Joe Biden’s administration has inexplicably decided to abrogate the intellectual property rights of vaccine manufacturers to satisfy a fringe progressive demand. Why? And the New York Times has all but declared the pandemic behind us as vaccination rates in the U.S. crater.

    Why didn’t the CDC come up with a vaccine? Seems to me all they produce is propaganda for the Democrats.

    One critical point early in the pandemic was when the CDC completely botched the COVID test.  At that point, if I understand it correctly, Trump decided to let the Pharma companies step in to develop testing and vaccines. He should also have taken that abject failure by the CDC as an opportunity to sideline Fauci, Birx et al, and bring in Atlas et al.  He probably would have been impeached, but hey, what else is new?

    The CDC couldnt produce covid test kits. Its a government agency, it regulates and is not a producer. Its actually worse, its counter productive.

    Not much point in having a Center for Disease Control that doesn’t do anything to you know, control diseases.

    Everything in politics is ironically named. The clean air act, sets the standard over how dirty the air can get. Democrats are not democratic. There are numerous examples.

    After Biden kills off big Pharma for having the nerve to make a profit, save lives and keep the country from imploding, all we will have to save us next time will be bungling leftist bureaucrats like the CDC. And there will be a next time. China is just getting started.

    Yes, this is not a once in a lifetime event. Pandemics occur regularly every 12 – 15 years. SARS, MERS, flu, etc.

    Also, of the 277 kids who died of covid, how many where already profoundly ill?
