During my visit, I always saw the same broadcasting company on TV.

How does denying aid for premeditated political reasons, knowing it will cause more people to die, not boost it from negligent homicide to first degree murder?

I was going to post about that unpresidential mob-boss behavior, but this saved me some  leg work.

Me, I'd say impeach him again, but Congress would have to risk their lives to do it. They've got other stuff to deal with. Thing is Michigan voted for him last time by the narrowest of margins. Taking out his personal dislike for the new governor on it's populace is shooting himself in the foot.

The Prison Apprentice will become my favorite TV show. His jumpsuit will compliment his complexion.

What is the appropriate level of firings for both houses of Congress being in recess and not working during this crisis?

That's a perplexing problem.
After all, I held every member of the Bush the Lesser administration as well as every siting member of Congress at the time responsible for The Great Recession, not just for the moronic loan program that fed the housing bubble, but the bumbled response to the crisis.

This is worse.

However, I'd like to see all of these Trump lackeys and collaborators removed as a priority, so I probably can't fire everybody at once. To some degree in this partisan atmosphere it's the leadership rather than the membership which calls the shots, and that includes the calender. Just because Trump won't lead by example on social distancing doesn't mean I came blame Congress for doing it. But at some point, say the day after Easter, they need to be ready to vote. If people can risk their lives here in Wisconsin to do so, so can they. If individuals feel the risk is too great, they should resign and let their governor pick a young replacement. Minimum age for a Representative is 25, 30 for a Senator.

There's a (minor) political riot going on at the moment in my country due to a minister not having reported 'likely' corona deaths in senior nursing -and care centers.
It seems even the elderly often don't display symptoms of a Corona infection. A couple days ago a doctor in a care center decided to test 15 people in a wing where there were already 3 confirmed corona infections. 13 out of 15 tested positive, but were not ill.
There's roughly 70-80,000 people residing in such centers.

Trump is blaming the W.H.O. for the pandemic at today's press conference. He's talking about an investigation into their mishandling of the crisis, and withholding funds. It is my understanding that he has withheld funding from them for the last two years. Since we provide a large share of their funds, I can't help but think that may have hamstrung them.

I just got on hear to say that I do not like yesterday's assertion that he had total authority. Even if he were a king or a dictator, total authority goes hand in hand with total responsibility, which he has recently disavowed.

Now I hear that we have contributed $0 the W.H.O. in the last THREE YEARS on the fact check.

Already we have turned all of our critical industries, all of our material resources, over to these...things...these lumps of silver and paste we call nanorobots. And now we propose to teach them intelligence? What, pray tell, will we do when these little homunculi awaken one day announce that they have no further need for us?
