    No dollar amount was placed on the check - just "Thoughts + prayers." It's meant as a dig to politicians who send out statements of thoughts and prayers to family and loved ones after mass shootings from those who expect action rather than words.

    Here's a photo, shared by a Twitter user:

    Perhaps they should receive the same checks for their salaries.

    Everyone had the same idea at the same time, that the 'thoughts and prayers' of conservatives, their politicians, and the NRA are vacuously empty garbage that has become a 'get out of jail free' card to gun huggers. As if chanting this slogan absolves them all of their complicity in the mass murder of all these people. The rest of the population has finally had enough of the fake crap conservatives bleet out of their mouths.

    The problem with "thoughts and prayers" is the time it takes to get to where their needed. So this idea is floating around the Department of Education.

    Obviously thoughts and prayers are unnecessary and unneeded. Go on about your business and don't give these injured persons a thought. Not a second thought. Don't give them a first thought. Make them meaningless.
