The United States is the world’s greatest country. We are strongest, richest and have incredible scientific and industrial might. Our leaders say we are strong and resourceful. And we do have more resources on hand than any other country.
But I just can’t stop wondering why and how our response to the Covid-19 virus is so messed up. The U.S. has only 4.2 percent of the world’s population. But we have fully one-third of all the Covid-19 cases in the world, and 25 percent of all the Covid-19 deaths. These simple statistics show in stark terms that our leaders have botched our response, and we are paying the price.
The states are struggling to respond to something that cries out for a consistent nationwide response. We just never get one. Our federal government is so inept, and so focused on blaming others, that its really quite sickening. Please support Gov. Jay Inslee and his attempts to keep Washington state on the right track.
