There is something terribly wrong with this country when there are pot users in prisons

and convicted child murderers being pardoned and walking among us.

That is all.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems like it used to take years for a case to come up to Supreme

Court level. Now, it seems like it takes days. Am I remembering this wrong? If I am not wrong, what is different now?

A question about vaccines and masks

Once vaccines become available to the public, it seems to me that anti-maskers can just walk around with impunity. If questioned, they can just say they have had the vaccine, whether true or not.

So, will the safe path be just to continue wearing mask for the rest of next year?

How long do you expect to be wearing a mask because of the risk of covid?

I had a dream last nite.

This really happened. I have had some strange dreams in my life, but this one may tower over all the others.

In my dream, there are three elderly women, one of which "may" be me. These women, who live together, find a note in an old tin box. On the note is scribbled a spell of sorts. It reads, "You have a choice. You can live out the rest of your lives or you can live the next 24 hours as the 20 year old you were 65 years ago. Once you decide, either do nothing and live out your lives or say these words, "I want to be young again."

The three women spent most of the evening trying to decide which option to accept. In the end, they decided on their younger selves. They closed their eyes and mouthed the incantation while holding hands. When they opened their eyes, they were young again and for the next 24 hours enjoyed all the benefits that come with youth.

The dream ended with me watching my two compatriots quickly age and pass away within minutes of the 24 hr deadline. The last thing I remember before waking was slowing closing my eyes and smiling contently.

I was unable to return to sleep.

Now, the question. What would YOU do?

JMO One reason many Americans don't treat covid seriously enough

is that many of the HIGH PROFILE persons who get the virus either show few effects or are sidelined for a very short period.
Yeah, I know Herman Cain died, but it seems this pandemic is hitting the poor and disadvantaged disproportionally.

I attempted to find something to back up my musings. I found an article that seems to back up my thoughts. I will post a link below if anyone is interested.

IMO, if the rich and famous were dying at the same rate as the poor, the average American "might" take the taking of precautions more seriously. Of course, it wouldn't hurt to have someone competent in the WH, instead of a buffoon.

"What does average income have to do with poor outcomes from coronavirus infection? The diseases that are more prevalent in poor and minority communities reflect decades of structural inequalities, of the burden of racism, income inequality, and marginalization all of which add up to populations that are simply much more vulnerable to any stressors—and COVID-19 is no exception—than those who are richer, more connected, and have the resources to buy their health, in good times and bad. If there ever was an illustration of the fact that the virus does indeed discriminate, it is this. Yes, we may all be at risk of contracting the virus, but even when we do, some of us are much more likely to die than others."

Steven Wilson is a genius. He released this on Black Friday.

Sweeney is a whiney ass little baby

Always has been. Someone needs to shut him down.

He cares more about fucking football and his legacy than ANY player or their health.

Just for good measure, FUCK YOU Dabo!

"Swinney said Sunday that Clemson followed all required protocols when it traveled with a player who had shown prior symptoms of COVID-19 but did not receive a positive test result until after the team arrived in Tallahassee, Florida, on Friday night. Swinney implied that FSU's administrators wanted out of the game and used the positive test as an excuse to cancel.

"This game was not canceled because of COVID," Swinney said. "COVID was just an excuse to cancel the game. I have no doubt their players wanted to play and would have played. And same with the coaches. To me, the Florida State administration forfeited the game.""


You had a positive player asswipe. Period. 🖕🖕🖕

Ya know what makes me so angry? Re: Rittenhouse

This SOB domestic terrorist gets released on bail. This while, in Gitmo, there are still people being held there who have never had a trial. People who have been there since 2002.

He is released while there are an estimated 40 thousand people incarcerated for marijuana offenses.

Fuck, this pisses me off.
