Housebound - Day 49
A few recent observations.
I like the Blue Angels and pointless displays of military hardware as much as the next patriot, but perhaps for the next flight they could airdrop food. Or cash.
I saw a police officer, on a mountain bike, riding down an empty street. He was popping wheelies. I’m thinking this means crime is down.
Why do people wear their face masks while driving? Alone?
How is it that we’ve had videoconferencing tech for 10 years but insurance companies are just this month deciding to cover telemedicine?
If we currently have to wear masks at the grocery store, when they finally do reopen the restaurants, how are we going to eat with masks on?
The Great Depression is taken. The Great Recession, also taken. Perhaps this will be called The Great Lesson, because we might possibly learn something this time? You’re right, seems unlikely.
How is it the airlines got $50 billion in taxpayer funds but American won’t refund my fucking four grand?
Can we all finally agree that high-speed Internet is a utility?
The “cure is not worse than the disease” if you’re the dead one. It’s actually the reverse in that particular situation…
Anyone else amused that AirBnB and VRBO—both companies that rely on travel—are now sending “helpful” emails about cooking, playing games, and exercise at home? Way to stay engaged, guys! I’m sure your business will be fine.
Perhaps now’s the time to discuss the fact that employer-based health insurance has a highly specific single point of failure: when your job disappears. That’s kind of an important detail, no?
Just want to make sure everyone is aware that the first round of checks to those who lost their jobs was delayed because Trump wanted his signature printed on them.
How is it that the ONE elected Republican (Justin Amash) who publicly opposed Trump is now going to run for President? Say it with me now: THIRD PARTY CANDIDATES CANNOT WIN IN OUR SYSTEM.
Did Jared bring peace to the Middle East yet? Just my monthly check in.
Enjoy your Friday. Maybe a home-made cocktail?

You know who I am, right? It's in the "bio" section. I'm the guy stuck at home.
