While we sit here in the ice cold freezing water treading our legs with 70 hour weeks watching you all warm n cozy in your life rafts cuddled in your tent blankets watching us drown what I want to do at this moment more than you can imagine is swim over to your little boat - and knock you into the water right with all your sweet unemployment, and perks, and benefits, and boredom whining. And I don't for one minute doubt the dangers of the virus or the scary lack of ventilators, so it's not that I don't believe people will die - it's that now that I realize the people sitting at home don't really care if essential workers do - then I guess right back at Cha. And honestly essential workers are so beaten up at this point and the quality of life so awful - life is meh work living at this point. So yeah... fuck you too let's get this party rolling and get us all back to work - why should essential workers and their families die alone?.

TALK IS CHEAP> so are signs and facebook posts.

ps - essential is essential (it doesn't mean golf clubs and furniture)

Try Harder - call congress. Put down your markers and pick up the phone.Support Unions...wage war on worker abuse.

We'd like some money too. Hey where is the essential worker pay-out? Credit card debt adding up with all the PPE supplies have to purchase ourselves. Not to mention food to keep up immune systems for selves and family who are also being exposed during these 70 hour exhausting work weeks. Hey when this is all over and we get laid off or hours reduced - I guess we won't be getting that sweet unemployment bonus since it's only temporary also hearing there won't be any unemployment funds at all left at that point. All this and then homelessness after all - thanks everyone...you shouldn't have.

There is actually unprecedented amount of money newly created "out-of-thin-air" and "they" are "trying hard" to be distributed. It's a battle royale.

My Mom used to tell me why our pork was hairy. She said that the butcher had died so we had to make do with eating hairy pigs. It wasn't the first time that a butcher had died of a deluge in our clan's history. I guess that you may be able to figure out why I became so interested in finding out how the dogs had been processed to make them hairless for sale. Yeah, I was indeed a bit shocked upon arriving in New York and hearing people talking casually about eating hot dogs ! ( Hairless ones, usually eaten with yellow mustard, red catsup, sauerkraut, cucumber pickles, and combinations thereof. )

One person's payroll taxes cost less than two persons' payroll taxes doing the same work. Corporations pay less in payroll taxes if they hire fewer people. One person needs less management than two persons due to the less coordination required ( which may call for hiring at least a part-time manager ). Blessed is the one who has the job. If one makes more than the ceilings of payroll taxation, one gets the benefits of a lower marginal tax rate at those high income levels.

What we need now is a vision of a re-imagined future which we can work towards. In a shooting war, leaders of the belligerent parties are all fair games in an open season with "secret service mishaps of failing to protect its charge" ( recall a very wise Abwehr which could see and plan for the years of peace and rebuilding Germany after Hitler's suicide in Gangnam style ! I was wondering why Werner Heisenberg was working for Hitler towards dropping a gigantic aquarium tank containing heavy water on London... I bet that he played soccer/Fußball as I did so he also had a strong kick which could send the fishes flying across the English Channel. ) There are countries which have weathered this CP/C pandemic exceptionally well, such as the DPRK, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, New Zealand, and ROK. The DPRK is absolutely the BEST in the world--not having a single case of this disease despite its situating near and connecting to the top of the Redfuckgina where this disease originated. It did even better than Hong Kong which only got about 1000 (1045) cases and a few (4) people died. Hong Kong, one of the topmost three financial centers of the world ( New York, London, and Hong Kong, ) has about the same number of people as the City of New York ( "the City" connotates something different { a bit in spirit like its human-freedom-built-immunization-shot-with-antigens-in-it analogue "the Kowloon Walled City" to Hongkongers } to most native or longtime New Yorkers so "of New York" becomes necessary for encompassing all five, not four boroughs ) does but New York has tens of thousands DEAD, not even the much bigger number of cases. The fastest way to resolve the problems of the world is to nuke Beijing. Hemorrhoids need surgeries now that there is no longer any short-term interference from the U.S. Congress ( Steve Bannon could "fix Hong Kong in 15 minutes" so Beijing takes at most 20 minutes to be fixed ). Taiwan can take over the Redfuckgina in the aftermath. Taiwanese have been learning Mandarin for many decades already to prepare for this liberation of its mainland ( 解放大陸 ). Japan can build nuclear weapons to fight against the DPRK's invasion in case of the U.S. starting a war with another hemorrhoid. Inherited karma is no different from karma in its having to be settled if the other people wouldn't change their minds. In a global war, escaping from one battlefield only to end up in a different one makes little sense unless who the enemies are matters. A global war will find one even if one were to run to a different battlefield so stay at battlestation and fight. Going to war is the best way to get massive number of people employed again thus assuring a successful re-election of the Commander-in-Chief. FDR started building the U.S. Military for the oncoming WWII since the beginning of his administration. The DPRK must be executed. Of course, the cause of this menstrual/shit stain on humanity is in Beijing so Beijing must be nuked. Let all mainlanders take notice that if they take commands from Taiwan, they will be spared. Otherwise, they will perish together with their People's Liberation Army which I presume is idiotic enough to believe in the CCP's propaganda. If they block the U.S. objective of cleaning up their motherland, they shall be cleansed first. There are really some "very fine people on both sides" of the Taiwan Strait. "for finale, hit china right away with nukes so that they understand america better...." Negotiating in bad faith must be ended by a settlement via the use of military force ( which will quickly get most people employed in wartime production for the Conquest of Redfuckgina ), quick and easy--it has always worked until another day another time when it doesn't, much like the armistice to the Korean Conflict has. The fatty liver has never done anything great except contracting terminal cirrhosis.

