    Ah, he's alright. I think he just thought it was being overblown for political reasons. Once more evidence/studies came out, he saw the light.

    And I second guess all doctors. They're just people. Very busy people who see me for about 10 minutes. I am my own advocate when it comes my health.

    17. You forgot Kim Schrier-D WA, a pediatrician who was able to flip a historically red district blue in 2018.

    Thanks for the correction. The web site I got that from listed her as Republican. I haven't checked for any other mistakes and don't plan to.
    She did graduate from Berkeley. That's California enough for me.

    Great lady and doctor. Was very surprised when she won our district. Had to pick a new PCP for our kids once she was elected.

    They are gunning for her this year. with $$$$. Opponent will be an Ex Army Ranger who say's he only cares about the 1st and 2nd amendments. An Army ranger just beat a 5' tall woman to death for no reason so there's that.

    Just in time for back to school and for the employers going back to the office. Seems like the CDC is taking the Delta variant pretty seriously.

    I think masks for vaccinated people will be a hard sell. There's a pretty damn high overlap between anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers. I've started to hear sentiment along the lines of "these people didn't care about anyone but themselves for the past year and half, now you want us to protect them by wearing masks again?"

    I'd put money on there being serious outbreaks in the evangelical communities in the south and the mormon areas of UT/ID, etc.

    Hmm, you think? For me, masking up in indoors public spaces is so damn easy, it's a non-issue. And it's not just for those around you; a mask gives the wearer some amount of protection too, right? With delta on the rise, personally I have zero issue masking up...it's more for me than the unvaxxed.

    It seems that merely testing positive after a vax does not mean you are "sick" with Covid. When you look at the science as we know it at this time it's pretty simple IMO.

    Sadly, I may need one of those, if only to poke a finger in the eye of the Gadsen flag crowd.

    Put together a group buy? Feeling the rain I have a feeling that masks are going to be En Vogue again for the fall season. My smile mask had the tellers laughing today at the bank.

    Actually it's a better marketing slogan than Joe is coming up with. Simple truth.

    ATLANTA—Admitting that she was caught off guard by the resurgent threat, CDC director Rochelle Wolensky expressed alarm Wednesday after Googling “Covid cases” for the first time in weeks. “Holy shit, I haven’t been checking in on the coronavirus because I thought we’d turned a corner, but damn, this looks really bad,” said Wolensky, holding up her phone for the press to show the rapidly escalating graphs of caseloads and deaths displayed on the search engine before asking if anyone else had seen this. “And the more I’m looking at this, does the Johnson & Johnson one have a different effect on the delta variant than the mRNA ones? Jesus, I see why I’ve been avoiding it now. This is just super depressing.” Wolensky added that she would probably ignore hospitalization data for the next month and hope things leveled off before her upcoming vacation to Hawaii.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    Breaking: COVID-19 just released a rare statement. "Thank you for not learning anything from the past 16 months. I really can't believe it's this easy to keep the pandemic going. See you at Sturgis!"

    COVID-19 followed up by saying: "I should clarify that the Delta variant is far more transmissible than other variants. The majority of the United States has likely already been exposed to COVID-19 as of today. Positive tests do not correlate with an increased hospitalization rate when compared to previous months. Finally, vaccinated individuals can test positive for COVID-19 but not experience symptoms."

    Gotta be spoofed. Wolensky actually has a very good reputation.

    What the fuck are we doing here? Back to masks?

    Why is the death rate not plastered on the big screen all day like it was?

    What's the end goal here? We aren't going to make Covid disappear. We as humans are going to get sick in our lifetime. If you're vaccinated and get covid, you may get a cold. Suck it up people.

    Former head of FDA said Covid is here to stay and that he thinks the Delta has already swept through the country and CDC reports are off. People need to get vaxed or GTFO.
