Biden has ordered federal flags to be flown at half mast to commemorate the upcoming millionth Covid death in the U.S. Never mind that most of these deaths weren't caused by Covid: Hospitals gave Covid tests to everyone who was admitted and blamed any subsequent deaths on Covid for merely testing positive to exposure.

But never let a public health threat go to waste, right? Does anyone still believe in these political gimmicks?

Didn't Trump order flags at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh's death?

Trump never cared about the deaths

Only about their effect on his re-election chances

So you voted for the guy who promised to halt the pandemic, only to have him later tell you, "You're on your own. Eat shit. LOL"

No one was left on their own. Biden achieved over 66% of people getting vaccinated, which helps in keeping people off hospitals and dying.


The unvaccinated do not care. They are the ones getting the consequences in not believing in vaccines and ending up hospitalized or dead, now.

A million deaths came to be because people are rejecting the facts about the virus and the vaccines.

I voted for the man who would do what was best for the American people rather than what was in his own best interest

Biden cares about people

A million people died from something to those who say they didn't die of covid. Just saying.


Granted, about two deaths occur each second every day worldwide, which comes to about 150,000 deaths per day.


So 1,00,000 dying in the U.S. of covid, is equivalent to a week normal week of natural causes deaths worldwide, and 17 weeks of natural causes death in the U.S. (About 7,800 die of natural causes daily in the U.S.)


A sad day for sure, but worthy of flag half staffing, I'm not sure.

That's sweet. Memorializing the dead that the gov't killed in the first place. Like having a memorial for the Randy Weaver's family or JFK.

Federal flags were from when the number of deaths reached 500,000. It is done often by any President, Governor, etc


-----
A recent occasion when the flag was flown at half-mast on a national level was on February 21st, 2021, to honor the more than 500,000 American lives lost due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This is more American lives lost in a single year than in World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War combined. The solemn occasion was meant to reflect on the nation’s loss and the loved ones left behind. As a nation, we remember in order to begin to heal and to unite in these trying times.


Interested in the other occasions in which it is appropriate to fly the flag at half-mast? Read on to find out.


Occasions to fly the flag at half-mast:


  • Memorial Day
  • September 11th
  • National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
  • In the event of the U.S President’s death
  • In the event of the U.S Vice President’s death
  • In the event of a U.S Congress-Person’s death
  • In times of national mourning

The information went over your head. Ok.
So, what country do you live in where that information is different than what I posted about the USA?
