  • In June 2020, Ron Klain, who is now Biden's chief of staff, was saying that 20K COVID cases a day was a sign of Trump's "failed, feckless response."
    Almost 3 months into Biden's term, US is averaging about 70K cases/day.

      I cannot believe there is a person on earth today that still attempts to compare Covid to the flu. I mean, this is ignorance to the point of criminal.

      And no documented cases of asymptomatic spread? LMFAO!

      People like this, acting like an expert in a field he couldn't possibly understand in 3 lifetimes, disseminating information as if public health guidance, makes a great case for why the Internet should be destroyed. Too many morons are given too large a platform.
      I think comparing C19 to the flu is the smart thing to do. You can compare and contrast their similarities and differences. Even Fauci compared it to the flu a year ago when testifying before Congress.

        • Definition of herd immunity




          : a reduction in the risk of infection with a specific communicable disease (such as measles or influenza) that occurs when a significant proportion of the population has become immune to infection (as because of previous exposure or vaccination) so that susceptible individuals are much less likely to come in contact with infected individuals

            Investigators: State research shows white, rural conservative Tennesseans most likely to not trust COVID-19 vaccine

            “I hear a lot of people say that they believe the numbers are lies,” said Dunaway. “They believe the numbers aren’t real. So, that’s a lot of people up here.”

            Tipton County residents are not alone in their skepticism.

            The governor’s office recently hired a Knoxville-based marketing agency to find out who’s not getting vaccinated and why, so the state can try to “overcome the barriers associated with those who are rejecting or hesitant to get the COVID-19 vaccine.”

            The agency interviewed more than 1,000 Tennesseans in March and April and found “white, conservative rural Tennesseans are the least willing to accept the vaccine and seem to have planted their heels in the sand.”

            Tipton County is rural, majority white and conservative. Most voters chose President Trump in the 2020 election.
            “And it hasn’t helped with this election. So many of them did not trust the way the election went,” said Dunaway. “So now it’s like ‘you want us to trust the government some more?’”

            Trust is a big factor in vaccine hesitancy, the research shows, with “white respondents for the most part claiming to trust no one!”

            “There’s a fragility of trust issue that people are picking and choosing where they’re getting their information,” said Baker McCool, EMS program director for Dyersburg State Community College. “Plus, it’s a heavily politicized issue nationwide.”

            On Saturdays, McCool leads mass vaccination events at the college’s Tipton County campus in Covington.

            On April 17, McCool had 300 Moderna vaccine doses ready. Only 45 people showed up.

            While polls nationwide show most people are willing to get the COVID-19 vaccine, when it comes to political ideology, Republicans are still less willing to get vaccinated.

            The trend isn’t new. A paper published by the National Institutes of Health said in 2018 that “trust in science and trust in government is usually lower for conservatives than liberals.”
            The Trump Effect persists; confuse, divide, and propagandize.

            What remains is a political party that has been made dumber. And guys like myself are left out in the cold listening to the "other side" more than they ever have in their lives.

            I will not be a member of a political demographic whose worldview is based off conspiracies, fear, and ignorance.

            • Wrong. You see a conclusion and work your way back. That's just wrong.

              First, rural Tennessee is pretty much all white anyway. And, hold on to your hats.....rural folks tend to be the most conservative bunch around. I wonder why? Hint: Not because of Trump. They already were conservative.

              Are you really going to fret over these people not wanting to get the vaccine? Hell, a lot of them rarely see anyone else. Why should they take the vaccine?

              Keep telling them it's for the greater good. Keep TELLING them anything you want.....see how that works out.

                Then you will be a member of arrogant, disconnected, one rule, professional student, bleeding heart failures political demographic. (See how that wokes?) Congrats.

                  I don't think so. That's why I'm on an island.

                  I would prefer to be a member of the logical, science-believing, compassionate, accountable, hard-working, law-abiding, inclusive (the real meaning) demographic.

                    White Trump voters are far and away the biggest group of anti-vaxxers out there. This is not up for debate. There's a reason Trump got "HIS" vaccine in privacy and never disclosed it until much later... and it's a despicable one.

                    Back to spinning for you.

                    Or you could just accept the facts and offer solutions.

                    And you better believe I'm going to fret over failure to reach herd immunity amidst the most dangerous pandemic in over a hundred years because of ignorance, lies, and politics.

                      The one who believes in Science so much, they say that children can't go to school even though the Science says they can, but their AFT Union says they can't so the CDC bows down to them? The one who believe in Science so much that even though it says that vaccinated people can be around other vaccinated people without masks, but they (President Biden) wear a mask anyway.

                      You are really logical and a believer in Science, Clod. LOL

                          Who's "we"? You sure as **** aren't talking about people who still support Trump. Those are the brainwashed living dead. If there's another camp, my ears are open.

                          • From this map it appears that major metro areas of the country where population is more dense seem to have above average vaccinations. Isn't that kind of the point? Who cares if billy bob in rural arkansas doesn't get his vaccine when the vast majority of people in major population centers have theirs? Again, Cold you are spreading false narratives and disinformation just like your heroes at CNN and MSDNC.

                            https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/...ine-doses.html

                            The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Tuesday about 147.9 million people have received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, including about 106.2 million people who have been fully vaccinated by Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccine or the two-dose series made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.

                            More than 56 percent of adults have received at least one shot.

                              It is stunning to see that as we hit over 50% of the population allowed to get the vax and add in trying to now spread out to less densely populated areas that vax pace is slowing.

                              STUNNING.
