Easter is a beautiful time!

Here is some good news though. More likely months than weeks but there are a ton resources being thrown at it.

Maybe. If small businesses can't recover from this, then "Big Bidniz" will have all the cards, and that won't be good for blue collar Americans.

What does that even mean though? When people say "big business" bad and "corporations" bad, this isn't like that scene from The Simpsons with the secret cabal of power brokers maliciously laughing in derision at the rest of the world. Those "big businesses" and "corporations" are all made up of people from the general public - they already work for and have stake in those companies. Absolutely there are bad apples in lots of companies and certainly there are people who get paid much more than they should, especially at the top of the ladder, but generally speaking, "big business" and "corporations" are made up primarily of people of the general public. Why do you hate the general public so much?

Maybe, but if the red tape isn't there hampering things, a small business can much more quickly adapt to the changes of consumers than a large business that has it's own inertia to deal with.

Agreed, and that's cute as well, but at the end of the day what does it really mean? You still have a company that's made up of individuals and every one of them pays taxes (whether they pay enough is a different story). And the corporation typically pay operating taxes (property, sales tax, school tax, etc - again, whether they pay enough is a different story, but they pay taxes nonetheless). And corporations still pay a tax on revenues (again, if they pay enough is another story). At the end of the day, it's a lot of taxes being paid by a lot of people that make up this boogey-thing that is a "corporation".
