    I suppose now we wait and see if the Democrats can be bothered to govern.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Don't be ridiculous, What could possibly justify such poor treatment? They are white, male and not even liberal college students.
    The poor boys have spent the best part of a day wandering into kettles and getting maced. This will either feed their victimhood narrative or confine them to being even more online than they were before.

    This. Let's see if they are actually willing to use some of the power they have for a change.

    What's happening with the vaccine roll out in America at the moment? I've seen Cuomo has decided the stick is better than the carrot so has the incredibly progressive policy of fining hospitals for not giving jabs but also massively limiting the people who are eligible for the vaccine at any one time. It doesn't even seem like vaccine supply is likely to be a limiting factor in the city.

    Because the federal government has never had a plan states and cities have made their own. Cuomo is a moron, some places are doing that, others are doing nothing a a sparse few are actually dispensing vaccines. Philadelphia has begun some vaccine distribution for people that have underlying conditions over the age of 65, hopefully I'll be eligible in February. Its patently insane that we have no real federal guidelines for this shit. The more restrictions on who gets it the more slowly it goes out.

    I'm guessing the states have to secure all their own vaccine supplies then?

    There is some coordination on that, states and major cities have separate supply chains, but I have no idea how that even works, just that any large metro population is not sharing a plan with a farm town, or a supply pool with them. Its beyond dumb how little we know here, but like I said, Trump and company haven't governed on covid for almost a full year, it ain't happening now.

    More alarming than bad vaccine policy is the amount of healthcare workers refusing vaccinations. Ohio had something like 40 percent? Haven't looked to see if its changed, mostly out of despair.

    Thanks to Joe here, the filibuster remains, no legislation passes, only upside is we stop the Federalist Society installing grossly unqualified morons into the judiciary.

    Back-of-the-napkin maths shows that dems represent over 40 million more voters than republicans, yet barring a minor miracle will not be allowed to functionally govern. Democracy!

    Glad to see the "were powerless and can't really do anything" narrative is already in full swing.

    they weren't going to do anything regardless of joe.

    I mean I'm just being realistic and looking at the map. The same thing happened here election night and the day afterwards. Calling races an hour after polls close in razor thin margins with so many votes uncounted is just media hype think. The race is over when the votes are all counted. Unless there was a 5 point lead with like 90% reporting I'd not even consider speculating in such a hotly contested race.
    Aye, seems my cynicism might have been unwarranted. I'm ok being wrong in my hot take on this one.

    I honestly never thought I would live to see this. I'm in complete disbelief (and yes, I say that fully aware of what the last 4 years and 2020 has given us). So...when does the police come and throw rubber and mace into these clowns?

    Also, can you imagine the (force) respond to a BLM rally breaking through and storming towards Capitol? There would have been Kent State all over again, guaranteed (if not by police, then by Trump militia).

    Please don't let this be the start of something truly, irreparably, bad and tragic.
