Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

You really think just a 35% weakness in 3 years? It took Murica 243 years to rack up 24 trillion in debt and now they're stacking on a trillion a month. 26 trillion now and it will be 27 trillion in weeks. I'm not a math wizard but I just don't see this beat down van driving that far. And that goes ...

Re: On C.V. Testing

about two weeks ago we needed to go shopping. we were running out of various things. both jumbo delivery and lider pickup stopped working where we are at. we have pretty much managed to stay out of a grocery store since the first case was detected. so, we decided to bite the bullet, and go to lider...

Re: Any push back?

Reminds me of a scene from GOT:

Ramsay: My hounds will never harm me.
Sansa: You haven't fed them in seven days. You said it yourself.
Ramsay: They're loyal beasts.
Sansa: They were. Now they're starving.

Winter is coming...

Re: America on Fire

I dislike Trump with my guts, morally / politically / economically, but I find your question extremely naïve and out of touch with reality. Let me try harder to explain. When Trump ran in 2016 he had a TON of enthusiasm behind him. He was an "outsider", not a politician and he had enough money to w...

Re: America on Fire

What do they intend doing with it? Maybe use it in their calculations to see what percentage of the population still believe the clown show? There have only been two candidates in the last 4 years who had the people's enthusiasm to pack out arenas. Trump and Bernie. Bernie was not allowed to be in ...

Re: Any push back?

I only saw 5 minutes of video from the second article. Those carbineros were NOT social distancing. Let's just hope that the protesters chanting in the background were all wearing masks and standing at least 6 feet away from each other. Yea - fear of cooties ain't gonna keep the masses sitting on th...

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

Yes. Of course. I'm agreeing with you. It's mind blowing to see it. I like to think it's done with good intentions, but we'll likely never know why. What happens after this crisis when/if the system can no longer afford to float all of those poor souls? It might make the riots in October look like a...

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

It always looks like stores are overstaffed in order to lower unemployment statistics. If stores like Sodimac are for profit entities, then why would they care about a country's unemployment statistics? Perhaps there is some sort of government incentive for it? At any rate, government can manipulat...
