The poultry group I’m in on FB was sending out avian flu warnings a few weeks ago.  Though more in the context of the risks to backyard flocks.

If we have a serum that makes people homosexual, then we can reverse-engineer it to make homosexuals straight. Conversion therapy!

In an interview with Reuters, Fauci on Monday said the pandemic arrived in the United States as the country was riven by political divisions in which wearing a mask became a political statement rather than a public health measure.

It's our fault. How unifying. We all know when they say "division," they mean "deplorables."

OMG. I just caught a Biden PR conference about the relief bill where he said, "Now critics say the plan is too big. Let me ask them a rhetorical question - what would you have me cut?"

I saw that too and had pretty much the same reaction.

Give me a few hours with that thing, I'll trim the *expletive deleted*it out of it.

I heard on Fox Business that the bill is 20% covid and 80% other stuff. If that's true, it's outrageous. Right or wrong, I've come to expect them to sneak like 20% pork into a bill, and that's just doing business. But the reverse? We need to start stringing these aholes up.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control slipped in a shocking piece of evidence in a recent report on low in-school COVID-19 transmission that severely undercuts the rationale for most COVID restrictions, including lockdowns.

2020: the flu season that wasn't.

Took kids for regular checkups yesterday.  Doc even said flu shots were pretty much a moot point.  Only shot was for the oldest (turning 17 in April) for meningitis.

Golly gee whiz, the masking and social distancing has killed the annual flu season.  There's another reason to make mask and social distancing mandates permanent.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Probably no way to get any kind of numbers, but I wonder how many people had the flu but just skipped visiting the doctor? Or maybe even had a mild flu but thought it was mild covid?

Got my first vaccination shot last Saturday, 20 Feb. Zero side effects, not even a sore shoulder.  I wonder if my shoulder is just getting used to shots... since I'm right-handed, whenever possible, I get shots in my left shoulder.

In observing the whole mish-mosh with vaccination schedules from "on high,"  I have complimented several of the workers involved in that square dance of the process.  I can't liken their efforts to "First Responders," but I can sure suggest it.

Good job !  Carry on !

I imagine the usual hypochondriacs are conflicted.  Should they run to the doctor for every little thing or stay locked down?

The hypochondriacs are who pay our bills.  They have been staying home.  Just like the data coming out about all the heart attacks, strokes, seizures and the like that weren't going to the ER.  We figure they either died at home or got better of their own accord.

I like the idea of providing bagels, but why add another logistical problem to the ones they've already got?

People are defending it, by pointing out that people will be persuaded to get the vaccine if they see their friends posting those selfies.  :facepalm:

I guess "trust the science," really means "follow the herd."

1/3rd of active-duty troops or National Guard are declining the COVID vaccine.  Interesting comments on the implications of this as a bellwether for the society at large.

Bend over for America

If, as the article implies, that diplomats are "exempt", is it possible they were "implanting" something instead????  ;/

Before the COVID-19 pandemic forced Jefferson County Public Schools to quickly transition to remote learning, students had been suspended nearly 16,000 times during the 2019-20 school year.

Since then, overall behavior referrals at JCPS have plummeted as students learn from home.
