August 1st 2020 – Civilians News – “News For All Views” –
As the federal government continues to discredit CiviliansNews.com as being, “fake news,” is it time to make a distinction between, “government news and civilians news,” altogether?
Which is to say, who is credible? What information can I trust and what are the statistics? Where are there proven statistics, that all Americans can trust, provided by a credible source? Is CNN credible? Is Fox News credible and who decides? Whereby, this issue of credibility is especially terrifying in terms of grass roots politics concerning; disease, death, poverty, mental health, suicide and home ownership.
How should I vote? And how should I feel as an American about a pandemic, which I can only see through my front window? Because in today’s political climate… I can’t help but wonder if the aptly named, “CORONAVIRUS,” is now being used as a political ploy, simply to debate issues that our leaders don’t wish to discuss publicly (IE immigration in LA). Furthermore, I’ve now begun to wonder if Covid-19… is now also being used to justify stalled negotiations concerning; climate change, immigration, minimum wage, tariff disputes and fair housing reform.
Nevertheless, obviously that’s not the case… because apparently the CORONA VIRUS isn’t just mocking tariff’s placed on American beer…. but apparently people really are dying.
And they really are… according to Heart.org.
But, I personally wonder just how many of those deaths are being FALSELY attributed to the Coronavirus? And how many people are now using this disease simply to take advantage of the accompanying government stimulus money? Regardless; in an economy where the wealthy hardly even talk to the poor anymore, it’s wonderful to know that we have a leadership group in this country that intentionally puts people who say, “don’t pay taxes,” into intentionally awkward financial predicaments. What if you don’t qualify for unemployment but lost your job due to the virus? Nobody cares, because the only people who don’t qualify for unemployment are the people who weren’t working before or didn’t file their taxes. So again, I wonder… is this, “pandemic,” being used to punish people as well?
Regardless, more people are dying… and as you can tell by my tone, it frustrates me for a variety of reasons… but namely because I don’t entirely trust the data. From my perspective, almost everyone I know creates some sort of self serving bias towards their own financial success and this entire epidemic, in many ways… feels to me, more like a BAILOUT for the fake people who operate these, “smile in the front,” bankruptcy in the back, businesses, which are all too common within America today.
So with America’s biased attitudes towards personal wealth, clear to me, from a grass roots perspective… I REMAIN SKEPTICAL of the CoronaVirus death tolls and it’s economic impact. Which is to say, “how many people were collecting disability in this country, before the virus?” And how many of these people going bankrupt, were already 10’s of thousands of dollars in debt? Or how many of these business being bailed out by the Paycheck Protection Program (for example Major League Soccer) were essentially failing without government backed welfare programs, anyway? Furthermore, how many people latch onto whatever the news is saying? And how many people will claim that Coronavirus was the cause of their own death, just to aid in securing TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS in spending, for others?
In conclusion, I’m not arguing that the Coronavirus is a falsified conspiracy or a hoax but I do believe that a lot of people are naive about the virus and I also believe that specifically… Republicans are using this to defend their stance on climate change. Furthermore, I also believe that certain people (*Mitch Mcconnel) have taken campaign donations from oil companies for decades, for denying climate science and now view this as an ethical opportunity to right those wrongs…. financially.
But also, no one I know has died thus far, from the Coronavirus disease…. so I personally feel no threat from the disease and maybe that is also why a lot of this feels economically motivated, to me…
