    The sad part is that this was self-inflicted. Welcome to Bannon’s destruction of the administrative state, the apotheosis of libertarianism.

    This is EXACTLY the result of the dissolution of the “administrative state” that Trump’s principal adviser, Bannon, was calling for, so, to this point, all the Trump voters are very happy with the way things are turning out. They WANT the administrative state to fail – they WANT the federal government to stop trying to block the spread of the “Trump Virus”, they WANT the wholesale sickness and slaughter caused by the ineffectual national response to that same “Trump Virus” – in other words, the idiots, imbeciles and morons are getting EXACTLY what they wanted when they voted for Donald John Trump.

    The question is – are you?

    You might ponder this question while on the way to the polls, this November.

    Reagan’s “Starve the Beast”. Feed all the rich people of the system, ignore the poor who keep it running.

    Lobbyist Grover Norquist is a well-known proponent of the strategy and has famously said, “My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.”

    Republicans have been destroying the US govt since Reagan, stop voting for termites.

    I don’t know about everyone else but I don’t see this as ‘winning.’

    In 2017, the White House’s National Security Council Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense survived the transition intact. Its mission was the same as when the Obama administration established it after the Ebola epidemic of 2014: to do everything possible within the vast powers and resources of the U.S. government to prepare for the next disease outbreak and prevent it from becoming an epidemic or pandemic.One year later, the White House dissolved the office, leaving the country less prepared for pandemics like covid-19.The U.S. government’s slow and inadequate response to the new coronavirus underscores the need for organized, accountable leadership to prepare for and respond to pandemic threats.In a health security crisis, speed is essential. When this new coronavirus emerged, there was no clear White House-led structure to oversee our response, and we lost valuable time. Health systems are struggling to test patients and keep pace with growing caseloads. The specter of rapid community transmission and exponential growth is real and daunting. The job of a White House pandemics office would have been to get ahead: to accelerate the response, empower experts, anticipate failures, and act quickly and transparently to solve problems. It’s impossible to assess the full impact of the 2018 decision to disband the White House office responsible for this work, but it is clear that eliminating the office has contributed to the federal government’s sluggish domestic response. What’s especially concerning about the absence of this office today is that it was originally set up because a previous epidemic made the need for it quite clear.When asked about the slow roll-out of coronavirus tests in the U.S. on March 13, President Trump responded, “I don’t take responsibility at all.” Trump is not just responsible for it. He owns it The Trump Plague is not just his responsibility. It’s his fault.

    We need “Breaking Trump” to slow down the breaking news.

    I couldn’t sleep, thinking about the mysterious Lady-facial-place my wife goes to, the 50-year-old Tex-Mex cafe down on the corner, the barber shops—-all closing, maybe forever. Corporations, meanwhile, get half a trillion dollars with no strings, as long as the wealthy execs kiss the Don’s ass most smoochily.

    We will survive, perhaps even older folks like me that want to do things and go places. We must not give up, even though I often get sarcastic about it. Maybe, juuust maybe, there will be enough survivors to take FDR’s second bill of rights to heart and make it reality.
