The "Delta Variant" and unvaccinated people

Ever sailed between Trinidad and Venezuela?  Or between Grenada and Martinique? How about off the east coast of Kenya? Personally, I wouldn't want to have to shoot someone, but I'd feel better knowing that I could, if the situation arose. I do think I'd prefer a shotgun though.


It's like the windbreaker and baseball hat I always have in whatever vehicle I am driving at the moment.  Usually an umbrella too, though I haven't actually used one in many years.  Better to have it, and not need it, than need, and not have it......

You know you are arguing with someone who is convinced that GW Bush ordered the 9/11 attack just so he could go to the middle east and kill brown skinned people?
Those fucking browns were too chickenshit to try crossing the MX border with Repubs in charge! 

Where were you aiming?   ;)
Teeth. They tend to be in the head of animals like this. They make good targets too.
I don't eat them like left8 does but if it isn't a head shot, there's just a bite of two left. I always double-tap small stuff: it vaporizes them entirely leaving only memories. Pleasant memories.

Mini-14 worthless?

I enjoy shooting mine…
I was just poking fun.  It's an OK rifle.  But just OK.  Of the times I've shot them, I haven't been impressed with either its accuracy or reliability.  But for a short range ranch rifle that doesn't get the natives all skeered about an EBR, it serves its purpose well.

While we’re at it I’d like to talk about the rampant mice problem in Australia.  My reasonable solution?  Feral cats.
Now if only we had a solution to the rampant douchebag problem in Tampa.  My reasonable solution?  Oh never mind, it's likely illegal no matter how you skin that feral cat.

Vaccinated people can still get the virus, and infected but vaccinated people can still spread the virus. The vaccines are 90%+ effective from getting the virus meaning fewer people can transmit the virus. It's a numbers game.

The point of vaccination is to lower rates so that fewer people will get the virus, >>>AND<<< improve outcomes so that fewer vaccinated but infected people will die and fewer vaccinated but infected people will need to be hospitalized.  On average, dumbfucks are going to pay a higher price, as they should. But people with opposable thumbs are still at risk. Me, I gotz my shots and I'm still going to be wearing my mask indoors in public for quite awhile.
Since the nature of a virus is to evolve, there is always the chance we will see a variant far more transmissible and lethal than the Delta.

Listening to likes of Fakenews is like daring it to happen.

Yah, I have a few thousand rounds through mine, and the only time it jammed was when using non Ruger magazines.

Hell of a lot of fun to plink with. Mine is stainless like Billy’s, but I put a Butler Creek folding stock on mine, so it does look like an EBR but I still have the original wooden stock and could swap them in minutes.

The trouble is that there are young people, who would like to get the VAX but their parents won't take them, or allow neighbors to take them. Those are the people I fear for. Adults who are too stupid to get VAXed are risking their own lives, but telling your 13 y/o daughter she can't get VAXed because it's a hoax, or the VAX might be contaminated is just irresponsible.
It really is sad that a 13 yr old can't get vaccinated without parental consent but an abortion or sex change therapy is up to the 13 yr old.  What a fucked up country this is.

Not only can 13 year olds not get vaccinated but the CDC even explicitly recommends that they do get vaccinated.

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/recommendations/adolescents.html

So Biden is going against the recommendations of his own CDC and probably using the 101st Airborne to prevent children from getting vaccinated. He's taking orders from Hillary. Sad.

why do you lie?

Abortion: 2 states and the District of Columbia explicitly allow all individuals to consent to abortion services, regardless of age. 21 states require that at least one parent provide consent before a patient younger than 18 can obtain an abortion, while 10 states require prior notification of at least one parent.

Sex change drugs are also state level policies, and some states prohibit them under the age of 16.

The South Dakota House passed its version of the bill last week, which would impose a one-year jail sentence and a maximum fine of $2,000 on doctors who provide hormone replacement therapy, puberty blockers and gender confirmation surgery to children younger than 16 years old.

Chase Strangio, ACLU Deputy Director for Transgender Justice, said transgender rights advocates are geared up for a fight against HB 1057 and similar measures in ColoradoOklahomaMissouriIllinoisKentuckyWest VirginiaSouth Carolina and Florida

The mods should have a warning pinned on his sig line.
I guess my point is that I wasn't actually arguing with him. I just let his comment and my response speak for themselves.

Have to say they are great but when the boats rolling and the containers heaving as in our case we came across a refrig container in the middle of the Atlantic we pumped about 400 rounds into the thing ….didn’t make an iota of difference,  wasn’t because we were muck shots  rather polystyrene insulation floats and 400 rounds aren’t gonna do a damn thing.
