With SNAP $ running out, SNAP has released February's benefits TODAY!!! Now's your opportunity with the end of the world to go out and get that lobster everyone is raving about!!! I've always wanted a pet lobster like on that Simpsons episode.
Obviously the Shutdown has us all in contention casting blame on everyone but Trump. America has failed in its economic policy and has played a big role in our current crisis. We debate over what to do about guns; we debate about whether or not to fund corporations or the people; and we debate about natural disasters and car accidents.
With the large number of deaths from car accidents what is a government to establish as policy?
1. Nothing; must keep people employed
2. Deny Teens and the Elderly
3. 3 Strikes
4. Drivers Court
5. Case by Case basis
6. Pre-Crime categorization
7. All Mass Transit
8. All Automation
In this example transportation is a basic necessity. Without transportation we cannot acquire our necessities. I take the bus for example. I cannot get food for a month in one trip; so I either take several trips throughout the month or several trips at the beginning or end of the month on the same day. The correct answer for what policy will be safer for travel is either #7 or #8, because every policy a government makes has consequences either good or bad and when you deal with a right of the people, that right cannot be abridged in any form. So we need transportation but we need protection from accidental death and injury; to punish people by denying them transportation will not produce good results. To do nothing to punish people will also not produce good results. To improve civilization policies must think outside the box not within the Party box or some other categorical box. But when Corporations bribe our leaders to alter laws to favor the Corporations everyone suffers.
With the Trump Shutdown many MANY are losing their jobs and not getting paid added to those in America who are already poor. It is in the best interests of Big Business to give up their wealth to elevate the poor. When people do not have access to food and basic necessities they steal it to survive. Big Businesses will be the prime targets. We will have a Les Miserables on our hands as businesses scream at the government for more protection to arrest those needing food to survive, overcrowding our Jails beyond their already overcrowded status; rioting will then occur, because people don't want to die. At this point Trump will then get his Martial Law where no business will ever again obtain a profit.
Trump will not let up on the government shutdown; therefore it is in the best interests of big business to step in and give up their wealth to the people. Big Business needs to put pressure on Trump to relent and stop the Shutdown with your typical financial threats through lobbying. Big Business will be the big losers either way now.
Windows forced me to update my systems, but this time when starting up and accessing the computer AVG detected a Virus Attack - just for accessing the internet, not a bad link!!! Not cool Windows!!!
28 December 2018 Update: I talked with a worker from the 800 # who told me that Utah's Server had gone down and is still down. The location of the 800# also had their Server just restored. She told me she had no information of what caused it.
