    I don't know what the answer is. I do know that throwing employees and small business' a few bucks for a few months isn't going to fix the damage.

    250,000 people is not the answer to that question. I don't see the media blowing this into a sh!$ show either.

    I Couldn't help to have fun with him today. Finished the half bath remodel, and it's stormy rain outside today. Too much time on my hands.

    You must be a masochist, no laws against that I guess.

    Is this something we need to be reminded of 24/7. How about "Wash your hands" "Practice social distancing"...Today's weather is... I do think the media has run with this.
    I hate to say this, but I miss the "murder this murder that" on Chicago television. It used to be I would turn on the tv and hear about all the killings. Now all I hear about is COVID

    People will die. It is what it is. Collateral damaged should be minimized, not maximized.

    I guess the mayor of St Louis in 1918 was someone like me and the mayor of Philadelphia was someone like you.

    2 cities handled this health crisis different. The results couldn’t have been more opposite.
    Philadelphia, St. Louis had different approaches to social distancing during Spanish flu

    Different people have different priorities I guess.

    The above quotes were from two different posts but in full context.

    Okay, let's start at the employers getting government monies so the 'low level' worker bees can still buy food.

    Where I am, it started out as two weeks. Thin they added on another four weeks.

    As I attempted to mention before, those are loans that need to be paid back. After other monies run out.

    So, you apply for a g'ment [loan] un-guaranteed grant. To be forgiven if a bunch of conditions are met. If one condition is not met, that means no more grant. D'oh!

    Has anyone here tried to get a loan on top of another loan that was not paid back?

    Like I said previous, nothing on this thread really means anything, the proof will be in the pudding down the road.

    I just told my wife that since women only make 79% of what men make, I want 21% of her stimulus check.

    Now I have a ringing in my right ear.
