We had a voice of reason but unfortunately it came with a black skin. Seriously, what we need is for Americans to grow the fuck up.

At the rate we appear to be devolving the dinosaurs are more likely to make a comeback than Americans are to grow up.

Been thinking, maybe trotting GW out is a good thing.

Maybe they will yearn for the good ol days of invading and conquering defenseless countries.  It will trigger nostalgia for a hanging a foreign leader or having them torn apart by a gang.  Obama's drone strikes just didn't adequately replace a B52 strike from DFG, or the smell of napalm in the morning.

Even images of civilians being used for target practice wasn't enough to trigger doubts in the faithful, just a desire to hunt down the dog who released the images.  Oh, sorry, I got a bit carried away.  I miss GW, they were the good ol days.

Thing is, a few weeks ago Spain and Italy were where the UK and France are now. We don’t yet know the top. 1000/million?

It's been a bad 24 hours for Australia. Eighteen new cases, two new deaths nationwide.

On the positive side, almost everybody is doing the right thing, staying home.  No gangs of fools shouting and spitting all over each other. No loonies doing their religious shit in big groups.

No incompetent crooked lying mental cases running the country.

George W. coming across as an elder statesman and voice of reason, that is quite something. Whoa.

But I have a feeling that the US are in dire need of a voice of reason. I also feel that in all that talk of "federal administration" and "states" one very important word is missing: "United".

If you guys can stomach it, now is the time for an actually great (US) american effort and moment in history. If you can not, the (US) american century will go down the toilet, and a lot of countries attached to the USA will go down with you.

I'd rather see you and all others peoples come out of this strong, well and alive.

Good night, and good luck.

The American Century has ended.  It died when tRump had his private chat with Putin, withdrew from the Paris Accords, the TPP, etc. and declared for nationalism at the UN.  The handfuls of dirt were thrown on the casket this spring, when he walked away from the WHO and removed the USofA from any global assistance or international coordination of the pandemic response.

It lasted from 1919 to 2019.  R.I.P.

We had some truly glorious moments, and some terrible failures, but for 100 years we led the world. 

We have ceded serious-minded global leadership to the Chinese and have allowed Putin and his ilk to cry havoc.

We will be missed by many.

It's really just a matter of civilization.

Australia has decent education, free healthcare, no death penalty, and an independent judiciary. We don't allow mass ownership of guns, and most of us are sensibly cynical about religious stuff. We don't think that we were born to rule the world.

America not so much.....

It wasn't until I worked in Europe that understood how overly religious (and gunned) Americans are. The town where I worked at in Italy had 1 church for a population of about 25,000. Italy has a population of about 60M and something like 8.6M guns. The US has a population of 326M and about 393M guns. We are truly fucked in the head bonkers.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estimated_number_of_civilian_guns_per_capita_by_country

BTW, I actually don't know anyone with guns. So the people who have them, have a lot of them. They tend to kill themselves with their guns on a regular basis although we're told it's not fair to count those deaths.

Shit, a couple of days ago, we were lower than Montserrat in that ranking. 

Of course, that means fuck-all when the country you are crowing about having a lower "deaths per million" has had EXACTLY 1 DEATH.

Bloody hell.

That puts the fatality rate at what, 5.7%? Jesus, I thought it was supposed to be something like sub 1%. 

That means the US tip over 100,000 dead when you get to 1,754,000 cases.

I just got a new appreciation on how important mass testing and the urgency behind it is.

Fuck guys, be safe and go for broke now in getting on top of this thing, the US has a history in facing down diversity, don't put up the wrong flag now.

On current rates Russia & Brazil will finish 2nd & 3rd. Russia has certainly got their skates on in the last coupld of days. Putin doesn't want to be too badly outdone by Trump in this race and that idiot Brazillian President Bolsonaro may end up causing the worst damage.  Our Iron Ore exports should be safe though coz soon there won't be ANY mines open in Brazil coz their workers will be in shutdown or worse, dead. But then the Chinese might just export a whole lot of Chinese workers to Brazil to work the mines and get the Fe real cheap!!

The idea of a rogue state let alone states is bewildering. If you don't agree with the general consensus by all means argue your case sure, but if the collective decide to go with option x the debate should be over, you all have to do option x.

