  1. You guys better get the lead out or the whole country is going over a cliff.. for God’s sake this is unbelievable

    1. I’m sure Quentin Tarentino already used this, but I’m envisioning “The Purge: Pandemic Christmas” with the rock n’ roll version of “Feliz Navidad” playing cheerfully in the background.

  2. You don’t need liability protections for companies. If they treat their workers right and take the precautions they won’t be held liable. Why give them a way to say if we do t do this right we are not at fault.

    1. its the same way they didnt like giving free money and everyone got to stay home and chill like they do .. ill never understand a govement who is ran by men who aint never built a built a thing or worked in a warehouse or a female who aint never had a call center or retail job run a country? they dont know how to because of entitlement … if we all quit all our small time jobs,THEIR families would have to do those jobs .. they know people are scared to take a leap on faith to get out of their predicaments and they are surley right …

    2. @Benchwarmers The podcast just think about the fact that most 1st world countries used their tax dollars to pay their citizens to stay at home. Some places like Canada each citizen is getting 2500 a month until this is over. Meanwhile in the US we got a one time payment of 1200 in March and business and corporations received ppp, tax breaks, even though they still laid off their employees. You have the republicans making it so we can’t see who received our tax dollars. Come to find out big business we’re getting millions of tax dollars during COVID and they were spending it on new private jets, and stock buy backs.

    1. I agree! Lest I sound self-serving, I especially think that companies and corporations must be liable for deliberate or negligent disregard of the value and validity of their employees’ need for livable pay/benefits and safe working conditions!

    1. BTW, this isn’t a Russian joke about Trump. Russian Orthodox Christmas is really in January. McConnell putting off the talks for another week make it utterly impossible for even the first round of payments to be to the people by American Christmas.

    2. Lol it’s $1K…are you such a lowlife, that $1K matters to you? A normal job pays that in a week? You’re the problem with America, not the lawmakers. Get and education, and save your money LMAO

    3. @Mook Mook Which is why Pelosi, who was trying to hold our for cash for the people, decided to go with this skinny bill. She knows things will be different under a Biden presidency, especially if Democrats win in Georgia.

    4. @ryan rafanan – and the 2.2 trillion was also a compromise, not far from the 1.8 trillion. Trump later tweeted he wanted to give more stimulus than Pelosi offered. The difference between stimulus offered by Pelosi, Trump and McConnell is that every stimulus bill Pelosi offered was guaranteed to be backed by Democrat votes. Everything from Trump or McConnell is just hot air which is why nothing passed the Republican controlled senate.

  3. Yesss Jake!. . Hammer Home the concept of getting out another “Corvid19 Stimulus” payment out to the public as soon as possible!!!

    1. Oh please. You’re totally delusional if you think Bernie is in the way. It’s Mitch McConnell all the time every day, smacking America around like some ugly pimp.

  4. McConnell will not give anything to the middle class. He only cares about his billionaire donors.

    1. Communism is a pure communist violence movement in the East, while it is a mild non-violent alienation in the West. Compared with Trump’s rejection of socialism and the restoration of tradition and conservativeness, Biden is practicing latent socialism. In August, the Democratic Party announced a policy agenda drafted by socialist Bernie Sanders, which mentions China 22 times and is concentrated in the economy. The Biden team supports globalist trade propositions and wants to build a large government with high taxes. This is actually a dream of a socialist economic blueprint. It will lead to the concentration of power, the rules of power allocation of resources, and corruption and dictatorship will follow.

      Biden’s policy guidelines are on the so-called personal rights and interests, which completely degrade human morality, advocating the legalization of marijuana, the protection of gay marriage, and the implementation of men and women sharing the toilet. In reforming the judicial system, seeking police layoffs, reducing police funding, and at the same time allowing violence and weakening people’s right to hold guns. The leftist introduced a bill in California in 2014 that made robbery under $950 legal, which caused the crime rate to surge. In 2020, California approved the K-12 curriculum developed by BLM, that is, from kindergarten to grade 12, there will be courses taught by BLM in the school. However, the BLM Movement and the Communist Party’s gangster violent revolution have similarities. If Biden is elected, Marxism and communism will become compulsory courses in the American education system, the history of the United States will be tampered with, and the future of the United States will be fully occupied by communism.

    2. Congress: ok, elections are over. $1,200?! Oh, hell, no. Move along we have a corporation…er country to run. No time for you peons. Don’t ask again until the midterms!

  5. The Heroes act was passed in May!!!! McConnell ignored it
    He didn’t care then, he doesn’t care about relief to Americans now.

    1. I don’t care for McConnell myself, but it’s Pelosi who owns the blame on this failure. Why? Because as usual, she’s trying to throw in trillions of unrelated pork on the deal and absolutely refuses to negotiate. Here’s a lil cut in paste to support my opinion..
      Mr Blitzer asked Ms Pelosi why she would not, as progressive congressman Ro Khanna and others have suggested, compromise on a bill, even if it fell short of the more than $2 billion Democrats in the House are pushing for.
      After more back and forth, Blitzer said to Pelosi “I’m asking you serious questions because so many people are in desperate need right now,” then asked the speaker of the house when she last spoke to the president to strike a deal.

