The most important thing to do if your payday lender sues you!

People get sued everyday. Civil lawsuits that usually have to do with debt. Banks suing credit card customers. Automobile lenders filing suit after repossessing a car to recover their damages. Landlord tenant disputes. I could go on all day. What do you do when you get sued by a Payday lender? Well I know what a lot of people do. The reason I know is because we hear these stories every day from our clients. Most people ignore these lawsuits. They don’t show up in court. Their lender ends up winning a default judgement and the plaintiff  also ends up receiving everything they asked for in their suit.

They can even ask for things that aren’t completely honest and true because not showing up allows the creditor to tell the judge whatever story they choose to tell. Don’t believe for one moment that lawyers don’t lie. In most cases the judge will grant all that’s asked for because there’s nobody representing you and disputing the information from the creditor. In addition, many Judges feel that by not showing up you are disrespecting the court. They stamp these things and then creditors can start looking for, and in some cases garnishing your money and taking your things dependent upon where you live and what the laws are. So here’s the thing. It’s okay to lose a lawsuit. It’s not a death sentence. BUT, sometimes the plaintiff doesn’t have A GOOD CLAIM  to begin with, but you didn’t show up to defend yourself and you lose by default. Here’s what I mean. Payday loan lenders assume that you won’t show up.

Sometimes, they include language in their contracts that’s in direct contravention to the laws of your state. They include language that would make the contract null and void if only you were there to defend. So many people lose in court because they don’t take the time and spend a few dollars to defend themselves. Many times defense doesn’t pay off, but when it does pay it pays off big time. The whole moral of this story? You get sued get a lawyer. I know lawyers are expensive. Many lawyers will provide you with free consultations and if not perhaps it’ll cost you $200 for an hour to have a lawyer read a contract. That’s all you need. For starters anyway. You might be surprised to find that there is language in your contract that turns that contract into a nullity. Another words you win. If you do lose you do have an out.

The truth about payday loan consolidation and collection agencies going back to work!

Watching the news on television is like watching a partisan rally. There is no truth. Only BS. And speaking of the word partisan, this country has never been more divided by politics then it is today. That doesn’t help any of us and no matter what either party does it’s not going to help you relieve your payday loan debt. The Democrats are going to pass a new bill today and send it to the Senate where it will be destroyed. Senator Mitch McConnell in all his redneck glory has already come out and said as much by saying “it’s already as dead as fried chicken” The Republican-controlled Senate obviously will not pass this proposal. There is an interesting piece of proposed legislation in this particular bill. Debt collectors will receive a bailout in this proposal made by the Democrats. I find that incredibly interesting given the liberal attitude that prevails today. So why bail out debt collector’s? 

Debt collection is a huge industry and there are a lot of federal moratoriums right now on collecting debt. That, combined with the shutdown that’s just starting to lift has put people who work in that industry as well as the companies they work for in jeopardy. So, the companies that barrage you with dunning letters and phone calls are going to be helped by the government. At first glance it annoys me. I’ve been dealing with these creditors and working with our clients for quarter of a century. My heart lies with the client not with the collector but there’s way more to it. There are certain facts that I am positive about. It comes from being in the business that I’m in. Payday Loan borrowers contact a payday loan consolidation company to consolidate their payday loans. The payday loan consolidation company contacts the creditor and the customer is in a payday loan consolidation program. Then the payday loan consolidation company forwards the clients payments to the lender at a greatly reduced interest rate which negates the up to 700% that any particular client could be paying to the lender.

So here is point number one. Payday loan consolidation companies effectively negate the need for collection agencies. Payday loans are a huge business and many payday loan companies depend on these companies to collect their money for them. Once a person finds a payday loan consolidation company that they’re comfortable with and gets into a payday loan consolidation program there is no need for the collection agency in their case. I get that. In addition, many states have passed laws that severely limit or prohibit collection agencies from collecting just about anything in these days of Coronavirus. And my point is? Well, point number one is that payday loan consolidation works and a good payday loan consolidation company can get you out of debt. And then you might ask? Given the moratorium on overdue bills why do I need payday loan consolidation? Good question and here’s my second point and the rest of the collection story. A large portion of payday lenders operate their businesses online. That in itself is meaningless. In some cases it even hurts the payday loan lender because many times their paperwork doesn’t cover payback laws in certain States in which they work. The important point is that these online payday lenders are very likely to be businesses owned and operated by native American tribes.

