    Just a friendly personal 'rona update. As of this week I've had over 2,000,000 customers come through my business since this all started and I spend 10ish hours a day interacting with them constantly. I've gone out to eat an estimated 160 or more times (3-4 times per week). I've had at least 15 gatherings at my house with 10+ people attending (Including about 50 people last 4th of July) with no one wearing a mask.

    As of this point I've not contracted 'rona nor has anyone in my family. Do I just have some sort of resistance to this thing? I haven't gotten the flu ever in my life either and have gotten the flu shot maybe 5 times. I've had strep a few times, but not the flu. I used to joke that I was a human pin cushion while in the Army getting some sort of shot seemingly monthly and they wouldn't really tell us what we were getting. Maybe I should donate my blood for research or something.

    Glad for you.
    I am sure there is something in your make up that protects you.
    Thank you for being willing to let scientists find out.
    I am afraid however it will take more than a few blood samples
    But I know you are willing to do whatever it takes .....
    . to help the rest of us out don'tcha know.:coolnana:

    LOL, I think blood is about as far as I'm willing to go. Even needles freak me out.

    I have continued to fly since last summer, visited hospitals approximately 200 times, 2 funerals, 2 weddings, went to Mexico and I workout at a crowded public gym nearly everyday. Still Covid free.

    There is one theory that says small exposures to the virus over time provides immunity. That could be happening.

    I wash my hands constantly and rarely pass a sanitizer box without hitting my hands. I also maintained proper levels of vitamin d.

    I do view the public cleaning their hands as a significant upside to this. I want mask requirements and social distancing rules to go away when this blows over, but I hope the commitment to hand washing, the presence of sanitizer boxes and things like that to stay. I don't want a government mandate on them, but I want people to just keep doing it. I kinda like that my elementary aged kid didn't give me the flu or a really bad cold this year like he has every other year he has been in school or preschool, and I'm sure the regular hand washing at school is a big factor in that.

    Proof that Microsoft and Bill Gates support Marina Ambromavic. When Marina gives "spirit cooking" fundraising dinners to guests like Gates and Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Obama, Biden, etc. It's extremely vile, disgusting what goes on. Anyway here is one of her art pieces:


    Sorry it's disturbing. But can you imagine what a "spirit cooking" dinner would be like? Our leaders are into this stuff. People need to know about this! We have to stop this! Seriously!

    Study: Trump likely cost the U.S. 400k excess Covid deaths

    Has anyone watched this video? No details were provided as to what could have been done differently. Why is that?

    The msnbc goofy looking guy mentioned Biden was different because he was rolling out the Trump vaccine! Are you serious?

    What are these details and is Biden adopting them? Folks are still dying.

    “A new study by an UCLA economist estimates that 400,000 people in this country died of Covid who could have been saved if Donald Trump and the Republican Party had implemented a more effective health strategy,” says Chris Hayes. “400,000 people who are dead who did not have to be.”

    Not one example was given. So is Biden responsible for 100k deaths under his watch? He had a whole year to prepare.

    By the way, I googled the UCLA study and can’t find it. Only msnbc is reporting a headline number without details. Another hoax?

    Again, where are the details and assumptions? If the recommendation was more lockdown, then good luck with that.

    Hayes actually said Biden was doing a better job than Trump because Biden is rolling out the vaccine. Does the stupidity not offend anyone? First Trump didn’t have the vaccine a year ago and Biden only has the vaccine because of Trump. How stupid do you have to be to listen to this crap? TDS is a terrible thing.

    I'll play the devil for you here. I think there's some presumption that effective measures would have led to about 100k deaths. He took many wrong turns. The last one being that he got the vaccine in secret without telling his followers to get the vaccine. Vaccine participation has never been so politicized. To quote a former president, Sad.

    They said that they would trust it IF scientists and Trump praised it. Not just Trump. Seems reasonable. The success of Operation Warp Speed is amazing. It's the only thing that the President promised that actually came through. Taxes? No. ACA replacement? [crickets chirping] Wall? A drop in the bucket. Mexico paying for it? Yeah, right. The tax cuts were going to lower the deficit? Survey says? XXX Coal jobs would increase? Not.

    People are right for being skeptical of his promises.

    Dude got the vaccine in a dark closet in the White House. He spoke about it 2 months later when it broke that he got it in the White House.

    This is stupid. To say you wouldn’t trust the vaccine if Trump approved it is asinine and the worst kind of political theater. As if he had approval authority, give me a break. And ok he got it early. Good Lord, had he announced it imagine the reaction from the loony left. And no way we get a vaccine out this quickly without ‘warp speed’, even God Fauci acknowledges that and is promoting the vaccine which, since we have a new administration in the White House, is suddenly wholly accepted. What a s*** storm of bull s***.
    oh yeah, and what are the other more effective measures that could have need taken? Total and complete lockdown? For what 6 months, 9 months? I think we’ve seen what that would do to society. It would not survive.

    Thanks. I’m not saying those are numbers that I support. I do think he harmed people by not aggressively pushing vaccines and by not getting it publicly. 35% would drink their urine if he told them to.

    Ever heard of Operation Warp Speed? It’s hard to take you blue dogs serious because you can’t give him credit for anything.

    it reminds me of the 80’s when East Texas was still dominated by blue dogs. My dad would ask his friends, “are you for gun control, higher taxes or abortion?” Response , “Hell no!”

    Who are you voting for? “ My granddad voted democrat so that’s what I do.”

    What makes the libs' analysis so flawed on this is if Trump performed so bad on Covid why are so many of the European nations as bad or perhaps worse off than we are. How is that explained?

    Well, that would require a media that might ask that very question, but they won't. Gutfeld may rant about it but no one cares because, well, Fox News.

    Warp Speed was an amazing success. Sadly, due to all of the failed promises (release taxes, a better ACA plan in two weeks, etc.) no one actually believed him. Who can blame them? He was the little boy who cried wolf.

    You forgot about Trump’s promise of world peace, bringing common sense to Libs, and calorie free ice cream.

    Sooner (no pun intended) or later each party needs to recognize the good with the bad. When Sleepy does something right, I’ll let you know.

    I believe it is settled science that Trump saved 360 million Americans.

    I would say he failed to promptly step in and have Democrat Governors, such as Cuomo and Whitmer, arrested for killing old folks by forcing nursing homes to accept Covid infected elderly. He also should have arrested Biden for trying to prevent his travel ban aimed at stopping foreigners from travelling to the U.S., Pelosi from trying to bring people together in Chinatown during the pandemic, and New York Mayor DeBlasio from begging people to "ride the subway and go to shows". The results in New York were not good. Let's blame Trump.

    I presume the CVS stores are getting their doses directly from the feds, thus not on this list.
