A very simple explanation of "cancel culture".


"Cancel Culture" isn't a real thing.

What republicans see as some nefarious organized mass conspiracy is nothing more than society's public rejection of unsavory actions and ideology.

It is LITERALLY the very visible hand of their own adored free market at work.

Arkansas lowering eligibility age for virus vaccine to 65

Arkansas has lowered the eligibility age for receiving the coronavirus vaccine from 70 to 65.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Tuesday announced the move, saying it will make the vaccine available to another 115,000 people in the state.

The state reported 834 new cases of the virus, bringing its total since the pandemic began to 316,593. The state’s deaths from COVID-19 grew by 14 to 5,377.

Hutchinson said the state has enough supply of the vaccine to handle the expanded eligibility. He also announced that he plans to extend the state’s emergency declaration for the pandemic.

Arkansas weather whiplash.



Similar whiplash readings were recorded across the state. The current temperature where I'm located is 62F. That may be our overnight low.

Lol. Speaking of Ted Cruz.


Middle Age Riot
Ted Cruz is what happens when a flaming bag of shit is left on someone's porch and instead of stamping it out they send it to Congress.

Forgive me. I shouldn't do this, but I couldn't help myself.

Off work the last few days, I've been watching cooking shows that I usually don't see.

I just saw a rerun of an Emeril show where he made white beans and ham hock. Good stuff.

At the end he showed how they would serve the dish in the south. He ladled everything out onto a large platter and brought it to the table.

Now, I ask you folks, have you ever seen a pot of beans served on a platter? A serving bowl, maybe, but most often right out of the pot they were cooked in.
