Fraud

Confirmation.

Only it isn’t the kind our state needed or wanted. Yet, we now know without a doubt that the governor and the health department had an alternative agenda. Revelations like this have a pretty serious implication on the state’s economy, but literally on lives of people who never had the virus, won’t ever have the virus, but are struggling with the isolation or unemployment.

Not only is our state the victim of a massive fraud in unemployment claims, but the governor seems unwilling or unable to deal with it. Instead, he cancels his usual briefing and sends an underling to take the heat. Leadership, eh?

Now, we have confirmation on how the governor’s agenda has played out. Many people, in states all over the US, have suspected for a long time that deaths in their states were being reported as “covid deaths” even though the person died of other causes. Pad the numbers. Make it look worse than it is. Justify lockdowns and killing jobs/the economy by making a totally survivable illness more dangerous than it is. Inflate the numbers for an agenda.

Are you people paying attention to what is going on in your state? Your country? Are you taking the government at its word or are you just hunkered down in fear, waiting for when they tell you “it is safe to come out”?

Conspiracy? No. But there are definitely some who are taking advantage of you while you are living in fear and being distracted by infectious chaos. Do you still believe that all who are in government are looking out for your best interest? If you do, no matter what side of the aisle you are one, then you’re naive at best…but I fear that maybe, if you are one of those who takes everything the government and media tells you without skepticism and cynicism, that you are something worse than naive.

And that is something to fear.

 

 

 

 

Money tree?

Apparently the Democrats have a money tree they aren’t telling people about. Actually, it must be more than one, because there is no explanation of how this government give-away can be paid for, let alone sustainable.

What I can’t figure out is where they think the money for this is going to come from. Higher taxes? Who can pay those since many business are shut down? Oh, and since business are shut down, they’re laying off or furloughed their workers. And those workers don’t have money to spend at the businesses that remain open. The business that remain open? Well, they reduced hours and laid people off.

You see how this works, right? The cycle the economy follows is self-generating. In order for it to work, all parts have to be working efficiently and effectively. There is no part of an economy that doesn’t rely on another part of itself to work, removing parts keeps it from working.

Guaranteed Minimum Income. Universal Basic Income.

Two bad ideas and perhaps this is all about a dress rehearsal for those. Sounds great on paper but doesn’t work in reality or practicality. It’s been tried and nearly always/completely leads to disaster. But the socialists in the country are gonna keep on pushing it because you know, the mirage of utopia is just one the other side…

Perhaps its an attempt to buy votes for the upcoming election in November.

“Look what we tried to do (or did) for you! But those big bad, typically small government and more fiscally responsible Republicans kept us from giving you free money that we don’t have and can’t afford. Aren’t they mean? They’re keeping you on the bottom on purpose by not giving you the opportunity to receive free money instead of earning it. “

If a politician is telling you that you can get something for nothing, you better look real hard and ask a lot of questions. It ain’t true, no matter what they tell you! There is always a cost, and it definitely won’t be what you think it is and it won’t be the first thing you find. Dig deeper.
