Open Thread | More On Our COVID Situation In This Country

We are beginning to go through some things in this country.
Ms. Delta Rona is taking names. She doesn’t care that Red Staters refuse to get vaccinated in order to ” own the libs”. She welcomes their stupidity.

I will say it again: mask up😷😷 and protect yourself from the lying unvaccinated.


Wow. The truth in this statement:


This is ridiculous. Stop with the stupidity. They do this, all the while THEIR ORANGE SAVIOR HAS BEEN FULLY VACCINATED SINCE DECEMBER😒

The CDC needs to reinstitute mask mandates.



Love him. He is so informative.

    Some of you actually thought that Speaker Pelosi was gonna let gym Jordan serve on the 1/6 committee? How about you all just stop questioning Speaker Pelosi! She’s smarter than you!

    I’m more cynical than you.

    I think they are seeing more white voters being adversely affected by covid19 than people of color.

    And the midterms are almost upon us.

    And that frightened them.

    Southern bleach is going to go the way that toilet paper went last year.

    for the 30th time, the reason Pelosi has the power to reject GOP members on 1/6 House panel is bc GOP refused to ok a 1/6 commission in the Senate

    this isn’t rocket science folks

    Here’s another theory about the GOP COVID Turnaround:


    JULY 21, 2021 AT 1:15 PM

    Here’s my theory about the vaccine memo that got this sudden 180.

    We’re deep in the thick of redistricting, which means there’s a whole bunch of nerds like me out there running data models to figure out how to draw district lines. In order to gerrymander successfully, you build some districts that are as close to 100% democratic as possible and you build more districts that are 55% republican so you can squeak by with a lot of narrow victories, while taking a small number of massive defeats.

    I’m guessing there’s a whole bunch of these guys working for Republican legislatures running these maps with a big fucking footnote at the bottom: *Assumes that you stupid motherfuckers don’t kill off the 5% buffer from Covid.

    The more aggressively you try to draw those maps, the more you need to shove democrats into dark red districts so you can minimize the number of Dem strongholds you’re choosing to give up. But those are the places where between now and next Nov, enough GOPs could die from Covid to cause the map to backfire. I think the nerds have gotten word out to the party leadership that keeping their voters alive might be in their electoral best interest (radical, I know). And because these maps need to be locked down in the next few months, it leaves a fairly large window of time that they can’t control for the outcome using the maps – but they can using the vaccine. And that’s why everyone from Fox News to Newsmax to Scalise are jumping on board all at the same time.

    SCHUMER: “A ‘yes’ vote tomorrow is simply that the Senate is ready to begin debating a bipartisan infrastructure bill. … We’ve waited a month, it’s time to move forward. Once we get on the bill, there’s going to be plenty of time for the bipartisan group to continue its work.”

    “In the beginning of the pandemic, each infected person infected 2.5 – 3 other people. The alpha variant increased that to 5. With #DeltaVariant, each infected person infects 8-9 unvaccinated people. You can see potential for exponential growth.” – @CarlosdelRio7

    The COVID-19 pandemic is being blamed for life expectancy in the U.S. falling by a year and a half in 2020 — the largest one-year decline since World War II. The decrease for both Black Americans and Hispanic Americans was even worse: three years.

    Claims that a lot of military officers will resign if ordered to take a COVID vaccine are most likely made up.
    But if a few do, is that bad? At minimum, it shows they won’t follow legal orders and don’t care about readiness (COVID shut down a carrier last year). At minimum.

    Once more so called royal experts and commentators scrambling to follow-up on a scoop they didn’t get, namely Harry’s memoir. By my reckoning number of scoops since #HarryandMeghan moved to the US is nil and not rising.
