What is not essential about a thriving economy, low unemployment and people being able to sufficiently supply for themselves and their families as well as give to others out of their abundance.
I am in no way trying to minimize the seriousness of the virus, nor the people that have died from complication caused by it, nor am I denying that it's real, as I personally know people that got the virus. But why are we wrecking the economy? How many people will die and be caused lasting harm due to economic downturn? Meanwhile, the government is choosing winners and losers, by deciding who is essential and who is not, forcing business to close left and right, while Amazon grabs even a larger piece of the market and it's stock price rose 10% over the past month.
We'll have choices when this is over. Costco, Walmart and Amazon. Ahhhh I feel better now.

They are just making a bigger welfare state. They shut everything down but open up feeding kids from the school cause it's the government who will feed the children not the parents who had them. Or the bigger unemployment checks. $15 an hour to sit at home...
I'm not going to refuse their stimulus check. I'm buying cheap stocks and bullets with it
