Trump is still playing armchair immunologist

He was on Maria Bartiromo trash talking the J&J pause as being a big mistake. He didn't mention the related AstraZeneca pause, but presumably that was a mistake too? What have you got to lose, right?

Thanks to him and his party we are on the precipice of having a glut of unused vaccines in this country, but there was no mention of that either.

He did boast about how great his response to Covid was, although by his own metric it was objectively not a "job well done".

Maria demonstrated why she gets these high-profile interviews with her sharp-edged comments: "Uh huh. Uh huh."

Originalist view on the Second Amendment

Originalism, in the context of the U.S. Constitution, is defined as a legal philosophy that the words should be interpreted as they were understood at the time they were written. This philosophy is espoused namely by Supreme Court justices Amy Coney Barrett and Clarence Thomas.

Liberals tend to shun this interpretation as it is perceived as an inflexible and regressive roadblock to the organic evolution of civil rights over time. However, there may be a silver lining here for the left. The right to bear arms has done that very thing, passively expanded and become significantly more momentous as firearm and ammunition technology has advanced. This demonstrably violates the very tenets of Originalism. To keep this power strictly aligned with the original intent, it should be limited to only 18th century firearm technology. This includes flintlocks, muzzleloaders, and muskets. Cartridges and magazines and repeating weapons came later and thus should not be covered without a Constitutional amendment.

What say ye Amy Coney Barrett?

WHAT!?! One in a million people suffer blood clots from the vaccine?!?

Morning routine of a hypochondriac during a pandemic

I think mild hypochondria runs in my family. Normally I have mine mostly in check, but the pandemic has pushed it into overload.

Here's how my day will probably start tomorrow:

6:00 am - Alarm goes off, temperature check and hit the shower. Hmm half a degree higher than yesterday.
6:15 am - Getting dressed. Do my feet look different? Are those covid toes?
6:30 am - Off to work. Better keep my speed in check lest I get pulled over by an anti-distancing police officer.
6:45 am - Mask up! I had to open three doors to get to my desk, better hit the hand sanitizer.
7:00 am - I'm the first in but I better sanitize my station for good measure.
7:15 am - Cough! Probably nothing. Cough! Hmm...is that scratchiness in my throat?
7:30 am - Guy in next office : Cough! I heard that...I wonder how much this air gets circulated.
7:45 am - This coffee lacks any taste. Zoinks! I better smell the beans. I guess I can smell that (hard to be sure).
8:00 am - Better check the Johns Hopkins website. Well none of that looks good.
8:15 am - Need to use the restroom. GAAAAAAHHHHH
8:30 am - OK that was harrowing. I need to drink less coffee and hold it longer. I can't taste this shit anyways.
8:45 am - Need to focus on work and not think about pandemic...need to focus on work and not think about pandemic...
