Whatever point(s) you're trying to make in that mess, they didn't land. 4,000 Americans are dying every day and you're pretending it's not a big deal, which is astounding - and also one of the gross malfeasances of Trump and all the toadies that are too callous, ignorant, and downright stupid to realize it. Wars were started over 9/11 but you've lost more of your fellow citizens every day for almost two weeks and yet the overall response is apathy. I have a lot of American friends and love the country, but the way you treat each other lately is disgusting. You've gone from being a jewel on the world stage to a laughing stock. In my world, age is not a factor when it comes to the value of a life and, by the way, plenty of young people are dying of it - you don't have to look hard to understand that. We don't yet know about the long term impact but it's leaving some people with issues ranging from fatigue, reduced lung capacity, even mood swings and mental health repercussions. But your social circle is apparently not impacted so I'm sure it's no biggie, bro.  You might feel smart for using a word like 'pogrom' but either your grasp of history is several credits short of an introductory course or you're an anti-semite. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt - you pick your poison, since that seems to be your answer to the state of your once proud nation.  Keep the politics out of it? Sorry. There are places you can go to bro down and pretend that bum rushing your seat of government in the name of protecting the constitution isn't treason and that a global pandemic is slightly more than an inconvenience, but this is not and has never been that place. I can't help it if you don't think your country is burning, but that has been both literally and figuratively true in 2020. Thanks for popping in.
