Nitpick: she was not committing treason. The correct term is sedition.
The idea of McConnell being busy doing anything is laughable. All he does is obstruct.
It’s certainly a human need. If we think the bloodshed over oil is bad, wait until we start having to fight over water….
The vaccine is primarily effective at protecting the vaccinated individual.
Masks are primarily effective at protecting people from viruses carried by the wearer.
Get vaccinated to protect yourself. Wear a mask to protect others. It is a question of what you consider important, I guess.
The vaccines seem to be very effective at protecting the vaccinated. I’ts starting to look like they are not doing a very good job of protecting the unvaccinated, however. So I guess the question is whether your priority is yourself or your community.
Thank you. It’s amazing how control over oil and water end up mattering more than human rights in so many places on Earth.
I wish it was over too, but giving up on fighting the virus doesn’t mean it’s over.
You’re educated in science and mathematics; you know better than this, Concretist. They’re not being stupid in choosing not to treat this the way an advertising executive or a politician would, in finding a marketable message and sticking to it. They’re being scientists. Yes, that does confuse people, but I prefer that to them just making something up and sticking to it in spite of the evidence just because it’s easier and makes them look more confident.
It’s hard to understand when you don’t bother to listen.
I’ve not seen any data suggesting delta is less virulent. It’s definitely more contagious, but so far the most I’ve seen on virulence is that they can’t show it’s more virulent than other strains. One complication is that now many people are vaccinated, so we need enough data to untangle whether the lower rate of serious illness is due to a less virulent strain, or due to vaccination.
