The president is supposed to address the nation and declare a state of emergency. He should have done that at least a week ago. Instead he was trying to stop cruise ships from docking in US ports because he didn’t want the number of infected people to go up. That’s the kind of cunt he is.
He gave a speech the other night where he detailed some new policies. The White House immediately followed that speech with corrections to the policies he had announced just minutes before. The ban on air travel to Europe wasn’t across the board like he said it was. It doesn’t effect citizens and permanent residents. Insurance companies did not agree to waive copays for treatment as he said, only for testing. Little things like that.
If he gives another speech what will he get wrong this time? It’s fun to speculate. It’s also fucking terrifying to speculate. This man is so insanely stupid that he can’t even read a speech off of a teleprompter. Worse, he can’t hire staff who will fact check his speeches before he gives them in front of the entire globe.
Fuck that guy. I mean really, just fuck that guy.
We’re still waiting on word for how my step son’s school system is going to respond to this global pandemic. They sent out a statement today saying they were looking into it. You know, they were doing things that the rest of the region did a week ago. Way to stay ahead of the curve there.
Why do we have to be surrounded by such stupidity in a time of crisis?
It’s been a quiet day at work today. I hope it continues. We were told that we have to clean off our desks so that the operations staff can spend the next couple of weeks disinfecting the shit out of the office. I really don’t have that much stuff to hide, but I also don’t have many places to hide it. We were told we could take our desktop computers home with us to ease the telecommuting pains. I normally remote connect to my desktop from home, but it will be nice to not have to do that. I still have to figure out how to setup the VPN, and I will need to…
I connect to the network at work via an Ethernet connection. I just spent some time with the Google to figure out how to tell if my PC can connect to a wifi network…
Looks like I’ll be visiting Best Buy for a USB wifi thingie. Crap.
Telecommuting five days a week might sound like fun on paper, but I am pretty sure that by Tuesday I’m going to be sick of it. Every minor hiccup in the system is going to be magnified a million times based on the fact that I can’t over hear other people talking about it.
I had something else I was going to write about but I got distracted by the wifi thing and now I forget.
In closing: Wash your hands.
