“This is for those of you who’ve chosen to quit your jobs rather than submit to a vaccine mandate. You’re mad at government. But the rest of us, we’re mad at you. This could have been over by now, and you’re the reason it isn’t.” New column:https://t.co/zVfgRj2MbN— Leonard Pitts, Jr. (@LeonardPittsJr1) September 24, 2021

If you are still refusing to get vaccinated for COVID, please just spare us the faux intellectual explanations and political-ideological justifications.

#Maddow Dominion lawsuit deposition of Rudy Giuliani reveals that he had never vetted the source who claimed that Dominion voting machines deleted votes. Also, he may have seen evidence on some social media site. Probably Facebook. 🤦🏻♂️— Arthur Blake (@arthurblake0) September 29, 2021
Rudy Giuliani admitted in a deposition in the Dominion lawsuit that the #BigLie is exactly that-a lie. There was no proof of fraud, no investigations. Just a rumor he ran with. And look what has happened since. 🤬 #Maddow #RepublicansAreDestroyingAmerica #VoteBlue2022 #DemVoice1— Elisa Resists 🌊💪 (@senseidai) September 29, 2021
We should be making it easier for people to vote, not harder. I’m talking about the student who works two jobs between classes, the single mom with three kids, and the workers working the late shift.— Vice President Kamala Harris (@VP) September 29, 2021

Just had my phone incorrectly autocorrect “ducking” to “fucking,” which means I’ve won, I’ve finally broken its spirit. How does failure taste, demon box.— Sonny Bunch (@SonnyBunch) September 28, 2021

Hope your day goes well…
One last thing…
He thinks he’s still the president.
LOL that reply about Gates is funny. OTOH we are talking about a corporation whose mission statement used to be “ to put a computer on every desk and in every home”…..hahahaha
But a vermifuge with liver-killing properties is perfectly fine. OK.
If someone thinks the virus isn’t real, in the face of their family members dying, there’s not much you can do.
and hydroxychloroquine and hydrogen peroxide and bleach and just this morning I saw something about buying an oxygen machine and self-cannulating.
Reminds me of the CarTalk days, when it was merely funny, and Tom and Ray talking about “there’s the easy way, and then there’s the Cowboy Way.”
We’ll miss Angela Merkel. (sniff) A calm, intelligent, forthright leader. Always an adult on the world stage.
