Quite likely. Lots of Americans I can't abide these days and I am American.



It is what it is.

“The Swedish government stated that it is “examining the possibility of exempting fully vaccinated residents of certain third [world] countries from the entry restrictions”—but did not specify which countries might be considered and added that it will “return to this issue at a later date.” So, when and whether vaccinated U.S. travelers may possibly be exempt from the ban remains TBD.

I believe that the US has banned travelers from the EU. Not sure if this has changed recently.

These measures are meant to slow down the death rate, to give people time to come to their senses and get vaccinated.

to give people time to come to their senses and get vaccinated.

coz 18 months & 650K deaths (aka 14% of global deaths with ~4% of global population) isn't enough to teach the unvax'd the idea that some science is good (other than Ivermectin) and it's long past time to come to ones senses.

did I ever tell youse guys about the 1 time Owen got stuck up a tree 60' high?

The U.S. has "blanket" banned European travelers for 18 months... did the State Department and Administration really think that Europe wasn't going to eventually play "tit-for-tat"?

COVID, in this case, is a pretext for "yeah? well @#$%& you too!".

Yes, it is... But, I don't blame them one bit.

Nor I. "Completely, utterly ridiculous" describes current American society in a nutshell - why should they want to have to deal with any of that?



It is what it is.

This is only about Sweden and nothing else. Their initial Covid plans turned out to be disastrous. They thought they were smarter than every other country but they weren't.

They're taking this latest round more seriously as they should.

You mean they decided to stop ideology and go with science? What a radical proposal!

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

I think a large part of it was that it was only killing old people, and they didn't see that as a large enough cost. But I don't think they ever had a problem accepting the "science".
