Crazy, inept Mayor poll. My city Mayor is...   The Serious You: How Current Events Affect You

Started Nov-23 by Showtalk; 5149 views.

Destroying their livelihoods. There will be a number of bankruptcies filed and so many people destitute, and then bank failures and a whole domino effect not seen since the Great Depression - and probably will dwarf the economic ruin of the Depression by orders of magnitude.

Unless they move to cities that are not bankrupt in states that are still viable,

They are, by design, destroying the small and medium size businesses.  Small and Medium size businesses are what makes the United States what we are, not the big box mega stores.  All countries that are free have a middle class.  They want the middle class in the United States gone, and they mean GONE.

You will catch this plandemic if you go into a maw & paw's grocery store, but not Wal-Mart.  You will catch this flu if you go into Ms. Janes cafe, but not Nancy Pelosi's vineyard.  You can catch this flu if you don't wear a mask, but the moment you start to eat or drink, the virus will back off and wait until you are finished.

We have to unite and stop complying.  Stop being afraid of a flu.  Millions already are starving to death because of our choices in the United States to coward in our homes.  The United States is on that chopping block.  We fall the world falls, and the world knows it.

Get off mainstream media, they are lying to you.  They are also playing us against one another.  """I'm not wearing this mask to protect myself, but to protect others..."""  Total propaganda bs, total!!  Masks don't work, what they do is cause the wearer to breath in their own toxins and eventually get bacterial pneumonia,  Which Dr. Fauci knows!  He did the research back in, I believe, 2008, that he and his research team proved most all died of bacterial pneumonia during the Spanish Flu, because of masks.  Why do you think back in March, he was against them.  Then he was ordered to say wear them...

Also, what happens when you deprive a baby or small child of oxygen?  That is bad for an adult, but a small child.  You are causing brain damage.

We are being told we are NOT essential, so we need to lock ourselves in our homes. The billionaires have become trillionaires during this lockdown.  They are considered essential?  Really!?!  The Non essential humans in our country are losing everything, and I mean everything they worked their backsides off for, all because of the cowards in our country.  Everyone is essential!

And you all that are on Social Security and pensions, that you worked your backsides off for, will loose them.  If no one is working and paying taxes, since we know the trillionaires stole that money, you are going to also go hungry.  And if you pay property taxes (permanent renter), you will be thrown out of your house, even though it is paid for.  If you have to pay property taxes, you don't own your home.

And, if you are a Christian, you need to worry about your soul, NOT your body.

Again, some of what you said is right and some is extreme and not proven.  You are entitled to your own beliefs, but I doubt anyone is going to get into the details with you.  I agree they are destroying local businesses and economies. Whether it is intentional or because they can’t see beyond the moment to analyze future probabilities, but either way they are proving to be inept in many areas.

It is all extreme, but it is a fact and not an opinion.  They know exactly what they are doing, exactly.  Did you see the stimulus package?  Just printing the money will further destroy the dollar, but giving OUR money to all these foreign countries.  That right there should piss off the American people.

Did ya know they gave more to Black Lives Matter and Antifa, then they will give to all the American people combined.  Give that thought!

They call American patriots that protest peacefully, white supremist, even though there is every color in those crowds that are protesting.  They label it as rioters.  Yet, they call BLM and Antifa protesters as they burn down cities and murder innocent people.

Wake up Americans...

The ones who can afford to move probably had enough savings to do so.

Others moved anyway, and walked away from houses and cars and other stuff they were deep underwater on. They'll file bankruptcy on all that debt just before they get back on their feet in their new red state home, so they can shed those millstones around their necks.

Those who are geographically bound - the bar and restaurant owners who were forced to close and couldn't re-open still have to file bankruptcy on the staggering amounts of back rent owed, the supplies they couldn't sell, the fixtures, and all that..

So even with migration which might be the biggest human migration seen inside the US since the Great Depression as people fled the Dust Bowl, there will still be a lot of bankruptcies because so many people were living lives that were all fueled by easy credit. Now that that gravy train has de-railed, the bills are due and they have no way to pay even a fraction of them.

There will be a lot, sadly.

I also suspect that without some kind of permanent student loan relief, there will be a tsunami of defaults and the creation of a new permanent underclass that is barred from assistance when that bartender job evaporated while trying to actually get into a career that uses that overpriced degree.

It may actually be that, while short term expensive, student loan relief might reduce the boiler stress and keep it from exploding although we lose the head of steam and the work that we theoretically could have gotten out of it.

It would be simply an acknowledgement of the reality that the system is broken and has been for some time, and it was a mistake to weld the safety valve of bankruptcy shut on the student loan boiler because the banksters were annoyed by the noise of the steam escaping through the safety valve popping off.

Because welding the safety valve shut DOES stop the steam popping off. But the purpose of the safety valve is to sacrifice some of that steam to keep from blowing up the boiler which is far worse and much more irreversible than letting a few people way over their head file bankruptcy on crushing student loan debt.

Now if the universities that were selling naive 18 year olds (and their parents - more parents staring down the barrel of retirement are also struggling  with their kids' student loans that they were bullied into co-signing for. Worse, there are parents on the hook for student loans left after a despondent student chose suicide as their escape, thus giving the hapless parent another cruel kick in the teeth.

Hopefully Covid really shined a spotlight on this, which is not a new surprise but an ongoing situation for more than 20 years, that the student loan racket has bought off Congress to ignore, because slavery is quite profitable if you can tamp down the rebellion of said slaves and beat them enough to make them work harder.

Until, as Charlton Heston as Moses famously portrayed in that scene in "The Ten Commandments" with the bricks and the scale - that the starving slaves produce few bricks. The dead (clunk of brick in one scale pan) produce none.

They are going to forgive student loans, so the taxpayers will pick up the tab.  A whole new generation will either get free college at grossly expensive universities or they will make other choices.

Are they still giving out jobs like popcorn? When I was in school my mother desperately needed a job and would apply for various gov't jobs. She would be in top 2 at interview but never got hired. Her competition were women on welfare with GED's. She was always told she was "over qualified". It seemed like being on welfare opened the door to being hired.
