Posted on 04/28/2020 12:56:35 PM PDT by JV3MRC
The farcical New York Times dealt with the question of re-opening our coronavirus-devastated economy by stoking progressive alarmism about racial and economic inequality. The Times published a preposterous story headlined with a false equivalency, Job or Health? Restarting the Economy Threatens to Worsen Economic Inequality. Author Jim Tankersley grumbled in the sub-headline that The coronavirus recession has exacerbated the racial and income divides in America. Tankersley continued: Lifting restrictions too soon will make them worse and leave workers with a bleak choice. That logic taken out of the dustbin of progressive economics was plastered on the front page of The Times April 28, print edition.

“Economic inequality” is part of life.
Economic opportunity is the fruit of liberty.
Economic stagnation is the penalty of government.
Pure ComDem Insanity!
Economic Inequality if Economy Restarts
We can only be equal if we’re equally impoverished. What does that sound like?
You can make them live ubder socialism where everyone is equal. Equally poor. Well, except the guys running the show who become fabulously wealthy (mostly off the books, of course).
This is total bullshit. It’s white collar upper income workers who can work from home on computers who still have jobs. It’s working people who are taking the brunt of this.
You just knew this was coming
Rural America never needed to shut down at all
Only in High population density areas, especially those dependent on rapid transit, was the clamp down even useful.
The Atlanta area, for example, was a problem,
the rest of Ga. not so much
The Entire Eastern Seaboard megalopolis was a problem
Upstate NY, Vermont, Maine, W.Va. not so much
examples all across America. can’t apply zipcode level controls without getting some constituencies pantys in a wad
But you just knew that the Al Sharptons of this world would chime in with... wait for it... discrimination
If the reader to economy doesn’t restart, everybody goes down the tubes.
Let’s see just how many of these “minorities” remain in New York City when red states reopen and their economies start to boom again, while New York continues to remain in economy crippling lockdowns.
Cuomo is going to have to build a new Berlin Wall to keep them in.
Even upstate New York should never have been shut down.
It’s time for all the NYT employees to find a new career field, at entry level wages, without cubicles!!!
Leftists would make good fodder for a cartoon. . . oh yeah, like South Park
How do they come up with this Schiff?
From each according to their abilities.
To each according to their needs.
Instead of making everyone poor?
Economic inequity is what motivates people to better themselves.
So......everyone being broke and miserable, so long as there’s more “equality”, so long as everyone is miserable to about the same degree, is better than some doing well, and others doing no worse than they are now? You’re stupid, policy wise. You’re stupid vocabulary-wise (you think equal means “sameness”), and you’re too simply too stupid to have an intelligent debate with.
Sick of these race baiters
So with that grammatical statement, he thinks it won’t.
Airline pilots are the highest hourly wage earners, and they don’t get paid if they don’t fly. They are suffering.
