Biden has already done more than Trump

Bidens team will get this straightened out. Give them a little time. 100m doses in 100 days is unobtainable because the manufacturers can't produce that much yet. I'll let him slide if it's only half or a little more. But his team will tackle this. He's a smart man that has chosen smart people. I'm glad we have him and Kamala. Really glad.

I can't imagine trying to fix the insane swath of garbage and junk left behind by his predecessor. It sounds almost fun, but not 78-year old fun.

He'll get it straightened out, and Republicans will disparage him for not doing it fast enough.

National lockdown.

End Florida's foolishness immediately.

My worry are all the Republicans and Trumpers who refuse to take the vaccine.

Republican states who downplayed this should get 0 until every blue state has been 100% vaccinated.

lol

The media will be breathing down his neck and writing up pieces on why he hasn't solved the crisis by Jan 20 12:01PM.

And, it will keep continuing as they demand the Democrats just do something (just forget that the Republicans were not held to such accord).

Oh well.

No politicide. Jared Kushner and Ron DeSantis target Americans for death based on their politics, it's wrong and it's a crime.

Recognize the bioterrorists as bioterrorists and treat them as such.

"I don't want to wear a mask" - that isn't politics, that's bioterrorism.

A national lockdown would make the Republicans scream as if they're being murdered anyway.

It's almost as if the function of the media, which is owned by a collection of rich sociopaths, is to protect the political interests of a party that is run by the same collection of rich sociopaths. Imagine that.

Give it a few weeks, Biden's going to get the band back together.

We used to have a national pandemic response team, and we might not be able to get the lead guitarist back, and sure the drummer has a new girlfriend whose couch he's crashing on, but, it's still enough to make it to Battle of the Bands in time to win it to play at prom.

Wait, what the hell are we talking about

Yep. The media used to be called the "4th estate". They used to have a function. Sadly, it's gone.

Oh well.

I get the feeling Trump is going to have a sudden total awareness of all of America's problems once he leaves office tomorrow.

But no social media to share it from. 😆

That's pretty much what he did on Twitter before he was president.

I wanna see smokejumpers. Situation's already on fire - drop in folks who can assess, decide, and act with ruthless impunity. Put out fires, throw out arsonists, do what needs to be done with focus and determination.

Who wouldn't take a turn at doing that with CTF members who've spent more time lying to us than doing their jobs, honestly?

Purple_Urkle: National lockdown.


From the top down, that is simply not possible. You have to get the states to decide for themselves. Not saying it can't be done but there is more too it than Biden just flipping a switch. Also, the US is so big and diverse, that a full nationwide lockdown would be hunting cockroaches with a bazooka. States, counties, and municipalities need a tiered approach based upon case load.
 
2021-01-20 1:12:22 AM  
Every department that didn't work with the Biden team during the transfer should have the Trump-appointed department head brought out to explain the causes of any delay.

Basically a repetition of "You had since Dec 16 to brief me and my team what is going on, and you didn't.  Now you get to brief me and the American people.  After you have answered my questions to my satisfaction, you get to answer any questions the reporters have.  If you leave this briefing room before I give you permission, you're fired."

See how many of them are competent, and how many got their position due to campaign donations

I mean, just look at how Biden handled Hurricane Maria, or what he did to the national debt. Totally incompetent!

How many thousands of doses have been... redirected?  By Trump?  By a supplier?  By a local doctor?

A generous stimulus package focused on people and small businesses, but that is contingent upon a state's participation in the national lockdown, might be enough to make it happen. States under a strict lockdown would need the most financial support, it makes sense to target the funds that way, and it is a hell of a motivator for individual states to get on-board.


If any still refused that, threaten to cut highway funding. If that somehow still doesn't work, just farking wall them off at that point for all I care.

Thousands?  Judging by how Team Trump stole PPE from blue states, you're low by an order of magnitude or two...

Can they also explain to the reporters what they know about the Biden's and China and Joe's fark ups over his 50;years running for President?

He's got good peeps.  Count on it.

All the hard work is already done.  The vaccines are already developed, and being manufactured on massive scale.  All Biden needs to do is make sure it gets delivered.

Ironically, had they followed the Ikea instructions for Covid, we'd be in a much better place now.

Biden won't straighten anything out... he'll state what he wants, and through a cabinet full of competent people (for the first time in 4 farking years), everything will get on track within a week.

Because that's what good presidents do, surround themselves with quality people. God damn i can't wait for shiat to start healing and moving forward.. like a normal presidency.

This would've been funnier, except I remembered mid-laugh that this is exactly what MAGA-loving insurrectionist assholes did in the halls of Congress, with that douchebag's incitement & approval.
