      It should be blocked, it’s unconstitutional.

      • lateblum says:

        It won’t matter. This administration is tyrannical and they won’t let something like a Constitution get in their way. Not only that, people are so fearful of even sitting in the same room with an unvaxxed person, they may insist that businesses enforce the mandates or else risk being boycotted to death.
        I know people here who would pressure the very small family owned businesses in this town. Now that being “woke” is a such a sign of pride here, there would be no shortage of protestors. smh

        I hope it helps Days, I think he was on the verge of losing his job over the vac mandate? I imagine a lot of jobs were lost already, what a clusterf**k FJB has created.

          Today I realized that at this point, there is pretty much nothing anybody can say or do to convince me to get this injection. Our government is acting like a bunch of used-car salesman with the power of a militarized police force behind them. And anybody who has ever bought a used car knows that a sell THIS hard is a big red flag. These assholes can put me on house arrest again (you know it’s coming), ban me from everywhere (I put workarounds in place a year ago, we aren’t gonna starve), it is simply not going to work.

          Denise, it gets worse.
          I now have a job offer for like 50% more pay at a place 1/3 of the commute. I’ll be working for an engineering staffing firm. Problem is, that the location is a government contractor and requires employees to be vaccinated by a certain date. I’m not sure how I’d fall into that as I won’t be working for them directly (a former co-worker is employed there, but he got the vaxx a while ago).

          If I stay at my crappy job, they will probably not risk losing employees by mandating shots unless every other business has to.

          • lateblum says:

            You’re right, Days. I think if I were in the same situation, I’d stay with where I know the last of the land – unless I knew the new guys were not going to force a vax on me. And as long as I could tolerate the “crappy job” until this vaccine mandate madness ends. But that’s me. I’m not a huge risk taker.
            P.s. I hope this new employer won’t require the vax. That would make your decision so much easier. Good luck with your decision.

    A whole week off of school for my two youngest because some kid in their class tested positive. Given that these are 10 year olds we are talking about, I would bet money that the kid in question isn’t even actually sick. Kill me now. I love them to bits, but it isn’t easy running a combination elementary school/law firm.

    • elliesmom says:

      My daughter insisten on getting Crash vaccinated because she believed if a kid had a positive covid test, only the unvaccinated kids would be sent home, but it doesn’t work that way.

      • Somebody says:

        No it does not work that way. Why? Because you can still get covid and SPREAD covid if you are vaccinated. The vaccine supposedly aids in keeping you from getting seriously ill, but a 10 year old has a better chance of being struck by lightning than having a serious case of covid.

        All of my grandchildren had covid, so they have natural immunity. However, if one of their classmates tests positive they still have to be quarantined. I’m pretty sure covid has run through the schools here, so I doubt we’ll see more quarantines. The annual flu is a much bigger risk for school aged children, yet they never quarantine a class where a kid has the flu, they just let it run through the school.

        FYI, my oldest grandchild is 11, she was sick for a day and a half with covid. For 4 to 5 days following she was a bit tired and had a depressed appetite which we think was due to loss of taste and smell. The illness symptoms of fever, chills, stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, etc., only lasted about 36 hours.

        My younger two grandchildren ages 7 and 8, were both sick for about 12 hours. I’m not kidding, 12 hours. They had no lingering effects at all. They woke up with fever, chills, the whole nine yards, by dinner they were both fine. My son was blown away.

        My son, who is fully vaccinated was sick for a week and had a really rough go for about 12 hours of that with his O2 dipping. We were debating exposing ourselves to get him to the state site to get monoclonal antibodies, but he rebounded. I’m still ticked at him for waiting to call us until daylight, things could have gone south in a hurry😠 They were all sick the first week of September and he regained his sense of smell and taste finally last week.

        They all had confirmed covid, but if a classmate or co-worker tests positive they’ll still be quarantined even though the re-infection rate for recovered covid patients is around 1%.

        • elliesmom says:

          I didn’t even try to talk my daughter into not vaccinating the kids. It would have been an exercise in futility that just ended with both of us angry. She had her pediatrician calling her to make an appointment, the teachers demanding the school “make it easier for parents to vaccinate their kids than send them to school unvaxxed”, the gymnastics school saying no unvaxxed kids after Jan 1st, and all of her friends chomping at the bit to get their kids jabbed.

          • DeniseVB says:

            When the twins were born in ’03, the hot button issue was baby vacs linked to Autism. My DIL shopped pediatricians when she was pregnant and found one who gave the MMR in separate shots because he felt if there was the possibility of a link, it would be that bad boy. Or something. I stayed out of, the girls are fine and even jabbed now. At 18, they made up there own minds (and the Navy for Charlotte 😉 )

          • elliesmom says:

            I always thought Robert Kennedy Jr was a nutter when it came to vaccines, but he was one of Tucker’s hour long guests on his daytime show. I’m not sure I agree with him still, but he’s done an incredible amount of research on the empirical analysis on when the sudden surge in autism and food allergies, especially peanuts, happened and what other things happened at the same time. “Correlation does not mean causation”, but the numbers do say we should be looking at those things. Since I no longer trust the CDC or the NIH, I’m not so quick to dismiss him.

