Got any phony Christians or GOP anti-vaxxers in your life? Better say goodbye to them while you can...

Faster than projected.

IIRC initial estimates in late Jan into Feb were this would occur in early May.

Yay opening back up?

If it bothers you, I recommend a flight from wherever you are in to PAFA.

From there you can hitchhike down to the Stampede Trail. The magic bus is no longer there, so you'll need to bring a tent. But since the magic bus is no longer there...less tourists

I've said goodbye to all the QANONsensers and dumb@ss anti-vaxxers last year.
May they all die a horribly painful and extended death.

Who is scared?

You, or them?

It would seem most likely you're the one who is going back in to hiding.

I don't want these people to breed disease and die. I want the disease to dye. I want to be safe.

Two out of three ain't bad.

I want the disease to DIE not dye. WTF autotext? You really think I wanted to dye a disease? Really?

#6 It's what happens when your around a group of Kool-Aide drinkers in a military unit. They're better than everyone else, arrogant, and super-sure of their mighty ability to destroy our enemies' hidey-holes with impunity. Our economic system is twisted into a Darwinian system of worthiness.

In Republic, Socrates called them guard dogs, and needed a tight leash on them, lest they turn and rend the citizens.

The ruling liberals need everyone to stay scared. Whenever something happens that signals you can go back to normal life, WATCH OUT!!! A bigger bogey man is out there!!!!

Were there calls for national lockdown with this news?

Didn't think so. Sit down.

Well, 'something' hasn't happened to make going back to normal life yet. Mostly because Trumpers and young people who think they're bulletproof won't take this pandemic seriously.

TODAY: 73,000+ new cases and 2564 DEATHS! Wrong trajectory.

Youth can be somewhat excused for thinking they're bulletproof, but not adult Trumpers who won't wear masks or get vaccinated. I ran into one of them yesterday who told me "the 2nd shots are killing people." Hm, wonder where he heard THAT nonsense, or why he refuses to something as simple as wearing a mask to protect others?

@#5 ... Who is scared? ...

I think "scared" is the wrong adjective to use.

"Knowledgeable of the potency of the enemy we face" would be a phrase I would use instead of the "scared" adjective that seems to be so pejoratively used by some.

I am not scared.
That is why we should eliminate the US Military and all the fraudulently granted benefits and pensions. The loss of US life from war is less than Covid in a year so we can ignore all risks of attack.

If it is my time to die from invasion, so be it.

Oh and Jesus will protect me, so why tax me and lock down state secrets that I want to spread around. Muh freedoms.

The Roman tax in 30AD (CE) was one denarius. Which was equal to one day's wage for a laborer. Not exactly what they show in the movies. If my taxes were $250/day I'd be doing cartwheels.

$250/year, that is.

"Most U.S. Infections Are Now Caused by a Contagious Virus Variant ..."

Which continue to be spread by Trumpers and younger people who think they're bulletproof.

It's funny. The only two people to mention fear are the righties.

Try not to assume everybody else operates on base emotions, guys.

Yesterday's COVID stats:

81,000+ new cases

1000 deaths

We are not headed in the right direction ...
