She advised and led by example during every phase of this pandemic to now without having a masking plan in Alabama. I was down there last November and very few were masked up at all. And most who had masks on, wore them as chin straps….

And the brother that said, "I got 99 problems but a vax ain't one“ passed away…

LOS ANGELES - A man who mocked COVID-19 vaccinations died this week at a Los Angeles-area hospital after contracting the virus.


Stephen Harmon was 34.

Harmon died on Wednesday at Corona Regional Medical Center, about an hour's drive east of Los Angeles.

Stephen Harmon posted photos of himself in his hospital bed, wrote that he had pneumonia and critically low oxygen levels and was going to be intubated. In a tweet Wednesday, Harmon wrote: "Don’t know when I’ll wake up, please pray."

Three days before his death, Harmon tweeted: "If you don’t have faith that God can heal me over your stupid ventilator then keep the Hell out of my ICU room, there’s no room in here for fear or lack of faith!"

Before his hospitalization, Harmon had made fun of vaccination efforts on social media.

"I got 99 problems but a vax ain't one," he said in a tweet last month.

On July 8, he posted: "Biden’s door to door vaccine ‘surveyors’ really should be called JaCovid Witnesses. #keepmovingdork."

Harmon's death was "unbelievably demoralizing," Dr. Oren Friedman, who treats COVID-10 patients at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, told KCBS-TV. He said the number of COVID-19 admissions had increased tenfold.

"Virtually every single person that is getting sick enough to be admitted to the hospital has not been vaccinated," Friedman said.

California has seen escalating numbers of COVID-19 infections, led by the highly transmissible delta variant that has proliferated since the state fully reopened the economy last month. The vast majority of new cases are among unvaccinated people, and health officials have pleaded for people to get the shots.

On Friday, the state Department of Public Health reported nearly 8,000 new cases a day earlier and the testing positivity rate over seven days had jumped to more than 5% after dipping below 1% only a few weeks ago.

Los Angeles County, which has about a fourth of the state's population, reported more than 3,000 new cases for the first time since February. There were 655 people with COVID-19 in hospitals, a jump of more than 200 people in a week, according to county figures.

Harmon attended Hillsong Church in Los Angeles.

Founder Brian Houston called him "one of the most generous people I know."

"As a church, our focus is on the spiritual well-being of the people in each of our local communities. On any medical issue, we strongly encourage those in our church to follow the guidance of their doctors," Houston said in a statement. "While many of our staff, leadership and congregation have already received the COVID-19 vaccine, we recognize this is a personal decision for each individual to make with the counsel of medical professionals."

Sports Forum / Did UT & OU simply copy FAMU & BCU’s playbook?

Just wondering aloud…..the FAMU/BCU move strengthened the SWAC just as the UT/OU move is to strengthen the SEC…

If stark, clear reality is conflated with blaming the sick, then slap me silly.

You act like these folks weren't influenced and enabled every step of the way by policymakers, the mainstream media, and government agencies not to get vaccinated.

The pandemic in America was essentially declared no longer a threat, if not over, once the CDC issued its mask guidance for vaccinated people.

Now that s**t done hit the fan, we're blaming unvaccinated folks instead of the authorities.   



We disagree wholeheartedly on the assertion that the CDC declared the pandemic as being over. Please explain yourself on how you came to that conclusion.

I took it as a statement that if you were fully vaccinated, you no longer were required to wear a mask.  The unvaccinated over 2-3 years of age should be masked in public.

When the CDC issued its mask guidance in May, states, and cities, and major retailers almost immediately dropped mask mandates and COVID restrictions.

Once that happened, there was no reason for anyone to mask or get vaccinated, especially since Fauci and Walensky admitted folks were going to be on the "honor system" moving forward.

Why get vaccinated if there are no restrictions?

So, when & where, specifically did the CDC declare the pandemic as over, per your assertion?

Kay Ivey tells Alabamians to get vaccinated: ‘I can’t make you take care of yourself’


A fiery Gov. Kay Ivey made her most forceful statements yet today encouraging Alabamians to get the COVID-19 vaccine, saying “the unvaccinated folks are letting us down” in the fight to control the pandemic.

She also signaled she would not mandate students to wear masks when classes resume in Alabama’s public schools, saying that decision should be left up to school districts.

“Let’s be crystal clear about this issue,” Ivey said.


“Media, I want you to start reporting the facts. The few cases of COVID are because of unvaccinated folks. Almost 100% of the new hospitalizations are unvaccinated folks. And the deaths certainly are occurring with unvaccinated folks. These folks are choosing a horrible lifestyle of self-inflicted pain. We’ve got to get folks to take the shot.”

Ivey was in Birmingham this afternoon speaking at the opening of tech company Landing’s new headquarters, responding to questions from the assembled media.


Calling the vaccines “the greatest weapon we have to fight COVID,” Ivey admitted some frustration in response to questions on what she can do to encourage more Alabamians to get vaccinated. Alabama is the only state in the nation with fewer than 40% of eligible residents vaccinated against COVID-19. Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows just 39.6% of people 12 and older in Alabama are fully vaccinated.

In response to the question of what will take it get more people to take the vaccine, Ivey said, “I don’t know. You tell me.”

“Folks are supposed to have common sense,” she said. “It’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down....I’ve done all I know how to do. I can encourage you to do something, but I can’t make you take care of yourself.”


Unvaccinated people represent an overwhelming percentage of Alabama’s COVID deaths since April, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health. Alabama has recorded more than 500 COVID deaths since April 1. Of those, only 20 people were fully vaccinated, meaning slightly over 96% were unvaccinated.

In response to a question about mandating masks among school children, Ivey appeared to signal that would be a half-measure.

“I want folks to get vaccinated,” she said.

“That’s the cure. That prevents everything. Why do we want to mess around with just temporary stuff? We don’t need to just encourage people to go halfway with curing this disease. Let’s get it done. We know what it takes to get it done. Get a shot in your arm. I’ve done it. It’s safe. The data proves it. It doesn’t cost anything. It saves lives.”

Ivey received both shots of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in December. She called it “just the thing to do,” saying those who have received it should encourage others to receive the vaccine.

People must “take care of themselves and us as well. We can’t do that for them. All we can do is everybody take the shot for themselves, so encourage others to do likewise,” Ivey said.

If stark, clear reality is conflated with blaming the sick, then slap me silly. It’s a real fact the vast majority of new cases are those who share one trait in common. Riddle me that, Batman. What is that single, identifiable trait Devin?

87 Alum, what this comedian does is take existing videos and inserts his own videos reacting to whats going on to make it appear that the 2 are actually interacting with each other.
