Got to have something to justify locking us down again before the midterms.  Mail-in ballot fraud is hard to pull off without locking everything down.
It's sad that is the first thing that comes to mind post-Covid.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

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.

Surely this disease couldn't come in through our porous Southern boarder and affect us?

That's racist. Nothing bad has ever come through the Southern border. You're just ultra/dark/mega maga.

As things "reopen" here, I haven't seen as many of the emerging woke folk neighbors walking their dogs.

Seriously - I think some of 'em had their critters put down. For "safety."

I'm almost certain the "K" in Monkeypox is silent.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

I may need to find a link.  My understanding is nearly all the people who contracted monkeypox were connected to a gay kink event in Europe.  I haven't heard anyone talk about what stuff went on at the event.

Because to do so would be horribly homer phobic and completely racist. I can't believe you're being such a horrible person!

Quote
Three cases in Belgium have also been linked to a large-scale fetish festival in Antwerp, according to organisers. The Darklands Festival warned people who attended four days of parties, starting on May 5, that authorities had linked the event to the country’s three confirmed cases.
-----------------------
Darklands is a ticketed event that describes itself as a place where “various tribes in the gay fetish community (leather, rubber, army, skinhead, puppies...) come together to create a unique spectacle of fetish brotherhood”.
I think I will stop there.  Already too much info.  I wouldn't be surprised if there was a lot more that I really don't want to know.

Enrique Ruiz Escudero, the region’s cabinet minister for health of the community, said on Friday that health officials had traced many of Spain’s 30 monkeypox cases to a single sauna in the capital.
