Well, the daughter and I received the second Moderna shot last Thursday. Yes we have vaccine cards, despite any "mark of the beast" bullshit from fake "Christians." Apparently, over 38% of the population of this state has been fully vaccinated, the highest rate in the nation according to Vox and Politico.
No surprise, the mayor declared a city-wide mask mandate in early March, about a week before the state-wide mandate from the Governor and former state Secretary of Health. Place has more PhDs than any other state, so overall compliance with basic public health issues tend to be taken more seriously than states predominated by semi-literate NeoNazis. So, the transmission rate is asymptotically reaching zero.
Now that second Moderna dose is a whopper and if you experience is similar, You may want to consider consuming cannabis edibles. I think I did 700mg and took two naps the first day, minimal pain if any.
Speaking of Cannabis, Rec is now legal under the best law I have seen. Addresses everything in detail, including wiping out priors, no child confiscation due to cannabis use, smoking lounges, decrim for minors, micro-licenses to prevent rich-white men from owning everything, and a lot more.
One clever aspect is that no community can opt-out entirely. This will mean redneck cities like Hobbs, Eunice, Clayton, Portales, etc. will fill with cannabis-related positions from budtender to dope farmer. Bye, Republicans, go back to Texas, but first may I interest you in some Cannabis?
Yeah, some places in East NM will make a killing, but none as much as Anthony, right next to El Paso. What is Trinidad up to, 30+ dispensaries? In 5 years Anthony will have over 50 and Trinidad will maybe have 12. Sorry Trinidad, nice place, but all is fair in love and capitalism. We're gonna make a killing off Texas until they legalize, which should be around the time the last proton decays.
So how are things in your state under the enlightened leadership of Governors Newsom, Ducey, Abbot, Kemp, Noem, Whitmer, DeSantis, and Cuomo? Maybe you should consider voting with science rather than against.
Damn, i"m so glad I don't live in a shithole state.
The problem with knowing everything is learning nothing.
If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.
In the years between 1933 and 1945 the Nazis intentionally murdered at least 6 million Jews, homosexuals, Roma, disabled people, and political opponents. That genocide has a name, in fact it has at least two common ones, Holocaust and Shoah.
In the years 1932 and 1933 the Soviet Union under direct orders from Josef Stalin intentionally murdered at least 3.5 million Ukrainians. Today the common name for that genocide is Holodomor.
There is another genocide that has a name, the Conquest by which I am referring to the extermination of the native population in the Western Hemisphere. It is a bit of an outlier as one cannot honestly ascribe this genocide to any particular individual as most, but by no means all, American Indians, were killed by disease. However the blame for the deaths that were lies directly with Roman Catholicism as understood by the Spanish authorities fresh off the Reconquista and with the Catalan Pope Alexander VI aka Rodrigo Borgia dividing the world between Spain and Portugal.
In the years between 1915 and 1917 the Ottoman Empire murdered between 800,000 and 1.2 million Armenians under orders of what is historically known as the Young Turks. However, similar to the Cambodian genocide, we do not have a common name for that indisputable historic event. Joe Biden, to his eternal credit finally did the obvious and recognize it as genocide, a feat that no President before him, Republican or Democrat, was able to muster the moral courage to accomplish.
I think that all genocides should have a direct name like Holocaust or Holodomor. Now that begs a question, what do we call the the COVID genocide? So far it has killed at least 2.3 million worldwide including 578,000 US citizens while still ongoing. We even have a culprit in the Trump family and those who believe them, namely anti-science Republicans who choose to reject the words of Christ while still proclaiming their-selves to be Christians when their devotion is primarily to reelection and Nazi ideology over the Constitution of the United States of America.
Blame for this murderous ideology is not as clear as any attendees of the Wanasee Confrence, a Young Turks get together, or any Communist directive from the Politburo. However, the Republicans come off as more guilty than the Spanish of intentional genocide since most deaths were not directly intentional by the standards of their day. For Donnie Jr., he loved COVID because it only killed Democrats at first, which tells you he is too stupid and traitorous to give a shit about anyone or anything other than his rapidly diminishing hopes of as hefty inheritance he thinks he will get from daddy after Nuremberg.
Ultimately, my question is, what should we call the Trump/Republican ongoing worldwide genocide of 2020? Perhaps the audience may have some suggestions?
