Who said ALL hospitals are being overrun? Hospitals are being overrun in large hard hit areas...that is just fact.

Keep your kids home. That is the only way they'll be safe from Covid. (kids do spread Covid to other kids, btw )

Probably a bunch of people who have bubble wrapped themselves inside of their homes for the past year and half are now venturing out again and finding that their immune systems have been trashed and need to be built back up again.

Do you cop this same attitude for the flu? It's more dangerous to your kids on a per-person basis than Covid.

If you don't, does that make you a bad mom? Or just a normal human being?

I'm not buying into that

Most nurses are vaccinated – so why do people think health workers are vaccine hesitant?

But Laura Denstman, a nurse in Maryland, also worries that the amplification of fringe views makes it seem like health workers don’t trust the vaccines – which is far from the truth, she said.

“One report of a nurse refusing to be vaccinated and all of a sudden it’s ‘a majority’ of nurses,” she said. “And sure, that scares the public.”

I don't know what's more dangerous, the vaccine itself, or the fact that in today's world we still have people who think it's ok to force things on others. What's next? Where does it stop? It doesn't.

Who can honestly say that they trust in Big Pharma? That they trust in the data that Big Pharma is reporting? And Big Pharma has liability protection? How many times have they said that something is perfectly healthy, only to find out years later that they got it completely wrong? No thanks.

Here is a bright idea. How about coming up with more options for people instead of this two sizes fits all approach? How about treating people like people instead of cattle? How about creating options that people want, rather than promoting fear and ostracizing people?

This is a joke about hospitals being overrun. They are being overrun on purpose. They get paid much more for a covid patient so, they are the priority to be hospitalized and they are are more likely to be called covid as we have seen when and if they die. Then they cynically go in front of the cameras with sob stories. I know that nurses are overwhelmed due to staffing shortages, mostly caused by moneysaving measures by administrators.
