Let’s Summer in Europe!

Nope! Sorry…we can’t.

The European Union is excluding us from their list of 15 safe countries whose citizens will be allowed to travel there.

I guess we’ve just become too darned great and full of ourselves for being like, well… better than everybody else. Just look at that graph up there. We’re off the charts! When it comes to Coronavirus cases that is… as in… we’re doing so well we’re contagious!

New confirmed daily cases in the EU peaked around mid-March and are now on a clear downward trend, with cases below 10,000 for more than a month. In the US however, new cases are on a steep upward trajectory and have now topped over 40,000 per day!
That’s good isn’t it? Aren’t we winning? Data for the US shows that new cases in at least 36 states are trending upwards compared to the previous week. State and local leaders have said the rise in cases is in part driven by gatherings at homes and in meeting places such as bars.
Of course we Americans are gathering! We’re celebrating because we are free and great! And it’s about time…Now where’s my drink? I’m feeling a bit thirsty and warm.
Did you know that The U.S. has recorded  more Covid-19  cases and deaths than anywhere in the world? (What’s a Covid anyway? And what in the world is the 19 for?!) At almost 2.6 million cases and more than 126,000 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University, that puts us in the big leagues with teams like Brazil, Russia and India!: The three nations with the highest numbers of cases after…US!
Whoo-Hoo! How great can we get? We’re in the top division!
Apparently The EU’s decision is based on whether a country has a similar or better epidemiological situation than Europe, as well as comparable hygiene and containment measures…sounds like a lot of crap doesn’t it? I bet they’re just jealous.
But!…The EU has recommended that member states offer entry to China, where the virus originated for crise sakes!…on the condition of reciprocal arrangements. What the ???  That sounds like a bribe or payoff doesn’t it?… Figures!
The other 14 countries that are allowed to visit Europe this summer are: Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay. What a bunch of lightweights. Do any of them even play football? You know, the real kind!
Oh well. We’ll just have to stay home this summer wrapped in our warm, humble hubris and gloat. It’s good to be great and free and unencumbered by the suffering of others who are poor, and old and or without the proper health coverage that they should have bought for themselves from… wherever…just don’t get me started.
It’s good to be great…again! Now let’s party!
All hail our fearless, wondrous and most beloved leader!
And take that mask off when you do…you wimp!

    I find it strange that our leader continues to absolve himself of any responsibility, Yet, as I see it, he clearly owns a significant portion of this …our disaster. But what worries me more, this week, is the inability for his team to get in touch with him for THREE hours to advise him of the racist tweet he posted (re: The Villages!) He then of course took it down. But Three Hours?? To reach him?? The guy with the nuclear briefcase??? What was he doing. Where was he? Oh .. oh yeah, …playing golf! ( For accuracy sake, I can’t absolutely confirm this was true, but just being of mind to CONSIDER it as true, boggles the mind! M 😦

    To answer your question about the name of the virus, it comes from COronaVIrusDecember2019. December 2019 was when it was first identified.

      Thanks but those were the President’s words (questions) in front of his Tulsa crowd of equally ignorant human beings…but it is hard to believe that no one in his administration hadn’t already explained the meaning to him. It boggles the mind to realize that 40% of Americans feign ignorance in order to collectively hate something or someone in the name of what? Worship? They must actually worship DJT!

        Oh, I see! Sorry, gpicone. I missed the sarcasm, and I should have known you were too smart not to know that. I’m not surprised the Pres feigned ignorance on this in order to appeal to his base.
