When the politicians blame each other, before you join a side, remember how lackluster they always are. We pay them with our taxes, and in actions they frequently exclude the "for the people" bit, as they fail us and wont listen. The sideline and the fence are reasonable positions. You don't have to join either team. You can demand better. Abandon the parties, they will never catch up to the times. We need new ideas for the information age. We know too much, and they are slow and dangerous to us.

"It's Trump's fault".... "I'm not responsible for the increase of deaths due to COVID!"... "The vaccine (fastest in history) took too long".... ~ Joe Biden practicing in front of a mirror for his first day in the white house.

It's being overported. Regardless why is the establishment blocking cheap vaccines, and treatments like Ivermectin? Vitamin D deficiency? An estimated 40% of American adults may be vitamin D deficient. For African-Americans, that number may be nearly double at 76% according to a new study by The Cooper Institute. Previous studies have shown that African-American adults have higher rates of vitamin D deficiency and obesity, as well as lower levels of cardiorespiratory fitness when compared with other groups. Across the board, African-American adults are generally at greater risk for a number of chronic and potentially life-shortening conditions such as hypertension, stroke, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease and all-cause mortality, some of which is associated with vitamin D deficiency. https://www.cooperinstitute.org/2019/09/24/african-americans-at-greatest-risk-of-vitamin-d-deficiency https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-astrazeneca-vaccin-idUSKBN28J38K U.S. should not wait too long on AstraZeneca vaccine https://nypost.com/2021/01/04/hair-lice-drug-may-cut-risk-of-covid-19-death-by-80-percent/ LIVING Cheap hair lice drug may cut risk of COVID-19 death by 80 percent: study By Hannah Sparks January 4, 2021 | 11:06am A simple treatment for COVID-19 could be cheaper than 20 bucks — and familiar to most grade school nurses. Head lice drug ivermectin is being explored as a potential treatment for the coronavirus following a promising new study that showed an 80% reduction in hospitalized COVID-19 patient deaths. Just 8 out of 573 patients who received ivermectin passed away, compared to the 44 individuals out of 510 who died after being given a placebo. An earlier study of the antiparasitic prescription drug, which costs between $17 and $43 for a course of treatment, according to GoodRx, revealed promising results in April — by removing all viral RNA within 48 hours of a single dose. https://minorityhealth.hhs.gov/omh/browse.aspx?lvl=4&lvlid=25 African American women have the highest rates of obesity or being overweight compared to other groups in the United States. About 4 out of 5 African American women are overweight or obese. In 2018, non-Hispanic blacks were 1.3 times more likely to be obese as compared to non-Hispanic whites. In 2018, African American women were 50 percent more likely to be obese than non-Hispanic white women. From 2013-2016, non-Hispanic black females were 2.3 times more likely to be overweight as compared to non-Hispanic white females. People who are overweight are more likely to suffer from high blood pressure, high levels of blood fats, diabetes and LDL cholesterol – all risk factors for heart disease and stroke.1 In 2018, African Americans were 20 percent less likely to engage in active physical activity as compared to non-Hispanic whites. Systemic racism or willful ingnorance?

How many people died from other viruses during this time period. In fact when they test for covid19, they can't differentiate what is flu, pneumonia or covid19. So they assume everyone has covid19.
