    You are welcome to read all of my previous post supporting a socialized medical system for the U.S. -- including my posts stating Obamacare did not go far enough and was just a giveaway to the healthcare, pharma, and insurance industries -- especially since their lobbyists wrote most of the bill.

    At the same time I have pointed out the drawbacks of a socialized medical system including the long waits. The U.S. could model any potential system on many different countries -- the best model would be a public/private hybrid like Germany where people call all have the public system or pay a little more for private medical insurance offered by their employer. This type of model would potentially fit the U.S. well.

    Brazilian Supreme Court orders probe into Bolsonaro for linking COVID-19 vaccines to AIDS

    BRASILIA, Dec 3 (Reuters) - A Brazilian Supreme Court justice ordered on Friday that a probe be opened into President Jair Bolsonaro for having said during a live broadcast on multiple social media platforms in October that COVID-19 vaccines may raise the chance of contracting AIDS.

    Brazil's President Bolsonaro leads a mob in demanding health experts supporting vaccination be executed and wants all of their names released to the public so his supporters can hunt them down.

    Brazil's Bolsonaro wants names of vaccine-approving officials despite death threats

    Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that he has asked for the names of health officials that had approved COVID-19 vaccines for children in Brazil, saying he planned to make their identities public despite previous death threats.

    In late October, Brazil's health regulator, Anvisa, released a statement saying that five of its directors had received death threats over the possible approval of COVID-19 vaccinations for children aged between five and 11 years old. The agency granted such approval for the Pfizer shot on Thursday.

    Anvisa said it had reported the emailed threats to police and prosecutors.

    In a live weekly broadcast on multiple social media platforms, Bolsonaro said he does not interfere in Anvisa's internal affairs, but had asked for the officials' names so that the public "could come to its own judgments."

    Bolsonaro has consistently cast doubt on the efficacy and safety of coronavirus vaccines and sharply criticized all forms of social distancing. His handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has claimed over 618,000 lives in Brazil, is widely cited as a reason his popularity has plummeted this year.

    Most recent polls have the right-wing former army captain's approval rating in the low 20s.

    Anvisa did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday.

    Be prepared to wave goodbye to this idiot... record low popularity at a mere 19%.

    Why 2022 Might Be the Year Brazil Says Goodbye to President Bolsonaro

    After three tumultuous years, Brazilians will soon get the chance to boot out or re-elect their far-right President Jair Bolsonaro. With elections due to be held in October 2022, candidates are launching their campaigns and the race to lead the world’s fourth-largest democracy is heating up. The former army captain may already be in trouble: his approval ratings slipped to a record low of 19% in late November, with 60% of the population saying he is doing a bad job.
