So we are getting our $600 I guess? Or we might get more? I don't know, this is a mess. 

By the time they're done, you'll get a $50 voucher for rent and a coupon for a peanut butter snickers with a purchase of at least $10 or more.

Too bad, you should have made better life choices when you were conceived.

But... but... how can you be a real American if you can't eat peanut butter? 😔

I have to question whether that will even serve it's original intended use as an economic stimulus. The more important aspect of the bill for many is the extension of the unemployment benefits.

And this should apply to everybody not only US citizens. Every person around the world should get it from US government 😜

😂 That sounds like a plan! In the moment we do it I am re-cashing out and retiring. No income equals no taxes.

the wacky aspect o' this is not trump's efforts to influence an election official, but the predictable inability o' most trumpers to see anything wrong 'bout the audio.

HA! Good Fun!

I look forward to those who were pearl clutching about antifa and BLM to condemn their friend Louie.

(e): Just noticed Gromnir posted this already, so consider this a reply to his post:
 
The description says "blackmail", but I listened to all of it and didn't really hear anything that could qualify as blackmail (there are no threats or really anything he's holding over the Georgian Secretary of State), so I think that's a little sensationalist, but it was still amusing listening to Trump's pathetic and corrupt pleas.

Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

I haven't checked this topic in a while, but I came here when I found out about this. How sad is it that people who support him won't understand or accept it?

Two words my friend: agricultural exemption. Collectively I own over 300 acres all told and pay about $2k per year in property tax. And my state has no income tax. All my lessee's ask is that I keep the fences fixed and the roads graded,

Three days to go. Either that loser DJT will get kicked to the curb or we'll have a Republican overthrow of our Democracy. I'm guessing the Pubs will do just enough to avoid the latter.
