i am just a kitten and we’re only on unit 3 of economics, but i’m pretty sure that when you subsidize something, you get more of it.
i’m not sure more ADA fraud is going to help the worker shortage…
Where can I get a PCR test at 50 cycles?
Look at the string of comments:
How can we make sure to exclude the unvaccinated from this?
How can we find a way to use this to punish "covid deniers" and "anti-vaxxers?"
HOW CAN WE HURT THEM?
I'm a victim in a way that has no clear diagnostic criteria. Please make the people I despise support me for the rest of my life.
KILL THE UNVACCINATED.
"Somehow," this tweet became about lynching those on the other side of the divide and almost nothing to do with "healthcare."
Feeds right into their ultimate one party initiative. Lots more freebies for the “disabled” COVID survivors who will leave the workforce and maybe the unskilled/low skilled can be replaced by Central American imports who will undoubtedly vote for the dems. Keep that IV drip coming, Uncle Joe. Poor Joe tried to tell Donnie L that his 3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” bill will actually lower inflation! Remember what the Iron Lady once said, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
I hate that they are politicizing everything re this virus. IMO that has made such a mess of our whole response. I am pretty sure post viral syndrome is real, as I had a very weird case of it a few years ago after a bout of a mild "flu" which tested negative for influenza. It was not serious but dragged on and on.
Recently read that researchers in CA - Stanford? - think they have discovered the cause of "long covid." Fragments of virus proteins remain in body cells post infection, and as cells die a type of white blood cell picks up the virus fragments and reactivate the proteins, which in turn activates the body's immune response. So this should be self a limiting, and therapies involving reducing inflammation should be helpful.
Not to say that this won't be played by all the usual grifters and hypochondriacs. The researchers were able to find viral traces in these patients, even ones who tested negative for Antibodies and were referred by their doctors for psychiatric treatment. So maybe possible to confirm via testing.
AYFKM!! What a disaster. Everyone will now have "long covid". If you think extended unemployment benefits have been bad for the economy, wait until this takes effect.
Don't worry, the "leaders" will panic as the numbers start moving up in the winter (because seasonality trumps everything we do), and then they will extend the UI benefits for another year or so.
Lawyers...I present you with a gift.
You would think a basic economics course would be a requirement for even a high school education.
As usual, the govt breaks everything and then come up with a way to patch it up. There will be half of this country not working or being productive. Think grocery stores were bare during CV...we aint seen noth'in yet.
Here's another gem (emphasis mine):
>>I have all symptoms of longcovid sans loss of taste&smell. I'VE NEVER HAD COVID IT WAS BROUGHT ON BY AN INFECTION. I can't even get approved rides to go to my doc's appts let alone disability. RTC thinks Im healthy enough to walk 3miles to thebus stop. Somedays I can't walk 15ft.+
More proof Biden is STILL A MORON!
Oh, and there is this: "The CDC admits that PCR tests can’t differentiate between Coronaviruses....let that sink in... that means that for the past year and a half colds and the flu have been diagnosed as Covid."
"Senior @Reuters director Dawn Scalici was a CIA officer for 33 years. Her job now is "advancing Thomson Reuters’ ability to meet the disparate needs of the U.S. Government".
That's our so-called democracy for you, out there advancing the "needs" of corporate oligarchy.
I know that somewhere I read a ridiculous article saying you can be diagnosed with long Covid without ever having a positive test 🙄
of friggin course....
i predicted this a yr ago. now how does one prove this???? gawd
kids are is about dis ability. don't care where it c and from. get Biden a softie cone.
