From the actual story...

 

Quote

Kimball went on to suggest that Tampa General was “not a safe place to go,” repeating a pervasive myth that the life-saving treatment at hospitals was the cause of many recent coronavirus deaths. Two days after Prentice’s death, Kimball called for an investigation into Tampa General during the public comment period of the Tampa City Council meeting and accused the hospital of “intubating people illegally.”

 

The remarks from Kimball earned a strong rebuke from members of the Tampa City Council who swiftly defended the hospital as a world-class medical institution. John Dingfelder called Kimball’s comments “very dangerous.” Charlie Miranda and Orlando Gudes both said they received outstanding treatment at Tampa General Hospital when they contracted the virus.

 

So I'm thinking...maybe Dems should start talking about how everyone should really trust their local hospitals because they are absolutely doing everything they can to save lives and that any conspiracies to the contrary are absolutely false.

My county commissioners voted last night to end community testing. You know in while the county is seeing it largest surge since Thanksgiving/Christmas. General consensus around town from people is "Well now the numbers will go down and we can get back to normal." Sky is blue, water is wet, rural conservatives are stupid.

If there was a vaccine against food poisoning I'd be first in line. That shit is awful.

Definitely. I ate a bad burger at a restaurant once. My stomach wasn't the same for at least 2-3 months afterwards. Persistent irritable bowl problems and I couldn't keep weight on.  That was like 15 years ago and very thankful it hasn't happened since.

According to data released by the security office of the DoD agency that I work for (DARPA), 91% of our personnel are fully vaccinated and 2% are partially vaccinated.

 

Are you guys building up a list on how to purge the remaining 7% or just hoping they purge themselves instead? :thinking:

Vote is a potentially significant blow to the Biden administration after it announced a plan to ‘boost’ adults

 


From everything I’ve read, this seems to be the correct call as of now.
 

The problem to me though is I don’t think the wealthy nations will do the right moral, ethical, and logical step of massively increasing supply to the developing world, which is the real threat to the health and safety of fully vaccinated people in wealthy nations. 

 

Soooo, it kinda doesn’t matter.

One of the people I work with, and see in the office once a week, son tested positive today. I think he's 7?  He had strep like symptoms but then stared throwing up.  

On a positive note they delayed our 2 day a week return to the office until the end of October.

My company delayed our 1-2 days a week in office from original 7/1, to 8/1, to 9/7, to now likely not until 1/1 (i.e. could be even longer) and will now require vaccinations in order to be on-site.

 

CEO mentioned federal response and other companies for reasoning. Glad they're doing it, but one negative is that it could actually encourage people to not vaccinate so they can continue working from home.

Had a weird conversation after kickball tonight. 28 year guy wasn’t getting vaccinated because his grand parents died 2 weeks after getting vaccinated.

 

They died of Covid.

 

There is a huge swath of the adult

population that aren’t Trumpers and think this way due to bad analysis of personal anecdotes like that. Really sad.

He seems to make good points, but kinda random since the wave of that Joe Rogan Covid story has kinda subsided, no?  

 

No doubt, I would've posted it back when everyone was talking about it but it was uploaded several days later and I first noticed it today. I think it's decent enough closure to that topic and is insightful with the points about widespread misinformation going on now, so though it might be worth sharing.

On the plus side, I was able to talk my sister in law to get a shot/answered her questions so there's a W

In June, the United States purchased 500 million vaccine doses to be distributed by Covax, the World Health Organization-backed initiative to share doses around the globe.

 

Damn dirty democrats! Using the vaccine to kill the people they want to replace us with! We, the people, will not stand for it!

I'm gonna still get my booster after 6 months.

 

I'm on the 6th month right now of Moderna, but I'll wait until their booster in released, presumably at the end of the month.  It just didn't seem worth it to attempt to go rogue, especially as I'd prefer to get my vaccine based on Moderna's timetable.
