Distractions and Excuses…

Sloth-like response…
I think it’s hilarious the current “administration” is trying to blame it’s own myriad and sundry failures on Obama.  “Oh,” the ‘party of responsibility’ whines, “they didn’t leave us enough masks.”  Quick check: Donald Trump had been the so-called “President” for three years between Barack’s exit and the Pandemic.  Three years!  Trump had three years to buy masks and HE waited until weeks into the pandemic to try to replace them?  Sure…blame Obama…

Obamagate?
This is one of those ‘many but only’ things.  Many conservatives believe that Obama launched an illegal investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016 but ONLY conservatives believe that Obama launched an illegal investigation into the Trump campaign in 2016.  Everybody else knows the investigation was launched after monitoring of the Russian criminals and spies in this country revealed multiple and extensive contacts between the Russians and the Trump campaign.  Investigating was the correct – and appropriate – thing to do.

Ultimately, although Mueller managed to uncover multiple crimes and much criminal activity among Trump associates, he failed to make any definitive, criminal connections to the Russians but his report did detail many troubling contacts.  I wonder about the intelligence of re-hashing this whole thing now.  I guess they’re confident no new information will be forthcoming (unless they fabricate it, of course).  Besides, they need to try to convince the voting populace that the Russians aren’t responsible for Trump’s last “win” so people won’t blame the Russians should Trump claim victory a second time…

Yet Another Conspiracy Theory…
As of yesterday, according the CDC, there were 87,315 American deaths from Covid-19.  One can only speculate about how much lower that number would have been had a competent person been in charge of the response.  When Obama was faced with a potential Ebola virus outbreak, for example, it only killed 2 people in the US.  You know, because…competence…

So, conservatives are handling it the way they ALWAYS handle information they don’t like; they’re lying about it!  Conservatives are trying to pretend people are dying from other things but the hospitals are claiming the deaths as Covid-19 in an effort to increase profits.  They believe it, too, because, to them, it makes the most sense that doctors and hospitals across this once-great nation would risk their professional reputations, licenses, and certifications just to make Trump look bad.  (The true ‘Trump Delusional Syndrome…’)

Okay, in fairness, conservatives are not long on details so when they’re told some guy died of pneumonia and it got recorded as Corona-related, they believe it’s fraud because that’s how it’s portrayed in the conservative media.  The truth is, Covid-19 simply exploited a vulnerability in the patient.  The virus weakens one’s immune system and one dies of something other than Corona – but it’s absolutely a Covid-19 death.

It’s like AIDS.  AIDS, itself, didn’t kill anybody.  It just made people deathly vulnerable to…pretty much anything that came along.  Covid-19 is doing the same thing.  Doctors know these things.  Misinforming talking heads don’t…

The Final Frontier…

He also likes to see big, “working-man” trucks…

Would you look at this Dufus?  Just look at that grin.  He’s SO happy he gets his new Star Fleet flag.  This is what his “team” is doing instead of dealing with the Covid-19 problem.  To me, he looks just like a little boy being praised for making pee-pee in the potty like a big boy! (Of course, he actually missed…)

Connections?
In sad news, Melissa Etheridge lost a child this last week.  Her 21 year old son died from an opioid overdose.  I can’t imagine the pain and offer my deepest condolences on the family’s loss.  The father of that child?  David Crosby, a man with well-known struggles of his own with drugs.  I started wondering about the genetic predisposition to addiction.  I know there are FAR too many variables to say for certain but it crossed my mind…
