Our host looks at some of the COVID/vaccine/blood clot numbers.

Dave-

It's simple. Where's AZ based?

Think Brexit. "Pay me."- EU

Dave (in MA)

Europeans complaining about the US hoarding the AZ vax while shutting it down because of supposed problems with it reminds me of the old lousy food/too small portions restaurant joke.

Its a swedish company that acquired

A british subsidiary

I am America all the way. My jab was Moderna. Located in ex-Brady country. Dave's stretch of the woods.

I would take AstraZeneca as long as a Swedish bathing suit model administerd it:)

GUS

The Euroweanies didn't lead to develop any vaccine.
Trump brought people together to work cooperatively, while still being competitors. It worked. Do the Euro's want only vaccines that save everyone, ALL THE TIME??? Then shut the fuck up and invent them.

GUS

Male or female or Trannie JACK? Or even plus sized????

The March Madness Tourney seems to have created a big uptick in business downtown. One of my nephews had a birthday this weekend and my sister said that they usually go eat at a steakhouse downtown, which is a big deal restaurant. She couldn't get reservations for Friday or Saturday. They will go somewhere on the far northside instead.

Also, Macy's business is booming, according to the store manager. (Sis, of course, thinks it's the result of dem policies. I bit my tongue and changed the subject.)

Dave (in MA)

The Jordan Fuchs GA Dep'ty Sec'y State has been outed by the Bezos Daily Worker as their source of the fake news that helped throw the Senate races to the commies.

Dave (in MA)

Reportedly, as of tomorrow, all MA residents will be able to find out the expected date of their jabbing.

Maybe I can get one in time to have someone over to grill some hot dogs on the Fourth.

CCGirl

Dave, where did you hear/see that? I can’t imagine MA is capable of that.

Re explosions. We have a faux oil lamp on display at the store, led with a fake flame. People think it’s real. As if we would have a live flame at the counter of a hardware store. “Say, why don’t you put that can of paint thinner closer to the open flame. We’d like to blow up the joint ASAP.” 🙄

Isn’t Pantene the product that doesn’t know if it’s a shampoo or a conditioner:

Hair is a large part of our identity. And for LGBTQ+ youth like Sawyer, who choose to express themselves, their style, & their creativity through their hair style, it can help them feel seen.

Catch up with Sawyer and her mom Ashley & see how this family is #BeautifulLGBTQ 🌈💞

MissMarple2

Pinandpuller,

Ugh. Well, I will have to find another shampoo. WHY do all of these companies insist on publishing their stands on controversial issues?

Who in the company okayed and paid for that video? Do all employees agree with it, or only some?

The only thing I can do is quit buying their products.

Its all about esg scores and zombied

henry

How will they stage manage this thing? Will the podium wiper return?

Amid mounting questions from the press, including a 'WTF' Monday Op-Ed from Bloomberg's Jonathan Bernstein, the Biden administration has finally booked the President's very first press conference on March 25, according to a Tuesday announcement by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/biden-finally-schedules-press-conference-after-psaki-circles-back

Narciso

Mostly esg scores

CCGirl

What are “esg scores?”

Narciso

Economic social governmental rankings had nothing to do with profitability or commom sense.

CCGirl

How does one obtain the “podium wiper” job? Is there training process? Does one need a special degree? I am just thinking of changing careers.

Narciso

Wall street is all in on it, including major banks

henry

ESG scores are the prog replacement for earnings. Scores for bowing to sky dragon, installing diversity, and celebrating Howard Johnson’s 33 genders. These things kill profits, so they don’t talk about earnings anymore.

Narciso

I thought thats what jonathan bernstein was for, he wasnt the worst of the jouurnolist

Narciso

But he was pretty bad in that group.

CCGirl

Ah, back in my banking days we had to do so many hours of “community involvement.” I forget what it was called. Then the feds required it of banks. Must be the same sort of thing, just the scarier, proggier version.

