Original post made on Jul 17, 2020

Nothing but WISHFUL thinking.

NO ONE wants to tell the real truth.

This interruption of life is indefinite, just like Polio.

We should have frozen everything in early March, including all banking and financing to prevent the catastrophic losses we are still in and likely to get worse.

We should be provided with free shelter, food, information, utilities, and medical care until the situation is solved.

No one specific business should get any preferential treatments. In effect no paychecks should be paid, no bills should be paid, and no one should be threatened regarding shelter or finances until this situation is ended.

THIS IS THE PANDEMIC PLAN THAT NO ONE TALKS ABOUT BECAUSE THE RULING CLASS LOSES ALL CONTROL OVER THE PEOPLE DURING THE CRISIS. BUT THE RULING CLASS HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

Just a thought.

We'll have to start solving these problems in late January, once America has a real leader.

Not the guy who says his opponent is against 'windows'. It's shocking that my former Republican Party is against Fauci, and won't run a sane adult in Trump's place.

God help us till January.

I am trying to be optimistic.

England appears to have a possible vaccine treatment showing signs of working.

VUT

What happened to the expertise of Private Healthcare in the U.S.?

England has SOCIALIZED medicine, in fact they get their healthcare primarily from Single Payer plans.

This is demonstrating our healthcare system fails regarding Pandemics NOW.

Unlike when Polio hit and we had more public funded healthcare.

I am hopeful given that there is better science behind the English vaccine, but it makes the american scientists look really bad.
