A comment in Citizens’ Voice this morning: “If you are unvaccinated, the virus is going to find you. It is just a matter of time.”
Right on. The unvaccinated are playing with dynamite.
The validity of the statement is found in today’s COVID Delta variant statistics. The variant makes up 83 percent of all new coronavirus cases. The 83 percent is up from 50 percent just 2 weeks ago.
Andy Slavett, former adviser to Biden’s Covid Response Team, told CNN last week: “It’s twice as infectious. Fortunately, unlike 2020, we actually have the tool that stops the Delta variant in its tracks: It’s called vaccine.”
I am compelled to return to a philosopher of note. Forrest Gump. He was correct in saying “stupid is as stupid does.” From my perspective, those unvaccinated are stupid.
An adverse Comment to a blog a couple of weeks ago suggested I was unaware Gump was not for real, etc. To the contrary, I made the statement in jest. I assumed everyone was intelligent enough to understand.
Let us not forget Forrest Gump was a star collegiate football player, was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, and became rich.
Our country is in dire danger should Florida’s Governor DeSantis ever become President. The man is worse than Trump.
DeSantis visited the Texas border recently. His people were selling Tee shirts and koozie cups attacking Dr. Fauci. They carried the imprint “don’t Fauci my Florida.” The sales were the beginning of another fund raising effort by DeSantis.
Is there no respect left anywhere in this country? Fauci is already responsible for saving more lives that DeSantis will, no matter what position he holds.
On this day in 1929, the Scopes trial ended. Also known as the Scopes Monkey trial.
Few are aware the trail was actually a ploy. The facts falsely presented so as Rhea County, Tennessee would receive national attention. It did.
Rhea County merchants needed business. They concluded they could bring droves of people in if something big occurred in their area.
Scopes was a young school teacher. He was accused of teaching evolution in his class in violation of a Tennessee state law. Nothing was ever more fraudulent nor phony.
Scopes was found guilty. Fined. On appeal, his conviction was overturned.
Who was in on the scheme originally? Certain business men, of course. Scopes. Perhaps the judge. I cannot believe Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan were. Both too big and respected to be part of such a shady scheme.
TACOS a hit! Many favorable responses.
Today paragraph 5.
Then big Afro Dave showed up at my door / All by himself he built my first store / He drove into town all ready to work / Found me in a bar and I felt like a jerk / He asked me to get some lumber if I could / And laughed when I pointed at an old pile of wood / Then Miss Jessie wanted us to work for her / She didn’t realize how busy we were / I told her we’re still working on the store / So she said I couldn’t live there anymore / She said , “Get out, you’re finished, you’re through, / And take that bushy haired friend with you.”
Tomorrow, the Chart Room.
Enjoy your day!
