I'll be very interested to see where I work at Costco how many people suck it up and get the vaccine, or just quit because they'd rather die than do something a democrat even suggested. As I've said in other posts, going by social media I'd say well over 70 percent of my co-workers I'd label as extreme far right. I'd honestly be surprised if more than 10 percent of the store is vaccinated. A lot of employees on social media seemed very irate and volatile over the president's mandate yesterday. One thing I didn't realize till a manager brought it up to me, with the medical mandate for the vaccine that must be met by next month, if you work in an area like the pharmacy, optical or hearing aide dept, you can't work there without being vaccinated. Costco tends to be pretty generous and understanding unlike most other retailers where if someone didn't want to get the shot, they'd just move them into another dept........and with the lack of employees we have and no one wanting to work, its not like we don't have a variety of places to put them. Other stores probably would not give them that option and tell them "good bye, heres the door!"

Another thing I'm noticing with people here, it now seems to be a taboo to say that someone is sick with covid. I'm noticing theres more and more people getting it that were the loudest about not taking any steps to get it or doing what a democrat says to do. I saw ever people sharing this post on facebook this week about an employee from that Smokey G BBQ place being sick with "the bug" as they called it. Its not the first time I've seen someone refer to covid as something else this last month as if its something forbidding to say now.

Merck, the pharmaceutical company that MANUFACTURES ivermectin, said they have found “no scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect” against covid, “no meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy” in people with covid, and “a concerning lack of safety data in the majority of studies.”

This is from the Drug Company manufacturer of ivermectin. The company that has every incentive to promote their drug to make more money says it has no beneficial use for treating Covid and could actually cause death.

Meanwhile, Evergreen and Mercy Medical doctors continue to proscribe ivermectin, a horse de-worming drug, to their patients rather than encourage vaccinations.

Wouldn’t reasonable folks expect licensed Medical Doctors (and other health professionals) have their licenses revoked and the facilities they practice in sanctioned for such reckless prescribing? The manufacturer explicitly stated that Ivermectin not be used for Covid-19 or did I misunderstand?

Mike

Ever wonder why so many deaths are at Mercy Medical Center Hospital where two of the Dr. Powells are Directors and another is Chief of staff.

Mike

Below is the list of 57 Douglas County residents who have died since August 20 (20 days ago), when the Douglas County Public Health Network began identifying the vaccination status of residents who died of Covid. DPHN identified them in one of three categories; fully vaccinated, vaccinated (with one shot), or not vaccinated. I’ve also listed their sex, age, date tested positive, date died, location where they died and if they were fully vaccinated.

80.4% of Douglas County residents who died were NOT fully vaccinated. They averaged 66.0 years old, not including the infant.

19.6% of Douglas County residents who died WERE fully vaccinated. They averaged 73.7 years old.

At least 40 of the 57 deaths (70.1%) occurred at Mercy Medical Center. 15.8% died in their residence. 8.9% died in hospitals other than Mercy and 5.2% don’t have a listed location of death.

Mike

It sure would be interesting to know how many of the 57 people who died over the past 20 days were at the Douglas County Super Spreader Fair. I'm certain we will never get that information because it would further highlight how our Douglas County Commissioners did nothing new to stop those 57+ preventable deaths.

Mike

The Oregon Health Authority published their Long-Term Care Facility report (below link) last Tuesday.

Seems that all those places will likely be covered by vaccine mandates. Good.

Mike

They need to be mandated since NONE of those places meet Oregon's minimum requirement of 80% vaccinated staff and residents.

Mike: thank you for your diligence and ongoing research and reporting of DATA. Good to know there are folks in DC that know the difference between best discernible information and falsehoods propagated by the FB minions. As far as the skills of our elected officials, it is what it is, sorrowfully.
