Due to WWI, they ignored the Spanish Flu and, hell, we exported the damned thing to the rest of the world. It wasn't until the end of WWI for the US that they could do anything about it. And then they started to isolate it first region then area and then by the person until they got a handle on it. And masks in an area that was being isolated was Mandatory punishable by either fines or arrest. One person was actually shot to death over refusing to wear a mask. Mask were provided by the Red Cross. They wrote the book on how to handle a modern day Pandemic and that book was passed down from President to President. The Spanish Flu wasn't imported to the US, it originated in the US and was allowed to manifest into a full blown pandemic. They invented social distancing and mandatory masks. Entire Companies were shut down until ALL workers could be cleared. As they cleared the workers, the company was allowed to put them back to work. The Spanish Flu wasn't the Flu at all. It was Influenza. And if you don't think that it can raise it's ugly head again, you would be right only because we have enough people that are vaccinated each year against it. Obama only needed to get the ball rolling. The mechanisms were already in place. Rump fired the people that were supposed to run it. The sad part is, Pence was part of the ending of the H1N1 as Governor at the time as were all other Governors. The ONLY reason it wasn't as bad was that it was handled using the methods and procedures passed down from Administration to Administration. And the fact that a vaccine was discovered. Covid has followed the Spanish Flue and H1N1 to the letter. MF Rump allowed the genie out of the bottle so that we went through much of what the original America went through with the Spanish Flu. But now that we have the Vaccine, we are going to go by way of the H1N1 which was never allowed to become a Pandemic. But it has cost more than 500,000 lives to get to this point. If the Spanish Flu had been handled as badly, the death rate would have been in the tens of millions.Bullshit. Nothing is as bad as this Chinese Virus. No plan or book can stop a real pandemic when it hits.We had much deadlier Pandemics come onto our shores and they were gotten under control. The procedures were written into a book in 1918 and passed on from President to President. Most of the time, we were never even aware the pandemic was there. It was quietly handled. H1N1 was more dangerous than Covid but it was handled quietly, isolated. The vaccine for it is now included in the mix for the yearly Flu Shot and has been since 2009. H1N1 goes by another name, a much older name, The Spanish Flu.What a fucking idiot you are.And most of that was passed on from Obama's time as well. What didn't get passed on was the Emergency Pandemic Procedures that has been passed on and used by every President in over 100 years to avoid the out of control Pandemics. Oh, it was passed on but the MF Rump claimed he never received the book until he did find it. And to this day, the MF Rump still hasn't read the damned thing. Obama did, Bush Jr did, Clinton did, Bush Sr did, Reagan did, and so on. We have had some real potential killer pandemics every so many years and each and every President except that MF Rump followed the plans passed on by past Presidents.LOL Guess you forgot. Before the very convenient Chines Virus this country was doing great. UE was the lowest it had been in 50 years. We had jobs all across this country and a great economy. All that with "Rump" at the helm. Hope you aren't looking for that with jack ass Biden cause we ain't gonna get it.America went into deep doo doo under Rump. We are doing what Americans always do and are in the process of digging our way out of the deep Kimshee.Wow your crystal ball is malfunctioning.America is doing better and better each day even without you Rumpster assistance. Or is that, in spite of your assistance. She's a tough old lady.How is America doing after the election?
1. Washington DC is covered in barb wire, a virtual military zone now.
2. Gas at the pumps keeps going up and up and up with no end in sight
3. America is no longer energy independent thanks to the Key Stone Pipe line being stopped
4. Bombs are falling on Syria.
5. Americans continue to wait for their stimulus checks promised if the two democrats were elected in Georgia, which they were.
6. Taxes will be going up along with gas prices
7. Inflation is on the verge of exploding, making what wealth that exists to be worth less.
8. Biden continues to look like he escaped a nursing home and confused on where he is.
9. The FBI has switched gears on chasing Russian spies to chasing right wing insurrectionists, presumably with the need of building more jails and hiring more police.
10. People are having trouble getting a Covid vaccine now. Not Joe Biden, no, he got his before becoming President. In fact, considering Joe Biden's age, Trump probably saved his life by providing the vaccine for him to take. Must be nice. Most Americans can't get one right now.
America is in deep doo doo and it will get deeper with Biden at the helm.
If you voted for that jack ass you get what you voted for. Those of us who didn't vote for jack ass will just to grin and bear it. This country is in trouble with Biden at the helm and if you can't see it then you are one fine sheep. Baa Baa Baa
What we are in the process of digging out of is what happens when a pandemic hits. That virus hit the economy of every country in the world.
We should NEVER have had to dig our way out. And had that MF Rump read the damned book he was passed, he would still be President.
Once that virus hit our shores nothing was going to stop it or control it. Doesn't matter how many books anyone read or plans they followed nothing was going to stop it. That virus affected every economy in the world. We are all digging our way out.
You want to blame someone. Blame China for not locking their country down and releasing this virus on the world.
The Spanish flue killed over 18 million people. Who did you blame for that.
Hel the bubonic plague damned near killed every human in the world. Who did you blame for that.
No plan or book can stop a pandemic once it hits our shores. H1N1 was nowhere near as bad as this Chinese virus and Barry didn't do much from what I've read.
