Anyone defending unmasked gatherings supports blatantly ignoring the World Health Organization and killing people to defend a system of beliefs. cnbc.com/2021/06/25/del…
If our pandemic strategy was based on SCIENCE, we wouldn’t double down when things aren’t working. If this involved SCIENCE, we would be carefully keeping data & keeping the public informed. Instead of disseminating disease, we would control it. That is not what’s happening here.
What is happening in this country goes beyond “pandemic fatigue.” These performative unmasked gatherings are sick. Our culture is sick. Children are dying. Pregnant women are dying. Babies are dying. THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS ARE DYING EACH DAY. None of this is normal.
Anytime you hear people making promises about your survival odds, silently add “For now” to the end of the sentence. Allowing the rapidly mutating virus to spread uncontrollably obviously means it will rapidly mutate—which is why people are dying in 2 days instead of 3 weeks.
And while we are choosing to ignore the vaccine-resistant variants because it “isn’t anywhere close to being dominant” please be assured it will not ignore us.

While folks are running around pretending the pandemic is over & the future is shining bright, there are young & middle aged American adults who are so sick from LongCovid, they already made peace with death. People are writing their own obituaries. The disconnect is so ghastly.
This young woman wrote her own obituary before she died of LongCovid. Then the US unmasked. charlotteobserver.com/news/state/nor… Image
Heidi Ferrer’s loved ones have been trying to warn us too. No one is exempt from this hell.

For almost 30 years, we’ve known our food chain is in danger. The below article is from 2018:

“This waning energy suggests that top consumers could be left with dwindling food resources under climate change.”

The future is here. We are doing nothing. wordpress.futurism.com/marine-food-we… ImageImageImageImage
“Human-caused warming has led to an ‘almost complete loss of stability’ in the system that drives Atlantic Ocean currents, a new study has found — raising the worrying prospect that this critical aquatic ‘conveyor belt’ could be close to collapse.” seattletimes.com/nation-world/a…
(Actually, we have probably known for longer than that, but I have only been alive for 30 years and some change.)

BACK TO SCHOOL: As we head into fall and winter, touch base with your friends who can hook you up with an ECMO machine. If you don’t have any of those friends, Godspeed.

As more resources are required to stay alive, those without access will die.
Now we know why people are looking for ECMO machines.
We all realize there aren’t very many ECMO machines, right? I’m hearing there are ZERO available ECMO machines in western NY. Most machines are owned by private contractors. The good news is, variants kill people in like 2 days, so the suffering will be brief.

We seem to think we are going to quietly kill off a bunch of people and no one is going to ask questions later.
The dress should have read:

“Covid Is Coming To Kill Us All. We Are Unmasked, But Only Because We Are Rich, And Able To Purchase Our Survival. Godspeed, Poors.” theguardian.com/us-news/2021/s…
NO QUARTER. This is absolutely abhorrent.

On the same day we learn the Mu variant has been reported in all 50 states, the Met Gala must go on.

2,436 cases have been detected in the US, but we are doing almost no sequencing. newsweek.com/mu-variant-whi…
SARS-CoV-2 sequencing by country, as of August 23:

Australia: 55.7%
Iceland: 50.5%
New Zealand: 46.4%
UK: 11%
Japan: 6%

US: 2.1%

Recommended sequencing sample sizes to appropriately monitor for variants range from 5%-30% of cases. healthaffairs.org/doi/10.1377/hb…
Mu has been in the US since at least July. It doesn’t seem to be disappearing, but I guess there’s still time?
