Hopefully you haven't already heard this.

Of course you know Faux News is going on and on about their fake Christmas tree getting torched and acting like it’s terrorist activity.

I said two things about it: 1) if it’d been a cross, Faux would have called it “heritage not hate”; and 2) only a good guy with a lighter can stop a bad guy with a lighter.

But I saw some genius on Facebook call it “Pine/11.” I just about laughed myself into a nosebleed.

🌲/11

As a diabetic, I'm very tired of seeing diabetics compared to anti-vaxxers.

My disease is not communicable.

My disease does not represent a threat to anyone but me.

There is no vaccine for diabetes. You can damn sure bet I would have taken one.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, and has nothing to do with anyone's lifestyle.

Type 2 diabetes can occur in people with healthy lifestyles.


When you compare me to an anti-vaxxer and say that if they're not treated, I shouldn't be treated, you are insulting and degrading me, and everyone on this board who has diabetes. We don't deserve this.

Please don't hold alcoholics up as an example, either. There are people who are predisposed to alcoholism who have no idea they are until they take that first drink, and then it's too late. If you've ever had a drink, and you're not an alcoholic, the only thing separating you from them is luck. They don't deserve to be compared to anti-vaxxers, either.

Do you think that anti-vaxxers deserve medical treatment, or any other benefit of society? Just say that you are just fine with a complete lack of consequences for their carelessness, irresponsibility, and complete unconcern for others. Don't drag any other groups LIKE MINE into it.

Woo hoo! Just got my second Pfizer shot!

10-14 days to immunity!

Just got my first COVID vaccine!

First shot of the Pfizer vaccine. Totally painless.

Ron Johnson - the condensed version

Quote:

“Even though those thousands of people that were marching to the Capitol were trying to pressure people like me to vote the way they wanted me to vote, I knew those were people that love this country, that truly respect law enforcement, would never do anything to break the law, and so I wasn’t concerned... Now, had the tables been turned—Joe, this could get me in trouble—had the tables been turned, and President Trump won the election and those were tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters, I might have been a little concerned."

Condensed version:

"If it's all white, it's all right."

In my opinion, this development in the impeachment trial is fantastic.

We were looking at an acquittal today. No doubt in my mind. But this is an opportunity - a REAL opportunity - to get more information to the American people, and most importantly, to get as many Republicans as possible ON THE RECORD UNDER OATH.

We all know how differently Trumps lawyers talked in and out of court. Being under oath makes a difference for most people. I am thrilled at the prospect of doing that to as many Trump officials and Republican politicians as possible.

I'd like to express my profound gratitude for the hearts!

When I saw a DU notification, I assumed I was going to be fussed at for some reason, but the hearts! This is the first year I've ever gotten hearts without asking for them before and it was such a pleasant surprise! Whoever sent them to me, please know that you made my day!

Don't ask me to eat crow.

They're wonderful, intelligent birds.

BUT.

I sure as hell am glad to be wrong, and I'll gladly have a huge helping of metaphorical crow!!

I want to see Mitch McConnell's spirit crushed.

If there are indeed 130K early votes coming in from Dekalb

Then with the current numbers as they are, 94.5% will have to be Democratic for both our candidates to take the lead from Dekalb Co. alone.
