    I....I...I....I...I.....I. Try thinking of what the situation would be if you were part of a "we". If you had a partner with asthma or a kid with diabetes. And even if you're not part of a personal "we"....you're part of a society. Maybe you've bought into some Ayn Rand/prosperity gospel BS...

    Things I’m sick of tbh.....

    Yup. It's one particular type of people doing most of the complaining. The type of people who have never ever been barred from restaurants, parks, shops, jobs, neighborhoods, etc. Any slight curtailing of their normal lifestyle is an assault on their freedom. For everyone else, it's a day...

    Things I’m sick of tbh.....

    I'm sick of sandwiches, which are the extent of my ability and tolerance for cooking. I'm sick of looking out at my dilapidated deck and overgrown backyard, which I've spent the last 5 years looking at and thinking "I should get around to hiring a contractor to rebuild that deck and have...

    Politics of Why We Are All at Home Right Now

    A large group of armed terrorists stormed the Michigan state capitol building today with the aim of infecting as many people as possible with the ********. They were promptly mowed down by the police. Oh, wait. They're white? Uh....a large group of patriots displaying their second...

    Politics of Why We Are All at Home Right Now

    I remember there was a horrible SNAFU at JFK airport when the travel ban was issued in mid-March. There were only 1-2 days notice given before the ban would take effect, so all the US people who were travelling in Europe frantically got on whatever flight they could. Many of the flights from...

    What is happening at work?

    It looks like the last day we'll be allowed to access our office will be this Friday. I'm trying to figure out if I should take my work desktop home. Yeah, most of my stuff is also on my laptop, but there are some programs on my desktop that I might need. Anyone know how well Remote Desktop...

    It's a bit ironic that the Passion Play got postponed. IIRC, they started doing it in the 1600's to give thanks that their village was spared the worst of a plague. My mom brought me to see it when I was a kid and I'm a bit peeved that I was too young to appreciate the history.

    Some places in NY are recommending the same thing--that families take their relatives back home because there is no way they can prevent this from spreading among people in a nursing home once it gets in there...

    Our Trump-loving governor finally got serious about this and issued a stay at home order for the entire state: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/florida-governor-issues-stay-home-order-after-weeks-resistance-n1174146

    Am I a horrible person for having no sympathy for the people stuck on the Zaandam? My lack of sympathy is exacerbated by the fact that I'm located in the state they're desperately hoping to dock at, so right at ground zero for over 1000 passengers possibly/likely infected to disembark. And...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    He's punting all the responsibility for medical supplying to the individual states. From a press conference today: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-says-states-supply-medical-needs_n_5e739dbcc5b63c3b648c366d Trump insisted that states should take the lead in supplying the badly needed...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    Anyone watching Years and Years? It's on HBO Now and it's a gut punch. I think it originally aired a couple months ago in the UK and the US is just getting it now, so if I've missed an old thread on it, sorry about that! Emma Thompson is amazing in this. I just got to the penultimate, "we...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    Yep. From how things appear to shake out, the Black Hebrew Israelites started this whole thing, and ended up with a big victory for hatred. They are designated as a hate group...

    2018 U.S. Elections - Midterms & More

    Unfortunately, since he's a Senator, his next election is six years from now. So depressed about Governor Trump-Lite and Senator Voldemort being official. I agree that Nelson probably got screwed by the wonky ballot design in Broward county. You'd think this state would have learned from the...

    Hurricane Michael

    I decided to evacuate this morning; I'm now about 100 miles east of Tallahassee. There are so many trees in Tallahassee, power will be out for a long time. (I passed dozens of power line maintainance crews and tree service trucks on the way out, those guys will be making some serious...
