yup.. get ready for people to panic buy the stores empty so you cannot buy your dinner for the week at anything less than inflated prices.. lots of people will be hurt by this mass hysteria over something not even all that dangerous.. disappointed to see trump adding fuel to that fire
It' just like the flu bro! Sarcasm if you didn't catch that. Yes, I think he finally figured it out hopefully.He is so stupid. Quit shaking hands! Somebody needs to force him to get some sleep. The Republicans need to get together and force Trump/Pence to keep a distance from each other.
The bill the President signed earlier in the week was exactly that; full of pork totally unrelated to dealing with COVID-19. This new bill will be more of the same. I could care less about taxpayer-subsidized school lunches. All this represents is a blank check for the Democrats to fund all of their favorite causes and send very few dollars to where they are really needed.But really, them Democrats have no shame. I despise their antics and agenda more with every day that passes.
They truly have no shame. If anyone is in doubt about that, the pork in those bills is all the proof you need.The bill the President signed earlier in the week was exactly that; full of pork totally unrelated to dealing with COVID-19. This new bill will be more of the same. I could care less about taxpayer-subsidized school lunches. All this represents is a blank check for the Democrats to fund all of their favorite causes and send very few dollars to where they are really needed.
I listened to the press conference. He sounded very much like a man dealing with intense stress which of course he is.The one thing I noticed about President Trump and this press conference today is the quality of the leadership. Can you imagine the leadership we would have under the likes of Biden, Pelosi and Schiff? The Democrats are not in the same league.
The Democrats wanted to add some stuff in the bill which President Trump would not want. I do not at this time have a source but I read online that it supposedly included major funding for surgical procedures which murder unborn babies.
Whatever it was, the Democrats are wasting no time in letting no crisis go to waste. They have already blamed him for Covid-19's spread stateside and they will use whatever bad stuff happens to would him politically en route to 11/3/2020.
I know there are some out there who believe Covid-19 was released by the Chinese to help derail Trump. I won't go that far. But I have no problem believing the Democrats would use this serious situation for political gain.
I love how he bypassed the Democrats and used the constitutionally guaranteed powers of the executive office to get FEMA on board.
And as someone said, the DJIA ended today's session 1,985 points higher. The S&P 500 Index closed 229.25 higher at 2,685.25. Now, just a few more such sessions and we can all look at our retirement savings without weeping.
But really, them Democrats have no shame. I despise their antics and agenda more with every day that passes.
EVERY. LAST. DOLLAR. Should be spent here at home. The $100M should go to providing additional security at embassies in shady areas of the world. Everything else listed above is pure pork totally unrelated to combating the virus.The surgical procedures were a part of the bill, which should be about saving lives.
It also included:
$264 million for Diplomatic Programs
$435 million for Global Health Programs
$300 million for International Disaster Assistance
$250 million for Economic Support Fund
$100 million for International Security Protection
