It is truly heartbreaking to see what is happening in the USA with the industrial meat plants. The cruelty alone should have all those types of industries closed permanently. But now Der Führer is using executive orders to try to force industrial meat packing plants where many immigrants and poor people work to reopen too soon. Ending the closure for health reasons means everyone loses their unemployment benefits if they don't show up to work (we're also seeing this tactic in "red states" ). This is the typical exploitation of workers that elitists like The Chump count on. They could care less about the cost in human lives. Capitalism at its worst. The Chump is also pressuring Mexico to reopen maquiladoras in the border region that closed due to the health emergency. He'll probably threaten us in the next few days or so since Mexico has no intention of reopening them yet and all he cares about is his wealth and his image for his reelection to keep him from joining his former lawyer/fixer in jail.

While irresponsible industrial fishing is also killing large populations of fish and leaving marine ecosystems devastated, thankfully our local fishing fleet uses antiquated fishing methods, though a few also use illegal and unethical practices. But the majority are simply hard-working people fishing with rods or hand lines. They barely make a living, but like most of us locals they are simply happy to make their living here even if it is a hard life. We are grateful for their hard work and glad to lend them a hand when they need it as they also do for us. That's what a community is all about.

Food is essential, certain people need to continue to work so others can survive.

Certain people are essential so life can go on as normal as possible. We can't all wait around waiting for handouts, someone has to provide those handouts.

You may want to look at where all the rice and beans you eat are coming from.

Sometimes a simple Thank You goes farther than constant whining.

Regards

If anyone had to miss the gist of the message I wrote, it is no surprise it would be you.

The only person whining here is you at my observations of reality, specifically your unsustainable overconsumptive lifestyle that is decimating the planet and causing unimaginable suffering that you apparently choose to ignore.

D-UHHHH, food is essential. BUT WHAT ALLEGEDLY CAUSES THE PANDEMIAS LIKE THIS ARE THE CONDITIONS HUMANS CAUSE. In the industrial meat plants, whose cruelty is beyond comprehension and totally inexcusable (maybe only liberals care about the effects of cruelty) the conditions those poor animals are forced to live under in order to feed TOO MANY PEOPLE are what give rise to pandemias to begin with. Thus my comments about local old-fashioned fishing techniques. Never mind that the meat we eat locally comes from farms where animals actually see and feel sunlight and can move around.

Oh, the comment about the "handouts" only leaves decent people wondering how people like you justify your elitist hatred of the less fortunate who must rely on the goodwill of their governments or neighbors during this health emergency.

But hey, be consistent and turn down all the social and public services you receive from whatever government you goose-step for.

You haven't a friggin' clue where the "rice and beans" we eat come from, but I gather from your tone you want to insist The Chump grows it personally.

¡Feliz Día del Trabajo!
