So if you didn’t catch this mornings shitshow, it went basically like this:
The CDC put out its official recommendations and requirements states should meet before reopening schools.
Trump went to twitter, shitted on the CDC recommendations, demanding that k-12 schools fully open up in the fall. He threatened to cut federal funding if they do not.
Then the coronavirus task force held a press conference, minus Fauci, because he’s on the President’s shit list.
Betsy Devos said she really really really wants kids back in school. She does not know how to do this, offered no suggestions. Just that they need to open, and leaves it up to local officials to figure it out.
Vice President Pence said children are resilient. Basically made out of cartilage with healthy lungs. They probably won’t get sick, so we shouldn’t worry about them. There is also no disagreement between the CDC and Trump. Trump wants schools to open, and just doesn’t want the CDC’s guidelines to be the reason for schools not opening?
Yes, he actually said he doesn’t want states to keep their schools closed just because their own CDC says it is not safe to open.
So the VP says, don’t worry, let’s bring up the Director of the CDC to clarify. -And I could‘ve sworn I heard this guy gulp off camera.
But the director of the CDC comes up and says he also wants schools to open safely. He said he likes his job and wants to keep it, therefore, he is also in full agreement with Trump, despite the guidelines they released hours before.
So then Dr. Birx comes on and says half the country has seen a surge of new cases. The country is worse off than it was back at the start of all this. She said they should return to phase 1 and start all over.
Now, an astute reader may wonder how do half the states return to phase 1, and still expect to open by fall? Good question. ..... And while you were thinking about it, Birx tries to leave the podium.
But before she gets away, Pence stops her, suggests she ‘talk about that other thing about the children’. She hesitates, then agrees.
She comes back up to the mic, says most children probably won’t die. Maybe 0.02%. And usually the ones who die were already sick, so you parents at home may want to keep an eye on them. Oh- and we have virtually no data on how transmissible the virus is in children because we’ve barely tested any of them, but let me get out of your hair.
Pence comes back and says, see, we’re good here.
So while all that is going Cuomo is holding his own press conference.
He says I don’t even give a shit what Trump is saying. It’s not worth responding to the clown. States control school openings, and we will do it as safely as possible, end of discussion.
Other states blew off our warnings, and now they are paying the price. You want to fix your states? Pull your heads out of your asses and follow our example.
And Fauci has gone total rogue. He has been giving interviews across the media spectrum, politely telling anyone who will listen that following trump’s orders regarding the Coronavirus will lead to certain doom. Death and economic disaster on a scale never seen before. Please turn back while you still can.
And now you are filled in.

Open the schools! Kids not being in school is more harmful than this virus. Kids are BARELY affected by it. Also the death rate across America is low and dropping while the recovery rate is high! OPEN THE SCHOOLS!
It really doesn’t fucking matter how sick the kids get if they live with fucking adults!!!!! Why does nobody understand how viruses spread? If they hadn’t rushed opening up bars and churches, or had actually had a federal response to stop the spreading, then maybe we open in the fall. My kids aren’t.
Unfortunately, it is a bit more nuanced as far as kids going back to school. It is not the norm for kids to have 2 parents at home to support them through this. Even younger kids are being left home alone because their parents can't afford to miss more work. They are experiencing food insecurity, decrease access to developmental and mental health services, and an increase in exposure domestic violence. Of course if we didn't have such an awful, pretty much nonexistent system, to support families, this would not need to be a consideration. So as far as the kids going back to schook the risk for them of staying home is greater than if they go. But the risk for the adults caring for them is greater if they go. My kid has had to stay in daycare the whole time, as a nurse I did not have the option to stay home. There is no good way to try and balance it right now and I don't know what the solution is.
Fully expecting a mass educator strike in August. Our union at CUNY is starting to mull it over as well -- they wouldn't even consider it 4 months ago
I am terrified for my children, their teachers, faculty, and every person in their school that works so hard to care for and educate my children. We are NOT ready to go back in August, but I am afraid to lose their spot in one of the most coveted public schools around here if I don't send them.
This country is lead by a bunch of ass clowns. "Oh kids'll be okay", I don't buy that shit for anything.
There is no way in hell I'd send my kids to school this year, and I'm a single parent struggling to get by. No. Fucking. Way.
"Every disaster movie starts with people not listening to scientists." -Neil DeGrasse Tyson I agree with online/social distancing learning, but also feel for parents who have to adapt, figure out homeschooling, childcare, and work simultaneously.
Schools are safer than riding a rocket into space. 🤷🏼♀️
Super happy to be following your page Austin!
Well ain't that just the perfect story for a soap opera...
i'm really glad i moved away from the states a long time ago. it's an absolute shit show.
Australia was similar when this started. Really keen NOT to close schools. Pushing the rhetoric that kids don't get it. All because they want their parents keep working so they get richer... But yeah... What's going on in the US is next level... Man... I don't understand why Karma is taking so long to strike?! WHYYYYYYYYY?!?!
Sucks seeing parents okay with willfully sending their children to school even if it’s unsafe as hell for their kids and themselves. TEACHERS AREN’T BABY SITTERS.
Arizona has also increased testing by 40% so yeah it makes sense we are seeing way more positive cases.
By this point, i frankly dont think anybody really knows what is going on anymore. XD Could be a piece of an Animaniac´s plot or some shit. XD I think i´ve never ever have seen a western leader putting in so much effort to split this country. Every week it seems "reasonable" has to be a concept utter unfamiliar to him. When Mattis became SoD he was pro-Trump like no one else. Today he isnt anymore. Why? Because he now understands who Trump really is. Seeing Trump defying suggestions from people that do know better (be it CDC, SoD, CJCS beside others) reminds me of that little ol bugger back in the 40´s. The one that wouldnt take advice from his Generals. No, i am not saying Trump is Hitler, but in this regard it seems both a very alike. You´re still stuck in Germany?
I think that it's fairly obvious now to anyone capable of independent thought that trump and his cabinet don't care if we live or die.
No to opening schools ✊
Notice not one word is mentioned about TEACHERS?!!!
Anyone have these video clips?
Schools never should have closed in the first place. Lowest at risk category of all. My children could not learn a damn thing in front of a computer while my wife and I attempted to work/teach/parent all at once for 2 months or whatever it was. Do you have an 8 and 5 year old you've had to do that with? Its exhausting. Fortunately their summer program opened and they have been going every day for over a month. Not a single case spawned from it. Our kids are no longer starved for something to do. Schools absolutely can and should open.

