    Default Masks and vaccinations work

    I'm fully vaccinated and even laminated my vax card in preparation for traveling around the US and maybe even Canada later this year.

    Less people are wearing masks where I live including me, but since the COVID pandemic has been so politicized by the previous administration*, common sense has now become "controversial". Since it's important for intelligent people to set the example for our nation's dumbasses, I will start wearing a mask again when away from home. It helps that I picked up several on sale at Walmart for $1. LOL

    As the link below notes, vaccines and masks are effective but not perfect. Even 97% effectiveness leaves a 3% window of infection. What the anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers and other dumbasses don't understand is that even they catch COVID and survive, they've deliberately infected put an unknown member of loved ones and friends at risk. IMO, that's as fucking stupid as demanding no one who rides with them in a car should wear a seatbelt.

    Fauci says vaccinated people ‘might want to consider’ wearing masks indoors as delta variant surges in U.S.
    • Fauci told CNBC that U.S. officials are concerned that they are seeing more breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated people.
    • The more transmissible delta variant now makes up roughly 83% of sequenced Covid-19 cases in the country.
    • Some areas of the U.S. are reimplementing mask mandates due to spikes in cases.

    Note that the over 65 group is 95X more likely to die of COVID than the 18-29 group.

    Laminating it may have been a mistake if a booster is needed, which is probable. I thought about laminating it myself, but then realized they couldn't mark off a third shot if we need it.

    Why are you still lying about this?

    I don't understand what you're hoping to achieve other than mass death.

    Is your goal to kill every Trump voter before next year's midterms?

    In a way, I don't want you to stop sharing misinformation because doing so will probably get rid of enough Trump voters to make the difference in narrow elections next year.

    Science says, comrade Dookie. Why are you going against Comrade Putin, Dookie? Is it because you are seeking to harm the US as part of your mission for Mother Russia?

    Masks do not work, especially for kids. But if you choose to be a sheep easily controlled, mask up. Try 6 at a time so you cannot possibly breathe. Let the bacteria grow on the inside of the mask and then suck them into your lungs----------enjoy!!!!! Baa, Baa, Baa

    Not worried. If they made the card wallet sized, I wouldn't have done it. If a booster is needed, they can offer a new card, a second card, etc.

    Take it easy on him. He's a retarded Russkie. It takes time for him to process instructions.

    where do people get the huge egos to be judging others as 'less intelligent' than them, simply because they don't behave like they think they should? why do you think those who do not wear masks are 'dumbasses'?
    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    When one has the Dunning-Kruger effect, we have to treat them with kid gloves.

    Do kids have some special weakness where masks don't work?

    Sooooooo.....according to your logic, wearing a seatbelt and putting a weapon on "safe" is being a "sheep".

    Dude, here's what sheep look like:

    Do you think a person who never puts their weapon on "safe" is a dumbass? Teaches their kids that seatbelts cut off blood flow to the brain?

    Common sense procedures for pandemics and epidemics existed long before Trump was born. Do you what you want but when you shoot yourself in the foot or accidentally shoot someone, you can be assured I'll label you a "dumbass".

    Retarded or just blindly follow orders from his handlers? Inquiring people want to know.
