This graphic from https://twitter.com/jburnmurdoch is 24 hours old. The information is considered reliable enough to be used by the Financial Times. It mirrors what we’re hearing domestically, that we’ve ‘turned the corner’ in Australia due to early action by the government to effectively close our borders, lock down the economy, and implement strict social distancing measures. Looks like it has worked, so far. More to the point of today’s post, our government is NOT suggesting we’ll be reversing any of those measures any time soon, because we want to avoid the fate that countries like Sweden with slacker measures have experienced. So, WTF America, why are you considering ‘business as usual’ when you’re still registering thousands of new infections per day? What are these moronic protests about? Have you lost your collective minds??
You imbecile: held to account? If you’re demand accountability, then why are you wearing a mask? Why are twenty-five (25) people in this picture hiding their identities? Are you worried about COVID-19 or are you professional agitators? Maybe you’re afraid of being identified if and when some weak Governor ignores the science and yields to Bumbledore’s bullying? Worried about some payback? Scared that you’re wrong? Because if you truly believe the placards then you’d show your face. If you’re just goons for hire paid by #realdonaldtrump’s re-election strategists to create friction in Democratic states, then you can go straight to hell, hopefully after a few days of competing for a ventilator.
I live 16,0000 kilometres away, and this still pisses me off. Americans are dying because Donald trump is an idiot. Full stop. New sentence. Americans are dying because Donald Trump is an idiot. Full stop. New sentence. Americans are dying because Donald Trump is an idiot. Full stop. New sentence. Americans are dying because Donald Trump is an idiot. Full stop. New sentence. Americans are dying because Donald Trump is an idiot. Full stop. New sentence. Americans are dying because Donald Trump is an idiot. Full stop. New sentence. Americans are dying because Donald trump is an idiot. Full stop. You get the idea?
Please America, don’t screw up. In Oz we have a conservative (ie right-wing) government that would LOVE to re-open businesses, get the economy pumping and see everybody back at work. But they won’t do that at any cost. I know many Americans don’t care what happens to the rest of the world, to old people, poor people, black people, Democrat-voting people, but that’s only because few of you know anyone that’s died of the coronavirus. Yet. Give it time. This is not an anti-Trump conspiracy. Please acknowledge that even in your delusional universe there’s a slim chance The Donald is a vain, lying fool who doesn’t care about anybody except himself. Including you. Including plastic-tits Melania, or those goofy-looking inbred children of his who he keeps appointing to position they are 100% unqualified for. You made a heinous error in 2016, and now you reap what you’ve sown. Four years ago, 2.9 million of you were righteously shocked, but that’s the system you have so try harder this time. This fool has to go. But, how many die in the interim?
It’s probaby too late. Your graph is turning. He’ll be gloating soon — “Only 100,000 dead! Fake news wuz sayin’ 150,000! I saved ‘Merica!” The only game in town now is a lottery, and the winner gets nothing; the rest of the world is watching in horror, wondering how many Americans die because your President sat on his tiny hands and did nothing. There’s only one thing you can possibly do to make the destruction of the United States of America complete, and that’s re-elect Donald Trump on November 3rd.
Well played, gentlemen. Looks like you win after all.
