      Good Morning and Congrats on First Judith! 🥇

        Morning, Dudette! How are things in your neck of the woods? Beautiful day here for going to the neighborhood farmers market for the first time in nearly a year. My immediate family is finally fully vaccinated. My daughter the Seattle public health nurse helped fellow members of the Somali Health Board vaccinate 500 Uber, Lyft, bus, and taxi drivers, overwhelmingly BIPOC folks. She’s also on a flying squad going into homeless shelters, small foster care homes, and other hard to reach recipients. So hard to stay ahead of the variants and the stupidity of the frat boy mentality, GOP refuseniks, etc.

          It’s a gorgeous day in my neck of the woods! I hope to get out and enjoy the sun a little later.
          Great news about your family! We’re almost there. Two more waiting for second appointments.
          Your daughter is a hero doing incredible work! She deserves endless thanks and all good things! Kudos to her and her proud mama! 😘❤️👏🏾

    President Biden:
    Infrastructure, American Jobs Plan.

  5. April 11, 2021 at 10:53 am

    “Remarks by President Biden on the American Jobs Plan”

    “It’s not a plan that tinkers around the edges; it’s a once-in-a-generation investment in America unlike anything we’ve done since we built the Interstate Highway System and won the Space Race decades ago.

    It’s the single largest investment in American jobs since World War Two, and it’s a plan that puts millions of Americans to work to fix what’s broken in our country: tens of thousands of miles of roads and highways, thousands of bridges in desperate need of repair.

    But it also is a blueprint for infrastructure needed for tomorrow — not just yesterday; tomorrow — for American jobs, for American competitiveness.”

    “Since last year, approximately 440 Cubans have died from COVID-19,
    giving Cuba one of the lowest death rates per capita in the world.

    “Cuba has heavily invested in its medical and pharmaceutical system for decades,
    in part because of the six-decade U.S. embargo that has made it harder for Cuba to import equipment and raw materials from other countries.

    That investment,
    coupled with the country’s free, universal healthcare system,
    has helped Cuba keep the virus under control and quickly develop vaccines against it…”

    the Vermont Senator said.

    “Let’s not water down a bill for a party that’s not actually interested in bipartisanship
    or wait for Republicans to have some awakening on climate change,”
    Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said earlier this month.

    “We’ve seen some of the worst of what the U.S. can do: In 2018 and 2019,
    Amnesty International and the Women’s Refugee Commission visited the temporary influx facilities for unaccompanied children at Tornillo and Carrizo Springs in Texas, and the notorious Homestead facility in Florida. Advocacy groups like ours sounded the alarm, calling for accountability for human rights violations at these facilities. We demanded an end to the cruel policies that had necessitated the use of these facilities at all — forcibly separating families and using children as bait to deport their potential sponsors.
    Now it’s time for the U.S. to envision its best, and seize this window of opportunity to break out of the cycle of urgent response.

    Let’s be clear: the Biden administration has inherited a chaotic, punitive system that doesn’t prioritize the well-being of children seeking safety in our country. Yet, the administration cannot wait to deliver promised change. And no matter the situation or who’s heading the administration, the government can’t get out of its human rights obligations. We know from previous challenges at the border that reform needs to start now,
    or else it will never happen.”

    “When taking stock of Trump’s “legacy,” don’t forget the number of political appointees who’ve since burrowed into the federal bureaucracy.”
    “As a presidential administration nears its end,
    some political appointees decide they want to stick around for a while — and become career officials.
    It’s a process known as “burrowing,” because it involves personnel burrowing into federal bureaucracy, where they’ll enjoy civil service protections, and where they can try to keep the former administration’s efforts going.”

    Statement from Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex:

    IN LOVING MEMORY OF
    His Royal Highness
    The Duke of Edinburgh
    1921-2021

    “My grandfather was a man of service, honour and great humour.
    He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm—and also because you never knew what he might say next.

    He will be remembered as the longest reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ‘til the end.

    He has been a rock for Her Majesty The Queen with unparalleled devotion, by her side for 73 years of marriage, and while I could go on, I know that right now he would say to all of us, beer in hand, ‘Oh do get on with it!’

    So, on that note, Grandpa, thank you for your service, your dedication to Granny, and for always being yourself. You will be sorely missed, but always remembered—by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.”

    If ya’ll havent heard. you will soon hear about another shooting (multiple people) at one of our local high schools. This is the FIFTH shooting around this school this year. Four teenagers already killed. All we know now is that one resource officer has been injured, no idea how bad. No idea about number of students affected, in short, we know very little now. National news wires have picked it up. Remember, our governor signed last week a new permitless carry bill!!!!!!! #thoughtsandprayersmeannothing

      “Michigan Shows Why Managing The COVID-19 Endgame Is So Hard”

      “Michigan did so well in the last surge that I actually think part of it is that they may just have more vulnerable people and a lower level of population immunity than many other states,” said Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health….

      But from the get-go, Whitmer faced a sharp backlash from Trump, who didn’t take kindly to her public criticisms of his erratic, frequently indifferent crisis management, as well as from anti-restriction Michiganders, some of whom defied her orders openly….

      The critics never represented a majority of Whitmer’s constituents…

      Meanwhile, Republicans have used their gerrymandered control of the Michigan Legislature to undermine Whitmer’s authority. They also sued to strip her of emergency powers. Their victory, at the hands of conservative justices who at the time were a majority on the state Supreme Court, forced her to issue public health orders through the state Department of Health and Human Services, which has its own legal authority….

      Even as public health experts seek new restrictions, she’s facing calls from Republicans to dial them back.”
