Sure the cards are good, everything is digital nowdays so computers still create the illusion of transactions, but
Here's a bit of advice: Don't overthink it.

Everything will be okay. People need to quit freaking out. We can't defeat this situation if we're all freaking out. The sky is still where it's supposed to be. It always will be, because the universe is expanding, and the sky will NEVER fall.

Not really trying to overthink it, but I am seeing the situation for what it is and is developing into since events are changing regularly.


well that 'stimulus' seems a bit moot, considering if we are lockedown & quarantined, we can't get out & spend it to help move the economy along..
I just heard of this cool website called Amazon where you can buy things. You should check it out.

…...and to the both of you....what part of quarantines, lockdowns, social distancing don't you understand?

Many farms are/were under contract with food companies and as the employees dwindle, there aren't many left to work in those sectors, including shipping those goods to the population.

Amazon recently announced halting all incoming shipments (or something to that effect), so anything you can buy is what is currently available. Even though they had also announced hiring thousands, what are they going to be doing? Whatever work is currently available isn't going to last long without incoming shipments. I've also heard & seen that many orders are being cancelled or postponed.

Think about it, life isn't going to be 'normal' in anyway tomorrow or even next week & maybe not even next month.
Our titty bars are all in the city, and the black mayor's closed em down. But he cain't do nuting about Golden Corral and Pop Eye's cause the guvner keeping them open on Trump's ok.
That’s stupid. Buffets are gone after this anyway, I’d think.

and we are likely to go on curfews and lockdowns

that should be enough cash as a stimulus to keep everyone afloat; but damn; we are mortgaging our future

do we cancel our debt with China as retaliation???

Sijnce DC is also calling for no evictions or foreclosures, due to this pandemic, there isn't the same pressure for people to pay those things. Those who can and are honest enough to do so will, but if it's not 'required' and no consequences, how many will pay their bills????????
Those bills are delayed, not canceled. They will have to pay up sooner or later.

And people still have to buy food.

Democrats are raging, illegals should have at least 2000 bucks if even Americans get 1000.

Tell me the average American wouldn't be appreciative of this infusion of cash. I dare you.
I'm a capitalist, not big on socialism

The Gub'Mit's job is to provide a level playin' field , not move the goal posts when it behooves them

or, in this case, when they want to buy votes

we live in interesting times
a totalitarian wet dream.
Are they just getting a handout?

It is not the government's job to pay people. That is the job of employers. It's the government's job to make sure employers are properly paying people a living wage with proper benefits
1000 bucks for how long?
So who's going to be producing those goods if everyone is in lockdown?????????
The government is trying to ensure their job security by passing these stimulus packages.
People need to quit freaking out.
That transcends the bullshit
You are walking around in a totally delusional condition.
Life is not fair.
what part of quarantines, lockdowns, social distancing don't you understand?

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change our world
You tell me it's an evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the wor-rld


But when we talk about isurrec-tion
Don't you know that there’s some $$$'s in bed
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right

You say we need a social solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for my contribution
Well, you know
The Fed is printing what they caa---annn


But when the doctrine hails from people who’s minds hate
All I can tell is brother you're the bait
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right
Ah

ah, ah, ah, ah, ah...



You say you gotta constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You say you've no soluuuution
Well, you know
You better find the time instead


But if you go carrying on like a stuck cow
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
all right, all right
all right, all right, all right
all right, all right, all right


~S~ w/apologies to the fab 4

No. We rebuild and we don't need additional obstacles.
No you make the country responsible for it pay for it. What do you want us to do, borrow more from China for the bailout?
I don't want to renig on our obligations and have it affect our credit line where by borrowing money gets more expensive. I'd also would rather work with China and other countries in improving how we combat viruses. I'm not interested in revenge if that's all we got out of it.

well, we know one thing for sure

WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE

this has been true since we were born, for all of us

most of us will die before Jesus comes back and after the China Flu pandemic

and yes, it does look like President Trump is buying votes

It's not really stimulus money, it's keep everyone afloat for a while money.
