We keep wringing our hands and clutching our pearls about so many of our social problems seeming not to know what to do about them. If you trace the causes of vaccine refusal, you eventually get to the root of so many of our problems, Republican refusal to govern at the federal, state, or local level and active sabotage of social services.

We’re seeing MAGA Nation acting crazier and crazier with them taking ivermectin, avoiding the ICU’s, and nebulizing hydrogen peroxide to treat #COVID19 and even though the AZ fraudit found the election to be legitimate, they still believe it had fraud and the election was stolen. What’s the end game here? What do other hysterias have to teach us about how this one will end?

Reading time: 1 minute
Can we all agree on two things:
(1) All real live Americans are guaranteed Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness; and
(2) Getting, but especially dying of, the covfefevirus would deprive us of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness; and
(3) No one has a greater right to Life Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness than anyone else. We are all equal in that way.
So, wearing a mask helps us preserve the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights, n’est-ce pas?

And won’t we all go out and buy stocks again? If not that, let him give the rest of the budget to the billionaire class? It would really help him a lot.

Even the Repubes seem to believe that Congress should mandate the amount spent, where it comes from, and how it’s spent. Do your part to keep them on the straight and narrow: Call your MoC!
