Followup: Vaccines in Florida

Executive Summary:

– Yesterday, Sarkes exposed the Florida Vaccine Vacation Scam

– The same day, Florida changed it’s policy on who gets the Vaccine

Sarkes Corner crack investigative reports exposed a scam that was impacting hundreds of thousand Florida Seniors, age 65 and up, who cannot get an appointment for a Coronavirus Vaccine.   All the while, “Vacationers” from Foreign Countries, and Rich Old White Men from out of state, have been able butt in line to receive the Coronavirus Vaccine, all they needed to do was to prove that they were 65 and older. 

Resident Florida Seniors are frustrated that they cannot get a Vaccine

Simultaneously with the posting of Sarkes Corner, Florida State Officials took action to limit the scant supply of COVID-19 vaccine to full-time and part-time residents.  An Executive Order was issued requiring people seeking an appointment for a Vaccine to provide proof of residency, putting an end to the Vaccine Vacations.

Florida Governor Ron DUHSantis did an abrupt about face to minimize the embarrassment of Vaccine Vacations

After the Posting of Sarkes Corner and the Flip Flop announcement of DUHSantis, the Sarkes Corner Website crashed with the rush of comments coming in from cherished Sarkes Corner subscribers.

A small handful of the comments were critical, stating that Sarkes had broke the Vaccine Vacation Scam story AFTER Florida executed the Flip Flop.  Comments included: 

“Sarkes, you are guilty of bayoneting the dead, shameful”

“This is Fake News, or at best, Alternate Facts, you should be ashamed”

“I can no longer watch Fox News and now I need to boycott Sarkes Corner”

But, the overwhelming majority of comments, over 95 percent, were supportive of the professional reporting from Sarkes Corner staff, and the impact the story had on forcing Florida to change the Vaccine process and eliminating Vaccine Vacations.

You see, Sarkes had sent a draft of the Sarkes Corner that was going to expose the Vaccine Vacations to Ron DUHSantis well in advance of posting the article yesterday.  Sarkes did not get a reply from DUHSantis.  But, apparently DUHSantis, understanding the power and reach of Sarkes Corner, did a 180 degree Flip Flop, in record time, and changed the Vaccine Policy.

Floridians are so frustrated with the antics and bungling of the DUHSantis administration.  “Many People Say” Sarkes, we beg you to run for Florida Governor in 2022 and give the Old Heave Ho to this Clown DUHSantis.  Alas, Sarkes must disappoint his constituents.  Sarkes states emphatically:  “Sarkes shall not seek, and will not accept, the nomination of my party, for the Governorship of Florida.  If nominated, Sarkes will not run, if elected, Sarkes will not serve.”

Sarkes must catch up on travel lost to the Coronavirus, no time to be the Florida Governor

Vaccines in Florida

Executive Summary:

  • Florida has always been a tourism destination 
  • Now, foreigners and out-of-staters are heading to the Gunshine State for a COVID-19 vaccine vacation

Thanks to Dr. Todd Ruecker for this breaking story from Florida, the Gunshine State.  Dr. Ruecker, widely recognized as the smartest subscriber to Sarkes Corner, is often confused with singer Darius Rucker, but they are not related.

Todd and Darius are both successful, but are not related

Although many states are now expanding their eligibility criteria for the COVID-19 vaccine, Florida was one of the first to offer the shot to adults aged 65 and older.   Editors Note:  Sarkes and Chris, residents of Estero, FL, have received their first COVID-19 vaccine and are scheduled for their second shot on February 6.

Chris and Sarkes are beneficiaries of the Senior Friendly Florida vaccination policy

“Many People Say” that the reason that Florida was the first state to give priority to Seniors who are 65 years old is yet another Political Ploy from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.  You see, DUHSantis, a Donald Trump Orange Mini-Me, is up for reelection in 2022 and hopes that a Tsunami of Florida Seniors will thank him for his compassion and give him a second term.

Over the past 4 years, DUHSantis, the Orange Mini-Me, was one of the most loyal Trump Lap Dogs
DUHSantis is Pro-Wall, and supported Trump by building a big beautiful wall in Florida to keep out the Haitians and others from Shit-Hole Countries

Now, Vaccine-seekers have flocked to Florida from Canada and Argentina, as well as New York and other states.  Governor DUHSantis said in a press conference that most of these visitors are in fact part-time residents, not so-called “vaccine tourists.” “If they have a residence and they’re not just kind of flying by night for a week or two, I’m totally fine with that.  That’s a little bit different than somebody that’s just doing tourism and trying to come here. So we’re discouraging people to come to Florida just to get a vaccine.”

