My 90 year old neighbor has Covid. (OANN/QAnon follower)

She is unvaccinated and lives with her son who is also unvaccinated. The son had tested positive with no symptoms and works at a small casino in the area. He went to another (vaccinated) neighbor and asked if she would go to their home and check on his mother while he was at work. She told him that she could not. She is elderly with health issues. She also backed away from him and asked him to continue the conversation outside. He got mad and gave her the “I guess you’re not a good friend” spiel and refused to tell her how the mother was doing. I doubt that it made a difference, but after I heard about this, I called the casino and reported that he had told someone that he tested positive just in case he hadn’t gone through their protocols. (If they have any.) I’m glad that he knew better than to come to me, but am livid that he put my neighbor at risk. I don’t understand how someone can go to another person’s home, announce that he had Covid, not let the person know his current status, and then storm away because the neighbor wasn’t willing to put herself at risk. 🤬🤬🤬

My thoughts about Stephanie Grisham's book. (I'll Take Your Questions Now)

It was a quick easy read. For most of the book, she was devoted to Melania and couldn’t stand Jared and Ivanka. Mark Meadows also came off as a jerk. tRump came off as a weird ill-tempered fool who would also use flattery as a form of control. Personally, I think that she could have said a lot more but held back. I also don’t believe all of her protests of innocence when clashing with the “big bad bully” press.

Until the last chapter, she took, what I consider to be, a typical Republican approach and blamed everyone and everything but herself for any mistakes that were made. The ending somewhat mollified that, but her “Republicanness” did shine through.

All in all I enjoyed the read. The tRump chaos was definitely alarming, and it was interesting to get her perspective on how Melania handled it.

Sad! I enjoyed his podcasts.

“On September 24, 2021, Mike “Tags” Tagliere passed away after a long battle with COVID-19. Tag is a loving husband and father, an unparalleled fantasy football analyst, and most importantly, he is an outstanding and kind person.”

They joined the Wisconsin Proud Boys looking for brotherhood.

“ Berry, along with a member of the Wisconsin Proud Boys and another former recruit, told USA TODAY the group is a den of racism and antisemitism. Moving up within the group, they said, is dependent on sadistically bullying potential members and promoting white supremacist talking points.”

Tammy Baldwin brought ",la" beer named for Kamala to the senate women's dinner.

“The low-key Wisconsin Democrat didn’t arrive empty-handed at the Naval Observatory on Tuesday evening for Vice President KAMALA HARRIS’ dinner party with women senators. She brought beer. And not just any beer — Kamala-themed, nearly 10-percent alcohol content beer.

Baldwin brought Harris a four-pack of “,la” (as in “comma-la”) from Wisconsin’s Minocqua Brewing Company. The beer pays homage to Harris, featuring a stylized image of her on the can. “It’s the strongest beer we could make, a 9.7% alcohol by volume imperial (we prefer Vice Presidential) stout,” the brewery boasts on its website.”

Piers can't handle the heat.

“Piers Morgan, who on Monday dismissed Meghan Markle’s allegations of racist treatment by the British royal family, stormed off the set of his own show, “Good Morning Britain,” on Tuesday after being called out by co-presenter Alex Beresford for his relentless criticism of the Duchess of Sussex.

“OK. I’m done with this. Sorry. No. Sorry. You can trash me mate, but not on my own show,” Morgan told Beresford as he walked away.”

He thought it was unsafe so he made it unsafe?

https://wkow.com/2021/01/04/prosecutor-wisconsin-pharmacist-thought-vaccine-was-unsafe/

“A prosecutor says a Wisconsin pharmacist told police he tried to ruin hundreds of doses of coronavirus vaccine because he felt the medicine wasn’t safe.”

An old coworker's mother just passed away from COVID-19.

Both were MAGAS. I’ve seen the mother shopping without a mask. I can only hope that this will make the rest of the family realize that tRump is an imbecile and become more vigilant about COVID safety precautions, but I’m doubtful. It’s just so fucking sad and unnecessary.

WI attorney general sues over lame duck law.

https://www.channel3000.com/wisconsin-attorney-general-suing-over-gop-lame-duck-law/

“ The lawsuit Monday is from Attorney General Josh Kaul, together with Democratic Gov. Tony Evers. It targets parts of the law requiring the state Department of Justice that Kaul runs to get approval from the Legislature’s budget committee before settling certain lawsuits.”

A college friend was in the Mayfair Mall during the shooting.

She was in Macy’s lower level and heard the shots. She and others ran out as the police arrived. So far there are 8 injured with no deaths.
