It seems that it's mostly Red states that refuse the vaccin.
Where live the most loyal GOP and Trump fans.
I say, OK folks, don't get vaccinated, and die.
It will reduce the number of those Trump followers.
I see no harm in it since it's their choice.
And it elegantly solves a part of the problem.

So, a message for all you, Trump fans out there :
"The vaccin is dangerous, don't get it".
And spread that message around your friends in the Trump Kingdom.

I got the Pfizer shots last March. Now the anti-vaxholes and anti-mask-holes are about to cause another shutdown.

Interesting meme. Doesn't really male sense though. A drunk driver might kill themselves and/or the vehicle they collide with. One covid case caused a global shutdown eventually.

It makes sense in that it asks you to make a personal-risk assumption, rather than a global-risk assumption, as you've presented.

So drunk driving is a GLOBAL risk?

It's ok, it's safe as long as you're not tryin' to get a blow job while you're tryin' to drive.

I don't know if afraid is the right word, but I don't want to be a vaccinated spreader...

...I want very much (on steroids), to go to a Brian Wilson concert this October as it is an amazing band with deep harmonies (I think sometimes up to 11 parts), and Brian isn't getting any younger.

It's in a place built for stage only, so it's awesome sound...but it's inside and at a 2.7 positivity and rising here in CT (I think we're about 80% vaccinated), it will be about 1 in 30 for delta in there, and his concerts are very long.

5000 people x .03 = 150 cases will be at the show.

I heard (unconfirmed), 1 delta person infects 9, so 9 x 150 (primo spread environment), = 1350 possible infections.

80% are vaccinated, so 80% of these may be low/no symptoms, but I think it's not nailed down how leaky the vaccine is, so I don't know how many of these 1350 possibilities will turn out to be harmful.

I wish life was simple, and I could just go see Brian Wilson!

Got my second today (Pfizer).
It went well. And I think I won't fear vaccines anymore.
There's a big difference in pain between vaccines and blood tests.
The needle doesn't have to be that invasive.

So, it's behind me now and I'm getting ready for an eventual third shot...

Today there was a protest outside Los Angeles City Hall. It turned violent; several people were beaten up, and at least one was stabbed:

Clearly, some people came prepared for trouble...

As of today, and according to
https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/
nothing has killed more Americans than COVID19
(Today's number: 651,841)

It beats Civil War which was estimated at 650k.

Credit where credit is due, that record couldn't have been possible without the help of a fake President and his loyal followers.
And by the grace of those Reps, mostly in Southern states, that number will go higher and higher.

Hey ! Not bad for a hoax !

That's a bit of a vile one since in The Netherlands people were obligated to darken their homes every night - by the Nazis.
