And we wonder why we have the highest number of deaths and infections in the world.
I thought is was just a clueless Gov. Kemp, who didn’t know that COVID is contagious in asymptomatic people who have the infection.
But apparently, other Southern states are just as conflicting.
“Lumumba (Jackson MS mayor) said he fears that the state leadership has chosen to not work with the city for political reasons. Republican state leaders recently displayed that politicization, he said, when they met at the state capitol in Jackson earlier this month and did not follow basic protocols, including wearing masks or socially distancing from one another.
An outbreak at the capitol ensued — the lieutenant governor, the speaker of the Mississippi House of Representatives and dozens of other lawmakers came down with the virus — even though Lumumba had instituted a mask mandate for the city.”
Are we that obtuse as a nation, or is it just the Republicans who insist on killing Americans on some misguided principle?
No country is perfect, of course, but we might pay attention to Germany and how they handled, and still handle, this pandemic. I believe their unemployment hit an “astounding” 6%. Yes, they borrowed money, but not nearly to the extent we did because they actually had a surplus. And they beefed up their export markets long ago in spite of China.
True, we are not Germany. We are America and I guess “we showed them a thing or two”.
This last sentence is sarcastic and the quotes are mine and don’t reflect the view of management.
