    Not to mention several villains, like fucking Thanos. Painted in a positive light. Unironically.

    lol god.
    I only recently started paying more attention to the Trump side of things because of my aunt.
    I was kidding with my WWF comment the other day but fuck me, they aren't.

    The Arnold one is weird because didn't he denounce them AND not like Trump?
    Oddly, he's said things lately I agree with too.

    The Thanos one I can see though, that's pretty much her husband, wishing he could snap half of us away.

    Things in California are looking good for Democrats so far. Things in Texas are too.

    The survey released Thursday found that 41 percent of Texans approved of the job Abbott is doing, compared to 50 percent who disapproved of his job performance.

    The approval is lower than it was in June when 44 percent approved of the governor's performance, equal to the 44 percent that said they disapproved.

    Fifty-two percent of voters said the state is headed in the wrong direction, the worst the institute has recorded since it started in 2008.

    The more recent Texas Policy Project poll found that Abbott’s job approval dropped among all partisan groups, but decreased most significantly among independents. Thirty percent of respondents who identified as independent voters said they approve of the job Abbott is doing, down from 41 percent in June.

    His approval dropped from 77 percent to 73 percent among Republicans, and from 8 percent to 6 percent among Democrats.

    Unfortunately, it would take more than replacing Abbot...Texans would have to flip their legislature as well, if they want to see any meaningful improvement.

    Well, it's probably because Abbott is trying to kill off his constituents, though admittedly not as quickly as DeSantis. Speaking of, Texas just today beat their summer record for their 7-day average of covid deaths, set last year. They moved from 261 to 282 today, and the high mark from last summer was 266.




    Next up is their winter high of 345.

    Florida stands at 325, but finally we're seeing a drop in cases and hospitalizations. Deaths will eventually follow. I already posted the numbers on how many more people Florida killed than the national average applied to them would have.

    But did Abbot molest any children and drink blood of virgins?
    That's how low the bar as been set for conservatives.

    I see your point, and poll numbers don't mean anything until they're votes cast. But it's good to know that even the Republican Party is starting to frown upon rules/laws applied whose goal seems to be to kill them.

    They will still vote for him en masse when it comes time to vote.

    Tuesday's report:

    142,059 new cases; about 28k fewer than two weeks ago.

    Top 10:

    Fuck Florida.
    Texas: 21,240 new cases; 318 deaths
    California: 10,106 new cases; 103 deaths
    Georgia: 7,327 new cases; 128 deaths
    Ohio: 7,325 new cases; 28 deaths
    Tennessee: 5,089 new cases; 127 deaths
    North Carolina: 4,760 new cases; 58 deaths
    Illinois: 4,660 new cases; 39 deaths
    New York: 4,606 new cases; 32 deaths
    Minnesota: 4,598 new cases; 12 deaths

    The national trend still appears to be declining, though there are several states with high numbers and strained resources (*ahemahem* Texas, masters of the pandemic) which means we'll continue to be losing a lot of people over the coming weeks. If Florida's numbers are to be believed they're probably not number one in cases or hospitalizations anymore, which I'm sure comes as a relief to our resident Floridians for now. They did, however, post more cases yesterday than California and DeathSantis continues fighting against mask mandates, politicizing what should be a no-brainer safety precaution. Fuck Florida. 35 states reported over 1k new cases, so we're still a long way off from the end of this current wave despite the downturn.

    1,934 deaths is around 300 more than two weeks ago and brings the total to 682,341. Florida, Texas and Georgia took the top spots and Tennessee, Louisiana and Arizona all had more deaths than California which is pretty horrible considering the population difference. Some of Tuesday's total is likely a correction from the weekend but the 7-day average has been pushed just above 1.5k.

    Few people medically exempt from getting COVID-19 vaccine: Experts --The bottom line is that there should not be any health reasons--pre-existing conditions or otherwise--that prevent people from getting the vaccine. Studies show "no immediate health issues or side effects", so all of those people lining up to get an exemption from a chiropractor are wasting their time.

    West Virginia battles Covid surge after failing to build on early vaccine success--They went from one of the best to one of the worst in short order and now their healthcare system is just about as fucked as those in the South.

    Several NFL teams are now requiring fans in physical attendance show proof of vaccination to get through the front door.

    I'll start with Buffalo. Erie County has seen a bunch of new cases, and officials there are taking it seriously. Yes, Buffalo is upstate NY and yes, a lot of upstate NY is red, but Buffalo is a major-ish city and is still blue, so this isn't a massive surprise. With vaccine proof in hand (yes, you need to bring your card, or you need to enrol in NYState's "Excelsior" program, nuff said) you don't need to mask in the stadium, which of course means some dumb motherfucker's going to lie/cheat their way in and infect some kids.

    The New Orleans Saints said four weeks ago not only would vaccination be required, but also, you need to bring a negative test with you. Oh, and you don't get a refund if you refuse, because remember Mardis Gras? Yeah.

    The Seattle Seahawks are not quite as strict. Starting this coming home game, you have to have proof of vaccination, or a recent negative test. However, you also need to be masked, because the stadium is in the city and the city says mask up.

    And finally, the Raiders of Las Vegas have announced a vaccination requirement. Well, most of them. The Fiends were first in line, not a huge surprise there with the other stuff they already cram into their system, with the Great Khans right behind them. The Jackals and Vipers are also believed to have signed on as well, but they haven't released an official statement. The Powder Gangers are notable, public holdouts, choosing to "stick it to the man". As such, they will not be allowed to attend home games, and the NCR will wipe them out once Hoover Dam is secured.

    @Breccia Vegas announced the vaccine requirement a month ago. They also offer on site vaccinations for fans attending games, but if you go that route you gotta be masked up.

    Yeah it was the Bills' more recent announcement that prompted the post. I just wanted to point out it wasn't just them.

    Fair enough. Considering how many tourists think you can do w/e you want in Vegas, I find it fun that they were the first NFL team to have this requirement in place.

    Indeed. Most fans think they have the best story, especially when compared to DC, Boston and West Virginia.
