Or as Mornac will rename this thread in November, the Joe Biden Depression Update.

Of course and as usual it will take a democrat to dig out of the hole a republican put us in.

Who could have known electing dunces like George W Bush and con artists like Donald J Trump would result in catastrophe?

--It's written right at the top of every post, notoc. I thought you'd have figured that out by now.

seems like the Obama recovery from the George W Bush Great Recession is over and we are now in the Donald J Trump Great Depression.

They are in a real predictament because they want to be angry, they need to blame someone.   But even with Trump at the top having had ignored and downplaying the virus for SEVENTY DAYS, having fired the pandemic response team and cutting its funding they can't be angry at Trump so they blame the governors, particularly if democratic, for putting quarantines in place in an attempt to save lives.

And these many of the same people who claim life is their number one issue - the rule about them only caring about fetus life holds firm.

I sympathize with you 100% Peps (although I think you already knew that). I occassionally check in on the "Then and Now" feature on this site. They'll take an old photograph of an intersection from decades past, then go to the same place today and take a photograph at the exact same angle and let the reader weep over the loss.

I think I may have done this post before  ;D  yeah I like that kind of thing.   I could go on an on with just this town.

I never got to see the downtown of the town I grew up near because it was demolished before I was born.   This bothers me to this day  :'(

Downtown by the river went downhill due to shifts in transportation.. from water to rail to auto and truck left the waterfront without traffic.  Then loss of manufacturing then loss of retail (suburban malls, a typical story).   

But, it's an unfathomable solution to tear down thousands of solid buildings built by people over generations by hand with bricks, granite and cobblestone.   But they did it to get rid of what was mostly abandoned and blighted when it happened.

here is the same spot today - even the road no longer exists!
