So here is the deal.... We all need to remember the malaise that the country was in with Obama. Hillary was a HORRIBLE candidate (and person) and we can only imagine what a mess todays life would be with her at the helm....with 2 or 3 supreme court picks no less.
I have to agree, Trump is a narcissist and megalomaniac. You kind of have to be to think you can be president....but he clearly took it to another level. At the time, we (the country) wanted to shake up the system....and boy did we. My thought on this whole CV19 deal..... If Trump would have come out right away, and explained how bad this could get....people would have rioted, and many may have been killed needlessly. I view this as a "boil the frog" strategy....which IMO, is probably best. Every day come out with a little more bad news, then a little more, etc....so it will be bad, but at least the country is basically primed for this.
As for the monetary system.....if this helicopter drop of $1-2K a month doesnt show how worthless the fed and this system is, we dont deserve to be in a capitalist country. Speaking of, I am going to write my senators and request that ANY company that borrowed or issued debt for a stock buyback in the last 7 years (or whatever) should NOT get a bailout. I mean really.....Boeing, who screwed the pooch with the 737MAX, AND issued $100B to buy back stock, wants a $60M bailout. Oh HELL no! Let them go BK, sell the company at auction, and clear this debt mountain out once and for all. This is going to be ugly, but I think the debtberg is more of a threat to our long term survival than CV19.
And really, what ever happened to keep a cash reserve (for individuals and business) in CASE there is an unexpected emergency like this? I know, lets hand out cash to the irresponsible and screw everyone. Nice
