If you're wondering what excuse the anti-vaxers have

now that a vaccine has full FDA approval, here's one from a wingnut website:

Approval doesn't make it safer, it just makes it easier for the government to force it on you.

And there we are.

Warp Speed indeed.

I just love that the vaccine that has been approved first is the one that didn't participate in Operation Warp Speed.

I hope George W. Bush

has started drinking again. I know if I was him I would have.

So, without going into a whole lot of detail,

All the younger people in my extended family are finally getting vaccinated since they and most of their children have gotten very sick, have lingering symptoms and one of them has been in the hospital for a month. It's gotten to a point where the few of us who haven't gotten sick are the ones who have been wearing masks for 18 months everywhere we go and have been vaccinated.

Probably just a coincidence.

The more diverse we are as a population,

the stronger we will be when we act as one.

That is all.

I look at it this way.

Joe Biden is the first President in history to do the right thing about Afghanistan. It may not be perfect, but it's in the right direction and it will look better as time goes on.

It's that simple.

A big Thank You

to whoever gifted me a Star membership. That was very kind.

Somehow I don't remember the press being so tough on Trump

when he pulled us out of Syria and abandoned our allies while handing over a US air base to the Russians. Does anybody else? All with no notice or negotiations, and no written deal that benefitted us in any way. Not that I've seen, anyway.

The way we killed Osama Bin Laden

is proof we didn't have to invade an entire country to do it.

August 15, 2021

It just dawned on me.

Ending the wars in the Middle East is the answer to the question "How are we going to pay for the infrastructure bills?"
