    This is going to become a major controversy over the next weeks and months. Colorado putting all prisoners above people under 65 with pre-existing conditions seems fucked up and also political suicide.

    I have a feeling that this will be a major republican talking point.

    Committing a crime doesn't make you sub-human. Sure, it's political suicide, but politics isn't known for its promotion of ethical conduct.

    The data suggest prison populations are higher risk.

    Vaccinating the only people that the state has said cannot socially distance is the morally correct stance. People that are outraged by that decision are horrible people.

    Healthy prisoners versus non-prisoners with preexisting conditions is not something I agree with at all. The death rate for someone who is young and healthy is far less than someone who has major health problems. People with major health problems should be at the same time as people 65+. Giving young, healthy prisoners the vaccine before these people would be a bad decision IMO.

    Frame it as vaccinating prisoners to save taxpayer money via reduced prison healthcare costs. GOPers everywhere jizz themselves and we all move on with our lives. Doesn't even matter if it's true when the word tax is involved.

    they think all prisoners are murderers, rapists and terrorists so that won’t work.

    the degree to which some of you view literally everything through the lens of "what do the dumbest people in our country think" is concerning

    Would be great if they could classify depending on crimes, though. Let the rapists and pedophiles wait.

    I think you worded it incorrectly. If the remaining ICU occupancy falls below 15% the stay at home orders go into place. So basically if any regions ICU occupancy is 85+% the stay at home order goes into place.

    not to burst your bubble but taxes and costs were never important. they're a white supremacy death cult. these vaccinations could save the country trillions and they would still be furious unless the poor black and brown people in prisons were exterminated as a result. hth

    North Texas closing bars and rolling back restaurant capacity to 50%. But if you’re a bar that serves food you’re immune, which basically every bar has done.

    Hank Hill would be petrified of me saying this, but I sure wish I lived in California right now. Tired of the slow burn approach and wish we would just flatten the curve with stay at home for a couple of weeks

    Just heard from my mother's hospice. She's probably not going to make it through the weekend. Of the 80 or so residents there, all but 7 have covid. Its going to be an absolute shitshow.

    Early on they listed hypertension as a risk factor, but not sure if it's still regarded as one. If I factor in hypertension as a risk factor and say yes to that particular question, I get bumped up to 20 million instead of 286 million. (mine is controlled by a generic ACE inhibitor)

    Probably late on this, but this is a correct take. If my grandmother dies of COVID and some murderer / rapist gets the vaccine before her I’d be livid
