...from some new-fangled infectious disease that probably doesn't even exist.

A conservative radio host from Florida who criticised coronavirus vaccination efforts – and called himself “Mr Anti-Vax” – before contracting Covid-19 himself has died, his station said on Saturday.

...In December, Bernier told one guest: “I’m not taking it … Are you kidding me? Mr Anti-Vax? Jeepers.”

He got to spend the last three weeks of his life in the hospital...

As the contagious Delta variant spreads, states led by Republicans resistant to public health mandates, Florida among them, are struggling with a surge of hospitalisations and deaths.

Why, yes. Yes they are.

His Twitter line asked that the family be left alone to grieve, the Tweet line - not being family - was savaged.

South Dakota is at the bottom of the list for deaths - meaning it has the fewest/100k.

CA is not nearly as low as I'd like to see on the list, but it could be worse.

I'll do my best not to make it so.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

NYT is showing Maine as the lowest at 0.06 per 100,000. South Dakota tied with Washington D.C. (and Guam) at 0.08.

I went with the OP’s source. Still, after the Sturgis rally, South Dakota is doing well except in the county where it was held. Social distancing in SD is probably not too difficult except in its two largest cities.

If one person changes their mind and gets vaxxed, then his death was worth it.

Texas anti-mask organizer, 30, dies of COVID

[www.chron.com]

Caleb Wallace, a Texas anti-mask organizer who allegedly treated himself with the horse dewormer ivermectin, has died after contracting COVID-19. He was 30 and is survived by his pregnant wife and three children.

Wallace founded the anti-mandate group "The San Angelo Freedom Defenders." Its Facebook page says its goal is to "encourage [citizens] to actively participate in their duty to secure God-given and constitutionally protected rights." On the Fourth of July, Wallace organized a so-called "Freedom Rally" for people "sick of the government being in control of our lives."

Because of his views, he was a regular presence at San Angelo city council meetings and on the local news.

“My health has nothing to do with you. As harsh as that sounds, our constitutional, fundamental rights protect that. Nothing else," Wallace said at a November 2020 San Angelo COVID update meeting. "I’m sorry if that comes off as blunt and that I don’t care. I do care. I care more about freedom than I do for your personal health."

By late July, Wallace was infected with the coronavirus. According to the San Angelo Standard-Times, he tried to treat himself with ivermectin. Ivermectin is widely available as a deworming agent for livestock, but over the last year has become increasingly popular among fringe groups who distrust doctors and vaccines. The FDA has repeatedly cautioned against self-dosing with the livestock treatment.

"I care more about freedom than I do for your personal health."

Nice priorities.
