We are up to day… 48, wow. I miss having plans.
Yesterday, I realized one of the reasons I’m not keen on quick reopenings, beyond the obvious reasons of folks getting sick & dying. The faster we reopen, the less likely we are to get any of the structural change we need (and have needed for YEARS) in this country. I can see politicians just going, “But look, we got through it, we don’t need M4A/UBI/worker protections, cause America, Fuck Yeah!”
Yesterday I also made the HUGE mistake of looking up how much our parent company reported for net income in 2019 and how much was paid out in dividends. Someone has been eating a shit ton of avocado toast around here given the hits the employees are having to take. (Yes, I am still s bitter bunny on that.)
In other pandemic news, REI STOP TELLING ME ABOUT ALL THE GREAT SALES ON AWESOME THINGS, PLEASE. I HAVE NO DISPOSABLE INCOME FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS.
Alrighty, you have a good day, survive this shit. I’m gonna go try and make money and burn down capitalism at the same time.
Hang in there.
