Small Businesses In Catch-22 Begin Revolt: ‘Defy State’s Stay-At-Home Order Or Face Collections’


27-04-20 09:43:00,

As some states begin hesitantly reopening aspects of their economies, many small business owners find themselves in a Catch-22, as one Atlanta fitness studio operator who says he lost a family member to a likely coronavirus-related illness describes. 

“I am in a Catch-22,” Ramese Long – who had only opened his gym in January of this year – lamented, saying “I am anxious to get open. However, rolling the dice medically, I don’t think is a good idea.”

States like Georgia, Colorado, Florida, Texas and a handful of others have stay-at-home orders expiring by end of this month, and have signaled that restrictions will begin to be rapidly lifted. Colorado, Minnesota and Montana are among those planning further to drastically ease social distancing guidelines. And Tennessee plans to go so far as to allow restaurants to welcome diners at 50% capacity starting Wednesday, according to Governor Bill Lee.

But as decision-making regarding freedom to open or close is set to be transferred back to the individual businesses, it’s unclear just how fast things will actually get back to normal.

“For small-business owners, it can come down to life-or-death decisions, for their firm, for their employees and for their customers,” Bloomberg writes. “The tasks at hand are concrete: how to rearrange a restaurant to allow for social distancing and where to buy noncontact infrared thermometers. While many owners are struggling to obtain financial aid and simply get by every day, they wrestle with daunting questions: Is my business model viable at half-capacity and will the customers come back?“

Yet other states, considered to have been more hard-hit by the pandemic such as New York, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington, have yet to suggest any level of a timetable as to when businesses might resume. 

Some health officials are advancing models which call for state-wide lockdowns to continue all the way into late June and early July. Researchers behind a University of Washington model that’s now making waves say that no state should open their economies before May 1.

Millions Of Small Businesses Stunned To Learn They Are Not Eligible For Bailout Loans – Activist Post


03-04-20 05:09:00,

By Tyler Durden

It’s the first day that America’s small businesses can apply for the Treasury’s Paycheck Protection Program, i.e., the $350BN program that is part of the bigger $2 trillion bailout package designed to provide small businesses access to capital for payroll and other overhead costs to the tune of 2.5 months of average payroll and which must be accessed via an existing banking relationship – and the rollout is predictably a mess, with some banks such as BofA already accepting loans (which convert to grants if used exclusively for payrolls and business continuity purposes), while others like JPM delaying the roll out to 1pm; a third group of banks such as Wells Fargo has conspicuously failed to provide its rollout plans – perhaps it is scheming how to cross-sell bailout loans with auto insurance or engage in some other typically Wellsfargoian fraud.

Oh naturally they insist on having a checking account first, so they can start charging fees. Ghouls, they are, said Yoda.

— Jeff J. (@j2lovesfriday) April 3, 2020

But a recurring shock as millions of small business owners head to these bank websites to apply for the PPP funds is that contrary to the SBA’s guidance that any small business with 500 or less employees can apply, going to lender portals shows that only a very narrow subset of America’s millions in small businesses are be eligible.

Ridiculous. We’ve been with $BAC for 12 years and have “Platnium Honor” status on our business account and never needed money (from them or from other lenders) and now @BankofAmerica is just telling us ¯_(ツ)_/¯ I guess we will go find another bank for our accounts.

The Irresponsibility of Small Nations –


23-08-19 07:59:00,

The Irresponsibility of Small Nations

Paul Craig Roberts

After falsely accusing Russia of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), Washington unilaterally repudiated the treaty. Thus did the US military/security complex rid itself of the landmark agreement achieved by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev that defused the Cold War.

The INF Treaty was perhaps the most important of all of the arms control agreements achieved by American 20th century presidents and now abandoned in the 21st century by US neoconservative governments. The treaty removed the threat of Russian missiles against Europe and the threat of European-based US missiles to Russia. The importance of the treaty is due to its reduction of the chance of accidental nuclear war. Warning systems have a history of false alarms. The problem of US missiles on Russia’s border is that they leave no time for reflection or contact with Washington when Moscow receives a false alarm. Considering the extreme irresponsibility of US governments since the Clinton regime in elevating tensions with Russia, missiles on Russia’s border leaves Russia’s leadership with little choice but to push the button when an alarm sounds.

That Washington intends to put missiles on Russia’s border and pulled out of the INF Treaty for this sole purpose is now obvious. Only two weeks after Washington pulled out of the treaty, Washington tested a missile whose research and development, not merely deployment, were banned under the treaty. If you think Washington designed and produced a new missile in two weeks you are not intelligent enough to be reading this column. While Washington was accusing Russia, it was Washington who was violating the treaty. Perhaps this additional act of betrayal will teach the Russian leadership that it is stupid and self-destructive to trust Washington about anything. Every country must know by now that agreements with Washington are meaningless.

