The number of vaccinations exceeds the number of new cases. That's good news for American citizens and bad news for the pro-lockdown governors.

Um....have you not seen cases are rising once again? You really have gone off the deep end on spouting off the typical trumpist line on lockdowns. Went very briefly to get something today at Wal-Mart....entire families without any mask at all in there threatening people who called him on his ignorance and him yelling out to a number of people he has no duty or rule to follow in wearing one. This again is all on trump, and you seem to do your best to dis any safety measures and are all thinking the vaccines are the trump "miracle" that freed the mask-wearing.


Bosco, That is not a relevant statistic.


Yeah, but it has a nice ring to it and it prompted another anti-Trump rant from Doctor Fed Up GregF. [wink]


Greg's post is accurate. People are generally not masking up as much, and case rates are going up.
