Instead Of A Shark, It’s An Epidemic. And Instead Of Summer, It’s All The Time

Yesterday.

“Collectively, we are making significant new commitments to help keep up the fight against COVID-19 in 2022, protect the most vulnerable populations, and prepare for the next health crisis, because there will be others.

“You know, and the United States is going to continue to do our part.

“Today I’m announcing the United States will share critical COVID-19 technologies through the World Health Organization COVID-19 Technology Access Pool. We’re making available health technologies that are owned by the United States government, including stabilized spike protein that is used in many COVID-19 vaccines.

“We’re standing up a new pilot program, working with the Global Fund, to expand access to rapid testing and antiviral treatments for people in harder-to-reach areas.

“And we’re increasing our support for a new Pandemic Preparedness and Global Health Security fund that will be established at the World Bank this summer with $450 million in seed funding.

“I particularly want to commend Indonesia and Italy for their leadership in helping make this fund a reality. And I’m encouraging other leaders to join me in — in upping their commitments.

“You know, we’re going to face, together, global health crises. This is not the last one we’ve had. It’s not a question of “if,” it’s a question of “when.”

    Considering mandates meant people loosing jobs/homes/family if they didn’t take the experimental poison – what will “doubling down” mean?

    I mean they already blatantly ignored the Nuremberg Code, what next? Forced at gunpoint?

      The next pandemic?

      Unless the next pandemic causes people to bleed out of their eyeballs, I think most folks will leave getting a vaccine.

        And you can guarantee if they start charging people for the vaccine fewer takers
        Meanwhile government is gouging the general public with VAT on all PPE used
        Remember when we had to buy everything from face masks to sanitiser ALL SUBJECT TO VAT
        Billions in extra tax on goods needed to keep you alive and keep your family safe
        Even on all those antigen tests to be responsible
        Even our electricity credit was subject to vat of 13.5% then the VAT was levied on use at 13.5% on consumption of that €200 credit double VATing the €200 grant at 27%

    If Fascism Ever Comes to America, It Will Come in the Name of Liberalism- Ronald Reagan.

    Now look at who championed the leper passes and the clot shot mandates, and who is cheerleading the Ukrainian Nazis?

        How do you mix up a gay man who’s comments are consistent and Cavan who’s comments are so consistent in a totally different way ?

      Well look who championed conspiracy theories about covid and vaccines, who passed laws against pandemic measures, who is banning abortion and wants to ban contraception, who wants to repeal civii rights protections and make voting harder for poor people and minorities, who supports the invasion of a democratic state by a tyrant. If fascism ever comes to America it’ll have to get in line behind the Republicans.

    I’m sure the American tax payer is delighted to read that their gov. will be printing more money based on massive debt but of course it’s not the Covid shutdown or the multi trillions in unpayable debt, it’s Ukraine stoopid.
