Re Covid, what you knew a few months ago is different now. Thank Delta variant and vaccines.

 The pandemic is changing. What we knew a year ago is different now. Here’s some of the latest. This disease is now driven by the unvaccinated population. The unvaccinated are a minority of the population, but they dominate both all illness and severe illness requiring hospitalization. An August 2021 study by the Centers for Disease Control of health care facilities in Los Angeles found that if you were unvaccinated, you were 5 times more likely to get the disease and 29 times more like...

Could CDC Research Be Pretext To Censor 2A Activism?

Could CDC Research Be Pretext To Censor 2A Activism? United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- The fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are back in the gun violence research business means that a threat that arguably eclipses Letitia James’s jihad against the NRA in terms of a potential existential threat to effective pro-Second Amendment activism exists. In fact, the clock could very well be ticking. One of the pretexts that Silicon Valley uses to censor are claims about “medical ...

Let’s do our part to end the COVID nightmare and get vaccinated

The COVID-19 vaccinations have unfortunately become the latest dividing line in our nation’s culture wars, even as the Delta variant is causing a surge in coronavirus cases. In California, around 65 percent of the public is fully vaccinated – but polls show that around half of those who have not yet been vaccinated have no plans to get the vaccine. The latest talking point from anti-vaxxers is that the vaccines are ineffective given that a small percentage of vaccinated people later are infected...

Pelosi is right, Biden can’t just cancel student loan debt
