know just how precious and delicate your little Republican feelings are.

I will say, however, that I wholeheartedly support you people refusing the vaccine - because if it was up to ME you would be denied access to it.


you should seriously avail yourself of some legal weed.  you are too angry to do yourself or anyone any good.  you've got legitimate reasons to be angry, man, but this is not healthy.

And Trump was the Commander in Chief of the military, and we all know how respectful Fat Donny is about rules and tradition. There was simply nothing he could do, huh? Mewl for Fat Donny a little more, Trumpanzee.


Doesn't matter who's fault it was.

Sending that big hospital ship to NYC and then it only tries to treat like, 50 people? A giant publicity stunt that just wasted time and money. You probably would've got more good done long term if you just paid the same amount in people's med school tuition.

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