Honest to God, I cannot understand how anyone can look at bureaucrats and politicians and think to themselves, "I wish these people had more power over my life."

The new mask mandates are not about convincing people to get vaccinated. They are about dividing Americans between those who get a gold star in data-free obedience and everyone else.

So, to be clear, the CDC is now pushing masking for the vaccinated nationally because there were some 882 cases of covid linked to Provincetown over the July 4 weekend, most among the vaccinated; a grand total of seven were hospitalized and 0 died.

They're still the champions at kneeling though, which is the important thing

Essentially, our government is now merely a series of unelected bureaucrats in the executive branch deciding how we live our lives, enabled by 3,000 page bills compiled by anonymous staffers and voted on by legislators who have never read them.

Again, the message should be clear: you are an adult, responsible for the consequences of your decisions. Getting vaxxed essentially protects you from the virus. Remaining unvaxxed makes you vulnerable. Make your choice.

Here are your choices: (1) Get vaxxed, probably avoid covid altogether and if you do get it, get mildly ill and almost certainly avoid death; or (2) Don't get vaxxed, likely get covid, most likely get somewhat ill, but retain a far higher chance of death than the vaxxed.

Note that in this calculation, there is no talk of masks. Because masks are not going to prevent either outcome indefinitely given current data.

Testing positive for covid post-vaccination and then getting mildly ill should not be cause for alarm. There is no public health emergency in becoming mildly ill. It's insane that the media are treating it as such.


Facts don't care about your feelings.

Donald Trump has, in fact, condemned white supremacy repeatedly. In the exchange everyone is quoting from last night, he repeatedly said he was willing to do so. The fact that this has been obscured is journalistic malpractice.

Do not share the shooter's name. Do not share the shooter's evil video. Do not share the shooter's evil manifesto. Mass killers desire fame and attention. Starve them of it.

Trump just got Biden to say he wants to end the oil industry. Wild.

What we are watching -- the militarization of social media on behalf of Democrats, and the overt suppression of material damaging to Democrats to the cheering of the press -- is one of the single most dangerous political moments I have ever seen.

I literally have no idea who won this debate. I just know we all lost.

I will never understand how so many people can look at our politicians and think, "Yes, they know better how to run my life than I do, and I think I will give them nearly-unlimited power."

Pence dismantled Harris. So the entire media will talk about pinkeye and a rogue fly.

How did Biden avoid answering AGAIN whether he would pack the court?
