Day 1 of quarantine:
empty streets and closed stores everywhere. The main square in front of city hall Oakland was full of homeless people. A police officer walked right by a homeless just grinning away. BART was empty, maybe 5 people on my car at rush hour. Walking through SF homeless everywhere, but all stores shut. Liquor stores and fast food are still open.
My hot take: the 'lockdown' of the Bay Area is extreme virtue signalling by the usual suspects. It was rolled out hastily with little planning or concern for consequence by mayor London Breed. A little backstory, right now SF city govt. is under investigation by FBI for extreme levels of corruption. It seems the city was being run by the now arrested director of public works: Mohammed Nuru. London Breed recently disclosed she had been his mistress for a number of years before becoming mayor after mayor Ed Lee suddenly died. The FBI probe had expanded to the Dept of Building Inspection, which issues all building permits in the city. The level of corruption was off the scale, connecting mainland Chinese property developers, corrupt dem party hacks, the mafia (via Nuru's bagman Nick Bovis at Lefty O'Douls Bar), and likey connects back to the offices of Feinstein and Pelosi. London Breed is a dumb bimbo, she did not come up with this lockdown on her own, it was the idea of her handlers.
The middle class and working poor and being financially destroyed by the shutdown. Massive job loss after only one day. Don't believe anything on MSM. Will keep you updated on the REAL situation.
