Buck up America! We will get through this epidemic despite TRUMP!

Just listen to and follow the health expert directives.  Believe that the science and health professionals and workers will get us through this.

I guess I will have to take my share of blame for what we have become such a society  —  We have become a society of self-fulfillment, autonomy, and privacy as ideals.  While I was born pre boomer era, I was raised during it and probably spoiled my kids as well.

And these habits do not bode well for the present situation. The cases of the virus grow everyday.  And what does the Trump administration do?  Make promises.  If Trump would have listened to his intelligence department warnings of the virus in January and February and acted then as he is now since March 1, we would be much better off.

“People may think of authoritarian nations in cold war terms, as states with bombastic leaders who grant themselves extravagant titles and weigh their chests with meaningless medals. These are nations without legistures, without courts, with populations cowed by armies of secret police. This is not how many authoritarian nations work today. Most have elections, legislatures, courts; they possess all the trappings of democracy. But the democratic institutions that authoritarian nations retain have little power to check the executive, either because they are under regime control or because they are cowed or co-opted into submission.”  — Adam Serwer

Have a nice day – at home and alone.

  1. Hope you are keeping yourself locked up and safe somewhere.

    I just hope he leaves these press conferences for the experts SOON. It’s a circus.

  2. I refuse to follow trump’s advice on anything unless it is borne out by actual research. So when he says “hydroxychloroquine” is a good drug for it, I immediately realized no way unless a doctor that I trust, and I don’t mean Dr Phil or Dr Drew, recommends it. And at this point if my personal doctor said that was one of the preventives, I would question him very strongly as to why he was saying that.

    Never trust a politician with a political interest in a particular outcome to tell you medical advice. He wants us to open the entire nation despite the continued spread of this visit by about 20,000 a day with 1000 or so deaths on most days. (sometimes it goes down to 800 and then the next day we hear about 1200, but 1000 is a good average. As long as that is the case, the pandemic is NOT over.
