My Google Home/Nest Hub when playing the news played back a summary of this story. Crazy!

This article highlights what I feared last month. My father passed away on March 14th, just shy of his 98th birthday. At the time my sister was adamant of having a memorial for him as soon as possible. It took several days to convince her gathering all his remaining elderly friends together at that time was a bad idea.

Condolences. My dad passed away on February 29th, just shy of his 78th birthday as it happens (March 9th). We decided as a family that I would not travel back to the UK for the funeral. I think they still had "a do" during the first week in March, but I didn't hear of anyone getting sick from attending it. Maybe still a bit too early? My step-mom had my father cremated, instead of giving him the burial he wished, just so that I can travel back for the graveside service some day. They were talking about summer this year, but I still can't imagine being able to travel that freely so soon, never mind wanting to.

Speaking of which, I don't think the GOP has abandoned balanced budget. Their concern for it will come roaring back as soon as the GOP does not hold the white house.

There, I fixed that for you.

That's their fucking pattern - run it up while they're in power and then leave a Democrat (I'm taking that slur back from them) administration holding a big bag of shit to clean up. Which we, suckers that we are, try our best to fix, pissing off the electorate at large and costing us the White House either after a single term or, if we're lucky, the end of the second term.

This same pattern repeated for Clinton, then Obama, and now for Joe Biden during my lifetime as a voter. Maybe for Carter too?

Certainly Carter and Kennedy before him- the curve is amazing: GOP the deficit rises, Dem it falls, etc. Makes you wonder which party really care about deficits? I will not speculate, let the numbers speak for themselves.

In the 21st century the US has adopted a policy of "privatize the profits and socialize the losses". Kind of the worst form of socialism there is in my opinion.

Louisiana church holds services, defying coronavirus stay-at-home order
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-heal ... SKBN21N0UU

The above guy, Tony Spell of Life Tabernacle Church who'd already been arrested for violating orders was on CNN late last night in defiance and went ahead with services again today. Last night, he mentioned buses picking up people from up to 50 miles away and the whole affair lasting 8 hours. Argh!
If you care, skip to 0:48 of https://youtu.be/0FSq8J8Ixek if you want to see the interview. Anyway, he held his Easter in-person service in defiance of the law. The below story mentions that gatherings of no more than 10 people are allowed in that state.

Controversial Louisiana pastor hosts Easter Sunday service for almost 1,500 people
https://nationalpost.com/news/world/con ... 500-people
A revered, yet controversial Louisiana pastor followed through on a ‘vow’ to continue holding public services and hosted an in-person Easter Sunday service, attended by almost 2,000 people.

According to TMZ, Reverend Tony Spell, 42, claimed that 1,345 people attended his Sunday service at the Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The service was also streamed live on Facebook, although assistant ministers and worshippers barred reporters from coming inside.

“Satan and a virus will not stop us,” Spell previously told Reuters. “God will shield us from all harm and sickness. We are not afraid.”
Right now, Louisana per https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/ is at 190 deaths from COVID-19 per 1 million population. That ranks them #3 after NY and NJ. I wonder how much worse it's going to get there?
