Yeah, I really don't understand it either. All these people just seething with rage, but all focused in the wrong places and on the wrong things.
Not defending Trump here, but it's the State governors and mayors who have locked the people down, not the federal government. People say...well,
Trump didn't stop it. Well, when was the last time a president intervened in some crazy State orders or laws (looking squarely at you, Kalifornia!).
Kalifornia has trampled all over people's Constitutional rights for decades, and people admonish Kalifornia, not the president, for it every day. Why
is what's going on right now any different?
I totally reject any free-money 'stimulous' efforts (as I have maintained all along). There are way better ways to skin this cat. So I do fault the
federal government for this...including Trump. I wonder how many people have actually read the actual Bill? I've read most of it, and I don't see
anything notable in the Bill which significantly erodes (further) any of the people's rights. I see a whole S#-ton of waste and pork-barreling in it.
I see a bunch of BS politicking from democrats in it trying to use the crisis as an excuse to get elected by allowing illegal aliens to vote, but I
don't see the 1st, 2nd or any other Amendments in the Bill of Rights being repealed. Did I miss something?
All this rage, but again, all focused on the wrong things. If people want to be mad at the federal government, be mad about the colossal waste of
taxpayer dollars. After all, that's what they do best anyway. Nothing new there. But to be consumed by rage at the federal government for stomping
all over people's rights is shortsighted and wrong!
And here's why this is a problem... If people focus their rage in the wrong places then, come election time, the wrong people will get punished for
things they didn't do. And, more importantly, the true perpetrators of these rights violations will remain in power. That is the real