If there is a moratorium on collection it doesn’t extend to native American reservations which for all purposes are sovereign countries unto themselves. That’s why you, the Payday Loan customer is probably still getting barraged by collection agencies operated simultaneously with loan companies owned  by native Americans. Where does that put you, the payday loan borrower? It puts you right back to square one. You’re in a position where you need something to help you out of debt. A good payday loan consolidation company can do that. Companies that consolidate payday loans are a saving Grace to people that are mired in Payday loan debt. In most cases a good Payday Loan Company can take your outstanding debt and offer you a reduced interest rate that is usually 0%. This allows you to pay off your payday loans in a greatly reduced period of time at a greatly reduced amount of money. There is no substitute for a good payday loan consolidation company in times like these. Native American sovereign ground it’s just that. It’s sovereign. Depending on where it’s located some local laws might be adopted and or apply to these nations but not all of them. That’s what gives your local casino the ability to operate in a state where gambling is illegal. I think that last sentence paints the perfect picture of the situation.

So what do you do? We understand why you took that Payday Loan in the first place. There are so many people in this country hurting financially. Sometimes cash is Cash no matter where it comes from. We can help you stop the madness of constant payday loan rollovers and off-the-chart interest rates. Federated Financial is a twenty-three-year-old company with an A+ rating from the BBB. We are good at what we do! We can consolidate your payday loan debt and get you back on your financial feet more quickly then you could do it yourself. Now that people are going back to work the last thing they should be doing is spending their money on anything but necessities.

Here are some random thoughts… Sports, Collection Agencies and Movies…

Quarantining at home, and complete utter boredom gives me time to think. I have thoughts running in and out of my head all day. I’m going to share them. President Trump basically took off the gloves last night, and tossed Dr. Fauchi under the bus. He had the balls to say that Fauchi was playing both sides. First of all that remark is ignorant. Everything Anthony Fachi said would happen actually happened. Good and bad. They’ve obviously split and have gone their separate ways. Here’s the problem with that. If there was an election today, and the two candidates were Fauchi and Trump Anthony Fauchi would win. He’s probably the most respected person in America. The problem was that President Trump couldn’t fire him. It goes unsaid that the Doctor walked away on his own. The prevailing thought in his head had to have been “I’m too old for this shit” Who can blame him. Dr. Deborah Birx has been MIA for a while now. My thought is she stuck around after Fauchi left for only one reason. She put the health of our country in front of her reputation. She stood there metaphorically naked, and tried to lend credibility to what the President was saying. I was listening to a liberal radio show the other day and the host called Deborah Birx, “Trump’s whore”. I think she’s had enough too. He’s free now and that’s scary. She only stayed to keep him straight. The price became too high. Like Tony Fauchi, she is a world-wide Force in the epidemiology field and is highly respected. So here’s the deal. If by some incredible lucky chance Donald Trump’s ridiculous plan to go back to work is successful he has saved his presidency for another 4 years. If not, and we have to close again it’s going to be Financial Armageddon. I don’t know if Trump knows that but it’s absolutely obvious that there are only two guaranteed outcomes.

My second thought of the day. There will be no baseball this year. Many people don’t care. I’m one of the ones who do and I know that these players will not play. They’re not getting paid for the games that have been missed and the owners want to cut their salaries even more to make up for the empty seats and the lack of concession and souvenir revenue. My take on this: The average player salary is between 4 and 5 million dollars a year.. the minimum Major League in salary is $563,000 per year. The union has an emergency fund for players who make minimum wage. The big stars can certainly afford to sit out the year. The last thing the union will let happen, especially at a reduced rate is to let one of their members gets sick. The owners have proposed a solution. They’ve suggested splitting the net revenues for this year. That’s a joke. If baseball opens up it’s going to operate at a loss. I’m guessing there won’t be any baseball season. While I’m on the subject, let’s write football off too. The last thing any major sports commissioner wants is what is what’s happened to hockey and basketball. Two seasons cut off before the playoffs and that might or might not be finished. That’s worse for the game than not playing at all. They can’t play football even with an empty Stadium. These guys line up nose to nose. That’s pretty much end of story. All of these athletes are young men and not one of them wants to die. It only takes one. Remember where you read it first. I have lots of random thoughts.

