Mission Creep

Four years. The blink of an eye, when compared to some others… because it’s been allowed to go on FOR YEARS.

I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s much easier to REMOVE someone from elected office who chooses to IGNORE the Will of The People, than it is to elect someone who will actually ACT.

Why do they not act? When the evidence is CLEAR that their actions would SAVE LIVES… they hesitate. Instead of doing what is RIGHT they remain SILENT. For what? What’s more precious to them than saving someone’s life?

We all know what the problem is.

It’s a hard thing to swallow… it’s just a numbers game. Even if the odds are infinitesimally small. One-in-a-million, one-in-a-billion… people are dying due to the vaccine. It’s a stone cold fact. To deny it, is to deny science.

And that’s where this whole debacle went off the rails. Our elected officials chose to DENY SCIENCE and played politics with a deadly virus. I have no confidence that our elected officials are telling us the TRUTH right now… because BOTH SIDES have been manipulating facts and spinning scientific data for over TWO YEARS.

And now we can SEE just how accurate Donald Trump’s predictions were…

“If we could hold that down… so we have between 100 and 200,000 – we altogether have done a very good job.”

—Donald J. Trump


Nailed it, sir.

IF ONLY they knew in advance, if only they had some sort of PLAN…

IF the odds are one-in-a-million, in this country alone that’s 350 people… worldwide that’s 8,000 deaths. Even if we are generous and it’s more like one-in-a-billion, we’re still condemning EIGHT people to die.

That’s a hard call for anyone to make… because it could be anyone. It could be my MOTHER, or my CHILD. It could even be ME. And that decision is made with intent. With knowledge… with consent. A decision was made, knowing with certainty what the outcome would be.

Because of our knowledge and our collective effort to SAVE LIVES… we are at the LOWER end of those initial internal projections. Unequivocally, our SACRIFICE has saved over one million American Lives.

Let us learn from our mistakes now, so that next time, our grandchildren will be able to save a million more than we did.

And it’s not that hard to see how it could happen. When we lose focus on our goals. When doing what’s RIGHT becomes too cumbersome… when the PRICE of expediency is more attractive than the burden of responsibility.

At best we could say, that our elected officials are just out of touch with the lives of Everyday Americans. At worst… they act knowing the results of their inaction. And hey, I’m an optimist. I’ll gladly take a half-empty glass… if that’s all that’s left. But I refuse to be BLIND.

What person acting in GOOD FAITH, would name a bill after a recovering addict out of spite… especially when that recovering addict is the SON of the sitting President of the United States?

Shame? They have NO SHAME… that’s what keeps their coffers FULL.

Strip it all BARE. Lay it out there for the whole WORLD to see. That old phrase ‘You better get RIGHT with Jesus’ comes to mind… and that seems about right. They’ve now shown themselves to be the hucksters and carpetbaggers that they truly ARE.

They have NO FAITH in the Will of the MAJORITY… so they’ll just take whatever they CAN for themselves. While the rest of us desperately rally behind their PARTY… their RACKET… their COVER… praying that maybe someday, SANITY might rule the day in the United States Senate.

But we all know what the problem is… and an ADDICT will not change their ways until they admit they have a problem.

Our elected officials, making FUN of addicts… laughing at the plight of their VOTERS. Their CONSTITUENTS. All while they fail to remember… damn near every single one of those addicts owes their addiction to the LAX OVERSIGHT allowed by the very legislative body in which they serve.

They fail to tell you… all of this could have been avoided in the first place.

Or maybe we all know what the problem is.

Senator Manchin and his family’s got it all figured out… why can’t YOURS?

Is there nothing left that we hold SACRED? Is there nothing that can bridge the gap… no place where we can find COMMON GROUND?

If I may be so BOLD to suggest… there is NO political division in this country. There is no existential threat. There is still ONE overarching ideology that encompasses every political party, that every one of us can agree upon.

Our Legislators legislate based on MONEY and the pursuit thereof.

To FUND their Political Organizations.
To FUND their Political Parties.
To FUND their re-election campaigns…

All at the expense of THE PEOPLE they were elected to represent.

Any system that would allow the influence of MONEY to decide who is worthy of legislating for the rest of us, will inevitably favor those WITH money over those WITHOUT.

Be it the Second Amendment, a woman’s right to CHOOSE, or the teaching of this Nation’s long and prosperous HISTORY… we all know what the problem is.

On Full Display

When the pandemic first washed ashore, they did nothing… well, that might be a bit unfair. They adjusted their PORTFOLIOS and then they did nothing.

Accurate tests were available in January, and they did nothing while we waited for an alternative supplier to produce our tests… and they turned out to be worthless.

For months our medical professionals fought a pandemic wrapped in TRASH BAGS, reusing masks far beyond the amount of time they were designed for… because they did nothing to BE PREPARED.

Then they did nothing to end the shortages.

78019D92-EFA5-4C6C-8501-490EE77C27EF

It’s only one or two cases… it’s just like the FLU… it’ll be over by Easter… by Labor Day… after the Election they’ll stop talking about it…

They did nothing and Americans died. Needlessly.

