One Nashville merchant’s ‘solution’ to COVID-19

I found it funny when the Facebook
poster mocked me for blaming Trump for COVID-19, even though there wasn’t anything funny about it. NOTHING I had typed had indicated I blamed Trump for COVID. Of course when challenged, and told she was lying, she simply revised her claim about what I wrote “responsible,” OR responsible for the increase in cases.
Now I plead guilty to the last part of her accusation. Guilty of telling the truth. After I typed a shorter version of what I am about to type her response was silence. Probably because how much Trump was responsibile was easy to prove.
Instead of seeking calm and bipartisanship, Trump went to a “Democratic hoax.” Read more
CureVac boss was at the White House last week to discuss its vaccines plans.

My preference is a progressive ticket. But this isn’t about what I want, or what you want. While I don’t totally dismiss miracles, it’s about the reality of where we seem to be headed.
I firmly believe we are at that movie climax moment where we take out the shark or he eats us. That’s why thinking our way out of this box office inspired moment is important. That’s why working together despite differences is crucial. We need a united nation, especially considering Corona, and especially considering our relations with perhaps former allies.

Not invited to unification? The deplorables. YES, I used “deplorables.” You know; that half of Trump’s movement who are like the character who Slim Pickens played in Doctor Strangelove. They would ride any bomb down for Trump, and Corona definitely seems “da bomb.” Oh, and I think “half” may have been far too generous. NOTHING we will say or do could win them over. On a Corona death bed they would insist a secret lab run by “lib-burr-uls” created Corona, and that leftist lab was also genetically altering ticks so when tick season arrives we can have Corona with Lyme. All they would need is a single Trumpster tweet.
I promise you: we are far better off without them. Read more