This next thought affects you. The Democrats have proposed a bill that Republican Senator Mitch McConnell has already said is dead before it gets to the Senate. This bill is a 180-degree turn from what the President, and Republican Senators are thinking and McConnell is right. It won’t pass. Included in this bill is a provision for collection agencies to be bailed out. Why are the Democrats playing both sides now? They whine and  moan, touting their affinity for the working class yet they’re helping debt collectors. The hell with debt collectors. That industry needs to be cleaned up too. A reset wouldn’t hurt right now. This affects you directly. Many of you are in Payday loan debt. That’s why you’re here. You want to consolidate payday loan debt. Payday loan debt is an insidious trap. Constantly rolling up one payday loan into another it’s a horrible thing to have to do. In addition, your interest rate can run up to 700% annually. You  need to consolidate your payday loan debt. At Federated Financial we can help you. We are 23 years old and A plus rated with the BBB. In most cases, our payday loan consolidation program can get you out of debt and lower your interest rate down to 0%. That’s huge. It brings down the total principal and consequently helps you pay off your payday loans more quickly. You need to consolidate your payday loan debt and you need to do it now. Fill out our form or simply give us a call. We are there and we can help you

And finally: On more than one occasion I have written about movie studios bypassing theaters and sending their films straight to the streaming services. I have written that this will break the old business model and destroy the movie theater business. I’ve told this to my friends and they have laughed. As they laugh, Disney came out yesterday and announced they were releasing a Monster on their own streaming network. On July 3rd 2020 they will release a film that was destined to be a huge hit next year. They are releasing this movie a full year earlier then was planned. Yes, I know they’re releasing it on their own streaming service and I believe it’s more of a test then anything else. If it succeeds, and it will, other studios will start releasing blockbusters on streamers like Amazon and Netflix too. Oh, I forgot to mention the title of the film. It’s the film version of the  Broadway show Hamilton! That would have been a quarter billion dollar film in wide release. There will be a lot of movie theater executives watching the numbers on that one. That’s all I have for today!

Questions and answers to help you through your payday loan consolidation!

Why did you choose us when searching for companies to consolidate my payday loans? The answer is pretty simple. You looked over this site and just by reading it you could tell that we knew what we were talking about and we had the credibility of being a 23 year old company with an A+ rating with the BBB. Most companies that consolidate payday loans can’t brag about that because they don’t have either one. That would be longevity or credibility. We receive questions every day and the one we have been receiving a lot lately is this one: People on our program as well as people who are considering it have asked us what do I do? The payday lender is taking payments out of my account without a judgement against me… The answer to this situation is pretty clear. First off the country of reopening and creditors are back in the office. When you initially took out the loan, you signed a lot of paperwork. In addition you gave your lender all your banking information as well as a check. In the paperwork you signed you gave your bank permission to take payments from your checking account. So yes they’re taking money from your account without a judgment and they can. What’s the solution? I’m going to preface my answer by telling you that I am not an attorney and I am not giving you any legal advice at all, but just an answer that’s based on extensive experience with this situation. Go into your bank and close that checking account today. Yep, that’s the only way to stop them. The other way would be not to have enough money in there for them to draft but that would cost you fees as well as the ability to open up another checking account if this one has outstanding fees. If you’re on our program this is the advice l I would give you. BUT, if you are on our program this wouldn’t be happening. When searching for a payday loan consolidation companies you need to look for a company that knows what they’re doing. This is probably the first thing our certified counselor would have told you to do. Once you make your first dispersible payment through us the creditors will stop all of their efforts to collect their money and take payments through our company at what is usually a 0 interest rate. This is opposed to the up to 700% annual rate you’re paying now. If you are not on our program this might be a good time to hop on our payday loan consolidation program and get out of debt. I can say to you that my suggestion wouldn’t change regardless of whether you come with us or not. You need to close your checking account now! In no way should this be construed as legal advice. We want to be the company that does this work for you and earns your trust. We are one of the oldest payday loan consolidation companies in this country and our track record is stellar. We do what we say and we treat our clients like family. We care.

