Some people do know something, but if you are watching Fox, you are probably over 65 and will be exposed to information that is incorrect.
The Fed, and State School K12 school curricula (Core) only teaches to the test.
The Federal Department of Education is run by a VERY RICH Trump Appointee Betsy DeVoss who’s “Policy” does NOT care about the student’s power of analysis, the ability to read at grade level, or actual critical thinking skills. The Trump administration wouldn’t want K12 students to construct an educated opinion by themselves. They wouldn’t want educated voters.

Pelosi wants ‘vote by mail’ provisions in next coronavirus bill. Republicans do everything possible to make sure they do NOT allow mail in voting because they will definitely lose the election if people can vote.
If you’re ‘essential’ enough to work through a pandemic, you’re essential enough to be paid a living wage. Employers can do whatever they want and employees are told to consider themselves lucky to even have a job.
On Feb 5, HHS Secretary Azar requested $2 billion to buy respirator masks & other supplies for the national stockpile Trump cut that request by 75% Now a mask shortage is forcing healthcare workers to use bandanas & scarves Florida asked for and got everything
George Orwell 1984 “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day be day and minute by minute. History has stopped.
Strategic National Stockpile is the nation’s largest supply of life-saving pharmaceuticals and medical supplies for use in a public health emergency severe enough to cause local supplies to run out.
When state, local, tribal, and territorial responders request federal assistance to support their response efforts, the stockpile ensures that the right medicines and supplies get to those who need them most during an emergency. Organized for scalable response to a variety of public health threats, this repository contains enough supplies to respond to multiple large-scale emergencies simultaneously
It was changed to:
The Strategic National Stockpile’s role is to supplement state and local supplies during public health emergencies. Many states have products stockpiled, as well. The supplies, medicines, and devices for life-saving care contained in the stockpile can be used as a short-term stopgap buffer when the immediate supply of adequate amounts of these materials may not be immediately available.
Draft Dodger calls himself a a “Wartime President” because he loves role play and acting in his reality TV show that gets ratings.
Trump fires the intelligence community’s inspector general, because he forwarded the whistleblower complaint that ultimately got Trump impeached.
March 9 2020 “Trump on when Americans get expect their lives to get back to normal: “I hope very soon … could have been stopped pretty easily if we had known, if everybody had known about it, a number of months before people started reading about it.” Larry Kudlow says US has contained the coronavirus and the economy is holding up nicely
TRUMP failed on testing, failed on self-quarantining & failed on masks.
OMG the Surgeon General shows you how to make a face mask out of Tshirt as if the government is finally getting up to speed on masks Trump refuses to wear one. He doesn’t have to stay home he can refuse, his family can refuse, they do what ever they want.
Trump didn’t know about it. Who knew? Nobody knew and anyway he didn’t have time to fight COVID19 – he was too busy, he was distracted by the impeachment. So I guess he knew right cause he admits to not paying attention.
The $649 billion the US spent on fossil fuel subsidies was “more than the country’s defense budget & 10 times the federal spending for education.” Why do we subsidize America’s biggest polluters? Because they subsidize America’s most powerful politicians.

$$$$$ HEALTH CARE JOBS – VOTE FOR BERNIE SANDERS AND HIS HEALTH CARE POLICY
My dad’s an ER doctor. He just got off of a conference call. His hospital is cutting his salary – and everyone else’s that works on the front lines – because they’re losing money from non-COVID patients. Cutting medical personnels’ salaries right now. I mean… what the fuck?
NNABA Condemns Anti-Asian Bigotry and Violence During COVID-19 Crisis “The National Native American Bar Association stands with its brothers and sisters of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association in denouncing the sudden rise of anti-Asian sentiment, bigotry and violence in the wake of the COVID-19 health crisis,” said *NNABA President Robert O. Saunooke*.
Trump just withdrew recognition from a tribe he said wasn’t Indian because they didn’t look “Indian” and that he probably was more Indian – to destroy competition from a Chump labeled casino.

This is definitely worth a look if you’re looking for work in these uncertain times.
One of the hard things about this pandemic is many people are either losing
their jobs or having a hard time finding a new one in general. It was suggested that I make one of these during this time.
“The explosive expansion of remote work during this pandemic, amplifying even further our already inescapable dependence on secure, robust digital platforms, underscores how critical it is that we not weaken or discourage basic security mechanisms such as cryptography.” ~ matt blaze
Cobol Your universities and institutions, thought leaders, prominent folks would never be interested in these or speak about these. It’s a huge failure on all fronts IMHO. Neither have we modernized, nor are we prepared to continue to run these legacy tech/systems well.
New Jersey officials vowed Saturday to speed up the processing of unemployment claims despite relying on a 40-year-old computer system that has been overwhelmed by the record number of requests due to the coronavirus crisis.
Labor Commissioner Robert Asaro-Angelo said a plan to increase phone lines, train additional staff to handle claims and provide laptops to workers at home will help ease the crushing amount of claims being sought amid the economic meltdown brought upon by the virus.
“There is nothing I want more than to put your hard-earned benefits into your family budget sooner,” he said at Gov. Phil Murphy’s daily coronavirus briefing.
Recently jobless New Jerseyans have experienced heavy lag times or issues while trying to collect unemployment insurance, partly due to a “clunky” 1980s computer system that the Department of Labor still depends upon to process claims and issue checks.
“We literally have a system that is forty-plus years old,” Murphy said.
“There will be lots of postmortems and one of them on our list will be: how did we get here when we literally need COBOL programmers,” Murphy said of the outdated computer language.

This is like the unrealistic movie trope we all chuckle at in which a few badasses in their 70s have to come out of retirement to save the world because a long-forgotten horror has resurfaced and they’re the only ones who know anything about it. https://t.co/cyHU7JwlMj
Think COBOL is dead? About 95 percent of ATM swipes use COBOL code, Reuters reported in April, and the 58-year-old language even powers 80 percent of in-person transactions. In fact, Reuters calculates that there’s still 220 billion lines of COBOL code currently being used in production today, and that every day, COBOL systems handle $3 trillion in commerce. Back in 2014, the prevalence of COBOL drew some concern from the trade newspaper American Banker.
April 3 2020 Boeing has temporarily closed its helicopter and tiltrotor manufacturing sites in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as part of wider company and national efforts to help contain the coronavirus pandemic. The shutdown of the Ridley Township facility affects the CH/MH-47 Chinook, V-22 Osprey, and MH-139A Grey Wolf production lines, and will last for two weeks from 3 April through to 20 April. Defence and commercial services work and engineering design activities are also performed at the site, and are similarly affected. Source: Boeing
April 3 2020 Covid-19: Disrupted VBIED attack plot targeting hospital indicates weaponisation of virus by far-right extremists in the United State
On 24 March, an individual identified as 36-year-old Timothy R. Wilson, who allegedly plotted to conduct a VBIED attack targeting a hospital, died during an FBI operation in Belton, Missouri.
Posts allegedly written by Wilson and other members of a far-right movement on Telegram demonstrate the literal and rhetorical weaponisation of Covid-19, which has become a force multiplier for neo-Nazi action and rhetoric.
