How Bills become law by The Simpsons.

That this bit is still relevant after all these years is a sad commentary on the government isn't it ?. As Obi Wan Kenobi might put it " You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villany than the US Congress. "

Well POTUS just signed it ,proving that he too is corrupt .
I saw those news items about the signing a little while ago and was totally shocked (and dismayed). This was exactly the time for Trump to VETO that obscene bill, and send out a loud and clear message (to both the politicians and the citizens) that he is not a part of the Swamp, and he will not allow foreigners to be enriched at the expense of citizens who are receiving an insultingly paltry amount of compensation.

If he thinks this will win him any points in Washington, he is seriously mistaken. Now his enemies must be laughing at him, because he did threaten to veto this bill, and also delayed signing it, when it should have been shunted back to Congress the minute he received it. We shall see how this affects the outcome of his challenge to the fraudulent election, since he has now figuratively patted those same scoundrels on their backs (the ones who wanted to take him down since 2017).

On stimulus money. I believe that direct payments should only be in the form of a subsidy for those who are unemployed as direct result of their employer being shutdown. I don't believe in handing out free money. I also don't approve of spending what you don't have. Person or Government!
You are ignoring the fact that any payment related to the COVID scamdemic should be regarded as COMPENSATION FOR DAMAGES.

This should not be considered as unemployment insurance or any such thing. As I said earlier, if all citizens could bring a class action suit against the United States government for the incalculable harm it has done to citizens over the last twelve months (including the theft of their liberties and their mental peace), then every citizen would probably receive $2 million in damages.

This does not even take into account all the losses of lives, properties, and businesses, etc. as a result of the government allowing the BLM and Antifa thugs to go on daily rampages in almost every city, and simply stand by.

The brave vets who gave their lives for this country died in vain. The America they represented is dead.

Every country that has been financially affected by the covid19, should seize all Chinese properties within their borders and use them to pay for the damages caused by the virus.

There's no question in my mind regarding the three most important considerations'.
  • Many americans need the money.
  • It would take to long to sort through all of us and se who needs or dosn't need the money.
  • We really can't afford it because of the National Debt.
So we have two choices. Rob Peter to pay Paul like congress usually does. Or grunt and bear it like a sugery without anesthesia. Aka; Bite the bullet. all of the other cross talk is hyperbole.

Hear about the repeal of section 230 Trump tried slip into it? If he had his way sites like this would have to close down and Facebook and Twitter would be cemented as internet gatekeepers.

yes it needs updating given the monopolies in place rn. Ironically Trump is relying on section 230 whenever he goes on one of his Twitter rants. The reason he can without Twitter shutting down is because of that.

If only congress could work so fast.

The bill was signed Sunday, and my check is already in the bank. It arrived there Wednesday night.

Everyone is either (a) running scared of China or (b) already in China's pocket. The upper echelon of the United States government has been working on behalf of China for decades (no doubt having had their pockets lined by the CCP). So who will do what is right? Trump said he would go after China, and then ended up doing nothing.

There are now only two groups of Americans, and that is not along party lines either: (1) patriots (perhaps 5%) and (2) traitors (perhaps 95%). Now we will wait and see if Pence is in the first group or not. He already asked the judge to toss Gohmert's case, when it would have actually empowered him to do the right thing on January 6.
