Dancing with tears in my eyes

It is not nuclear war, but it feels something close to that when you are living at the centre of a pandemic.

Just saying, be safe and hold those that hold your heart fucking close.

Night night from the epicentre of the pandemic in the UK.

Hello my lovely loungers, just a heads up in case you missed it, that...

The April photo contest has been launched in all its splendid glory here:


I fully expect to see you marvellous DUers to do your bit and contribute a picture of your interpretation of the competition. You know I am going to nag you all to find something special to contribute, so you may as will give in gracefully!!!

Also can I ask that even if you don't want to play keep this kicked so others who miss it this time, might see it sometime later. I am not to proud to beg!!!

There is a real truth here...

Brutal but factual. Maybe when all this is over some of those who think we live in a 'post racist world' where 'all blue lives matter', might start looking at things from a different perspective? One can hope.

Because he can. Because, yes, he really is that petty.

Did you see Rachel Maddow last night? with reports that 'according to a source familiar with the matter, as of Wednesday night the Javitz Center had fewer than ten patients and the USNS Comfort had fewer than five patients even as New York City hospitals struggle to keep up with the volume of COVID-19 patients.' That at a federal level they have been instructed not to take Covid-19 patients... I blinked twice as I listened to this. What the hell is the point of sending additional resource to support a city at the centre of a deadly pandemic, and then telling that resource they cannot help with the pandemic?

I cannot help but think this is a mean spirited and deadly two fingers up at the city of his birth, who have so profoundly rejected him. He is a narcissistic sociopath. Oh, and he is incompetent to a breathtaking degree. A very fatal cocktail of toxicity.

Body bags, not medical supplies

The Trump Administration is using the full weight of its authority to purchase body bags, but not medical supplies to help patients and health care workers.

It is true. They really are a death cult. They really do believe that they have agency over life and death and a culling of the expensive older herd to make sure that the economy is OK before November is perfectly splendid!!!! 👀

There is literally a fuckwit in chief tweet for every occasion

Of course, he is a sociopath.

We are not afraid

She goes on to say And so it is pretty obvious to me what's going on. And I think as Gene said, I think it's pretty obvious to most women in the country. It's not like we don't get this. And that's why if Donald Trump is not re-elected, it will be because the women of America have just had enough. We've just had enough.

Indeed. He has a very low opinion of women in general and his complacency is ensuring he is pushing that in the faces of women everywhere, and women are not stupid. Treat one with contempt - treat all with contempt... well apart from those idiot cultists who is happy to put up with his crass misogyny as long as he is 'owning the libs'...
