    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Tokyo (CNN)"Even though we live in different places, we live under the same sky," read the stanza on the sides of boxes filled with face masks and thermometers sent to China from the Japan Youth Development Association (JYDA).

    Over 1,300 years ago, a grandson of the Japanese emperor sent that ancient poem to a high-ranking Chinese monk called Ganjin. It inspired him to go to Japan to spread Buddhism.

    Just as it did then, the poem hit home today, going viral on Weibo with more than 39,000 posts tagging the line. Even former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama shared it with his Twitter followers.

    "This is not a moment for excuses or deflections or blame game. We're -- we're in the middle of a pandemic that has cost us more than 85,000 jobs as of today. Lives of millions of people. Millions of people. Millions of jobs. You know, and we're in a position where we just got new unemployment insurance, this morning, numbers, 36.5 million claims since this crisis began."

    Most of it is thanks to DJT's stupid supporters.


    I quote the entire body of Robert Reich's work.

    Sad, if true. But still better than that what you have now.

    Should it not be 'Last Quoter Wins'? (in terms of thread titles and words swimming on an ocean of alphabet soup like complex molecules in the primordial mac 'n cheese of the early days?) What are we?

    Just another argument for clawing back power from the executive branch.
  5.  
    The party that is out of power always complains that the Executive has too much power.
    Until they are the party in power, of course.
    Then they realize that the Executive needs more power.

    Isn't this covered in The Prince somewhere?
    Or maybe it was The Little Prince.

    Well, the State Dept. IG isn't gone yet. DJT is required by law to give 30 days notice to the Senate of his intent to fire someone. The ball is in McConnell's court now. Let's see if he's got the gumption to stop the Great Orange Prevaricator.

    This whole re-opening idea amounts to waiting for yesterday when it's tomorrow that's going to arrive.
