  1. America, you voted for and put these incompetent, and in too many cases criminal, people in their positions of power. I hope it’s not too late to fix this problem.

      Tessmage Tessera If Trump is removed, he has to be replaced with somebody better. Who is a better choice for President? You can’t name one person. Lol

      @stevecorino1 My dog would be a better president than Trump, so my answer would be “almost anyone.”

    • Tessmage Tessera I would vote for your dog over Biden because your dog probably is less creepy when it decides to sniff little girl’s hair

      @High Messiah Aren’t you funny. But stupid.

  2. $6,000,000,000,000.00 for Corporations & Billionaires while many others & I haven’t received a penny & my measly $1200 cheque from tRump. Where is the justice in that?

  3. I reside as an expat in an Asian country, a developing nation, everyone is wearing a mask, 50% are wearing gloves, there are entry QR phone codes for store entry and exit that log your health when transiting my city, Corvid-19 virus numbers are low, admittedly social etiquette is not like western countries but if Thailand can do it, how can every single individual in the USA not be ashamed of the social stigma the rest of the world feels US citizens have perpetrated on themselves?

      I agree all but one thing: You are an immigrant (even an emigrant) in an Asian country. Not an expat.

      Why do Westerners who move to work in other countries become an expat and others become an immigrant if they move to a Western country?

      70% of our citizens agree with you. 30% are flipping out in the streets. And our government has abandoned us and decided not to help us the same as other developed (and some underdeveloped) countries do. How are we individually supposed to be ashamed, exactly? I’m a week from not being able to pay June rent, and it’s ME who should be ashamed?! Of WHAT exactly? My mask is on and I stayed home. Most individuals can say the same!

    I feel for all suffering from this fallout.

      Me too and Harris is right to call this relief package deeply flawed, especially since Schumer didn’t get serious with McConnell and since we can’t seem to get actual relief to the most dire needed, Congress shouldn’t waste time passing anymore legislation until we get a more civilized leader on the right who can set things right.

    Real estate investors got another nice big tax break from the stimulus package.

    The post office is also a part of many small communities. Save them

    States and Cities are already eyeing employees to layoff due to lost revenue. It will be massive job cuts.

  8. One of the most important pieces of news here right now along with 100m people on lockdown again in China, little coverage.

  9. I would really enjoy spending my money at my local businesses but with so many unknowns in front of me and my family I’m guarding our money. Spending is for essentials only.

    • Ben Eng Exactly. Consumer confidence is at an all time low. I don’t know why they think forcing business to open (at full operating cost) with very few sales is economically sustainable. I guess they thought bu “telling” us it’s safe we would believe them. Even though we are watching our fellow citizens die around us daily.

    • Ben Eng yup…. he just wants to get back to campaigning,he could care less about us……

    The president of the USA doesn’t give a toss about the small community businesses. Time to VOTE.

  11. Only rich companies got bonuses with our tax money. Thiefs

  12. Future Madam Vice President ladies and gentleman. She cares about the people and is the most progressive according to the legislation she has been a part of creating, she holds the GOPs feet to the fire. Amazing leader.

    • I think you are holding her far too high. Could be worse, though

    • Future Madam President I think.
      In two years tops.
      Good choice.

      Fellow Patriots:
      What you are about to learn (learning) should not only scare you, but intensify your resolve to take back control [Freedom]. The information that will become public will further demonstrate the criminal & corrupt [pure evil] abuse of power that the Hussein administration undertook in joint efforts w/ domestic and foreign dignitaries.📁

  13. Any business I don’t care who you are you still have to make sure your customers and your employees be safe entering the building please use your head the business have to be held accountable because they can provide the safety for the workers so the business should be able to get sued if they can provide proper protection for the workers and customers.

    Wealthy white oligarchs gobbled up every penny they could put their hands on and left none for small business!

    Deeply flawed is an understatement. Maybe they’ll start to understand when we are all homeless, living in our cars but I doubt it!

  18. He doesn’t care about anyone…..I don’t know how people don’t see that

    If the government messes up everything, why do we need more of it?

    I would submit that most all businesses, large and small, are essential.
    It’s just a question of, to whom they are essential.
    To those who own small businesses like hair salons and pizza parlors, their business is their livelihood. Sounds fairly essential to me.
    These are the same shops and stores that suffered so during the crash of 2008.
    We are NOT expendable!
