I fail to see why you would not accept a Government stimulus check if you get one.

I'm with you. Others can do as they please based on their beliefs, that's up to them. With the wanton waste of our governments (Federal and many states) I say get it while you can. With QE and printing presses running overtime (devaluing what people have in savings), and the $22T in debt, we are bound to have a monetary crisis. The government has no qualms sticking it to us so when there are a few crumbs to be had, take it I say.

Trump only exacerbates the debt issue. Of course there would be no congressional support to do otherwise, but he should balance the budget and pay down the debt. Since that's NOT going to happen, I'm happy for individuals that have prospered with the rising stock market, aka bubble. I want individuals to prosper as best they can until the correction comes (and I'm not talking just the stock market).

It's actually 26T. I say take it too, especially if unaware all long of what Ross Perot warned of, a giant sucking sound, which in reality everyone is hearing through the fear mongering in the media.

A friend said he paid $7 dollars for a gallon of milk tonight. He thinks it is price gouging but he don't get it.

I made it this far without participating globalism>socialism>communism, I'm at the stripe ripping the throttle hard. Plus I picked up an engine and transmission to do today and both pieces are high quality so that'll make it interesting, make me an essential worker for at least a month as well. As long as the power company doesn't go belly up corona, we're good, no debt. I've been watching this coming. There's never enough though, so I'll see how long I can keep my nose above water.

I say take it too, otherwise.

Good ole Ross. He attributed that to NAFTA and of course the sound still lingers. Don't get me started on China's favored nation status!

Total is over 10 MILLION people UNEMPLOYED in 2 weeks.
Next week is projected to be over 17 MILLION and over 30 MILLION (yes, one third of our country) in 6 weeks.

I just read (Yahoo News) where Dr. Fauci wants a NATION WIDE Lockdown until mid August.

If this lasts that long NO ONE will be working and ALOT MORE businesses will close.
One of the largest regional Subaru dealers by us has "closed until further notice" and laid off all its employees.

All because 6000 people have died in the last 3 months.

16.5 MILLION UNEMPLOYED and counting.

If this doesn't stop immediately (the sky is falling) we are ALL in big trouble.
They need to put everyone back to work NOW.

Trump is history unless he can hurry the Doctors up to give the "all clear".

There's an MIT grad doctor who claims corona virus positive tests are merely identifying exosomes. He says everyone has exosomes cells, and that exosome cells are house keeping cells in everyone for when they get sick.

Dr Kaufman claims exosome cells are indistinguishable from what authorities are claiming is corona virus.

This means anyone with a cold or even stress can test positive for Covid 19.

If the doctor is right, it also means anyone who dies, most likely will test positive for Covid 19. No matter if they died from a cold or flu.

When sheeple start questioning the disproportionate measures which has subverted their God given rights and economic independence, they'll be allowed to go back to work.

As long as the sheeple are in fear, they will be locked down to their houses, would be my guess.

My take on this is that there are a lot of jobs available if you REALLY want to work. You get hungry enough you will work. Might not be what you want to do or pay enough but for right now it is out there because the help wanted signs are everywhere, some are even placing help wanted adds on TV.---We aren't hungry yet!!!!

So what you're saying is , is that it's not enough the peoples a - holes are already the size of a basketball working for peanuts as their futures are offshored to China???

Look at the results of globalism, small business's don't have two dimes to rub together in savings to make it 3 weeks during a shut down.

Yeah, the peoples A - holes ain't BIG enough already! It's all their fault Big government has racked up HUGE deficits offshoring the US economy dumb dumb.

There's some DUMB mo - fo's in this country! It's why their a - holes will be the size of two basketballs by the time this is over.

Brainwashed dingbats with a - holes the size of two basketballs.

When main street runs out of money, they go bankrupt.

When Wall Street runs out of money, they fire up the printing press.

If brainwashed Dingbat Americans don't start asking questions, there's gonna be a blood bath in the streets.

