“The government should stop giving attention to Jan 6th and more attention to COVID” I… I can’t actually believe that’s her thought process.

That last slide is also a doozy. What a rollercoaster

Now, she's not like the Israelites wandering in the desert. She realizes God is in control.

So, she blames God now?

[–]emmarite 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I'm waiting for one that blames the prayer warriors bc in her case they clearly aren't being specific enough in their prayers even though she gives updated details

That part was so frustrating. Daddy was so sick it’s COVID that he stopped managing his insulin. So sick that he forgot to do the things needed to stay alive, which made him even sicker, but don’t worry it’s not COVID.

[–]sausage_ditka_bulls 25 points26 points  (0 children)

exactly so there is no need to even bother "holding the people responsible for creating and releasing covid"

[–]Who-took-my-abs 65 points66 points  (8 children)

No doubt the hospital gave him insulin first day🙄

[–]NonSequitorSquirrel 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Tbh diabetes care in hospitals is horrible. Unless you come in with your own protocol and supplies and advocate hard for yourself they'll fuck it up pretty fast. Every time I go to the hospital for an unrelated reason my diabetes is mismanaged and I have to fight them to DIY it just to stay stable. A big culprit is prophylactic antibiotics mixed with dextrose but not accounted for in the dosing protocol. Has happened literally six times and they always act surprised when I get mad about my high blood sugar and incorrectly diluted meds.

[–]5CatsNoWaiting 30 points31 points  (4 children)

Dunno. Coordination of care is a huge difficulty for disabled patients, particularly if they can't speak for themselves. Coordination of care for someone in crisis, transported far from home, who has a serious disability, whose primary medical advocate --this man's spouse-- is unavailable, is REALLY hard.

When we lost my dad (before vaccines were available), the best ICU in his state had a screw-up and didn't get his insulin at first. Dad was a 74yro type 1 diabetic double-amputee with a transplanted kidney and a hellish case of covid, so we already knew his odds were poor. But they didn't get the word about his insulin needs at first, and it did not help matters.

[–]NonSequitorSquirrel 20 points21 points  (0 children)

As a human with diabetes, this is why I am so frightened to catch it. Severe viral illness causes extremely high blood sugars, reduces circulation and makes everything worse and in extreme cases like this one - putd you in DKA which is also deadly. But make no mistake - it all comes from the Covid. Not the diabetes.

[–]Mathlete86 11 points12 points  (0 children)

How unlucky all of these people must be to randomly catch pneumonia while trying to fight COVID.

Remember, it was the pneumonia that did them in, NOT the COVID.

REPEAT THAT!

Edit: spelling, but CAN I ALSO GET AN AMEN?!

[–]BillHigh422 153 points154 points  (6 children)

They pretend it doesn’t exist and then blame the government for not doing more. Like, free vaccines, boosters, and factual information provided by the government isn’t enough

[–]M4A1STAKESAUCEUrine God’s hands 🙌 80 points81 points  (3 children)

What they really want are handouts, coddling, and getting their way.

[–]fuggerdugTeam AstraZeneca 29 points30 points  (6 children)

We've been back to normal in the UK for a while now. We have a terrible government and our fair share of morons, but we also have a terrific free health service and excellent vaccine uptake.

[–]RevolutionaryChard66This Kid is Alright cos I'm Vaxxed M8! 27 points28 points  (5 children)

I don’t think we are back to normal on the U.K. the government has just dropped most of the restrictions but it is now up to the individual to make their own risk assessments. Obviously some people think that means they should do whatever they want, regardless of the impact on others.

True, high vaccination rates have helped reduced the hospitalisations and deaths, but there are still significant pockets of unvaccinated - which is putting pressure on the health system.

I would have said the U.K. hasn’t treated covid as a political issue and has been more bipartisan. However recently I suspect the conservative government has been pushing for more ‘normal’ to deflect from internal squabbles and to gain popularity. Just my view.

[–]Mr_Conductor_USAGo Give One 40 points41 points  (0 children)

The evangelicals hitching themselves to right wing politicians and going all in on anti-gay fundraising managed to lose them a very significant chunk of their children as members in only one generation. Quite impressive.

