A Nation Divided by Turmoil: Biden's Victory is America's Failure

Another long-winded, incoherent speech fraught with inaccuracies and false accusations.  As the polls have closed and ballots are meticulously being counted across key states, many deign to criminalize Trump for his boisterous proclamations and unorthodox leadership. However, the truth of the matter may be far more sinister than you care to imagine...Biden asserts that he and his party maintain the moral high ground in this tumultuous race for presidency. But do they really? In fact, the vast majority of Southern Democrats vehemently opposed a ban on slavery while the Republican party sought to win their freedom. Indeed, it may appear that times have changed... unless you bother to read the many defamatory statements made throughout Biden's long and storied political career -- statements targeting both women and African Americans. Although to be safe, let's assume his bigotry extended far beyond that which we've covered. So as it now seems more certain than ever that we'

The CDC is Considering a Reversal of its Stance on Face Masks

Despite previous criticism of face masks being used to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus, American political officials are making a huge leap forward in admitting fault. As Los Angeles mayor, Eric Garcetti stood behind the podium at a daily COVID-19 press meeting, he made sure to loop a black cloth face mask around his ears before addressing the public. For the first time since the pathogen spread, he officially urged L.A. residents to wear face masks in public.

He made light of the situation by saying "This will be the look," as he addressed the public onlookers. "Wearing these on the streets is something that will help us all control that spread, and most importantly, when we go to the grocery store or something, keep those frontline workers from getting sick." 

For a nation that heavily criticized Asian populations for the use of surgical masks when tackling earlier pandemics and air pollutants, this statement was a profound admittance of negligence and misinformation. Still, no matter how late we choose to take a step in the right direction, history will forever remember the choices we've made -- city by city, state by state -- until the entire nation adopts a more serious stance towards managing the virus. 

The L.A. mayor had a difficult speech to deliver in addressing the current pandemic.

His announcement was only the starting point of a nationwide strategy to tackle the issue head-on. It's not unusual for governments to test new policies on a single metropolitan area before implementing adequate measures nationwide. The CDC is now contemplating a reversal on its advisory to reserve face masks for medical professionals and those suffering from contagion. Instead, they're likely to advise widespread use to mitigate the viral spread of this destructive virus.

Do you already wear a face mask when leaving home? Are you currently quarantined and going stir crazy at home? Either way, we've overcome far worse as a species and will undoubtedly reach the other side -- battered and scathed, yes -- but victorious.
