Still married to GDP Growth I see.

Look, why not move to Easter Island and work on those stone statues - you will be less harmful there.

Is the Failure-in-Chief trying to shut down all the non-essential stores except those that specialize in selling to the elite by making sure that only the elite have enough money left to buy much of anything?

+$200 is more than turtles zero amount in his press conference where he laughed earlier this week.

A state can and should review its own unemployment legislation particularly to assist our younger people who do not have enough quarters of reported work earnings to stay on unemployment for very long.

The bonus $600 / week has already been removed from most of our young people around here. Not sure why. May be tied into fact that their former job is gone forever or gov’t noticed they are saving some money for August survival.

I know from the 1930’s great depression and the 2009 til today great depression #2 that we are swimming in boiling hot soup. No easy answers and DC does not really care. Please vote for the very best people.

“They Live,” just happened to be on one channel. The “fuck you, PAY me” montage from “Goodfellas” & “Idiocracy” on another… I’m making popcorn & looking for “RoboCop” and Romero’s ‘The Crazies’ before the grid fails & all goes dark.
