  1. 100% of every single person proudly and unequivocally proclaiming it was a lab leak and it's China's fault believe it is an engineered virus
  2. The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2 | Nature Medicine WWW.NATURE.COM Don't get science news from nonscience opeds
  3. Making government an agent of change rather than a mechanism to voice grievance and prevent "the other side" from governing is a good thing. Like believe me I get that our system of governance is not made for change but to preserve the status quo crystallized in amber but if there is no mechanism for change through the ballot box, there is only one solution and folks, no one will like it.
  4. Gnd wasn't on the table. Voting rights and civil rights acts aren't gonna pass under the 60 vote threshold. Hell, infrastructure may not pass (imo may only do so under 50 vote threshold with 3-4 Republicans max on board) Even the popular yet stretch items like a public option or MJ legalization are definitely off the table given a 60 vote threshold. There's a ton of items that could make lives better and (more importantly) are popular but will never ever ever pass under the 60 vote rule. Fuck the whole "if you pass things there may be a backlash"
  5. Yep. And my hedge trimmer and pole saw. I've got a very overgrown yard that needs taming still. Might just hire some goats a couple of times
  6. Electric mowers are the way. It works for my half acre
  7. The joke was homer being too cavalier for the NRA but nowadays he'd be celebrated as a hero
  8. Yeah. And poorer people are less likely to have money down for purchasing a home, so new homes for purchase don't directly help those with lower incomes. And without specific programs to attract and maintain rent properties for lower income folks, rents will go at the market price which doesn't care how poor or cost burdened you are. The point I've made before is that building more housing via the market doesn't solve all of the problems, but it makes it more affordable for middle income folks (which is probably why it generates the most attention) so you need specific help for low
  9. Inside India’s ‘black fungus’ wards: Delta variant linked to hundreds of deaths from mucormycosis WWW.TELEGRAPH.CO.UK terrifying
  10. oh my fucking god dude. After my wife gives birth I'll go back to wearing masks in places I have stopped doing so unless I know everyone is vaccinated. It's not worth the risk! Even minor fevers in newborns can result in a trip to the ER and a spinal tap to check for meningitis. I don't want that at all, let alone covid!
