Things that the Biden administration called 'temporary blips'; a story in pictures.

Pic 1: Biden's job approval. That's no blip!
Pic 2: COVID Cases. That's no blip!
Pic 3: Inflation. That's no blip!
Ships waiting at the port of LA; That's no blip!

So, I was ranting about @UPS and their CEO @CarolBTome yesterday, and some people wanted specifics. Well, here you go.

In October, I purchased two online products. I purchased them from TWO different sellers (Ebay and Etsy, fwiw). They were purchased on different days.
On Oct 26th, both packages were "delivered" to my address by UPS. The problem...they weren't delivered.

Furthermore, I can PROVE they were never delivered. I work at home, and was here at the time; additionally, my Ring video never showed anyone approaching the house.
Even funnier? One was "Delivered" several hours before the other...NEITHER was ever delivered, and no delivery man entered my property on that day.

So I filed a complaint. Etsy and Ebay ignored it, because UPS stated they delivered the package, and they aren't responsible.

This is something I've been alleging for almost two years; Michigan Office of the Auditor General is now accusing the state of Michigan of undercounting hundreds or thousands of deaths in long term care facilities.… via @freep
"While the auditor general's office declined to comment, Hertel's letter indicates the state anticipates it will say the department undercounted the number of long-term care residents who died because of COVID-19 by nearly 30%."

Lets note the auditor general is NONPARTISAN.
The complaints that the State of Michigan are making is almost EXACTLY the same excuses Andrew Cuomo used.

It is this simple: from the beginning, Michigan and Whitmer have been trying to hide these findings; Whitmer has blocked FOIA requests numerous times.

Let me tell you a little story: Here in Ohio, access to mAB has been narrowing. Most of the big hospital providers stopped using it, because the argument was it doesn't work with Omicron (even though lot of Delta cases remained).

So...the obvious problem...
My wife had a patient whose mother was unvaccinated (😡) with lot of comorbidities, got sick. What was she to do? Her oxygen was dropping, etc.

My wife had to fight to get her into one of the mAB clinics that was still providing access. She did, the patient recovered quickly.
Hospital systems are over burdened, hyper-regulatory monsters some times. They do a lot of good, but one thing they do NOT do well is adapt to fast changing situations.

Florida is doing the right thing...get access out the fastest way possible.

Biden is not serious about fixing climate change, and this is more evidence of that.

Any time they talk about climate change, and don't show how they are trying to expand nuclear power, we should reject their assertions forthwith.

I'm sick and tired of the doubletalk.
We could quite easily end carbon pollution by the US in a decade or two.

Democrats are CHOOSING TO POLLUTE INSTEAD. They would rather have the issue than the solution.

Well, if you are part of the obstruction to a cleaner tomorrow, you are part of the problem.
I refuse to take a back seat to lying, mendacious progressives who clearly don't want to solve the problem.

I wish conservatives would take up the cause, but that's hoping for too much.

These are among the highest vaccinated states in America.

Transmission is not being slowed ANYWHERE.

Hospitalizations and deaths are muted because of vaccines though. That is a great thing. But even hospitalizations are high, just because of the huge number of people.
And there is almost no evidence that places with vax or mask mandates are controlling transmission matter what SCOTUS says.
Simply put:

2. We have utterly failed in controlling transmission.
3. This wave is different than the others.

Nothing in our lifetimes....NOTHING...will cause as much racial disparity in education as our reaction to the COVID Pandemic.

Even the funding disparities we've had will pale in comparison to the damage we are now doing.…
This disparity is GROWING as more inner city (read: MINORITY) districts go virtual in this phase of the pandemic than suburban districts.

This is not because of money, or greed, or whatever...this is because of POOR CHOICES.
It will, on average, take FIVE SCHOOL YEARS for minority students to make up this deficit, and that is assuming they have the educational opportunities to even attempt to catch up...which is unlikely.
