We have all been here before

I realize I'm likely to make an all over the place meandering post here.
92 percent of LGBTQ folks are vaccinated. We've been through a devastating pandemic of our own before.
Sometimes I regret ever having left the fay ghetto (castro) and this certainly qualifies as one of the times I wish I'd seldom ever had to deal with so many of these stupid, Trumper, anti-masker, anti-science gun toting fucking imbeciles.

I suppose part of abandoning the city was having lost 5 friends, my whole "crew", I'm the sole survivor that never recovered from that loss.
Now it's making the money has become paramount to save up for some sort of decent retirement, but because I work in healthcare (imaging) that got complicated via having caught COVID very early on in the pandemic.
I've taken some time off to try relative convalescence, to lower my blood pressure that blew way out of control, and part of that was dealing with idiotic Trumpers, patients and some staff, at work. I've had long hauler symptoms ever since I had the bug, and this worked to get me much healed, back to my baseline before spending one insanely sick weekend.
It's also a tremendous relief that the stupid anti-vaxxers have lost their idiotic stance.
Looks like my next travel contract will be signed this week, and the timing couldn't be better.
I was ready to just bamboozle the pharmacy 10/2 or thereafter to get a booster on board before heading back to where I'll be wearing the space suits in the ICU's again. Now the CDC director gave the panel the reality smackdown about that, thank you Dr. Rochelle Walensky, we need all the immune ammunition we can get aboard.
I'm due for my Pfizer booster 10/2, 16 days prior to resuming work. That couldn't have worked out better.

This pandemic has made a relatively isolated social situation far worse, I still talk to my dog loquaciously and attempt to equivocate some social interaction through internet conversations.
Here's my real hero. The person who has kept my head above suicidal waters throughout this idiotic time/space continuum we find ourselves in. https://photos.google.com/u/1/photo/AF1QipMHLEx9YhMyI6eNuPO83N8cog-H-OmNAzPFUPvz

Her sources unlisted but likely fairly accurate. We need this statistic solidified to shaddup

the anti-vaxxers with:

clown after clown after clown

Sorry if this is a bit old. I just caught it today, I'm still holding my guts. What an expert edit, if you haven't caught this, it's worth the half hour. Don't drink anything you don't want up your nose.

the reproductive perogative

Responsible for second class citizenship status and worse in religious and other "morality" constructs has gotten so ridiculously dated in a world of nearly 8 billion humans. The birth of a new mouth to feed, so celebrated, so held in reverence, so legislated beyond all common sense (see Texas) has only become nonsense in a world so strained for the resources, so competitive that starvation, plagues, all of nature's fury still battle to control it. Think of the wishes of most every parent-- for their child/children to "have it better than they did", ignorant of the victims who starve, the moral judgements and oppositional justification complexes, the ultimately self-destructive pride becoming far more apparent as greed. I watched as the "greatest generation" lived retirements only possible for the very few now.
Nature knows 7 billion adult humans cannot be driving powerful, self-propelled fossil fuel vehicles without complete planetary calamity, already embarrasingly apparent.
Even right here in "progressive" discussion boards, these greed seeds seep in. Lately I had a dead-end discussion with a DU'er regarding an apparent stuck in "morality" objection this person had to retention of the rainbow flag in a classroom? And I've been racking my brain trying to figure out exactly what the objection to one of the most benign symbols of equality comes from. Perhaps a possibly delusional denial like "My child won't be gay"? This member's objection to this symbol remained unexplained.
Denial solves nothing. I find little else more honorable in this world than those willing to accept the responsibility of taking care of a ready-made child, hats off Pete and Chasten.
Yes, many must get it through their greatest-generation mindset that yes, your child might be gay. Your child might not and yet not have any desire to produce you biological grandchildren because you find that desirable. Because you have some sense of security, a bit more shaken lately, of the idea that your money, investments and resources are infallable?
We can reverse "overshoot day", but it will take far more personal commitment than even many DU'ers are willing to admit to. Let's get real:

Oh, so close. Bzzzt. Ten points off for the little lower case "e" as an afterthought

Apparently, their big "walkout" protest plans suffer poor planning and turnout:

Trump of the Tropics to the last detail: Pocketnarist pro-Bolsonaro coup protest, and get a load of:



Catching up on Duffer Tea

Here's 11 seconds of relaxation

Between my Malamute's overwhelming love and this little snippet, the only hypertension healing posts I can find this morning.

There just aren't words...


Trumpism viewpoint

Holy canolies, DU'ers. I'd read about TFG getting booed, I didn't know Alex Jones is stirring the crap bucket now. "Amygdala hijack"... interesting... but stupid. Explains a lot about the wildly irrational tantrums I'm seeing from the dwindling Trumpers...
