FOWC with Fandango — Dangerous

FOWC

It’s November 25, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “dangerous.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

One-Liner Wednesday — Herd Immunity

“Never in the history of public health has herd immunity been used as a strategy for responding to an outbreak.”

The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

Despite the fact that top infectious-disease experts around the world, including the head of the WHO, say the idea of a herd immunity strategy for combating COVID-19 is unworkable and far too dangerous, proponents pushing to allow the coronavirus to circulate freely among healthy young people until herd immunity is reached have found a receptive audience inside the Trump White House.

Donald Trump is killing America. Literally.

She also found him to be a little dangerous, which she thought was thrilling…to her dying breath.

Armed and Dangerous

I’ve been concerned for many months that, were something to happen to Donald Trump, from indictment to impeachment, violence on the part of his ardent supporters will ensue.

At the risk of sounding a bit over dramatic, we may be standing at the precipice of a new American civil war.

Vladimir Putin must be licking his chops.
