A new NBCLX analysis details the high cost of low vaccination:
In 2021, the states with America’s lowest vaccination rates lost residents to COVID at a rate two to five times higher than states with high vaccination rates.
“Certainly you can attribute a substantial number of COVID deaths to a mistrust of public health measures, and you could probably attribute a certain amount of that to political and social trends that have happened over the past decade or more,” Dowdy said. “So I think it's fair to say that those trends have killed people.”
They sure did own the libs by killing themselves, didn't they.

You do remember Ethan Crumbly, don't you?
Here's a billet doux written by his mother, Jennifer Crumbly, to Donald Trump.
But it could have been written by any of Trump's female cultists -- especially those on The Mother Ship who adore the guy who's been impeached twice and incited an insurrection against his own government and vice president. In fact, much of what Mrs. Cumbly writes sounds EXACTLY like what the women on the Mother Ship write about Trump on a daily basis.
This is stomach-turning:
Yeah. That "hard working Middle Class Law Abiding Citizen" gave her disturbed 15-year-old son a lethal weapon (which is illegal in Michigan), ignored his obvious mental instability; and when her son was arrested for killing 4 and maiming 7 others at his school, this "hard working Middle Class Law Abiding Citizen" took off with her husband and hid from the authorities.
Sounds just about right for a Trump cultist.
South Dakota Republican Governor Noem lied to her people when she claimed that the stimulus money from President Biden's policies would go to other states if she refused it. That's not true (What a surprise! She lied!), that money would go back to the Treasury Department. Gov. Noem is taking the money and, like other GQP governors, is taking credit for being able to spend it on badly needed infrastructure programs that she was against.
Oh the hypocrisy!
Here's what we're up against: STUPIDITY, against which even the gods contend in vain.

Forget about seeing anything about these jaw-droppingly explosive revelations about the GOP Trump enablers on any Trump-supporting blog or news site. Those GOP news sites and blogs will continue to pretend this assault on the very foundation of our democracy didn't happen or was nothing more than "a tiny bit of rowdiness." That's because they're cultists, and cultists never see their cult leader as anything but a hero, no matter how evil, how crazy, or how big a liar he is.
In fact, these revelations (from actual GOP emails) from Trump's inner circle will prove how Trump tried to pervert our democracy, steal an election, and have his thugs assault his own vice president so that he, Trump, could decertify the electoral college votes and install himself as the illegitimate POTUS.
Everyone's hair should be on fire!
The House committee now has solid evidence of Donald J. Trump's coup to overthrow the government of the United States.
"The extent of this effort reached the highest levels of our government, and it runs right through Mr. Meadows.”
In “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” one’s true love bestows, among other things, a partridge, two turtle doves, three French hens, and four calling birds. Right? Maybe not. The “calling” birds were originally “colly” birds, according to a blog post by Peter Armenti, the literature specialist for the Digital Reference Section at the Library of Congress. “Colly bird?”
It’s essentially a black bird, Armenti said Wednesday. Although both “calling” and “colly” have appeared in versions of the song, “colly,” which is derived from the Old English word for coal, predates “calling” by more than a century, he wrote. And the reference is to the color of the bird, not its voice.
I'll never be the same!
everyone's heard about the homeless, and probably mentally disturbed, man who set fire to the FAUX NOOZ Xmas tree.
To hear the NOOZers' unceasing reports on this unfortunate incident, you'd think the wrecked Xmas tree signified the end of the civilized world. They couldn't let it go because they love to feed their viewers on fear and victimhood. The head of the RNC even blamed President Biden for the vandalized tree!
"From its early reports, though, Fox News’s on-air team framed the tree burning within the context of a broader story that has been a continuous theme on the network, particularly during the Biden administration: an argument that criminality is on the rise in the United States."
Because nothing represents the "Spirit of Christmas" more than lethal weapons in the hands of children and adults.
These Trumpublican Christmas cards represent their Savior's message of "Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men."
We interrupt today's blogpost to present one of the GQP's Death & Destruction cheerleaders, Republican US Senator, Roger Wicker:
On Fox News, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) floats the idea of bombing Russian military assets -- and says he wouldn't even rule out a nuclear strike.
This is a US Senator going straight to the nuclear option to solve a problem, and TFG whined about not being able to do so while he was POTUS.
Why would any sane person EVER vote for a Trumpublican?
How is the GOP’s coronavirus recklessness compatible with being pro-life?
