    Federal Reserve chairman Powell is scheduled to testify before the Senate later today. Here is an excerpt from his prepared testimony:

    Available economic data for the current quarter show a sharp drop in output and an equally sharp rise in unemployment. By these measures and many others, the scope and speed of this downturn are without modern precedent and are significantly worse than any recession since World War II. Since the pandemic arrived in force just two months ago, more than 20 million people have lost their jobs, reversing nearly 10 years of job gains. This precipitous drop in economic activity has caused a level of pain that is hard to capture in words, as lives are upended amid great uncertainty about the future. In addition to the economic disruptions, the virus has created tremendous strains in some essential financial markets and impaired the flow of credit in the economy.

    Actually, "the scope and speed of this downturn" is the worst in American history. Even in the Great Depression unemployment took two years to reach 15.9 percent. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago we have hit an unemployment rate of 30.7 percent in two months.

    Now, who has the platform from which to reach every one of those “pained” Americans with the message, “this has been done TO YOU ON PURPOSE, by your “elected officials”, for extraordinarily nefarious purposes” ?

    Trust me there are too many subservients in America today who want nothing but the government to take care of them.They don’t care about at what cost..If pot cigarettes and alcohol weren’t necessary to keep idiots in line do you think they would be essential.

    The collapse of Boeing is due primarily to the hundreds of deaths caused by their aircraft, but it's woes have been compounded by the airlines having almost no passengers. If you don't have paying passengers, you don't need to buy new planes.

    Pray for all who have lost their jobs.

    I was watching some of Stefan Molyneux's latest videos on the riots. He has a very courageous take on it, backed by facts and logic. Someone asked him if America was a failed state. he replied that has been for a while and gives reasons why. Although he has been on YouTube for 15 years, he has been shadow banned.
