A few days ago, I received mail from my job informing me that I was permanently laid off and unable to be part of their relocation program which means that I was effectively fired. The official day of the firing was on April 6th, 2020, which is noticeable because this is the day that so many high-profit businesses will be getting free money from the government. It seems that instead of the $500 billion of free government money preventing businesses from laying people off, businesses have pocketed the taxpayer money and laid people off anyway in the US. That’s what happens when you elect a moron as your country’s leader.
That being said, I am not distraught. I suspected something like this would happen eventually and it is happening to millions of others throughout the US. I’ll just have to pick-up the pieces whenever the Coronavirus-19 Pandemic is effectively settled. Millions of others are suffering the same circumstances and half of them probably eagerly elected the moron in charge of the country who is clearly unfit to keep it together during a time of crisis. All the apparent gains from the stock market since the 2008-09 crash have been wiped out with the Federal Reserve pumping taxpayer monies to companies to keep them afloat so that investors can sell the overpriced stocks while US taxpayers are left footing the bill for what was bad investor decision-making instead of allowing the so-called capitalist economy to naturally cause them to lose fortunes due to the upheaval in the stock market from the Coronavirus-19 pandemic.
This current crisis is an opportune time for people. Instead of being perpetually depressed and horrified with images of the end of the world floating in people’s minds, I think it is more important to look at what you can accomplish at this moment in time. There are many unspoken and unrealized advantages to this current crisis. Lower stock prices means famous companies who suffered from the colossal losses these past couple of months are sure to bounce back once the pandemic is over; this’ll be after however many more bodies pile-up because of the incompetence of the current Presidential administration in power which argued there was nothing to worry about regarding the Coronavirus-19 until it was too late to stop an outbreak. If gambling on the stock market doesn’t interest people, they could focus on writing any type book that they’ve never had time to do before. I’m working on a Fantasy Novel at the moment, it’ll probably be very short and not very good, but why not spend time doing something productive? Other than that, there’s the backlog of movies, television shows, video games, anime, and books that people increasingly never had time for that we have time to take part in now instead of worrying incessantly about the Coronavirus-19 pandemic which we have no control over.
There’s so much opportunity to do something productive, so don’t waste time worrying on factors you can’t control and miss out the goldmine of free time that’s right in front of you.
