See? I knew that religion would be the death of us all. If you think you’re protected somehow, despite all reality, you will drop your guard at the first opportunity, because something has your back.

yes. mine is more like the invisible force that “creates, organizes, and destroys.” lots of people forget about the destroy part

yoga teacher said the quote once and i immediately incorporated into my divine energy or whatever it us that i have no name for. or many names for.

Unhelpful, imo.

There’s so much division, I wonder if at least some of it is orchestrated. I honestly thought your typical lefty was too smart to be manipulated into becoming a tool for the elites on the one side and/or sidelined on the other side.

(and I’m sorry if my words sound overly cryptic, but I don’t want to add to the mess)

Twit(ter) is a bad illiterate joke.

polarbear4

just realized the above post is sarcasm. i, too, am saddened. it’s like the old FTV rift and i do my best not to take sides, although i will like the occasional tweet that pushes back for nina.

i am honestly shocked. nina should be benefitting from an all out tweet storm and it makes me mad how people are behaving.

tbh, a lot of people are very controlling, and if a progressive doesn’t do things exactly how they say it should be done, they spew all kinds of vile.

i understand there are real issues, like when AOC hedges on Venezuela and Cuba, but i don’t see how a progressive goes out of their way to hurt Nina.

Family says conservative radio host has changed his tune on vaccines after he was hospitalized with Covid-19

For months, conservative Nashville, Tennessee-based radio host Phil Valentine has repeatedly made posts on multiple social media platforms telling his fans that if they weren’t at risk for Covid-19, they shouldn’t get the vaccine.

That message changed on July 23, when the Valentine family made a public statement on the Facebook page of his talk radio station’s Facebook page.

He now has covid pneumonia and is in serious condition in the hospital and the family statement ends with, “PLEASE GO GET VACCINATED!”.

Three months ago, Valentine even tried to draw comparisons between hospital workers who had to indicate their Covid-19 vaccination status on their work ID badges with Jews forced to wear yellow stars in Nazi Germany. That vaccination status indication on hospital worker IDs is common and is made for other vaccines, including the seasonal flu.

My NC country best friend texted that she is so over her only son and his girlfriend. She texted that it is not all bad to be a redneck, but to be aggressively stupid with it? Unfortunately, the two bozos have plenty of company. 💩😖

Sounds like rural WI- Cult -45 territory, anti mask and vax and the N word is still used with some regularity in bars. Its like stepping into the twilight zone of some type.

polarbear4

oregon cannot require proof of vax from health care workers.

Oregon law prohibits mandating health care workers, emergency services to vaccinate

magsview

Wow. At work we must be vaccinated but it’s scout’s honor so far, I haven’t had to show proof.

Benny

I have to show proof and have already provided it. I’m certain there were HiPPa considerations, but I don’t mind it. However, I think there is going to be some additional mask wearing if the Delta variant is in an outbreak in my community.

Reminds me of a article about UFOs observing the US and Russia’s first nuke tests i can just imagine what they thought ” Oh shit the kids have found the matches”

When I think along those lines, UFOs observing us from space, I usually picture them sadly shaking their heads.

Yea they fall between Treks general order 4 and 7

Jonathan Swift didn’t call human bipeds ‘yahoos’ for nothing. Our species is that simple and stupid.

Not all of us but a vast majority

she has a handy list of what is myth and what is fact.

It only took Wi’s GQP nut job 12 years to say something intelligent;

US Sen. Ron Johnson: ‘I may not be the best candidate’ for 2022.

So…I checked in on Olympics news just now..

Athletes under pressure as they contend with “spiking temperatures” and “oppressive’ humidity”

“Very tough,” Djokovic said of the conditions. “Today, from also speaking to the other players, it was the hottest day so far.

“Humidity is brutal, because it’s very hot and also very humid, so the hard courts absorb the heat, and it stays trapped in there. Not much wind, not much breeze.

Medvedev:

“It was some of the worst (heat) I’ve ever had”
“It was unbelievably hot”

Men’s (cycling) Road Race:

‘The riders’..’had to content with the sweltering heat’

But there’s some more lighthearted news too, like my new favorite pole vaulter, a plucky Brit named Harry Coppell, who is NOT going to let some “messed up” teeth get to him after his pole landed on his face.

Given how painful the accident looked, the British pole vaulter sounded in remarkably good spirits on Saturday, telling CNN: “I was lucky that I got to see a few of the dentists in the Olympic village.

“Unfortunately, [they] had to remove one of my teeth because it was fractured near the root but [I] should have some type of retainer in for the comp!

Harry unabashedly shows off his messed up teeth here.

And twitter is having some silly fun with Sue Bird’s mom’s boyfriend Harry Dank, lol, you can’t be serious all the time! 😉

I’m not sure that Harry is on the same level as Bernie, but I think neither of them was expecting so much attention.

Not even an American. He’s South African.
