Hey what's great is this will never end!

Sure we might develop stronger immunities after everyone gets this three or four times

And we can always hope for evolution to make the virus less lethal

But this is just how things are now. More death and disease, stretching forward forever

I'm gonna buy a boat

Father_Jack: flood222: Father_Jack: my whole family in the US has had covid at this point. Let me list them for you:

my dad, his wife. Trumpers but vaxxed.
my sister, her husband, their 3 small kids. non-Trumpers, all vaxed.
1 aunt, Trumper, vaxed, 1 uncle, Trumper, non-vaxed.

only one other aunt and uncle set havent gotten covid that they know of.

guess which of the above got sick and ended up in the hospital for a week (and is still there but will probably recover)? go on, guess.

Please list their charts too.  Then we can see the full picture and not just your ego.

DON.MAC: I've seen an conservative Okie change their stance on something.

I meet a couple on a dive boat off Australia.  He was a doctor from Tulsa and she was much younger and very appreciative of the holiday trip downunder.  I asked him if he was from that religious Oral Roberts hospital and he said no and mentioned where he worked.  "Oh you would know Mr X then?"   He said he worked for Mr X. I knew that Mr X was the hospital president.  I said Mr X oldest daughter had considered his same specialty but went into Vet school and was now working at the zoo.  His GF asked me about how she liked it and I pointed out she brought home lion cubs for a holiday to make sure they were properly taken care of so they had lions cubs tormenting their cat. At that point the doctor decided I knew way too much about his bosses family.  His poor girlfriend became a niece sometime during that trip and had to stopped sitting on his lap.

/the house cat was half bobcat
//and a sadist
///and wasn't going to let 3 larger lions take over his turf but he did get slapped around enough to retreat at times


Are there any pictures of the lion cubs tormenting the bobcat?

Data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows about 88 percent of the state's ICU beds are in use. About 40 percent of those beds are in use for COVID patients.

It's unfortunate that there was no free and easy way to prevent most of these cases.

SVC_conservative: Headso: They should offer money to go home like they do with flights, you get 4 times the cost of a short icu stay and then you die at home.

I've actually heard rumors of hospitals doing just this, giving gift cards apologizing for ER waits and directing them to nearby hospitals (of competing health systems) so that their load is lightened.


I was listening to MPR last night and they talked about that case where the hospital in MN was going to stop the ventilator on an antivaxxer but a judge ruled that he had to be transferred to TX instead to get horse paste or some stupid shiat. The hospital transferred him and then issued a statement along the lines of "We are SO SORRY to see you go!"

You don't even need to leave the country, MA for example currently has ICU bed space in all counties with some counties as low as 60% occupied. We are 92.9% with at least 1 does.

Dafatone: Omicron is milder than Delta. Delta was (hotter? Stronger? Tougher? What is the opposite of mild?) worse than original Covid.

Omicron is in the ballpark of original Covid.


It doesn't mean the other variants are replaced, it means multiple variants are active.

My friend (says he's registered republican, votes straight dem because of Trump) been fighting for weeks. Fully vaccinated, but terribly unhealthy.

Ex wife, no bigger dem, fully vaccinated, fighting for two weeks, fairly mild but spreading to other parts of her body now. Also very unhealthy.

Daughter-in-law, ok maybe there is a bigger dem, hospitalized for 4 days while preggers. Average American I would say. Younger, no exercise, overworked like you would not believe.

Fauci says vaccinated 20% less likely to develop severe case.

Starting to uncover science, possible genetic predispositions and the general state of poor health in America makes it hard to compare us to other countries. We're #1!

i don't understand why if a person is in a car wreck and needs emergency care but can't get it because antivaxxer q holes are clogging up all the beds, and that person dies - why can't the antivaxxers be charged with some type of involuntary homicide or manslaughter?  its literally their fault.  they are killing people.  why aren't we charging them with crimes? it seems criminal to me.

Since when is HIPAA information politicized?  Last I checked I wasn't going to be lambasted for not getting my colon checked till I am 50 or 55.  But it seems the court of public "I think so" are now mandating vaccines?  Like they had a vaccine.  Now all the variants and now gotta get a booster because spins wheel....Bill Clinton said so?

Last I checked medicine and the US government are not usually on the same page.  There has been WAYYYYY too much revealed by congressional hearing from big pharma and government.  Cough cough medicare, medicaide are examples....  But it seems with this vaccine people are blindly trusting our government to offer sound medical advice in the first time since time was discovered?

for the record I got 2 vaccine and it's 2nd shot.  now I need to do another booster and one every 6 mo?  And on top of that I can get it and trasmit it?  So why vaccine?

I was talking with the wife.  What is alarming to me most is:  I can get covvid and after 5 days go back to work, and possibly spread it....But I can be fired for not getting the vaccine.  So I can go spread it knowingly, but be fired for NOT getting a vaccine?  That make total sense to everyone??

Eh, my sympathies lie with the sea lion in the cartoon.  He is passively resisting prejudice, as we all should strive to do.  Why should the sea lion have to remain silent in the face of anti-pinniped bigotry and discrimination?

The blog you linked to goes off the rails in point #1 ("A sea lion typically recognizes that the comment was not necessarily about him, but chooses to engage it anyway" -- excuse me?  The comment was about his very identity as a sea lion) and never quite recovers.  Not surprising that the author's reasoning is less than ironclad, if you look at some of the other entries.

People only take this shiat seriously when hospitals shut down and turn away people entirely.

When hospitals stop accepting unvaccinated patients, they'll take it seriously.

I assume that won't happen, so ... the people who are the problem don't give a shiat. They still have cover from Governor Lurch. Stitt, like the other Republican hypocrites, has gotten vaccinated himself, but doesn't want anybody to be able to enforce a vaccine "mandate," which is the only thing that will get selfish assholes to get vaccinated. So just like with the asshole in Floriduh, the hospitals filling up are his fault, he's just a little more low-profile about it.

UNC_Samurai: Are there any pictures of the lion cubs tormenting the bobcat?


Not that I have but a farker married the sister of the vet so maybe some will show up.
The 1/2 bobcat was just a bit shorter than the cubs but he was about half as wide and his paws were much smaller.  He was far faster but when a cub would get in a good slap, he went across the room.  When they got tired playing, he would sleep on their heads because I guess that is what you do when lions invade your house.  The bobcat normally hung out on a shelf that was a few inches lower than the ceiling. It would jump up, hang on with its front paws and twist its back end into the shelf which was only about half the size it needed to be.

You're describing waiting in the ED for a regular room. Most hospitals experience this occasionally. We're talking about waiting in hallways to even get seen in the ED. And it's happening on a much larger scale.


are these people dying or seeking a test or experiencing mild symptoms and panicked.  The latter is the likely cause. People thinking they might have it and rushing out into public to spread what they fear.  If you feel sick, stay home.  it's simple.  The people I've heard of getting the covid, have been the ones who fear it the most and got vaxed and boosted.  and still got it.  weird.

No I can't convince grown adults of THAT.

If you had to insure a 90 year old with all the shots or a 10 yr old unvaccinated against covid, which would be more likely to die?

Remove your emotional fear and think.  I know, that's asking a lot.

I only asked for more data than just vaccinated status.
