  • From TProphet:

    @lizabeth_kb @docstardust @ethanjweiss Politicians want to call you heroes while mowing you all down with covid so the Dow Jones Industrial Average *might* go up a few points. If the IT industry were being asked to do the same thing, we’d very likely shut everything off until politicians decided not to be stupid.

    @imonous @riz_ahmed1977 @Lucretia_Lain @ArthurEMeyerIV @JonPC16 @elonmusk @GerberKawasaki @thirdrowtesla It’s 100% an option. Sorry, peoples lives matter far more than imaginary lines like GDP growth and the DOW Jones. Musk should be calling for a temporary UBI, giving his employees better insurance, etc, not demanding sacrifices to pad his wallet.

  • From jwlarrabee:

    A President’s 1st responsibility is to defend the people from all threats whether foreign or domestic. Trump narrowly focused on helping the rich. He eliminated our defenses against the Pandemic. He failed to protect us. All he cared about was the Dow Jones Indusrial. Average.
