The COVID Fight: Are we running scared or standing up?

   < < Go Back
from The Gray Area:

For the past year we have seen our leaders and the media try to make us believe that COVID is a death sentence. They have been successful.

For the past year, we have seen Joe Biden wear his mask everywhere, inside, outside, by himself or with others. By contract, you have seen former Pres. Trump wear his mask in certain environments where some risk exists or it was required by a company or office building. Not outside, not while speaking. Which sends the correct message? The argument for each largely falls along political lines.

For the past year, we have locked down, re-opened, lock down again, re-opened again, and in some cities, states & countries remained locked down the entire time. Which combinations of reactions worked best? Again, the arguments fall largely along political lines, not factual analysis.

Are you left with the feeling that the United States has attacked this pandemic, or run from it? The debate here also falls along political lines, with Biden supporters preferring running away fro it and trump supporters preferring attacking the virus.

Or, is it by political design?
When this pandemic ends, and it will end soon, we’re not going back to normal. Because i think we all agree, normal was never good enough. Normal accepts inequity.” Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA).

Lockdowns are quietly improving cities around the world.” World Economic Forum in since deleted tweet.

These are things,even if vaccinate, that you’re not going to be bale to do in society; for example, indoor dining, theaters, places where people congregate. That’s because of the safety of society.” Anthony Fauci, quoted in the Washington Times

You have not seen my wrath…I can tell the whole world what a bad person you are and you will be finished. You will be destroyed.” Gov. Cuomo to state assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens) who questioned his nursing home record. Kim’s uncle died of COVID in a New York nursing home. Quoted in The New York Post.
