A Football Stadium of Dead Americans

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Bob Seay for Colorado

One football stadium’s worth of dead Americans.

As of today, COVID-19 has killed over 50,000 people, roughly as many as can fit into the football stadium at Air Force Academy. Think about that the next time you drive down I-25.

Now imagine that instead of dying of a disease, these 50,000+ people were killed by terrorists while attending a football game.

How would you expect the President to respond? With empathy? Compassion? Humanity?

Now imagine that the President had knowledge of a potential terrorist attack for at least eight weeks prior to the event and that he chose to do nothing. Imagine he publicly denied the existence of the threat. Picture him holding rallies, mocking security and terrorism experts who said it was coming.

Repeatedly.

Imagine he knew the attack had begun and told people to go to the game anyway.

Now imagine that after the attack, the President blocked the roads that would have allowed First Responders to assess the damage, treat the wounded, and evacuate people in case there was a second terrorist strike. Imagine that the President mocked First Responders as they tried to save lives. Imagine him saying, “We could still watch the game if these people would just get out of the way!” and encouraging others to also block access to the stadium.

That’s where we are. This is our stadium. And, unfortunately, this is our President.

    From the Hill…

    SICK OF WINNING

    Mark K Rosenberg,

    In 2015 Donald Trump told us if he became president, America would win so much “we’d be sick and tired of winning.” When I first heard this, relayed tongue-in-cheek by a colleague at my workplace, I laughed. We all did. We knew a lot about the world and how things like politics and economics really worked – indeed, we were paid based on this supposition – and we laughed at the absurdity and the bombast and the never-gonna-happen prospect of a Trump presidency. (Indeed, even calling a potential Trump victory a “tail risk” earned me polite chuckles in the staff room; my famous boss told me the chances of a Trump win were “near zero.”) 

    But, of course, it was not funny. Trump won the presidency, and set about notching a series of “wins” that would make even King Pyrrhus proud.

    A good read ..

  2. A chilling metaphor , Bob, and a true one; if an  attack  by a foreign enemy left 50,000 Americans dead, we’d have declared war long ago. But our bumbling narcissist-in-chief struggles only to find the best way for himself and his loyalists to profit from the disaster.

    $rump keeps trying to follow the lead of his mentor and chief creditor, Vladimir Putin. But the virus can’t be bought off or blackmailed, sent to a gulag or assassinated. Putin’s tools aren’t working in Russia, as their under-reported covid numbers keep mounting on that familiar exponential curve.

    Playing cheap political games with ventilators only exposes their venality, and does nothing to slow the rising death toll – in either country.
