A little surprised I’m the only J and J. While on the subject, will anyone be getting a booster if they come out and say it’s necessary? Definitely a no for me.
i think not honestly. maybe when the time comes my perception will be changed, but with the over-politicizing of this thing i'm more and more of the belief that our legislators will never stop their BS narratives and the data would have to be overwhelming to get me on board. right now data doesn't match the discussion.
how bout you mind your own fucking business.

I had to wear masks on an airplane recently and it sucked.
It's their right to require it. You could have always refused the service and jumped off!
(for CC: *should of)
The only reason someone doesn't have a vaccine now is that they don't want it. Lack of access is BS. I would bet if you can't get out to get it, there are multiple services that will come and give it to you.
If someone doesn't want it, that's their business. But I am sick of the Faucis of the world influencing restriction on all of us in order to protect people that clearly don't want the protection. I wish we could quit talking about Covid.
Trump didn't help the pandemic and he didn't develop a vaccine. Biden hasn't helped the pandemic, had nothing to do with getting the vaccine out and hasn't a clue what to do going forward. Covid doesn't give a fuck about US politics and will run whatever course it's going to run. Let's move on with our lives.

Yes, get vaccinated. Because, what is it like 99% of the deaths are unvaccinated. Yeah, I know we won't get to great vaccination rates anytime soon because of people being stupid, but also people not having access or the ability to get it.
There is a large portion of the population that have a very good chance of not having serious reactions to the virus. Of those, there is a ~50% subset who have a low risk of a VERY serious side effect from the vaccines. My son falls into this group. He will not be vaccinated and even though it's my choice and opinion that he not be vaccinated, his Cardiologist is the one who told me that he is in no circumstance to get this vaccine until the medical community can determine the exact cause of the myocarditis issues and they understand the long term risk of it to someone with major heart problems like my son's.
So to my son "get his shit together" means wear a mask when he can't eliminate the risk of close contact. We are fine with that.

And also like a normal freedom loving human you knew that it was their private business decision to maintain a mask policy.
fucking bingo. true freedom includes freedom to do things you disagree with. personally i hate masks, refuse to wear one in almost anything i do. however if a business chooses to require one, and i value the business and it's freedom, i comply to keep them in business.
the evangelizing of our country is a huge fucking deterrent for me. it started with pushing back on gay marriage, black people being able to attend school with white folks, abortion and now it's progressed to masks, vaccines etc. i really am considering a move to europe just to get better versions of the socialized BS of what's inevitably going to get enacted here in the US. i'm a republican, i hate that we are socializing more and more of our society, but i honestly feel like some of it is necessary and needs done better than what we have done (and frankly what we can do, with our representatives focused on personal gain more than global good, which is apparent if you pay attention).

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.

Can't require IDs to vote, though...

bitcoin seems to be weathering the storm of this chinese crackdown way better than the others (particularly, the 2 cryptos i'm in) but china essentially forcing their citizens into the electronic yuan can't be a great bit of news, or am i out of the loop?

I did a brisket over the weekend. One of my best ever. I really get frustrated with brisket because i do it the same every damn time and get wildly different results. I honestly think when you do a brisket it's 70% how good the beef is you're using and the rest is what you control. Either way, good times.
I also smoked lobster tails a few months ago and made lobster mac and cheese with them (which i also baked on the pellet smoker). that was a great dish also if you are into that.

What a day on saturday! scary shit with Eriksen, especially for me with my son just starting to elevate into more competitive play and his existing heart condition that really hit home. Follow that up with the Belgian team ripping the shit out of the Russians who refused to take the knee.
Spain and Sweden today is a nice little appetizer to get us ready for the France vs Germany game tomorrow. Kind of weird thinking that the WC is next year and this tournament is 1 year delayed but it's exciting stuff.

not to mention the fact that El Salvador and Panama (2 failed states with crime being 20%+ of their GDP) have adopted or at least talked about adopting Bitcoin as their currency. That is not a plus for me.
