Has anyone else noticed that Democratic governors of mainly blue states have shut down our economy, achieving their political goals? They have even changed primary election dates, as Kentucky to June 23, even while predicting a COVID-19 resurgence in the coming months. Closed down and singled out gun stores in particular. Now, thanks to brilliant foresight, Kentuckians thrown onto unemployment rolls face the total loss of benefits by mid-summer.

The federal House of Representatives, Democrat-led, is proposing another ill-timed and bloated stimulus bill of $4 trillion on top of the trillions of dollars that have already been spent in the effort to mitigate damage done to our national economy and the expansion of our national debt. Included within the $4 trillion Democrat poison-pill bill are gun-control measures and other political, money-squandering pet Democrat projects.

President Donald Trump's flourishing American economy is being trashed completely because of a Chinese virus and Democratic dictator policies that might ultimately lead to a complete economic collapse. Printing more money only leads to hyperinflation and depression. China now holds most of our national debt, which we can barely pay the interest on.

Even though I and my household are at high risk of death from COVID-19, America must go back to work! All Americans at risk must protect themselves, as best we can. If America's economy fails, we all fail and the consequences will be catastrophic. Conditions like malnutrition, starvation, preventable deaths, bodies in the streets and soaring crime rates could be the new face of America.

When all of this is over and thousands of elderly and disabled have died, I'm wondering which president will take credit for saving Social Security.

Enough Already

It won't be a president but several Democrat governors may take credit because they FORCED nursing homes in their states to take COVID 19 patients. I call this this forced euthanasia. It should not surprise you because they don't value life there unless it is an illegal alien. They will abort your child up to birth and kill your grandmother without thinking twice.

EXCERPT:

The NYT found 14 states where more than half of total deaths occurred in facilities for the elderly. It was 55 percent in Connecticut, 57 percent in Colorado, North Carolina and Kentucky, 58 percent in Virginia, 59 percent in Massachusetts, 61 percent in Delaware, 66 percent in Pennsylvania, 73 percent in Rhode Island and 80 percent in West Virginia and Minnesota.

The states with the most nursing-home deaths, New York and New Jersey, didn’t make the list because of so many other deaths, yet more than 10,000 people died in their facilities. The 5,500 nursing-home deaths in New York are more than the total deaths in all other states except New Jersey.

Florida got the message and implemented a model response. Despite its vast enclaves of long-term care homes, it reported ­under 750 deaths in them, or slightly more than one for each of its 615 facilities.

The striking contrast between Florida on one hand and New York and New Jersey on the other can be traced largely to policy decisions by their governors. Gov. ­Andrew Cuomo of New York and Gov. Phil Murphy of New Jersey issued almost identical orders in late March requiring nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients being discharged from hospitals. The orders barred the homes from even asking if the patients had the virus, lest they be discriminated against.

Those politically correct orders quickly became death sentences as infections spread like wildfire.

One of the worst is the state-run Veterans Home in Paramus NJ, which has recorded at least 72 deaths. A man who lost his 91-year-old Army-veteran father there was quoted as saying the home should be demolished and replaced with a memorial park. “It’s like a mass shooting,” he said.

Then there is this gem:

Do us all a favor, follow your leader and take hydroxychloroquine. Help thin the gene pool and reduce re-pubic-con magical thinking.

Enough Already

How about you follow through and leave Kentucky? I believe you said we were "narrow minded" and had an "either/or mentality". We already have too many educated idiots and we sure won't miss you. Most of us do agree on this. Leave already...

dkskd001a

well you are the ONLY one saying anything, yet you claim "many of us ...". I'm sure you do NOT speak for everybody else. You must be pretty "sensitive" to hold onto my words so tightly. Or you know I speak truth. Either way, ... again ... bugger off redneck bible thumper

Enough Already

Go to the left coast with the rest of the liberal turd boys. Be happy, leave!
