Problem solved.

Excellent solution. Send every vaccine not wanted by selfish anti-vaxxers to the southern borders, and use them on undocumented immigrants who want them.

That would induce more demand for undocumented migrants, get more people vaccinated, and own the racists. All around winning.

Librals will excuse Biden of everything they accused Trump of when it comes to Covid.


Now if Biden hadn't run on defeating the virus while villfying Trump for it the whole campaign, he wouldn't look like such an incomptetent ass right now. Oh and his supporters wouldn't look like such flaming hypcorites.
Except that it isn't Biden's fault that red states and specifically Trump supporters are refusing to get vaccinated while asserting that governments have no right to force them to do so. While Covid cases have risen in blue states, they are doing far better than many red states. The hot spots are Mississippi, Florida and Louisiana. Texas now has more deaths than NY ever had. At the same time, these states continue to be militant against doing anything to abate Covid. You'd think the virus was a Republican campaign contributor.

That's not called winning.

That's just what this country needs - more undocumented migrants dumped on small towns that can't afford to house them.

Now, if you're an open border Progressive then you don't give a damn about how many undocumented, illegal migrants are being let into this document destined to be future Democrat Party voters.
That's your version of winning and my version of Biden breaking federal laws which Texas and Arizona are not permitted to enforce.

Where's Trump when we need to him to stem the flow of illegals into the country?

Maybe if we could put up a big wall across the state, where the lake is, with a big sign that says "Beyond this barrier there be:

Cow tipping
Trump voting
Cousin ****ing

Then we charge admission, like Disney World. Maybe that could work if we can guarantee none of the eleven-toes claims to be Floridian. They're South Georgian.

That's a solution.
Florida is unlike most states... as you mention the north is the Deep South... the Klan wiped out a black town called Rosewood, If I remember.. South Florida is chicks in bikinis, parties and Cubanos.

But at least the children don't have to wear masks to school......:rolleyes:

DeSantis is an obvious Trump suck up, hoping to get the nod if Trump's psychosis becomes more apparent. Imagine how bad Trump would have to be for some to recognize it!!

Close the borders, mandate masks nationwide,...basically do anything but sit on his ass claiming victory.
It’s not possible to close the borders. And there is no authority or mechanism for a president to mandate masks nationwide.

Florida just reported its highest-ever number of daily COVID-19 cases and has become the new US epicenter​



Florida has broken its record for daily COVID-19 cases, reporting its highest one-day total since the coronavirus pandemic began, according to new numbers from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Federal health data showed that the state recorded a whopping 21,683 new cases on Friday. The news makes Florida the new COVID-19 epicenter in the US, according to the Associated Press.

The pace of new infections in Florida appears to be rapidly rising; the state recorded just 17,093 cases the previous day and just 13,256 one week before that.

Check out the stunning increase in cases in Florida.

Not reading more of a hysterical rant from someone who cares more about keeping people out than the virus away. :)

Vaccinate the immigrants who want it.

The Conservatives kept saying Trump can't do this or that because it is States rights this or states rights that and now they are saying Biden should do this or that and to heck with states rights
Have a nice night

Naw, this is about our incompetent president who ran on defeating Covid and his miserable failure.


Liberals just want to deflect blame to anyone they can.
The above comment is about a insidiously crazed as the people denying the terrorist insurrection treasonous attack on the U.S. Capitol...

Biden did his job and continues to do his job and has employed every kind of incentive along with governors who support promotion of vaccinations. , Biden got vaccines to every part of this country... its the imbecilic people who fight against the vaccine and fight against wearing a mask.... who is the problem; their craziness can't be blamed on Biden.
They are so hung up within right wing mentality, Trumpism and Republicanism, they will get themselves infected to devote themselves to it.

Really?

The United States, Canada and Mexico closed their shared borders to tourist and recreational travel in late March to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus. The closures have since been extended until May 21.

At the same time, the Trump administration implemented new rules that allow U.S. border officials to swiftly deport migrants who attempt to cross into the country illegally, bypassing standard legal processes.

Joe Biden led everyone to believe he'd have the virus defeated by Jul 4. Today we see he's just your typical lying politician full of bs.

You can try to pretend it's not his fault and blame everyone else but he's the current president who is sitting on his ass while the current variant is spreadin like wildfire.

People illegally crossing the border does not mean the border isn't closed.


Are you going to try and say Canada also didn't close it's border?


I'll tell ya, liberals and their convoluted bs........

You're not a San Fran liberal by chance?


Your plan sounds about as smart as the one California has for their burgeoning homeless crisis.

False dichotomy. Vaccination reduces transmission, hospitalization, and death.
Does that make it "entirely preventable"? It's amazing the lengths you people go to in trying to prove 1+1=3.

Did anyone cross the border?

I know I know. Reality has a liberal bias lol.

meanwhile, it’s not possible to close the border nor is it possible for the president to implement a nationwide mask mandate.

Who is claiming 100% efficacy?
Do you think the vaccine makes getting Covid "entirely preventable"? If so, why do you think the CDC is lying?

Does getting the vaccine make a lot less available hosts avialable, which will lead to a strong decrease of covid? If we reach herd immunity, will it die out?

Can getting the vaccine eliminate the vast numbers of people who have to go to the hosptial?

I thought old joe and obama had the handbook of pandemics?? biden should have had something in place for a variant. Everyone thought Trump should have had all the answers, now with biden they want to defend his do nothingness.
The current vaccines are very effective against the delta variant. People need to re-think what a vaccine actually does. The vaccine puts the immune system on 'stand by' for another exposure. The vaccine is not a magical force field that will prevent you from becoming infected, but if you do become infected, you will clear that infection much more quickly.

Going by Trump's playbook, it's the governors responsibility.
