How Valuable Is A Child's Life? - And Response

Monday, July 13, 2020

If you support Trump after learning he will withhold funds from public schools unless the schools reopen on time then there is nothing anyone can say to help you realize the true nature of Donald Trump. But if you care, research just a few of his past statements.

“Like a miracle, the virus will disappear in the summer.”

“The outbreak will be temporary.”

“Coronavirus numbers are looking much better, going down everywhere.”

“Anybody who needs a test gets a test.”

"COVID-19 is a hoax.”

“I’ve always known this is real...this is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.”

Are you willing to take a chance on your child’s future? Are you willing to take a chance on the health of our teachers?

Today Dr. Fauci is under attack. No surprise there.

Perhaps Cecilia Lewis should do some research and see what the alleged top infectious disease expert in the country said about the coronavirus:

This is not a major threat to the people of the United States and this is not something that the citizens of the United States should be worried about right now,” Dr. Fauci told Newsmax’s Greg Kelly on January 21.   

"It isn't something the American public needs to worry about or be frightened about, because we have ways of preparing and screening of people coming in [from China]," National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y., per The Hill. 

January 26

Fauci doesn't want people to worry about coronavirus, the danger of which is "just minuscule." But he does want them to take precautions against the "influenza outbreak, which is having its second wave."  February 17- USA Today

FAUCI: No. Right now at this moment, there is no need to change anything that you’re doing on a day-by-day basis.  Right now the risk is still low, but this could change. I’ve said that many times, even on this program. You got watch out, because although the risk is low now, you don’t need to change anything you’re doing. When you start to see community spread, this could change, and force you to become much more attentive to doing things that would protect you from, spread.  Today Show 2-29

Police Targeting And The "Good Trouble Ride"

I think Marie Mott is confusing targeting with openly breaking the law when she is quoted as saying, "The sheriff brought charges against me and C-Grimey, and the CPD brought charges against me and C-Grimey and several other people. The police have been targeting us because we've been putting pressure on them. We've been messing with the city's money.” I can only laugh as these ... (click for more)
