In the face of dual pandemics it's State Governments feeling the economic pain - stupid

Recommended Posts

Once again, just like way back in 2007, the State governments are facing terrible times. It's this Yo Yo economic tragedy we face once again anew.

We see now the problems that so many people faced prior to the corona pandemic, and yes, people of color, the last to get hired, the first to get fired, are getting hit hard. And all this hits the state governments hard.

The public sector jobs are in bad shape and it's not looking good anytime soon. All this was the last thing we needed. But hopefully, just maybe, more people will start to understand the truth.


Now is the time to think and work together, and it will take grass root organizations with real people doing all the heavy lifting regarding making people think, and vote, and push hard until we can get what we need. The US congress needs to pass new spending bills soon that will help the states so they do not have to make desperate cuts. Once we get past this Covid-19  we need to push hard for big time structural economic change.

We need to set important priorities - I know a lot of people laughed at the Green New Deal, but by now we need to realize that it's a vital path forward that will improve all peoples lives, and restore all our true purpose. 


Yep, we all face difficult times ahead - that's no joke. Hard work and people working together like never before - bigger than any going to the moon project, or any horrible war, we are at an inflection point in human history. And it's going to take all the best engineers, and all the best medicine, and it's going to take all the best science,  and a whole lot of empathy, and a whole lot of people who absolutely do care, to restore our faith in who we are.  The time is now! I can feel it.

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 

  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.

  • grgle

  • Where’s at @slideman?

  • Hola

  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems

  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2


  • Where does it say 2?

  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 

  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 

  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?

  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.

  • Mine too. 

  • I thought it was my location.. 

  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight

  • OK thanks


  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.

  • All lives matter.

  • Double post deleted.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.


    This one is made for me.

    Being offended does not make one correct. 

  • By teacher

    I still own this cat box.

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."

  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 

  • Where’s all the hot bitches? 

  • By teacher

    Kidding me?