Your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness depends on this!

On Monday May 11th, President Trump held a briefing in the rose garden. This briefing affects all of us. It especially affects people that need to go back to work, and especially people who need to consolidate payday loans! I’ll tell you why. The President spoke of his agenda and told the country how things are going to be great again. He spoke of how this virus is going to wane away. There is no Doctor Fauchi, or Doctor Birx in sight to reign the president in. Nobody to turn off his fantasy BS machine. I’ve mentioned before that I lean to the right but I’m having a real problem leaning these days. After the president finished his prepared remarks he took questions from the press. It was pretty obvious that the questions didn’t meet with his approval.

That’s a hell of a way to run a briefing and a press conference. He was confronted about testing protocol in the White House and how everybody’s being tested now over there. He was asked about testing for everybody and he came back and said that was going to happen very soon. Doesn’t he remember saying just two months ago, “everybody that wants a test can have one?” A young female reporter then asked him “why he continued to insist that the United States was doing better than other countries when it came to testing for the virus?” She went on to ask, “why does this matter? Why is this a global competition, when everyday Americans are still losing their lives?”. The President replied  “maybe that’s a question you should ask China. Don’t ask me, ask China that Question, okay?” This CBS reporter who identifies as a Chinese-born West Virginian, came back at him and asked, “Sir, why are you saying that to me specifically?” She was obviously implying it was due to her race. Trump replied, “I’m saying it to anybody who would ask a nasty question like that”. The reporter replied “it’s not a nasty question. Why does that matter? Trump went on to say, next question. He immediately picked Kaitlan Collins, White House reporter and a super liberal from CNN. When Collins she said she wanted to give her colleague time to finish her question the president replied “nah, that’s okay”, and waved off the CNN reporter as she approached the mic. When she continued to try and ask that her colleague to be allowed to finish, our President said that that’s okay, told everybody to have a nice evening and left the podium. Not very Presidential.

When you open up a briefing to media questions you can’t pick and choose who asks them and what they ask. Just common sense. These questions are very important to all of us. Why is the White House staff getting tested full-time but we can’t? We, the people who are just “nobodys”? Two months back the President distinctly said that everybody who wants a test will get one. Last evening he said everybody will be getting tests “soon”. Lies are getting old. Even his voter base is beginning to see that as his approval rating plummets. This is a desperate man fighting for re-election. I get that part. He just can’t fight at my expense or yours. People need to go back to work. People have families to feed. People need to go back to work feed their families and know that it’s safe. They don’t know that today. People need to start earning money. The government cannot continue to send out money and survive.  People can’t keep taking loans, payday loans and survive. If it wasn’t for companies like ours providing payday loan consolidation to everybody who needs it, there could be many people hungry on the street. It  seems as though the president becomes more unhinged each day as things continue to unravel before his eyes. So what does the worker do? Risk their life everyday by simply going to work, or just stay home and continue to borrow. And borrow the wrong way. Payday loans are the desperate way to borrow.

Payday loan consolidation is saving Financial Futures right now. People who get deep into debt are paying 300% to 700% interest annually on these usurious loans. Our payday loan consolidation program can reduce your interest rate in most cases down to 0% and get you out of debt sooner for whole lot less money. I know people want to work. I also know that it’s unfair to ask people to work when they’re not working around people that have tested negative. That creates the cyclical nature of the problem. People are afraid to go back to work so they borrow. They borrow to eat. And then they need to use somebody’s payday loan consolidation program to get out of debt. You’re on this site. That means you need our help. We are 23 years old with an A+ BBB rating. What else would you look for in a company? Give us a call or fill out our 30 second short form. See what a real professional payday loan consolidation company can do for you! We Care.

California payday loan chain applies for a 600000 Payday Protection Program loan! Seriously!!

Just when you thought you heard it all! That is a mind-bogglingly Ballsy move. The unmitigated gall. A company called Payday Money Centers in California has filed a lawsuit in Federal court asking for their piece of the pie. The CEO of Payday Money Centers Dan Gwaltney,  has said and I quote,”I am struggling to understand the difference between my employees who walk into our storefronts and the employees at the dry cleaners next door” Now this is coming from a man whose company charges upwards of 400% interest. Consumer advocates are outraged that payday lenders want better treatment than they offer consumers who end up being trapped in the payday loan cycle for years. These are the very companies that get our clients into debt and force them into payday loan  consolidation programs. Of course Charles Schumer House minority leader is outraged by this suit and says that the Coronavirus is creating opportunity for these greedy loan sharks.

