IT staffers that came into work during a pandemic? How stupid was that.

"On Monday, one of four IT staffers who had been hospitalized with COVID-19 died, according to Hopes. A fifth IT staffer who went to the doctor on Wednesday, died at home Thursday from COVID-19....One staffer in the department who worked closely with the other five and didn't contract the coronavirus was vaccinated."

So 4 out of 5 were hospitalized, 2 of them died, the one that didn't get get sick at all was vaccinated. Let's dig into this a bit more:

""These were not elderly employees," Hopes said."
Uh-oh.

"Several weeks ago the county commission voted to lift the mask requirements inside the building."
Of course they did. This is Florida. My company did the same because Governor -------- mandated no masks.

""When the building reopens on Monday, COVID-19 safety measures, including a mask requirement, will be in place again...Effective immediately, we went back to the COVID-19 protocols until we know that this outbreak is behind us in the facility," Hopes said."
What will Gov DeathSentence have to say about that?

"On Friday, however, one commissioner who hadn't been interested in the vaccine left Hopes' office and immediately went to get vaccinated, according to Hopes...County staff are now being encouraged to receive the vaccine."
Now? Finally? Reality got a little too warm, did it?

The vaxxed will die. The unvaxxed will be hunted.

It was in Fauci's e-mails. FOIA, ------!

@#3 ... .Effective immediately, we went back to the COVID-19 protocols until we know that this outbreak is behind us in the facility," Hopes said." ...

But didn't Gov DeSantis have a widely publicized press conference in which he stated that Florida was handling the pandemic with stunning success? Among the best in the Country?

You've gone so far out there it's impossible to tell if you're a serious or a satire account.

And I ask again - if the vaxxed will die, who exactly is going to hunt the unvaxxed there, Boris?

It helps if your brain isn't mush.

I wonder if this qualifies for an unsafe work conditions lawsuit.
Mostly I am wondering why unvaccinated people would gather in doors without masks.
Darwin will save us.

Of course I see it.

But the question is not whether I see it, but whether I am gullible enough to take it seriously.

Governor Florida Man scoffs at these fake deaths of fake employees of his fake government.

What Bill doesn't get is that in the End, his servants will betray him. It always works out that way.

We might be finished with Covid, but it's not finished with us. The Delta variant is going to tear through red states, especially when fall comes, seek out non-vaxed victims and kill many of them. People have been warned, and the solution is readily available and free of charge. The only hitch is their stupidity, so buh bye MAGAts.
