The surge is on. In ascendency. Not yet having reached its high.
The country is in trouble.
Biden is speaking to the issue tonight on national television.
The problem is real. Some medics are unabashedly saying…..Get vaccinated or die! Dramatic, yet will be true for many people.
Data the past few weeks shows red counties are swamped with COVID cases, many in the hospital, and a number dying. Whereas, the blue counties have been experiencing low surges with fewer hospitalizations and significantly fewer dying.
The blue counties success is attributable to Democrats being more prone to get vaccinated. Whereas, the Republican red counties don’t believe in the shots.
My booster shot time was in November. I got it. I am a believer.
My first two shots were Moderna. It was advertised by Moderna that only a half shot of Moderna was required as a booster. Pfizer and other vaccine producers said the whole shot.
Moderna claimed the post injection ill affect would be significantly less or not at all with the half dose. A full Moderna dose was not required.
It was possible to switch to Pfizer for the booster.
I spoke with my doctor and he said not to worry. Ok to go with Moderna’s half dose.
Now a surge upon us. I am sorry I did not go with the Pfizer booster.
Trump continues his lying ways.
He spoke before a Dallas crowd of his people sunday night. He proudly claimed he had received his booster shot. The crowd booed him. He then went on to tell the crowd that he saved 10 million lives because of the way he had the three major vaccines developed during his administration.
His claim would never survive a fact check.
Governor DeSantis another two face.
He was asked in an interview this weekend if he had received a booster shot. He hemmed and hawed. Asked a second time, he continued to avoid responding.
A clear indication that he had his ass covered with all 3 shots at the same time that he has been down playing the use of vaccines. A whore!
The DOW dropped 433 points yesterday. Economist attribute the drop to what the business world believes will be omicron’s impact on the world’s economy and the shelving of Biden’s Build Back Better plan.
Recall how Trump yelled and screamed about the need for the border wall. Billions were appropriated to build it. Very little was built.
The metal polls sit in neat piles along the border. Unused. Recall also that Trump took some of the wall money and sent it to Afghanistan to help their war effort.
It was announced over the weekend that “Trump’s big border wall” now is a “pile of rusty steel.”
Trump has brought his second suit against New York’s Attorney General to have the civil lawsuit against him thrown out. He tried earlier in the year when the court said he had no grounds and dismissed his case.
Trump has come up with new grounds. I am not sure what.The case has been filed in Federal Court in the Northern Dictrict of New York in Albany. I assume for jurisdictional reasons since the Attorney General’s official office is located in the State Capital in Albany.
If the new case is not thrown out of court for legal reasons, a motion will be made by the Attorney General to move the trial to New York City.
There is a rule in the law referred to as “for the convenience of witnesses.” If a large number of witnesses in a case live many miles from where the case was sued, the court on application made will move the case to a venue where it will be easier for the witnesses to attend.
