The Great Compromise Has Begun

A few days ago I wrote a post entitled, The Great Compromise. When I wrote it, I thought it might still be a little while before we would get to that point. Apparently my thinking was way off.

I have no words today. After reading and listening throughout the day about how doctors are being fired, health professionals are being silenced, medical personnel quitting because they no longer have equipment to keep them safe, hospitals not wanting the truth to be told, and how all of the workers above are getting sick themselves,… Continue reading Plain and Simple, We Are F*
