Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

AZ half a percent diff there? and still counting last few percent, so possibly re-count? but then rules different in every state?
Not in Navajo Nation!!
In Arizona, the Navajo Nation showed overwhelming support for Joe Biden. Apache, Navajo, and Coconino counties—all of which overlap with the Navajo Nation—gave 97% support to Biden (73,954 votes) compared with just 3% (2,010 votes) for President Donald Trump, according to the Navajo Times.

While punditry has focused on Biden’s success with Latino voters in the state, his performance inside the Navajo Nation has been even more stunning and is arguably just as much a rebuke of Trump and his inept pandemic response—which has been particularly devastating to Indigenous Americans—as it is an endorsement of Biden’s policies. The Navajo Nation, the largest reservation in the U.S., had at least 560 deaths from Covid-19—a higher death rate than any state.

Well, Tribal health and Tribal economies (mostly gaming) got major good news today. While they are traditionally Democratic, again one can speculate on how their vote percentages would have split in the Alternative History World of an earlier Pfizer announcement. I guess we'll have to leave that to the sci-fi writers. As I said before, my suspicion is that it wouldn't have changed the overall outcome for Trump.

During this period, the use of medications during pregnancy was not strictly controlled, and drugs were not thoroughly tested for potential harm to the fetus.[32]

You could have fooled me. His approach is transactional + fast payoff. He is a businessman.
Trump likes cublc splines.Not long ago he suggested bleach.

FDA has to approve (About thee vaccine, not the bleach).
If I was really cynical, I would say Trump haters are rooting for disapproval!
Not really. Remember Thalidomide. A couple,of my buddies' pregnant mothers used it in 1952.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thalidomi ... ect_crisis


At the time...

During this period, the use of medications during pregnancy was not strictly controlled, and drugs were not thoroughly tested for potential harm to the fetus.[32] Thousands of pregnant women took the drug to relieve their symptoms. At the time of the drug's development, scientists did not believe any drug taken by a pregnant woman could pass across the placental barrier and harm the developing fetus,[36] even though the effect of alcohol on fetal development had been documented by case studies on alcoholic mothers since at least 1957.[37] There soon appeared reports of abnormalities in children being born to mothers using thalidomide. In late 1959, it was noticed that peripheral neuritis developed in patients who took the drug over a period of time, and it was only after this point that thalidomide ceased to be provided over the counter.[38]

Not many true scientists left out there, but also people are more distrustful.

U are likely not aware of it, but free speech under strong attack in the USA now. 

I was able to distribute a post now in counties such as Russia, Hong Kong, India and any Europe countries something that got blocked in USA, I though stupid AI, but upheld even after I appealed series of times!  

The extreme paranoia there now even blocks free speech about physics! (major platform!, not kidding!)

There's actually a good opportunity here for the upcoming Biden admin. In the US, ObamaCare was financed originally by a mandatory buy-insurance-or-pay-a-tax provision, a provision which the Republicans hated and killed off. Likely, the rest of the law remains in place after the Supreme court soon decides, and it still needs financing. Even a replacement law would need financing. So, what would make sense now would be a mandatory get-vaccinated-or-pay-a-tax law. Both Republicans and Democrats should be able to agree on that one.

when I was in the area I think he was known for the man that had reduced crime in NYC   https://www.businessinsider.com.au/criticism-for-giulianis-broken-windows-theory-2013-8  at least derivative-credit

I was not so convinced when I got lost in Bronx (one of my first trips by car to manhattan) and was so happy when I finally see a police car, but when close enough to it I could see it had broken windows and was placed on corner to show: here we are in control, not the police!
