The United States and New Zealand are the only countries in the world where direct--consumer (DTC) advertising of prescription drugs is legal. DTC drug advertising is where pharmaceutical companies present drug information the general public through the media.

I find it odd that the Trump and Trump Jr. are selling drugs ...

History tells the story ...

-While Barack Obama was President the Republican Majority House voted 60 times to repeal and replace Obamacare ... knowing full well it wouldn't pass the Senate or the President's desk.
-In 2016 Donald J Trump ran his Presidential campaign on a better version of Republican SOCIALIZED HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYBODY.
-Then in In 2017 Trump along with Republican controlled House and Senate refused to pass a healthcare bill.
-In 2020 Donald Trump petitioned the Supreme Court to dismantle existing Obamacare for twenty million Americans.

Republican Scottsdale City Counselman Guy Philips blurts out "I can't breathe" as he rips off his face mask at a protest against the city's recent mandatory mask order. Later he said he lost control of himself due to adrenalin.

What can you do with that except laugh … and ask yourself if you're tired of being last.

How planning and early action helped San Francisco’s Chinatown control coronavirus

California is enduring an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths. But one community has succeeded at keeping the virus at bay -- offering potential lessons on how early action on the pandemic can change outcomes. Meiying Wu and Alyson Stamos, reporters at the Graduate School of Journalism at University of California, Berkeley, share this story from San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Amna Nawaz:
We are staying in California now, where, as we just heard, new outbreaks are leading to a steady increase of infections and deaths.
But one community you're about to see is so far succeeding in keeping the virus at bay, offering potential lessons on what happens when you start taking action early.
This story comes to us from Meiying Wu and Alyson Stamos, reporters at the University of California Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism.
Here's their report.
Alyson Stamos:
The Chinese New Year's celebration this past February in San Francisco was a time of excitement, but also a time of fear.
The coronavirus was spreading rapidly across China. And the first case had just been detected in the United States, causing alarm.
Jian Zhang:
We can have an outbreak in Chinatown because we have a lot of people going back to China for Chinese new year.
Alyson Stamos:
Jian Zhang is the CEO of Chinese Hospital, an acute care facility in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown. The neighborhood was poised for disaster, 15,000 people living in approximately 22 blocks, making it one of the densest neighborhoods west of Manhattan.
To make matters worse, most of its residents are elderly, living in cramped single-room occupancy hotels, called SROs.
Yongfaz Zhu (through translator):
Our room is very small in the SRO. It's about 70 square feet.
Alyson Stamos:
Yongfa Zhu is 81 and has lived in this SRO for more than a year.
Yongfaz Zhu:
We have little space in here besides the bed. We don't have our own kitchen. We don't have our own restroom.
Alyson Stamos:
The virus can spread easily here. Shared spaces like these have led some of the deadliest outbreaks in the country. At Chinese Hospital, they planned for the worst.
Jessica Li:
I was expecting that we would be inundated with cases, that we would be intubating left and right, that we would have very sick patients filling our E.R., basically, be overrun.
Luckily, that hasn't been the case.
Alyson Stamos:
Since January, only TWO Chinatown residents have been hospitalized here. And there have been fewer than 20 cases of COVID-19 in the neighborhood, accounting for one of the lowest rates in the entire city.
Zhang says it was all about preparation.
Jian Zhang:
Because the outbreak happened in China first, so they learned a lot of lessons. We don't have to go through that in order to learn what to do.
Alyson Stamos:
In January, Zhang's staff was already masking respiratory patients outside the hospital to avoid transmission. Her network in China has shipped palates of PPE to Chinese Hospital in San Francisco. Now there is a overflow.
And they are helping mobilize others. As early as February 1, Zhang teamed up with community leaders and city officials to give some of the earliest education on hygiene and sanitation.
We can stop this virus.
Alyson Stamos:
Local Chinese media shared the preventative messages widely.
Chi Wing Pau (through translator):
Our community realized the potential risk for an outbreak early on because a lot of us experienced the SARS outbrea A lot of people died.
Alyson Stamos:
Chi Wing Pau, manager of Far East Cafe, one the largest restaurants in Chinatown, shared information with his coworkers and customers.
Chi Wing Pau (through translator):
I hung up the flyers in the restrooms, kitchen, and outside the restaurant. I also told our staff everything I learned on how to prevent infection.
Alyson Stamos:
The restaurant is closed for business right now. They are instead using the kitchen to further keep the virus at bay.
Chi Wing Pau (through translator):
We're making a few hundred meals a day for elderly residents in the SRO. This helps minimize using the shared kitchen and the chance of being infected.
Alyson Stamos:
It has, in some ways, been the simple things that have kept the infection rate low, hot meals, more hand sanitizer and increased cleaning.
Yongfa Zhu (through translator):
They clean the kitchen, bathrooms and the floor twice a day in our building.
We stay in our rooms as much as possible because we're scared.
Alyson Stamos:
Recently, Chinese Hospital gave free tests to residents in Zhu's building.
Jian Zhang:
We don't have a vaccine yet. We don't have a cure, so meaning that outbreaks still can happen any time, so we cannot let our guard down. So, we still need to stay vigilant.
Yongfa Zhu (through translator):
I'm still afraid. There have been cases in other SROs in the city, so we have to be more careful.
If anyone tests positive, we can quarantine that person. It's beneficial to the person, because they can get treated, and it can protect others, too.
Alyson Stamos:
All 32 residents in Zhu's building who participated tested negative for the coronavirus. And testing continues. Getting ahead of any infection will be essential for the eventual reopening of the neighborhood.

