I read a lot, think a little, and now and then write down a few things.

    Have you heard the president’s briefing in the last two days? Nobody talks unless and until they make their public obsequious kowtow to the nonsense that’s just been spewed, then say everything he said was wrong, then he comes back to say why everything they said was wrong. But of course, only he knows; everybody else is just guessing. Am I right?

    This is playing out more like The Andromeda Strain.

    We have all seen how well he honors his contracts. We’re doomed.

    Under this government, the primary purpose is to protect only the “right” people. /s

    As opposed to presidential agendas; so great, they have to be executive orders, since not even his own party-controlled Congress would pass anything (except the tax relief to the rich) for two, count’em two, years!

    “Damn the torpedoes! Four Bells! Captain McConnell, go ahead! Hannity, full speed!” (With apologies to Rear Admiral David Farragut.)

    We can only hope that’s true. The difference is the donkey keeps telling us how wonderful things will be when we get this virus thingy under control. The good doctor is telling us that’s nice and all well and good, but in the meantime here’s what’s really going on and what we need to do now.

    I agree completely! The president’s staff should really get and keep him off-camera. (Taking away his cell phone would be a good idea as well, but that ship has sailed.) He stutters, repeats himself, keeps telling himself what a “great job” he’s doing (apparently, nobody else will, except those trying to get to the microphone to say what’s really going on), and talks more about his “rising ratings” than the rising death toll.

    I wonder if those millions pillaged from other programs for his “wonderful wall” are being redirected again to fight the current virus threat. Probably not. I’m sure they’re safely isolated offshore somewhere.

    New Game just out; Find the Presidential “April Fool” prank:

    Donald J. Trump, Feb. 26, 2020: “[W]hen you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”

    Donald J. Trump, Mar. 31, 2020: " I knew everything. I knew it could be horrible, and I knew it could maybe be good."
