I'm From the Government and I'm Here to Help

The Trump Regime is long on grifters, short on expertise.

As we watch the global outbreak of Covid-19, or Coronavirus, remember that the government is not in the hands of competent individuals. This is a huge deal, and it reminds me of how they botched their response to natural disasters all over the country. It reminds me of their inability to staff the government and get people confirmed by the Senate. There is a direct line from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's fervent desire to stack the courts with insolent boobs instead of focusing on the lack of qualified appointees to the Executive Branch.

The Republican Party is terrified of expertise. They know they can't organize a one-car parade but they also know that the media is useless. If it ever gets into the news that the GOP is good for one thing and one thing only--fellating donors--then the jig might, in fact, be up. I'm counting on the fact that a barely informed electorate is going to swerve back and forth between democracy and ruin before this is all said and done.

In the here and now, hold on. Shits going to get weird.

If you're afraid of getting sick, I'm sorry but the only thing you can do is take care of yourself. Wash your hands, avoid going out if you have respiratory issues, and hope for the best. All Trump has to offer is Wilbur Ross and a can of chicken noodle soup.

And no, that's not a joke. It's all they fucking have.

  1. Funny you should mention incompetence in the government. I didn't get my check last month from social security as somehow someone had created wrong information about me. I was said to be in a mental hospital in Rusk, Texas. OMG. It took a week to correct it and at first they wanted me to do all of it, contact the hospital and all, get a letter from it. Finally, I got a free legal service and kindly young agent who called the hospital herself and my check was begun again that day. I am amazed at how that could happen. How they could get false information with all the security in place. There is quite a bit of it in social security. I had to appear in person to correct a living and a mailing address. I thought that was the issue when my check was not deposited but it was this false info that I was in a mental hospital in Texas. I live in Florida. Haven't left in years.
