KE: I can respect your political beliefs, but unless you lock yourself into quarantine for the next 50 years, or you carry an abnormal amount of antibodies, you WILL get Covid-19. It is not going away. Even those of us with booster shots are not 100% immune, although I should escape hospitalization and death. You, however can also transmit the virus even if you are asymptomatic. It is akin to having unprotected sex when you know you have a STD. That turns you into the grim reaper and a potential hospital bed stealer from someone who is more responsible. Please be kind to and respectful of others. Dying from Covid is one of the most horrendous and unnecessary ways to die.
Is she what people refer to as a “Karen”?
Wrong. Mr. McConnell wants to trim the massive socialistic expansion plans — cutting the proposed new extravagant entitlements. Not to those programs that exist today. you may need to balance your news sources.
Can we just wish he wasn’t?
Name one Republican who wants to cut SS. There is a major difference between the Dems (as quoted above) wanting to expand social security to entire families in the form of myriad entitlements and the Repubs maintaining a SS program as currently defined without the driving the program into bankruptcy. And, yes, I truly appreciate receiving my SS check every month — along with the COLA increase. But it barely covers the 2022 increase in Medicare payments.
The Dr also described how the addicted patient was against the Covid vaccine because he did not know what was in it while he had no problem injecting street drugs which he had no knowledge of what was in those syringes.
A well respected Dr. described yesterday a comparison of how the FB algorithms fed anti-vax and anti-govt “news” to one of his Oxy-addicted patients, vs. the pro-vax and pro-govt “news” he was simultaneously presented by FB. It is all in the algorithms.
Is inflation a problem when it surpasses 20%? Most Americans thought so in 1980s. Maybe you were too young to remember. Or not trying to buy a house or car back then. Rampant inflation above 6% does cause concern. Especially if trillions more “free” money is given out before there is product supply to balance against demand.
Entitlements pump free money into the economy. Supply cannot keep up with trillions of dollars of buying demand. Prices go up and inflation goes up. Remember back in 1981 when inflation was over 20%? President Carter’s administration was spending our money like crazy. Those were challenging times for the housing market.
There are many kinds of humor. This cartoon is a bit sarcastic, quippy, dry, and maybe too highbrow for some. It is metaphorically representing our current gluttonous spending behavior which is currently clogging several points in the supply chain. It is a sorry, sad and self deprecating depiction of what happens when the government gives away trillions of dollars to spend. No candy for Halloween. Get it? It is a joke.
