Trump’s weekly Cabinet Bible study leader blames coronavirus on gay people and environmentalists, two of Gawd’s most reviled creations.

Alternet (thanks, Hal)


Quote:
Among the participants in Drollinger’s bible studies are Mike Pompeo, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and Health Secretary Alex Azar (who, along with Carson, are members of the coronavirus task force). Other participants include 52 GOP lawmakers.

I guess when you drain the swamp you need to be vigilant about what sort of creatures move in to fill the void.

Well, amid the demands for relief is a measure from the Democrats to cancel up to thirty-thousand in student debt per borrower.

Quote:
Additionally, if borrowers are more than 31 days delinquent on their federal loans as of March 13, their payments are now suspended. According to ED, more than 3.2 million federal student loans are more than 31 days delinquent. 7.7 million are in default.


Sounds pretty good to me. Those goddamn Democrats!

I can't help but wonder why the Jackass Trump hasn't gotten Covid-19 yet! I think he is still shaking hands!

And you're okay with the concessions they made to get that? Who needs sick leave during a pandemic, eh? Student loans aren't going to eat anybody up, mortgages, rent, car payments, insurance, credit card debt etc. ad infinitum are going to drive the working class into the dirt. But they're just the uneducated masses and they really don't count.

Wonder why Trump is not sick yet? I am just waiting for it. Any day now.

I see Trump is making calls to his Evangelical supporter's groups urging them to fill their churches on Easter and then go back to work. The church part could do a lot of good, in terms of ending Evangelical support for Trump after a bunch of their elderly members die, but the younger ones might have a hard time going back to work. Many business that have shut down won't be anxious to have a mixed bag of the quick and the dead contaminating their workplaces.

We obviously need those antibody tests now! You only get to go back to work if you have a positive antibody test. That way even people still shedding some virus won't be able to infect their coworkers.

On another note: Individual isolation probably does not work unless your family has totally separate apartments. If you have pets moving between rooms, it won't work. This virus is SO contagious it gets transferred on the bottom of your shoes when you walk in common areas. You would have to be wearing full medical hazmat suits and following disinfection procedures when you enter another room to prevent cross infection. One benefit of family quarantine is that members with mild or asymptomatic cases can help care for people who are sicker.

Why are you asking if I am happy with it when we are getting clobbered by rants about Trump winning if the Dems don't take action soon?
Of course I'd be a lot happier with a better bill.
You saw what I put up earlier, asking which one you thought was better.
I'm sure you are familiar with our old pals who like to say NO?
They're beating everyone at the messaging game as usual.

Why act as if I authored the thing?

That's why. It sounds pretty good to you and I/we should be ashamed of ourselves for saying anything bad about Democrats.

Tell you what would be a really good idea, cancel student debt for every doctor and nurse currently working the COVID crisis, and any doctor or nurse about to GO to work on the crisis.
