While I find this a tragic statistic (if completely factual), it helps explain why the GQP are so desperate to enact draconian voter suppression laws.

Or they could just stop bullshitting their supporters and tell them to get vaccinated. What kind of moronic political movement commits genocide against its own side?

We have become to political when on a persons deathbed they are asked which party do they vote for.

Skud... We have become too political when people make stupid statements trying to make a political statement without thinking.

Tyson's numbers are not derived from asking dying people their political party. Rather we arrive at the numbers based on statistical probability and extrapolation. Remember that statistics class from college? Stuff like mean, mode and median.

It's math. Something we've learned and been living with since Archimedes.

This virus (in one form or another) is going to be with us for quite a while. Not to mention other illnesses that will need vaccinations to halt.
The flu kills about 50,000 people every year, yet, we have vaccines to stop its effects. Do the anti-vaccine crowd refuse the yearly flu shot? The flu this last season killed less than 5,000 people. Maybe that's because most Americans were wearing masks. So let the "heard" be culled by their own stupidity. That's one way to eliminate votes from their side.

I rather think folks who are willing to die, or see their loved ones die, out of ssupport of a strawman political cause about freedumb are the ones making it too political.

As per a comment on one of Minus FJ's blogs, it's Black people who are responsible for the "pandemic of the unvaccinated". "Thought Criminal" (formerly known as "Beamish") says white republicans are being denied access to the vaccine by the Biden administration. They actually want, but can't get vaccinated. Apparently this is some insidious plan by President Biden to kill republicans. He also says he isn't getting vaccinated because it's pointless -- given that bats aren't being vaccinated or being required to wear masks.
