I know of three near me in Calif. I worked with/for one of the restaurant owners for about four years before he opened.<snip>There has already been a bunch of mom and pop places close
If the msm somehow gets Biden elected in November, covid19 will miraculously go away
NM governer with two last names sat in her throne like chair and told us because there had been 6 deaths at the begining of the week, that all restaurants had to go back to carry our or dining out side. Afternoon temps are hanging around 95* + and lots of places don't have space to set up for outdoor dining. There has already been a bunch of mom and pop places close , waiting to see if a rumored Fuck you from the restaurants happens. That keep talking about new cases what they are doing is equivocating those who test positive as a new case. Lots of people test positive but show no symptoms.
I am no math major but even I can see the number of positive cases compared to the tested is small something like .0357% and death rate is infenstessmal .036%
No fucking shit! Then everything opens up, then a big stimulus gets sent out, then he gets a Nobel prize for curing 'Rona AND setting off the biggest economic boom since the great depression.
I want to share with you the kinds of conversations that I have with people from around the world lately. Maybe that will give Americans a window into how bewildered, baffled, and horrified the world is by what they’ve let their country become. If you’re American, you may want to say, “But I’m not stupid!” Fair enough, you may not be. But the entire world can hardly be wrong either. The question is whether in America, stupidity has become a kind of institution, way of life, cultural value — whether it’s the only system left that governs anything at all. The question isn’t about you — the well-meaning, intelligent, good American. It’s about systemic stupidity, going thermonuclear.
Elvistwat, you'll need to try harder. Didn't we already cover how the US doesn't give a fuck what the rest of the world thinks? We don't look out of our window at the world in judgement like everyone else.
With great freedom comes great responsibility. Personal responsibility is what has collapsed in the US over the past 50 years. Your numbers are just side effects. Personal responsibility is learned from tight family structures and/or church. Half of Americans don't have either. An alarming number of these people don't want the other half to have either.
In America, stupidity is a right and financial stability is a choice. If you were to ask the 80% of Americans who live paycheck to paycheck if they could make better financial decisions in their daily lives, they would say yes. However, they choose not to, because being "poor" in the US isn't too bad.
80% of Americans now live paycheck to paycheck. 70% have less than $1000 in savings. 70% expect their kids to live worse lives. Life expectancy is falling. Real incomes are shrinking. Suicides are skyrocketing. Depression and loneliness are soaring. The old can’t afford to retire, and the young can’t afford to start families. The middle class has imploded, and the ranks of the poor have swollen. What does all this really say?
America is a rich country that effectively became a poor one — in the space of a generation. Is it any surprise that this sudden, unexpected, historic collapse would massively, catastrophically destabilize society — and give rise to fascism?
Too much credit spending, individual poor choices....Lines of newer vehicles waiting for free food handouts, new $60 k pu trucks . Adjust to changes or suffer.....
So sad. You just keep running into that invisible wall, while your government fucks you in the ass dry.
We make it too easy to live way outside our means. Immediate gratification, lack of responsibility, and lack of self-discipline are just a few things that are a major problem...
You see these same type of people in all these ‘check your credit score’ commercials. If you need to check your score constantly, or at all, then you’re doing it wrong .