Can you name one of the children killed in last weekends big city crime spree? There were 5. There was also a father gunned down while walking his daughter across the street. ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER
This happened over the weekend in my hometown of Bloomington, IN which is a supposed "progressive mecca" existing within a deeply conservative state.
If you don't believe the account of this human being, especially after watching the attitudes and actions of these men which were filmed directly following the worst of it, I don't know how to change your mind. I don't know how to convince you that this shit is happening everyday in too many places around the united states and I'm honestly unsure if you are capable of any amount of human intelligence.
Let it be said for the record that I don't believe in threats, I'm nonviolent by nature and I only enjoy violence when it's contained inside the consensual realm of sport fighting. However, allow me to say something that some of y'all will call virtue signaling, which I'm fine with at this point. My morality dictates that this is wrong and that I will stand with anyone who is being harmed at the hands of another. As such, I would gladly break every single one of these men in half and if you aren't down with decimating nazis as they attempt to perform a lynching, well then, how in the world did you find me and my music appealing to begin with.
Go listen to any other good old boy with a twang in his voice, I don't want you here.

I wish you were there.
I don't know whether to react to this with love for your attitude or anger for theirs. I don't think there is a way to change some people's minds about this, all that can be done is what you are doing -ceasing to associate with them. Thank you for taking a stand!
You know it happens and you talk about it, but seeing it on video a few miles from home... I hope that affects people in denial re: racism in the US at least as much as it did me.
I'll never understand how some people can be so disgusting & vulgar. Thank God for people like you Austin.
We wrote/called the mayor’s office, the Monroe county prosecutor’s office and the DNR office. Those animals need to be arrested and locked up for a long tine for gate crimes. Also officers involved need to be fired.
I'm seeing that there's a protest at the courthouse today at 530
Looks like people's reaction may force the prosecutor to do something, hopefully. And, if we're lucky, they will get what they deserve and be jailed, fired, etc. www.facebook.com/enoughbtown/posts/131938081878214 That account of what happened was bad enough, compounded by videos and witness statements. So disappointing that some people are just raised with no empathy for others, or worse raised to view others as less than them, and can treat them so cruelly. terrifying. These people need to be outed for who they really are whenever possible
When the opposition has made it clear they will resort to horrible violence, at what point do we realize that non-violence just isn’t going to cut it anymore? I mean, this is insanely disturbing.

It’s a heyday for the blockin’ of Hoosier blockheads whatabouting and disbelieving and blameshifting in friends’ comment threads, I’ll tell you that. Goddamn do I hate those motherfuckers back home. A man was nearly lynched, and these shitheads are all, well, what did he do to cause it, why was he there, he shouldn’t have been there. Assholes.
My friend in Bloomington shared this post today and I was reading/watching it at the exact moment that Somebody Loves You was spinning on my turntable in my living room. The universe is reverberating about this shit, and I hope it reverberates these racist pieces of shit into the slammer, at minimum.
Somebody Loves You in it's entirety, plus plus plus!

