It's Friday. Will it be a good one or a bad one? For me it's probably going to be an 'in house' day. Stay at Home, you know? Believe me, I have plenty of things to do around here.
I went to my neighborhood Giant yesterday and they had both toilet paper and paper towels in stock, not vast quantities mind you, but there was product on their shelves. Very shortly, the sales of those two items are going to seriously decline. Let's be honest here, if you have a freaking closet full of toilet paper you're not going to need to buy it for a long, long, long time.
There are a lot of people out there who feel Wall Street represents the American economy... yesterday shows how wrong those beliefs are. 6.6 million more Americans filed for unemployment last week, they're estimating the actual total of Americans filing for unemployment over the last 3 weeks to be around 18 million... and the Dow Jones went up. That's right. States do not have enough money to pay the bill. They're going to go into debt. So, why did the markets go up? The Fed is buying some sort of bonds and those billionaires who own 84% of the American stock market jumped for joy. The stock market has always been a reflection of greed, rather than the American economy.
Evidently some of the Idiot Jerk's allies wish he'd cut back on his daily briefings, especially since a majority of Americans are beginning to look at how shitty his response was at the beginning. One anonymous voice said he should stay away from the podium and just let the science guys talk. Perhaps this is because a number of stations are cutting away before he's finished, or they're only telecasting the bits where Brix and Fauci speak. My opinion? Let him continue, every time he opens his mouth he hurts himself more and more. And I really do think he should continue his stupid Tweets. Yesterday, he Tweeted an objection to an Op Ed in the Wall Street Journal saying they were ignoring the fact that his ratings were higher than Monday Night Football and the Bachelor's Final Episode. Try and think about that without laughing. Really? There is a pandemic sweeping the globe. As of yesterday, almost 17,000 Americans have died from it. And he's pleased his ratings are beating the Bachelors Final Episode.
Finally, since there are some out there who believe this is going to be a good Friday, I thought I'd post this picture of the Idiot Jerk. This is what evil looks like.
See how It gloats as It sucks their souls from them, or maybe it's because the woman in pink has her left hand on his ass.
