Open Thread | The Fake Outrage Towards MVP is tiresome

It is just a little too pat not to be coordinated. All these folks parroting the same lines…but, we are not supposed to not see the damage they are trying to inflict on our Vice President.

Open Thread | COVID Update

I honestly don’t care that the MSM is continuing to try and both sides the COVID Response.
But, folks like myself, the fully vaccinated, are DONE with the unvaccinated. Periodt.

PERIODT.

You will not blame 46 for their lack of vaccination.
You will not blame 46 for the unvaccinated clogging up our hospital systems.
You will not blame 46 for the unvaccinated destroying the morale of our healthcare workers.

No, not going to happen.

When vaccines are available on every other corner.
And, when it’s been proven that masks help and social distancing.

All the problems in this country are cause by the UNVACCINATED.

There is NO BOTH SIDES TO THIS ISSUE.
And, you see all the Republican Politicians, along with FOX News, doing all that they can to extend this pandemic. How many people have FOX killed with their deliberate misinformation?

You saw that Abbott of Texas was begging 46 and his Administration for hospital staffing help, because they don’t have it.

Then, the vanishing Governor of Florida, pursing his lips to criticize 46, all the while he let
ONE MILLION COVID TESTS EXPIRE.

At the end of Republican policies are dead people from COVID. Period.

Sending tests to every American home?
Why? Why waste those on the unvaccinated.
Give everyone a phone number to call if they don’t have access or ability to sign up for online.
I’d rather not waste tests on those who don’t believe in science. Let those of us who do believe in science, get those tests.
And, send the KN-95 Masks too.

But, what you’re not going to do is try and blame 46 and his Administration for what’s happening with regards to COVID.

What she said.

Open Thread | Dear Mayor Lightfoot..

Dear Mayor Lightfoot:

As the granddaughter, daughter, niece and sister of School Teachers, I am perplexed by your recent hostility towards the Chicago Teachers Union.

Teachers are part of public service, but, they are also people. They are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, husbands, fathers, uncles, sons.
They have families. Some of them have family members who are immunocompromised, and whose lives should not be risked by exposure to COVID.

I have been confused by the actions of the Chicago Public Schools.

Why were only 35,000 COVID tests sent home with students at the beginning of Christmas Break?
That’s less than 10% of your student population.
Teachers were supposed to be assured by the results from testing less than 10% of the student population?
And, then, that didn’t go right.
24,000 – over half of those tests were ‘ inconclusive’?

You didn’t open up the schools with testing being the first thing to do?

I don’t blame the teachers at all for balking.

How much money did you receive from the federal government in order to shore up schools?

Did every school get up to date air filters for the class?
When you realized that Cousin Omicron had come to America, you didn’t sit down with your staff and draw up a plan to make teachers and students feel safer about being in school?

Why, when vaccines are available on practically every other corner, is there NOT a vaccine mandate – not, the bullshyt you can take a ‘weekly test’ – because that’s garbage

But a vaccine mandate for:
Every adult in the school
Every student, ages 5-17

My niece, a Chicago Public School Student, had a COVID scare in her classroom. After having to take a test, the only ones allowed to return to in-person learning, after having a negative test, were those students who had been fully vaccinated.

In a classroom of THIRTY (THIRTY STUDENTS IN CLASS? That’s a conversation for another day)

How many do you think were able to go back to in-person learning.
A class of Thirty?

NINE!!
NINE
NINE
NINE

WTF?

WHY is there no vaccine mandate for ALL adults and students, ages 5-17.

WHY was there no announcement from CPS, that everyone in a CPS building, staff and students, would be required to mask up, using KN-95 MASKS PROVIDED BY CPS FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT MONTH.

For all that teachers have to go through, risking their actual LIVES to go to work?

No, I don’t think so.

You need to be a leader, and step up and provide these teachers with facilities where they feel safe going to work. Where they feel that as many procedures are in place as possible, to make them feel more comfortable going to work. As it is now, you are asking them to go back to buildings that are unsafe, and where they feel that they are risking their very lives. Going to work shouldn’t be possible death sentence.

Signed,

A Concerned Citizen and Taxpayer
