All hail (Sir?) Captain Tom Moore

100 laps of the garden and vowing to go on, £18 million and rising for the NHS. He needs a knighthood stat.
Sir Thomas Moore (More).
He may not be a saint but he really is the best of us.

'He has lost his mind': Americans stunned and horrified after Trump tries to 'provoke an uprising'

against Democratic governors

This Friday morning, President Trump fired off a series of tweets — all directed at states with Democratic governors — seemingly endorsing burgeoning protest movements calling for the immediate reopening of state economies as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread.



Trump is trying to provoke an uprising against Democratic governors because putting peoples’ lives at risk is worth the political fight for him.

He is trying to start a civil war. He is that dangerous and the senate repubs sat on their hands during impeachment. He will literally see America destroyed from within to retain power. Despicable.

"Opening up America Again."

Graphic mine

He really does love a shitty bollocks slogan. You cannot fix evil, mendacious, incompetent, death whispering presidents, who put profits over life, who want YOU to sacrifice YOUR life, to save their economy, because re-election is there only priority. No matter how many more will die if states open up before the curve has flattened sufficiently. Those red states that open up or fail to shut down in the face of this pandemic are equally as complicit in the deaths that will result. A death cult, they are.

MIT modelling if quarantines are lifted suggests a million infections in America

What was it Stalin once said... One death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic (sic). He was a narcissistic sociopath too.

Nothing to do but vote blue

They really are racist nasty


Republicans spent 8 years passing around racist depictions of President and Mrs. Obama. All they offer is racism and incitement to violence in hope of distracting from their damage to the country. It's the party of racism. Trump is the arch-racist they will follow off a cliff.

Here we go again... on the bright side though, if they are going here this early in the campaign, they are struggling to find an attack strategy that has real legs.

Oh and they may be playing to their racist nasty base - but everyone else sees this for exactly what this is. And if they think rolling out this shite is going to help them in November as bodies pile up in the streets then they are not just racist nasty, they are also thick.

One GIANT F*cking Circle

This is so true. 100% nailed it. Every single one of the morons out protesting probably spend their free time spitting in women's faces outside clinics because they seriously think their agency is different than the agency of those who do not think just like them.

They think the jokes on us...
