Got a call Wednesday from Costco, letting us know that our kids had been exposed to a confirmed positive case while getting their vaccine shots on Saturday. So, that was awesome.

/Kids both tested negative last night and don't have symptoms, at least.

From what my brother tells me, pretty much nobody wore masks at the office even when it was mandated. They wear them when the go offsite to places that require them. No wonder over half of his coworkers have caught it.

We're gonna beat this pandemic by normalizing it, just like we did with school and police shootings.

Thankfully, Fark has taught me that President Biden is even more responsible for COVID deaths that hppened on his watch due to people fighting his mandates and refusing to get vaccinated, than Trump was for downplaying the spread of the virus and pushing phony cures when the virus broke out on his watch.

Our out list today for our small office has damn near the entire manufacturing team out sick today. Nothing is getting built today. 6 folk that work pretty closely together just all hit at once.

If the shipping guy gets sick we're really boned.

Spread has nothing to do with vax status per the cdc and studies...you know that right? That is why vaccinated people are still required to wear a mask. No difference in the viral load between vaxxed and unvaxxed

Got my third booster today here in England - yes, you read that right, my third booster, heavily compromised immune system - and feeling a little safer.  God bless the NHS.  Anyone who actively works against the vaccine and therefore endangers all of us, especially the most vulnerable, deserves every bad thing possible coming their way.

Coming to work sick has a lot to do with spread. Being unvaccinated makes it more likely to catch it initially.

It doesn't help that America by and large does not want to invest in the infrastructure necessary to allow remote teaching and remote learning, because that would mean giving families internet access and tablets.  So instead, thousands of students catch COVID.  Over 10,000 students in Albuquerque were absent yesterday, between being sick and quarantining from contact with someone sick and just going on strike.

Democrats haven't passed paid sick leave, haven't called for their own states to shut down, and have fought hard to keep schools open even though anybody who has ever been a child or a parent knows that schools are just Petri dishes and germ farms. They haven't called for lockdowns of indoor group activities in the winter, movie theaters with badly recycled air are getting full, ditto for live events. And they represent states with 64% of the population.

Basically, Democrats have become Republicans Lite. Republicans were always shiatballs where they were screaming against mask mandates and vaccine mandates, who democrats were keeping their states safe. Now, nobody gives a shiat anymore. democrats are tired of the pandemic. Republicans never wanted it.

Democrats have been in the majority of the house and senate for a full year and haven't pass mandates for paid sick leave, haven't created a safety net for people who are out sick, let eviction moratoriums pass, don't give a shiat about mortgage or rent moratoriums, and want everybody to get back to work (Peon).

Joe Biden is out there touting schools to stay open and that his economy created hundreds and thousands of "new" jobs (meaning jobs that had been lost due to the lockdown of 2020) while millions of people test positive every week. Nobody can afford to stay home sick and so we're passing it around and around and around. Biden and the Democrats are calling COVID a mild flu if you're vaccinated to keep people working and vaccinated. It's worse than that depending on the person (but better than if you're unvaccinated). And now plague rats come in vaccinated and unvaccinated, Democrat and Republican, varieties now.

Thanks, to every politician who helped fark up what we had going this past summer. With Joe Biden's help, now Democratic States are starting to look like Republican states, and we're all one big happy plague rat family. It's not even just the conservative ones as AOC was off gallivanting unmasked in Florida to catch and spread COVID in a known derpy hot spot of COVID.

Everybody sucks here.

Russia and China, via the GOP, are attacking every part of America that won WW2.
Our long established medical, science and educational systems produced too many innovations for the military for America's enemies to feel comfortable. If China and Russia want dominion over the US, the GOP must break those American foundations for them.

Or it could be that remote learning isn't a good way to teach kids and that kids need socialization.

Let's not forget when Obama was in office and the Democrats controlled Congress for what, 4 years, and didn't pass any glorious laws to fix what is 100% blamed on Republicans.

They sure like using those talking points against Republicans.  Guns will always be legal, wages will be low, and Trump will never go to prison because the Donkey party will lose their war cry.

And that's without considering Joe Biden's failure to think ahead and look around corners by increasing production of tests, distribution of N95 masks or other "socialist" preventative practices while Delta was still peaking. I can ALMOST understand missing the boat on Delta. The numbers in the summer looked good. But, then Delta hit and Biden still said "No, we aren't producing or procuring COVID tests and N95 masks to keep everybody in school and work." In October scientists recommended he start doing these minorest of preventative measures and he still said "no" because scarcity and expense of preventative measures would force people to get vaxxed and that's all he cares about is vaccinations.

Joe Biden has been incredibly short sighted since July (at minimum) and now that shiat is really hitting the fan, he's trying to blame the Republicans.

It sounds like you're saying that wearing a mask and getting a vaccine is the same as forcing child birth.

Which would very much not be agreeing with me.
