What is wrong with you?

Posted By Russ Carroll

I never got a nastygram from Richard. He sent me a PM yesterday so that I knew he was ok:

Covid-19 data and graphs

Posted By Russ Carroll

I got my vaccine yesterday. Single-dose J&J varietal. Very little soreness. Felt a little cranky that evening, but nothing major at all. 100% fine this morning. Nurse said not a single person was hospitalized with COVID during trials. 9000 patients in all I believe.

I think Scripps got an unexpected shipment of J&J doses, and I got an email Friday night for slots available on Saturday. The slots filled up quickly. Good fortune and answered prayers, whichever you choose.

"About 47% of people who supported Trump in the 2020 election said they would not get a Covid-19 vaccine if it became available to them, a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found."


See, this is when even I, an Evangelical, have a bit of Darwinism in me. (Sadly) Let nature take care of the problem...

Hey JB, do you remember when I whipped out a Big Lebowski quote to try and chide Richard? It's becoming a thing smile

Sidney Powell's Defense...

Posted By Russ Carroll

And this is a lawyer? Why does she still have a law license. I can't believe we don't have Richard to explain to us what a great defense she is putting up and how it makes total sense, while at the same time defending the rioters.

GOP Rep "Louie" Gohmert On Changing the Earth/Moon Orbits

Speaking of Gohmert, what's the latest on Richard's whereabouts? Herbs bandwidth charges must have plummeted.

Disappointed? DISAPPOINTED??

It's taken this long to clear Herb's bandwidth overages so he could let Richard back in and you think we are disappointed???

None of us here are particularly woke, by the way.  We can still laugh at Animal House or Tropic Thunder.  Can you imagine the reaction of the Atlantic scold who interviewed the Bee's editor if she were forced to watch Tropic Thunder?  (See the link in Richard's second or third post)  That link, was terribly funny in my opinion; at the Atlantic's expense...

The fact that Dave Chappelle would become the target of cancel-culture says it all. If you can't leave Dave alone, you are totally lost.

Geraldo says he's "Eating Humble Pie" now due to his infection with Covid

Here is a chart from a presentation from JPM this morning to wealth management clients. They would sell NASA short after the Challenger explosion if they could to make money, so they have no political horse in the race. They also mentioned a study by Kaiser that showed that hundreds of thousands of people would not have died had they been vaccinated.
