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'

Tanzanian President Blames the Sharp Rise of COVID-19 Cases on Defective Tests

Within a single month, the country of Tanzania saw a dramatic rise in Coronavirus infections. Though only 40 cases had been previously recorded in the country, that number rapidly changed to 480 and counting. Who's to blame? If you believe the government's leader, that question would be more correctly framed with the pronoun 'what,' as he claims its an issue of faulty test kits...

In fact, to demonstrate his claim, their current leader claims that a number of non-human (and even unconscious) organisms were tested, named, and sent to the laboratory as though the samples were drawn from ordinary citizens. Surprisingly, or perhaps rather unsurprisingly, they all came back positive despite the impossibility of that being true. 

An interesting fact you might be unaware of is that the oldest human skull yet discovered was found in the nation of Tanzania, and dates back to two-million years ago.

In response, the president has insinuated possible interference by an unknown saboteur. Yet we should remind ourselves that this is a country that's been repeatedly criticized for its lackadaisical approach in combating the virus. While most nations have gone into lockdown and imposed important safety regulations, Tanzania has kept its places of worship open, with a presidential suggestion that the public should "pray the virus away."

As interesting as that idea may be, if it were a viable solution to our current predicament, America's Bible Belt and the vast majority of reli
gious nations would have long since rid themselves of the virus's horrific effects, the global death toll would have been prevented from its rapid ascent, and most of the world's economies would be rebuilding themselves through increased output. 

Unfortunately, the reality we live in is quite different from the one Tanzanian President John Magufuli perceives. Idealism and religious insanity can only get one so far before science and rationality must be applied to solving pressing concerns. And that's the crux of the matter here; science and rationality mean nothing to men with true power. How can you grow disillusioned of wealth and power when it's being fed to you by a suffering public? What intrinsic value does a sound understanding of science and logic offer such men?

That's all for today! I should apologize for the brief hiatus, as I'd been camping throughout my three-day weekend. The weather has grown uncomfortably warm and humid in Taiwan, yet the outdoors holds the promise of seeing wildlife and escaping light pollution. If you're in one of the few places without government-mandated quarantine, I hope you can enjoy spring's radiance and the promise of summer's arrival.