That's like the fundamental, it can't work otherwise.   

The only other option is ringfence the clean zones. So maybe Trump gets to build his wall after all,  just not at the borders he was thinking of.

I think that former Presidents of the USA keep the title, unless they are convicted of a felony in which case they lose the title and the right to vote or own a firearm

You know it was.  I'm claiming that the gunners have to have 'kills' to be real men.  Get real trigger happy and shoot civilians, journalists and cameramen.

There appeared to be the same thing in the infantry, "BANG fucking BANG bagged me another raghead!"  Plenty of documented instances of that as there was so little resistance to the invasion of Iraq they had to shoot something!

What movie was that that parodied that example?  Helicopter and the gunner was machine-gunning Vietnamese working in the paddy fields they were flying low over.  A passenger says "I dunno how you can shoot women and children like that".   Gunner says "It's real easy, you just don't have to 'lead' them quite so much, hahaha"

The irony is that’s it’s Trumpaloos waving defeated flags and carrying their gunz who are cheering the demise of their fellow citizens as sacrificing the weak & ensuring our president become frustrated by “his numbers.”

They are figuratively shooting themselves in the foot. The gunz must be unloaded, else we’d have heard of the literal version occurring by now.

Trump’s Name To Be Added To Coronavirus Gravestones

The production of tens of thousands of gravestones in America has been held up after it was decided that Donald Trump’s name should be printed at the bottom of each one.

Department officials said it was unusual for government-issued gravestones to be altered in this way, but they said it was important for victims’ families to know that Mr Trump had played a key role.

“We know how much Donald Trump likes to take credit for everything, so we felt it was important that he was given due credit for this. We’d hate to see the coronavirus crisis go down in history without the President’s important role set in stone, as it were,” a spokesperson said.

The plan was initially to include President Trump’s name in small lettering at the bottom of the gravestone. But upon seeing the design, the President insisted that his name be much larger, and in gold type.

In a statement Mr Trump said he was pleased America was winning the coronavirus.

“America Is The Best At Coronavirus, It’s Incredible!”

“America is winning at coronavirus, it’s incredible,” the President has confirmed.

“We have many, many, many cases of coronavirus. More than China. More than Italy. More than anywhere in the world. We’re doing very, very well. Much better than Europe. We are winning. A lot of people – smart people – are saying it. A very famous epidemiologist, who happens to be a very good friend of mine, is saying it.

“We are a major, major centre for this virus now. I know, because I have been very much involved in this for a long time, believe me.

“The thing about coronavirus – my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart.

“And he said these are big numbers. The media isn’t reporting it. They don’t want to report it. But this is big – much bigger than when Obama was president – and it will get bigger”.

If the Most Honest and Forthright GOP President in History publicly admits that 100k could die in the US, what do the real projections say?

70k today, and we are still seeing 25k new confirmed cases per day and 2k daily fatalities. Hard to distract and deflect from numbers like that, isn’t it, Bullshitters?

I am really disappointed that we have cracked into the 4/million range.  But I can tell you that what we are doing looks like a different universe to what I see happening in the US.

There are people here really toughing it out.  In particular single older people who are going mental.  I am ringing some friends regularly and saying "just ringing to make sure you are still alive."   Few are complaining and although I hate Nationalism, I am proud of what we have achieved.  Gives me hope.

We have some uncooperative louts, the odd house party that gets hammered pretty quickly, but no protests on the streets.   An enforced $1100 fine tends to get results. 

Anyone who hit the streets with a gun on show and being uncooperative would probably be killed very quickly, no tolerance for that shit here.  Storm the Parliament?  Good fucking luck with that!

Despite my mocking, I am sad for the USA, it's truly fucked and I really take little pleasure from that, but something has to give to save the fucking planet.

For a couple of years I thought Trump was the problem but increasingly I am thinking that the problem is actually that there are just so many dumb American voters who eat up this sort of crap. There seems to an almost complete lack of critical thinking skills. Trump is just the symptom of the underlying problem. All you need is to look at the some of the posters on PA.

Little don is an elitist.  The real plan is to kill off everyone who isn't wealthy.

It's much safer to invest in China and Vietnam.

The factory workers there have a long way to come to storm the castles.

Depends who is grading the test.
