I was watching one of the political programs Sunday when Department of Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo was asked on “Face the Nation” whether the amount of money people receive because of the pandemic had anything to do with the help wanted by companies and businesses not being filled. She said there was no direct evidence that Americans weren’t returning to work because of Covid-19 payment to citizens. Is she from this planet?
You wonder why people are fed up with politics in general and national politics in particular is because numbskulls holding political office and high office to support government don’t have a clue about what goes on outside the Beltway. They figure if they throw money at a problem it will not affect any other part of the economy.
The worst thing is most of these folks are just not smart… and some of them are just plain stupid. They’ve never had real jobs where you sweat, make things, manage others, own a business and make a payroll, make sure there is a profit at the end of the fiscal year and other experiences that make one effective and efficient in managing others and capitol.
Most politicians are college graduates with political science, history, English, or law degrees. A law degree is fine if you’ve actually practiced law. Many find the law unsatisfying, actually boring. So they turn to politics. Good for them but not for us —this is the fallback job after their professional career didn’t work out.
And if you look closely at where they graduated within their class (Biden was 76th out of 85 in his Juris Doctor from Syracuse as an example) you will notice their ability of thinking and reasoning is limited.
It is very clear when someone thinks getting free money from the government will not affect citizens’ decisions not to return to work isn’t a factor — that is not even questionable — of course people are going to stay home if they can make $600 a week and not travel to work, not pay child care, not pay for gas or upkeep on a vehicle.
This is common sense folks, not rocket science. Somehow, those in D.C. cannot figure this out.
Ms. Raimondo, I know you are a politician and have to support President Biden, but the jobs report would significantly improve IF you remove the carrot and throw away the stick. If knowing more support wasn’t coming, they would return to work. Tell them by the end of June the gravy train is drying up, the jobs report would be unbelievable by the end of August.
I guarantee it. And no, please don’t send me a check for the advice. You can’t afford me, it is free, free, free — just use your brain. I know it hurts, but try.
Speaking of Covid, what is happening at the border with all these children in cages and no masks or social distancing? The horde of invaders from Mexico not wearing masks and some are probably carrying Covid, what of American citizens contracting the virus from them?
Oh, I know, ignore the man behind the curtain, nothing to see here!
The Biden Administration was, is, and will always be a joke with a physically weak and dementia patient at the wheel of government. God help us!
The rotting of America from within continues… in earnest!