One characteristic shared by many of these exceptionally great-performing-against-CP/C virus countries is that they are either very near to the Redfuckgina so that they had been peed at during the SARS epidemic or they are so far away from the Redfuckgina that they haven't gotten much wetness from its global-targeting pee even in this unprecedented-in-the-recent-century pandemic.

No one is going to be the one to voice the hostility - it isn't "nice". So there it is. Mad as Hell. I'll be the first. Anyone else? Anger is healthy.

Planned execution is better than anger. First map the terrains of Beijing and the DPRK. The Liaoning aircraft carrier's name tells us that we must attack its home port which protects Beijing. Study the previous wars in the area ( Russia, Japan, Great Britain, etc. were prior belligerents there. ) Figure out Beijing's supply lines and how they can be cut off. It's a big city so it needs many supplies from elsewhere. The railroad lines, navigable waterways, and roadways must be mapped. The powerbase of Beijing depends on its links with the industrial and agricultural heartlands so draw up plans for severing these, especially the north-south and north-northeast linkages. Beijing's electricity is generated elsewhere so the transmission lines will be subject to attacks. If one decides on a larger-scale nuclear attack, this may not be necessary anymore. The weapons of mass destruction of all of our enemies must be destroyed.

Also - eat the rich. Tax them at 90 percent. End their loopholes and off-shore accounts.

[-] 0 points by grapes (5232) 3 months ago

Get metal { such as galvanized steel } trash containers to keep them out of your homes. Devising and putting into practice an excellent trash handling routine is the way to "eat the rich" by starving them. Sell all financial assets subject to their manipulations. Keep to the basics.

How much did I spend on getting rid of my suspected SARS-CoV-2 caused COVID-19?

For INPUT: One cup of tea with an orange peel, an orange, three cups of drinking water,

For OUTPUT: four ( one if by land, two if by sea, and four if by air for "the orange" was coming { as required of fermionic matter in a movement obeying Wolfgang Pauli's Exclusion Principle } ) sheets of toilet tissue paper ( this was for placating the ones who still couldn't stomach the thought of using the bathtub as a bidét sink { if one really thinks about it, people do it when they take a bath, don't they? I've never met anyone aside from creatures such as Washington's geoducks which have their exhaust nozzles up on top; some culturally benighted tourists allegedly used a bidét sink for washing their fruits to eat... hmm, yum yum but they couldn't possibly beat the holy purpose I had put it to use--for an inadvertent baptism in my best clothes--hahaha ! I still feel that I did better with water than my Big Brother's baptism with hoggyswasch in a pigs' feeding trough, again like me he was very well dressed for a festival; "God works in [not so] mysterious ways"--well-dressed kids wearing their best clothes who run in a hurry are "baptized" } but I'll cut this out if we need to break during wartime the paper-money monopoly game of the Redfuckgina ), one good-old-fashioned Saudi Arabian water cleaning ( Muslims figured this out more than a millennium ago--wow! ), and one toilet flush ( to send my potential SARS-CoV-2 infection signal to the brainiacs for analysis to help guide re-opening policy decisions ). I'm a good citizen--I vote every day through my toilet as I literally toss my universal-to-all-people vote for re-opening almost every day into it. It works in a similar fashion as our federal reserve system. Wherever people concentrate in higher density and numbers, there is a "Cloaca Maxima" analogous to the "national association" and regional federal reserve banks which lie at the foundation of the greatness of the { both new and ancient one } Roman Empire.

