The good news is, it appears the Corona virus has peaked in a majority of the states.  Of course some states will continue to experience a rise in infections for a short time, but on the whole… we’re getting well, so say our good doctors.

That’s the good news!  The bad news is, what we’ve done to our economy.  What happens after this “virus-crisus” is over?   The pandemic has opened a virtual Pandora’s box of costly things to be dealt with in the near future, not the least of which is a growing dependence on big government.

As always, the democrats took this pandemic crisis as a golden opportunity to spend vast sums of money on things that were important to them, but not necessarily important to the nation.   This spending advanced their agenda for more power, more control and more government, but at the cost of nearly ruining our gross national product.

To avoid the pain from layoffs and temporary business closures, government printed up 2.2 trillion in paper money…that’s pure debt.  Eventually it will be passed along to the next generation because we’ll not live long enough to pay it off.

Because of similar spending around the world we have profoundly damaged our complex business paradigm in ways that could take decades to sort out.  This plays into China’s long term goals, but undercuts America’s.   We’ve been heading to the left for decades, but now thanks to the COVIDS virus the left is sprinting to the finish line to cheers of our citizens who want government to take care of them more than they want the freedom to run their own lives.

They’ve got the basics to survive, they’ve been rewarded with welfare safety nets, bailout money and if they need more money, government will just print more.  This is how socialism works and apparently at least half the nation approves.  Maybe we should be grateful to China for this virus, look at all the free stuff its brought?

Socialism makes a lot of promises.  Life will be less risky with all the so-called free stuff, like free education, free healthcare and more.  However, just understand that we can’t endow government with so much power without the people in power abusing it.   This human nature and history says I’m right.   Look at how the Mayor of Los Angeles abused his power during the quarantine,  ready to bust citizens for minor infractions like swimming at the beach.  And to enforce the new draconian rules special snitch lines to rat out your neighbors have been created.  This was unthinkable a few months ago.  Just show you how fragile our freedoms really are.

As government grows we must adjust to having a little less of everything, it can be no other way.   As the needs of the state get larger your needs get smaller.  History has proven this is how it works, time after time.  Ronald Reagan underscored this truism when he said, “Freedom is never more than a generation away from extinction.”

    For those who haven’t received their “$timulu$” yet, this explains a lot:
    I’ve been checking and keep getting that “Payment Status Not Available” but there’s a new note at about Social Security recipients that applies to us.
    Patience, folks!

    As of 11:00 pm central time, IRS “Get my Payment” button goes to “Service not available” message.

      Yep, the gov. website has crashed and has been that way for the last 3 days or more.

      This would be reason number 3,685,014 “Why things done by the Government rarely work as planned, work poorly at best when they do, cost more than they should and almost always leave taxpayers feeling ripped off.”

        It was working at 7pm Saturday, but said my amount information for 2019 and 2018 didn’t match their records, so it locked me out. I have to wait 24 hours before trying again. Time to call my accountant.

    Here’s something I got from Trip Advisor regarding how the airlines are treating cancellations/rebookings and refunds (if any).

    The airlines got a big ticket $$ bailout, and several senators have written to the airlines to ask that folks get REFUNDS instead of vouchers for future travel. Haven’t seen any response from the airlines yet, and they were supposed to reply by 07 APR.

    Hoping my fishing trip to AK in JUL is still OK . . . . . .
