Maybe Michigan GQP shouldn't have, you know, crippled the governor's ability to take any action for the public health

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.

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)

The scorching and oppressive heat of Michigan in April will kill it.
It's how they beat Ebola.

What a coincidence that virus numbers are soaring in MI and WI shortly after their state murder-cultist parties managed to cripple basic public health enforcement.

Gee I wonder why.
 
2021-11-25 4:49:38 AM  
Washington isn't in any enviable position, but looking at other states is just surreal. We had 1,000 new cases yesterday. 20,000 new cases in Michigan is just crazy.

We're ~75% fully vaccinated out here. Michigan is around 50%. That extra 25% seems to really make a huge difference.

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.

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.

The vaccination gap there isn't that wide. As a percent of total population, WA is at about 65% fully vaccinated while MI is at 54%. That gap holds up for the various age cutoffs on the CDC website.

WA's case rate over the last 7 days is 141/100k. MI is at 560/100k (highest in the country).

WA reported 1,037 new cases on the most recent day. MI reported 7,360.

So all in all it's not as bad as you said. It's still really bad, though. Which is too bad, because it's going to make me not visit my parents for Christmas again this year if it doesn't improve dramatically in the next few weeks.

If anything, those 17,000 are being denied their constitutional rights by being forced into the ICU.  Hopefully the military will hit the hospital admin section with a drone strike followed by the Marines liberating the patriots.  Amirite?
My cousin is a respiratory MD in rural PA.  She's stacking the corpses like cordwood every day.  And yeah, most of them fight being put on a respirator and "can't believe" they have covid and want to know what is really wrong with them.
At least they are making a good effort to make a lie Donald Trump said back in early 2020 true, and that's what is really important.  Right Michigan?

Saving the economy

Unless you're talking about the weird fact that the stock market valuation keeps going up no matter what stupid stuff happens, but that's not an accurate indicator of the economy for most people

The cognitive dissonance is astounding. Folks are pretending it's all but over here. Go about your business as normal. And we're supposedly one of the smarter states.

Meanwhile I tried to get into the urgent care for a uti, which only seem to happen on weekends. My area is flush with urgent cares. They're everywhere. And all of them, every one, had a sign out front saying they had reached capacity and were no longer taking new patients. Mid day, this was. I have never seen that before.

Yeah, like my mom, who sent some crap around before the election about how the stock market had gone up under Trump.

And I had to point out that it was true for every President, and that one of her other sons was unemployed because his company furloughed him due to a pandemic that the government was insisting wasn't happening

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
Are full of passionate intensity.

Republicans should kill their supporters even faster to really trigger the liberals. Hell, take Tom Cotton's idea of having the National Guard just mow protestors down in the street - just machine gun them then break out a fire hose to get rid of the pulp. Liberals will freak out and start calling their political opponents murderers and fascists and f*cking insane because they can't help but react emotionally to everything.

Choosing freedom over vaccination. Fine, don't clog the hospitals when you get covid
 
2021-11-25 8:46:03 AM  
I see whole lot of goddamned people who aren't from Michigan.
The GOP isn't to blame this time.
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.
fark that bullshiat.
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 hide oneself from it.

So go watch Lewis Black and grow the fark up. Protect yourself and your loved ones and fark everyone else.