DUHSantis would want you to believe that he is a compassionate, man of the people, don’t be hoodwinked, he is just clueless

However, Florida’s Vaccination Plan DOES NOT require proof of Florida residency for someone to get vaccinated.  Several instances of “outsiders” getting the Coronavirus have been cited:

A 66-year-old woman from Buenos Aires was visiting family in Miami and decided to try to get the vaccine while she was here since the vaccine is not widely available in Argentina.  She went to an official vaccination site in Tampa, showed her passport as identification and proof of travel insurance, and got a vaccine.

Many people from Argentina can pass for Floridian Hispanics

Two Rich, Old, White Guys, New Jersey developers David and Bill Mack, circumvented the official vaccine distribution process and got their shots thanks to their connections with a Florida nursing home. 

The Macks prove that there are advantages for being Rich, Old, and White
The Macks were not required to stand in long lines like Poorer, Senior Floridians

Even Canadian “snowbirds”, who canceled their trips to Florida this year due to the pandemic, are now considering rescheduling in light of DUHSantis’ vaccine rollout.

Sarkes misses his Canadian neighbors and supports them coming back for a Vaccine 
Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, Eh, knows that if more Canadians go to the US for their Vaccines, the more he will have for his constituents, Eh

Finally, there is a Republican Civil War brewing in Florida.  DUHSantis’ predecessor, and current US Senator, Rick “Tricky Ricky” Scott, has called for a federal investigation into Florida’s coronavirus vaccine distribution, citing reports that Donors to South Florida nursing homes are being offered life-saving shots ahead of the general public. 

You know Tricky Ricky, former CEO of Columbia/HCA.  Under The Tricksters Leadership, Columbia/HCA committed massive Medicare Fraud, and agreed to pay $1.7 billion in fines, then the largest health care fraud case in the country.  But don’t worry about Tricky Ricky, he has repented, thanks to a Golden Parachute that included:  a 5.1 MILLION Severance, 300 MILLION in Stock, and $950,000 per year consulting contract for 5 years.  Not bad.

Rick Scott knows Fraud when he sees it

Rick Scott reports that an executive at West Palm Beach’s MorseLife Health System called donors and members of the assisted living facility’s board and offered them vaccinations while millions of elderly and vulnerable Floridians struggled to get access to the shots.  Tricky Ricky called the details of the report “disgusting,” “immoral” and evidence of “gross mismanagement.”  Scott said:  “We have to do everything possible to get this vaccine out in an efficient and fair manner, and I am calling for a full Congressional investigation into reports of improper vaccine distribution”. 

When DUHSantis was asked about the reports of mismanagement of the vaccine distribution, he said:  “I’m not sure about that.”  Of course he isn’t sure.

Of course DUHSantis is confused, he though all was well

The Florida Civil War between Tricky Ricky Scott and DUHSantis is not new, the Vaccine distribution scandal is just the latest volley. The two Republicans clashed last year over the state’s failing unemployment system, with each pointing a finger at the other for the debacle.  And, The Trickster has been critical of the way DUHSantis has handled the Coronavirus in Florida.

“Many People Say” that this Florida Civil War has erupted as both Tricky Ricky, DUHSantis, along with “Little” Marco Rubio have all expressed interest in running for President in 2024.

Tricky Ricky Scott, Ron DUHSantis, and Little Marco Rubio might come up short if the Orange Candidate decides to run in 2024

The NRA Needs You

Executive Summary:

  • The National Rifle Association (NRA) has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
  • More than ever, the NRA needs all Great Americans to “Stand Up and Stand By”

The National Rifle Association (NRA), the powerful gun lobby that has been at the center of some of the nation’s most heated debates over weapons rights, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Friday.  The NRA needs your help!

DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMERSarkes does not Pack Heat.  In fact, Sarkes only remembers firing a weapon once, and that was at Boy Scout Camp with Son David over 30 years back (a 22 Single Shot Rifle).  But Sarkes, a Truth Machine, does not let this interfere with his Fair and Balanced Reporting.  DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER

The only Heat that Sarkes Packs is his Long Rifle Lighter used to light candles and BBQ Grill

Our Founding Fathers, in their wisdom, crafted the 2nd Amendment, although “Many People Say” it should have been the 1st amendment:  “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

The Founding Fathers should have switched the order of the 1st and 2nd Amendments 

You see, our Founding Fathers fought for our Freedom in the War for Independence against England using single shot rifles and pistols, BUT, our Founding Fathers had the vision that Weapon technology would evolve to today’s Large Magazine, Semi Automatic Assault Weapons.  The 2nd Amendment is no mistake, Noooo. 

