The government, and society in general, have a right to establish safety measures in the middle of a deadly, nationwide pandemic.

Government has no right to make up a fake “pandemic” to use as an excuse to seize and abuse illegitimate powers, and violate the rights of the people. And that is exactly what happened with the #CoronaHoax2020.

I am ashamed that so many of my fellow Americans were stupid and cowardly enough to let this happen.

Do they have Batman and Iron Man talking about nuclear secrets?



Actually, it worked reasonably well... of course, a lot of commodities were rationed, and people went along with it. I know this is hard to believe to us today, where we can't get assholes to wear masks during a pandemic.
Masks were appropriate during the first 6 months of so but libs who were drink on power carried the mandates too far

Its just a fact

Pick up a history book sometime

The free market was raising wages while the government tried to suppress them


Ford raised wages in 1914, to $5.00 a day, which was double the average wage at the time for factory workers. That's the only example of wages being raised significantly, and it was motivated by the specter of his employees becoming unionized as many factory workers were at that time. Since the mid-1800s, it's always been worker unions that have raised wages and benefits, not the employers themselves. Ford did it to avoid his workers joining a union. Ford company workers didn't become unionized until the late 1940s.

Your claim was that FDR’s new deal raised wages during WWII

And you were simply wrong

Yes in the 1930s, during the great depression, the unions formed a labor coalition that threatened mass strikes and civil war, if employers didn't meet their demands and the result of that was the "new deal". Since then employers have done everything possible to erode whatever workers attained through the new deal and they've pretty much succeeded. The American working class is now but a mere shadow of what it used to be between the late 1940s and early 80s. You're just a brainwashed working-class person with foolish aspirations to become a millionaire hence your defense of capitalists at your own expense. Most of the defenders of capitalism are self-hating working-class people aspiring to become capitalist fief lords/employer-dictators themselves.

What's too far? Actually, wearing the masks in public venues? It was either that or completely freeze the economy and everyone stays home for a few months. We refused to bunker down for a few months, so the least that we could do is wear a mask, but unfortunately "Bubba" didn't even want to do that.

Thats absolute gibberish

During the Great Depression there were few jobs and millions of men out of work

That depresses wages

During the depression, there was still work, but wages were lower and our country was on the verge of a civil war.

As can be seen, annual average wages asked fell by nearly 58 percent between 1929 and 1933. By comparison, wages paid fell by only 17.6 percent, from $27.57 in 1929 to $22.73 in 1933. Among men, wages paid fell by an even smaller percentage, from $50.45 to $44.85, a decline of only 11.1 percent. survey.

Source:

After massive protests and strikes, the National Industrial Recovery Act (1933) was enacted, to provide workers with the legal framework for collective bargaining (empowering labor unions). Also the 1935 National Labor Relations Act (also known as the Wagner Act) required businesses to bargain in good faith with any union supported by the majority of their employees. Meanwhile, the Congress of Industrial Organizations split from the AFL and became much more aggressive in organizing unskilled workers who had not been represented before by any labor unions. Strikes of various kinds became important organizing tools of the CIO, so you're the pretentious ignoramus posting revisionist gobbledygook.

In 2019, eight months before the pandemic, I relocated to NYC from Miami, because I got a job as a project coordinator at a top app development firm, paying a decent salary. More than half of my development team was from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Vietnam, all with temporary, non-immigrant visas, being paid half of what an American would get paid as a junior app developer. Private companies will always do whatever they can to cut overhead (the cost of doing business) and a significant % of that expense is human labor. Your imaginary "invisible hand" of the "free market" that supposedly, mysteriously guides shareholders to pay more for skilled labor in order to acquire the best talent, is bullshit. The desire to cut costs and increase profits by whatever means available will override whatever wage increases and benefits the "invisible hand" dynamic of the market is supposedly, naturally inclined to provide. The limp "invisible hand", doesn't do it in the REAL WORLD, only in theory. What actually happens is employers don't pay more for American talent, they pay less for Indian and Pakistani talent.

The labor market in the United States is competing for the best Indian talent, not the best American talent, get it? No, you don't get it, I know you don't. You're brainwashed by your wealthy capitalist employer-lords/gods, who have sold you a lie, that you can and will become like them. The odds of that happening are about zero. You watch too much FOX News, Hollywood, greedy televangelists, church pastors, preaching sermons about how you can become rich if you give them more money. God supposedly wants you to be a rich capitalist. You're brainwashed.

Working-class, blue-collar apologists of capitalism, defend a system that keeps them poor and disenfranchised from the political process, undermining democracy (the rule of the people).

I've never claimed them to be useless.

For thir proper applications, they are indeed effective.

But stopping viruses that are hundreds of times smaller than the gaps in the mask is not their proper application, nor is wearing them for hours at a time.

Except that's why surgeons wear them, dummy.

The entire #CoronaHoax2020 was all about politics. One has to be incredibly ignorant, at this point, to sincerely believe that it was ever about protecting anyone from any disease; that it was ever about anything other than an excuse for corrupt criminals who infest positions of power to seize and abuse more of that power, to the detriment of those of us that they are supposed to serve.

Yes, it was all a conspiracy to make ugly ass Mormons wear their masks so we don't have to look at them. Of course.

So you want surgeons to stop wearing masks then...

Over Million dead Americans and you think it was so somebody could force you to wear a mask...

Just think of what you are saying...

I don't think he bothers to think. I think for the Trump Cult it's about being unable to admit they made a mistake.
