Despite the persistent, politically motivated doomsday talk, the stock market just keeps on rolling upward. The talk is of overpriced stocks but perhaps the price to core earnings ratios aren’t as bad as promoted, and the markets are headed further upward.

https://gordcollins.com/stock-market/factors-forecasts/

The United States added 1.8 million jobs in July, a pullback from the gains of May and June, and evidence that the resurgent coronavirus has weakened hiring and the economic rebound.

The economic markets are holding positive as long term investors see this period of hardship as temporary while physical markets show they are desperate to get up and running but need the employees who may have been on unemployment. The buyers either due to fear or state mandates are slow to stimulate the economy.

Another example of why the cure may be worse than the virus itself. As millions may face eviction, medical insurance issues, or the economic woes as a factor related to the high rates of depression and suicide.

You are correct about the cure may be worse than the virus itself. The mantra seems to be "Save a life, destroy a family".

Expect to see a tremendous rise in homelessness, bankruptcies, alcoholism, depression, suicide, etc. This will dwarf the actual deaths factually contributed to the coronavirus by comparison.

As it currently stands now, it will take years for this country to recover, if at all possible, and the the subsequent national debt will be impossible to be repaid. The collapse of the entire financial system of the US is inevitable. At that point. this country, in practical sustainable terms will cease to exist. Evidence of this is already seen in the political acceptance and encouragement of looting, rioting, arson, assault, and murder.

Democrats are not the party of law & order or respect private property as witnessed by coddling of vandals and other such criminals. They are generous though in handling out money that doesn't belong to them and by doing so lavishly in a misguided fashion will eventually destroy the United States of America. It is interesting, but not surprising that all the cities with civil unrest are run by Democrats.

It is time that we went aheas and bite the bullet. We have a debt that needs repayment which means we need others to pay their debts, cut government waste and meaningless government projects, cut out unconstitutional departments, and divert some of the tax dollar to paying off the debt. This also means finding alternative ways to handle problems for example could a natural disaster recover without the aid of FEMA? Well it did in the past before FEMA. It will force states to be more responsible and not depend on big brother like the Democratic mayors who want federal money to bail them out of their weak handling of riots. This means citizens must work towards this goal too on a united front much like in WW2 with war bonds. We could do the same.

Just forgive all the debts and start over.
You can forgive cant you? Or the world bank can, or are they incapable of having an amnesty.

God forgives. why cant we?

Who is dependent on the Federal Government? I found this information quite interesting. How many blue states in the top ten?

Bible says Proverbs 22:7 (NIV), "The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender."

Who will pay the debts to forgive them?

er the rich people. the ones who own the bank.
God forgives and He is rich. He forgives us cos He sent Jesus to pay for our sin. Something we could not do. As it would cost us our lives.

If you are rich you CAN afford to forgive others.
