USA Coronavirus Political Finger pointing blame root cause?

The Chicago Tribune – AP news headline titled, Months wasted in Pandemic Prep, reports political finger pointing of the months wasted for the present administration to “bolster stockpiles after alarms sounded.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to remind ourselves of an ancient saying that explain the “psychological set” that occurred that fixated every politician and news media to focus on during the time the “alarms sounded.”

King Solomon

A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth: and the recompence of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him. (Proverb 12:14)

Gils Bible Commentary Excerpts

A man shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, The wholesome advice, the good instruction, and sound doctrine.

and the recompence of a man’s hand shall be rendered unto him; if his words turn to his account, much more his works;

What’s My Points?

Two points need to be considered by politicians before finger pointing to blame anyone for not listening when the alarms sounded.

1.What was in the news that created the “psychological set” the USA eyes and ears were focused on during the critical time to listen and prepare for the pandemic that began in the latter half of 2019 in China in December 2019 and carried on into early February 2020. During this time every Washington politician was summoned to Washington DC to listen and spend their time discerning truth or falsehoods.

2.What was not being heard or was the “Psychological set” the cause of politician’s time being fruitful or wasted time which might have been much more fruitful time to focus on the pandemic during this critical time frame?

My point is to remind politicians and news media to discern first the core reasons of what was not being discerned when the “alarms sounded” that might have been heard if the Nation was not in a state of “psychological set” on an unfruitful endeavor.

In My Opinion

Politicians and news media should consider an old idiom so as not to waste anymore unfruitful time in our Nation during this pandemic.

“Don’t throw stones if you live in glass houses.”

What we need now is to be united to focus on what is fruitful to help each other during this pandemic instead of pointing fingers of blame, especially if we live in glass houses.
