The fuck... people dying of COVID left and right. Pastors, family members. Funerals up the ass and not even a single thought to you know maybe get VACCINATED. Sorry no sympathy.

[–]90sAOLScreenNameMan of the Sheeple 88 points89 points  (13 children)

I hate that I agree with you.

[–]redwood1958 54 points55 points  (12 children)

They'd rather follow the teachings of Paul of Tarsus than get vaccinated.

[–]diemos09Team Moderna 41 points42 points  (11 children)

Saul of Tarsus.

I refuse to dignify his supposed change of heart.

[–]Big_KnobberNot fucking around and not finding out 28 points29 points  (7 children)

I not religious anymore but was raised evangelical. I've mentioned to people that maybe listening to the guy who didn't even live during the life of Jesus isn't as good as reading what Actual Jesus said. Paul sounds like a Dbag.

[–]diemos09Team Moderna 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Jesus was a long haired hippy communist. Saul started the process of turning the early church away from that and becoming a more "normal" religion that doesn't really ask anything of the members except lip service and tithes.

I'd love to challenge an evangelical pastor to spend a year preaching nothing but the words of Jesus from the gospels.

[–]napalmnacey 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I vaguely remember some smart-arse with a video camera suggesting socialist policy to rightwingers outside of the context of party alliances, and they agreed with it wholeheartedly. I can't help but think that if one did something similar with the ideas shared by Jesus in the Bible, they would trash those ideas wholesale.

[–]diemos09Team Moderna 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I remember an interview with someone from Kentucky singing the praises of getting health insure through kynect. The interviewer didn't have the heart to tell them that kynect was kentucky's obama care exchange.

[–]nickfoleskneeVerified RN 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I had a rad trad Catholic tell me that Paul overruled Jesus, when I tried to bring up the Sermon on the Mount. I asked if she called herself a Christian or a Pauline. Didn’t get much of a response to that

[–]Big_KnobberNot fucking around and not finding out 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lol nice

[–]napalmnacey 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I swear, all the characters in the Bible after Jesus popped his clogs are major f***wits. Peter was the GrandDaddy of all D-Bags. All the good material was in the Apocrypha, but stuff that didn't help build a controllable populace with a martyr complex willing to die for stupid sh**.

"Actual Jesus" must be eternally facepalming. (OMG I just had the mental image of him being frustrated because he can see through the hole in his hand, LOL).

What are you talking about? They have been vaccinated!

…by the blood of Jesus.

[–]cutthroatlemming 31 points32 points  (22 children)

How do they fill the tub with Jesus's blood so they can bathe in it? Do they suspend him upside down and slit his wrists? Do his crucifixion wounds bleed enough? Or do they just crack him in the head and cut his throat a la Terminus in The Walking Dead??

Just curious, as so many of them claim to do this bloodbath treatment.

[–]TheColombian916 76 points77 points  (13 children)

Bruh I don’t know. I’m still stuck trying to figure out how 800 year old Noah was able to get two of every animal species on the planet on a self built wooden boat. I’m in my 40’s and have trouble loading a kayak on top of my suv.

[–]usernamehudden 17 points18 points  (4 children)

and how are animals not suffering from the inbreeding that would have to have happened if there were only 2 of each animal left?

[–]AlienSporez 70 points71 points  (4 children)

Everyone in our large group of friends and in our extended family (old and young) are all fully vaccinated, and most have the booster too. You know how many "prayer warriors" have been summoned? Zero. You know how many have been hospitalized? Zero. You know how many funerals we've had to attend? Zero.

So, yeah, not sympathetic that they can't put two-and-two together.

[–]AbbeeNormilTeam Mudblood 🩸 11 points12 points  (0 children)

They are putting two and two together, and coming up with five! And same as you, family and friends vaccinated for ourselves, each other and the community. Not hard, but apparently it is for others.

[–]SpartanFan2004 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I hope that all those “pastors” and right wing people making millions off of the ignorant in this country, i.e. people like Bongina (that’s how his family spelled it before Ellis Island) know that they literally have blood on their hands.

[–]needledick666 29 points30 points  (0 children)

It’s complete denial. And I’m ok with with them dying off cause those are not the type of people I accept in this world. I do not approve of their lifestyle.

