Thanks Tony for food post. Those are some tasty looking dishes. I'm on a whiskey fast this morning. Damn Chycoms. Coaches is no longer on 103rd. They moved to College and Metcalf. And if you didn't know the owner was murdered by a black racists serial killer. Regarding the purposed Doxing law. If it is public information, then it's public information. That being said, people would shit bricks if they knew what companies are selling information about you. Legal stuff and not-so legal stuff. For a couple few of bit of a bitcoin you could get where Stacey bought those fancy urban freedom fighter boots, if she used a credit card or she texted her comrades if they made her butt look big. Welcome to 2021, taco Tuesday.

on the kansas side i do know that the veterans administration is in the process of making appointments for veterans 75 years of age and older now.

that is veterans 75 or older only - no spouses, other family members, etc.

i'll assume for the time being that their medical personnel have already been given the first dose - not sure about that.

kansans assume that they're better than other people, but the vaccination fiasco shows that they're dumb.

Anonymous said...

The vaccination confusion and incompetence is nationwide, do if Kansas is number fifty per capita, they're really number one nationwide in demonstrating incompetence and lack of preparedness.

Wichita is better organized than Johnson County. They have a web site.

Johnson County still seems lost.

The Kansas Heath Department has spent the last how many months berating Kansans for not doing what they are told, yet when the time comes for them to perform they are completely unprepared. This is typical left-wing incompetence and buffoonery, covered with a big helping of unearned self-aggrandizement just to make it sting all the more.

Well, even if you don't like Bollier's politics, she would make a great Kansas vaccine czar.

How about it, Governor Kelly?

Anonymous said...

The health positions are sinecures in normal times and mediocrity is the rule.

When there's a pandemic, you need somebody not mediocre, somebody smart and savvy.

That goes for Kansas, Johnson County, and Kansas City.

12:24 you're wrong public health is a vital service as proven by what we see now, a communicable disease pandemic, which we see how much it sucks when the public health system we take for granted gets confronted with a crisis and the underfunding of that public health system, chickens come home to roost

re the doxxing law. first comment is right they are public info. so the law needs to be narrow so not used by police to harass people like journalists. also if i take a picture of a cop car parked in front of a house is that doxxing? like the take home car so you don't have to buy gas you can stick your commute on the taxpayers.

5:00. This is a pandemic that never was except in the minds of a public health system run by mediocrities who desperately wanted to feel relevant for once. All we had were mistakes, overreactions, and outright lies to keep the farce going as long as possible. We would be better off without a public health system empowered to address communicable diseases as people can do a better job just taking care of themselves.
