(UPDATED) The Trump-Virus Is On The Go!

 

H/T Scissorhead Jimmy-T

A quick round-up of where we are in the fight of our lives against the Trump-Virus seemed in order. And just as a reminder: none of this needed to happen. We have a vaccine, we’ve had one for months, it is free and readily available.

30% of  Americans adults remain unvaccinated, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

14% say they won’t get the vaccine, and that number has stayed pretty steady for months, and —SURPRISE!!1!—  that group is overwhelmingly white and Republican!

10% are still in “wait and see” mode, for whatever reason. That’s our margin.

Alabama:

“I want to be abundantly clear: there will be absolutely no statewide mandates, closures or the like,” Ivey said in a press release. “This state of emergency is strategically targeted at removing bureaucracy and cutting red tape wherever we can to allow our doctors, nurses and hospital staff to treat patients that come through their doors.”

Florida:

“The Biden administration is stepping in to offer financial assistance to Florida educators defying Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) law banning local K-12 mask mandates.”

Mississippi:

“With an overload of coronavirus patients and a shortage of healthcare workers in the state, the University of Mississippi Medical Center opened up a 20-bed field hospital in its parking garage on Friday morning.”

Texas:

    The Bride just got a call from her longtime best friend (BF). BF’s sister and niece are in the hospital with Covid-19. BF’s sister is a serious Xtian. Sister will go to the grocery store and if she’s undecided between two items, will ask Jesus for advice on which one to buy.

    Sister chose not to get the vaccine because she KNEW Jesus would protect her. It’s an interesting attitude since Jesus didn’t protect her from Type 1 Diabetes and colon cancer, for which she was treated recently. Maybe she figured the law of averages was on her side. Turns out it wasn’t.

    I have no idea why the niece didn’t get the vaccine, other than the fact the whole damn family is nuts.

    Scenario #1: Democratic Governor mandates masks in schools. Local School Boards explain to parents that masks are mandatory. Governor receives death threats. Death threats are investigated by state police.

    Scenario B: Republican governor does not mandate masks for freedumbs sake. Local School Boards are forced to mandate masks on their own. Local School Board Members receive death threats. The worthiness of an investigation is determined by local law and order enforcement officials and their location on a terrorist threat color-coded chart.

    Meanwhile, the children who have been walking across their lawns are dying.
