It's been a little over 13 months.
USA pop 331,700,000 covid deaths 572,155 = 1 in 580 people

We know now the odds of dying from/with covid in last 13 months was
1 in 580

Is Joe Biden's statement, that everyone has lost a friend or family member to covid
a fact or political exaggeration?
Average wedding size in USA is 150 people, funerals average 50.
Giving the benefit of doubt I used 193 for the average number of friends and family.

odds of having a friend or family member die from/with covid, 1 in 3
(193 in 580) aka 3-1 odds
I used 193 for round number, if only 150 F & F then the odds increase to 3.87 - 1
Even if you have 290 friends and family members the odds are still 50/50 that you have not lost a friend or family member to covid.

odds of 4 dear friends or family member's covid deaths 1 in 240
rare but it does happen
odds of you and spouse having the same birthday 1 in 365

Joe won an election from blowing smoke up every bodies azz, with a lot of help from the media, over exaggeration and the blame game from this mostly common cold. Not all, but a lot that died it pretty much was the final straw as it hit the older folks with already cormed conditions at a much higher percentage. Now we will pay for the next fifty years, not from the virus, but what it brought on us.

Got to remember figures don’t lie, but liars figure.
It’s all about the subsidy money.

Actually it was all about defeating Trump.
I have a procedure coming up and was told I needed a Covid test. I said okay I will get at my Drs to save driving 120 miles.
Oh no it must be done at their facility! The blood work and X-rays from my doctor are good just not the Covid test.
It’s about money not the test.

Here is a Dr. explaining the importance of vit. D, especially for anyone living north of the Tx/Ok boarder. He's located in Idaho.

The esteemed “Dr. Doom” Fauci takes something like 8-10,000 units of vitamin D daily. Wonder why he doesn’t make the importance of keeping a healthy immune system as well publicized as his mask fetish?

I remember early on, some of you same folks that are now complaining about who is making money, were complaining about how your own ability to make money was the important thing. I guess it all depends whose ox is being gored and whose fatted calf gets fed.

It was always my assertion that the nation would get thru this and the economy would come back, just as it did in every depression and any other event in our history. I based this on one thing. That the real driver of America's (and other nations) ability lies not on any specific aspect of our economy but rather on the resilience of the American people to overcome any adversity thrown at it as long as the majority of the people step up and do what is necessary. There will always be those few that will not, even tho they will benefit right along with those who did, but for the most part, that resilience will always shine thru.

I've also noticed some have certainly changed their minds about other aspects of Covid19, especially after the election results.

I also recently needed a covid test before a procedure. Which made me wonder what they would do if I came back positive? Would they cancel my procedure? I would hope not. So what's the point?

Usually, a positive test will result in cancellation or rescheduling of anything short of a life saving procedure (non-emergency)
It may vary from medical facility and state to state but CDC has guidelines.

A population risk assessment identifying the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 should be reviewed. When there is local or regional presence of SARS-CoV-2(14):

  1. All patients should be screened for symptoms prior to presenting to the hospital. Patients reporting symptoms should be referred for additional evaluation. All other patients should undergo nucleic acid amplification testing (including PCR tests) prior to undergoing non-emergent surgery.
  2. Because false-negatives may occur with testing, droplet precautions (surgical mask and eye covering) should be used by OR staff for operative cases. Before performing an aerosol- generating procedure, health care providers within the room should wear an N95 mask, eye protection, gloves and a gown.(15)
  3. If a patient tests positive for SARS-CoV-2, elective surgical procedures should be delayed until the patient is no longer infectious and has demonstrated recovery from COVID-19. A patient may be infectious until either:
    1. CDC recommended test-based strategy
      1. Resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; and,
      2. Improvement in respiratory symptoms; and,
      3. Negative results from two SARS-CoV-2 tests ≥ 24 hours apart
    2. CDC non-test-based strategy
      1. At least 72 hours since resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms; and,
      2. At least 7 days since symptoms first appeared.*
  4. Recommendations regarding the definition of sufficient recovery from the physiologic changes from SARS-CoV-2 cannot be made at this time; however, evaluation should include an assessment of the patient’s exercise capacity (metabolic equivalents or METS).
When there is little or no regional presence of SARS-CoV-2:

  1. All patients should be screened for symptoms before presenting to the hospital.
  2. Patients reporting symptoms should be referred for further evaluation.
* Please note that the CDC recently revised its recommendation on time since symptoms first appeared (above 3.b.ii.) from 7 to 10 days.

