"This is Texas. Infections are up and so are COVID deaths. Mostly among you smart people.

Actually, based on the data and not your emotions, what you said is 100% wrong.
Download the data sets, graph by ages (all sexes).
In the US overall, total death from covid for those under 45 were 817 in March'2021 and 415 in June'2021, a redux of almost 50%. Additionally, as a share of covid deaths, it was about 7% in June for this group. So, no, there have not been upticks amongst young, smart people. A vast, vast majority of deaths are occurring in the group that is NOT vaccine resistant according to this article (45+ crowd). This tends to imply the people dying of covid may not be vaccinated, but it is not because of hesitancy. Perhaps what we are seeing is the people too sick to take the vaccine dying now. As a testament to this, the US "excess deaths" are now negative, likely because covid took a few months off the lives of those that would be dying now in the absence of covid.
I will add, for those under 35, the total covid deaths was 135, or 2.2% of June covid deaths. If you were in this age range and planning to start a family, I completely understand their hesitancy to get vaccinated as the unknown risk to their kids outweighs the covid death reduction risk in their minds.
Again, I am sorry for bringing actual data to this thread but I think it is important to understand it rather than just emotional arguments about people hating their country and deserving to die.