 

At the beginning of the pandemic we couldn’t PRODUCE enough of what was necessary to meet our needs. Now we have matched production, but we lack the ability to DELIVER what we need.

So NOW there’s a problem. NOW there’s urgency…

Now. Not then.

Now… as our workforce has become fed up, we need to shift our focus to the supply chain. Immediately. And wouldn’t you know it, President Biden has a plan for that! He pimped it out when he announced the Port of Los Angeles would be running 24/7. It’s all part of getting us back to WORK and building back better…

It sure would have been nice if they had that same sense of URGENCY when it came to ensuring everyone had enough to EAT and a ROOF over their heads.

For ONE-TENTH the price of the CARES Act, we could have paid everyone’s mortgage and rent expenses for a YEAR. An extreme act, only considered because of their INACTION… how many problems would that have solved.

The conduits of Government have been SHUT OFF for everyday Americans. This monolithic entity of such Legislative Import, can only manage to pass temporary extensions on its obligations to pay its debt… kicking the can down the road until after the next election.

The United States Government shouldn’t be living paycheck-to-paycheck, yet it does. It has. For YEARS. With little variation, it has become the “norm”.

We may TRY, but we will never be the same. We may LIE and tell ourselves things can go back to where they once were… but that will only lead us to more of the SAME. The same weaknesses. The same vulnerabilities. The same crosses to bear.

Our perspectives have changed. A “pandemic epiphany”… a life, re-evaluated.

I want to write the uplifting words that rise above the political divide… that will inspire us all to unite. That is the person I want to be… maybe someday I can be that person… but right now, I can only HOPE

Because right now, our Elected Officials don’t inspire HOPE… their inaction inspires despair. Right now our political parties don’t seek to UNITE this country, they only seek to unite their BASE. And even at that they’ve come up short… they can’t even unite themselves.

Senator Manchin works for the people who got him elected… THE DONORS.

It’s not a principled stance, unlike Senator John McCain’s vote against a Republican attempt to weaken the ACA. Senator McCain voted as THE PEOPLE directed. Senator Manchin is opposed to this legislation even though THE PEOPLE support it…

30 Days

I hope I am wrong… but science says otherwise. I hope that after 30 days of this reopening, the number of Americans dying decreases and new infections are on the decline, making this plan irrelevant. Then we can go on about our lives, and everything can get back to normal…

I hope that I am wrong.

78019D92-EFA5-4C6C-8501-490EE77C27EF
“US just reported its deadliest day… as states reopen” CNBC.com (05/02/2020)

 

Some reports say the virus can be spread asymptomatically for 14 days. Recent reports from doctors in the field suggest that number could be 21 days. When cases present as severe, hospitalization and support often become necessary within 3.

Band-Aids and patchwork will not suffice. If we treat this highly contagious pathogen as if it will just BLOW AWAY, then we are accepting our fate.

Tens of thousands will die AND we will have a Great Depression. A worldwide economic slowdown that will bankrupt Baby Boomers and Millennials alike. Generations will be effected… in China, and in the United States.

The next TWENTY YEARS would be consumed with just trying to recover.

 

OR 

 

We can END this crisis in 30 DAYS.

 

In the span of ONE MONTH, we can go from National fear and anxiety to CLARITY and FOCUS. Ready to get back to work rebuilding and RECOVERING.

But we must commit to the endeavor in GOOD FAITH and HONOR our Sacred Duty; for in your hands, rests MY life, and in my hands… I hold YOURS.

 

Putting aside the obvious restlessness and boredom, why do Americans want to return to normal? Because they need to be productive and make a living… so they can have FOOD and SHELTER. The inaction of our government created this crisis, the inaction of our government BLOCKS our path out. Reinforcing misinformation and lies gives Americans a false sense of urgency, to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.

They’ve put us in an awkward position from which we must make our decisions. STEP BACK, and act not out of motivation spurred on by our base instincts, but out of CHARITY. Everyone of us, whether we STAY HEALTHY and survive; or we become SICK, requiring a ventilator in an ICU, we will ALL depend on the charity of others to survive… and we MUST survive.

Institutional memory, like muscle memory… knowledge and experience. That’s what’s on the line right now in our healthcare system. The next generation will not have the learned expertise of a mentor to guide them, jeopardizing the health and safety of us ALL. We must FACE FACTS… this Administration supports BOTH inaction and misinformation.

 

How do you kill a virus? You STARVE IT…

If it cannot SPREAD it dies.

 

In 30 DAYS we can eliminate the virus and return to normalcy if everyone shelters in place, and all essential workers have testing and personal protective equipment. We must apply the lessons we have learned so far and focus our efforts on what works. Because a vaccine will not be available until 2021… in the meantime, we are on our own.

Either 30 days NOW, or 30 days in NOVEMBER. I know what choice Donald Trump would prefer… what do THE PEOPLE want to do?

