Readers tend to fear COVID-19. Most either read on line or are going through books that they bought some years ago.

I can go to the local library with the intend of being there about thirty minutes and be there for three hours... but there is little worth getting COVID-19. Heck, combat is safer than is COVID-19 if one contracts it.

Just got a Facebook blurb. A simple question. If a tree falls in the forest, and everyone saw Trump cutting it down, is it still Obama's fault?

He was at a Ford plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan. As usual I could not long tolerate the vile bosh emanating from his mouth, but I did notice what was missing: a mask.

I pity any Ford workers who had to listen to that stuff. Even more, any Ford workers exposed to any germs from him.

The worst virus circulating today is not SARS-2/COVID-19, but Trumpism. But I guess rather than a mask, you need earplugs to protect yourself and others from it.

Honestly, you cannot blame Trump for all these problems.

1) Pandemic wasn't his fault. Other Western governments were making the same mistakes. Look at Italy or even the UK. And Sweden? Just wow.

2) Riots happened under Obama as well and even Bill Clinton. That is the nature of the U.S.

3) Mass unemployment - that existed under Bush and even Obama. The latest unemployment is down to the quarantine and that is something that is going to hit the West hard. Nothing to do with Trump.

4) Recession is nature to the American and overall global economic system. Unless the system radically changes, nothing you can ultimately do about it.

Honestly I don't get the Trump bashing. He hasn't actually really done anything his predecessors didn't do. Aside from try to take a more hands on approach with North Korea. And he hasn't been as gung ho like Hilary would have been. We'd have had world war 3 if Hilary had been in charge....

President Trump acted as if he could debunk the disease with the mental equivalent of placebos. That obviously failed. He offered his substitute for solid medicine and medical research. He could have pushed masks.    


Quote:2) Riots happened under Obama as well and even Bill Clinton. That is the nature of the U.S.

Those were localized. This time the riots are all over the country.

The sooner that Americans see themselves safe from COVID-19, the sooner the overall economy will start to recover. 

Quote:4) Recession is nature to the American and overall global economic system. Unless the system radically changes, nothing you can ultimately do about it.


But full-blown depression isn't. The first year and a half of the economic meltdown had about the same effects on securities prices and unemployment as did the 2007-2009 meltdown.

He got away with lots of squirrely stuff because his political and journalistic flunkies could dismiss everything. Now they can't. We have pervasive failure in much because the President

(1) can't relate to people on the other side
(2) is fundamentally dishonest
(3) is cruel, corrupt, and stubborn 
(4) ridicules expertise, protocol, and precedent

For a business analogy, lots of people thought that Enron was doing fine until it started to fail. Then the crazy stuff was proved to be fraud. Then I started catching the Freudian slip "Enrob" for Enron.

Trump's faults are obvious.  He watched as the pandemic grew outside the US and did nothing to prepare.  Others were also remiss, but that's hardly a defense against nonfeasance.  You're on somewhat firmer ground with your rioting comment, but Trump still managed to pour fuel on a fire with his comment: "when the looting starts, the shooting starts".  Who does that? On the unemployment front, we see one of the least coordinated responses in the advanced world, and it will make recovery all the harder.  

Trump is pathetic, and he knows it.  It only makes him worse by the day as he tries to cover up the stench.

He calls the state and local governments "weak" while he hides in a bunker from his own people.

Do you believe Trump then is guilty of what I referred to on another thread as the Nero Fiddle Syndrome?

I see him as for himself.  Like many on the right, he seems to value money over people.  He was originally looking to save his popularity by saving the economy, but most people seem to value people.  The governors who backed isolation are popular, while he is not.  That and he is used to solving problems by ignoring them, and thought he could apply that technique to the virus.  However, it is too late to switch to the scientific response without admitting a mistake.  That is not a thing he would do.  Allowing the CDC briefings to resume is about as far as he seems likely to go until the middle of the country's pending lack of isolation disaster hits home.  We will see what he does then.

I think he cares, but he cares about the wrong things.  Nero according to legend didn't care.  Not an exact match, but close enough for Trump to take up fiddle lessons.  By the time the history books are written, that seems like what is likely to get wrote.

That is such a fair comparison. A willfully mis-informed person like Isoko might point out that Trump or any president is not to blame for everything that goes wrong. That's true as far as it goes. But since Trump claimed credit for a good economy that existed up until March 2020, even though he did nothing to bring it about, then his similar do-nothing approach can be blamed if it helps bring about all these disasters. Hung by your own petard, Mr. Drumpf.

Reagan's question in the 1980 debate will likely be applied to Drumpf. And I would like to see Mr. Biden after being sworn in as our next president, turn his head and look at Mr. Drumpf sitting nearby, and say "You're fired!"

The riots may have turned a Lichtman Key against him too.

Which Trump assured us he does not have. I am sure he doesn't. Something else is not also small. I assure you there's no problem there.
