On the 2020 virtual campaign trail, Joe Biden vowed (words to the effect) that, if elected as the next POTUS, he’d get the pandemic under control by allowing medical science to trump political science.
This past Sunday, during the President’s interview with 60 Minutes correspondent / anchor Scott Pelley, mid-term election year, political science overruled and forced Joe to go off script; to declare recklessly…
“The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with Covid. We’re still doing a lot of work on it … but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing.”Joseph Biden • 18 September 2022
Not so fast… say two POLITICO reporters, who debunk realistically…
“Despite Biden’s statement, Covid has continued to exact a toll in the United States and around the world. The John Hopkins [sic]* Coronavirus Resource Center lists more than 2 million Covid cases in the country in the last 28 days, with hundreds dying from the disease every day.” [Read Full Article Here]David Cohen and Adam Cancryn • 09/18/2022 08:47 PM EDT
Not so fast… say I, too. Let’s now rewind, replay and rehash the POTUS’ injudicious words and illogic; namely, “If you notice, no one’s wearing masks”, ergo, “Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape.”
Yes, Mr. Biden, unfortunately, I HAVE NOTICED, first hand, the maskless masses; and, trust me, that is hardly the accomplishment you may believe it to be. Au contraire, this is not only the epitome of alarming, human selfishness, thoughtlessness and recklessness, it’s also one of the major reasons why THE PANDEMIC IS NOT OVER; why the Coronavirus (fully capable of routinely, prolifically reinventing itself), may even result in vaccine resistant variants.
To say the very least… it’s that anti-mask pigheadedness that I find so baffling and maddening. My gawd, it’s merely a piece of cloth, folks! WTF is so tough about covering the ol’ honker and pie hole when we’re milling about crowded, indoor, public milieus? Why the calloused disregard for (hatred towards?) members of our human family?
To say a bit more… there may be one glimmer of reality to be found within Biden’s “good shape” quip; specifically his qualifying word, “seems”; which makes it seem as if he had attempted some in-real-time, walking back of his own words.
Let’s hope that’s a good sign that Biden is fully aware of these truths, which should be self-evident…
- In life, things are NOT ALWAYS what they seem to be
- Of all of those things, the coronavirus must top the list
- Every seemingly good leader must be mindful of all that
Politics must never trump Science… disrespect Corona-V (and its “descendants”) and Covid-19 will hang around / plague humanity until the years 2219, 2220; 2221 and 2222… if not longer.
Be humans Vaxxed OR Unvaxxed, We
can still shed and spread the batcrap
crazy contagious coronavirus which,
in turn, spawns new variants; which,
in turn, could, eventually, render the
available vaccines worthless; which,
in turn, will drag out the pandemic’s
needless suffering, illness and death!
HENCE… this easy as pie, cover your
nose and pie-hole/hole-up heads-up:
Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!

A reread of my posted content revealed a common error (not my own); the particulars follow…
* “Though some mistakenly refer to the man or his institutions as “John” Hopkins, the “s” in his name belongs there: He was named for his great-grandmother, Margaret Johns, the daughter of Richard Johns, who owned a 4,000-acre estate in Calvert County, Maryland.”
