Anyone in a shop-till-you-drop mood?

 

One would think that Confederate Prez Donny, who fancies himself the stable genius and consummate businessman, would be able to grasp onto the economic fundamentals… namely…

RULE #1: Unemployed, destitute grown-ups will not be in a let’s-shop-till-we-drop mood when [1] worried sick that COVID-19 will come home to roost [2] paying for the roof overhead and food on the table proves difficult, AND [3] the Fascist overthrow of America may already be a fait accompli.

That stark deficit of consumer confidence should come as no shocker to that science denier / autocrat who’s totally to blame for COVID-19’s physical and fiscal devastation and the dismantling of democracy.

Obviously, I cannot speak for everyone, but, under such grim circumstances, aside from paying for life’s bare essentials, the only way I’d ever go on a shopping spree is to [1] prepare for the worst by prearranging my own funeral and [2] hope for the best by booking a one way flight to the nearest progressive nation with outstretched, welcoming arms.

Pandemic Pandemonium Poem

 

Pandemic’s same old, new dawn; bad news stories playback
Trump’s truculence and treason; he bleats / Tweets his attack
I can’t resist online retorts; the tooth-for-tooth type payback.

“That bastard burned down our homeland!”, I shout and cry
In fetal ball I next curl up; bawl my eyeballs bloodshot / dry
By dusk, eyes bleary / head weary; dreamland’s worth a try.

Can I dream up exit plan, to someday soon, flee the coop?
Safely free all huddled masses, from our damned time-loop?
Or, awaken again, right back at my poem’s Line-One stoop?

An Overlooked Pandemic Panacea?

 

I sure hope I’m not the only one who’s been theorizing “outside the box”, re coronavirus / COVID-19. Check this out…

What if there are billions of us, who’ve been exposed to this deadly pathogen, yet, have remained absolutely healthy?

Might our plasma now be vastly superior to the convalescent plasma, donated by those who’ve recovered from this disease?

If so, that’d mean the abysmal lack of testing, especially stateside, is not only failing to detect the magnitude of The Problem but it’s also overlooking The Solution.

Headshrinker Head of State

 

Amidst the backdrop of his raging pandemic, man-child Donald J. Trump now fancies himself a shrink… now toys with the notion that not providing K-12, in-person education will prove emotionally detrimental to young people.

While there may be a milligram of truth to such conjecture, here’s what that quack has failed to consider…

Emotional health will prove fleeting for any COVID-19 carrier kid who sickens her / his parents to death, winds up in an orphanage and gets haunted by a lifetime of guilt.

Not Catching that Bug and Buzz

 

Here in Michigan, it’s Primary Election Day. It’s also the first time I won’t be showing up at the polls… i.e., seeing how I had already hand delivered my absentee ballot to City Hall this past Friday.

While I am relieved that I won’t have to show up at my precinct’s… YIKES! NO MASKS REQUIRED!… polling place during a global pandemic… where I’d risk catching that nasty COVID-19 bug…

Nonetheless, I will be missing the physicality of it all… the process of signing in… standing in the fast moving line… being seated at the partitioned voting table… catching that national community buzz.
