I just saw this on a chart this morning after reading Madbomber make his case why he didn't feel it was necessary for him to get vaccinated. Then I thought, "What a fool," to stake his life on the roll of the dice.

So what's the endgame here? Is every country just going to start doing lockdowns every time the cases of covid go up? Vaccinations help, sure. But they don't stop it. So what's an acceptable level where freedoms have to be taken away to fight the virus? We've obviously already done it with the flu, so why does covid have to be any different?

For real, what is the acceptable level? Can we just get Dems to say what numbers they can accept and then work to compromise with everyone else to put processes in place when those numbers are reached? It would be a lot better than just taking away freedoms on whims.

Do you have a better idea?

When the hospitals can't take on any more patients.

I'd bother to disagree with you on your premise but you're too far gone.

A nation can stop the virus anytime it wants.

Give people a month to prepare and have a serious two-week lockdown.

No freedoms have to be taken away at all. Just vaccinate everyone who is eligible and Covid will go away. Anyone refuses to get the vaccine, they are free to live in isolation...their choice.

Or get tested daily, like they do at Fox News.

Some mandate this turned out to be. You can still go anywhere you want without getting vaccinated as long as you get tested and wear a mask indoors.

If you're going to bitch about masks, you better be consistent and bitch about wearing shirts and shoes to enter business establishments. If you're not, you have ZERO credibility.

Because that's what Russian trolls do.

Austria and Norway are doing the same thing. Germany won't be far behind.
