Just read in today's Washington Post that 58% of the US eligible population ages 12 and over - 162.5 million people have received at least one dose of the vaccination!

Gob-smacking, when you think of where we were less than 6 months ago!

On my knees in gratitude and admiration for what Biden has been able to do. Pure good.

Apparently the former guy's attempt to off the population (I believe him to be a sociopath of that order) FAILED!

Anyone like and listen to Glenn Kirschner?

I'm a big fan of him, and of podcasts.

He said something that echoed a recent thread here, that I'd like to share.

It boils down to:

drumpf is the most investigated and least prosecuted person there is. For crimes and acts we've all seen with our own eyes. And that's got to change. Indictments need to start dropping.

Accountability must be had.

The advantage Rs have over us

is they don't actually care about the country, what is best for its people and future.

They have no shame and no sense of duty or ethics.

When you rid yourself of all that, there is nothing to stop you from your base instincts, perceived self-preservation, sadism, sociopathy.

Have your friendships changed

since COVID?

I see almost no one, hear from no one.

Truly feeling isolated and alone.

Effing secret service

Anyone watch Maddow on Carol Leonnig's new book?

I believe the definition of trump will append over time.

We already know the verb and adjective.

Some day it I think it will be a noun, symbolic of the stupid, anti-education, racist, revisionist, misogynist, regressive faction and thread that has persisted throughout American politics.

"It's a trump." "She's a trump."

In other words, I don't believe these people are truly about a sagging lunatic NY abuser who couldn't give a rat's ass about them.

He is a symbol to them.

They will move on, as always, and the thread will persist, in smaller or larger numbers as time marches on.

Re CDC OK-ing lifting mask mandates

From what I'm reading, if you are vaccinated you are reasonably safe (and also unlikely to transmit).

If you are UNvaccinated - that's where the risk lies?

So.... have at it anti-vaxers???

Biden O'Donnell interview tonight

Our President has mad political skills!

Such a humble, genuine, intelligent patriot - blows my mind!

Obama should pat himself on the back for seeing this in Joe!

Gotta admit - I underestimated him(Joe). I think I was a little ageist- even though I myself am 66!

Kids' movies

What does it say about me that I prefer a quality kids' movie over anything else? Kids' TV, too!
