I have to give it to them. Leftist politicians like Joe Biden, Andrew Cuomo, Gretchen Wilson, and Gavin Newsom, along with their mainstream media lapdogs, have done an impressive job in absolutely terrifying a huge portion of the U.S. population.
How? With their scare tactics over CoVid-19. Of course, that’s how they achieved lock downs and dictatorial power in blue states and in large cities (which also tend to be blue).
Now, the U.S. economy is paying the price, along with the mental and emotional well being of all of these shell shocked Americans who completely bought into this whole situation. Jack Phillips writes,
Several Indiana residents filed a lawsuit against the state government after Gov. Eric Holcomb last month announced Indiana would pull out of the federal government’s COVID-19 unemployment program.
The lawsuit, which was filed last week, seeks to force Indiana to return to the $300-per-week program, which was slated to end in September. Holcomb, a Republican, said he made the decision in a bid to motivate unemployed people into finding work amid reports of staffing shortages nationwide.
“It’s not black and white,” Sharon Singer-Mann, one of the plaintiffs, told the Indianapolis Star. “Everybody’s story is not the same. I’m not going back to work, not at the risk of my son’s life.”
Singer-Mann added that after the governor’s decision removing the extra unemployment benefits, “we’ll have to decide which utility bill to pay, which household items to let go of,” and “we’ll have to change what kind of shampoo we use, what kind of toilet paper we use.”
Another plaintiff, Rev. David Greene, president of the Concerned Clergy of Indianapolis, alleged that his “community is dealing with enough stress and trauma.”
Now, I have no doubt that these people are scared. I think that many of them really are scared, so, for many folks, it’s not an issue of laziness.
On the flip side, though, at some point, these people have to face reality. The money has to come from somewhere and, guess what, the people who are already working and who will be working in the future (our children and grandchildren, etc.) will be the ones paying for this. They’ll give huge portions of their paycheck over to pay for the increased national debt this continued paying people not to work will cause.
At some point, people will have to face the reality that they’re going to have to find a way to make a living by contributing to the economy again. I’m not unsympathetic to their stress, but the reality of life is what it is. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
