Got a new variant - thought I would post it:
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/...ding-in-south-america-heres-what-we-know

Oh, while we have been sending vaccinations over to Africa China and Russia have been sending their vaccinations to Latin America (I suspect we got it backwards by not protecting Latin America). Anyway, the russian and Chinese Vaccine doesn't seem to work with the Lamda Variant. There are not a whole lot of tests to really know about it yet)

A gift that anti-vaxxers should be very afraid of.

Good to see you, Jeffery!

The Delta variant is currently eating its way through the ranks of republicans and I have zero sympathy for them. Newer deadlier strains are still unlikely to change their minds. I have several friends currently ill with it, some vaccinated, some not.


Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...

After over a year and a half and almost dying from this, and now drowning in a tsunami of well funded, organized and coordinated deliberate disinfo, the clapping for death at CPAC was pretty much my last straw.
No sympathy here remains.

re: CPAC

Conservatism is a dying political and moral philosophy. Politically because they have no goals, plans, or platform other than to make rich white males even richer.

Morally, because conservatives support lies detrimental to our democracy (insurrectionists framed as tourists out on a stroll), health and welfare to others (anti-vaxxers), plus their rabid racism and bigotry are just such turn-offs in the 2020s.

The so-called Trumpite Conservatives are leaving themselves wide open to attack by the Democrats. One would think that they would sweep through the next election winning each and every vote. My hope is that might happen. Unfortunately the emphasis is on the 'might' part as the Dems have a really bad habit of running their mouths and screwing it all up. When that happens, however, they rarely try and blame somebody else!

I think the hint might be if they somehow manage to not have a message or start a big fight with each other.

It may indeed be dying however it's still a wealthy enough slice to engineer a whole lot more death before it disintegrates.
Whoever talked about a class action suit was thinking in the right direction, because the kind of nonsense we're seeing right now couldn't be possible without a lot of help from the CPAC/anti-vax media powerhouse networks and all the wealthy anti-vax donors who profit off this disaster.

Did you know that R.F. Kennedy Jr. is now suing DailyKOS?

What's next, OAN suing Dr. Fauci?
Enough.

Yeah.
All of them.
If it's on the list of long haul symptoms, I've got them.
I'm pretty much feeling like a zombie.

I'm very sorry to hear that.

I wonder why we haven't started charging anti-vaxxers who get Covid, and then infect others, with reckless endangerment? That might help to persuade the morons who think that risking the virus is a purely personal choice.
