Actually a bit surprised they reintroduced social distancing


LOL
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Let me understand what you're trying to say. Rand Pauls wife bought between $1,000 and $15,000 in Gilead stock and he filed the proper disclosure but it wasn't transmitted properly. Now you're accusing him of voting for something that likely had no impact on this stock, and his vote was nothing more than a show of disapprobation because he was literally the only one to vote against it, but he did that because of a minimal investment in Gilead? Do you realize how dumb that is? These headlines are trying to lump together this tiny investment with the politicians who literally moved millions of dollars in investments.

IMO Rand Paul is from the most ethical people in congress, you don't need to agree with his policies, but he it very principled and ethical (I know you're going to dig up some story claiming he's not principled). When I saw the headline I was a bit taken aback, but simply reading the article shows there's literally nothing to see here and it's a blatant smear campaign.

@ExGingi might want to get his family signed up for this if it gets them all proof of vaccination, just in case photoshop breaks... :D

Stupid tweet, considering how effective it is still is against hospitalization/death.

For anyone who is at elevated risk you are correct, but the argument for everyone to get vaccinated to protect everyone else is slipping away.

Having less people in the hospital protects the people who may end up there.

Even for those who aren't at elevated risk. You have healthy people in their 30s and 40s with no risk factors dying, pathetic when it's completely preventable by society.

Having a high BMI is a risk factor.  It doesn't need to be a massive BMI.
When looking at it that way, many more young people are at higher risk than average.
And should get vaccinated.

There are people in our community who died without any risk factors at all, including high BMI.

You guys are saying the same thing. I'd venture that a huge portion of (most?) men >35 in our community have risk factors due to high BMI.

I don't think that's a reason for a vaccine mandate.

No we're not. I'm saying there were young people with normal BMI and no other risk factors who died of COVID complications R"L

Sorry - should have rephrased. You're both saying that it's a concern even for young people and that they should get vaccinated.

Btw a person who has a high BMI can still "look skinny" - so unless you know their weight and height it's hard to judge if they have a "normal BMI". (BMI is a very crude measurement)

That's me. In the right clothing you would never tag me as (clinically) "obese"!

Relatively few.
Died of covid aged 30-40   7200
US population 30-40   44,000,000
Chance of dying of covid .016%  (16/100,000)

Among ALL 30-40 yo's the risk was extremely low.
Dying in that age group without risk factors is miniscule.
