I’ve been quiet, mainly because I’m still dealing with the fallout of yesterday’s (false) fire alarm. And it wasn’t like I was clear of the effects of the actual evacuation, either. This stuff can linger, and the old incident just got a fresh shot of life.

I’ll do what I can about tomorrow, but I’m just not up to posting creating two articles for tomorrow. I’m at my limit.

(CNN)Missouri must expand Medicaid to low-income residents, the state Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Thursday, finding that a state ballot initiative that voters approved last year was constitutional.
The decision overturned a lower court ruling that said the ballot measure approving expansion had violated state law.
“The court has said the law is very clear, and that sends a very clear message to both the governor and the legislature that they need to get on with implementation,” said Chuck Hatfield, a partner at Stinson law firm and one of the attorneys who brought the current suit, stressing that the decision was 7-0.
The Medicaid expansion, which was supposed to take effect on July 1, was blocked by Republican Gov. Mike Parson, who said in May that the state could not proceed because lawmakers had not appropriated funding. More than 275,000 low-income Missourians could gain coverage under expansion.

Yeah until all the unvaccinated mutate themselves a super deadly version and the lockdown starts all over again, along with all new vaccines and new trials, then a new round of anti-vaxxers and we’ll do it all over again and again.

If everyone got vaccinated, theoretically, it would made covid a lot easier to kill.

Ok guys, I think I’ve decided the MNF game against the Giants is gonna be the one. Question? Would anybody be willing to pick me up at my AirBNB in Raytown and drop me off after the game in exchange for me paying for the parking? Probably works out cheaper for me instead of paying UBER 10X surge pricing, and you save $40 on the game. Seems a fair trade

These players are also venting about the lack of pushback by the player’s association on this decision without questioning why that might be. There are still players out there that don’t even know what vaccines do and are still staunchly anti-vax.

It is in their union contract that no team will be played if the game is forfeit.

Now it will be interesting if one team tries to sue the other for lost wages.

I don’t get the mindset that some people have fallen into. People will find different points to argue about no matter how many times they are proven wrong. Why the stance against vaccines? I used to just laugh at conspiracy theorists. I never thought their ideas would go mainstream.

Starting to see why I rant and rail against CT thinking?

Let me put it this way: To a CT thinker, absence of evidence is evidence of something nefarious. It’s inherent to the whole mindset, and I’d bet that there are still people out there that are convinced that a 757 didn’t hit the Pentagon, because they saw news pix that didn’t show much wreckage.

No evidence? Then it must have been a missile. There couldn’t possibly be any evidence, you see – they saw pictures that proved there wasn’t enough wreckage for it to be a 757. The same for Apollo hoaxers; they know it was a hoax, so any evidence to the contrary must have been faked.

Circular logic at its finest.
