I dunno, it's been months and given our federal government's complete ineptitude it's hard to blame anyone else. This isn't the first pandemic, it won't be the last. It's less about some wrong decision here or there and more about having a plan that people understand and can follow.
what should the federal government have done to make things much better in Texas and Arizona?

and would those actions have been enforceable in those states ?

A consistent message would have been nice.  Or listening to the experts. But that ship has sailed.

I have no idea why this got politicized in the beginning, and why it got more so as time went on.  And our leaders just inflamed the problem.

We're still learning what this thing is. That's the biggest problem I see. New stuff and advisories come out every week, it seems.

A couple of things are certain to me. Wear a mask in public. Don't congregate inside with large groups. Other than that, I don't know what more I or anyone can do, until we get the vaccine. Much to my surprise, that is actually looking promising - at least for today.

It's not just about the children.  The children are surrounded by high-risk adults 24/7 - family at home, teachers, paraprofessionals, janitors, cafeteria staff, etc.  These mildly-affected carriers (children) are going to ransack the adults on campus and at home, guaranteed.  And instead of a sick teacher out for 1-3 days like with a normal illness, it's 2 weeks of quarantine, so substitute teachers (who trend older in the first place) will run out, and then what?

It's like the upcoming baseball and football seasons will be:  an utter shit-show, no matter what safety measures are put in place.

See my post above. Hard to be consistent when you have no idea what's going on.

Dr. Fauci predicted 2 Million deaths in the USA, right? Even experts can be wrong. Except me, of course. I'm an engineer and we are not wrong.

I think the media goes too far in pretending he's not an idiot
Anybody who actually believe this, may be a pot calling the kettle black.

Pretty spot on if you ask me

I don't think any leader or "expert" has stayed with a consistent message

listening to "experts"  who are the experts and how does anyone confirm that they are correct?
I'm not convinced any consistent message would have made much difference in Texas

even a blind hog finds an acorn every now and then

Fauci is probably very good at his job

he just has a bad habit of getting on talk shows and making some really off the wall statements

then he has to reverse and explain himself and it creates an impression of not really knowing what the hell he is doing

Does anyone here doubt that 100,000 to 200,000 Americans COULD die of COVID?:

I don't see how that statement can be doubted.

He speaks like  scientist, and the media manage to mangle what he clearly says in my view.
