US governors told in February that pandemic would get “much worse,” but did not alert public – World Socialist Web Site

Everyone knew, and nobody told us? It seems that the duty of government is to inform us, if not warn us, of what was coming.
Why did we not hear of this earlier?
Lack of a response, perhaps, but still, Director Redfield is supposed to live by a code of ethics that holds him to a higher standard. That is, higher than Governors, we hope.
It seems that everyone conspired to keep the public in the dark about the coming pandemic. That decision was wrong, and it cost lives.

WSWS –

In a secret meeting, 25 US governors were told: “The coronavirus outbreak is going to get much, much worse before it gets better.”

Amy Coney Barrett: Trump’s Pick to Replace RBG Would Try to Erase RBG – Rolling Stone

So, she has seven kids, a husband who is the master of the house, and she is soldier of Christ, who believes John Roberts over-stepped when he let the Affordable Care Act stand. She also believes Roe v Wade can be rolled back: how far no one knows, but let’s face it, ladies, this gal is not looking out for your best interests, unless you think your husband should run the show. I can imagine many women chuckling at the thought, as they sharpen a kitchen knife.

One interesting note; Amy is a strict textualist when it comes to the Constitution. We wonder if she also follows the Bible that same way?

To sum up, if you went to Catholic School, then a religious college, then read the law at Notre Dame, you may have somewhat of a religious slant that never leaves you alone.


For anyone who cares about RBG’s legacy — and about the future of the people she spent her life protecting — this is truly terrifying.

Social distress mounts in the US as new weekly jobless claims rise to 870,000 – World Socialist Web Site

“It will all go away.”

Charleston, SC was booming before the pandemic. Now there are reports that over 400 businesses will not be reopening. Whole sectors of the economy are still in limbo after almost six months of being shut down. Retail, already in dire straits, is collapsing. Hotels are closing for good. These businesses are handing the keys to the banks. What the banks are going to do is anyone’s guess.
This economic upset is far from over, despite what any candidate says. We are in for a sea change the likes of which we have not seen in our lifetime.
And no one in government is talking about it…

The number of active unemployment claims, 24.1 million in total, far surpasses anything seen during the Great Recession of 2008-2009.

Trump’s coup d’état election – World Socialist Web Site

Is this the great leader the far right is so proud of? Willing to destroy the peaceful transfer of power if things don’t go his way? How much of our republic has to be torn asunder for the GOP to come to its defense?

The coward’s response is that Donald Trump is just spouting off, that he would never refuse the will of the people.

The President is a braggart, but that is no reason to ignore the profound implications of this type of talk from our leader. Have you no sense of decency, Mr. President?

Trump has publicly declared that he will not transfer power peacefully if he loses the November 3 election.

WHO condemns governments’ failure to prepare for pandemic – World Socialist Web Site

The problem with nationalism is there is no such thing in a global market. We all work with each other, make each other’s goods, and interact. We share everything, and that includes germs. But when it comes time to unite against a common enemy, we act independently.

The pandemic has exposed the contradiction between the highly integrated nature of modern society and the outmoded and irrational nation-state system of capitalism.

Trump’s Middle East deal and the dead end of bourgeois nationalism – World Socialist Web Site

Two peoples that you do not want to be in middle east are the Kurds and the Palestinians. Donny has abandoned them both.

The so-called “peace” agreements between Israel and two Arab monarchies signed on the White House lawn Tuesday are only the latest in the long record of betrayals of the Palestinian people.
