I have this recurring fantasy of a nation wide protest by senior citizens

We can have burn barrel fires where confederate flags and swastikas are burned.
Those of us who can still do it will take a knee during the National Anthem.
And to top it all off, the protest will be completely silent. No one will say a word.

We'll carry signs that say; I helped build this economy for 50 years.
Now pro-lifers want me to die for it.

Question: If Pence and others in WH were exposed to COVID19, shouldn't they all be in quarantine

for 14 days?
Or does the White House have a stockpile of tests stashed away so they can all be tested every day? And, if not, why do they all walk around without masks?

Grim Florida Records Recount Lonely Deaths at Home

Source: New York Times

A 71-year-old woman with nausea who was sent home from the emergency room, even though a doctor wanted to admit her. A 63-year-old nurse who was self-isolating while she waited for results from her coronavirus test. A 77-year-old man who was prescribed antibiotics by a doctor in another state for his fever and dry cough.
All were found unresponsive at home — the nurse on the sofa, where she was found by her husband — their lives claimed by Covid-19 before they ever had a chance to check into the hospital.

The New York Times and other news outlets obtained the descriptions of the deaths — the first such statewide data from anywhere in the country — through a public records request. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which oversees the state Medical Examiners Commission, redacted the 203 pages to keep the descriptions and probable causes of death private.
Florida has some of the strongest laws in the nation protecting the public’s right to view government records. Complete information from medical examiners on deaths has never before been kept secret. But the administration of Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, has not been eager to release some coronavirus records. The state also initially refused to release information on nursing homes where outbreaks occurred.

I know a couple of Right Wingnuts who insist Liberals are being manipulated and incited to Civil War


Mean while, there's the camo wearing, weapon carrying sheep confusing governance with tyranny on the part of the states. They're ready to "defend Democracy" and jail governors while pretending the size of their jockstraps are somehow confirmed by their AK47s, the Russian made weapons that substitute for all their insecurities.

I ask them, what will us yoga mat carrying, Sushi eating liberals do to incite a war? Throw Tofu at the Capitol Building Screamers?

How did things get so crazy so fast?

I've thought about it. He DID drain the swamp like he said he would.

He drained the water, scooped up all the bottom feeders and gave them jobs working for him.

The stable genius with a deadly hunch about Hydroxychloriquine says it's safe for states to reopen


"President Trump on Sunday sought to reassure Americans that it is safe for states to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic, offering support to protesters who have railed against the lockdowns across the country.

“I really believe that you can go to parks, you can go to beaches .?.?. [if] you stay away a certain amount,” Trump said during a Fox News Channel town hall at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington."


So, be sure to stay away from parks and beaches for a 'certain amount', friends. And, just to be sure it's the right amount, maybe we should ask the Coronavirus to post the hours that it will be at the various parks and beaches so we can stay away during those times.

Looking for creative ways to treat the tRump letter that arrived in yesterday's mail.

Any suggestions? What did you do with yours?

67 Days ago Trump said the US was in "very good shape".

He thought $2.5Billion was far more than enough to see us through the pandemic.

"I think that whole situation will start working out. Lot of talent, a lot of brainpower is being put behind it," Trump said.

Looking back, it's not hard to see how things could have been done very differently.
