- 1:24 PM - August
- So I was
taking a walk to get some exercise (yup, still
on-board, yipee) and decided to walk up to the theater
- ...and it occurred
to me that the thoughts of "alternate timeline" we
felt in 2016 are frightningly true. The alternate 1985
in Back to the Future 2? It's actually
preferable to right now.
- I mean, Biff
is the president. Everything is about HIM. All basic
tenants of government are crumbling. School?
I mean, it hasn't burned down but effectively it
has: we can't go to school.
- But at least in
Biff's city? You could
GO TO THE CASINO. You might need to
side-step some "undesirables" but, shit, I live in LA.
I'm used to city-living and all that comes with it.
- But think about
where we are. And it really is all due to one man.
That has never been true in the history of our
country. It's never ALL the president's fault,
you know? Because every other president at the very
least hired SOME capable people. Trump filled every
position with friends that literally HATED the
position they had and are actively trying to destroy
the service they're a head of. Full privatization.
- He disbanded the
scientists in 2018 that could've warned him about what
was happening in Wuhan... because
THEY WERE IN FUCKING WUHAN. Even
when he got the warnings late he publicly and quite
proudly said it wasn't a big deal. Will all disappear.
At every possible step when he could've helped this
situation he did the ONLY things you could do to
make it worse.
- Stop the testing!
Stop the testing?!?!?!?! What the fuck? No, test
EVERY MOTHERFUCKER AND QUARANTINE THE SICK ONES.
Get factories GOING to produce more. Test test test.
Contact tracing, masks, social distancing....
THIS ISN'T HARD! Bush would've done it...
Nixon would've done it. I mean what on
- He's Biff.
Clearly. We're living a parody of BTTF 2 and we're
used to it! GODDAMN.
- God. Damn. What
happens next? Well, we go camping!
- Yes, thanks to
Arleen Graves, wife of Robert Graves (crying man at
the beginning of Fastest Delorean LOL) we found a spot
and from 8/11 - 8/14 we will be off the grid! We will
be LEAVING THIS FUCKING HOUSE!
- Kids are ecstatic.
Cannot wait. Holy shit.
