Dr. Anthony Fauci, on the idea of people refusing a vaccine in favor of a drug meant for animals to treat COVID-19 symptoms:
“Ivermectin has not been proven an effective treatment for the coronavirus. It can be used to treat parasites in humans, but the ivermectin people have been taking is used to treat animals like horses. Don’t do it. There is no evidence whatsoever that [horse paste] works, and it could potentially have toxicity, as you just mentioned, with people who have gone to poison control centers because they’ve taken the drug at a ridiculous dose and wind up getting sick.”
Seriously. Can you fathom the idea that a person will not take a vaccine created by medical professionals, but will suck up a drug meant to deworm farm animals?
Carrie Prejean Boller
the 2007 Miss USA competition representing South Carolina was asked why she thinks a fifth of Americans cannot locate their country on a map, and said:
"I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don't have maps and uh, I believe that our, I, education like such as, uh, South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uh, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for us.”
Looks like she was right about masks since she took her school board fight to a state in which she does not live. But still, forgive me if I take absolutely zero advice from this homophobic, Thing 45 supporting, illiterate fool on any topic, anywhere, anytime, ever.
Kevin McCarthy, GOP House Minority Leader, vowing that Republicans “will not forget” if telecommunications companies turn phone and email records over to the House committee investigating the Capitol Insurrection:
“If these companies comply with the Democrat order to turn over private information, they are in violation of federal law and subject to losing their ability to operate in the United States.”
Sorry, Kev, but could you tell anyone exactly what law prohibits telecommunications companies from complying with the committee’s request.
Or maybe you’re too busy pissing your pants over what could come out from that day, like you talking with the former president about the attack.
Kid Rock, cancelling two shows in Fort Worth because his band caught “something”:
“I am pissed. Over half the band has fucking COVID. And before u [sic] shit for brains bloggers and media trolls run your mouths, many of them, like me, have been vaccinated.”
Um, shit for brains? May I call you shit for brains? No one said you couldn’t get COVISF after being vaccinated, but, luckily for you and band of travelling morons, you won’t get sick and die.
Oh, and thanks for bragging about playing for a “packed house” at the Superspreader Sturgis motorcycle event.
President Joe Biden, responding to the Supreme Court allowing the nation's most restrictive abortion law to
“The Supreme Court’s ruling overnight is an unprecedented assault on a woman’s constitutional rights under Roe v. Wade, which has been the law of the land for almost fifty years. By allowing a law to go into effect that empowers private citizens in Texas to sue health care providers, family members supporting a woman exercising her right to choose after six weeks, or even a friend who drives her to a hospital or clinic, it unleashes unconstitutional chaos and empowers self-anointed enforcers to have devastating impacts. Complete strangers will now be empowered to inject themselves in the most private and personal health decisions faced by women. This law is so extreme it does not even allow for exceptions in the case of rape or incest. And it not only empowers complete strangers to inject themselves into the most private of decisions made by a woman—it actually incentivizes them to do so with the prospect of $10,000 if they win their case. For the majority to do this without a hearing, without the benefit of an opinion from a court below, and without due consideration of the issues, insults the rule of law and the rights of all Americans to seek redress from our courts. Rather than use its supreme authority to ensure justice could be fairly sought, the highest Court of our land will allow millions of women in Texas in need of critical reproductive care to suffer while courts sift through procedural complexities. The dissents by Chief Justice Roberts, and Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan all demonstrate the error of the Court’s action here powerfully. While the Chief Justice was clear to stress that the action by the Supreme Court is not a final ruling on the future of Roe, the impact of last night’s decision will be immediate and requires an immediate response. One reason I became the first president in history to create a Gender Policy Council was to be prepared to react to such assaults on women’s rights. Hence, I am directing that Council and the Office of the White House Counsel to launch a whole-of-government effort to respond to this decision, looking specifically to the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice to see what steps the Federal Government can take to ensure that women in Texas have access to safe and legal abortions as protected by Roe, and what legal tools we have to insulate women and providers from the impact of Texas’ bizarre scheme of outsourced enforcement to private parties.”
Of note, the very same legislature that said the government cannot mandate the wearing of masks in public to protect the healthcare of the entire nation, is now mandating what a woman can, and cannot do, with her own healthcare choices.
This is a very slippery slope, y’all, and has very dangerous implications for the rights of women and minorities in this country is it allowed to stand.
