Lying by Omission

What do you want? (Serious question)

The virus is ramping up in every state. Oregon hospitals are at over 74% capacity. The United States' management of the pandemic is non-existent. Doctors Without Borders is coming in to manage the "looming humanitarian crisis." Yep. We are THE third world country now. All because of Trump and his administration. If we had had a resident in the WH who had kept the pandemic response team intact and followed any kind of protocol at all other than ignoring the pandemic and lying about it every time he opened his mouth, we would not be here right now.

So what do you want?

We're looking at thousands of people dead a day. We've hit over 10 million cases and a 250,000 dead and after Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year's Eve what will the numbers be?

This country is going to be decimated. Catastrophic loss of life, millions of people who may have survived COVID but will have lifelong health problems, an economy destroyed either by being shut down to stop the virus or by being open and spreading the virus rampantly.

At some point the entire health care system in this country is going to break. Doctors and nurses in North Dakota have been ordered by their governor to work EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH COVID. States that have ignored any and all shutdowns now want to sent their sick to Oregon and Washington and New York and other states that did everything they could to stop the spread.

And meanwhile we've got people who want to see their families for the holidays (because they won't be able to see them in the hospital when they are dying). We've got people who won't wear masks or social distance. We've got people who do not give a fuck about any of this (oh until one of their loved ones gets sick and/or dies, then they wake up and cry IT'S NOT A HOAX or they don't because they're the one that got sick and died).

And we have slightly more than two months of Trump and his minions who are still (if you saw today's "press conference") are saying everything is fine, nothing to see here, oh and we're going to punish New York by making sure they don't get the vaccine.

So you are upset because you think you are being lied to by Governor Brown. How do you feel about all of the lies told by Trump and his administration and all Republicans who have denied the severity of COVID-19 since December 2019?

I mean, what do you want? Do you want the truth? The truth is this country is fucked beyond belief. The loss, the catastrophic loss on every possible level from life to the economy and everything in between is (to again quote Doctors Without Borders) "a looming humanitarian crisis" that the people in this country cannot even begin to fathom because they can't even begin to fathom NOT celebrating Thanksgiving!

The truth? Unless the federal government decides to provide serious and continuous financial assistance (oh and health care) for possibly two or three years (which of course will never happen in this country), the destruction experienced by every single person other than the most wealthy (though they could get the virus and/or die, too, because the virus does not care how much money you have) is going to be like nothing we have ever seen, not even during the Great Depression or any of the World Wars.

Can you handle the truth? Because that's it in a nutshell. But by all means, Governor Brown lying by omission is what you DEFINITELY need to focus on because???

It’s Time to Hunker Down

A devastating surge is here. Unless Americans act aggressively, it will get much larger, very quickly.