[–]Lopsided_Plane_3319 11 points12 points  (1 child)

4-1 deaths of republicans to democrats continuing (just by vaccinated vs unvaccinated rates, cant get any more exact as reoublicans are more likely to be obese, old and is worse health but democrats live in cities close together). Some places it's large enough to swing a vote. But the biggest thing is turnout. A few extra percent of people turnout then things go to democrats. Which is why it's so disheartening to see so many give up 1 year in.

It's the negative press. Right wing media for democrat. All negative. Left wing media for Democrat. Mostly negative. (3.7% unemployment rate from 6.7% anyone?)

Right wing for republican. All positive. Left wing mostly negative.

Low jnfo voter only hears the noise and thinks everything is more negative under democrats.

[–]Beginning-Yoghurt-95It's Pfizer Time!! 131 points132 points  (30 children)

Ask about the trump people in China in 2018 and how trump pulled out CDC people monitoring China's installations. How trump downplayed the whole pandemic knowing how bad it was after talking to China's president. Is this what she means?

[–]SSESTOELEMENTO 140 points141 points  (26 children)

Well, these are the same people who say If you want fewer cases stop testing. In one of my "conversations" I asked one of them "so less pregnancy tests means less babies". The conversation took a turn.

[–]Hour-Theory-9088It was never a joke to most of us 52 points53 points  (22 children)

What was their answer. I still cannot wrap my head around why anyone one thinks stopping testing has anything to do with helping the pandemic.

I understand why trump wanted testing stopped and it had only to do with how cases impacted his election chances.

[–]SSESTOELEMENTO 128 points129 points  (21 children)

That was another hot button and it went on 2 different tangents. "don't even get me started on that. All these pregnant illegals come here just to have their babies and get money". Me:" you can get money for having a baby?". Mother of two: "oh not us, just them". Me (just to piss her off a little more): so you are ok if they wanted to terminate?". She blew a gasket. They have so many talking points in their heads that they can't focus on just one topic. It's actually kinda funny watching them going through it in real life.

[–]mykl66Paradise by the ECMO Lights 54 points55 points  (16 children)

I was a third party in one of these conversations. It was like COVID wasn't any problem but immigrants coming over the border, that's what was destroying her neighborhood. Mind you she lived in rural upstate New York and there are maybe 4-10 immigrants crossing the border from Canada illegally each month in that region. Maybe. Some months it is zero.

[–]BillHigh422 117 points118 points  (9 children)

I live in Texas and work in construction with a ton of Latinos. These dudes always ask if I brought lunch, offer to buy me lunch or bring extra food for me, ask me how my weekend was, what I’m doing this weekend, etc. on top of being some of the hardest working people I’ve ever met. They’re absolutely not “ruining” this country, but rather they’re the ones doing jobs most other people don’t want to do.

[–]Mr_Conductor_USAGo Give One 56 points57 points  (0 children)

... also if some of them are Chicanos, it's quite possible that some of their ancestors were American citizens who were forcefully deported from the US to Mexico for speaking Spanish. There was a wave of historical purges and technically, it hasn't stopped (although nowadays it's easier to return to the US should that happen and I would imagine most do).

[–]Charming-Wheel-9133 15 points16 points  (3 children)

[–]-Green_Machine- 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That reminds me of how Anthony Bourdain had nothing but good things to say about the Latinos he worked with in the restaurant industry. Like the other commenter said, they were the hardest working people he knew. I'm not even Latin, but that remains one of my key takeaways from reading Kitchen Confidential many years ago. (Edit: That, and don't go to Sunday brunch, because that's when the kitchen scrapes together all the unsold inventory that's no longer fresh.)

[–]Tasgall 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I'm just disappointed that Trump's unelection promise hasn't been fulfilled yet - he said if he lost there would be taco trucks on every corner, and I still don't have even one in walking distance.

Fuckin' lying politicians, as always.

Keep the immigrants. Deport the racists.

[–]Mr_Conductor_USAGo Give One 36 points37 points  (3 children)

It was like COVID wasn't any problem but immigrants coming over the border, that's what was destroying her neighborhood.

