Family says conservative radio host has changed his tune on vaccines after he was hospitalized with Covid-19   :crazy: :crazy:

https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/23/us/radio-host-vaccine-trnd/index.html   :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

For months, conservative Nashville, Tennessee-based radio host Phil Valentine has repeatedly made posts on multiple social media platforms telling his fans that if they weren't at risk for Covid-19, they shouldn't get the vaccine.

That message changed on July 23, when the Valentine family made a public statement on the Facebook page of his talk radio station's Facebook page.

"Phil contracted the Covid virus a little over a week ago and has since been hospitalized and is in very serious condition, suffering from Covid Pneumonia and the attendant side effects," the family statement reads, which emphasizes that Valentine has never been an anti-vaxxer. "(Phil) regrets not being more vehemently 'Pro-Vaccine' and looks forward to being able to more vigorously advocate that position as soon as he is back on the air, which we all hope will be soon."
It ends by urging listeners to continue praying for Valentine and to "PLEASE GO GET VACCINATED!"   :snicker :snicker :snicker

‘I’m sorry, but it’s too late’ Alabama doctor on treating unvaccinated, dying COVID patients  :tiptoe:

Dr. Brytney Cobia said Monday that all but one of her COVID patients in Alabama did not receive the vaccine. The vaccinated patient, she said, just needed a little oxygen and is expected to fully recover. Some of the others are dying.


“I’m admitting young healthy people to the hospital with very serious COVID infections,” wrote Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, in an emotional Facebook post Sunday. “One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine. I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late.”    :tiptoe: :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

Three COVID-19 vaccines have been widely available in Alabama for months now, yet the state is last in the nation in vaccination rate, with only 33.7 percent of the population fully vaccinated. COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations are surging yet again due to the more contagious Delta variant of the virus and Alabama’s low vaccination rate.

For the first year and a half of the pandemic, Cobia and hundreds of other Alabama physicians caring for critically ill COVID-19 patients worked themselves to the bone trying to save as many as possible.

“Back in 2020 and early 2021, when the vaccine wasn’t available, it was just tragedy after tragedy after tragedy,” Cobia told AL.com this week. “You know, so many people that did all the right things, and yet still came in, and were critically ill and died.”

Learn how to identify the ones in your home—and how “bait tacos” can banish them.

How to Get Rid of and Kill Cockroaches Safely

1. Prevent them from coming into your home in the first place.
Your best bet is to keep roaches far away to begin with. “If you don’t provide an environment they can establish in, then you’re unlikely to get them,” says O’Neal.

That means if you want to avoid getting cockroaches altogether, make sure you regularly clean out areas like your garage, basement, and attic where you might have old cardboard, books, clothes, or other things boxed up. Those types of environments prove perfect for cockroaches, who like to feel sheltered and secure.

You can also manage your environment by not providing a food source for cockroaches. That means not keeping out food or dirty plates, and having trash and recycling bins that are well-contained. (Plus, denying food sources will help kill off any potential invaders already in your home). Finally, put door sweeps under your doors so cockroaches don’t have easy way to get inside.

Politics / Most people don’t understand basic economics
« on: July 09, 2021, 01:42:47 PM »
I see the right wing media playing on Americans lack of knowledge of basic economics.   Now they are trying to blame gas price increases on Joe. 

SUPPLY AND DEMAND.

Gas prices dropped because demand dropped during coronavirus.

Gas prices are going up because Americans are use more gasoline.  Suppliers cut production and are in no hurry to ramp it up to meet the new demand, why should they, they are profiting as part of the growth in demand.

Look at your personal demand for gasoline now versus.  I filled up about once a month during coronavirus, versus once a week now.

Mississippi State AD reacts to racist slurs directed at Vanderbilt parents   :nono2: :no: :nono2:

https://247sports.com/Article/Mississippi-State-AD-reacts-racist-slurs-Vanderbilt-parents-baseball-College-World-Series-Omaha-167180131/

After Vanderbilt’s Game 1 victory over Mississippi State in the College World Series, ESPN’s Clinton Yates reported on Twitter that Vanderbilt student-athlete parents were subject to racist slurs from fans at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb. Vanderbilt athletic director Candice Storey Lee addressed those reports in a statement on Tuesday morning after the Monday night report.

The two teams face each other again on Tuesday night in Game 2 with Mississippi State looking to avoid elimination while Vandy looks to clinch a national title. Prior to Game 2 on Tuesday night, Mississippi State issued a response to the reports of racist slurs from unidentified fans.

Mississippi State athletic director John Cohen released a statement in regards to the incident.

“We join Vanderbilt in declaring such behavior unacceptable and in direct conflict with the values of both institutions and our fan bases,” Cohen said in a statement. “The College World Series serves as a celebration of the entire sport of college baseball. Highly inappropriate events must neither be tolerated nor allowed to detract from the on-the-field accomplishments of the student-athletes and their teams who have earned the right to participate on this national stage.”

‘Trump isn’t the dictator’: Wisconsin GOP inches away from Trump

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-isn-t-dictator-wisconsin-112430292.html

WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. — It could have upended the Wisconsin Republican Party’s annual convention, given Donald Trump’s hold on the GOP. Just as the state party gathered this past weekend, Trump issued a statement tearing into the state Assembly speaker, Robin Vos, and two other Republican lawmakers for doing too little to promote his election conspiracies.

But in a rare setback for his post-presidential interventions in the GOP, Trump in Wisconsin appeared to shoot a blank. When Vos and Devin LeMahieu, the state’s Senate majority leader, took the stage on Saturday in front of some of the party’s most fervent pro-Trump activists, it was as though Trump had said nothing at all. There were no boos. Vos drew applause. Convention-goers dismissed an effort to censure him.

