    Apologies I wasn't trying to be shocking or callous, but reading it again I can see how it appears to be that. As Apt says I was more observing that it seemed to me like the Republican politicians weren't doing their own base any favours. I wasn't saying it's a good thing and I was in no way celebrating more death.

    I'm sorry that it came across that way and thank you for pointing it out to me.


    Thanks for this. I apologise for reading your comment in the worst possible light.




    This comment from reddit has been shared around a lot since it was posted. It's reddit so of course there's not really any way to verify whether it's true but I've seen it resonating with a lot of people on different social media (honestly I'm feeling a bit haunted by this post, it's appearing a bunch of places).

    When there's an emergency or some other awful thing happening, I go into robot mode and just do everything that needs to be done until it's done and just absolutely break down afterwards, which I imagine is pretty common. I feel like there's been no 'afterwards' for so many people. With an accident or even ongoing illness there's a process (even if it sucks). The sense of the world continuing around you is kind of galling when you're in or have just come out of crisis, but also almost protective because there's a sense of normality to return to. But now there's no normal after the illness and the death, and the illness and death just keep happening. All the rituals around grieving that allow you to have people around you and to process what's happening (whatever that looks like) are just gone. It sucks so much this happened on an election year as well. People just don't get a chance to catch their breath.

    Then it's not only callous, it's inaccurate, considering the virus impacts people of colour at disproportionately higher rates in the US, and Florida is one of the most diverse states in the country. Florida isn't a deep red state, Desantis won by less than 1% in 2018.

    But you know, dead old people who theoretically vote for trump. You're really going to try and convince people that wasn't being expressed as a good thing?


    I just think it's so cute how many people went off at Amph in this thread for "fearmongering" when he expressed sympathy for the looming deaths in the UK because of complete government mismanagement, but speculating on potential dead Trump supporters is just 'observation'.

    That's a shamefully shitty fucked-up thing to say.

    Oh god the rollout! Ugh, don't mention the war.
    Seriously it's that much of a shemozzle here. I'm sure if you jumped on news.com.au or any other Aussie news site you'll find more than enough stories about how the Feds have cacked it up. I got my first jab a week or so ago and am due for jab #2 on 3 Aug I think. My partner will get her first just after that.

    Yeah good luck with that whole "international travel" thing. Unless you're a politician, movie cast/crew or an athlete though. Or some rich prick who can get to self-isolate (yeah sure) in the Maldives or something. :P
    I take it you've been jabbed x 2?
