Forced to swim in Florida's Covid infested waters for a couple of weeks, cross your fingers.

I’m fully on board the shun and shame covidiots train. These covidiot murderers need to feel the consequences of their actions. Ideally before they die or kill someone. So I’m all in on shun and shame. Last week I shun and shamed my brother after his being unvaccinated resulted in me having to fly to Florida from AZ to care for my Dad who needed hospitalization and now this week in rehab. My brother is in easy driving distance, but since he isn’t vaccinated not letting him anywhere near my dad.

This meant I left a wonderful health compromised husband for what will wind up being 2+ weeks and risking covid and then bringing it home to my husband. I’m considering quarantining at a hotel when I return to be super safe. I would likely have come anyway initially to make the major decisions for his care, but could have left after a week and leave brother to handle rehab.

Last week when this began and I made immediate plans to fly the next day, he called to ask what he could do. I told him ‘get your fucking shot if you ever want to see him again or go to his funeral’. Idiot said he would consider it.
Once I made it to Jacksonville (24hr delay due to weather in Dallas) he texted ‘I hope you get some rest’. I replied ‘I can live without rest I’m concerned about getting Covid because so many idiots in Florida won’t get vaccinated and I’ll take it home and kill my husband’. The next day he got the vaccinated.

So there are now soon to be two less covidiots on the loose in Florida (my holier than though Bible quoting (as long as it doesn’t restrict him from something he wants to do) hypocritical evangelical brother took his 2nd ex-wife soon to become 4th wife after his divorce to 3rd wife becomes final) with him for shots he is still 5 weeks away from being as protected as possible so no help with this current situation. Sorry for the run on sentence, I was on a rant.

I also shamed a nurse into getting his shot. While with dad in the hospital for 4 days he had one particularly wonderful nurse. Extremely caring, professional, and efficient. He anticipated needs and took care of them before I even realized Dad needed something. I asked if he was vaccinated and he said not yet. He wasn’t against the vaccine, just hadn’t done it yet. He thought he may have even had covid earlier. I spoke to him like he was my son and highlighted all the new issues with the Delta Variant. I managed to be patient with him, but firm. Later that day he came in and proudly showed me the bandaid on his arm. During his lunch break he got vaccinate.

So now up to getting 3 Floridians on their way to not dying or killing someone but damn it has come at a high personal cost. I’ll be her another week or so and will keep pushing for more.

Only one in 10 or 15 people are wearing masks in hotel, drugstore or grocery store. I wear mine everywhere and only going out when essential. No restaurants, luckily my hotel room is like an efficiency apartment.

Sometimes your wish comes true.

A day or so ago we pulled into a Pharmacy drive through. Below is the hate that we saw plastered on the vehicle in front of us. His license plate was even ANTIDEM. I told my husband I hope this asshole is here for a COVID test and not a prescription pick up.

A couple minutes later we saw him put his test kit in the COVID test box. I wanted to yell ‘why are you getting a COVID test, it’s a hoax asshole! Husband reminded me the asshole likely had guns. That and the fact his window was rolled up convinced me to not yell.

Before the maskholes, vaxholes and trumpidiots I would never have wished illness on anyone.

Here is how to contact Publix regarding Publix heiress' funding of the Jan 6 coup/ insurrection



With the help of far-right shock jock Alex Jones, a Trump-supporting heiress to the Publix fortune helped fund a January 6 rally in Washington, D.C., at which the president encouraged his supporters to walk to the Capitol and "fight like hell" in support of his made-up claims of election fraud, according to new reporting by the Wall Street Journal.

Sources told the newspaper that Julie Jenkins Fancelli, whose father founded Publix, contacted Jones and offered to help bankroll a pro-Trump event in D.C. on January 6. According to the Journal, Fancelli contributed about $300,000 of the total $500,000 cost of the rally on the Ellipse in President's Park behind the White ....

Ant Clemons and Justin Timberlake's Better Days

Their performance together is beautiful. I had not heard of Ant Clemons before. What a voice. I will look for more of his work.
