    I’m pretty sure there has never been a Nobel Prize winner named Jumbo.
    Clearly, the Nobel Committee has an anti-Jumbo discriminatory bias. We should render the award to meaninglessness.

    I actually don't mind paying people to get vaccinated. Any additional vaccinations would help because it would mean less unvaccinated people taking up resources in the hospitals. I think it should have been done federally at the beginning of the pandemic and the amount paid could have decreased the longer someone waits past their eligibility date. Unfortunately, there's too much misinformation out there and people are either extremely selfish, extremely ignorant, or likely both. I agree that it is a moral and civic obligation to get vaccinated.

    That said, vaccination as a lone strategy was never going to be enough and it makes me sad that everything we see today in the media and said by the government are just rationalizations and excuses to not do anything.
    • It can't happen here in the USA, it's gonna stay in China
    • It's just the flu, bro
    • We're already near/at herd immunity
    • It's endemic
    • We just have to learn to live with it
    • It's mild (another way to say it's just the flu)
    These all mean the same thing: Let's all get back to the same lifestyle we had in 2019 and ignore the pandemic without needing to do anything else

    The fact people either working at or affiliated with the CDC went on their own personal tirades in the media after having their opinions rebuffed on say, boosters smacks of a major violation in the chain of command.

    I read the article you linked to at the bottom of the previous page, but I sort of resented the conscientious objector comparison because the vast majority of anti-vaxxers' fervor is not based on their conscience. They're caught in a filter bubble that causes intellectual isolation, period. Maybe conscientious objectors to Vietnam were also caught in a filter bubble. There's likely some truth to that.

    My hospital system is incredibly overwhelmed right now from COVID cases. More than half of hospitalizations and deaths are among fully vaccinated (probably about 55-60%), which is probably due to the fact that the county is like 87% fully vaccinated.

    The problem is that because the CDC doesn't want to update the definition of "fully vaccinated" to include a booster shot, a lot of the people who are getting sick enough to be hospitalized and/or die are elderly who haven't had any boosters since their second dose a year ago. They probably don't want to update the definition because if they change it, it makes the US seem even more sad than it already is - making the "fully vaccinated" population only about 37% nationwide.
    That sucks, trapper. It's all such crap.

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes YES. Read this. It's a short article, but a really good one. I couldn't agree more.

    The unvaccinated should, in the interests of fairness, take on a financial burden as a moral equivalent to vaccination; an “alternative service” option much like those who have in our nation’s history sought exemptions to military service through conscientious objection.

    as for not big game that was at least the 4th time he’s lost as a home favorite in the playoff that I can recall off the top of my head. Giants, 49ers twice, Bucs.
