Biden signs massive covid bill and makes a prediction
“That will make this Independence day something truly special. Where we not only mark our independence as a nation, but we begin to mark our independence from this virus.”

Hours after signing a massive partisan covid relief bill, Joe Biden made his first prime time address to the nation. In one of those rare occasions, the president was lucid and was able to flawlessly read from the teleprompter for approximately twenty minutes. In his brief address, Biden set July 4 as the goal for a return to relative normalcy. He was careful to qualify that it might happen:

“I promise I will do everything in my power. I will not relent until we beat this virus. But I need you, the American people. I need you. I need every American to do their part. That’s not hyperbole, I need you. I need you to get vaccinated when it’s your turn, and when you can find an opportunity. Help your family, your friends, your neighbors get vaccinated as well. Because here’s the point: if we do all of this, if we do our part, if we do this together, by July the 4th, there’s a good chance of you, your families and friends, will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout and a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day.”


No kidding!  By July 4th?

As far away as that is, it would certainly be better that the prediction of the man Biden told us we must all listen to:

"After months of suggesting that life could start to feel "normal" again this fall -- if the vaccine rollout worked as planned -- Fauci in an interview with  LA Times Today  this week gave a new prediction.

"Hopefully, by the time we start entering 2022, we really will have a degree of normality that will approximate the kind of normality we've been used to," Fauci said.

But by the next morning, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the White House wanted out of the predictions business.

"We want to be straight with the American public … We are not in a place where we can predict exactly when everybody will feel normal again," Psaki said in a press conference on Wednesday.

And round & round we go!


After developing a vaccine in record time, it would be tragic if it took us until July to return to normal, never mind the fall. Is anyone concerned by those estimates? I suppose we should all be grateful that our president was able to meet the low bar of delivering a coherent 20 minute speech. As for the partisan legislation that sends money to many Americans while quietly satisfying the left's wish list:

" The Congressional Budget Office estimates that $2 trillion in spending could shrink the economy by about $100 billion over the next decade, and with the national debt topping $27 trillion, our budget will have to shift over the coming years to accommodate larger and larger interest payments."

Greg Jones,

This may come as a bit of a surprise, but, "the other guy" dragged his foot on COVID19 for over a year.

He, also, denied that it was a Pandemic, down played it, blamed it on China, then, called it a Democrat "Hoax" designed to prevent him from getting re-elected.


Trump refused to wear a mask, and, forbade the WH staff from wearing them, until, he and a number of his staff became ill from the disease.

The "Donald" touted fake cures, even instructed his children to buy stock in these companies. "The Don" of NYC held indoor rallies spreading COVID19. He became known, like the President of Brazil, as "The COVID19 SPREADER."

This unhinged, unqualified non-politician, cut the funding for COVID19 research when he got in office, dismantle the American Research in China, pushed dangerous, unproven drugs, disregared his own COVID19 Taskforce's advise, because, he claimed he was a "STABLE GENIUS!"

(Highly unlikely! A "stable boy" cleaning up horse manure, but, certainly no genius! T-Rump had to hire someone to take his college entrance exam.)

In general, the "near insane, fake POTUS, real POS, behaved like a gleeful juvenile during a Worldwide, Deadly Pandemic spending much of his time on the golf course, at his own facility. Then, charging the Secret Service agents protecting him, room, board fees, etc.

That selfish, corrupt, lying CON MAN deserve no recognition. He deserved a long -term prison sentence, which is enroute.

Thanks, Vic. We deserved reconigiton for that milestone.

I know it was difficult for you to write something positive about about anyone, or, organization that is not a "CALCIFIED CONSERVATIVE."

It is inspiring to see your awakening. The realization that other people on this planet have divergent view is a tough one. It is, however, "a small step for man, a giant leap for mankind."

Good to see that we are on the same team.

Considering Michigan continues to be shorted the vaccinations promised and that MI [I can only comment on where I live, I realize it isn't the same everywhere] is only on the 65+ group and 50+ with chronic issues group... I'd be awfully surprised if I even had the opportunity to receive my vaccination BY July 4. Therefore, I truly doubt that "normal" will occur before then. Granted... all of my parents will have or already has had their vaccinations and we don't gather with friends other than my husband's boss and his wife... it's only my husband and his boss in the shop and boss's wife works from home just like I do. Therefore, no additional risks.

I believe you can take that one to the bank!

The JJ vaccine is coming from Baltimore!  I'm so proud.  Also, you need only one shot of the J&J vaccine so that will enable EVERYONE TO BE VACCINATED BY MAY 1ST.

PRESIDENT BIDEN IS REALLY GETTING THE JOB DONE!

I guess it depends on population density, here in the up north backwoods area, my wife and I both got our first shot of the Moderna yesterday, shoulder still sore, but I just turned 60 and she's 55.  She works an essential job of transit bus taking people to medical appointments and I tagged along and they said "sure you can get it too".

What I am now wondering, since most of the vaccinations are basically going to volunteering people, what is going to happen when you run out of volunteers?  And we may end up 100 million or more short of the entire population volunteering.

I’m home resting after mild so far effects a little dizziness, nausea, of my 2nd Pfizer vaccine shot.  Hopefully that will pass and the sore arm tomorrow will be the only remaining side effect. It seems that the more rural areas in Ca. are ahead of the coastal urban areas in per capita vaccinations

75% of ALL people in MI are not vaccinated. 75% of those in the current grouping, quite likely. Those under 50 are not even allowed to set up their appointments unless they work in the medical field, a teacher, or take care of those in the high risk groups.

Starting Monday (March 8), any Michigan residents age 50 and up with pre-existing medical conditions or disabilities will be eligible to make an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine. Caregiver family members and guardians who care for children with special health care needs will also be eligible to receive the vaccine.

Speaking of fines, did you know that if you have insurance they bill the insurance company $22.00 per shot, but if you don't have insurance it's free.

I would say that because you live with someone that works in the medical field, they would consider it a risk factor of sorts. There's probably loop holes for your circumstance. 

I'm only 42, my husband is 50, I'm working from home, my husband only works with one person, my son is doing school from home, the "adopted one" doesn't have a job yet, and my daughter is the only one leaving to be around others... she's been going to school for two weeks now, but she's a bit of a germaphobe to begin with and stays away from others as much as possible. There's no way that I would be able to get away with getting one right now... same with the rest of my household. I would probably get fined.

Where did you come up with that info?   The vaccine is in fact free.  It was paid for by the federal government and provided to the states free of charge.   

The only scenario I can come up with to meet your allegation is if you get the shot at someplace like CVS or Walgreens.   If that's the case, they're not charging you for the vaccine, which would be illegal, but they are likely charging for the pharmacist or technicians time which unlike public clinic type situations is a cost to the company.  Public places it's all free.

I received mine at the London Embassy thanks to the wife being a federal employee.   We both received the Moderna version and I was fine with both shots.  The wife was fine with the first, but the second was an ass kicker for her.  She had already been warned that for some reason, women often times get sick from the shot.  Fever (check), nausea (check), major headache (check, check, check), and feeling like you're run over by a train, truck, and stampeding herd of buffalo (check).   Fortunately, it was only a day, but she was totally washed out and stayed in bed sleeping the next day.
