thanx to Nevilledog for posting this 1st.

BTW that air lift/evacuation will go down in history as great operation. Joe B. along with the US Military, our
allies, and some commercial airlines pulled it off flawlessly. At its peak every 22 minutes a plane was taking
off loaded with people.

An alligator attacked a Louisiana man in an area flooded by Ida.



A Louisiana man was missing and presumed dead after an alligator attacked him on Monday in an area that was flooded during Hurricane Ida, the authorities said.

A woman said that at about noon on Monday, her 71-year-old husband was attacked by an alligator while walking in knee-high floodwaters at their home in the city of Slidell, about 30 miles northeast of New Orleans on the north side of Lake Pontchartrain, according to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Capt. Lance Vitter of the Sheriff’s Office said the man had gone to check on his belongings in a storage area below the house.

The woman, whose name was not released, told deputies that she was inside her home when she heard a commotion and splashing. When she went outside, she saw a large alligator attacking her husband, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Does something in the woman's story strike you as a little odd? Click on link.

Dr. Mike* (Osterholm) on Morning Joe this am. "Either get vaccinated or the virus will find you."

He was a blunt as he could be saying the virus doesn't care about your race, age, income, and so on because
everybody in America has a choice get the vaccine or you will get the disease.

Look, I know that Afghanistan was a 100% no win after Rummy let Osoma bin Laden walk @ Tora Bora ..

... but the idea that a Russian asset Donald J Trump let go Taliban fighters who in some
cases got paid $100,000 from Russia to kill American troops pisses me off and should piss
of any American who cares about his or her country.

Is it wrong that I (straight guy) have been wearing women's yoga pants?

My local grocery store had them on sale for $9.99 and they seemed kind of like
the work out/X-country ski pants type of thing that I have paid $80 to $120 for
from Patagonia, L.L. Bean, or Nike? I didn't get the flower pattern ones just a
basic black type.

I wear some shorts over the top of them to hide the woman doing her stretching
logo.

BTW I'm asking for a friend.

Trump to stage Alabama rally as state struggles with Covid surge aka "a super spreader event"


Donald Trump was due to stage a rally in Alabama on Saturday night, in a city that has declared a Covid emergency and in support of a congressman who both backed Trump’s attempt to overturn the election and this week sympathised with a man who threatened to blow up the US Capitol.

The former president will speak in Cullman, Alabama, in part in support of Mo Brooks’ bid for a US Senate seat.

Like other southern, Republican-run states, Alabama is struggling with a surge in cases of Covid-19 fueled by the contagious Delta variant. On Thursday, the city of Cullman declared a state of emergency.

In a statement on Saturday, Trump said he expected a “huge crowd and tremendous enthusiasm” as there was “much to discuss, mostly having to do with bringing our country back”. Local media reported that organisers expected about 40,000 to attend at York Farms. The former president was set to take the stage at 7pm local time.

Dr William Smith, chief medical officer for Cullman Regional, told CBS42: “We view this as a potential ‘super-spreader’ event, just like last week’s Rock the South that was [at the same location]. We’ve seen an increase in patients since that event last weekend and we’re concerned we could see the same impact.”

MyPillow store comes to Clintonville, but not all residents comfy with the idea (Columbus ,OH) ...

... my neighborhood.

Talk about being tone deaf. Clintonville is one of the most liberal neo leftest encampments in OH. Lots of progressive,
dog walking, educated, readers, who are radical socialists (we like parks, schools, and the environment), and we like to
have dinner parties with family, friends, neighbors, and GLBT folk. In my areas of Clintonville you can't through a dead
cat with out hitting a lesbian and trust me lesbians don't like getting hit with dead cats.

I predict a very warm welcome for the store and i hope Mr. Lindell shows up too.

We have some "different type of people" living here too.

Iceland is proof that C-19 vaccines work. The nation hasn't recorded a single virus death since May

Thanx to Yo_Mama_Been_Loggin for posting this yesterday.

Iceland is proof that COVID-19 vaccines work, a leading US expert said. Infections are at record
highs, but the nation hasn't recorded a single virus death since May.

The COVID-19 situation in Iceland is proof that vaccines work, a leading US infectious disease expert has said.

Iceland reported 2,847 new infections over the past month, mostly from the highly infectious Delta variant, and most in fully vaccinated people, according to official statistics. This is the highest number of new infections in a month since the start of the pandemic, but vaccines appear to be doing their job - the vast majority of new infections are mild at worst.

Of the 1,239 Icelanders that were recorded as having COVID-19 on Sunday, just 3% were in hospital, data showed.

The country hasn't recorded a single COVID-19 death since May 25, according to government statistics and Oxford University's Our World in Data.

***********

This new wave of infections and deaths in America is not because of the delta variation but because
we have a % of mouth breathing dumb asses who refuse to get vaccinated.

Grown ups are back. President Biden makes me proud.

Nice to hear Joe Biden's clear and to the point talk about Afghanistan.
