so let me get this straight about Trump in 2020

He has presided over the worst US response to a disease outbreak since 1918 Spanish Flu

Worst unemployment rate EVER--worse than any time in the Great Depression

Worst GDP drop EVER--worse than any time in the Great Depression

He has citizens marching in the streets in greater numbers because of his lack of seriousness about cops killing unarmed black people and his answer is to ship shady unidentified shock troops to escalate violence

this piece of shit has rightfully been impeached, named as an unindicted co conspirator in criminal trial of his long time personal lawyer

Here's a link to a COVID post I made in March

I mentioned that if only 15% of US got the virus infection, the CPFR would translate to close to 2 million deaths ny end of pandemic


Current CPFR per Johns Hopkins months later is about 3.4 percent and 4 million have tested positive this far. CDC studies indicate the actual infection count may be 10 times higher.


Fortunately, the stay at home orders, mask mandates and other interventions have taken us away from the upper end projections of deaths, but the fact that we are already at 150,000 official deaths (with estimated deaths due to COVID likely quite a bit higher) is appalling especially considering how well other countries have brought this virus under control.

I cannot believe the stupidity and hatefulness of GOP governor of Georgia!!!!!

He is issuing orders NOT allowing cities and counties in Georgia to mandate wearing masks as COVID desthes and cases spike there and in neighboring states.

why can't they recall that miserable shit stack?

Question for Trump at WH press briefing

Mr. President, how does it feel to be so blindingly stupid in your failed response to COVID. And a follow up--can you go fuck yourself?

BIG MISTAKE! -- I just rewatched Obama's final WH Correspondent's Dinner speech

wow. talk about a depressing time warp to when things were sane in America. It dawned on me just how incredibly tired I've become in recent years dealing with Trump shit 24/7....

pre COVID pandemic and over 125,000 Americans dead (it is surreal to even type that)

pre Putin Puppet trying to sell out EU and US interests

pre mass unemployment brought about specifically because of Trump's toxic stupidity

pre-mass incarceration of Latinx families desperate to leave their terrible circumstances only to have children and infants locked in cages and separated from their mothers

pre-Brexit and all the hell that is still yet to unleash

young people today are more knowledgeable than founding fathers

*young people today don't believe slavery of humans is a morally defensible institution

*young people today know more about how human activities have an enormous impact on our planet

*young people today know that slaughtering indigenous people in order to advance white colonialism is wrong

Don't hold our founding fathers on too lofty of a perch. What they did regarding promotion of Democratic self rule and rejection of monarchy was ground breaking--but it birthed a very imperfect nation.

we have a right and an obligation to see those times and those people from a more enlightened perspective.

it is important we recognize those people knew so much less than we do today. It is similar to digging up artifacts from early humans. we know they were less intelligent and extremely primitive. we make allowances for that, but we see them with the clarity of scientific objectivity.

we must listen to the voices chanting for accountability. demanding a reckoning. don't use tradition as a cudgel. examine our nation and the people who led it. focus on how you can better our lives and our institutions.

that is a sign off true patriotism.
