    No surprise that he turned me down on that offer with a quickness.
    I never was against the first payment . I am only against multiple payments over several months . That will just collapse this economy .

    You don't know that. You are just toeing the company line.

    I don't agree w paying people more than what they were making while working, but helping people out in a time like this is definitely not a bad thing.

    Really and tell me where the money comes from to make all those payments you want? Printing more and more dollars to give to the people will only devalue the dollar the longer you do it , especially as long as the tax thatís coming in is less than what is going out. , which WILL be the case if the economy is closed for months on end .

    This government prints up money like nobody's business. All good as long as it's for wars or exploring outer space though, right? Wouldn't want to actually help the little guys out in a time of dire need; that'd be totally outlandish.

    Unfortunately, there will be economic casualties. You can't save everything. What's more important a billion dollar airliner who has hundreds of millions of dollars in liquidity and can file for bankruptcy to protect their employees or family after family out of work, can't get guaranteed access to unemployment benefits, and are barely holding on?

    Spliff is right. You toe the company line really well.

    ''Nearly a third of 200 blood samples taken in Chelsea show exposure to coronavirus''

    ''The 200 participants generally appeared healthy, but about half told the doctors they had had at least one symptom of COVID-19 in the past four weeks.''


    ''But the Mass. General researchers ― who excluded anyone who had tested positive for the virus in the standard nasal swab test ― found that 32 percent of participants have had COVID-19, and many didnít know it.''
    Small sample but crazy. Makes you wonder

    How is going to the beach a risk?

    And stop with the unnecessary risk bullspit. It is open air. More people are getting coved-19 by going to the grocery store than going to those beaches....it is laughable on how you can even compare the two. At the beach you have to walk, swim, ect. You canít sit and do sunbathing or congregate in groups. Again, what is the risk? You are actually safer going there to stretch out than getting food with all of the ridiculous dumb *** hoarders in grocery stores....

    Those hoarders, and that includes the idiots on this board that are doing it too are complete idiots. There is plenty of food you idiots! Suppliers just canít keep up because of the hoarders. Have some common sense and shop only when you need to and not jamming the damn aisle and putting more people at risk by going to there.

    Donít get me started about beaches and grocery store comparisons. Iíll blow you away with all of the examples at a grocery store compared to going on a walk at the beach.

    If that was a Democratic Gov some of you would have had zero comment even if you disagreed with them. It it is easy now because the Fla Gov is Republican.

    Save you bullspit excuses! You donít fool me.

    And just one more thing. I do not hate anybody for their views or political stances on this or any political issue. Unfortunately this covid-19 has become political......I disagree with their views so save the bullspit that I hate people or Iím a miserable person. I just donít agree with how the opposition is stating their cases. I actually agree with a lot of the left side of the aisle, I really do, Iím basically center and will lean to what I believe in. I do not like how either side will present their cases because it is all spin jobs.

    Stop with the food to survive bullspit...

    One word, HOARDERS, has destroyed your example. They are spreading it more by going back everyday or every few hours for items they donít need.

    I'm of the opinion that the overall impact on the U.S. wouldn't be a ton different if we had Clinton, Obama, or Bush at the helm in 2020 instead. Having said that, my view of Trump is getting worse and worse by the day and my opinion on what I've just said could very well change as we get deeper in to this crisis. For instance, Trump cheering on the public protests in some of these states recently is really concerning and will likely make this situation worse for everyone.
    He sees the flattening of the curve....the problem is the opposition will never let this die until the very last case or will quietly go back to their hole if a Democrat is elected. Then all of the wrong that person does will be defended by those people who will come out of their holes to defend that person.

    The opposition will crucify Trump until the very last case. They will never agree to open ANYTHING until it is eradicated. He knows that, you know that. So what is he supposed to do, say nothing or just talk about sob stories and try to produce 50 trillion to give to everybody in the country. No matter what he does is never good enough for the opposition. And Iím not talking well he deserves the backlash on things because of the way he talks to people. What a crock for an excuse.

    I keep asking but the opposition on here canít give me anything.

    What is the day to open up?

    When all 330 million people in This country get TESTED?

    And how much MONEY is ENOUGH to go out to people?

    Apparently $1200 is not good enough. What do you guys want? $100,000 per person? What is the proper number?

    Again, Trump could give out $100,000 per person and THAT IS STILL NOT ENOUGH.

    Some of you are unbelievable and the way you all react is because for one thing and one thing only.

    Donald Trump is President and you canít handle it. Some of you are still in a state of shock when Hillary lost that night. And that is the truth. Iím playing golf today, YES IM PLAYING GOLF and will practice social distancing during my round with my friends.

    The rest of you or some, can go to the grocery stores and hoard all of the food and put people at risk by going there.

    Hope everybody stays healthy and have a great morning.

    You don't fool me either with your need to go to a car wash four times a week. You may not be aware of the reason yourself. Freudian psychology reveals the need for you to drive your vehicle into a dark, hot,wet, tunnel in your car alone 4x a week. No wonder your always so angry at DEMS and everyone. Yet the one thing you need above all else is not obtained by being angry all the time and a car wash is no substitute, lol.
