The amount of stupid people in the world is the reason the pandemic is going on much longer than it had to and why so many people are dying unnecessarily.  The stupidity is getting worse... 

covid parties, de-vaccination, purebloods.

the promotion of fools

Sun, 2021/11/21 - 3:03pm

Proverbs 3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. 13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. 35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Pandemic Saturday

The worst side effect of COVID-19 is that it makes stupid people stupider and ordinary people stupid.  Some Proof that COVID-19 Makes People Stupid includes:

  1. Tens of millions are ignoring scientists and not wearing their masks.
  2. Millions of Americans think not wearing a mask to the grocery store is the same as Rosa Parks not sitting down on the bus.
  3. Tens of millions of Americans listened to a complete imbecile Donald J. Trump (R-Florida) instead of scientists.
  4. Millions of morons refuse to get vaccinated
  5. There are new conservative channels for dummies because Fox News was not stupid enough for some people.
  6. The Republican Party has abandoned the concept of reality.
  7. Vast numbers of people cannot figure out how to wear a mask. What’s so hard about covering your nose people? Remember, you breath through it.
  8. Conservative and Republican leaders are holding superspreader events so COVID-19 will kill their followers off faster.
  9. Congressional Republicans are not smart enough to reject the idiot who incited the lynch mob that almost killed them.
  10. Republicans think they can win elections by telling voters the election is rigged against them.
  11. Tens of millions of people are trying to bake bread at a times when the average supermarket has dozens of varieties of great bread for sale for under $5 a loaf.
  12. Many members of Congress are not smart enough to see that making cash payments and raising the minimum wage attracts votes.

So yes folks, coronavirus is making us stupider. Unfortunately, there is no vaccination against stupidity yet. On the positive side, COVID-19 could make humanity smarter by killing off millions of stupid people.

Rogers has repeated some of the most common misinformation about the vaccines and treatments that are circulating - a synthesis (or "best hits") of all the major myths, misinformation and bogus claims.  When they are repeated by someone with his level of celebrity and influence, it is very dangerous.  The stupid leading the stupid... 73,78,44,0,B
