Fuck you Mike Pence

"We are hearing ancedotally about some shortages of medical supplies."

Rude Pundit, Honestly, if I saw a grizzly bear raping Donald Trump, I'd give the bear Viagra.

Trump Doesn't Care About What You Have to Lose
It would have been so easy, so unbelievably easy, for Donald Trump to have been the hero when it came to coronavirus. He had his chance, his bullhorn on the wreckage, his "tear down this wall." And it would have been with absolutely minimal effort. With a wave of his hand, the signing of a couple of documents, and a speech to the nation, Trump could have so easily done what was needed to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 before it started its snowballing rampage. He could have quickly hired a pandemic team, as he said he could, then ramped up testing early, used the Defense Production Act to produce what's necessary if the pandemic got out of hand in the U.S., and instituted a national lockdown policy. If he had told his MAGA hordes to stay at home, they would have done it in a heartbeat and thanked him for his wisdom. Fox "news" would have extolled him for his powerful foresight. Much of the country would have looked at Italy and Spain and breathed an enormous sigh of relief that Trump had listened to the scientists and acted.

At so many points along the way to where we are now in this increasingly dire situation, Trump could have acted to mitigate the shit-twister that's about to engulf us. But he didn't. He didn't and now we're sitting here like people in the basement, hearing the horns and alarms, and watching all the idiots in our town run around and tell us it's all fine, come on out. And we're wondering when the shit-twister is gonna hit and knowing that even if it doesn't wipe out our house, it's gonna fuck up a lot of other places and leave it all covered in shit.

Instead of action, we get Trump's entire mobster ethos on steroids: threatening anyone who crosses him and lying about everything in order to make him look good. We know that Trump inflated his worth when it benefited him so he didn't seem like a broke loser to lenders. We know that Trump lied about how much his properties were worth when it came to real estate taxes. We know that Trump lied about his investment in properties that he hadn't invested in at all. We know that Trump lied about how many units were sold at developments. He lied about the quality of his fuckin' steaks. He's a fucking con man, always trying to get people to buy into the grift.

snip

This gets us to the delusional idea that the country will be able to get back to normal on Easter. It's purely marketing. This week, Trump has been on a phone call with "religious leaders" and another with "conservative leaders." You know these fake Christian motherfuckers wanted to have a branding tool, like "America will be resurrected just like Jesus" (which means somehow they'll blame the virus on the Jews). And this also taps into Trump's usual con: his promising of something amazing - a wall built by Mexico, for instance, or an incredible health care plan to replace the Affordable Care Act - that will never happen, but it convinces the dumbasses who believe in him that he's magical and mighty.

Fuck, I hate this motherfucker.

Life Under Quarantine from Ben Gibbered (Death Cab for Cutie)






This was 100% preventable

Thanx Donny.

We did not need a global pandemic response team

We did not need that epidemiologist in China from the CDC watching out for potential global pandemics

We did not need scientists working on a coronavirus vaccine (SARs) that was defunded in 2018

We did not need those W.H.O.'s C-19 test kits

We did not need to know about the late Jan./early Feb. C-19 case in Seattle that was discovered by
Seattle's Dept. of Health and the University of Washington. (Trump's CDC told them not to talk about
their findings and to stop testing.)

We did not need to prepare for C-19 after our intel briefed Trump and company about the threat that
coronavirus was to America and the world.

Health officials confirm 7th coronavirus death in Ohio (Gallipolis, OH)

GALLIPOLIS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) — Health officials in Gallia County reported its first coronavirus case and death Tuesday morning, bringing the statewide death total to at least seven.

The health department did not share any identifying information to protect the victim's family. Everyone who has been in contact with the deceased person has been contacted, the health department shared.


"This is a devastating situation and our thoughts and prayers go out to all those impacted by this tragic passing." said Gallia County Health Department on Facebook. "We assure all of you that a thorough case investigation has been conducted and all relevant parties have been contacted. We thank you for your continued cooperation and support."

Gallipolis, OH is a little river town in S.E. OH on the Ohio ... if it is there then it is everywhere.

24,000 confirmed cases today of C-19 yesterday it was @ about 15,000

C-19 is exploding and I know that not testing asymptomatic has to be done but that will allow the
disease to sweep the nation because people are highly contagious for 2 to 3 weeks prior to starting
to show signs of the disease.

