Yesterday was a good day!

 



Yesterday our President announced tangible no-BS policy to thwart those undermining efforts to beat the pandemic. 






Me today: 

And what’s on the agenda for today Joe?!

1200 dead of COVID yesterday in Florida.
Not the total for a week or a month, but ONE SINGLE DAY.

They're killing off their own to own the libs! And the MAGAts don't like us to call them stupid?

I listened to joey read his proposal that was handed to him. Except for the vindictiveness and shifting blame to others it was a good speech. As a country we need to do something to get this under control and his ideas were a good start. He didn't mention the thousands who cross our Southern border as a problem but he is trying to ignore that there is any problem there.

I do have a question relating to his speech. How are minorities being discriminated against from getting shot.

Shaw... from the 7-2 SCOTUS decision from your state way back in 1905...

"in every well ordered society charged with the duty of conserving the safety of its members the rights of the individual in respect of his liberty may at times, under the pressure of great dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand" and that... liberty for all could not exist under the operation of a principle which recognizes the right of each individual person to use his own [liberty], whether in respect of his person or his property, regardless of the injury that may be done to others."

Southern states and GOP Governors have already announced that they will challenge this decision by the Biden Admin in court.

Let's see how it all plays out. In the meantime, I am sure many ppl as a result will just go and get vaccinated.

At least I hope that's true.

And yet we see comments like this from folks...

"I wish we’d just LET THE VIRUS PLAY ITSELF OUT…like the Spanish Flu did back in 1918 when we hadn’t NEARLY the medical help we do now….. Warned the elderly and those with health problems and LET IT PLAY OUT."

Exactly! Why even bother with public health? Hey lady, you'd probably be dead with your solution. Just keep quiet, tell America everything will be alright or Covid will go away by spring and call it good, as President Trump did. Nothing to see here.

Of all the comments I've seen from pissed off ppl over the last 18/19 months, this is by far the most idiotic, stupid, uninformed, evil and uncaring thing I have seen.

Breathtaking.

Keep going, Joe!

"I wish we’d just LET THE VIRUS PLAY ITSELF OUT…like the Spanish Flu did back in 1918 when we hadn’t NEARLY the medical help we do now….. Warned the elderly and those with health problems and LET IT PLAY OUT."

The 1918 Influenza killed approximately 25 to 50 million people worldwide. So the person who callously wrote that would like to see possibly a tripling of those deaths by letting COVID and its variants "play out" now, knowing we have a vaccine that could save people's lives????

This is what happens when weak-minded people listen to the likes of FAUX NOOZ numbskulls and ignorant radio talk show hosts.

I wonder if the person who wrote that would be so casual in her wishes for others people's deaths if those deaths took the lives of people she loved. It's so easy to say "let it play out" when it's other people's lives and not the lives of your loved ones.

That woman and her commenters are breathtakingly heartless.

I've read on her blog where she asks her followers for prayers when someone she knows or is related to is in some sort of health crisis. How would she feel is someone were to tell her to forget prayer, "let it play out?"

Apparently she'd like God to intercede for her sick family and friends but not have what some of her fellow Christians call a God-given vaccine to save lives.

The problem, Dave, is that those folks are not deep thinkers or even rational. And they certainly have no understanding of irony when they write such idiocy.

Someone in the last post wrote about liking Presidents who work for the majority. Of the many things Biden has already done, what about the Infrastructure bill? I sure wish that was on the agenda today to get that passed and signed into law...

skud often writes stuff without researching. The infrastructure bill is wildly popular with the American people -- a MAJORITY of the American people. Also a MAJORITY of the American people liked the way President Biden handled the COVID crisis when he came into office.

But skud looks only at negatives and is convinced that no Democrat does anything good for the country. His hero is Ronald Reagan -- the guy who TAXED social security (already a tax) to pay for his tax cuts to the wealthy. Also, Reagan headed up one of the most corrupt administrations in modern post-WW II history. Those are facts that skud either doesn't know or does know and ignores to fit his narrative: Only Republicans are good presidents.
