    Isn’t that a liberal dream? Older Americans dying, helping save Social Security by reducing average life longevity. Also reducing the amount of damage to the environment with our carbon footprint. And since the left seems to believe it’s mostly Trump supporters not getting vaccinated, it should be happy days for them.

    And last put not least, if the vaccine works, why does anyone care if others get it or not? This seems like a liberal dream to me.

    Spoiler Alert…..people were, and always will be dying.

    This is so idiotic. Why must you be this way. You seem like such a reasonable guy.

    I don't have hours to spend to find the best read related to this but I'll give you guys this. It is well written at least.

    I'm not sure what sort of deficiency in men leads them to make comparisons in the way they do, but if you are to look at the side effects of long covid + death versus vaccine it seems quite clear you should take the vaccine. I don't know about "the science" but if you are to look at the numbers holistically then it becomes pretty clear what the sharp decision is and it isn't even fucking close.

    Then throw into the mess that you'll help prevent future transmissions and further variants by helping suppress the spread but such opinions aren't popular because they're akin to socialism or something like that.
    God bless this forum. You people are precious.

    Casinos seemed to be more concerned about people coming in maskless than wearing a mask once they were already in. I'd say about 70% of people were walking around masked.

    Anyway, the mask crap is performative nonsense. We have no real data that cloth masks do very much to prevent COVID spread, especially since the realization that most of the spread is via aerosol, not droplets. It's like saying that wearing pants will prevent people from smelling your farts.

    Anyway, the Delta variant DOES seem to be breaking through to vaccinated people, which is unnerving. However, it seems the seriousness of the illness is reduced, though I personally know some people with the usual moderate-level symptoms such as extreme fatigue, loss of smell/taste, and fever. I know other breakthrough case people who just have very mild symptoms.

    I think the government is downplaying Delta's effect on vaccinated people because they are afraid it will justify people not vaccinating. I wish they'd stop bullshitting us, and just give us the straight info.
    The only difference between the vaxxed and the unvaxxed is the unvaxxed can't die from the vax. The vax doesn't work because it is not a vaccine. It is really that simple.
    Ok I'll bite and it is not a vaccine because why?

    I'd be willing to bet a lot of money there isn't one vaccine that prevents people from testing positive for whatever virus they were vaccinated against. It may be that we never really thought about how vaccinations work prior to this. Infections are relative. You can be infected with many things and not have any symptoms. It is a battle of your body versus a replicating organism. If this vaccine isn't real then no other vaccines are likely real either.

    For every virus you have to be infected before a vaccination does anything. Therefore since you are infected - it isn't a vaccine.

    Is that the point you're making or is it more nuanced ?

    I actually have gotten the Moderna vaccine. I just don’t give a damn if others do or not. I think that is a totally reasonable stance. It appears most people have or are going to get the virus and most understand the risk they are taking. And have made the decision either way.

    Sorry but I’m not one to say everyone should get an experimental vaccine at this point. Life is filled with choices that may have negative health effects on you. This is just another one in my mind. I made what I felt was the best decision for me, others are doing the same.

    Well it is sort of pointless to argue why you think people should be ok with people skipping vaccines. Look at the case numbers and see them shooting up.

    So the same guys screaming about masks and so forth are for the most part the ones who will have aided in making this thing far worse than needed. When will these people stop blaming 'liberals' or whatever the fuck?

    There are 2 issues. One being FORCED by the government and the second one EXPECTING your fellow countryman to take reasonable precautions. I'm not ok with #1 but am ok with #2. I can and do expect people to take the stupid fucking vaccine. I don't listen to Fauci, I acquire my views and news from a mixture of sources including original papers or abstracts.

    I am concerned that the vaccines aren't near as effective for this variant. I'm on vacation trying to get my time in before we're about to see next the fucking shutdowns.

    What an idiot....and a liar. You acquire your views from whatever libtard comes along wearing a stupid mask and whining about this BS "delta variant" which is meant to scare the hell out of anyone who's been pussified by Fauci.

    Wise up asshole.

    If you're serious, you will shave your head on occasion.
    Hmm. I suggested that someone who is in OSN for say getting caught Cheating on Blackjack could just come back and play by shaving their head, dyeing their gear, getting a haircut, wearing different eye color contacts, etc for a disguise and I was called an IDIOT....:/

    Take comfort in the fact that no one is actually backing up his wishes to have you permanantly banned.