Dad achieved his en-lighten-ment sitting on a public toilet bowl thinking about life. { NO! He wasn't giving birth to a baby.} The running hot water coming out of the faucet afterwards with which he washed his hands convinced him of the greatness of postwar America. This country could get its act together to provide for creature comfort to almost everyone who is blessed to visit its shores ( he has been around the world and what impressed him the most was "creature comfort" in line with our general bottom orientation--we loved the many American inventions: municipal chlorinated { invented by American } tap water--my Big Brother never fetched water with pails and a yoke again, I had never taken on that water-fetching task; refrigerator--Mom was relieved of frequent shopping trips and could thus work more and accumulate savings { there was infrastructure pioneered by Americans, Tesla and Edison, underlying refrigeration: cooling water at the electric power plant, fuel, and electrical grid }; air conditioning at the movies--my Big Brother and I; radio and television--I the most { listening via shortwave radio broadcasts was how I learnt of the BULLshit of totalitarian-Socialists-masquerading-as-"Communists" propaganda--twisted fake-news interpretations of the same events } but surely the others also to a lesser extent; manned flights--all my family; automobiles--all my family; telephone and line to talk with his girlfriends--hogged per his "baptismal mandate" by my Big Brother { he never got a Japanese girlfriend as Dad had recommended but the few handfuls of Japanese sentences Dad had taught him unexpectedly came in handy "for a three-legged cat"--even a little bit of "hopping and limping around" can help; for cultural intermingling and admixing, contemplate why we were taught in a Chemistry laboratory session to add concentrated sulfuric/sulphuric acid slowly to a beaker of distilled water but not the distilled water to a beaker of concentrated sulfuric/sulphuric acid; both are mixing and mixing is just mixing but the intermediate conditions traversed can matter a lot; Jimmy Carter was just too international-cultural naïve and goody goody in Christianity, thus planting the seeds of discord; granting asylum even for medical treatments to odious dictators can incur unnecessary wrath because it's not our motives which count in the future animosity, but how other cultures view our actions; for example, it should be crystal-clear to the Talibans of Afghanistan by now; it will help the DPRK to understand why MacArthur liked the Japanese people very much--there were no tricks in the surrender of Imperial Japan--but he hated the North Koreans; similarly as to why the Nazi German soldiers behaved with such vehemence towards the Russians--Stalin didn't accede Russia to the Geneva Conventions, thus making Russians subhuman in Nazi German officers' eyes into "an inferior subhuman race whose Lebensraum, living space, is to be taken over by the superior master Aryan race" } ).

These remedies of mine certainly helped starve the U.S. medical money-allocation industry.

Where is the action?... While people are dying.

[-] 0 points by grapes (5232) 3 months ago

People have always been dying. A war, nuclear or otherwise on Beijing and the DPRK, provides much opportunity for action. New York's funeral homes were so backed up that a war will create many jobs at the funeral homes for the brave, cemeteries for the free, munitions and logistics factories, etc. Our Shittoad-in-Chief loves the grapefruits through the night hidden under the half coco-a-nut shells and the bombs bursting in the air, too. Fireworks are great !!!

Oh wait you're scared to die on a ventilator all alone - but it's all good you can get anything you want delivered from the comfort of your living rooms. Essential workers must have extra strong lungs and immune systems (they don't have children either).

In the same amount of time it takes to order something on AMAZON - you can email CONGRESS to demand essential worker relief and protections - how about that.?!?!
