I voted for him but the President is wrong about the stimulus.

Everybody needs that 2,000 Republican or Democrat. Broke people don't have the luxury of a political party.

Dimwit followers can’t survive without free everything handed to them on a silver platter so of course they want more free shit.

I went to the state of Missouri’s website to see how much unemployment I would get if I was stupid enough to lose my job and with the extra $600 bucks a week the feds would give I would make almost $3700 a month on unemployment, that’s a $1000 bucks more a month than I make now and no one has said how long it lasts.

Its no wonder why people aren't looking for work.

Printing money to give everyone 2 grand? What a great idea. But why stop there - why not 20 grand? Printing money is free, at least that's what the politicians say.

The mayor boy blunder is proud he put people out of work and cost people to lose their businesses? That’s one sick fuck right there.

He’s also proud of supposedly fixing potholes, wasting money on toy train, the airport that isn’t supposed to cost us one dime remember and creating a lgbtqrst commission that we already had and paying developers to come here and build things we don’t need with our tax money.

Does he really think after setting a record for black on black murders that he’s doing a good job? He can’t be that stupid can he?

WTF is Lucas talking about? The city has rebelled against his totalitarian COVID rules and regulations. This guy is Bat Shit Crazy. He talks and makes no sense. But to some idiots I guess they will fall for it and say something like...Oh what a great mayor to give praise and act like he's so important and such a good guy. The ass hole has put everyone out on the streets and out of business except of course the chiefs who are virus spreaders oh and the tent people and rioters.

The payment should be in the form of a no or low interest loan not a handout. That would help assure that payments go to people who really need the money and not people who don't.

You all miss the fact that the "handout" you get your Depends in a knot over is merely a return of taxes to those who paid them earlier.

It was your money, and all the Government is doing is giving a little of it back to you, then expecting you to be grateful.

Except that Republicans like McConnell get confused about whose money he hands to his Wealthy Bosses, and thinks that giving it back to the people who actually earned it in the fist place is somehow wrong.

Today's Republicans need to join the Republican Party and start cutting spending, not following the Reagan/Bush/Bush/Trump pattern of cutting it from where its needed and using it for more Corporate Welfare. History shows us that only leads to wrecking the Economy.
