And I am not counting premature infants I am talking about a nine month baby at two months. If every other circumstance was the same but Barack Obama was president, Trump supporters would never get done saying that the president missed everything and is responsible for the for the deaths.

AstraZeneca pulled back as you know. Some Company will make sure they get one out before the election. But it will make about as much sense is having a baby in two months. Has never been done before and it will not be this time either.

AstraZeneca is still producing the vaccine in anticipation of approval, but is studying one case of a possible side effect in one person in the UK trails with an autoimmune disease. Closely monitoring the trials is what they should be doing. If the lefties line up behind Biden and Harris and refuse the "Orange Man Bad" vaccine, there will be plenty for everyone else.

Biden and Harris are speaking out not to trust the vaccine being developed under Operation Warp Speed.

So, if Biden and Harris win, they'll throw out all of the vaccine under development now and start all over on inauguration day?

This'll be fun to watch.

Cases up. Hospitalizations Down. Deaths Down. Vaccines in production awaiting FDA approval. Plenty of PPE, hand sanitizer, and toilet paper. [thumbup][ninja]

This is going to be a sad, sad fall and winter for many of us. Cases going up again and, with the flu on the horizon, this could easily be worse than 1918.

To bad we do not have a mask mandate nationwide. We have seatbelt laws, although knuckleheads argued against them as an attack on personal liberties...and these laws protect the individual as well as others around them.

Now masks are an attack on personal liberties, instead of a commonsensical public health initiative that EVERYONE should be embracing.

You do not wear a mask, anywhere in the US, you are a FOOL and threat to decency and common respect of your fellow Americans.

Period.

It may sound harsh, but at this point if someone gets sick from the virus, I dont have much sympathy for them. The guidelines have been out there.
