A) Nobody wants to die because of their urge to lose money at a Casino.

B) Nobody has any money to gamble with in the collapsed Trump Economy.

This will hurt the public schools that depend on gambling loss taxes. Schools should have looked at the money like a bonus and instead put it in a budget. They depend on it like a baby does a teat .

Sad the schools are run by horrible examples of the Dave Ramsey model.

Liberals are scared of a school choice for kids. Money has never bought the KC schools anything good. Maybe they can shut down for good and go to great schools. Or maybe the Easter bunny will help.

V-shaped recovery?

Nope.

It seems pretty clear that those who post here who hate Trump are made very happy at the thought of people suffering economically. The term, hateful jerks, comes to mind. They must be foreign because we should be sure that no American would ever wish ill on another American.

Nobody takes joy in this.

The fact is if Trump had even a halfway competent approach to the virus, the country would have still been open. He is to blame for the terrible response and results.

Because of the Trump failure; tens of thousands have died needlessly and millions lost jobs needlessly. All the delection in the world doesn't change that.

I have been to Hollywood 3 times since they partially reopened 2 wks ago. I had to park in the far away lot, stood in line outside for 1 to 2 hrs outside. Found that all of the most popular machines were locked down, only random unpopular machines were open for play. It was impossible to get a coke. I stayed for an average of 5 hrs each visit and I left exhausted havung had to stand outside for so long and then walked around the entire casino at least 3 times trying to find a Whales of Cash or Pompeii to play. I left disappointed, tired and felt it was not worth my effort and a complete waste of time.

Trump got the economy blazing a lot hotter than either Obama or Bush, then COVID hit it, thanks to China. If anyone can get it blazing again, it sure the hell isn't Biden. It's Trump. Despite his personality, he has a sharp business mind to help Americans get back to work. Maybe some people would rather sit on their asses, though.

The only thing Trump got blazing was the debt. He has added more debt in 4 years than Obama did in 8.

More jobs were added in Obama's last 3 years than Trump's first 3. Trump inherited a six year recovery and destroyed it. If he dealt with the virus properly, the economy would have never closed.

This is the guy that couldn't make money running a casino and filed bankruptcy multiple times. He has no idea how to run a business or an economy and has proven it with his utter failures. Nobody is buying this myth anymore.

The jobs that Obama added were low-paying part-time jobs. He joked about how manufacturing could never come back to America. He was a negative thinker who didn't put the energy into the office that it needed. Both the Dems and Republicans add to the debt at will. Bailing out people because of COVID isn't Trump's fault. If he didn't stop flights of Chinese residents to America, a lot more would have died here. He was called a racist for it, but now we know it was a smart move.

^^^ Trump stopped ZERO flights from China. None. If he did a ban, we wouldn't have over 2 million cases.

He increased and was putting up $1 trillion annual deficits before Covid-19. The additional trillions now would not have been needed if he addressed this early, like South Korea. His failure is tied to the spending.

Trump hasn't brought back jobs from overseas. Our trade deficit is higher than ever. More coal companies have gone under. Farming is a disaster because of trade wars that cut off markets and didn't generate new deals. Wages have still been flat.

You need to update your lame talking points. They are all lies and everyone knows it.

^^ You're full of BS. You ignore the unemployment stats showing Trump has helped minorities and women get jobs to levels never seen before. Coal use is always based on the economy. COVID shut down much of the economy, so coal will come back as the economy does.

After the Dems get their way on income taxes to pay for their socialist wet dreams, all workers' take-home pay will be cut in half. Their main goal is to divide America into sub-groups and then grovel to those groups with lies. After they get voted in, they screw over those groups by taxing them to death, letting illegals take the jobs of U.S. citizens, and letting violence in their Dem-run cities reach epic proportions.
