Reports today that not only is Boris in hospital but he is on oxygen...

I wish the man no harm, of course. But one has to ask how that herd immunity concept is working out for him?

By comparison Nixon was just a garden variety Eisenhower Republican with slight persecution complex

All of this and Trump does not drink... which may have been a small mitigation in Nixons rages. Angry drunk be very male pale and stale after all. Trump does not need those two martini's to cause global panic. He can be that insane sober.

It is just a different kind of death cult

Remember when ISIS was rampaging around the middle east and while the right wing were blaming their actions on the fact, they were Muslims, the rest of us knew that they were a bloody horrific murder death cult? Well, turn it on its head a bit and this same shit is happening right now in America. ISIS felt that they owned their population, to do with what they will, it is very clear that the republican party with Trump at the helm believes the exact same thing.

We are witness to Trump being at his very worst when even his very best would be wholly inadequate. The republican party is enabling this ineptitude because at heart they demonstrably believe that the deaths of the ordinary do not matter if it tampers with their power and profit. This has never been as clearly on display as through this crisis. They believe that they have agency over everyone, that they get to decide how much risk is acceptable when people are literally drowning in their lungs. They get to decide not to send ventilators where they are needed. They get to decide that essential public health services should be sacrificed to tax cuts for the rich. They get to charge people for tests / healthcare. They get to offer an incredibly shoddy federal response, which is much cheaper than a co-ordinated response. I could go on, but you get the drift. If anyone wants to tell me that does not make them a death cult, well I have a bridge I can sell them. Death cult indeed.

An essential business you say?

Heh. Not only are they businesses who should pay tax, if they stay open during this crisis they are also death cults...

If I was getting my A level, Degree or Masters results right now I would be so screwed.

Looking at the guidelines that came out today in the UK re how students are going to be awarded their final grades made me feel so sorry for a whole load of kids who would have kicked arse in the final exams but if you score them out of course work, class participation and mock exams they come out at nil point. Through the history of my life of getting the certificates I needed to do well, I used my knowledge sucking brain to great advantage for a month before any exams. Suck in huge amount of knowledge and then spew it out over a fortnight to ensure I got the right result. Never a fan of classrooms and tutorials, this was my method for both my law degree and my MBA. With this new method of grading I would be a bid fat F for fail. My history teacher, when I was doing A levels, who laughed like a drain when I pulled of an A having not really paid attention in class, would have loved being able to give me my final grade! It would not have been an A (shocker).

I feel so sorry for the kids this year. It really is horrid for them.
