The GOP Plan to Reopen the Economy

Trump's advisory council has been a shit show, as many of the people named to it were not told that they had been named, let alone asked.

Charles Koch, one of the more evil men on the globe, is upset that the governments have put preventing widespread death over the interests of his companies. But he was more than happy to have his own political thugs work from home.

This is Ol' Charlie, addressing his workers:


Koch's little astroturf organization has been in the forefront of trying to cut the budgets for public health. He can afford doctors, so what does he care if other people get sick? He certainly doesn't give a fuck if a pandemic raged unchecked through the population. He's likely one of those old-style eugenicists who believes that a pandemic only attacks the poors.

The push to open the economy is, to paraphrase John Oliver, is turning worship of the stock market into a fucking death cult.

Hell, even Trump knows better than that. Maybe
