KTLA TV reported today that to achieve Herd Immunity, the population would need to be 80% fully vaccinated. As of July 21, 2021, their Digital Staff's numbers show my county as 45.80% partially vaccinated. My county is huge, but has a much lower population than Los Angeles County does. In the United States, figures released this week show that children account for 1/5 or 20% of all the new cases. (I think all the info for my county is from July 21, 2021.)
Per KTLA's site RE: the State of California: "There have been 4,363,257 cases of COVID-19 in California. The population of this region is 39,148,760. That's 11,145 cases per 100,000 people." And "There were 11,920 newly reported cases of COVID-19 on September 02, 2021, in California. Over time, new cases indicate how fast the virus is spreading in a community. 7-Day Average: 14,147 Newly Reported Cases. There have been 65,596 reported deaths related to COVID-19 in California."
A lot of people in my county live here and commute to Los Angeles County to work. Where I work during Tax Season it is just a couple miles to the border between my county and Los Angeles County.
Updated Lincoln: "A house divided against itself, cannot stand. Except Texas, Fuck Texas"
I was born in Texas. I wonder if they took their Confederate Flag down. If they do, will they have to rename their amusement park "Five Flags Over Texas?" Six Flags Over Texas opened in 1961 and acquired Magic Mountain (now Six Flags Magic Mountain) in 1979, according to Wikipedia.
Oh, look! As of 2017, all they fly is The American Flag. Nope, it is still Six Flags Over Texas. I wonder what chrestus thinks about this.
Investigative Reporting A Day Late And A Dollar Short by Mare
So much misinformation peddled by TV backed by government about Covid. Being vaccinated stops you getting it and passing it on. Not true. I can understand their messaging to encourage people to get jabbed. But it's still propaganda. Where does this end? If you was to question this on a YouTube channel you would be closed down. Freedom of speech? If you tolerate this then your children will be next. And they are now jabbing kids against medical advice (JCVI). Scary times.
No vaccine is invincible, no scientist knows everything. No cure works for everyone. My OCD used to make me worry and cry all the time. Then, I started living in today, this minute. All these old people issues that keep coming up for me made me realize that my life is finite and I better start living it.
One thing I have done since I found out what a snake pit the internet can be years ago, is if I want real information I need to go to websites that end in .org before I start panicking. One of my sisters would ask me...did you check it on Snopes? when I freaked out about some misinformation being shoved in people's faces by multiple sources. I never got into that, but I developed my own nonsense geiger counter. The more versions of a story I hear, the more I think it is bullshit. I keep my mind open and just collect data, which sometimes gels into facts. Eventually, that is.
The scientific method does not not preclude that better information will supplant what was previously thought. Vaccines work and masks work. Are they an invincible shield? No. 80% - 90% of those hospitalized in the US are not vaccinated. Well over 90% of the deaths. Some people's immune systems make them highly vulnerable even after being vaccinated, and they will die if exposed.
Here in Eugene, one worker at an assisted living facility did not get the shot, infected half of the residents and at least one has died so far. This is why mandates are the only way we get out of this. Get the shot or quit your job, if you can infect children, the elderly and/or your co-workers.
I sit and think of everything, then I wonder where I've been.
I wish therr were more aggressive use of mandates without the fucking bullshit religious exemption. Others dont need to die when one can help prevent it just as we dont permit drunk driving even if you feel spiritually inclined. We have requirements for basic vaccinations in many states for schools for a good reason. I cant stand and flip off every time I drive by a unmask our kids sign. As if the teachers and their elderly relatives associates etc should risk death for your shitty family who doesn't give a fuck about them or anything other than pseudoscience bullshit to pretend mask wearing is harmful.

miles getting the shot does not stop you getting it and passing it on. It just stops you getting really ill if you get it. You can't pick and choose your propaganda. You sound like Trump and his drinking bleach bullshit. Sorry to be harsh but it's true.
blue, please, stop it. Are you and miles posting from Russia. It sure sounds like it. Again look to the facts not the hysterical sideshow. Yes a lot more needs to be done but you are getting distracted. And that's the plan. Fighting amongst ourselves whilst the the big issues go unchallenged. Divide and rule, it never fails.
Fuck me. Stop this bullshit. I'm doubled jabbed and waiting for my booster. That is to protect me. Stop this shit about people who won't or more importantly can't get jabbed. Stop demonising them. They are putting themselves at risk not us who have been jabbed.
