I just can't understand why at least...

...one single republican cannot tell Schumer to call for the BBB vote and he or she will vote for it, because it will help their state. When it finally gets passed and republicans start taking credit for it, Dems should plaster those republican states with billboards that say they voted no!

I went to Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvement for some parts for a door

Other than the employees, myself, and an elderly lady, I saw no one wearing a mask and the stores were packed. I don't consider myself as elderly yet though I will be 80 next month.
Middle Georgia is going to be really busy draining the gene pool in the coming weeks.

This is from the Supreme Court over 100 years ago:

“The Constitution does not import an absolute right in each person to be, at all times and in all circumstances, wholly freed from restraint. A community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic, and its members may at times, under the pressure of great dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand.” Jacobson vs Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11, 7-2 majority

It is not over yet stupid!

I live in Georgia and I wear a mask every time I go into a facility where there will be others.
I belong to a car club where about a dozen of our members have continued to meet twice a month for a meal at different restaurants. I stopped meeting with them. One died a few weeks ago from the virus and a second one last week.
Today I stopped by a supermarket for two items. When I got to checkout, there was an elderly lady in front of me, so I stood about six feet behind her in the checkout line. Then I felt someone actually breathing on my neck and turned around and a guy was standing that close behind me with no mask.
On my way home, I realized I had forgot something, so I stopped by Walmart. I was there about six weeks ago and a large majority wore masks. This time, I estimate 40% were mask free and that included many senior citizens and others who were obviously in poor health.
What is wrong with people? How can individuals who appear to be intelligent be so ignorant?

Happy Days are here again!!!!!!!

This song is from over 90 years ago (1929) that swept the nation. It express my feelings today as we will soon be rid or Misters Trump and McConnell and have a new President and two new senators. Have a listen and see it you don't feel just like they did back in those early days when they first heard this song.
