My sentiments exactly.

Keep in mind that this is an article about Howard Stern's opinion of the 100-million-dollar podcaster who took horse de-wormer for his COVID case. If foul language upsets you, now's the time to hit the "Delete" button in your email client.

Howard Stern Mocks Joe Rogan for Taking 'Horse Dewormer'
'GO F*CK YOURSELF'
"We have no time for idiots in this country anymore," Howard Stern said on Monday of anti-vaccine "shitheads."

Howard Stern has had it with the millions of Americans who would rather take medicine designed for deworming horses than accept that we already have a "cure" for COVID-19 in the form of a safe and effective vaccine. And that includes broadcasting disciple, podcast megastar Joe Rogan.

Taking on "all the shitheads in our country who won't get vaccinations," Stern said, "I heard Joe Rogan was saying, 'what are you busting my balls?' He says, 'I took horse dewormer and a doctor gave it to me.' Well a doctor would also give you a vaccine, so why take horse dewormer?"

The SiriusXM host was referring to Rogan's admission that he treated his recent case of COVID-19 with ivermectin, a drug that is typically used to deworm livestock. "We immediately threw the kitchen sink at it—monoclonal antibodies, ivermectin, Z-Pak, prednisone, everything," Rogan said on Instagram last month, without clarifying whether or not he had received the vaccine.

Previously, Rogan told his listeners they had no need to get vaccinated unless they fell into a specifically "vulnerable" group. "If you're a healthy person, and you're exercising all the time, and you're young, and you're eating well, like, I don't think you need to worry about this," he said in April. He later walked those comments back, admitting, "I'm not a doctor, I'm a fucking moron."

Stern's latest commentary comes on the heels of his assertion last week that unvaccinated people should not be granted hospital beds if they subsequently get infected and need life-saving medical help. "You had the cure and you wouldn't take it," he said last week.

"We have no time for idiots in this country anymore, we don't want you," Stern said later on Monday's broadcast. "Stay home, die there with your COVID. Don't take the cure, but don't clog up our hospitals with your COVID when you finally get it. Stay home, don't bother with science, it's too late. Go fuck yourself, we just don't have time for you."

From: David Kramer <mridmk@gmail.com>


A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas , walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.
The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time."
The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona , the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas , we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself."
The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.
The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn.
One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss."

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs.

"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."

"Hasn't affected my brothers though."

You’re not wrong. It is totally nuts



The Lincoln Project

 

Glenn, if you've ever asked yourself if maybe you are overreacting to something shitty the GOP freedumb mob did…

If you've ever wondered if you live in a bubble...

If you think you should follow different people online and broaden your perspective because there must be something you're missing…

Or if somehow, despite what your most core instincts are telling you, you think they're right about something and you just can't figure out what it is…

You can stop.

There's nothing wrong with you.

Your bubble might be anti-Trumpworld and you might only follow like-minded people online but you need your sanity like we all do.

And you know what? Your instinct that something is terribly broken...that the MAGA mob is doing irreparable harm to this country...damage you don't even think can be reversed in your own lifetime. 

You're not wrong.

Their thirst for power. Their desire for the spotlight.

Knows no limits. 

They have tapped into the worst, dare I say the most DEPLORABLE sentiments throughout this country, and dragged them onto center stage. This is what they are no longer bothering to hide but openly saying out loud - and legislating:

"Women, we no longer care if your pregnancy is the result of sexual assault or rape or your pregnancy might kill you. Have the baby and figure out a way to support it and no we're not increasing the minimum wage. Shame on you for being a leech on the system."

"Teachers, show your face in school, no masks allowed. We don't care if i

"Children, you're too little to make decisions. Your life doesn't really matter anyway because you can't vote for us. Most of you will make it through intubation. Tell your parents to shut it."

They. Do. Not. Care.

If you believe you received this message in error or wish to no longer receive email from us, please click here.

They don't care that states where vaccination rates are the lowest (namely the South) are also where the ER visits and hospitalizations of children are 4x the national average.

Of course they don't because that smells a lot like facts and you know they don't care about those either.

They're in fact incredibly busy not caring about you, the women you know and love, and the children who will someday (God willing) be the voting population of this country.

  • They are focusing on being "believable" - yes, Chris Christie actually said that.
  • They're focused on being electable - lookin' at you DeSantis - and it's not lookin' good.
  • They're focused on reigniting the January 6th atrocity by rebranding it and calling for another riot later this month.

Twenty years ago this month, after a rocky election and continued political divisiveness, this country came together after a terrorist attack rocked our nation.

We are not the same country today. We are weaker and if we know that, our global adversaries know it.

And I don't think we'll be able to come together again on anything until we get rid of the stranglehold the Trump GOP and their far-right maniacs have on this country. That is what we are working for and that is what we have to do. Your help is keeping us in this fight.

I'm telling you this because it is so hard to believe what is going on. Sometimes you have to pinch yourself to actually believe it.

We are right there with you. Our team is feeling it too. I can't remember when the men and the women who make up The Lincoln Project have been this furious. And they have every right to be.

And there's one thing our opponents should know by now about The Lincoln Project: The more pissed off we get the harder we fight.

I will tell you the same thing I tell our amazing team. 

This is the fight of our lives. Your anger, your disbelief, your rage is not futile. Not hopeless. It feels like it is. But let it show you just what we have to do. We have to beat these insane lunatics running our country into the ground, killing our kids, and thinking horse medicine is a better idea than a medically proven vaccine that the f'ing FDA has approved.

Rant over. For now.

 

-Rick
