Selfishness wins again!

I’m in NC right now, and it’s moving how the local population resembles the overall population. In any given store, about half are wearing a mask, the other half do not.

I’ve heard it from the horses’s mouths that “masks are political.” And no matter how apolitical disease is, the mask is seen as a vehicle driving the parties in separate directions.

I see the mask as an act of compassion toward others, not a political stance. It doesn’t tell me, I’m a democrat. It says, “I care about people at risk.” Hell, it’s selfish, too, I guess. I like not being sick and it seems to be a simple safeguard against even silly diseases that have forever gotten in my system and left.

And, yet, here we are. Watching our population diminish for politics. One side’s politics think it’s selfless to wear a mask, to contain not just Covid, but disease. To think of others health first. The other party associates freedom with their face free of diversion, thereby allowing their crusty, shit-infested spittle and viral-loaded snot to fly free from interference.

These charts are loaded with data that show how America is winning its war to spread covid faster, further and more productively than the rest of the world, exemplifying our dominance in killing itself from within. Good on us. We are winning the war of killing ourselves for “politics.”

August 16 to September 3 is a lifetime

This Sorry Antivaxxer post about Cy Nunez is heart breaker.

Nunez was an anti-vaxxing, Joe Biden hating, mask despising, Trump loving, God-fearing gentleman of just 56 years old. He announced that he contracted Covid on August 16, 2021. He posted frequently within that time frame about the inefficacy of masks.

He bragged he felt fine.
He kept gardening.
He took care of his wife sick with covid.

Cy departed the world on September 3, 2021.

Two short weeks with a flu. A flu that wouldn’t have killed him if he just understood the simple concepts behind vaccinations. His post in the hospital where he says, “I just want to hold my wife” will tear at your heart. If it doesn’t, check your pulse.

I’ll post the announcement video and the final video below the fold. They are showing up huge on my computer screen. So you might want to head to the link in the first line to view them.
