2. I'm at the hurry up and die stage for these jerks

I feel bad for their families & friends who have taken the vaccine and the health care workers
and others who have to deal with these shits but if you are taking medical advice from Fox News
instead of Dr. Fauci or Dr. Walensky then please hurry up and die.

6. Horrible News!!

It is really sad to see the Unvaccinated Pandemic going on right now and while I do feel similarly with most posters on this thread that I don't have much sympathy to those that choose to be unvaccinated, we do have to remember that there is a group of our population that cannot get the vaccination for various reasons. It is selfish for those that have the option and refuse to get it, but it puts some of our population into a very high risk based off the increasing numbers here.

I have a good friend that has been working on the vaccinations since COVID began and we talked about this last week and my sentiment about how IDGAF about these unvaccinated people and she reminded me that the larger this spreads, the higher the chance we have to develop more concerning variants similar to the Delta variant. Our present vaccinations could potentially not work towards future variants.

Be safe out there folks, and let's show some compassion. Love always wins.

Facing growing calls to lift the ban, at least for schools. Hutchinson says he is evaluating options for changes. Legislative leaders say they’re talking with lawmakers about what action they woul

9. I suspect that it'll be too late before they decide to allow masks (no longer ban them), since the

Delta version of the virus is spreading so rapidly. Be safe.
