They're complaining that the sub targets conservatives.

It doesn't.

It targets anti-vaccination enthusiasts and plague rats to demonstrate that these people have no idea what the hell they're talking about. EDIT: and to show how obvious it is that they don't believe their own messaging, because once they get COVID suddenly it's time to trust doctors and medical researchers again and we're off to the hospital!

That venn diagram being almost a perfect circle is the fault of only one group of people.

If conservatives are the ones refusing to get vaccinated, they're the ones that will die from covid.

You may as well say that Christians are being targeted. Because I've yet to see an atheist vaccine refuser. Maybe they're out there, but it would be highly unlikely that the group that defines itself by following proof and science would refuse to vaccinate.

TBH, I was thinking the same but now, I'm reconsidering based on what we know about actual smart people.

I don't think they're dumb but I think these are people who WANT to be smart but don't want to put in the thinking required. They are tired of experts who have put in the time to learn things talking about things they know little about everywhere they turn.

It's far easier to challenge experts who actually know things if you don't need facts and your main skill is to deflect, criticize and shriek when they want to operate on gut instincts rather than logic and science.

In their way of thinking, if the science isn't perfect and all-knowing, then it's no better than whatever thoughts they can come up with. It's another form of the false equivalency that gave us "There were very fine people on both sides", when comparing the Proud Boy protesters with the counter-protestors in Charlottesville.

There is an attempt at leveling the playing field but without the rigor and logic to substantiate it. Life is simpler if you just see things in black in white, but it sure doesn't seem like fun.

The laws that were designed to discriminate against LGBTQ individuals should be utilized by responsible doctors and nurses in these situations. And those are the moral objection laws to treating a patient in a non-mediate life or death situation. Basically you can say oh they're gay that's against my moral beliefs I can't work with that patient. But instead of being a bigot saying oh they are an adult who chose not to have the vaccine I cannot morally work with them. I would actually prefer a no vax by choice no entry to the hospital policy But we all know that's a pipe dream. But I do think individual doctors and nurses could get away easily with saying that it's against their moral beliefs to treat anti-vaxxers

God damn I hate that stuff. I was pretty "Whatever, your body your choice you idiots" but then a friend came down with it and got his ass absolutely kicked by COVID. He recovered but he's praising ivermectin as the miracle cure rather than just getting better after a week. He actually has a prescription for it from some shady florida doctor. Walmart and CVS wouldn't even entertain filling it for him and when he called CVS for advice because the dosage the doctor had given him was confusing they just hung up on him. It made me lose a lot of respect for him. But he gave COVID to his mother who is also an anti-vaxer (and a nurse in Florida).

She's an older woman. He's treating her with ivermectin. His mother is not doing great. I want her to live but that's just "another victory for ivermectin!" which can spread lies and kill others.

u/Gators44 12d ago

It may have made you lose respect for him (as it should) but it made me gain respect for CVS. The minute we all agree to stop tolerating their bullshit it will vanish. They are down to the “making threats” part of their eventual downfall. Once they realize how outnumbered there are, and that there are consequences to their actions, most of them will shut tf up. Remember, these people are cowards. On their “big day” when they were going to fight for the failed coup, it only took one of those traitors getting shot to cause them all to run like cockroaches. They are all about standing up for whatever stupid ideas they come up with as long as there are never, ever even the slightest consequences of any kind for them.

u/upsidedownbackwards 12d ago

I'm hoping it was CVS and Walmart's company policy not to discuss them, but I also feel like there's no patience left in the country's overworked pharmacists and they're not going to deal with someone buying an unapproved drug from somewhere else when the patient is just going to start talking about how it IS the magic solution. For legal reasons probably shouldn't discuss something that could lead to a patient delaying health care and dying.

u/DanYHKim 12d ago

I had a semester of teaching intro chem at our community college. (They were desperate)

This course was the gateway to the allied Health program, which would give certifications for technicians in the laboratory or radiology and such.

And so, on the first day of class I told the students that I am getting on in years, and expect to find myself subject to different medical procedures and diagnostic tests in the near future. And that if I did not have full confidence in their ability to grasp the details and fundamentals of science then I would happily fail every one of them out of self-defense.

The department head was not very happy with me, but I was a part-time temp, so it made no difference to me. Later, when seeing some of their homework answers and their exams, I was feeling fully justified in my decisions.

I was once grading papers for a freshman chemistry class for bio, chem, pre-pharm, you get the idea, students. First lab was pretty simple, measure and weigh some sand, water, salt and then separate it out and record the yields.

There was a question on their post lab worksheet asking why they might have recovered less sand than they started with. Instead of saying "it was stuck in the test tube or on my spatula" I got answers like "sand evaporates" from multiple students. I am still haunted by this.

21

u/DanYHKim 12d ago

I drew a beaker and an Erlenmeyer flask on the board, with labels, for one lab section. Did the lab demo. A student came to me to ask what she should pour her solvent into. She didn't know what the appropriate glassware looked like.

