Hey there!

Good Morning. I woke up late -- but got a good sleep last nite.

So with that, let's go back to 3 years ago.
May 2018
The Trump Administration disbands the White House pandemic response team.

July 2019
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) epidemiologist embedded in China’s disease control agency left the post, and the Trump Administration eliminated the role.

Oct. 2019
“Currently, there are insufficient funding sources designated for the federal government to use in response to a severe influenza pandemic.”

Jan. 22, 2020
“We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”

Jan. 24, 2020
Trump praises China’s handling of the coronavirus: “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

Jan. 28, 2020
“This will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency...This is going to be the roughest thing you face" Trump’s National Security Advisor to Trump

Jan. 30, 2020
"The lack of immune protection or an existing cure or vaccine would leave Americans defenseless in the case of a full-blown coronavirus outbreak on US soil,...This lack of protection elevates the risk of the coronavirus evolving into a full-blown pandemic, imperiling the lives of millions of Americans.” (Memo from Trump Trade Advisor Peter Navarro)


Timeline here


This is insanity.

Morning

Well I got mom and I scheduled for boosters on the 22nd, though right now I'm at the frustration level of what the point - repubs aren't going to be happy until we're all sick. And with trumpkin going into VA means its going to be worse here.


I hate everything right now.

Morning all.

If you didn't see yesterday - we are pigless. Miss Lemonade went over the Rainbrow Bridge yesterday afternoon. At least she made it through holiday break with Javi. He went back to school yesterday, having to say goodbye.

I am so sorry to hear this. It is hard saying goodbye to a pet.

Good morning, bloggers!!!

I fear that history will judge how we handled the pandemic very harshly. Many who died would have lived if we, as a nation and a world, acted with better judgment.

I have online planning sessions but I am still under COVID-19 isolation. (I am not feeling too badly.)

Also, my heart goes out to the families and friends of those who lost loved ones in the fire in the Bronx. This is a tragedy.

One would hope that history will be a little more discerning than to judge the entire population by the horrible actions of a few.

I know that's rough. Sorry to hear of it.

I would hope so, but I think that many will ask how this happened. In mitigation of a harsh judgment, I should point out that many governors and regional officials acted responsibly. Unfortunately, we had a President and an administration that showed its utter incompetence.

Mornin' all!

Well I'm pretty sure I have a sinus infection. Half my face is blown up like a balloon!

I hope you can get some anti-biotics for that.

I hope that you can see your doctor soon. In the interim, maybe a humidifier might help.
