    Yep. I don't think everyone will ever do it, but I can definitely see it becoming common in big cities, especially more progressive ones.

    Nothing wrong with being hopeful but unfortunately we have too many stupid, entitled, & lazy people lurking around.

    Honestly, when Biden gets elected, maybe he can encourage people about mask-wearing when one is sick to change the culture of the United States. Or just write letters to help convince him to do it.

    I'm not positive about this, but what you've described here sounds not only dangerous and negligent, but also highly illegal. I'd be surprised if this ever happens...

    If it has happened before, then could you provide a source?

    Getting last year's flu vaccine instead of the currently available one is a terrible idea because it will likely do nothing to protect you from the potentially dangerous flu strains for this year.

    For more information about how the flu vaccine works, I suggest checking out the CDC's website. Here are a couple relevant links:
    1. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/keyfacts.htm
    2. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/nasalspray.htm
    The first link tells you general information about the flu vaccine developed for each year. Vaccines are typically either trivalent or quadrivalent, meaning that they are cocktails containing either three or four different strains of the virus, based on predictions about which strains are most likely to become most prevalent for the current year. The second link tells you more about the nasal spray vaccines, which contain live, weakened versions of four different viral flu strains.

    The CDC doesn't typically recommend one particular type of flu vaccine over another. However, as I mentioned in a previous post, there's ample evidence from the last decade or so that the nasal spray vaccines can not only build immunity to this year's dangerous flu strains, but also create a general boost in the immune system's response to other infections. It's not clear, but there's a chance that this boost could even help your body fight off the coronavirus if you get it, so it might be worth considering over the other types of flu vaccines that are available.

    Think we might owe Rin an apology for saying she was overreacting.

    "Religious liberty"? What bullshit.

    Note that their position here is clearly that religious liberty and LBGT rights are mutually exclusive things; in other words, you can't be a Christian according to Thomas/Alito and be okay with gay marriage.

    It's obviously elevating the chosen beliefs of a certain segment of the population above the rights of another segment who were born with that status. Which is the exact same thing they did in Burwell v Hobby Lobby.

    It's just so unbelievably frustrating to see this false 'religious freedom' argument come up against same-sex marriage again. Putting one's religious beliefs in law to rule over people of all religions/no religions is like, a basic textbook violation of freedom of religion. You can't have religious freedom if the government is allowing one into law. That's so incredibly simple I shouldn't even have to say this, yet here we are... A-flipping-gain.

    What do people expect from the creatures that cherry pick the constitution to suit their needs? Freedom of (hate) speech and the right to bear arms get them creaming their pants, while freedom of religion clearly means protestant christians are the master race and if you follow one of them dirty foreign religions you can go fuck yourself. And freedom of the press has been on thin fucking ice for a while now. It's a wonder there hasn't been a second civil war already.

    Give it time. If the election ends up getting FUBAR'd, it may push this country over the edge.

    Unfortunately, my dad is the only source for this as he suspects this is what's going on in the pharmaceutical industry. He has a damn good knack for spinning the ludicrous into the plausible.

    Whatever drug cocktail they put him on is definitely making him worse.

    I saw the man tweet about Columbus day and I shouldn't be surprised by his view.

    Of course the clown is a Columbus apologist.

    In order for him to get worse wouldn't he have needed a moment where he was better?

    Of course admiting crimes committed against the native americans or the slaves is radical historical revisionism, and not actual history instead of biased propaganda that he and GOP would like to be kept being taught.

    We may as well just start calling it religious fascism because they're really advocating for a two-tiered justice system where the "good" religious people always get their way.
