That was the first thing I read this morning, and the words broke my heart. I don’t understand how we continue to move backwards. I’ve seen people (especially some women) celebrating this atrocity, and I don’t understand them either. Don’t they get it? After they enslave the uterus, the brain and heart aren’t all that far behind. And if you think this sounds a bit too melodramatic, then you haven’t been paying attention.

- the day after the Summer Solstice, I found out that I had
COVID. My symptoms (fever, chills, vomiting…) were horrible for about 36
hours, then things got better. A few days ago, my Piano Man became positive. His
symptoms are very mild. Most of my symptoms are gone, but I’m still tired and
my sense of taste remains… not quite right.
