**We're all in it together**...........Are we?

Well thats what we've been told...

# Jobs lost...

# Employees furloughed...

# People put on benefits, so taking a financial hit on income...

# People working from home to keep their jobs where they can....

Sounds great? but wait a minute.

The real question is why they need any more money. In March, every MP got an extra £25,000 to cover increased staff costs, taking the total amount for running their offices to over £200,000 a year.

Admittedly, working from home may mean they incur higher domestic ­telephone and utility bills, but they’re also saving money while their constituency offices are shut. So why bung them another ten grand? What extra equipment do they need to work from home?

Is it really credible that M.P's do not have computers? or/and only heat and light

up their homes when they are there? and how big are their Mansion homes that

it takes £10,000 to cover those costs?

Lol!!!! but we're ALL in it together
Aren't we?

*They'll slash your savings rates, but how many B.Soc. 'Fat Cats'
will take apay cut?*

M.o.S. Finance

Banks and credit card co.'s are with holding interest payments for a period (3 mths)

I'll wager any accrued interest will be added to the first bill after that period. All

wording I have seen or heard on the subject has been obscured or conveniently

blurred to intimate it is not forgone only delayed.

Call me a cynic, but I think Some are more in it together than others?

This is the time for us to root out the " good " from the " bad "

Al those who have not played the game like most of us have to, then don't support them either financial or otherwise when the lockdown is finally over.

Don't forget some businesses deemed more essential than others. Like you can by some heart disease fuel at a fast food drive thru but not veggie seeds at big boxes in Michigan.

An opportunity for some sort of levelling of the land?

When this is eventually over we simply must not allow things to go back to the same old same old they were before, the time for positive change is upon us.

How this can be achieved is beyond a simple man like myself.

I got a foot of heavy snow in my driveway since I plowed last night. I am all on my own, if I get the plow truck stuck I am all on my own. I could call my brother, but I doubt if a truck can get through this crap. With a plow you are clearing it for the wheels, I can hopefully plow it or I will have to get the tractor out. I suppose, I can leave it there till it melts in two weeks, we are supposed to be quarantined anyway.

Not all people are in it together, some people do way better than others with this. The nurses will be getting a huge pay increase through the end of the year, but next spring they will find out that they will be in a new tax bracket and owe a lot more taxes.

I think the phrase is CIA/MSM social engineering for collectivism and the NWO. I can definitely see it trying to change perceptions to make it easier to usher in socialism and the more authoritarian Government that follows socialism’s implementation.

We haven't had anything even remotely resembling a socialist government here in the UK for quite a while now. We have had a Conservative government since 2010 and it is them who are trying to censor TV broadcasts and maybe internet sites etc.

Sorry that doesn't fit in with the left/right and everything leftist is evil obsessions that seems to completely dominate US politics etc.

Whaaaaaaaaaa? £10,000
So first they allowed the draconian measures and then they get this money...

Here is a decent, but long video. It has some good stuff in it, I understood everything the guy talked about, every cell type, every scientific term, it did not intimidate me one bit. Almost all of what he said, except for the whining about nobody listening to him, is real. I wouldn't mind discussing things with him to open his mind further. He is in protect and lash out mode though. Kind of sad, he has lots of understanding of some of these immune functions in our body. It is a long video, I skipped through the initial whining to get to the content, I know how messed up our CDC and Gates are already. But for some who do not know or can't believe it, maybe you should listen, it is pretty correct. I was more interested in the scientific stuff and solutions he was bringing to the table. He does a decent job of it.

As I've stated on other threads, let's take it to extremes...

Let's say the elites all "win" whatever game it is which many believe is being played out before us. What then?

They steal everything everyone worked their entire lives for. They "win". Then what?

When all that is left is misery for everyone else, then life is over...for everyone. Oh sure, these elites may live on for a decade or two, but who cares? People will check out long before then. Then it doesn't matter anymore.

Everyone wants to play the doom game. Well, okay, let's play it, but let's play it right. Society scales upward well and easily. Society doesn't scale downward well or easily at all. Suzy the Instagram queen, who's never broken a fingernail, is never going to go pick cotton all day. She just won't do it, not even to eat. She'll just jump off a bridge first. And when there's no one to pick the oranges, or the coffee beans, or butcher the steaks, and harvest the caviar...the elites don't eat. And they're not going to take to the fields or the corrals themselves. They either won't do it, or they'll get killed trying. What then?

No half-steppin', folks! If you wanna' play the doom game, then play it all the way. All the way to the end!

But it doesn't last.

It's not sustainable, and anyone with even a partially functioning brain knows you can't get blood out of a turnip. After a while, all the money in the world is worth zero. There is no free lunch. Not for anyone.

I really and truly believe we are all in it together.

We are just playing the "game" in a way that we all lose.

The "elites" are frequently where they are at because of a desire for power and control. They do this, in many cases, to their own detriment.. But it does build wealth and influence.

Us plebs play into it by ceasing to view them as actual people. They are economically & socially isolated just like any ruling class in history.

Its all framed around notions that are detrimental to all of us, but in different ways.

That's what the major players are thinking by trying to take advantage of this.

More power!! More influence!!

Little realizing that people will begin to say FIA, and stop doing anything at all, save the bare necessity to keep themselves alive--should it go that far...

What influence would someone like Bill Gates have over me, when I reach the point of NFTG?? At that point, a person, or persons, become dangerous.