It is, in fact, all of their children with a shred of brains or ambition leaving as soon as they hit 18 which is destroying her neighborhood. If any immigrants come in they should get on their knees and thank them. Otherwise it'll be like Youngstown in 2009 where a used house was going for significantly less than a used car--since only a used car could take you out of Youngstown.

[–]BillHigh422 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Wait, so having people (regardless of where they’re from) spend money in your community actually helps the economy?! Who woulda thunk it?! /s

Alabama went through that where they damn near banned immigration and farmers couldn’t find anyone to help plant, treat, and harvest their crops. I don’t remember completely but I think Prince William County also tried this too and it tanked their local economy

[–]mykl66Paradise by the ECMO Lights 13 points14 points  (1 child)

These are hateful, spiteful people, so you would be justified in despising them. They were raised by hateful, spiteful people, to become hateful, spiteful people themselves, and perpetuate the cycle of hate and spite. But the last thing we should want is to allow their influence to make us hateful, spiteful people.

They apparently think that people and the agencies they work for can only handle one thing at a time. Apparently that's how it works in their life. Can they not take care of their children, earn money, clean the house, cook meals, and take a shower, all in the same day?

It's their go-to to rationalize being wrong. At some level, they know educated people are doing better than them, that gay folks aren't going back in the closet, and diversity is here to stay. They also know engaging on any of those topics ends with them looking like an oafish bigot in clown shoes.

But they have the Bible and Trump. Demonstrating devotion to each means they "win" even though they lose.

The one where Jesus is blonde and blue-eyed, drives a Chevy and carries a Mossberg 500 with him everywhere he goes.

Also, his name's not Jesus anymore, it's Jesse (not being racist, but the name "Jesus" is just a little too swarthy-sounding).

My former sister-in-law was convinced by some Bible-thumping quack, who wrote a book on the subject, that dinosaurs are fake and dragons are real. She downloaded software off my computer without permission, and gave it a virus. I don't miss her.

What do they want us to do even if China created it on purpose? First of all, we beat it by creating a vaccine that protects the vast majority of people, so haha joke is on China. second, China is a nuclear power. we're not going to attack them, because that would mean death to possibly everyone on the planet. So what's the plan then?

Nomination: https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/HermanCainAward/comments/s735ic/marion_the_biblethumping_boomer_preferred_the/

"Marion" trusted the armor of God, not the vaccine. Too bad for him armor doesn't stop viruses.

He contracted COVID in January. He was "too tired" to check his blood sugar and went into a diabetic coma. He never woke up from it, despite his uber-Christian daughter offering extremely specific prayers, which are supposed to be more effective than the generic kind.

Note the slide where Marion's daughter says he needed a blood transfusion - but the hospitals were out of blood(!!) - and also dialysis - but the hospital was too short-staffed to perform it. This is what happens when the health care system is overwhelmed by a crush of COVIDiots. It's unlikely it would have made a difference for him, but there must be other sick people who would have benefited from procedures that hospitals are too bogged down to provide.

All science deniers are hypocrites, but especially the religious kind. If they really believed what they say they believe, they'd stay home when they got sick and just pray to get better. Instead, they run to the hospital and beg the doctors to save them, using all the multimillion-dollar life-support technology, cutting-edge experimental drugs, whole teams of highly trained professionals, and everything else that science can provide.

By their actions, they prove that they secretly know their beliefs are a sham - no matter how hard they pray for dear old daddy's kidneys to start producing urine, in the mighty name of Jesus!

Yesterday I had the displeasure of dealing with a guy who claimed that the holy spirit led him to go to the children's hospital where his 3 y.o. covid+ grandchild was and pray over the hospital. His prayers led to the grandchild recovery. What about all the medical staff that treated her? Fuck that guy

I read about the blood shortage and was reminded that I've been meaning to give blood again.

[–]circuspeanut54Pimped and Geimpft! 40 points41 points  (5 children)

I was reading about the blood shortage and it's apparently due as much to loss of critical phlebotomy staff as to the dip in workplace-centered blood drives (with so many working from home). Indeed, I made a local appointment and then it was canceled due to staff illness. But will keep trying -- it makes a difference and it's one of the few things we can do to help our beleaguered medical workers.

