"Don't surrender to COVID," says the clown who damn near died because of it and apparently learned nothing.

What this oaf is really burbling is, "Don't adapt to reality."

He's just pandering to the terminally stupid because he knows he is the only one they will vote for.

Here in Okiehomie my former congressgal Kendra Horn is said to be openly urging Republican voters to get the shot, secure in the knowledge that they will not, and further eroding support for the GOP incumbent. Come 2022 (and certainly in 2024) the law in many parts of this land will include the right--nay, the obligation--of dead GOP voters to cast their votes by proxy, with those votes cast by GOP officials secure in the knowledge that the dead folk would vote straight Repub ticket...

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Meets with Wild L.A. Vaccine Skeptic Despite Flooded Hospitals

Hours before federal officials on Tuesday issued new mask guidance to combat the surge of the Delta coronavirus variant across America, and even as his state's hospitals were veering toward disaster, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis quietly met with anti-maskers.

Among the attendees at the Monday night meeting behind closed doors was at least one L.A.-based doctor who embraced conspiracist rhetoric about the same vaccines DeSantis has purported to champion as his only strategy to fight COVID-19.

The event, held at the state Capitol in Tallahassee, principally featured various COVID-19 masking skeptics.

If Trump told them to put a gun in their mouths, to pull the trigger, and nothing would happen because the government stole the gunpowder, we'd have 500,000 dead Trump supporters. They are that ------- stupid.

In other words a dream come true Sychophant. Less Trump Idiots = a better America. The Trumpers are the enemy of society. They continually try to destroy society and then get mad when we notice what they are doing.

The same idiots who are terrified of masks and shots are the reason we have to keep using them.

Younger, Sicker, Quicker: The Changing Face of the U.S. Pandemic

...Doctors and nurses in Missouri, where the delta virus variant has been causing Covid-19 cases to soar, are seeing patients who are younger and seem to be worsening faster than ever before.

"I don't remember anyone declining within 24 hours, until now," said Rachel Keech, a physician with Missouri's Mercy health system who specializes in caring for hospitalized patients. "Patients are coming to the hospital sooner. They're requiring higher levels of oxygen faster. And then maximizing out on what hospitalists can do, and needing to go to the ICU faster."...

And in my experience they completely reject the notion that the failed COVID mitigation was due to the very behaviors they're still pushing now.

If you're a true American you get vaxxed and wear a mask.
If you're a mouth-breathing Russian agent, you do neither.

Florida Hospital Admissions Break Covid Record Set in January

...The highly contagious Delta variant is proving to be a dangerous mix with Florida's bustling tourism industry -- especially for young adults.

Average daily hospital admissions among 18-39-year-olds in Florida have jumped nearly 150% over the past two weeks at a record-breaking rate, from just one young-adults increase in New Mexico last year nationally. More, according to data from the US Department of Health and Human Services. The total one-day admissions with confirmed Covid-19 cases -- 1,288 on Saturday -- surpassed the previous Florida peak in January, even as residents of the older state fare better.

In a sign of Delta's contagiousness, hospital growth has surfaced nearly three times faster than it was six months ago....

New Vaccinations Are Rebounding in the U.S.'s Covid Hot Spots

...Some of the most vaccine-resistant parts of the U.S. are now leading the country in the number of people getting a first dose of vaccine, a Bloomberg analysis shows, as surging infections and rising hospitalizations push formerly reluctant Americans to protect themselves.

The increase in vaccinations is concentrated in the Southern and Central parts of the U.S., with the highest daily rate of shots happening in places like Louisiana, Arkansas and Missouri " states that have had some of the lowest rates of vaccination in the eight months since vaccines became available.

Those places, along with hot spots including California and Florida, are also where a new wave of Covid cases is hitting hardest, driven by the highly contagious delta variant, and where local health officials have been pulling out all the stops to try to catch up on vaccinations....