God Damn it none of this had to happen. Thanx Donny and Trump voters.

We should not be going through this C-19 hellscape now. I hope all those Trump voting mother ...

... fuckers are happy now because nothing tastes sweeter than "liberal tears."

Trump fired Obama's Global Pandemic Response Team whose job it was to be on the
look out for exactly what we are going through right now with C-19.

Somebody or somebodies stopped the funding for a coronavirus vaccine (SARs) in 2018.

In late Jan./early Feb. of 2020 the Seattle Dept. of Health and the University of Washington found a case
of C-19 and reported it to the Trump run CDC and they were told to stop testing.

Trump turned down the W.H.O. C-19 test kits which were critically needed. The rumor is that he wanted
to make money by selling his own C-19 test kits.

Trump, Fox, and the republicans told us time after time that C-19 was a hoax. And then did nothing to
prepare America and the world for the coming wave of illness and death.

As per me in my little house in Columbus, OH I am worried sick about my son, his wife, and my
2 1/2 year old grand daughter because they live in a condo where people are stacked on top of each other,
they want to move in with her parents in a larger detached home for the duration but they have to
get her step dad tested for C-19 first ... he worked in hospitals and flew around the country ... but
they can't get him tested, and my elderly mother is sheltering in place in her home and I am trying to
support her and keep her in the house. BTW my little landscape biz (native plants) is kind of D.O.A.
right now. If the virus finds me and I die so be it but I am worried about my family, friends, neighbors,
DU people, and my lab puppy.

God damn those Trump voting mother fuckers .... they helped to keep it close enough so that Russia
could steal the elections for Trump and many other races too. Russ Feingold was @ a 90 to 95%
of winning his race in Wisconsin for the U.S. Senate.

And please don't tell me with a President Hillary Clinton we would not be so far up "Shit's Creek."

God Damn we should not be going through this crap right now.

My Friend, "I believe we know in our hearts that, together we are strong, but divided we are weak."

Please read this when you get a chance.

My Friend, Jennifer Brunner was Ohio's Sec. of State, won the John F Kennedy Profiles in
Courage Award, did a study on the vulnerabilities of electronic voting machines (Everest
Study https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2007/12/14/422072/-), had death threats against
her thanx to Sean Hannity and Fox News (Brunner & Acorn are rigging OH's vote bullshit),
she is now sitting on the bench in OH's 10th district court of appeals, and is running for the
Ohio Supreme court this year. She likes dogs too.


An Essay on the New American Character by Judge Jennifer Brunner

I’ve been meaning to write this for a long time, but it wasn’t until this trial of the American people in the face of a world pandemic that it became urgent to say these words. So please bear with me with an open mind and heart, because I am speaking to each one of you. In this time of pandemic, our “American character” is being tested, molded and shaped. To get through this, each of us must dwell in our heart of hearts on what we stand for and on what is our character as a nation of people.

Perceiving this will help us persevere. Living it we will surely succeed. We are a diverse nation that has always grown in order to remain united. What we do and say in these times is a part of the crucible that is molding a new American character for now and the future. It is this character that will see us through this time and those of the near future.

We, the people of the United States of America, are caught in the crest of a worldwide pandemic not seen in this land for more than 100 years. We must be strong, loving, kind and smart toward one another as we deal with this crisis, because this trial is redeveloping the character of our nation and the lifeblood of our future.

Who are we, the American people, and what are we made of? What is our character? Some would emphasize our national heritage (predominantly white and Christian) to be the fount of all other aspects of this American character. Others would take just one look at our children and young people and acknowledge without a word that the rugged individualism depicted by actor John Wayne in American Western films of more than 50 years ago died with his mortal body. It’s time to put away the leather chaps and spurs of the dusty frontier of the American cowboy after a lusty, saloon-laced gun battle. America has changed.

snip

This is our American character. This is our strength. As people of today’s longest continuing democracy, we are bonded in this character. We are the citizens of a country governed by a rule of law based in human dignity and respect. Knowing who we are strengthens us to help and rely on one another. Our character is us, and our future depends on us being who we are.
