"Pelosi just ponied up another round." Let ol' Tin Head help me here - $3,000,000,000,0000 divided by 87,530 US deaths equals what?

And yes sir I agree. Let's kick our state wide open. texas

Do the math, roll it over on your tongue, try to avoid spitting it up and tell me how it would work? Add to it whatever was previously provided $1,200 a time and with PPP "loans:.

My uncle died last week from the rona. He had been living in Huntsville for last 14 years getting 3 hots and a cot. Had Hep-B from sticking needles in his arm. Kidney failure did him in but he was on a vent so he got counted.

Nope, not the case and this morning I heard they're wanting to extend the $600 bonus until the end of September.

Nancy's scheme would cost $34,000,000 for every current death. Multiply that there death rate however you want and then divide it up again and see how palatable it can be made. That's $9,200 for each and every man, woman and child in America. $31,357 for every tax payer.

They aren't finished.

Training people to look for and expect the government to fix things. Sad.

This Bill, known as the CARES Act was passed almost unanimously by both houses. Besides this "mistake" there was also a lot of bailout of businesses, including some Wall Street brokers that benefited to the tune of millions. Was this relief necessary??? Or a political ploy to garner votes in November, by the incumbent politicians??? Or was it a combination of the both???

Both Parties also got parts of their pork barrels filled.

Now that the second version of the CARES Act is about to passed, it is time for the politicians to answer a few questions. Unfortunately nobody has the balls on either side of the aisle to stop and ask if all of this is needed.

I said from day one that it was mostly a cash grab.

When I go to a restaurant I make sure leave 50-60% tip, as a tip of the hat for them. I appreciate their hustle. I bet the ones that do want to work are making a killing right now.

Friend owns several tire/wheel shops. He’s having extreme trouble getting people back to work. I told him just to hire other hands. Said it’s not that easy. Apparently good tire guys are at a premium and know they can get work when the free money runs out. One guy told him he’s off till end of July and if he doesn’t want him back then...he’ll just find another job.
Great attitude rolleyes

If you think $521 a week is a lot guess you live with your parents or have no fixed expenses like a house or vehicle. That is the max unemployment pays.

It's state max PLUS $600 right now - so that's really $1,121 PER WEEK to DO NOTHING. That's insidious.

It's the additional $600 is what's causing people to want to stay home.

Wait until they find out that the unemployment and the $600 is taxable income. A lot of these jokers will owe a bundle to the IRS next year.

"If you think $521 a week is a lot guess you live with your parents or have no fixed expenses like a house or vehicle. That is the max unemployment pays." So truly spot on and to think, people will accept that in lieu of earning wages. Free income without earning it provides cash without dignity. The absence of dignity brings other, unneeded issues to the forefront.

Someone getting the max 521 a week was making prior ABOUT 1000 a week so, no, 1121 with the 600 is not much difference but still enough to keep some at home. However, the big difference is the ones making 300 to 500 or so normally then they get maybe 200 plus 600 so that's roughly double what they normally make and can do nothing for it. Im not wired that way to take that money but a lot are. I know of a day care teacher that only works a few hours a week so her regular unemployment is only 80 a week but with the 600 she gets 680 instead of about 200. Triple money and no work. BAD BAD BAD!!

Actually the state minimum unemployment is $207, then you add the 600 fed on top and get $807.
