Funny group of states:

"Illinois, Washington, California, Georgia, Hawaii, and Nevada are getting about half the doses they expected, according to the AP and NBC News."

The excuse of holding back 2.9 millon doses for the booster shot doesn't hold water. If they're producing this in real-time, they should be shipping as quickly as they produce and producing more vaccine to be shipped as boosters when the time comes.

This is either being done to screw with states that didn't kiss Trump's ring, or perhaps companies like Amazon will be able to "reserve" shipments to vaccinate their employees and jump the line.

If this is being done out of malice, there need to be criminal charges on the state level ... give Trump a well-deserved vacation in lovely Pelican Bay.

Its just sheer incompetence - there are no leaders in the Trump administration. No one qualified or with an ounce of intelligence to do anything other than kiss his ass. Now we have the hacking issue and Trump says or does nothing! Maybe the hacking will just disappear just like Covid has :) Republicans voted in another incompetent. Republicans are the least patriotic people I have ever met - Russian lovers and tread on the constitution.

The odd part is the Republicans I know were extreme Russian haters for decades...decades! Then when their papa bear embraced the Russian bear they fell silent on the topic.

If I had not lived through the last four years, I never would have believed it. The pack mentality I guess.

Eurasia. Eastasia. We were always at war with Eastasia.

1984 wasn't an allegory about Communism. It was an allegory about authoritarianism and denial of reality by authoritarian personality cults. 2 + 2 equals 5.

it does make a lot of sense from their prospective.

1. Red states are patriots, blue states are not.
2. Red states have actual Americans, blue states have much more people that are not "real" Americans.
3. Red states have more true Christians (evangelicals), blue states have godless heathens.
4. Red state votes are weighted more per voter compared to blue states.

That is their world view, therefore why would the blue states even think they'll be getting equal amount of vaccines???

3. Shouldn't G-d's chosen not need the vaccine to save them from the great plague?

Why do Red states need the vaccine. Supposedly Covid is just like the flu and herd immunity is ok.

So maybe we'll get the death panels after all.

But I would like the see some financial analysis to see how much the US will save in SSA and Medicare by killing off people aged 65+ a few years earlier than expected. Especially if they people don't get to go to a hospital if they are over 75 and are expected to die at home.

You're forgetting about GWB and his pal Pooty-Poot, "I looked into his eyes and saw his soul," etc.
