Dangerous Liberals & AWESOME Work From Home Gear!

Liberal Logic Update

Stay crazy liberal Democrats!  (and dangerous in this case)

A Democratic state representative in Ohio said she “can’t take it anymore” and vowed to refer President Trump to the International Criminal Court for “crimes against humanity” over Trump’s promotion of a drug that has not been conclusively proven to fight the coronavirus.

State Rep. Tavia Galonski tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow,” Galonski said. “Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one.”

It looks like someone is looking for their “15 minutes of fame.”

Guess what Tavia – more data is coming out every day regarding the effectiveness of the drug and its positive impact on the coronavirus.  Its been reported (by non-liberal press) that the doctors who routinely prescribe this drug for other conditions such as Lupus are shaking their heads over the sensationalism the liberal media and liberal Democrats are making over the treatment.

Your liberal actions are not only disgusting but dangerous to the American people.

Team Trump

Reporters at the White House press briefing on Sunday repeatedly asked President Donald Trump why he chose not to wear a medical mask.

Donald Trump Previews More White House Departures: 'No ...

One reporter, who was not wearing a mask, noted the former Vice President Joe Biden said he would start wearing a mask outdoors, and he asked President Trump if he and the White House task force would start wearing masks.

“Are we getting to the point where we might see the members of the coronavirus task force also wear face coverings?” the reporter asked.

Trump said the advisory was voluntary and that he would have no problem with anyone wearing a mask.

Another reporter asked Dr. Anthony Fauci why he was not wearing a mask.

Trump grinned as Fauci responded that the main reason to wear a mask was to protect sick individuals from spreading the virus.

“I had a test today, and it was negative,” Fauci said shortly.

Market Minders

A legislative package of another round of stimulus could be produced by mid-May.

COVID-19: The Birth of the Emergency Economic Stimulus ...

According to Wall Street executives with direct knowledge of the matter, there is general agreement in the White House and among congressional leaders in both parties that more spending is needed to prevent the economy from tumbling into a depression amid the widespread virus-related lockdowns and quarantines that have caused massive unemployment and a sharp decline in business activity.

White House and congressional officials are signaling to senior Wall Street executives that the next round of coronavirus stimulus is taking shape and that a package of spending and possible tax cuts could add another $1.5 trillion to the more than $2 trillion already being spent.

Interesting Stuff

There’s one place to easily see the number of people working from home – home office equipment prices.

For instance, I went online to order a 3rd monitor in order to make work flow more efficient as I have numerous programs running at the same time.  I’ve been very happy with my last monitor purchase which was a HP 21.5” for $90, purchased roughly 2-3 months ago.  As I went pulled up the same monitor, they are now selling for $160!

Home office equipment prices have gone through the roof!  Pure supply & demand in action.

Remote workers have spent a few weeks hunched over laptops on kitchen counters, dining tables and couches — and they are facing another month, at the very least, of working remotely — many are investing in products to be more productive while working in what can be an unprofessional (and pretty uncomfortable) setting.

Office Depot’s most popular products at the moment include desk chairs, as well as webcams, printers, laptops and display monitors. The office supply chain has even rolled out “work from anywhere” bundles, ranging from a $279.45 “furniture essentials” kit that includes a computer desk, desk chair, dry erase board and desk lamp, and running up to a “professional working bundle” that features a wireless printer and keyboard, LED monitor, USB mini dock and a headset for $758.95. And Best Buy  has seen laptops, monitors and webcams flying off shelves, which are key in letting people do their work (including schoolwork) from home.

Adobe Analytics reported this week that orders for computers, including laptops and desktops, increased 40% between March 11-25, compared with March 1-10. 

But there’s also been a run on some unexpected products for conducting business — particularly those related to the surge in videoconference calls as more meetings have been moved online. Zoom has seen its daily users more than quadruple, while Microsoft’s Teams communications suite counted 44 million daily active users on March 19, which was up 12 million from just the week before. Microsoft has also reported more than 40 million daily active Skype users, up 70% from a month ago.

So Natan Edelsburg, the COO of Muck Rack, dropped $90 (including shipping) on a green screen that attaches to his desk chair, which he can use to drop in digital background images rather than broadcast his one-bedroom Manhattan apartment. His Apple MacBook Air doesn’t support Zoom’s virtual backgrounds during video chats, he explained to MarketWatch, so he bought this workaround. 

Now he doesn’t have to worry about whether his webcam is picking up any clutter or anything behind him — although he looks pretty ridiculous behind the scenes with a giant green bubble around him.

“My wife says I look like ‘The Wizard of Oz,’” he laughed. “It’s definitely brightened up my day a lot.”

Edelsburg says it’s a conversation starter. “It’s a great way to lighten the mood and the room right now,” he said, admitting that he has projected himself standing in front of a Delorean, like in “Back to the Future,” and even used a virtual backdrop of Muck Rack’s own Soho office, which he says was his employees’ favorite.

In addition to office equipment, retailers are reporting a surge in sales of  professional looking tops AND increase of pajama type bottoms.

Just don’t forget and stand up during the videoconference if you happen to be sporting a tie up top but are chillin with just your tighty whiteys for work “shorts.”