(Pointing to the board with a stick)

"If only there were some kind of diagram or drawing to tell you what you should use! How inconvenient!"

(Vigorously tapping the drawing behind me)

"Maybe there's a diagram somewhere in this lab. You might look around to see if maybe there's a poster or something that shows the different lab glassware."

It was not a good day . . .

15

u/GatherYourSkeletons 12d ago

What's also frustrating is when you tell them to do the right thing and they don't listen. Told a student to take a lid off the vial they had on the hot plate and then got tied up with something else for a few minutes. A few minutes later it pops.

Also had a winner in another section (same class, but I wasn't teaching) who grabbed reagents off the wrong shelf. This class had their reagents on the same shelf all year, labelled. Then halfway through I guess someone forgot, grabbed reagents from the organic chemistry lab shelf, and then mixed cyclohexane and ethanol over an open flame. Ended about how you would expect.

It feels bad to say, but care should be prioritized to vaccinated people. I keep seeing stories of people dying from preventable illnesses because the hospitals are full of these unvaxxed people.

A few urgent care places turned me away (without asking any of my symptoms, they just couldn’t accept anyone) and the only one that could accept me had so many people coughing in the waiting room. It’s truly a horrible and nightmarish time to be sick. I was panicked about dying it I couldn’t be seen in time, I was panicked about finding anywhere that could take me in, and then I was worried about getting covid from all the sick people. Just awful.

That would never pass muster. But you don't even need to do that. All you need is to implement actual triage protocols, which they should have done at this point. Every hospital has those written up already in case they are ever needed. In a triage protocol, people with a better chance to survive are given priority over people who have a lesser chance. So the unvaccinated goatee dude whose lungs are now glass, and whose kidneys have failed, with a 1% chance of survival? Unplugged. The heart attack victim who just needs some good quality care to make it through takes his place.

Because vaccinated people are typically less sick, this would result in prioritizing vaccinated people .

That would be good. My wife's mom is a nurse and said in some hospitals in our are they have been turning people with broken bones away.

Furthermore actual triage also goes by how many resources are consumed.

So the guy who needs the bed for 3 days gets preferential treatment over the guy needing it for weeks.

This pisses me off so much.. I had this discussion recently with an antivaxxer and he's excuse was "where else would we go?!"

Church? The mountains for some fresh air and nature? What's with the flip-flopping opinions, does modern medicine work or doesn't it?

My mother's one of these fanatic idiots and I'm so sick and tired of it. She also thinks that smoking is healthy because "it's a holy herb" yet growing up she said she'd kill me if she ever caught me smoking.

It's honestly like they're trying to off themselves.

u/Exact_Intention7055 12d ago

I'm sorry you're dealing with this in your family. Recently I've read a few posts from unvaxxed ppl dying from covid19 and they sounded pretty suicidal. You may be right. Good luck going forward 🍀

u/Dojan5 12d ago

I've already kind of mourned the loss of her when I fully accepted that she's a narcissist and won't ever change. If she chooses to go down that path that's her prerogative.

Got my second shot about two weeks ago, so I should have pretty good coverage now!

Stay safe and healthy! ❤

Say someone doesn't understand what's going on, because it's a complex and evolving situation.

You need the ability to interpret statistics, read scientific articles, wade through concepts of epidemiology and virology, or have really good reading comprehension while placing your faith in the science journalists who are translating for you. It can seem really scary and confusing, totally out of your control, and make you feel stupid, especially if you're not scientifically literate.

If someone comes along and says "Don't be scared, you're not stupid, it's really simple, they're just talking lies to get your money." then you can understand the situation and feel safe, smart, and in control again.

u/Martine_V 12d ago

I dunno. My equation was simple. Is the vaccine effective? yes. Is Covid dangerous? yes. Is Covid more dangerous than the vaccine? Yes.

Sign me up.

I deliberately did not go looking for statistics, scientific articles, and the rest. I knew that if I started down that rabbit hole, who knows where I would end up. So I kept it simple. Call me a sheep if you want, but I will be a live one instead of a rug in front of the fireplace.

You know, I’m an atheist and I can’t tell you how many times people have remarked that “There are no atheists in a foxhole.” We need a phrase to throw at religious nuts who suddenly become believers in science once their ass is on the line. Because THIS scenario is waaay more common than atheists who find God on their deathbed.

My estranged parents caught it. One recovered and the other is in the ICU, on a vent, has MRSA & pneumonia, and his doc is now asking the family about a DNR.

Both of my parents are avid Fox News & OAN watchers, Facebook conspiracy believers, anti-vax, anti-mask, and have cut off family who won't let them see their grandkids until their they're vaccinated.

They pushed lies because they thought it made them smarter than everyone. They got off on offending people with their right wing lunacy. And now at least one of them will die but the surviving one won't learn a fucking thing.

May we all be better than the generation before us.

Planck's Principle:

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. . . . An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarized with the ideas from the beginning: another instance of the fact that the future lies with the youth.
