Open Thread | Update with COVID

I didn’t like this headline, because it makes us seem as if we don’t know the cause. We know the cause. The cause of 90% of these deaths is…those who are UNVACCINATED.

I took my mega-booster shot last week. I still mask up. I’m calling around making sure that my family and friends get that mega-booster shot. That’s what I can do in my corner of the world.

This Administration is sending me free COVID tests to my home, and making the mega-booster available on practically every other corner in this country. This Administration made that available for us. What they can’t do, is force those who want to remain unvaccinated to get the shot.

I know that I am alive because of 46 and his Administration. I might die of something else, but, the chances of me dying from COVID has gone down tremendously due to available vaccines. We need to stop pretending that these folks have any actual reason to not be vaccinated. They need to stop being coddled.

Like I wrote up above…

    September 21, 2022 | WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the House of Representatives passed S. 1098, the Joint Consolidation Loan Separation Act 232-193 with bipartisan support, granting student loan borrowers the chance to split their Joint Consolidation Loans (also known as Spousal Consolidation Loans) into two separate federal Direct Loans.

    Borrowers with Spousal Consolidation Loans, especially those held by Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program lenders, have been ineligible for many of the historic actions the Biden Administration has taken to protect student loan borrowers. Separating these loans will finally allow these borrowers to access critical student loan relief programs.

    In June 2022, the Senate passed the same bill with bipartisan support. Now that the bill has passed both chambers, it will be sent to President Biden for signing.

    DeSantis won’t say why Florida paid his hand-picked vendor Vertol Systems Company $950,000 to charter plane from Texas to Teterboro yesterday with only crew on board.

    Good POTUS speech at the UN, especially on Ukraine. Explains why resistance to Russian aggression is about more than Ukraine. A world in which big powers can violently swallow their sovereign neighbors is the law of the jungle. Those are the stakes in Ukraine.

    Republicans only care about “the border” right before an election.

    Remember: They just recently controlled the White House, Senate, and House for 2 years and did nothing to overhaul the immigration system.

    Op-Ed: Black women, despite being one of the most politically active groups in the country, hold less than 5% of state legislative seats nationwide, meaning their voices are largely excluded from policy discussions.

    House Republicans are officially whipping against the Presidential Election Reform Act — the new legislation from Reps. Lofgren and Cheney — which would essentially prevent future coups.

    So… for one this means Putin’s war efforts are *very* unpopular, despite the propaganda to the contrary.

    He is desperate not to lose potential soldiers as his army is being liquidated and the issue of defending the country itself begins to become a real concern.

    Yes, patently absurd.

    Let me get this straight. Biden is taking heat from Republicans for saying a pandemic that they denied existed is now over? Is that correct ?

    Annnd another one. Marist’s poll in GA this morning has a likely voter sample that is 49% women. Going back to 2016, women have not accounted for less than 55% of votes cast in GA. We’re to believe that, post-Dobbs, women turn out at an all-time record low there?

    “Russian airlines have stopped selling tickets to Russian men aged 18 to 65. All flights from Russia to available foreign destinations were sold out Wednesday after Putin declared a ‘partial’ mobilization of the country’s 25 million reservists.”

    You can miss me with this bullshyt. 



    His vote is his vote. And, it’s on the record. 

    The MSM gets on my nerves, continuing to try to give Republicans the benefit of the doubt when they absolutely deserve NOTHING. 

    NONE of them stood up to Dolt45. They ALL enabled him during his term.

    The public narrative suggests McConnell was never going to convict Trump. But our reporting indicates he came close — and made a last minute decision.

    His staff even fleshed out two sets of arguments for his final floor speech: one supporting acquittal; the other, conviction.

    As per the indispensable @MarkHertling: “The issue is the Russian army is poorly led & poorly trained. That starts in basic training, and doesn’t get better during the RU soldier’s time in uniform.”
