So, Trump signs the bill. His strategy apparently was to cause maximum chaos while literally doing nothing to improve people’s lives. What a POS.

McConnell threatened him with a wet willie.

Lord of the Flies on Nantucket

https://www.thedailybeast.com/nantucket-one-of-americas-richest-islands-got-pummeled-by-covid-then-the-warring-started?ref=home

 

“The influx alarmed portions of the island population, primarily older individuals who were anxious about catching the virus in a community with limited medical resources. Instead of unifying the community, however, some residents of Nantucket seemed to turn on one another.”

“But as the weather turned cooler, the number of cases slowly began to increase. Then, the Thanksgiving surge hit—the island was clocking dozens of new cases a day. That’s when the accusations started.”

“Against the backdrop, tensions about who was the blame for the Thanksgiving outbreak began to stir. The “rat line” as health officials called it—where people would call in to report others—focused in part on essential workers who “were out driving around in gardening trucks without masks on,” as one local resident who refused to be named, said. Another call was about a woman who had tested positive for the virus after her children came home from college and was in the grocery store without a mask.”

Time to re-visit my favorite Juan Cole trope...

Top Ten differences between White Terrorists and Others
www.juancole.com/2015/11/differences-between-terrorists.html

by Professor Juan Cole/ University of Michigan

November 28, 2015

1. White terrorists are called “gunmen.” What does that even mean? A person with a gun? Wouldn’t that be, like, everyone in the US? Other terrorists are called, “terrorists.”

2. White terrorists are “troubled loners.” Other terrorists are always suspected of being part of a global plot, even when they are obviously troubled loners.

3. Doing a study on the danger of white terrorists at the Department of Homeland Security will get you sidelined by angry white Congressmen. Doing studies on other kinds of terrorists is a guaranteed promotion.

4. The family of a white terrorist is interviewed, weeping as they wonder where he went wrong. The families of other terrorists are almost never interviewed.

5. White terrorists are part of a “fringe.” Other terrorists are apparently mainstream.

6. White terrorists are random events, like tornadoes. Other terrorists are long-running conspiracies.

7. White terrorists are never called “white.” But other terrorists are given ethnic affiliations.

8. Nobody thinks white terrorists are typical of white people. But other terrorists are considered paragons of their societies.

9. White terrorists are alcoholics, addicts or mentally ill. Other terrorists are apparently clean-living and perfectly sane.

 
10. There is nothing you can do about white terrorists. Gun control won’t stop them. No policy you could make, no government program, could possibly have an impact on them. But hundreds of billions of dollars must be spent on police and on the Department of Defense, and on TSA, which must virtually strip search 60 million people a year, to deal with other terrorists.

My apologies to Dennis.  I had thought the Clapton-Van Morrison song he posted was Van's anti-lockdown song.  I hadn't listened to any of his new "freedom" music, because he's such a crazy coot, but there's a point to it.  On one hand, two people I know in my small town, people in their 20s, were diagnosed positive today, and on the other hand the internet is buzzing with rumors that prolonged stay-home and lockdown orders are a long-game plot to kill small businesses and empty the cities of the working poor.

Wheeler.

Where are you, Wheeler?  You are somewhat grudgingly missed.

Wheeler? Maybe he's consifdering this from THE NEW YORK POST of all pappers hahaha!

 

"Sidney Powell is a crazy person. Michael Flynn suggesting martial law is tantamount to treason. It is shameful."

Not that these clowns are any better than Powell...

Give it up, Mr. President — for your sake and the nation's (nypost.com)
