Or it could be like here. Cops are scared of getting sick more than they are of the gangs that will soon be raiding closed stores and probably moving into all the empty gentrification around here. But they are good enough to check up on the kids you leave at home alone while supposedly going to work. Then when you get hit with the notice that child services is taking away kids for neglect, you'll never know how that happened.:banghead:

If ya need stuff, there ought to be somebody brave enough to help you. drop stuff off, collect money in a nondescript and "clean" envelope if they need that and then they can run like heck and you can open the door.:eek:
Nope. All my decent old neighbors are all gone. What's left is....well, my mother used to say that the people here weren't human. I always thought that she meant that they simply weren't as well heeled and educated as her. Nope. She meant they weren't human. No body wants to know anybody. Nobody wants to help anybody. Nobody decent lives here any more. They don't talk, except when they must. They don't return a wave. They don't know you..or maybe it's just me they don't know...And I'm not sure I don't prefer that after all.

Hopefully in church and not around here. People like that tend to avoid me. Apparently I have the reputation of being odd. People around here don't do the things I do . They don't know how and don't want to learn. They're impoverished in all the ways that count and don't care.

What I'm wondering is are they going to give us these so called $1000 checks in the mail by a human? And do we have to take them to the bank to deposit them in person? Or just cash them. Why let the gov have them back when they close bank accounts? Or will they direct deposit them so we can pay our utility bills before the internet is shut off and the gov can't track us anymore?

A better question is who decides who get this money. And does everyone, since everyone is affected....or is it supposed to trickle down to us all from on high?

I suspect and the way they are wording it is all individuals will get the money as that is how it was done before. Perhaps they will cut it off at the millionaire level or something. the corporations and overly rich are getting the 90 day tax break. Though I don't understand that. Taxes have to be filed by april 15 and then one can get an extension at least thru oct. 15 if needed.

it looks like just about everyone (perhaps not millionaires). But this is not just to save you,
it's to save the country and our economy.
We need a cash infusion ASAP. The easiest way is to just cut checks and put them in the mail. This is the EASIEST way to do it (why it has bipartisan support).

Once it passes, check go out and arrive in 2 weeks

and we will "enjoy" that multi trillion dollar debt we find added to our already multi trillion debt when this is finished. Even if the virus goes away this will not end well. It's going to be pretty sad if in the meantime one of the business that has to close is the banks and they haven't even direct deposited them.

If you really want to know what it could sort of look like, I'll post the Weimar Republic link on the political thread. Those who forget history tend to repeat it.

If we don't want that debt, then we do what we should have a long time ago and tax the fuck out of the corporations that deserve it. Make it permanent. An actual UBI, funded by the corporations.

We can do it, it's just going to make the rich boys uncomfortable. Either more massive debt or that.

It's the Day of the Returned Survey...can't do because you've done it(but didn't know that), you're not what we want(screened out), will not do(they're paying how much for all that?), bad Karma(34% approval rate?really?), what is this about(why did I even look?I know better), the usual requester(I know I don't do their stuff, but I look at it every time), bloody red reviews(I like red, but not here), we don't like you(just because)....and then There are all those nice fat ones that I could do, would do, but will never catch.
