Either A Blessing Or A Lesson.
To so blatantly not care that he literally tested positive for plague and will possibly spread it to not just a plane full of people but a whole other population for whatever little reason he felt the need to fly. The whole plane and city should be able to take turns whippin his :moon:

I had to update my comment about the CDC. The CDC is presenting the science--assuming everyone is honest. The latter, the unvaxxed who refuse to mask, is actually the problem.
But use your own judgement because of the people & their behaviors...not the CDC.

We are still feeling the results of a whole Administration who convinced a Nation that science and facts aren't real and we can have alternative facts.
There are very few people, maybe 2, that I literally hate, and he is one of them.

I live in a state with one of the highest vaccination rates in the country - went to the mall this weekend and 90% of the people (maybe more) were wearing masks.

There’s such an interesting correlation between vaccines and mask wearing
Very much so. I went to Target over the weekend and I saw only two people without masks. Out of probably 25-30 folks I saw. And my state (Maryland) had 70+% vaccination rates.

So just shows that this is a deeper (ie intellect :look:) issue.
Very much a connection. I'm in Flori-duh and anywhere I am easily 90% are not wearing masks. I just be making my mad dashes through the grocery store! :laugh:

OAN: We need to pay attention to science in Israel. They tend to be on trend or ahead in some of their research because they don't always let politics interfere with some of the public health measures.
Good to know. I was wondering if they were a credible source since I've seen a few of their news items.

So why am I today years old just finding out that the symptoms for the Delta Variant aren't the regular old Covid symptoms?
Delta symptoms are sneezing, runny nose and the mother of all headaches. Why ya'll ain't tell me? :mad:


"The Delta variant has different symptoms than the previous variants.
Symptoms are headache, fever, sore throat, then runny nose.
The variant shares symptoms with the common cold and people may not realize they have covid and not a cold.

However the new Delta Plus variant has all the symptoms. the Delta Plus variant carries symptoms of the Delta as well as its partner the Beta variant. Some of these symptoms include cough, diarrhea, fever, headache, skin rash, discolouration of fingers and toes, chest pain, and shortness of breath.

Other symptoms listed by the experts and attributed to the Delta Plus variant are: stomache ache, nausea and loss of app."

Delta Plus In India: 60% Cases Are Either Asymptomatic or Have Mild Symptoms​


Though 4 out of nearly 50 cases have succumbed to the delta plus, other epidemiological parameters look very assuring. However, it's too early to arrive at any conclusion.

:wavey: We did tell you a few pages back.

"Fauci also said U.S. officials are concerned that they are seeing more breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated people in the U.S., even if they are more mild cases.

“That’s something we obviously don’t want to see,” he said, noting that the delta variant was highly transmissible. “This virus is clearly different than the viruses and the variants that we’ve had experience with before. It has an extraordinary capability of transmitting from person to person.”

"Variants have increased in transmissibility from the original strain and some are proving to reduce the effectiveness of vaccines."

Not to laugh, but really...I have NEVER seen the bedsheet rope outside of a movie. I thought it was one of those Hollywood myths like being able to dodge bullets Matrix style or women going to fightcrime in heels.

Where did he get all of the sheets?

And the fact that he was willing to trust those sheets at that height with whatever grown up body weight he has just so that he could go gallivanting says a lot about senseless some people are.


ETA: This guy must have been doing this since high school.

I was wondering
why the change in
the tune the dude
below is singing.
Was coming to ask
whether it had
something to do
with the stock market,
lawsuits, or because
people who would
vote for him are
dropping like flies. :scratchchin:


My money is on "the people who vote for him are dropping like flies." Him and all of the other ones who are now suddenly encouraging vaccination.

For people with worse symptoms despite being vaccinated… these are the cases where I wonder whether they would have died had they been unvaccinated. Seems the vaccine may simply move people into the next category - from mild to asymptomatic, severe to mild, death to severe. Other situations that will need to be considered will be how many of the breakthrough cases nonetheless end up with long Covid; or develop MIS-C, which was initially found in children who had had asymptomatic cases.

So today sucked.
Dropped my oldest to Summer camp. 2nd enclosed field trip is to the museum. She went on and told me the teacher doesn't enforce masks. I marched right up and asked about it. And I told her she'd better enforce it. She s unvaccinated and her co-workers were getting on her about that. I told her whats going on out here in these streets and how its both the vaccinated and unvaccinated getting infected with the new variant but its the unvaccinated spreading it and dying more. I told her my child HAS to wear her mask out in public. And when I pick her up today---I. WILL. FIND. OUT.
I had to go back home and calm myself (hubby consoled me) cause my anxiety was all the way up.

Of course more and more people trying to come in for services with no mask. But when they see us, they see all of us masked to the T.

Of course the President of a major Uni here in Florida's great capital sent the entire staff and faculty an email begging them to get vaccinated bc the CEOs of both local hospitals basically called him personally about the uptick in 50 or younger being both infected and unvaccinated. He has the ear of the Governor so I know they went to him as well.

I am proud of France and Atlanta. People gone be mad either way. The mask mandate or a shut down. They can choose. I stocked up last night and thats round one.

Not to mention babies still being born, mommies being re-admitted and it just really sucks from down here.

Our public health fellow sent out a memo stating staff need to continue to mask and get vaccinated. We can eat in the break room with no masks if both parties are vaccinated.

I haven't had lunch with a coworker in the past year and a half and don't plan on starting up again. Send me an email or cashapp for cupcakes. I feel your spirit but I don't need to be near you.

We already knew what was up Fauci. At least >WE< did.
