The Evangelical Election Meltdown

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Mrs.B Nov 15, 2020. 4 Replies

Seth offers us several silly, outrageous, ridiculous, disgusting examples of some evangelicals' reaction to Trump's loss. No wonder his crowds look and sound so vulgarly. There is no use in trying to reason with such hysteria.Continue

Nice Comment

Comment was by Mrs.B on Wednesday

Yes, I've had some notifications up to 5 times for the same post, often hours apart.

Temporary yes, but a necessity for now until vaccines are world wide.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on Wednesday

Mrs.B I think I agree with you that having to use a vaccine passport is no hardship, but I would want a guarantee that was temporary. We use vaccine passports when we travel to another country.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on Wednesday

Mrs.B oddly enough just recently I've been getting repeat notifications sometimes hours apart. Annoying or what.

Comment was by Mrs.B on Tuesday

You know, with things the way they are, I'd agree with showing vaccine proof to get me where I wanted to go!

Comment was by Mrs.B on Tuesday

I answered that news report below Stephen, don't know why I got a second notice of your post today.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on Tuesday

                     Vaccine passport 

There have been suggestions in the English press of a possible future use of a vaccine passport which you would have to show if you wanted to enter a pub or restaurant. Take-up of the vaccine won't be compulsory but if you wanted to live a normal life you would have to prove you've taken the vaccine. What would be your opinion of such a law.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on Tuesday

Mrs.B Early trials of real-life data coming from Israel and Scotland suggests that Four weeks after receiving the initial dose, the Oxford jab appeared to reduce a person's risk of hospital admission by 94%.

"Those who received the Pfizer jab had a reduction in risk of 85% between 28 and 34 days after the first dose."

"Data for the two jabs combined showed that among people over the age of 80 - who are at high risk of severe disease - the reduction in risk of hospital admission was 81% four weeks after the first dose."

Comment was by Joan Denoo on Tuesday

We set performance criteria for doctors, lawyers, dentists, teachers, lab technicians; why are we unable to set performance criteria for elected federal, state, and local government officials? Surely there are job descriptions for these systems of power! 

Fancy words, generous donations, and outrageous promises do not pass muster for leadership. Each position has responsibilities; each job has specific tasks to perform, and clear, concrete, specific, definable, and measurable outcomes can be defined. Great leadership takes on tasks at hand and makes things happen to reach specific goals. Presidents, governors, mayors, and city council members have different job descriptions, and they can be defined. 

Comment was by Mrs.B on Tuesday

It was also on tonight's news about why the holdup on approval, & what's going on.

Comment was by Mrs.B on Tuesday

Yes, we're getting those reports on our news, but it's meaningless if we don't get the vaccine, & only Pfizer, & Moderna are approved here.
