Deaths now at 20 times that from 9/11

9/11 had 2977 fatalities and over 6000 injured (*)

The US is at 60,757 deaths from Coronavirus now (*). And over a million cases with an unknown percentage of them facing serious long-term health problems.

The death count is over 20 times 9/11. Twenty times. And we're far from being done with the body bags.

We fundamentally changed our society and started two wars because of 9/11.

What will our response to this be?

Rejection of science deniers?
Realization that elections matter?
Admitting that good government matters?

Maybe even thinking that health care, housing and food are basic rights?
Perhaps rejection of greed, alternate facts and Fox News?
Noticing that we really are a society and we are all in this together?

Or will Fox News and the sociopaths in power win the day and the idiots will continue to have us by our throats?

WC Fields famously said "Never give a sucker an even break or smarten up a chump." (*).

Perhaps this is enough for voters to notice we've all been played for chumps and suckers.

3. Dictatorship

Not just of holding onto power, they're having dreams of total power. The senate demonstrated that there are no effective controls now other than the courts. And those only for a while longer.