The big difference in our society today is the lack of resilience during any adversity. More folks want an hand out then those providing the handout.

This is a reminder of the way it use to be. You've probably seen this before. You'll notice nothing in this story involves safe spaces, the "victimhood game", or transsexual pronoun naming preferences.

The Boys of Iwo Jima...Each year I am hired to go to Washington, DC, with the eighth grade class from Clinton, WI, where I grew up, to videotape their trip.I greatly enjoy visiting our nation’s capital, and each year I take some special memories back with me.This fall's trip was especially memorable.On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima Memorial.This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history --that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top ofa rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan, during WW II.Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial.I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer he asked, 'Where are you guys from?'I told him that we were from Wisconsin. 'Hey, I'm a cheese head, too!Come gather around, Cheese heads, and I will tell you a story.'(It was James Bradley who just happened to be in Washington, DCto speak at the memorial the following day.He was there that night to say good night to his dad, who had passed away.He was just about to leave when he saw the buses pull up.I videotaped him as he spoke to us, and received his permission to share what he said from my videotape.It is one thing to tour the incredible monuments filled with history in Washington, DC, but it is quite another to get the kind of insight we received that night.)When all had gathered around, he reverently began to speak.(Here are his words that night.)'My name is James Bradley, and I'm from Antigo, Wisconsin.My dad is on that statue, and I just wrote a book calledFlags ofOur Fatherswhich is #5 on the New York Times Best Seller list right now.It is the story of the six boys you see behind me.'Six boys raised the flag.The first guy putting the pole in the ground is Harlon Block.Harlon was an all-state football player.He enlisted in the Marine Corps with all the senior members of his football team.They were off to play another type of game.A game called 'War.'But it didn't turn out to be a game.Harlon, at the age of 21, died with his intestines in his hands.I don't say that to gross you out, I say that because there are people who stand in front of this statue and talk about the glory of war.You guys need to know that most of the boys in Iwo Jima were 17, 18, and 19 years old -and it was so hard that the ones who did make it home never even would talk to their families about it.(He pointed to the statue) 'You see this next guy?That's Rene Gagnon fromNew Hampshire.If you took Rene's helmet off at the moment this photo was taken and looked in the webbing of that helmet, you would find a photograph...a photograph of his girlfriend.Rene put that in there for protection, because he was scared.He was 18 years old.It was just boys who won the battle of Iwo Jima.Boys.Not old men.''The next guy here, the third guy in this tableau, was Sergeant Mike Strank.Mike is my hero.He was the hero of all these guys. They called him the 'old man'. because he was so old.He was already 24.When Mike would motivate his boys in training camp, he didn't say, 'Let's go kill some Japanese' or 'Let's die for our country.'He knew he was talking to little boys.. Instead he would say, 'You do what I say, and I'll get you home to your mothers.''The last guy on this side of the statue is Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from Arizona .. Ira Hayes was one of them who lived to walk off Iwo Jima.He went into the White House with my dad.President Truman told him, 'You're a hero.'He told reporters, 'How can I feel like a hero when 250 of my buddies hit the island with me and only 27 of us walked off alive?'

