And that's why in the entire history of the world no country with a
constitution has ever slipped into dictatorship...oh waite ...

Yeah yeah because otherwise deficit spending will destroy the economy, the
same song and dance I've been hearing all my life and all my father's life
too, and it's starting to get a little old.

It's very odd, the way you keep repeating that over and over like a mantra
it's almost as if you think it's important.

Speaking of Elon Musk, he predicted on March 19 that there would be “*close
to zero new cases*” in the U.S. “*by end of April*". Yesterday was May 22
and there were 24,197 new cases in the U.S. bringing the total of sick
people to 1,647,043 with 97,687 dead. Worldwide there have been 5,336,352
cases and 340,613 dead.
