Can't believe telling everyone "you have to go to work but can't go out after" didn't work
"Don't go anywhere or get near anyone or touch anyone or breathe near anyone but also yes you still have to go to work. TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY also get your ass to work."

I'm done being mad at normal people reacting understandably to that.
The Best Economic System doesn't have a Pause button. That's the only way to stop the spread, and we don't have that button. Other countries had one, or made one, but not us.
My 2 year old thinks this is just what life is like. My 5 year old vaguely remembers what birthday parties are. Vaguely remembers what friends are. It's been 9 months. All because there's no Pause button. No will or way to tell creditors and landlords "just stop."
I've said this before, but this is the kind of thing that brings down governments. People seeing with their own eyes that at a time where the federal government is indisputably the only entity with the tools and the power to help, they won't.
What was the last Big Win for the United States? The Moon Landing? 50 fucking years ago. Nobody under 50 remembers anything but failure. I'm 35 - my whole life, this thing has done nothing but fail and deteriorate.
