If Trump and the Republicans were depending on the summer weather to help their election campaigns against the virus, this article will make that thread of hope go bye bye. Record heat in India. virus exploding. oh my.

Large majority of Americans say country lags in testing availability: POLL

Source: ABC News

As more and more states and communities ease restrictions to jumpstart the reopening process, strong majorities believe the country lacks sufficient testing and are also skeptical about returning to pre-pandemic activities, including sending kids back to school, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday finds.

This poll shows clearly that these states rushing to open up or opening up under court order will not bring back the economy. Democrats almost close to 80% are not willing to participate in day to day activities. Even Republicans even though far less but still over 50% not wanting to proceed back to pre-covid19 activities.

Trump Republicans and his supporters are fighting a losing battle. Only IF or when a vaccine is found the world of May 2019 will never come back. After Trump, pain, mental biological spiritual and physical will be the condition for most of the world billions for many months or many years to come. That reality is starting to sink in on me and it's very sobering.

American Travelers Are About to Be Pariahs in This New World

Source: Daily Beast

One thing is sure: Gone are the days of the American abroad, at least for those hoping to summer in Europe this year. The new models on how to reopen European travel do not have room for the American tourist for the foreseeable future.

Trump has managed to turn the United States into one of the sh*thole countries he so crassly called African Countries. Americans can't even visit Europe now because of his imbecile incompetence in managing the corona virus. Worst. President. EVER!

The dark decade ahead

Source: THE WEEK

The churches all closed. Jets flying overhead. Lunatics banging pots and pans. Masked joggers, masked pizza men, masked dogs awaiting testing; everyone in the park wearing masks; no one masked in a crowd of 30 watching the armored van roll over the discarded grass clippings. A woman beaten by a police officer (off duty, of course) for refusing to wear a mask in a warehouse store. A man spits in the face of a clerk. Alcohol sales increasing by 70 percent or more, and legal dope available for curbside pickup. Standoffs, the stockpiling of weapons, protests and counter-protests with assault rifles in state capitols. The hospitals not overwhelmed but empty and staff let go. Yellow murder tape across merry-go-rounds. Children, neighbors objects of medium-level suspicion at best. Technology not a stopgap or a substitute but a condition for a new conception of bare life. Packages on doorsteps, dropped by unseen and poorly remunerated agents of the world's richest man. Children raped on camera. Domestic assault. A hundred thousand defaults piling up in the portfolio of a single regional bank. Suicide. The end of education. The end of employment. Prophets, of course, everywhere.

I have been telling everyone that I can talk to for yrs that a country where the foundation is 70% consumer spending is a foundation as flimsy as straw and hay. This pandemic has set the foundation on fire. And I like this writer hope his analysis is wrong. Wow!

Source: fivethirtyeight

But, at least on the front end of this crisis, Americans weren’t deciding what to do based on politics. Americans living in red states appear to have taken the crisis plenty seriously; data shows that residents there were staying home well before their governors issued stay-at-home orders.
