I dreamed last night of a labor lawyer I knew pretty well when I practiced law in Birmingham, Alabama. I thought about him for a while, and of tens of millions of hard-working Americans not getting to stay home. I checked my Facebook account and saw this new arrival:
Yesterday, a retired nurse, who lived in pricey Key West, then moved to the lower Florida east coast where she barely could afford to live, posted on Facebook:
Projected hospital resource use based on COVID-19 deaths (pull down menu allows you to see projected peak hospital resource use for your state).***The projections assume the continuation of strong social distancing measures and other protective measures***
Healthcare workers who are putting their lives on the line for us & our loved ones need the rest of us who can stay home to STAY HOME.
"On Tuesday you told Fox News you would “ love to have the country opened up and raring to go by Easter.” You said you chose Easter because, “you will have packed churches all over our country, I think it would be a beautiful time and it is just about the timeline that I think is right.” The thought of this makes me nauseous. If we do that, exponentially more people will get this disease, our hospital system will not have the capacity to handle it, and health care professionals like me will have to let countless people die while continuing to put our own lives ― and possibly the lives of the people we love ― at risk."
So many doctors are writing articles like this, but it apparently does not phase Donald Trump at all, as he continues to make his plans to fill the churches on Easter! And of course, Mar-a-Lago, and all his other clubs, golf courses and hotels, which is what this is all about, anyway. Trump supporters, don't you understand that now? Don't you see how selfish and dangerous he is?
