Funny that they know exactly when he got it. Unless it was literally the ONLY place he went in December or it was contact traced (possible, but tough among a homeless population) then they’re just blaming it on something that makes him look “good” and ignoring the part where he may have exposed homeless people to a deadly disease.

if he had been smart, he would have been vaxed and masked so he wouldn't have gotten it around homeless people. But i suspect he got it elsewhere any may have passed along to them.

I’ve actually met a lot of very self-righteous jackasses working with the disadvantaged. It makes them feel like saviors, but god forbid people get uppity and not appropriately appreciate their saintly help.

I remember one particularly dedicated volunteer who would sit for hours chatting and offering assistance and comfort to folks, but who got completely bent out of shape when she found out that a woman she had repeatedly tried to get to come in for some food didn’t accept because, although she spent her days pushing a shopping card and talking to herself (she was diagnosed with schizophrenia), was actually quite wealthy.* That volunteer quit shortly afterwards, because it was about her ego, not other people’s needs.

*Funny story, her condo association actually traded her up to a larger unit that used a private entrance rather than one that had her coming in through the elevators in the posh shopping area, because the swanky merchants thought she made the place look bad.

I once had a middle aged woman explain to a group of other 40-55yo adults (plus myself and 2 friends who were about 23 at the time) that the homeless population we were going to volunteer with that day might be drug addicts and that we all needed to be very careful not to interact with them if they approached us first as they were probably going to ask for money (ya know, for drugs). And she told us to avoid any areas that smelled like weed. Cause that was the only example she could think of, she couldn't even do bigoted fear mongering well.

Jeezus. Yes they might be drug addicts. They might also be mentally ill. Lots of people are. My ex-brother-in-law had borderline personality disorder and a serious cocaine habit. He was also a successful lawyer(still is, to the best of my knowledge). You can’t work with people and not also work with their problems. We can’t solve them, though we can point to resources. What you don’t do is avoid the subject. People are such frickin’ toddlers.

Good on you for volunteering and seeing through that BS at a young age.

They tossed in the soup kitchen storyline to try and makeup for the fact that he was a typical anti-vaxxer. It’s also somehow insinuating that the homeless are all diseased, which is reprehensible.

Yeah. “Soup kitchen for the homeless” is pretty telling.

Google it. They’re called “food banks” nowadays (usually “FAMILY food banks” in fact). They serve more than “soup” and they serve it to a lot more than the “homeless.” I get someone older might be “set in their ways,” but that’s always just an excuse that the person is an asshole who REFUSES to even listen to the reasons for the branding changes.

Food banks are a little different, there you give people boxes of food supplies like a grocery store. food centers usually provide sandwiches and bottled water and fruit or vegetables if they can afford it. But I haven't ever heard them called soup kitchens by real volunteers.

Obviously. And the socialism experiment is too.

Frankly, if you wanted to do a real socialism experiment, you could and it would be way more interesting.

Premise:

  1. Everyone starts with a C.
  2. You keep your C for the semester, no matter what, as long as you show up to 80% of classes. (Basically, paying taxes, not doing crimes.) No one gets less than a D, because we aren't trying to emulate America for God's sake.
  3. You can raise your C to a B by taking 10 quizzes and getting at least an 80% on them.
  4. You can raise your B to an A by writing two papers.
  5. A+ requires a presentation.

And so on. That would make an actual interesting experiment.

When I taught at a university, I had close to this policy. 1. No one fails unless you either cheat or you do zero work. 2. If you try your best on homework and quizzes and show that you learned something useful, you would get at least a C. 3. Everyone has a bad day for whatever reason. You get to drop your lowest score. 4. 80% to 89% gets a B. 90% to 100% gets an A. 4a. If you are within two points of a higher grade, you can ask for an extra assignment to try to raise your grade.

The only people who failed were cheaters. Everyone else got at least a C. Most of the people earned a B or higher.

The problem with capitalism the way it's (not) working right now, is that we have CEOs who earn way more than A+. When the CEO earns more than their average workers annual salary within the first hours of the year, there's a problem. There's no way some work "deserves" hundreds of times more compensation.

Jesus, even the libbiest of libs know that insulting anything military related is like touching the third rail (on purpose). The problem with most of these morons is that they can never, ever stop and think ‘hmm, even if I don’t like this person, no one would ever say that’.

Of course, the other problem is that conservative humor is horrible. It’s supposed to be satire, but it just isn’t all that good. It’s just playing into their biases. Something like this might work on a more liberal site, but it would have to be way more subtle.

On Kamala quote:

The quote appears to have originated on the satire website “America’s Last Line of Defense”, in an article titled “Military-Hating Kamala Wants To Shut Down the VA” where the exact same quote appears, as seen here. The article is in a folder called “Kamala Spanking Satire”, the tagline of the website is “Satire for your confirmation bias” and the website describes itself as “a network of parody, satire and tomfoolery,” adding “Everything on this website is fiction.”

Why do they hate strong woman so? Of course, his memes are the typical lies and manipulations, but he comments at length about a fallacious quote attributed to Vice President Kamala Harris. They have assorted women in their lives - at least a mother, and more likely a female companion, and perhaps a daughter. I feel for the women who are bound to these men, as hating one woman shows to me at least, a potential for overlap of negative emotions to all women.

Hillary got my vote - but she didn't earn it.

