    Good Luck America, you’ll need it…..

    • driguana says:

      going to be an insane week…

    • Miranda says:

      I’m supposed to visit Dad for the first time in over a year this weekend. He’s about an hour away. I’m going to do it as early as possible and get back in the house.

      • lateblum says:

        I hope you enjoy your visit with your father!
        Stay safe.

        • Miranda says:

          Thanks. I’ll have to see what’s happening. If things are actively on fire or there’s a lot of road blockage, I’ll have to put it off for another week.

    • lateblum says:

      They started boarding up Chicago last week. First it was because of the peaceful protests inMN and then it was in anticipation of the peaceful protests surrounding the Adam Toledo shooting.
      Good times.

    • elliesmom says:

      I ask again, what parents would volunteer their child as a test subject for a disease that doesn’t affect children? I know why the pharmaceutical companies are testing kids. They’re immune from liability if they kill or permanently damage the kids, and adding kids to the people who will get the shots every year is megabucks for them. When did people lose their minds?

      • 1539days says:

        Kids don’t get it easily, often have few symptoms and almost never die from COVID. Plus, only about half of adults are vaccinated, so there aren’t any vaccines for them. I think part of this is from Teachers Unions, whose members want to do low-effort teaching from home and are in fear of kids getting them sick because they don’t want the vaccine, and the global Bill Gates cabal who thinks getting people to take a questionable vaccine paves the way to overall compliance to other anti-freedom technology.

        • elliesmom says:

          Getting everyone initially is a problem of logistics, but once the covid-19 shots are annualized, it won’t be any more difficult than getting a flu shot every year. Because the one created by J&J doesn’t require any special refrigeration, it will become the one doctors prefer so people with a lot of money invested in Moderna and Pfizer have to shut it down.before it takes hold. No conspiracy theory needed. Just the way big business does business.

        • Constance says:

          They seem to be promoting the idea that they are going to wipe the virus out completely from the country and possibly the entire planet. That is really something that doesn’t happen. How long did it take to get rid of Smallpox? And I’m just waiting for smallpox to come raging back. Big pharma clearly sees disease as money so why would they wipe it out?

          • lateblum says:

            True story.

          • 1539days says:

            The other problem is that while Smallpox is confined to the human genome, we already know Cov-SARS-2 can transfer to animals. So, every creature great and small would have to be vaccinated AT THE SAME TIME to eradicate it.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I had misgivings about giving the HPV vax to a 12 year old. Brat can make that decision for herself when she gets a little older. Big pharma was pushing it hard. Commercial with a boy claiming to have gotten cancer because parents declined the shot. Huh? Make the argument that boys can spread it to girls, but save the manipulative bullshit. They double their profits by getting males to take it.
        How common is cervical cancer? Is a new vaccine worth the risk? How many kids have multiple sexual partners at 12? Her doctor agreed with me that there was no rush and perhaps no need. This was a few years ago and they were pushing it. Pup can make the decision for herself.

        • elliesmom says:

          I agree with letting a teen make this decision for herself as long as she knows waiting until after she becomes sexually active is a real risk. Like waiting until after you’re pregnant to ask for birth control. My friend took her 15 year old doctor to her OB/GYN to get her used to the idea of going and was surprised when her daughter walked out with a prescription for birth control and an appt for the second vaccine appt. She and the boy she had been playing with since nursery school had added sex to the things they did together. It’s 10 years later, and they’re planning the wedding. 🙂

          • Mothy67 says:

            I don’t get the threat of cervical cancer. I looked up the stats when media was applying pressure. It didn’t strike me as a health threat and I had a friend who died from it. I came across a significant number of side effects from the shot. Kid has a serious boyfriend. They both are athletic and driven. Will they soon? I hope not, but it’s the real world. His parents both work in social services and are strongly religious and Trumpian. I believe they will make good decisions. Fingers crossed. Will permit the pill if and when she inquires after discussing it with her parents. My mom was 15, my sister (her grandmother) 16, her mom 18. Kid is aware of the potential and is vocal about not getting knocked up. I might be wrong, but when she crosses that bridge I hardly see promiscuity. There is no rush for a vax.

