India's Lesson

.

Did we not learn India's lesson?: no gatherings, wear the masks - the variants are mutating as I type. Kids are to be vaccinated next, if the grown-ups get their jab and stop being americans. It is not Constitutional, personal, Tweetable (sorry dontee, banned for life - they use to hang traitors!) or anything else other than a health and life issue. 
.

Joey B wants to share patents for vaccines with the world - good luck with giving away the best Capitalist's power (and economic) lever ever to come our pharmaceutical companies way. We can name our price. Dear EU, WHO, UN lesser states did not fight a 20 year war while you enjoyed growing GDP's. I told ya we broke! We broke! 

.

Only YOU can help us rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, India, Dem Repub of Congo, and  EU in the vaccine game late. Price list to follow. Joey B agreed to protect patents and NOT give formulas to anybody foreign and governmental  Oops! We are now voted a threat to democracy (small d) because we are not picking up the tab for: nuclear deals, food, life saving vaccines, victims of other countries wars. Good luck Afghanistan. We will be making computer chips, making our own medicines, and feeding and educating future millionaire Black people! (You see what I did there?)
.

That said, a new "tweeked" vaccine is out for variants and today I heard coctails of different vaccines is recommended. It is a last hot time, a great game sweetheart. "Here's lookin' at you, kid." So, we open up everywhere, except the libraries, and watch the glaciers melt. Hope for chips and fewer billionaires. Gotta go reserve my seat for Bez's $200k trip around the galaxy. We will save the world in 2023 if the creek don't rise or our West Coast doesn't do the phoenix routine around then. Ally and friendship are lovely words.
.

India, we saved the world from ISIS, perhaps you can save us from ourselves. 40% of us can't get to the vaccine or don't want it. Go figure! It is expiring in thousands of doses. I hope it is over, but if not and we start droppin' like bats outta Hell, proverbial tze tze flies, like hints, remember, somebody told usa so.

You took all the frustration

You took all the frustration that has simmering inside me and unleashed it in this unflinching and meteoric takedown of our self-serving and pathetically self-destructive system in its hour of testing. It really does all come down to money even when lives are hanging in the balance. It always was that way, but this crisis has brought it into stark relief like nothing ever has. 

 

Perhaps a few will listen. Well said!

Thanks patriciajj

The world is in mental collapse. Terror of death does that. I imagine waking up in India each morning is a hard day's beginning with a question. Is it my day or someone I love? Babies are dying - children. Science is ambiguous - open economy but distance and wear mask but outside, no mask is okay. How do you come up with definition of a crowd, under 100, under 50 gather is okay but socially distance. 71 years of equivocation, you'd think I would have it figured out by now. Time to go out and be socially awkward I guess. Stay healthy. ~S~

Don't be so pessimistic my friend

we shall overcome the pandemic curse sooner or later. But how many people are lost is what is disturbing. Schools closed since one & half years. Millions are infected. Thousands dying. None can say for certain which is the right thing to do in such a situation. Bats or cats does it make any difference  ?! Out here the common man can't afford medical care in a hospital. No money  ... No jobs.. Yet we Indians are hopeful

You Are There

I am here. Hope is defined in us. The survivors. Vaccine will begin to reach India in bigger numbers soon. 500 million over next 2 years and other  countries will join COVAX and the trillion doses will happen, then two trillion world-wide! Hope indeed. We are alive!
