I am laughing because Trump had no choice to make the political move to give Americans a $1000 check to get his vote.
He had to do it yet Nancy wants to take credit for it.
In my opinion it was one of most STUPID moves the government could make as most of that money will be spend on booze, lotto tickets, cigarettes, marijuana and other stupid sht to make people 'feel better.'

A move to temporarily appease the tribe before the looting starts.
I think it should have been handle by individual States to have people send in their rent receipts, mortgage receipts, food receipts, medical receipts, and so on to be paid for directly by the State and then have the Federal Government reimburse the States.

I can only imagine the FLOOD of new Medicaid and Food Stamp recipients this month.
And with no one working where is the tax base going to come from to pay for all of this ????
What great timing for such a virus to appear to be used to try and take Trump out of office.
It's gonna be a very long hot summer I am afraid.

I would gladly donate my portion of the loot toward building the wall.

You and I won't be getting any $1000 check because we are retired and on a fixed income.
I was looking so forward of buying more ammo with it too.

Checked my 12ga shotgun shells, they appear older than dirt. May explode prematurely and damage my beautiful, probably rusty, Remington.

It don't think this is a stupid move at all. This isn't like 2008-10 bailouts of bad companies. This is about staving off a depression and creating an environment for a quick economic rebound once this passes. If liquidity dries up, the chance for a quick rebound is very remote.

The problem is determining who should get it and how do you administer that only those who need it, get it.

When I got to "my beautiful", an instant list that popped up had your body parts, not a rusty shotgun. I meant face and hands, so don't go there.

I just saw Trump and, next to him, Pence. There was no comparison...Trump, with his arms crossed, looked defeated, disconnected and out of place. Pence was in charge, spoke clearly and with confidence.

I would not be shocked if they already decided to run Pence for president and remove the fear of another impeachment bs.

Yes, Trump looks broken. Like Jimmy Carter after the failed attempt to release American hostages in Tehran.

Trump needs a couch like me. The first thing I would tell him is to stand straight. No leaning forward, not tilting head. Second: stop patting your subordinates on the back by dispensing those great micro reviews. Nobody gives a sh*it about that. We want facts and the fact-based decisions, delivered the way Patton would.

Limit your appearances to when you want to announce your decisions, not the soothing words and meaningless adjectives. We are not in a kindergarten, Mr. President.

And, finally, each decision speech should start with: Under the authority vested in me as President by Article X, Section Y, and the applicable statutes, I have decided the following....

What I am seeing is not even close to it. And it's depressing.

I've been tuning in and out of this roundtable with trump and the governors and I find the Great Combover to be consistently attentive, engaged, and in control. Maybe my internet service is better.

First, you don't know that.

Second, and so am I but I still could kick some serious as* when speaking to the scared nation. I would sprinkle it with obscenities and call the fascists every name known to the English speaking mankind to make sure that America knows that I am pis*ed, not sad and depressed.

In war, survival is in anger, not loving, caring, and "feeling your pain". I don't want to feel anybody's pain.

That's the magic bullet. But I hear of bailing up cruise industries. Are cruise lines American owned or majority-owned by Americans?
If not, go and beg for money, elsewhere. same measuring stick should apply to Air Travel.$49% ownership not sufficient.
Not one American dollar for foreign-owned companies. And do not go crazy with social engineering, the liberal dream
Besides if the Feds are administering a program, count on 50% waste,
Those are my main areas of concern.

. I meant face and hands, so don't go there.

Thanks, Rich. Firearms are not my area of expertise. even though I am a staunch supporter of the second amendment

He feels he is losing ground under his feet and can`t help it. He is afraid of dying, too.

You guys are amazing, so much wishful thinking. How about he is tired I would be too if I were caring the weight of the world on my shoulders?

@Przelotnyptak1
I'd agree there should be no corporate bailouts if it was due to internal market forces or risky decisions made by the corp. But, this is something external. I don't see the benefit of remaining doctrinaire when significant economic pain will be inflicted in both the short and long run. Think of the long run economic impact of many airlines being shuttered or scaled back. IMO, this is a situation where the gov has a duty to do something-it's a part of its DNA. Again, this isn't 2008.

Maybe, (not holding my breath), but Just maybe one of the good things that comes out of this is that Congress will start acting like a deliberative body it's meant to be:

foxnews.com/media/chris-coons-congress-incentives-manufacturing-china

I can see it in his eyes. Besides, do you think he has lost his natural instincts?

It's a different situation. It's not a political rally or a debate about policy. It's managing a crisis and finding solutions to problems. You approach this type of thing differently. It appears to me that's what he's doing. I'm feeling confident he's the right guy-I didn't have the same feeling with Bush during 9/11 or the 2008 financial crisis.

