Vin Prest on “Life is a Rusty Rollercoaster” wrote this vivid account of his battle with Covid.

If it’s a surprise, I would say that I blew it,

With each future sorrow when we must preview it,
there is no advantage—just more time to rue it.

The vase will still break and we’ll still have to glue it.
The syrup with spill and we’ll have to ungoo it.

Would I accept foresight or merely poo poo it?
When push came to shove, I guess that I would boo it!

Trump’s Actual Accomplishments

Copied from a friend’s Facebook post:
Trump’s actual accomplishments: 1.      Taking a country with 4% of the world’s population and causing 20% of the world’s deaths. 2.      Starting an unwinnable trade war with China without our traditional allies that lost more than 36,000 manufacturing jobs and put a large part of the agricultural sector on welfare. 3.      Gave a large tax cut to the wealthy 4.      Temporarily eliminating the payroll tax, the sole funding support for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and unemployment insurance while saying he will make it permanent if reelected. 5.      Our allies no longer trust us and our enemies no longer fear us. 6.      Nominating a supreme court justice that complained about Chief Justice Roberts vote in favor of Obamacare to end coverage for pre-existing conditions for the insurance industry. 7.      Ignored the Pandemic early and then sold an artificial reality that has destroyed the economy and hundreds of thousands of businesses. 8.      Hurt the credibility of the media 9.      Hurt the credibility of voting and democracy 10.  Killed our allies the Kurds. 11.  Improve the profitability of his own businesses like Mar a logo.
