Sorbo tweeted on Feb 7, 2022:
If the shots were given away for free because they’re life-saving, why isn’t insulin free? Chemotherapy? Epipens?
Nice try, Sorbo. Candace Owens tried ‘owning the libs’ the same pathetic way on Jul 21, 2021. With much the same result.
Here are some of the replies to Sorbo:
Endorsing universal healthcare to own the libs.
He’s so fucking close to a breakthrough here, don’t anyone move
The government should pay for those too, yes.
And replies to Owens last year included:
My favorite genre of tweets is conservatives accidentally becoming progressive. You’re so right @RealCandaceO insulin and inhalers SHOULD be free!!!
The one where Candace Owens accidentally argues for universal healthcare

More and more people around the world are suffering because their immune systems can no longer tell the difference between healthy cells and invading micro-organisms. Disease defences that once protected them are instead attacking their tissue and organs.
Latest scary health theory: Western (i.e., low fiber) diet seems to contribute to the spike in autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, celiac disease and lupus — at least in people with certain genetic profiles.
In other words, if you have genes that make you susceptible to autoimmune disease and you load up on Happy Meals, you’re much more likely to actually experience an autoimmune disease than if you stick to rabbit food.
Is this proven yet? No, but it looks pretty likely.

The federal government has left states largely on their own when it comes to testing their citizens and securing critical equipment during the pandemic. But when it comes to those supplies, Gov. Hogan’s concern appears to have been warranted: There have been numerous reports of the Federal Emergency Management Agency hijacking desperately needed protective gear for first responders and health care workers.

We hear that New York City Mayor de Blasio is giving his daily briefing now. He’s sitting six feet away for his Health Commissioner, but neither are wearing face masks. I had thought he was doing a decent job but I’m beginning to have second thoughts.
As of 13 April 2020, the city has more confirmed coronavirus cases than China, where the epidemic began; the United Kingdom; and Iran. The encompassing state of New York has more cases than any foreign country worldwide. [from Wikipedia, April 15, 2020]
And on to NY Governor Andrew Cuomo: He, too, sounded good on TV. But, even in a pandemic, he always has time to shit on de Blasio. And the state’s coronavirus numbers are . . . impressive?
Still, either de Blasio or Cuomo would be better than President 45.

Thanks to Mozilla’s “Pocket” service for putting it in our yak delivery.
Here in the Transbaikal, we get our news brought in by yak; it’s slow but reliable (“reliable” in the sense that the yaks refuse to carry anything from Fox News or the Washington Times).
It has been our good fortune that correspondent J.R. packed this link into our latest yak delivery. Instead of the usual media blather about “most cases” or “most deaths,” the Washington Post has helpfully converted the data to per capita.

New Yorkers will be pleased to learn that Rep. Carolyn Maloney has earned a listing in the Encyclopedia of American Loons for her repeated sponsorship of legislation to “investigate” the connection between autism and vaccination.
Maloney is not actually a loon — she’s done a lot of good in Congress — but her sponsorship of H.R.2832 and H.R.1757 was a huge embarrassment. At least she’s scrubbed all mention of them from her website.
