    I can imagine a world after the virus, when all the huge corporations had to sell and close down because they didn't get free money.
    It would be an entrepreneur's dream. Cheap equipment and buildings everywhere, ready and waiting to be used, and a labor force eager to get back to work.

    We'd recover in less than a decade, and be better than ever.
    We need to stop kicking the can, and deal with real problems like rational humans.

    They won't learn 'cuz they're continually conditioned NOT to learn. Just do what they're told. 'Big Brother will take care of you... don't worry about it!' That's all they ever hear.

    I must confess I (like probably a lot of people) didn't understand the full ramifications the last time this happened. It's a scandal. It's like raping the innocent: our children. Our children will have to pay for this. It reminds me of the abuse crisis in my Church. Except now it's a financial abuse, not sexual. First time it broke the Cardinals were like, "Oh, we didn't realize the priests couldn't be rehabilitated." Then came the second wave and the summer of shame. They were and still are liars!
    It does not matter whether the money goes to CEOs or "the workers", the results are equally as bad. Right now, we have an economy that is producing almost NOTHING because everybody is at home waiting out the virus. Yet here we are dumping up to 30% more Federal Reserve Notes into the economy than what it would generate when functioning normally. This accomplishes absolutely NOTHING beyond destroying the buying power of the existing Federal Reserve Notes!

    Another thought, just what are the recipients of this money going to spend it on? There is nothing in the grocery stores to buy and everything else is closed due to the virus!

    It is just the government slapping those of us that have lived within our means and saved, in the face to "help" the looter classes (CEOs and workers alike).

    Exactly what the Nazis tried to do at the close of WWII... flood England with millions in fake notes and collapse the economy. Fortunately, the war ended and the fakes were dumped in a lake.

    I can see why they are doing it. I can also see what the consequences are. I don't see a winning option.
    Denton, If you'd been part of the process, I'd bet that you'd have let us keep more of our earnings in the first place...


    Boys and Girls;

    Here's a Novel "What If" Idea...

    Go ahead and put a calculator to it...what if you had HALF of what you paid in Taxes over your lifetime of earning wealth?

    Depending on how long you've worked, how much your earned, what state you lived in or if you owned a business you might have...A new 4 Wheeler maybe? Or a brand new 40 HP Tractor? How 'bout a Loaded F250? Or maybe a Second Vacation Home at the Beach, Lake or Mountains? Or another 500K in your savings or more? Or maybe all of the above plus some if you owned and ran a small business and employed 15, 20, 30 employees?

    And what about you small business owners? More incentive to hire new employees to increase your revenue and earnings, or to reward those who have done a great job or to give you the capital to upgrade your equipment and machinery...

    BUT OH NO, The GOVERNMENT needs it...

    They are making things stay afloat. I think the Insurance companys should be fixing their companys they insure.

    This is all very socialistic. I do not like socialism.

    Yep, enjoy the inflation and enjoy your taxes going up exponentially to pay for these few pitiful months of illness. More of Slippy's hard earned money is going to go into the golden coffers of Big Government!! If they would let me line up all these politicians and just punch them in the nuts until I couldn't raise my arms, I could die a happy man. I would punch all Drunken Nancy in the nuts the hardest!!!!
