Let them eat shit

“Be Best?” How about, “Begone?”

So I’m standing in the kitchen after a morning of bad dreams, idly thumbing through the news on my phone as the toaster mutters to itself, when I stumble across these two items back to back on The Washington Post app:

• Stealing to survive: More Americans are shoplifting food as aid runs out during the pandemic. One manager interviewed said he usually doesn’t call the John Laws, but instead tells the offenders not to come back.

“It’s become much harder during the pandemic,” he said. “People will say, ‘I was just hungry.’ And then what do you do?”

• Dismissing health concerns, State Department treats 200 guests to holiday drinks, tours and leftover “Be Best” swag. The hoopla included a tour of the White House holiday decorations, beverages at Blair House, and “Be Best” merch’ from the phenomenally unremarkable anti-bullying initiative by the First Plagiarist, Countess Malaria Dracula.

“It’s time to get rid of the leftovers,” said one official.

Indeed it is. There’s never a guillotine around when you need one. Jan. 20 can’t come soon enough.

    Even the most ardent fan should be offended by this. These four years are going to keep psychologists and social scientists entertained for decades, taught in history books right alongside Rise and Fall, only will take more than six volumes.

    The oligarchy came really close to installing an autocrat in 2016. The problem was they picked an asshole who most people hate. So, democracy has a 4 year stay of execution where nothing will get done because the corrupt congress and state legislatures will stall everything except life support requirements. The federal executive branch is now ruined and corrupt including the DOJ. All that is left fo the oligarchy to do is to corrupt the courts. McConnell got most of that done in the last 4 years. So, in 2024 the democracy dies. End of story. If you expect any leadership in managing this pandemic, you will be disappointed. Pat drops mike and opens bar.
