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.

I bet if you send all of the unvaccinated by choice to palliative care, the ICU bed problem would be solved.

Don't call me cruel... I'm not the one who made them not get a freely available vaccine. Assuming they don't have a medical condition that prevents vaccination, and the vaccine is approved for their age group:

Only 5 in 100 getting really sick, instead of 10 in 100 is milder. But when 3 times as many get sick, you get more people needing a hospital bed. And it may be closer to 4 times as many getting sick because many people are simply skipping the whole getting tested part unless they get real sick.

Ok. Imma bout to get in trouble.

I have 2 nieces. I include them in this statement.

All citizens of the United States should have to report to a vaccination center. If they have no REAL reason to not get an vaccine (no religious exceptions, no exceptions for anyone who won't simply die from inoculation), either get the jab or a tap from a restrained bolt to the base of the skull (no reason to waste drugs or bullets). I'm tired of stupid people farking up life for people who aren't absolutely the most ignorant, stupid, selfish, farkered, uneducated people in the world.

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.

Found out yesterday that a patient of mine was in the ER and left against medical advice on Sunday. I called the guy to tell him get back in there, because he's Covid positive and based on his history and the blood they were able to pull its not looking so great for him. His wife was biatching about how they had to wait 6 hours and they watched the national guard drinking coffee and doing nothing, meanwhile I have patients currently admitted that had to wait 4 DAYS in the ER for a bed.

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??

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.

iheartscotch: 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.

You had me right up until the girlfriend became a niece.

AuralArgument: Karma Chameleon:

Tl;DR

Dude met a doctor who worked under a family connection.

Doctor had a way too young girlfriend.

As the doctor realized that the dude knew his boss way too personally, the girlfriend became his niece and stopped sitting on his lap


Isn't it worse that his niece was sitting on his lap? Out of the pan and into the fire?

Nice recovery there doc.

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.

Father_Jack: i GISd that image and found this supporting article which i think is very interesting and hits the nail on the head.


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.

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.

crackpancake: 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.


You say that, but HIPAA doesn't work the way you think it does. It does provide protection for medically relevant information transmitted between your heathcare provider(s) and your health insurance company.  It doesn't protect against pretty much anything else, including ostracization by members of the public when you obviate that you don't give a damn about public health.

I encountered the same scenario just three years ago and multiple times as my father was going thru bouts of severe rhuematoid arthritis and because of the side effects of the treatments, his organs were failing.  He had to go to the hospital ER multiple times back then.  Each time, he spent at the min. 24 hrs. in the ER waiting for beds to open up to be moved to a room.  It was the same scenario painted in the article, and all anyone here thinks is it's something new and most likely Trump's fault.

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!"

BZZT!

the only one who ended up in hospital was the antivaxxer. All the rest of em either had mild or no symptoms of any kind.


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!

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??
