  1. There are probably 80,000 channels of free content out there in the streaming world.  Unless you just must have a paid subscription because you can't live without certain programming, I don't see why anyone would spend a dime subscribing to TV content.

    Not even sure what means, but sure I'm a dick and I impose scare tactics to get people that don't speak or understand English to get the vaccine. You sir are brilliant.   

    Yeah, expletives masked by asterisks and acronyms, too.  All on a speaker forum, to boot.


    If somebody doesn't want your prescription for a better life, they're idiots who need to be called out in public.  There are many like you out there.  That's what the world is becoming.

    Seems to relate to how it "feels" inside my cozy home, when I hear about what it is like right now for people who are living in Afghanistan. I am not there, so I does not seem like it is so bad. Right? What could possibly be wrong there? Probably just the media again. Right? Maybe if they all just went and got their vaccines though...

    Yeah.  I mean, we gave them all the means for democracy, and look!  Serves them right, don't it?  (sarc)

    You know all about the vaccine and the critically I'll, but YOU have ZERO first hand experience correct?   Solid. I get it now, all I have said is invalid. 

    Nope.  I know only a little.  What I DO know is that if I knew a lot about (like you claim to do), I would not turn into an ******* and deride people in an effort to persuade them.  That shit is for boot camp, and even these days, boot camp is becoming a little more compassionate.

    Yeah, you are funny right?  Whats your VALID input to this thread in comparison to mine?  You wanna Google some more? Respect those that bury your non vacinnated loved ones.  

    I respect people who do their jobs properly and ethically.  I don't respect people who brag about defying MD orders and carrying that as a badge of honor.

    It's up to me if I follow the MDs orders or decide to save someone. 

    It's up to you, the therapist, as to whether to follow the MD's orders?   I wouldn't have put that it writing if I was you.  Your medical board might not see it the same way.  


    Sounds kind of "Kevorkian" in a way, too.  What a guy!

    You have NEVER done my job. If you think you have, I laugh in response.  You don't have a clue what I do for a living with the most critically I'll.   It's up to me if I follow the MDs orders or decide to save someone.  Go read up on ECLS and tell me that you understand what I do for a living. You have no idea, trust me 

    Only you could know... with all your wisdom at 34 years of age.  Of course...

    You are a lawyer, no?  Stick to that. Don't even attempt to state they you understand human lives from a Healthcare perspective when you have ZERO perspective. Watch the news and comment on Facebook if you like, do no further, please. 

    What a turd!  You could otherwise be a nice guy.  But you really act like a turd with your arrogance.

    Stuck your foot in your mouth, twice I see.

    Again, you have NO IDEA what to uare talking about.  I'm 34 years old. I work in the unit the bypasses hearts and or lungs mechanically for a living.  We ONLY deal with the all but dead coming the door. If you brain is intact and you dotn have black toes, we are game.  I have been in the COVID units for over a year as well. Have you taken care of these patients BEDSIDE day in day, out?   I'll answer if for you, no YOU haven't. So, you have no idea, what you are talking about. Come back to me when you when you have, taken care of 500 of them. 

    Why do you think you wear some kind of badge by proving you're in the middle of something only you can appreciate?  You have the scoop, and I'm clueless?  What a great attitude!


    Anyway, I spent almost every day for a couple of years visiting my mom in her final stage of respiratory failure.  She was on and off the ETT numerous times.  I had to do YOUR job, believe it or not, when she got to go home - to try, unsuccessfully, for a few weeks to stay out of the hospital. 


    I've suctioned all the snot and crud out of her tracheostomy.  Changed diapers and all the good stuff.  So, yeah... I kind of DO know what you deal with.  Do you change diapers, too, or can I hold my experience over your head?


    I still consider you high and mighty, though, since you do it for a living.

    Given enough time (if virus, or variants persist) they will be able to show, from actuarial science, what impact not being vaccinated has on life expectancy in the near term.


    Or, who knows, the Lone Wolf nut in British Columbia is right and 60% die of vaccine in 5 years and being vaccinated with certain vaccines could cause much higher premiums.


    I'm hoping the vaccine will prove to be safe, and better yet, that it was never really all that necessary.  


    From talking to Westcoastdrums, it certainly appears to be an alarming situation from inside the medical and mortuary business.  If you're not in the middle of all the death and dying, it doesn't look all that bad.  If 6 out of 1,000 people you know happen to die this year, it doesn't feel like a "pandemic."  I realize the view is much different from the lenses of people working on the inside.

    Death is normal.  COVID death isn't. And it's mostly preventable. That's what's this thread is supposedly about right? 

    I don't know that I would describe a death from Covid as "abnormal" any more than a death from preventable diabetes.  I'm sure plenty of health professionals who treat diabetics shake their heads, just like you.  Are you becoming one of the old, crusty ones who have pent up frustration, or do you still have patient compassion and accept their ill-fate?

    I'm a respiratory therapist.  I try to stay out of these threads but in joining tonight.  ETT is endotracheal tube aka a breathing tube.  

    I see.  My mom had respiratory issues for years, so I am very familiar with that process.  It's tough.  You have a tough job if you can't stomach people dying.  That's for sure.

    I don't need to come over. Come over here. Go to downtown LA. Any zombie movie you have ever seen was based from here. I have no idea what country I live in.  I'm so glad I paid over a million dollars to live here. Oh yeah, we build tiny houses 😘

    I've visited.  California is nice.  Your COL is too high, though.  I've visited LA.  Other than smog stains on all the freeway signs, it's a drier version of Houston with a lot fewer bugs.  That's just not worth a half million bucks, IMO.  If all my family and friends were there, I'd be attached and have a different view.
