from The Washington Post…

Distinguished person of the week: He put human life first

Who stood out last week?

WITH A president willfully indifferent to the needs of states around the country, his callow son-in-law lecturing us that the national stockpile of equipment is not meant for the states, a right-wing website calling for us to sacrifice New York City so the rest of the country can get back to work, and a batch of Trumpian governors reluctant to issuing stay-at-home orders, we needed a reminder last week of a fundamental religious and ethical value: Every human life is precious.

Navy Captain Brett Crozier of the USS Theodore Roosevelt took that seriously, as well as his obligation to protect the sailors under his command. The Washington Post reported on Crozier's efforts to protect his crew, many of whom had been stricken with covid-19:


Quote
In a letter to senior officials on Monday, subsequently leaked by an anonymous source to the San Francisco Chronicle, Crozier asked that 90 percent of the ship's crew be moved into isolation for two weeks on Guam, warning that if the leadership didn't take such extraordinary measures, “we are failing to properly take care of our most trusted asset — our Sailors.”

The Pentagon has rejected the type of full-scale evacuation Crozier sought, saying the ship must remain ready at any time and about 1,000 service members must be aboard to safeguard the ship and its weapons. The situation aboard the Roosevelt is by far the U.S. military's largest coronavirus outbreak to date….

As of Friday, 41 percent of the Roosevelt crew had been tested for covid-19, with 137 coming back positive, the Navy said.

The Navy relieved him of command, apparently taking umbrage that his complaint went public. Soon, video surfaced showing the crew applauding their commander as he left the ship.

Seventeen Democratic senators sent a letter seeking an inspector general's investigation. (Did Republicans — once thought to be pro-military — not care to find out what happened?)

The episode underscored the twisted priorities in the Trump administration that have corrupted even the military. Celebrate war criminals; punish commanders who fight bureaucracy for their men and women. Reward liars; sanction truth-tellers.

Former vice president Joe Biden tweeted his reaction: “Captain Crozier was faithful to his duty — both to his sailors and his country. Navy leadership sent a chilling message about speaking truth to power. The poor judgment here belongs to the Trump Admin, not a courageous officer trying to protect his sailors.” If Biden wins in November, he might consider a promotion for the captain.

In November, the voters can choose which value system they want for the country. The can indulge Trump's narcissistic, dishonest character or they can elevate decency, kindness, honor, respect, competence and empathy.

For demonstrating courage and elevating the safety of his sailors, we can say, well done, Captain Crozier.

If Trump's stupid reporters believe Trump's bullshit about the virus (have you watched that video yet?) then they only have themselves to blame if the virus kills them.

One could almost call it “nature removing idiots from the gene pool”, eh?

Population 9,477,918 (July 2020 est

This guy has some balls Damn it they closed our local hard liquor store lol

Belarus President Refuses to Impose Lockdown in the Country, Says Vodka & Sauna Will Cure Us of Coronavirus



While many world leaders have imposed a lockdown in their countries due to the growing threat of coronavirus, some others have simply refused to consider the seriousness of the situation. One of them is the president of Belarus, Alexander Luka­shenko, who has said ‘no’ to a lockdown in his country, so all the shops, theatres and markets are open and meanwhile, brimming with people.

He also has an expert advice for a cure of coroanvirus: daily shots of vodka and banya, a Russian-style sauna!

”I don’t drink but recently I’ve been saying that people should not only wash their hands with vodka but also poison the virus with it. You should drink the equivalent of 40-50 millilitres of rectified spirit daily. But not at work,” he said.

Lukashenko (President of Belarus) knows how to defeat the virus.

”Go to the banya. Two or three times a week will do you good. When you come out of the sauna, not only wash your hands, but also your insides with 100ml (of vodka),” Lukashenko added.

On Saturday, without a care in the world, fans thronged the football stadiums around the country while Lukashenko himself took part in an ice hockey tournament, while people in other parts of the world are staying out at their homes.

Watch the President of Belarus explain why the #Covid_19 Coronavirus isn't a threat and why he's still letting crowds go to sporting events

Further, he mocked and described the stringent measures taken by other countries as “utter stupidity” and told the citizens of his country that the pandemic is nothing more than a “psychosis.”

“The world has gone mad from the coronavirus. This psychosis has crippled national economies almost everywhere in the world,” he remarked at a time when thousands of people have succumbed to the fatal virus.

Currently, Belarus has confirmed 94 cases of the virus with no deaths.
