As Pandemic Overwhelms Hospitals, 1/3 of Americans Live in Areas Where ICUs Close to Capacity

Look at what is happening in country and then compare to others - what is seen here is the dismal failure of a health and political system. This did not have to be this way but here we sit watching more and more die while our leaders on the highest level simply are wandering around in a fog following the same patterns that were set since WW2, cemented by the all the Presidents since then and controlled by a duopoly only interested in stifling any opposing narrative leaving it completely unable to react to problems this serious. We are paying the price. In the middle of a pandemic and depression all we are hearing is meaningless bickering without even the faintest hint of effective creative solutions.

Hey old people, this is a lot of words to say they are going to let us die so people of working age can live. We have been deemed a burden on society. There is even a word for it; senicide.

Hey, gig economy “essentials,” why are you wasting my time reading THIS? We’re awaiting our Amazon Gelato Freezer, InstaPot®, 1/4 keg of Pliny the Elder & reduced cruelity, fair trade, gluten free BRUNCH! If you want that $2 TIP, you’d best peddle your totally undocumented black ass over here!

Your intubated mom can’t actually see you ANYWAY?
