Pandemic Note #17: Exponential Monthly Growth

By Michael March 29, 2020 0

While the leader of the free world makes plans to open parts of the country, if not all of the country, up for Easter Sunday church service, the US is number one in the world in Covid-19 cases.

The country is experiencing exponential growth in the number of deaths caused by the Coronavirus. In one month, the number of deaths went from 1to1000. In the last 48 hours, the total number of deaths double from 1000 to 2000. read more

Saying Goodbye to a Warrior Priest in a Pandemic

By Michael March 28, 2020 0

It’s written that it is “hard to say goodbye to yesterday.” But yesterday, Rev. Dr. Joesph Echols Lowery, in a death not related to Covid-19, moved from here to eternity.

Until yesterday, he was one of the few remaining architects of the civil rights movement that challenged and forced the cessation of the unequal treatment of Black people in the United States. This movement vicariously brought about equality to all minority groups in the country, including white women, or at least with more justice than had existed at the dawn of the 20th century. He was a man of the 20th century and was blessed to live until the 20th year of the 21st century. read more

Pandemic Note #16: “Don’t Be A Cutie-Pie, Okay?”

By Michael March 28, 2020 0

“Look,” the leader said to White House Correspondent Jon Karl, “don’t be a cutie-pie, okay?”

During the leader’s daily press briefing/campaign rally on March 27, 2020, Karl pressed the leader, “Look, can everyone who needs a ventilator get one?” Karl asked a fair question, given the nature of the administration’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. read more

A Short Note on the Pandemic #12

By Michael March 24, 2020 0

“The cost of the cure should not be more than the cost of the disease,” the confident leader of the western world said in his daily Coronavirus update on day 6 of the government’s recommendation to stay home for the next 14 days. In western medicine, the cost of the cure has always been higher than the price of the disease. Doctors view the objective is to keep the patient alive at all cost, especially when the patient has proper insurance. read more

A Short Note on the Pandemic #6

By Michael March 18, 2020 0

As the United States moves further into the Corvid-19 Pandemic, the President proposes to give some Americans a $1,000 check to ease the burden caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus. One can view this as hush money for his initial ineptitude in dealing with the pandemic before Americans began to get sick. His lackadaisical approach caused his American supporters not to take Corvid-19 seriously and thereby to avoid appropriate steps to ward off the infection. As the numbers grow in the coming days, some, if not all, of the new coronavirus cases, can be traced back to the President’s initial down-play of the severity of the disease. Come November 3, $1000 can cause a large number of Americans to forget what inaction took place in January. read more

A Short Note on the Pandemic #4

By Michael March 16, 2020 0

The Democratic Presidential Debate held on March 15, 2020, featuring former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont, inspired more hope that America can manage the Coronovirus crisis than any of the administration’s press briefing of last week.

The only problem, neither of these two gentlemen will be in a position to take any action to resolve the spread of the pandemic and the social, medical, and economic impact of the Corvid-19 until noon, January 20, 2021. read more

I Voted for Biden and Here Is Why I Did

By Michael March 5, 2020 0

The Georgia Presidential Preference Primary slated for March 24, 2020, in my home state. However, Georgia is among a few political subdivisions that have an early vote process where voters can cast their ballot before the scheduled Primary or General Election date.

I like early voting because the lines are usually shorter. I can get in and out in fifteen minutes or less. However, in the 2008 General Election, when Barack Obama was on the ballot for the first time, I stood in line about three and one-half hour to cast my historic vote. read more

Black People Vote Too

By Michael February 12, 2020 0

Black people vote too, yes they sure do vote.

Thank God Joe Biden. Blacks do vote in large numbers in the states where they reside. Mostly in the south, the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, well, you get the picture.

Even though Black people vote in prodigious numbers, the fake news media have written Joe Biden out of the race. These fakers want a fresh face to talk about in 2020. Biden does not fit the bill as he has been around much longer than this writer, who has been around far longer than he cares to admit on most days. read more

Biden Toppled As Front Runner and Blacks Haven’t Voted Yet

By Michael February 11, 2020 0

In a recent national poll, former Vice President Joe Biden drops from atop the polls as the likely Democratic nominee, a front-runner no more.

Biden’s moderate approach to defeating impeached President Donald J. Trump displaced for the democratic socialist ideas of Senator Bernie Sanders and former New York Republican Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg is waiting on the flank for Sanders and Bloomberg to falter. read more

Joe Biden Didn’t Suck As Bad As the Pundits Contend

By Michael February 8, 2020 0

I watched the debate from New Hampshire. Contrary to the television political pundits, I thought that Joe Biden had a great discussion about his views on the future of the country.

The future, after all, can not begin until Donald J. Trump is defeated. Biden made it clear that the goal of the 2020 campaign season is to defeat Trump. read more
