BREAKING NEWS:

United States of America #1 in the World in Covid-19 Infection at 4,976,177 and Death Toll at 161,679

As of August 6, 2020


Pushing Americans to Send Their Children to School This Fall While Children of Leaders Attending Private Schools Stays at Home.

The combination of this Administration Leadership and Blind Support from Republican Loyalists has resulted in the most Devastating Death Toll from COVID19. Today, Forcing Teachers and Schools to Reopen without proper guidance from top healthcare professionals and advisors. It is the latest mutation of this Administration's Glaring Incompetence.

From Downplaying of this threat at the onset of this global pandemic, to Lack of PPE's and Covid-19 Testing, to Hydroxychloroquine and Injecting Disinfectant, Rushing to Reopen Economy, to Emboldening (potentially) White Supremacists in Uniform, to Russian Bounties over the Lives of American Soldiers, absolute defiance on Wearing Masks, and now Forcing Teachers and Schools to Reopen.

The danger of creating legions of 'LOYALISTS' that adheres to the concept of 'Blind Loyalty' and willing to risk their own life just to support an individual or party. To loyalists, seeking clean air, water, and protecting the environment becomes a 'political agenda', rather than basic human fight for self preservation. Today, loyalists of this Administration sees the head of CDC and Evidence Based Approach as threat to their well being and treat the people who are trying to protect them as enemies. Loyalists to this administration now sees 'Wearing Masks' as another 'Political Agenda', rather than mere self-protection and protection of people around you.

How do I know how loyalists behave and how they think, because I grew up with parents who are loyalists. But, there are signs that following a political figure blindly is more prevalent in 'older generation' and not likely on younger ones. I used to share the mindset of my parents but I was able to open my views and realized that I really don't conform to the idea of supporting a political figure or party no matter what. I also don't see this type of mindset on my children.

There is a smart way to re-open our economy but it should be based on science and recommendations from smart people and not from politicians or media host that acts as political strategists of this Administration.

Finally, the only way to reopen communities is to conduct more covid-19 testing, and proper contact tracing. This is our only chance to mitigate damages from this deadly virus and the smart way to reopening our communities.

Fake Faith vs Real Faith

I think it is important for us to read what the bible actually says about having REAL FAITH vs FAKE FAITH.

1. REAL FAITH is More Than Just What I SAY
- JESUS: “Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of SAYING you have faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't save anyone!” James 2:14
- JESUS: “Not everyone who SAYS that I am their Lord is going to enter the kingdom of heaven. The only people who’ll enter heaven are those who DO what my Father in heaven want. Matthew 7:21

2. REAL FAITH is More Than EMOTIONS I Feel
“Suppose you see a brother or sister who needs food or clothing, and you say to them, ‘I wish you well! I FEEL FOR YOU and I hope you stay warm and eat well!’ but then you DO nothing to meet their needs. What good does your sympathy DO? It’s worth nothing! In the same way, faith, if it is not accompanied by action, doesn’t work. It’s dead and useless!” James 2:15-17

3. REAL FAITH is More Than An Idea I DEBATE
“Now someone may argue, ‘Isn’t it possible that some people have good faith while other people DO good deeds?’ But I say, ‘No! I can't see your real faith if you don't DO any real deeds to SHOW ME!’ In contrast, I CAN SHOW YOU my faith by the good things I DO!” James 2:18

4. REAL FAITH is More Than The Truth I BELIEVE
“Now, you say ‘Well, I BELIEVE there is a God,’ and I say ‘Good for you!’ But even the demons believe THAT and are afraid! It’s foolish to not realize that faith in God is useless if you don’t DO what he wants you to DO.” James 2:19-20

5. REAL FAITH is Something I DO
“Just as a body without a spirit doesn’t breathe and is dead, so faith that doesn't DO anything is just as dead!” James 2:26

We have witnessed an individual posing for a photo op holding a bible for everyone to see while giving instructions to clear out peaceful protestors in order get to that location to shoot that photo op. It is amazing to watch people who call themselves Christians buy into this type of a scheme and completely fall for mere appearances of being good, or FAKE FAITH.

TOP STORY: Texas teachers are ‘writing wills’ while this administration continues to push for schools to reopen this fall...

With nearly 11,000 confirmed novel coronavirus cases reported on Tuesday, Texas broke its own record for the third time in the last week. ICU beds are in short supply, hospitals are filling up, and there’s no end in sight to the rapid rise in cases, but Texas still plans to reopen schools this fall. Teachers are becoming increasingly concerned about putting themselves and their students at risk, and are starting to make their voices heard.

“Many of our teachers, staff, or their family members have underlying health conditions that would place them at severe risk of [contracting] COVID-19,” Executive Director of the United Educators Association Steven Poole wrote in a letter to Texas Governor Greg Abbott this Monday. “While parents are given options to send their children to school or stay home for virtual instruction, teachers and staff do not have that option.”

Back in June, before the infection rate exploded in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott announced that schools would open in August and would be required to provide in-person instruction five days a week. The Texas Tribune reported at the time that Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath added that it would be “safe for Texas public school students, teachers and staff to return to school campuses for in-person instruction this fall.”

Morath doubled down on July 7th by announcing that public schools would have to reopen for in-person classes in August if they want to receive state funding, despite the fact that the virus was clearly out of control. This might have been the tipping point for some teachers, including Jessica Schwinn, who wrote on Twitter that “teachers are writing wills, getting medical power of attorney established, and taking out extra life insurance.”


A TWEET from A TEACHER:
"It's pretty atrocious that in preparation for returning to school this fall, teachers are writing wills, getting medical power of attorney established, and taking out extra life insurance. This country has chosen it's priorities. It's money over people."

Teachers, parents, lawmakers, and students are all in agreement that distance learning is an inferior way to teach and learn when compared to in-person instruction, but a report from the Kaiser Family Foundation reveals that around 1.5 million teachers are at higher risk of serious illness if they were to contract COVID-19, as CNN reports. Furthermore, children are not immune to catching or spreading the disease. New York saw dozens of children hospitalized with symptoms of a rare and serious illness after they were exposed to the novel coronavirus.

This is an incredibly complex issue, but there are already teachers becoming infected and dying at schools that were holding classes over the summer. Tens of thousands of teachers undoubtedly fall into the high-risk category in Texas, and they will be putting their lives on the line if schools do fully reopen next month.
