Link Love

My county hit a record high number of cases today and then announced it would no longer be investigating reporting or collecting data on local covid case rates, hospital rates, etc. and only state level information will be available. Confirmed cases on the last day of reporting: 400/100k, backlog: 3,000/100k.

Check out revanche’s twitter feed for more tweets about the way forward given the huge curtails on voting rights.  Celeste P also has some great ideas.

I do wonder why 100% of the focus is on Democrats to protect voting rights.  This should be a non-partisan issue– all US citizens over the age of 18 should have the right to vote.  But then I think about what happens to Mitt Romney’s family if he steps off the Republican talking point platform.  We need to actually get out and prosecute harassment!  Or… (and this is more sickening) the Democrats need an army that they can send out to harass Republican senators (and Manchin and Sinema who might as well be Republican), just like Republicans do.  I think Michelle Obama was wrong– when government isn’t working, then sometimes you need to go low.

Florida’s top public health official in Orlando, Dr. Raul Pino, was placed on administrative leave after sending an email to his employees urging vaccination against the coronavirus.

I want this as an emoji.  (I did not buy the stamp because I have nothing to use it for, but one day if it’s in stock when I need another $6 to get free shipping…)

    Thank you. Discouraging but also a reminder that we MUST persevere and continue to push for people to vote in primaries AND in the elections this fall.
    Verify your voter registration and ensure it has not been cancelled.

    I am almost glad that it doesn’t look like jetpens is overflowing with great stamps or I’d be in real trouble. I didn’t know that they had stamps at all. I only like the one you picked of that entire series.
    The state of politics makes me want to spit. But if we can get just a few more Senators who are actually progressive and not actively harmful trash bags like Manchin and Sinema…. Maybe! Maybe things might be better?
