so the united states senators of the democratic party have twice in one day managed to block passage of a shitty, corporate, republican bailout bill, ostensibly because it doesn’t do enough for workers

this is a pretty low bar for success but i’ll take it in this period

Today at work we all received laminated "right to travel" statements that explain that FedEx is considered a vital business and must remain open. Kind of weird given that I don't think vice squad will be randomly stopping people asking why they're out in public, but whatever. On the other hand we do have a ton of overnight workers so maybe it was meant more for them. At any rate MN will probably do a lock down pretty soon since WI just did.

Oh and jorsh not only did I think about death metal at work today, I actually had a brief conversation about it with someone. Specifically this song:

the question of elite affinity for libertarianism is one i could expand on but i've been drunk for a week straight & can't currently articulate but it's real and has had a dramatic impact on the course of american society over the last 40 years. but i'm happy to chalk this all up to wet-brained nonsense on my part which is a reasonably fair characterization of my general worldview

So not a shelter in place order but anything the state considers non essential is closed. The problem is they consider just about everything essential so it's a bit fucking pointless.

My work is closing all locations tomorrow, so I'm at least off tomorrow I guess. Supposed to know more after some of the corporate folks have a conference call.

Oh yeah that was the thing I forgot to mention. It turns out 80% of the businesses that we deliver to and pick up from have been deemed essential. It's kind of hard not to wonder how much of a negative impact letting those other 20% operate would really make.

Also enjoying the CC doc so far. I'm not a huge fan but nothing beats a good old fashion grass roots metal story. And Stormy don't let oddly reactionary posts keep you from remaining cruise ship drunk during these times. Creating an inhospitable environment for any foreign agent to survive in your body is probably the most responsible thing you can do at this point.

I have a feeling it's going down to a skeleton crew for service (me and the service manager) or we are going to different stores, which I've got some issues with how my commission would work out.

Ain't none to be gotten. So we are open and back to business as usual. They are making the 6 foot rule mandatory, but no one's desk is 6 feet away from the closest person. That'll be interesting game of manuvering tomorrow to say the least.

It will make the area where I work not be a fucking thoroughfare to get out to the lot which will be nice. That's about the only plus side to any of this.

Only thing I've seen along those lines here is that bge (our gas and electric provider) won't be handing out any late fees till May at the moment.

MN governor declared a shelter in place the other day, which as far as I can tell didn't change anything.

I had the day off work and since it was pretty nice out for early spring I decided to go for a walk around some nearby lakes. While people were walking noticeably farther apart, I don't think I've ever seen that many people on the paths in the seven years I've lived in the area. I also noticed people taking walks through a huge nearby cemetery. I was doing that long before social distancing :frown:

Saw a cop pull into a park yesterday and kick everyone out. People are blatantly disregarding the caution tape around all of the play equipment and just taking it down. They should just start finding individuals the same way they are businesses. No warning, just a ticket that says "Thanks for donating your stimulus check. Have a nice day."

According to Hogan and his new exeutive order it'll be a misdemeanor with possible fine of $5k fine and year in jail. But it's not very clear on what his stay at home order is. He's handled shit pretty well but this one is a real head scratcher from what I've seen.

See the jail part is what worries me. Putting more people in really close quarters (a cell) won't exactly allow them to socially distance. A hefty fine should set most folk straight. I'm just hoping no one has to enact martial law to get people to fully comply.

It's just crazy to me. I mean, we're all bored. We all want to be able to just go places again. But we'll never be able to if everyone is sick or dying.

They started doing it here as well. It’s kind of funny because normally a lot of these parks are mostly empty - suddenly they are filled with people! Morons.
