As the spineless, careerist, sedition-cop-murder-supporting Republicans in the Senate continued their conspiracy to subvert Joe Biden’s presidency during the sadly horrifying impeachment trial of a traitorous NY grifter and would-be autocrat, Governor Desantis’ — one of Trump’s many political lapdog toadies — disastrous Online Covid Registration clusterfuck continued today in Florida. 55,000 vaccine appts were made available at 7am in FLA as a whole by Biden’s CDC thru Publix. None available an hour-and-half later in South Florida locations.
I live in a Treasure Coast gated community full of aging, hate-filled, right-wing Republican monstrosities who continue to support the seditionist, lifelong scammer from Queens.
They continue not to wear masks at our HOA’s two pools, ditto when playing golf, bocce, and pickle ball tennis. No doubt some are secure in the knowledge that they had concierge access to the vaccine.
Other sagging-flesh, sun-addled dimwits of their ilk probably are of the racist opinion that COVID is only a “ni**er” disease that affects inferior races.
I did finally get in to make an appointment around 8:40am, but available remaining slots were at counties hundreds of miles away, in the North and West of Florida, by Tampa, Orlando, and Jacksonville — so I bailed out, even though Publix now has my Medicare number and DOB, which I had to provide first, before selecting a county to have my vaccine shots.
Who knows where that info will end up?
This obscene farce is scheduled to be repeated on Friday. Meanwhile the coming availability of vaccines at Winn-Dixie and Walmart and CVS will be extremely limited, with none in my county, and the Walmart web site has already crashed. How can you trust the data security of these amateurish deployments?
Biden needs to come in as soon as possible with FEMA and Federal troops backup and conduct mass vaccines in Florida’s many fairgrounds.
It is obvious — despite appearances to the contrary — that most of the Trump worshipping geezer crowd that live in this shithole state are desperate for the COVID vaccine, so DeSantis in the end would probably back down, but not before making all kinds of stupid Trumpie noise.
At any rate, at 9am, I decided to take my sheppie for a walk. As I drove past a house down the street, a middle aged black man was washing two cars in the driveway, cars that belonged to a couple not much older than him. Across the street, the Betsy Ross flag — a 13-star flag that has been appropriated by various domestic terrorists across the US — was flying parallel to the ground, stuck in the hedge of a septuagenarian asshole who likes to wear a big white cowboy hat.
I kept going, past the Latin Americans who were mowing the St. Augustine grass lawns and clipping the pool’s hedges, past the leathery old hags doing group calisthenics in the pool, and past a whole bunch of whiteys without masks in their ugly carts playing golf — the universal pastime of entitled racists — on links that various inferior races had manicured for them at dawn.
It occurred to me that all these white old men looked exactly like the terrorists you see in the video presented at Trump’s second Senate trial (see above).
All that was missing were the MAGA hats and giant Trump flags.
All was right with whitey’s world.
Trump was going to be given a pass by Senate Republicans. DeSantis was making sure Dade county was not getting any vaccines. Negroes were washing white-owned cars, and Mexicans were doing all the white-owned yardwork on a hot, humid Florida day — and everyone knew their rightful place under the antebellum sun.
But all isn’t going quite whitey’s way, it appears.
Consider this morning’s news
The first of many to come, one hopes, against Trump, and his major enablers in the Senate (particularly the treasonous, ill-mannered boor known as Josh Hawley), Trump appointed members of the Judiciary who allowed these insurrectionists to go freely after their arrest, various Republican corrupt state officials who conspired with Trump to spread THE BIG LIE, starting with FLA, violent right wing supremacists, such as those in Michigan (famous for its costumes party militias wandering around the woods, semi automatic machine guns in hand), Washington state, and elsewhere, and the scumbag billionaire donors or tax evading corporations who helped make this nightmare presidency possible.
Trump and his odious racketeering accomplices must be pursued by legal authorities to the ends of this earth, relentlessly — just like when Israelis hunted Nazi war criminals with no regard for statutes of limitations — until this fascist, Hitlerian movement is permanently eradicated from our land, and all the extreme right wing seditionist perps involved in the violence on Jan 6 are brought to justice.
