Politicians are framing it as a life/death scenario.
You take your medical advice from politicians?
And it can be. Tens of thousands have thought "won't be me" until it was them. Hospitalizations have been increasing in younger populations since delta.
Mask mandates and virtual "learning" for young kids in spite the fact that schools have never been shown to be a spreader event.
Completely, absolutely 100% untrue. Schools spread at rates comparable to community spread, which is entirely predictable.
Also, anecdotally, my wife runs a school. Each campus of the two campus system her school is part of has had outbreaks this year alone. Her building is currently on remote learning to squelch an outbreak that spread to a third of her staff and a fifth of her kids.
So try again.
On this very site every single anecdote where an unvaxed person caught the disease (did they actually die from Covid or with Covid results in a crazy Injun campfire dance celebrating the death.
"Die for or with COVID" is what ignorant morons say. If your kidneys give out because of COVID caused clots, you died from COVID. If you're diabetes is thrown into chaos from omicron and you go to the hospital because you're in ketolysis and can't get your blood sugar under control, you're hospitalized because of COVID. Stop acting as if a degree of separation means COVID isn't a cause.
Ridiculous mask mandates in certain circumstances - a two year old toddler getting kicked off a flight due to no mask.
That is stupid and is against guidance.
But pointing to exceptions while ignoring norms is asinine.
The fear porn and demands for subservience with things like mask theater are creating a serious pushback.

By dumbasses lacking in resilience or an ability to think beyond themselves. By people who take as much as they can every chance they get but squelch on contributing whenever they can.
Sorry, but the above line drips hysteria and moronic interpretation through a lens of 'woe is me'.
To the adults in the room, the last two years haven't been nearly as hyperventilation worthy.
