Small Business Owners: Opportunity for Up to $25,000 Under California Relief Grant

    This is such a bunch of bull feces, big business is still making big money, some are recording record profits while small business is being fed just enough to give the impression that government cares, they don’t.
    If government really believed in this pandemic they wouldn’t consider breaking their own rules like they have, our schools and small businesses would be open for business, these so called “relief packages would be spent 100% on “we the people” not special interest groups, and our southern border would be regulated as it should be if COVID was a concern.
    Big business is profiting off of and swallowing up small business and the government is helping them.
    Big business controls the politicians and the politicians are doing everything they can to control “we the people” and half the country fails to see it, half the country still believes government.
    SMH.

      Why is it that everyone that post on the commits has to pass the Tinner test? This kind of constant negative posting is why so many news sites no longer have comments posted, the constant attack on any and every issue from you is boring. Please find something nice to say.

      My concern is we all will lose this important forum or at least quit altogether.

        Sandy Justice, its people like yourself who can’t handle or don’t like hearing other peoples opinions that conflict with theirs that are the problem. Your say something nice and what I want to hear attitude is anti-American and ends up causing larger issues that could be avoided. The fact is, people don’t agree on everything. They never have and never will. if you can’t handle it, that is your problem.
