I got my first dose of the yesterday.

I got it at a CVS.

If any of you are trying to get an appointment and having trouble, you can try cvs.com.

I don't know if it will always be the case, but right now everyone who goes there is getting Moderna.

Also, here are a couple tips for navigating their site:

When you get to the point where it shows a bunch of cities, you must click in to see more options.

Do not abandon the search if all the cities seem too far away.

It's at that point that you need to click in, and it will open up more options for all the cities that have openings.

And just like other sites doing this, refreshing often will help when it seems like appointments are being added but you keep missing out on them.

They do get scooped up quickly when they drop in, and you can see that happening in real time.

This can be an uncomfortable or difficult conversation for some. It is, however, incredibly important and incredibly necessary.

I recently had my first colonoscopy. They removed polyps which I just learned were benign. (Phew)

What I wanted to share was information relayed by my doctor in his letter about the results.

"The type of polyp removed is referred to as 'adenoma.' This type of polyp, when not removed can grow larger over many years and has the potential to turn into a colon cancer."

Due to that sentence, I felt the need to do a .

Amazing how Ron Desantis is crying about the "weaponizing" of the federal government against the GOP when he gladly weaponized his state government against Disney World.

Did they walk in with ten boxes of evidence? Pretty sure that's all on film.

Not to worry. I'm sure GOP leadership and right wing media will demand he gets protection like they did for SCOTUS judges who got visitors with signs and colored chalk.

Waiting for Republicans to scream in Congress about how judges need extra protection from....oh wait. How embarrassing.

I'm not thanking Joe Biden since high gas prices weren't his fault to start with, but since Republicans blamed him, they really should thank him for the fall.

DOJ investigations aren't run by popularity contest.

Yes, the right and the far-right are screeching on the internet and in the media. That was to be expected. Funny thing about the right and the far-right: they are the law-and-order crowd, but only until the law-and-order knocks on their door. Then they want to defund it.

It's all part of the same goal. On the GOP’S part, the more faith and trust in institutions is shaken, and by extension, U.S. democracy and government, which is their aim and objective, the better for them. They see it as justification for power grabs.

This needs to repeatedly be called out by the media as such and efforts to combat this must be consistently put front and center. Trumpers are too weak and corrupt to do it, so it's up to the rest of us.

@SteveRogers Good luck getting a Republican to thank him for anything, even something that is to his credit.

@TonyStark Is Council Bluffs the town where the rally was held, or a description of what the TFG people are doing?

GOP reaction was normalized on last night's ’s NBC News and I'm sure many others. They just reported Republicans’ bad faith reactions straight and said nothing about the undercurrent of violence, threat, and stochastic terrorism.

Media’s ginning this up.

Spending more time on reaction to the raid, than what the raid itself means.

Only negative Trumpers' reactions get covered, yet millions more are thrilled.

Posing questions like “is this bad for country?”

Describing declassification wrong. Can’t immediately happen. Starts a process.

Even this WaPo story has a picture of them when the article is about not amplifying them. I'm sure Jennifer Rubin didn't pick that picture, so I'll replace it with another.

Is pretty funny that it is true that Trump told everyone he got raided. Otherwise, it wouldn't be out there. Some genius

Anyways, let it fly.

The cognitive dissonance needed to keep supporting Trump in the face of undeniable evidence of his crimes will cause his people to lose their shit in a myriad of fucked up ways and we can expect the next few months to be an epic shitshow of Trumpist temper tantrums.

Doesn't help that the right and their shitty platforms won't moderate against it and that Trump and even Senators like Marco Rubio are out there winding it up.

Republican talking heads& politicians are pouring gasoline on the fire and investing in marshmallows.
