2020, a year like no other. Let’s hope we never, ever see a year anything like it again.



2020, a year like no other.

Let’s hope we never, ever see a year anything like it again.

Here are some of the highlights, or rather, lowlights of 2020:


- A Senate impeachment trial in which Republicans didn't allow any witnesses or any evidence

- COVID-19 appears in China

- Impeachment vote: Spineless, cowardly Republican Senators refusing to convict an obviously guilty and treasonous leader

- COVID-19 spreads to Europe

- The treasonous leader emboldened by getting away with his crimes

- COVID-19 declared a worldwide pandemic

- Shortage of facemasks, not just for private citizens but PPE for doctor and nurses

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Nationwide shutdown

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Toilet paper is in short supply, and where available it’s rationed

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Everything canceled: theatre, sports, sci-fi cons, comic-cons, movies, everything.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Relatives stuck overseas and unable to return home due to quarantine

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Using my spreadsheet to track deaths from Coronavirus every single day

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Working from home

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Getting sick, fearing it’s COVID-19, but testing isn’t available yet, so I don’t know.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Layoffs

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Salary cuts, too

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Benefits cuts, too

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Finding out my state (NJ) has the highest death rate in America from COVID-19

- COVID-19 pandemic

- No vacations, just staycations at best

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Murder hornets reach the United States

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The western states are on fire, biggest fire season in US history

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Several friends and relatives dying, at least one of them (possibly more) from COVID-19 (at age 31), two others of pneumonia (which is often caused by COVID-19)

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Police strangle an innocent black man in public, in broad daylight, by kneeling on his neck for nine minutes while witnesses watch it and plead for them to stop.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Videos surfacing of police killing other innocent black men and women, including a woman paramedic sleeping in her own bed.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Mass protests of police brutality are met with even further police brutality. Much like the old saying, “The beatings will continue until morale improves,” the police attitude seems to be, “The police brutality will continue until you stop protesting police brutality.”

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Racial unrest, riots, looting, and violence in the streets from extremists on both sides set cities on fire, while police beat, tear-gas, and shoot innocent protesters.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- A nationwide run on guns leaves gun store shelves empty, as a perfect storm of reasons to panic leads people on both sides of the political spectrum to believe they will need guns to defend themselves from the other side.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- A 17-year-old right-wing extremist shoots three people in the streets with a rifle. When he tries to surrender to police, they just let him just walk away holding his rifle, because he’s a white teenager. This shooter is immediately proclaimed a “hero” and a “patriot” by right-wing U.S. politicians and talking heads on Fox so-called News.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- An nationwide run on ammunition, even worse than the run on guns, leads to the most severe shortages anyone has seen in their lifetime, with nary a cartridge to be found anywhere, of any caliber, at any price. Why the shortage, who bought it all up, who is buying it all, who is hoarding it all, and why, what are they going to do with it with shooting ranges empty due to COVID-19? Conspiracy theories abound about who is buying up all the ammo being manufactured, and where on earth they’re finding any to buy, as even online stores are empty, despite prices having doubled.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The White House uses military force, tear gas, and rubber bullets on peaceful protesters and clergymen in order to clear the square so the tyrant in the Oval Office can do a campaign photo-op outside a church where he was unwelcome and never attended, holding up a Bible that wasn’t his like it was a dirty diaper.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Hurricanes, hurricanes, and more hurricanes, well into the Greek alphabet

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Finding out my state has the highest death rate in the entire world from COVID-19, not just the highest death rate in America. One in every 500 New Jerseyans are dead from the pandemic.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Postmaster General Lewis DeJoy, under orders to slow down and delay the mail, dismantles and destroys hundreds of millions of dollars of automated sorting machines, removes mailboxes, cuts overtime, has trucks driving around empty, and takes other measures to slow down the mail and destroy the US Postal Service in an attempt to rig the November election

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Despite the McConnell rule from 2016 that Supreme Court justices shouldn’t be confirmed during an election year, a new Supreme Court justice is nominated and approved in record time. Just days before the most important election in history, a religious extremist from a cult where she’s known as a “handmaid”, despite having almost no experience as a judge, is nominated and confirmed in record speed to the highest court in the land on a pure party-line vote. This gives the impeached President three of his own Supreme Court justices on the court, and he publicly declares that by putting her on the Supreme Court, it will help him steal a disputed election.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The superspreader event announcing the nomination of the new Supreme Court justice (one of many superspreader events at the White House) leads to COVID-19 spreading to the President, First Lady, and over a dozen White House staff. They learn absolutely nothing from this, and continue holding suprespreader events for the rest of the year.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Twitter specifically says they allow political parody accounts, yet with the 2020 election approaching, Twitter shut down anti-Trump parody accounts, including mine (@MoscowTrump), with no warning, no explanation, and no reason whatsoever.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The President learned less than nothing from his bout with COVID-19, as it made his attitude towards the virus even dumber, because his monarch-level treatment (including pumping him full of steroids and experimental drugs not available to the general public) gave him the crazy idea that COVID-19 is no big deal, because in his words, “You catch it, you get better, and then you’re immune.”

