It’s been a week and a half, can I get used to this already? Come on, this is stupid.
My normal-life telecommuting day is Thursday. New episodes of Star Trek Picard come out on Thursdays.
A few minutes ago I was shaving… why? I don’t know. As I was shaving I thought to my idiot self, I’m working from home today so there is a new Star Trek Picard to watch before work. Sweet!
It’s Wednesday. It’s my eighth consecutive telecommuting day. Why the hell can’t I stop thinking every single effing day is Thursday? Brain, would you get on this please? I’m tired of being disappointed over no new Picard every single solitary day! Enough already!
And what the hell am I gonna do when Picard is over? I should have three more weeks of The Walking Dead followed by the premier of the new spin off. Wrong. It’s two more weeks and then nothing. The season finale of The Walking Dead isn’t finished and it won’t be until after this all clears up. It has been delayed indefinitely. The new series is also still in post production so they are pushing that off indefinitely too. Same with (at least some) of the CW DC Comics shows. The final episodes are being delayed until it’s all over. Bloody hell!
That’s all right though, our schmuck of a president say’s all of the restrictions will be lifted by Easter. He said it would be so great to see all of the churches full. When I heard that I realized what his goal was. He doesn’t want to be remembered as a nazi. He wants to be remembered as a great nazi. Therefore he is going to arrange for the death of millions of Americans. He’s going to go down in history as the first great mass murderer of the 21st century. Why should hitler have all the fun, right?
Our president is evil. He’s going out of his way to demonstrate it each and every day.
Okay, so this goofy post about feeling stir crazy got a little heavy right there. It’s okay. It needed to be said.
If you enjoy freaking out and panicking over the state of the world related to COVID-19 then by all means go ahead and read the news. I often start my lunch break by perusing Google News. I look through the headlines of the topics I follow and if something catches my interest I’ll open it up in a new tab and save it for later. Once I’ve gone through the front page I pop on over to those other tabs and start-a-readin’.
In our present global situation though, a quiet little lunchtime activity like that is enough to either make me want to punch everyone on Earth square in the face, or curl up in a ball and cry as the world around me collapses into anarchy. Yeah, both alternatives sound like so much fun.
In one article I read a few minutes ago, the Governor of New York said that things are falling apart much faster than anticipated. He said the Federal Government (I don’t recall which agency) has a stockpile of about 20,000 respirators. New York estimates they need 30,000. The Feds (I think he said FEMA) agreed to send 400. Four Hundred.
Who was it, the Lt Governor of Texas, I think, who yesterday said that grandparents are willing to die in order to save the US economy. Really. I am not kidding you. Some numb nuts actually said that. The nerve… the gall… the stupidity. I said it in a post yesterday and I’ll say it again. These fascists clearly care more about giving money to billionaires than they do about the lives of the people who put them in their offices. Their constituents are worth less to them then their bank balance. If that isn’t evil, then what is?
A few weeks ago I got into a minor online argument with a maga cult member who swore that electing a socialist like Joe Biden… as if Joe Biden had a socialist bone in his body… would burn down the entire country. As of this moment, there is a bill being hammered out in the US Legislature that is by all accounts near completion that will see the US government send checks of $2400 to married couples, with an additional $500 per child. Funny… I don’t hear those maga cult members I was arguing with complaining about socialism now. Now that the high priest of fascism, the cheeto himself has come out in favor of this plan. Is socialism no longer the devil that you swore it was? How does that work? Is it not socialism if a republican does it? Hypocrites.
Okay, I’m done with the news today. I’m going to put my headphones back on and listen to podcasts about Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead. After that, maybe some prog rock. Probably no blues today… my heart can’t really take that right now.
Wash your damn hands.
Trump and his collaborators are talking about ending the stay at home coronavirus response so that people will go back to work and the economy will recover.
If you thought for a second that your life was more important to them than their donors’ money then you are as big a moron as they think you are.
Well I sure hope my fellow Americans enjoyed their 243 years of Democracy because it just ended.
The US Senate just voted to allow the President of the United State to do whatever he pleases, including rigging elections, without having to worry about any consequences.
We are officially a dictatorship now. Let Fascism Reign.
This week has seen the end of American democracy, and now tonight we’re learning that the Red Sox have agreed to trade Mookie Betts to the Dodgers.
Well isn’t that special? Maybe the universe can just come over here and kick me in the balls while it’s at it?
I’m not watching the State of the Union tonight. The Union I used to know is gone. What we used to call the Nazi party and now call the Republican party has taken over and removed the Constitution.
I am wondering one thing though… what’s the over/under on Trump having Pelosi arrested during his sham of a speech?
Aren’t you proud to be an American today (assuming you, dear reader, live in the United States. If not, just roll with it)?
Today’s the day. Today’s the day the Constitution gets used as toilet paper and flushed down the proverbial toilet.
First the Senate refused to hold confirmation for a presidential appointee for the Supreme Court.
Then the people of the United States elected a fascist to the white house.
Now the fascist has been impeached by the House of Representatives and the US Senate is going to rubber stamp the fascist’s desired outcome for the impeachment trial.
The President of the United States of America has been impeached for, among other things, coercing a foreign government into interfering in a Presidential election and the Senate impeachment trial is going to proceed without either side being able to call witnesses.
What do you call a country where the outcome of criminal trials are pre-determined based on political party membership? A dictatorship? A fascist regime? I’m not sure, but you most definitely do not call it a democracy, that is for certain. The rule of law doesn’t apply to you if you are a member of the right political party. The Constitution of the United States of America does not apply to you if you are a member of the right political party.
We should all start rehearsing our nazi salutes, because that’s where we are headed right now. Everyone take your personal copy of the Constitution and throw it in the trash. That is much more polite than what #MidnightMitch McConnell is doing. He took his copy of the Constitution, crumpled it up into a ball, shoved it up his ass, covered it with shit, and then flushed it down the toilet.
God Bless America, let fascism reign.