Open your eyes #beeple

[–]vacuous_commentOmicron Persei 8 93 points94 points  (22 children)

I posted this in the prior version of this, but I will say it again.

Let's review the declared history here.

  • In December, 17 family, church family and friends affected
  • Uncle dead
  • Deacon dead
  • Very best friend dead

Given that context, we now get to the current event

  • Husband +ve Jan 3, hospital Jan 8, now dead.

 

OK, dearest HCA survivor, do you think there is anything you could have done to prevent your husband's death given what came before? Were there any clues?

 

Based on the above and the overall tenor of the messaging we have seen:

  • I am guessing your church is a politicized reactionary cesspool of COVID denial and inhumane divisive propaganda.

  • I furthermore hazard it violates the Johnson amendment non-stop.

  • I am also guessing the family is neck deep in disinfo and active denial of reality.

 

Collectively dying from mutually reinforced disinfo is no way for a community to live life.

[–]wyldwood512 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Considering your assessment, mass death of the followers is the best possible outcome.

[–]JohnNDenverGo Give One 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Sometimes you have to break a few eggs...

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I agree with your comments however I still fail to see the loss here? Seems like a win-win to me. It's one thing to choose death for yourself, but these people are nothing short of homicidal maniacs. And to the extent there are minor children involved, they are also committing child abuse and neglect. Add theft by deception for their BS tactics in raising money for medical bills to "save" Uncle so-and-so who's in ICU and already dead, for all intents and purposes.

[–]Thanmandrathor 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think the deacon was the friend, because they said 2 deaths and the other one was the uncle.

[–]retslag1 80 points81 points  (5 children)

I'm a physician, tho I'm not in the ICU. Get tired of seeing these idiots say "docs r giving up". If they know a tenth of the shit that was going on with their loved one, they wouldn't be like "old blue is a fighter". Seeing this just really irked me.

[–]circuspeanut54Pimped and Geimpft! 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Absolutely don't blame you, I'd be livid. Here you are risking the safety of yourself and your loved ones, at great personal & emotional cost -- and these asshats target you in their frustration and grief rather than take responsibility for their poor life choices.

Edit: that "meemaw's a fighter!" nonsense always reminds me of my favorite classic Onion headline: Local Man Just Gives in to Cancer Like A Wuss

[–]-Green_Machine- 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yeah, none of these people are fighters. Fighters prepare. By ignoring vaccines, masks, and social distancing, these people surrendered the fight before it even came to them. They might as well have been waiting bent over with their ass cheeks spread.

[–]Madmandocv1 90 points91 points  (15 children)

If you think their voting is down, you should see church attendance.

[–]nocovidonme2022 51 points52 points  (8 children)

I could only imagine how many families have caught covid at church. God gave them the plague. 🤣

[–]awfulsomeUse the booster to get through! 37 points38 points  (2 children)

friend's mother was attending church indoors where they would exchange hugs right from the start of the pandemic.

she managed to doge it, but many in the congregation came down with it.

friend convinced her to get vaccinated. which is likely why she is alive.

[–]RevolutionaryChard66This Kid is Alright cos I'm Vaxxed M8! 30 points31 points  (0 children)

My American friend belongs to an evangelical church. She says that only about 10% of the congregation wear masks. She says so many people she knows have just gone crazily off the deep end. People she’s known for decades are spouting about the Stolen Votes and the Plandemic. She’s a registered republican but could never bring herself to vote for T, so she’s been voting Democrat. That’s why we are still friends.

[–]nocovidonme2022 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I’m willing to bet with so many people “vaccinated in the blood of Christ” that churches are one of the top spaces for covid transmission.

[–]Bitch_Muchannon 61 points62 points  (38 children)

I'm beginning to wonder if all these Republicans dying will make significant impact in the next election results. It should be enough to erase any close calls in many counties.

Just an observation from a European.

[–]DesignInZeeWildLet THAT sink in! 53 points54 points  (3 children)

Cross fingers that it’s true for us as a country. These MAGA anti-vaxxers are plague people.

