I started tearing up at the end. Not tears of sorrow, but tears of anger, of frustration.

Those in charge of the Senate are not Republicans, they are Trumpist RINO's. Republicans would have pushed to have Republican President George W. Bush's pandemic playbook enacted.

Things are getting worse yet the cult will continue to back Pres. Trump to their deaths.

Thanks for the link. That was great.

Edit: You know, one of my markers of the right-wing mindset is my elderly FIL, who sits and watches Faux News all day. When the Covid projections first came out, he was enraged. “200,000 dead? In my day, that would be called warmongering!”

Still not quite sure what he meant by that, but of course now we’re a few days from 200K and the projections are now double that. And sadly, he now grasps the situation more than our president and many of his supporters.

But, no doubt, he still backs the president.

Oh of course. Sends Trump money too.

Given the tRumpian propaganda generators, he might have meant the Chinese have killed 200,000 Americans.

I worry we place blame on conservatives, when one of yesteryear’s progressive administrations (Wilson, if you ignore the racism ... ) ignored the last major pandemic altogether. His own life-altering flu experience caused him to roll over and give in to France after WWI, which did the world no favors by helping create a WWII.

People not only forget the past, they can’t or won’t give it credibility when presented with evidence and the benefit of hindsight. Arguments today about sending kids to school, how it’s “safer,” or “better” for them and so on ... exact same scenarios played out 100+ years ago, but it’s not enough to change behaviors today.

We marvel at what some countries have done to tackle COVID-19; I have doubts that we as a country could have done similar regardless of who was in office.

Don’t interpret that in any way as letting today’s officials off the hook. Let’s just say that I feel Dems have so far been “lucky” to not have been in majority power to enact the austerity measures of a full lockdown. They would have been eviscerated, with someone very much like Trump being elected this year.

In fairness, Woodrow Wilson was not functioning as President for the last 18-24 months of his term. Policy was being decide by his wife Edith (the first female President) aided and abetted by a few Cabinet secretaries.