Sir I have done quiet well working for peanuts with very little education and have not once taken a Govt handout. I also watched many lose it all because they refused the work that was available....You ever picked oranges, potatoes, slept under a bridge???? Don't tell me what working for low wages takes away from you, tell me what it gives you. And I'll be just fine now regardless. Just have to pay my taxes to take care of the free loaders taking the hand outs I am paying for. And just what are you doing to help the situation?????

I'm trying to get you to use your intuition, in order to come to your own conclusion of what is going on here. The problem is you are armed with mass man TV logic. In other words you can't put it together where the handouts are.

Think about this, we hear today there has been 17 million US citizens file for unemployment, and the stock market is up 500. Now where are the real handouts?

The FED is the buyer of last resort, equaling handouts to Wall Street. Trillions in handouts

Can your intuition put that together? Apparently not.

Turn off the TV and research why your a - hole will be as big as two softballs by the time the dollar is destroyed and the new digital World currency is rolled out.

Or keep your focus on the poors softball sized A - holes. They are as oblivious as you.

When the sheeple run out of money they go bankrupt.

When Wall Street goes broke, they're bailed out with handouts, too big to fail.

My biggest concern is that the states will run out of money in their unemployment accounts! Do they put that money, after collecting it from employees and employers, into a sacred account, or can they use some of it for other purposes? I am positive they never planned on this many filing for benefits at one time!


It's not what you've got, it's what you give, it's not the life you choose, it's the life you live.

OVER 22 MILLION people UNEMPLOYED (in 3 weeks) and growing out of 155 TOTAL million employed.

It's funny how when you talk to people that they think this is only effecting waiters and waitresses.
This is effecting ALL people.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/0...workers-layoffs.html

Doctors, Nurses, Engineers, IT professionals, Car dealerships, home builders, trades of electricians, plumbers, HVAC, mechanics, Real Estate Professionals, etc, etc.

The sad part is many owners can't get loans because they laid off their employees.

There will be a lot of people and companies going bankrupt.
And our IDIOT politicians (governors) are just burying their heads in the sand.
Here in CT they aren't even going to make any decisions until May 20, another month.
Easy math at 5 MILLION a week of people being laid off that's another 20 MILLION or more so that means
1 in 4 people will be OUT of WORK by the end of May.

Frank, are you ever happy? and you quote that liberal rag, fake news the ny times?

Since I was a kid I remember reading and hearing that everyone should have at least 3 months of emergency savings. You didn't listen Frank? I mean you and everyone else only had decades to plan and save. They have been telling us as well for decades that Americans have too little in savings and too much credit card debt. It's not like they didn't warn us frank.

Yea a lot of people are going to temporary lose their job, some maybe not temporary. Maybe now Americans will wake the fuc up and stop buying chinese garbage, stop funding the chinese military, stop providing Chy-nah the money to buy up America and stop funding the rebuilding of the great chinese empire. Yea I sure hope some big businesses go bankrupt, starting with Walmart and everyone that invested in chy-nah companies loses everything!

That said, this is not the end of the world yet frank, we will survive, our country will survive and we will be racing soon.

Ed, yes I'm happy.
Don't worry about us and $$, I'm not talking about me.
3 months of savings for "average" people maybe BUT many business owners put the money back into the business regularly (new equipment, more staff, bigger facility, etc, etc), those are the owners that are hurting right now (unfortunately I know several).

I agree about the Chinese junk.
How many times do we see it even on here about the "cheapest" this or that and people asking how is this Chinese part (______________ insert item here).
And I agree that many of these same people (unfortunately) that shop at Walmart or Harbor Freight are probably the first to receive unemployment.

I'm just trying to point out that I see "assumptions" that the unemployment is only effecting low wage earners.
It is NOT. Many professionals are seeing it now.
That's all my point was.

It's NOT the end of the world, I'm just trying to wake people up.

Nice to see you back on the board, it was too quiet without you.

as they should be!! Just unhappy to hear that some will make more with the handout than they do working. Hopefully their employers won't take them back when they exhausted their "benefits" and then decided to go back to work.
