I am seeing an interesting change of behavior in my neck of the woods

and its in southeastern Virginia near the border with North Carolina, not exactly a liberal stronghold to say the least.

The past two days there was a run on the testing kits at the local Walgreens and in most stores the majority of people were masking up. That did not use to be the case as recently as a couple of weeks ago. Apparently, Omicron and maybe Trump saying you should get vaccinated/boosted had an effect.

I hesitate to attribute that to the excellent speech president Biden delivered on the topic since as I mentioned above most people around here are of the let's go Brandon persuasion.

Maybe the densest amongst us are finally starting to get it..

Another tool to map out covid infections. Yankee Candles !


Rachel is hilarious. It's amazing how stupid people are as well. You would think they would figure maybe they have covid, but no its a bad candle so they post a bad review on Amazon about the "bad" candle..

Why Elisabeth Holmes and not Trump ?

She is currently on trial for defrauding investors by misrepresenting what her company was accomplishing and selling.
She is facing up to 20 years if found guilty.

All that is understandable, however I fail to see why Trump is not in the same predicament. After all, the Trump University debacle was also fraud on a grand scale.

He has a plethora of other dubious schemes that could qualify as well.

What is Trump doing that has kept him out of prison for decades, even prior to being president ?

Why aren't Wisconsin Republicans who posed as fake electors

and forged paperwork, going as far as submitting it in jail yet ?

Is not forgery a federal crime?

It's not like it's hard to prosecute, they fucking signed the documents. They are pursuing that in Wisconsin but can it and should it be a DOJ action as well?

Oops looks like I tested positive to covid19

I was having symptoms of a cold the past two days, no fever.

I went and purchased a home test and it looks like it's positive. I guess I will get more rigorous one done at the drive in testing center to be sure and follow up with my doctor.

I'm fully vaxed and boosted and only experiencing very mild symptoms. I am located in southeastern Virginia where there has been an increase. I do mask up fully at work and when out in public. Still possibly got it. Until it's confirmed I am going to isolate and assume I am positive.
