Today is Vanuatuan Constitution Day. Commemorates the signing of the Constitution of Vanuatu on this day in 1979.
You assignment is to find Vanuatu on the globe.
Don’t need to look. Vanuatu, located north of New Caledonia, was formerly known as the New Hebrides Condominium, ruled jointly by Britain and France. Pentecost Island, located within Vanuatu, is considered as the home/origin of land diving, later known as bungee jumping. Hint for your future: one usually can’t fool stamp collectors with geography quizzes.
Now, back to all the political fun and games.
Trumplican© troops are circling the wagons and slamming all the shutters.
The OD is moving to the Whitest house clinic. They cannot control the information flow from Walter Reed.
Follow the kids…Smelly Annes’ daughter is infected.
We wonder about Amys’ brood.
Hasn't Kellyanne's daughter been through enough these past four years? Now this?
Claudia Conway is really pissed. She is speaking out about it. She is 15.
Good for her. I hope she's her father's daughter in every sense of the word.
She seems to have a pretty good handle on media:
Well, Kayleigh's got it too, and that's what will make the news, but my heart goes out to the at-risk scribes and the unknown workers who will go straight to the stat sheet as collateral damage.
Yes, that’s who’s getting my “thoughts and prayers”: the valet, Michael Luna, the unsung maids and cooks and clerks and aides who manage Trump’s affairs in the White House; and the anonymous nurses and laundry workers and janitors who have to manage his stay at Walter Reed. The long-suffering Secret Service Agents who had to accompany the Mango Maniac on his Vanity Voyage yesterday.
Not the narcissist who, if he didn’t cause the pandemic, at least exacerbated it through negligence and prioritizing his power and appearance at the expense of public health.
We are reminded that Kayleigh has a small child at home, as well.
One hopes for the innocent ones.
The Vichy Times wants to know why Biden is being so "cagey" about his health.
For election purposes, the spin goes something like, "President Trump has personal experience dealing with COVID-19, a valuable commodity Sleepy Joe does not have." Whether it works remains to be seen. Americans are, after all, quite stupid.
Donald John Trump on bad acid. Oh joy. According to the Baltimore Sun,
The steroid DJT is taking, dexamethazone is a) typically used for severe covid19 cases, like with damaged lungs, and b)
Like Trump on…well, on steroids.
When Jim Morrison said “Ghosts crowd the child’s fragile eggshell mind” he was talking some strong stuff.
For Dump that might be aspirin. Steroids are obviously well beyond his capacity to deal with even (I assume) with a doctor’s precautions.
“Don’t be afraid of covid” may be his epitaph.
Lacks adequate bovine signalling device.
Yeah…more cowbell…for sure.
Rant re: school COVID testing
I got Conman Cory’s constituent newsletter, in which he promised:
So….100 million rapid tests (promised) for schools to support in-person education.
1. Why should anyone believe this promise? When millions of PPE pieces were promised to nursing homes and hospitals, Trump cronies actively hijacked the PPE, (and presumably profited) by selling or offering it to cronies. People in Gardner’s own NE Colorado area died because COVID spread rapidly in nursing homes and meat and dairy plants. Cory said zip zilch nada. Or rather he bragged about providing tests that never arrived.
2. Where were these rapid tests last March, when they might have made a difference? Schools across the country shut down, families were left in the lurch, educators lost their lives. Cory did zip zilch nada.
3. Right now, most public schools are doing basic COVID prevention: Kids are in “cohorts”, so only half are in class in person at a time, everyone’s temp gets checked when they walk in the building, everyone’s masked, most instruction is online. This works pretty well for the high and middle achievers. The poorest kids, the struggling kids, are by and large not being served. They don’t have good internet or devices or family support to do school remotely. There will be a generational achievement gap that is going to get much larger. What will Cory, or goddess forbid Trump do to provide “catch up” funding and policies for that vast underclass of kids? ( Zip zilch nada).
There are schools in Jeffco that have 8 freaking confirmed cases of COVID right now. Average is about 3. Are they going to get any of these 100 million promised rapid Covid19 tests? What will they get from this administration and their junior Senator? Z….z……n.
/rant over, for now.
Hey out there. I’m new to this site. Anyone out there from eastern Colorado? Looking forward to meeting other rural Coloradoans cuz I’m kinda going crazy out here 😳
Welcome, libdu. I just retired from teaching in northeastern Colorado, and stay in touch with friends from there. There are several frequent posters on here that hail from the great northeast. They’ll probably introduce themselves soon.
Thank you for your response 🌸I feel like it’s time to engage. We’re at a crossroads and it’s all hands on deck. Just looking for support and change
Hey Lib! Welcome.! Looking forward to your contributions. If you’re comfortable in sharing, NE or SE Colorado?
Northeast and if you’re the same Michael Bowman, I may have changed your diaper once, or twice?!
My grandmother use to say, “once a man, twice a child”. Stick with us…you may get to do it again 🤣
It sounds like your grandmother was a legend and there was a wonderful lady I knew named Mar who had a grandson named Michael Bowman. Did you know her
That’s her! Welcome to the CoPols family – I’ll look forward to trying to figure out who you are!
I thought that it was you! Your picture looked familiar, you look like your dad
I can’t believe I probably know you! I really need to talk about this election.
Welcome to Pols, lib. Good to have another voice.
Thank you I’m looking forward to this!
I grew up on a farm in Phillips County my family has owned since 1887. We're going to keep it until we make a profit.
Haha!! I grew up in Yuma county where The Republican River runs through so there’s that!
Since I don’t know your familiarity with the state, I will tell you that the level of animosity and single-mindedness of the Trumplican© party has other strongholds. Mesa County and western Garfield (where I have lived for decades) are as red as it gets.
We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place, but wearing your liberal insignia can cost you. It is why Calamity Jane is popular here. We have a huge representation of gunheads and guys driving around with both an American flag and a confederate battle flag flying on their pickup trucks.
Really, the biggest difference between your home and mine is there are a lot of elevation changes around here.
Strictly speaking, the Republican River was not named after the political party. It was named after the Republican Sioux, a tribe that early explorers wrongly thought had a republican form of government.
You are definitely going to have to attend our next meet-up!
