Quarantine Diaries: Day 247

in coronavirus •  2 months ago 

In many of these #quarantinediaries posts, I’ve mentioned shortages and empty shelves I’ve seen seen in stores where I live (suburban Minneapolis). Today, something different. Fully stocked shelves at the Aldi in Chanhassen. They had everything I was looking for there. All the things that had vanished from the shelves in the early stages of the coronapocalypse were back. Even several hundred packets of yeast.

I’ve posted a lot of “doom and gloom” about supply chains, so a bit of good news for a change. 😁

If millions of citizens finish the year believing — without proof or even evidence — that the rightful leader of the nation has been deposed in a coup, the U.S. could face long-term instability and a deepening crisis of legitimacy.

”Apparently even the coronavirus is tired of President Donald Trump and his lackeys persistently trying to steal the election.”

White House officials have asked for content to be edited or removed which pushed back against numerous false claims about the election, including that Democrats are behind a mass election fraud scheme. CISA officials have chosen not to delete accurate information.
In particular, one person said, the White House was angry about a CISA post rejecting a conspiracy theory that falsely claims an intelligence agency supercomputer and program, purportedly named Hammer and Scorecard, could have flipped votes nationally. No such system exists, according to Krebs, election security experts and former U.S. officials.

Just in time for the second wave to hit and people to go crazy again. Hopefully the ones that hoarded stuff back in the Spring are all stocked up now and they don't ruin the fall for the rest of us!
