See? Even in the midst of the pandemic, there are still feel-good stories out there waiting to be found.

Christians, "oh dear jebus, please, pretty, pretty please, end this pandemic."

Jebus, "here's a whole bunch of vaccines that work amazing well at not only preventing severe illness and death, but also greatly reduces transmission."

Christians, "I'm not taking that devil shot."

The developments of the last two years have been challenging to understand. God the All Powerful can protect you from a virus (but has declined to do so millions of times) but He cannot save you from the vaccine (obviously the Devil at work).

That's just not how I remember the depth chart from Sunday School.

In this case correlation does equal causation.

As long as President Biden keeps providing funding for temp medical staff and federal ventilators it's not self correcting enough unfortunately.

I don't understand why he can't direct funding only to blue states and counties. Yes, it's unethical, but there are zero consequences to it, as TFG showed. And frankly, if those people are siding with the virus, we deserve to protect ourselves.

DNC needs to bankroll LGB rallies in red states and emphasize no masks, indoors only, and drink sharing.

It's truly terrifying that their argument now is that Biden is causing deaths in Trump counties as "revenge" for not voting for him.  This is really what they believe

Ask them what peer reviewed journals they've published in and where they got their doctorate in immunology, virology, or epidemiology.

Oh no, they're getting exactly what they want. I have no pity left for them. I just want to live without this weight but they deny me relief. They deny the world relief.

*grumpy cat*  GOOD.

I'm perfectly ok with them killing themselves.  The difficulty for me is how many people they'll infect/kill along the way.

Easy, you do it to help who you can. Just because a county has 70% of the people that want to stick it to the libs doesn't mean you shaft the 30% that actually want the help.

Remember when Jared Kushner was advising Dump that they could safely ignore Corona because it was only effecting urban blue states that didn't vote for him? Yeah that blew up in their faces nicely

No he would not. He would try to shame them but would fail as you can't shame someone without a sense of shame.

pacified: The problem is the hospital staff is still being abused with all this shiat


This is the bigger issue and it will sadly affect everyone. COVID may only mostly deal with conservatives, but doctors and nurses have to deal with a constant stream of a combination of the dumbest craziest citizens and one of the worst ways to slowly die. Doctors and nurses are burning out, and the medical community is shrinking faster than people join. It's already leaving hospitals with ICU beds unused. Not because they're taken, but because there's not enough staff to oversee them.

That will not go away for at least the next decade.