'So you take your class at school, 250 of you spending a year together having fun,doing everything together.Then all 250 of you hit the beach, but only 27 of your classmates walk off alive.That was Ira Hayes.He had images of horror in his mind.Ira Hayes carried the pain home with him and eventually died dead drunk, face down, drowned in a very shallow puddle, at the age of 32 (ten years after this picture was taken).''The next guy, going around the statue, is Franklin Sousley from Hilltop, Kentucky. A fun-lovin' hillbilly boy.His best friend, who is now 70, told me, 'Yeah, you know, we took two cows up on the porch of the Hilltop General Store.Then we strung wire across the stairs so the cows couldn't get down.Then we fed them Epsom salts.Those cows crapped all night. Yes, he was a fun-lovin' hillbilly boy.Franklin died on Iwo Jima at the age of 19.When the telegram came to tell his mother that he was dead, it went to the Hilltop General Store.A barefoot boy ran that telegram up to his mother's farm.The neighbors could hear her scream all night and into the morning.Those neighbors lived a quarter of a mile away.''The next guy, as we continue to go around the statue, is my dad, John Bradley, from Antigo, Wisconsin, where I was raised.My dad lived until 1994, but he would never give interviews.When Walter Cronkite's producers or the New York Times would call, we were trained as little kids to say 'No, I'm sorry, sir, my dad's not here.He is in Canada fishing.No, there is no phone there, sir.No, we don't know when he is coming back.' My dad never fishedor even went to Canada.Usually, he was sitting there right at the table eating his Campbell's soup.But we had to tell the press that he was out fishing.He didn't want to talk to the press.''You see, like Ira Hayes, my dad didn't see himself as a hero.Everyone thinks these guys are heroes, 'cause they are in a photo and on a monument.My dad knew better.He was a medic.John Bradley from Wisconsin was a combat caregiver.On Iwo Jima he probably held over 200 boys as they died.And when boys died on Iwo Jima, they writhed and screamed, without any medication or help with the pain.''When I was a little boy, my third grade teacher told me that my dad was a hero.When I went home and told my dad that, he looked at me and said, 'I want you always to remember that the heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who did not come back.Did NOT come back.''So that's the story about six nice young boys.Three died on Iwo Jima, and three came back as national heroes.Overall, 7,000 boys died on Iwo Jima inthe worst battle in the history of the Marine Corps.My voice is giving out, so I will end here.Thank you for your time.'Suddenly, the monument wasn't just a big old piece of metal with a flag sticking out of the top.It came to life before our eyes with the heartfelt words of a son who did indeed have a father who was a hero.Maybe not a hero for the reasons most people would believe, but a hero nonetheless.We need to remember that God created this vast and glorious world for us to live in, freely, but also at great sacrifice.Let us never forget from the Revolutionary War to the current War on Terrorism and all the wars in-between that sacrifice was made for our freedom...please pray for our troops.Remember to pray praises for this great country of ours and also ... please pray for our troops still in murderous places around the world.STOP and thank God for being alive and being free due to someone else's sacrifice.God Bless You and God Bless America.REMINDER: Everyday that you can wake up free, it's going to be a great day.

I was right in 2020 and within my rights to not get vaccinated in 2021. I had the China Flu and lived to tell about. I don’t fear it, actually never did.

I hope when I’m your age GB I can still dig through old posts the way you do, of course I also hope I‘ll have more to do than that.

CB, I hate to tell you what the UrgentCare walk-in clinic charged my insurance company for a Covid test and prescription to go to the hospital 5 days later for the antibodies drip. I still haven’t seen the bill for the drip itself. So far I’m only out the $45.00 copay.

Evidently tho, you fear the vaccine, even tho it's side effects are less prevelant and much less harmful than the virus itself. Ironic.
Edit:
If you had the antibody drip you probably didn't need the vaccine at that time, as the monoclonal drip takes the place of a vaccine during treatment of an active case, but it does not provide anywhere near the long term protection as the 2 most common Covid vaccines do. About 40 people in W Va were mistakenly given the Regeneron drip/infusion treatment instead of the vaccine back in Dec 2020 and had to get the vaccine later.

They told me right away I'd have to reschedule if my test came back positive. But all good, one 'n done.

Talked to several people who have had the China Virus that got the shots after. They say the shots were hard on them, especially the second, as they already had antibodies from the virus and the second shot was overload and caused a lot of adverse effects.

I don't really care about the virus at all. But it would make my life so much more complicated right now if I were to test positive
