Does the book identify Dick Cheney as one of the spawn of satan, or is Cheney endorsing Larouche?

Re: Corona(virus)? ITS NOT EVEN BEER DAMMIT!!!

It's abundantly clear that yelling (or clutching your pearls or clicking your tongue) at people showing vaccine hesitancy about how stupid or ignorant they are does not do anything except harden their opinion against getting the vaccines.

I would have thought having sex with your SO would have been one of the few recreational activities people would enjoy more often during a lockdown. OTOH, without parties, I suppose people would tend to be less uninhibited and take more precautions.

Is our sheep mentality is killing any chance of herd immunity? Opinion: Instead of listening to scientists and doctors, too many of us are taking medical advice from conspiracy kooks, anti-vaxxers and a former reality TV personality.

We live in a highly 'democratic' era wrt to clothing styles: Ostentatious clothing as a mark of social rank is considered gauche.

I suspect a pivot away from referencing and paying homage to Trump after the midterms. I'm just not sure how complete it might be. Whether Trump even speaks at the next convention, assuming he's not in prison, strikes me as a much more likely question than whether he's in the primaries. It depends ...