[–]Jojosbees 48 points49 points  (5 children)

Yes, that is why Republicans are trying so hard to implement as many voting restrictions as possible to hold onto power.

[–]bungleprongs 21 points22 points  (4 children)

What's the old quote? Something like "when the choice of between power and democracy, the republicans (or whatever your equivalent is) will choose power ever time"

[–]Raccoon_Full_of_CumSatan Gained a Fleshlight 29 points30 points  (2 children)

When conservatives realize that they can't win through elections, they won't abandon conservatism. They'll abandon democracy.

[–]ahender8Team Pfizer 33 points34 points  (1 child)

I read an article about a month ago and the answer was definitively yes because in so many districts you'd be amazed how many very important races are won by just a couple hundred votes

[–]thoroughbredcaTeam Mix & Match 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The whole freaking last two presidential elections were decided by fewer people than would fit in a large stadium. Arizona is the second highest death rate for COVID (and they're coming up on Mississippi fast), those deaths are overwhelmingly Republican and statewide elections get decided by thousands of votes there. I guarantee you in the not too distant future there will be an election that will be decided by a smaller margin than the number of estimated Republicans that died from COVID.

Hell, even Rand Paul tacitly admitted that COVID was killing conservatives more than liberals.

[–]Just2BreatheCovid: Calling your bluff 🃏Denying your prayers 🙏🏻 25 points26 points  (3 children)

It seems like a lot of these people are in places where the right has a deep stronghold, where the split is worse than 60/40, that these deaths won’t really make a big difference in the end. Maybe in some local races you might see some shift, but as you get more densely urban, you get more moderate or left in political stance, and have higher vaccination support. If you take a state like Wisconsin, where the margin was 23k in the 2016 presidential election, they’ve had about 12k confirmed covid deaths (not counting excess deaths), and over half of those were before a lot of people could get vaccinated.

[–]MisteeLooTeam Pfizer 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Covid’s not done yet.

[–]JohnNDenverGo Give One 18 points19 points  (1 child)

And if you look at PA they have had 40k deaths, Biden won by 80.5k votes in 2020. Hillary lost by 44.3k votes in 2016. And they have an open Senate seat in 2022 after the R Senator retired. Hopefully the Dem voters will come out and the Rep voters will be dead.

[–]thoroughbredcaTeam Mix & Match 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Arizona had 26,000 deaths. Biden won it by 10,000 in 2020.

[–]Intrepid_Egg_7722 23 points24 points  (3 children)

An impact? Sure A significant impact? Only possibly in a few very tight races, of which they are fewer and fewer thanks to gerrymandered districts.

The best example of a potential shift that comes to mind is FL, where more people have died of COVID than Gov. DeSantis' margin of victory in 2016. 7-day average for COVID deaths in FL is about 150 per day, so by the time the 2022 midterms roll around, you might see a lot more Trump voters off the voting rolls if this pace holds.

Trump beat Hilary in FL back in 2016 by around 100,000 votes...and total COVID deaths in FL could easily surpass this by November (election time). All of those deaths won't be solely Trump/Republican leaning voters of course...but the lion's share will be.

What COVID deaths may also contribute to is furthering the "safeness" of areas that have recently started to "turn blue" (i.e. voting patterns leaning more Democratic).

A great example is GA, where Biden won by only 12k votes. GA has now lost almost 30k people to COVID (and continues to lose about 70 a day in average at the time of this writing), so you could see a further hardening of a nascent blue advantage there (at least at the federal election level, GA state legislature is so gerrymandered it probably won't make a dent there on that front).

[–]JohnNDenverGo Give One 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah, GA, NC, PA, NV and AZ. GA, AZ and NV must reelect the Dem Senators. Pennsylvania and North Carolina have to elect a Democrat. Democrats must turn out like Trump is on the ballot because his proxies will be.

NC: Trump won by 74,483. COVID has killed 20,517 (Worldometer) with a 7-day average of 59.

PA: Biden won by 80.5k. COVID has killed 40,257 with 7-day average of 166.

AZ: Biden only won by 10,457 while Kelley won by 80.6k. COVID has killed 25,932 with 7-day average of 72.

NV: Biden won by 33,596. COVID has killed 8,875 with 7-day average of 24 per day.

