What is your plan b? The media says that this ordeal will last for 18+ months? I'm calling bullshit. This fear mongering crap has to stop.

We already lost saint Patrick's day, a busy day for us drivers. What's next? 4th of July? Labor day? thanksgiving?? How about new years eve and watching the ball drop in times square? Will the presidential elections be postponed?

More importantly..... THE NFL PRESEASON IS IN 7 MONTHS!!!! If they cancel football, someone is getting their ass beat.

Coronavirus, WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT FROM US??? You already took the NBA, NHL, and MLB hostage. You already shut down the casinos and bars. What more do you want???

I'm home every night, bored as shit because there ain't shit to do 😑. Now the orange man is telling me this might go on for another year and a half??????

^ Agreed. In this day and age, you have to try to have an alphabet list of back-up plans.

If this, then that. If that, then this. If neither that nor this, then those. If neither these, those, or them, then _____ . You have to try to always have a flow chart going. No job or industry seems to be 100% safe since 9/11 or the Great Recession.

I actually had several streams of income dry up at once. Not in dire straights, but it just got a lot tighter. As an investor I have been playing the market a bit more. Very tricky right now but selling the market short has been profitable. This of course means nothing unless one can sustain their luck over time and pull their profits from the market. We shall see.

More importantly, Billionaire investor Bill Ackman Tweeted a dire warning to President Trump about the danger of these rolling shutdowns lasting 18 mos. He makes the point that if we continue as we are corporate America will go bankrupt. Ackman went on CNBC to make an emotional plea that we must shutdown the entire country for 30 days to virtually kill the virus off.

The orange man hasn't come close to getting it right yet. He barely knows anything is going on. No reason to think that will change.
