"You get to pick your poison: you either go before a firing squad, or you get the end of the rope," Griffin said.
That's a lot of bullets. At least, you can re-use the rope many times before it wears out.

It's just incredible how corrupt things have become, and how so many people don't seem to care long as they can be racist assholes fondling their bibles and guns. There should be guillotines on every street corner by now. <ng>

And agreed about the paywalls.

Not a good time to be a serf:
COVID-19 Is Also a Reallocation Shock Jose Maria Barrero, Nicholas Bloom, Steven J. Davis NBER Working Paper No. 27137
Issued in May 2020
NBER Program(s): Economic Fluctuations and Growth, Labor Studies, Public Economics


Drawing on firm-level expectations at a one-year forecast horizon in the Survey of Business Uncertainty (SBU), we construct novel, forward-looking reallocation measures for jobs and sales. These measures rise sharply after February 2020, reaching rates in April that are 2.4 (3.9) times the pre-COVID average for jobs (sales). We also draw on special questions in the April SBU to quantify the near-term impact of the COVID-19 shock on business staffing. We find 3 new hires for every 10 layoffs caused by the shock and estimate that 42 percent of recent layoffs will result in permanent job loss. Our survey evidence aligns well with anecdotal evidence of large pandemic-induced demand increases at some firms, with contemporaneous evidence on gross business formation, and with a sharp pandemic-induced rise in equity return dispersion across firms. After developing the evidence, we consider implications of our evidence for the economic outlook and for policy responses to the pandemic. Unemployment benefit levels that exceed worker earnings, policies that subsidize employee retention, occupational licensing restrictions, and regulatory barriers to business formation will impede reallocation responses to the COVID-19 shock.

It's never really a good time to be a serf, but without some kind of guaranteed minimum income, it would seem Trump's going to be doing a lot of shooting soon enough.

Getting closer for sure. Trouble is they're pointing in all different directions.

Saw this video yesterday, showing it was a couple of white guys who started the torching in Minneapolis ...