      “I don’t speak to the president, I speak to his representative,” she said.

      Blitzer asked why Pelosi and Trump don’t just get on the phone and hammer out a deal one-on-one.
      “What makes me amused if it weren’t so sad, is how you all think you know more about the suffering of the American people than those of us who are elected by them to represent them at that table,” Pelosi said.
      Nancy Pelosi Net Worth

      Despite only earning a top 20% salary, Nancy Pelosi’s net worth puts her in the top 1% of wealthiest Americans in America.
      According to the House Speaker’s personal financial disclosure in 2018, Nancy Pelosi had a net worth estimated at $114 million.
      However, given the S&P 500 increased by 31% in 2019 and continues to do well in 2020, despite the coronavirus pandemic, Nancy Pelosi’s net worth in 2020 is closer to $130 – $150 million.

      It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that Pelosi could give a hoot for the more recently impoverished Americans who not only are in dire need of relief but are also suffering from draconian shutdown orders in Democrat heavy states. It’s long been noted that a cure shouldn’t be more harmful than the problem.

    2. @Gregory Alfano You seem to forget the other two times Pelosi and Schumer meant with trump in person. Didn’t go over so well. I know you forgot because it was over a year ago. Once about gun regulation, nothing got done. Then again over the budget, I believe trump walked out. So can stop pretending working directly with was an option.
      This supposed to be a stimulus package. It’s literally all pork. Instead of try to slim it down, Republicans should of added their own pork.
      The more money pumped into our economy the better.
      I know debt, as if that’s actually am issue. We are already over 28 trillion and that only gets brought up to stop helping the people directly. Never when it’s time to talk de the defense budget or bailing out Corporations again.

    3. @Gregory Alfano By the way. your last line says it all you’re just upset we were shut down in the first place.
      Blame Democrats and let the people starve.

    1. @Suomy Nona uh sir ma’am had it NOT been for Bernie we would not have gotten that 1200.00 stimulus. I know its strange seeing someone fight for the American people but he is what it looks like.

    2. I understand there is disappointment because he hasn’t been consider for any position in the future administration. But, he is so relevant, seen and helpful where is at. I pray he continues to be bless and healthy.

    3. @Beautiful Woman I’m sure you believe that. Do you have proof? No. The Bernie cult, like the Trump cult, believing all good things flows from their divine leader. I forgot to thank Bernie for causing the sun to rise this morning. Bernie forgive me.

    1. Businesses need liability protection to keep them from bullshit lawsuits that someone could bring against them. Thats why businesses are requiring masks. Not because of safety but because of potential liability.

    2. @PJ Evans It is the function of the courts to throw out bullshit lawsuits – they are doing just that, quite well, for tRump, who appointed so many of them. They will certainly do just that for ordinary fools.

    1. @Kimberly Gray And that has what to do with Bernie Sanders? Any demographic existing has bad people in it. To state the obvious (Again), it is bigotry to assume an individual is automatically bad because you don’t like a group. Don’t like Mormons? Don’t join them.

    1. @gerardoxx25 cause she dosent have any sympathy for human beings she just cares about her rich friends and her rich lifestyle

    1. Bernie will never go against shumer or pelosi has never done anything in 49 years he always says that he will fight but then votes with them

    1. @Christina Miller I’m talking about employment. You can apply at Amazon, and start working tomorrow…making $50K after overtime.

    1. @Bob Jones You do realize that this is suppose to be a democracy and that money is not free speech like the supreme court says it is? and corporations are not people?–I’ll believe that when one comes back in a body bag from Afghanistan.

    2. @Nick K lmao, seriously? These companies have done with enough loses during Covid! And you’re acting like they are the enemy

    3. @Darren Engels Of course they can’t. They have no evidence. It’s all bullshit like, “the election was rigged because I lost, boo hoo hoo” Sick of these fascist morons.

    4. @Darren Engels No, what I am saying is it is off the table completely. They want to force people back to unsafe work conditions then if they get sick, tough luck, and good luck paying the hospital bill.

    5. @Bob Jones …and wars…..and Great Depressions…and come running like whiny little bitches to the government when they need to be bailed out by we, the tax payers.

