    What's actually funny is that you failed to provide (maybe you don't know it, or maybe you're simply trolling) the definition of "response."

    Maybe, for your next post, you could respond by achieving or doing something to provide that definition, along with the reasons why a response cannot also be a plan.

    Are you aware that Congress is part of the federal government?

    I apologize if you aren't advocating any govt.- mandated citizen behavior in "response" to the Covid pandemic.

    Of course, if you are advocating that the federal government require mandatory behavior on the part of citizens as part of a "planned"... "response" to Covid, then I of course have nothing to apologize for.

    Still dodging because the leadership comes directly from our President.

    “The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services is chosen by the President of the United States and sits in his Cabinet. The head of the Public Health Service, the Assistant Secretary for Health, is also appointed by the President. The Surgeon General, who is also appointed by the President, acts as an adviser to the Secretary and the Assistant Secretary.”

    The President is in charge of the executive branch of the federal government and is also the chief administrator.

    I am not sure I moved the goal post, but it's possible.

    Let's look at your post that I responded to with the abortion analogy:

    (Apparently, you meant that a President can't ignore that many American deaths without there being adverse political consequences, but it's possible you meant that it's immoral for a President to ignore that many deaths. Feel free to elaborate on what you meant if it's important)

    So the issue was American deaths, and whether you can ignore them or not.

    I provided an example of American deaths that Presidents have ignored, and I'm not sure that it caused serious political repercussions for those Presidents.

    Deaths are deaths, and the people who died may not care whether they died from a contagious disease that wasn't combatted as hard as you wanted, or whether they died from someone's deliberate violent acts.

    CDC report stated only 6% of deaths were attributed directly to COVID with an average of 2.6 other complications that could have been the cause on the other 94%. However death certificates have been labeled at COVID as the cause.

    I’ve personally witnessed 2 deaths labeled as COVID but they weren’t even tested for covid (heart disease in both instances) and they refuse to change the cause of death on the certificate.

    Three members of my team tested positive for covid had subsequently retested negative 2 days later showing tests are very flawed.

    How do you try to come with a plan when the numbers are being so inflated? Lock everyone down crush the economy for what? To push a fear narrative that we can never live the same lives we had before and sacrifice everything “for the children”.

    No thanks.

    Context matters, and you narrowly focused on a single sentence. In your previous reply, you wanted to add “mandate” to one of post (and that was not the truth). Yes, you are attempting to move the goal post.

    Yep. Our Governor announces a new record of cases and deaths every day and the Democrats have a complete breakdown if anybody casts doubt on his BS.

    Absolutely. Back a couple months ago, the Wisconsin DNR mandated their people wearing masks even during a video call- when they are ALL ALONE.... that point then, exactly, is when I lost ANY respect (albeit very little) I ever had for "our" governor.... he is firmly on my IGNORE list now.
    And yes, the local news keeps hammering the numbers- over and over. Gets very tiring- I simply do not care anymore.
    BTW- how is that Recall Evers thing going? ..... it was a big deal at work- LOTS of signatures.

    As of last week I heard they said they had enough signatures to recall but we're working on paddign the numbers as much as possible, against rejects or whatnot. At least that's what the guy on The Average Joe show said... Wednesday? Thursday? One of those.

    No, the useful idiots that listen to the media on what to do about COVID are the ones being played.
