The crazy days of Autumn are here and quickly growing, while some #Republicans keep trying while innocent Americans keep dying.

Do we know who is paying the tab for others to take the lead in a @GOP race to destroy the fiber of #USA Democracy? The larger question is why and who is forcing these insane #Republicans who appear intent in killing innocent #Americans on their fast lane to the bottom?

It’s another dangerous lie that kids don’t catch #COVID. Our school teachers are so worried why have you told them to scrap bubbles, mask-wearing, and social distancing when cases of the delta variant are at their peak. Why can’t our kids get vaccinated?

Those who are unwilling to sacrifice a small part of their quality of life and daily comforts for the good of our country seem to be making the loudest noise right now. But the statistics show that they have never been in the majority.

The folks who are fully vaccinated,may be excited about gathering with their family and friends again. They might even be planning a vacation. But there are still nagging questions about how long protection from the coronavirus vaccines will last. For instance, will your shot wear off gradually or suddenly? Will you need a booster

It was going to be a new beginning with relative normalcy. However, it turned into a politicized, anxiety-provoking experience.

Breakthrough infections. Increased transmission. New mask recommendations and mandates. The #Delta variant is fueling #COVID-19 cases across the world and raising questions about what this all means for the course of the pandemic. It was first detected in India in March, and it now accounts for more than 93 percent of sequenced coronavirus cases in the USA.

Given the severity of the Delta variant, the USA health officials from CDC have once again asked everyone - unvaccinated and vaccinated - to use a mask indoors in high-risk areas - which is most of the country. The virus does not distinguish between countries, Remember and do not forget.

Doubts continue to mount about the Russian Sputnik V COVID vaccine's efficacy dissipated somewhat last year within Scientists.

The technology used for Sputnik V was reportedly similar to the approach from Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca. The Russians reported It uses adenoviruses, essentially cold viruses, as vectors to ferry genetic instructions for the coronavirus-like protein to the body’s cells, causing the immune system to makes antibodies to this protein and thereby conferring protection.

Last night, I was channel surfing and stopped to watch #MSNBC’s @Lawrence on cable TV. O’Donnell, whom I had met years earlier when Lawrence was a guest on The McLaughlin Group program I was co-producing. On last night's show  Lawrence was interviewing Aaron Sorkin and Sasha Baron Cohen about their award-winning film.

The tumultuous year 2020 framed what promises to be one of the most challenging year-end seasons in recent memory.

With the pandemic still disrupting our daily lives, high rates of joblessness, the echoes of a divisive election cycle, and newfound urgency driving national discourse on civility. Front-line and health care workers are American heroes.

Anyone with intelligence knows that #COVID restrictions are for the benefit of family, friends, and neighbors, so everyone can stay alive.

However, some are saying that enforcing these rules infringes on human rights, but without them, there will be no humans left on earth.

Following the simple public health guidelines will keep us out of ICU but refusing them will not ensure that we will ever see you again.

Please wear a 😷 mask and forget about how it looks. Common sense proves that is better to feel great than to look 👀 good.
