    That's true but other than wearing an ineffective comfortable mask how would libs show everyone that they care more than unmasked people.
    It's weird, almost right after you say something interesting and worthwhile, you say something derp would say. Just weird.

    Yes and they also have to ensure Covid is still a big deal so they can have mass mail in voting again. Milk it for all it's worth and never let a crisis go to waste.
    What do you have against mail in voting?

    Nothing if you have a legitimate reason to do it.

    Why wouldn't simple convenience be a legitimate reason?

    Get the jab if you haven't, get the booster if you have.

    "While as a public health community we are still learning about the severity of cases caused by the omicron variant, modeling shows that even if it is less severe, the sheer number of cases that could come from a variant with the level of transmissibility that we are seeing in other countries could overrun our health care system resources, especially if it coincides with the current delta wave and flu season," says Adriane Casalotti of the National Association of County and City Health Officials.

    Sooner, or, later, daddy, they're gonna have to change to "3 shots" instead of fully vaxxed at 2 shots, but needing the "booster." And when THEY do that the fully vaccinated total is gonna plummet from 61% somewhere to the 40 percentile.

    Chop/chop!!!

    The UK can console itself that however bad things get there, at least they aren't as bad as the United States.

    CDC issues grim forecast warning that weekly COVID cases will jump by 55% to 1.3 MILLION by Christmas Day and that deaths will surge by 73% to 15,600 a week as Omicron becomes dominant strain

    South Korea decides "living with COVID" is insane, reimposes restrictions to relieve the strain on hospitals.

    [1/2 Million Biden] perhaps by Spring/March, 2022. Stands the calculator...

    MF Biden: 424,000 dead Americans as of today, 12.16.21.

    93 days left to 3.20.2022/first day of Spring.

    76,000 divided by 93 days=817 dead Americans per day would confirm MF Biden as "Half Million Biden" - 500,000 dead Americans of the COVID on 3.20.2022.

    Let us proceed...

    Didn't say they weren't.

    But if able bodied people show up to vote and present I.D, I can be fairly assured that they are.

    Election laws should be changed to give you peace of mind for a statistical nullity like voter impersonation?

    De facto rationing of medical care in Colorado


    Burch has battled chronic osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis and has had two major intestinal surgeries. One specialist he was seeing left her practice last year. Another wouldn’t accept his insurance. Then, Nov. 1, he started experiencing major stomach pain.


    “When we talk terrible problems, I can’t leave the house,” he said. He hasn’t eaten anything substantial in three weeks, he added.


    Burch had to wait that long to be seen by a primary care doctor. He said the doctor told him, “‘If things were different, I would tell you to go to the hospital and be diagnosed, have some tests run and see what’s going on with you.’ But he says, ‘As of today, Delta County hospital is clear full. There are no beds available.’”


    The covid variant delta has overwhelmed the Colorado county of the same name. Hospitals on the Western Slope have been slammed for weeks, and the statewide picture is similarly grim. As of Monday, the state’s coronavirus website reported 1,294 patients hospitalized with covid-19. Half of the state’s hospitals said they anticipated a staffing shortage in mid-December; more than a third of them anticipated bed shortages in their intensive care units at the same time.


    And behind those numbers, patients are feeling the impact.


    Burch’s doctor told him he might have to wait hours in the emergency room, perhaps with people who have flu or covid symptoms. So Burch stayed home.
    He’s fully vaccinated. But just 57% of eligible people in Delta County have received at least one dose of a covid vaccine. And 84% of hospitalized covid patients in Colorado are not vaccinated.


    “It’s really frustrating because I did the right thing and like so many other people have, and we’re being just kind of like told, ‘Unless you have a really serious problem, like a heart attack, a stroke, you’re going to have a baby or something like that, we really don’t have time to mess with you,’” Burch said. “I mean, it’s just wrong.”


    Burch’s situation is not uncommon this fall, as the state faces its second-worst covid surge for hospitalizations and deaths. Hospitals are under tremendous strain and that means delays and changes from normal care, as strapped providers do more with less.


    “Hospitals across Colorado are in critical condition. We have been at 90%-plus capacity in our ICU and acute care beds for weeks now. And unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be an end to that situation in the near future,” said Cara Welch, a spokesperson for the Colorado Hospital Association.


    Diann Cullen, 72, a retiree in Broomfield, Colorado, was told by her doctor that her hernia surgery would have to be postponed for weeks. Her reaction: “Frustration, extreme frustration, actually anger, because I said a bad word. … He flat-out told me we can’t even do it because of too many covid patients.”

    I think in general they are. But it's foolish to dismiss the possibility (probability?) that they'll be hacked.

    Abbott's balls to the wall investigation of 2020 Texas votes found 16 faulty addresses on voter registration forms. None afaik were prosecuted for casting illegal votes, none went to jail.

    https://www.houstonchronicle.com/pol...t-15820210.php


    Nationwide, over a period of ~15 years, the Washington Post found 31 credible allegations of voter fraud out of a billion votes cast.

    I quite agree, but D_F is talking about voter impersonation, the incidence of which approaches zero, statistically.

    False, they've had it for everything for 30 years in Oregon, without any significant problems.