So, here’s the thing. I get the outrage. I also feel the pain that the people caught in the payday loan cycle feel. Borrow, roll it into another, and again and again. They end up hopefully calling a company like ours with 23 years experience and end up in a payday loan consolidation program. Working with us usually lowers their interest rates down to 0%. So there’s a parachute there, or as they say at a poker table, payday loan customers have some outs. Obviously in my mind, a payday loan consolidation program is the answer. I have a flip side view of this as well which provides an interesting counterpoint. Now, I’ve seen lots of pain and suffering caused by payday lenders like these over the years. I think they need to cap their interest rates and if they don’t the government needs to do it for them. Notwithstanding all that, why doesn’t this company have the right to apply for this loan and actually receive it?I do believe the coronavirus has hurt their business. They didn’t write the Cares act. The Cares act certainly doesn’t target these type companies as ineligible for a loan. These payday lenders also have employees who are Americans just like you and me and has the right to participate in Federal programs. What gives the powers-that-be the right to interpret the Cares Act Paycheck Protection Plan as one which excludes payday loan companies? Just an interesting thought and a very interesting topic that in certain circles will receive a lot of attention. Bottom line, if you’ve been victimized by companies like these and need help quickly, Federated Financial’s payday loan consolidation program is your answer. We want to help you and we care. feel free to dial our 800 number on the top of the page or fill out our 30 second short form. You will be glad you did.

What the Hell is going on here? Where is President Trump’s mask?

Before I get started I’d like to mention one thing. People who come to this site come for one reason. Payday debt consolidation is important and its real. This pandemic has destroyed many people’s financial dreams and put them in a desperate situation. Predatory payday lenders are right there taking take full advantage. As the country reopens it will just get worse. If you have a payday loan the interest rates likely run you between 200% and 700% annually. You need payday debt consolidation. We are one of the two or three oldest providers in the country. We are in our 23rd year of serving America and we are rated A+ by the BBB. In most cases we can have your creditors reduce your interest rates down to 0%. This will get you out of debt quicker and for a whole lot less money. We are the go-to company for payday debt consolidation. We Care!

Where is the President’s mask? Yesterday, the President, along with a group of veterans honored those we lost in WW II. Yesterday was VE day. VE stands for Victory in Europe and it commemorates the day that the Allies accepted Germany’s surrender. May 8th 1945. It marks the beginning of the end of WWII. Of course as we all know the war ended in August of that year when President Harry Truman dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki just three days apart. On Aug 6th,  Hiroshima and on August 9th  Nagasaki. On August 15th 1945 Japan’s surrender was announced by emperor Hirohito and formally signed on September 2nd 1945. The war was over. The men who fought in that war war were the greatest generation. The bravest men that ever lived. I know a lot about it. My dad was a member of the United States Army Air Corps. There was no Air Force then. The Air Force was a branch of the Army. He belonged to a very elite group. They were the 43rd bomb group. They served in the Pacific theater. He was in the 65th squadron. The 43rd was a group called Ken’s Men. Long story behind that. Perhaps I’ll write about it one day or perhaps you can Google it. He flew nine bombing missions over Japan. He was a SGT….a non com, and was the radio operator on the B-24 he was serving on. Why am I writing all this? These men who still survive, number in the three hundred thousands now. They are truly an American treasure. In 10 years they’ll all be gone. There are still so many stories to hear and so much history to learn from these amazing brave men. They served our country without pause for thought when America was attacked on December 7th 1941.

Yesterday the President presided over a very small ceremony with just a few of these wonderful men in attendance. The day before yesterday on the 7th, President Trump’s valet was diagnosed with covid-19. The President presided over this ceremony without a mask. He walked side by side with the first Lady to pay his respects at the wall which lists the fallen. He then walked over to where the soldiers were sitting and from about eight to ten feet away saluted them. They saluted him back. Where was his mask? Where! Was! His! Mask? These are American heroes. They’re all in their mid 90s… minimum. Covid is a death sentence for any one of them. Why won’t he wear a mask? This is not the first time. If he doesn’t respect the soldiers, doesn’t he respect his wife? There always seems to be an excuse. At the very least, SET AN EXAMPLE FOR THE PEOPLE MR. PRESIDENT!