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The most important election of our lifetime

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Waiting days for an election winner to be announced

- COVID-19 pandemic

- A hopeful sign: a good and decent man is elected President by an overwhelming margin of over 7,000,000 votes. But we were unable to enjoy the moment, because…

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The loser of the election refusing to concede

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The loser of the election suing to overturn the election

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The party that lost the election trying to steal the vote by threats of violence

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Getting sick again, fearing it’s COVID-19, and getting tested

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Extremely valuable packages getting lost in the mail, or by FedEx, or UPS, and then FedEx refusing to pay insurance on the packages they lost.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The loser of the Presidential election blocking the transition and not allowing the President-elect to get his briefings

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Despite violent threats, the states certifying that President-elect Biden won the election

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The loser of the Presidential election bringing his baseless lawsuits to the Supreme Court

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The Supreme Court refusing to help the loser steal the election

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Packages and mail taking weeks to get to the neighboring state, some never arriving

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The loser of the Presidential election trying to change the Electoral College votes

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The Electoral college upholding the true election results

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Russia hacking important U.S. infrastructure including nuclear weapons storage sites

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The traitor in the White House refusing to condemn Russia’s attack (again)

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The man in the White House pardoning more of his accomplices and henchmen, rewarding his accomplices for helping him cover up his own crimes.

- The loser of the election meeting in the Oval Office with turncoat traitor General Flynn to seriously discuss a seditious plot to invoke martial law to overturn a free and fair election and make himself dictator

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Continuation of the months-long Congressional deadlock over whether to approve desperately needed and long-overdue financial relief to Americans

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The loser of the Presidential election threatening violence in the streets on January 6th

- COVID-19 pandemic

- The loser of the Presidential election spreading disinformation that the election was rigged, every single day, on Facebook, Twitter, radio, television, and all other platforms, with none of the tech companies daring to deny him their platform, even though he’s instigating threats of violence by his brainwashed cult of heavily-armed supporters.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- A Christmas-day bombing in Nashville leaves downtown looking like a war zone, but the man in the White House refuses to condemn or even mention the bombing. Even though the bomber committed suicide-by-bomb, the media stubbornly refuses to call it a “suicide bombing” because of the color of his skin, saying instead that he “died in the blast”, but if he were brown or Muslim, they would have called the suicide bombing that it obviously was.

- Vaccine available, but of the goal of 20 million Americans vaccinated by yearend, only 2 million Americans vaccinated, meaning it will take 10 years at this rate to vaccinate all Americans

- COVID-19 pandemic

- A new, more contagious mutation of COVID-19 reaches America

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Crooked Republican Congresscritters (but I repeat myself) and at least one Senator are planning to contest the election results on January 6th

- COVID-19 pandemic

- Violent neo-fascist, white supremacist groups all planning to gather in the streets of Washington DC on January 6th, the day that Congress certifies the Presidential election results.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- December 29th headline: “Dog-Size Lizards Spreading Into Texas And Louisiana From Florida”. As if “murder hornets” weren’t enough to worry about, to prove 2020 isn't done giving us weird sh*t to worry about, now it seems Jurassic Park has come alive in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana. That's no lizard, it's a dinosaur! I've seen the Jurassic Park movies, and they don't end well for the humans, who always end up having to evacuate and leave the island to the dinosaurs.

- COVID-19 pandemic

- As the year 2020 ends, for the first time in 160 years, the threat of a military coup, violent revolution, or both looms over America at yearend. We are all holding our breath, not knowing if democracy will survive in America for even another month. The loser of the Presidential election is still spreading disinformation that the election was rigged, every single day, on Facebook, Twitter, radio, television, and all other platforms, with none of the tech companies daring to deny him their platform, even though he’s instigating a violent revolution to overthrow democracy and make himself dictator.


Happy New Year 2021!

But remember, Mad Max took place in 2021…
