      • Yeah….the only debate is whether it’s because Republicans are too stupid to wear masks or because they are too stupid to social distance or too stupid to get vaccinated.
        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

          You're forgetting they also have unhealthy lifestyles and are more likely to be smokers, older, weaker, and fatter, ignorant of medicine and proper hygiene, not to mention having higher incidences of stress from their poor decision-making and social isolation, ineptitude, and anger.

            And since this continues to rage, the combination of all of the above will mean somewhere around 150,000 R's will die every year (the daily average over the last 6 or so months has been about 450/day, then give some benefit of the doubt to round down some for 365 days a year). There's no obvious slow down of deaths other than where we are now.

            Still kind of stuns me that it's that many. That's more than diabetes, more than Alzheimer's, in the ballpark of lower respiratory deaths and stroke- for sure, 2022 will be somewhere in the 3-5 leading cause of death (it was 3rd in 2020, we will see for 2021- but given all of the deaths, it will certainly close to #1).

                If that's the way the R's want to change their voting numbers, I suppose it's the way we go.

                    Not in close swing states. Nationwide, sure. But states like Florida where the margin of victory is pretty tight on a state wide vote- 10k losses there do make a big difference.

                      FL is a bad example, because the GOP will simply continue to cheat more outrageously to hold it (cf. OH, WI). But I can see PA, NC, NV, AZ being affected by DerpDeaths.

                          This brings in another layer.

                          Many of us that vote D that are currently 28-40 have actively made the choice to NOT have kids. This is while many families in the same age range with 2+ kids are strong R voters.

                              • Sigh....

                                So a cruise channel I watch posted a video about an outbreak on a ship. And the excuses are out- this is now normal, we need to live with this, it's government control- resist, etc.

                                Since the testing is only finding it in crew, thankfully, they are all vaccinated. But ships are now allowing unvaccinated on board, and there is no testing. So there's a 100% chance that a passenger brought it on board and then spread it around the crew.

                                It's interesting that people continue to deny how bad COVID still is, being the 5th (currently) leading cause of death in the US. And the total lack of compassion for those who have gotten sick and die, to the point that people are STILL actively fighting properly dealing with this.... The real irony of the government control conspiracy is that it's the r's that desire to have more control over people- killing people they think are bad (either by cops or penalties), and controlling women pretending that life is the most important thing. I really don't get people.

                                At some point, someone who is unvaccinated will go on a ship get sick and die. It's going to happen- just the odds of who is going on and the lack of protections.

                                But we've gotten through it, and it's highly unlikely that we will get sick on our next cruise given the timing. If someone wants to risk their lives, I can't stop them. Sure sucks for the people who have to take care of them.
