I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Take a Deep Breath

Finally, my day off or, as tends to be the case, the day I clean the house, do the laundry, and go to the store.  I've already been told I will find the toilet paper aisle in my local Giant stripped clear because there is a respiratory virus sweeping the land.  Maybe fear of catching it is giving everybody the shits.
Yesterday was an odd day at work... the 'odd' people are coming out.  I had an interesting conversation with a nicely dressed woman who claimed to have just come from our Blue Competitor.  One of their ladders had been parked in front of a selection of blinds she had been looking at, and when she asked an associate if she could move it he responded by saying "it's one of our toys, we'll move it."   Well, "it's one of our toys" incensed her to no end.  She told me she thought him very rude, and all I could do was think of how bat-shit crazy this lady sounded. What she really needed to do was just take a deep breath and move on.

One of their toys
And, of course, the Idiot Jerk in the White House spoke from the Oval Office last even regarding the Corona... Virus.  That's how he said it, putting a pause between Corona and Virus.  And yes, I did watch some of it... and then I took a deep breath.
I didn't hear him say really pertinent, no comments about 'flattening the curve,' the reason people are being quarantined.  As of Friday, travel to and from Europe will be restricted because this is a 'foreign threat.'  Someone should have told him the virus is already here.  He wants Congress to waive Personal Income Tax so that even if you're sick, you'll go out to the stores shopping.  (That was a pitch of his re-election in case you didn't know).  Take a deep breath, now.
Because denied the Coronavirus right from the beginning, because he eliminated positions at the CDC, because his administration funneled funding for the CDC to other areas, because the initial test kits were flawed and gave incorrect results, because even now only those who fall within a narrow criteria are getting tested, we have no idea how many people are infected in this country.  But he is going to make sure small businesses can get low interest loans to help them through this crisis.  Take a deep breath, now.
He did say something about companies giving associates with the Virus 2 full weeks of sick time, of course to qualify you will need to provide test results, and... as we know, at this point testing is still fairly limited to the criteria the Idiot Jerk's administration has in place.  Take a deep breath.
Be prepared, he will try and use this to his advantage because he is a duplicitous sack of shit.


  1. IMPOTUS is a useless idiot. The travel ban will do nothing to change the trajectory of the virus because it's ALREADY here and Cheeto's stupidity and desire to placate the markets fucked the country up. Aaand the markets took a serious dive. So there's that.
    I'm hoping they send us to work from home. Seriously. I don't know what they're waiting for.

    P.S. the lady and the ladder: all in a day's work, huh?

    1. The travel ban is because he blames Europe for us getting the virus. He's a Republican, remember, he has to blame someone.

  2. Some people are just crazy, it usually doesn't affect their lives some even get to become President!

    1. This Idiot has always been a failure, but in the past he's used attorney's to cover up that fact.

  3. He is messing this up so badly that i wonder if some of his LESS ignorant followers might jump ship.

  4. the lady who visited your competition is a bitchcunt.

    dump is grasping at short straws as he watches his "beautiful economy" hit the shitter.

    1. It's not just the economy that's going down, his little shit show last night proved how incompetent he really is.
