It may be too late now, but wiser heads should have seen this coming and figured out how to create a "pause" before this global pandemic eroded over a decades' worth of economic progress and growth.'
Thats not how the world works Tony, it is complex, more complex than "wiser heads" can understand.
Even people that deal with complexity didn't understand the ramifications of what a full-lockdown meant.
This is a problem whose only solutions are time and patience, but panic and uncertainty shouldn't have been allowed to hollow out the erstwhile solid foundations laid by the hard work and due diligence of productive workers.
LOL the MSM once they realized could be used against Trump have been doing nothing but inducing panic. Even on the DR, banner headlines of only 20,000 people testing positive, 3 Million on unemployment, and the DRLeft is running around happy people are dying and others losing their jobs, why? Because the hold it against Trump. Much like you will.
Your post is so naive, it makes me wonder if you have been paying attention at all, certainly your understanding of complex issues has been suspect, but now its pretty clear you haven't the faintest idea of what "hard work and due diligence" is.
