40 million lost jobs
Riots in the streets
Armed mobs invading state capitols
Country overwhelmed with disease
Losing trade wars
Iran is building nuclear weapons again
Economy in recession
Troops till in Afghanistan
Troops  still in Iraq
Record homelessness

What's so Great about this?

The only thing Republicans seem to know how to do is get in the way. Pandemic on the way? Let's convince people it's a hoax. Riots due to racial tensions? Let's try to take over Twitter. There's real work that needs to be done and Republicans only get in the way.

You are wasting your breath.  None of the above will change the minds of Trump supporters one bit.  His approval rating remains at 43%.  The people who are rioting will still not register to vote.  Put a fork in it, America is done.

The country is literally burning, and those parts of it that aren't have a burning sensation.

All we need is a hurricane with a good storm surge to put it out.

"Nero fiddled while Rome burned" didn't mean he played a violin, it means he farked around.

I don't farking care. All I know about Caligula is that piece of shiat movie I got talked into watching.

For that alone, he deserves to be Walter Matthau's eternal post-chili night chamber pot.

2020-05-30 12:42:51 PM  
Back when the coronavirus first hit, a Trump loving neighbor took down his Trump 2020 flag and replaced it with a blue lives matter flag.  I thought many he had had enough of Trump since his presidency has essentially become America's lost years or even America's dark age.

Then, last week he put up a new Trump 2020 "NO MORE BULLshiat" flag.

Hold up! Nero cared enough to spend enormous amount of his money to help rebuild Rome after the great fire. Don the Con certainly isn't going to do that.

Stop giving Nero a bad name by compairing him to this scumbag.

It is worth noting that the singing while Rome burned thing comes from Suetonius, who was basically the New York Post of the Roman Empire. I mean, Nero was a crap emperor but if he did sing it was probably out of mourning, not indifference.

But at least the one real threat to America, white genocide*, has been handled because we now have a wall and Mexican children are caged.


* obviously not the good kind when white people do it but the really bad kind where white people die off because too many of them are dating sexy latinos and having off white children

Biden inserted the violence against women act into that bill making it the only way Bernie could vote for it.
Biden wrote a bill as racist as any Republican in a time where they were referring to black kids as Superpredators and still stands by that law.

And we don't even get crocodile tears from Trump; hell, he won't even recognize 100,000 dead. But, yeah, both took advantage of a calamity* to grab more power and that's the big lesson from Nero's reign. And it is why when employers ask employees to take pay cuts that makes me very very nervous.

Either is possible. Nero stated well after all.  What is interesting -- Nero had no one except Seneca tell him what to do. Trump doesn't even have that so we could be at 1905 here
