    I can see Trump's point about getting back to work, because we're going to be experiencing civil unrest pretty soon if millions don't see some sort of income. It probably won't help when the suddenly poor and hungry turn on the TV and see reports about the Dow, therefore Wall Street, doing well. They have been hating on the financiers for over a decade, and own no stock (hell, don't own much but debt), and this won't help.

    That'll be hilarious.
    You guys have taken such a long hiatus from striking that you have forgotten even the basic things like building proper barricades, tossing molotov cocktails and catching rubber bullets with your genitals. You would need few busloads of German anarchists, French yellow vests and Ukrainan miners to help you out...pity that they would end up being quarantined.

    Well kudos to some of the work stoppages by Amazon whse workers, grocery store employees and medical folks. Drop in the bucket. I hear that officially 10%+ American's are unemployed, so they would love to get any job these days. To the C-suits, workers are just a liability on a spreadsheet, not an asset. Sadly, it seems like Trump and Co also think our sailors and soldiers are also expendable.

    Only in Trump world would a US President be trying to push for higher oil prices. Trump and JaKush must have some nice side deals going with the KSA and Putin.

    https://finance.yahoo.com/news/stagg...174557991.html

    The two nations appear to have buried differences that led to a huge supply surplus, delegates said. The rapprochement came just before the extraordinary virtual meeting of OPEC and its allies kicked off.

    Oil surged as much as 11%.

    Moscow, whose grudge against U.S. shale could still arguably prevent a final deal, said Wednesday it’s willing to reduce output by 1.6 million barrels a day, or roughly 15%. Saudi Arabia was also discussing a cut of 15% to 17% on Thursday, delegates said, asking not to be identified because the talks were private.

    Reading most threads in the PR including this one, someone outside the US could only think that Americanos are a bunch of whiney bitches. For fucks sake people, you have have $1000 iPhones, cars, etc., and best of all nobody's shooting at you on a daily basis (unless you live in East St. Louis.) So harden the fuck up and quit complaining about every fucking little perceived financial and social injustice before you become a bitter old man like Benny.

    These folks still know how to bring it in the USA. They are not shy to use the threat of violence. Not sure about molotov cocktails, they tend to favor more precision guided projectiles...In another life, I had my share of run ins with the ILWU. Of course always on their turf.

    Protesting union members blocked the tracks and squared off against about 40 law enforcement officers equipped in tactical helmets, with some carrying bean-bag shotguns and pepper-ball guns. Three were arrested in the original confrontation, then a standoff of about an hour took place. At about 4:35 pm, the 107-car train backed up about 200 yards, to the cheers of the crowd. At that time, ILWU National President Robert McEllrath told the crowd that it was time to back off, to “live to fight another day.”

    This morning, the protestors actually entered the plant site, storming the security guards at the facility. None of those people were attacked or injured, but they report that the protestors took a Columbia Security vehicle, then drove it into a ditch. Windows were also broken out on the guard shack. Speaking with local law enforcement from a hiding place in the plant, the security guards reported that the protestors went in and cut hoses on the train that had entered the facility. After doing that damage, those involved in the confrontation quickly left, while law enforcement resources were staging nearby. Shortly after 6 am, law enforcement set up a perimeter around the plant, planning to arrest all remaining protestors on the property.

    My understanding from some 2nd hand accounts on the incident, were that the guards were pissing their pants after they had been overrun.

    I'm wondering if the 60+ age group that over-invested in the equities and high yield market after 2008 in order to try and get their portfolio back to 2006 levels, will now embrace cash a bit more in the future? Or will they return with gusto again and try to recoup these latest losses?

    I think those that sold at losses and then watched the market come back have learned a lesson. But who knows.

    And there lies the problem: There is a slight difference between strikes and full blown revolts, no need to go full retard...
    Annual May 1st riots in Berlin between leftists/anarchists and police is "good" example: Riot police, water cannons and a tad of mayhem.


    Just a proper show of force and then, day after, back to normal.

    Hey, fuck, I'm cool. I've got mine. I've even made a little money out of all of this. I live literally on a hill in a prosperous town filled with the top 5% and patrolled by a very well paid police force. Just bring back skiing and Euro travel and no whoop. Good luck to the rest of you.

    Statistically they were conservatively invested (what little savings they had) and have not freaked out in the current shitshow.