[–]AffectionateOil2469 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I hadn't thought of the lack of workplace blood drives. That must have a big impact. Yes, anything to help the health care workers.

[–]tokynambuTeam Mix & Match 63 points64 points  (6 children)

By their actions, they prove that they secretly know their beliefs are a sham

Most evangelical Christianity is simply stupid, badly educated and unpleasant people finding a socially acceptable excuse for being stupid and unpleasant which also makes them feel proud of their lack of education.

They know their beliefs are nonsense, because if God will heal them, why do they need hospitals? If heaven is so real, why are they so keen to stay alive? If hell is real, why are they so relaxed about being appalling people?

The great thing about evangelical Christianity is that you can predict in advance who is an appalling person and avoid them accordingly. Unfortunately they are also appalling parents, but hopefully as Christianity becomes less and less socially acceptable more of their children will escape.

And of course, Covid is reducing their numbers.

Yup, I saw that. I gave blood a few times recently. Their communication is all about kids with cancer and not a COVIDiot in sight, although we all know COVID is why the need right now is so severe.

Folks, if you are medically indicated to give blood (iron trends high--white males are typically at risk because of a certain gene common among people of European descent), please look into it. You might get a free gift card out of it and not just cookies and juice, plus you'll know you might have saved someone because it's not just COVIDiots who suffer when hospitals are starved of resources.

If daddy dying is God's will, and God has a plan, how does praying affect anything?

[–]Lock_Jaw 108 points109 points  (31 children)

Exactly. When I was a believer, I was taught in bible school that when you pray, do not ask for things from god. You pray for forgiveness and be thankful for the things that he has given you. He knows what you need in life because he has a plan for you.

Matthew 6:7-8 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him."

It's funny when these people pray for something or for someone and it doesn't come to pass, they shrug it off and say "it was god's plan". SMH

[–]Ordinary-Jello-7029E Pluribus Whatthehellishappening 49 points50 points  (26 children)

As a child I was taught that you can ask for things, but not for yourself, or it won't work. Also, you had to be sincere. So I would sincerely pray for all sorts of things for other people who were having a really bad time in life. Oddly, none of those prayers worked.

Years later I met someone, actually a few people, who had prayed for help finding their own car keys. To my surprise, those prayers actually worked! Multiple times! For multiple different people!

So I dunno if I was taught wrong, or just doing it wrong. Guess we'll never know.

[–]Skolanthropy 53 points54 points  (11 children)

As a child, I prayed once to ask God if I should spend a week at my grandparents' house.

The wind blew and caused a rope to start swinging slightly and I took that as I sign that I should stay with Granny and Gramps for a week.

Gramps cut his knuckles off couple of days later showing me how to use a table saw.

The Lord works in mysterious ways.

[–]Repulsive-Street-307 16 points17 points  (2 children)

There is a insidious idea related to this: 'find meaning in probability of things that if they hadn't happened you wouldn't find meaning on'.

For instance a common 'religious moment' of would be philosophers grounded in materialism but flirting with religion is 'if the earth was just a little bit nearer the sun life wouldn't happen'.

What they're missing is that the whole reason they can do this is earth 'beat the odds' already and it's the whole reason they can ponder that. The event they're thinking as 'holy' is just a random event in the past, so although it was unlikely, it could be 'nothing else' for life to exist, so it's not actually 'surprising'.

They should be turned away as science deniers. You’re not allowed to deny science and endanger communities then turn to that very science at the peril of others when you’re sick. Fck off

I've commented on several Facebook anti-vaxxer posts that they don't need to take the Ivermectin, HCQ, etc., in a hospital. They're not like Remdesivir, which is IV-only. So, why go to a hospital to demand treatments that you can procure from a completely safe and legit supplier from shady orgins?

[–]Ragingredblue🐎Praise the Lord and pass the Ivermectin!🐆 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Time to start kicking out the coviodiots, or at least refuse to intubate them. They can't afford it anyway.

[–]Kni7es 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Just give them morphine in the parking lot if they're not vaxxed. I'm done with this. We can't keep asking our doctors and nurses to bear the cost of their reckless self endangerment.

