    How Democrats are taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis

    How Democrats are wrongly taking advantage of the coronavirus crisis

    Excerpt:

    Right now, our home-grown socialists are delighted that Uncle Sugar will be handing out checks to everybody under the sun as part of the $2 trillion stimulus package.

    And why shouldn’t they be? The socialist goal is to make everyone dependent on government, except for them. They’ll be in charge, telling everyone else how to live and what to think.


    ...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has packed all sorts of leftist wish list items into the bailout, despite some Republican Senate opposition. There’s $50 million for legal services for the poor; $75 million for federal arts programs, and $25 million for the Kennedy Center so congressmen won’t miss their favorite shows.

    As of Friday, it wasn’t clear how many items survived in the final version. The Dems wanted federal money for abortions and fetal tissue research. They wanted to weaken state election safeguards by mandating national early voting, same-day voter registration and absentee balloting without voter ID. They also wanted student loan forgiveness, “green” offsets on carbon and forcing a “diversity” agenda on corporations.

    Although much of the bill will help revive the economy, it has billions for massive expansion of federal welfare programs without a clear indication that these are temporary fixes. This fits Mr. Clyburn’s and Mr. Emanuel’s socialist vision of using a calamity to permanently expand government.


    ...

    The healthiest arrangement is subsidiarity, whereby people closest to those in need know best what’s needed. It starts with the family, then the churches, synagogues, neighbors, local community and on up to the county, state and national governments.

    The left has this backwards, preferring to start with big government. It doesn’t matter that this often does deep damage to the rest of civil society. In fact, that’s the point.

    Having so many independent, self-governing folks is deplorable to them. As is exempting our daughters from the draft.

    There was a huge amount of pork that was removed... some estimates by $$$ value is that only 25-35% of the pork remained.

    Folks should remember the DIMs tried to pork up the bill... come November...

    I think if this thing keeps going down hill.... folks are going to remember how Trump failed in his response to the bug and ended up killing their loved ones, neighbors and friends.

    Its one person, coming in from China... 15 people, soon it will be 5 and then zero...

    No, I dont take responsibility. It was someone elses fault, that guy... that guy over there.

    “President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the daily White House briefing Mr. Trump and his coronavirus updates have attracted an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’ Numbers are continuing to rise...

    Replying to @realDonaldTrump
    ...On Monday, nearly 12.2 million people watched Mr. Trump’s briefing on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, according to Nielsen — ‘Monday Night Football’ numbers. Millions more are watching on ABC, CBS, NBC and online streaming sites, and the audience is expanding. On Monday, Fox News...

    What is wrong with this guy? I don’t say this lightly, but Trump bragging about the TV ratings of press briefings that are necessary because his government botched preparations for a deadly pandemic is sociopathic.

    So you think the president Twittering about his great ratings for pandemic briefings is normal behavior.

    I have no words.
