So many small businesses were unable to access any aide at all while it seems the feds wrote blank checks for tons of multi billion dollar companies and businesses lead by ownership that definately had the means to sustain them during the downswing. The whole entire situation has been a farce and I agree with you completely. My business? We didn’t get a dollar. Thankfully we are in the habit of laying off avocado toast and had our own modest funds available to pay out necessary expenses while we were shut down. I can’t imagine the hardship this would have caused Kanye had he not been able to purchase 100, 000$ worth of shoes a month..Yes, it seems like the reality is everyone who currently plays by the rules is getting screwed. And everyone dirty gets a big pat on the back from the government. Like Congratulations, you figured out the American way.
As this whole thing plays out, the cognitive dissonance displayed is astounding. We literally have a government and economic system that takes the public side of the playing field and completely destroys it. Then when the public fights back (by destroying the other side of the playing field) it's not revolt against a clearly corrupt government, it's TREASON.
The government and cronies have destroyed more businesses and lives that any riot ever could. Period. If people want to play both sides, I'm fine with that, but at least have the government give you a good reason to switch sides.
