there's a strange sense of normalcy now.

when this sucker finally blows, it's going to be like the meteor on the dinosaurs.

apparently, some other people agree as reflected in the price of gold.

If people were getting an extra $600 per week, $3000 per month, why cant they afford to pay rent?

Those who can pay it will. Those who can't could end up on the street.

Why can't they afford rent? Insulin or other drugs, health insurance premiums, garnishment, debt payments,car repairs, car payments, diapers, childcare, hospital bills, grandmas meds, doughters tuition.

There's a lot of our fellow Americans without savings and just surviving paycheck to paycheck. Being poor is not a moral failing.

Most of the evictions are section ape people who refuse to pay the lousy $50 a month while the gubmint pays the $1000. They are making way more on welfare than most people who have decent and even union jobs, free health care too.they get ridiculous money and somehow manage to not pay the landlord and then get mad and destroy the property, those people are just plain worthless.

Are you telling me that section 8 residents only pay $50 per month? I have lent money to someone in section 8 and was told that they must pay alot more than that. Maybe I am being scammed.
