De Blasio says federal government should
take ownership of 'crucial factories and
industries' to combat coronavirus

Original Article

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio advocated for nationalizing certain industries to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus. While appearing on MSNBC's AM Joy, host Joy Reid asked de Blasio how someone in New York City should go about getting tested during the growing COVID-19 pandemic. "People can get tested according to a priority structure, and it's not enough testing. It's just as simple as that," de Blasio said, later claiming that the city has been "pleading" with the federal government for additional testing. "Here's the reality. This is a war-like situation. We're in a wartime scenario with a 'Mar-a-Lago attitude' being used by the federal government, right?"

Imagine applying the DMV to everything you rely on. You want food? Fill out a form and wait in line. You want gas for your car? Fill out a form and wait in line. You need roof repair or an electrician or a plumber or ...? Fill out a form and wait in line. By the way, the people providing those services will be taxpayer funded, unionized employees who'll get 5, 15 minute breaks a day, all federal holidays off, and 8 hour work shifts - weekend work, if any, will be time and half or double pay.

You would have to be a nitwit to believe that bumbling bureaucrats could run the factories and industries that the socialist de Blasio was talking about, more efficiently then the current corporate and private owners. In addition a lot of the manufacturing capabilities of those factories and industries are not even located in the USA, but are in China, where the Monday morning quarterbacking de Blasio and his bureaucrats would be laughed at. The corona virus only became a serious issue for the USA weeks ago, resulting in President Trump closing down all travel routes used by foreigners from China where the virus first appeared and was identified, into the USA. There is no doubt that Trump’s quick action with his so-called travel ban stopped the immediate importation of a large amount of the virus into the USA where it would have infected a lot of Americans. Remember the leftist and liberal Democrat response to that Trump action was to call him a racist and a xenophobe. De Blasio says that all Americans should be immediately tested. To do that would take a minimum of 325 million diagnostic test kits for the corona virus already been manufactured, refrigerated, and stored ready for use all over the USA. Anyone with common sense knows that it takes some time for that many effective diagnostic test kits after a specific novel virus, like this corona variant is discovered, to be designed, manufactured, refrigerated, and to be on hand ready for distribution across the USA. Obviously the USA has not got there yet. De Blasio should be asked why after the two big epidemics that the Obama-Biden Administration experienced during their eight years in office why that Administration did not ensure that enough such diagnostic test kits were manufactured and on hand to test all Americans before they left office?

Fascism 101. I do have a concern, however, with whoever at Google is playing politics with the website commitment: Capitalism functions best with COMPETITION. President Trump should have several private companies competing for as many aspects of defeating the virus threat as possible - akin to awarding defense contracts. No single-sourcing on any of it. In particular: Google should be in competition with companies like GoDaddy, Symantec, and even liberal Microsoft for development of the website!

This has got to be the dumbest idea I have heard in 50 years. Government takeover would put, for the most, individuals in charge of businesses they have no experience in running. Okay, let us say that the gov picks operators so smart and wise that in six months to ten years they will have the skills to run the businesses we need now. But in these units for the present, we will have chaos.

Posted by ladydawgfan 3/16/2020 4:47:54 AM Post Reply
Claim: Joe Biden said Sunday night that the Trump tax cuts of 2017 and Fed rate cuts of 2019 have left the U.S. unable to afford measures needed to stabilize the American economy during the coronavirus crisis. “The problem is the policies of this administration. Economically have we eaten a lot of our seed corn here,” Biden said during the Democrat presidential debate. “The ability of us to use leverages that were available before have been used up by this god-awful tax cut of $1.9 trillion and the fact that we have used, the fed will be of little consequence now. They’ve already used what leverage they have.” Verdict: False.

The coronavirus is only partly about a killer illness that's taking down too many people. It's also about the disruption of life - from the missing toilet paper on store shelves to the painful ending of church masses and services, to the cancellations of weddings and travel, to the fears for the economy. Most of all, it's about the isolation, the forced 'social distancing' that's exactly the opposite of our human desire to gather and be together in times of crisis. It's the right thing to do to protect each other (since none of us knows if we are carriers) and the aim is right, too -

Economic forecaster Lakshman Achuthan is seeing an encouraging market pattern that indicates the economy may avoid a recession. He boils it down in a chart of how commodity prices are doing.

On Sunday evening, the remaining candidates with a real shot at the Democratic nomination will meet in Washington amid a pandemic to state why they should be chosen to lead the nation. In many ways, the debate will vary from all others held since last summer. Instead of a large and diverse field of candidates, only two old, white men remain. And instead of testing their styles and one-liners in front of a crowd, this meeting will lack an audience. With so much stripped away, the candidates will either shine or fail. At this moment, it seems that the nomination is former Vice President Joe Biden's to lose.

On Saturday morning, deranged anti-Trumper George Conway took to Twitter in hopes of having a real gotcha moment by showing a screenshot of a memo from White House Physician Sean P. Conley, which indicates that he is not an M.D. "So the White House physician isn’t an M.D.," he tweeted. "Good Lord. Someone sneeze on me now and just get it over with." (Snip) After this initial tweet, Conway probably googled what a DO is before making the follow-up tweet, "Betcha the first patient, who fancies people with the best degrees (until they tell him he doesn’t know what he’s talking about), doesn’t know, and doesn’t know what a DO is."

In the photo accompanying his tribute, the Forrest Gump actor showcased his breakfast, featuring a tube of Vegemite, with a kangaroo toy nearby.
