My Dad’s health care provider called just now. They want him to come in tomorrow to get his COVID-19 vaccine. I will be taking him. Yes!

Harris Health is running out of vaccines today. 

At least we know that help is on the way and we don’t have to be dependent on the bozo leadership out of our state government. Those bozos are more interested in city council budgets than my health and yours. Think about that.

President Joe Biden is leading the way.  It is the way it should be.  President Biden is putting a priority on COVID-19.  That’s the plan.  It is comforting to know that the federal government is finally taking charge.  It is also refreshing that we can now believe in the COVID-19 White House briefings. 

If Donald Trump had won reelection and Mike Pence was the tie breaking vote in the U.S. Senate, do you really think Sen. Mitch McConnell would give a sh_t what Sen. Chuck Schumer thinks?

Commentary gets emails from Republicans and some of their candidates.  I don’t unsubscribe because every now and then I want to see what they are saying.  Here is a part of one from yesterday:

In less than one day, Joe Biden has already undone many of President Trump’s – and the Republican Party’s – accomplishments that put AMERICA FIRST. Here are just a few of the many Executive Actions that he signed yesterday:

  • Construction at the Border Wall has STOPPED.
  • Illegal Immigrants will be counted in the United States Census.
  • The Keystone Pipeline has been CANCELED → thousands of jobs will be destroyed.
  • Rejoined the World Health Organization that helped China cover up their terrible handling of the Coronavirus.
  • Reversed the travel ban to keep radical terrorist groups out of the United States.
  • And, so much more…

I guess President Biden is doing A-okay.

Pretty cool stat.

The Eddie Mathews total under President Eisenhower surprised me. In case you didn’t know, Mathews played for the Astros in 101 games in 1967.

Mike Trout, Wille Mays and Mathews only have one dinger each in career post season play.

Ralph Kiner never played in a post season game. 

All the others had multiple post season dingers.

A sad stat is that Mike Trout is considered by many to be the best player in MLB today.  He has only played in one post season series.  In fact, he’s never won a game in the post season.  The Angels got swept by the Royals in the 2014 ALDS.

Now you know.

Carlos Correa wants to be an Astro forever.  Sign him, please.
