Rudy G got the 'rona. Admitted to G'town Hospital receiving the best care and treatment I'm sure. Took no precautions, has been traveling unrestricted, endangering countless others and now gets access to some of the best treatment and healthcare professionals. They should've turned him away.

Don’t worry, the treatments aren’t great anyway. The fancy treatment Trump got does not save a life (if he really even had COVID, I don’t believe he did). The only thing proven to reduce death in severe cases only is Dexamethasone, which is cheap and widely available.

Did you also read how Trump declined to buy more than 50M total vaccines from Pfizer? So now other countries are in line ahead of us and they can't provide more than 50M prior to next summer? What kind of idiot (or maniac) only buys enough vaccine for 15% of their population?

That was an interesting story. I watched the video she posted where the cops busted into her house and waved their guns around when there were kids in the house. Blech. Was she violating any law by posting that data? Was she leaking private information or something? Or were these cops just being bullies?

I guess we will have to get the warrant and see. Because if she was doing something illegal, she has been doing it for months and months and it seems strange to go after her now. DeSantis might have just been waiting until after the election was done so he didn't drum up any negative press ahead of it.

I believe the issue was they thought she hacked into the emergency alert system and sent a message out.

I’m sure they are attuned to those frequencies.

To be fair, I think even most Republicans would agree that those two women are loons. Lack of "vibrational frequency" is not a mainstream GOP argument about COVID.

More "...because I'm an American" bullshit:
A Republican congressman from Colorado announced he would not be taking the coronavirus vaccine because he’s “an American”, a statement that’s sparked controversy among officials.

“I will not be taking the vaccine,” he told Fox News host Neil Caputo. “I’m an American. I have the freedom to decide if I’m going to take a vaccine or not and in this case I am not going to take the vaccine. I’m more concerned about the safety of the vaccine than I am the side effects of the disease.”
And about the vaccine:

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/covid-19 ... 03934.html
But U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said more work needs to be done to encourage confidence in the vaccine and ensure greater uptake once it’s widely available — especially as the anti-vaccine movement continues to spread false information.

“My message is that it's okay to have questions. It's not okay, it is absolutely not okay, to let misinformation and to let people spreading misinformation, rule your life and cause you to make bad choices,” Adams told Yahoo Finance.

This is what happens when a major political party actively spreads lies and convinces their supporters that facts are not facts and not to trust experts. Why would a political party advocate for non-politicians to lead their party? I mean, the Pilots Union don't actively campaign for an actor or bartender or football player to be their president.

I went to Walmart yesterday and about 10% of the people didn’t have masks on. All white males between 18- 40. My wife asks an employee why they weren’t enforcing masks and they said because people react violently to that and it’s just not worth the trouble.