Could consolidating your credit card debt be your answer?

As always it depends on your circumstances. Credit card debt consolidation is the process of taking all of your credit card debt, contacting all of the banks that issue the cards and creating a repayment program which will ensure they get paid, your interest rate is greatly reduced and you get out of debt in the shortest amount of time possible.All of your credit card payments will be put into one monthly payment. It makes it easy. We draft your payment every month and immediately disperse your funds to your credit card lenders. Consolidating your credit card debt does not hurt your credit. Initially, you cancel all of your credit cards except one. Put that away for a rainy day just in case you need it. Once you cancel those cards your credit score will temporarily drop. As you pay down your credit card debt in most cases your credit score will slowly rise and it will be marked on your credit report that you are paying your debt through a third party. Consolidating your credit card debt through a third party is not a terrible thing. The most important thing is that you’re paying the bill. It’s a short-term loss for a long-term gain and a big gain it is. credit card debt consolidation programs customarily take between three to five years to resolve. They resolve at a lower payment and a lower interest rate.Credit card consolidation stops the dunning phone calls from your creditors and allows you to pay off your credit card debt in an affordable manner. Federated Financial has been doing this for 23 years. We know our business. Give us a call, or fill out the form on our front page. It won’t take more than a minute.

And now on to the show!

https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Trek:_The_Original_Series

Star Trek, the original series premiered in 1967 and ran for three years through 1969. It’s very interesting to go back and watch these shows today because almost every one of them had a tomorrow. It’s almost eerie.The fertile imagination of Creator Gene Roddenberry is legendary. Go back and watch an episode. You can watch all 79 of them, three seasons on Netflix right now. You’ll notice that many pieces of equipment, gadgets, and everyday items that we use today were originally invented by Gene Roddenberry and used on the Star Trek show. Let’s start with the sliding doors. Back in 1967 who would have ever thought that you could walk into a door and just have it open for you automatically? Well we sure didn’t and as we watched it we realized we were watching science fiction. Computers that talk. That’s right computers that are actually conversational! Now all computers talk. We talk to Google and Siri. Tablets. Yes, the iPad. Yeoman getting orders signed on an iPad. Pretty wild huh? These are just a few that immediately come to mind. There are so many more. Of course we’re not transporting anywhere anytime soon so after all that it was still science fiction. The first two seasons were the best. NBC, knowing that season 3 was going to be the last, cut the budget allotted for each show, consequently cutting the quality of the episodes and the show wasn’t the same in that final season. Thank goodness Gene Roddenberry along with Bob Justman produced Seasons one and two. Their imaginations were amazing and many of their stories mirrored real life events, or past history in our country. The episode I want to talk about in this article has a lot to do with what’s going on today. It was an episode entitled The Conscience of the King”

This episode took its title from the concluding lines of act 2 of Hamlet. I’m going to review it and compare it to these Coronavirus days. I believe that Gene Roddenberry and his crew sometimes had the gift of Nostradamus.

