I guess we’re all supposed to be celebrating that our useless politicians have agreed on a stimulus package to provide “relief” from the government-imposed destruction of our economy.
But that’s a hard pass from me. This is nothing to celebrate.
Nine hundred billion dollars – the majority of which is pork-laden bullshit laundered through government.
But, don’t worry, folks. The people still getting their $175K a year salaries will be tossing you $600!! Yup. That’ll more than make up for being forced out of your job nine months ago because you’re “non-essential.”
That’d probably cover the cost of just one of Nancy Pelosi’s salon visits.
Or a case of her favorite ice cream.
They’re also doling out billions to universities – many of whom already have endowments in the tens of billions.
If you feel like a chump, it’s because Congress is treating you like a chump.
This so-called stimulus will stimulate nothing.
Government spending will not reverse the economic devastation caused by government interference in our economy.
The only thing that will reverse this government-imposed economic devastation is to lift every single lockdown and let Americans reopen their businesses and get back to work.
You know what will aid people in paying their rent? Being able to actually go to work and earn the money to pay rent.
The only stimulus Congress should pass is loans for small businesses to make up for the crippling devastation imposed on them by imperious governors coupled with reopening the country.
So long as some states remain closed, this pork-laden BS stimulus will stimulate nothing.
And don’t give me the “at least they’re doing something” argument.
If you set your own house on fire, sure, dousing the flames with gasoline is doing something. But the “something” you are doing is only making things worse.
Americans don’t need a federal stimulus; they need the lockdowns to end.
Nothing stimulates the economy better than freeing the economy from government intrusion.
But our garbage politicians don’t want to reopen the country. Why would they? These lockdowns have given them unprecedented power over our lives. Nothing satisfies these people like forcing once free Americans into government dependence.
As I said the other day, they want us to be timid and industrious sheep while they play the role of Shepherd.
The COVID pandemic was the best thing that ever happened to these people. Their rich donors are getting richer while we rags and tatters are forced to grovel to them for “relief.”
And if you think the availability of a vaccine will change things, think again. The goal posts are once again shifting.
Already that media darling Anthony Fauci is warning that getting vaccinated doesn’t mean you can go back to life as it was.
A week ago, Jesse Kelly asked this question:
The answer to Jesse’s question was “less than a day.”
Last week, the UK announced they have been hit with a new strain of COVID and this past weekend they once again locked down completely.
Jesse Kelly has been warning us for months that once the government took this power unto itself, it would be loath to give it up. They will always find another reason to keep us under their thumb.
The US Pandemic response has done far more permanent damage to the country than the pandemic itself.
We’re killing off the lifeblood of our economy, driving the nation further and further into debt. And like the vultures they are, politicians are exploiting it all to amass more power and control over our lives.
But, hey. At least you get six hundred dollars!
Twenty-five million for Democracy and Gender programs in Pakistan?! Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me?!
