Not even close to his first hundred days and President Biden is performing big time and speaking truth to the American people.
Biden said he would see that 100 people would receive the vaccine in his first hundred days. He is scheduled to announce today that number has been reached. Forty seven days early.
At some point, Biden will have to deal right on with the filibuster. And he will. America cannot permit a Senate procedure which has past its time to stop him. Especially in days of many needs.
The Republicans will receive an epiphany. They will claim surprise. However, it is obvious they know it’s coming.
This week Biden called Putin a “killer.” Something Trump was reluctant to do. Whatever wrongdoing Putin was guilty of at a particular time, Trump would say I asked him and he said he didn’t do it.
Some day the world will learn why Trump bought Putin’s lies. It will have to involve women and money.
Florida’s Department of Health has removed from its daily COVID report the number of people who received their second shots.
Florida claims its actions lie withing CDC guidelines. Moderna requires the second shot on the 28th day following the first. Pfizer on the 21st day.
The CDC recently advised those days are not rigid. There is flexibility involved. Can be late. The CDC however did not spell out how late.
DeSantis’ people said if the second shot day is not fixed and rigid, we do not have to report it all. And thusly was the decision made by Florida.
DeSantis and many others in this country forget a most important thing Fauci said: We are in “a race between vaccine and the virus.” One would think every elected official would recognize and move their asses with regard to vaccine shots.
Republican Senator Rand Paul is an obstructionist, a know it all and a pain in the ass. He also is a doctor. An ophthalmologist.
He never agrees with Fauci. Fauci rarely agrees with him. They frequently have words during Committee hearings where Fauci is speaking. It was face to face bickering yesterday. The issue mask wearing.
Rand told Fauci masks were not needed. He believes people are not a at the risk of COVID after they have recovered or have been vaccinated. Rand said it was all “theater.”
Fauci strongly responded: “Masks are not theater. I totally disagree with you.”
Fauci explained science believes the vaccine is good for 6 months. Not sure after that. One reason to keep wearing a mask. The other are the variants that are popping up. No one is sure how the virus will react to a variant. Another reason to continue wearing a mask.
Rand continued to disagree again claiming there was “virtually zero percent chance of anyone getting COVID-19 if recovered or received the vaccine.”
Pope Francis. One terrific person! Much like Biden. Francis has half the Church hierarchy against him.
It was on this day in 2013 that Francis officially began his ministry as the Catholic Church’s 266th Pope.
May God continue to help him in holding off the hordes of troublemakers he has to deal with on a daily basis.
An interesting piece of information. The Brooking Institute claims there were 300,000 fewer births in the U.S. in 2021. The reason coronavirus. It was noted that in Planned Parenthood’s recent fiscal year, it performed 354,871 abortions.
The Monroe County Commission is to be complimented. Actually, cheered! They voted to stand with Key West in its cruise ship problem.
The bubbas and business people claim the people want bigger ships and more ships visiting Key West. Of course, their pocketbooks are invcolved.
They have exerted their “influence” in getting the State legislature to introduce and presently have moving through committees a bill that would permit the State to preempt the recent vote by Key Westers to limit size and number of ships.
In the election, Key Westers voted in 3 referendums by more than 60 percent each for the limitations.
The State is wrong re the preemption issue. The bubbas and business people likewise. Though i can understand their position. Their pocketbooks are at stake.
An interesting article in the Key West Citizen this morning. The question was raised asking how the restaurant business has been doing since COVID-19 hit. The surprising answer, 8 new restaurants opened.
Would you believe!
Good for the new owners. They may have properly seen the future and took the gamble.
I wish each good luck. Once my quarantine is behind me, I have 8 new restaurants to try,
The Key West Art and Historical Society is to be complimented. Its curator Cori Convertino is to receive special recognition.
A new exhibit opens today. The History of Duval Street. It will run through August.
Exciting! Can’t wait to view the exhibit. After my self-quarantine ends, of course.
On this day in 1949, Harry Truman left Key West after a 2 week vacation at The Little White House.
The 11 trips and 175 days he spent in Key West speaks well for the community. Truman had to like more than the accommodations beach. He had to be enamored with the people. Their uniqueness.
March Madness is here!
Syracuse opens tonight against San Diego State. San Diego had a great season and is favored. It is the #6 seed in the Midwest Region. Syracuse the #11 seed.
The game will be carried on CBS at 9:40 this evening. Hope I can stay awake to watch the whole game. Hope Syracuse wins!
Enjoy your day!