          • Somebody says:

            My understanding is the Vax doesn’t protect against all strains of HPV, in fact doesn’t protect against a couple of the worst ones known to cause cancer. You should really check out exactly what it does and doesn’t protect against.

      • Woke Lola says:

        Come on now. You know the answer. The same people who would let a 4 year old decide their gender and get hormones for the child when they won’t start sexually developing for 10 years.

    • lateblum says:

      I see this as child endangerment. It’s abusive and dangerous.

  4. DeniseVB says:

    Dear Florida, DO NOT let DeSantis run for President, he’s a keeper ❤

    • driguana says:

      Thanks to DeSantis, Florida remains safe and vibrant.

    • Miranda says:

      We’re getting closer and closer to moving there.

      • 1539days says:

        Co-workers who just got to retirement age are looking for homes there. Even younger co-workers are vacationing there now because it’s basically free of COVID panic.

      • Woke Lola says:

        Interviewing for a job there this week.

        • Miranda says:

          Awesome! We can set up a conservative version of a commune 🙂

        • helenk3 says:

          with your brains, you will get it. Good Luck

        • Somebody says:

          No way! What part of Florida? The NE corner???

          • Woke Lola says:

            You know, I got permission (from hubs) to look in Jax, but this job is in Melbourne, FL. North of Palm Beach, and directly across the peninsula from Tampa. I have a cousin who lives in Gainsville and another cousin in Tampa, and a friend in Somebody, Helen, and Taw. 😍

            Of the four interviews I’m having this week, it’s the one I want most. But I do have an interview for a law firm in Greenville, NC this week as well, and that may just beat them all for pay. 2 other are in SC. I REALLY don’t want to stay in SC, tho. No offense to this truly beautiful state full of well-meaning people, but I can’t retire here. This state is not with it at all in terms of infrastructure, capacity, willingness, politics, bureaucracy, health care, education, you name it. They’re behind, behind, behind, and they really don’t want to catch up.

          • DeniseVB says:

            How exciting, new adventures with Lola !

          • Woke Lola says:

            It is just roughly 2.5 hours from you. I looked it up. I have plans to see you if I get this one. And I’m bringing chocolates.

          • Somebody says:

            Melbourne is beautiful, or at least it used to be. I haven’t been there in years. You won’t have seasons there, so you can throw away your winter gear😉

            We can meet up in St. Augustine or Palm Coast😁

          • taw46 says:

            Lola, Melbourne area is wonderful. I lived in Merritt Island. The Space Coast, you can watch launches. And lots of wildlife to photograph.

          • taw46 says:

            Somebody, she will need to keep some sweaters and coats. There were times when the temps dropped to the low 40°s! Luckily didn’t stay that way but a few days.

        • Locked-N-Loaded says:

          Fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you!!

    • DandyTIger says:

      Well shit, I may have to move there.

    • driguana says:

      We live in beautiful Delray Beach in Southeast FL and we are already being deluged by people coming here from NY, NJ and MA. It’s fine for people to move here as it is a bit of paradise but just don’t bring your failed politics with you…and that is already happening. When we were trying to get in to a restaurant with some friends on The Avenue on a packed Sat night, a disgusting woman accosted us telling us not to eat there…”the food is horrible”…how dare someone do that at a time when some of these places are struggling….and to make matters worse…she yelled at our friend…”I’m from NY!!! I know”. When you do that to us here in FL, be prepared, because we Fierce Independents will push back….and we do NOT want you here!! In this case, we simply walked away. Sad times.

      • Woke Lola says:

        I did not know that. You’d be really close if I moved there.

      • Somebody says:

        Driguana I know what you mean about the transplants from the NE. Oh my at the conversations I’ve overheard. I usually keep my mouth shut, but one loud mouth lady really ticked me off.

        A man was walking by on the sidewalk of the shopping area all decked out in Trump gear. This obnoxious woman felt she had the right to harass him. The man stood his ground. The woman questioned the man’s intelligence because Trump is a racist🙄 You see the man was black. It was obvious she was not from around here, her accent, her tag, etc. So I smiled and ever so kindly informed her A) such behavior is unacceptable and B) she moved to Trump country, our county voted 82% for Trump. For a moment she looked like she had seen a ghost, then she walked off disgusted.

