Honest question for our Conservative friends:

Do you go with Prez Trump for more stimulus or stand with Republicans?

I'm not really a conservative or a progressive. I'm a blogger so I can't help my cynicism about EVERYTHING. Would honestly like to know what the true believers think.

I’m with the 2000.00 but get rid rid of the foreign aid and all the bullshit that’s in the bill that has nothing to do with helping Americans I’d rather see the bill die than pass it with money to Pakistan et all

Democrats should not have started with the low ball 600.

It is not the government's job to forcibly take money from some to give to others. It is not right for the government to borrow money or print money to give to others. That stimulus check is false charity, morally bankrupt, and economically destructive. In short, the perfect Democrat policy proposal.

Open shit back up and a stimulus won't be necessary. Even two grand ain't shit if you are behind on bills due to excessive government overreach and Stalin wannabes that have face diaper fixations. All this proves is that we are going to get the same old shit out of the career politicians in DC and the wannabes at the local level.

The fact Weinrich Zitzmann Whitehead Investment securities is out of business and no longer losing local investors huge amounts of money

That we have the Chiefs

For the vaccine

For peace and quiet!

The long and the short of the deal is that politicians don't want to let you have any more of your money than they absolutely are forced to. Money to them is power and they will not give any of that up willingly. They'd rather redistribute it for pork barrel bullshit.

11:34 Unknown is a good handle because basic economic theory is completely unknown to you. I would suggest that you do a crash course in Econ. 101 to try to get a basic understanding of the principles before commenting on a subject you don't understand.

11:34 FTW!

All they had to do this whole time was give every American $2000 and nothing else, but stupidity and greed for family and friends little pork projects and stupid shit always gets in the way.

And President Trump played all the idiot politicians for the fools they are by making them work through Christmas! I freakin love it! Lmao!

I'm for raising the stimulus. I'm for taking out all non-COVID related items.
In any event, I don't expect that individuals (or couples) will receive any additional stimulus payments until after the first of the year, due to fed tax implications.

@11:32 "Democrats should not have started with the low ball 600."?

You're just a bit confused there Pardner -
Democrats started with $1,200, passed way back in May! It's you Republicans who have been shitting on the American people's suffering for SEVEN MONTHS, while you loaded up the Relief Bill with sugar for all your wealthy owners.

But, that's what the GOP does, screw the People and enrich the Rich.
McConnell deliberately stalled the Relief Bill until just before the Election, trying to steal credit for it, and now Trump is screwing with it just to punish everyone for "betraying" him.

stimulus money should only go to those who pay taxes to begin with. It's their money not the government's! The leeches should look for work.

Trump spent $151M over 4 years playing golf on the taxpayer dime and not one fucking prop from the MAGATS. Not one. Cockroaches!

chuck said...

11:32 and 11:40 make good points but the economy is already trashed by way of the Chinese Bio-Hazard flu and the Democrat lock downs. The spending horse has left the barn and the American economy is a giant sucking chest wound.

The Republicans are almost as guilty as the Democrats for where we are now in this economy. Fuck all that foreign aid - which, will, like the money to Ukraine, be returned to Republican and Democrat politicians when they run for office, IF they promise, in turn, MORE FOREIGN AID.

Trump is right, send the money DIRECTLY to Americans and small business'.
