Colbert: Mu Becomes a Concern, the Delta Spread Continues, and Stephen Shaves the ‘Stache

Politics • Views: 13,300

YouTube

It’s all based on science.

75% of American adults have received at least one vaccine shot as of today, yet the pandemic rages on as a variant called Mu enters the realm of concern. Meanwhile, caving to popular demand and family pressure, Stephen Colbert shaved off his questionable mustache. #Colbert #Comedy #Monologue

Why I’m glad that Biden is issuing a vaccine mandate to federal employees and federal contractors. We have to coerce these dumbasses into vaccinating.

Well the Big Xtian guy who complained about girls wearing bikinis…got his ass fired…

A Christian construction company that lists its values as “faith, respect, truth, and integrity” says it has fired Logan Dorn, a man caught on camera saying his “righteous anger” and the “Holy Spirit” made him harass several young women over their choice of bathing suits at a public beach on a Colorado lake. Those videos went viral, garnering millions of views.

“Today information was brought to our attention that one of our employees, Logan Dorn, was accused of harassing a group of individuals over the weekend in Northern Colorado,” a post on the Mighty Hand Construction’s Facebook page reads. “We began an investigation this morning which has resulted in the immediate termination of Mr. Dorn. Mighty Hand Construction does not condone Logan’s behavior in the videos, nor do his actions reflect our values as a company. Mighty Hand strives to be a place of business where all are treated with utmost respect and acceptance, and actions by our employees which go against those values will not be tolerated.”

Just waiting for Mr. Big Xtian to show up on Fox and Friends so he can blame his firing on Hunter Biden…

I assume the Holy Spirit told him to go to that particular beach…

The vaccine mandate blowback is going to be really loud, and sometimes violent. We have already seen some of this. Mandates only matter where specific irresponsibility would otherwise be common. IOW they fight for the right to be… selfishly wrong again.

re: #342 Nojay UK

Actually nukes spread a lot more radioactive material around than the worst power plant accidents. The US above-ground nuclear tests dumped about 5 tonnes of plutonium and uranium-235 across the centre of the continental United States between 1945 and 1962 as well as tens of kilogrammes of fission products. The thermonuclear tests in the Pacific were worse, 150 megatonnes of detonations resulting in the entire ocean being polluted with Cs-134 and Cs-137 among other fission products.

The three reactors at Fukushima which exploded in 2011 released about 5 kilogrammes of fission products, much of which was short-lived isotopes like I-131 (half-life 8.5 days) which was very radioactive for a short time before it was gone.

That might have been true for nuclear accidents in Western nations. But didn’t Chernobyl release far more radiation than the bombs in Japan? And how about compared to later bomb tests? How did Chernobyl stack up against them?

Facebook, which has been criticized over its handling of user data, said it would not access the media used by its smart-glasses customers without their consent.

The company also said it would not use the content of the photos or videos captured using the glasses and stored in the Facebook View app for personalizing ads, and said the glasses would be an “ads-free experience.”

Color me skeptical.

It sounds like the Murdaugh family saga has finally caught the attention of the WashPost. Although I think that our South Carolina lizard correspondents there have provided more timely, complete and context rich information. So thank you!

Two interesting points from the article, though:

First:

On Monday, Alex declared that he had an addiction and checked into an undisclosed rehab center.

What?! Where? I checked with an attorney close to the case, who said: “If he’s smart, he’s in South America.”

Second, context that is probably assumed by many folks native to the area, but perhaps less to outsiders such as myself:

This all may sound fevered to outsiders, but the fact is that some rural areas in this state (and likely elsewhere, as well) are still run very much as they were 100 years ago. There’s one sheriff in town, so to speak, and in Hampton County, his name was Murdaugh, in one form or another, going all the way back to 1920. Several normally well-informed folks here, all lawyers, tell me that they typically settle rather than try cases in Murdaugh country. “Rigged” is a word you hear a lot.

Chernobyl had a reactor running at full power explode and then burn to the atmosphere. That takes the biscuit, nucleonically speaking. Still, saying that the IAEA report about the Chernobyl disaster published about fifteen years later put the confirmed deaths from radioactive release outside the plant at…

32. No, not 32,000 or even 320 but 32. They were all thyroid cancers caused by ingestion of milk contaminated by I-131 from the ‘hot’ reactor. They could have been treated medically but with the mess the country was in after the explosion they didn’t get caught in time. Making cheese would have prevented even that death toll since the months it would take for the cheese made from the contaminated milk to mature would have meant the I-131 would have decayed away to near-nothing.

There were a bunch of people who died from severe radiation poisoning at the reactor site when the explosion happened, some more who suffered ill effects but generally most folks who worked on the site during and after the event survived for decades without issue, even the ‘liquidators’. See also the Fukushima Fifty, the workers at the Fukushima plant who stayed on site as the reactors blew up, dead men walking according to the press at the time, their samurai spirit, yadda yadda. Nearly all of them are still around with no ill effects ten years later. I think the official death toll from radiation released from the Fukushima reactors is one or two people (the one I recall from press reports specified a man who worked on the site died from lung cancer several years after the tsunami and explosions, he was in his mid-50s.)

So, in other news, the French government has just announced that contraception will be free for all women less than 25 years old.

(To make certain heads explode, up to now it has only been free for minors).

To some extent this measure has been taken in an attempt to reduce the number of abortions (which are also free).