        I regret I didn’t have the opportunity to inform her if she voted the same stupid way she’d ruin the reason she moved to Florida. I doubt she would have listened.

        I truly fear for our state. We get newcomers all the time, but this latest invasion is BIG. If they bring their voting habits with them we are in trouble.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I have Zillow set at Florida-waterfront-3/2-one story permanently set 🙂 I get a lot of hits between the A1A and intercoastal, love your area.

      And they don’t care. We have no gazillion-pound gorilla to make the media be honest. The DNC media and Democrats lie, lie, lie. Would love to see Sicknick’s family sue Democrats and the DNC media.

    Federal Government Caught Buying ‘Fresh’ Flesh Of Aborted Babies Who Could Have Survived As Preemies

    Americans should be outraged their government participates in the wide-scale human trafficking operation that created a market for harvesting the organs of murdered infants.

    Yesterday I watched the move ‘Bombshell’ The movie was alright, but the acting was incredible! For the first few minutes I wondered if Megyn Kelly was playing herself. She wasn’t. The role was played by Charlize Theron who deserves an award for her performance.

  13. lyn5 says:

    Democrats and the Deep State celebrate the Oklahoma City bombing each year as proof that right-wing fanatics are terrorizing the country.

    This is the same Washington Establishment that sternly warns us against blaming all Muslims for 9/11, which no one really does.

    But a lone wolf attack in Oklahoma City remains decades later the justification for Garland and the Deep State to attack conservatives.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Kind of feels like they want to push until they start a civil war. Or they round up all conservatives. I don’t think they’ll stop pushing this stuff until one or the other happens.

      • Constance says:

        I am really interested in what the Democrats see as their end point. It seems they are just arrested at the 2 year old level and continually acting out is their only goal. But there could be a larger plan. Or I guess most likely the stupid and naive are being used and pushed out front by people who have a evil agenda.

  14. elliesmom says:

    Since I’ve had most of my friends in excess of 40 years, I’m going to say this is a “new friend”, but I’ve known her awhile. There’s a place in RI called “Project Hand Up”. Every week you can go there and get a bag of free non-perishable groceries – no questions asked. Drive up, pop your trunk, and someone puts the bag of groceries in your car. I think this project is wonderful, and part of what I think is wonderful is if you’ve hit a rough spot, you don’t have to jump through hoops to get a little help. She’s a regular and keeps encouraging all of her friends to go. Here’s the thing – she’s married to someone who makes a six figure income, owns a lovely home, and has no children living at home. I look at her taking advantage of “free stuff”, and not ever considering there are a finite number of bags, and she, who is financially secure, might be taking the food from a family that really needs it, and I know why I feel the way I do about the left. All she’s thinking about is what can she get for free. She’s a Trump hater and thinks the world is being saved by Biden because conservatives are “selfish”.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Sometimes the irony of things like that is just too much. You kind of want to smack them on top of the head and scream.

    • 1539days says:

      Remember the “patriotic millionaires?” They were a bunch of rich people who wanted to get taxes raised on higher incomes to support more government programs. When they were told they could just give their money directly to the government, the response is that it only would work if everyone were compelled to pay and there was no reason for them to donate themselves.

      The billionaires like Gates and Soros funnel their money into NGOs because their budgets are so large they have the power of a government with none of the oversight. Very few rich people give money with no strings attached because too many of them want to tell the poors what to do.

    L.L. Bean is selling face masks. SMH.

    • lateblum says:

      Seriously??? Geez…
      And Lands End has been selling them since summer.

    • Constance says:

      I’m sure there is a big market for matching face masks. I have noticed many seem to match their mask to their mood. I wear an oversized rainbow tie dye mask when forced to. It doesn’t match anything. It is actually hideous.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        I have spent so much goddamn money on Etsy buying a face-mask wardrobe and I hope that a few months from now they will be useless. My favorites are the chiffon ones. Everybody is clearly over it, because I wear these things that are basically transparent to the grocery store (I take a paper one in case there’s trouble) and nobody says shit to me.

