    U.S. economy suffers titanic 32.9% plunge in 2nd quarter, GDP shows, and points to drawn-out recover



    Trump really screwed up the COVID-19 virus thing.


    He wanted everyone to reopen so the economy would rebound. Reopening just inflamed the virus and made it spread like wildfire.


    This is what happens when you elect an idiot.

    Maybe four hours drive time radius around hot spots?

    idk

    maybe more


    The real thing is individuals need to find their own motivations for doing the right thing.

    That requirement is what makes Trump's poo-pooing so insidious and awful
    Trump's poo-pooing creates an uncooperative attitude which harms Americans.
    I don't doubt some of that happens. San Diego tends to be a destination spot so we see a lot of out oft owners. Conversely, I don't doubt a lot of Socalers head east to Las Vegas or the Reno/Lake Tahoe region. It seems like every other day I get "invitations" to some Vegas resort I visited in the last several years. I'm not seeing this "Trump poo-pooing" you talk about. As the country's leader he has to maintain a positive, enthusiastic demeanor. We can't just keep borrowing trillions and mailing out checks while we peons stay hunkered down in our homes. A far bigger problem than any supposed Trump fault is the incredible number of people that STILL don't believe seperation and masking is necessary; instant gratification rules, unfortunately.

    You didn't notice Trump saying concerns about covid were a hoax just to make him look bad?

    You didn't notice Trump saying covid would just go away?

    etc.?

    That's ... unexpected.


    Do you not see that as poo-pooing covid concerns?
    I may be wrong.

    This began the flood of southern red states reopening far too soon.

    The red states that are currently underwater with COVID.


    Check to see if you’re registered to vote. You might have been purged by your state GOP. Check it now.

    Vote for Joe Biden and all Democrat candidates on November 3.

    Did I say Trump didn't encourage opening up? Why is that such a difficult concept for you lefties to grasp? Encouraging is NOT ordering; ONLY the governor of a state can order its open/close status.

    A few months ago you guys were screaming when Trump CLAIMED he had the authority to order states to open. You guy fell in love with federalism when Orange Man was stymied. Now, you're claiming it's his fault. Since his election you guys have been pushing Trump as a dictatorial fascist - now you're pissed because he isn't?

    Didn't miss it because he never said it.

    And . . . it will, eventually, which he also said.

    Nope, I see it as someone (maybe you) swallowing the BS most of the media is serving as "news".

    Seen this several times. Still doesn't say what you THINK he does. Do the words "This is THEIR NEW HOAX" mean anything to you?
