"We are a bunch of spoiled brats in America. We can't shut down, take our medicine, do the right thing - no! We have to have our own temper tantrums; we have to yell at people who don't agree with us; we have to act emotionally, as opposed to intellectually, follow the science, pay people so that they can stay alive (at home), put moratoriums on everything, your bank loans, your mortgages, your business loans, and just pay, and all the companies, if you're not an essential company just shut that shit all down . . .
"Every country has fiat currency now. Nobody's backed by gold. It's all made up. When this shit is over, which it would have been in three or four months, we open back up and you just hit the re-set button on fiat currency. It's all relative scale. That's how money works. There's no Fort Knox anymore . . .
"I have the best response for people who say we just need to open it up, if you just opened it up our economy would get better . . . These (uncompensated) businesses are dead, guys. They're gone. Because our leadership didn't do the right thing . . . .We didn't take our medicine, shut it down, pay the people who really needed the money, put a freeze on everything, get over this in three months and re-open her up. And just like Europe when there was a second spike, we would shut that fucker back down again and we'd be over it in eight weeks.
"But, no! We had to sit there and cry, whine on social media and say: 'Open 'er up! Open 'er up!'
"We have no patience. We can't put off. We have to have instant gratification. We have failed the cookie experiment, guys. You remember the cookie experiment? They sat a group of kids down. They said: 'Don't eat this cookie, you'll get two cookies' (later), so the researchers left them alone, and some kids ate the cookies right away, some kids held off for a few minutes, and then ate the cookie, and some kids listened and didn't eat the cookie.
"They followed these kids their entire lives, for years and years until adulthood, and the kids who could put off that gratification, who listened, they were significantly more successful in life than the other kids."
