Good news everyone!

More good news for the fully vaccinated: According to the CDC there have been no deaths from COVID-19 for 99.999% of all fully-vaccinated Americans. Nearly all deaths from the disease are now due to unvaccinated people getting infected and then drowning in their own bodily fluids as their lung tissue gets infected and dies.

The latest prominent figure to join the rotting lung club is Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, a vaccine critic and microchip fear-monger. As a cardinal in the Catholic Church, Burke was known as a vocal proponent and believer of many unproven and improbable things. As a member of an order where belief without proof or evidence is a job requirement, trying to convince people not to get vaccinated was just the latest salvo in his lifelong battle with reason and logic.

Burke publicly stated that COVID-19 "has been used by certain forces, inimical to families and to the freedom of states, to advance their evil agenda." Now he's face down on a hospital bed with a tube shoved down his larynx as doctors try to get enough oxygen into his necrotic lungs to keep him alive.

Burke also claimed that "There is a certain movement to insist that now everyone must be vaccinated against the Coronavirus COVID-19, and even that a kind of microchip needs to be placed under the skin of every person, so that at any moment, he or she can be controlled regarding health and regarding other matters which we can only imagine as a possible object of control by the state."

No one tried to force Burke to get a vaccine. If they had, he would probably be back at his church spouting nonsense today, since only 0.001% of fully-vaccinated people have died from the virus.

On the plus side, his imminent death may convince some of his followers to get vaccinated now that they can plainly see that the cardinal was full of shit.

We can slow the virus down and reduce the load on hospitals by masking up and keeping socially distant, but to get things back to normal more people will need to get vaccinated, and the number one reason that the vaccine-hesitant become vaccine-takers is because someone they personally know and care about died from the virus. That's literally the only way that anti-vaxxers figure out that maybe they should get vaccinated, when someone they know dies and it occurs to them "that could have been ME."

To get things back to normal the best thing you can do is get vaccinated, and then go out and mingle! Go to a night club, a restaurant, a concert, the gym. Don't wear a mask and start conversations with complete strangers! As more unvaccinated folks get sick and die, more vaccine-hesitant people will become vaccine-takers. As the number of unvaccinated people gets smaller and smaller the virus will stop spreading.

If we all do our part, we can stop this disease, and kill off a lot of annoying, stupid people at the same time. People like Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
