Have Any Of The 1/6 Insurrectionist's Committed Suicide?....

Four of the police that protected the Capitol that day have now committed suicide. And for what? Really, really sad!!!

Has Anyone Point Blank Asked Mark Meadows Or TFG Directly About The Cabinet Meeting?.....

What do you mean you were holding a Cabinet Meeting? What do you mean you attended a Bedminster Cabinet Meeting?.

Your not prez anymore. He's not prez anymore.

What the hell are you talking about - a Cabinet Meeting?

Who else is in this so-called cabinet?

Are you delusional? Are you just humoring TFG?

Are you making plans for another insurrection?

What's up???

We Hear Of Breakthrough Infections Of Vaccinated People With The Delta Variant. They Say.....

that because one is vaccinated - that they won't get violently sick, won't go to the hospital and won't die.

That is in some way - comforting - BUT - what do we know about lingering and long term effects of this 'delta variant'?

I consider myself in the high risk group for Covid. I'll be 73 y/o by the end of this month with some other underlying conditions.

If I get a case of this now - what other effects might it have on my body that they really don't have any valid info on right now?

This is the reason why I've never let up with all the precautions taken to not get Covid in the first place, (i.e., masking; gloving; wearing eye protection; social distancing; washing hands; sanitizing; getting vaccinated; etc).

Last year was one hell of a year. We had to do all that without the aid of a vaccine. This time it's different. It's not Covid that could kill us - but all of the irresponsible people that didn't get vaccinated and those that refuse to wear masks.

They could kill me now.

It Really Scares Me That There Are Americans Plotting To Overthrow Our Democracy....

and a lot of them are in government or have worked in government.

What's with this so called 'cabinet meeting with TFG' that Meadows was talking a about?

What about the meetings and planning that went on before that led to the 1/6 insurrection?

What about all the changing of history about this insurrection? What we saw in real time is not what happened. These were tourists not terrorists.

Sure - tourists always travel with 'bear spray'. (sarcasm)

What is really going on behind the scenes?

Why are they trying to bring us down? Don't they realize that they, their families, friends, colleagues will have to deal with the aftermath that they create?

IMHO - The Biggest Issue Surrounding Covid Protection Precautions Is.....

the fact that - we have 50 states and each state is creating their own rules.

It's no wonder that people are confused and fed-up with this.

This pandemic is hitting all of us and in my opinion - the U.S. Government should lay down the rules and make each state comply to them.

I think we dropped the ball on this pandemic by not having a U.S. set of rules for dealing with it.

I hope that they learned from this one - and the next pandemic is coordinated out of Washington D.C. with one set of rules for the whole country and not 50 different sets.

NOTE: I had to run some errands and just came home from them. I went to 3 stores and was surprised that the majority of the people shopping were not wearing a mask.

I don't know if they just aren't tuned into what is going on with the 'delta variant' cause I don't think they realize the seriousness of this variant.

I actually am beginning to feel sorry for these non-maskers. There's going to be a lot of sick and dying people soon - if they ignore the warnings put out by the CDC. This 'delta variant' is really dangerous and I don't think people are treating it as such.

Has Anyone Here Been To Lalapalooza - I Want To Know How Careful They Are.....

in checking 'proof of vaccine' cards and Covid test results.

With 100,000 people attending - I just don't believe that they are taking the time to really do a thorough investigation of these items.

Also - who is doing the checking?

Pro-Life or Pro-Choice.....

What's your mask argument here? What's your vaccination argument here?

What's your abortion argument here?

Are they consistent? Or are you hypocritical?

This is what should be asked about those Repugs that are being babies about wearing a mask or being vaccinated.

The Repugs always point to Dems being political and using politics.

The Repugs are always the first to make any issue - political.

Lalapolooza In Chicago - A Super Spreader?.....

Have we not learned anything over the last year since this pandemic started?

Come-on people - we weren't born yesterday.

They say they are taking all these precautions in Chicago to protect the crowd.

Yes there will be the majority of the attendees doing what they should to protect themselves and others - BUT - we know that there will also be a substantial percentage of those attendees that will cheat the system.

Fake proof of vaccination cards are available in the Chicago Area. You can bet there will be a number of attendees that will be using those.

Also - the planners have no control as to what people do once they make it into the venue. A portion of those that walked into the venue with masks - will take them off once they are inside. There is no way for them to police the use of masks.

Holding this event - knowing what we know as to what is going on around the country with the spread of this 'delta variant' is just irresponsible.

I like Mayor Lightfoot - but she made a mistake by not cancelling or postponing this event.

This is all about money and greed. The planners of this event will say anything and risk anything to make sure that they maximize their profit.

I'm really surprised that many of the entertainers scheduled to appear at this event haven't cancelled their appearances.

This is an accident waiting to happen. I'm just amazed that we haven't learned anything over this last year about how this pandemic works.

Watch in the weeks to come - the cases, hospitalizations and deaths go up in the Chicago Area. It is so predictable.

Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda!!!

Does Anyone Think We Rushed Into Going Back To Normal For Memorial Day?.....

When many Covid restrictions were lifted to welcome in Memorial Day and the summer - I was skeptical. I thought we were rushing through to normalcy because people were getting antsy to get back to normal and businesses wanted to open to recover from their months of being down or running at 50% capacity.

July 4th wasn't too far away after that. All sorts of super spreader events held and people out in droves without masks, not social distancing and really not knowing who was vaccinated and who was not.

We were told the vaccinated didn't need to wear masks - but the non-vaccinated needed to wear their masks.

Now come on now. Do you trust anti-vaxxers to wear a mask.

Well - we knew of the threat of the 'delta variant' back then - but because it wasn't that prevalent in the U.S. - we threw caution to the wind.

And now we're getting back to where we started. Only this time - people have become more distrustful of the experts that are making the rules.

Why couldn't we just stay cautious at the start of summer and not open things up all the way like we did. We're paying for it now.

I wonder if the CDC had it to do over again - if they would have made a different decision?

There Was That Brief Moment On 1/6 When The Insurrectionists Orderly Walked Thru The.......

rope stanchions in Statuary Hall. This was at the very beginning of the riots and mayhem that ensued in and around that building that day.

What killed that moment for them was when a man, later identified as Adam Johnson of Florida, was seen carrying House Speaker Nancy Pelosiís lectern as a mob entered the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021 in Washington, DC..

It was clear from that moment on that - these were not just normal tourists checking out the Capitol.

This was just a blip of time in the unraveling of the destructive events of the day.

Anybody taking these early images and saying these were just tourists - is trying real hard to provide and excuse for this obvious insurrection and attempt at a coup to stop the certification of the election.
