Have you noticed that Trump is now threatening to withhold aid to states that "aren't nice to him?"

And he's beginning to demand that Americans go shopping again, like NOW!

Republicans are very well known for ordering people to go shopping, and having hissy fits when they don't obey.





The thing is, maybe they are RIGHT when they voice fears that we might scuttle the economy in order to win.
And that is a damn shame...but not for the reason you might think.
It's a damn shame that we've become so powerless as a society that we're reduced to the point where that really IS the only power that we have remaining.

What are they going to do, arrest people if they DON'T go shopping?
Do we really have to do a counter-move to the ultimate Trump hostage taking drama?
Maybe we do. As much as it hurts, maybe we do, because no matter what, we are going to get [censored] and badly.

PS: After hearing the new martyrdom request from Lt. Gov Dan Patrick, I never want to hear another Trump even utter "ALL LIVES MATTER" or the term "PRO-LIFE".

PS: Amazon is asking the public for donations to fund extra sick leave for their employees. Amazon is a trillion dollar company.

My ex tried to go shopping, there was nothing in the store.

I need a new phone, tried to order it today but it's back ordered.

Chewy says they're going to deliver dog food but it's four days late.

Amazon is late with the rabbit food too.

I went to Arby's today on my way back from the bank and bought a sack of sandwiches from the drive through. I figure that they will refrigerate well, and can be microwaved to be palatable.

We ordered groceries last week, but literally only got half (or a little less) of the order. We are due for another delivery Thursday. We usually alternate ordering groceries and going to the store. Now we're being much more conscientious about not going out, but you are right, delivery is not as reliable as in the past. I've got 16 rolls of TP, 10 boxes of Kleenex, but only two more rolls of paper towels. I hope that will be good for the month.

I’m getting our troybilt tiller fired up for the garden and have a source for seeds. Food security may become a thing and I’m guessing there will be plenty of time to garden this year.
If you have the capacity to do so, a small victory style garden might be a prudent hedge.

Given all the time I have on my hands... It occurred to me that Trump may get an advantage out of this crisis that hasn't already been addressed (e.g., crisis presidents) - and that is crisis fatigue. Trump may be remarkably impatient, but two-three weeks of isolation and there will be a lot of sympathy for that impatience. People are feeling desperate, and desperate people do strange things.

As if on cue... Coming Soon: Donald Trump as the Hero of COVID-19 (The Bulwark).

I feel like we've all been signed up for a new religion that demands daily rounds of human sacrifice, like where each day a group of people are selected to be forced to jump into the COVID19 "volcano" to satisfy the Great Orange God of Anger and Business.

Looks like Senate Democrats have sold out out the rest of us to save the rich.

I predict that the covid-19 relief bill will be the straw that finally causes King Kon’s psychotic break.

I know why Trump is irrationally claiming that America will be open for business by Easter. It’s because his nonessential business (which he isn’t supposed to be running while he’s president) is losing money faster than a chemo patient loses hair. It must totally frack his greedy and selfish little brain that the two trillion dollar relief bill explicitly denies him any of that money.

Easter Resurrection
