We have vaccines. But a scary variant has emerged. Democrats have passed big legislation. But the forces of authoritarianism are on the horizon.
This new variant is not good news but certainly premature as it could take a couple of weeks to determine if it is a problem. This could be a news dump to manipulate the markets, by unscrupulous characters that sometimes manage to get their bad news out in order to manipulate the markets, so
we'll have to see. Now, it was questioned by oil market people if Biden's attempt to lower oil prices
would work; now a $17/barrel drop has occurred, I believe he has been successful and markets are reacting, not just to the variant, but to much lower commodity prices. The stock market will take a hit but we'll start to see lower prices. Checkmate Biden, but the media will never give him credit, but the voters will.
Sadly, Covid ain't over. My sister, thrice vaccinated, got a breakthrough infection. A friend's family had a similar situation. I am spending the holidays through the winter into next spring isolated, just like last year, not with my family, wearing a mask or two when I go out, and gloves which help protect my hands from germs and from drying out from too much sanitizer. Plus winter is always bad for older people like me and anyone with compromised immune systems in terms of colds, the flu and pneumonia, not to mention the latest strains of Covid. So please take care, wear your masks and practice social distancing. We all must continue to stay safe and strong so we can beat The Big Lie and the neo-Nazi RepubliKKKans.
I agree with everything you said Michelangelo. We have a ton of things to be thankful for and I just wonder when the media is going to get it. They continue their stupid rhetoric which only puts the country in further danger. As far as the gas price issue, I would only add that Putin has to be included with MBS in trying to make Joe look bad. He wants Cheetolini back in WH as bad, if not more than the Saudis because it means that he will control to have more control over our country. We really need people to continue to remember the Mueller investigation and what was swept under the rug by Barr. Enjoy your weekend!
Yes, we have many ‘Issues,’ but also answers if we can allow Science, Government Experts, writ large.
