    Unemployment finally came through. Although it wasn't the retroactive amount I was hoping for. Still...

    Better than a kick in the nads, right?

    I think you killed Crappity.

    Of course you saw Mike Pence bopping around the Mayo Clinic without a mask. Of course you found yourself (just for a sec?) hoping he gets the virus.

    Did y'all see where the governor of Kentucky, in his daily briefing, ranted for several minutes about the jokester who filed for unemployment benefits under the name Tupac Shakur... Only to have to come back and apologize the next day, because, uh, that's that guy's real name.

    Why is a governor ranting about that during a daily briefing in a time of crisis? Fucking wingnuts, eh? They can't stand that there is such a thing as "unemployment benefits". I'll bet you the governor's fevered imagination is filled with images of "welfare queens" and stereotypes about "lazy niggers".

    He's not a wingnut at all. He's a Democrat and pretty okay, generally.

    His hobby horse is "Stop being dumb assholes while I am trying to help you." Normally this comes in the form of him shaming people who hold parties or stage brick stupid protests.

    He tried to branch out and made a fool of himself. He had the decency to call the guy and apologize then go over it publicly the next day.

    It's less a Wingnut Being a Wingnut story and more a Being Good Is Hard story.

    I was wondering about the "publicly apologizing" part. That just did not compute with my usual expectations.

    Maybe he should run for president.

    I’m not all that confident that Joe can beat Trump.

    The move to take Bernie off the ballot in NY makes it really really fucking hard to want to unite behind the DNC for me.

    The only thing left to do now is nominate a "moderate democrat" nobody with the charisma of a slug for vice-prez! Huzzah for the lesser evil!

    Ah, ok. I assumed he was a wingnut 'cause Kentucky and Tupac. Sure, the fact that he apologized shows that he isn't a wingnut.

    One doesn't need to be a repug to be a wingnut, but it helps.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I don't take very seriously the economists talking about "V-shaped recoveries", you know, we lose millions of jobs overnight but then we just get them back again in 3 months! Yeah, sure.

    We have an economy, both in Canada and the US (but it's worse in the US) where a large proportion of the population is living one minor disaster away from ruin. There is no bouncing back from this quickly. Best case scenario is that even more people are going to be strangled by debt forever, on top of a lot people already being strangled by debt forever. The economy is fucked up and bullshit, and you can't just turn the lights back on and go on as before.

    The next half trillion going to businesses will not have the protections against using it on dividend buybacks and executive bonuses.

    So... we bout to get mugged a-fucking-gain.

    Hey did you know that Elon Musk is a fucking idiot? I've known it for a while now, but it's always good to make sure.

    The concept of fast-tracking a vaccine makes me uneasy.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 1,860
    A lot is probably wrong with Musk, but he’s not an idiot. He just doesn’t care who gets sick and dies as long as it’s not him.

    I call him an idiot because he doesn't seem to know when to zip it.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 1,860
    He probably drinks too much.

    I get the impression he does futuristic designer drugs that only hyper-wealthy people have access to.

    Nah, I reckon he's the kind of guy who spends a small fortune on mediocre weed and then endlessly brags about it.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 1,860
    Futuristic designer drugs? Yes please.
  • LefunesteLefuneste Posts: 5,293
    Hype is half the buzz!
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 1,860
    I'd like to be the judge of that.

    Seen on the net this morning:
    Multiple armed gunmen storm Michigan’s State House …

    Heard some wag the other day refer to these groups as the “Branch Covidians.”
