Wow! Where did this wind just suddenly come from?
Wait, that’s no wind. That’s a win, and that’s the American people, and global citizens, reacting to the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris victory in the US election!
Congratulations, Joe, Kamala, and citizens of the world!!!
It’s so sad that the first thought I had when I heard of Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis was that it was a convenient lie to bolster many of his agendas, his own “fake news”, if you will. What’s sadder, though, is that we have not only someone willing and capable of doing this, but that someone is leading the United States of America. Furthermore, what’s saddest is that it is to try and usurp one of our most cherished institutions – democracy.
So what has the farting Trumpeter got to gain by faking a COVID-19 diagnosis? Let me count the ways:
Important: This is NOT an anti-masking post. It is a scientific experiment to show facts regarding what a COVID-19 mask wearer might have to deal with in partly breathing their own breath back in with every breath, so the wearer can be informed and decide when they would want to do it and not within the law, not against the law. The decision is not to obey or disobey the law, but rather to obey the law and do something requiring mask wearing, or abstain from it because the impact isn’t worth the activity. For example, go shopping in a mall with a mask (required where I am), or not and do online shopping or window shopping from the street, NOT go shopping in a mall without a mask.
The US flew past 100,000 COVID-19 cases today, just a day after passing China’s total of about 81,000. It’s at 104,000 as I write this.
With world totals at 596,000 cases at this time, the US has 17.4% of the world’s cases, and the US has barely started climbing “the curve” that won’t be flattening any time soon!
To have more than the rest of the world, the US needs to hit 50.01% of world totals. That doesn’t seem a stretch, to be honest, the way the US rates are climbing and knowing how they are still far behind in testing all the people they should.
The math isn’t that hard to see. One day soon enough, the US WILL have more COVID-19 cases than the rest of the world combined.
It’s just a matter of when… not if, very sadly.
