HEADLINES: COMMONWEALTH CITIZEN PROPOSES A NEW GROUP CHAT
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - A Commonwealth Citizen suggested that the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company switch group chats. This comes at a time when Discord has bloated to become more than its simple and basic communication application to… Just a lot of gimmicky stuff.
I’ve also discovered that Discord. Irishkaiser will bring it up with the rest soon as he’s finished gathering sugar or whatever.
EDITORIAL - The US is doing fair. The Americans are not.
Irishkaiser - There is too much negative news and too much fingerpointing in the United States. The internal political issues are the only things that are preventing the United States from controlling the virus in a satisfactory manner. They are their own worse enemies and it really is mindboggingly stupid to know that the people who claim that the White House didn’t do enough or even act are the very same people who prevented them from acting in the first place with their own asinine political pressure.
Some may excuse their criticism of the federal government that indeed the government’s actions weren’t the best and America deserves only the best, but they’re certainly not helping that’s for sure.
Do you remember that time when President Donald Trump wanted firm action such as a travel ban on the affected countries? What the fuck did the people do? They fucking bullied him and politically made it costly to go through with it. They all called him a xenophobe and a racist. Seriously? Fucking seriously?
Who helped spread the myth of how it’s JUST THE FLU, BRO and HURR DURR DONALD TRUMP BAD WANTS TO USE CORONAVIRUS FOR HIS WALL HURR DURR FUCK ME IN THE ASS made shit worse for everybody.
Of course, it could be understandable. I come from a country that had recent interaction with outbreaks. I may have been young but I remembered SARS and H5N1. I’m also well-traveled and have encountered people controlling the spread of MERS. A lot of you Americans who are reading this may not even know what those acronyms mean.
So maybe it’s because we know what it’s like to not take it seriously and the United States hasn’t experienced a traumatic level of an outbreak since Influenza and that’s such a distant memory.
Others have argued about something something Donald Trump took away funding for CDC and shit. Well you fuckers wanted it in the first place because YOU TRY UNTANGLING THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL BUDGET
You people already spend 1,215 BILLION DOLLARS on Health and Human Services ALONE. More than ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH. If it’s not rewarding you such a good exchange, do you think dumping more money and taking from others is that good?
Yes a lot of is political, a lot of it is also practical.
Let’s be honest here, Veterans are a waste of money. Objectively speaking it is. But would you have the courage to dismantle it and send the money to other departments? No. You’d be seen as a monster.
How about something more politically palatable. Cutting down the military. You want to take away money from Defense? Oh good you just fired thousands of service members and at the same time put a lot of people out of work who are building weapons and supplies for the military because nobody’s buying anything from them. Congratulations. I hope you enjoy increasing unemployment and a bunch of people who lost their jobs because of you.
Untangling and surgically re-arranging the budget should have a department in itself. We live in one of the cleanest eras in all of human history. Health and hygiene have never been more widespread. To take away some money from the CDC would have, to people over there at the time be seen as one of the only few viable options for cutting spending elsewhere because people all agreed before to put money there.
Be honest, you want to spend more and more. But it’s not that easy. Well, it is… So as long as you’re willing to increase debt. What’s another twenty trillion dollars anyway?

FINANCE - US Stimulus Package boosts Economy
All eyes are on the US and China right now as both their economies have seen a degree of upturn and in turn it may be an attempt to stabilize global financial health. At the same time, the world is adapting to the situations relatively fast. Though it is true many are of course running on borrowed time(cash).
The Clan Bank will not make any moves until after we’re sure the economy has normalized.