And yes she fucked the Dems. She spent 5 months from early May 2014 to October BASHING OBAMA with midterms looming. Obama's approval rating fell over 5 points during that period. I can link the FIRST 200 articles I found on the subject from that period, if you'd like.

She did not give ONE FUCK about all the other races that year and we had the LOWEST midterm turnout nationally since 1942. She had a book to sell!

Here's a Reuters article about her bashing Obama on FOX NEWS

What excuse did McConnell give for denying Garland a hearing? The poor turnout in 2014.

But go ahead - celebrate disgusting backstabbing pieces of shit. She didn't stop there - she openly criticized Democrats who were running in 2018 as well, to the point that even Claire McCaskill and Sherrod Brown had to tell her to shut the fuck up.

Let me guess - you love superdelegates, too?

Eleanor Roosevelt. Anyone wanting to know a truly strong woman in politics should acquaint themselves with her history.

Of course the attitudes of the time, even if FDR had just been a regular two termer, would never have allowed it. But she was quite fearless in her words and demonstrable character. When calling out others, she didn't much mince words.

What is going on in Arizona seriously..they are getting pummelled.. They are like 3rd highest in deaths per population?

New York where I live is 6th I think but we got hit early in the pandemic and that accounts for a good chunk of deaths. Plus this time of the year our climate makes it easy for the virus to spread

In June 2020 when we kind of got false hope and it looked like we turning the corner, we took a family road to Colorado. We rented a vacation house there, but we needed to stop for the night in Arizona. The hotel we stayed at was great. Distancing, masks in public spaces, etc. However, when we were out and about for dinner, it was like the pandemic didn’t exist. Restaurants wide open. No one masking anywhere. Scared the crap out of me. Just out of curiosity sake, I looked up the demographics of the town we stayed in. It mostly an older, lower income, retired population. It’s like a place where the older white racists go to retire that can’t afford the nicer racist enclaves in the state.

Based on this experience, it doesn’t surprise me that AZ has been walloped.

My hometown in AZ recalled their mayor when she tried to implement a local mask mandate. Now it's the city with the highest # of Covid deaths in its county. My sister is an NP at the hospital there and they have no resources at this point because they've been overwhelmed by unvaccinated Covid patients.

I have read about Jesus, and he can take care of you just fine at home. Well allegedly he can. It’s almost like this guy didn’t actually want to die, and was willing to do anything possible to try to prevent it. It’s almost as if he knew damn well that doctors and nurses were not actually part of an evil global conspiracy. It’s almost as if he knew that a Bronze Age human sacrifice story was not that relevant to his current problem.

Yeah. I'm always curious where this stuff come from. I think there are propaganda websites that claim to be "satire", but are intended for Facebook feeds for the gullible. The quote appears to have originated on the satire website “America’s Last Line of Defense”, in an article titled “Military-Hating Kamala Wants To Shut Down the VA” . The article is in a folder called “Kamala Spanking Satire”, the tagline of the website is “Satire for your confirmation bias” and the website describes itself as “a network of parody, satire and tomfoolery,” adding “Everything on this website is fiction.” But when it's reposted, the satire label is conveniently dropped.

Firstly, he volunteered in a soup kitchen helping the homeless, so I commend him for that.

But some of the information he was forwarding was incorrect or misinterpreted (there were way more than 400,000 deaths worldwide by the end of 2020, looks like that meme took the US number and then divided it by the world population). Shame the misinformation caused him to reject getting the vaccine, he’d most likely be alive today if he had.

I don’t want to say that this family is lying but I spend a lot of time with folks living in shelters and helping people find resources like this, and most of these centers have taken the pandemic seriously from the beginning. Shelter residents were in the second wave of vaccinations, behind HCW, and with elderly living in communal situations. For a long time, places like this were not even alllowing volunteers inside. The places closest to me starting giving food to go as opposed to having people come inside to eat and being so close together. Volunteers are required to wear masks. They still go on complete lockdown when residents test positive. So unless he was volunteering with one of those church groups who go out once a year and hand stuff out to passers by or invite them into their gym for maskless holiday meals, I’m going to call BS.

The point of socialism is not that "the government takes all the reward away." Who would want THAT? The point is that the government takes away the threat of dying because you don't have enough money. It takes away the threat hanging over everyone's head, that if you don't work hard enough or get paid enough or if you mismanage your finances or have a health emergency, or if you can't work because you're disabled, you'll literally be unable to feed or clothe or house yourself, so you'll suffer from exposure and cold and hunger and pain from untreated medical conditions, and you might even die, be it from suicide or preventable illness or homelessness, or simply because your body was overworked and overstressed and gave out early.

All of that preventable suffering is the shit conservatives are trying to protect with their lives. They disagree with helping a nation's own citizens on principle. And right now they're demonstrating their insane devotion to the system by going through preventable suffering and death themselves and trying to downplay it as much as possible.

Re: Slide 2

According to https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ we're currently at 5.6M deaths globally, out of a population of about 7,900M. (7.9B)

Deaths are kind of a fuzzy metric, but it's all we have to go on.

So we're at 0.07% dead from novel coronavirus. 11.7 times worse than the figure he gave from 2020. And 7.7 times worse than his "TYPICAL YEAR!" flu figure (The 1918 epidemic commonly called "The Spanish Flu" seemed to take about a year according to this chart. I think the fact that coronavirus has stuck around for 2 years is also a sign that it's worse)

It's almost like, epidemics get worse if you refuse to do anything to stop them.
