Some genius is saying the best thing you could do with your Covid government check is to circulate it back into the economy by hiring hookers. Not an expensive one though. Lots and lots of cheap ones.

But that is not "social distance". So maybe just strippers but maintain a 6 foot separation.

Might as well hire hookers, we're pretty much f*ucked anyway.

I don't know if retirees will receive checks, we get one every month anyway. I heard something about anyone who has filed income tax will receive a check. Mine isn't big enough to require that I file income tax so I haven't for years.

I don't need it, but I'm certainly not one to look a socialist gift in the mouth, I need a new phone and my car needs work, there's always stuff I need and can't afford.

Hookers and strippers would be nice, but only if they do floors. The housekeeper moved away.

That's like the old joke about the hooker who tells a guy she'll do anything for $100.

"Paint my house."

I looked into the checks they're sending out, I won't get one because I don't have any earned income. But hey...I get a $1200 check every month! I'm walkin' in high cotton out here...

Republicans Found a Way to Mail Checks and Still Screw People Over

Quote:
Americans with little to no tax liability (aka, poor folks) will only receive a minimum payment of $600, unless they earned less than $2,500, in which case they get zilch. Low-wage workers who don’t have a federal tax return for 2018 or 2019—adults generally aren’t required to file one they if earn less than the standard deduction—also won’t qualify for the early rebate. (They could still get it next year if they file taxes for 2020, but by that time it will be a bit late.) Meanwhile, the payments phase down for workers who make more than $75,000 and drop to zero for those making $99,000 and above (double those numbers for joint filers)

- Slate.com

Leave it to the GOP to screw poor people. It's just what they do. Hmm

At least they're consistent. "Screw the poor."

Well, we have a motto, too: "Eat the rich."

Another President Donald (...) Trump* failure. Russian Military deployed to a NATO country to help them.

Russian army to send coronavirus help to Italy after Putin phone call

And the President Donald (D***weed) Trump* sends an offer of help to North Korea. Trump Writes to Kim Jong-un Offering Help in Virus Fight, North Korea Says

At least Italy, a friend and ally, is getting help to save lives...

*Impeached
