    President Joe Biden is touting a dramatically improved summer as U.S. vaccination rates increase – as he joined the fray with his own inducement to get people vaccinated with the prize of a trip to the White House.
    And the son of a car salesman talked up 'free beer' as another incentive that just might persuade lingering Americans to take part in a nationwide vaccination campaign to stamp out the virus.
    Citing new statistics showing 63 per cent of U.S. adults were now vaccinated, Biden said the nation was heading into summer in circumstances he called 'dramatically different' from last summer.

    President Joe Biden touted a free beer promotion, ticket giveaways, and a trip to the White House on July 4th as he seeks to entice Americans to get vaccinated to meet his goal of 70 percent of adults having at least one shot by July 4th

    'A summer of freedom. A summer of joy. Summer of get-togethers and celebrations. An All American summer that this country deserves after a long, long dark winter that we've all endured.'

    Update:

    Joe Biden uses Indian variant’s ‘rapid spread’ in UK as warning to Americans in vaccine plea

    Joe Biden has used the UK as a bad example of how the Indian Covid variant can ‘spread rapidly’ through the population as he begs un-vaccinated Americans to get their jabs.

    The president issued the stark warning to the US – where only 42% of the population have been fully vaccinated – on Tuesday as he tries to tackle a severe slump in vaccine take-up.

    You sure about that?

    In any case, Vax (aka Trumpcine) and beer, guns are sort of MAGA territory that Biden wing appears to be encroaching upon (now that MAGA is unable to tweet and MAGA ground enforcers 'Proud Boys' have been flipped apparently).

    With help of private sector, they should be able to get at least free beer.


    America’s largest beer company will buy the country a round if it hits Biden’s July 4 vaccination goal

    June 2, 2021 at 6:31 p.m. EDT
    It’s a campaign that feels like a booze-fueled party waiting at the finish line of a marathon: If the United States reaches President Biden’s vaccination goal by the Fourth of July, Anheuser-Busch will buy adults a round of beer.
    Just over a month remains until July 4, the date Biden set to meet a goal of at least 70 percent of adults receiving at least one coronavirus vaccine shot. To help reach that point, the beverage company announced what it’s calling its biggest beer giveaway ever, one that comes in a “pivotal moment where people are excited to be together again,” the company’s chief marketing officer, Marcel Marcondes, said in a statement.

    The GOP is a little better. Maybe it helps a bit to vote for them. I still do but didn't for Trump. It hardly matters anymore, the country is $#@!ed. It's more important to just look out for yourself now.

    For me, it depends. CBD oil has shown numerous benefits. Studies are beginning to show that smoking marijuana has the same cancer risks as tobacco, and it decreases blood flow to the hippocampus, which helps form memory.

    But, yeah, we need to stop bribing people to take a vaccine. No one bribes anti-vax parents with beer, weed, and a lottery ticket to give their kids the measles vaccine...

    Studies used to show that, because they were bad studies. Then some longterm studies came out about 20-30 years ago showing that it actually had the opposite affect.. which makes sense because THC and CBD help reduce tumor growth. Also, an average smoker might smoke 20 cigarettes a day, whereas an average cannabis smoker might smoke the equivalent of a half a cigarette - 2 cigarettes worth of cannabis.

    A lot of people vape cannabis concentrates these days, which doesn't create the same carcinogenic materials that smoking can. Also, the higher quality cannabis that has higher THC percentages leads people to smoke less plant material.

    I don't even know if organic tobacco causes cancer, because since the 1930s they have apparently been using a phosphorus fertilizer that contains radioactive elements. Then eventually they ended up filling them with hundreds of chemicals. Now even the paper has to have chemicals in it. So there is really no good way to test that.

    Biden Says India Variant is ‘Particularly Dangerous’ for Certain Groups


    By Anna Breuer on 19 June 2021
    Carnegie Hall in New York City

    President Joseph Biden said that the India, or Delta, variant of the coronavirus is of greater concern than previous mutations of the virus. “The data is clear: If you are unvaccinated, you’re at risk of getting seriously ill or dying or spreading it,” Biden said during a news conference at the White House. He said the variant “will leave unvaccinated people even more vulnerable than they were a month ago.”