How much gas do I save in my Tesla at 55mph vs 70 mph? (I don’t really have a Tesla but as we move to electric…)

A Tesla uses the same amount of gas at both speeds, zero. /snark

With electric vehicles, the slower you go, the more efficient it is for the most part. But the cost is so low (zero if you have solar) that the only time you’d be remotely concerned about it is during long road trips. As far as stop and go is concerned, it’s not nearly as punishing in electrics since they benefit from regenerative braking.

The Supreme Court’s swing justices have been wishy-washy on this.

They also allowed on a 5-4 conservative-liberal vote (when RBG was still on the court) the execution of a Muslim prisoner in Alabama even without his imam in the execution chamber.

But possibly due to the backlash over that decision, they later blocked the execution of a Buddhist prisoner against a Texas policy only allowing Christian and Muslim prisoners to have a member of their faith in the execution chamber ( Texas claimed it was because the Texas department of Corrections only had Christian and Muslim chaplains on its staff) in 2019 on a 7-2 vote.

Yeah, Kathleen Parker with a superficial, but touted as “I’m in SC, so I know the skinny” take. (I can’t stand her.)

Rumor is that the addiction is Oxycodone. Also, Parker doesn’t make any mention of two other suspicious deaths in the Murdaugh circle—one, Stephen Smith, rumored to have been in a relationship with the other Murdaugh son.

fitsnews.com

The other, a Murdaugh housekeeper, Gloria Satterfield, who died in a “trip and fall.”

An October 2020 FITSNews report stated that Richard was the only defendant named in the settlement. His insurance company reportedly gave $500,000 for personal liability in the wrongful death and $5,000 for medical payment for the accident. However, the court documents did not note where the accident took place and why Richard was named in the death of Satterfield.

Justice Department sues Texas to block six-week abortion ban

Today at 3:04 p.m. EDT

President Biden’s Justice Department sued the state of Texas on Thursday to try to block the nation’s most restrictive abortion law, which bans the procedure as early as six weeks into pregnancy and allows private citizens to take legal action against anyone who helps a woman terminate her pregnancy.

Attorney General Merrick Garland has scheduled an afternoon news conference to announce the lawsuit filed in federal court in Austin.

In a fundraising letter dated August 2021, Perkins wrote, “As hard as the COVID-19 pandemic has been on everyone, it did bring one unexpected blessing that I urge you to help me capitalize on.” Perkins continued:

You see, when public schools were forced to go virtual, parents got a front-row seat to the radical anti-faith, anti-family, anti-America indoctrination being force fed to their children.

From gender identity ideology to Critical Race Theory (CRT) and the revisionist 1619 Project branding America as systemically racist from its founding until today, parents realized their local public schools were filling their children’s minds with lies, hatred, and division…

My farm has been in the same family (until I bought it 27 years ago) since the original land grant in the 1700s. The farm itself is significantly smaller now at 200 acres, but the ramshackle house we currently occupy has been here since before the Civil War (the original part of the house is a 2-story notch and peg log structure. My barn is also a timberframe more than 100 years old.

Sounds like back when it was known as “Western Virginia” and “A Dark and Bloody Ground”. Was the original landgrant one of the Revolutionary War ones?

A friend and his wife bought a farm in rural Westmoreland County, Pa (near Armbrust) back in the 1970s.The farmhouse, original to the farm, had 1797 carved into the stone lintel.

There was an ice house and a number of water and gas wells on the property. He sold off about 50 acres with the barn to a neighbor and paid for the other couple of hundred acres. He then retired to the life of a gentleman farmer, and his wife wrote romance novels and taught English Writing in the local community college. Both were in their early thirties at the time.

Cataract surgery is one of the great quality of life enhancers. Cataracts are sneaky—people don’t realize how poor their vision has become. That sort of thing can recur in a few years. The lenses take up a subtle coat of human goo, and the eye doc can zap it away with a YAG laser in seconds.

I’ve been slightly ahead of you in the cataract race for several years now. My guess is that they can diagnose “early cataracts” much earlier now, so a lot of younger people are hearing now about what might be a problem in a decade or so.

So he’s still giving anti-vaxxers an out by letting them just test weekly. Interesting.

During oral arguments in July, Eckhart’s lawyer Michael John Willemin described Henry’s conduct as “Weinstein-esque, but worse.”

This is why the right fights against progress toward being a society where this is not tolerated. Abuse is in their nature.

Yup, from March. Unfortunately she had Pfizer, and it might not offer as much protection. No one has mentioned Delta, the test probably isn’t that specific.

Sofia-2 sounds nice, and not at all like a swab jammed up your nose almost into your brain.

The article says nothing about who will pay for those tests. You can bet your sweet ass the employers aren’t going to, nor will insurance after the first few, if that. Sounds more like get the vax (for free) or get tested weekly, with the cost coming out of YOUR pocket. The basic carrot/stick approach from where I sit. Now lets see if it will actually work.

I saw this fuckhead at sorryantivaxxer yesterday.

My first thought on seeing that picture was that this guy had a ton of pent up bigotry in him over multiple decades. Trump comes along and tells this guy “It’s okay to be an unapologetic bigot”, and this guy is so ecstatic over this he permanently inks his body with that grifter’s image.

That’s what we’re up against.

Yup, from March. Unfortunately she had Pfizer, and it might not offer as much protection. No one has mentioned Delta, the test probably isn’t that specific.

All the reports I’ve seen say that Pfizer is just as effective as the others at protecting you from serious illness, which is what I, at least, since have mostly worried about.

My wife and I went to a funeral of a close friend this morning. He died of Covid. 43 years old.

Church was packed.

Most people unmasked.

My wife and I were masked.

Now I wonder when the next funeral is going to be?

14 to 24 days. Bank on it.
