It is Easter, after all.

Old thread:

Thank you lionheart!
I’m not knowledgeable enough to post much on these threads but have learned so much, thanks all regular (and occasional) posters.

I've learnt so much too, about the US but also about how democracies can be dismantled and how quickly this can happen.

The Trump presidency is a daily illustration of this process and a warning to us all.

I'm curious to see how many of the 2000 will attend this event on Sunday and whether the calculations on the numbers will be done in a Trump manner.

grin and sad lion

Meanwhile, The Doctor (Fauci) speaks.

Looking forward to SNL on their return.

Thread 100 sad
And in times gone by, there was I thinking Trump's first 100 days would be the end of him.
Thanks lion
We shall overcome!

Thanks Lion

WOW! 100 threads. This needs a celebration. I am personally going to drink gin or wine tonight or both smile

The toast should be "Confusion to the enemy!"

lionheart Sat 11-Apr-20 15:18:53

For sure we need gin gin gin and plenty of it.

100 threads is quite something--I did notice that the academic who wrote a paper about these threads yonks ago has a book coming out.

Should be an interesting read.

lionheart Sat 11-Apr-20 15:25:44

That's a great toast Asking.

AskingQuestionsAllTheTime Sat 11-Apr-20 15:36:41

It is, isn't it. Lois McMaster Bujold uses it in several of her books in the Vorkosigan series.

lionheart Sat 11-Apr-20 15:59:04

I don't know that series but I have read Paladin of Souls.

Love a good toast or a decent curse. smile

Just checking in and giving a tip of the hat to lion for the new thread.

It's just more and more insanity, isn't it? I'd like to say it's hard to believe we've gotten to thread 100, but honestly, it's not. By now we'd have all exploded if we didn't have here to vent.

Gov Newsom is sticking to our 'crisis point' as mid-May and saying we have a long way to go before restrictions get lifted. Scrotus is starting an 'Open the Country Taskforce'. The object of which will, I'm sure, be to gather random facts and conspiracy theories and stitch them together to justify ending lockdowns before it is safe to do so.

I'll stick with Gavin, thank you very much.

And thanks for the new thread brewbrew

Roussette Sat 11-Apr-20 18:45:13

Thanks to the link to that book Lion. Interesting!

BoreOfWhabylon Sat 11-Apr-20 19:48:32

Thank you Lion

I do hope we won't have another 100 Trump threads.

Lweji Sat 11-Apr-20 20:10:21

I hadn't noticed it was 100 already!

That's 99000 posts already!
The most posts ever about any President in the Universe.
Trump should be proud!

lionheart Sat 11-Apr-20 21:13:02

We certainly live in 'interesting times'. smile

Lweji Sat 11-Apr-20 21:45:14

Will GOP be turning?

TheClaws Sun 12-Apr-20 02:45:37

Thanks for no. 100, lion! Hard to believe, but I’m glad we’ve had the fortitude to make it this far.

lionheart Sun 12-Apr-20 03:01:09

I doubt it Lweji. They are in too deep and there have been so many turning points. But this is such uncharted territory nothing is certain.

AskingQuestionsAllTheTime Sun 12-Apr-20 10:14:52

It's horrible to think that the USA now has one-fifth of cv19 deaths worldwide, in a population a quarter the size of those of India and China. It is really shocking that Trump's inertia and folly has caused this to happen.

Lweji Sun 12-Apr-20 11:11:51

Are Trump's briefings harming him?
I hope so, because they're not helping anyone else.
