Drawing a congressional map that squanders MO’s chance to send more Repub’s to Congress doesn’t just help Nancy Pelosi—it helps every socialist Democrat from Joe Biden on that are bent on changing the very nature of our country from rural farms to urban skyscrapers. #moleg 7:46 PM · Feb 10, 2022
All those unspoken parts.
Some of the responses:
Is that the rhetoric you were taught to spew by your ALEC handlers. It’s not very original, intelligent or true. Do better.
“changing the very nature of our country from rural farms to urban skyscrapers” has got to be one of the most nonsensical turns of phrase I’ve ever heard. I mean, I know what you were going for but woof.
Last night, after right wingnut republicans in the Missouri Senate refused to confirm Governor Mike Parson’s (r) nominee as Director of the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) – during a pandemic:
Governor Mike Parson @GovParsonMO
Missourians know that I share these beliefs and would not have nominated someone who does not share the same Christian values. Yet, Senators chose to believe baseless rumors and outright lies on social media rather than the facts in front of them. 6:02 PM · Feb 1, 2022
“Missourians know that I share these beliefs and would not have nominated someone who does not share the same Christian values…”
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
….that no person shall, on account of his or her religious persuasion or belief, be rendered ineligible to any public office or trust or profit in this state, be disqualified from testifying or serving as a juror, or be molested in his or her person or estate; that to secure a citizen’s right to acknowledge Almighty God according to the dictates of his or her own conscience, neither the state nor any of its political subdivisions shall establish any official religion….
That no person can be compelled to erect, support or attend any place or system of worship, or to maintain or support any priest, minister, preacher or teacher of any sect, church, creed or denomination of religion; but if any person shall voluntarily make a contract for any such object, he shall be held to the performance of the same.
It’s possible Mike Parson (r) has read the words. It’s clear he doesn’t comprehend them.

This Indian slum contained COVID-19 with hydroxychloroquine plus vitamin D& zinc. Very encouraging. Comes on heels of @HenryFordNews study on HCQ plus Zpack. #moleg

[….] Larger, well-designed studies were needed to determine if hydroxychloroquine was a safe and effective treatment for SARS-CoV-2 infection. In April, NIH launched a clinical trial at 34 hospitals nationwide to test the medication. The study was funded by NIH’s National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
By June, the study was stopped because interim results showed the drug neither caused harm nor improved patient outcomes. The trial had enrolled 479 of the expected 510 patients. Earlier in the month, the FDA had revoked its emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine. It cited a lack of benefit as well as risks, such as serious heart rhythm problems. [….]
The scientists also found no differences in any of 12 additional outcomes, which included mortality 28 days after assignment to a treatment group or time to recovery. Based on the data, they concluded that hydroxychloroquine was not an effective treatment. [….]
Studies in the United Kingdom and Brazil had similar results. [….]

In fact, they averaged 2.6 “comorbitities.” Although every death is a tragedy, many, many people died WITH #COVID19 , not OF #COVID19. The survival rate overall is 99.8% (CDC data) heavily weighted toward older, sicker individuals.

From the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), in the United States to date:
TOTAL CASES 45,316,210
+77,933 New Cases
CASES IN LAST 7 DAYS 491,071
TOTAL DEATHS 733,834
+1,834 New Deaths
CDC | Data as of: October 24, 2021 5:23 PM ET. Posted: October 24, 2021 5:53 PM ET
Case fatality ratio (CFR) is the proportion of individuals diagnosed with a disease who die from that disease and is therefore a measure of severity among detected cases:
Reliable CFRs that can be used to assess the deadliness of an outbreak and evaluate any implemented public health measures are generally obtained at the end of an outbreak, after all cases have been resolved (affected individuals either died or recovered).
Calculating CFR during an ongoing epidemic
CFR calculated using the above formula during ongoing epidemics provides a conditional, estimate of CFR and is influenced by lags in report dates for cases and deaths . This leads to a wide variation in CFR estimates over the course of an epidemic, which tends toward a stable, final estimate of CFR as active cases are resolved.
One simple solution to mitigating the bias due to delays to case resolution during an ongoing outbreak is to restrict the analysis to resolved cases [….]
In the United States – to date:
Case Fatality Ratio (CFR) [%] = (733,834 [total deaths]/45,316,210 [total cases} x 100
CFR = 1.62%

In #HB271 we also banned #COVIDPassports! No Missourian should be subject to restrictions on their movement or personal liberties for declining to participate in an intrusive COVID passport scheme. #moleg @Koenig4MO @jmmurphy8 @BenBrownTweets #Freedom

Sure, that sounds like a really good idea in a pandemic – just stick our heads in the sand and hope it all goes away.
“Useless laws weaken the necessary laws.” – Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu (1689 – 1755)
A bill, introduced in the current special session of the Missouri General Assembly:
SB 9 – This act creates the offense of unlawful traffic interference if, with the intention to impede vehicular traffic, the person walks, stands, sits, kneels, lays, or places an object in a manner that blocks passage by a vehicle on any public street or highway.
This offense is a Class A misdemeanor if a person blocks a public street for the first violation and a Class E felony for any subsequent violation.
This offense is a Class E felony if a person blocks an interstate highway.
This offense is a Class D felony if a person blocks a street or highway as part of an unlawful assembly.
[….] (2) “Unlawful assembly”, two or more persons who meet for the purpose of violating any of the criminal laws of this state or of the United States.
Do meetings in offices in the capitol building qualify? Just asking.
2. A person commits the offense of unlawful traffic interference if, with the intention to impede vehicular traffic, the person walks, stands, sits, kneels, lays, or places an object in such a manner as to block passage by a vehicle on any public street, highway, or interstate highway. [….]

“I think there’s a limit of what government should be involved in our lives.” – Sen. David Sater (r)
SB 147 was introduced by Senator David Sater (r). The bill summary:
