You see it on TV advertisements and you hear it over the grocery store public address system. “Attention shoppers, please wear your face diaper and treat your fellow shoppers as if they are carrying the Bubonic Plague and could kill you on the spot by merely glancing in your direction.” The announcement continues: “Because after all, we are all in this together.” All in this together. Please!

Some time back, I wrote a piece decrying this absurd notion of equal burden-sharing.

We are certainly not all in this together. Government edicts have actually divided us into a nation of Haves and Have Nots.

On one side, we have the folks in “essential” positions, which insulate them somewhat from some of the financial burden. Long haul truckers, grocery store workers, are mostly doing okay. Along with them are people in jobs that allow telecommuting. They are also doing okay…for now.

That’s fine. These great Americans are working and they should get paid…and well. Read the rest at redstate.com.

    This is like a company that I worked for where the new CEO paid himself five times more than the previous CEO and then froze the workers’ pay. Of course, he had posters plastered around the company telling us this was a “team effort” and that we were all in this together. Just more top down BS…and the beat goes on.