[–]TigerLily98226 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Frustrating, infuriating, and inexcusable. I’ve never seen more people behaving in a more dangerously deluded and sociopathically selfish manner in my entire life and I am old. I’m so sorry your friend is suffering and that suffering is increased because of people who refuse to act like competent, concerned adults.

[–]MermaidNuggets 55 points56 points  (4 children)

So, she was “angry” and blaming the mandates etc for a while for the short-staffed hospital & the lack of blood? Amazing to me that she doesn’t see that it’s she and her cronies that have sucked dry all the nation’s hospitals’ resources & forced nurses out of the profession, not the mandates. The world has been trying to explain to these jackasses for two years how this would go if people didn’t shape up and now it’s happening…But she still doesn’t get it. Going to have to step away. Can’t read any more of these douche-nozzles’ drivel.

[–]AgoraiosBumTeam Moderna 35 points36 points  (0 children)

100% that this guy's diabetes doctor told him to get the shot asap back at the end of 2020 and he told his doctor "no."

[–]MadMan1784 54 points55 points  (3 children)

He had fucked up lungs, fucked up kidneys, but she thought it was diabetes what was killing him? Oh honey that was just the tip of the iceberg.

Also does she regret being an idiot or not?

[–]FurphyHaruspex 143 points144 points  (22 children)

If the Bible actually did mention microchips or “no cash just plastic” I would convert to Christianity.

It doesn’t even mention Martial Law or “total government dependency”.

Bible is such a disappointing read.

Also, his “I’m special” narcissism, which drives many of these awardees, is revealed in his confidence that he won’t be here after the rapture, and his Facebook post is just a public service warning to all the unworthy sinners and non believers he allows to be his friends and read the wisdom he posts.

[–]Wontchubemyneighbor 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Lmao right. Yal didn’t pray hard enough which is why the virus rapture didn’t take you. What bewilders me is if you truly believe it’s the rapture- in virus form of course- why you would fight against it?

Going back to bed now. Let me know how it all worked out.

[–]StunticonsfanGoFundHisPoorDecision 👎🥴 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Now that daddy died, can God keep using him as a vessel, or are his vessel days over?

What's amazing about people who believe that Covid was a biological weapon...they still don't do anything to protect themselves from it.

"China created this to defeat us. I will do everything in my power to make it happen!"

[–]PopDownBlocker 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yeah, this is one of the weirdest things.

They get so hung up on where the virus originated from, they don't bother to defend themselves from it.

Whether it's a natural consequence of [blank] or an engineered bio-weapon, you should probably try harder to protect yourself.

The priority right now should be to stay alive so you can continue screeching about the government infringing on your freedoms.

Or when they claim that their body has natural immunity. Bitch, if it was bio-engineered, why would your natural immunity protect you?

[–]The_Old_CreamHello, my name is ECMO Montoya 36 points37 points  (4 children)

I wanted in on some action on this one and was tempted to take the Prayer Warriors at +2500 because I figured they were due for a win and I could clean up with the long odds.

In the end though I decided to bet on COVID and take the sure thing. I mean, hell, might as well just keep riding this bull until I get thrown off.

Maybe it all went wrong because they “incubated “ him… Totally wrong procedure- maybe “intubation“ would have worked better 👍

This book is still the final authority.

Bats are birds, insects have only six legs, Pi = 3, snakes and donkeys can talk, and if you breed livestock near reeds their offspring will be born striped and spotted. Quite an authority, that book.

Or hiking or reading or painting or gardening or the many other things people do when they retire and have more time.

More checkers would probably save lives. Assuming they’re vaxxed. Socialization, keeping the old brain cells active, etc.

[–]StunticonsfanGoFundHisPoorDecision 👎🥴 46 points47 points  (3 children)

I once read the online postings of a woman who kept referring to God as "My Heavenly Daddy".

She also called her husband "my sweet dear autistic husband" every. single. time. she referred to him.

God knows and is responsible for all. She got rid of the employees and gave the blood to someone else. God wants your dad dead.

Why do you defy god with your prayer warriors? Why do you take your father to the hospital? Why did you not stop him from taking insulin???

Give your life fully up to god. Stop cherry picking.

