The new jobless graph borrowed from the old global warming graph
The cost of our actions is outweighing the benefit. This disease is not Ebola, it does not kill what can be considered even a moderate % of its victims. We can control spread and not put everybody in the bread line.
And to add to that I'm going to be 51 in a couple of months, I like most everybody here have been working since I was a kid. I started when I was 13 working for my dad. I have never been unemployed but there is a damn real possibility that I will be and very shortly if we dont pull our heads out of ass. I dont want government cheese all I want is the government to stop putting road blocks in our way.
I thought you were a self employed wildebeest rancher.
Not enough money at this point coming from my acreage to quit my real job.
same. my dad has had a quad bypass, is diabetic and old as fuck.
i am sorry to hear your dad smokes. my mom does. smoking pisses me the fuck off. i only ever had one uncle. good dude. he smoked, got COPD, hated life, killed himself with a pistol. smoking kills.
anyways, this whole scenario would be something totally unconcerning, even the financial stuff, because it will necessarily end and we will return to normal if it wasnt for it the stress of it getting our old ass families
Hopefully, I really hope this ends soon. I am so fucking tired of this shit. Literally worried about seeing my daughter, will I get her sick, will she get me sick... She lives with me, but was on spring break in Austin when this all went down. I have told her to stay away for a week now... she has been gone for 2... Just fucking tired of it all.
You and me both, my Dad is in Louisiana. He has been fighting 2 cancers for the past 5 years, is 73, has asthma. Basically I am happy he took things seriously and stopped seeing patients 2 weeks ago. Just hoping and praying that he makes it through this.
*edit oh yeah that stubborn fucker has 2 cancers and refuses to quit smoking.
Best of luck to you and yours.
Wishing your family the best as well. Hopefully all the old folks make it through.
I think Texas is about a week behind Louisiana maybe. We will see, lots of shelter in place orders have been happening in the Houston area past few days. I hope it stays this way, but worry it will not.
