From the Depths


Each day this week seems to contain new revelations about White House deceit and intentional mismanagement related to the coronavirus. 

Yesterday's revelations were, in my mind, a bombshell. Experts estimate that 58,000 American lives could have been saved had the U.S. taken action just two weeks sooner. By comparison, there were 58,220 combat casualties during the Vietnam War which stretched from 1964-1975. 

Trump, in Bob Woodward Interview, Said He Played Down Virus’s Severity

A story in the Wall Street Journal describes the situation as reported in a new book by Bob Woodward of The Washington Post. Playing down the severity of the virus cost American lives. Backtracking now doesn't change the loss of life and tragedy suffered by the families of those who could have been saved had the country begun moving sooner. 

It is sad, but Lincoln's government of, by, and for the people seems to have become a government against the people.
