Nike informed landlords they can only pay half of April rent due for their nearly 400 US stores and will need to restructure leases for May and beyond. Right....

There are companies figuring out how they can help during this, and others figuring out how they can exploit this.

Unless millions die, he’s still going to defeat Biden easily. Pretty much no matter how bad Trump is, he somehow manages to win in life.


Agree sadly. If not even a completely botched pandemic response can hurt him, the uninspiring guy who can’t even make it through a full tv interview without awkwardly losing his train of thought mid-sentence is not going to beat him.

Dems have to convention someone. Trump will eat Biden’s lunch in a debate. Biden’s cognitive decline has been quite depressing to see play out in real time.

Cuomo probably has no interest in the job. He's too busy saving his citizens from Trump's idiocy to worry about running for president

If this was happening closer to the election, the Dems would be screwed. No one gives a horsefeathers about the presidential election right now. Primaries are postponed, there's no debates, no news coverage, etc.

So the DNC needs to take this time to get its horsefeathers together and come out guns a' blazin' this summer

COVID, ultimately. Though I do think he'll get re-elected.

I’d even let Hillary have one more shot before I willingly allowed Biden on this ballot.

The ads I've seen lately both from Biden and from Dem superpacs have been some of the most effective I've ever seen. Guns are already a blazin'. Granted, attacking Trump for his pandemic response should be like shooting fish in a barrel, but they have been pitch perfect.

I haven't seen any Biden ads (except online). That said, I'm not watching a ton of TV either

Hobby Lobby has (after refusing to close and having the CEO's "Prayer Warrior" wife talk to God about things) now started firing people (via email) with no insurance or severance. Guess God told them that they didn't need to take care of their workers anymore

horsefeathers them


Had an artist friend who worked in their frames department in college, and she pretty much sold all of her friends picture frames for like $10-$20 regardless of size. She was able to get away with it because the Hobby Lobby owners are so devoutly religious that they didn't believe in new technology so the pricing and inventory system was all done by hand with pen and paper. Because of this, they were unable to tell when anyone sold something at wholesale price instead of the markup because there was nothing in place to flag it in the system.

She sold frames that would normally retail for like $300-$400 for $20. Her way of sticking it to her horsefeathers employer who price gouged their customers.
