Everything under HHS, including the FDA, is going to be manipulated to place you in harm's way if it means keeping Trump out of jail.

True.  Still, the degree the rest of the world will have any faith in these institutions may be a bit tempered.

Didn't you hear?  94% of those were totes not killed by COVID according to the CDC.  It's their comorbidity that killed them.  They had COVID, but they would surely have survived if they didn't have COPD, diabetes, or the fatness.

/'cause we so do that for MIs, pneumonias, and other acute syndromes made worse by associated comorbidities

Oh you sweet summer child
You miss the point

Trump is an armature, with no ambition greater than himself
And he wrapped your precious "constitutional republic" in knots

So just imagine what would happen if someone like me shows up
Your nation is divided
Your bureaucracies are decrepit

The next time you won't be this lucky
The next tyrant will arrive with a plan

Maybe not, but for 190k and counting - it was ruined for the rest of their life.

With Trump trying so hard to force States to do things they don't want to do, I think Democrats have suddenly become the party of States' rights.

Unfortunately, that's kind of like an everyone-for-themselves scenario where a ship crashed into an iceberg that the captain spent four-years searching for during what was supposed to be a cruise in the Caribbean.

Let me know when the State department is rebuilt and foreign govs trust America again.  Let me know when the Department of Health is rebuilt and Americans can trust the FDA and CDC directives. Let me know when the EPA starts being interested in safe air and water and the impacts of climate change on Americans.  Pick your favourite gov agency. The Trump admin has gutted them.  It will take decades to rebuild them with competent bureaucrats and professionals.

I heard someone use this phrase when talking to me about covid and I wanted to slap the farking taste our of their mouth.

Yeah that guy had copd. Yes he was going to die from it. Covid sped it the fark up you stupid motherfarkers.

Comorbidity is trump's toadies way to try and down play the virus and a bunch of stupid farking people will repeat it up to the damn grave.

We need to start applying DNRs on people calling it a hoax. fark you, science doesnt believe in you either.

Sorry am still pissed and dont want you to think I was ranting at you, more with you.

I'm with you.  Plenty of people live, or survive depending, just fine with comorbidities.  Like with COPD they might haul around an O2 tank if it's bad, but they're still alive. They catch COVID though and croak, COVID is what killed them while everything else was a contributing factor.  Same as if the flu, a pneumonia, or other respiratory disease killed them.

/without going in to the actual literal cause of death

Obvious from the *instant* the MAGA-hat showed up in the Senate Covid hearing.

Thanks, MAGAts.  Some of this shiat y'all destroyed will be nearly impossible ("nearly" if we're lucky) to recover.

186,000 dead Americans and we're just getting started.  With no hope of even trying to start to get started for five more months.

The blood is on your hands, assholes.

Yeah, trying to explain to them the prefix "co" means "together" usually is met with a blank stare, as they're too busy with hillbillyin' to understand simple grammar.

Tangent to that, isn't it hilarious that the "English as the national language" contingent are often the most illiterate motherfarkers?

Was the headline about victims of COVID or about ruining government institutions?  There's a big difference and you're changing the topic.

No, it's precisely my grasp of history that informs me the institutions we have outlive the people.  Believe it or not this country has been through far worse.  Just because it hasn't happened in your lifetime doesn't mean it hasn't happened.

Which is why we have a system that enables us to correct and prepare.  Don't expect the same loopholes to exist in the future.

Another concerned Fark Canadian lamenting US Politics.  Hmmm.

It will not take decades.  The worst damage is in the judiciary but government agencies can be rebuilt in a budget cycle or two.

Installation is not repair. A sympathetic executive and legislative branch can move quickly to restore previous levels of service and replace toadies with competent administrators.

If this damage will take decades to undo then every single Bernie Sanders promise of sweeping change is misleading, because there's no way THAT MUCH reform can be enacted during 4-8 years.  Right?

Obama was stifled by the Tea Party after 2 years and he still accomplished enough reform that Trump is still trying to erase it.  The key is to never let the GOP do this shiat again.  And the key to that is to stop whining and start voting, every election, however difficult it may be.
