Some of my rural Trumpy conspiracy theorist family and family “friends” had a party this past Saturday — looks like at least four new Covid cases from it, one diabetic attendee already dead five days later. One of the cases is my idiot degenerate cousin who claims covid doesn’t exist and convinced the rest of the family out there to not get vaccinated. So glad I never lived in that shithole part of the country.

Prayers for Kristy Swanson please. COVIDIOTS need lots of prayers.

“Prayers for me please,” Swanson wrote in a Tweet on November 1st. “Yesterday I took an ambulance ride to the hospital. I’m still here with pneumonia, I’m on oxygen etc, all covid related of course. I’m in good spirits and in great hands.” She added, “I was just at the tail end of my Covid diagnosis when it jumped into my lungs. So they are treating me with Baricitinib & blood thinners so I don’t clot. I’m ok.”

Stick works better than the carrot.


Vaccination rates went from 65% to 99% in 2+ months. Only 120 out of 12,000 employees declined.
I was just in a meeting today with some coworkers who were claiming mandates have just made it worse. Everyone was getting their shots until the mandates came a long. Of course, they deny all evidence that they are full of shit.

Word just came down from the OPM for federal employees. Anyone not fully vaccinated by November 9th will be issued a formal letter or reprimand. If you are still not fully vaccinated by November 23 you will be suspended without pay, and if you are still not vaccinated by December 1 you will be removed from service (fired). Start the vaccination process at any time during this and it pushes everything back 6 weeks, but then it continues if you don't finish the vaccination process.

Yup... get stuck or get fired finally seemed to resonate with a lot.
More of that get stuck or get gone. Ford is mandating vaccinations for its 32,000 US salaried employees They have until Dec 8 to be fully vaccinated then, if not compliant, they get up to 30 days paid leave before adios!

And in addition to that, denial of death benefits to families of the unvaccinated is now a thing. New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (74,000 employees) is denying their death benefit of $500,000, which goes to the families of employees who die from covid, to those who die unvaccinated.

👍 I'm in favor.

Umm, I think the proton meme-streams have been crossed, between demon sperm doctor and Gates microchips, to end up at a Newsmax lunacy about "satanic marker" in COVID vaccine:

What gets me is that it seems Luciferase is a real thing.

So we've established the outer-boundaries of how much crazy is too much crazy?

Seems like Luciferase is a bad choice of name in a society like the US.
It’s Latin. Literally means “light bringer”, so it seems like an obvious choice for bio markers that glow.

Finally. The guy is a gal.
A Twitter (TWTR) spokesperson said Robinson's account was "temporarily locked for repeated violations of our Covid-19 misinformation policy."

Robinson has stated similar misinformation in the past, writing in September that if people want to avoid "taking the Mark of the Beast," then they should not get "anything that injects LUCIFERASE into your body." That tweet, as well as others that are steeped in conspiracy theories, remains on her feed.

However, several other of her recent tweets were also deleted because they violated Twitter's rules.
