    Pandemic crisis opportunities blown or abused

    The coronavirus crisis produced the opportunity to create miracle vaccines. So much for the good news. The bad news is, the vaccine-makers are breaking the bank over-charging the world. Just one offense cited in John Nichols's new book Coronavirus Criminals and Pandemic Profiteers. Politicians and corporate chiefs make villainy and greed a public-private partnership.

Respect for Marash

Not in agreement concerning vaccines and the idea that economically average and below average citizens (the masses) need to put the welfare of society before their own. Since when have corporations, the government, the 1% done that? Huge fortunes are made and preserved by destroying the health and well being of most all sentient beings on this planet by corporations that force their power over us all, aided by the government. There are so many examples. Cancer Alley in Louisiana. Smithfield Farmland in NC with their millions of gallons of pig waste kept in unlined lakes draining into the ground water during hurricane season. Oil spillage from offshore pipeline disasters. The list is unending.

Dave Marash is someone I have been familiar with since he was on the CBS local news with Jim Jensen to his time on Al Jazeera. I respect critical thinking and there is very little when fear over takes the human mind and we all become victims of that fear.

If there is a homeopathic vaccine I might consider that, but to take anything from a CDC, anything endorsed by Dr. Fauci , who have never recommended that ppl take personal charge of their health to avoid COVID-19 would be stupid. Wear a mask, wash hands, social distancing. Is that all they have? No mention of increased water intake, better diet, non pharmaceutical remedies to improve lungs, weight loss. None of these things fill the pockets of pharmaceutical companies.

Anyone who takes this vaccine before the “herd” has been tested is foolish. Yes, that is how the 99% are viewed, we are the herd and the wealthy, government, corporations are the herders.

Unfortunately, critical thinkers opposed to vaccines for themselves are viewed as Trump supporting QAnon crazies. I am neither.

One other thing, the quality of water, air and soil I In this country - world does not promote health. Prescription of antibiotics inhalers steroids have chipped away the health of every person while making money for corporations. Curtailing corporations is not happening, vaccines make money, pharmaceuticals make money. Flint Michigan still has no decent water & 5 or motel years later nada. The government does not care about the health of the citizens in this country, or anywhere.

I like the way the topics here are not the same ones that are over-covered by other political talk shows. Kudos on a refreshing range of interests!

Marash's sharp intelligence shines

Renowned journalist Dave Marash gets his decades' worth of contacts to discuss important issues of the day and explain them. That alone would be great, but Marash's own considerable knowledge allows him to ask sharp, pointed questions that reveal more than you'd normally get from an interview. Excellent all around.
