Our AC unit just developed a leak in its condenser coil. That’s an expensive replacement. But, because of COVID, HVAC parts are in short supply. Supplier says they don’t know when the backorders will be through.
So we have to put a bunch of money into a bunch of refrigerant that’s going to just leak out into the atmosphere. Seriously, this shit is expensive – we put $800 worth into it, three weeks ago. And it’s gone.
Hurry up, fall.
Kevin is puzzled.
So what’s the problem? We know that the vast majority of Republicans don’t really care about the budget deficit, so it can’t be that. Relieving the financial stress on millions of voters would surely be good for Donald Trump, so partisan politics can’t be the answer. Everyone in Congress represents a state that desperately needs help, so it can’t be a geographic thing.
And yet Republicans refuse to support a serious stimulus/rescue plan. I really, truly don’t understand. Is it just habit? Automatic opposition to anything Democrats like? What on earth is the problem?
They’re going to use Dems’ refusal to vote for the stimulus bill in campaign ads.
They’re not going to say “Senator Foo wouldn’t vote for COVID19 stimulus relief because he thought it was too skimpy.” They’re just going to say the first part.
Van Morrison thinks social distancing is a hoax.
First day of school in Paulding County, GA.
It’s like they looked at their recent summer camp outbreak and said “Hold My Beer!”
A lot of people are about to learn a hard lesson.
Universal Masking to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Transmission.
Time to kill that dangerous bit of folklore that says it only protects people from the wearer – and not only because it gives people the excuse to say “I ain’t sick so I don’t need no mask!”.
Went to the hardware store, the grocery store and the booze store. For the first time, everybody was wearing a mask. In fact, all of the stores required them.
Only took three and a half months.
The mantra about the mask is “It doesn’t protect you from other people, it protects them from you!” Mask wearing is supposed to be altruistic rather than preventative.
People take this to mean they don’t need to wear a mask if they don’t feel sick. Yet you can have C19 and not know it for days, or you might never know it. So, people won’t be wearing masks when they need them because they don’t know they need them.
So, the mantra should be: masks stop transmission.
Don’t make mask wearing conditional on the health of the wearer. Don’t make it altruistic. Just require it.
