    In some aspects the current environment facilitates mental instability. E.g., social media

    Lol he actually tagged them? Wow...even if he wasn't already under orders to not do that kind of thing, that would have been stupid...but the fact that he had a court order to not set up protests just makes it all the more funny

    anti-vaxxers/maskers are, as a rule, among the dumbest in society.......not a huge shock that this guy fits the mold.

    Tagging the Bombers in his post is a great way for word to get out. This guy is clearly a genius.

    always my favorite part of camp.  Hearing about all the potential newbies and what they can bring to the table.

    𝗗𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗶𝗻 𝗕𝗮𝘂𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴   @DarrinBauming · 4h Opening team session, offence drives down the field and out comes Marc Liegghio. Good from 42.
    Second drive, and out comes Tyler Crapigna. Miss from 42.   Both just hit from 52. It’s clear to me Liegghio has the stronger leg — also haven’t seen him miss any of his roughly six kicks today.

    The players can also lose their game cheque. I think it’s great.  Get vaccinated and get on with it.

    nfl getting tough on anti vaccinationers.
     
     
    "The NFL just informed clubs that if a game cannot be rescheduled during the 18-week season in 2021 due to a COVID outbreak among unvaccinated players, the team with the outbreak will FORFEIT and be credited with a loss for playoff seeding, per sources."
     
    there is a long twitter thread on this.  Pelissero.

    I am looking forward to meeting him one day.  My neighbour played for him in Toronto and says that he would have run through walls for the guy.  So obviously that's way more important that being a media darling.

    I bumped into an old Winnipeg sports-writer one time and he told me this:

    "Mike Kelly was a sports-writers dream come true.  Mike O'Shea is every sports-writer's nightmare".
    Those coaches' call in shows with Kelly were classics.  I gave up listening to poor old Bob try and do call-in shows with O'Shea, as the two word grunts in response to a detailed question were just not really doing much for me.  I love Osh of course and what he has done for the Bombers, but he's definitely not a talkative guy, and that's ok.

    The hard part is mine are 3 and 6 months. Even if children get approved for a vaccine it will probably be 2+ and the baby will still be unvaccinated. People just need to keep being smart about this stuff and put an end to the spread.

    I think what alot of the anti-vax , anti -mask crowd don't get is the repercussions of Covid. We talked to a Physio therapist yesterday who said she is so tired of dealing with Covid patients who survived the initial infection but now have severely damaged organs etc. Some probably will never get out of the hospital.And all they had to do was get a vaccine.
    My son told me one of his co-workers,  a fit, healthy,  30 something guy got Covid. At one point he called his parents from the hospital to say goodbye because he didn't think he would make it. He survived BUT he has severe liver damage. He came in to see the guys at work and my son said he is a shell of his former self.  Just a mess. He is a partsman and isn't healthy enough to go back to work.
    I don't understand how people don't take it seriously.

    Ditto.
     
    I'm actually amazed how much "material" you've packed into one title and one and a half lines lines. I'm no fan of the current government by any means, but it's a charter issue. I'm not even going to attempt at touching anything you've brought up, including the inference that we should treat our population like the Chinese do. I honestly don't think you care to know the answers to your own questions.

    Here was my conversation with an old friend of my wife's who said she wasn't getting the vaccine. 
    Her: "I haven't gotten the vaccine"
    Me: " why not ? "
    Her:" I just dont "
    Me: " But why not ? "
    Her: dead air, then stumbling for words and no answer.
    So this over weight woman ,in her late 60s had not one actual reason or answer as to why she would risk her life. She is neither religious or far right. As you said perhaps the " Darwin wave " will remove her type

    I feel bad that we have systems of power and education that allow so many of these beliefs to be held. This should be viewed as people slipping through the cracks and not having a sufficient level of critical thinking ability. As much as individuals professing crazy, society-harming beliefs pisses me off, the systems that allow so many people to have these views needs to be examined. Its a low bar, but surpassing the US in vaccination rates despite more supply issues says something about our education system and other power dynamics that exist.
    That we haven't got 80% of eligible people in the province a vaccine after over a year of having Covid.... I could imagine it if we said that the threat was coming, but we've already lived it. I guess going through restrictions, masking, etc. hasn't been so bad for the anti-mask/restrictions crowd that has disregarded public health measures.
