Sciencey… March 5, 2021

The news came this week that the Arizona House, which has a Republican majority had voted to ‘allow business to ignore local mask ordinances’. In other words to allow businesses to use them or not or demand those who visited businesses to wear them or not.

Why so?

The bill’s sponsor, Republican Rep. Joseph Chaplik of Scottsdale, reasons that it’s a matter of individual freedom and besides that, society has managed to survive other viral outbreaks without having to cover their faces.

Huh…

Take AIDS, for example.

“We heard about that in the ‘80s,” Chaplik told his colleagues during a Wednesday floor debate on the bill. “Yet no masks were required.”

” Five states — Texas, Mississippi, Iowa, Montana and North Dakota — have ended, or soon will end, statewide mask mandates, despite the looming threat of COVID-19 and highly transmissible variants.

They’re joining 11 other states — Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Tennessee — that never required face coverings statewide.”

” When asked about mask mandates ending in Texas and Mississippi, Joe Biden accused the governors of “Neanderthal thinking”. Mississippi governor Tate Reeves swiped back on Twitter, saying “I guess I just think we should trust Americans, not insult them”.”

1% to 3% of me is offended by Biden’s attempted insult.

California is starting to re-open schools, I expect the rates to increase two to four weeks following re-opening.

The concern is the opportunity for new mutations to the spike protein that all the vaccines target. Hopefully the govts will institute an accelerated testing regimen for new mRNA vaccines to target these epitope escape variants.

Did ya’ll see the story of the woman who invented the mRNA vaccine technology was pushed out of academia because of politics?

A distinguishing feature of Republican governors rolling out vaccines has been ensuring that their own electoral bases get them first (see: Florida). This is murder, if outbreaks are being enabled.

That’s a typical response from Reeves. Surely if Biden was insulting anyone (and it sits ill for Republicans to complain about that after the last four years – full stop) it was the governors, not Americans.

The 6-3 Supreme Court ruling striking down CA’s religious ceremony restrictions is quite scary and it portends that religious freedom will be used by this court to strike down anything that the Biden administration does get passed.

Who will Pelican Brief the court for the Left now? a wag cheekily asks.

Are ye following the Voting Rights Act shenanigans with GOP states passing laws that end up suppressing groups that are more likely to vote DEM? If the SC backs the states up then the US is heading into Atwood territory and it is time to leave before one has to flee.
