    As I was explaining to my wife tonight this is not a SHTF event.
    COVID-19 is a serious inconvenience that people who are prepared don't need to race to the stores for.

    Stay home and stay safe.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought the $1200 checks were in addition to unemployment money. And aren’t they supposed to be extending the time limit to receive unemployment? It’s still small money, but better than nothing.

    In any event, the assholes in Washington still can’t agree on a stimulus package so the stock markets will take a big loss again today and and american citizens will be ignored again while the d—k heads fight over power and politics. Situation normal.

    Nancy right on Que. They had an agreement she steps in and throws it out. The games start all over.

    What do you like about the bill? What is in it?
    From what I understand, there was an issue with how money is used to bailout big companies. There were no guidelines on where and who gets that money. A company that receives tax payer money for whatever they want. I don't know about you guys, but I'm sick of bailing out big companies that than just line their pockets, and don't get it back into the employee's hands.

    One provision the dems are demanding is a requirement that funds going to businesses be used to keep paychecks or support going to their employees. Not be used for stock buybacks or to benefit investors. I am 100% on board with this idea.

    (How about that Mish? We finally found something to agree on!)

    I was just thinking that this is a test run and that they will now know that the virus has to be stronger and more contagious. And then mess with the electrical grid. So as soon as I have normal paychecks coming again I’m getting my shelf and rearranging the pantry and the extra closet.

    Nancy figures the economy can tank if she couldn't get her federally-sponsored abortion provision.

    I'm sure the unclean spirits controlling her can't wait for her to die so that they can enter a younger body.

    I get up at around the same time, but my subdivision is dead calm. No one is even out walking. My wife and I took a reconnoiter yesterday and saw one singular person. The neighborhood is completely dark. Usually one or two neighbors is up getting ready for work. However, without any work going on it appears everyone is sleeping late.

    That's when it just gets sad. All of these people, all of this talent, all housebound and virtually prisoners in Utopia. If I sound melancholy it's because I am.

    Mish, you are 100% liberal . You know Nancy is playing a game. Heck the Democrats already wrote most of the first bill. This is just Blackmail.
    School is out until 1:00. So far today the only class we got good work out of was math.
