Trump is on a killing spree . . .

with his ass-cheeks-to-elbows super-spreader campaign rallies, and he truly doesn't care how many people he leaves dead in his wake, even if they happen to be his cult followers who, bizarrely, still love him.

If a number of people get food poisoning after eating at the same restaurant, the local health department has the authority to shut that restaurant down. WHY can't they shut down Trump's rallies when people are not wearing masks and not socially distancing?

Mark Meadows claims Trump was tested for Covid on Air Force One . . .

on his way to tonight's debate and that he tested negative. I heard this about a half hour ago on MSNBC.

Oh, really?! We should believe Mark Meadows? Are there any independent journalists and medical personnel who were on Air Force One today with Typhoid Trump who can attest to the fact that Trump was tested at all during his flight?

I know the Biden campaign is fully aware of the menace Trump could pose to Joe, but I still worry. They should demand to see the test results. Better yet, have Trump get a swab up the nose in front of everyone, right before the debate, and prove that he is testing negative.

And too bad if the person administering the test goes a little too far with the swab and accidentally scrambles what little brain matter exists beneath that thin, orange pelt on his head that he calls hair.

If Amy Coney Barrette is right and the Constitution should not be "updated," then . . .

I guess she would agree that all Amendments to the Constitution are unconstitutional and should be thrown out, including the 2nd Amendment (the right to keep and bear arms) and the 19th Amendment (the right of women to vote).

That seems to be what she's saying here:

Amy Coney Barrett on originalism: "That means that I interpret the Constitution as a law... I understand it to have the meaning that it had at the time people ratified it. That meaning doesn't change over time and it's not up to me to update it or infuse my policy views into it."

But when she says in this quote that she "interprets" the Constitution, wouldn't that suggest logically that its meaning is up to interpretation and that different people could interpret it in different ways?

If its meaning were all cut and dried, there would be no need for the Supreme Court at all. Everyone would understand exactly what it means. Wouldn't that be nice? No Supreme Court, no appellate courts, maybe even no lawyers!

Okay. I just gave myself a headache. Or added to the one I've had since 2016.

They should ask Barrett if she would ban research using stem-cells from human embryos and fetuses.

Regeneron, the miracle "cure" that Typhoid Trump is now raving about, was developed from fetal tissue.

From the Regeneron website:

Currently, there are limited research efforts
employing human-induced pluripotent stem cell lines derived from adult human cells and
human embryonic stem cells that are approved for research use by the National Institutes of
Health and created solely through in vitro fertilization.

Llamas to the rescue in fight against Covid!

Just felt the need to post some encouraging news:

Researchers have developed a synthetic molecule, inspired by naturally occurring "nanobodies" found in llamas and other camelids, that could possibly be effective in preventing Covid-19 infection.

It would be administered as a nasal spray, which they are calling "Aeronabs." It's not a vaccine, but rather, another way to help prevent the virus from entering the body through the nose, which seems to be its favored entry point. According to the article:

“Far more effective than wearable forms of personal protective equipment, we think of AeroNabs as a molecular form of PPE that could serve as an important stopgap until vaccines provide a more permanent solution to COVID-19,” said AeroNabs co-inventor Peter Walter, PhD, professor of biochemistry and biophysics at UCSF and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator.

Of course, it could still enter through the mucous membranes in a person's mouth or eyes, but this might provide some protection.

The article says they hope to begin human trials soon. Here is the article:
