Yeah right, so we get it, we're being trained not to work, embrace victim roles and stuff, pampered, lazy, in training for the lowest common denominator as they throw us a bone for good behavior.

Biden conquered COVID already, can we all agree on that :abgg2q.jpg:

Behind door number three is you're working too hard and you're dying

I used to work sixteen to twenty hours a day and it didn't kill me, just crippled me.

Construction?
Construction, management, theater production and performance, broadcasting and child raising, not to mention wife maintenance, gardening, colleges, military.. You know, the usual.

You must be very mentally tough.
Did you ever get a single day to yourself ??
Sure, there would be times I would run off and isolate myself like I do now on my 43 acres and my hidden house. A friend of mine though liked the spotlight and went on to become a congressman but, I couldn't stand to be around crowds anymore..His name is Steve Womack, his dad owned a radio station we both worked at in the mid 1980's.

Biden didn’t conquer COVID-19. If Trump hadn‘t launched his Warp Speed program we likely would still be waiting for a vaccine.

Getting the facts right on Operation Warp Speed​

THE VIEWS EXPRESSED BY CONTRIBUTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND NOT THE VIEW OF THE HILL

***snip***

It should be emphasized that OWS was launched to almost universal skepticism and even scorn. At the time of OWS’s launch in Spring 2020, a strong consensus prevailed among media, public-health experts, consultants, and betting markets that regulatory approval by the end of 2020 and the accelerated delivery of 300 million doses were unrealistic goals. Consider some typical examples:

The June 6, 2020 issue of the medical journal Lancet opined that “on average, it takes 10 years to develop a vaccine. With the COVID-19 crisis looming, everyone is hoping that this time will be different. Although many infectious disease experts argue … even 18 months for a first vaccine is an incredibly aggressive schedule.”

The federal government’s top COVID advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, joined the skeptics: In February 2020 and again in April 2020 he predicted that a year to a year and a half would be required for vaccine approval — versus the half year that was actually required.

We Had the Vaccine the Whole Time​

You may be surprised to learn that of the trio of long-awaited coronavirus vaccines, the most promising, Moderna’s mRNA-1273, which reported a 94.5 percent efficacy rate on November 16, had been designed by January 13. This was just two days after the genetic sequence had been made public in an act of scientific and humanitarian generosity that resulted in China’s Yong-Zhen Zhang’s being temporarily forced out of his lab. In Massachusetts, the Moderna vaccine design took all of one weekend. It was completed before China had even acknowledged that the disease could be transmitted from human to human, more than a week before the first confirmed coronavirus case in the United States. By the time the first American death was announced a month later, the vaccine had already been manufactured and shipped to the National Institutes of Health for the beginning of its Phase I clinical trial. This is — as the country and the world are rightly celebrating — the fastest timeline of development in the history of vaccines. It also means that for the entire span of the pandemic in this country, which has already killed more than 250,000 Americans, we had the tools we needed to prevent it .

There were probably dozens that were designed and prepared; how many were proved effective and safe? Four so far.

Four so far because they had experience making the vaccines due to money invested in research. From what I understand there are seven variations of coronaviruses in the world that we know of, SARS and Covid-19 being two of them.

Yeah, you've been playing the victim card for about 20 years now.

That's quite a list and impressive, and the middle helps explain why you're PROG:p My mother liked performance in her youth, let me tell you, Hollywood missed out :abgg2q.jpg: Her paternal family is in the mix, mostly Democrat, but a few are sane. My father was a performer, if you were 40 years younger you might have broadcasted him;)

Skips a generation :p

WTF? My favorite job was 13 hours a day seven days a week. I'm nobody's victim, be sure of that. I just have to sit back and watch the stench. Irony is CNN is on all TVs at the local gym, so it's literal, but personally, I don't know what channel they're on.

At this stage we have to just call ye gullible idiots...

Operation Warp Speed was a universal joke... The development of the Vaccine was in full swing by a number countries around the world.. The grants and funding for Pfizer came from Germany, Astra Zenica was UK, ....

Moderna came from the US (Liberal Massachusetts company set up by a Canadian) but was based on grants and funding which was given from the Obama administration, funding which was cut by Trump...

Giving Trump any credit for the Vaccine is pretty pathetic... He cut scientific money into vaccines and pandemic response which made US incapable of defending itself...

He ordered Vaccine, that is all he did... Hard to give him much credit for that...

Biden saw US go from being pitied around the world to one of admiration and even envy...

It doesn‘t surprise me in the least that some will give Trump zero credit for Operation Warp Speed.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is real and it’s ugly. There are plenty of people in this nation who will tell you that Trump could never make America Great Again as America has never been great to begin with. Many of these fools hope to transform America into a socialist workers paradise.

Of course he didn't because he has done it all and still does everything. Come on, he told you tough and awesome he is what more do you want.

I mean we all know everything everyone says on the internet is always 100% fact. Right? I mean who would embellish the truth or lie online for something as petty as cheap self satisfaction.

Trump was truly awful handling the COVID Pandemic... Remeber he was the one who cut the pandemic response teams...

Said he could hire them all back when needed...

He knowingly lied to the US people on how severe it was going to be...

He took no responsibility for the pandemic response...

The only derangement going on is from the Trumpsters trying desperately to rewrite history...

Partly false claim: Trump fired entire pandemic response team in 2018​

***snip***

CONCLUSIONS​

There is disagreement over how to describe the changes at the NSC’s Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense in 2018. The departure of some members due to “streamlining” efforts under John Bolton is documented. The “pandemic response team” as a unit was largely disbanded.

VERDICT​

Partly false: The Trump administration disbanded the “pandemic response” team, but some of the team members were reassigned to roles that included pandemic response
