Anti-vaxxer/Ivermectin advocate Joe Rogan has announced that he too has Covid. But he's reassured his watchers/listeners, whatever it is he does, that he's receiving some of the best veterinary care the US of A has to offer.

This must be how the Roman Empire ended.

At least we will have Wi-Fi.

These aren't rational people.

TUCSON (KVOA) - A conflict over the COVID-19 quarantine policy at a Vail Unified School District elementary school has been resolved shortly after protesters threatened to make a citizen's arrest on the principal Thursday morning.

According to VUSD officials, a student at Mesquite Elementary School was asked to quarantine after he reportedly was in close contact with an individual who tested positive for COVID-19.

VUSD said this decision was made per state policy, citing that when a school in Arizona experiences a positive case of COVID-19, it is required to report the case to its county health department - in Vail's case, Pima County Health Department. Then, the county decides which individuals need to quarantine in order to prevent a potential outbreak in the community.

However, after hearing the quarantine request, three individuals and the child involved drove over to the school in order to protest the decision. The three individuals were later identified as one of the child's parents, another community member and a local business owner, who live-streamed the confrontation over his business' Instagram account.

Over the Instagram live, the business owner reportedly shared his discontent over the situation and threatened to use zip ties to arrest the principal of Mesquite Elementary School. The zip ties could also be seen in the video.

WTF is wrong with these people?
Vancouver Public Schools officials confirmed on Friday that the Skyview High School, Alki Middle School and Chinook Elementary were put in lockdown after anti-mask protesters tried to gain access to school grounds.

Pat Nuzzo, communications director for the district, called the lockdown’s a “safety precaution.”

“This is related to yesterday’s protest against Washington state’s requirement for staff and students to wear masks or face coverings in schools and on buses,” Nuzzo wrote to OPB.

Patriot Prayer, a far-right group led by Southwest Washington’s Joey Gibson, and other far-right activists made posts online incorrectly claiming that a student at the school who did not want to wear a mask would face arrest if they entered school grounds.

Disgraceful.
Just 16% of sheriff staff self-attested to being vaccinated as of last month, compared with 75% of Board of Supervisors staff, according to data Voice of OC obtained through a public records request.

Deputy sheriffs are only about 8 percent of the county government workforce, but account for nearly half of all recent Covid infections among county employees who were exposed at work, according to county data.

"Forcing main street to vax or pay a fine will not only crush an economy he's put on life support—it's flat-out un-American," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., wrote on Twitter. "To Joe Biden, force is more important than freedom. Americans won't stand for it."



Wondering if ol' Qev might be eating his words on that.
  1. The majority of Americans support vax/mask/testing mandates;
  2. OSHA could very well have the authority to require vaxxing as a workplace safety issue. It's had the power to require masks since Nixon's day. Also, there could be conditions placed on businesses that received Covid relief money, depending on how those agreements were worded;
  3. The economy isn't on life support. It's doing just fine, actually. Unemployment is still going down, inflation has been mostly limited to industries still being affected by the pandemic, GDP is still rising and the stock markets are all in record territory. That claim might work with the rubes but it's likely to make everybody else feel pretty good about their financial situations not being affected by it.

Paywall, again, so I didn't read the article but I thought the idea in the tweet was interesting.



For the Trumpies, no, "collectivism" doesn't mean socialism. It means a feeling of everybody being in this thing together. You're forgiven if you didn't recognize it, though. This country hasn't had it in 60 years, except for about a week in 2001.

30,000 Covid deaths in August. Almost all were intentional. The rest were collateral damage in a narcissistic, infantile culture war. #Sad.

And now the "father" has died. Five kids orphaned by their parents' willful ignorance. Pray for the kids.

Third one of these I've seen today, not counting the 5th talk radio host in 4 weeks. I have to wonder if the purpose is to honor the people or to hold them up as examples. Responsible and irresponsible people will read them entirely differently.

Rhode Island announces that people who lose their jobs over vaccine mandates won't be eligible for unemployment. As it should be. =D>

Interesting numbers. And a couple go against stereotype or what you might expect.
Asians near 100%
More Hispanics than Whites
More men than women
Atheists!

The colors are exaggerated in the map on the right (they aren't that much better) but otherwise it's accurate.

Sort of going along with your publishing those who anti-vaxxers who have (in the words of this sites creator):

Nominees have made public declaration of their anti-mask, anti-vax, or Covid-hoax views, followed by admission to hospital for Covid. The Award is granted upon the nominee's release from their Earthly shackles.

We have the Herman Cain Award
