    It is so difficult to wrap my head around his choices. You have to know someone reminded him multiple times and he decided to not place the order.

    Because Biden.

    Because Q and Trumpland are now anti-vaxxers.

    Trump is becoming more Nero every day.

    Justice will happen when most of the ambulances parked in the street at hospitals will be occupied by comatose morons wearing red MAGA hats.

    Fear of Trump

    Which has always seemed stupid to me.

    Flake and Corker seem pretty happy to me.

    I am sure that someone in the government failed to take up the option. It is not clear who was personally responsible. And there are other vaccines that are easier to transport and store.

    But many countries are priced out of the market.

    the GOP leadership that supported Trump throughout the impeachment process so as to give him a free pass for further abuse of power. The GOP leadership that supported his lies about election fraud when there was no evidence to do so. The GOP leadership that supported Trump’s abysmal lack of leadership.

    Yes, the president is human garbage, but the USA did not put all of her eggs in one basket. Considering the considerable cold chain logistics, with the avalibility of other therapies, it might may have not been such a bad decision. We will be getting 300 million doses of the Astra Zeneca vaccine, which only requires only refrigeration and is orders of magnitude cheaper to produce, for example, and others too.

    The availability of the vaccine does not seem to be the bottleneck so much as the distribution of it. They vaccinated 3 million New Yorkers in a week when the polio vaccine came out, why cant we do the same now?

    MIL in nursing home is scheduled for Jan 3. jab.


    Fundig for vaccine distribution is being held up by the spending bill that he refuses to sign.

    Easier to get rid of, though.

    In 68 AD, after his turbulent 13-year reign, the Roman senate ran out of patience and declared Nero a public enemy. Nero then fled, and on June 9, 68 AD, at the age of 30, he committed suicide. His death ended the Julio-Claudian dynasty.

    ^ imagine what it would be like if he served through eight years and was doing all this to get Don Jr. elected as his successor.

    And 71 million Americans prefer this kind of incompetence. This, like GW’s win in 2004, is a scary snap shot about what motivates a large number of Americans.

    I'm tellin' ya.

    Eugene Talmadge's son Herman served as governor, too.

    If Trump had a father who hadn't raped little Donnie's soul, and a lot less privilege, he would be truly dangerous.

    Not wanting to destroy the institutions, but to corrupt them to his long-term fleecing.

    Talmadge gave the base what they needed, while Trump steals from them with abandon.

    Favorite line from a stump speech, repeated at every whistle sop in Georgia: "I want y'all to know that I STOLE THAT MONEY, but I stole it for you farmers!!!"

    Re-elected by a landslide.

    It's bad that anyone is waiting for a vaccine. It's worse that there are many who won't have any for as long as years still. But if the vaccine we could've had is going to others isn't that a good thing? So someone else is first, it's not like the waiting is arbitrary or like those vaccine doses were lost or wasted.

    IMO, America deserves to let others go first for a while seeing how a major portion of our population has been so irresponsible and cavalier about the virus, and 'we' are sorta responsible for the whole pandemic being as bad as it got. If there were any such thing as cosmic justice the very last people to get a dose would the kids having the frat house covid parties, and the Trump rally attendees.

    Although theres certainly plenty to blame trump for theres a bottle neck somewhere when it comes to getting needles into arms. Look at the doses produced verses the actual doses administered. Something is way out of wack and its not clear to me whos fault it is.

    My post above notwithstanding (and it almost never is) if Obama, say, or Hillary had been the incumbent in the last three years leading up to this disaster, the entire response world-wide would've been different, and that includes the vaccine development and roll-out and probably also includes the covid parties and other places where the tired cranky children in charge just wanted to get together to do their special thing.

    Which makes that 71 million complicit, if not acessories to one of the larger mass killings the world has seen, and it aint over yet. The Trump party senators are accessories to the crime.

    The best part about Trump is he shows Republicans and “Libertarians” to be amoral lightweight clowns. Surprised they haven’t come here to whine how they don’t want to hear about Covid or it’s Faucis fault.

    Yes, and without funding some people may not get the needed second dose.
    Now he's gone. If only he'd be forgotten.

    Covid in Clifornia passes 2 mill. cases. Take care Joe and Rene.

    "It took more than nine months for California to record 1 million confirmed cases of COVID-19.It has taken less than six weeks to see 1 million more.
    Once regarded as a model for stopping the spread of COVID-19, California on Wednesday passed 2 million recorded cases of the deadly illness, reaching the milestone as Christmas approaches in the midst of the darkest and most dangerous days of the pandemic.
    Hundreds of people are dying from the virus in California each day. A crush of new patients is threatening to overwhelm hospitals. Even as vaccinations begin rolling out more widely and local health officials cling to signs in testing data that this devastating surge of the virus may be cresting, they are bracing for more deaths and fear that Christmas and New Year’s, like Thanksgiving before them, will fuel another devastating surge of cases as people unwittingly spread the virus among their friends and family members.
    “Our hospitals are at the brink — just about to be pushed over,” said Dr. Ahmad Kamal, director of health care preparedness for Santa Clara County, where just 35 intensive care unit beds remained available Tuesday. “Pick up your phone right now. Cancel any gathering with people who do not live with you.

    I read the newspapers on line. In the past couple days: There was an article about those in less developed countries and their lack of access to vaccines. There was an article about how the CDC did poorly in deploying tests.

    The Canadian government has options on a way more doses than will be needed for our domestic purposes. I understand that Trudeau plans on passing the surplus to poorer countries. I assume this will be foreign aid.
