Propaganda works. Our society must be forever altered because of that one magic disease that should change everything forever. forever

It's a matter of faith. Not statistics. Not SCIENCE.
 
I still have a lot of folks wearing masks, sometimes a lot more. Pretty even mix between hipster types, older black people who watch too much TV, and older white people who watch too much TV...
 
And then there's the bunch who probably have warrants, or who are planning on stealing something or scoping for a holdup.

@Bogie: You should stock some absolutely worthless and cheap crap that is *Really Shiny* as bait and put it near the door so the tweakers steal that and leave the good stuff alone.  Put it behind a glass door or something (unlocked, of course) so it looks like you're trying to protect it and put a moderately-high price on it.

Yeah, I know you shouldn't have to play those games because people shouldn't steal your stuff.  But people suck; maybe you can limit the damage.

Oh... We do that... And they gravitate to it.
 
They're irritating.

"Inspector General Larry D. Turner, U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), announced that the Office of Inspector Generalís (DOL-OIG) investigations have resulted in more than 1,000 individuals being charged with crimes involving Unemployment Insurance (UI) fraud since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.1 The DOL-OIG also issued an Alert Memorandum identifying $45.6 billion in potentially fraudulent UI benefits paid to individuals with Social Security numbers: (1) filed in multiple states, (2) of deceased persons, (3) filed with suspicious email accounts, and (4) of federal prisoners," the Office of the Inspector General released this week.

45.6 billion
Yeah......

You know, for cold and flu season this year, I may ask my quack about a prescription for that horse dewormer stuff... Seems it may help now?

Not sure if it's more of a Covid issue, or more of a Bidenomics thing, but the price of an oil change seems to have doubled. I'm glad we'll be back in our house, soon, where I can do my own.

Stopped to pick up some milk & such on the way home tonight at the local grocery store.  DW asked how much the milk cost - I don't pay attention, we want/need it, put it in the basket - it's now $4.59 a gallon for local 2%.

Less than 2 years ago it was ~$2.50/gal.

I've not bought actual milk in years. I buy half and half for my coffee. If I buy it at my local grocery store its $5.69 a half gallon.

If I go several miles up the road to WalMart, it's $3.89 a half gallon.

Oil is way up, todays vehicles use more oil (my truck holds 8 quarts!), canít find enough lube boobs to round off drain plugs and strip them out, and so on. COVID really threw a wrench in supply chains and labor force as well
