Re: “Smaller Crowd at Shelter-in-Place Protest After Last Week's Sign Went Viral

Opening businesses, schools, etc is premature until everyone has equal access to a universal public healthcare system.

Just ask the Swedes.

Re: “Wear the Damn Mask

Unfortunately, there's an "internet expert" offering conflicting information with authoritative confidence for every conceivable belief.

Actual professionals in virology and epidemiology (and your family doctor) are distinguished by their avoidance of speaking in "absolutes" like we see above.

Their consensus in clear:

"Not enough is known about this novel virus".
"Not enough testing is being performed".

We also know that Taiwan, Vietnam, South Korea, and Singapore initiated national campaigns to wear masks, focusing on impoverished epicenters while banning exports of medical supplies and equipment all LAST JANUARY! As a result, most of their schools and businesses remained open and they have few cases and deaths.

The anti-science, climate change denying, flag-waving, belly-dragging mouth-breathers want it both ways: no masks and no closure and their representatives have heard their cries, preparing to crowd them into Eureka's fair-grounds by the hundreds, side-by-side on tiny cots like Mother Theresa's AIDS "death-clinics", freely exchanging each individual's viral strain to enhance rapid mutation.

Re: “A Toe in the Water

Local and national officials should be taking every media-opportunity to acknowledge the utter failure of privatized healthcare to adequately respond to ANY disaster!!

Right-wing Orange County, near Riverside, has the highest death rate in the state for its premature opening.

Herd immunity is great for Sweden and its state-of-the-art health care system that's provided universally for all residents.

Re: “'Very Soon'

Soon we're half a year into an epidemic not seen since 1918, except, this time the U.S. holds the record number of cases and deaths worldwide!

Yet, literally no official appearing in local media, TV, radio or print, has the courage to point out the obvious failure of a privatized healthcare system, alone in the industrialized world. There couldn't be a more important time.

Of course it's going to get worse.

Remember their names. History certainly will.

Re: “What to Expect with COVID-19 Testing (with Video)

Here's what I experienced:

I was referred to a doctor by the Open Door Clinic and that doctor issued a written order for a Covid-19 test.

I took the order to the Open Door's "tent" on Buhne Street in Eureka where no one was being tested and I was turned away and told to go to the "tent" at St. Joseph Hospital.

St. Joe's "tent" was not in service and they sent me to Redwood Acres where, again, no one was being tested and I was told to call a phone # to make an appointment and I was turned away.

The phone # was for the "OPTUM SERVE" Co. that had 30-minutes of personal questions, including health insurance information and asked to "call me back later"! hours later I received an appointment weeks from now causing my doctor to delay an in-hospital procedure.

Little wonder suicide rates are up, including for healthcare workers, we're 5 months into the crisis and this is still utter chaos.

Maybe it would relieve the growing tension if professionals, when publicly commenting on the epidemic, would acknowledge that a privatized healthcare system is completely incapable of adequate responses to any disaster.

Nothing could be more obvious this late in the pandemic.

Re: “Cliff, the N-word and Missed Opportunities

Cliff requested "off the record". Quite a bit different, however, grading only divides people.