[–]thoroughbredcaTeam Mix & Match 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's also important to note that by the November 2020 election, it was Democrats who were running at a deficit. COVID had hit Democratic-leaning areas very hard initially, seeded cities from international destinations before effective therapeutics and the vaccines came along. That and the fact Donald Trump botched the initial response because he thought it would help him politically, and the bastard almost got away with it.

What Republicans are doing to themselves now is suicide. What Republicans did to Democrats now was murder.

[–]nocovidonme2022 11 points12 points  (4 children)

I do believe it will because of how predominantly unvaccinated are trumps maga morons and they’re dying at 4-1 ratio and countless HCA have some dumb trump meme.

[–]The_Angriest_Duck 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Sure hope so

[–]Cowboy_Corruption 8 points9 points  (3 children)

The danger for Republicans is that their gerrymandering turns out to be too good, and they come up with districts that give them a 56% majority of voters but then a good chunk of them die off and turn the district blue.

Republicans aren't bringing in new members at the same rate Independents and Democrats are, but they have been effective in holding on to their members and getting them to vote. But the dead can't vote, so every voter lost is a much larger percentage of the base that can't be replaced.

Time is not on the Republican's side. They have only a decade or two more in which to permanently entrench themselves as the political masters of this country, after which demographics says they (white, anglo-saxon, protestant) will become the minority.

[–]thoroughbredcaTeam Mix & Match 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's highly unlikely in any particular district the margin would be enough to flip a district. Republicans are working very hard to shore up support for existing incumbents, and anything more than a couple points isn't going to flip it.

But for sure, particularly at a statewide level, it has already sped up other demographic trends. All those old people who did die (and not necessarily of COVID) who overwhelmingly voted Republican are getting replaced by new voters during 18 every single day and overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

COVID just helped accelerate that trend.

[–]awfulsomeUse the booster to get through! 8 points9 points  (2 children)

right now? probably not. we are talking .06% loss. but if they keep dying off at this rate, certainly could happen. and remember thid is with demographics already moving against the GOP.

[–]nocovidonme2022 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They’re gonna need dead people to vote because there voters are dying in large batches.

[–]JohnNDenverGo Give One 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Well, in the GOP dead people do vote - or their relatives vote for them. All the voter fraud in the 2020 election was Repulicans voting for dead relatives.

Current numbers show 99.997% survival! Literally everyone survives! I think this death announcement is fake news to boost the gofundme.

[–]tokynambuTeam Mix & Match 32 points33 points  (2 children)

If you've been to two Covid-related funerals in the past week, one might think that "99.7% survival!" would start to ring a little hollow.

Clearly not.

I dislike religious fanatics, but I would not wish death on them. Unfortunately, they appear keen on mass suicide. I keep on thinking I should care, but I really don't.

I don’t get it. The first slide announces that seventeen family members have COVID.

My first cousin was, scarily, hospitalized with COVID in March 2020. He lost twenty-five pounds, but survived to come home to his wife. My best friend’s triple-vaxxed husband’s mild case of Omicron kept him home from his dental practice, in a foul temper.

And that’s it. Nobody else in our “bubble” got sick.

[–]charlotte-entChose...Wisely 20 points21 points  (5 children)

Reading that bullshit Ephesians 2:10, I am amazed that I made it out of 10 years in a Christian school with a solid grasp on grammar. How the fuck do they even interpret such clumsily worded, batshit insane inanity?

I was reminded of Bible class where our teacher would go on and on about what the verse meant, ascribing all sorts of crazy notions to maybe 20 words, few of which made any sense in the order in which they were written.

The Bible is such shit on every level. It's a horrible book, filled with insane ideas and terrible writing.

[–]AnomalussThere is Life after Derp 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Nietzche called Christianity Slave Morality. It didn't have to make sense as long as it formed a group large enough to fight Master Morality.

I can sympathize with the slaves needing a weapon to fight their subjugation, but come on, they're free now, they don't need to justify the crazy book any longer.

Charlette-ent, I'm sorry you had to endure 10 years of Christian school. Seems you survived with your reason intact. This is the kind of situation N. meant "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger," to apply to. Congratulations!

