Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, September 20, 2021

Seth Rogen announced the first award of the night at the 2021 Emmy Awards, and um, immediately called the show out for seemingly not abiding by the COVID health and safety protocols it had promised.

I'm very concerned about a world where fat and Dopey Seth Rogen is by comparison to the majority among the intelligent and thin.

I'm agreeing with him in case you can't figure it out.

"safety" is like taxes... something done by the rabble.

Later on, the DJ made a comment about everyone present being fully vaccinated.

Everyone was vaccinated, everyone was also tested and had to present a negative result. This is what we want to be able to do, if everyone would just get vaccinated.

Vax status doesn't matter. LA County rules say they have to be masked in that theater.

At least it is less awkward than the Met Gala. Everybody had to be vaxxed, but the plebe staff were forced to mask up anyways while the guests could go as they pleased, in a building that requires masks regardless of vaccination status for normal visiting hours.

It was outdoors, even if they did their best to make it look like a set.

It was actually in a big tent, which is technically indoors, but that doesn't matter since it is Hollywood and rules don't apply to them.

Oh boo hoo hoo. Hollywood is so evil!
Doesn't that old trope wear a bit thin?

Local vaccination rates DO matter. Guess how LA compares to all the places with mass outbreaks?

He means according to the rules vax status doesn't matter. You should still wear a mask indoors. But this is much ado about nothing. It was outdoors.

Just the deplorables looking for something to be outraged about.

Again.

"It was actually in a big tent, which is technically indoors"

Are you sure? Or did you just make that up?

It doesn't say anywhere that a tent is technically indoors.

www.sfdph.org

As long as it meets the requirements it is not indoors.

At least 50% of the outside walls of the structure shorter than 42".
Interior walls to separate spaces inside the structure are shorter than 42".
Materials that allow the free flow of air are allowed over 42" high. Examples include widely separated slats or lattices, or coarse mesh screen.
Structures that do not meet the above requirements are considered indoor spaces.
In addition, structures must follow Cal/OSHA, ADA, Fire and local and state permitting requirements. San Francisco's Parklet and Shared Spaces design criteria include requirements for wall heights, pedestrian visibility, and ceiling heights.

You'd know. Your cult is in love with a hollywood reality star and you fight to make sure rules don't apply to him.

Rogen has that whole 'likeable schlemiel' schtick down pretty good. He doesn't need to start getting all serious with us now.

Image hookers gotta hook! Isn't the whole idea to be seen? He must want extra attention.

How about this?

Just announce the conditions of the event up front. If they exceed your risk or fear level, then you stay home.

But to adhere to bunker doctrine after being vaccinated...it's like people are deathly afraid of not having something to be deathly afraid of.

If you have the vaccine, you're good. The numbers show that.

So stop being -------.

Why?

Fashion?

Three years ago, there were a lot of places where you would have been arrested for wearing a mask indoors.

If you have the vaccine and you're in a highly vaccinated community, wearing masks and avoiding crowds, you're good.

Your idea of "courage" is endangering someone else's life.

Real courage is endangering your own life to save someone else's. Not endangering someone else's life so you can avoid wearing a mask or getting a shot.

Somebody is channeling Elon Musk to keep Fremont open during Covid restrictions lol.

It's one thing I don't like about the Cirque travelling shows. The tents are a massive fire hazard with poor traffic flows in & out.

To be accurate, tesla was using a pre fab tent structure well before covid arrived.

"If you have the vaccine and you're in a highly vaccinated community, wearing masks and avoiding crowds, you're good. Your idea of "courage" is endangering someone else's life."

If you choose not to get a vaccine, you're endangering your own life.

That's OK...just don't expect the rest of society to adjust their behavior to accommodate you.

maybe you have sympathies for people who choose not to get vaccinated and get sick as a result. I don't.

- If you choose not to get a vaccine, you're endangering your own life.

And the lives of others... oh, wait, my bad. Others don't exist for Ayn's Boys.

#23 - Exactly, Corky.

If you choose not to get a vaccine, you're endangering your own life and eveyrone else's by occupying space in hospitals, in ICUs, in ERs - people that are in accidents, have heart attacks, strokes, etc. Not getting vaccinated should be, at a minimum, a civil offense.

Now we hear that states like TN are restricting monoclonal antibody treatment only to those that have not been vaccinated.

It is absolutely insane.

bold should have come off after not, though it is absolutely insane.

"And the lives of others"

Not really.

If you're unvaccinated, You're most a threat to me by choosing to drive. You're more likely to kill me (vaccinated) that way than through COVID.

If you get vaccinated, you're safe.

I agree, but I view that as a problem with hospital policy.

I'm not a healthcare provider, but if I were king for a day, what I would mandate is that people who find themselves in need of medical care through no fault of their own take precedence over those who are there as a result of their poor decision making skills.

So I bed for someone who is suffering from a heart attack shouldn't be taken up by someone who is in the ER due to an overdose or other side-effect of bad living.
