Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

It's a very frustrating day here. The governor has announced that roughly 60% of nursing home workers have refused the vaccine and that the refusal rate is around half in front-line medical workers. I'd give away my favorite tools right now to get vaccinated and these morons are refusing! It's incr...

It's like a parent making a huge deal about how visiting the doctor won't hurt to a toddler that had never had any reason to suspect it might hurt. That toddler gets suspicious and freaks out. You're lucky if most of your contacts seemed to think vaccination was a good idea. Around here, polling dr...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I don't think the latter is going to happen. My guess is Texas and the other states that were in the lawsuit are going to gather more evidence (which is why the SCOTUS denied the suit initially. Lack of enough evidence) and bring it up to SCOTUS again. No, it was dismissed due to lack of standing. ...