        • jadzia1971 says:

          I hasten to add that I have asthma, I have panic attacks in masks about 1/3 of the time (but never know when it will happen so it’s always a fun little surprise), and worst of all, oral comprehension of French is still a challenge for me and basically I can’t understand ANYTHING anybody says to me, so I end up having to ask cashiers to repeat things like 5 times, they get annoyed, and I end up humiliated and basically avoid going out to avoid having these experiences, so I guess that’s a win for the government???

      Steve Krakauer @SteveKrak

      Intellectual honesty is admitting when you get something wrong.

      CNN told viewers Sicknick was murdered with a fire extinguisher. Then they told viewers he was poisoned with bear spray. He wasn’t. But @BrianStelter and @JohnBerman don’t mind misleading viewers about the details.

    Psaki Pelted With Questions About Biden Opining on Chauvin Verdict in Testy Briefing: How is That ‘Ever Appropriate?’

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was peppered with questions at Tuesday’s briefing about President Joe Biden’s comments on the Derek Chauvin trial.

    Moments earlier in the Oval Office, the president — noting that the jury in the murder trial of the former Minneapolis police officer is now sequestered — said that he had spoken with the family of George Floyd late Monday, and went on to make a comment about the case.

    “I’m praying the verdict is the right verdict,” Biden said. “The evidence is overwhelming in my view.”

    • lateblum says:

      I’m surprised Psaki doesn’t just fall down in a heap from the dizziness she must experience from all that spinning.

  23. lyn5 says:

    The verdict is in.

    • lateblum says:

      This morning someone on Nextdoor wrote that this message:”KILL COPS” was painted on a wall in a construction area on a major street in north Evanston. That’s pretty unusual for here. We’ve also had a recent rash of assaults of black-teens-on-white-women walking alone in my neighborhood. That is also a new perk in this area.

  25. threewickets says:

    Why isn’t the fake news MSM comparing the fake plague COVID with real AIDS? Seems to be comparable … people dropping like flies worldwide. Unless AIDS was fake too, and one million American gay men didn’t die from AIDS. Is fake dying a gay thing?

  26. lateblum says:

    I think fake news msm reporters aren’t old enough to remember anything about AIDS. My oldest was a very small child when my favorite cousin died from AIDS. Remember – history only began when these children were born.

    • elliesmom says:

      Young people today also forget their grandparents grew up in the age of polio and the excitement of the discovery of a vaccine. We got smallpox vaccinations before we could go to school. We got tested in school for TB every year. We lived in the middle of measles epidemics, and many of us have had to cope with shingles, a leftover gift from having chicken pox as a child. We’re very aware of the value of vaccines. We also know sometimes avoiding a disease requires lifestyle changes. Whether we make them or not is up to our own comfort with risk. But we also went to school with children born without arms or legs because their moms had morning sickness and were prescribed a drug that was promised to be safe when used to treat an unpleasant but not life threatening condition. I find it condescending when young people preach to me that I don’t understand the dangers of covid-19. The other one is that “old people don’t uderstand what it means to be green” from people who can’t survive a day without electrical power.

      • 1539days says:

        The Gen-Xers and Millennials are the ones who started using that Autism conspiracy to stop having their kids vaccinated.

      • lateblum says:

        Oh, so true. . All of it.

      • Constance says:

        One of the Airbnb’s I rent is a Tiny House. The whole tiny house thing is a green, small foot print idea. It has a propane range an electric refrigerator that is about 2/3 normal size and an electric heater. That leaves only enough electricity for lights and one small appliance at a time. Most of the people I get are greens that come with one, day pack full of stuff. But I also get groups of a few 20 to 35 year old women who think it is cute and they want to plug in one hairdryer and straightening iron per person, they want a micro wave, turn the heat up to max and leave it there etc. They truly don’t get it when I explain there is purposely not enough electricity for that. The green concept is really just an affectation to most of them. The people who come with one small back pack also hardly leave any garbage, The girl groups leave comically vast quantities of garbage.
