What's The Covid Situation In Kentucky?....

The Vaccination Numbers?

The Positivity Numbers?

Daily case rate?



It didn't look like a lot of people were wearing masks at the Derby.

Over 50,000 people in attendance.

Is Anyone Out There In DU Land Watching - Debris?.....

If so - what the hell is that show about? Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys?

I don't understand what is going on in that show.

I Still Haven't Heard Anyone Comment About Joe Saying Trickledown Doesn't Work.....

That should be a major takeaway from this speech.

What's Up With Matt Gaetz?.....

I thought he would be indicted by now and resigned from the House. What gives?

Has Tucker Carlson Been Vaccinated For Covid?.....

Has he commented that he's gotten vaccinated? Has anyone asked him if he's been vaccinated?

Are the 'powers that be' at Fox requiring their employees to get vaccinated for Covid?

Have all the Repug Senators and Congresspeople been vaccinated for Covid? Are these same Repug Senators and Congresspeople requiring their employees that work in their offices in D.C. to be vaccinated? Are the employees that work their offices required to wear masks?

Do they socially distance in the cafeterias in the government office buildings in D.C.? Has anyone here at DU been to D.C. lately and have visited the Senate and House Office buildings? What are the requirements for wearing masks in those buildings?

How Can We Encourage People That Are Anti-Vaxxers To Get Vaccinated For Covid?......

I heard this morning that vaccinations for Covid are down 11%.

Just a while ago people were having a hard time getting an appointment to get the shot. There was a shortage of vaccines available. People were traveling great distances to get vaccinated. Waiting in lines.

Now vaccines are readily available. Lines are gone. But there is a shortage of people making appointments to get the shot.

Most of those people are either anti-vaxxers; misinformed MAGA's; Fox News listeners; vaccine conspiracy theorists; etc. Many are needle-adverse. Many feel they are indestructible and don't need to get vaccinated. Many are also anti-maskers as well.

In order to get to a decent 'herd immunity' here in the U.S. - we need to bring many of these people to their senses and get them in to get vaccinated or we'll never get out from under this pandemic.

What kind of strategies can be employed to get as many of these skeptics vaccinated? What has worked for you to convince your family, friends and colleagues to get in and get vaccinated?

Please post those suggestions in this thread.

I've used the 'grandkids' as an incentive. "If you ever want to hug your grandkids again - you must get vaccinated. If no vaccination - you don't get to be in the same room as your grandkids."

I've used the 'parents and grandparents' as an incentive. "You don't want to pass on Covid to your parents or grandparents if you're not vaccinated."

This works for all sorts of family and friend relationships.

But what can businesses do? Can they even require their employees to be vaccinated if they want to work in their establishments? Can you prevent an employee to work in your environment if they are not vaccinated? You might pay their health insurance - so couldn't you use that to get them to get vaccinated? You don't want un-vaccinated employees to pass on Covid to your customers? Do you? Is this legal or are you violating their rights and freedoms?

What about college students going back to the classroom? Can you require returning students to be vaccinated before they can attend live and in-class studies again?

Can a cruise-ship line require their potential passengers to be vaccinated before they can book a trip on their cruise ship? What about airlines? Trains?

Can a major PSA Campaign be mounted by celebrities to get the American People vaccinated?

Can a Broadway Theater require their audience to be vaccinated before they can buy a ticket?

What about - using that - it's the patriotic thing to do? It's the American Way. Vaccinate back to Freedom.

Bottom line - I'm posting this here to generate ideas to get those anti-vaxxers as mentioned earlier in this post - to get out and get vaccinated.

So please take some time here and tell us what techniques you've used to get family members; friends and colleagues to get vaccinated.

I have felt liberated getting my Pfizer shots - yet I'm still being real cautious - because it seems like we keep taking one step forward and two steps back in this pandemic.

What motivated me to post this today was the news that - vaccinations have fallen off 11% recently.

We can do and we have to do better!!!

Did I See Someone Throwing Money In The Street Around Cup Food In Minneapolis Today.....

after the verdict was announced?

I saw what looked like papers floating around in the air and a bunch of people on the ground picking these papers up. Was it money or something else? Or was I just imagining that this was happening?

Today's Verdict Will Now Put All Law Enforcement Officers Around This Country On Notice To...

'Think Before They Act'

One of their own didn't think - or if he did - he thought that he would be protected by his badge.

He thought that he could get away with anything because he was a cop.

Well that won't work going forward.

Law enforcement officers all around the country - know now - that they will be held accountable for their actions.

They need to take that into account in every situation that they might find themselves involved in going forward.

Think before you act - or you might find yourself in prison - like Derek Chauvin.

Indianapolis Mass Shooting News Conference On CNN & MSNBC......

After the Mayor of Indianapolis made his statement and asked law enforcement to discuss what was presently known about the shooting - FOX NEWS ran a series of commercials and other non-related stories and didn't let their viewers learn anything of substance about this shooting.

Very evident that they don't want to acknowledge this type of gun violence.

They totally ignored the known facts about this shooting.

Is It Time To Mount A Campaign To Overturn Citizens United?......

I Have To Ask This Question.....

If timing is everything - Is it time to mount a campaign to overturn Citizens United?

I know that the Repugs like the money they get from the Corps - but isn't this a chance to have both the Corps & the Repugs (i.e., Moscow Mitch, Hawley, Fox News, Laura Ingram, etc) to put their money where their mouth is?

All the Corps that signed on to that ad opposing voting restrictions. The Repugs saying Corps should stay out of politics. The Dems never on board with Citizens United.

Would we be able to garner some bipartisan support?

It is one way to keep the Corps out of politics - isn't it. With CU overturned. Huh?
