    He doesn't have a point. In fact, he doesn't even know what the hell he's talking about.

    Instead of telling others to "take a nap", perhaps you should consider waking up from yours.
    What do you think happens when this blows over? Those 17 million jobs are poof, gone, never to return?

    I'm not ashamed to say I drove home in complete silence, I got home and I just... Broke, I cried uncontrollably, because you know like, I don't like to claim I'm good at anything, but I think I do understand a situation beyond just whats immediate, I knew looking at what I was dealing with that if we were losing that kind of money and dealing with a problem of this scale, that the rest of the economy was ****ing toast, I understood the gravity of the situation in that moment and it just, shook me to my core.

    Come over here, let me show you something:

    You mention a "sobering experience" that you can't speak about. Then go off on a tangent about some economic issue you also don't define. Then speak vaguely about a medical issue/incident you lack expertise in. (I assume having to do with the current viral outbreak).

    Finally, asserting no desire to be "sensationalist," or "scaremongering," you still don't explain what exactly you are so concerned about.

    I have great respect for you, but I have to say I really have no idea what it is you are trying to say...other than "be scared of something."

    Could you please explain what exactly it is that you are so concerned about?
    You missed it

    You all be safe.

    And, yes, they may become horrific in the next two months.

    But to expect this not to affect the economy is wishful thinking, but to think that it's going to keep down the economy is fear mongering to me.

    There isn't one industry that has not been affected by this....healthcare had to change the way they do things, etc......but there is also not one industry that can't come back from this.....

    Take a company like Tyson Foods....let's say for ****s n giggles they have 50,000 employees before this all hit, but now, they let 20K go....and are operating at 50%......so yes, 20K employees hit unemployment, a hit to the economy, but when this blows through, and it will, does anyone think Tyson food is going to remain at 50%, no, they are going to go on a hiring spree, they will need people to work, and may hire more than 20K, who knows.

    Point is, all the jobs that have stopped, will be coming back.....
    I have stated, since, that depending on how long this goes on, we could, potentially, maybe spend our way out of this mess, but you're being woefully optimistic about the speed at which we can recover from what is the largest, cataclysmic event since WWII in terms of it's scale and affect on the world, you guys are totally in denial.

    I made two central claims in my OP:

    That this was going to be massively economically damaging.

    And that the number of Covid cases was going to explode.

    I was correct, on both counts and if you think this is going to be over quickly or that the stimulus is enough, I don't know what drugs you're smoking especially when it would take very skillful execution to make a stimulus of that scale effective, and you've got man child in charge that's turned it largely into his personal slush fund to give out as he sees fit.

    You say you don't know what I'm talking about, well we can't have that sjmay, anything you don't understand I'll explain to you.

    Well, explain what it is that you are talking about, if the only thing you have is OMG Unemployment.....well....ok...and? Anyone who didn't see that coming is a ****ing moron....and anyone who thinks those jobs are permanently gone, is one as well.....

    I have 17 of 26 employees on furlough right now. After tomorrow it will be 18 of 26. As long as no one is going in for an eye exam, the entire industry is at a stand still. Tens of thousands unemployed already and I got word today that executive level positions and salary reductions are next up.

    I'll be shocked if nationwide unemployment stays below 30%.

    The global economy can only last for a so long when no one is working. If things don't start to get back to normal soon, the whole thing will just tip the **** over.