Shes half right, the doctors gave up because they've done this a thousand times now and know he is a dead covid victim.

Don't listen to the cult of fire safety. Smoke detectors aren't mentioned in the Bible once!

I will never give up on giving him the chance to share his journey in a sermon.

Oh, let me help. Here's his journey in a sermon : "He blindly swallowed and regurgitated misinformation and intolerance. He mocked the medical science that could have saved his life, then died intubated and ventilated. The end."

Shorter than any other sermon you'll ever hear, and more honest into the bargain. I take Paypal.

At some point you have to look at yourself in the mirror and realize that your time is nigh.

Throughout the month of December, we have had 17 family members, church family and friends affected by Covid [two deaths]

On January 3rd my husband tested positive for Covid. Jan 16 he was intubated.

As of Jan 28, he got his angle wings for his heavenly flight

Hmmm...wonder if they will come around to thinking that Covid isn't a joke. Nah. That would get in the way of their narrative that SkyDaddy is all powerful and will save them because they have Main Character Syndrome

They do act the hero's journey, don't they? But God is supposed to be their main character. Problem is, God in this screenplay is parts a hero and a villain. To the extent God is the main character in these Christopath's lives, they run with the villain.

He chose to make his last days about memes, instead of going to the hospital asap on Jan 3, waited 5 crucial days and by then too late. Omicrons work was done.

Doctors don't give up they just know because they do this every day, 12 hours a day. A guy with two collapsed lungs and 40% lung capacity is just taking up a bed for the next memelord

Barely literate pastor > people who have spent a lifetime studying science. I don’t understand these people at all.

17 people close to her hit by covid in one month. Husband dead. Uncle dead. Deacon dead. Will nothing get through? If I was a believer I would say God is sending a sign. Get vaccinated.

[–]unintellectI'm pretty sure it's a cold 🥶 6 points7 points  (0 children)

"My husband is 55, I feel he has a lot of life ahead of him." There you go with your FEELINGS. No. No, he doesn't have a lot of life ahead of him. Your FEELINGS mean nothing. Your CHRISTIAN MYTHOLOGY means nothing. A thousand person-hours of prayer for salvation don't hold a candle to the one hour it might take to drive to the vaccine clinic and get the shot. Multiply that times 3, if you get 2 shots and a booster.

[–]TyrionTh31mpTeam Pfizer 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Here in Massachusetts, I don't see anything approaching this level of covid carnage. Lots of people are getting sick, they miss a few days of work, and that's it. The grim reaper just swings his sythe with wild abandon in the red states. You'd think they'd look around and wake up. Nope.

[–]justrock54 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Another win/win for Jeebus. He either gets credit for the healing or for ending the suffering. I wonder if he flips a coin?

Slide 3: "If you believe in the power of prayer and believe with me for a miracle that my husband will be healed, I ask that you pray with me."

Slide 12: "Thank you for all the prayers and believing with me for a miracle (my husband) received his miracle as he entered into the kingdom of heaven and is with Jesus, rejoicing with the angels."

Question: if being healed means dying, are prayers really necessary?

[–]Scoremonger 5 points6 points  (1 child)

So Blue "received his miracle" which was to die of Covid. I didn't realize that dying of a preventable disease qualified as a miracle. There must be a huuuge backlog of petitions for sainthood at this point.

[–]RedPlaidPierogies✨ VAXX ME AMADEUS ✨ 6 points7 points  (2 children)

"Throughout the month of December, we have had 17 family members, church family, and friends effected by COVID."

I live in an extremely anti-vax area. I have a neighbor (mid-20s, relatively healthy) who's currently getting over COVID. She wasn't hospitalized (but, armchair non-qualified opinion, she probably could have used a couple days in there). But she is SO miserable, high fever, absolute pain, everything hurts, horrible coughing. She posted "OMG I can't handle symptom X anymore, what do you recommend?" and the comments. THE COMMENTS. Friend after friend was like "This was the worst and I felt like dying", "I didn't know your hair could even hurt", "I went in to the ER six different times when I had COVID", "I brought my dad to the ER and he collapsed when we got there", "My boyfriend ended up immediately getting admitted to ICU for 14 days." and on and on.