A traveling theater troupe hitches a ride aboard the Enterprise to their next show. This is a group of highly respected actors. To thank the crew and the Captain, Anton Karidian and Company perform Hamlet for the Enterprise crew. During this performance the Captain and crew member, Lieutenant Riley recognize the voice of Karidian. It’s a dark voice from a dark past. There are only nine people living who have heard that voice before. The two Enterprise officers recognize it as the voice of Kodos the Executioner. As Governor of Tarsus IV, Kodos seized power when the food supply of the colony was almost completely destroyed. The whole colony faced starvation. Kodos had a decision to make. It was a life-and-death decision. Does everybody die? Or do half the people die so the other half can survive until the supply ships arrive? His decision was the former. He killed 8000 people. He also thought he saved 8000 people, but the supply ships arrived earlier than expected and nobody had to die. Kodos disappeared right around the time Anton Karidian became famous. No coincidence here. Kodos the Executioner was still alive. The whole episode is great. You ought to watch it one day. The real moral of the story is, who gets to decide who lives and dies, if anybody. And what is their responsibility…. and is it a crime to do what Kodos did? It’s a conundrum to say the least and it still is. Of course I’m oversimplifying the screenplay to make a point, and by adding a couple of really good sub-plots within that story, it makes this a stand out episode. I’ve given you the general idea of what Gene Roddenberry had in mind when he green litthat script. A morality play at the time, today it almost mirrors real life. Life in the time of coronavirus. Think about it for a moment. We are opening our country to stimulate the economy before we should. Why? Why would we risk more lives? Well, if we don’t, nobody knows how many will die without the necessities of life they don’t have the money to buy? How many will die of suicide directly relating to depression? How many will die in domestic disputes or because of a straight-up murder? Many questions to ponder. This is really a decision that no one man should have to make. Not the fictional Kodos or the very real Donald Trump. I would hate to be sitting in the chair that makes that decision right now. It’s not a winning decision. Either way the decision goes there’s going to be suffering. This is not as simple as many people are saying. This is not about short-term gain with long-term pain. The long-term pain is going to continue for quite a while. The coronavirus won’t die but many people will. Either road that’s taken will cost American lives. Think about it, what would you do? Truth be told, I don’t know what I would do if I were leading this country right now. The direction that this country takes for the next 10 years is going to be determined over the next 6 months.

Interesting comparison though. In Star Trek land Kodos was guilty. In the United States of America in 2020, the President is pretty screwed either way. To use one more Shakespearean line with a bit of alteration, “to open or stay closed? That is the question”

The country goes back to work at the cost of human life!

Incendiary headline? Perhaps. Truth? No doubt. So here’s the thing. It’s basically a lose-lose situation. Models predict that the death rate per day in the United States will spike up to 3,000 people by June. If we don’t go back to work some people will be financially destroyed. Already payday lenders are flourishing and payday loan consolidation companies are fighting to keep up with them. New clients are flocking in. If we don’t go back to work, mental health will continue to suffer. What I mean by that is that during this lockdown people have been getting depressed. Especially seniors who live alone. The suicide rates have been going up. Domestic violence calls have been rising greatly. People are literally going stir-crazy. This is a complete no-win situation. I would hate to be a President right now. Every call is the wrong call except for one thing. Our president had the choice to roll this out slowly or straight out open it up like a bull in a China closet. That would be the opening he’s chosen which in many states is in direct contravention to CDC guidelines and his own guidelines too. He released those guidelines just a week or so ago and the one that sticks out in my mind is a state must have a 14-day contiguous decline in virus before re opening. In his reopening plan that decline has not been complied with. He just can’t comply with his own rules. He has zero patience. At this point in time this should not be about politics. As President George W Bush so eloquently put it the other day, and I’m paraphrasing a bit, this virus doesn’t play favorites between the one party or another. We need to put politics aside here and just do the right thing. Governor Andrew Cuomo during his press conference just this morning asked The $64,000 question. How much is a human life worth? Very complex question given the circumstances. His answer was “human life is priceless”. He would add, that his reopening plan has a circuit breaker. As soon as the levels of the virus go up the State closes again because human lives matter. So where am I going with this? As I said in the beginning I wouldn’t want to be the President.What happens in the next month will define his legacy. It will cement his place in history till the end of time. What price has he put on human life.That question might not be difficult to answer. The answer goes something like this.. the models were predicting around a hundred thousand deaths by August as recently as 10 days ago. Some models are now predicting more than twice that. 3000 deaths a day. If that were to happen it would be like having 9/11 every single day. Not everybody is like Governor Cuomo. There’s a big election coming up in November, exactly six months away. I believe the answer lies somewhere in between the quandry questions and is based solely on politics. The president believes, based on his actions, that 100,000 extra deaths are acceptable to keep the country economically afloat. Personally I don’t agree but it’s not my decision to make, and Donald Trump has an election to win. What to do? It seems to me this is a decision that can’t be made by a man but has to be dictated by the universe. I agree with Governor Cuomo. Every single human life is priceless. If you don’t believe that talk to the next of kin of the last person who died of Corona.
