We have the results of Grassfire's "Reopen America?" Poll. More than 15,000 team members voted and overwhelmingly called for an immediate end to the lockdowns, shutdowns and quarantines:
YES! Reopen America! -- 86.7%
NO! Stay Closed! -- 13.3%
In light of today's horrible economic news, "Get America Working Again!" could soon become a rallying cry for our entire nation. See tonight's BREAKING NEWS update below for more information. --Grassfire
The Labor Department reported today that another 4.4 million Americans lost their jobs last week. The total number of unemployed in this country is now an astonishing (and sickening) 26 million. That's 16% of the U.S. labor force!
Roughly one in six Americans have lost their job in the past five weeks. At the peak of the 2008 financial crisis, unemployment wasn't higher than 10%!
According to FOX Business, today's new unemployment number wipes out "the entirety of the 22.78 million labor market gains since the Great Recession more than a decade ago. ... The previous one-week high for jobless claims was 695,800 in 1982."
Again, AMERICA HAS LOST 26 MILLION JOBS IN FIVE WEEKS! Isn't it time to end the draconian lockdowns, shutdowns and quarantines imposed by federal, state and local governments? Shouldn't today's horrific economic news call for reopening America as soon as possible?
On March 22, President Trump tweeted, "We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself." How much worse can the "cure" get? This total devastation of the once-roaring U.S. economy is bringing additional pain, suffering and misery to tens of millions of Americans who aren't even sick!
What's worse is that the decision to shutdown America and keep it closed is likely based on BAD SCIENCE and WILDLY INACCURATE MODELS. In today's CounterDrudge Coronavirus headlines, Grassfire exposes more evidence why LOCKDOWNS DON'T WORK! It's time to end them NOW!
