For the win!


Coercion is coercion, by any other name. That includes this “duty” to get vaccinated. A duty which does not apply to those swarming across our borders. They bring Kung Flu variants, as well as much nastier and rare tropical diseases the US population of any color / race is not ready for.

A vaccine that protected you from disease would be helpful. The Kung Flu vax somehow missed that feature.

The interesting numbers will be the percentage which cancel their Almostavax subscription when the initial 2 shot free trial expires after four months. One might wish for a cure for Coviocy to be found before the Karens Union forces more lockdowns and muzzles as 99% of those infected with Wuflu somehow manage to survive.

re: hearing aids, I invested in one of those companies a few months back. There is a huge market which I understand will be opened in mid-November through that recent law.

They are placing kiosks in pharmacies they day they are allowed to and have a monthly/quarterly leasing plan.

I like their business model.


Meanwhile, a “resistance” which means nothing in the long term (aka until Thursday).

Senate Republicans on Monday voted down the House-passed bill to fund the government through Dec. 3 and raise the debt limit.

The final vote was 48-50 (60 votes were needed to advance the measure), with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) changing his vote from Yes to No so he could later bring the bill back up for a vote.



Yeah, have your colonoscopy done by a NG diesel mechanic. Very sophisticated, those Yankees.

“I guess the US pilot thought the guy was on a joyride rather than an approved exhibition flight.”

Hope so. Still a bit of a sissy comment though.

Here’s another view from the same show a few years ago. You can see how much room the plane actually had.


James D.

Getting vaccinated to help out your family, friends and community?!? Whoa! This is breakthrough thinking!

Breakthrough thinking would be our politicians and health bureaucrats and media not dealing lying to us about basically everything all the time, which, if they kept that up for a while, might go a long way towards restoring some trust in our institutions. Crazy, I know.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Getting vaccinated to help out your family, friends and community?!? Whoa! This is breakthrough thinking!--

That's insulting.
If the vaccine works as advertised and has no long term or other deleterious side effects then you are not "helping out" your vaccinated family, friends and community by getting vaccinated, especially since the vaccine doesn't doesn't seem to cut down on the actual numbers of total infections, since so many of the vaccinated get asymptomatic infections.
Regardless, if the vaccine is effective as claimed then what possible legitimate reason is there to try and coerce those resistant to get the vaccine?
I am resistant mostly because I am not convinced the side effects and long term problems are well enough known. Nor am I convinced, though I'm over 40, that the vaccine poses a lower risk to me than getting the bug does. And even if it does, natural immunity sounds far superior to acquired immunity.
And lastly if I have a choice not to use a med developed or produced with the cells of aborted babies I choose not to use it.
Breakthrough that.


How long before we discover that if you get vaccinated, you are required to keep getting boosters, for life, otherwise the withdrawal symptoms would be life-threatening.


PS. That should read - might be life-threatening.

The kind of Rick Ballard content I’m here for.

Good to read you again.


Could it be that people in rural areas find it even less likely they'll get Covid? And isn't it true that they tend to vote R in greater numbers?


Clarice, if viral load is key to Kung Flu transmission, the a big difference in risk between rural and urban areas. Urban areas feature densely packed people, forced to share public transport and elevators, with building HVAC spreading germs all over. Rural people are spaced apart in single family homes surrounded by fresh airs. Epidemics are a feature of population density.. basic science.

Vax mandates are classic one size fits all authoritarianism, facts be damned.

Guess which the uniparty chooses?


Clarice, but not in great enough numbers.

    Yeah, have your colonoscopy done by a NG diesel mechanic.
I hope my neighbors get their colonoscopies so I don't get colon cancer.

My high school class is having a 55th anniversary reunion. It's in the shelter house at (horrors) GERMAN PARK (a private park built by the German immigrant gardeners who settled this part of town.

I have been worrying about what to wear, and now I realize I will probably have to wear a mask and won't recognize anyone who IS masked. Pfui.

Again I ask, what do we know about the masks imported from China? Is anyone testing them?


Fed Prez at night, pro-level Day trader during working hours.

He claims that it was all within the Fed's rules, which if true only says how pathetic their rules are. Seems the Fed powers that be are more just embarrassed that it's come to light and now feel compelled to tighten their restrictions.



Instead of line itemized trades, he lumped them in “multiple”, contrary to disclosure rules. Total liar, and he was, IMOO, totally headline trading as an insider. “Multiple” is the ONLY way to hide that.

And “headline” trading was my schtick for over 20 years. Reading at 1100 wpm has both its advantages and disadvantages. Watching trading techniques was a later learned hobby. This mope was scalping off of headlines THAT He Knew Were Coming. Total insider, and under commodity regs, Un entitled to ANY of the proceeds. None, if the exchanges were to act upon it. So we’ll see…..

I would note that the Times article TM quotes from is based on a Pew Poll, not CDC statistics.

Is it accurate regarding differences in vaccine uptake between Dems and Reps?

Maybe, but I think it reflects more on the coercive mandates of blue state politicians.

The Pew Poll indicates to me that when people are allowed to think about the vaccine and aren't compelled to take it that they have valid reasons for doing so.

From the poll:
"Americans who are not inoculated against COVID-19 express a range of concerns about the vaccines. The August survey asked Americans whether various statements about COVID-19 vaccines describe them very well, somewhat well, not too well or not at all well. At least eight-in-ten unvaccinated adults said the following statements describe them very or somewhat well: “There’s too much pressure on Americans to get a COVID-19 vaccine” (88%); “We don’t really know yet if there are serious health risks from COVID-19 vaccines” (81%); and “Public health officials are not telling us everything they know about COVID-19 vaccines” (80%). Seven-in-ten unvaccinated adults also said the following statement describes them very or somewhat well: “It’s hard to make sense of all the information about COVID-19 vaccines.”

