There's an entire industry of blue checks normalizing the fact 1,400 Americans died of COVID yesterday and 1,400 the day before. They see COVID as an economic problem and the lack of "normalcy" as the real issue. Eliminating reminders of COVID is the biggest issue we face.
DC has dropped its mask mandate. Why I and others think that - with an endemic virus - very justified to do this. Would recommend older people & immunocompromised get boosters & to mask indoors in mixed venues this winter if live in place with cases up washingtonpost.com/video/nat…

Uhhhh… a lot of people in Boston have some Thanksgiving leftovers to worry about. And I don’t just mean that last bit of old stuffing in the fridge. COVID found you.

The big, transformative COVID policy for 2021-2022 is a mail-in rebate I make lazy jokes all the time, but this being a part of our shared, objective reality is really messing with me A mail-in rebate is the best we can do. That's all our leaders can imagine. After nearly 2 yrs

Watching people argue that The Great Barrington Declaration isn't really genocide makes me wonder which non-genocidal policies have faced that kind of PR problem. Anyway, here's a list of them:

Whew. That took a while. In my opinion, "The Great Barrington Declaration is Not Technically Genocide" t-shirts would probably go a long way to answer all of the questions raised by the shirts.

Democrats' entire plan is telling vaccinated people to get vaccinated while they pretend we're not vaccinated, lecture us about getting vaccinated, and blame us for not getting vaccinated after we get vaccinated and boosted. Help is not on the way.
We’re all in this together. We’ll continue to work closely with public health experts, @NYCMayor, and cities and counties across the state to keep New Yorkers safe. Get vaccinated, get your booster, and get tested.

The brutal history of COVID in the U.S. is what happens when you treat a healthcare crisis as an economic problem. We’re going to keep doing that. On the upside: We found a way to funnel more money through private insurance companies. Instead of just mailing tests for free.

Oh, and if you don’t have insurance and don’t feel like / can’t afford to sign up for a $500 bronze plan with a $6,000 deductible you get nothing. No COVID test for you. Because you won’t allow a third party to make money off it. Imagine if we had a service to mail people things

In addition to the goofy overestimation of Susan Sarandon's powers, this post imagines the 2016 election as a three-way race between Bernie, HRC, and Trump. When in reality, after Bernie lost the primary more of his supporters voted for HRC than HRC's voted for Obama in 2008

What could possibly go wrong with my “Everybody on the plane take off your masks so we can figure out which of you has COVID” plan?

Neoliberalism is about limiting the scope of imagination to the solution that costs the least and offers the least. We could vax + mask in N95s, socially distance, ramp up mass testing sites, pay people to stay home… but we won’t. A vax only policy demands nothing of leaders.
If you are vaccinated, but still worried about Omicron, go get your booster. And if you aren’t vaccinated, go get that shot.

COVID is a recurring nightmare. You watch the same things happen over and over again. Nobody ever makes better choices. Nobody ever learns anything. You can’t wake up.
On March 1st, the American Mask Manufacturers Association wrote to the White House that their members had 233 million N95 respirators ready to ship and could produce 298 million more per month reginfo.gov/public/do/eoDown…

Omicron was an opportunity to walk back some of the bad choices we made as Delta washed over the world. Biden could’ve used the new variant as cover to bring back masking, mass testing sites (though some states never had them), etc. But we’re doing nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Getting vaccinated was sold as shortcut back to 2019 and permission not to care about COVID anymore. The entirety of Liberal thought is now focused on eliminating COVID from aesthetics (masks, etc) Omicron could’ve justified a better strategy, but too many gave up long ago.

The one question about Jeffrey Epstein I rarely see asked is why did prosecutors suddenly go for him in 2019? While it would’ve been nice to see Epstein spend decades in prison, the arrest seems to be the symptom of some bigger factional turf battle we’ll never, ever understand.

If the goal were simply to create a pretext for his very expected death, I imagine the sort of people who do those things could’ve made it happen less publicly.
