Black Rock will come to their rescue. I’m sure of it.

No doubt at all that a very large number of Americans face eviction, but they will be comforted to know they live in a land of freedom and democracy where Human Rights are practiced daily and naturally that will draw comfort from that despite living on the streets or under bridges.

The inevitable result of the insane, idiotic, hysterical lockdown.

Nations with the most complete lockdowns had
the greatest success overcoming the plague.
Watch out — mainstream media is a reality blackout.

Bomb China…….and eradicate the invisible chink virus! Or second best, pop a HCQ pill and chill out. But whatever you do, don’t drink bleach or that demon semen. I tried it and it’s yucky.

I feel sorry for all the people worldwide who lost their jobs and lost their homes. This is a global tragedy, not only a US tragedy.

You describe well what has happened to the middle-class,
but to get the full picture we must include all who lost
there lives, most over whelming the essential workers,
better known as the 50% working poor.

Yes, I feel very sorry for those people, too, who lost their lives. With my comment, I concentrated on what Eric Zuesse wrote about, the evictions.

Landlords and banks have no conscience, surely the evictions and foreclosures will come down upon the millions who have no ability to go deeper in debt.

John, the Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow also evicted people renting property from them during the coronavirus crisis. The Russian Orthodox Church is not a bank, but a “landlord” for sure, a very greedyand merciless landlord. Nothing much has changed in this respect, since imperial tsarist times. The Church was always on the side of the exploiters.

They’ll all blame Trump. In 2008 they blamed the bankers and let Clinton off scot free but this time around, blaming Trump’s their trump card.

Over 30 million scheduled to join the homeless before November election, how could reality star Trump have climbed to heights of glory where no man has gone before, only to crash-burn in a massive fit of stupidity? — But surely, the overpowering magnetism of power and glory that goes up exponentially with exposure to such self-exhalation, surely Trump and republicans have not the will-power to do anything but handout more trillions to high finance, by austerity bankrupt the working-class, and to blind the public to his evil intent, he shall increase police terrorism and orchestrate his response to Covid 19… Read more »

Look at the bright side John – If Pelosi and Schumer had gotten their way with witnesses being called during the Senate Impeachment hearing there would have been no relief actions till months later. Once the Impeachment hearings started the Senate can not work or vote on any legislation. With the number of witnesses listed they might still be holding the impeachment trial. Imagine how much sooner the Government could have addressed the problem if it weren’t for the delaying tactics of Pelosi. Who was it that Mocked Trump’s initial reactions? I think it was Pelosi, Schumer, Cuomo, DiBlasio et… Read more »

Be real, do not most politicians sell all their decision making powers to the highest bidder? Read from a script written by the corporate rich, how can you blame them for anything but being void of a conscience? When 50% of voters are so indifferent they refuse to vote, when 50% of voters support wars of aggression, surely it is only the voters that we need to motivate toward a change of heart.
I voted for Jill Stein, which accomplished nothing but to give me a clear conscience.

LMAO – I find it funny I almost voted for her too. The fact that it made a Clinton win more likely was the only reason I voted for Trump. I had a youth hostel in Atlantic City and many of the Summer workers for the casinos would come from Eastern Europe to work for the Summer…… And before people go off ……….. Every Winter, the casinos would hold job fairs for locals. The jobs not filled would go to the students………….. This is a long way around saying they replaced speaking Russia to speaking Esperanto when talking to other… Read more »

So you have people that haven’t worked for months and mortgages that still need to be paid.
I understand the value of the dollar is what people are willing to assign as it’s value but at some point it will enter into the realm of 1921/3 Germany if we just continue to create it.
2 weeks ago I collapsed from what turned out to be walking pneumonia – I had to be revived and oddly I tested negative for covid-19…….. My bet is if I didn’t revive I would have been listed as covid-19 related.

Eat a vegetarian diet that has not been processed by man or animal.
Namely, put nothing in your grocery cart that is more than 15% fat.

Actually – thanks for the advice John. I do appreciate it. Although I believe the Pneumonia was caused by the same stupidity that gave me double bronchial Pneumonia in the Army. Namely running in and out of air conditioning while working outdoors in mid 90’s weather while repairing our fence. The physical work has a lot to do with hubby being legally blind. The fact that after nearly going postal on the YMCA staff of college students that without their google searches would be virtual idiots. We turned our spare bedroom into a full gym with cardio/weight machines. I do… Read more »
