• 2020 vs. 2021

    From Dumas Walker@VERT/CAPCITY2 to ALL on Sun Nov 28 09:47:00 2021
    2020: A new COVID virus is causing an epidemic in China. Trump suggests
    that we should close our border to travelers from China.

    The Peanut Gallery ( + Nancy Pelosi and several other Democrat politicians): "RACIST! RACIST! RACIST! ORANGE MAN BAD! RACIST!"

    2021: A new COVID variant is found in several countries in Southern
    Africa, plus in Hong Kong, China. BOTH the Biden Administration, and the Trudeau Administration, close the border of their respective countries to travelers from those Southern African countries, but NOT to China or Hong
    Kong.

    The Peanut Gallery: <crickets>

    If you look up the word "hypocrite" in the dictionary, it will just say "see Lefties".

    I reject your reality and suggest my own:

    2020: A new COVID virus is detected. Action is taken. Some too
    restrictive, some not enough. The world rebels against the
    vaccine. The vaccine's rapid development was pushed by the
    Trump administration.

    2021 and on: The world is fatigued of restrictions and even
    those that would support rapid reactions no longer suport it.

    2020 an ensuing years: RACIST!, Facist!, and more ill-informed
    comments from all sides of the ailse. Remember, globally, there
    are more sides than "left" and "right."

    The only way we are going to get out of this is if we join our
    thoughts to form a pathway forward, whatever that may be.

    Every tool suggested to fight the pandemic has been rejected
    by some group or another. Leadership, real leadership, is needed
    to join the oppositions together and develop real, acceptable,
    sustainable solutions.

    COVID-19 is with us, very potentially, forever. It will mutate,
    just as the yearly influenza mutates, only faster.

    Denying reality is dangerous. Denying that we have possible
    solutions is willfull ignorance.

    Now, before I get called a "lefty" or a "righty," I'm neither.
    I think the people, you and I, have been left behind by our
    respective governments. We are not heard. Left, middle, right,
    we are not heard.

    What we need are not moderates. What we need are people that are
    working together regardles of their opinions.

    We don't have that.
