Another perspective on this. Nurses getting abused and threatened by covidiots.

Nurses quitting due to "compassion fatigue" when dealing with those who are sick by choice. There is absolutely no other comparable situation in this country's history that I know of.

The surreal lives of Arkansas nurses fighting Covid-19 inside the hospital and denial on the outside

Video is called: Nurse explains why she doesn't like the term 'healthcare hero'

"Nurses were really the symbol for this pandemic and all of the hate was centered around us -- the hate, the fear, the respect, all of it," Sunny said. A lot of nurses have PTSD from 2020, she said, "And now we're having people come in and look us in the face and be like, 'No I didn't get the vaccine, and now I'm sick."

No, I'm not suggesting that patients should be turned away, but when people see or hear about this kind of shit, I find the sentiment to be understandable. And if too many healthcare workers quit because of burnout or compassion fatigue, or just sick of the bullshit, it's a guarantee that patients WILL be turned away, though it probably won't be the ones who deserve it.

It doesn't surprise me. My mother just spoke with an old friend.

She and her husband and her elderly mother all got it, and were all fully vaxxed. The mother got extremely sick, and was hospitalized, I believe in the ICU, though she fortunately survived.

All the real world evidence that I've seen suggests that Delta is highly transmissable, even to vaccinated people.

Everyone can do what they want, but I personally feel like not masking, at this point, is insane.

This is a really pernicious form of voter intimidation.

Threatening people with a felony conviction and years of imprisonment if they make an unintentional mistake in voting. Isnít there already a woman in Texas serving a 5 year term for an honest mistake?

And I wonder which kind of people are more likely to be convicted and have the book thrown at them?

This could potentially have an incredibly chilling effect on voting, especially among groups more likely to be targeted.

I'm surprised people aren't making more noise about these laws.

Other countries have gone completely over the edge. Many times, and within living memory.

It's the height of magical thinking, or belief in American exceptionalism to think that such things can't happen here.

I worry about total societal breakdown, and the possibility of unspeakable violence happening here. Just like has happened in so many other places.

Wish I could get my hands on some of that.

At the current rate of progress, I'll be dead before they come up with an effective, commercially available, treatment for my kind of depression/anxiety disorder.