    The India, or Delta, variant of the coronavirus is quickly becoming dominant in the United States, officials there said. “It’s more transmissible than the Alpha variant, or the UK variant, that we have here,” said Dr. Rochelle Wllensky told ABC News in an interview on Good Morning America Friday.

    As of Saturday morning, the world has recorded over 178.7 million Covid-19 cases and has seen 3.87 million deaths, according to Worldometer, a service that tracks such information. In addition, over 163.3 million people worldwide have recovered from the virus.

    In the United States, the death toll, which recently crossed the 600,000 mark, is now 616,924. Since the start of the pandemic the country has recorded over 34.4 million individual cases, a higher figure than any other country and second only to India which has seen 29.9 million cases.

    Officials in the United Kingdom are reporting that 99% of new coronavirus cases are the India, or Delta, variant. Over 33,000 were identified over the past week, a 79% increase over the prior week. “Cases are rising rapidly across the country and the Delta variant is now dominant,” said Jenny Harries, the UK Health Security Agency’s CEO.

    In other independence day news, vax target has been missed:


    Biden warns of danger of Delta variant as US set to miss vaccination target

    President says America has Covid-19 ‘on the run’ but new cases jumped 10% amid patchy take-up of vaccines across country

    Sarah Betancourt in Boston and Joan E Greve in Washington
    Sat 3 Jul 2021

    Joe Biden has warned that although America has Covid-19 “on the run” the latest variant is of particular concern among those who remain unvaccinated – as the president’s goal of 70% of US adults receiving at least one shot of vaccine by the Fourth of July holiday was set to fall short.

    New US cases of coronavirus jumped by 10% in the past week as the highly contagious Delta variant spreads, especially where vaccination rates are low.

    Biden warns 'lives will be lost' if more people aren't vaccinated against Covid – video
    “I am concerned that people who have not gotten vaccinated have the capacity to catch the variant and spread the variant to other people who haven’t been vaccinated,” Biden said on Friday.

    Nearly 25% of new US infections have been linked to the “hyper-transmissable” Delta variant, first identified in India, up from 6% in June.
    As of 1 July, 66.8% of US adults have received at least one dose of vaccine. A total of 54.6% of all Americans have received one or more shot.

    “We’re very, very close to that [government] goal,” said Iwan Barankay, a professor of business economics and public policy at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

    But he added: “We need to aim for higher than 70% to get us to herd immunity. We have to think clearly about who [has] not gotten vaccinated yet and understand why … we have to think about the people who are just vehemently opposed, based on their pure convictions or how they understand the evidence and science.”
    Barankay said the federal funding and supply of vaccinations was already there for communities that have low vaccination rates, but that state and local governments need to carry the torch the final stretch to persuade people, with decentralized messaging, to get the shot.

    “I’m actually quite impressed how many people got vaccinated, my benchmark was how many people would get a flu shot in a bad flu year,” he said, adding that is usually about 55% of people.
    The US has recorded 33.7m coronavirus cases and 605,000 deaths, the highest totals in the world, according to the Johns Hopkins coronavirus resource center.
    Levels of inoculation vary steeply across the US. In mid-June Vermont became the first state where 80% of eligible people have had at least one shot, and up to 66% are fully vaccinated, making it the top state in the Becker Hospital Review’s vaccine tracker, which relies on federal data.
    Mississippi ranks last in the US for getting shots in arms, according to the tracker, with just under 30% of people fully vaccinated.

    Biden could use door-to-door vax effort to seize guns and bibles: Rep. Cawthorn

    July 10, 2021

    "They could then go door-to-door and take your guns, they could go door-to-door and take your Bibles," Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) said. REUTERS

    Freshman GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn said President Biden’s door-to-door vaccine initiative wouldn’t just stop there and could eventually target guns and even Bibles.

    “Now, they’re starting to talk about going door-to-door to be able to take vaccines to the people,” Cawthorn told Right Side Broadcasting during a gathering of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas.
