I was stunned when I read the article by Mr. Parks in the Talbot Spy yesterday. Mr Parks said that he, and apparently others, are not self-quarantining, since he used the phrase “we’re not self-quarantining.” He then went on to criticize President Trump’s handling of coronavirus in many ways, including questioning President Trump’s leadership qualities, none of which complaints were valid and none of which helped stop the spread of the virus in the slightest respect.
I ask you, Mr Parks, why are you not self-quarantining? You should be! All Americans should be!
We’re all in this together! Rather than criticizing the President, let’s try following his advice so that we, as Americans, not as Democrats or Republicans, or as Trump-Lovers or Trump Haters, but as Americans, can defeat the coronavirus!
President Trump has requested legislation to make whole those workers who are losing their jobs due to virus related closings, and to make whole businesses who are losing money or being forced to close due to the virus.
Why don’t we make certain that every penny of our tax dollars in the final version of such legislation actually goes towards victims of coronavirus, and not to the various state and local “pet pork” projects of Congressmen, Congresswomen or Senators. If any dollar does not go towards those coronavirus goals lets hold those who are responsible for such accountable by voting them out of office in November.
Let’s work together as Americans to solve this problem and not constantly criticize the President for his efforts without offering any alternative workable solutions. The biggest complaint that we hear is “why have more people not been tested?” How can you test 320 million Americans with an invasive testing procedure that requires a hazmat suit to ensure that the tester is not infected? We don’t have 320 million tests or 320 million hazmat suits in the US, or even in the World. Let’s all listen to our President’s advice and put forth our best efforts to self-quarantine, and let’s defeat this as proud Americans, the same way that we have overcome numerous obstacles in the past!
