    eh so, is this similar to the Florida post yesterday about covid orders being lifted?
    why are covid orders being lifted?
    did we beat covid already?

    disclaimer: i didn't read anything other than the headline

    You are right and MAGA shitheads deserve a ton of blame, but the CDC messaging throughout all of this has been fucking terrible and continues to be terrible. They've tripped on their own dick more times then I can count.

    MAGA shitbirds were directing CDC messaging from jump. The president was in charge. He fucked us all by being an absolutely selfish piece of shit and a total fucking moron.

    Did Trump make the CDC pause the very popular J&J vaccine over 6 blood clots out of 7 million vaccines given?

    How does it continue to be terrible?

    (and if it continues to be terrible- can we still blame MAGA shitheads?)

    They tanked the very popular J&J vaccine and now vaccination rates among the under 60 crowd have plummeted.

    I know that this happened with the announcement, maybe it was a coincidence, maybe it was a supply issue.

    that was order to cancel any local orders. this is not that.
    this also keep the mask mandate, one of the best and simplest things we can do. and puts a carrot with it for hitting 70% vaccinations.
    while there may be some similarities on the surface, the execution is completely different.

    Lot’s of studies are showing that a large percentage of people have enjoyed lockdown.



    Interesting interview that touched on people’s psychology through this. The interviewer brought up an analogy that it is like gambling addicts at slot machines. Part of why they like it is because it reduces their choices, all humans have that part of them to varying degrees- whether it’s from social norms to enjoying a military precision lifestyle. You still have people in Eastern Europe who pine after their authoritarian regimes where their choices were limited.

    I suppose there’s an element of left v right to it, in Europe I’ve actually noticed that a lot of the more centre right wing governments have prolonged restrictions whilst more progressive ones haven’t. It seems to be a bit different in Anglosperic countries though.

    That story of that man going to his computer to look at an account that tracks Covid deaths even made me a bit anxious, I can’t imagine doing that for a year. Either way, people are seriously scarred by it all. Our Chief Medical Officer spent a year pointing at a Fear chart saying that people weren’t worried enough but is now changing course and has written to vaccinated people too scared to come out of their houses to tell them to socialise.

    Believe they are doing that or fining the shit out of them and pressing criminal charges. There's no way the bulk of these aren't related to the mask requirement.

    Gotcha, thanks for clarifying.

    I did receive this today. Apparently nothing changes as far as schools here - for now.

    re: Florida covid chat
    I traveled this past weekend up to the Orlando area, more specifically, Titusville and the surrounding area.
    It is very different up there as far as mask usage, compared to down here in Palm Beach County.
    Also saw quite a few Trump signs like "Trump Town USA" and bumper stickers "Jesus is my savior, Trump is my president" lol.
    Florida is two different places, really.

    Yeah ok I’m gonna stick with my original description of Orlando area. I’ll add “rural areas just outside Orlando... like Oviedo and Titusville”.

    Orlando.

    I don’t know if I’d call Oviedo rural. Like UCF is basically in Oviedo and that entire area is in a constant state development.

    I’ve never been to Titusville and I never will go there
