    Germany was one of the three countries hardest hit when the virus spread out of Italy.  They got it under control with a lockdown much stricter than anywhere in the U.S., plus an unemployment system that pays 2/3 of salary, plus widespread testing and contact tracing.  The testing is what has allowed Germany to mostly reopen--even their schools are back in session, with all students being tested every four days.

    Let's also not forget that Donald Trump was not the anointed candidate of the Republican Party grandees or their corporate masters. As far as I can see, his was a genuine populist insurgency from the party's base...
     
    ...Though one could certainly argue -- and I would -- that the Republican Party base's alienation and rage was consciously cultivated for generations by those party leaders and corporate masters. And now they seem quite happy with a president who says openly what was coded in dog-whistle language, and openly attacks the political norms they spent decades undermining.

    With 100k dead (and not seeing the peak yet), I'm curious what you would consider "too much destruction"...

    It's also important to remember that the promises of gun violence are empty threats.  There was a Kenyan Muslim in the White House for eight years and none of these patriots pulled the trigger.  There's a Russian mole in the White House right now and none of these patriots are pulling the trigger.  99.9999% of gun owners would meekly surrender their weapons to a white police officer if it came down to it.  They're just dangerous toys with Constitutional marketing.

    Found some updated excess death data from ft.com:
     

     

     

     
    Note that data is a few weeks old on some of these.

    I don't know about that, but a couple of years ago I found a long spreader that was specifically designed to reach all the way into a peanut butter jar, allowing me to get all the peanut butter out without getting it all over my hand.  It was awesome.
