Democrats: Defund the police? You woke progressives care more about ideology than winning
Also Democrats: It’s more important that we preserve individual freedom than stop this pandemic going on forever

“Gli appelli a non vaccinarsi sono inviti a morire, oppure a far morire: se non ti vaccini, contagi, muori, o fai contagiare e fai morire. Senza vaccinazione si deve chiudere tutto, di nuovo.” (Mario Draghi)
Avrei bisogno di una laurea in bon ton letterario per commentare un tale scempio senza sembrare un orso infuriato.
Non che si possa aggiungere molto rispetto alla chiarezza dell’originale, solo che a volte vale la pena per i superstiti dell’illusione. Tutto è così esplicito che si sente la puzza (della canna) del gas. 
Uno Stato che si deresponsabilizza, incolpa, accusa, terrorizza, mente, manipola, censura, separa e nega è…morto. 
É già morto.
Come qualcuno ha ormai detto in giro: non è più una questione di sanità, è una questione ideologica. 
Siamo alle ultime scelte.
TUTTE in mano a ogni singolo individuo esistente. I tuoi capi se ne sono tirati fuori da un pezzo, se non ti era chiaro, ora lo sai.

The people who pretend covid is just "a bad flu" don't understand how deadly some flu strains can be and how medical intervention and vaccines are pretty much the only reason the US and Europe don't see hundreds of thousands of flu deaths every year.

The covid situation in Indonesia is really bad right now, and I have yet to see any posts about it. I haven't found many places to donate at the moment, but PLEASE add on if you know of any.

Evolution!
https://newsroom.uw.edu/news/epsilon-variant-mutations-contribute-covid-immune-evasion
Three mutations in the Epsilon coronavirus spike protein dampen the neutralizing potency of antibodies induced by current vaccines or past COVID infections.
https://www.geertvandenbossche.org/post/the-chicken-and-egg-problem-which-came-first
Clearly, these guys have little understanding of the evolutionary dynamics of this virus as revealed by the current pandemic; they seem to ignore the huge impact of immune selection pressure on convergent evolution of mutations and selective adaptation of the virus to the massively rising antibody titers against spike (S) protein. If they would understand the dynamics and landscape of the evolving mutations as clearly outlined by molecular epidemiologists, they would have no choice but to conclude that the observed shift in natural selection forces is driven by mass vaccination. 
[...]
As already mentioned on multiple occasions, molecular epidemiologist have shown that population-level S protein-directed immune pressure is now driving the propagation of variants that are increasingly evolving mutations enabling resistance to S-specific antibodies (as now massively induced by the ongoing vaccination campaigns). As more infectious variants bind to the cellular Ace-2 receptor with enhanced binding strength, the Ace-2 receptor more readily outcompetes S-specific antibodies for binding to these variants. Consequently, these variants gain a competitive advantage when replicating in individuals who exert strong S-directed immune pressure on the virus (i.e., in vaccinees!), especially upon incorporating additional mutations (within the RBD) that prevent direct binding of S-specific vaccinal antibodies. Variants that are increasingly resistant to S-specific antibodies (e.g., delta and delta plus variant) can only adapt to the population provided the S-directed immune pressure is widespread in the population. This is, of course, the case if larger parts of the population get vaccinated and when vaccinees can easily transmit the variant due to relaxation of infection prevention measures.
[...]
So, not the non-vaccinated individuals but the vaccinees are now responsible for driving Sars-CoV-2 evolutionary dynamics. It’s also important to note that non-vaccinated people will not contribute to natural selection as they will either eliminate the virus (thanks to their innate antibodies in synergy with natural killer cells) or become susceptible to Covid-19 disease due to suppression of their innate immune defense. Short-term shedding of low concentrations of viral variants by asymptomatically infected, non-vaccinated people is a direct consequence of shifting natural immune selection forces that are increasingly coming into play as a result of mass vaccination. This will ultimately put the vaccinees in much worse shape than the non-vaccinated as the latter will still be able to rely on their innate Abs.

I CANNOT BELIEVE BEING IN LOS ANGELES- PEOPLE ARE MAKING IT A BIG DEAL TO WEAR MASKS!!!!! IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT!!!!!!!!! WEAR YOUR MASKS AND PLEASE RESPECT OTHERS DAM!!!!!!!!
I cannot believe even though the delta variant is on a surge right now and L.A basically told us that the mask mandate is in practice, people are crying about it??????
Like wearing a mask is worst then catching a virus that can possibly kill you and others.
I can't believe people's thinking skills right now. JUST WEAR A MASK.

Making this its own post
Hey folks?
Even if you're not going to get as badly sick when you're vaccinated, you need to take being sick seriously because YOU'RE TEACHING THE VIRUS HOW TO FIGHT THE VACCINE.
YOU ARE CONTRIBUTING TO ITS EVOLUTION BY NOT WEARING A MASK AND NOT QUARANTINING WHEN YOU GET SICK

Qué milagro que llevemos casi año y medio de pandemia y no haya habido ni un solo contagio en un centro de trabajo. What a miracle that we have been in a pandemic for almost a year and a half and there has not been a single contagion in a workplace.

Мне говорят - иди колись и все дела.
Неколотым ты будешь не у дел.
Но для чего нужны ещё антитела,
Когда и так я состою из антител?
Боюсь, что точно также и страна
Всё не нащупает безумию предел,
Хоть со времён Большевиков она
Буквально состоит из анти-дел.
########################
They tell me - go ahead and get a jab
Or you’ll be out of work and with a warden.
But what are extra antibodies for
When am I already made up of antibodies?
I'm afraid with country is the same.
Bloody insanity keep raising a new bid.
Although since the Bolshevik’s invasion
It literally consist of anti-deeds.

Reminder that we are very much still IN THE MIDDLE of a pandemic. Please wear your mask and get vaccinated.
