Normal warning: These posts are not to entertain. They’re to put a pin in my sanity. If you want funny, please head off to reddit.
I have this bizarre technical issue with WordPress where it occasionally eats my post. I may rethink my workflow and move to MarsEdit (which I have) instead of the WordPress site.
The Trumpster hates the Priorities USA “I don’t take responsibility” ad. He’s been sending takedown notices to get it off TV (which infringe on freedom of speech). To do my part for God and Country, here it is. It’s 16 seconds long but it packs a punch.
The unemployment statistics came out at it’s 3.3M in a week. Mnuchin went on CNBC and said this gem:
“I just think these numbers right now are not relevant. Whether they’re bigger or smaller in the short term… the good thing about this bill is, the president is protecting these people.”
This country — and this Administration — lacks both empathy and a moral center. There’s no acknowledgment of the pain this is causing. They somehow have it in their heads this only affects their opponent’s voters. Tanking the economy to own the libs.
This is, without a doubt, the single biggest failure in US History. The enemy is here, in the house, and it’s unclear what we as a nation even cares about.
As for the bill… the bill is garbage. It’s small, it’s stingy, it will help very few small businesses or individuals. We’re patting ourselves on the back for not giving Trump a $500B slush fund to spend on himself, but that’s about all there is in that thing. It’s a conservative bill and it goes nowhere near far enough. It’s a failure, and it hasn’t been signed yet. Ugh.
No sign of this thing abating. We’ve passed the 1000 tracked death mark, and we’re massively undercounting. 70K cases identified, and testing has hardly begun. Still looks like exponential growth. I follow Infection 2020 and we’ve identified 14,000 new cases in the last 24 hours. Sheer madness.
I have this sentiment analysis thing from Grammarly and it tells me I sound sad and disappointed. So there you go. Right from the AI to you. Thank you AI bot, for telling me the obvious. Our robot future, ladies and gentlemen.
I’m still working.
I’m still living in terror.
Time to go play Animal Crossing.