Surely the Russian government understands that there are only two reasons for Washington to put missiles on Russia’s border: (1) to enable Washington to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike that leaves Russia no response time, or (2) to enable Washington to threaten such a strike, thus coercing Russia to Washington’s will. Clearly, one or the other of these reasons is of sufficient importance to Washington for Washington to risk a false alarm setting off a nuclear war.

Reminder: You Don’t Want 5G OR 4G Small Cells Installed Near Where People and Animals Spend Long Periods of Time.


29-07-19 07:35:00,

By B.N. Frank

There is increasing opposition to 5G small cell technology installation for many good reasons.

  1. The Telecom Industry has admitted they have no scientific evidence that exposure to 5G is biologically or environmentally safe.
  2. Plenty of researchers say it isn’t safe (see 1, 2, 3).
  3. Meteorologists, NASA, NOAA, the U.S. Navy, security experts, and utility companies have also issued warnings about installing 5G for reasons other than health risks.

This doesn’t mean that installing 4G small cells everywhere and boosting 4G levels is safer.  OMG NO!  There is research that proves 4G is biologically and environmentally harmful as well.  The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other health experts have warned that kids are more vulnerable than adults to ALL sources of cell phone and wireless radiation.  In fact, there is still no scientifically determined “safe” level of exposure for children or pregnant women.  Animals are affected by exposure too.  It seems that everything living is.

Thanks to Nicholas Gonzalez Foundation for posting an article written by Camilla Rees, MBA which provides more details about why we should be paying attention to all wireless antenna installation – not just 5G:

Is 5G the Problem? Or Is ‘Antenna Densification’?

Next generation telecommunications technology, called 5G, is in the news constantly these days. But there is plenty of confusion about what it involves, and whether it has even arrived.

Several of the ‘promises’ of this technology have been called into serious question, and much of what we hear about 5G wonders is considered hype. There is even an online promotion circulating suggesting 5G will ‘cure cancer’, when the radiation emitted by the coming 5G (and 4G) antennas densely placed throughout neighborhoods in very large numbers instead will greatly increase cancer and other serious diseases.

1,824 5G Small Cells Installed Already in Philadelphia. Telecom Industry Still Has No Proof That 5G is Safe. Many Researchers Say It’s Not.


30-05-19 10:12:00,

By B.N. Frank

In February telecom representatives gave congressional testimony that they had no scientific evidence that 5G is safe.

Regardless, The City of Brotherly Love – where U.S. Founding Fathers originally met, discussed, debated and formed this country – now has 1,824 small cell towers installed and more may be on the way.

So much for Philadelphia freedom…

From The Inquirer:

On a walk around Society Hill, attorney Paul Boni looked up at 38th Parallel Place and Spruce Streets and was surprised to see a big brown box with wires hanging on a city light pole. He looked around the neighborhood. There was more of them, seemingly every block.

“My initial reaction,” Boni said, “was what government spy technology is this?”

Boni put the question of the boxes’ provenance to Curious Philly — the forum through which we answer queries from readers about the city and region — and here’s what we found.

They’re new small cell antennas for mobile coverage, a Philadelphia official said after reviewing photos that Boni emailed to the Inquirer.

And Philadelphia residents will start seeing more — many more — of them.

So far wireless providers have installed 1,824 small cells in Philadelphia in public rights-of-way. But that’s only the leading edge of an invasion.

Over the next decade, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint will each hang several thousand small cells on light and utility poles around the city, part of an infrastructure project that will entail an estimated 800,000 small cells nationwide.

Research has already proven that 5G and other sources of cell phone and wireless radiation is biologically and environmentally harmful.

The first 5G court case was won last year in England after residents became sick and women delivered stillborn babies.

U.S. elected officials have been intervening on behalf of concerned citizens about 5G installation.  Some elected officials seem concerned as well.

Apparently not so much in Philly…

Oh Philadelphia freedom shine on me,

Why should you care?  These “small cell” towersmay be installed in front of homes every couple hundred feetin residential neighborhoodsand everywhere else.

There has been a lot of controversyreported about 5G already:

The industry vision for 5G is to enable the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Communities, driverless cars (and more), where roads and appliances (even baby diapers!) are embedded with wireless radiation transmitters that connect to cell phones, (utility) smart meters and the internet.

5G and IoT may sound super coolif you aren’t concerned about health risks, small cell towers reducing your property value, or being hacked.  IoT already has an almost 75% failurerate.  Security experts’ warningswaver between hilarious and scary as hell.

Some stateshave already passed laws forcing these towers onto communities
