(ABC News)   Betsy DeVos and Mike Pence made the news last week visiting a private school in N. Carolina and applauding their opening. Now 4th graders get a pop up 2 week vacation. Go ahead and guess why   (abcnews.go.com) divider line

farking idiots.  Jesusing away science because it doesn't follow their narrative.

They will absolutely kill children if think they can take a picture that looks cool on a Fox News* graphic.  Five or six years ago, a statement like that would have been laughable hyperbole.  Now...ummm...when we used to joke around with our friends, saying "shiat got real."  Yeah, shiat got real....

I was expecting because Pence and deVos brought the virus in. Now I'm wondering if they'll bring it home.

Gee, all these folks from Washington  keep interacting with the public, and wherever they go, COVID seems to bloom.

Has anyone told Q about this odd coincidence, because I can't help but think that this is a Democrat plot on the scale of Pizzagate. Or, it ought to be.

Also, as for DeVos' plans, there is only one li'l hitch, I mean besides Pence's COVID Mary status.

Wow, almost like forcing kids to go back to school in an attempt to A: more easily force their parents back to work and B: force the country 'back to normal' so the public eye will move away from COVID and Trump might have a chance to steal the election with some deniability was a REALLY FARKING BAD IDEA.

But then, fascists never care about the people they kill or the other lives they ruin. All they care about is keeping, and increasing, their power.
 
2020-08-06 1:50:09 AM  
Pence is being pretty bold about going out and embracing the public despite the pandemic. Did he already have a case of the 'rona that we aren't being told about? Is he getting regular antibody tests to determine how long he can continue gaming his temporary immunity for political gain?

And that farker still won't wear a mask.

Meanwhile, my uncle's COVID symptoms are no longer manageable at home.  He went to the hospital, and my aunt will probably never see him again.

Some find it far fetched, but I'm absolutely, 100% convinced that their lack of response is to try to tank the US so that public assets can be bought for pennies on the dollar - you know, like what happened in Russia in the 90's. If you look at it through that lens, things click together quite cleanly.

Instead of forcing children back to school, we should force them back to work. 1800s child labour will help the economy  and ensure discipline! Those mines aren't going to dig themselves.

The minute we heard first graders were trading masks because they wanted another kid's design, we should have known KIDS DON'T GET THIS and there's no earthly reason they should.

Thank you.  They were taking extreme measures to socially isolate.  My cousins have not seen their parents for four months.  But, his caretaker had it, and now he's probably one of the bodies Trump wants to throw on the altar of his almighty opened economy.

My aunt probably is as well, but she can't get tested at home until she has symptoms, and she won't think of having anyone take her to a test site.

Can't wait for kids. "You picked Billy's nose and then picked your own nose. Congrats, you died of 'Rona. Now you have to sit in a corner for two weeks in the dark to simulate your condition and so we know if you are going to actually die or not. Nobody said death was going to be fun, unless you are on a roller coaster, so I won't be hearing any fuss from you. Because, you know, you're dead."

Should get the message across.

Damn, that's terrible. I dunno, I think I'd risk it if my folks had it bad, just for one last hug. But I'm also fairly young and it doesn't sound like you and your cousins can have the same luck.

You and your family have my thoughts and prayers. Hope they do your uncle some good.

I liked that series a lot as a kid. I'm not going to let people's claims against the author change how much I enjoyed his books back then. Making reading enjoyable helped to foster a lifetime of reading and a desire for knowledge.

One scene that made me think a lot in "On A Pale Horse" was when death arrives to collect the soul of an atheist who has just committed suicide and his soul turns into wisps and disappears because that's how it goes. Was an interesting take on ones intent and purpose in this life.
