A Question about a COVID-19 vaccination (Years Away?)

I will be more than happy to delete this post if it contains incorrect information. In doing research about vaccines, I came across a lot of things I didn’t understand. Translational RNA, amino acid and peptide formation and a whole lot more. One thing that I did read loud and clear was that the Ebola vaccine was developed, approved, and administered in, and I quote, “record time”—- 5 years. The rationale is that since they will be giving people COVID-19, albeit an attenuated dose, they have to be certain they don’t kill you with it.
When we are told that a vaccine may be discovered by September, is it possible that people assume that it will be ready to be deployed, not just ready to begin trials?
Anyone smarter than me, please correct me.

I finally think (cautiously) that Dear Leader will lose in November and then:

The government teat will dry up taxpayer spending on his bedbug shithole facilities;
Suck up enema nozzles like Barr won’t host $35,000 Christmas parties at his crypts;
Putin won’t be able to use him for money laundering;
Middle eastern sheikdoms won’t rent entire floors of rooms they never stay in to bail his and his demon spawn’s broke ass out;
The courts will pursue him like a hound on a pork chop;
His magats will go back under their rocks;
His properties will be so toxic they’ll have to be superfund sites;
In short, he’s fucked and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving shit bird.
I’m sure I’ve missed some so please add to my list.

Can someone help me understand

why Bernie Sanders isn’t already considered a third party candidate? Is it because he is running in democratic primaries? He is not a Democrat or a republican. Is the fact that he’s running in a Democratic primary the sole determinant? And before I get bombarded with the daggers of vitriol, let me be clear. 1. I mean this as an honest question. 2. I will vote blue, period. Full stop.

Moo-Nez's August 2018 Fundraiser

Makes so much sense now. He warned republicans that they HAD to keep the house or Spanky would be impeached. He’s up to eyeballs in cow shit.

About these tRump folks working for "free"

Manafort working for “free” - using his campaign job to solicit millions in loan forgiveness from crooked oligarchs.
Ghouiani working for “free” - scoring $500,000 (that we know of so far) for a Biden smear campaign.
Jared working for “free” - hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign money to bail his debt ridden ass out, and millions of taxpayer dollars for low cost housing contracts.
Ivanka working for “free” - dozens of Chinese patents to enrich her shabby chic brand.

There’s a pattern here, but I just can’t put my finger on it..

Dear TV Talking Heads: The Shittiest Cake Ever

Is the drumph “cake” you keep describing as an explanation for all things Orangeturd:
1. Racism, Nazi sympathy, and white supremacist views-“baked in the cake.”
2. Pathological lying- “baked in the cake.”
3. Love for dictators and tyrants-“baked in the cake.”
4. Obstruction of justice and cover up-“baked in the cake.”
5. Blind loyalty of his republican apologist enabler/Conspirators— “ baked in the cake.”

MAGATs clearly keep queuing up for another slice. Me—I had enough when I saw that shitgibbon float down the escalator.

Like I said, shittiest cake EVER and I’m tired of hearing that cliche!!

Well, here goes nothing....let us stipulate that impeachment is a political (Congressional) Option

if we accept that premise,why are so many impeachment “advocates” unwilling to acknowledge that the political reality, specifically hopelessly self-protecting compromised senators -McConnel, Burr, Paul, Graham et al, is such that these sycophants would never imperil themselves by convicting drumph? Their silence in the face of the damning Mueller report speaks volumes. There is no “final straw” for these devotees. Thus while certainly morally defensible, even justifiable, impeachment by House Democrats simply carries more risk than reward. Given the misguided OLC policy, Mueller’s actions make perfect sense. So reframe presidential behavior. Rescind the OLC prohibition against indicting a criminal president. Of course drumph is a criminal. He’s an unindicted co-conspitior in at least one felony. Republicans knew the bulk of drumph’s unfitness for the Presidency from the day he entered the race and stilly slavishly support him. I awaken every day horrified by the reality that this beast is president. The only thing I find more horrifying is the specter that he will destroy this country till January 2025 because the “cult of drumph” , the senate whom alone could convict him, has no shame, no conscience, and no patriotism.

To the pain brett---

Harvard has cancelled your spring class. Finally your wallet is going to pay the price for your disgusting behavior. That million dollar mortgage and those baseball tickets, and that private school tuition just got problematic. When you walk down the street people will openly ridicule you. Parents will shield their children from you. Friends will distance themselves from you. When you go to a restaurant people will shout about your behavior from every corner of the room. When you sit in judgement of others on your job, you will see the revulsion and disgust in your colleagues’ eyes, and re-live the litany of reasons you are unfit to judge. You will hear the protests of every woman with whom you were innappropriate. I hope you sit st home and Boof your way to misery for your sins.

You know that angry renter.....

......who knows his lease is just about up so he decides to *uck up the place for everyone else after he’s gone? So he pours concrete in the drains, puts fish in the ac vents, pees on the carpet, and does everything he can to make sure the place is uninhabitable. That sure seems to be the tiny handed dotard’s goal for the entire nation. The damage can be fixed, but it’s hard work, expensive, and irritating as hell.
