  1. If you mean “Republican Party” then I agree completely. I don’t think the Republican Party has many conservative values any longer. They are not synonymous terms.
  2. Do you recognize the irony of describing conservatism as a fluctuating thing?
  3. I honestly am stupefied at use of the word ‘Conservatives’ in this thread. Who is this a reference to? I consider myself a conservative and have zero fear of any conservative political opinion I have being censored. The only censoring of true conservatives is being waged by the new retrumplican party.
  4. JMHO, Darwin awards may be causing you to read too much into the Darwin reference. I don’t think Darwin is a ‘deserve’ concept. It’s just cause/effect. People who go out into the rain without an umbrella will get wet. Not because they ‘deserve’ to get wet, but because that is the natural consequence.
  5. Maybe the Giants will trade the Vikes Will Hernandez and a 7th for a 6th.
  6. I was doing exercise biking and planks only Jan-March and honestly a little disappointed (other than resurfacing my abs). Since then I've added 75 push ups and arm weights to the workout, and it's more encouraging that progress is being made.
  7. Unfortunately, the only pharmacy with a searchable vax appointments tool where I am seems to have gone all in on Moderna (Thrifty White). CVS/Walgreens are a joke... all you see is no appointments available. Walmart was maddening searching for my 16 Y.O. in that you get to end of a maze and find out you aren't eligible (code for 'we only have Moderna' without saying that). It's like trying to buy a PS5. For Thrifty White, I can see 1800+ openings and each of its stores listed have only Moderna options. Was not the case 4 weeks ago when I found a Pfizer option for my 16 year old.
  8. I'm more curious on the capability. Most appointments that are accessible screen for eligibility (i.e. I was not able to make appt for my 17 year old until >16 was opened by our governor). Is it different in your state? Could you register a 3 year old?
  9. It was insane. Both me and the car I was passing came to screeching stops and managed to stay in our lanes. Out of my left periphery I see a 3rd car (who was attempting to piggy back pass behind me) sail past us both into the ditch and it somehow avoided rolling or hitting a tree. I agree not much difference 85/65 but I've gone from routinely passing 30+ cars on this remote 50 mile stretch (60 MPH) to maybe passing 3-4, and being content not passing when I find myself behind someone going 64+.
  10. I always sped and drove a bit aggressively until I had an "oh #####!" near major accident when a deer ran into the road when I was passing another car on a remote highway - kiddo in the back seat. I was 45 then and it changed me for good. I'll still pass cars going annoyingly slow but I no longer race to get places 6 minutes quicker than I'd get there driving safely.
  11. Best analogy for me is a highway and mix of sober/intoxicated drivers (who pose risks to themselves and others on the road). Vax provides an off ramp to a safe parallel highway. Personally, I'm getting myself and my family on that parallel highway. Anyone who doesn't take the off ramp needs to deal with nature and odds, and I guess that is their choice to live with. My reaction to reading future 'accident reports' will be 'it's a shame they made the poor decision to stay on that highway.'
  12. If they do this, whoever made the call to trade up to draft Love should be fired.
