    Im working as an essential employee. Fuck your working too so your wife definatly shouldnt be getting any extra $ for unemployment. If you cant live off just your income then your living above your means.

    she paid into unemployment insurance, same as you and me bud. she is getting out what she put in. if you don't know how unemployment works in the first place, maybe you shouldn't talk.

    Oh quit fucking making excuses telling me why you think you deserve extra money. She paid into unemployment and should only get the regular amount back. There never should of been $600 a week extra. Now until you can give a valid reason as to why your wife should get extra money while you are still working and the regular essential worker doesnt make that much in a single week keep your god damn mouth shut. Fuckin stupid liberals

    because we spend that money to keep the economy from completely dying? it's a good thing you work a front line job instead of something important, cause you'd fuck us right up. you shouldn't be attacking people who are trying to help people in your position. Most small businesses did not receive any money from the PPP, so our extra $600/week keeps these local shops alive. sucks that you don't care about anyone else but yourself.

    I dont think giving you fucks sitting at home free money helping. The people making $300 a week working can spend it just as well as you and deserve it more than your free loading ass. Go suck a hard liberal one if you think your more deserving than the people that actually have to work through it making less. Who the fuck do u think you are worthless piece of shit begging for more money GO GET A FUCKING JOB AT MCDONALDS OR YOUR LOCAL GROCERY STORE THEY ARE HIRING. And quit begging for money

    If you could read, you would have seen that i still have a job. I'm "working my ass of" just like you. my wife would work, except that we have at risk people living with us. Luckily software engineering is a job that can WFH, but professional at home care for children with disabilities is not something my wife can still do without putting herself, myself, and my parents( specifically my 68yo, diabetic father) at risk. I mean, it must be nice to not have a family or friends to worry about. Maybe get educated and start working as a high skilled laborer.

    I have a family actally i have an at risk mother that still GOES TO WORK AND WORKS EVERY FUCKING DAY DURRING THIS WHOLE ORDEAL. If she catches it it will probably kill her. Only difference is she knows the world keeps fucking turning even when you dont wake up in the morning. Shit happens but she isnt goin to be afraid to live and coop herself up in the house all fucking day. Besides if your working as software a engineer your making well over most essential people that work their ass off make, yet you still sit here and argue that your family deserves it more than the single mother pulling $300 ringing up your families steaks and lobster. Just keep begging for money and talking about how bad you have it. Poor you maybe should start you a go fund me page jesus fucking christ

    if you're pulling in $7.50/hr, you should be pushing for a higher minimum wage. I feel that 7.25/hr is fucking ridiculous at this point. why are you pissed at the people who want to help you? doesn't make sense.

    I think thats the official slogan for outsourcing all skilled labor to china. ;)
    Take your service industry jobs and shut up. ;)

    Make me a burger.

    Oh, you can pack a bag so good, while being at high risk of a covid infection as local supermarket staff, not getting additional risk payment.

    Lets all work from home, says the software engineer that designs automation, that will cost more high skilled (non creative) jobs, 8 years from now, then all the folks can become food delivery drivers. ;) Oh, and you can write the most marvelous app to manage those, without a chance for them ever to become unionized, because in front of the law, they are self imployed. By app.

    Much the same way, as employers expect you to finance your home office on your own. :)

    Oh hey, I hear Wallmart is hiring. ;) https://www.washingtonpost.com/busi...many-employees-still-earn-below-poverty-line/

    Yeah, it is a shame we wouldn't know how many people could still be alive today, if he cared even a little bit about actually protecting people from this virus.


    And the "solution" isn't to make things worse, like he is.

    Overall we could of had less deaths if we left the country open and gained herd immunity instead of slowing the infection rate down and making it to where people can catch it a second and third time. We shut down the economy like the experts said, we slowed the curve like they said, and still 200k+ people dead and more dying by the day. HE DID WHAT THEY SAID INSTEAD OF STAYING OPEN. And somehow in your dumb ass head it gets twisted around and you blame him. There is a high chance that their would of been less overall deaths if we were allowed to "rip the bandaid off" and gain herd immunity instead of just infecting and re-infecting people slowly. It is a virus and has to just work its coarse, if you slow it like we did instead of letting it just work its way out it will never be over. Trump was told by you liberal fucks to close down for 2 weeks, Then a month, now its been damn near 9 months. Now we see a surge in numbers again and i see people blaming trump. It cant be because schools opened back up and little germ factories are running around spreading it everywhere....no thats trumps fault too. If the sunset was a bad thing you all would find some damn way to blame him for that. Jesus christ think for yourself for once. God damn

    It did piss me off that frontline workers got thrown under the bus. If the current administration didn't pump $4+ trillion into the stock market, we could have given EVERYONE the $600/week.

    Trump not only acted early when the Democrats and Liberals only cared about impeaching him and called him a racist for dealing with it when they weren't doing jack shit, but he took the advice of the CDC and other health experts and allowed each States Government to deal with it as they wanted. That included allowing them to "shut down". I don't see how it's Trump fault when each States government made the rules for their residents. If anything one would think the person who responded early to it when the other people didn't care about it would get some sort of pat on the back, but nope, TDS all the way. It seems like it's impossible for anyone suffering from TDS to think clearly. If you want to blame someone blame the people who made the policies, ie - your local state governments.

    I'd imagine more people would have died if Trump wouldn't have closed the borders and started the entire "flatten the curve" deal and then gave control over each State's response to their local governments. The entire time he was doing these things the Liberals were simply ignoring the virus and calling him a racist for reacting when they weren't doing jack shit. Trump then allowed the "flatten the curve" deal to go from the promised 2 weeks to the now 9 months and also signed off on various stimulus packages that gave the people who lost their jobs much needed assistance and put $1,200.00 in most tax paying US citizens pocket.

    Yeah, Trump didn't do enough. Right. So where's the outrage directed towards the people who refused to act when he did?

    Trump did not start the "flatten the curve deal." He was largely against the actions meant to flatten the curve (shutdowns, social distancing, etc.).

    Nope, you're wrong. Trump took the advice of the CDC and let the states shut down their economies. Yes, he was hesitant, but he allowed each state to deal with it as they saw fit. That begs to question though. The Trump administration started reacting to the virus in late December so where does that leave your liberal buddies that were ignoring the threat and calling him nasty names for dealing with it. Surely, their lack of response warrants some sort of negative reaction or do they get a pass because they are on your side?

    EDIT: Here's some information on what the Federal Government was doing under Trump to combat the virus. Note that most of what took place during Dec 2019 - Feburary 2020 was not supported by Democrats as you can recall their labeling and use of name calling against Trump and his administration. You also might want to have some words with some of your Democrat leaders as they praised Trump for his response to the virus - that is, after they finally admitted it was a serious problem that needed to be dealt with.