I just took the Implicit Association Test (IAT) because the company I work for asked everyone to take it. What a piece of garbage. I am sitting here shaking with rage. Please stop me from doing something stupid. Maybe writing this comment makes that already too late. OOOOHHHHHHH!!!
I am really starting to hate the modern world and what it does to people.

GUS

Jane, your positive attitude can be infectious.

GUS

JohnS. THE modern world doesn't do this to people. Did it do it to you? no? Me neither. It's evil people seeking to baptize themselves as decent people. And greedy bastards that want MOAR GUBMINT CASH.
The government has no cash. Where would it get it from??

Wolf being investigated is a good start. I hope it amounts to something substantial. I won't be holding my breath, however.

CCGirl

JohnS, I imagine you thought it would be bad, but clearly it was way worse than you expected. Hang in there.

Today has been tough. Yesterday was a long day at the store. Today I read the paper version of The Epoch Times at breakfast. Realistic, but utterly depressing. Then I was waiting for tea water to boil, shifted my weight and threw out my back - just standing there!

It’s going to get worse. We all know it. Hang in there everyone. (The back is clearing up :-).

Blood labs today. Nothing to get me on the short list for the vaccine. I blame Keto (plus beer).

CCGIRL,
Having a back that goes out is a tough one. I am already calming down from my ordeal with the IAT. Tomorrow at 8AM I will be logging onto the implicit bias training session. I hope to God I can keep my mouth shut.

jimmyk

These things kill profits, so they don’t talk about earnings anymore.

At Mrs K's firm the issue is that some big clients are state pension funds, and they have ESG requirements. (That's more outrageous than private investors having them.) They have no choice but to accommodate, though a lot of the management is on board to the point where when the clients say "Bend over," they say "How far?"

CCGirl

I’m okay. I stretch, and am feeling better already. As you know it’s just something that wears one down. I don’t have time for a bad back so I stretched, and used this ?-shaped gizmo that allows one to work on the upper back (Son’s friend’s father made it for him. It’s amazing).

JohnS, hubs says his friend had to go through the bias training at his well-known sporting goods company. He was asked to share his perspective on the racism he has seen. He said, “I am sorry, but I have never seen racism.” He was told he wasn’t trying hard enough. Maybe because this person is not a racist?

I don't think we will be asked individual questions tomorrow. only 3 sessions offered for over 800 in my firm. I hope I'm right

henry

That dude explaining ESG is up set because he believes in sky dragon, but even he knows the ESG stuff is nonsense.

CCGirl

JohnS, that’s good. I may have to put up with a lot of nonsense in retail, but I would never make it in today’s woke corporate world. I would have been fired, as I probably could not have kept quiet. Hubs has been lucky - not a hint of “training” yet in his company.

I really feel as though I have been able to “slip through the cracks” this past year. We are too small to be an issue. We have had the best year ever. Even the classic MA liberals don’t complain about us (well a few do), but it’s a non-issue. I’m so tired of it all, and I have had it easy. But the kids are really tired of it.

Henry is a ceo and he requires TRAINING just to drink beer with him.

This is Charlie Parker’s tweet today, that DaveinMA must have been referencing earlier:

Tomorrow morning, our administration will release the schedule for all remaining groups in MA’s vaccine plan. Every resident will know when they are eligible for a vaccine.

Thank you for making MA a national leader in the vaccination effort!

Seriously. WTF. This idiot is a complete asshoe!

Jane

What a world! Tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day. I’m pretty sure I’m not Irish, but might as well celebrate - until it becomes illegal!

GUS

My company has over 800 employees, and they don't train you. If you can't sell, you are gone. I can sell. They leave me alone. They are privately owned and want RESULTS/PROFITS. That's how TAXES are generated.

matt - deplore me if you must

Biden is really falling apart. Another deadly accident today at the border. Thousands of illegals assaulting the border. He spoke for only a few minutes at a photo-op.

The media is in full furor over Tucker and is also going full Newspeak with its war on cancel culture. "Shut up, they explained".

I don't think the majority is very happy with all of the BS.

Now some a-hole legislator from San Jose wants to root out conservative cops based upon their tweets nd posts. They really have no clue how fascist they have become.

