yesterday was the highest yet death toll here in the USA: 4489. And motherfuckers still won't wear masks.


The UK death toll was 1500 odd yesterday and you have five times the population of us ... sucks being here. Our town went from being pretty good in early December (under 100 cases per 100,000) to pretty bad this week, 550 per 100,000, and our hospital is so full with COVID patients that operating theatres are being used for wards - and we are no where the worst in the country.

We just got the UK variant in our county, first confirmed case is someone "who recently traveled to multiple continents." So once again showing that a few bad actors can destroy the best precautions of the remaining 99.8%.

My buddy just sent me photos from Vegas, so I guess people are thinking it's ok to travel again.

I appreciate there's a lot of people with cabin fever and seasonal disorder, but I can't help but think there are more reasonable alternatives.

Cabin fever - kerrist nearly ready to burn the cabin down over here. We've been locked in for over two months with probably another six weeks (if we're lucky) to go, and that's after nearly four months back in Spring.
Plus this pandemic is slowly sending us into recession for quite a few quarters coming up and the debt, shit the govt has been paying people whose businesses they shut down since April and it will go on to the end of this April, is bloody massive - we will be seeing a bit of a tax increase once it is all over.

I'm not an extrovert or an introvert, but I am fine with being alone for extended periods of time. I could definitely do another year of social distancing if necessary, and at the current rate of vaccination, that might be the reality for 2021.

Nobody seems to be talking about this yet, but inflation is likely on the way. I am seeing price hikes from quite a few of our vendors at work, and it stands to reason that businesses will try to recover from pandemic business losses by raising prices.

Well, fwiw, there's no clear indication in any CPI statistics that inflation is on the way, current US interest rates continue to hover near 0 and have for a long time. If inflation does start, that will be an indication that the federal reserve will have to slow down the injection money into the economic system, which would be quite problematic for a recovery.

We already have a real estate bubble - so that meltdown is coming on two fronts - Housing, bouyed by record rates is nuts right now - I think a lot of markets are overheated and are going to cool off....But the real crash is in commercial real estate - We are going to be talking about CMBS ( Commercial Mortgage Backed Securities) pretty soon after we are done talking about the insurrectionist in chief, I think.
