Section 230 eh?


Perfect!! Love this!

He’s such a bully and wannabe dictator

Hope he sells ALL his property in the US, at a massive loss, and flees for Russia after Jan 2021

So, he's actually NOT positive towards the negative?

Breaking with long-standing precedent, the Trump White House will NOT release formal economic forecasts this summer showing the extent of the projected downturn. I wonder why? 🤨

The Great White North??

So, watching the countdown to the first astronauts to launch from American soil in years, Doug and Bob, does anyone ELSE keep thinking of The Great White North??

Plans Unveiled for the Phased Reopening of Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks, Resort Hotels and Disney Stores
Because theme park capacity will be significantly limited as we welcome guests back to the magic, we will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that will require all guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. At this time, we are temporarily pausing new ticket sales and Disney Resort hotel reservations so we can focus on guests with existing tickets and reservations (Disney Vacation Club members can still make new reservations). Existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders will be able to make reservation requests in phases before new tickets are sold; we’ll be reaching out to these guests soon to provide additional details. We will resume new ticket sales and hotel reservations after that period of time. Theme park reservations will be limited due to attendance limitations and will be subject to availability. More details about this new reservation system will be available soon.

Additionally, Disney Vacation Club resorts at Walt Disney World will reopen to members and guests and Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground will begin to reopen on June 22. Disney Vacation Club resorts in Vero Beach, Florida, and Hilton Head, South Carolina, will also open to members and guests starting on June 15. Plans to support required physical distancing as well as enhanced cleaning measures, along with a number of other safety and cleanliness protocols, will be implemented as part of this planned phased reopening.

Today, our World of Disney retail shop reopened at our Disney Springs shopping and dining complex at Walt Disney World. And in the coming weeks, Disney Stores will begin a phased reopening of operations globally, beginning with a select number of stores in the United States, in addition to stores in Europe and Japan.

We’re looking forward to reopening our theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and stores and doing so in a responsible way. In this spirit, our destinations will continue to follow enhanced safety protocols based upon applicable guidance from health authorities and government agencies. As we all must work together to promote the health and safety of everyone, cast members as well as guests 3 years of age and older will be required to wear appropriate face coverings in theme parks and common areas of resort hotels. All guests will also undergo temperature screenings prior to entering a theme park; cast members will also have temperature checks. Cashless transactions are recommended, and cleaning and disinfection procedures will be increased in high-traffic areas.

Some of my earliest 45RPMs as a kid

Oh. The memories. And on the anniversary of Muhammad Ali beating Liston

But this was probably my favorite

Getting close to home. Real close

Someone my daughter works with tested positive the other day. Just found out last night. He’d gotten it from his mother

We thought he hadn’t worked at the restaurant since Mother’s Day two weeks ago and thought, ok, two weeks. We’re probably ok

Found out today she worked with him earlier last week. They all wear masks and clean like mad tho. But... She and her bf just went to get tested. Will know in 48-72 hrs

She said it was like having her brain scraped (nasal swab)


And for me today. Very few people in Target just now were wearing a mask. Just a few of us. Last week it was about everyone. It’s about caring about others, not some undue hardship on you. People disgust me with their ignorance and lack of respect

Cops were ticketing people who were dropping people off at the front though instead of just moving on

She Beat COVID-19 After Taking trump's 'Miracle Drug'. Now She's Got Heart Trouble.


When Wendy Lanski tested positive for COVID-19 in March, her doctors did what many physicians recommended. They prescribed her hydroxychloroquine and an antibiotic. Lanski has finally recovered from the disease, but now she’s on a heart monitor for a rapid heart rate that developed soon after she left the hospital.

“I've asked every doctor under the sun—pulmonary cardiologists, internists—is it the COVID or is it the drug? And you know, nobody knows the answer.”

In Lanski’s specific case, she might not ever know what’s behind her recent heart troubles. But for everyone else worried about whether or not it makes sense to risk taking the drug, there’s increasing clarity. A new study from The Lancet of COVID-19 patients who were prescribed hydroxychloroquine shows an increased risk of death and cardiac troubles, and no improvement from the symptoms of COVID-19.

What did she have to lose?

#WearAMask - new study shows speaking can spread Covid-19 indoors

The airborne lifetime of small speech droplets and their potential importance in SARS-CoV-2 transmission


Speech droplets generated by asymptomatic carriers of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) are increasingly considered to be a likely mode of disease transmission. Highly sensitive laser light scattering observations have revealed that loud speech can emit thousands of oral fluid droplets per second. In a closed, stagnant air environment, they disappear from the window of view with time constants in the range of 8 to 14 min, which corresponds to droplet nuclei of ca. 4 μm diameter, or 12- to 21-μm droplets prior to dehydration. These observations confirm that there is a substantial probability that normal speaking causes airborne virus transmission in confined environments.

Masks. They’re for YOU and ME

Wow! Twitler's tweet about MI absentee ballots was DELETED!
