    I don't know exactly how long, but I read somewhere that they expect 80 percent of the people in FL will get the virus and some that don't will certainly be vaccinated....probably almost all of them. It's true that mutations happen, but that doesn't necessarily mean that those who get this strain won't be protected from the next one. Of course it doesn't mean it WILL offer protection either.

    There are a lot of variables and this one is still mutating a lot but one disease (I forget which exactly) took roughly 100 years to get to a "herd immunity" level where it was not constantly, periodically flaring up and causing mass deaths. COVID might take a decade and it might take a century.

    I hope it is sooner than later because the antivaxxer crowd is going to be a reservoir for this for a long time to come.

    Unvaccinated animals as well since coronaviruses are zoonotic. There's been speculation that Omicron came from infected rodents like rats rather than an evolution from Delta in humans. Other animals have been found to be infected with COVID19 as well - deer, snow leopards, etc.

    I was thinking about who might be a successful presidential candidate for the Dems and what about Jon Ossoff? Of course, it doesn't really matter WHO the president is unless the party has fairly firm control of the senate and the house........

    Fetterman could go ALL THE WAY and be a like a positive Trump, merging the the free floating Populist Rage with Progressive energy to pass real reform and cause real reckoning for bad actors AND do it all in a package that appeals to the Blue Collar Whites and the Prog College types while IMO not scaring off older moderates too much.

    On the other hand... There may be reasons union leadership did what they did and Fetterman is not as electable as I assumed? To me though I relish the thought of Fetterman being on a debate stage with any GOP candidate for any office.

    Fetterman is definitely who I want. I'm disappointed to see he's not getting union support, considering how pro-union he is.

    Axios - America's youth goes left

    They've been to the left of RepubliQans for a long time. They are more racially diverse than older American voters.

    It's all a matter of margins and running that margin up. Bad news is it goes down after peaking and 2020 may have been the peak for a while.

    I've learned unions are usually structured so that ultimately the union leaders make major decisions like endorsements even if the members want something done differently.
