The extra $600 per week in unemployment benefits these people were getting for most was more than they made per week. If fireworks sales that I saw blown up was any indication that most were not using the extra 600 a week very wisely. But as always this younger tribe never thinks about tomorrow and what they get today in money they spend it all tomorrow and then whine they have nothing.

I had to work so I didn't get an extra 2400 a month to do stupid shit with. The essential people once again getting fucked while the non-essential get all the goodies.

Bitter Truth, you ever just thought to yourself "Damn, I'm glad I've got a pretty secure gig and I can continue to pay my bills and not have to file for unemployment"? Or are you just the guy who's always like "Why do they get that? I don't get that, they shouldn't get that".

Nevermind, we know the answer.

Personally, I'm not going to judge someone else going through this situation losing a job. I have no idea what that's like and hope I don't have to deal with it.

8:07: +1000. How would 8:03 know who was spending money on fireworks? And then to extrapolate the fact that SOME people (who may well still be employed) bought fireworks into the conclusion that EVERONE who is getting supplements to their unemployment benefits is not managing their money wisely is so absurd as to indicate 8:03 is a Trump supporter.

The economy is in collapse.
Bill Gates who was kicked out of India for using their kids as guinea pigs for his vaccines, causing them to have lifelong deformities and he isn't even a doctor.
Bill Gates and his big mouth admitting this virus would hit us two years ago.
Barack Obama for giving millions to China's bio lab to research this virus.
Accusing Trump of not shutting the economy down and then when he did accusing him of killing everyone and putting everyone out of work.
Democrats who make everyone wear masks but yet they go to parties and don't wear mask.
Let blacks riot but then bring the virus on hot and heavy after the riots to shut everything down again.
Lies about the virus being as deadly as it is.
WHO that lied to the president and public about the virus that has been around way longer than they say.
Dr Fauci who is a devout communist and has a track record of the most diseases.
Democrats are to blame for this entire thing because they are too stupid to see what is going on and don't even know who is on their side.
don't forget to get your vaccine when it comes out brought to you by Bill Gates who isn't even a doctor. Money talks doesn't it, you dirty democrats?

Lot of truth to what the bitter truth says. A secure gig you say 8:07? What the hell is a secure gig?

For example a school bus driver as my wife's friend is in Olathe gets $330 unemployment for her part time job add the 600 to that and she is getting $930 dollars a week. Now mind you this is an extremely lazy woman why she only drives a school bus. So that breaks down to her getting the same as $23.25 per hour based on a 40 hour work week. But she has never worked a 40 hour week in her life.

Next we have Joe Hardworking with his essential job at say Billy Bob's We Fix It Place, he has to work or loose all and he gets $17.50 an hour which is a salary a lot of people in this town make or there about. Plus he has to work a full 40 hour week. That's $700 a week he makes and someone making about what he does is getting $230 more a week not working.

So see Joe is getting royally fucked at his secure job every week by those not lifting a finger to do a damn thing. But I guess 8:07 and your pal @ 8:36 or you yourself again, you think that's more than fair.

Firework going off this year were 10 fold more than any year I remember here in south Overland Park/northern Olathe and the shit is illegal here. My son worked a firework stand down by Paola with a friend and they were sold out by 3 pm on the 4th, owner said that's never happened since 1976 when he started sell them. I have heard many speak of all the fireworks going off compared to years in the past. Guess there must have been a lot more extra money floating around than people such as yourself think there is.

Some people might have needed an extra 600 a month maybe but not every damn week. You do know 600 a week is same as a $15 an hour pay.

Now a lot of people were drawing the max in Ks unemployment and that was $488 a week add the $600 to that and hell these folks are for damn sure going to want to stay home getting $1.088 per week over working for it.

No too many people made out like bandits on this extra 600 a week crap while others had to work and got nothing and getting a whole lot less for doing so.

The Bitter Truth is right the essential people got royally fucked here. And the part time losers who don't want to work made a killing.

Perhaps some people are gaming the $600 in extra unemployment benefits, but certainly not everyone is--just like many large companies are gaming the Paycheck Protection Program. It happens. It's best to accept that it's not wise to let perfect be the enemy of good.

And I didn't detect an increase in fireworks this year.

Hey! Guess what I did on July 5? I spent about three hours cleaning up the fireworks and party mess my deadbeat tenants left in the street and on the lawns of my rental properties - five contractor bags worth! I know for a fact six of my eight tenants were still getting the $600 a week and now they have all indicated they are struggling with paying rent in July. I find it amazing that when I drive by the properties their cars aren't there most of the time, but on the 4th, it seemed they all had parties on my properties, then left the mess for me to clean up. God bless their little hearts. I am glad they enjoyed the racist holiday (I rent to three black families). So, yeah...$600 a week + unemployment, but apparently can put on the best fireworks show in town on my properties. 'Merica. Hope they all get COVID.
