So, how many people got your bailout money?

Me; No, I gave my banking info on my taxes but I don't use Turbo Tax I do my own.

Trump does not want to test

It's right before our eyes people. On a conference call with governors Trump said he doesn't see a problem with testing, right after Montana's governor told him that Montana could only test 1 more day unless it got more supplies.

Trump does not want to test because testing will balloon the numbers of infected and the numbers of dead. Trump wants infected people to either get better on their own or die, either way the numbers of coronavirus infections is not reported accurately.

Yeah I know that China is accused of under-reporting its numbers, and I have no doubt that China did this, however, China tested and China knew the real numbers that's why China has all but defeated the virus.

0 Payroll taxes,

Trump is proposing that employees and employers pay 0 payroll taxes the rest of the year. That means Social Security and Medicare will be gutted.

Also, please no nonsense about how the employer pays half the tax, the employer passes off payroll taxes onto its emplyees through lower wages.

If Democrats agree to this I won't bother to vote this year.

By the way, the reason the market jumped up this afternoon is because Trump leaked out that he is going to bail out the shale oil and big banks. Socialism at its finest.

Russia and Saudi Arabia have Trump by the balls.

I mean we already knew that but Putin and MBS know that Trump can be bought. What will Trump give up for Saudi Arabia and Russia to stop the oil price wars? Keep an eye out.

People Dying From The Flu

My question is this; how many people who are dying from the flu are really dying from coronavirus? Is this a dumb question? I mean if we aren't testing in large numbers how do we know the extent of the virus?

IMO this is what Trump wants; no or little testing so that he can claim the virus fears were blown out of proportion by the liberal media and that's what is causing the downturn in the economy. He thinks the epidemic will be over by April and he just needs to fudge the numbers until then.

Trump controls the CDC,

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus the CDC has posted stats on its website which showed how many confirmed cases there were, the total number of US deaths, and how many people had been tested for the disease.

The site no longer discloses the number of deaths or the number of people tested.

I said this long ago, Trump doesn't want people tested, he wants to blame deaths on the regular flu.

I found this info at the Daily Beast.

Trump's border "wall."

This is a good example of how Trump and Republicans control the MSM narrative.
I just read the article about how the ACLU is going after Trump's diversion of money that is being used for his border wall.

Why the fuck is everyone calling it a wall? It is a fence. I would think that at least Democrats can call what Trump's hateful barrier really is, a fence. It doesn't sound so appealing when billions of taxpayer dollars are being spent for a fence.

Just something that has been annoying me and I had to get off my chest.

Too bad it's too late for Adam Schiff to run,

he would certainly unite the Democratic party.

So I was called a Republican

because I started a ridiculous thread suggesting that if Trump lost the election he would not step down.

Every day I see how Trump acts just like a dictator and no one can stop him. I f no one stops what he is doing now what makes anyone believe that he can be stopped in November?

Rudy Giuliani and Bill Barr are still digging up dirt on Biden in Ukraine. Russia hacked Burisma and a Senate committee has received from the Treasury department, financial information from Hunter Biden.

"For months, while the impeachment controversy raged, powerful committee chairmen in the Republican-controlled Senate have been quietly but openly pursuing an inquiry into Hunter Biden’s business affairs and Ukrainian officials’ alleged interventions in the 2016 election, the same matters that President Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani unsuccessfully tried to coerce Ukraine’s government to investigate. "

"Unlike Trump and Giuliani, however, Sens. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee; Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee; and Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, have focused their efforts in Washington, seeking to extract politically useful information from agencies of the U.S. government. They’ve issued letters requesting records from Cabinet departments and agencies, including the State Department, the Treasury, the Justice Department, the FBI, the National Archives and the Secret Service. "

"Grassley and Johnson have sought to obtain some of the most sensitive and closely held documents in all of federal law enforcement — highly confidential suspicious activity reports (SARs) filed by financial institutions with FinCEN, an agency of the Treasury that helps to police money laundering. "

"The senators’ requests to the Treasury have borne fruit, according to the ranking Democratic senator on the Finance Committee, Ron Wyden of Oregon, who contrasted the cooperation given to the Republican senators with the pervasive White House-directed stonewall that House Democrats encountered when they subpoenaed documents and witnesses in the impeachment inquiry. "

“Applying a blatant double standard, Trump administration agencies like the Treasury Department are rapidly complying with Senate Republican requests — no subpoenas necessary — and producing ‘evidence’ of questionable origin,” Wyden spokesperson Ashley Schapitl said in a statement. “The administration told House Democrats to go pound sand when their oversight authority was mandatory while voluntarily cooperating with the Senate Republicans’ sideshow at lightning speed.”...........................................

In other words, Grassley and Johnson and Republicans are doing what Rudy and Trump and Pompeo, et all. failed to do.
