Even with a vaccine (which is still only a maybe), 2021 will be another lost year.

This is such bullshit. The school system is only reversing her suspension because it makes them look bad, not because they truly believe they were wrong about it in the first place. The student in question should demand it stay on there. It’s a sign of making good trouble. And, by the way, good for her!

The olds are scared. Lower it to 16, I say.

Is 150,000 a lot?

🖕 Those playing a game know to protect their own and sacrifice the pawns first. The amount of fuck and you can’t be combined fast enough for these puckered anuses.

“These kids have got to get back to school,” Parson told Cox. “They’re at the lowest risk possible. And if they do get COVID-19, which they will — and they will when they go to school — they’re not going to the hospitals. They’re not going to have to sit in doctor’s offices. They’re going to go home and they’re going to get over it.”

Either Republicans leaders don’t understand the science or they don’t give shit. Ha, just kidding. They know the science1. They just know if they say what their constituents want to hear, everyone will be happy. Some will die, of course, but… (see footnote).

  1. Also, they don’t give a shit. [return]

🖕 A designer played a part in this. Boils my blood and reminds me of a zine by my close personal friend, Mike1.

  1. Not a close personal friend :( [return]

While it’s true the amount of Black history I don’t know could make for a… long podcast, this episode of 99% Invisible1 Freedom House Ambulance Service is simply eye opening. It’s 100% worth your time.

  1. I’m Roman Mars. [return]

Ron DeSantis is responsible for a lot of death. And I here I thought Rick Scott was a fuckup.1

  1. Oh he sure as fuck is. [return]

☠️☠️☠️ Fuck the death penalty.

👱🏼‍♀️🏫☠️ If school districts insist on opening without an honest-to-goodness plan in mind that centers around the health of everyone (teachers, paraprofessional, staff, and students), then the entire country’s teachers’ union should go on strike.

What the hell is the point of a union if it can’t, if nothing else, protect you from unsafe working conditions?

Schools are NOT babysitters.

If people wear masks, we’ll be able to make it long enough to deal with the virus. If people quit Facebook, we’ll be able to make it long enough to deal with what’s happened to our democracy.

My daughter is supposed to start college in the fall (2020). All the schools are talking about going back into session (that is, having students back in campus) but I honestly don’t see how it’s going to happen. Same for all schools (not just college).

No vaccine, no in-person learning.* It’s really that simple.

*Shhh… don’t get me started on this distance-learning. It’s more like distance-assignments. I don’t blame the teachers. This virus-caused distribution is just another thing we plop onto the plate of underpaid and over-burdened people.

Turns out 2016 was the most important election.

Dear Satan, how can I be more evil? (Satan whispers in ear.) OK, I’ll do it!

Wouldn’t it be something if hospitals were as prepared to help us as police departments were to beat the shit out of us?

Also look at the military equipment the police have! Who the fuck are they anticipating to come across? If you think the police are here for you and me, I don’t know what to tell you. They are protecting the rich. And we’re paying for it. Medicare for all? Fuck off. Tanks for police? Yep.

Anyone remember the pandemic?

I don’t get it. Landlords are going to kick people out because they can’t pay rent only to leave these apartments empty? Who the hell do they think is going to be able to move in?

We’re going to go from “Teachers should be paid $1 million a day!” to “Tax revenues are down, so the teachers have to go. What else can be done?”

The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

Barbershops are open in Georgia, but elections are cancelled. We really are governed by the worst people.

Any podcast about libraries is my kind of podcast. Well, in this case, an episode about libraries will do. Libraries will always be my favorite place in the world. I can’t wait my local branch to reopen.

An alternative headline could be: More real estate to be available in Platteville, WI in June.

Trump is more afraid of real questions from reporters than he is of the virus.
