Where, Oh Where, Are You Corporate America?

The deaths toll tens of thousands. Other than the investor class, the economy is in a shambles with small businesses on their last legs. Unemployed, people cannot pay their rent, make mortgage payments, put food on the table. Unemployment compensation is disappearing. And Yet!

You, corporate America, have done nothing to sway President Trump or the Republicans to save the working class and small businesses. I have a question for you.

WHO DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO BUY YOUR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES?

In the past you could rely on world markets when the economy slowed. This is a global pandemic. You have nowhere else to go.

To grow the economy we need to solve the Covid-19 crisis. What have you done to force President Trump and the Republicans to save your consumer’s lives?

To grow the economy we need small businesses and their employees. What have you done to force Trump and the Republicans to help small businesses and their workers survive to rebuild an economy on the other side of this virus?

I realize that you do not have any interest other than profit, but if you do not force President Trump and the Republicans to immediately come up with and pass a package like the “Heros” package; there will be no profit for a long time.

As for the investor class they will continue to inflate and deflate stock prices until, with the country in a shambles, someone looks behind the cortain and sees that the market is based only on smoke and mirrors. There will not be a black Friday; there will be a black year.

It is not too late for you to step up. Politicians cannot suvive without your donations; with even a hint of donations drying up Mitch and the Republicans will move, not to save the country, but to save their own fortunes.

NOW WOULD BE THE TIME TO ACT IN YOUR OWN SELF INTEREST AND THE INTERESTS OF YOUR STOCKHOLDERS.

Can’t Trust What You Hear, See or Read About The Candidates?

I am sure that you are as dismayed as I am with all the lies and misinformation by politicians, media, Russia, China, Iran and others making selecting a president difficult.

There is a simple solution:

SINCE WE CANNOT GET RELIABLE FACTS UPON WHICH TO VOTE, VOTE FOR THE CANDIDATE BASED UPON THEIR CHARACTER.

Divide a sheet of paper in two with a vertical line. On one half list the personalty characteristics and accomplishments for President Trump.

On the other half list the personality characteristics and accomplishments of former Vice President Joe Biden.

Who do you want to listen to and trust for the next four years?

Choice is pretty easy isn’t it?

JUST DIE DAMN IT!

It should be evident to even the Trumpsters that what the Republicans want is for the elderly (who are on Social Security. Medicare or Disability ) and the working poor (who are on Medicaid) and people of color (who are dispropornately affeced) to die. How can I charge that?

Why is he holding back on testing?

Why else would he want he elderly to attend his pep-rallys?

Why would he want to curtail testing?

Why isn”t his administration seeing that there are adequate medical protections for our health care workers?

Why does FEMA send “junk” to the providers in nursing homes?

Why has he silenced the CDC?

WHY ARE THE REPUBLICANS SAYING OR DOING NOTHING?

The death of these non-one percenters are the only hope this president and his Senators have of gettng elected.

At the same time, their deaths would decrease payments for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid freeing up mney to dealwith the exploding debt they created with their first stimulus to the one percent.

Wake up!

NOW?

NOW, that the President has declared a victory over Covid-19 and is dismantling the Covid-19 Task Force led by the Vice President, can the Senate led by Mitch Mconnel try him on his impeachable offences, find him guilty and remove him from office?

It would be too late for the 100s of thousands of our citizens who will have lost their lives because this President refused to recognize the danger and do his duty for his citizens.  That would be for the citizens other than his friends, grifters and money makers.

This is on you Mitch and your Republican cronies have stood by and watched while Nero fiddled and Rome burnt.  You, Mitch are the modern Nero.

Quid Pro Quo issue made simple

Quid pro quo is not the problem.  Diplomats do quid pro quo (one thing given in exchange for another) for the benefit of the country and its citizenry.

What is problematic and impeachable about Trump’s or his minions quid pro quo is that the quid pro quo is for the benefit of the President Donald Trump’s reelection.  The quo is not even his to give.  As a matter of fact, the military aid he was holding hostage to help his political campaign was voted for by the Congress to be given to Ukraine to benefit the furthering of democracy in that country and it’s fight against the Russian invaders.  Therefore, the aid was not his to give or withold.
