    Getting real desperate. Donald was able to destroy Obama's economy in his first term. And you're rooting him on. lmao

    Until corona has been passed around and we have to go back under full lockdowns because too many are getting sick (our number daily cases is already going up here). Looking at economic recovery now is just further evidence humans do not grasp the fact human time is entirely on hold. We are on plague time. Amd the plague is spreading now with little to slow it down.

    I guess if the virus returns in full force you can thank the protesters.

    The lockdowns are what destroyed the economy. Prior to coronavirus, we had the best economy in decades.

    Donald inherited Obama's economy. Just like Obama inherited Bush's economy.
    The lockdowns weren't 100% necessary. Only if the virus was spreading like wildfire.
    Because of incompetent leadership and unpreparedness, we had to resort to shutting down.

    We currently have over 100,000 PREVENTABLE deaths and there is nothing in sight (light at the end of the tunnel) to stop it from increasing.

    It only took 1 term to destroy America's economy due to incompetency. Gotta love capitalist policy!

    -Tax breaks for wealthy (not middle class)
    -Safety laws removed
    -Ridiculous spending
    -Safety net cuts
    -Corporate welfare increase
    -Oversight completely destroyed

    I don't discount the idea that's been going around, that the psychological toll of the lockdowns might be an ingredient in the current strife. It was asking a tremendous amount from a culture that is based on non-stop growth. It was like asking an extreme socialite to flip a switch and become a zen monk, as if our public was some wise and sophisticated individual that could instantly imbibe vast teleological changes. Therefore, if the virus literally knocks us out of this current extremely hair-raising situation, that would almost be a blessing. No I don't think I'm kidding, and didn't expect to ever write something like that, but there it is. If at this hair-raising point, the virus would literally subdue the country, maybe it would stop being on fire ??

    True. But facts are facts. We have a plague, it's killed a lot of people so far, and there is still no treatment or vaccine. We dont even really know if it will make you critically ill or kill you. Probably not, but the serious illness risk for everyone is considerably higher than it is for death.
    Despite the known risks people haven't been subdued. Around here it started around Memorial day. Amd now this last Wednesday we added 107 cases. 20 some the next day. Over 50 on Friday. We were seen new cases in the teens prior to.

    And the President, and (mostly Republican) governors who want to move too quickly, and to party people who just don't care, and to everybody else who simply does not understand what it means to have a highly transmissible virus in our midst, one that can overwhelm the defenses of a lot of vulnerable people.

    Don't you know anything about economics?
    The President creates the economy, which immediately sailed
    into new heights of productivity the very day Obama assumed
    office. Trump promptly destroyed it in his first week.

    Protestors, church goers, memorial day partiers, people going out and gathering and eating at restaurants and clustering here and there and wearing no masks.
