Nancy Pelosi made millions while in Congress and makes better returns on stock trades than Warren Buffet. I don't see lefties calling her corrupt. The criticism for that comes from the right, not the left. The left generally ignores it.

literal lol. it's genuinely adorable that you think this is true.

Here's an economist saying it - https://www.independent.org/aboutus/person_detail.asp?id=383

i was referring to your claim that the american left doesn't call her a corrupt, corporate rat-fuck stooge.

Still not as good as the Bills performance.

you're right, it wasn't as good — it was 42069 times better.

imagine watching a selectively edited clip from an interview instead of just watching the interview.

This is what I mean. You've replied 3 times now, asked a bunch of accusatory questions and not one of them is "Are you feeling better?".  >o<
Why do you expect concern from others when you show so little concern for others?

the best part is the way he manages to put "who cares if other people die, i'm fine," and "why isn't anyone concerned about me" in the same fucking breath.

you present a plot of all-cause mortality over a 50-year age difference over some time period. the young end of that group is least likely to be vaccinated, and least likely to die of any cause. the old end of the group is most likely to be vaccinated, and most likely to die of any cause.

see if you can connect the rest of the dots on your own. (hint: population-level statistics do not track individual outcomes)

silly tweet

if you have to lie to make your point, maybe it isn't a very good one.

After relatively smooth sailing through training camps in August and the first three months of the season, 106 players have tested positive the past three days. That’s more than over the previous four weeks combined (87) and not far off the six-week total (121).

there are 53 players on each nfl roster, and there are 32 teams. that's 1696 players total. 106/1696 ≈ 0.06 = 6%.

wow, 6%. so overwhelming. the nfl will probably have to close up shop now. it's such a shame that those players haven't taken some kind of miracle drug that will virtually eliminate their chances of being hospitalized. too bad.

While COVID vaccines have proven durable in terms of preventing serious illness and death, they have not fared as well in preventing infections. The vast majority of players, coaches and staff members are vaccinated. Many of this wave of infections are breakthrough cases in which the players are asymptomatic.

“Just out of breath going up the stairs but that’s every week. I had nothing, really, which was nice,” Packers tight ends coach Justin Outten, who is back after missing Sunday night’s win vs. Chicago, said on Thursday.

don't even bother to read the "required experience/skills/whatever" section of a job posting. it means literally nothing.

last night i finished watching ad astra. it really is more like ass asstra though because it is ass.

imagine if the movie contact had an even shittier, more boring ending, and that's basically what this is. brad pitt hangs out in space looking for his stupid idiot father because the solar system is going to blow up or something? then the movie rolls through two hours of every awful spaceshit trope until brad pitt finds his idiot dad who isn't an alien but just a crazy person doing crazy shit for no real reason and the movie mercifully ends.

then in the final scene the movie tries to pretend that it has a point, but since no foreshadowing of this point ever appears anywhere else in the movie, it completely fails.

the end. i give this movie pi out of tau stars.

Imperfect vaccination makes you a health hazard - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4516275/

Vaccines that let the hosts survive but do not prevent the spread of the pathogen relax this selection, allowing the evolution of hotter pathogens to occur.

nice lying.

from the abstract:

"Our data show that anti-disease vaccines that do not prevent transmission can create conditions that promote the emergence of pathogen strains that cause more severe disease in unvaccinated hosts."

covid-19 vaccines reduce transmission, and they protect you from more severe strains of the disease.

i also enjoyed this tidbit: "Our data do not demonstrate that vaccination was responsible for the evolution of hyperpathogenic strains of MDV, and we may never know for sure why they evolved in the first place."

That’s not a vaccine study. It’s not even a great virus study because it’s focus is super narrow.

i'm aware it's not a vaccine study. i've been making the argument that "i won't take the vaccine because i don't know the long-term health effects" is silly because one also does not know the long-term health effects of covid-69. this study indicates that such long-term effects are worth taking seriously.
