I do not know any people who are grandparents who do not want to see the grandkids. No saying some do not want to see them, but I think it is odd.


It happens.

Happens way more than you think as CCP says. Sometimes it's the parents keeping the grandkids away and other times it's the grandparents only doing token holiday visits and that's it.

I'll put it this way without going into detail, my MIL is not fit to watch my kids or be around them. So we avoid her at all cost. She's not allowed to watch our kids overnight. Some families are tight, or look tight from the outside looking in. Most aren't.

What it looks like so far is that prices are falling in the denser cities and prices are increasing in the suburbs. A result of telework opportunities. I wonder if now is the time to buy some rural but beautiful land (waterfront or mountain/valley view) in anticipation of teleworker demand and widespread 5g.


Lot of small towns and exurbs are suddenly experiencing strains in providing services as people flock to these Zoom towns as they are called.

That is why Pelosi has been coy about "the COVID bailout" as it is about helping those states like Illinois


90% of that problem is unfunded pension debts.

I can't help wondering if the whole damn thing was designed not to just swing the election, but to try to get us to permanently stay at home, for the good of "the environment".


Are you just figuring out this now???

It mostly is pensions for sure. The lost revenue from use taxes is huuuuuuuuuuuge though. Sales, amusement, airport landing fees, port fees, gas taxes, etc. and in many cases income taxes for the states that have that shit. Much of this stuff has been at 25% of revenue generation for 4-5 months minimum. Income taxes will likely be down 5-10% in most states that have them.

The use taxes are the worst though. They cannot be made up. Muni's budgeted for X, Y and Z and X may have gone to zero in the case of amusement taxes. No sports, concerts or large gatherings. Toll roads budgeted that a certain number of cars would come through and it fell off to nothing practically at the beginning.

The key question is are layoffs the answer or increasing fees? Both would suck, but I predict taxes, fees are going up here soon in a lot of places. Especially if we stay closed down to some extent.

The real impetus behind "Defund the police?"

don't see why.


You see, when plebeians move around by car, train, bus, or plane, they pollute Jeff Bezos' personal planet.

Also, the plebeians breathe too much, expelling carbon dioxide with every breath. Plebeian breathing must be stopped. A "vaccine" seems likely to help with that.

I'd be okay with that kind of defunding. Pick a percentage off your gross pay and invest in a 401k like the rest of us. No more pensions that are guaranteed and unrealistic for the years served and the amount put in.

Let them eat cake.

Here is what is going to happen. They'll meet all or most of the pension obligations while cutting services. They'll freeze or reduce hirings and apply attrition, that is replace 2 retiring workers with 1 worker. They'll cut maintenance on local parks and let the grass grow longer. They'll reduce library hours. They'll increase fees.

First time I've heard that phrase. Makes sense.

Yeah, we've experienced that in CA over the past 12 years. Funny they talk about defunding police. We already did that. I rarely see a cop when I'm speeding around. My radar detector is nearly useless now.

I wonder if it'll be legal in the state I'll be moving to? Damn thing won't die. It's an escort passport 9500IX. Has a database, gps and 'learns' the false signals so when you drive around it's super quiet. Entirely different than what I had in my hot rod in the 80s.

I can't remember the last time that thing chirped.