Rich Mazur

I'm feeling confident he's the right guy-

I am not.
This is war. First, with the Chinavirus and, when that is over, with China.
The right guy is now working at the DoD. I just don't know his name.

Sorry AntV, for American owned companies only. 51% and up American owned. And no amendments attached to the bill or it will resemble Swiss cheese
before ready for president's signature. As for airlines, some will go under, soon to be replaced by better managed. Shortages will be short.
Big companies will increase the number of flights. Floating bordellos, aka dating services not essential.
I suspect Italy is paying a high price, for being a Mecca of Mediterranean, I might be wrong, but they are continually hatching, one outbreak after another.

If he called me I would find it. While he is pumping, I would take the calls.

Some conservative you are, You would answer his phone, with your Polish accent, unless you answer the phone in writing, you would get him arrested for being a foreign agent.

Do you imagine Adam Schiff at the White House doors leading a battalion of jackbooted thugs armed to the teeth, and CNN cameras?

AntV

Now, that, I completely agree with. I also agree American companies only, unless majority foreign-owned company has significant US investments. The other thing is that the US taxpayer, ie the gov, should get equity stakes in all companies receiving taxpayer dough.

be replaced by better managed.

This isn't about management, but about a forced circumstance that is totally outside the forces of the market.

Prze, don't get me wrong, I'm no Keynesian.

Not a chance, after reading one of your previous posts, I got nothing but respect, especially your clear, precise, understandable yet elegant English.
I am impressed, and forever jealous, Some times I dream of perfection, then I wake up back to reality. What can I do, but accept what I have

t management, but about a forced circumstance that is totally outside the forces of the market.

No doubt about it. Forces that unlashed the power of scared cry babies are playing with oncoming disaster, that nobody will stop until economic ruin, that will reshape the world as we know it. I hope that critical mass not achieved yet, and cooler heads will prevail.

Here is my unsolicited advice: too humble looks like sarcasm - especially from you, a person who has no reason to be THAT humble. That was a compliment.

Try some arrogance for a change just to see how it feels. Like this: I don't dream of perfection. I already am as perfect as I need to be.

You may like it.

That was just an example.

@Przelotnyptak1

Very kind of you, but I'm an imperfect walking typo. :)

Like this: I don't dream of perfection. I already am as perfect as I need to be.

When reading some, well, actually many, of your post I think you're a cantankerous old **** who needs a whack upside the head for some realignment, then you post something funny (like the above) and I think a perpetually grumpy pain in the ass does, indeed, have a place in the world. :)

If I turned all nice, you would ask if I am OK.
BTW, did you notice what "nice" does to threads? If not, check Dyrdymalki., that female kumbaya hangout? It kills them.
New York (CNN Business)Even though the novel coronavirus has the United States essentially in lockdown mode, the American dollar continues to be viewed as the world's safest and most stable currency.

The value of the greenback is surging, up more than 7% against a basket of other currencies -- such as the euro, British pound and Swiss franc -- since hitting the lowest point of 2020 on March 9.


The US is the best again and without turning sweaty.

Thank you AntV as I have been thinking how to put that into words for weeks.
You pretty much nailed it.

Well yeah, They just dropped interest rates to zero.
The only thing good is gas prices where I see in Kentucky they have dropped below $1.00 a gallon.

Lower interest rate usually means less attractive currency. Today, it's the safety, not the ROI.

OK, the guru of good manners, what is "bite" posting at a forum like this one? Calling employers? How about cops? Is that it?

Trump has been answering questions of Reporters live on t.v. now for the last hour.
Trump has slammed and kicked in the ass the bad ones that report bad news.
He is right in their face calling them out and then b!tch slapping them back down in their chair.
I am loving this because Trump sure ain't pulling any punches.
It's about time Trump let loose on these Liberal Snowflake fake news'ers.

Gloomy news from the USA. Goldman Sachs looked at unemployment rate rising sharp and forecasts very bad times.
edition.cnn.com/2020/03/19/economy/unemployment-benefits-goldman-sachs/index.html

They predict the report will show 2.25 million Americans filed for their first week of unemployment benefits this week - eight times the number of people who filed last week and the highest level on record.

So, the USA won`t save the world with their mighty economy. Shyt.

The whole worlds economy is taking the hit so why are you singling out the U.S. ?
Keep in mind that the U.S.D. is up 7% so it is your only hope.
The jealousy and hate for America by these foreigners gets worse every day here.
I had no idea it was so bad.
