"To all the screaming Karens: You've fired a few million workers and some of them even include you"

To all the screaming Karens: You’ve fired a few million workers and some of them even include you.

Retail sales for April were 22% below last year’s figures.

No stores open, no bars and restaurants open, nobody actually spending money.  “Oh, you can order out.”  Uh huh.  The volume of business collapsed anyway.

That means no tax receipts.  No sales taxes.

It means commercial property, which has property taxation at much higher rates than residences, is now worthless.

This is not limited to restaurants and bars; it also applies to office buildings since everyone is being told to not come into the office but “work from home.”  Firms have figured out that it’s not worth paying that crazy-high rent for the nice building, which means what you did is permanent.

Retailers are not coming back — well, they might reopen long enough for their going out of business sale and the tax revenue destruction you caused with your screaming and crying is permanent.

Got a government pension?  It’s not going to be paid.

Got a government job?  You’re at high risk of being fired or having your pay cut dramatically.

Are you a teacher?  You demanded the schools close, so there’s no need for teachers.  Or janitors.  Or lunch room employees.  Or Principals, Vice-Principals, school nurses, “Special” folks for kids with “special needs” and similar.  Fire them all, sell the school property off and that’s that.

Will it be better in May?  Maybe.  Will people come back if you can’t actually sit at the bar and carouse with the other people there?  I have no idea — but as of right now, and May is half over, while I can go to food and drink places around here I still can’t sit at the bar and like it or not, people won’t come back in volume until and unless they can.  Not one restaurant or bar can survive without being permitted to run at 100% occupancy.


Nor have the layoffs and firings stopped.  That much is clear from the weekly data; it was not a “one time” thing at all and in fact continues week by week, even though some states are partially opening back up!  The damage the screamers did is permanent and continuing.

Oh, and then there are these pesky facts — none of the places that have reopened have seen a “surge” in infections and deaths.  Neither did Sweden, which not only didn’t close schools they didn’t lock down either, and they also did a crap job of protecting nursing home residents.  In other words the facts are that the lockdowns did nothing, we destroyed the economy for no purpose, and that is no longer a belief based on expectations from science — it is now a proved fact.

What I also know is that if you’re a screaming Karen you’ve slit your own throat and when you wind up broke and under a freeway overpass holding a piece of cardboard begging for food I hope there’s a puddle nearby to drive through.

    They will get rid of the teachers before the cops as they need the latter to try and keep a lid on the chaos.

    Why the quotes around “special needs” children? Does the author of this article deny that there are children who do need special help?

      This site has gone to hell ever since it decided to pretend that nothing in the world is going on except covid 19.

      That just extends the plank out a little further for them. It’ll eventually catch up.

    Unfortunately, teachers and so-called “public education” administration continue to be paid, despite the schools being closed, because the Cult needs its “indoctrination programmers”, because they are the MOST important employees, to the matrix control system Cult. So the screaming Karens will continue to be paid, even when not ‘working’, and will continue to do their job of indoctrination children into PC belief system they are programming them with. Teachers, especially so-called “professors” at colleges and universities, are perhaps the MOST brainwashed of all, and they sincerely believe in the ideology, with which they are indoctrinating and programming young people. That’s what makes them so nasty – they are satanically possessed by the matrix control system, hard-core believers of the Cult. And this IS a “cult” – the cult of the matrix! All the muzzle-mask pod-people are lost souls, who will line up to take their vaccine(s). BTW, “vaccination” = 666 in gematria conversion, but probably just a coincidence, like all the 33, 57 (5G), 88, 6(666), and A113 (anti-christ rising on 11/3, date of next election?), etc…..

    (…nothing to see here, just move along, follow orders, and take your shots…?)

      So, you taught yourself to read and write, correct? You didn’t have a teacher to help you, is that so?

      1. Per says

        what do your comment have to do with his?
        You clearly did not have anyone teaching you how to read.
        Oh, by the way, i could read and write b4 i started @ school, it is called parenting and i did not need a teacher for that😉+ my teachers were not lunatic liberals that wanted 4 and 5 year old kids to learn about anal sex and 6 gorillion different sexes either.
        Reading your woke comment make me believe you did tho.

    Not sure where the idea came from that teachers wanted the lockdown. I am a teacher, and lockdown is the last thing I wanted. It’s the university “authorities”, understandably afraid to step out of line because of their dependence on government funding, who have been coerced and blackmailed into taking part in this joke.