The survey also asked Americans for their reactions to changing public health guidance around some aspects of the pandemic, including information about how the virus spreads and how effective masks are in limiting its spread. Three-quarters or more of unvaccinated Americans expressed negative reactions to the changing guidance, such as by saying it made them wonder if public health officials were holding back important information (78%) and that it made them less confident in public health officials’ recommendations (75%)."

--UPDATE: The US military has placed Lt Col Scheller behind bars--

I would say unbelievable but of course it's not.
I wouldn't even find it unbelievable if General Milley gets an arresting Lt Col Scheller campaign ribbon with oak leaf cluster for his part in bringing this traitor to justice.

I think some of you remember me predicting early on that the vaccine numbers would peak in late May or early June.

Having it happen in April was a big surprise to me. Basically they were able to ramp up production and get as many as possible injected before concerns re-blossomed.

People that really, really wanted it got it. The initial scarcity of the vaccine probably led to even more demand. The way the vaccine was, in some cases, withheld for "political" reasons no doubt added to the demand for the vaccine. Nothing like a little scarcity to amp demand.
Then the J&J pause.
Then more stuff.

And they lost control of the messaging.

Biden: I think we can get back to normal when 97-98% of us are vaccinated

Allahpundit is an idiot, but I haven't seen this reported elsewhere.

Maybe it's somewhat normal to try and parse what Xiden could have possibly meant by this, but why not just ask Jen Psaki about it?



Tom Bowler

At one time the Red/Blue divide based on vote share was blurred by Black hesitancy in the (Red) southern states. Headline-grabbing NBA athletes notwithstanding, it has turned out that by and large Blacks were hesitant but persuadable. Hard core Trumpers, not so much.

Funny how the Red/Blue divide numbers would in all likelihood be the reverse of what they are if the Dems hadn't successfully stolen the 2020 presidential election.

Sept. 2020 AFL-CIO Virtual Event

During a virtual union event in September of 2020, Biden was asked if he’d take the vaccine if it were announced the day after. He replied that he would, but only if certain stipulations were met.

“Only if it was completely transparent, that other experts in the country could look at it. Only if we knew all of what went into it, because so far nothing he’s told us has been true,” he said, referencing to then-President Trump.

Virtually everything the former president said about the coronavirus vaccine turned out to be true, including his claim that a vaccine would be out by year’s end.


Oct. 2020 Vice Presidential Debate

Asked during the vice presidential debate in October whether she’d take the vaccine if the Trump administration produced it before the election, Harris said she wouldn’t if it Trump told her to take it.

“If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it, absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it,” she said.


So, who’s gaslighting whom? GOPe or my lying eyes?



The owner of the proudly far-left Minocqua Brewing Company is planning to go judge shopping and file multiple federal lawsuits in an effort to get an injunction mandating masks in all of Wisconsin's schools.



That looks like a popular move..



Not behind the paywall, although you will have to turn down a couple of subscription offers.

Buford Gooch

The article doesn't seem to fit well with the numbers from New York City: "The number of black residents in New York City who have not been vaccinated is drastically disproportionate to other racial groups. More than 70% of black people in New York City aged 18 to 44 have not gotten the injection".
I guess that 70% of black people in New York City are all Trump voters.




This is from a former ChiTrib editor, so steeped in Cook County standing water, that he can’t see what he wrecked on the way out the door:


Utter tonedeafness.



"It is obvious that Republicans are more unethical and anti-democratic.."

What a pile of BS. I wonder how much money HE got from nefarious "sources"?

- Biz community, govs, mayors and majority of ppl support it

Obvious obfuscation if not downright lying.

What "top officials"?


White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed during Monday's press briefing that it would be "unfair and absurd" for companies to raise costs on consumers in response to the Biden administration raising the corporate tax rate.

And that sums up the economic prowess of the Biden Administration

The Marine Who Called for Afghanistan Accountability Has Been Thrown in Prison

“Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Jr. is currently in pre-trial confinement in the Regional Brig for Marine Corps Installations East aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune pending an Article 32 preliminary hearing,” said Capt. Sam Stephenson, a spokesman for Training and Education Command. “The time, date, and location of the proceedings have not been determined. Lt. Col. Scheller will be afforded all due process.”

Was on an international panel discussion of the supply chain disruptions in the electronics industry and it is going to get worse before it gets better.

The component manufacturers are behind the curve until mid-late 2022. Chinese component suppliers are giving priority to Chinese customers. Labor shortages of skilled workers worldwide. Basic metals shortages in Pd, Ni, and rare earths.

Even injection molding and enclosures are running long lead times.

On top of this is the shipping crisis.

The top players are meeting in DC and yet they have yet to understand the depth and breadth of the issue.

Topped with this is a power generation shortage in China that is way out of hand. Presently coal stocks at power plants are 18 days heading into winter. China simply doesn't have enough power. Europe has its own crises.

We have plenty of resources but a completely f'd up government getting in the way of power generation. This is fundamental to all of the other crises.

"What do we want? Power! When do we want it? On demand!"

This hasn't been an issue since the beginning of the Industrial Age. And yet the brightest men have forgotten the most simple lessons.

Even today, the materials guy spent most of his time either bragging how environmentally conscious they were (a major German company) and yet California is on the brink constantly and telling EV users not to charge their cars so the grid doesn't collapse.

And they want to ban the IC engine by 2030 - 2050 depending upon which asshole you listen to.

How is it that the Taliban’s example in destroying the statues in Bamiyan was so soon copied by the students in those madrassas of the West known as universities?..."
