“Jane, you ignorant slut.”

Fed’s Kashkari calls for 6-week economic shutdown to control coronavirus spread
Neel Kashkari warns that the rest of 2020 could be much worse than what America has experienced so far

Not just no, but “fuck you, you should get a Pinochet helicopter ride” no.

Anyone with this little grasp of how economies actually work should be barred from ever holding a government position.

Figures he’s the president of the Minneapolis Fed.

Mr. Kashkari, do you want people to starve this winter?

Do you want people to freeze this winter?

Do you want people to die because they can’t get to a doctor for an urgent medical emergency this winter?

More to the point, since after all you’re from Minneapolis, ARE YOU A FUCKING COMMIE?

His partner in crime on his NYT op-ed is Dr. Michael T. Osterholm, the director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.  Another commie, an academic one this time, from Minnesota.

This clown Kashkari is also acting Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Financial Stability.  WHAT?

BOOT THE FUCKER.  He’s an idiot.  He doesn’t remember hard times; he was born in 1973, right when the shit got tough for the first time since the Great Depression.  Grew up under Reagan and Bush during much better economic times.  He doesn’t have a gut instinct to tell him that fucking with the economy as he proposes is a BIG FUCKING MISTAKE.

You can’t just shut things down.  Look at the limited shutdowns with all the exceptions we’ve had since March.  We brought our economy practically to its knees just by closing down gyms and restaurants.

And here we have yet another reason why the Fed needs to be destroyed.  Not just audited — destroyed, razed to the ground, and the earth under it salted.

The fact is, this virus is out there and it will never, ever go away.  You could wish for the flu and the common cold to go away with equal futility.  We need to learn to live with it and we need to get our bodies able to fight it off.

There is not going to be a vaccine.  It’s a fucking coronavirus.  And even if there is something the medicos call a vaccine, figure it will never be anywhere close to 100% effective.  I figure 30% tops.  So our supposed betters in the government, who don’t know any more about this shit than the rest of us, need to stop pegging a full re-opening to the availability of a vaccine.  It ain’t gonna happen and we may as well stop trying to destroy our economy hoping for it.

Indeed, it sounds like we’d be better off catching a cold and educating our T-cells about what the damn thing looks like. Some of us may already have this sort of protection — it may be what makes the difference between asymptomatic/mild cases and full-blown cases of SARS-CoV2.  People who “never get colds” may or may not have that sort of protection.  In fact, all the incessant hand-washing that’s being recommended may be preventing people from catching standard colds and building T-cell immunities that might work against the WuFlu.  Who knows?

But whatever happens, governments need to stop fucking up our economy in misguided (and possibly fully-intended) efforts to kill the WuFlu, before they kill the engine that makes our country and way of life possible.  People like Neel Kashkari, who clearly don’t understand the damage their proposals would do, need to be removed from positions of authority when they get in the way of our lives.
