Here's the latest...U.S. surpasses all other countries as leader in COVID-19 cases


How could this happen in the United States where we supposedly have the best of everything, including healthcare?...

The blame all rests on the shoulders of the guy in the White House who last January was "touting his health care record as a key reason voters should grant him another term." His record then was trying to get rid of Obamacare, which he failed at, and it has gotten progressively worse as the U.S. now leads the world in coronavirus cases: 81,321 as of Thursday with 1,000 deaths. But it gets worse...
"A cadre of right-wing news sites pulled from the fringes in recent years through repeated mention by President Trump is now taking aim at Anthony S. Fauci, the ­nation’s top infectious diseases ­expert, who has given interviews in which he has tempered praise for the president with doubts about his pronouncements."
Not only have we failed miserably at coronavirus testing, headed up originally by number two, Mike Pence, and now son-in-law screw-up Jared Kushner, but now the Oval Office lunatic wants to fire all the experts to just listen to those who will say what he wants to hear. And he is more concerned with a faltering U.S. economy that could hurt his November chances in the election than help the Americans he was elected to serve.

NY Gov. Cuomo needs ventilators, pleads with Trump to use Defense Production Act...


His running war with New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo has no doubt attributed to that state, and the city of New York, becoming the epicenter of the U.S. COVID-19 epicenter, where there are 74,000 cases. A dedicated New York city nurse, Kious Jordan Kelly, 48, assistant nursing manager at Mount Sinai Hospital, has died of the virus in New York's escalating crisis. Kelly also suffered from severe asthma The NY crisis was caused by...
"surging numbers of coronavirus patients and shortages of crucial medical equipment and protective gear for staffers."
The New York Times reports...
"Scientists warned that the United States someday would become the country hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic. That moment arrived on Thursday."
The Times is compiling data throughout the U.S. showing a comprehensive picture of the COVID-19 pandemic and I will bring that to you as available. Any delays, the paper says, are due to the fact...
"Trump has sent mixed messages about the scale of the danger and how to fight it, ensuring there was no coherent, unified response to a grave public health threat.
 "A series of missteps and lost opportunities dogged the nation’s response."

In hindsight, T-rump's failed to take the pandemic seriously...
"even as it engulfed China, a deeply flawed effort to provide broad testing for the virus that left the country blind to the extent of the crisis, and a dire shortage of masks and protective gear to protect doctors and nurses on the front lines, as well as ventilators to keep the critically ill alive."
China took a slow start on attacking the disease, but then...
"China’s autocratic government acted with ferocious intensity after the belated start, eventually shutting down swaths of the country. Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan quickly began preparing for the worst."
We already have the autocracy in Donald Trump, but the idiot didn't have the brains to implement the necessary measures to prevent the predicament we are now in. That is the difference between the intelligence of China's president, Xi Jinping and Donald Trump. In this case, Jinping worked for the good of his people. Trump worked for the good of his reelection and approval rating. We may never recover from what this moron has done to the United States.

Is racism still a dirty word, or...just accepted today?

Racism is worse than that old weather saying. People have been talking about it for years, but no one has seriously done anything about it...
