I left my clinical position at the right time. My empathy is spent. Our hospitals are, once again, overwhelmed. We're at our limit for admits. My friend just told me she's been dealing with the anti-vaxxers who test positive and then demand the antibody treatment, only to find out there isn't anymore. We're almost out, so they're being rationed. These idiots are willing to get the treatment but not the preventative vaccine. Dumbasses. If they're not scared of covid, they should come volunteer as patient care techs.

In response to a confession. That stat seemed low to me, so I just did a quick Google search. 91% of Democrats are fully vaccinated, while 60% of Republicans have received one shot (couldn't find how many are fully vaxxed). The "reddist" tenth of the US saw COVID death rates 6 times higher than the "bluest" tenth. Counties where Trump received more than 70% of the vote experienced an even higher average of Covid-19 death. By contrast, Covid-19 deaths in heavily Biden counties and swing counties did not rise over the past two months, despite the nationwide surge in cases. Article was from December 17, 2021, so pretty recent. Honestly, just let these people die, so the rest of us can stop dealing with this shit.

49% of anti-vaxxers are Trump supporters.

In response to a confession. I mean...obviously they weren't asking to leave *during* the tornado. I would imagine they wouldn't have a legal leg to stand on if that can be used in court to support the candle factory's opinion.

I did hear about the candle factory doing that. I'm not saying the candle factory didn't exploit the shit out of their workers and treat them like garbage, and Lord knows Amazon does too, but leaving, going outside, or driving is literally the worst thing you can do in a tornado. The safest places were the same places they took shelter. Unfortunately, those storms were just too strong. I don't think there was any place they could have gone that would have saved them. Now whether they should have had people come in at all that night, given the weather warnings, is a different story. And the candle factory's and Amazon's cell phone policy should absolutely be questioned. But keeping them in the factories and taking shelter was the safest thing.

Did ya'll hear about the candle factory boss threatening to fire workers for leaving? Amazon too (although even less surprising from them.) Seriously, anyone who wonders why the rates of mental illness are going through the roof, start here. Society is being made impossibly unfriendly to live in unless you are Jeff Beelzebub.

The devastation in Kentucky is incredible. Maybe that's what happens when resident of Kentucky keep voting for climate change deniers who oppose any legislation to combat it. Oh, and since the deeply red state also hates socialism, I'm sure they won't take any aid from the federal government. They just need to pull themselves up by the bootstraps.

In response to a confession. This was my post about the family with COVID. Well now ANOTHER friend, with no connection to the first, has just been admitted to the hospital with COVID. And SURPRISE! She's not vaccinated. No sympathy whatsoever.

An aquaintance's entire family (pretty much) contracted COVID. Her husband, father in law, mother in law, and sister in law have all died in the last week and a half. They are all conservative, anti-vaxxers. She just posted a Go Fund Me to help wth expenses. It's taking every ounce of my being to not make a smart ass remark.

Anybody who wants a laugh, google Boris Johnson Peppa Pig. The prime minister of the UK ladies and gentleman. I think he might be a bigger joke than Trump.
