    Actually it seems they're milking the sh!t out of overtime

    Went for a run at the crack of dawn today, half the cars on the road were cops just parked and chilling collecting pay doing a whole lotta nothing

    LOL! We shall see. I don't have a problem paying it back - I'm sure the circumstances requiring one to do so would be just.

    Not that the government isn't pretty much a bunch of slimeballs though.

    I was thinking $1200. was about the price of one of those new studio 20 watters

    I was thinking why $1200.? then i looked at my stack of amps and remembered HEY! wasnt that about the price of those newer Marshall studio 20 watt amps?

    The $1200. worth of masks and hand sanitizer does sound good though, problem is i wont get it till october!

    Those girls have bills to pay also. I’m damn sure they didn’t think THIS was going to be the disease that stopped them from working.

    The stimulus laughed at me. I make too much.. I'll be here next year to pay for it.

    You and me both. Fortunately, I'm still working though, so I'm cool with the money going to the people who really need it.

    Honestly, it's cool. I am very very appreciative that I am able to work and not need the stimulus. If I make it through this I have no complaints.. if I don't, my wife's going to be able to buy a lot of shoes. It's all good!

    I'm putting my stimulus check in the stock market. It's been down fairly low so it's bound to go back up. Heck, I may even try and blow it doing day trades.

    I used to daytrade 10 years ago shorting the bad economy. You're gonna need more than a stimulus check to do this since it requires a constant 25K + stock account balance to be able to play in trading daily.