The Founding Fathers vision for America is legendary

Founded in 1871, the NRA has built a reputation as one of the nation’s fiercest protectors of gun rights, becoming a major force in national politics and government.

Today, the NRA has more than 5 million members, but still has faced financial turmoil in recent years.  The NRA has also experienced a public power struggle between Wayne LaPierre and Oliver North that ended with North getting the Old Heave Ho in 2019.

Wayne LaPierre got “The Drop” on Ollie North who was Double Tapped and snuffed out of the NRA

The NRA filed for Bankruptcy in Texas.  Chapter 11 bankruptcy is designed to allow companies or organizations to restructure their operations, shed debt, delay lawsuits and emerge as a sustainable enterprise. But it can lead to dissolution or liquidation.

The NRA’s Bankruptcy is blamed on NRA Leaders wasteful, unchecked spending that led the organization to go from a $27.8 million surplus in 2016 to a $36.3 million net deficit in 2018.   Hmmmmm, the Financial disaster of the NRA just happens to coincide with the Trump Administration’s Tax Cut and Spend Economic policies.  Coincidence? ………………. Sarkes Thinks Not.

LaPierre and the Orange Rifleman, Two Peas in an Economic Pod

Thru their Bankruptcy filing, the NRA has committed to changing the errors of their past, and are committed to prudent, financial policies and austere spending practices.  The NRA’s Word is as solid as the Lone Ranger’s Silver Bullet.

Silver Bullets were the Calling Card of the Lone Ranger, an NRA advocate

The disillusion of the NRA, if the Bankruptcy fails, would be a true American tragedy.  Who can forget these Literary Pearls of Wisdom generated by the NRA Leaders, NRA Members and NRA Lackeys:

 “Guns don’t kill People, People kill People.”

“If there was an Armed Guards patrolling the halls at our Schools the results would have been far better.”

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” 

“Mass Murders with semi automatic weapons are just the price of our Freedom” 

“Our Thoughts and Prayers are with the victims of this mass shooting and their families, Thoughts and Prayers.”

“Mass Shooters go to Gun Free Zones, like California, what do you expect”.

Members of the NRA include the Famous and Everyday Mericans

Sarkes appeals to all Americans, Heat Packers or Not.  We cannot let the NRA go 4 Paws Up.  This Great American institution and defender of our God Given and Constitutional Rights, must be spared to continue their Nobel calling to make sure that every American can Pack Heat.

Sarkes asks all Americans to make generous donations to the NRA.  Unlike may calls for donations that you see on TV that ask for your donations in any amount, no matter how small, this is not one of those calls.  Sarkes is asking you to make Uuuuuuuge donations to the NRA.

To that end, Sarkes is asking for you to send donations, $100.00 minimum / no maximum, to Sarkes who will make sure that your donation (minus a reasonable management fee) is sent to the NRA to keep them solvent.

Send your donation to:  Sarkes, Estero, FL, 34135

Sarkes doesn’t need to call 911

Going to Brunch While Black

Executive Summary:

  • This is the 14th in the Award Winning Series of “XXXX” While Black in America”
  • In this Edition, a Black Teen, on his way to Brunch with his Father, was accused, and attacked by a White Women for stealing her Cell Phone

“XXXX” While Black in America” is a series of Sarkes Corner in-depth reporting that documents White Folk accosting Black People who were going about their daily routines in predominantly White neighborhoods and environments, and calling Police to arrest the Black Perps.  In each case, the White Folk claimed that “I am not a Racist”.

Previous editions of “XXXX” While Black in America” documented:

“Baby Sitting While Black”, “Black and Living in a Luxury Condo”, “Gardening While Black”,  “Cashing a Check While Black”, “Wrestling While Black”, “Cell Phone Calling While Black”, “Waiting for AAA While Black”, “Eating Yogurt While Black”, “Taking the SAT While Black”, “Picking up Trash While Black”, “In the Hospital While Black” and “Moving Households While Black”

The in-depth reporting found in the Sarkes Corner “XXXX” While Black in America” series should have secured the Nobel Literature Prize for Sarkes.   But, the Nobel Literature Prize was STOLEN from Sarkes by the Nobel Committee who RIGGED the selection process.  Sarkes claims that the Nobel Literature Prize has been the most Rigged Selection in Nobel History.  Sarkeses cadre of Armenian and Jewish Lawyers have over 50 Law Suits in work to overturn the Nobel Literature Prize selection. Sarkes will not rest until every Legal Nobel Literature Prize vote is counted and every Illegal Nobel Literature Prize vote is purged.

