And if you hippies and mask-wearing liberal elites don't like it, don't worry, once Q-Anon reveals himself and delivers horse dewormer to us REAL Americans. We'll kick all y'all out of OUR country!


If you aren't all dead from COVID by then. Not saying I'm hoping for it, but hey, if it happens, Oh well!

Fauci said he would support a third dose if future data shows it’s effective.


I wanted to add that it didn't go unnoticed by me that you were egging on HermosaJoe for defending his right to spread Invermectin propaganda in the Cedric Ceballos thread. You piled on to agree that the moderators were unfair bullies for not allowing propaganda to be spread here.

So by my count this current round, you're at strike 2.


No, it's more than strike 2. This sort of hit & run BS is also a problem. He'll ignore all these responses until it's time for the next hit & run.

So, that's enough. He needs to finish the discussion he started. He needs to come here & address these responses directly. If he doesn't, then that's strike 3.

I'll give ya 72 hours, xxsicrokerxx -- through Thursday.

Yikes, and you're a registered nurse? Do you do patient care? If so, please exit the field ASAP, and then stay as far the (bleep) away as you can from any position where vulnerable people must depend upon your responsibility/intellect for their health, because you will fail them, and they will die. I'd bet money that this has happened already. If god is merciful, you're only on light duty, or are just some e-charting super user...anything but clinical. Is it any wonder that we've yet to overcome a pandemic after a year and a half if there are people like yourself who, despite having gone to school where they spent years compiling the explicit knowledge base and the tools necessary to simplifying such a problem, sought out every which way to compound the problem and avoid using the tools that they paid for?

Meantime, would you care to explain what you've written above?

Because wearing a mask is so damn offensive . . . right?

Texas couple asked to leave restaurant for wearing face masks to protect their immunocompromised infant

A Texas couple who landed themselves a rare night out with friends says it was cut short when the restaurant kicked them out for wearing face masks, which they say they wore to protect their immunocompromised 4-month-old son.

Natalie Wester and her husband, Jose Lopez-Guerrero, joined a group of friends at a restaurant and bar in Rowlett, about 20 miles northeast of Dallas, on September 10.

"We are new parents and in the middle of a pandemic, we don't really get out a whole lot," Wester told CNN. "But that Friday night, my mom happened to be available to watch our son. ... Living in a pandemic, being isolated and away from others is a big deal for our mental and social health."
Their infant has cystic fibrosis, they said, so they have taken precautions to stay safe and do what's best for their family, and that includes wearing a face mask in public except when drinking or eating.

But the restaurant they visited, Hang Time Sports Grill & Bar, has a no-mask wearing policy, according to its owner, whom CNN affiliate KTVT identified only as Tom. Wester said she was not aware of the policy.
CNN reached out to Hang Time Sports Grill & Bar on Monday by email and phone but has not heard back.


"About 30 minutes in, our waitress comes over and she sits down next to me and she's like, 'Hey, so our manager is over there in the kitchen, and he is not as nice as I am so I came over here to talk to you and unfortunately, this is a political thing, but our manager does not believe in the mask. He's tired of being told what to do by, you know, politics in the country, and so you're going to need to take the mask off," Wester said.


The owner's response:

It’s a policy you don’t hear often amid the pandemic, but the owner says he considers it part of the dress code.

“I have spent my money on the business, my blood sweat and tears in this business, and I don’t want masks in here,” Tom, the owner of Hang Time, said.

He says it’s a private business and he has every right to refuse service to those who want to wear their mask.

“I feel the overall reaction with masks is ridiculous in the United States right now,” Tom said.

There’s no sign, instead the hostess tells everyone who wears one that they must take them off at the door.

“So when they put their masks on the other night, they were reminded that at the front to take it off. They didn’t want to, and so we asked them to leave,” the owner continued.

He said he was unaware of her immune compromised son, but that it’s a rule they believe strongly in and will continue to enforce.

Meanwhile in Florida, DeathSantis appoints a new surgeon general

https://www.local10.com/news/local/2021/09/21/desantis-announces-new-florida-surgeon-general/

A black Doctor from UCLA Health. At first sounds like a good, progressive pick from DeSantis. Well until this:

Quote:
Last month Ladapo wrote an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal headlined “Masks Are a Distraction From the Pandemic Reality,” saying that COVID-19 mask mandates may “have unintended consequences that outweigh the benefits.”

He said Tuesday after being introduced in his new post that there’s been too much emphasis on COVID vaccines.


And of course he’s one of the quacks from “America’s Frontline Doctors” that’s pushing hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. He was in the video that Trump tweeted with the other doctor that believes in devil spawn and alien dna.

The problem isn't that someone made this subreddit.
The problem is that Americans are so stupid, this subreddit had the opportunity to exist.

Biden doubles US global donation of COVID-19 vaccine shots

Quote:

President Joe Biden announced Wednesday that the United States is doubling its purchase of Pfizer's COVID-19 shots to share with the world to 1 billion doses as he embraces the goal of vaccinating 70% of the global population within the next year.

The stepped-up U.S. commitment marks the cornerstone of the global vaccination summit Biden convened virtually on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, where he encouraged well-off nations to do more to get the coronavirus under control.

Its usually people who barely managed to scrape thru grades K-12 (IF THAT) so they have a chip on their shoulder regarding education....so they double down and act like somehow they know better than doctors, educators and scientists, etc. They thumb their noses at facts and logic and instead opt to go searching for "truth". They somehow think they are in the know and we are all just sheep. And that type of thinking just festers and grows, like a disease. Seen it happen with a buddy of mine who I've mentioned ad nauseum in the Political thread. SMH

Notice when you're conversing with people of that ilk how often you're interrupted mid-sentence before your point is made. When that happens to me I wait until they're finished and ask, "what was I going to say." They can't answer and I sometimes get to finish my sentence.

I think production is the limiting step… honestly I’d rather see US/EU strong arm these vaccine producing pharma into base cost selling or maybe a 5% profit (something most countries then able to afford the purchase then the ones that can’t afford gets them from US/EU). They are making record profits from the vaccine (anyone has the figures?)

Why spike the dressing when you can spike the restaurant's AC unit. Either they'll wear a mask or risk getting exposed to the vaccine by breathing. /s