In Wisconsin at least, Trump failed to set off the same intra-party chaos that has marked his efforts elsewhere. Worse for him, despite the former president’s harsh personal criticism, there were signs his comments were dismissed with a roll of the eyes.

French police are searching for a woman who caused a massive crash during Saturday’s leg of the Tour de France and fear she may have fled the country.

The woman, who was wearing a green hat, glasses, red-and-white stripe shirt, yellow raincoat and jeans, has not been seen since Saturday, having escaped the chaotic scene after causing a crash during Stage One of the race after stepping onto the road to wave a sign reading “Allez Opi-Omi!,” a greeting to her grandparents, as the cyclists zoomed past, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.

Former Attorney General Bill Barr on Trump's election fraud claims: "It was all bullsh*t"   :o ::) :lol:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/former-attorney-general-bill-barr-124743756.html

Former Attorney General Bill Barr said the Justice Department always knew Trump's claims of election fraud were "bullsh*t," according to an excerpt from journalist Jonathan Karl's upcoming book published in the The Atlantic.

Why it matters: Barr's new comments come as Trump continues to propagate the lie that the 2020 election was "rigged." Republicans in swing states now are conducting "audits" of election ballots based on false conspiracies about the election.

Flashback: Last December, Barr told the AP: "To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election."

That comment infuriated then-President Trump, Barr told the Atlantic. “How the f*ck could you do this to me? Why did you say it?” Trump asked Barr. Barr responded that he said it because it was true.

“You must hate Trump. You must hate Trump," Trump said, referring to himself in the 3rd person, according to Barr.

Dunking on a political opponent is one of the most effective ways to go viral, a study of almost 3 million social-media posts suggests

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/dunking-on-a-political-opponent-is-one-of-the-most-effective-ways-to-go-viral-a-study-of-almost-3-million-social-media-posts-suggests/ar-AALv4rd?li=BBnb7Kz

Congress members who hurl insults at opponents online get better engagement, a study shows.

Cambridge and NYU studied 2.7 million tweets and Facebook posts from Congress.

Mentioning "Leftist' or "Biden" increased the odds of posts being shared by 67%, for example.


Hurling insults across the aisle on Capitol Hill may not lead to legislative results but it helps politicians stand out on social media, new research suggests.

Researchers at the University of Cambridge and New York University studied more than 2.7 million Twitter and Facebook posts from members of congress.

They found that posts mentioning political opponents - an "out-group" - led to higher engagement.

Trump Aides Prepped Insurrection Act Order Amid Protests  :nono2: :nono2: :nono2:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-aides-prepped-insurrection-act-order-amid-protests/ar-AALsqwH?li=BBnb7Kz

Responding to interest from President Donald J. Trump, White House aides drafted a proclamation last year to invoke the Insurrection Act in case Mr. Trump moved to take the extraordinary step of deploying active-duty troops in Washington to quell the protests that followed the killing of George Floyd, two senior Trump administration officials said.

The aides drafted the proclamation on June 1, 2020, during a heated debate inside the administration over how to respond to the protests. Mr. Trump, enraged by the demonstrations, had told the attorney general, William P. Barr, the defense secretary, Mark T. Esper, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of staff, Gen. Mark A. Milley, that he wanted thousands of active-duty troops on the streets of the nation’s capital, one of the officials said.

Mr. Trump was talked out of the plan by the three officials. But a separate group of White House staff members wanted to leave open the option for Mr. Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act to call in the military.

Pro-Impeachment GOP Rep Targeted by Trump Revenge Rally Just Formed Joint Funding Venture with Liz Cheney

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/pro-impeachment-gop-rep-targeted-by-trump-revenge-rally-just-formed-joint-funding-venture-with-liz-cheney/ar-AALtL3K?li=BBnb7Kz

Ohio Republican Anthony Gozalez and Wyoming [checks latest updates] still-Republican Liz Cheney have formed a joint fundraising committee ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

The two Donald Trump foils have joined together for fundraising, according to an aide, because “some donors wanted to write checks to both of them,” and this is a way to do that.

That aide is right that funds have rolling in for Republicans who are on the outs with the Trump party. By April it was already clear big dollars were headed to the pro-impeach, anti-rally crowd. Which is certainly one of the reasons the ex-president will be doing political rallies once more.

Tonight, Trump is holding a big one in Cleveland. Big, in the sense of the importance to determining how the primaries are going to go down in the GOP. It remains to be seen if it will be big in the “Trump points to the crowd and claims the media will never show video of many of you are here” sense of big.

14 House GOP members just revealed themselves as modern segregationists

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/14-house-gop-members-just-revealed-themselves-as-modern-segregationists/ar-AALv4mE?li=BBnb7Kz

Despite passing unanimously in the Senate, 14 House Republicans voted against the bill to make Juneteenth a national holiday.

Their reasoning was terrible and and at the core revealed something simple: they don't support Black people.

The 14 are modern segregationists and should be considered as such.

This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author.

Earlier this month, President Joe Biden signed a bill proclaiming Juneteenth, a day celebrating the end of slavery, as a federal holiday. That bill had been unanimously passed by the Senate and passed the House 415 to 14. It was a rare moment of bipartisanship on Capitol Hill for everyone but those 14 Representatives, all Republican, who voted against it.

The 14 are a veritable who's who of the most objectionable names in Congress. They represent the cutting edge of those who want to return America to the worst parts of its past. These 14 come from a long tradition of legislators standing in the way of justice and progress. In the 1950's they would've stood in the way of integrated schools. In the 1960's they would've voted against civil rights. They are today's George Wallaces.
