yeah but it's nice to have something that's blatantly false in there with the believable-ish doom and gloom that yospos loves. it helps me remember that this forum is pessimistic beyond what is reasonable and treat its apocalyptic predictions appropriately

idk i've been telling myself 'well the next two weeks will be interesting' since december and so far every prediction has come true right on schedule

anybody who was telling your fiancé it was cool to go to London is either stupid or ignorant, straight up. but the covid-economic-disaster talk is currently about the same level as nbsd's Tylenol rant as far as hyperbole goes. it'll be real bad for some people, but this is not the end of the (economic) world

ya same. what you said re: "the next few months are going to suck but that's about it" is p much my take too. it'll especially suck for eg food workers etc but things will bounce back and the wheels of capitalism will continue to grind us all down a little bit more

i had put in my paperwork at my job for my last day being the 23rd, and due to the mechanics of working for a school district, they were sitting with their head in the sand about preparing for wfh

so i told my boss "lol this is dumb i'm changing my resignation date to tomorrow if we're not gonna enable wfh until we're absolutely forced to"

and then the county shut down so i'm not even sure if i have to even pretend to wfh tomorrow

kinda weird saying goodbye to your job when it's entirely wfh

in fairness, the last time a plague like this hit america, half the nation hadn't been brainwashed by fox news and the NRA, and social media hadn't whipped millions of chuds up into a frenzy where they're just itching to mow down "liebural democrats"

If Republicans just become Racist Socialists then I think that it might be easier to make them not racist than it is to make Democrats into Socialists, which seems like a total lost cause at this point. Also Democrats are plenty racist too.

Whoever abandons capitalism first is going to win is what I'm saying

If history has taught us anything it's that "racist socialists" are just facists. We all ought to be pretty concerned when the nationalist, racist side of politics starts co-opting socialist rhetoric, because that's when they start redefining who a citizen is and start eliminating all of those who don't fit that description.

Right now the worst off are going to be the undocumented of course. The big red flag though, the thing where you literally start burning down police stations, is when they try to subcategorize "citizen" which currently is one big uniform bloc with zero differentiation, in law at least.

Hawaiian airlines just said my fiance can't get on the plane home from JFK to HNL. She was in the UK yesterday, and they told her it is a new policy that you have to wait 14 days. American Airlines seems to not have this policy, at least the people on the phone don't think so. Fingers crossed.
