I'm not sure if I should be offended that you'd even ask, or place the blame on myself for not properly expressing myself as the conservative I am.

For the record though, certainly not.  I sent them back to their 8'x8' (feet not meters) quarters where they belong.

Co-worker tested positive. I am now quarantined. And my son tells me I smell like beef and cheese. I think I smell like doritos.

If your private parts turn orange, it's probably just from all of the Cheesies that you've been eating.

Wonder if Biden admin will give thought to just one dose?  It’s a true race against time now  the regular population is 5 weeks from full protection and this thing is raging.  About 2% of population have the first dose.  Around 10% in official cases with some antibodies for whatever that is worth.

It's crazy how different state laws are these days. In Michigan you can buy a bag of dope in front of a cop and he will tell you to have a nice day. Same state you sell a dinner platter (indoor seating) to a family you could lose your business license. In Indiana you have a gram of dope you will go to jail. Same state every resturant is open to indoor seating...............

States’ rights, baby.

I keep a couple twin beds in the basement. The area is fenced off so people feel safe.

Fenced off seems so much more charming than fenced in.  I think I’ve seen this tactic on one of those house hunting makeover shows.

This is such a cluster****.  I cannot believe this is what’s happening.  And I am not tagging just on NYC because I am sure it’s happening everywhere. Can we just skip the formalities and let people show up until they are gone and then keep trying?  Get the shots into arms.  Any arms. No questions asked. This validation process and drive to be “fair” is slowing it all down.  We stand a better chance at hitting the super spreaders this way.  Some 46 year who will lead to 38 infections is - better choice than an 83 year old who never leaves the house.  Yea the 83 year old is more vulnerable once they get it but in the meantime how many others could get the vaccine first in a free for all that will stop the 83 year old anyway without a vaccine?

What you are proposing will lead to Red Hats knocking 83 year olds to the ground as they rush to ME FIRST their vaccination.

But I'm just guessing.

My dad received his first dose last Friday.  They came right to his facility and did everyone at once.

I will be getting one Wednesday. A friend works for Wayne county health dept and they were seeking volunteers to man the drive thru clinics. Do it one day from 7-4, and they will give you the vaccine in return. I will find out if they still need volunteers and let anyone know if interested.I didn’t expect to be able to until the spring. I know manpower is a real issue in getting these out, especially those qualified to give the doses. This type of thing could be the way to go.  Incentive volunteers.

I got my shot yesterday.  Worked a drive thru clinic in Wayne County.  They processed about 800 people from 8-3:30, nobody had to leave their car.  There was a break around 11 with no cars.  My area of responsibility was to make sure they got the attention they needed while waiting 15 minutes after the shot.  They'd pull over and park and honk their horn if they needed attention.  Good news is nobody needed it. 

My arm is sore, much like a flu shot.  I worked out last night to keep it moving.  I couldn't sleep on that side of my body.  Other than that no issues... better than covid.  I go back in 3 weeks for another day of work and the 2nd shot.

I don't know if maybe this was the joke that the wanna be congressman was doing, but it appears what apparently was Scott Atlas's account has been deleted.  If that happened and was newsworthy I missed it.

I could be wrong, but it appears you thought this was from Gaetz. Gertz gets quite offended by that.

Yes, I did that purposefully, his tweets when Gaetz does something and he gets the heat are pretty hilarious.

About 3% of MI has gotten the first dose, according to the CDC.  If you think about the plans... doing medical personnel, first responders, teachers, nursing home, essential workers.... that’s still a long of people.  That hit me yesterday.   It’s not just cops, nurses and doctors.  It’s EMS. Dental hygienists.  Medical billers. Customs.   I already know so many people that got a dose. Maybe more than have had covid.  You get through that list and you could knock off close to 30%
