The $15 dollar an hour crowd is suddenly too scared to work? Didn’t want to work in the first place crowd. I suppose now with the “scare” they’ll want $25. Maybe it’s the promise of $1200 a month that has them quitting. Problem with that is it’s only for a couple months and it won’t be tax free.......

I don’t think they actually evar wanted more money for working, I think it’s about getting more free money from the socialist government that is what they truly want.

I'm sure the illegal drug business is doing well and no impact at all.

Telling people they don't have to pay their rent could start a melt-down in real estate prices; especially among all of the new apartments and condo's in downtown Kansas City. Many of which are highly leveraged.

Plus, who would want to build new apartments with the knowledge the government can order no rent payments at any time.

What's next; homeowners don't have to pay their mortgages?

The local government is killing capitalism. It appears; the Democrat Party will get their welfare / socialist state via authoritarian actions by local mayors.

Good fearmongering post since there are no official statistics on the rate right now.

Good job Tony. Keep everyone in fear. Fight the good fight. Promote dangerous public rallies. Yeah. Really smart.

1. President Trump – Early on bans foreign travel from China and Europe to the United States while the left-wing media, Joe Biden and Democrats called him a racist for doing so.

2. President Trump - Secure our borders to protect America from terrorism, illegal immigration AND virus pandemics. Who is entering our country? Are they healthy? Democrat Party wants globalization and open borders.

3. President Trump motivates CDC and FDA to eliminate red tape and bureaucracy to hasten approval of corona virus tests and potential vaccines.

4. President Trump - Issues National Health Emergency. Issues National Defense Act to mobilize industry to fight coronavirus (not done since the 1950 Korean War)

5. President Trump - Proposes eliminating student loan principal and interest payments to help students and their parents.

6. President Trump - Proposes elimination of Payroll Taxes to assist Americans financially through the crisis.

7. President Trump - Interest rates cut 50 basis points, Federal Reserve buying municipal and corporate bonds to help the markets and Americans.

8. President Trump - Proposes financial relief to Americans via $3,000 per family checks; $1,200 per adult to help during the corona versus impact on the economy.

9. Left-wing Media - Joe Biden - Democrat Party- Fear mongering, panic, hysteria and every effort to undermine / criticize President Trump's efforts in an effort to politicize corona virus. Media's fear mongering causes panic and destabilization of markets and economy. Democrat Party controlled media’s actions are traitorous and shameful destroying our economy for political purposes which ultimately hurts all Americans; whether poor, middle-class or rich.

The fact that the High Employment numbers so heavily touted last year were in food service and retail clerical (one step up from temping) wasn't mentioned, but now those chickens are coming home to roost!

Starting under Reagan, the only significant Export the USA has had was Jobs!

Remember? We were converting from "manufacturing" to a "service" economy so we could soar into the Future! So far our "soaring" has hit some pretty damn bad turbulence, as in 1986, 2008 and now 2020!

Damn Democrats, imagine if they'd been in the White House and if the GOP hadn't pushed through all those tax cuts for the Wealthy that preceded 1986, 2008 and 2020!

1205 clinton signed NAFTA. Clinton designated china as most favored nation. Clinton killed glass stegal and started the subprime mortgage mess.

Clinton's got super rich selling this nation.

Anonymous said...

1:26 is right. Bill and Hillary Clinton signed the NAFTA agreement and designated China as most favored nation and U.S. manufacturing jobs and related benefits went straight to Mexico and China.

Although, the Democrats have fought him bitterly, President Trump discontinued the NAFTA agreement and has been trying to level the economic playing field with China. Of course, the media and Democrats attacked President Trump saying he was starting a trade war with China.

Sure would be good to have the medical supply and pharmaceutical manufacturers return to the United States from China to combat future pandemics.

Joe Biden already has shown he can be bought off via Burisma / Ukrainian $$$. Biden will sell us out to the Chinese as well if elected to office.

Secure borders and President Trump's desire to bring manufacturing back from China to the United States would have helped tremendously with the Corona Virus pandemic. You just can't flip a switch and move manufacturing in a couple of weeks.

President Trump was elected to secure the United States borders. The Democrat Party has tried one conspiracy and coup after another to resist President Trump in this effort.

As the Democrat Party loses American voters they have to replenish their voters with illegal immigrants with promises of American taxpayer welfare and health care.

Hey, Libtards. Dear Leader Trump is in charge and has EVERYTHING about the Chinese(!) virus under control! Question nothing!


Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China.”

Feb. 2: “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China. It’s going to be fine.”

Feb. 24: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

Feb. 25: “CDC & my administration are doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus.”

Feb. 25: “I think that’s a problem that’s going to go away. They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”

Feb. 26: “We’re going very substantially down, not up.”

Feb. 27: “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

Feb. 28: “We’re ordering a lot of supplies. We’re ordering a lot of, uh, elements that frankly we wouldn’t be ordering unless it was something like this. But we’re ordering a lot of different elements of medical.”

March 2: “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don’t think that could have an impact, or much of an impact, on corona?”

March 2: “A lot of things are happening, a lot of very exciting things are happening and they’re happening very rapidly.”

March 4: “If we have thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work – some of them go to work, but they get better.”

March 4: “I never said people that are feeling sick should go to work.”

March 6: “I think we’re doing a really good job in this country at keeping it down… a tremendous job at keeping it down.”

March 6: “Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. And the tests are beautiful. They are perfect just like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. Right? This was not as perfect as that but pretty good.”

March 6: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it. Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

March 6: “I don’t need to have the numbers double b/c of 1 ship that wasn’t our fault.”

March 8: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on Coronavirus.”

March 9: “The Fake News media & their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power to inflame the Coronavirus situation.”

March 10: “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”

Here we go again, the H1N1 during Barry’s failed tenure produced millions sick and over a thousand dead before he lifted a finger, total sick after ONE YEARS TIME was 61 million sick and well over 12,000 dead, don’t even compare the two. It looks like the Chinese red death is going to be 100 times worse than anything Barry and the dimwits had to deal with. Guess what? There’s still no cure for the swine flu and you effing morons are mad at Trump for not having a cure for the Chinese red death after two months, you people are completely mental.

Nobody's thrilled that the market is crashing, but the fact remains it is, and every time Trump speaks it gets worse.

Can you at least face facts?

^^^ When you face the fact that it tickles you pussy pink that it is, and that the dimwits are responsible for most of it. When was the last time you saw a dimwit come out and try to calm the public? You haven’t so that makes them just as responsible, when a party comes out and says we’re doomed that ain’t good, your party hasn’t lifted a finger to help one bit, all they want is to be in control and if this is how they act I and millions of Americans don’t want any part of it. The dimwit party is the party of doom and gloom, show one ounce of american spirit and get behind the Prez and the american people.

You won’t because you hate America so...