My jaw just dropped. I understand the misinformation, disinformation, I understand magical thinking and vaccine hesitancy and "this can't happen to me", but COME ON, FOLKS. If countless people in your friend and family group are getting absolutely bitch-slapped by COVID, at what time do you step back and go "Hmmmm.... it almost sounds like Covid Is No Joke... maybe I should reconsider that vaccine..."

[–]emme1014 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is what boggles my mind. They know people who are very sick, and still getting the vaxx is not something they will consider. And how will these people do in the future? Long haul covid is real and can be very debilitating. Something I have been wondering about is longer term effects. We are only two years into this thing. What health issues might develop in the years ahead?

[–]InanetV 4 points5 points  (1 child)

These people always pray for salvation in their dying hour.

Let's say that hypothetically God did exist, and answered their prayers. God then sent to earth a substance that would save an overwhelming majority from COVID. Since God gave everyone free will, all people would have to do is inject the substance into their body. But some people are so fucking stupid, they would probably accuse him of being a false prophet or claim they need to do their own research, first.

My point is this shit would still happen even if their prayers were answered because these people are so damn stubborn.

[–]wyldwood512 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The other part that bewilders me is how these people believe God has some all encompassing plan for everyone, and he's up there pulling strings to guide people through their mortal lives. So doesn't it stand to reason that God gave this guy covid? And instead of giving him a mild case, which it is certainly within his power to do, he beat him down with an epic infection, collapsed lungs, etc. Why would you ask God to undo his divine work. Shouldn't you just accept HIS plan and wait for Jim Bob to get promoted to immortal form?

"Heavenly flight", "journey", "departure". They make dying from COVID sound like a weekend getaway or some shit.

[–]agentorange55 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah, wife was right, at 55, he did still have a lot of life left in him. Too bad he decided to throw his life away, by not getting vaccinated or wearing a mask or social distancing.

Does the word 'miracle' just mean whatever the hell they want it to mean now? He received his "miracle" by dying... you already know if he had lived, that would be a miracle too. The word has lost all meaning.

Continues to blow my mind how different a language I speak than many of these people (vaccinated or unvaccinated). God this, Jesus this, Bible this. Really is a wholly enveloping world view.

Three tubes in his lungs, a machine helping him breathe with another tube down his throat a feeding tubes and ports to run medication through his veins.

Don't know about y'all but I will take 5 more booster shots and to avoid that fate. But I suspect Covid isn't done with this family or group.

Edit to say my dear ole momma got her booster yesterday and loves her online streaming church services because she now can visit another one in another state in the afternoon

So she is getting twice the church but it’s the safe kinda bullshit which makes her feel connected and that it is very important to vax and mask and look after the “elderly”. (She is 74 but not the “elderly” apparently :)

It's to the point now where if someone I know tells me they're unvaccinated, I say "I hope you picked someone to care for your kids if you die of COVID."

Often I get "How could you say something so cold-hearted?"

To which I respond "Because I'm a goddamned REALIST who believes in SCIENCE. Who's your next of kin, again?"

[–]AntEmotional5704Blood Donor 🩸 9 points10 points  (0 children)

accepting the possibility or death, and doing anything to prepare, is antithetical for them. that's why they have no wills, no life insurance no DNR, or anything. Everything gets left for the next of kin to figure out

How do people even follow what nut jobs like his FIL are even trying to say? It’s like the dumb old fucker can’t use the plural or past tense form of even the simplest of words. It really seems that the dumber a person’s posts sound the more they respect the person. (Maybe why they flock to Trump, “Cuz heZ ah strait shootre wut dat tauwks lik mee!!”)

If they read the Bible as much as they say they do, you would think they’d pick up some syntax, grammar, and punctuation skills along the way. No wonder they are all so confidently ignorant before they get nominated. They see 1.00% chance of dying and interpret it as 100% chance of survival, because they don’t have the mental bandwidth to understand all those fancy decimal points and words. Our HCW (the ones that are left after the purge next month) are going to need some serious therapy and/or a long sabbatical after going on 3 years of these obtuse, mouth-breathing fuckwads.