Both you and Ben are such great musicians. Cool pic and... That ass thou.
Phoebe Marie Nelson any ideas?
Austin Lucas I have some more if you want. Just have to dig em outta my computer.
Ryan Forman, I feel like you might have an answer to this. Haha.
An enormous part of the puzzle in the acknowledgment of white supremacy, is the idea that we are ALL indoctrinated by aspects of our surroundings, learned behaviors and societal cues. We are NOT talking about individuals and their actions, although there are certainly individuals who are especially EVIL AS FUCK! We are looking at so much more than isolated incidents, and it is my belief that if you want to be an actual active anti-racist, you have to come to terms with the fact that each of us have implicit biases of racism/classism/sexism etc.. inside of ourselves. The disgusting and overt racist motherf*ckers who we see on the streets of our towns and in the comments section of our social media feeds are a product of our society and so are WE. The unfortunate reality is that we probably need to start having uncomfortable conversations with people who we really can't abide and we have to do it now. Not saying this work is for everyone, but, if a person like myself who passes as CIS gendered and white but in reality is bisexual and happens to be jewish can't have uncomfortable discourse with people who I completely ideologically stand against, then what good am I as an ally in this fight? What world do I hope to live in, if screaming at each other and fighting is the only go to? Here are the facts, we have to dismantle supremacy and reject authoritarianism, we also have to figure out how to do that in as many aspects of our daily lives as possible and I think the world we could make is worth the effort. ...

True. And the responsibility increases with the degree of privilege one experiences.
Racism isn't original sin though, it's a construct... Living in MT, Native people get the negative stigma sometimes, why I have to tell my friends that if they come to Blackfeet Nation with me for a rundown ranch weekend that they'll be fine. If you respect other people, I really don't see what the problem is, and why people can't work towards real solutions to help real peoples lives... "Taking a stand" on the internet against idiots really doesn't do anything, and we're all mixed breeds by now anyway. Getting into a community and loving the people is what makes a difference. I'm not saying you don't do that, just giving you an answer to the post.
White people literally cannot be victims of racism in the USA
Black people are racist too bud. Watch some recent viral videos and get over it already.....sorry if I appear to be EAF
Edit and note: these folks definitely don’t get a pass, I’m only pointing out that they have heads full of shit and I’m using them as an example for the end result of white supremacist indoctrination.
Hey everyone, I know it's super difficult but let’s pretend to look at these folks with compassion for just a moment. They're the product of years of being told that the planet is full of the most frightening people and that all of them are coming to kill them and take their world away. Aside from the fact that they are ostensibly awful humans(spoiler alert: THEY ARE) they are also people who have been LIED TO repeatedly. All of their news sources are actual FAKE NEWS, how the fuck else are they supposed to react when they don't know any better? Don't get me wrong, they should know better, they are dangerous and have swallowed a pill of evil medicine but they are also the product of deliberate manipulation. Imagine a world where they had been taught the TRUTH for the last 4 decades, that all people are pretty much interested in the same things and just want to be seen for who they are and treated decently, to have a life and be happy. What would the world look like then? Who would these two reactionary conservative laughing stocks be in that reality? ... See MoreSee Less
I'm suffering from compassion fatigue. I don't know that I have the resources for them.
I'm sorry but no, these are wealthy people with access to information, they're both lawyers, one of them with positions on ethics committees, for christ's sake.They're not people out in rural AR who have no access to the truth or a balanced media, they're people who make choices based on what benefits them and their narrative, no matter how derisive and racist it is to people of color. The only thing they are victims off is their racism and selfishness in choosing to go ass-deep into a sheltered world where they only get told what they want to hear and they have the gal to pull guns on people of color because they know they will get away with it. This is who the system benefits taking full on advantage of it. Fuck these racist shitbags.
They gotta protect their paintings!
If nothing else I'm glad no one was shot as they clearly don't know anything about gun safety. And, they are the kind of famous you do not want to be.
I was thinking along those lines too. That couple are straight up fear eaters. Just a steady diet of being told to be afraid.
If I were afraid for my life from a crowd of people marching down the street, I'd take that rifle and get on the roof or upper floor window. I wouldn't brandish a gun and yell at the people from a few yards away. I do get the point you are making, I just question the idea that what this couple did was based in fear... At least not fear of bodily harm.
I'm a monster... but
These cretins are in my neck of the woods. Just another blow to the city I love.
A bunch of people broke through a Gate and were trespassing. The color of their skin probably didn’t matter. They probably would have done the same thing to any other large group of any skin color acting similarly. Also, they have the right to. I’m not saying they should, just saying legally they have the right too protect their property. To me this has very little to do with race and more the situation. I think any liberal or republican in Hollywood or else where in a gated community white or black would have also done the same thing. Some of them even have armed security which is not much different, they just have people who are paid to point the gun for them. I think these people are being wrongly crucified. There is a reason all these people choose to live in a Gated Community.
They're living in that fantasy where guns somehow make you bulletproof. They were more likely to shoot one another accidentally than be hurt by the protestors.
Has there been any news released on their political leanings? I agree with the sentiment, in general, but there are plenty of people of extreme wealth just like this who consider themselves liberals, too, sadly.
Theses people are demonstaraitably capable of getting an education and qualifications to become lawyers. They went through higher education, learned how to read articles, source check and verify as part of this. In their work they also have to use this skill set. They know, or should know how the land lays and if they choose to ignore this it is willful ignorance. Add to this the the level of privalide that allows them the time and resources to gain knowledge and assess, I see little in the way of excuses. Sure, I get that they feel fearful but they need to ask themselves why they feel this way and why they feel they can react in this way and what it says about the situation where they can point guns with finger on trigger at people who would have otherwise ignored them.
They did release a statement that they actually support BLM but after seeing the riots and destruction I get it.🤷♂️ Its private property. Do they not have the right to protect it?
I like the way you look at it from their vieuwpoint,and you are right,we can't always know what people think.Maybe they are very frightened?
Well said and understood.
gun nuts look for a chance to shoot someone.
Holy Fuck you apparently did not see the mobs threatening them on their lawn in the whole video. ...when you see what you want to see you don't see shit
Call me crazy, but i think anyone who thinks racism is over, calls white supremacy a hoax, refuses to respect the advice of scientists and doctors who are calling for mask use and social distancing during a pandemic. Who hangs on every word of hyperbolic bullshit spewing from Trump's mouth, while also swallowing the conspiracy theories they hear from sources like Alex Jones and Qanon, might need someone to look them in the eye and calmly ask them if they're OK.
Because I assure you, they're not doing ok! ... See MoreSee Less

