Had Trump not been president:

Had Trump not been president:


The Directorate of Global Health Security and Biodefense would not have been disbanded in 2018.
The CDC experts embedded within Beijing would have still been in place
COVID would never have been called a "hoax".
The President would never have promised cases "close to zero soon" with no factual basis.
Political leaders would not be hosting superspreader events.
We would have wasted little to no time blaming China.
US citizens would never have been fed misinformation about hydroxychloroquine and injecting disinfectants and warm weather making the disease disappear.
There would have been calls for shared sacrifice to pull through.
The Post Office would have sent masks to every American in April 2020.
The Defense Production Act would have been invoked to accelerate manufacture of protective gear and medical equipment.

I mean, that shit is just off the top of my head.

People are going to crap on anyone's handling of it... but he really never once did the right thing at all at any point because he refused to listen to anyone about it. Now Trump cultists have to double down on his stupidity because they can't backtrack or it will indeed make him and themselves look stupid.

2. Sure they would!

but only those in his current favor and it would not be free. The orange goon would take his cut from the price of every shot.*

* which would be around 50 ~ 60%. Note that I wrote "price" and not "cost." The price would be whatever the shot giver felt like charging, not a cost based on expenses of production and a reasonable margin of profit.

Will we ever be free of these cultists?

4. Had Al Gore been president, there would have been no 9/11.

He would have taken the threat in the PDB seriously. Imagine a world where it did not happen.

We hafta get rid of that damn Electoral College.

5. Yes. Imagine where the nation and world would be if...

there had been no republican presidents, W Bush and trump being the most recent and worst of the lot. No Iraq War and the lives lost, no covid spread and millions lost. Infrastructure revamping would've started under Pres. O and still be going strong now with millions having had at least a decade of good jobs from the massive construction projects nationwide. Prosperity would reign as it did in the 50s, shared by everyone and not just the white population. God! It's frustrating to think about.

The republican party is a danger to the world, and we have Manchin and Sinema playing footsie with them. I so agree that the EC has to go, and so does the filibuster which is giving Manchin his 15 minutes of undeserved fame/attention.

Since McTurtle has annnounced that he, again as during O's time, will obstruct the Dem agenda to no end, leaving no possibility of bi-partisanship, there is no standing in Manchin and Sinema's positions anymore. The Dems really need to go after them hard, publicly ridiculing them even for their Quixotic kissing up to the GOP.
