Yesterday I did stay home, but today I might venture out. There are certain non-essential things I want to buy... like paint for my staircase. If I'm going to be home for 2 weeks, I might as well do something somewhat constructive, besides yard work. I also want to stop off at my local Giant. While I'm fairly certain most of their canned goods and frozen foods are gone, I'm feeling pretty sure their fresh fruits and vegetables haven't been touched. People were looking for things they can stock up on and fresh food doesn't last more than a few days.
I saw where Devin Nunes (pronounced new nyez) was advocating for adults to ignore the health warnings and go out to bars. He still thinks this is a hoax and there's nothing to worry about. His beliefs are quite common among Republicans. I do not doubt many of them will catch the virus and the older MAGA heads will die off.
And the Fed drop rates yesterday to between 0 and .25% in an attempt to stave off a crash of the stock market. Almost immediately afterwards the S & P 500 dropped 4%. Prepare yourselves, Wall Street is at the tipping point and soon it will go over the cliff. While the average American is going to be hurt, the billionaires of the world are going to be brutally savaged. In this country, Conservatives are going to be running around like their hair is on fire. They put an Idiot Jerk in the White House, a man who has always too quickly jumped to bankruptcy as a way avoiding his incompetence. Ouch. Very shortly Betsy DeVos may not be able to afford her expensive haircuts. If you think she's a bitch now, just wait until that happens.
Finally, because of the virus, quite a number of churches were closed up here. I understand from Jennifer this was not the case everywhere. For Evangelicals, Covid - 19 is stabbing them in the heart... well, maybe. Like addicts, they need to feed on their drug over, and over, and over again. Some will survive going 'cold turkey' and some will not. Churches used to seeing large collection plate hauls are in for an ugly surprise. Now, ain't that a shame. Of course the big ones, like Joel Osteen's, will no doubt be calling members of the congregation and asking for their credit card donations. I know Jimmy Swaggert does this.
But then he also drives a Porsche and cavorts with whores.
