as we enter 2022, i think it’s important to remember it’s called Covid-19 because it was discovered in 2019.

it’s absolutely insane that the government is basically saying fuck you to the unvaccinated (which, you know, includes young children), given more deaths were recorded due to the pandemic this year than in 2020. just because the omicron variant is less deadly than delta doesn’t mean another couldn’t become a threat at any given time—perhaps the state would respond differently then, but there’s no reason to imagine it would at this point.

what’s wild to me is the administration has basically set up the republicans to win in 2022 & 2024. if trump runs again—which he likely will—he won’t even have to lie. he’ll be able to say his pandemic response was more successful, kept the economy going while minimizing deaths, and that biden followed through on none of his campaign promises except for the one to millionaires that ‘nothing will fundamentally change.’

meanwhile, developed nations across europe are entering lockdowns to curb the spread of omicron.

what hell.
