A Boston ICU filled up yesterday and hospital staffers spent nine hours trying to find a bed somewhere else for a Covid-19 patient

A couple of dispatches from the Covid-19 front lines.

Where are those animals who spent all spring, summer, and fall telling us it is all a big hoax?

If there’s another Super Happy Fun America rally I hope that something truly terrible happens to everyone attending it.

Whishing ill on people of any stripe does nothing but create bad karma. Surely you can do something more constructive with your thoughts.

Surely you can do something more constructive than yours than preachy, sanctimonious, misspelled comments.

It amazes me that there are people defending the wish that "something truly terrible" happens to people. Are we supposed to believe those are normal thoughts?

Bleating the same ignorant schtick to the same people by the same channels. I don't actually know if they believe their own bullshit, or if they're just cynical assholes who are happy parroting propaganda from their own tribe. In a way, it doesn't matter, because we have to treat them the same way regardless.

As to your second point, we can at least take some cold solace in knowing that the GOP is overwhelmingly made up of older men, and their enthusiasm for meeting up in big unmasked groups in the middle of a pandemic is killing them off fast enough that it might create a measurable demographic blip and political impact.

Not the major players, it isn't. They have only the best of care and they're surviving in spite of their appalling choices.

that these assholes, regardless of their age(s) who insist on not wearing masks and meeting closely in large groups, are sickening and killing off other people as well.

As a friend of mine pointed out this afternoon, we don't have to like those people--neither she nor I does--but to keep ourselves safe we need to at least try to keep them safe too.

Stay home! I'm hearing so many heartbreaking stories. Someone who met up with a friend shortly before Thanksgiving, then saw his father for the holiday - friend had COVID-19, gave it to him and he gave it to his father. Friend and father died.

If you meet with people, you are risking the lives of others, not just yourself! Please give your loved ones the holiday present of not getting them sick or killing them or those they love.

It's a small wonder that the Covid-19 virus pandemic is running so rampant and out of control here in the United States at large. Sweden, btw, has a rather similar problem.
