  1. Not time to break out the champagne yet, but very, very good news.
  2. No big deal. We've had mooning around for along time.
  3. The prevailing thinking in the alt-right camp is that anyone who does not get vaccinated but still gets sick had weak genes and needed to be weeded out anyways. If this sounds suspiciously similar to Nazi eugenics, you are correct. After all the Trumpenfeurher gos sick and recovered miraculously all by himself, right? He had der korrect ubergenes, at least by his thinking. All those doctors were just hovering around him in awe as he healed himself.
  4. ‘I’m at Breaking Point’: Radio Host Who Regrets Mocking Vaccines Is ‘Fighting for His Life’ A conservative radio host in Tennessee, who repeatedly spread misinformation about coronavirus and mocked vaccines but changed his tune after falling seriously ill, was still fighting for his life on Saturday, weeks after contracting the virus. Phil Valentine, who hosts a talk radio show on 99.7 WWTN-FM in Nashville, is hospitalized and is receiving supplemental oxygen while in critical care battling COVID pneumonia, his family said in a statement Friday. “They say he is still not getting well.. please pray for me,” his wife, Susan, told the station on Saturday morning, according to a tweet. “I am at a breaking point.” On Saturday afternoon, Julia Campbell Shirley declined to comment on her son-in-law’s condition before hurriedly telling The Daily Beast: “I certainly think people should be vaccinated.” Valentine had repeatedly downplayed COVID-19 and dismissed guidance from health officials about the seriousness of the virus and the importance of getting vaccinated. ‘I’m at Breaking Point’: Phil Valentine, Radio Host Who Regrets Mocking Vaccines, Is ‘Fighting for His Life’ (thedailybeast.com) Japanese Pharma Firm Joins Pfizer and Merck in Race to Develop COVID Pill Cure Reuters The race to develop an oral cure for COVID-19 has just heated up with the announcement that Japanese pharmaceutical company Shionogi has started human trials for its once-a day tablet meant to neutralize the virus in patients. Pfizer and Merck are already in later-stage trials for similar treatments, which are presently missing as a tool to battle the pandemic. Pfizer’s twice-daily treatment could be available by the end of 2021. The advent of a reliable cure would be especially important for those who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons, say medical experts.
  5. Not just dumb, but a special kind of stooopid.
  6. You sure that wasn't Alberta?
  7. Ooooh... you have revealed yourself as into kinky stuff.
  8. That has never deterred Faux News or the GOP. Too profitable to quit stoking the fear and hatred of the ignorant.
  9. I am aware of this and tried to make what I thought would be an innocuous joke, give the current climate.
  10. Danger to the world": 1,200+ scientists denounce Boris Johnson's plan to end UK COVID restrictions This article originally appeared at Common Dreams. It is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License. Feel free to republish and share widely. More than 1,200 scientists from around the world have condemned British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan to lift nearly all Covid restrictions in the United Kingdom on Monday, with some of the experts holding an emergency summit on Friday to warn that prematurely ending public health precautions in the country would lead to a surge in infections that could enable vaccine-resistant variants to develop and spread rapidly around the world. During Friday's summit, epidemiologists and physicians compared Johnson's decision to proceed with so-called Freedom Day on July 19th despite a sharp uptick in Covid-19 cases to the pursuit of "herd immunity by mass infection," The Independent reported. Forgoing almost every mandatory rule on mask-wearing and social distancing before the pandemic has been contained poses a "danger to the world," they warned. William Hasteltine, a leading AIDS researcher and chair of Access Health International, said that he was "extremely dismayed to see the very rapid rate of increasing infections in a population" that is as vaccinated as the U.K. Roughly two-thirds of the U.K.'s adult population has been fully inoculated, according to government figures, but cases, hospitalizations, and deaths have increased by 34.9%, 43.4%, and 57.4%, respectively, in the past week. "I believe that the strategy of herd immunity is actually murderous," Hasteltine continued. "I think that's a word we should use, because that is what it is. It is knowledge that you are doing something that will result in thousands, and in some cases tens of thousands of people dying." "It is a disastrous policy," he added. "It's been clear that that's been the case for some time, and to continue to espouse that policy is unconscionable."