The Nobel Committee awarding the Nobel Prize in Literature to others, including Mealy Mouth Bob Dylan, and not Sarkes was:   Fake News, Alternate Facts, Phony, Failed Take Down, Witch Hunt, Charade, Hoax, Hit Job, a Thousand Stabs, Sham, Scam, Set Up, Treasonous, Literature Assassination, Harassment, Lynching, Triple Hearsay, Crusade, and a Terrible Thing.

Mealy Mouth Bob Dylan won the Nobel Literature Prize over Sarkes, that’s Proof enough of a Rigged and Stolen Selection Process

But Sarkes digresses, back on point.  This latest story involves a White Woman, in the Arlo Hotel in New York City,  who falsely accused the son of Black Jazz Musician, Keyon Harrold, of stealing her Cell Phone.  Harrold, and his 14 year old son Harrold Junior, were on their way to Brunch in the Hotel Restaurant.  

For some unknown reason, the White Woman concluded that Harold Jr. had stolen her Cell Phone and started to verbally attack Harrold Sr. and Harold Jr. demanding that they show her their Cell Phones, believing that Harold Jr.’s Cell Phone was hers.  The White Woman was standing behind an Arlo Hotel Manager telling him;  “Literally get it back for me, please”, The Hotel Manager agreed, asking the Harolds to produce their Cell Phones saying; “I’m trying to settle this situation”.

This Woman naturally assumed that a Black Youth in a Boutique Hotel had stolen her Cell Phone, the Arlo Hotel Manager was caught in a Trick Bag

Harold Sr. then said; ”Are you kidding me? You feel like there’s only one iPhone made in the world?”  

The Women saw that Harold Sr. and Harold Jr. are Black, and naturally drew  the conclusion that they must have stolen her Cell phone

When the Harolds would not allow the Woman to inspect their Cell Phones and started to walk away, the Woman attacked Harold Jr, tackling him and searching for his Cell Phone, shouting; “I’m not letting him walk away with my phone!”

The White Woman could not let the Black Youth escape with her Cell Phone, could she?

Police say the woman has been positively identified and is an out-of-state resident.   Police went on to state that the incident is not being investigated as a bias incident at this time, but NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said that after viewing the video, potential charges may include assault, grand larceny or maybe even attempted robbery.

This is the White Woman who attacked the Young Black Teen, shades of George Zimmerman

THE WOMAN’S CELL PHONE WAS LATER FOUND IN AN UBER AND RETURNED TO THE HOTEL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WHAT

Haven’t we all left our Cell Phones in a Uber at one time or another, and honest mistake Right?

Arlo Hotel management said in a posting that they reached out to Harrold and his son to apologize.  “We’re deeply disheartened about the recent incident of baseless accusation, prejudice, and assault against an innocent guest of Arlo Hotel. No Arlo guest – or any person – should be subject to this kind of behavior.  We want to apologize to Mr. Harrold and his son for this inexcusable experience, and have reached out to them directly to express our sincere regret and to offer help in dealing with the traumatic event.” Let Sarkes interpret: We really stepped in a pile of shit here and will do anything to make this go away.

The Arlo Hotel acted quickly to cover their ass as they prepare for the inevitable legal action

Normally, the Crack, Tier 1 Reporters at Sarkes Corner get the Scoop ahead of all other News Organizations.  In this rare occurrence, CNN was the first news organization to talk to the White Woman Perp by phone.  Sarkeses only explanation is that he is still recovering from Mental Angst from all of the current Election Circus, and that is impacting the Sarkes Corner Staff.

Sarkeses Angst allowed CNN to get the Scoop on The Corner, that should never happen

CNN is not naming the 22 year old White Woman Perp at this time because she said she has concerns for her safety.  Of course, the White Woman Perp disputed Harrold’s account of what happened, even though all of the incident was caught on video.  The White Woman Perp claimed SHE was assaulted during the altercation.

When CNN asked the White Woman Perp whether she’s concerned about possibly facing charges and overall how she is portrayed in the video, she said, “Of course I worry. That’s not who I am. I actually try very hard to make sure that I am always doing the right thing.  I am not a Racist!”

The White Woman Perp is innocent, SHE was attacked, and IS NOT A RACIST!

Sarkes always says that if one has to say that they are not a Racist they probably are. But hey, what does Sarkes know.
