    As to Covid and workmens comp, you can be damm sure that in the future, insurance companies are gonna treat having had it as a pre-existing condition to deny all sorts of future treatment options, if the Repubs ever end Obama care. Lung problems, heart problems, stroke, anything they can get away with.
    Add thyroid problems- the newest thing that is coming out.

    The Univ refuses to put anything in writing or have a policy about covering C-19. But is quite willing to put someone at risk without supplying the proper PPE. And more stuff that I can't post but makes me want to puke at the hypocrisy.

      I don't think there is anything conservative about it. My parents are quite conservative but they've shown (even at the age of 82) they're more than capable of looking past their own immediate needs and seeing a much bigger picture. I welcome legit conservative debate but Hovey is offering nothing of the sort. It's borderline "Fifth Avenue Posse" thinking and extremely dangerous.

        I'm going to be completely candid. I have literally no idea what this means. I even googled it and I still have no idea what it means.

        I mean, I kind of like it and I'm not opposed to adopting it as my credo. Rufus' description, ******* sociopath, while accurate, is too common.

        But if I'm going to adopt Fifth Avenue Posse thinking as my worldview, if anyone out there can help me out with a definition, I'd be forever indebted.
        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            Wow, ok. I googled it and came up with nothing. I just assumed it was another instance of Slap Shot showing up and delivering another of his one or two line Chance the gardner quips, then disappearing again, leaving us here to scratch our head in wonder.

              The short answer is we probably do not know enough. The slightly longer answer when judging risk in pregnancy (like with medications, procedures, etc) is that we are extremely risk adverse so even if the Covid-19 risk is "low" in pregnancy, given the unknowns, you would be best to avoid contact/infection.

              • Massachusetts becomes the first state in the nation to require flu vaccinations for all students 6 months or older who attend child care, pre-school, school and college in Massachusetts to reduce the possibility of a double whammy of respiratory illnesses during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. There are medical and religious exemptions as well as kids being home schooled.

                • According to Governor Beshear, once Kentucky‘s application is approved by FEMA, it’ll become the first state in the country to offer the extra $100/week, using money from the CARES Act. I guess the money won’t start until the first week of September.

                      The wackos in my town are already losing their minds about this. But then, no one accused them of being educated or intelligent.

                          Yeah I've sworn off FB, but texts from friends have informed me that it's blown up with anti-vax hysteria.

                          I am very much against forced vaccinations in principle. But I am 100% in favor of requiring vaccinations if you want to participate in society (allowing for medical, but not religious, exemptions).

                          • So I find out today that my older brother and his wife are planning to come up from MA and spend the weekend with my parents. My father, who just had his 87th birthday today.

                            I sent my brother a rather nasty instant message. ****ing idiot.

                            • ON MY MIND: THEY BLINDED US FROM SCIENCE

                              Dr. Sonal Desai unveils the first insights from the new Franklin Templeton-Gallup research project on behavioral response to COVID-19.

                              https://www.franklintempletonnordic....m-science.html

                              Well no sh*t

                              The first round of our Franklin Templeton–Gallup Economics of Recovery Study has already yielded three powerful and surprising insights:
                              1. Americans still misperceive the risks of death from COVID-19 for different age cohorts—to a shocking extent;
                              2. The misperception is greater for those who identify as Democrats, and for those who rely more on social media for information; partisanship and misinformation, to misquote ThomaDolby, are blinding us from science; and
                              3. We find a sizable “safety premium” that could become a significant driver of inflation as the recovery gets underway.

                                After the last few days I have pretty much lost faith in the population in general. Some really sucky sh1t happening here that I can't post but it has reinforced my opinion that some people are despicable, arrogant and have no conscience. No one who has a Hovey attitude should be allowed to be in charge. And they are
