    I would have loved 30 days paid quarantine from work, that's for sure. Per dose no less. Can only dream...

    I thought vaccines made you artistic? /s
    You're not "playing devil's advocate", you're making someone who is likely speaking from personal experience defend themselves against the shitty and oppressive opinion you're too embarrassed to admit you actually believe in. It's you. You're the devil.

    COVID just killed Colin Powell.

    Powell was a classic Republican, and left the party after Trump tried to overthrow it.

    He’s best known, in modern memory, for pushing the WMD narrative that got us into Iraq. He was also fully vaccinated so Trumpsters are back on their bullshit in that regard.

    Lemme just make sure I have this right.

    They're worried about vaccinated kids infecting other kids with the vaccine?

    Yes. This isn’t new either. It was around 6 months ago I remember reading about anti-vaxx idiots wearing masks because they were worried vaccinated people would shed their vaccine causing the unvaccinated to become vaccinated. I kinda wish that had become a bigger trend. We wouldn’t have had the same summer surge.

    Same place that was worried it would make the breeding sows, I mean female teachers, infertile.

    This is one of those days where I just quietly shake my head at humanity and walk away...

    A shame those days aren't decreasing in frequency.

    He was. As Lindsey Graham has also proven, just because you're vaccinated doesn't make you 100% immune -- just more resistant. Powell was 84 and someone brought COVID to him, and killed him. Big surprise, Trump's rabid fanbase will blame the vaccine and not the person who killed Colin Powell.

    As for the other part, it's true that Powell's legacy will always be...let's say "mixed" because it's too soon after his death for me to explain how I really feel.

    We truly do live in the worst timeline.

    Anti-Vaxxers worrying about "vaccine shedding" isn't even new; they've been claiming that for years, but this is the first time (AFAIK) that actual people in power (however limited) tried to actually use that bullshit to punish people for getting vaccinated.

    Powell had cancer, which compromised his immune system. And while its true no vaccine makes you 100% immune, it prepares your immune system to target and destroy the virus quickly (in this case, before it destroys your lungs). So yeah, weak immune system makes for a weak immune response, however Powell would still be alive today if the people around him bothered to get vaccinated or wear masks.

    Make no mistake it wasn't covid that killed Powell. Ignorant conservatives killed Powell, with covid, at some kind of fundraiser I assume.

    Or a health care worker that was supposed to get vaccinated for their job, but "I just don't want to". Honestly, there are a lot of stupid ways to kill someone.

    As a healthcare worker, I still can't understand why these people can call themselves healthcare workers and not believe in medicine. All to appease some kind of orange flavored fascism? I mean what's next, teachers who don't believe in science? First responders who don't believe in public safety? Wait a minute...

    To quote the Biology teacher my freshman year of HS in a shithole small town in Michigan, circa 1992: I'm required to teach you about the theory of evolution, but we all know what really happened.

    What's next is FOX News saying in public that Colin Powell's death means vaccines don't work.

    This is one of the times I might actually believe they chalked up an unrelated cause of death as COVID - in this case, his black soul.
