[News] Post a D&D Picture

Previous incarnations of Cleveland/P&C/D&D have had an image thread, to handle political cartoons and other image-based stuff that doesn't belong in the general post-a-picture threads.

If any of them spawn an extended discussion, please spawn it off into its own thread. Replies to non-picture replies should take the form of a link pointing to a post on a different discussion thread.

And I shouldn't have to say it, but the images still need to abide by the rules.

The CDC vaccinations per day numbers are freaking me out. WTF is going on the last two weeks?

55ish percent of adults have gotten at least one dose so we're starting to brush up against all those Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents who either say they aren't going to get vaccinated or that they're going to "wait and see" which is moron talk for "if the fourth or fifth wave of COVID gets really bad, I'll begrudgingly get vaccinated...maybe"

I know I’m being a pedantic nerd, and I also know that you were merely quoting moronic vaccine-hesitant rhetoric and that the language in quotes does not represent your personal point of view.

I just wanted to point out that we are still in the first wave. When new cases drop to zero, that’s when the first wave is over. The second wave is what happens IF the vaccine and herd immunity fails to protect us from a mutation that develops after the first wave is over.

Thank you for indulging my weird insistence on accuracy.

TIL that oceans have wave.

It was a "rare example of military officials taking proactive, decisive steps" meaning it took the military 13 months to figure out the little sh*t was a Nazi and to kick him out. 13 f*cking months.

Honestly that's pretty impressive for government speeds.

I like the bad movie reference.

In July of 2018, I finally enacted a decade-long plan to leave the banking industry. In the waning months of my employment there, my employer actually, literally, prohibited out of office messages of any kind to their sales and service staff.

They’re also the same people that refuse to follow COVID safety guidelines and choose to not get vaccinated. They are also the people who are contributing the most to a potential second wave of the pandemic. You know, a vaccine resistant COVID variant which could possibly be more infectious and more deadly.

I’ve already decided that if there is a true second wave, I’m not going to be polite when I see people flaunting the safety guidelines. I’ve been very good and compliant over the past 14 months. Others in my community have not. Things might get ugly.

The group of people that the law protects but does not bind believe correctly that they do not need to follow the same rules as the people that the law binds but does not protect.

"There's nothing new under the sun."

IT is really hard to understand some people, and to feel any empathy for them.

The next couple of graphs from that article are the kicker (frankly, the entire article is bonkers and why we're never going to get herd immunity):

NYT wrote:

Neither the science nor statistics of the new vaccine daunt them. Now retired and in their 70s, Jim Fletcher was a telecom engineer, Rita Fletcher, a secretary and accounting clerk.

But the Fletchers, Free Will Baptists, worry the vaccine includes aborted fetal parts (it does not). They do not trust the government, convinced it has long manipulated COVID case numbers.

“I just think we have been hornswoggled,” Jim Fletcher said.

They're of the age where they have about a one in ten chance of dying if they catch COVID--which is why all their friends died--but they won't get the vaccine because they think the government is lying to them and not the dumb f*ck told them the vaccine (which one?) contains aborted fetal parts.

The Atlantic had an article today where they interviewed about a dozen people under 50 who refused to get vaccinated and it was 100% either "I'm a Trumper idiot screaming about muh freedumbs," "I'm a selfish prick," or combination of the two.

That venn diagram is a circle.

The subject makes her husband, the Rev. David Smith, even more uncomfortable. “Honestly, I wish people wouldn’t ask,” he said, chatting after Wednesday night prayer at Tusculum Baptist Church. “I think it’s none of their business. And it’s just dividing people.”

It sure is, Dave, but you're the one dividing.

It's the unspoken (for the rich) part that always catches people out.

Rich and white. Rich and black gets your neighborhood literally bombed out of existance by the local and federal police.

Just posting the NSFW link.

Love the "Not for Men" caveat. It isn't the head on the thing that bothers me so much as the veins they added to it.
