Whoa! I wouldn't have expected you to support opening up.

 

Thoughts?

In the Trumptard era, it's about self. I can maintain a relatively detached life and enjoy it. I have a nice place, a pool, a pretty big yard, and don't have to worry about money for a long time. Everyone else who may need to work shoulder to shoulder and risk death to survive? Fuck em. That's what is being proposed. I'm preparing for that. Open the economy up full steam! My stocks have come back strong.
I would like to have personal testing anytime I want though. Only a few people can get that right now but it will come.

Do you understand what will happen if we hit a great depression? Or hyper inflation?

 

It's about more than just stocks, even though stocks are important.

 

Even worse. We hit a depression before a vaccine comes out and we have a crashed economy and a pandemic?

 

I think we can find ways to protect our vulnerable people without government oversight.

 

Considering old age homes were infected with government oversight anyway.

 

EDIT. I can't tell if you're being sarcastic? Broken meter?

 

I feel like you are sending mixed signals.

fun fact: nearly all of the people who are getting fired in this scene were real people who lost their jobs in the weeks before the shooting. good movie overall...

 

If the individuals who are told they're being laid-off in Jason Reitman's film Up in the Air look genuinely devastated, that's because they're not acting. Rather than cast actors for those scenes, Reitman instead cast real people who had recently lost their jobs.

To find them, he placed ads in local newspapers in two cities that were hit hard by the Great Recession: Detroit and St. Louis. During auditions, people were asked what it was like to lose their job in a horrible economy, and to reenact their response to being fired, or, if they preferred, to act out how they wished they had reacted.