          • lateblum says:

            I’m sorry, em. My dil did the same. I don’t know if they went in last Friday or if they’re going this Friday. I am so concerned about it. They aren’t telling me much since they disinvited me to Thanksgiving.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        Here’s something else that makes NO GODDAMN SENSE: the seven-day quarantine. A and R have to get Covid-tested tomorrow and if it’s negative, they are required to stay home isolated for a full seven days and then get a second negative test before they are allowed to come back to school. Incubation period, don’t ya know.

        There are five other people who live in this house, three of whom are full-time students. None of them are quarantined or required to isolate. Once these kids get the negative test, I could very easily bring covid home from the grocery store or whatever in the middle of their quarantine and give it to them late enough in the quarantine that it won’t show up yet on the Day 7 test. Or that could happen if they are in school instead of cowering at home. What is the point of imprisoning 26 kids (the # of kids in their class minus the kid who actually did test positive), all of whom are of an age that their realistic risk factor is essentially zero, under these circumstances?

          • Somebody says:


            My older two grandchildren were quarantined a couple of days apart, but the youngest wasn’t nor were any of the kids on the bus🙄 The middle child was quarantined first, the positive kid was absent Thursday and Friday. Her class was sent home first thing Monday morning.

            My oldest grandchild was directly exposed. The girl she sits next to on the bus and has 4 classes with came to school sick and was sent home. She tested positive that afternoon at urgent care. Knowing that, the school called all of the “exposed” students to the office, gave them their quarantine papers and put them on their buses🙄🙄

            Throughout this my youngest grandchild wasn’t quarantined. The oldest grandchild got sick on Saturday, my son the wee hours of Monday morning. My son called me Monday morning to ask my opinion about whether to send the youngest to school, the other two were quarantined anyway. I told him to absolutely keep her home and he did. The health department thanked him and told him he made the right decision.

            Our county has a very strict attendance policy complete with a strict limit on “mama notes”. That’s why my son hesitated and I guarantee you that’s why the girl sitting next to my oldest grandchild was at school sick.

        After he was informed that he will be helping around the house because this isn’t a vacation, one kid informed me that he is not the housekeeper.

        WELL. Looks like you’re DEFINITELY that now, little man.

    For the Hallmark Movies fans, this is hysterical. They have more on their YouTube channel……

    • swanspirit says:

      That is hilarious!!!

    • taw46 says:

      That is so funny. Especially the ice skating part, because all the Christmas movies have that, and there is always one of the pair that can’t skate. When I am depressed, disgusted, or stressed about what is happening in our world, there is nothing like a Hallmark movie to dull my senses. LOL. (although there are some that aren’t too bad).

  7. lateblum says:

    I meant to post this little story yesterday, but watched a Christmas movie instead. It just shows that Jacob Blake, the felon whose shooting was the cause of the Kenosha riots, didn’t fall far from the family tree. Or at least one side of the family tree.

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asked a federal judge on Nov. 15 to give it until the year 2076 to fully release the documents in its possession tied to the approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

      They are just so deceitful. I can barely find words to describe how disgusting the CDC and FDA are. They hope everyone who cared about the truth r/t Covid will be dead by then.

    NBC just lied/ denied that a “freelancer” tried to follow the bus, or photograph the jurors. They said his traffic violations had nothing to do with being in the proximity of the bus.
    This is such an obvious lie, it is unbelievable.

    • Shez ZK says:

      The panel on Rekeita Law stream sure had a good chuckle when Tater from MSNBC – (D) immediately tweeted out two tweets trying to distance themselves with bullshit excuses and denials. They laughed even further at him that how sweetly ironic it would be if the judge declares a mistrial on media jury intimidation.

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL, he was instructed to set up post verdict interviews with some of the jury members, kind of a scoopy thing on the other nets. Still a no-no. Not sure what the latest is, haven’t been stalking Twitter in awhile 🙂

    I just want to say, as a person who spent 20 years teaching astronomy and was trained by NASA to do it, and who owns a beautiful telescope, and bought a house with a clear view of the night sky, and added a second story porch to the house for comfortable viewing, I will once again be missing the lunar eclipse because the rain is due to begin in an hour or so and continue into the post-dawn hours. lol

    I know you will be shocked to hear this, but my quarantined daughter DOES NOT have Covid. She is under house arrest for 7 days anyway because muh 7-day incubation period, NOTWITHSTANDING THE FACT that because of the no-school-on-Wednesday thing, she should now be on Day 3 (assuming the infected kid was in class on Tuesday, which of course I do not know), but I guess the French are doing math the Common Core way now.

    The H man’s son is out getting his test now. I expect that it will be a big fat negative. He, too, will remain under house arrest. This is the kid who sassed me with the “I’m not the housekeeper,” so he (along with my daughter, who has been informed that she is going to be the guest of honor at a room-cleaning party when she gets home from her dad’s this afternoon) will have many fun and exciting household-helper activities planned for the duration of the quarantine.

    • elliesmom says:

      i used to tell my kids at various times- I am not the maid. I am not your personal chaffeur. I am not the chef at a restaurant. I am not the cruise director. i am not a banker. When my son brought one of his girlfriends home, she asked me what I was, and my son said, “I can give you a list of what she’s not.”
