These people are fucking classist ghouls, they have no idea what the fuck is going on in the world whatsoever, their idea of plebes living up to their personal responsibility is fucking googling the latest hot restaurant across town
The idea that ppl might be illterate, computer illiterate, not have access to a computer, be a shift worker w multiple jobs and caregiving responsibilities, not have good transportation options, or IDK not want to stand in line in the cold is anathema to them
The millions of wasted hours of people's lives, the missed infections that could have been stopped, the cold, the worry, when the technology exists—made possible with federal R&D $!—for everyone to have home tests at the ready, all the time.

The Biden ppl really done said "Hmmm, Harris is the president of the Senate....there will be a close vote on voting rights...SCOTUS gutted our vaccine mandate...why not send the VP out to condescend to the poors who are tired/unable to take tests regularly w/o burdens & lines?"

Harris: If you want to get a test, think about that hot new restaurant yo greedy ass wanted to try. Didn't you Google it before you drove your Range Rover across town?
The Republicans have this affect where they tell ppl what they want to hear. They could be lying, but they still do this.

After Bill Clinton (who was a first rate bullshit artist), the Democratic affect is to talk to ppl like they're exasperated to be talking to children
Madame Vice President, 18 percent of people below the federal poverty line have no access to the internet. They cannot just "Go on Google"

Back home in the Guardian for the first time 3 yrs, to read Biden to filth for home tests, masks & leaving the US "worse off than we were under Trump in the most lethal metric: more deaths are taking place under the Democrat than under his predecessor."…
In the essay, I explore why so many ppl are angry with the Biden administration—at times because the administration has pursued a vaccine only approach which, ironically, undermines what vaccines actually do best. I use a "rain jacket analogy" Image
I also do a close reading of & examine "Google it": Just why DO Biden and Harris keep telling ppl to "Google" their way to getting tests, when there weren't any to be found near millions over Christmas & nearly 1 in 5 Americans in poverty have no internet?

Late to this, but

—301 of them (65%!) died of Covid! I think you mean "dying WITH" not "dying OF police duty"

—A "300%" increase is from 6 attacks to 19 attacks—so, an increase of 13 attacks

—Vehicle strikes increased by just 16 (42 to 58), in a yr of record traffic deaths!
This is STRAIGHT UP COPAGANDA! And remember, this is being reported by @abc3340, the ABC affiliate in Tuscaloosa...and ABC news started the "Covid parties" moral panic in 2020 out of...Tuscaloosa! cc @ajbauer @RottenInDenmark
Every number in this report is misleading @abc3340

—Higher than 1930? When 65% of the deaths were from Covid, which was nine DECADES away from human contact in 1930?

—The % increases manipulate very small numeric increases

—And as for traffic deaths...…

I like feeling accomplished abt something I can consistently do in 2 minutes

Wordle 210 4/6

My strategy is choose a word w 2 vowels, check for a match, do another word w any matching letters plus 2 different vowels (or y), then I pretty much can guess the word in the third line. There were only 2 choices when I was at the third, I chose the wrong one, so 4 lines.
I don't try to guess in one or even two; I like sorting out the vowels, then it's a nice zen understanding how combinations are possible with the remaining consonants once the vowels are excluded or included.

1. Obama was unusual in that he wasn't the handpicked candidate of the DNC or its owners. (Having billionaire Penny Pritzker run his fundraising sealed his Wall St bona fides.) Otherwise, Dems choose unelectable VPs (Biden, Kaine, Harris) they hope they can install later.
2. But it's weird they always tend to pick VPs who are just awful retail politicians with no support. Biden ran unsuccessfully for president for decades and called Obama "articulate" and "clean." Harris was polling 5th in her home state. TIM KAINE?!!!?! Who was he???
3. You can see the utter contempt on Harris's face. She didn't win primaries. She hates ppl. She seems put out by @cthagod or journalists. She is not comfortable working a room, unless it's of rich donors who tell her she's brilliant bc they know they'll dictate her policy, they

1. A report from the streets of Chicago, where CPS students are walking out, demanding better conditions to face Covid-19. Riding my bike up Statr St towards the Board of Ed, I already see hundreds of students on their way
2. Students crossings fittingly, at Ida B. Wells Drive Image
3. A really beautiful scene — several hundred students in front of the Board of Ed chanting “Hey hey, ho ho, Lori Lightfoot has got to go”
