ZOMG Democracy!

We’re hitting a record for COVID-19 deaths, unemployment is sky-high, another wave of evictions is hitting, the fascists are still running wild, the police are still mass-murdering Black people, but yeah — let’s impeach Trump — and find some obtuse, other-worldly reason to blame Russia while we’re at it, because what the hell.

Cripes, how the hell does that even work? The guy’s been out of office for nearly a week. If the Senate votes to convict, how do they punish him — revoke his Secret Service protection? Sieze his Federal pension? Prohibit him from running for office again? The “spanking machine”?

MSNBC commentators and guests this past week have been blurting out the word “democracy” so often you could play a drinking game; meanwhile QAnon, Patriot Prayer, the Proud Boys and the rest aren’t just going to pack it in and go home because Trump’s been bounced out of the White House…

Getting up to date in our Thinning Out The Stupid Gene Department: Florida, gung-ho for reopening, beaches crowded as hell, has set a new one-day record for new COVID19 cases; even as one state after another begins mandating mask use, the governor of Georgia has stuck a blow for freedom by barring municipalities from mandating masks and, elsewhere in the Covidiot Universe, the co-founder of ReOpen Maryland — one of many groups standing up for our Constitutional right to manicures and ice cream — tested positive for COVID19 just a couple of weeks ago.

But as it’s often said — Freedom Isn’t Free.

Jazz Hands

JEEEzus H.W. motherfucking CHRIST. Motherfuckers came right out and said it — “We are flying blind”. In the USA right now, they’ve tested maybe 11,000 people nationwide, a bunch of which are members of a goddamn professional basketball team.

In China, they built a goddamn hospital in six days to deal with this shit. SIX MOTHERFUCKING DAYS. In the US, we’re lucky to have tested 11,000 people NATIONWIDE; meanwhile, in Korea, they’re testing 20,000 people per day. Got that, boys’n'girls? TWENTY THOUSAND PEOPLE PER MOTHERFUCKING DAY.

“Flying blind”, they tell us — and all they’ve got to offer us is “social isolation”, elbow-bumping and “jazz hands”. This goddamn country doesn’t have a clue how to deal with a problem if we can’t fucking BOMB it.

Shit, man — shove your jazz hands up your jazz ass.
