Somebody must keep the sanitary sewer plants working. Since we are all home just shitting in our pants. Oh. Maybe they are not essential workers.

Many of our lowest paid workers are essential. The job is so bad that if it weren't essential, it wouldn't exist. It's also so bad that anyone with options wouldn't do it. So only people with no options do it, and people with no options can be paid very little.

Side note re shitting:

Please don't send the wipes down the toilet to the sanitary sewer. They're not flushable despite what it might say on the label.

Dem Rep. Told Colleagues Coronavirus Bill Is ‘Tremendous Opportunity to Restructure Things to Fit Our Vision’

Do you want to lose elections? Many elections in a row? Because this is how you lose many elections in a row.

Maybe they can strike that in exchange for whatever silly money is going to any entity outside of the American people.

Seattle NPR Station Says It Will No Longer Carry Donald Trump’s Coronavirus Briefings Live Because Of Misinformation

Quote:
“KUOW is monitoring White House briefings for the latest news on the coronavirus — and we will continue to share all news relevant to Washington State with our listeners,” the station tweeted. “However, we will not be airing the briefings live due to a pattern of false or misleading information provided that cannot be fact checked in real time.”

Free media coverage is his oxygen. I hope this asphyxiates his lies.

Sticking your fingers in your ears while loudly going LA LA LA doesn't help, it just keeps you from hearing what the opposition will assume is gospel. Now you can't argue with them because you don't even know what they believe.

All this does is drive his base away from NPR and the slim chance of jump starting critical thinking in some of the base.
