Pelosi‘s Utter Disregard for the Americans that Power America

Small business is the engine of America. It employs millions of Americans in thousands of types of jobs. More often than not, small business owners live in a month to month environment. They strive to bring enough business in to cover their monthly payroll, rent, utilities, cost of goods and eek out a paycheck for themselves. There are low seasons and high seasons, low months and high months, and at the end of the day some thrive and some survive. Yet the importance of small business to our economy cannot be underestimated. It provides 48 percent of all jobs in America, and 18 percent of all US employees work for companies with less than 20 employees.
There are 30.2 million small businesses in this country which comprises an astounding 99.9% of all United States businesses. They employ 58.9 million people. Small business accounts for the most job growth year after year in America.
Many of these small businesses are looking for a life raft to survive in the midst of this mandated government shutdown. While Speaker Pelosi and Congress negotiate the needed funds with a selfish respect to their own political gain⏤small business owners and employees are drowning in the waters of the pandemic. 
Small business owners are not big corporations with huge amounts of cash socked away. They literally live and die on the day to day business they create. There is no business now for far too many of them. The first relief money was gone so fast, it left millions of business owners and their employees in limbo.
When the bill came up to replenish, Nancy and her democrat colleagues wanted to add in things like mail in ballots, extra money for “disadvantaged” businesses, money for hospitals and state and local governments, and money to bolster food stamp benefits. They can and should put any of those needs in a different bill and pass a clean relief bill for small business immediately.
Like millions of small business owners, I take this very personally. Like millions of small business owners, I applied on day one of the first stimulus program. I applied through Chase bank who sent a form email that they received my package and never heard another word until I learned the money had run out. I could not call Chase, I could get no answers. I am doing everything I can do to save my business that I have put my life into, and that my employees, good people all, have put their faith and efforts into. Like millions of other small business owners, I have had a successful and thriving business and have shared that with all of my employees. I pay my taxes, I give back to society, I create employment, and then the plug is pulled on all our lives overnight.

Nancy, these are real peoples lives. Good Americans with children and bills and medical needs and extended families who are being laid off all over America.

These are business owners who have risked everything to see a need and try to fulfill it for society and who create jobs, not for stick figures, but for real people. You and congress are destroying these businesses every day you hold up the funding.
You all left and went on vacation while people’s lives and futures were disintegrating. My employees had to be laid off and have not seen one bit of unemployment money. I did all the right things to obtain the PPP loan to save them, but money ran out and has not been replaced due to your partisan games with peoples lives. It is painful for business owners to watch the damage you are causing to their lives and the lives of the employees who are like family to us.
Your political game of wanting to give more to “disadvantaged” businesses is flat out wrong. We are all disadvantaged right now and not one of us has any more or less right to getting the help from this relief package you are denying us. There is no business owner  more or less worthy than me, nor any employee more or less worthy than mine. We are all equal and deserve to be treated as such. For you, Nancy, to say that some are more equal smacks of your favorite word, discrimination.
We are ALL wondering and agonizing how to pay our rent this month, how to keep our employees’ medical paid, how to keep the lights on. We are worried about piling on debt we can never get out from under. Employees likewise are worrying about their rent and bills, car payments, food, credit card bills and incurring too much debt to climb out of.

Not only are you showing your heartlessness Nancy, it is just plain stupid to destroy the engine that powers America.

We understand that the end goal of blaming President Trump for the economic downturn is your only goal⏤and you are willing to cause that downturn to achieve the said goal in the hopes it will cost him the election. But these are real peoples lives you are using as pawns in your win at all costs game.
We in small businesses will never forget that your hatred of one man has stripped us of our lifetimes of work and our employees of a piece of their futures. Do the right thing for small business and get a clean bill passed now. For once Nancy, put your rich egotistical self aside and think of the suffering you are causing by withholding funds for people with one foot off the cliff, and waiting for a helping hand to survive.

An Immediate Threat to America’s Sovereignty

An Immediate Threat to America’s Sovereignty

Our children and our children’s children and theirs will have no idea how it feels to live in a free society unless we demand that our rule of law and our Constitutional rights be reinstated and that the reckoning comes for the global disaster we have all survived. The next assault on U.S. sovereignty and that of other nations are the treaties proposed by WHO…

Joe Biden Is Right! Trump’s MAGA Movement “Are a Different Breed of Cat”

With no thanks to $1.9 trillion in blowout Democrat spending, America is experiencing four-decade high skyrocketing inflation, now at 8.3% compared with 1.7% inherited from Trump a mere year and a half ago when Biden took office. As for being “a different breed,” that’s a very welcome contrast with disastrous domestic and foreign policies his administration has already foisted…

Buffalo and NY State police authorities knew of the teen’s derangement and made some early efforts to corral him, but he still got loose. It’s they who should be held responsible, not Tucker Carlson. Mass shootings have become a common recurrence, it seems. This time last year, we experienced a similar number of mass shootings, on average ten per week. 2021 ended with 693 mass shootings, and there were 417 in 2019. What’s happened?

Mortgage applications to purchase a home dropped 12% on a weekly basis and are down 15% compared with the same week one year ago. The housing bubble will not survive without low interest rates. Neither will the stock market bubble. Fed Chair Jerome Powell told a Wall Street Journal conference that the U.S. central bank will “have to consider moving more aggressively”…

Race-Baiting Is the Name, and Gun-Grabbing Is the Game

Listening to Governor Hochul will leave an outsider to believe that Buffalo, NY, is filled with hatred and a place where there is the extremism of white people against black people, which is far from the truth. There should be crimes against criminal politicians who use isolated tragedies to advance their political platforms that feed into their nefarious agendas…

The Power to Shape the Narrative is the Power to Control the Outcome

Setting up the “Disinformation Board” and rolling it out under the DHS moved the “Overton Window” of conceivable action closer to the Marxist ideal of information control. While they’d have liked to “legitimize” their influence on media companies with edicts from a DHS Board, the ideological alignment of the major media companies is already working steadily to undermine…

Just listen to Biden gloating that his administration is very successful. Is Biden not the perfect example? All that is going wrong under his watch – although Democrats are the majority in the House and Senate and the Presidency – Joe Biden blames citizen Trump, Putin, or any ‘other’ entity but NOT himself…

Even more shocking is that McCormick and Oz came in paying about $200 per vote received, with Barnette averaging $16 per vote, and she is almost within five percent of the vote with the other two. t was certainly the race of the decade with some unexpected turns.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…