 

30 DAYS to prepare, then 30 DAYS to END THE QUARANTINE. If the Congress can pass a bill that will ensure FOOD and SHELTER for every American in less than 30 DAYS, then the sooner we can begin. But it must cover EVERYONE, home owners and renters, families and individual citizens, local businesses and major corporations.

If we commit to 30 DAYS and come out on the other side with no significant loss of life, and the virus is contained and traceable, then we can begin to implement our FULL RECOVERY all at once, united and safely.

 

The misinformation and lies fuel our divisions. Instead of doing what’s right, we do what appears to be necessary. The choices have been deliberately LIMITED… none of the shells presented in this “game” contain the “prize” we seek.

 

If we unite in COMMON CAUSE, we can CHANGE the game and put the odds in our favor. Every American Citizen KNOWS how to defeat the virus. All we have to do is STOP FIGHTING and we win… once we UNITE, success is ours.

Let Donald Trump go home and play Chinese Checkers. There’s only ONE WAY to win in this nation… work the fundamentals, keep your EYE on the ball, follow through, and no one wins ALONE. We STAND united.

 

And once we are victorious, we will celebrate in every city across this land, but we will be celebrating in remembrance OF… not in boastful pride of our accomplishments.

 

That day cannot come soon enough.

Let History Be Our Guide

It is becoming increasingly CLEAR… the longer we wait, the more this becomes permanent. The larger the SCAR will become. And on DAY ONE, the Senate Majority Leader sent the United States Senate HOME FOR THE WEEKEND, knowing the spread of the virus was exponential. DAYS. Lost.

In order to SAVE LIVES, the doctors and scientists of the United States tell us we must STAY HOME. We are doing as required by science and by LAW… and the Senate Majority Leader tells the States, if they can’t cut it they should just file for BANKRUPTCY.

The leadership of the Senate GOP wishes to revert to the Articles of Confederation, a system we rejected over 200 years ago! The majority of the Republican Party currently advocates for political de-evolution.

 

… let them.

 

If they choose to fight for a lost cause, let history inform them as to their Party’s fate; cast aside and forgotten along with their political predecessors… Our sight is FUTURE FOCUSED. Let history be our GUIDE.

 

The NOISE… in this moment, the noise becomes deafening. Deflect and distract, not to our benefit, but to our detriment. It’s hard to find a TRUE bearing within all this chaos. The polarity shift within our political spheres has pushed this nation to its extremes. Divided us on things as basic as TRUTH and FACTS… at a time when we should be UNITED.

LIVES are in the balance, yet elected officials in the Senate unite behind a President, asking in GOOD FAITH, if we should investigate using cleaning supplies as a treatment for COVID-19.

Hey! You know… if it had never been investigated before NOW, in all those years of use on kitchen countertops and in toilet bowls… he might have a strong point.

 

With every passing day, with every insanity uttered. With every life LOST, the agenda of the Senate Majority Leader is laid BARE before his constituents and the American People. Continuing his lust for political power and electoral supremacy in this moment transforms his actions; from something simply unseemly or distasteful, into something historically adjudicated as being complicit.

 

But these agendas are NOT OURS. These agendas and ill-informed opinions are not those held by the MAJORITY. And, once again… this fall the people must choose the lesser of two evils:

 

Damned if you DO or Damned if you DON’T.

 

It’s time for the SYSTEM to change… it’s time for the system to represent the PEOPLE from whom it receives its POWER.

 

The vaccine is in human trials. May they proceed safely… then let us be on our way. This quarantine cannot end until either TESTING for the virus and it’s antibodies is widespread, OR a vaccine is mass-produced. Until then, we must proceed with CAUTION. The choice is CLEAR when cast in this light, yet the Governor of Georgia wants everybody in his State to go out and get a HAIRCUT… while the infection rate continues to GROW.

We have the ability to SAVE LIVES, simply by STAYING HOME. The only reason people want to go back to work, is because the United States Government has FAILED to take care of the PEOPLE first… the CORE of our economic engine. Instead of ensuring FOOD and SHELTER for EVERY AMERICAN until this pandemic is over, The United States Senate has focused on business owners… hoping their kindness and generosity would trickle down.

 

To that I say, let HISTORY be their guide.

 

 

 

Once again, every American Citizen knows better than Donald J. Trump what the best course of action is to SAVE LIVES… yet he does not act. He goes to great lengths to do the opposite of what is necessary. Just like his businesses, all the risk is on someone ELSE. When things go south… he’ll just WALK AWAY.

 

 

 

Our laws have been set up to enable people like him to be successful. Donald Trump is the shining example of what the GOP wants this nation to BE… and to that end is how they LEGISLATE.

 

 

To my ears, a call for a return to normal just rings hollow. I would not send my children to school next week… or next month. I would not go and get a haircut right now. I fear putting the life of my stylist in jeopardy more than anything else… because he is a black man. Even though I have Type 1 diabetes and am at higher risk, I know I have better health insurance than he does.

How would I justify a decision like that to his FAMILY?
