CONGRESSMAN KEN BUCK AT 12:30 to discuss the NEW spending bill being voted on today.
SO WHO IS GETTING THINGS FROM POINT A TO POINT B IN THE PANDEMIC? I am so proud of working with a company like Johnsons Storage and Moving because they are not afraid to jump in when things need to be taken care of. I'm talking to Don Hindman about how Johnsons is working to move needed equipment around the country to address the needs of the health care community during the pandemic at 1pm. If you need moving help, click here!
SO FACEBOOK IS CENSORING PEOPLE WHO DARE TO VEER FROM THE DOGMA When it comes to events protesting the continuing shutdown of our economy anyway. They've decided they will censor posts about such events, under the guise of keeping everyone safe. I personally believe they didn't like being on the hot seat during the last election cycle and are sucking up the government, but that's just me. THERE IS AN OPTION. I'm talking to Matt Knoedler from CaucusRoom.com about why you should consider THEM to be the BEST alternative for Facebook for right leaners. Join by clicking here!
ADAM HOUSLEY IS A JOURNALIST AND A WINEMAKER And if you don't follow him on Twitter here, you are missing out on some SOLID reporting on covid AND Benghazi, which is back again. He's also got a winery in California, so you KNOW what THAT means! The Wine Yogi Kristal Alfonso joins me at 2 for a wine tasting and interview with Adam Housley!
REMEMBER WHEN THE ACLU CARED ABOUT CIVIL RIGHTS? The ACLU is certainly not the organization it used to be that defended horrible people whose Constitutional Rights had been abridged by the government. This column rightly points out that the ACLU has gone totally silent on the government forcing people out of work and arresting mothers at playgrounds with their children. Oh, they've been active on behalf of PRISONERS who want out of jail because of coronavirus, but not the rest of us. For shame on them all.
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT LOCKDOWNS And this political science to hard data from around the country and used it compare states who didn't lock down with those who did. New York aside, because it is a complete outlier, the evidence is just not there to justify locking down the state or the country. Read the whole thing here, but be warned, it will infuriate you.
HOW ABOUT A LITTLE STARGAZING? I have to thank young listener Adam (he's 12) for sharing this with me. Fiske Planetarium is doing online star gazing! And they have it broken out by age group! So cool!
THAT REPORT ABOUT SWEDEN REACHING HERD IMMUNITY IN TWO WEEKS? NOT SO FAST... The scientists have RETRACTED the report the day after it was released (I shared it on yesterday's blog). I will keep watching Sweden and letting you know if they are getting it right or now.
ALPACA'S BRING JOY TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD
WHAT BAKING PARENT HASN'T SEEN THIS ALMOST HAPPEN? But this mom didn't see it fast enough.
JOHN STOSSEL EXPLAINS CORONAVIRUS OVERREACH
ANOTHER REASON DOGS RULE AND CATS DROOL Unlike cats, which have PROVEN to be infected with coronavirus, dogs are being trained to SNIFF out infections!
OBLIVION ON THE HIGH SEAS A couple who was sailing across the Atlantic finally got to the Caribbean after shoving off in February only to find the world in lockdown because of coronavirus. How lovely for them!
MY FRIEND KYLE'S PODCAST CAN HELP YOU STAY POSITIVE And if you need a fifteen minute mental boost check it out by clicking here. He does very occasionally curse, fyi.
MOST PEOPLE IN THE HOSPITAL FROM CORONAVIRUS HAVE OTHER HEALTH CONDITIONS And this is another reason to maintain a health weight and fight those sedentary lifestyle PREVENTABLE conditions like obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. People with those conditions, especially high blood pressure, are the ones dying and it's not even close.
HOW THE MEDIA HAS MADE THIS WHOLE THING WORSE This is 100% correct. Read it.
THIS WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH, JUST WATCH IT A guy got some fake teeth for fun and his dog stole them.
NOW WATCH A DOCTOR PLAY AVE MARIA AS ONE OF HIS COLLEAGUES IS RELEASED FROM THE COVID WARD
WOW, HARVARD IS NOT TAKING THE GRANT MONEY AFTER ALL And they should never have been given over 8 million taxpayer dollars in the first place. Trump rightly pointed out they are sitting on a 40 BILLION DOLLAR endowment fund and they've now been suitably shamed into not taking it.
REMEMBER DE BLASIO'S SNITCH LINE? It was flooded with pictures of genitalia and obscenities and has been disabled for the time being. Heh.
IS THIS WHAT AIR TRAVEL COULD LOOK LIKE IN A POST CORONAVIRUS WORLD? Yes, it looks cool if you're traveling alone. It is NOT cool if you're traveling with children. I sure hope this leads to more space on a plane, but I doubt it.
