2020 needs to go stand in the corner for awhile. Really. What? A novel swine flu? Great. Add to that the fact that the WHO says the 'Rona is speeding up and America, Teh Stoopid. Our Stoopid Problem is proving to be worse that our Opioid Problem, and they have similar characteristics. It's hard to slip someone heroin, but it's proving to be terrifyingly easy to slip waaaaay to many Americans a hit of Stoopid. Tennessee . . . Florida . . . Texas . . . Arizona . . . Missouri . . . . Tennessee: they've all been slipped the viral equivalent of a Mickey Finn.
The politics of death and misdirection. It's hard to fathom everything going on in the news with regard to our nation's status among the rising number of Covid-19 victims and our general dissent in taking the precautions to prevent the spread, but the facts are there. From people claiming it's a violation of their constitutional rights, to heresy and an affront to God's design of man, this is America in all her glory. We're losing the battle of logic to an unspecified foe who'll be the demise of our world as we know it unless we join together and get some common sense and unity going quickly. Remember, this is a joint effort for survival, it depends on us, we the people.
Wow! What a front porch! And apologies in advance for the self-indulgence of the first half hour or so. It was one of those days.
White Spokescreep declares COVID Caligula "is not a civilian" and therefor doesn't have to quarantine before entering New Jersey. WTAF? Is he Field Marshall Von Drumpf now? He has real designs on a monarchy. Trump voters display their racism in Pennsylvania and California, to name but a few places. MAGAT Township Councilman in PA smears the commonwealth's Secretary of Health. North Carolina cops discuss slaughtering black people to "set them back four or five generations."
My goodness, gracious, but the loving-kindness of the EVILgelical Krischunz was on display this evening! It takes a special big load of gawd's love to make a Krischun declare that young black men are hanging themselves just to make Trump look bad. God is luv, y'all! Then there're the krischunz who say that being gay is a bigger sin than slavery. Hoo-wee! The peace that passeth ALL understanding! In Valdosta, Georgia, it took four full months for bodycam footage to see the light of day that showed three violent cops of not particularly high intelligence torturing an innocent black man. In Palm Beach County, Florida, the MAGATS came out to protest mask-wearing. It was the usual mendacious drivel from the usual COVIDiot MAGATS. They are domestic bio-terrorists.
Sometimes, this community just won't let me get started. I say one thing and away we go. Oh, well! We eventually got into the heart of a three-hour filibobster. COVID Caligula held another disease-fest, this time in Arizona, with a grift, er, church, that claimed it could eliminate "99.9% of COVID" from the air. Being Evilgelcals, they were, of course, LYING. Hypocrisy was on display with my Filthy Morning Habit(TM) as the sales geniuses decided to air an ad for a viral cesspool in Florida owned by MSNBC's parent company after a week of rightly criticizing Nitwit Nero's CoronaPalooza. Sheesh! Dr. Fauci testified about masks and setting examples and what he expects the virus to do in the near- and long-term. Every word from his mouth was at odds with the blatherings of the Blithering Idiot-in-Chief. Attorney General Bill "Pepe the Frog" Barr tried to rig the sentencing of Roger Stone and the U.S. Attorney in charge filled his shorts out of fear of Julius Geezer. In Portland, Oregon, a murderous white supremacist lashed out at family members of his victims during his sentencing. Walla Walla, Washington has a Nazi cop problem. Womenstanding takes action. Too, also: Godzilla. Because 2020.
Imagine a world where your government would put your life at risk and you couldn't do anything about it. That sounds like a dystopian novel, right? No, it isn't. We are at a crux in our nation and we're failing in keeping our lives in check due to the damage inflicted by the Covid pandemic and the economical impacts that have ensued. Why are we in such a mire you might ask? The answer is in our leadership, the men and women who are elected to serve the people they represent, not doing their jobs and protecting their constituents. Let's have a conversation and find out what remedies we may use to change the tide that's seeming decimating not only our nation, but the world around us.
Morans assemble! Such was the clarion cry Saturday in Tulsa as people stayed away from Clorox Claudius' Coronapalooza in droves. Still, some stalwart Decepticonservatives showed up, about six thousand of them, to listen to a rambling diatribe that was the political equivalent of a lap dance by a syphilitic stripper. Coming home, he looked the part, disheveled, depressed, disheartened. Now, his lick-spittles are torn as to what to do about the fact that they, themselves, may have started a super-spreader event, with no less than eight staffers testing positive for the 'Rona and having been on the ground in Tulsa. Meanwhile, Florida Man don' wanna go t' th' Wally World a-wearin' of no mask. And Florida Man Governor wants to suppress the number of ICU beds being used and counted while his Surgeon General asks nicely that Floridians wear masks. Back here in Almost Level, South Carolina has become our leading cause of COVID-19 transmission in West Virginia.
We are a nation in turmoil. The pandemic rages and testing has been slowed in order to hide the evidence of malfeasance demonstrated by our own governing President. What, if anything, can be done to protect the people and their welfare from misinformation and harm? Hopefully together we can come up with a solution to get us back on track. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
Happy Juneteenth! A little backgrounder on what should be a national holiday, and an observation as to why Juneteenth even exists. Hint: it's a problem Texas has to this day. Also, a primer on white outrage at masking. Then, the FotFP gathering joins in for a powerful discussion.
