Not for very much longer.

It's hard to know how to feel about articles like this.   Given, true.

But, what has the Con been doing this week, and last week, and what else has he done for the common man lately?  He's apparently not really working, not pushing government leaders to take effective action *against* the pandemic -- not demanding that his toadies in the Senate put together a reasonable relief package, a mask mandate, and a shutdown to stop the surge of cases we're having now.

Actions now will shape the months to come, and he's doing exactly jack s**t, it seems.   Or am I missing something important?

Meanwhile in Calfornia Gov. Newsom done f**ked up big time.

Quote
California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday apologized for what he called “a bad mistake” in attending a birthday party that broke the very rules that he has been preaching to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The lapse came just as California is seeing a surge in coronavirus infections and hospitalizations, and as health officials lobby residents to skip traditional Thanksgiving and holiday gatherings or self-quarantine if they travel travel.

State and local officials have largely blamed recent increases on such social gatherings, and media experts said Newsom’s failure to abide by his own rules may have hurt his credibility just as the state is trying once again to tighten them. Newsom announced Monday that more counties will move more quickly into increased business restrictions as the state tries to head off a further spike in cases.

Newsom said he is concerned that he may have undermined his own message.

That sort of s**t drives me up the f**king wall.  It really does.  We have people who have put their lives on hold and are on the edge of losing everything and/or getting sick from the virus and he acts like this?  I had my way he'd resign today.  No half-hearted apologies.  Get the f**k out before you do even more damage.  I'm down with the restrictions as long as there are firm reminders in place for government officials that this is not an excuse to wipe their butts with the Constitution and treat it like a prison shakedown and they never ask anyone to make sacrifices they aren't willing to make themselves.  Because these restrictions are needed to get the virus under control but he just telegraphed that idiots like Kim Reynolds in Iowa are on the right course in pretending the pandemic doesn't exist.   

If I sound angry it's because I should be in Greece right now.  I had a tour to Greece booked for this week in November that I had to cancel earlier this year because of the pandemic.  Plus I had to give up my law school graduation and the brewery bash for it too.  And he acts like rules are for other people.

 More bulls**t.
And quoting the National Enquirer of NYC (I lived there) doesn't help your argument.
Lying is his game plan.
Tiana works at a nursing home as a RNC. 12 workers tested positive. 6 residents are positive.
Where she used to work here in Lawton,75 (!) residents tested positive, and so did half the staff!
These are towns with less than a population of 2,000!
This is f**king serious, man! And Dr. Atlas is telling old people to go to they're Last Supper!
This f**king Atlas quack is telling Michigan to " Rise Above!" restrictions!
" Be a real He- Man!"



Michigan- where a bunch of Nazis planned on kidnapping the Governor and executing her on film!  Bluesad

So what's going on in Alaska?
 Besides sitting in bars b!tching at the wall mounted TV?

Lately less and less people who live in Pretoria are wearing masks: some stores have even stopped taking people's temperatures but I also believe there've been a lot of complaints about the temperature taking. Some of my colleagues won't submit to having their temperature taken as the people doing it are not medically trained.*

* I was refused entrance to work about two months ago because my temperature was 38 degrees Celsius: I had been sitting in a hot car for almost half an hour and I am on meds.

I honestly think Newsom should offer to resign at this point.  If he's going to give his opponents ammo to say he's a wealthy out of touch jackass who makes rules he has no intention of living by himself then he needs to step down.  We're in a crisis and he's not helping.

I worked for Ted Nugent once. I never will again.

But no. There are bad things going on here. It's not a 'Flordia Man' joke. Serious violent s**t is coming down here. We got these proud bubbas running around with guns. Trying to kidnap the f**king govener.
I'm not gonna leave. This is my house here. Why is it funny? Move back home, see how funny it is.
f**k, man. Where do you live now, so I can insult you on an even playing field?

EDIT: Man, I'm sorry. I know your joking. But s**t is intense here, man. It's hard to joke when your sweetie is a health care worker being mocked by people. Being singled out because she's black.  I live in stupid country. I grew up with theses folks.It's f**king insane. Nobody in town ever bothers us. But at work, Tiana is not part of any group of friends. She was friends with a Mexican girl who moved, and is friends with 2 hillbilly sisters. Nice folks too. Otherwise, her co-workers avoid her.
There are not a lot of black folks around here. Buncha rednecks. Who call black folks "n****rs".

I shoulda been more careful, RC, I'm sorry.    I didn't mean to more than *jokingly* insult.   And we all make fun of Florida -- unless we live there too!      Been since the 1980's since I lived in southern MI (close to Cassopolis), but I know there are real problems.    I live in Washington state now.  Eastern WA has the same basic yahoo potential as southern MI does.  Drive east far enough and you see the same basic mentality, the same type of xenophobia, and anti-science, anti-vaxx too sometimes.    Camping this summer we saw almost no one wearing masks, and they looked crosswise at us because we did.   Crazy.  They were just behind the covid curve then.   They aren't now.

Drive even a little further east and you get to Hayden, Idaho -- heard of that place before, know what they are famous for?     In no way was I trying to say I'm better than you, or that this place is better than my childhood stomping grounds.   I was just riffing on what you wrote, is all.

I was amazed that people are even *allowed* to carry in governmental offices in MI.  I hope that the feds lock those DOMESTIC TERRORISTS up after trying them as such.

But, this is where we are..  Trump and Bannon and their ilk (small, afraid people with money) have emboldened the racism in the small, afraid people who have no money.
It's going to be some going before we get to better place as a country.   

I'm not going anywhere either -- not giving up what my country should be, for what the racists and xenophobes want it to be.

i wish it were better for Tiana.  .. .there's nothing I can say there.  I wish that a racist piece of s**t had not been elected president, to embolden other racist pieces of s**t, to talk to her in that way.   Stay safe, the both of you, please.