I believe that we have the capacity to overcome white fragility, if/when we open ourselves to the concept of racism as being something far beyond the experiences and actions of singular human beings. Speaking from personal experience, when I hold my own preconceptions about race up to the light and analyze the ways in which they have caused me to interact with the world, I begin to see the framework by which white privilege exists. I see how I've been complicit in systemic racism, as well as other forms of ableist/oppressive behavior. This is most assuredly difficult self work but it should be done by all of us, especially if we care about gathering knowledge in regards to broader truths, the ability to see historical context and gain greater understanding of the deep complexity of these issues. Unquestionably, we must put aside the narrow lens of criteria which supremacy has laid out as a mechanism to control the narrative by which it’s seen and is allowed to thrive and perpetuate under a cloud of misinformed myopia. We must also strive to NOT see these concepts and conversations as criticism of our individual intended goodness as people, but rather as truths that collectively cause missteps, on the roadmap towards safely traversing a highway that does less harm to one another over time. I find this discussion more rooted in a criticism of indoctrination and values forced upon us all, NOT an attack on any one individual, nor their motives and desires. Although clearly there are an alarming number who seek to perpetrate acts of great violence and actively propagate the most grotesque ideologies of oppressive, even genocidal hatred, I know that most of us at the table today prefer to see ourselves and be seen as decent, kind, moral citizens of the world. Which means that this isn't about intent, no offense, it isn't even about you in a greater sense; it's about US and we all need to learn to do a lot better.

Mind if I share?
I didn't get into boxing because I'm a tough guy, I took to it because of the acute feelings of empowerment that came from training. After years of mental exhaustion and living afraid of the potential violence, so often perpetrated by other men, that feeling of relief was beyond description. I know the month is almost over but I just want to take a moment to say, happy Pride, y'all!

You did the right thing. Feeling vulnerable isn't a good way to travel through life.
You visited me in my dream last night, as did several old friends whom I hadn't seen in years. You were wearing a blue floral dress and greeted me with a hug. Dreams are weird. All the same, it was good to see you. ✌🏻💛
The inability to be vulnerable is what makes it toxic, and I've learned that through my life, but there is nothing wrong with the right kind of masculine leadership. I have to hop on a green horse this weekend and have the kind, but firm mindset to do it, so just my thoughts

Considering that I'm about to live stream the album Somebody Loves You in its entirety tonight, this meme seems appropriate. The title song is about everyone's racist dad/aunt/uncle, those folks are hurt fully ignorant and we all know it. And yet we still hear their voices in our heads sometimes. That voice is the siren song of white supremacy and it is getting ever louder and metastasizing right now in the united states, exactly like the cancer that it is.
