F*** Joe Biden!

When large sports crowds chant an obscenity to the president, you know the magisterial bloom is off the White House rose.

“Today, the economy is in chaos, supply chains have been disrupted, inflation is soaring, race relations are poisonous, crime including murder is way up, the energy business is assaulted on all fronts even as the industrialized nations face the prospect of a winter without reliable power….

“And yet the befuddled Biden’s principal concern is forcing a thoroughly anti-American, unconstitutional series of vaccination ‘mandates’ on the American work force that has—thankfully—finally brought the country to its boiling point.

“Let’s go, Brandon!”

Irish democracy at its finest.

Unvaxxed die

Lee, one of my OCS chums, has lost his daughter to the Wuhan virus, just a little over a month after her husband died of it. Neither were vaccinated. Both had co-morbidities. They leave two young daughters. Our hearts are broken.

Super Spreader?

Mr. Boy was home for the weekend to attend the Austin City Limits music festival at Zilker Park. He estimated that 100,000 others were there with him, shoulder to shoulder, some masked many not. He’s been vaxed with the Pfizer twice, so he wasn’t worried, but whether he should have been remains to be seen.

Pandemic on us?

On our government, anyway, as Dr. Doom (Fauci) is found out to have lied to Congress about our funding of the Chinese lab that made Covid 19—after the Afghanistan cut-and-run I’d believe anything bad about the feds.

Delta’s bright spot

[S]aid Robert Colgrove, interim chief of infectious diseases at Mount Auburn Hospital and an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School. “A welcome development is that totally vaccinated, frail older people with medical conditions — even among them we’re seeing very few hospitalizations, unlike in the first couple of pre-vaccine waves of the epidemic when there were just enormous amounts of very, very sick [elderly] people.”

But Lambda is on the way and there are more than a dozen other variants of potential concern.

The endless pandemic

Booster shots for the first world and not enough 1 and 2 series for the third world could mean an endless pandemic as the third world keeps covid alive and thriving. (As well as mutating.)

“…those that are left behind can actually drive the pandemic forward,” says WHO. “The virus will not go away in any way, shape or form and we will not find a way to live alongside the virus.”

Swell.

Drawing the black bean

Daughter and son-in-law of an OCS friend are in the hospital in Georgia with Covid 2. She’s not doing well and is facing a ventilator. The dreaded ventilator. Off of which most do not come before passing.

The black bean drawing is an old Texas saying that stems from the 1843 capture of some Texans and would be Texans who were fighting off a Mexico invasion of the then-Republic of Texas. Drawing a black bean meant they would be executed.
