  1. Whatever the initial threshold number this issue remains, which is why I'm for lowering it. They aren't going to give it to everyone. The optics of that would be a killer. At the same time, it's far from a hill I would die on. I'd rather see lower income people get it than get stuck on a cut off number. I would say that if people were making $300,000 in 2019 and now need a $1,400 stimulus check, they are poor money managers though. And yes, I've seen the idea of figuring it all out at tax time in the press. I wouldn't argue with that because we all know people who don't have the se
  2. Biden can just do things like send out the $1,400 checks by executive order right? I have to agree that the income thresholds should be up for negotiation. Upper middle class people do not need $1,400. Giving that kind of money to families with incomes of $300,000 is not going to stimulate anything except maybe the stock market.
  3. I remember her name, but I don't remember her character at all. Did she play Jessica on OLTL for a while? My son's school showed the inauguration as well, but on a time delay in case something violent happened. It's history in the making, why wouldn't schools show it?
  4. How many children does Liam have now? I haven't watched in so long I'm out of the loop.
  5. MM never ceases to amaze me with hypocrisy.
  6. I meant I'm worried there will be an assassination attempt.
  7. Me either. I've come to see campaign "promises" as simply a vision of what the candidates would like to do, if possible. What a relief to have people in office who aren't going to lie every time they open their mouths.
  8. That sick feeling in my stomach is finally gone.
  9. Thank you! I hope Biden/Harris spend as little time as possible together in public after tomorrow. At least We know NP and Leahy are on the side of right.
  10. I'm a little surprised she's like him. I figured she was more apathetic than cruel. I wasn't surprised she was an awful first lady though. She never wanted to be in public service. What a wasted opportunity. Does anyone know who will be the next President Pro Temp of the Senate? I can't help but wonder given how insane things are.
  11. I hate to say it but that doesn't even rate as anything close to serious child abuse to me. What can I say? I've gone through some real [!@#$%^&*]. Plus I've seen so much worse happen to other kids. Yeah, it's not good, but that was a fairly typical teenager/mother fight, imo. I couldn't hear everything she said though. Saying "I want you out of here" was over the line I guess.
  12. The fact that there is a suspected 5th column in the National Guard is terrifying. Neutralizing all of these delusional people is going to be one hell of a job. I love watching this people get arrested. Throw the book at them hard.
  13. I really hope not, but I feel like nothing can shock me at this point.
  14. The eviction moratorium going until September and the increase in SNAP are really great. Those huge car lines for food banks are heartbreaking. So many people are going to be saved from homelessness and hunger because of this. Not to mention the mental trauma that people, (especially children) would have experienced.
  15. This guy is a real hero. We need 10,000 more like him.
  16. And yet this isn't surprising at all because they have always been trash. Money can't buy class.
  17. I was saddened to see that the maximum penalty for insurrection is 10 years. Hopeful most of these people will be charged with felony murder and every other thing they can be slapped with. I guess I must be 1% Republican because I was rooting for life in prison if not the death penalty.
  18. This is the kind of thing that makes me wonder if everyone who is or ever was in government is just a bought out whore. Barbara Boxer using the old "I can change things from the inside" lie, while worker for a Chinese company that surveils the Uighur. https://www.axios.com/barbara-boxer-biden-inaugural-foreign-agent-6022f95b-e6bd-44cc-b43c-2b7d50ffaca1.html The state-owned China Electronics Technology Group is Hikvision's controlling stakeholder.

  20. And Pence asked if he could disrupt the election! Because he was told he couldn't and listened, he's the man of the hour? Screw that. He would have subverted democracy if Yoo or his ike said it was possible.
  21. I think trying to defend against the coup was probably horribly traumatic for some of these officers. Some of these people are loyal to the country and likely felt they failed in stopping the break in of our capitol building. Imagine trying to beat back these nuts while some of your fellow officers are taking selfies with the enemy. Plus they are under a lot of criticism for not being more effective. It seems like a really different job than being a beat cop, not that I really know that. It's just my impression. If these SOB's go through with their plans to attack again they need t
