A lot of Americans are staying home (the ones who care about others) so people who are doing the necessary things can do them.

Our fake president continues to screw things up.

@IronMan2020 YOU SELFISH CONIVING ARSEHOLE! You think your seat is safe? That we'll forget by '22? FAT FUCKING CHANCE RAND! For all the people who won't get care on time, won't be able to afford their bills, their medicines, their food because YOU DRAGGED YOUR FUCKING HEELS, we'll remind them.

We will remember, and when we come for your seat, you'll never be allowed any position of power over the lives of others EVER AGAIN.

This grocery store is out of CHICKEN! It is one carton of eggs per customer & one carton of milk per customer. I thought Saturday was a nightmare. It is getting worse.

Sunday's episode of Last Week Tonight is available on YouTube for free.

John Oliver clearly, coherently explains social distancing and why it's necessary to save lives. He also debunks misinformation and explains why we need to ignore it. It's important.

Please watch the whole thing, tell others to, and listen. #SaveLives

I just sent junior agent to school, which is closed here as of today. Students are allowed today only to go to the building &wait outside while staff retrieve their belongings from lockers(chromebooks, textbooks, etc) Remote learning prog is in the works& will be rolled out this week. It got me thinking though. I've seen plenty of kids in my area who stay after school, go to the library, or use free WiFi from restaurants. All are now closed. What are we going to do for kids without net access?

In 2016 I imagined a Trump presidency to be absolutely horrific
but this is way beyond my imagination

Remember how Trump ordered the National Security Council's entire global health security unit (including a renowned pandemics expert team) to be shut down in May 2018?

Trump: "I'm a business person, I don't like having thousands of people around when you don't need them. When we need them, we can get them back very quickly."

Well, as it turns out, the administration cannot actually reassemble such a team "very quickly".

I bought some paper table napkins to use as toilet paper. I bought 2 bags of cloths at Home Depot to use in place of paper towels.

I have not seen this grocery store THIS crowded in years! LONG lines.
