“President Trump’s policies are set up to fully open up America, support him on 3 November.“– Paul Ebeling
It is time to fully reopen the US economy, and that requires more than the Fed printing money to finance business debt and government deficits.
Congress, Mayors Governors and business leaders must act boldly to get things going.
If not hard times will fall on many people, especially young people, and many marriages and babies will be postponed or never occur.
Another aid/relief/stimulus package is needed that extends state unemployment benefits to 99 wks, as it was during the Great Recession.
The plan proposed by House moderates would resurrect federal supplemental unemployment benefits at $450 a wk and send $500-B to the states to replace lost tax revenue.
Most Americans cannot work on laptops from home offices kitchen tables, as only about 37% of jobs can be effectively performed remotely.
For many others, folks are working longer hours to compensate or have been furloughed, productivity is lower and corporate cultures, and close connections among employee teams are eroding.
As offices and retail establishments continue to operate at 50% and 75% capacity, more and more restaurants and other small businesses fail and more jobs are permanently lost among lower income workers that come face to face with the public..
Public safety and the security of private property must be restored so that businesses can reopen in cities like NY, Chicago, LA, Seattle and Portland. That will require Mayors and Governors to abandon nutter notions that police, not criminals, are the primary source of violent crime in minority communities.
Curtailing law enforcement, enabling Black Lives Matter (Burn Loot Murder) to shut down public streets and highways from commerce by day and hoodlums from the extreme left and right to loot, burn, murder and terrorize good, law abiding citizens by night is not solid public policy.
Business leaders, including executives from Citigroup (NYSE:C), Mastercard (NYSE:MA) and NAS Comp (NYSEArca:QQQ), wrote NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio that “People will be slow to return unless their concerns about security and the livability of our communities are addressed quickly,” but he shunned them deflected their pleas.
If Mayors will not empower and adequately fund police and confine demonstrations to public spaces that do not hamper private commerce, then Governors should override them and appoint city administrators to exercise their authority. If Governors will not do it, the President should declare a national emergency to put down all of the insurrections.
Herd immunity from C-19 will be required to permit most workers to ride mass transit and return to offices without spacesuits and draconian measures like apps on cell phones that track their every movement, interaction and trip to the restroom.
Water cooler conversations that boost innovation will not happen if workers are monitored like inmates in a federal penitentiary and fearful that an unauthorized visit to the desk of a friend may trip their interaction limit and send them home.
We should have at least 1 vaccine for FDA approval in the closing months of this yr and available for wide distribution early next yr, but we will need to accomplish 60% to 70% immunity to curb the spread of C-19.
Requiring vaccinations and proof of immunity to return to work and access public transportation are the best way to maximize the number of Americans who may return to work.
“Without questions, this country must open up with national standards to force cities and counties plus states to be opened up faster. Otherwise, we will do just what the far left wants which is to destroy the United States from within. Too many contradictions are out there on the conavirus pandemic, with doctors contradicting doctors and even the experts themselves. There is also too many unanswered questions about masking and social distancing in that a national mandate must be used for clarification. Media must too be held accountable for their too often fake reporting of medical facts for they are too often reacting to undocumented hearsay information.
“Federal grants/ subsidies to States should be tied to police reform and not further restrictions or budget cuts in order to limit mass protesting in our streets. State and City reallocations plus budget cuts must be stopped from using the police as a whipping excuse for every day events. People must understand that every minute of the day a policeman’s life is in danger and people must recognize that the endangerments of their sacrifices to protect us. Perhaps, some of the hypocrites out there should exchange places with them and see first-hand what real risks they are taking to keep us alive and safe.
“There should be further a national mandate that all policemen should be required to have body cameras. This would then replace and hopefully eliminate media’s bias – causing too often self-serving reporting in order to enhance their viewage and revenue bases plus the reporter’s identity.
People should also be mandated to take any approval FDA vaccine and if not, it should be at their risks.
“Further, if they do not take an approved vaccine, they should be immediately eliminated from any of the Federal social benefit programs, including welfare and unemployment checks.
“It is time for our country to take hold of itself and force the re-opening of our country so that idle time can be eliminated and more security brought to the family unit. Harsher federally mandated penalties must be invoked for looting and street rioting too plus defined regulations issued for street protesting. Most people do not recognize that much of this is too often done for the financial enhancement and the sole benefit of the organizer(s).
“Politicians must understand this and leave Party affiliations alone in order to come together as the America of yesterday. They must recognize that we are at war with a disastrous disease and thus, react accordingly in the interests of the American people, but this requires a constructive versus a destructive ideology, which appears absent in our Congressional and State governments today. We must reopen our Country to save ourselves,” says economist Bruce WD Barren.
Again, President Trump’s policies are setting up to fully open up America, support him.
Have a healthy day, Keep the Faith!
