    But the shit people put up with now boggles my mind, so who knows?
    I just don't see people being too stoked about losing their homes and families. Or going to work and dying, then families losing their homes. Or will a 100 million people end up dying, so nothing will come back to be the same. Are the 1% crowding into tha underground city in Missouri? Did Trump deliver the apocalypse?

    I think the surplus of milk is due to no restaurant cheeses and creams.

    Yeah some workers could be faking if that’s what that article says, have my hands full now.

    Workers put up with a lot, but salt and coal mines of the 40’s can’t be much better.

    Maybe they've started lacing it with quinine.

    Wayne County Iowa is a southern tier county along the Missouri State line. This area is the heart of Trump Country. All the kids have huge jacked up trucks worth more than their trailers. The joke has always been if you give the bottom row of Iowa counties to Missouri you'd raise the IQ of both states. Very religious. Under educated. Ravaged and left behind in the modern economy. The Amish do quite well financially though...since they buy everything with cash.
    I did a RAGBRAI route through southern Iowa. I remember asking my older brother why all the barns were so old and falling down and he said they don't have enough money to fix anything. There were a lot of dumpy areas and poor white people.

    I grew up in Dubuque, IA. They have quite a few cases. It's a relatively connected and wealthy area, which seems to be a trend for areas with lots of spread. My Grandma's 90th birthday is April 18th. She'll be home alone I sadly wonder if I'll ever see her again.

    General strike seems unlikely. Heard of some healthcare workers complaining too, but they didn't do anything. It's sort of now or never. The modern slave has not even the privilege of being owned. Just get used up and tossed aside.

    Also seems unlikely the world's number one economy would bungle its pandemic response so badly it needed to shut down its economy. Here we are. So, who's to say?

    Sweden had on Thursday 500+ new positives, 50 new deaths and they "just found out" that a huge number of elderly care facilities have been infected in Southern Sweden. Meanwhile Norway had 6 deaths, Finland 2 and Denmark sadly catching up with 19 deaths.

    The floggings will continue until morale improves.