Separate but Equal is their rallying cry.

CCGirl

Jane, I am mostly Irish, but I have never been a big “Irish” person. Maybe there is too much of it here in MA already.

But now I understand there is the concept of “Irish rebellion,” and such. So I may enjoy it a bit more this year.

Have fun, and enjoy your freedom in FL!

GUS

Matt, the plane spirals out of control, until it crashes and explodes, killing the FASCISTS who were responsible, and taking the paying customers with them.

I question that.

Substitute 'care' for 'clue' and I'll withdraw the question. :)

That would not surprise me one little bit.
If he does remember he knows he's too big a fish to swallow.
But just like Joe, forget all that, the real casualty of that episode is the prostitute Kamala "I believe Tara Reade" Harris.
This grotesque bint actually has a chance to eclipse Hillary's world record in the cynical grasping hag sweepstakes.

https://spectator.us/topic/andrew-cuomo-the-princess-di-of-the-plague/

My Sunday local paper published an article "Murphy administration lacking transparency," that details just how hard it is to do any independent research on the Covid decisions of Murphy and crew.

I'd link it but it's subscribers only on the web.

Query answers: "Advisory, consultative or deliberative material" is a popular one. So is "no responsive records."

It reeks of a deliberate cover-up. Like they intentionally didn't take minutes of various meetings.

The premise that this is nothing new is nothing new. Various local political machines have done this for a a long time. I think the coordination is new, but it's like a vaudeville sketch that everybody knows, but can't quite place correctly.

Everybody says yeah this stuff happens, but it's always just a local thing. Well, apparently, nobody ever linked so many local machines together so well to affect a national election.

My girlfriend likes to sneak up on me while I'm sitting here in my swivel chair. I'm not supposed to know that she's there.

So I say "Slowly I turned," as I swivel my seat. She says, "I Love Lucy."

Huh? "No, that was Abbott and Costello or the Three Stooges."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slowly_I_Turned

It was all of them and many more. It's an old vaudeville routine.

Just like election fraud shares similar elements.

Locals perfected it. Consultants exported it. The basics are all the same.

I think the big difference this time is they managed to link enough corrupt cities together using a national corrupt private effort with lots of funding.

It's a criminal effort with so many minor linked players that we can't prove it yet.

Like "Slowly I turned," the plot has been in place for a long time and is well understood. Nobody ever thought of attaching a turbocharger to it before.

jim nj--do you have your appointment with your endovascular surgeon yet?
This has dragged on way past when I told you what your problem was. ;-)
Don't wait for the results of aortic ultrasound--make it for the day after it. He can find the results.

And it's not the Covid that made it happen--it's the cigarettes. For some reason, almost everybody suffering from this problem to the point of intervention smoked or smokes. Many a vascular surgeon won't intervene til the cigarettes are a thing of the past.

(Was it sbw who said "Don't quit. Just wait fifteen minutes for the next one." When I stopped, I had decided years ago to wait til 65 for my next one. Your sharing this may make me come up with a new plan.)

Your onset is typical--slow, then fast.
Think about it as a pipe, with stuff building up inside. In the beginning, a millimeter of accumulated sludge (atherosclerosis) doesn't impact flow too much, but as it builds up, decreasing the space the blood can come through by another millimeter all around becomes a significant drop in the area of that circle.People do get to the point of having rest pain. Don't let that be you.

(Part of the reason there is "childhood asthma."--little broncial passages are far more impacted by a millimeter of inflamation than great big ones. The allergic reaction may not go away, but the feeling of not being able to breath does.)

If anybody still cares about the stuff that should have been promulgated from day one as likely effective in preventing infection/spread, but suddenly, RCTs had to be available to use a nasal spray.

Obligatory Trump blame:

The violence in Georgia unfolded days after U.S. President Joe Biden used a nationally televised speech to condemn a recent surge in hate crimes and discrimination against Asian-Americans. Civil rights groups have suggested that former President Donald Trump contributed to the trend by repeatedly referring to the coronavirus as the “China virus” because it first emerged there.
