Some big institutional investor dumped 15000+ BTC last week, crashed the price, liquidated all of the leveraged longs and then all the leveraged shorts got hard squeezed the past 24 hours in the run up. 
Full attack mode from institutional buyers. Something is up.

Hopefully it's I/Q's

It pretty much is

It’s more nuanced than that. For example, in our state, some of the lowest percent of vaccinated people are in areas that are very democratic by political orientation but also much poorer and a lot of minorities. Mattapan is one the lowest vaccinated communities in the state along with New Bedford and then some towns out in Berkshire county/Hamden county are behind them.

Broadbrushing things is never a good way to understand a complex issue.

OK, let's get minorities and trump voters vaccinated then. Statement adjusted

LOL, Bank is trying to make me pay $150 excise bill for a vehicle I turned in January 2020.  The City didn't send out excise tax bills last year, so a month a go I received 3 of them.  2 for my newest vehicle and a 3rd for the prior one.  I call the City and they say that since vehicle is leased thru Bank, the Bank needs to send abatement paperwork, so they can be reimbursed.  Ok, I do all that and I'm still getting paperwork demanding payment for it.  I call the Back, yep, they wanted payment over the phone, even though I've sent them proper documentation of plates/registration on new vehicle and they've filed the paperwork with the City for reimbursement.  I said the hell I'm paying you anything.  I provided you with the paperwork, you go chase the City for the money.  I have no obligation on that lease any more.  Shame on you for paying it a year and a half later without question.

Excise tax is ridiculous. I traded in my fusion in feb 2020 and it was hell to get an abatement from the city. And I didn’t see the actual money until the summer time.

The best way to reach these two divergent groups is clearly to send a bunch of government-sponsored white Millennials door-to-door lecturing and patronizing them and telling them they are killing grandma. Should be effective.

He's already been telling his people to get vaccinated. He talks about the vaccine a lot (usually in the context of claiming he invented it). I don't think he's the issue with vaccine hesitancy. I know you don't agree, but all of the Trump Fox News Boomers I know rushed to get vaccinated very early. The vast majority of those I know who are not getting vaxxed are under 40 and tend to really distrust the government (all government, not just the Biden administration). I think some of you are oversimplifying this issue a lot which is why you haven't been able to figure out yet why people keep resisting. It has little to do with Trump or Biden for most of us.

I went through the same crap as BZ, it was only like $20 so I paid it so it would just go away. 

The fact that the bank had the audacity to request the payment from me was laughable.  **** that.  The City screwed up in their paperwork from January to June the following year and sent a bill to the bank and the bank sends them the payment likely knowing full well that I have a new lease with them with the same plates on a different vehicle.  **** you.  You go chase the abatement.  I provided you with all the proper documentation that you already have.  I told them to never call me again asking for payment.  Only to say that they received the abatement.  My next call will be to a lawyer.

Mine was a little different, I don't blame you for doing what you did no matter the cost. In my case the registry messed up and no one took the blame. The $18 or whatever it was, was worth it to make it go away.

There's a lot of truth to this.

The people who watch Fox News are older and most of them are vaccinated, which is funny when you have hosts spewing anti-vaxx content. 

Percentage wise latino & black communities are the least vaccinated and they skew heavily democratic.

Most aren't the crazy anti-vaxxers you hear about though (microchipping, population control) rather it's more about being concerned about its safety as well as the side effects. 

I think full FDA approval could make them feel safer.

it's coming to private industy-only a matter of time unless the virus completely dies out

Super big liability issues there. OSHA has already stated that if a business mandates a vaccine and someone gets sick or worse from it, the business could be on the hook big time from a legal perspective. Any issues arising from the vaccine would be considered "work-related" under the law.

It's going to be very hard for the average non-health related business to get away with mandating vaccinations, IMO. I don't see it being widespread. Small businesses that want to virtue signal need to be very, very careful here. The benefit is probably not greater than the risk.

Yea it will. It’ll be more widespread than you think. We already require masking and weekly Covid tests where I work if you unvaxed. My sources tell me that powers that be are thinking of mandating it to come back to the office. That’s the second step. 
Third step would be termination. That’s extreme, but it coming to global corporations near you. 
You said you work on a military base? You’re next.

Every night of Red Sox is must watch.  Bottom of the 8th inning, down by a run, and Verdugo hits a 2-run shot 415 feet to take the lead 5-4.

You can't look away.

I had turned it off about an hour ago after pivetta gave up the hr but ironically turned it on 2 pitches prior to verdugos home run.

VA first federal agency to require vaccination for direct patient care providers.   I’m guessing the unions may fight it some as they did the smoking ban (no smoking on any VA property) was enacted about a year ago.   Apparently some low % of vaccinated people in one center in AR may have sickened a number of vets?   Not sure...

My nephew has Delta.  Being vaccinated he’s not too sick-kind of like a bad cold.  His father, an anti vaxer in general spread it and then got on a plane.   He wins dildo of the year award......

The lawsuits in a few years will be comical. I took my vaccine because i wanted to.

If some other entity tried to make me take it, I only would if they signed a peice of paper saying they liable for any known reactions to vaccine.

If they dont i would probably look for employment elsewhere. Maybe start my own business with other antivaxx. No one forces me to do anything.
