I ran across this 1st article today and I have to say I was taking aback. I hope this is a trend. The media outlets know how shameful the liberal politicians have acted through this. If they begin speaking out the writing is on the wall for the Democratic Party. (it’s doubtful but one can dream)

Again keep in mind this is from the hard-core liberal newsweek.

The lead in is Nancy’s infamous ice cream snafu . Where she exhibited complete lack of empathy and showed exactly how out of touch she is with regular people

A lot of this stuff has been gone over. But this is Newsweek


The political elites in Washington would do well to remember the story, especially now. The Paycheck Protection Program to help small businesses weather the economic consequences of the COVID-19 shutdown has run out of money, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her lackeys like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are blocking Congress from appropriating additional funds, while people from all walks of life are facing ruin.

Pelosi seems to regard this crisis as an opportunity to force the Republicans to agree to the adoption of her left-wing agenda. And, as she has already shown once during the COVID-19 crisis, she is willing to make struggling Americans wait until she gets her way.

Snip
Looking over that list, and there's lots more than could be on it, it's as though Donald Trump didn't win the election. Pelosi's behaving like her party and its agenda are what carried the day in 2016, and she's determined to cram it down our throats, consequences be damned. Some might call that leadership, but it's more like tyranny.


This is where my jaw dropped.

Remember this is Newsweek!!!



Notice as well how the Republicans—who have their own long list of wants, including the abolition of the Davis-Bacon Act, a national "right to work" law, the retroactive indexation of capital gains to remove inflation from the calculation of what constitutes a gain, the repeal of Obamacare, tort reform and an end to federal funding for Planned Parenthood—aren't using the coronavirus crisis to push these issues on the American people.




Newsweek

Not to be out done apparently Cuomo felt the need to show that he lacks the same empathy and is even more out of touch with the working class.

The complete contempt and indifference he held for the protesters was evident in the snide way he made this comment.


“By the way -- if you want to go to work, go take the job as an essential worker. Do it tomorrow,” Cuomo said.


He didn’t say it as advice he said it in a shut the F up what do you know way.

He repeatedly said “ worse than death” “ worse than death” . Like Andy didn’t think we knew everything that was at risk before people took to the streets.

Instead he was making a direct accusation that anyone wanting to go back to work was killing people.

He doesn’t have a clue who is suffering. Some of those people spent their life’s building business that are now going belly up. And Cuomo in his infinite wisdom is telling them to get a job at Piggly Wiggly.

perhaps in the coming months, the idiot cheerleaders right here may notice how this appears to those with working brain cells. Or perhaps not.

I think Cuomo just had a "basket of deplorables" moment. You know he's going to be beaten over the head with that comment incessantly.

Sadly this is how I feel.

The small business PPP is being exploited by large businesses.

The truth is the people who need relief the most will get crumbs... And maybe there is malice to that somewhere rooted with corruption... But I think the government is just inept on making something happen. We can't do it with existing programs, so who's to say we could do it with a snap program of this scale.

There will be no relief from the government, I don't care your party affiliation. Best we come to terms with that. And while some may be able to hold a few waves of stimulus as some sort of evidence there may be relief, I promise it will not offset the bleeding that's occurred, much less what's to come.

We're so royalty screwed. And it's easy to say it's all because of politics, which am arguement certainly exists for. But it's because instead of asking what are we going to do for ourselves, most asked what is the government going to do for me. I can answer that for you, they're going to f*** your life up, or what's left of it.

Cuomo just destroyed himself with those out of touch comments.

People have lost everything and he says go get a job as an essential worker.

There are not 22 million essential jobs and my essential job is no more or less of a risk for catching and spreading the virus than most of the jobs consider non essential.

We need to elect middle class people and have term limits. Because arrogant elitist, on both sides, are completely out of touch with 90%+ of the people. Not only do they not represent the people through their policies mentally they are unable to do so.

Cuoma makes an excellent point. Need a job then get a job. I totally get why he was elected. Mentally he is on a much higher level of understanding than common out of work slobs who let's be honest, they were working worthless jobs before all this happened. Ny Giants, Yankees, Mets, Knicks all worthless losers with jobs that don't matter.

Perhaps all their fear mongering and propaganda panic worked a little too well.

You can't scare the crap out of people and then just blow off their fear and panic from your golden pedestal. Or worse, exploit their fear and panic for your political agenda.

People have given up everything for the "greater good" only to now find out they gave up everything for the critters' personal good.

The proof is in the pudding.

Don't go all Kierkegaard on us just yet. The fun part is the schadenfreude of all these bastards coming down along with the house of cards.

The despair begins when the rebuilding is underway and you realize they're doing it the same way all over again.

How can you even separate the two?

Can you imagine a world without the socialist liberal party, the liberal media
conglomerates and liberal Hollywood? You can't separate any of the three
because they all serve the same overlords and their ideologies.
Which undoubtedly harbors no good intentions for the rest of us.
There are two words in the human vernacular that never would have met
if it were not for those people.

Conspiracy theory

Cuomo is angry and frustrated. He going to be sued for negligence with Covid-19, McConnell told him yesterday New York is not getting a US Taxpayer bailout, Joe Biden isn't croaking fast enough, and he doesn't have the patience to continue daily briefings, like President Trump does. Oh...and then there's jealous Fredo Cuomo.

Excellent point


As for the rest of the post I get your point.

But I did watch it change in the 1980s .

Nothings impossible .

Hard to hit Nancy despite all her epic fail statements. Sign it before you read it, take it to the bank he will never be President, he's not getting a wall...meh. They gave her a full green light.

This showcasing though of her stocked high dollar ice creams with not one, but two very expensive built in fridges and laughing about it is probably going to stick. People are really suffering right now. Imagines like that leave a permanent fingerprint on the brain. It's demeaning and officious to almost every economic class.

I do well but I would never go around flaunting or bragging about my good fortune on national TV during probably the worst d crisis of all time outside of the bubonic plague. She's gonna pay for that one.

Unfortunately you're right. I'm seeing more stories of small businesses not being able to get these loans because the banks already gave them to larger businesses. While some large businesses do need help, the problem appears to be that banks are prioritizing the larger loans. From what I hear, the stimulus bill explicitly forbade the banks from doing that. There are some lawsuits already starting. If the banks really did do this, it's time to drop the #ing HAMMER on them. I'm sick of these #ing banks.


We're so royalty screwed. And it's easy to say it's all because of politics, which am arguement certainly exists for. But it's because instead of asking what are we going to do for ourselves, most asked what is the government going to do for me. I can answer that for you, they're going to f*** your life up, or what's left of it.


You're so right. You also reminded me of my favorite pickup line. Maybe I'll try catcalling AOC with it.
