The election is far from being over. Votes are being still being counted and re-counted. Investigations into alleged voter fraud are ongoing in many key states with new allegations being launched daily. In the meanwhile. We wait.
But not Joe Biden. No sir. He’s wiping the sleep from his eyes and not waiting on an official invitation to swan dive into the shark-infested water awaiting his splash. The guy has a plan! Albeit, a fairly foolish one.
Small business owners across America have suffered the sacrifices they’ve been forced to endure, whether necessary or not, throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. Blue states, which only stands to reason, have been hit the hardest, with many mom-and-pops not making the cut. When will they learn, if ever?
If Grandpa Joe and his trusty hombre’s happen to get their way, it’ll be the most devastating dust storm to ever sweep this nation. There will be no more small businesses. Storefronts will be littered with “For Lease” signs, but there will be no takers.
Not only will restaurants have no diners, but even if they could have, they would have no employees. The same thing applies to bars. Small retail shops. The list goes on.
You see, Joe Biden wants to pay every person in America to stay home for one month to six weeks while the economy burns in hell. There you have it. That’s his plan.
Dr. Michael Osterholm, a newly and prematurely appointed member of Joe Biden’s coronavirus task force, actually, yet unbelievably, said without a stutter, “We could pay people to lose their jobs.” Let that sink in for a moment. Do ya’ see a problem with this?
In no uncertain terms, if Joe Biden takes the presidency, America will witness the most horrendous big government takeover ever seen in its almost two and a half-century history. Big brother will control everything. It’s all that will remain. We’ll have the money the government will be graciously giving us to grow callouses on our butts, but for how long? All good things must end. And they will.
As director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, Osterholm believes there is but one way and one way only to get this stuff under control. He’s calling for a full-fledged lock, stock, and barrel shutdown. Lock her down. Solitary confinement, if you will. “We need to lockdown to drive the infection levels lower.”
It’s a bit peculiar how Neel Kashkari, president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank, has gleefully voiced his full favor of the proposal. As a guy who’s working for the Federale’s, we all know the chump knows better.
But Kashkari is underestimating the will of the American people. Of course, being a Fed, he’s under the false assumption that if the Feds have full control of the economy, they can then control our very human behavior.
At this stage, it should become obvious how Biden’s plan of shutting her down goes way deeper than its initial apparent simplicity.
Collectively, the dynamic duo of Kashkari and Osterholm provided the following words in their defense.
“To successfully drive down our case rate to less than one per 100,000 people per day, we should mandate sheltering in place for everyone but the truly essential workers. By that, we mean people must stay at home and leave only for essential reasons: food shopping and visits to doctors and pharmacies while wearing masks and washing hands frequently.”
“According to the Economic Policy Institute, 39% of workers in the United States are in essential categories. The problem with the March-to-May lockdown was that it was not uniformly stringent across the country. For example, Minnesota deemed 78% of its workers essential.”
“To be effective, the lockdown has to be as comprehensive and strict as possible. If we aren’t willing to take this action, millions more cases with many more deaths are likely before a vaccine might be available.”
We’re forced to ask if anyone happened to notice the third-quarter GDP report? It reflected the highest growth ever recorded at 33.1% annualized. Oh yeah. And did you see where unemployment has fallen to below 7 percent? And did you know that every world-leading economist said that was impossible to do until sometime next year?
Thanks for your interest Mr. Biden, but it would appear that America is doing just fine and dandy handling things without your terrific new plan. Go back to sleep.
