US Surgeon General Expresses Concern About Worsening Pandemic
The U.S. Surgeon General said he’s very concerned about what lies ahead, with cases of COVID-19 increasing in every state and millions still unvaccinated, as a highly contagious virus variant is spreading rapidly. Meanwhile, you have Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in Florida - a state with the highest COVID infection rate in the country - bragging about eliminating all precautions employed by other states, such as prohibiting local governments from enacting measures like mask requirements and social distancing, while selling campaign merchandise on his website saying “Don't Fauci My Florida.”
Great merch ideas Gov. DeSantis! Hey, I’ve got a couple more you might like. How about “They'll vaccinate me - over my dead body." Looks like about a third of the country might like that one. Or, what about this “You can stick that needle in my cold, dead arm!” I’m telling ya, the merch possibilities seem endless.
Of course, Republicans know all this anti-vax hysteria will mean lots of folks are gonna die - but at least they’re gonna die “owning the Libs” - and that’s gotta count for something! I mean, what’s the point of running a death cult, if you don’t have lots of deaths? Besides, in Gov. DeSantis’ defense, the first 50 years or so of a COVID pandemic, are always gonna be the worst.
You see, DeSantis has devised the perfect MAGA COVID plan - “don't wear masks, don't get vaccinated, and do not social distance.” Well, that plan seems to be working - and they’ve got nearly 40,000 dead Floridians to prove it. Florida’s now #1 in the nation, with 20% of all new COVID infections. But, ya know governor, I can’t help thinking there are times when you probably shouldn’t be shooting for #1 - just say’n.
Seeing it another way: With 7% of the country's population, we have a "mere" 20% of the new cases.
I can just see his next election opponent wearing one of those "Don't Fauci..." shirts on the campaign trail. or to a cemetery campaign stop. Oh, though, that may just be too subtle for those who might still be considering voting for him.
The 40K number is a lie, it's much worse than that. The county coroners have some leeway in re to how deaths are counted. If some one dies and they had both heart disease and COVID the death certificate might be filed as natural causes if COVID caused their heart to fail. In a state where so many are elderly who would question it?
We have gotten quite good at saving the lives of Covid-19 patients. I would otherwise be glad these fools would be killing themselves. As it stands, they are just costing us more money in health care prices. My supplemental went up $780 from a year ago, in April.
I have no sympathy for them, they chose to ignore the facts about Covid19, they chose to believe Trump, Fucker Carlson along with the Q experts. Ya can't have your cake and eat it too..
I don't care about them, even welcome their death; however, their assholeness is causing strains on the medical and hospital systems which may affect the rest of us for normal care.
At the height of the pandemic many of them went everywhere maskless in Florida due to the misinformation that spewed from DeathSantis and Faux News. It was terrifying just going to the grocery store at 7 a.m. before the crowds.