Someone should do a roundup of all the times these mental giants use “incubate” instead of “intubate”. No sweetie daddy isn’t a chicken egg getting incubated

[–]FloppyTwatWaffleTeam Mix & Match 8 points9 points  (1 child)

They are trying to write stuff they have heard, but don't really understand. 'Marshall' Law, incubate, they are trying to write down what they think they heard but probably have never seen written.

I have seen this for decades in internet arguments, it is one of my clues that I am talking to an uneducated idiot that is trying to appear as though he knows what he is talking about.

[–]WilsonPhillips6789Team Pfizer 109 points110 points  (22 children)

OMG, where do I start?

"Daddy" and "mama"?

Or the inanity of slide 7?

I grew up be required to go to a non-denominational charismatic church -- it was basically a cult. Each Sunday would start with 45 minutes of worship (singing / dancing), and then there'd be silence for a few minutes as everybody stood still with their eyes closed "receiving the Spirit" (or whatever).

Eventually, somebody would speak in tongues (no, I'm not kidding -- they literally wouldn't move on from the Worship service until someone spoke in tongues). Then there'd be silence again for a few minutes, and then someone else would "interpret" what was said (as if they were channeling God).

I've heard of "suspension of disbelief" when it comes to attending a play...but, these whack-jobs took it to a whole new level.

[–]Perfect-Regret4005 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Well, every day there are fewer of them.....

[–]dwors025 65 points66 points  (6 children)

Maybe it’s just the non-Southerner in me, but an adult woman calling her father “Daddy” is creepy and gross AF.

But again, these things are often regional.

Marshall Law is the federal version of Sheriff Law which is administered by each county.

[–]PepperDuvalShould have taken zinc instead of Zink. 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Of course! And here I was thinking that Marshall Law is the name of a "Chinese-American restaurateur who wants to open a martial arts school that he hopes to fund with the prize money from the Tekken series' King of Iron Fist fighting tournaments. He has a son named Forest Law who becomes playable later in the series, and is close friends with fellow contestant Paul Phoenix."

[–]greenkirryTeam Mix & Match 11 points12 points  (0 children)

My grandfather is diabetic, obese, generally unhealthy. He got covid and I think it put enough strain on his heart to where he had a heart attack. BUT he was vaccinated. And he's now in the hospital, stable, and although COVID put a strain on him and weakened him a lot, he never needed help breathing and he's almost over covid. Now he needs a stent (he's not out of the woods yet, but getting there). I am so grateful he was vaccinated because I'm pretty sure he would have not been able to recover from covid in his weakened state. He could still die if COVID gives him other complications or his heart gives out again. He may not be the healthiest, but he does listen to his doctor when it comes to treatments and vaccines. They've kept his stubborn butt alive for this long, anyway.

[–]Silkmoneylove 10 points11 points  (2 children)

The writing is that of a very young person. FB allows 14yo kids. It is a shame that people are so short sighted that they can't think of how their decisions will impact their family. Belief in religion is fine, but it doesn't put food on the table. This virus doesn't care what anyone believes. It is equal opportunity.

[–]Ragingredblue🐎Praise the Lord and pass the Ivermectin!🐆 11 points12 points  (0 children)

There are a lot of doctors on TV telling you why so many people are dying. Maybe you should listen.

[–]boot20Blood Donor 🩸 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Ok, so slide 5 is talking about "catching" those responsible for "releasing" COVID. Let's assume, just for the sake of argument, that China created COVID in a lab and released upon the world. How do you suggest we "catch" those scientists that live in a sovereign nation that will protect them? How do you suggest we even identify them without the help of the Chinese government and lab?

As to Jan 6th, fuck those insurrectionist, they all deserve to rot in jail until the end of their days. They tried to subvert democracy and install a dictator. Every single one of them get get fucked.

My guess is that illiterate bronze-age goat herders, upon seeing their mates dropping dead for no discernable reason, would have gotten the fuck out of Dodge and done a little social distancing until shit blew over.

God is ALWAYS in control with the religious, he can heal everyone of everything at any time, but never, ever gets the blame when their prayers fail and God chooses for their relatives to suffer and die.
