    Medicare is health insurance for people 65 or older as you stated. You may be eligible to get Medicare earlier if you have a disability, End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), or ALS (also called Lou Gehrig's disease).

    In the movie “Fiddler on the roof” in the song “if I were a rich man” it says something like when you are rich, people listen and think you really know. I think there is truth in that.

    People might vote for him - but he's not a citizen born here. Being born in South Africa would prevent him from running.

    Of Musks 10 surviving kids, one hates him and decided to change genders. Musk blames the California culture for making him into a communist. Although Musk is clever in many areas, he shares the COVID anti-VAX sentiment. One deadly lie is that vaccinations cause autism and led to a deadly outbreak in a refugees in the USA:

    The vaccine-autism myth is one chilling example of fraudulent science. February 28, 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of an infamous article published in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, in which Andrew Wakefield, a former British doctor, falsely linked the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine to autism. The paper eventually was retracted by the co-authors and the journal. Wakefield was de-licensed by medical authorities for his deceit and “callous disregard” for children in his care. It took nearly two decades for the UK immunization rates to recover. By the end, UK families had experienced more than 12,000 cases of measles, hundreds of hospitalizations — many with serious complications — and at least three deaths.

    It would be trivial for Russian liars to start a campaign that vaccines increase 'transgenderism'. Using X formerly known as Twitter, we've seen Musk repeated Russian propaganda suggesting the Russians have a working model to exploit Musk. Ralph Nader and Ross Perot have already shown it doesn't take much to run a 'high visibility' Presidential campaign.

    Pure speculation
    , evidence would be if Musk funds RFK Jr along with the known, 'dark money' Republican funders.

    As a kid of the 60's - all of our siblings, cousins Etc were put together so we would experience measles & recover in short order at the same time - so parents wouldn't have to deal with multiple incidences. .... has something changed where kids no longer experience / suffer extreme symptoms? Realizing modernly we make the shingles connection .... but that becomes a separate issue of which the better ½ & i received the shingles shot.

    Shingles comes from the chickenpox virus, not a measles virus.

    I'm remembering hearing a lot more about chickenpox parties than measles parties. And that measles is deadlier than chickenpox.

    Adult chickenpox was when I learned I had a paradoxical response to Benadryl (TM). Some things you want to forget but you just can't.

    hospitalizations are double a month ago, but still very low numbers here. right now, my doc said all is quiet regarding covid, flu and rsv.
    still nice outside though, and we probably won't know much until the cold weather sets in and people are gathering inside more.
    still, schools have been back for a month, so that's a good sign.

    Is the discussion over you cannot get Covid-19 from the vaccine, 100%, there is no more to say, there is no discussion?
    I have some neighbors, one older couple down the street who keep talking about pilots dying. All they want to talk about is the vaccine kills people. I don’t even argue with them or tell them it isn’t true, but they want to keep talking about it. I had to go look it up the first time they were talking about pilots dying, so they won’t fly, to see what in the world they were believing.

    yes, and others keep talking about how many young athletes have died, but can provide no names.
    they just keep parroting what they read on dark websites because they want it to be true

    Wonder what makes people who have negative feelings about the vaccines feel they need to convey that feeling to others and convince them to feel the same. It is as if someone who doesn't feel that way is offering a personal affront to them or threating them.

    Speaking for myself, I trust my Doctor and his Peers recommendations - not so much the internet. If I get really sick he is the one who will help me not the internet.
