Meetings, normally via Skype or Zoom, are the one bit of corporate interpersonal interaction left for many in these ongoing months of the COVID-19 pandemic panic. They’re important! So, remember to change out of your new-normal businesswear and into your approved meeting attire. 😆
While the rank and file among the Democrats is full of True Believers, Fellow Travelers, and Useful Idiots, the career Democrat politicians are something quite different. And, due to that fundamental difference, they blame President Trump for everything and anything, especially those things they, themselves, did or brought into being.
These sorts are career Democrats and they’re just doing their jobs as they seem them. Understand that they think, not completely wrongly, that their jobs are to stay in office. Anything they do in the course of that is important to them only in the context of that sole purpose.
Hence, since blaming President Trump and vilifying him seems to resonate with their constituencies, they consider doing that essential to their jobs.
Yeah, we can all forget about suits and ties. We can say goodbye to sport coats or blazers with a button-down shirt and slacks. We’ll even need to leave our polo shirts and chinos in the closet. The days of the various businesswear dress codes are over.
Yes, the new businesswear for Coronavirus and beyond is and will be pajamas, a comfy robe, and slippers. There’s no point in anything, given that telecommuting / remote work is currently “required” for most people and that is not going to change even after the panic over this disease fades in favor of the media’s next trick.
This Is Our New “Reality”
Don’t expect things to go back to how they were before. This is our new normal. There may be a short term rush back to the office, but it won’t last for most of us. We’ll fairly quickly be heading back home to telecommute.
Companies in several verticals have now learned that they can have mostly remote workers and they’ll quickly realize that it is cheaper and more profitable to continue this.
And there’s even the perfect, recurring rationale for it. COVID-19 is functionally “just” a severe seasonal flu. So, next year’s flu season has just as much “need” for self-quarantining, social distancing, and sheltering in place to some extent. The seasonal flu does, after all, kill 12,000 – 61,000 Americans every year and hospitalizes another 140,000 – 810,000.
So yeah, better for the companies’ bottom line and easily rationalized as a responsible and compassionate course of action. Get used to your jammies, robe, and slippers, my friends. 😉
That’s the blessed truth! The uphill battle that the Democrats face going into the 2020 elections is the growing and greatening American economy under- and somewhat because of President Trump. It’s really hard to successfully oust a POTUS who is actually doing what the American people say that the President should be both doing and focusing upon.
Then, I’m pretty sure that those running the Democrat Party both know this and expected the problem from the get-go. Such knowledge and expectation would explain their ongoing coup attempts through means both outside the law and the electorate.
These are the signs of our times, especially these election times. The Republicans stand for jobs, whereas the Democrats stand for mobs. Hence, Americans have a simple but stark choice before them right now. We can take the first, best step in stopping the Left, or we can meekly surrending to cowardice and allow our domestic enemies a victory over our nation, our culture, and our people.
No not be fooled; do not be complacent; do not cleave to false hopes that you will not have to act. Our democracy and the very foundations of our nation are under existential threat right now, and all it will take for evil to win is for Americans to do nothing.
