    Phoenix Suns great Chris Paul is isolating and cannot play after testing positive for Covid.



    This is especially worrying as he apparently had been fully vaccinated.

    This is an insane number:

    Nearly 900 Secret Service employees tested positive for COVID-19 between March 1, 2020 and March 9, 2021,

    The vast majority served in protection jobs, either as Special Agents or in the Uniformed Division.
    According to the Department of Homeland Security, Secret Service Special Agents “are the elite agents you see protecting the President and Vice President. They also protect the leaders of other countries when they visit the US, the President’s and Vice President’s family members, Presidential candidates who are running for election,” while agents in the Uniformed Division protect “the White House, the Vice President’s house, the Treasury Department, and foreign embassies in Washington, DC. Some Uniformed Division agents travel with the President, Vice President and foreign leaders to special events around the country.”

    Throughout the pandemic, then-President and Vice President Trump and Pence held large-scale rallies against public health guidelines, and Trump and his family made repeated protected trips to Trump-branded properties which the then-president was making millions of dollars a year from. Trump even put on a photo-op in a car with Secret Service agents while being treated for COVID, further putting agents in danger. While there have been reports of Trump’s Secret Service struggling with coronavirus cases, the number is far greater than had previously been known.

    I saw this on Twitter. I am not familiar with this artist and there were lots of postings of his wonderful work. It's always terrible to see someone succumb to this disease. So tragic in this case because he had a long career ahead of him and was much loved among his peers. He leaves behind a wife and young daughter

    Phil Valentine, Anti-Vax and Anti-Mask Radio Host, Dies at 61 of COVID Complications

    He infamously once said "I have a very low risk of A) Getting COVID and B) dying of it if I do. Why would I risk getting a heart attack or paralysis by getting the vaccine?"


    He was also a climate change denier. He produce the "documentary" An Inconsistent Truth, a rebuttal to Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth. So I fully expect his funeral to be delayed by flooding.

    Karma has been working overtime, working her magic on all these anti-vaxx nutbags. Thoughts and prayers to them? Nope and nope.

    This is not Karma.
    Covid is turning into a virus very much like the measles before there was a vaccine: Everybody who chooses not to get vaxxed will get it. So her infection is a direct result of her actions. Karma was not needed. It's also not Karma if you eat a tide pod and get sick or jump off a building and die. It's just consequences.
