    What's might happen to unvaccinated people who choose to avoid the shot is that hospitals and insurance companies will not cover their covid hospitalizations fees anymore...they'll have to pay 50k for a treatment and oxygen as opposed to 1300 copay for vaccinated insured patients in some cases....just like seat belt fines and littering fines...the way to address this issue is through their pocketbooks...doctors and nurses are sick of this shit already. I heard a talk about this from my wife's Taiwanese foreign world news panel. I think it would spur some incentive to get the shots
    and it sucks that people can be so stubborn

    Really? Do you have a credible link to back that up?

    You're a bright guy so I'm gonna take this as some crafty sarcasm. Also, the capitalized word 'UNVACCINATED' is a hint at the sarcasm. Well, played.

    Veterinarians are having trouble treating livestock because covidiots are buying up animal dewormer and ingesting it. Rachel Maddow got curious about origins of Ivermectin grift and traced it to pro Trump group that calls itself America's Frontline Doctors. Spokesperson says ovarian cysts are caused by women having sex with demons in their sleep, that all vaccines are bad because they are made from alien DNA, and that we are ruled by reptilians who look human but aren't. Also Jews. For a fee you can have an online consultation. They will ask if you prefer hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin and for another fee will send it to you... maybe. Lots of complaints about nondelivery. Or just go to feed store.

    Florida governor DeathSantis has refused funds in Clovid stimulus to provide free breakfast and lunch in school because children might make a habit of it. Yes, eating is habit forming. Poor children must go hungry before getting Covid.

    But he is so pro life!

    Gibberish. No different than demanding customers have abortions to protect us from overpopulation which is scientifically proven to be the #1 cause of disease spread, pollution, war, crime...

    No tests for COVID-19, or the flu, or the common cold have ever been created, nor is it likely that any ever will be.

    Learn even just that much basic and rudimentary science and you will be better off for the effort.

    Well, by continuing to make the same mistakes of history, over & over again, we are not evolving in a way that's sustainable for a good future for anyone, or thing , but maybe bugs.

    You must take a lot of pilates classes or maybe you're an instructor.

    Putting aside politics, do people really want to pay hundreds of dollars for the right to pay for ridiculously overpriced food and drink and wait in lines for food and the bathroom while also having to wear a mask? That is not worth it to me and I'm vaxed as well and owned season tics to both pro teams in town. Seems to me if I was concerned with getting sick, I would avoid the activity that might get me sick, instead of expecting others to... but call ME crazy.

    I don't buy the food, i'm there for hoops & supporting my team. It's always an honor to get to go to Blazers games. Wearing a mask is trivial.

    But i'll tell you this. Every time some asshole sneezes, or coughs into the air without covering up, it violates the rights of common decency. That pisses the HELL out of me. And it happens almost daily around me. Yesterday at the gas station, the attendant , no mask, turned his head and sneezed, full throttle, uncovered, towards the ground, as if that was gonna do anything. WTF!
