About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

All the other options lead to worse outcomes, what is not to understand?

Now you all know I am not an American, so please help me out here. The more I consider the protests on state houses cause the evil governor dictators are just like Hitler in the minds of the death cult crowd, the more there is something I do not understand.

I get they are right wing, I get that after 50 years of republicans telling them that they should not trust the agencies of governance that they have brought the cheese, I get that they watch an incitement to death media, I get all of that.

What I do not understand is this… How can they purposefully believe that the governors are doing shut downs as an action of bad faith? Do they really believe that these men and women actively want to bring recession, hardship, destitution, dwindling tax revenue as businesses close, because they want to take away the freedom of their citizens? Really? How can that make sense? Do they not understand that they have modelled all possible outcomes from the decisions that they are making, and shutting down is best possible way to ride out the pandemic? That all other options bring about a worse outcome, both in health and in the economy. Do they really believe that these decisions have been made as some nefarious deep state freedom stealing plot? Really? It literally makes no sense.

Good job, Mitch



America is witness to the horror show of a late stage capitalist death cult where vulnerable people cannot get the assistance they need, in a time of pandemic, in the richest country in the world. Moscow Mitch needs to have this hung round his neck and everyone needs to reminded everyday that this is ALL ON THEM.

Seems like the elders are not prepared to die for Trumps death cult

When we look to America, we all know that the government response has been panicked, untrustworthy, incompetent pile of bullshit to Covid-19. I am not going to bore with the list of utter horror, we all know what it is. But here is the thing. This government has to rely on the voters to get back into power, and their instinct is not to save lives but to save the economy, their instinct is to try and convince the elderly and the vulnerable that they should be happy to sacrifice their lives for the republic. Now that is way more freakish than any country should endure in this time. But it is backfiring. Seems like old people don’t like being told they are expendable and new polling shows his support amongst the elders is tanking.

Morning Consult definitely has evidence that seniors are souring on Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, particularly now that he’s fretting so much over the economy: By a nearly 6-to-1 margin, people ages 65 and older say it’s more important for the government to address the spread of coronavirus than it is to focus on economic goals. And as President Donald Trump increasingly signals interest in prioritizing the economy, America’s senior citizens are growing critical of his approach.
Quinnipiac shows seniors approving of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus by a 48/45 margin in early March but disapproving by a 52/45 margin in early April, Quinnipiac also shows Biden’s lead among seniors swelling from 49/46 in March to 54/41 in April

Seems like people enjoy blinking and breathing and are not willing to sacrifice their lives for the Republican Party Trump era death cult. Heh, who would have thought it?

Hey everyone

We have had a splendid April competition. The theme was "bokeh, the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light" and the talent on display is awe inspiring.

Bill Barr threatens legal action to force states to reopen: 'We have to give businesses more freedom

to operate’

Attorney General William Barr will consider legal action to force governors to ease social distancing requirements for their states.

President Donald Trump’s attorney general told talk radio host Hugh Hewitt that extraordinary measures to fight the spread of coronavirus were justified, but Barr argued that at some point they infringed on constitutional rights, reported Bloomberg.

“We have to give businesses more freedom to operate in a way that’s reasonably safe,” Barr said. “To the extent that governors don’t and impinge on either civil rights or on the national commerce — our common market that we have here — then we’ll have to address that.”

Can he do that? Doesn't the constitution get in the way?