Roger Stone was found guilty on 7 Federal Felony charges of Witness Tampering, Lying Under Oath to Congress and Obstruction of Congress. And it was all to protect Donald J Trump from investigation.

So last week with a stroke of a pen your President saw to it that Stone SKATED on what could have been 50 years in prison.

You can't say Donald J Trump didn't do his job ...

Trump did exactly what he was installed do. He signed a tax bill that RIPPED OFF the US Treasury for 2 trillion dollars and gave it the wealthiest people in the world ... his donors, himself and his family. Then Trump faked a Trade War with China recover some of the money from YOU .. as in Tariffs

I wouldn't expect much in the way of leadership, President Pretty has one job left do … get elected and keep the money grab going 4 more years.

Who the hell is this guy working for ..

Last Thursday Donald J Trump via the Justice Dept. asked the Supreme Court invalidate Obamacare. Because …. Solicitor General Noel Francisco said that once the law's individual coverage mandate and key provisions are invalidated, "the remainder of the ACA should not be allowed remain in effect."

Sure, lets put the thieves who administered Healthcare before Obamacare back in business.

20 million Americans purchase healthcare through the ACA.

Pandemic … another Democrat hoax.

COVID the newest pre-existing condition … cool $$$$$

Got some other pre-existing condition … fu-k off.

The house of cards is falling ... and here are some quotes from US Generals

" I shouldn't have been there" ... "it was a mistake", is what General Mark Milley the highest ranking US Military Officer had to say apologizing for his part in the violence incited by Trump and his photo op at St. John's Church.

General James Mattis …. " In union there is strength Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries divide us. In union there is strength. We are witnessing the consequences of 3 years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of 3 years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society."

Former Chief of Staff General John Kelly agreed with Mattis and added … “I think we need look harder at who we elect. I think we should start, regardless of what our views are in politics, I think we should look at people that are running for office and put them through the filter. What is their character like? What are their ethics?”

General Colin Powell .. "Trump lies ALL the time".

Kudos to the HUNDREDS of brave elected officials and law enforcement officials who walked and talked with demonstrators portesting the murder of George Floyd.

A Michigan Sheriff Chris Swanson took off his helmet, laid down his weapons and walked and talked with protesters … he told the crowd of protesters "these cops love you". Wow, that's what I leadership.

When the time came for Donald J Trump to show some leadership he was cowering in the White House bunker … and then he lied about it.
