DV #61: Will Taxes Skyrocket?

We’ve got bad news coming from California!  Governor Gavin Newsom has decided to lock down the state AGAIN with no date in sight to reopen.  Hair salons, gyms, churches, and barber shops in most counties will cease indoor operations.  We’re in for another long “quarantine” even though deaths continue to decline in the state.  Will this madness end or will more states follow suit? 

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has decided that students will not return to school in the fall.  This is a huge disappointment that defies the science behind COVID-19.  We discuss who is pushing these school closures so strongly and some of the wild demands that teachers’ unions are making that would be contingent upon their return to school. 

The coronavirus has also created a massive budget shortfall in most state and city governments — and politicians are already implementing massive tax increases.  Only the government can increase the cost of services without improving them . . . 

Finally, we hear a thoughtful reflection from a writer friend of ours.  We hope you enjoy today’s episode.   Please consider making a tax-deductible gift here: https://unreportedstorysociety.com/donate/
