everyone here thinks the jeopardy thing is stupid.

related point...if it wasn't obvious, shaf, NAN and KC are not considered MAGA mutants by people here (I don't think). as abhorrent as i find your political and social beliefs, you aren't in the same category as the median GOP voter.
Hey man, I posted my political compass a little while back... I was literally one dot from the center :lol:

I took it eight years ago and I was moderately into the Auth Right section so... :meowshrug: Who knows. It did surprise me though, I'm not as LibRight as I thought

What is the purpose of this?

The point is to arm his followers with more reasons to be anti-vax without just coming out and saying it.

I saw one study that looked at COVID vaccines for pregnant women making its rounds among the antivax MAGA hillbillies (I don't have a better word for them... they're the white, lower class, Gun and god loving, I ain't wearing no mask people). The study showed that for vaccinated people about 1/4 of the pregnancies had issues like miscarriages, birth defects, and other complications. "SEE WHAT THE VACCINE DOES?!?!!" Oh... until you read the whole story and see that the numbers fall right in line with the typical percent of pregnancy problems.

Now, I'm not saying the menstrual cycle isn't affected. Seems pretty clear there's something there; however, I'd be willing to bet a few things: 1. COVID-19 the disease does something similar if not worse. 2. Not every menstrual cycle is the same in non-pandemic times and can be affected by stress, diet, disease (colds/flu) and other things as well. 3. It probably goes back to "normal" in the coming months after the vaccine is administered.

But what do I know... I don't have a uterus or ovaries. Paging @obhave .

I just don't understand why he's devoting his show to that, just outright feeding the "don't get the vaccine" train.

There's not going to be any post-covid life. Covid is going to be a thing we deal with in perpetuity, and we'll just have to keep getting vaccinated every year.

The room is small so the photographer used a wide-angle lens that distorted the Biden's.

Did anyone else just recently get the notice from the Treasury about stimulus? It was deposited in my checking account like a month ago, but I just got the letter from Joe a few days ago.

I get that you (and me and most people) think his shtick is stupid but you can't seriously wonder why he's doing it. Can you?

I got my letter last Thursday. Signed by the B man himself.

I am apparently getting an important letter in the mail today from Kevin McCarthy about election/voting integrity.

I too got the letter. We gave it to my daughter and told her it was from Joe Biden. She threw it on the floor and asked if we could watch PJ Masks... Seems like an appropriate response.

Apparently some Trump appointee at the Social Security office was holding information from the treasury, so SSN recipients that don't have direct deposit didn't, until recently, get their stimulus check.

I guess it's just general confusion about why vaccines are political. Is it just a matter of identifying correlations? If I tell these idiots what they want to hear, they'll watch my show?

Literally anything that can create dueling factions is fine for the Republican Party. It’s a long running tool of distraction, which makes their rube voters think that a bunch of guys who went to Harvard are as stupid as they are - which is endearing and creates a team mentality.

I got my Trump letter for the 2nd one about 3 weeks ago and got my Biden one this past week.

This. COVID is never going away. It's a part of the legion of viruses out there. But we can control the impact it has on us. Just get a stupid shot (obviously there are outliers that can't due to true medical reasons).

At some point though we'll go back to "normal". And at that point, it's on those people that aren't vaccinated if they unfortunately get COVID and have it so bad they die.
