You spent the last four years suggesting that moral equivalence arguments weren't a thing too. 🙂

Lying is just the tip of the iceberg.

Not on topic, but worth sharing (I feel)

The day last March when everything went down, schools closed, NBA cancelled their season, etc, I was at work with an extremely religious, loudmouth, "this is just a harmless flu" type of guy. While discussing everything that went down that day and not knowing what was going to happen, I said something along the lines of "Are we not going to be allowed to go shopping? Go to church? Go to.." He cut me off and forcefully said "I'll shoot anyone who tells me I can't go to church and worship!"

I was dumbfounded. I wanted so badly to respond with "Well yeah, that's what Jesus would want you to do, obviously." but decided to bite my tongue.

I would have said and have said that to lots of people. I don't think Covid caused it, but it certainly exacerbated it. Christian nationalism is real and toxic.

I can’t believe you didn’t say it. You know him better than me, but one of my favorite activities is reminding people how stupid they sound.

Switching topics, it looks like Ohio’s Vax-a-Million program is working. Since the announcement vaccinations are up 26% and over 1 million people are registered for the drawing.
I’m in. It’s still better odds than the lottery.

mmmm... I’m not sure those who reside in Pa are eligible...

Only Ohio residents are eligible. Even if they got their shot out of state. So LG's son should be eligible. Other kids away at college who were vaccinated at/near school but who officially still reside in Ohio.

Oof. Bad luck.

I for one still plan to wear a mask in crowded public spaces, even once fully vaccinated, at least over the next few months. Doesn't really bother me any, it's such a minor thing *shrug*.

As of Thursday, all 50 states are below the 25 per 100k 7 day average, meaning none of the US states are "red" right now. I don't think that's been true since I started watching that map last summer.

This is the best the country as a whole has looked for sure. PA has a lower infection rate than at any point since this began! Let the dry jumping commence.

I'll be impressed when my county gets under 10 per 100k. Or even 5. Vaccination has stalled pretty bad here in Flori-duh.

Say what you want about California, but we are currently killing it (or not killing it as the case may be). 3.2 cases per 100k, over 54% vaccinations started, less than 1% positivity. My county is exceptional: less than 2.0 cases per 100k, 0.5% positivity, 65.5% vaccinations started. It's actually probably the safest place to take off your mask, but we're still doing so through June 15th. It might be overkill, but you can't argue with the results.

Registration for Ohio's first Vax-a-Million drawing is closed. From the State today:

Registration for the first Vax-a-Million drawing, which will be Wednesday, May 26 at 7:29 pm ET, closed last night. After a data scrub to verify registrations and remove duplicates, 2,758,470 Ohioans have registered for the $1 million drawing. 104,386 students aged 12-17 have registered for the scholarship drawing. The campaign has generated 74 million page views of the Vax-a-Million website and generated free earned media for first 7 days of approximately $15 million.

There has been a statewide 16% increase in vaccinations when comparing the 6 day periods previous and after the announcement of the giveaway. In some counties, there has been an increase of more than 100%. The state is also seeing an increase across age groups, but particularly among 16 and 17-year old Ohioans, with a 94% increase. Among 18 and 19 year olds, there has been a 46% increase and in the 20-49 age group, a 55% increase in vaccinations.

It certainly appears that the lottery is doing what was intended. The $15 million in free media sounds a bit low to me...but so be it. I assume Ohio was pushing this heavily in social media campaigns?

I imagine every TV news outlet in the state picked it up, plus teases and promos before those newscasts... a lot of free publicity regardless.

Yesterday, the US hit 50% of all adults (18+) vaccinated.

If you extrapolate the current rates to July 1, I don't think they'll hit the 70% of adults that they're hoping for. Check my math on that.

I think this whole virus thing will be gone by Easter. Churches will be filled! It will be like a miracle.

I'm hoping we can reach 70% by Festivus. You just can't maintain 6 feet of distance in the Feats of Strength. And Don't get me started on the Airing of Grievances when everyone has to be masked.