    1. @gerardoxx25 The facts contradict your statement about Trump. On 10/01/20 the democratic corporate party- controlled House of Representatives approved H.R. 975, “The Heroes Act, appropriating $2.2 tril for general stimulus relief for individuals, a bailout for small businesses, special assistance to veterans, agricultural relief, renter’s protection, homelessness relief, and airline bailout. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/925/text?r=60&s=5

      On 10/06/20, the President rejected the H.R. 975 before it could be considered by the republican corporate party-controlled Senate. https://www.npr.org/sections/latest-updates-trump-covid-19-results/2020/10/06/920828075/trump-pausing-coronavirus-stimulus-talks-until-after-the-election

    2. @PJ Evans HAHAHA INDEED ,He lives in a 5 million dollar house . THE MERCENARY 2020 MOST VIOLENT ACTION MOVIE NR ONE RENTAL AT REDBOX NOW FREE ON AMAZON PRIME ……………………………………………..NO WOKE

  6. Thank you Bernie for caring and having a heart. We need more people like you in office. I am unemployed and appreciate you fighting for me and everyone else that needs help.

  7. Its upsetting that we cant get back 1200 bucks of all the thousands a year we put in with all the taxes we pay.

    1. It’s upsetting that you need $1K extra to be happy. A normal job pays that in a week….you’re acting like it’s life or death

    2. @Bob Jones
      Who said happiness? You! You may not have lost any money but a great many ppl did. WTF do you think lines that go for miles at food banks is about…..oh nevermind they’re leeches. And your mama supports your deadass.
      Not all employers are up to full time. Ppl with chronic health conditions lost ins.
      Get in touch with the real world. We are not talking about the 1%.

    3. @Kathy Wolf the 1%? You think people making $50k a year are 1%. You sound like a leech. You need the government because you failed as an adult. You can go to Amazon, and work for $50K…tomorrow. You just have to…*cough* WORK! But that’s a job you can have tomorrow!!!!

    1. He cares so much he bailed on us after to leave us with Clintooon and than Biden instead of supporting better candidates. How do people not see through his game oh he states the obvious logic people want to hear. And they are in awe after the desensitization of blatent liars and crooks.

    2. Well even if he was president he would not get anything done, his views are to extreme and he does not believe in any kind of compromise

    3. In the name of “freedom” “progress” , such as men and women sharing the toilet, legalization of marijuana, such “freedom” pays the price every day; some “equality” in the name of “tolerance”, such as Theft is not a crime, but such “tolerance” has caused losses to many communities.

      What if marijuana is legalized? The well-known medical website “The Lancet” reported that in 2019, nearly 72,000 people died from overdose of opioids in the U.S., reaching the highest level in history. That is to say, 190 people Lost his life per day due to smoking marijuana and fentanyl.

      In October 2020, 5,000 pounds of methamphetamine were intercepted in California. The Director of the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency said: “The amount of drugs intercepted is large enough to allow every man, woman, and child in the United States and Mexico to be poisoned.” He also said, “Repeated investigation reports show that where there are methamphetamine users, violent crimes, including robbery and murder, rise.”

      What if stealing no more than US$950 is just a misdemeanor? A thief enters a store and leaves quickly after taking the things. Some stores prohibit employees from intercepting the thief. Even if the thief openly takes the goods, it smiles at the camera or the cashier and walks out the door, the shopkeeper will not interfere. Thieves even entered the store with a calculator to calculate the price of the goods. They understand that as long as it does not exceed $950, even if caught, they will be safe in the end.

      Such equality and freedom are what the leftists of the Democratic Party of the United States who strongly advocate “socialism” are actively pursuing.

      In 2014, California passed the “Community Safety and Schools Act”, because people saw it as the “Community Safety Act”, so they expressed their support. It was only discovered after it was passed that the bill stated that because of the overcrowding of prisons, theft under US$950 is a misdemeanor , Without going to jail. In the second year after the implementation of the bill, the case of car window theft in California increased by 15%, and the growth of violent crime in California was also higher than that in other parts of the United States, directly causing community losses of billions of dollars; while California tried to legalize marijuana, making it a paradise for drug abusers.

      The ultra-left is evil. They have their own ideology, such as the theory of class struggle and the theory of capitalist exploitation. The ultra-left people do not have the ability to master complex technology, nor the ability to think rationally, but they want to liberate all mankind and build a world where nobody is exploiting people. In the end, they become big landlords and capitalists themselves. The White Left relies on lying and deception to gain political status, while the Ultra Left relies on lying, fraud and violence to gain political status or maintain political rule.

      If Biden is elected, he will definitely resume Obama’s policies and will definitely return to the track of globalization. The reason is simple, because they don’t have the ability to create wealth, and they don’t care about creating wealth. They just want the convenience of globalization. They only care about solving the immediate problems. They don’t care about their policies leaving bigger and more problems in the future, even Unsolvable problems.

      The government cannot create wealth. The government has the function of distributing and using wealth. For Biden, the easiest way to satisfy his mass base is to distribute various welfare, collect more taxes from the rich, and loot more from the frontline “workers and peasants”, as well as reducing the expenditure of the military and police, succumbing to rogue countries in the world or cooperating with rogue countries in the world to achieve so-called “peace”. Even if Biden is elected, American society will not tolerate him and he will definitely be overthrown.
