Does anyone have knowledge of what RW media is telling people?

Specifically about the booster?

Two double vaxxed family members are refusing to get the booster. Both saying the exact same thing - "They are through, they are healthy, they have strong immune systems and they are not getting it, nor will they give it to anyone else."

I know, this sounds simple. Just explain all the sound reasons. Know them all.

But this is definitely different. Reasoning is completely ineffective. "What about others"? ineffective. And everyone else has tried, even 96 year old grandma.

Makes me so suspicious. These people are typically kind and loving people even tho not Dems. Can you get hypnotized over the radio? Because they look like that.

PS Forgot other reason - they *think* they may have had it in 2020 because they were kinda sick one time.

House Committee finds trump's biggest crime against humanity

House oversight committee releases report detailing efforts of Trump administration officials to 'undermine' Covid-19 efforts in US

By Lauren Fox and Daniella Diaz, CNN

(CNN)Trump administration officials made "deliberate efforts to undermine the nation's coronavirus response for political purposes," a House oversight committee led by Democrats said in a report released Friday.

The committee, which spent months working to interview former Trump officials, said the administration worked to undermine the public health response to the coronavirus pandemic by blocking officials from speaking publicly, watering down testing guidance and attempting to interfere with other public health guidance.

Many pieces of the report were a summation of documents and interviews they've released throughout the year, but the report also outlined new examples where health guidance was adapted despite officials' concerns about the potential harmful effects of the changes.

In one instance, Dr. Jay Butler, the deputy director for infectious diseases at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told the committee he was upset and concerned about guidance he was directed to update in May 2020 for faith communities. He said he feared that some of the altered guidance about masking and other church practices could potentially put lives at risk.

Has anyone read "Do I know you"? Sarah Strohmeyer?? Best seller

At DFW bookstore. Could not put down. Been forever since I read a book that kept me up till 2:00, 3:00 in the morning for three nights.

But there were loose ends and I'm just dying to talk to somebody that read it.

Labeled a psychological thriller. The main character has hyper recognition skills. She can remember a face, shape of a face. The book starts out with her working for DHS looking for terrorists that disembark at Logan. Then gets more into a personal mystery. Set on Cape.

Anyone else visiting parents for holidays and having to watch their shows?

Jeopardy which I love

Miss Universe pageant. Could have been worse. Steve Harvey not funny and pretty creepy.

Now, the worst, The Voice. Horrible song choices. No one would buy their music today if similar. Judges obnoxiously LOVE them all, no matter how mediocre.

Worst part... Commercials !!! Ahhh.
