Me too, but a nice thought.
Of course his parents would have 55" TV, game controls, cooler and bbq set up for Bobby. And a big down comforter so he doesn't get to cold at night and of course his bong will be all cleaned up for him.

Sure is a shame Bobby's grandparents voted all their lives to gut public education and health care so they could buy second homes and golf all day.

It's a clear result of the parenting motto of telling your kids "you can do and be whatever you want to be as long as you're happy! Here's a participation trophy!"

The biggest issue is it's not just kids acting like fools. There's people in every demographic acting foolishly. I've seen people gathered out on the lake ice fishing and partying. Their response: "It's not a big deal".....Sound familiar?

My business has been deemed essential by the government.

I'll be expecting applause at 7pm for my contribution to the fight.

You can simply yell "Thank you Frank E" from your balcony. 

And you're welcome.  I serve proudly.

Oh hey look.  Trump's FDA rushed through an application to grant Gilead exclusive rights to one of the drugs being trialed for treatment of COVID.  This is not a good thing for the world at large.

I really try hard not to present the people  I disagree with politically as being cartoonishly evil but the number of people out there right now arguing that we should be willing to accept thousands of deaths so that damage to a certain section of the economy(and, to be fair, just the financial sector) is contained is really making that hard to do.

It's really baffling to me that the guy is polling with a 60% approval rating on how he is handling COVID-19.
