More than three-quarters of Americans still feel there’s at least some risk from the COVID-19 pandemic in attending July Fourth celebrations—with four in 10 believing the threat is moderate to high, according to a new poll. Some 77 percent of respondents in an Axios-Ipsos poll ranked the celebrations as posing at least a small risk, with less than a quarter—23 percent—maintaining there was no risk at all.(Snip) Democrats are by far the most fearful, with more than half—52 percent—still believing Independence Day events carry a high or moderate risk, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans.


Democrats in particular are susceptible to government propaganda. Useful idiots dragging the nation through its Marxist transformation.

A friend used to have a big get together, about 30-40 people, fried chicken and all the trimmings, and guests brought salads, side dishes and deserts. It was a great day. Not last year, not this year. Totally cancelled last year. This year they have invited a very few (single digits) family members. They still haven't been to a restaurant in 18 months. Sad for them. We have been several times a week for that whole time, less six weeks when they were closed by our idiot governor. We'll be heading to the high mountains of Colorado, 'up where the air conditioning is always on'. A hot summer day might reach 80F, most are in the 70s when it is 98 to 103F down in Pueblo or Springs.

More Democrats are fearful than Republicans. And how many more Pubbies are fearful than Conservatives? Not always the same. Critical thinking comes into pale here and it's in short supply.

"Democrats are by far the most fearful"... of everything that isn't actually that scary. They revel and even wallow around in stuff that they should actually be very afraid of like Communism, CRT, anarchy, abortion on demand, gain of function experimentation, climate "science", LGBT lunacy, sexual exploitation of children, etc.

Yet we're expected to believe that travel this fourth of July will be huge which is leading to crowded flights and gasoline shortages with higher prices. So which is it? Half the people staying home, or crowded highways.

I call B.S. I have a customer base that is older and believe me they were scared out of their minds and many stayed inside for 13 months. Not anymore they are out in full force and dancing the night away. No one I know even gives in a second thought anymore. This is simply the left trying not to lose their grip on the scare mongering.

More than half of Americans are free to stay home for 4th of July then. Fear is the irrational worry about something occurring that you cannot control. They can sit at home and worry about Covid the entire weekend. They can worry about all of the people enjoying themselves and how they might possible get Covid, or might not. They can worry and be afraid for the people who continue to live and enjoy their lives without the irrational fear (especially vaccinated or people who have Covid anitbodies) of Covid. Of course, they are just as likely to get Covid hiding at home as they are going out and enjoying themselves. Stop feeding into the media generated fear. Stop being controlled by fear, the media, and those who wish to maintain their power through fear. Live your life and enjoy yourself.

A tourist from South America was attacked by a homeless person who hit him in the head with a metal pipe near Manhattan’s Port Authority Midtown Bus Terminal Wednesday. The 66-year-old man, who is from Columbia, was walking with his family at West 40th Street and 8th Avenue at 11:40 a.m. when Wayne Lawton Welds allegedly approached him from behind and whacked him on the head with the blunt object, police said. The victim’s daughter scared off Welds, 25, after the unprovoked attack, and the suspect fled into the subway, according to the NYPD.

A Black Jewish diversity chief at a nonprofit group for children’s book authors resigned amid backlash after she neglected to specifically condemn Islamophobia in a statement denouncing antisemitism. April Powers, chief equity and inclusion officer at the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, issued a statement this month saying the organization denounces “all forms of hate, including antisemitism,” citing an uptick in crimes against Jewish people. Critics apparently took issue with Islamophobia not being specifically mentioned in the statement. Ms. Powers apologized in a statement announcing her resignation Sunday, saying she “neglected to address the rise in Islamophobia, and deeply regret that omission.”

America’s most iconic youth organizations–the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the USA–have been jolted by unprecedented one-year drops in membership, due partly to the pandemic, and partly to social trends that have been shrinking their ranks for decades. Membership for the BSA’s flagship Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA programs dropped from 1.97 million in 2019 to 1.12 million in 2020, a 43% plunge, according to figures provided to The Associated Press. Court records show membership has fallen further since then, to about 762,000. The Girl Scouts say their youth membership fell by nearly 30%, from about 1.4 million in 2019

The people don’t believe Washington looks out for their interests—and it doesn’t make much difference whether “the people” are Republicans, Democrats or independents. According to a survey released Wednesday, more than three-fifths of all voters, including three-fourths of Republicans and a majority of Democrats, think that “the will of the people is no longer a consideration to leaders in D.C. when making policy or legislative decisions.” The exact numbers were 62.4% of likely voters in the 2022 midterm elections, including 76.4% of Republicans, 50.4% of Democrats and 59% of “no party / other” voters believed that Washington ignores the popular will.

Vogue, the world's fashion bible, has placed Jill Biden on her cover as the epitome of fashion. She's a "goddess," they explain. Which is a stretch, given that the first lady has sported getups like this loud red zebra print dress, or these huge-print patterned pantyhose worn with elfin spike heel ankle boots. It goes to show that its whole schtick is politics, not fashion. After all, the big fashion bible for the world's stylish somehow managed to overlook the nation's truly stylish first lady, Melania Trump, a former super-model, who not only was quite beautiful, but age-appropriate and elegant in her four years as first lady.
