    You Need To Vote!

    You Need To Vote!

    No matter who your candidate in the Democratic primary was, DO NOT concede your vote. YOU SHOULD VOTE. YOU NEED TO VOTE in order to ensure Trump is a one term president. If you don't vote, you're not just abstaining — you're weakening the votes of those who believe in the same things you do. So go vote in November.

    Hydroxychloroquine

    Hydroxychloroquine

    Trump has continually peddled the lie that the drug Hydroxychloroquine has been proven to help combat COVID-19. However, the science is not yet there to support that, and Trump lying that it is is potentially fatally dangerous to those who listen to him.

    CDC Revisits Face Mask Use for the General Public

    CDC Revisits Face Mask Use for the General Public

    The Center for Disease control is revisiting its policy on the general public wearing masks when they leave the house. 

    Countries such as the Czech Republic and South Korea have significantly reduced the spread of COVID-19 by widely using masks in public. According to the Department Head of Chemistry & Aerosol Physics at the Czech Academy of Sciences, a simple at home face mask can prevent up to 100% of the spread of potentially infected microdroplets. 

    NPR said it perfectly, “many people who are infected with the virus have no symptoms - or only mild symptoms. What this means is that there's no good way to know who's infected. You may be inadvertently shedding the virus every time you talk with someone, such as a grocery store clerk.” 

    There are a lot of great youtube tutorials on how to make a mask at home. These at home masks need to be washed frequently and its important to note which side of the mask has been exposed to the outside.

    The census determines the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives. 
    The census determines the way state legislative districts will be redrawn for the next decade.
    There is no citizenship question on the 2020 census.

    There are only two days left (March 30th and 31st) before the deadline to fill out the census. So go fill out one for you and your household now.

Dishonest Podcast

Notice how they how they don’t quote the part Donald Trump says that’s a lie. At my hospital doctors are treating Covid19 patients with hydroxychloroquine. They’re more concerned with attacking Trump than saving lies. At my hospital proning patients is also life saving. Has anyone heard that? Don’t listen to Fauci. Listen to doctors actually treating these patients.
