I have heard Covid-19 depresses your sense of smell and sense of taste which will affects your appetite which could be a good thing in your case. Think of it as belonging to a health-club without all the sweat and exercise. This should give you more time to write your porn novels...Right, Selena Montgomery?

Get used to it because the vax weakens your immune system and you will continue to catch it over and over again. Plus you are now susceptible to coming down with other diseases that your weakened immune system can not defend against anymore. Better get a monthly booster to make sure you die within 3 years instead of 10.

I got Covid 1.0 original, declined the shot, and have been around so many people who have had Covid repeatedly after vaccination I lost count. In fact, last month, I drove in a car for four hours with 3 vaccinated people who ended up having Covid a couple days later, one pretty sick. It’s obvious to me that the vaccine does little and probably makes it where you never get proper immunity even if you catch Covid. Don’t get on the treadmill!

This must be bad because when Stacey, Georgia's shadow governor, gets a bellyache, she hurts all over. When one is as far overweight as she is, one is at risk of all kinds of minor ailments that might become major quickly. The best advice would be for her to lose the carbs and get back to writing that softcore porn. Whoever told her to get political was lying to her.

The Labor Department released the inflation report Wednesday and while any fair-minded person can tell the economy is far from looking up, President Joe Biden has well and truly embraced Orwellian dystopian doublethink and, instead of saying “2+2=5,” declared 8.5 equals zero. While holding a ceremony Wednesday to sign the PACT Act that, in part, addresses the healthcare needs of veterans who suffered illness or injury from exposure to burn pits, Biden attempted to draw a win on the consumer price index (CPI) coming in at 8.5 percent for the month of July. That number was indeed a drop from

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was projected to win her primary in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, setting up a likely third term in the House for a progressive member who has proven to be a GOP lightning rod since entering Congress. NBC and CNN both called the race shortly before 11:30 p.m. EDT. The race proved unexpectedly close, however, with her Democratic opponent Don Samuels trailing her by only a few percentage points. A member of the “Squad,” a progressive group of Democrats in the House, Omar became the first Somali-American to be elected to Congress in 2018, in addition to

President Joe Biden's Tuesday remarks at a signing ceremony for the CHIPS and Science Act were punctuated by extremely heavy, repeated coughing. The speech marked Biden's second public appearance since returning to normal work following a two-week COVID-19 isolation. The president's physician, Kevin O'Connor, informed reporters that Biden had developed a "loose cough" during his rebound infection, although the symptoms dissipated throughout the week. (Tweet) The cough persisted throughout Biden's remarks and eventually forced him to blow his nose and repeatedly take sips of water from a glass at the podium. "Excuse me," the president said during one such outburst.
Most electric vehicles won’t qualify

DETROIT — A tax credit of up to $7,500 could be used to defray the cost of an electric vehicle under the Inflation Reduction Act now moving toward final approval in Congress. But the auto industry is warning that the vast majority of EV purchases won’t qualify for a tax credit that large. That’s mainly because of the bill’s requirement that, to qualify for the credit, an electric vehicle must contain a battery built in North America with minerals mined or recycled on the continent. And those rules become more stringent over time — to the point where, in a

In his first 18 months in office, he traveled to Delaware 46 times and to Camp David 18 times.

As recently as 2012, Iowa was basically a Democratic state that occasionally voted Republican. The political legacy of former Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin was still a very big deal. Three of Iowa's five congressmen were Democrats. Iowa had a very socially conservative Republican tradition, but it also had a strong left-wing populist Democratic tradition.

When the FBI raided Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago, it didn’t just senselessly root through the former President’s files, crack open his safe, and snatch up boxes of documents to confiscate for whatever anti-Trump investigation they have going on. Though all that seems to have happened during the banana republic-like raid, the FBI did something else, something even more horrific: it rooted through Melania Trump’s clothes, rifling through her outfits and underwear in what can be interpreted as nothing other than a gross attempt at humiliating the former president and his family.

Of all agencies in the government, this one probably has the most accurate and up-to-date files on every taxpayer, which is no surprise. It was seen as the most hated agency in America for legitimate purposes, though the FBI and DOJ might have supplanted them given the recent raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago. Still, the IRS becoming secret police might no longer be a joke. The page was taken down for problematic copy regarding the special agent positions,

On its jobs page is a listing of vacancies for special agents to be placed around the country to root out financial fraud. But these are opening for more than just financial experts: They will also be armed. Among the job requirements listed: “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”
