Some are spending significant sums for self-isolation amid COVID-19

Reports suggest that in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, some amongst the ultra wealthy are indulging in grandiose ways to self-isolate in secluded areas and use private jets to get pass the bans on travel. A luxury hotel in the Berkshires is making itself available to those seeking to reserve the entire property at $38,000 a day. Cape Arundel Inn in Maine is up for rent for $19,500 a week.

EMPLOYEE NOTICE Due to the current financial situation caused by the Corona Virus and slowdown in the economy, the Government has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early). Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the Government to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination). Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers). A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate. Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance). Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the Government. Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The Government has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens. Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your TD, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle. Sincerely, The Committee for Economic Value of Individual Lives (E.V.I.L.)

Who cares? The rest of us have loving families and actual homes to hunker down in. These sad, lonely potatoes isolated within their massive hotels and empty mansions... are we really supposed to envy them at a time like this? Or hate them because they have more than us? Jesus christ, go hug your children or your dog if you have that much time to concern yourself with what a bunch of inane rich people are doing.

Imagine the headlines in other countries. "People in America dealing with COVID-19 different than we do" and all the people comment and say "F them" " they deserve to die". Thats what you idiot's sound like. No one has died of COVID-19 because they was too poor. Everyone comes to the hospital and gets the same treatment based on symptoms, not on bank account. We live in the best country on earth. Be grateful for what we have and stop feeling bad about what you dont.

There's a palpable effort to use the crisis as a pretext for a class/race conflict. In the words of John Lennon: "Count me out."

And? Does the rich not have the right to spend their hard earned money the way they want? Do we not say the same thing with people in the middle class and below? What makes being rich any different or special?

Thank Trump for giving these same people the huge tax break he gave them, while the rest of us saw little if anything. Trump doesn't care how many Americans die from this pandemic, he'll still pat himself on the back and say he did a great job. He failed all those who have died and all those who will die from this pandemic.
