But the mask mandate was lifted! We reopend! It's even in the Mercury! It was over! Even Brown said so!
Oh...maybe we were just a touch premature...?
"Be smart, get vaccinated, it'll save your life and my career. And if you disagree with me, THEN I HOPE YOU CATCH COVID AND SUFFER THEN DIE"
Gotta love the faux compassion of Portlanders whose anger always seems to manifest as death wishes.
Nevermind the fact that they are doing away with the term "breakthrough case" entirely now that Delta has proven it has little trouble infecting vaccinated folks (even if they remain asymptomatic).
Blame the unmasked vaxxed folks who are filling up the beer gardens and sidewalk tables. The supposedly 'sophisticated' superspreaders. It's Saturday, go out tonight. I live in the Pearl, but go anywhere. You'll see everyone out and about spreading the virus. Even kids are catching Delta. Even vaccinated folks are going to the hospital. Not in droves like unvaxxed, but the fact of the matter is until we get this under control, any 'sophisticated' person who is doing a yoga class unmasked is no better than an unvaxxed hillbilly. Congrats, you're both superspreaders.
@3 THE ENTIRE COUNTRY IS FED UP. Unvaccinated people are why there are breakthrough cases. Unvaccinated people are why the Delta variant exists in this country - because if everyone had gotten vaccinated there would be no Delta variant here. Kids are getting COVID and Delta BECAUSE UNVACCINATED PEOPLE ARE SPREADING THE DISEASE. The rage is against the unvaccinated. The unvaccinated are responsible for all of the sick children and all of the full hospitals and all of the re-instated mask mandates, and all of the continued bullshit. All of it. So spare the rest of us your bullshit. The fact of the matter is we will NOT get this under control, not while 30% of the population refuses to get vaccinated. We could have gotten it under control if we had a functional president with a brain in December 2019, with a pandemic protocol in place, NATIONAL, FEDERAL MANDATES, and 100% of the eligible population getting vaccinated when the vaccines came out.
There is no getting it under control now. And pretending that anyone other than the unvaxxed assholes who also refuse to wear masks are responsible is total and complete bullshit.
It's OK to blame the unvaccinated — they are robbing the rest of us of our freedoms
It's important to remember that this is still a pandemic of the unvaccinated... by refusing to do the right thing, the unvaccinated are stripping freedom and choice from every other American who got vaccinated.
The thoughtless privilege of America's vaccine refusers
Talk about privilege. Talk about entitlement. The fact that these anti-vaccination dipshits even have the leisure time to research their nonsense on Facebook or peddle their foolishness online or in school board meetings is a testament in itself to that privilege. How nice that they have the luxury of making a political statement about their non-vaccinated status!
Most Americans have absolutely no clue how unbelievably fortunate they are to have these vaccines available. The fact that so many are willing to blithely and casually risk the lives and health of others, to say nothing of their own lives, is a sorry testament to American hubris, ignorance and entitlement.
If You Skip the Vaccine, It Is My ‘Damn Business’
Vaccination is different. In the context of a deadly and often debilitating contagion, in which the unchecked spread of infection has consequences for the entire society, vaccination is not a personal decision. And inasmuch as the United States has struggled to achieve herd immunity against Covid-19 through vaccination, it is because we refuse to treat the pandemic for what it is: a social problem to solve through collective action.

Since people are now throwing around the label "Philistine", I'm wondering how many people realize that the Philistines were a 12th century BC people whom the early Hebrews persecuted and then destroyed outright in an ancient holocaust?
It's always good to know where labels originate. It helps add perspective to things and even gives an interesting perspective on history.

Hey kristofarian, are you a poet? That don’t know it?
@10 And yet modern day usage of philistine has nothing to do with that (but of course you know that already)
philistine: a person who is hostile or indifferent to society (typically referring to culture and the arts, those who have no understanding of them), but also can refer to anyone such as the modern day death cult who scream about anything they don't like and refuse to do anything for the greater good because they are too fucking stupid and hate filled and find it easier to blame mythical "elites" for destroying society instead of looking in the mirror. see the gop; qanon, fox news watchers, anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, white supremacists, misogynists, gun nuts, etc. etc. etc.
the philistines in this country have chosen death about all else and call it freedom.

Christina, the use of Philistine has everything to do with that. 14000 years after the Hebrews wiped them out, we still use it to describe people we don't like. Where do you think the definition of that word comes from? It's a racial slur that's lasted 14 millennia.
I bet people don't believe that 'cretin' is similar. People from Crete were not favored at one time. Hence, assholes are philistines and cretins.
@20 yes and anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers call others nazis and wear stars of david. people are fucking delusional and use words in ways that have no relevance to today. philistine has a very distinct and different meaning (you can deny it all you want, the definition exists and the usage applies). however, nazis are nazis and they have nothing to do with people demanding people get vaccinated during a worldwide pandemic. and those being asked to be vaccinated and wear masks are not comparable to jews who were rounded up by the nazis, robbed of all they owned (even the fillings in their teeth), put in concentration camps, abused, tortured, murdered en masse, and dumped in mass graves.
this situation is not a matter of semantics. asshole motherfuckers who refuse to get vaccinated are spreading disease and killing people.
the only history lesson relevant here is that people who refuse to do what is necessary to stop the spread of disease because they are fucking stupid cause an immeasurable amount of unnecessary suffering and death.

People always think English degrees are boring. But look at how excited people are getting over the etymology of 2 common words.
We're still using the same racial slurs millennia after the people originally tagged with them disappeared. What does that say about humans and what does that say about language? What commonly used racial slurs from today will people still be using in 16021?
